Me: Bull, my dad just said he’s decided to give me all his records.

Bull: Duuuuude! That’s awesome.  Wait a minute… you’re dad’s not deathly sick and hiding it from you, is he?

Me: (Shock of realization) Holy shit.  Hang on.  Dad?

Dad: No, I’m not dying.  I just sold my turntable.  You’re not getting my comics until after I die. 

Me: Oh thank god.  Now, about how many records can I anticipate…

Toilet paper: you wipe your ass with it (except this guy, who may use circuit boards). Sometimes you even use it to clean up spills. And sometimes you use it as a napkin and then don’t understand when your stomach is upset later (SPOILER: YOU ATE DOODOO PARTICLES). Personally, I prefer unprinted TP because in 20 years scientists are gonna discover the dye they use to color it gives you butthole cancer, and I ain’t getting another pig-butt transplant. I may be an organ donor, but if I find out somebody turned my ass into stadium hotdogs after I died I am gonna be PISSED. Probably from hell.

Plop! Comic Roll Toilet Paper [walyou]

This is one if for my pops.  He described this as: “Moench took various pulp and modern icons like Sax Rohmer’s “Fu Manchu,” James Bond and Sherlock Holmes and built a new mythology.  Truly great story telling.”

1: My poppa bear is still a comic geek.

2: He has fantastic taste. 

A near-mint copy of a 1962 ‘Amazing Fantasy’ # 15 (which is no doubt the name of multiple pornos by now) was recently sold for $1.1 million by a private seller to a private buyer.

It’s not the highest price ever paid for a comic book, an honor that goes to “Action Comics” No. 1 with Superman on the cover, which went for $1.5 million.

But [ chief executive Stephen] Fishler says the price paid is the most for a book from the Silver Age, the mid-1950s to about 1970.

"The fact that a 1962 comic has sold for $1.1 million is a bit of a record-shattering event," he said. "That something that recent can sell for that much and be that valuable is awe-inspiring."

Usually, it has been comics from the Golden Age — typically from the late 1930s to the early 1950s — that draw seven-figure sums..”

Captivity of German Soldiers, 25 april 1945 by agan harahap on Flickr.

Following the unconditional surrender of the Wehrmacht which went into effect on 8 May 1945, some Wehrmacht units remained active, either independently (e.g. in Norway), or under Allied command as police forces.[7] By the end of August 1945, these units had been dissolved, and a year later on 20 August 1946, the Allied Control Council declared the Wehrmacht as officially abolished

This is actually quite fascinating.  Most comic nerds, and I am one, will spend a few moments looking for their favorites knowing full well they won’t learn anything knew.  This is the beauty of great design.

Why Superman could never join Facebook.

For everyone’s favorite spandex-clad Jesus metaphor, social networking would be a virtual minefield. He’d have an inbox jam-packed with distress messages from whiny bank tellers and earthquake victims, inappropriate pokes from a drunk Jimmy Olsen, embarrassing Scrabble losses to Krypto the Superdog, and constant grief from Lois about updating their relationship status. With all that going on, you couldn’t blame him for forgetting to remind his mom not to jeopardize the lives of everyone he’s ever met by publicly exposing his biggest secret.

Answering the age-old question, “What’s on Superman’s iPod?”

Graphic artist Sean Hartter has taken the Web trend of re-designing movie posters a few steps further by creating a huge series of posters for geek-based films starring some of history’s greatest film stars, all in an authentic period style. Among Hartter’s inspired designs are The Punisher starring Jack Palance; Daredevil starring William Shatner; The Maxx starring Sylvester Stallone; Batman: The Joker’s Five-Way Revenge with John Barrymore and Lon Chaney; and Watchmen with Peter Fonda, Brigitte Bardot, Max von Sydow, Paul Newman, Lenny Bruce and Anthony Perkins (directed by John Frankenheimer!). Surely, Grant Morrison and time travel phoographer Steven Cook would be proud.
