Thus revealed, the creature buried its nose in the tire-tilled soil...

Oh it's true, it's true -- Scary-Crayon is finally open. Or you could just click here to skip the splash and go straight to the main. Enjoy!!! And if you do (enjoy, that is), send an e-mail and let me know. 🙂

In other news, this week's TMNT episode managed to be even more stupid than last week's. It was going pretty well at first -- granted, it was still stuck in stupid from last week's plot device, but whatever -- and then they dropped the bomb. Well, technically the bomb won't be dropped until next week, but I did some reading on forums where the cartoon is being discussed, and this week's episode all but confirmed some of the speculations made in the threads. Ready? You remember how I mentioned the Utroms -- the alien species to which Krang belongs -- being immortal, or something like it? And remember how Shredder is also immortal? My guess was that Shredder was some kind of demon (owing to the fact that he fights with the Sword of Tengu, aka "the goblin sword", and that he had some demon things protecting the top floor of his tower), but alas, I was wrong. That would've been better than the reality that, in the new TMNT cartoon, Krang is Shredder. Yep.

And once again "Static Shock" proves that it is by far the worst superhero cartoon I have ever had the displeasure of watching. I kinda wish some of the episodes were out on dvd; I'd love to do a Scary-Crayon article on the show. So awful.

Oh, and I watched "Boston Public" last night. That was pretty awful too, but it was better than I expected. My mother asked if I wanted to watch it, saying that the episode was "supposed to be really good." I answered back that Boston Public is never good. But then I figured I'd watch it just so I could say with absolute certainty that that particular episode was no exception. And it wasn't. But I will say that I didn't expect it to actually present two conflicting sides of an argument (though, of course, neither argument really came out on top). But what it didn't do is say anything new, or at least anything more insightful than the run-of-the-mill arguments on the subject. This is is to be expected, of course, but still, I don't get it. All of the premises were there to make a really special argument like that -- they're always there -- but of course the writers would never go that far. And maybe they can't be faulted, since most people don't go that far either, yet they, too, have access to all of the relevant information. Just requires taking a couple more steps up the thought-process ladder.

Okay, going to give "Firefly" a try now.

SCARY-CRAYON!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
