Growing up, I always hated dealing with snow. But in New York City, it's great. Here's why:
• If you commute in to an office job -- from upstate, New Jersey, or Connecticut -- you have an excuse to stay home, goof off, and/or spend time with your kids.
• If you're younger and work for the people described above, you probably live in Brooklyn or Queens and can make it to work via subway. Then you get to feel superior to your boss, who's too weak to brave the weather; and you get to (a) screw around a little and (b) actually get work done for once. All you have to do is make sure you're sober enough to not slur your words when your boss calls in to "see if there's anything I need to do."
• And if you're a freelancer, like me, you get to just sit on your ass and watch it fall.

Hyperdave's blog Datajunkie is always a good stop, but right now it's crammed to the nose hairs with exceptional stuff to look at: midcentury science fiction illustration from Wally Wood (above) and Virgil Finlay; exploitation paperback covers from the '70s; Bernie Wrightson comics; and more. Nice, Hyperdave!

“Only a psychopath can torture and be unaffected. You don’t want people like that in your organization. They are untrustworthy, and tend to have grotesque other problems.”
Whatever it takes: The politics of the man behind 24
So here's my question: What about the psychological stability of people who take their behavioral cues from a TV show in the first place?

You know WHAT?
If that scrawny-ass little celestial bitch wants to be a planet, let him bulk up a little. There he is all tiny and squeaky and shit, whining, “I’m a planet! I’m a planet!” And we’re supposed to feel all sorry for the little shorty ‘cause he used to be a planet and now he’s just some string of bullshit numbers or something. Say what?
You want to be a planet, homes? PUT ON SOME WEIGHT. You sitting there acting all entitled and shit, while decent, hard-working Americans put in the effort every day to pack on the pounds. Say what you will about us as a people, we ain’t shy when it comes to the Fritos. And you can’t even be bothered. You just wanna stay all skinny and little and STILL you wanna be a planet.
Fuck you, Pluto. You know what’s good for you, you’ll stay on the schoolyard with the asteroids and the moons and the little baby comets.
And Uranus: You’re next, motherfucker.
