I just want to thank all of you who have donated so far... COMIC BOOK FANS ARE AWESOME!

LET'S DO THIS!

(Here's an interesting statistic from the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank... they manage to gather 1,000,000 pounds of food a month, which goes to 550 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters, and is equivalent to about 750,000 meals. If we gather 2000 pounds of food, that's equivalent to 1500 meals, or enough to feed ONE FAMILY OF FOUR -like mine- for over a year. Just so you know, food drives like this DO make a difference in real people's lives. Thank you all so very much.)

I think I want this for Christmas

Because this is where I started:



But now it's even better!

A Commodore 64 with a dual-core Atom processor, 2GB memory, NVIDIA Ion2 graphics and a Blu-ray drive?

In fact, this is the C64x, an updated version of the venerable 8-bit 1980s favorite. An array of USB and memory-card slots, along with HDMI, VGA and DVI-D ports round-out the specs. The body has been faithfully reproduced, and Commodore has even put proper Cherry-brand switches inside the keys for that old-style clackety-clack sound and super-positive key-clicks.

What could possibly go wrong?


For you late night owls, tonight there is a total Lunar Eclipse, when the moon is completely in the Earth's shadow. What's special about this? Well, it's also happening on the Winter Solstice!

The eclipse begins on Tuesday morning, Dec. 21st, at 1:33 am EST (Monday, Dec. 20th, at 10:33 pm PST). At that time, Earth's shadow will appear as a dark-red bite at the edge of the lunar disk. It takes about an hour for the "bite" to expand and swallow the entire Moon. Totality commences at 02:41 am EST (11:41 pm PST) and lasts for 72 minutes.

If you're planning to dash out for only one quick look -­ it is December, after all -­ choose this moment: 03:17 am EST (17 minutes past midnight PST). That's when the Moon will be in deepest shadow, displaying the most fantastic shades of coppery red.

FINALLY!

I just caught this news over at ICV2.com... Drawn & Quarterly will be releasing one of my all-time favorite Daniel Clowes stories as a hardcover book:


YESSSS!

Read more HERE! The "Death-Ray" story was from EIGHTBALL #23, which quickly fell out of print when it was released in 2004 and has never been available since, much to my dismay.

This isn't due until Fall of 2011, but reserve your copy today already! It's one of my favorite comic stories of all time and a true classic!
