Merry Christmas!

My blog is usually pretty serious, so here are a few random stocking stuffers to throw my karma back into balance...

Alien Loves Predator: Once upon a time, two creatures from H.R. Giger's nightmares shared an apartment in New York City. This is the story of Abe the Alien and Preston the Predator. If you haven't discovered this yet, start with the archive and keep reading. You'll love it. Updated weekly. Greatest hits:

Medium Large: A unique daily comic strip that really should be syndicated. Greatest hits:

Spamusement: Author takes an actual spam subject line and turns it into a cartoon caption. Funnier than it sounds. Greatest hits:

The Onion: 'Nuff said, really. It's the blooming Onion!

The rec.humor.funny Archive: Clever, short email jokes.

2FlashGames: The best place to find run-of-the-mill online flash games.

Orisinal: Unique online games. All nonviolent, and generally calmer than the usual fare. "Crank Dot Net is devoted to presenting Web sites by and about cranks, crankism, crankishness, and crankosity. All cranks, all the time." Sorted by category, from extraterrestials to conspiracy theories to religion to alternative archaeology to... Don't let the relatively short list of categories on the main page fool you, BTW--there are plenty of subcategories. It's a veritable Yahoo! of yahoos.

Weebl's Stuff: Slightly surreal web cartoons. Good, good stuff. Be sure to turn your audio on!

This year has been my first as a member of the Jackson Free Press community, which has been really valuable to me. And we're cooking up some great stuff, so stay tuned--you're going to see a lot more of me in 2006!
