The Frenemy.: A Real Copy of My Book →
thefrenemy: Listen—it’s 12am in the fucking evening morning and I just got the final copy of my first book and fuck it I have a book and Rachel Dratch blurbed the cover and all of this was my baby dream and it’s all because of you assholes—the assholes that make me be honest and stupid and furious and… Alida won!
I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel,...– Ray Bradbury (via thecatlantis)
Favorite Movies of 2012
With the Oscars tonight, I guess I finally have to reveal my favorite 10 movies from 2012. Otherwise how will you get to sleep at night with that gnawing curiosity in your gut? The 10: 10. 21 Jump Street - I thought I was going to hate this movie. And it ended up being 10,000 times the comedy it had any right to be. Plus, how about that Channing Tatum? What a charming dreamboat. 9. Moonrise...
Old Time Family Baseball: My MLB Fan Cave Platform →
oldtimefamilybaseball: With only one day of voting left, I wanted to come to you, the students and faculty of Grand Fork Elementary School, and tell you the kind of broad changes I hope to enact if elected to the MLB Fan Cave. The kind of changes that will make a real impact on your young, impressionable, My Little… At the time of this posting, there are three hours left to vote. Or, if...

Here's Another Experiment:
evanfleischer: Stories for $1. E-mail me your address, I’ll charge you $1, and then I’ll send something to you. Each story will be unique, and I won’t publish any of it — it’s yours. If you want to see what kind of writing I can do, you’re more than welcome to check this or this out, but I think that’s a better deal than what I floated last week, no? What do you think? It’s for science....

Favorite Albums of 2012
Well, I really screwed up getting this done before New Year’s Eve, but before we get any deeper, here are my favorite records of 2012. I went a little more in depth on comics here and I do movies closer to the Oscars as I’ve yet to see most of the actually good films. Though I did see the terrible Hotel Transylvania on an airplane, so there’s that. 5. Frankie Rose -...
Hellblazer to Blaze No More...Hells, I Guess
comicscansms: Hellblazer is what got me into comics. And it happened in a way that, if it doesn’t make me completely and wholly unique, puts me in a very small window of the world. I started reading comics because of Keanu Reeves. Some afternoon, probably on FX, Constantine started playing. And through some strange television enchantments, I was hooked on this dark-haired, hellblazing,...
Dogs and Cats Living Together...Mass Hysteria
It’s amazing that Ghostbusters isn’t referenced by Republicans more often. At its essence, it’s the story of an overpowered bureaucratic government agency disincentivising innovation in the private sector thereby leading to the destruction of that bastion of liberalism, New York City. Of course, maybe that’s because of the need for a FEMA cleanup crew following Stay...
The At-Home Horrorthon
This year, because of a variety of scheduling quirks conspiring against me, I missed my first New Beverly Horrorthon in four years. It was a depressing time for me as, not only is Halloween my favorite event, October my favorite month, and the ghosts baying at the border between the land of life and death my chief concern, but the horrorthon was usually the highlight of BOOFEST. There is just...
