The Strip Returns! | 01:28 AM

As promised, a new episode of JVG: the comic strip debuts today!

Predictably, it seems to be a strip about doing a strip after not doing a strip for a while. Humorous! Predictable! Wanton!

former fan comments: "so???? were waitinggggg..... so much for the best damn strip we've ever seen..."

former fan comments: " suck."

JVG comments: "Well, I wouldn't want to make you drop the "former" from your alias, now, would I?"

former fan comments: "oh so your the funny man now. i see ur humor has gone down the wazoo. do me a favor dont lead us on if ur not gonna complete the job dude. dont say theres gonna be a new comic and then take a vacation to wherever. i stil lcheck this site but i may stop if things dont change a round here dude."

Lock comments: "This Former Fan dude kicks some major ass."

Rollback! | 04:05 PM

From the NY Review of Books: Behind the scenes at Wal*Mart

The money you save from the "rolled-back prices" comes out of your pocket on tax day: ""...a two-hundred employee Wal*Mart store costs federal taxpayers $420,000 a year... That translates into a total annual welfare bill of $2.5 billion for Wal*Mart's 1.2 million US employees."

Update: LS v. JVG Smackdown IX | 06:32 PM

Lockhart takes my mockery of his new design with rage and an unexpected bonus! a timely Regan gag.

Well, played, Steele. I think you have a future in the "comedy" business. Or, perhaps, a past.

LS lays down the gauntlet! | 06:10 PM

Lockhart redesigns, blames me. (Note: As of 5:55pm, 12/9, archive page has not yet received makeover. Check main page for new look.)

Among the innovations: news feed eliminated
Oppressive "headlines" for posts eliminated, reducing need for "cleverness" by a whopping 14%
Cutting edge c. 1995 "basic black" background

Mssr. Steele claims that one of the reasons to redesign was to spur me into action. Very well, then, Steele. Your challenge has been accepted! Former Fan, sharpen your angry pen the strip returns next week!* Catch up on back issues now!

* makes no guarantees, express or implied, as to whether the strip will continue beyond that time frame.

Pale Hawk Down | 09:50 AM

Seems to me that if the self-interested residents of 927 5th Avenue are willing to evict one longtime resident because they're worried about bird crap and dead pigeons, then they'll be willing to let that resident come back if it's proved that he and his mate aren't responsible for the bird crap and dead pigeons. If, for instance, the bird crap and dead pigeon kept appearing at 927 5th Avenue, despite Pale Male's eviction. Like, even inside people's apartments.

If you know what I mean.

Anyone visiting 927 any time soon?

Hazel comments: "I'd like to find someone who has access to an endless supply of bird shit (such as someone who works at a zoo, vet office, or pet store) that would be willing to collect the feces. If so, I'd be willing to mail it in sweet holiday boxes to all the 927 5th Avenue residents except for Mary Tyler Moore. Please let me know if you have some I can get. Thanks"
