Here's a dandy guide to choosing the best corkscrew.
An interesting note from Far Side creator Gary Larson, about his "children" being released by others on the net:
"My effort here is to try and speak to the intangible impact, the emotional cost to me, personally, of seeing my work collected, digitized, and offered up in cyberspace beyond my control."

Three measly little links at the bottom. It's a start. Late now, I'm going to bed. But I seem to have some of this licked. I'd like to figure out a better place for them, though.
Aidan's Christmas concert was tonight. I must say, I never expected to see the story of Adam and Eve presented as interpretive dance. Quite good, actually. Aidan's part was later; he was the goofy shepherd.
Some jaw-dropping culture jamming here, reworkings of posters from WWII, via The Comics Journal's blog. What's amazing is how few are really that incredibly over the top. Most are just sad reminders of how close we are to that world. Well worth it to drop by and spend the time watching the slide show.

Some changes you may need on your computer. These are very funny, especially for anyone who detests MicroSatan. And be honest now, who doesn't?
Exams are done! I was the second-last out today, even with us being allowed all our books and knowing the question in advance. It was quite a rigorous event. I also got my paper back, and received an A. The prof writes: "Excellent Derryl. I think you could, with more research (there are more essays out there dealing with this issue), get this published."
Nice words indeed.

Some great flash animation about the current activities in America, via Boing Boing. Very smart stuff.
More Turkish film, this time The Wizard of Oz.
Courtesy of Slacktivist comes this wonderful moment of silliness. You'll need Quicktime for it, and make sure the sound is up, even though it will do nothing to aid in your understanding.

Lots of signs of Americans being cranky with Canadians these days. There were a few quite choked about their prez being called a "moron", I know, and now that four Canadians have headed for Iraq to serve as human shields (Four! My God, it's like an enormous wave!), it turns out that some of our southern neighbours are so mad they won't visit our fine country, among other punishments. And now I see that the Drudge Report has linked to a Toronto Star editorial about moral superiority, which is certain to be taken the wrong way by all sorts of Americans.
Via Boing Boing, a review of a Turkish ripoff of Star Trek. Sadly, I doubt that Turkish cinema or video is big up here, because it sounds delightful.
A very funny excerpt and article here from Ann Coulter's new children's book. This is the woman for whom I hold the utmost enmity, and so it is a source of pleasure to read the piece.

Pictures here, of family and the new dog and such. I think after my last exam I'll try to take the time to figure out how to put up some permanent links.
