‘sup, internet junkies. Do you need an Intervention? Intervention is an indie creator and Internet geek culture convention. Now in its second year, Intervention 2011 is occurring at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville in Rockville, MD, from September 16-18.

CALLBACKS: The Purchasing Rockstar Archives Maxie Turner is no longer working for National Liftgate, but he’s been an integral part of my NLP experience. Were it not for him, I never would have been known as “The Professor,” or more accurately “P’fessuh.” Maxie actually talks like this. Also, when it comes to getting the work […]
CALLBACKS: My Moment: The Butterfly Effect, Opening Weekend: Cowboys and Aliens I finally got to see the new Planet of the Apes movie this week. It was real good! I try not to just hand out 4’s like candy, but I honestly think I’d give it a 4/5. It is good for precisely the reasons […]

It also features Rene Descartes, of philosophy, and algebra. Okay, I promise that’s the last of the football comics. At least until the actual season starts.

You know, because TQR was already taken? The Big Lead has got some good thoughts […]
Matt Rizkallah is back with more fancomics! The first fancomic posted above is old; it was originally displayed on the Facebook page. Matt has a blog, Bloggy Bloggerville, where he shares his short stories, thoughts on God, and favorite music. It is a pretty cool place. (For the curious among you, the original fancomic by […]
