The President holds no real power. His sole purpose is to take attention away from where the power truly exists… – Douglas Adams
Is anyone else watching the new Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency on BBC America (not sure if it’s showing in the UK)? I’ve made a discovery about myself *cough*, a new discovery about myself – I am not a frothing at the mouth purist, who cries out in anguish, and then feverishly reaches for his electronic device to express his outrage on…[Read more]
Interesting, the Stephen Mangan one done by the BBC (UK) was very good. Interesting that they have made a US version. It will be interesting to compare when (IF) we get it over here.
Biggest difference, just off the cuff – the BBC America version, while still retaining the humorous aspects, is somewhat more intense. I chalk that up to AMCs involvement.
It just so happens IDW Comics has just released their version in a 2 issue volume called Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: The Salmon of Doubt. If searching for it at the local comic shop is too much effort, it is available online as well. https://readcomiconline.to/Comic/Dirk-Gently-s-Holistic-Detective-Agency-The-Salmon-of-Doubt

A Stranger Things/Peanuts Christmas mashup
J. R. R. Tolkien vs George R. R. Martin Epic Rap Battle . . . very amusing . . . NSFW
Walking Dead – for six long years, I’ve accepted your manipulation and abuse of my feelings for you, because I’d already put so much effort into the relationship and I thought eventually the roller coaster of emotions would pay off in upbeat story arcs. Well I’ve had enough of your false promises, WD. We’re through. Call me crazy but I like the…[Read more]
Just found out Italian actor Carlo Pedersoli, AKA Bud Spencer, passed away this past summer. Sad news. Among his many accomplishments, as a kid I was particularly impressed by his spaghetti westerns he starred in together with Terrence Hill . . .
@ezra-yesterday, you okay down there?
Yeah, my tree house didn’t have any more leaks than normal…
I’m just glad the press guy got a picture of me on my way to church, I would hate to have been posted on the internet with messy hair and in my dress down attire.
Seriously though, we are on the opposite end of the state up in the mountains. We hardly got any rain from the storm, much less any dangerous conditions.
Oh that’s right, the whole hillbilly thing. Got it.
Steampunk? What’s this steampunk of which you speak?
If you travel there Forlath, you need to be aware of the other policies that are advertised on the same page https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jul/25/no-more-rats-new-zealand-to-exterminate-all-introduced-predators
One question Professor, where did they get all these ‘introduced’ vermin from in the first place? Please answer into the microphone, if you would . . .
1. I posted this with my iPhone, which is why the pic is so small. I’ll try and fix it later.
2.This was sent to me in a text… I’m not out on the internet reading other web comics, that would be disloyal.
1. Very dark . . . and amusing, but dark.
2. Don’t be ridiculous, reading other webcomics isn’t disloyal! Only posting them is . . .
I have a horrible feeling this applies to snails as well. Is the snail in the shell, or is the shell all snail. Deep..
Red Dwarf new series Trailer, in UK 22 Sept.
After roughly a two year hiatus from gaming (due in no small part to my *cough* addictive personality), last week I received a copy of the new ‘No Man’s Sky’ game . . . I may be some time . . .
Loving this show! Watched episode five of Stranger Things last night, from the acting of the young cast to the 80s references, not to mention the suspense, this show is excellent. Warning, a couple of slight spoilers about half way down the linked interview . . .
Finished it last night, watched three episodes back to back. Screw zombies – this is my new favorite show. Trailer . . .
Fan of the show? This is fun . . .
I am currently binge watching this, thanks for the heads up.
Finished it just now, very well done; I love the 80’s nostalgia and also the fact that if you look away when the police chief is talking you can easily believe Harrison Ford is in the cast.
Looking forward to season two.
I see your family (or clones) feature a strong resemblance. I have deep sympathy for them all and hope the modern advances in plastic surgery can assist in the near future. I’m afraid for you Forlath the possibility of a normal appearance is hopeless.
Exactly how disfigured are those poor souls that they would purposefully chose your face as a replacement?
… Ummm, no offense…
No offense taken. I’m too estactic, at current production rates, there should be Forlaths as far as the eye can see, by the end of the month . . .
Good news is I was briefly named the new Turkish Foreign Minister, bad news is I face a firing squad in the morning . . . too soon?
Wait… So you are really in Turkey? I thought you were joking.
What, was the third circle of hell all booked up?
Well, I guess it could be worse, you could be in Nottingham.
Hey, that was under the belt. Our government can arrange a coup, including deposing many of their own positions AND do it democratically. (for limited values of democracy admittedly )
What kind of lunatic jokes about finding themselves in the midst of a military coup . . . Oh, right, I see your point. No, not joking.
Okay, admittedly not the best time to go on holiday to Turkey. I wandered about the hotel grounds and over to reception early this morning, and spoke with a couple of the employees. The local consensus appears to be it was a coup attempt by a very small group within the army with ties to the ‘Pennsylvanian Cleric’, easily dealt with and all but…[Read more]
