The practical upshot was that I just sat and read comics. There was an interesting contrast between Judd Winick's 'Barry Ween: Boy Genius' (like 'Calvin & Hobbes', but with swearing. And without Hobbes. And Calvin really is a genius inventor. Sort of.) and Garth Ennis's 'Max Fury' (Garth Ennis's usual hard bitten Real MenTM fighting malarkey). Both were the end of a story arc, both involved death, both ended with the titular hero weeping, but 'Barry Ween' was vastly more moving and engaging, whilst still being funny. And it didn't involved anyone being strangled with their own intestines, which was a plus.
Current Site: What if Cartoons Got Saved? Warning: listen with headphones. This basically content-free crazy Christian site has the usual clouds background and rotating cross gifs, but features a quite astonishing song, like the evil twin of Jeff Buckley's 'Hallelujah'. Must be heard to be believed.
