Scary-Crayon updated! and defective Dawn.
Category: SC Updates

It's finally up -- the Scary-Crayon review of The Madballs History of the World. I love those balls more than you know. 🙂

And I took the second defective Dawn of the Dead dvd back today to exchange it for another, but this time I thought to ask if I could test it out in the store first. Well, we went through three more defective copies before the employee got really annoyed with me and pretty much told me to either accept store credit or take a defective dvd. Obviously I chose the former, but I wasn't too happy with that either -- fooling with stupid Dawn has wasted way too much of my time. I submitted a complaint/explanation via a form on the Anchor Bay website, so we'll see what happens with that. I'm upset. And you know what? I blame Dawn, since her name's in the title. Just kidding, Dawn. ;P

I did find $10 while walking back to Best Buy, though, so it wasn't a total bust. I think I deserve it.

YEP! This time, we've got A Crayon Haiku #7 and A Random Lunch #1. That's that, then.

And if you haven't taken a moment to check out "Wes in the Crystal City Labyrinth" yet, scroll down (or click on the post title) to do so. Ja!

Scary-Crayon updated!
Category: SC Updates

Just a quick note to say yes, Scary-Crayon updated. I've had this one laying around, but I thought it was time for it to go live -- so this time we've got for you the first ever Scary-Crayon video game review: "The Wizard of Oz" for the SNES. It's pretty awful. The game, that is. Hopefully the review itself isn't so bad.

The latest Oprah magazine is also dreadful (from the looks of the cover; I'm too afraid to open the thing), so despite my NOT WANTING TO GO ANYWHERE NEAR IT I'm still very tempted to scan the cover and go for another review...ugh. We'll see.

And a couple of the recent SC articles have been among my favorites to ever grace the site, so if you missed out on Where's April??? and the McDonald's Cup Review, be sure to give them a read.

New SC content on Sunday or Monday, but I'll probably have more to say in the blog tonight. And new links! Ja for now. 🙂

Finally (!!!), the April article is up, in two parts. Part 1 is pretty much the blog essay that appeared here over a month ago, with a few added photographs from my toy collection and video games (and a couple of photos of Wes in Disneyworld, '91); part 2 is an all-new toy comic detailing the quest to get her back. Give 'em a look and let me know what you think. (more...)

Scary-Crayon updated! And a word about cops.
Category: SC Updates … Serious

New Scary-Crayon article: A McDonald's Cup Review. Not a fancy plastic promo cup either -- just your regular run-of-the-mill wax paper cup you get with any ol' McDonald's beverage purchase. Enjoy!

New blog link added: Mac Swift's Vessel of Honour. And both Mac and Dawn offer up posts about Jewishness -- Dawn, in "Who's a Jew?", discusses what it means to be a Jew (with reference to the latter part of my recent post "Feelin' Fine"), and Mac in "Love that Jew!" So if you're interested, give those a read. I still think that Joey -- who only began playing up his supposed "Jewishness" in the last year or so, from what I've seen anyway -- is full of crap, but in all honesty I thought that anyway. This is a guy who took a train to Canada back in 1999 to pick up a prostitute (since he wants to be a politician and therefore didn't want to break any American laws -- how Clintonesque) so that he could say he "fucked in two millennia" and this past Christmas loudly sang, "Ann Coulter is a racist bitch!" upon sighting the woman in the flesh on Christmas Day, for crying out loud. Why is it that I'm acquainted with so many awful people? I dunno. (more...)
