Sketch of the Day:  Lanterns and Supes and Bats, oh my!

So, I'm sitting at the computer waiting for some files to download and the service tech to come back to the phone.  There's people dropping by asking me to fix things for them and because I'm not talking on the phone in my ear they just assume I'm not really on it. Wish I was joking. Here's today's quick sketches. In brightest day, in blackest night, Geoff Johns will not escape my sight "I am the Mannydamm Batman! Wait, what? I drew him with real legs and not ...

Friday LinkFrogging - 7/23/10

Well kids, if its late July the geeks are convening in sunny Southern California.

That's right, its Comic-Con weekend in San Diego.  And while we at the 'Geek were able to secure press credentials for the mecca of all geekdom, due to timing issues we were unable to get there.

That doesn't mean we haven't enjoyed reading the press releases and marvelling at the missed opportunities (an interview with Pauly Shore?  Christopher Daniels?  Elvira?).

Discussions have been had.  Plans have been tentativised.  Next year kids.  Next year, we at the 'Geek will bring it to you first hand.

Until then we'll just have to do our part with this week's cheesecake.

Say hello to Lynda Carter, better known to a certain generation of American males as Wonder Woman.

Spinning her way into our homes and our collective consciousness in 1975, Ms. Carter came to epitomize the DC Comics Amazonian princess for decades.  Why, I still remember a summer vacation at my grandmother's house during which I read the local paper and it mentioned that Ms. Carter and Farrah Fawcett would appear on a new show called Battle of the Network Stars and they would both be wearing swimsuits.  I asked my dad if we could watch it that night.  He didn't hesitate to say yes.

Gread guy my dad.

Remind me to tell you the Risky Business story sometime.

But I digress.

Despite a recent costume change in the comics, Ms. Carter's iconic portrayal of Wonder Woman makes her our choice for cheesecake this week as we sit at our desks lamenting what might have been.

Next year.

Next year.

Friday LinkFrogging - 7/9/10

Just enough.  

I hope Lebron James enjoys Miami. 

I hope Miami enjoys Lebron James. 

But the gratuitous blowjob the national sports media has given and continues to give this story is beyond ridiculous.  I'm looking at you ESPN.  

Professional sports aren't about loyalty anymore.  Let's just forget about that.  They are about money, plain and simple.  Lebron made his.  Good for him.  

And speaking of things I've had enough of...Lindsey Lohan.  

Lindsey, shut the fuck up and do your time like a good little has been.  

I don't want to see your "civil disobedience" etched on your fingernails.  I don't want to hear you tweeted that your sentence is a violation of your eighth amendment rights.  

Most of all, I don't want to see your Svengali father on TV talking about how the system failed you.  Sorry dad, the ones who failed Blowhan are you and her mother.  You were too busy using your child to print cash and you forgot to raise her with basic sense and morals.  It's on you dude.  

So for the second week in a row, I had a reason to use Lindsey Lohan for our cheesecake and I passed.  I refused.  I didn't do it.  I won't put her drug addled face on the left side of this piece, not even for the possibility of some cheap traffic.

Why?

Because she doesn't deserve it.

Instead, say hello to Jane Lynch. 

I can hear you all saying "What?"

Seriously.  I can.

I don't care.

You know why?    I'll tell you why.

Ms. Lynch is one of the most versatile actresses working on Hollywood these days.  From her early work as part of Christopher Guest's improv ensemble, to her turn as the boss in The 40 Year Old Virgin, to her recurring role as Charlie Sheen's psychiatrist onTwo and a Half Men, she always delivers.

That's more than you can say about most of the actresses in Hollywood, Lohan included.

Earlier in the week, Ms. Lynch was nominated for an Emmy for her work on Glee.  She plays Sue Sylvester the cheerleading coach and arch-nemesis of the Glee-ful kids.  I think with a little more Sue Sylvester style tough love and a little less recreational sluttery maybe Lindsey wouldn't be headed for the big house.

I'm just saying.

On to the links!

As seen on Cartoon Network Plastic Man: Are you seeing what I’m seeing? Because I’m seeing gorillas riding pterodactyls, with harpoon guns, stealing a boat. Batman: It’s Gorilla Grodd. Plastic Man: It’s messed up is what it is. One of the really great perks of having twin boys is that I have a built in reason to watch shows like this. Oh sure, I’d be watching it anyway, but I can justify the space on the old DVR for the boys. That being said, Batman: The ...
