I can't ever see Indigenous Pan-Pipe Guy busking in BART anymore without thinking about giant hamsters.

Today's Girl Genius makes me laugh. The library army's slogan - "To read what you want, you have to be FREE!"

"It's happiness, Rory. It's happiness."

Something Positive totally nailed it.
On both sides, says the guy who spent hours playing on his Atari 2600. And who now has Adventure on the phone as a free app.

Randy Milholland shows his softer side... Explaining the Book of Three to a six-year-old.
Randy, it was one of my favorite books growing up too. I still have all of them.

madbaker: (Thunderstruck me)
A longtime friend of mine has been writing a webcomic (Thunderstruck) for the past five years. He drew this icon for me. I was a beta reader of the first comic book-style version (photocopies of which I still have).

He's stopping the comic. For very good reasons - he's been writing a novel and it's getting some interest, so he needs the time and energy to devote to pro writing. I'm very happy for him and I wish his career well. I'll probably pick up his novel when it gets published, just 'cause.

But selfishly, I will miss his comic.

[ profile] bonacorsi bought some saddle soap for my briefcase. I have problems saying it in any way other than "Open... Saddle soap?" [ profile] aastg and [ profile] aimeric will probably get the reference. If anyone else does, you have my simultaneous admiration and pity.

So far, The Ombudsmen is freakin' brilliant. I don't think it will go past another week, but I can hope.
