i liked the way Quitely illustrated Clark... by just taking Superman and making him slouch and change his mannerisms.

I wanted a new bag to tote around my laptop, that had some higher level of organization than my messenger bag which was a huge single opening. Just saw these awesome new laptop bags and organizers online, so i am taking a shot to see what they are like. Will give impressions when i get mine in the mail.
Here are two shots that show their cool organizing board:
Check out the site here:
I had a friend pick a superheroine for me to doodle... I am totally out of practice when it comes to females. So here is the fruits of my labor.
Also a guy on a msgboard i post on put up a sketch he did, and i colored it... here is that thing. I went a bit psychedelic on it.
Hilarious "news" story:
"The person who owned the domain CrackHo.com set it up to redirect to Sarah Palin's website on the Alaska state site. "
The Palin legal team had a totally bogus response to this OF COURSE.

Jesse Ventura is awesome. I have, of course, been a fan since his days as "The Bod".
In the event you are not in agreement i present two quotes from his Larry King appearance:
1. "[Water-boarding] is torture... It's drowning. It gives you the complete sensation that you are drowning. It is no good, because you -- I'll put it to you this way, you give me a water board, Dick Cheney and one hour, and I'll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders."
2. "I don't have a lot of respect for Dick Cheney. Here's a guy who got five deferments from the Vietnam War. Clearly, he's a coward. He wouldn't go when it was his time to go. And now he is a chicken hawk. Now he is this big tough guy who wants this hardcore policy. And he's the guy that sanctioned all this torture by calling it enhanced interrogation."

Alright, so my wife made an excellent point last night, in the League doodle Harkness looks way out of place. The reason for that originally is because i have yet to really find a way to render women with my rubber hose style i have been working on. Well i scoured the net, looked at some early 40s animation stuff, plagiarized from McBess, and what have you.
That said, here is my redo of the original with the new Harkness. What do you think?
I was making a desktop for a co-worker, and he wanted a Bauhaus theme... not the sweet band, but the cultural movement.
So i googled a bunch of Mies Van der Rohe and "Bauhaus" stuff and tried my hand at Photoshop collage. Have to admit i am pretty happy with how it came out. Even snuck some Kandinsky in.

So this is what the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen looks like in my head:
also... go read this hilarious article about the ACLU stepping up to offer defense for some politician who is trashing them.
"ACLU wittily defends ACLUSUX proposed license plate"
then go read this blog entry about child vaccines... i felt like the headline is a bit of an exaggeration, but i found the article really fascinating.

entry for this months Art By Committee.
this months text snippet was: “The harper began to sing. His deep voice was fine and sweet, eloquently expressing his intent. He sang of the bitterness of defeat and the gut-wrenching carnage of war. He sang of boys…”

My google reader is way backed up right now, and i almost just zapped everything i missed over the past couple of days. I am very glad i didn't because Same Hat has broken the incredibly sad news that Kiyoshiro Imawano is dead at 58.
Now you are probably like... who?! But don't worry i have found an excellent youtube video to demonstrate how awesome he is, and a link to the Same Hat entry about this great dude. For those of you who have seen Happiness of the Katakuris he would be the guy who played Richard.
"Kiyoshiro Imawano, RIP"
Another video, this from the band RC Succession he was a lead singer for.
