Here’s a look at the upfront presentation for NBC’s new drama “Journeyman.”










For crying out loud, will someone leak this to P2P or somewhere? (And email me to let me know!!)

I want to see this soooo much!

Quaker Oats: Sorry-Assed Bribe Arrives In Mail

July 28, 2007

This in just moments ago:


The shitass card below the sorry-ass $4 (four dollars!!!) coupon, obliterated by the flash, has this treacly bullshit on it:

We value your business, your comments, and your loyalty to our products.

Thanks for contacting us.

No you fucking don’t!

You don’t value my business — you’ve killed the snack I crave!

You don’t value my comments — you’ve dug into a foxhole and buried your asses!

You don’t value my loyalty — see truth about valuing my business!

Next week I get nuclear on yo’ asses.

Jason Starr’s Got A Short Story For Sale On Amazon

July 28, 2007

Mystery author Jason Starr (who did the tag team dream team of co-writing a novel with Ken Bruen!!) sent a MySpace Bulletin to let everyone know he’s got a short story called The Bully up on for just forty-nine cents (Christ, you can’t buy a comic book for that!).

He discusses it in a video short here. (Scroll down for actual video as screencapped below.)


Warren Ellis Got A New Gig

July 28, 2007

Warren Ellis is writing Astonishing X-Men

Personally, I hate this news. I don’t buy mainstream comics.

Once upon a time, you could go to a corner store and just happily and merrily and cheerfully buy a comic book. And if you didn’t have the spare change on the day it hit the stands, you could rest assured it’d still be there a week later.

These goddammed days, you have to go to a fucking boutique and go through all these nasty contortions of begging and pleading to some T-shirted sot with facial boils to — get this! — reserve you a fucking copy of a book you Just Know is going to be gone before it’s even put on a rack for sale. And the prices are such that you have to budget for them. This ain’t no more spare change shit.

I’ll probably have to wait for them to be assembled in collections before I get to read them.

Congratulations to Ellis.

Congratulations To Victor Gischler!

From his blog:

It seems I’ve been nominated for an Anthony Award. I would like to humbly thank the people involved in making this happen. I’m overwhelmed and grateful. Truly.

Foldera Getting Ready To Go Tits Up

In this same statement, it was revealed that Foldera was burning $650,000 per month. That’s right. These fucktards were spending $7.8 million per year to make a web app that organizes files and calendars and shit.


So I guess the end lesson here is that businesses aren’t willing to pay for a service where employees can keep confidential files & calendars on someone else’s servers, without a sysop that you can wake up at 4AM, and that is accessible from anywhere on the internet. Huh. Go figure.

Lovely work, men. Line up and kill the next bastard.

On The Upcoming Coup That’s Not Actually Upcoming

Yes, I could be wrong about all of this, which means I’ll be among the first to be Guantanamoed when the revolution comes — assuming they don’t just get it over with and shoot me in the head.
