Free Form Comments

Say whatever you want to in the comments to this post -- random, off topic thoughts, ideas, suggestions, questions, recommendations, criticisms (which can be anonymous), surveys, introductions if you have never commented before, personal news, self-promotion, requests to be added to the blog roll and so on. If I forget, remind me. Remember these comments can be directed at all the readers, not just me.

ALSO. You can use this space to re-ask me questions you asked me before that I failed to answer because I was too busy.

AND you can use this space to comment on posts that are old enough that no one is reading the comments threads anymore.

You do not have to have a blogger account or gmail account to post a comment -- you can write a comment, write your name at the bottom of your comment like an e mail, and then post using the "anonymous" option.

WRITING FOR THIS BLOG. If I see a big free form comment that deserves more attention, I will pull it and make it its own post, with a label on the post and on the sidebar that will always link to all the posts you write for this blog. I am always looking for reviews of games, tv, movies, music, books and iPhone apps.

my art work has taken an odd turn. i am now mainly working with smurfs. either creating multi-level stencils from smurf images, or wheatpasting ink-jet prints of smurfs, mushroom houses, etc... on to board.

I have no idea where I'm going with this. do you?

Prompted by a question from my office mate who is conferencing students on a Watchmen paper this week:

Famous stories (novels, stories, TV shows, comics) where the bad guy wins in the end

Some of the ones we came up with were Empire Strikes Back (of course), Seven, The Usual Suspects, No Country for Old Men...

others?

Seinfeld

Hmmm... I always thought that the point to Seinfeld was that they were all really bad people and that, in the end, evil was finally punished... unless you subscribe the the parrallel to the Stranger interpretation of the ending.

they go to jail in seinfeld, however, the closing shot is of them in jail starting up the "shirt button" conversation which was from the very first episode. In my opinion this is to suggest that while they were punished, they aren't going to change and the cycle will begin again. therefore, they win. sort of. or if not win, not learn any lesson or be reformed.
