http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/

If you haven't visited "Hyperbole and a Half" you are really missing out on some fun.  It is part blog, part web comic.  In any case it is a riot.  The art is (intentionally) primitive, but very expressive in spite of (or because of) that.  Her latest post, "Wolves," reminded me of EQ a little (and all you EQ fans who do role playing), so I thought I'd share here - though I certainly hope you all didn't have the twisted childhood Allie seems to have had!  Check out her "Best Of" selections, too, and don't say I didn't warn you about snorting your drink out of your nose!

Feel free to post links to other blogs you like reading.

I have sooooo much love for that blog.

I can't think of anything half as awesome as Allie's blog, but one other I do visit fairly frequently is:

http://www.pajiba.com

It's a movie/tv review site with a good sense of humor. They actually did a piece when the ElfQuest movie was announced, calling it "Alien Elf Porn". *roll eyes*

Hyperbole and a Half makes me laugh like a fiend.  Very few things make me laugh out loud (an amused snort doesn't mean I don't find something amusing, it's just my usual reaction).  That blog quite often has me laughing so hard that tears are running down my face (and that's not hyperbole  ;) ).

The "Wolves" entry is awesome, but the ones that really put me on the floor were "The Year Kenny Loggins Ruined Christmas" and the one about her dogs and moving.

I'll have to check my links at home for which blogs I frequent.

Hyperbole and a Half has some pretty fun posts (the one with the cake!) but the las one is just terrifying! Poor Benny O___o

I'm not that familiar with the Blogosphere, so I don't really follow any. I have checked out Hyperbole and a Half in the past though..

Well, this isn't exactly a blog, but the LA Times ran a brilliant article by Berkeley Breathed on Sunday.  Here is the online version:

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/movies/la-ca-mars-moms-20110306,0,2619237.story

I hope the Pinis read this.  This is from someone who knows first hand what Hollywood does when it takes a wonderful, intimate, artistic creation and tries to make a blockbuster out of it.  What he experienced is what we should expect from an EQ movie if it ever gets made.  Plus this article is worth reading just because he is such a dang funny writer.
