I’ve just noticed that Copper is updating again!

If you’ve never read Copper before, go do so now. I vow to thee; thou shall know no disappointment. The webcomic is written by Kazu Kibuishi, one of a number of contributers to the fantastic Flight books, and if you’ve never read a Flight book, you’ve never lived.


Ender’s Game

16 10 2007

I’ve just finished reading Speaker for the Dead, the second novel in a quartet of books written by Orson Scott Card and I can’t recommend the book enough.

One thing keeps bugging me though. Through the two books of his I’ve read there are ongoing messages about truthfulness, honesty and the potential of humanity, but reading his Wikipedia page I cane upon the following paragraph:

He believes homosexuality to be a sin, and has called same-sex marriage a “potentially devastating social experiment.” In his essay “The Hypocrites of Homosexuality” he advocates laws against homosexual sex, “not to put homosexuals in jail,” but to encourage gay men and women to have sex only in secret “so as not to shake the confidence of the community in the polity’s ability to provide rules.” In the same essay, he claims to have a number of homosexuals as “dear friends” and speaks out against the use of “ugly words like faggot.” Homoeroticism is a main theme of his book Songmaster.

I wasn’t sure if this was just Wikipedia vandalism, but I followed links to other sites mentioning this. I guess this just shows that he’s a human guy with the same seemingly bizarre ideas we all entertain, but I just found it hard to reconcile the statements that he makes with the picture I’d built up of the author.

UPDATE: Forgot to mention that I’m not sure about the next in the series, thanks in part to this XKCD comic. Curse you again Randall Munroe!

What Kind of Mouse?

4 04 2007

Did I mention that I love XKCD?

On the subject of mice, I bought a quite expensive gaming mouse out of spite for my bank manager. Unfortunately it’s completely gash. It’s a Saitek GM3200, and allows you to change the DPI from 800 all the way up to 3200 which provides no functional use whatsoever as it becomes a futile task to keep the pointer on screen.

Also the mouse wheel button doesn’t click half the time. Rubbish.

Also, check out VG Cats’ April Fools page. Go on, I’ll wait.

Kitty Consternation

I like this webcomic, it is entirely factual.

I have found myself enthusing to Menchi that he is the cutest wikkle kitty evar. I am weak.

More NSFW cartoons

8 02 2007

To stay on theme, I’ve just found the funniest manga page ever.

Is this comedy? 😀

Check out the rest of Clone Manga for more awesome strips. There is some high quality stuff on there, not just peurile (read: fun) comedy.

Tentacle porn – NSFW!

22 01 2007

I had no idea tentacle porn existed before cunning animators figured out that being penetrated by a tentacle got past the censors, whilst a good old fashioned cock didn’t.

Apparently it’s been around since about 1820, beleive it or not. Also it gives me a chance to plug Sexy Losers, a really NSFW strip about hentai. Read it, it is awesome.
