"There's no mistaking what they study at the Redwood Neuroscience Institute. There are brains all over the place.
From the colorful pictures of brain coral that hang on the walls to the promotional key chains sporting little plastic cerebral cortices, you'd have to be gray-matterless not to notice the decorative theme at this nonprofit scientific research organization. Though it may all seem a little over the top to the average visitor, such brain mania seems excusable for someone who's spent about 25 years studying the workings of this most thoughtful of organs."

From the website:
"Introducing Mr. Wizard Micro Plush by Friends With You, the latest breakthrough in lucky rabbit's foot technology. Micro-size your Friends and enjoy their life enhancing powers everywhere!
Mr. Wizard Micro Plush features two of the most popular magical microbes from the Friends With You world: MALFI and RED FLYER, as they appeared in the Nike Lab film Mr. Wizard and the Leged of Speed (check the screen shots below). Malfi (garbed as the mystical Wizard of the East) and the omnipotent Red Flyer perform magical rituals to keep the world working in perfect order. Now you can have that same power by hanging them from backpacks, keychains, belt loops, rear view mirrors, what have you.
The Mr. Wizard Micro Plush are 3 inches tall and packaged on a full color blister card with special cut-out back for added tactility. Each micro comes with a random set of three magical luck amulets, which can be added to the tie cord for extra fortune. Collect them all and you too can be the supreme emperor of the universe."

About the Artist/Art: My name is Nicholas Gurewitch. The name of the weekly comic strip that I draw is "The Perry Bible Fellowship." By clicking on the objects on the main page of this web-site, you can discover some examples of it. If you want to view the archives, click the central figure on the main page.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE COMIC STRIP
The Perry Bible Fellowship first appeared in Syracuse University's Daily Orange. In September of 2003, it won the Baltimore City Paper's Comic Contest. It now has several publishers including The Portland Mercury, The Rochester Insider, The Birmingham Black and White, and The New York Press.
Lots of twisted cartoons in the archive. Here are a couple that made me laugh:
Stuff magazine has a pictorial on 'the other Hilton sister'. Whoo. She's a looker, all right. Doesn't have that 'rode hard, put away wet' look to her. Her 15 minutes is waxing, her big sister's time in the spotlight is soon to be waning (we hope). Wonder how long it will be before there are nightvision vids of her floating around? -- Other funny links on SnarkySpot below:
Tip Jar (For all who've kicked in a dollar or 2 recently, thanks, much appreciated!!!)
The dueling lawsuits between O'Reilly and former producer Andrea Mackris have been settled, most likely because Bill O. didn't want those "alleged" audio recordings to ever see the light of day. ("Once on the Net, always on the Net.")
The lawsuit went into explicit detail about phone sex conversations he supposedly had with Mackris. I'll never look at a falafel without that imagery in my head, thanks Bill. >:|
All that aside, this won't die quickly. Parodies abound online, and that makes me happy, because O'Reilly is receiving every bit of karmic whiplash for all those years of being a punk.
IFilm has a funny short film (at the link below) of a guy narrating the transcribed phone conversation word for word. Funny and a bit creepy.

