Ducks are horrifying nightmare creatures.
Category: Linkage … Miscellany

Well, today I learned that ducks are -- or are prone to becoming -- cannibals. This passage (from the NSW Department of Primary Industries Agriculture website) is particularly chilling:

"Although cannibalism can begin in ducks of any age, ducklings over 4 weeks old are more prone to develop this vice. The underlying reasons for birds turning to cannibalism are not known, but it is associated with boredom..."

Duck cannibalism is associated with BOREDOM, people. Somebody get those ducks some knitting needles STAT.1

Check out this blog entry on Real Clear Science for a firsthand account of duck cannibalism, and here's the horrific "Scientifically Accurate DuckTales" video that sent me down this corkscrew-shaped road to nightmares in the first place.2

  1. That said, ducks are also apparently rapists and necrophiliacs. So riddle me this: how do they ever get bored?!? 
  2. Though I already knew about the corkscrew penises and labyrinthine vaginas. *shudder*

Joe Eszterhas is ridiculous.
Category: Current Events … Linkage

So I raaaarely comment on stuff like this (and I'm totally late on this in terms of blogosphere Hollywood gossip), but after having the tab open for days I've finally finished reading Joe Eszterhas's nine-page letter to Mel Gibson.

IT IS INSANE. And also kinda full of shit. I mean, Mel probably did do a lot of that stuff -- while he denies the truth of "the great majority of the facts as well as the statements and actions attributed to [him]" in his response to Eszterhas, those actions would be in keeping with Mel's personality as demonstrated in the past. But it just seems like bullshit that Eszterhas wrote this as a private communication to Mel with no intention of having it read by outside sources. (more...)

People like dogs better than Rihanna.
Category: Current Events … Linkage … Miscellany

It's recently occurred to me that, while I often feel like I'm not doing enough writing, I actually do quite a lot of it! I spend a lot of time browsing and posting at length on various forums, and I frequently leave not insubstantial comments on web articles and blog posts that I read... to say nothing of all of the stuff that I throw out on Facebook and the like. Having realized this, I'm going to stop posting to these places so much and instead post what I would have written here and on Scary-Crayon -- which will hopefully let me keep better track of my writing while adding to the content on my own sites.

To that end, I'm going to kick off by reposting some of the stuff I added to a Facebook discussion last week, since I thought it was pretty hilarious. (more...)

Wes on the web!
Category: Linkage … SC Updates

Quick linkage post!

First, Scary-Crayon has updated! I don't usually post these here, but it's been so bloody long since the last SC update I figured I should. Also, in one of the two comics posted today (the other features the Doctor), I appear alongside Bacardi! Hilarity ensues, or as much hilarity as can ensue from a subdued exchange that follows a standard framework and generally stays pretty far from cloud cuckoo lander territory.

Next, my pal Kevin over at Interrobang Studios drew me into an I'm My Own Mascot strip. IN COLOR! Very appreciative of that, yes. 🙂

See, quick post -- I actually meant it this time. Ja!
