Fun with HTML5 and comics

Microsoft released this great demo site that shows off what you can do with HTML5. If you have a very modern browser (I got it to work in Safari 5.0.3 and Chrome 8 on a Mac, though without the background soundtrack; it's built for Internet Explorer 9 [which is still in beta]; neither Firefox 3.6 or Opera 11 seemed to work entirely), it's a pretty interesting look at where web comics might go once all browsers are up to speed.

Alice Cooper makes the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Yes, it's extremely odd that he wasn't in there years ago. He should have been a founding member, almost. But finally, after all the lobbying we've done (and not lobbying in that sleazy Washington DC way, but more like thousands of fans going "WTF" every time the nominees were announced), Alice Cooper has made it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Hear him say thanks here.

Is a Digital Comic Really Yours to Own?

This is something I've posted about in various places -- I'm glad to see it getting some notice in the online comics press.

Living in the coal region...

Bruce Springsteen had a classic line in Thunder Road:
"It's a town full of losers
and I'm pulling out of here to win"

(the "and" is from the piano version on the live box set, for all of you nitpickers).

Anyway, growing up in Schuylkill County, I always thought that was a great line. It was only later when I realized what the region had to offer. I'm glad I found my way back (well, most of the time; there's still the modern-day coal barons to deal with, who peddle everything from culm and wind energy to prisons and river sludge to a populace grown too cynical to care, but that's another day's battle). There's a great article about what the area has to offer here, and something I needed to read today.

Half-naked run through Shops at Prudential Center (Boston)

For some odd reason, a throng of half-naked college kids (I presume this was some type of fraternity thing, or perhaps spring fever) ran through the Shops at Prudential Center in Boston this past Friday. At least this one wore a cape:

The Indymac Slap in our Face

The Indymac Slap in our Face, or your tax dollars at work. Like a reverse Robin Hood, our government continues to take from the poor and give to the rich.

Leaked ACTA documents

Leaked documents concerning the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement are available here. Some believe that the eventual adoption of these agreements could create "back-door" laws, imposing rules on citizens that were not written by their government. Link via boingboing.
