    Never forget how good Ben Dewey’s Tragedy Series is, ever.

    Nourigat’s Guide to Ghibli

    Another of my rockstar Periscope studiomates did something great. This is a feature by Natalie Nourigat for the Portland Mercury, a guide to Studio Ghibli films. It’s terrific, note it up if you have a Tumblr.

    Burma! Tobin!

    Nothing I post today is going to top Paul Tobin’s tribute to Burma of Terry and the Pirates, so I’m just sending you there. He hits all the things I love about that character, and there’s loads of beautiful art. Really, go read it.

    Karl Kesel, Mad Genius

    A good place to go on the comics internet now is my studiomate Karl Kesel’s madgeniuscomics.com.

    You Get No Explanation.

    Bah. I received no super-dope science links. Ergo, you get this and are left to conjecture.

    The Nabakov One’s The Best.

    Via BOING BOING via COOP I just read this Drew Friedman piece from the New York Observer, Guilty Pleasures of Literary Greats. Pretty tame stuff by Friedman standards, but it’s written with someone else. I’ve been meaning to do a post on Friedman at some point, but it will put me in the awkward position [...]
