Mostly for Shaw, I'm passing along this great media-saturated post on the Electric Company from the Panopticist (also famous, and deservedly so, for magazine cover parodies).

Quick, Spidey, someone's trying to steal this 1000 point font!

Includes video of a young Morgan Freeman as Easy Reader, and hey, did YOU know that Zero Mostel, Joan Rivers, and Gene Wilder were the voice team for the animated Adventures of Letterman?

Check all that apply...

Are you cukoo for Cocoa Puffs?
Do you sometimes feel like a nut?
Would you walk a mile for a Camel?
Do you just do it?
Do you have it your way?
Are you worth it?
What can Brown do for you?
Are there more bars in more places?

Was that easy?

Unbelievably Fucking Fun

A game. It's simple to the point of elegance, easy to understand, challenging but gratifying even in the early stages, and really quite beautiful. The cats think it's the best game ever.


(What, like you had something better to do today?)

Life Under Pressure
and twelve other syllables,
just because we can.

Be brief. Be Dense.

Tell us as much as you can about your life right now. In a single haiku.

Sleety Friday Poll

What completely innocuous and perfectly allowable phrase drives you up the wall?

Mine (and no ill will is intended towards the poster who used this two posts down): "Please Advise."

I don't know what it is about it. Maybe it reminds me of every administrative job I've ever had I've been absolutely horrible at: Your reports are three weeks overdue. Please advise. Or maybe it's that I used to work with a woman who unfailingly mis-spelled it: I have not recieved your promised email on functionality. Please advice. Whatever it is, it sets my teeth on edge, and is the number-one guaranteed make-me-curse-the-corporate-workplace phrase.

Anyway. I know I can't be the only irrational one here. What's your least-favorite phrase?
