Blogging about blogging is a sin, redux.

With apologies to pal Dorian…Lessons the Internet Has Taught Me:

There’s no molehill so small that it can’t become a mountain; doing my best to credit weblogs and other sites where I find certain links, and expecting others to do the same for me, apparently makes me the jerk; being amused when other people are outraged is a serious character flaw; the internet is constantly in danger of cracking in half; and all those sorority girls sending me dating-spam really are interested in me!

Oh, and y’all need a hug. Come here, ya big goof!

Speaking of credit where credit is due, pal JP is the person who first drew the connection between this house and Doofus. Viva Batfatty!

Dave’s Comics Weblog Update-A-Tron 3000 is a valuable tool that every fan of the comics weblogging should use…however, apparently due to something that happened at (since problems starting occurring after its ownership changeover), and through no fault of Dave (and as has been noted by others), the Update-A-Tron is now broken. Weblogs are apparently being “pinged” at random times, thus causing the list to show sites as having updated several times a day, including sadly-missed, and not-updated sites like Grotesque Anatomy. Hopefully that situation will get resolved soon…along with’ inability to deal with quotation marks. That’s really beginning to cheese my crackers.

So, just to let you know, I post at least once a day every day before noon. Sometimes I’ll post something when I get home from work at night. I don’t “ping” my site a dozen times during the day, as the bad data being fed from to the Update-A-Tron would have you believe.

Which reminds me…sooner or later I’m going to have to break the once-a-day habit. My initial plan was to post every day for a year, in an attempt to get people used to coming to my site often to see new content. At the year mark, I was going to drop the frequency down a bit…but obviously, I haven’t. So, at this point, barring health, accident, Blogger problems, or jail time, I’m going for a post a day until the two-year mark.

After that…sleep. Beautiful, beautiful, sleep. And then probably more posting, because I’m a chump.

I was linked by a Superman message forum, and, for once, it wasn’t to the Supes-using-his-super-hypnosis-to-protect-his-identity thing (under March 2nd).

About yesterday’s posting of the War cover…Dorian, pal JP and I spent a little downtime at the shop going through some boxes of back issues, looking for stuff for JP to buy. From one of our Charlton boxes (yes, we have more than one), I pulled up that copy of War #34 and all three of us, upon seeing the cover, went “Holy crap!” JP insisted I scan it right away for posting on the site, because was going to buy it and take it home.

Man, that’s a great cover.

From Roger Ebert’s “Answer Man” column:

Q. Recently you have come under fire from readers who don’t get the humor in your columns, as in your “Dukes of Hazzard” and “The Aristocrats” reviews. The print media is the absolute hardest place to be witty. A little piece of me dies every time one of your witticisms is mistaken for a sincere attack.

Andrew Zimmer, Los Angeles

A. I hope it is a very small piece. A depressing number of people seem to process everything literally. They are to wit as a blind man is to a forest, able to find every tree, but each one coming as a surprise.

That’s enough posting for today…I need to get back to that Nigerian prince about all that money he wants to transfer to me….
