San Diego Comic Con 2009

OK, I don’t read or follow comics, or know who most of these characters are, but I got a thing for weird women in tight costumes.  So I’m always happy when a new batch of photos from one of the comic conventions shows up on the net.  Weird Chicks Rule!!

Photos from Parka Blogs.

OK, pictures!!!

All Alton, All The Time

What have I been up to, you ask? Watching Good Eats (ep. guide), of course. Alton Brown (his site), he’s kind of a badass. In a Thomas Dolby sort of way:

She blinded me

with cooking science!

with cooking science!

Sort of separated at birth, don’t you think?

You can find Good Eats at everyone’s favourite video site, or check out the fan page if you can’t get enough. I’m done with the first season… only 12 to go! I’ve found some slightly incorrect science on it, but it’s good enough for working purposes. It’s not as though it’s Cooking For Engineers.

Your tin-foil hat has gone high tech!

The Aulterra Neutralizer is the Only Product that NEUTRALIZES Effects of EMF/RF Exposure!

So get yours now!  For only $30.00 you will receive 3 puffy stickers that will certainly make any paranoid schizophrenic feel at least a little better about the voices and the radio transmitter in the stadium sized cavity in their chests.

Puffy Stickers!  Only $30.00!

Puffy Stickers! Only $30.00!

Why wear that nasty old foil hat anymore?  The voices are laughing at you for wearing it.  Get the Aulterra Neutralizer and the voices might actually stop.

The voices are laughing at your foil hat!

Aw, Damn! Now this is meat!!

I found this on another blog, along with a lot of other cool pictures.

Meat - now in oversaturated 50s color!

Why is some art valuable, and some art not?

A man in Adelaide Australia tried to pay his bill with a drawing of a spider. For some reason they would not let him do so.  Fascists!

Dear Jane, Are you sure this drawing of a spider is the one I sent you? This spider only has seven legs and I do not feel I would have made such an elementary mistake when I drew it.

Regards, David.

Hello, I am back and have read through your emails and accept that despite missing a leg, that drawing of a spider may indeed be the one I sent you. I realise with hindsight that it is possible you rejected the drawing of a spider due to this obvious limb ommission but did not point it out in an effort to avoid hurting my feelings. As such, I am sending you a revised drawing with the correct number of legs as full payment for any amount outstanding. I trust this will bring the matter to a conclusion.

Regards, David.

I understand and will definately make a payment this week if I remember. As you have not accepted my second drawing as payment, please return the drawing to me as soon as possible. It was silly of me to assume I could provide you with something of completely no value whatsoever, waste your time and then attach such a large amount to it.

Regards, David.

Huge fire and bridge collapse a mile from my house.

A fuel tanker rolled over and caught fire. The burning fuel caused the overpass above the accident to collapse. It’s going to be a long time before I-75 is running normal past 9 Mile Road.  Amazingly, nobody was seriously hurt or killed.

Jozin z bazin – Jozin from the Bog

You have to watch the whole thing or you’ll miss the guy with the sheet of glass!

English Lyrics from Wikipedia:

I’m driving Skoda 100 to camp here on Orawa.
That’s why I’m hurrying, taking a risk – going through Morawa.
The monster lives there comes out of the bog.
Eats mostly Prague citizens, its name is Jozin.

Chorus:

Jozin from the bog creeps through swamp,
Jozin from the bog closes on the village.
Jozin from the bog edges it’s teeth,
Jozin from the bog bites, strangles.
To defend against Jozin from the bog, who could imagine-
Only works an aircraft to crop-dusting.

I was driving through the village on road to Visowice
The village mayor greeted me, said to me during drinking slivovits
The one who will bring Jozin dead or alive
I’m giving him my daughter as a wife and a half of National Agrarian Farm

Chorus

I said: give me a aircraft and powder, mayor,
I’ll bring you Jozin, I see no trouble about that
Mayor helped me, in the morning I went up in the sky
The powder from the aircraft prettily fell on Jozin.

Jozin from the bog is already on white powder
Jozin from the bog is escaping from swamp
Jozin from the bog hit the stone
Jozin from the bog it is the end of him
I caught him, I’m keeping him
Money is money, I’ll sell him to Zoo

Brilliant! This is exactly what’s wrong with everything!


New Live Poll Allows Pundits To Pander To Viewers In Real Time

She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb In the shape of an “L” on her forehead

That’s Sarah Palin!

The main reason I’m posting this is the part in bold italics below.  Her former future son-in-law.  LOL!  He knocked up her teenage daughter, and said he would marry her, but then, when the election was lost, he wised up.  Now he wouldn’t even vote for her!

What a piece of work this woman and her family is.  Would you want her as your president?

I’m kind of curious to see the continuation of her bizarre meltdown.  It could be very interesting.
