If you're just tuning in at home, we direct your attention to today's strip
A re-iteration for those of you who haven't been reading the newsposts: the About Us page is now fully armed and operational! You can access it with the little button on the top right of the page. Digest everything you ever wanted to know (and way way more) about the humble beginnings of CXM and the CXM boys. You won't be disappointed (okay...you might be disappointed. There is, sadly, no trace of John Brooks on the aforementioned page...for your daily dose of Brooks-san, you must go here).
And if you haven't happened by the Archive recently, you might want to check it out. Not only have our previous problems been resolved, but due to the kind offices of Web-Masteh DJ K-lishus you can now find the strip titles available as well. No more searching through to find your favorite strip! Just point, click, and prepare to enjoy every iota of our cholestorol-free Funny!
Have you forsaken the traditional mail in favor of its electronic counterpart? Why not?, you may say. E-mail is faster, it's cheaper, and almost everybody has it nowadays. Well, if you're a resident of China (as no doubt many of you are!), then you may want to reconsider your abandonment of snail mail, due to the latest run of stamps! As for us poor capitalist pigs, it's time to start annoying the United States Postal Service to give us stamps which make us proud to be Americans!
In addition, I'm sure many of you have been following our forum thread in which we condemn New Line (obviously creatures of none other than Sauron himself!) for choosing to distribute the Lord of the Rings trailer in the decrepit RealPlayer format rather than pristine QuickTime. But the Third Age is over, and the War of the Trailer draws to a close with the QuickTime trailer taking to the field!
Also if you, like me, are drooling over Apple's new PowerBook G4, then send your salivary glands into overdrive and check out Macworld Editor-in-Chief Andy Gore's PowerBook G4 Diary where he puts the sleek and bewitching new portable through its paces. Don't you just love that new-computer smell? Ahhh....
Finally, last week I hyped the new trailer for Disney's next animated feature to Jason. He was mildly impressed until I mentioned the fact that the character designs were done by Mike Mignola, who is responsible for the Hellboy comic books. That, needless to say, was enough to pique his interest. I think that Disney has a chance to get into the older animation audience with this film (it is the first one in sometime that is not a musical). I for one, am really looking forward to it!
We'll see you on Wednesday with this week's columns. And hopefully Penny Arcade will return from the depths of the Net to take its place as the rightful heir to the throne of online comics!
Dan Moren is happy that the Apple logo on the new PowerBook is right side up.
