Cool Blog stuff and X-Mas just around the corner.

Blogging is fun

Pop Culture Crash has some pretty interesting things to say about Bugs Bunny.

I've been over to Blog Lines trying to figure out how the hell I want it to work.

The X-Men are awesome. I've been a comics fan since I taught myself to read with them. The X3 trailer is out and about, but I haven't been able to get it to work for my. Here are some pictures, though:
Colossus!
Beast
Wolverine

Some shocking news to the indie-community: The Decemberists sign to Capitol Records

"The idea of reaching a wider audience has become really attractive," Meloy said. "It just felt like we had tapped out the resources of Kill Rock Stars. We could have stayed on that label until the end of time, putting out proper Decemberists records that sold x amount of copies. But there was a general thought after this last tour that the music and the stage show were evolving. We felt like there was an opportunity for something bigger."

Sigh. Well, it worked out well for Death Cab, let's just hope it doesn't go all Cave-In on them.

Christmas gifts for everyone!

I've been tooling around the internet looking for a gift for some special people in my life. Rather than finding gifts for them, though, I've found all sorts of goodies that I want.

Atomic Books reported in their Blog recently that Penguin is no releasing classics with covers illustrated by cartoonists. Their first release is a copy of Voltaire's Candide, cover by Chris Ware . Apparently we can expect books illustrated by Art Spiegelman, Charles Burns, and Seth in the new year.

I'm guessing that Penguin was more than impressed with McSweeney's #13.


Galaxor

Check These badboys out. Designer flash drives meant to look like little critters. How cool is that?


Tara

Artist Tara McPherson has been a favorite of mine for quite a while now. She's got some fantastic Prints available, not to mention Merch and stuff.


Pin-Up/

Speaking of artists, Katsuya Terada has a book of his artwork out with Dark Horse. He draws pretty things.


Buena

Small press Buena Ventura has some fantastic looking small-run books available. A few look pretty interesting, from Tom Gauld's two volumes of 3 Very Small Comics to Julie Doucet's Sophia Punt: Collages (of Words) series. Plus a book by Adrian Tomine!


Plain

Plain Mabel is a little boutique of designer productions. They've got some pretty cool stuff, including patches, buttons, and stuffed toys.


Critter/

Bigger Krissy has some cool unique, hand-made stuffed animals.


Opioid/

Arist/Designer Shawnimal has some cool prints and stickers at his own store, not to mention some buttons and things over at Plain Mabel.


Sugar Beats is another designer that makes handmade treasures. In this case, bags for the purse-holder in your family or relationship.


Santa

Kid Robot, who I referenced a few days ago, has scores and scores of awesome toys for the kid or collector in your hearts. Here are some of my favorites:

Giant
Skeleton
One
Speaker
Kitty Zombie Wage/

I had not yet seen that picture of Colossus and that makes me pretty (puts thumbs up) stoked! I have yet to get that FUCKING teaser to work, goddamn you Quicktime!

And yeah, I have a hard time shopping for other people because let's admit it, whose interests do you know better than your own?

xoxo.
