Shouts to Brian Fukushima of Bentcomics, who took some time out yesterday to chat about the tentative state of Canadian online comics. Bentcomics features frequently updated indie comics from a handful of talented British Columbia natives. Who knew the University of Victoria could breed such a nest of artistic hooligans?

"This adorable character Hello Kitty adds charm to any kitchen. This 3-piece white and blue set comes with a 4-cup automatic coffee maker, a waffle maker that makes four waffles in the shapes of the characters, and a two-slice toaster that toasts in the shape of Hello Kitty. All three appliances are made by Sanyo." [link>jos]

  “America’s Army” blog paints pretty picture:  
Posted 2002-10-04 by Tony Walsh
Wired posted a creepy story today about a weblog written by a guy named "Scorpion" (oooooh) who is stationed in Afghanistan. Seems this blog is merely an exercise in PR, being produced by the US Army on the heels of their "America's Army" game. I'm against using videogames as a recruitment tactic because, as any veteran can tell you, war isn't any fun at all.
