Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Fun stuff on the Internets!

I've been gloomy recently, so today's links will be nothing but fun! I know there's crap going on with politics, and people are comparing Benedict XVI to Emperor Palpatine (more than one, but this is where I saw it), and your idea of fun might be different from mine, but let's roll.

Chris "Lefty" Brown is inviting bloggers to share music. Check it out here if you're interested.

Layne rules. He has found a blog about 1947 in Los Angeles. He also links to a site that tells you how you can get excommunicated, the Official God F.A.Q. (which is awesome), and the Skeptics' Annotated Bible. Fine, fine stuff.

Anonymous Lawyer! He doesn't post that often, but it's really interesting stuff. I love lawyers, by the way - the ones we have retained have been fantastic. I think they get a bad rap. It's not their fault people want to sue for everything, including fake fingers in chili! This was found via Gotham Lounge.

I love that Spaniards have nothing better to do than complain that Marvel is using a portrait of their king as a template for Magneto. I'd like to live in Spain, where they have no other problems.

A gay Republican blog! I have no problem with it, but when your Republican president thinks people like you are going to Hell, it's just weird that you support him. (I assume Bush thinks that, since he's a good fundamentalist and probably reads Leviticus to get Laura hot.)

Ian has a couple of fabulous posts about Marvel's Hitler comic. Here's the follow-up. You must check out the cover! (I would buy it, but someone wants $75 bucks for it. Sounds like Marvel needs to reprint it!)

The number of "Fucks" in Deadwood. If you don't have HBO, buy Deadwood on DVD - it's excellent. If you have HBO and don't watch it, I just don't know what to say to you. You're dead to me. This link is courtesy of Welcome to Blog, which is excellent simply because it's Portland-based. Portland is a wonderful place. I miss it.

Dark, But Shining is an interesting blog. All about horror, sci-fi, shit like that. I'm not even that into that stuff and I like reading it.

These guys hate Hummers. Funny stuff. Many thanks to the Disgruntled Chemist for the link. He does all the work, I just show it to you! He also links to the 50 most loathsome people of 2004. Better late than never, I suppose.

Buy the Cardinal Ratzinger T-shirt! And I'm totally sure you've already checked out Ratzinger's (Benedict XVI now) fan club!

A really nice essay about the Englehart-Rogers-Austin run on Detective Comics in the 1970s.

Erin tells us why she doesn't want to raise kids in the South. Scroll down a bit - there's some dead space at the top. This is just sad. (Whoops, I said everything would be fun today. Well, this is short.)

Danielle has funny "mama snaps. I would say them out loud, but I'm far too white.

If you watch Lost (and really, what excuse do you have for not watching - you're not a superhero out saving the world on Wednesday nights, are you?) then this will make you laugh. If you're not caught up with every episode, it does have spoilers, so beware! be aware!

Why "intelligent design" should not be taught in classrooms. If you hate evolution so much, home-school your kids. Don't punish others.

Great stuff about the late 1960s Wonder Woman, who ditched the costume and fought crime as Diana Prince.

Christ's miracles re-enacted on comic book covers. If you haven't bookmarked Tom Peyer's blog yet, I just don't know what I'm going to do with you.

The parallels between Jewish tradition and quantum physics. Mind-boggling!

Things you wouldn't think you'd have to say in a library. Sad but true.

Larry Young links to the Best Press Release in Human History. Wow! Well, maybe the best press release in COMIC BOOK HISTORY, but HUMAN??? Wow. Anyway, it's a good press release and all, but since Larry himself issued it, does he really get to title it "the best"? Just wondering, Larry - don't hit me! (I joke because Larry's fun.)

Will Pfeifer is back with a vengeance, with a post about BABES! Fun stuff.

All right, that's enough. See? I can be fun too. Smokey goes under the knife tomorrow, so pray to the kitty gods!

No links to my blog. I am sorry if I am not up to par lately, Greg.

Hey, Greg! Larry told me to tell you to check the date on that one. It's from a year and a half ago!

Well, heck, you're right, Mimi. Still - Larry linked to it on Friday, so I must follow! It's still a fun press release.

Sorry, Thomas - I have to spread the joy around! You can't hog the love all the time!
