Rare Smallville post
I don't write or read fanfiction -- I just don't and I've yet to read a compelling example to make me believe it's not a big waste of time in most cases, at least when it comes to TV show fanfic. (Like there aren't enough episodes of a given show on TV? All right, I'll give you Undeclared, but otherwise?)
But that doesn't mean I'm not intrigued by the idea of giving the big double deuce to Season Four of Smallville and letting the fan community take the reigns.
You can check out their teaser site for "Smallville 4.1" here.

I should have posted this way earlier, I'm sorry, but our pal Michelle Biloon is on Comedy Central tonight, Premium Blend 9 p.m. (Central, 10 p.m., Eastern/Pacific) tonight (Friday). TiVo that shit, NOW!
If you miss it, at least go check out her clip on that site or catch it on a rerun Sunday at 7:30 p.m. (Central, 8:30 p.m. Eastern/Pacific).

Mixin' it up
Li'l Floaty Omie Head talks about mix CDs in the year 2005, including the one he (uh, I) am working on.
So I sort of let the cat out of the bag by accident because I had nothing else to write about today.
Here's the deal. I wanted to put together a best-of 2004 CD to send out to Terribly Happy readers. I haven't worked out all the logistics yet, but the track list is there for you to see, at least. I was going to do write-ups about each song and then send the CD out to those interested (and maybe ask folks to SASE me for it or paypal $1 to cover postage.)
Like I said, I didn't have time to work out all the details, but I'll post here soon about it. In the meantime, go ahead and e-mail me if this is something you'd be interested in having as part of your CD collection so I at least know if it's worth pursuing.
The Space Monkeys! are back with an action comic today. It's infused with comic-fan goodness and I hear reading it makes your skin glow. In a good way.

I play video games
I've got two video game reviews up on yonder mothership site, one of which is the fairly decent NFL Street 2, which feels like it was code-photocopied and spliced with some random Tony Hawk Pro Skater DNA.
I also reviewed the craptastic, Sprung for the Nintendo DS which has the dubious distinction of being scripted by a writer from FOX's "North Shore."
On the Sprung review, I got to use Austin360's videogame review format, which I think is a lot more condusive to giving a better idea of what a game is about and how it plays. The short space in the paper for them barely gives you room to say "It's good, buy it" or "It sucks, give it a pass" before you're done. Videogames are an experience and I think the more room you have to really describe what they're like (even the bad ones), the sooner they'll come to be appreciated as a legitimate artform worthy of mainstream arts coverage.

EVP: Not just for smelly kooks anymore
Today's late comic (or is it tomorrow's early one?) over at Space Monkeys! is about EVP, which I explain further and mock in the news post over there. Go check it out.
Children saved from cartoon asscrack
I haven't had very nice things to say about the FCC in the last year, but finally something good has come out of their unholy crusade to regulate what used to just be considered bad TV. Family Guy on FOX last night featured a digitally blurred ass, the same ass, incidentally, that aired five years ago without complaint.
Thank God, because when we start having kids, the last thing my wife and I want our kids to see on television is Donald Duck's pock-marked greasy duck ass.
If you need cheering up after that, go check out The Smoking Gun's "Fuck you, FCC" letters. It'll make you feel a little better about the folks writing in.
