OMG, they're gorgeous! The design aesthetic is more than just manhwa (not manga BTW), there is a classic element to the style.

I'm a bit sad that a 17-year-old who "reads like a fiend" considers "malice" to be an obscure word.

I don't know that I'd be in favor of adding any long series like this to the required English curriculum; there's only so much time in a year. They're fine works for adolescents, though, and at schools that offer genre-themed elective courses for senior year I think they'd be excellent options.

Anyone visiting Southern California (Disneyland, Knotts, Seaworld, Legoland, etc) should take a day away from rides and visit the Aquarium of the Pacific. It is also one of the best dating destinations.

"War Plans" are intellectual exercises for training and evaluation. A friend of mine was involved with one where colonels had authority to use tactical nuclear weapons. There was an interesting one where we were invaded by space aliens.

"War Plan Red" is odd... The US has long had some single-minded obsession with invading Canada that I just can't understand... Happened during the revolutionary war. It was step #1 in the war of 1812, which went wrong and incidentally the White House was burned down. Then with the Oregon territory dispute of "54-40 or Fight!" fame, as if history had shown war to be such a great idea.

Whatever obsessed Napoleon with Russia seems to exist in US/Canada relations, too.

She should know better, being based in the UK. The perfect doughnut (UK spelling) has no hole, is plumper, is filled with a generous helping of raspberry jam and rolled in granulated sugar. Cannot possibly be beaten by these newcomers with holes in.

I met him backstage at "Young Frankenstein" on Broadway (It was a fun show, but just didn't have that "spark" the makes a hit). He was so nice. Even though he was 80+, he was sharp as a tack, and even remembered seeing me in "Belly Dancers from Bali-Bali" - I was shocked, because I didn't think it was ever actually released, but he said a director friend of his had a print.

I love all his movies - even the more esoteric ones like "Silent Movie" and "The Twelve Chairs".

We've disagreed on movies once before. We obviously have different tastes (in comedy, at least, which is what we disagreed on last time). I stand by what I said about the "love or hate" thing, as I've seen the film evoke extreme reactions from people, particularly the female population. While many males I know (and some females) love it. Obviously I'm not speaking for the world, I'm making a generalization.

While I certainly don't think it's some cinematic masterpiece nor is it even a favorite of mine, I think it definitely has redeeming factors: John Ritter's last performance, for one. Bernie Mac would be another, and I like the kid too. I think the film provides comic relief for some people who are unable to relate to your average, saccharine Christmas movie (although that's just my guess). AND, I think the facts about the Cohen brothers were interesting and not "obvious."

So cheers to us disagreeing all down the line! :)

Success has not spoiled the Grickle! I can understand him being awfully busy for a while - he has a day job at Laika Animation Studios that led to him becoming the co-Director of "The Boxtrolls" (Some of them looked a little familiar, didn't they?). It's nice to see him doing his simple shorts again (I see he also had a Halloween Short this year that apparently went mostly unnoticed). How long have I been a fan? I have a Space Wolf t-shirt.

Now, that's one of the best 'pranks' I have ever seen. What a blessing for those dogs and their human helpers. Thanks, Neatorama for posting this video.
