Watched this documentary online. While I don't share his beliefs, I've always found chick tracts bizarrely fascinating and always wondered about their history.

Today has been a sad day for me. I said goodbye to a lot good people being let go from my library system, not because they weren't doing a good job, and not because there wasn't a demand for their service, but because of politics and small minded, short sighted thinking. I read Phillip Pullman's statement yesterday and yours today and am grateful that there are people out there who get it. You warmed the cockles of my heart today Wil,and normally no one touches my cockles.

I think one of the most surreal moments in my TV watching history was seeing an edited version of Glenngary Glen Ross. Profanity was such an integral part of the rhythm of the dialog, I was amazed that someone thought the movie would even be watchable without it. I must admit that when I saw the title of the post, I thought you were referring to Sandman comic fans

This reminds me, what's going on with the LE HDOOL from subterranean press?

When I saw this design submission posted on Boing Boing I hoped it would force Threadless to select it. I had no idea it would happen so quick (4 days!!)Now just hoping this will come in a tie dyed long sleeve one day.

I too, feel your pain. 20 Years ago I was invited to join a group playing "Vampire the Masquerade" but banned the same day by my then boyfriend for bringing too much of our "relationship issues" into my character. *Sigh* been doomed in the role playing front ever since.

Sadly no, but perhaps even sadder was the constant chattering about what greeting card/drug stores had what lines of stickers (i.e. "Hey, I was at freddy's over the weekend and they have the new Sandylion, or my friends cousin works at the Hallmark store and told me they got some new smellie stickers in") I also had a subscription to Sticker Collector magazine, oh yeah! You should check out this site, brought back tons of memories for me, man Lazer Blazers! http://smurfwreck.libsyn.com/index.php?post_category=80%27s%20Stickers

What scares me is how many of these unicorn/rainbow images I remember owning as a sticker/folder/stationary set, but I am disappointed that there seems to be no lisa frank unicorn.

Hmmm, this forthcoming book on audio + TNG season 1 on DVD + a bottle of Jäger (or as my Grandma called it "the medicines")...... naw, no good could come of this

Is a moving average also referred to as a "rolling" average? I guess I've underestimated the popularity of Portal as well as that of corpulent mythological creatures. In any case, cool shirt, glad I got mine and sad to see it reckoned.

I picked up one of these the other day when I saw it had dipped in the ranks. I've been buying woot shirts for a while now, but I still don't quite get why shirts like the cake is a lair (11/2007) and fat unicorn (4/2008) are still going strong after all this time, while newer fresher designs seem to fade out after a scant few weeks (or months). I'm confused as to how the ranking works, since it doesn't seem to be based on number of shirts sold. The #20 lists woots sold at 2962, while yours has 5183. I'm curious to see how often this one will pop up in the next random shirt woot. Ok, I'm putting way to much thought into the inner-workings of shirt woot now, and I still have that TPS report to hand in.

Thanks for that! Battitudes is classic! I especially like that for a parody religion it doesn't come across as snarky, actually it's pretty sweet (and promotes concientious driving habits)

I'd like to recommend the Wizzywig series of comics by Ed Piskor (There was an article about them recently in Wired) which is a fictionalized account of Kevin Mitnick's exploits and the early days of hackerdom. Good stuff. http://www.wired.com/culture/art/magazine/17-03/pl_print http://www.edpiskor.com/
