Ken Ham, the young-Earth creationist minister who had his ass gently-but-firmly handed to him in a debate with Bill Nye earlier this year, has had it with “the desperate and fruitless search for extraterrestrial life.” Aliens can’t be real, because the Bible says Earth is special. And if they are real, they’re all going to hell.
Love the logic that says aliens inherited Adam’s sin, but not his redemption, because they’re not his descendents.
Ken, pick any goofy credo you want, but at least keep your internal story structure consistent.
The scariest television I ever watched wasn’t a horror movie. Horror movies tend to be technical exercises, evaluating the special effects like a gymnastics judge in the Gorelympics. “4.5 points from the Cenobite judge in the 100 meters catch fire and run screaming before decapitation; good…
Jack White played Dick Dale’s “Misirlou” at a show in Louisville this weekend. That’s the song that plays over the opening credits of ‘Pulp Fiction’ if the name isn’t familiar. It’s good times. You should watch it. Click here to skip directly to the ‘Pulp Fiction’ song.
Fun fact: Misirlou is at least 90 years old! You might not recognize it a lot of the time, since Dick Dale really put his Deltonian spin on it, but dig it. It’s even (debatably) the theme from HBO’s ROME:
i dont want to come off rude or anything but you should probably stop speaking spanish unless youre of hispanic heritage otherwise its cultural appropriation, and i dont think youre of hispanic heritage because you look white from any of the pictures youve posted to please stop speaking/learning spanish thank you vuv
I’m back at Cracked! This week’s article is about people who either lacked talent but succeeded BECAUSE of it, (not despite, which would describe most of the Billboard 100 who are just ciphers for the music industry execs to make the records they want to make) although in editing the title got changed to 5 Star Performers Who Never Let a Lack of Talent Stop Them. If you want to kvetch about Tiny…
I was on vacation last week, so here’s a double header for you: artist interviews with my old chum Nicola Scott and Mike McKone, whom I hadn’t met, before, but have been a fan of since his very first pencilling job on my beloved Justice League.
How do you get your writing (comics or non-comics) done during convention season?
Great question. The answer is pretty simple, and I don’t mean it in a snippy way: you make the time. My day job is pretty demanding and it sometimes involves travel (and cons - which knock out prime writing time/weekends), so I try my best to carve out chunks of time to write. Different kinds of writing demand different amounts of time. For a novel, I need to be doing it every day for a number of reasons - momentum, mainly and the need to have A LOT of writing done in a relatively short amount of time. Plus, it’s just easier to keep everything straight if you’re rolling along, as opposed to writing a few chapters here and there. Comic scripts - depending on what I’m writing about and the prep/planning/plotting involved beforehand - can be knocked out in a few weeks. If I’m on an extremely tight deadline, a week. I like to give myself a day to just sit with something and revise. These are all ideal circumstances - which means they rarely happen. But yeah, the key to get writing done for me during con season involves writing before or after cons. I have never been able to bring writing work with me to a show and get much done beyond edits - which usually happen on the plane. Hope this helped!
After a very long time away, I’m happy to announce that my Hate By Numbers video series might be returning. It’s been a long road for Hate By Numbers and the show might not be known to all of you. Some of you know me from my novel, some from Twitter, and some only as a Cracked columnist. I’ll…
