General lack of respect
The new Space Monkeys! comic is up, a little late, but still on the day we said it would be up. That would be "Friday."
I want to post some photos of the house construction -- I'll probably do that later. We have a roof! People, I can't raise the roof unless there's a roof to raise. Now it's there and I can.

Li'l Floaty Omie Head and Brother of Li'l Floaty Omie Head get really into The Pixies. And a plug for Lost, which you should totally be watching instead of Smallville. That's right, fuckers, I SAID IT.

I wish Lori would post a new entry. It's one of the only sites that makes me feel any connection to Oklahoma anymore. Adam, too, for that matter.
Another Oklahoma friend just started one. She's writing a lot and that's good. Blogging is a little addictive at first, huh? You start saving little chestnuts and planning entries, but then there's the thrill of the late-night spontaneous post, too. A year later, you're like, "Oh, yeah. Pacing!" And then you start a Web comic and get really off track and begin to wonder if anyone's reading anymore.
If I still lived in Oklahoma, I think I'd be blogging my ass off.

It's interesting having a job where you have one or two days when you work really long hours and then a few other days where you sort of float along and prepare for those two long days.
I've started to imagine my work life on a line graph with very steep peaks and valleys. Tuesday is Mount Kilimanjaro, but other days are, you know, Boise.
It's almost nice to have one day of the week that's completely ruled out of any kind of planning. Tuesday night? No way, sir. Can't help you move. You say the concert's on a Tuesday? No can do. My ass is at work that night.
I bring two meals, a lunch and a dinner, two drinks, a snack for in-between and I settle in, pushing deep ass grooves into the office chair for the long Tuesday stretch.

Death be Not Chloe
New Smallville recap is up: Clark returns, in emotional robot mode, from his three-month vacation to parts unknown. He's got amnesia, and he's looking for three relics that'll complete some sort of knowledge base that'll allow Lara Croft to win a videogame. Lex is sexy, but unhealthy; Lana is showering in Paris; and two Lois Lanes appear: one for a new generation, and Margot Kidder. (Don't worry. Her teeth look fine.)
Magnificent Bastards who have a heart
For damn near four seasons, I've been saying that perhaps the best thing about Smallville is John Glover, the man who plays Lionel Luthor and plays him like a mix between Satan and Donald Trump.
For the second year, Mr. Glover is donating some time and effort to the Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk.
There are some Smallville items on ebay that are being auctioned off to raise money for the cause.
Here's a letter from the organizers:
For five years, John Glover has become a wonderful friend to the Alzheimer's Association, Greater Maryland Chapter. He has supported the chapter through generous donations, obtaining unique items to auction, as well as jackglover.org; a Web site to raise funds for Memory Walk. Being touched personally by the disease, John's dedication to funding research and local programs has been relentless. His father, Jack Glover passed away from the disease several years ago and has motivated John to actively help in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.
Originally from Salisbury on Maryland's Eastern Shore, John has always made time in his demanding schedule to attend the walk. This year he will be again attending the walk on October 2nd at the Elks Lodge in Salisbury Maryland.
This year you too can join John in raising funds through Memory Walk through www.jackglover.org. You don't have to walk to help. You can sign up to be on John's team and ask your friends, family members, and more to support your efforts. Simply go to jackglover.org and click on join my team. You will be able to set up your own webpage connected to John's, display a picture of yourself or who you are walking for, and an explanation of why you are helping. You can then send emails to all of your friends and family members who can sponsor you and immediately make a payment to your site.
Each person who raises at least $50 will receive a Memory Walk t-shirt, if you raise $100 we will mail you a long sleeve Memory Walk t-shirt, if you raise $250 John will personally sign the shirt. As an additional incentive to raise the most money on John's site, you will win Lionel's Kryptonite Key complete with a lock of John's locks from last seasons' episode of Smallville. This exclusive item is definitely a collectors' item and is limited to only a few.
So sign on now and begin to raise $$$ to help John make Alzheimer's just a memory.
For more information call Stacey at (410) 561-9099.
Do it for the MB.
New NEW comic
The updating roll continues with an even newer Space Monkeys! comic today. And if you missed Friday's comic, which was posted late in the afternoon, you can find that one here.
Smallville recap should be posted later today or early tomorrow. It's nice to be back in the 'capping game.
Let's see, what else... I still want to write about the rest of ACL fest. Time's just been at a premium lately. I'll probably try to do that tonight.
