Happy that Zombies Ate My Neighbors is getting a rerelease on Switch… I never played it and know very little about it but I’ve always liked the “vibe” of this Zac Gorman comic:

From watching ABC News, you kinda get the impression Palestinians don’t exist, just their buildings

RIP to Yahoo Answers. I went back to my profile and found some questions, which I’d pretty much forgotten about, and I’ve archived them here. I’m dreading the day the executives discover My Yahoo!, the last Yahoo service I use.

Sadly, G. Gordon Liddy did not live to see the 20th anniversary of 9/11, as depicted in the hit 2005 comic book Liberality For All:

It is 2021, tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of 9/11. America is under oppression by ultra-liberal extremists which have yielded governing authority to the United Nations. It is up to an underground conservative group (known as F.O.I.L.) led by Sean Hannity, G. Gordon Liddy and Oliver North to thwart Ambassador Usama Bin Laden’s plans to nuke New York City.

The full synopsis is way goofier than I’d remembered.

Mallard Fillmore Watch

I regret to inform you that Mallard Fillmore has been CANCELLED by one of the nation’s largest newspaper consortiums:

Bruce Tinsley, creator of the 27-year-old cartoon, said he was told this week by his syndication company that Gannett newspapers across the country simultaneously dropped the comic over two strips critical of President Biden and transgender participation in women’s sports.

The strips in question:

2/20/2021

Mallard has always been shitty on this issue so I guess I’m a little surprised that only now it’s a problem.

Also, finally, an on-the-record explanation of Tinsley’s mysterious disappearance:

He said he took time off last year due to a long illness. During that time, the syndicate brought in another cartoonist, Loren Fishman, to draw “Mallard Fillmore,” and that they now split duties.

Mr. Tinsley said he has gone back to creating four of the seven daily comics per week, and he drew the two Biden cartoons at the center of the controversy.

The Biden Administration spent its first month gaslighting everyone about the $2000 and trying to connive ways to give “the remainder” to less people while telling the media about how bold they’re being a smiley saying cool

The War on Pundits

Don’t think it reads as such, but I redesigned Anthropomorphic Republican Talking Duck in 2007 to sorta vaguely resemble Rush Limbaugh. This one was the most direct reference to him, a play on the Sandra Fluke thing.

2020 FILM IN REVIEW

Continuing this again, why not! This year I watched way way more movies this year than for obvious reasons (the release of HBO Max). I’ve made serious headway into my watchlist and there’s still so much more to see, which makes me acutely aware of my mortality. I also got a Letterboxd account which satisfies my compulsive need to tag things.

Best film I saw in 2020: Yi Yi

Best film I saw in 2020 that was released in 2020: Live From the Space Stage: A Halyx Story

Worst film I saw in 2020: I bought a DVD collection of old movies at Ross over a decade ago but I never watched any of them until this year, at a pace of one a month. It turns out they’re all public domain movies (despite this, each DVD starts with a hilarious CGI-animated FBI warning of a guy in jail) of extremely varying quality. So far The Inspector General is the least watchable one.

Good movie that was maybe not the best choice for quarantine viewing: Aniara

Best character name: Leopold Dilg from The Talk of the Town

Funniest movie: The Wrong Guy