(CBS) When Ashlee Simpson ran off like a putz from the 'Saturday Night Live' stage last week after her lip-sync gone awry, 60 Minutes cameras were there to record her embarrassing, humiliating, and utterly satisfying exit, and the reaction from show creator Lorne Michaels and other shocked (but bemused) SNL staff members.
The exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the dork parade will be part of a Lesley Stahl report about the (cough... staging of a fake 'incident' for the cameras...cough..) making of the venerable comedy program, to be broadcast on 60 Minutes, Sunday, Oct. 31, at 7 p.m. ET/PT." (full article after link)
Whatever. I'm sorry, but I smell rat poop all over this 'story'. Maybe that is too harsh, let's call it 'manufactured news' of the Janet Jackson boobie variety. What are the odds that a 'tape malfunction' would happen the same night 60 Minutes is there filming for an upcoming show? Bullshit flag on this one, move along citizens, nothing to see here but the record industry finding new ways of cleverly making waves to try to sell albums.
Back in 2001, Sun-Min Kim forever changed the course of history when she sent her then long-distance boyfriend, David Horvath, a hand-sewn plush doll modeled after a little character he frequently doodled into the corners of his correspondence with her. The apron-wearing little fellow was named Wage, and he was the very first Uglydoll. Eventually, Sun-Min would bring to life even more of David’s drawings, and what began as a huggable love-letter of sorts would result in a hugely successful line of plush dolls. (More after link)
I posted about 'Ugly Dolls' recently, this is a great interview on Crown Dozen with one of the co-creators, David Horvath. Visit David's online art gallery at davidhorvath.com.
"Fast-food giant McDonald's has signed a contract with DVDPlay to place the company's self-service DVD rental kiosks in 13,000 restaurant locations over the next several years, DVDPlay CEO Jens Horstmann, CEO of the Los Gatos, Calif.-based company, said during a presentation at the Consumer Technology Ventures Conference here."
I'm not sure if this idea is gonna fly or not. 13,000 locations participating will have a lot of coverage, but do repeat customers really wanted a movie with large fries?
the night falls in a heavy, suffocating cloak, entwined are we.
the salvation from bush we lust for
flares once, then dies again,
swallowed by a velvet ebonite nothingness.
all hope must surely perish if he wins.
his passion throbs no more.
how could he tear us asunder?
his shadows surround us all, crying,
save us from ourselves, we will follow you.
"Hello, I don't like to talk to people. This is all I have, it contains a part of me..."
The Goths have the swing states lined up to deliver four more years of dark, delicious, Anne Rice-a-Roni filled sorrow-daggers upon our black, black souls.
More tragedy after the link at the bottom of this bitter post (how appropriate, the bottom is where the slime of our souls gather... ah!... to weep!)

When SANDMAN ended, it left a void in the modern comic-book worl. A void which I tried to fill, but for the most part found other books comparatively wanting. And even when SANDMAN had been ongoing, it seemed that I could never get enough of this groundbreaking and astonishing series...(full 'About This Site' here)
This guy is a serious fan, and not in a bad way. I think it's great that he's trying out a different way of collecting on a subject by commissioning artwork from all artists involved with the Sandman series.

"Give Me Lots of Hair, Shoulder Length Or Longer"
'All the Eldar had beautiful hair (and were especially attracted by hair of exceptional loveliness).' (The Shibboleth of F�anor, The Peoples of Middle-Earth, HME) An odd little throwaway, remarkable because it's one of our only hints about what turns elves on. Beautiful voices are also implied to be attractive. The most ravishing elf ever, L�thien, used enchantment to grow her hair extremely long. This may have been the elves' erotic equivalent of being able to tie a cherry stem into a knot with your tongue. "

my paintings are portraits. i use words, images, and colors to form a cohesive structure which represents my subject, and my feelings about my subject, better than i could ever hope to accomplish using contemporary portraiture. my goal is to bring these images and colors together so as to encourage the viewer to form his/her own imagery, and therein become a part of the piece in a way that only one's own imagination could provide. if the painting "works", the viewer will be able to read his/her own personal accounts into the work, and come away feeling connected to the painting, as if they ,too, knew the subject as personally as i do.

We have one of those magnetic word things on a fridge at work, i'm always amazed at the ways people can use the limited words available to fabricate endless sexual innuendo. Like, "She loves the heat of meat". Ah, such poetry.
Now, with that concept firmly in mind, only use individual letters, mix in a healthy dose of grabby Internet assholes, code it into an interactive multi-user web page.
What do you get? Pure pandemonium.
When I visited the site last night, 70 users were vying for 'Who can be the most annoying letter thief' title. Some clown was busily grabbing letters and dogpiling them in the middle (of course, I immediately jumped in and helped him). This is very similar to the 'group drawing boards' that are around, someone always ends up speed erasing other peep's drawings or sketching out high speed/low drag cocks and/or boobies.
I dub this website a comedic disaster, and highly recommend it if you like anonymously screwing with other Netizens. :)
