This Week's Monkey-ish Midweek-ish Business

Because I often introduce myself by saying "I'm the Dandy Highwayman who you're too scared to mention", here's Adam Ant to explain how to do it properly. Because I'm long and pretentious, here's Guns N' Roses doing the same thing. Because I resisted putting the final scene of Flashdance up last week, I'm not resisting Kenny Loggin's Footloose[1].

And because Youtube is there: Rocket Man as done by William Shatner, and Rocket Man as done by William Shatner done by Stewie Griffin. Of course the best William Shatner site is here.

Long (a full issue) scan of the Warren Ellis / Darick Robertson comic Transmetropolitan; possibly the best, certainly the most meditative of the run; NOT safe for work; Another Cold Morning. (For those of you coming to it blind; Spider Jerusalem is a journalist, and this issue is essentially one of his pieces).

I continue to mine Wondermark for amusing and short cartoons, in this case about the curious intersection of insurance and giant dogs; and using up the internet resource that is Superdickery, a handful of panels that don't look as innocent as they probably did when they were published, mostly about Batman.

Something serious and interesting; satellite photos of the Greek Fires. You can see the smoke, and they've outlined the fires for you.

Now all I need is to find something monkey related and we're all done here. Just one monkey thing on the internet. Could be anything. Doesn't have to be interesting or funny. Just monkey related. So here's two things to make up for lack of quality and the fact you've almost certainly seen it before a hundred times on late night adverts-from-around-the-world TV shows.

It's a great shame that the link to the boner discussion at the bottom of the boner strips on superdickery no longer works, What could possibly be the reason for the excessive boners? Are all those boners legitimate and was there more boner-love going on back in those days..?

I suppose you could try googling "boner joker batman" or similar.

I'm not sure whether safesearch should be on or not, or whether you should search for things with or without images. I mean with images could be disasterous (have you seen comic book slashfic pictures?) but surely the best discussions will have the pictures for context?

My Google-fu is not strong enough for this.

Yikes! And I had intended to keep this blog knob joke free for the forseeable future, which is why I haven't blogged about what the guy at medieval mayhem said about the origin of the word "pistol", or about Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing.
