New Space Monkeys! comic is up today, cobbled together from the finest materials we could find while also working our asses off this week and 1/2 of us playing Half-Life 2.
And check out that nifty button on the left-hand rail there on this page. Vote for us on BuzzComix, 'aight?

I'd like to make the world a candy apple
Li'l Floaty Omie Head bangs his head against the wall of cynicism around him lately and makes a simple offer. Ditch the anger, get a candy and/or caramel apple. It's very simple. How many should I put you down for?
Edited to add, 11/18, 1 p.m.: Frank Rich says it so well (may require free New York Times registration), and in broadening his argument from the FCC crap to the nation as a whole, scares the Hell out of me. Nice job, Frank.
Meanwhile, I was almost swept away in massive floods last night. Well, not really. But the people in my building sure made it sound that way last night when I was exiting my employ at 1 a.m. after a day filled with computer glitches and editing fiascos. There were stories about a lady whose car floated down South Congress on its own, as if powered by magicks and other folks who were getting stranded near Congress and Riverside. I took the César Chávez-to-Mopac route and made it home just fine. But for an hour or so there, it sure felt like a disaster movie.
In other news, I'm not playing Half-Life 2 yet like a good gamer should, but I plan to get my Gordon on this weekend as soon as I've installed a new processor/heatsink and some cooling Artic Silver 5 gunk currently on their way that should get my PC gaming speeds up to astro-riffic levels.

Something goofy this way comes
New Smallville recap is up at TelevisionWithoutPity:
Every Witch Way but Loose -- What appears to be the Witches of East Brunswick take over when Lana, Chloe, and Lois are possessed by spell-casters from 1604. Sure, they're evil and all, but at least they know how to get a party started.

Today's new comic is about the show PJ and I probably love above all others, Arrested Development. It may be our densest comic yet. The only way we could jam more text in there would be to migrate to a 300mm wafer, thereby producing more comedic "chips" per silicon disc.
I interviewed Bill Maher last week and the article/Q&A appeared in today's Statesman. I talked to him a few days before the news came out that he was being sued by a woman named "Coco," so I didn't get to ask him anything about that. I'm not sure they would have printed any references to the "Mile High Club" in the paper anyway.
I'm not sure what I was expecting from the interview, but he was a lot nicer and more accommodating that I thought he'd be. After talking to Margaret Cho while she had a sandwich in her mouth for 15 minutes, I never know quite what to expect in these celebrity phone interviews.
