What are the haps my friends

January 18th, 2011: Guys remember when I linked to My Cardboard Life yesterday? Check out this comic and follow the post beneath. Pretty awesome!

Joey Comeau of A Softer World dot com gave me a very nice present yesterday, and that present was every Mario-related article on Wikipedia gathered, crossreferenced, printed and bound in a two-volume set. I now own a custom Mario encyclopedia, and it is amazing. Thanks Joey! I'm looking forward to the next time someone asks me a Mario question so I can peer over my glasses and say "Let me refer to my CUSTOM ENCYCLOPEDIA ON THAT SUBJECT" while retrieving the volumes from my study.

The other neat thing is that, coming from Wikipedia, the book credits everyone who's edited the articles - so if you've ever made a change to a Mario page on Wikipedia, your name is now on my bookshelf!


Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us!

One year ago today: i feel this comic captures the song in comic form to the very best of my abilities
