    TOO BAD if you’re a writer wanting to mark your place in comic book history, because “Disco-Dancing Clark Kent” has already been done.


    SUPERMAN FAMILY #196. July-August 1979. “Super-Disco Fever!” Written by Cary Burkett, Penciled by Kurt Schaffenberger, Inked by Dan Adkins.

    Clark Kent is taken to a discotheque by his fan club and discovers that a madman has hidden several bombs beneath the dance floor.

    He slyly uses his super-powers to disarm each one, using only the raw propulsive musk-scented power of … his moves.

    (“Shake your bootie?”)

    More pro-Superman evidence surfaces.

  3. "Why do these cops need MARPAT camo pants again," I asked on Twitter this morning. One of the most interesting responses came from a follower who says he served in the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division: "We rolled lighter than that in an actual warzone."

    Somehow that really says it all doesn’t it—if you think about what camouflage is actually designed to do and how it’s being used here as a tool of intimidation—though all the other details about Ferguson police equipment in that article are extremely disturbing as are the photos.

  4. "Round Table Talk" — Lady G & Papa San

    This song + video has better dramatic turns than a hundred seasons of our current golden age of television.

    FKA Twigs is still winning at the music video game. Likely the album game too if this single is any indication.

    LP1 is out August 12 on Young Turks.

    this song is pretty stunning, especially since the last FKA Twigs song I heard was a wispy nothing. video probably nsfw

    “Dear Dreiser, I’m having Fort’s Book of the Damned sent back to you. Fort seems to be one of the most damnable bores who ever cut scraps from out of the way newspapers. I thought they were facts. And he writes like a drunkard. Lo! has been sent to me but has gone into my wastepaper basket. And what do you mean by forcing “orthodox science” to do this or that? Science is a continuing exploration and how in the devil can it have an orthodoxy? The next you’ll be writing is the “dogmas of science” like some blasted Roman Catholic priest on the defensive. When you tell a Christian you don’t believe some yarn he can’t prove, he always call you “dogmatic”. Scientific workers are first rate stuff and very ill paid and it isn’t for the likes of you and me to heave Forts at them. God dissolve (and forgive) your Fortean Society. Yours, H.G. Wells”

    As you can probably tell from the name of my blog, I have a soft spot for old pseudoscience and occult stuff, but this made me laugh.
