South Pole Strip

South Pole Strip I've finally finished reading the archive for this strip. I have to say that it is absolutely hilarious! The jokes are refreshing, the storylines are fast paced. The drawings are excellent. That's the good news.

The I'm going to eat you joke might be a little stale, but outside of that, the comic is spot on! It helps that I love polar bears and penguns. Who doesn't?

Happy Reading!

P.S. I know you all were expecting a review based on one of the Daily Grind contestants and I promise you, those reviews are coming. I'm currently reading through Evil Inc by Brad Guigar. There's a lot to read!

Daily Grind

Any of you still following the Daily Grind Iron Man Challenge? I bopped on over there tonight to check things out. I don't remember the date the contest started, but I know it was in 2005. There were originally 56 comic contenders. They're now down to 11. That's pretty impressive. I just post reviews of comics and I can't manage to post on a daily basis.
So, what I thought I'd do would be to post a listing of the comics still left. I'll probably start reading their archives and post reviews soon. I tried this once before, when I was planning on reviewing all the comics still left in the competition, but there were more left then, so I might actually complete my worthy task with only 11 comics to review.
So, here are the 11 comics:
Happy Reading!

Music, Music, Music

Amazon now has MP3 music widgets -- so I'm testing this out here.  Here's a list of some of my favorite songs. 

If you enjoy any of them, please consider buying them via Amazon.  It helps keep my site free. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Comic Suggestions Requested

So, I just finished reading Bob's Your Uncle over at The Yak Shack and I was thinking about reviewing it.  Then, I saw a note that the comics over there aren't being updated regularly, so I'd hate to send you to read a strip if the freshest comic up there is going to be the last one ever.  I always find it to be a real downer to put in the effort to read the archives just to discover that the comic is done being updated.

Then, I started looking through my favorites to find a comic I've read that I haven't reviewed and I got nothing.  I lost my huge comic list when my computer crashed before Christmas and I haven't had a chance to build it back up.

Which brings me to this:  send me your suggestions.  Either post a link here or send an email.  I'll start reviewing what you send.

Happy Reading!

George Carlin

On my way into work this morning, I heard the news that George Carlin passed away yesterday from a heart attack.  I can't tell you how bummed I am.  I love George Carlin and quote him often -- even when I didn't realize it was him I was quoting!  (Case in point:  Everyone who drives slower than me is a moron and everyone who drives faster is a manaic.  I always thought I came up with that, but it was Carlin.)

I remember listening to Class Clown when I was around 15 or 16.  The album changed my life and made me a Carlin fan.  I loved watching him in anything he chose to do -- stand up, movies or TV. 

He will be truly missed.

God Bless

Posting via Wii

I'll make this quick.
I'm posting via my Wii browser because I left my power cord for the laptop at work. I could have not posted at all, but what fun would that be?
1. This is hard to do without a regular keyboard.
2. Watching web videoes is a slow process.
3. The guys at Least I could do are sick -- watch the video -- but funny.

I've been trying to finish reading the archive to George for the past month. I've been dealing with family and work issues and reading comics has been hit and miss. But, on to George...
I couldn't find a logo for George, so I swiped a comic. This is the one from 6/18. This comic is about a guy named George -- stands to reason -- his sane girlfriend, Amanda, and a hilarious cast of characters. If you lead a very quiet and unassuming life, these are the kinds or nuts you'd like to have hanging around. If you're life is like a granola bar, you're all ready hanging with a cast such as these.
I truly think you'll enjoy this comic. I know that I have enjoyed the many laughs provided by the comic.
Happy Reading!

Flaky Pastry

So, I've got to tell you all, I'm pissed. Absolutely pissed. Here's why. I'm done reading the archives for Flaky Pastry and I can't wait to know what happens next. There are three storylines going on and now I've caught up, which means I have to wait for the next update and the comic only updates once a week.
What am I going to do for a week?!?
I know what you should do this week -- start reading the archives of Flaky Pastry.

Happy Reading!

Apathetic Rant

I couldn't find a logo on the site and I didn't finish reading the entire archive, but I'm still going to recommend this comic. It's usually three panels long and tells a thought-provoking joke. I'm tired, so this review sucks, but the comic doesn't.

Happy Reading!
