I don’t think a review has ever made me want to read a comic book this much.
I’m becoming disenchanted with Tumblr’s available themes. There are several “Premium” themes that I might like better, but I’m not ready to shell out money for them, especially since I can’t “test-drive” them to see how customizable they are.
What does it mean that today is both International Women’s Day and Fat Tuesday?

Basketball is infinitely improved by free food and booze.
Just bought tickets for Pitchfork — Saturday and Sunday only, as the 3-day passes were sold out already.
Hoping like hell kids get in free again. My will-be 8-year-old wants to go too.
So who’s in? July 16-17.
There are books in which the footnotes or comments scrawled by some reader’s hand in the margin are more interesting than the text. The world is one of these books.

So I downloaded Part 1 of the SXSW 2011 torrent. (Squee!) I shuffled it up and picked the first track that came up, and here it is. Welcome to Kid Canaveral. They’re out of Edinburgh, and, unlike many of the bands I discover via SXSW, they’re actually, um, currently active. I consider it a good omen that they showed up first. Don’t know what it might be an omen of, but something good. And music-y.
And the nice thing is, I like this track. Upbeat, nice pop sound, with sort of a children’s chorus thing going on that kind of clashes nicely with the title. Sorry I won’t be able to see them in Austin (::shakes fist at sky and bellows “Some day!”::), but maybe they’ll come to Chicago one of these days.
I’m wet! I’m wet! And I’m still hysterical!
