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.
