Manic Monday!

Well, it's another Monday. It was a busy, crazy weekend here and Easter's come and gone (and I've got no bacon left in the house!). Fun, fun, fun... now let's see what's been going on in the world.

It's Manic Monday, let's turn this mother out!


Yeah, I went there. Deal with it. You know you love it.


I think that the greatest untapped market right now is 'Easter songs'. I mean, besides "Here Comes Peter Cottontail", what is there? And yet, look at the market! That's a simple issue of supply and demand, my friends. Nothing in sight.

Well, except for this gem. My god...

Ya know what? Nevermind, no Easter Songs. We're obviously not advanced enough yet as a race to get them right.


So the highly anticipated (at least by me) book about Alex Toth, "Genius, Isolated", is due next week. I cannot recommend this enough. Having seen some preview pages and read some of interviews, its' an amazing look at one of comics' certifiable legends.

It's going to be a series of three books, looking (roughly) at his early, high, and late career. This is one of those books that I think is a no-brainer purchase, whether you're a fan of comic books, animation (Toth created Space Ghost and had a big hand in the Fantastic Four and Super Friends cartoons) or just great art in general.

Or, maybe if you're lucky, I'll let you borrow mine.


A couple links for your Monday perusal:
* Awesome San Diego food blog Sasha Eat World ,with great photos and wit. What more do you want?!?
* I've linked to it before, but if you're not reading Agent of S.T.Y.L.E., I have to wonder what's wrong with you.
* Slightly off the 'pop culture' beat, if you want an accurate, honest look at American politics, Glenn Greenwald is your man. He makes most mainstream 'journalists' look like high school reporters.


Last week (or so) I started on this piece on Heket, Egyptian frog goddess. Here's step two in the process.

Tick tock, tick tock...
