Why do we call it news? Is anything I say really "new"? Is there anything "new" under the sun? Can I stop asking questions?


Welcome to another fabulous Wednesday installment of CXM. As a reminder, there are no strips today, but we do have some interesting columns for your perusal today. Jason delves into the evils imposed on the children of the 80s by the devious minds of Nintendo and Saturday morning cartoons and I wonder out loud about the possibility of adding a soundtrack to my life.

Big news for the site: our About Us page is finally active. Kai should have the button above working sometime soon (if it's not up when you read this), but until then, you can access it by clicking on the link above. You'll learn all about the inception of CXM and the lives of its creators (for those of you who don't actually know us).

Kai refused to let me link to his "farkin' awesome Marketing Plan." I would go ahead and find a link anyway, but you know what? Even he says it's boring, so why bother (don't worry Kai, you still da man in our readers' lives).

Jason's Robots and Spacemen makes its triumphant return today, with a spiffy new domain name (and goddamn it, I'm still typing it as "Robots and Spacement") and brand new comics. 'You will find R+S...or it will find you.'

And I just thought I'd let you all know that I stood up for you yesterday. Someone in my English seminar had the audacity to call America "inhumane." Another person intimated that America was no good, because it basically was where Britain shipped off all the convicts. Yet a third insisted that we were also a haven for unorthodox spiritual groups. As one of two Americans in the class, I felt the need to 'represent.' "Religious fanatics and criminals? Yep, that's us." Well put, I thought.

I'll keep today's newspost brief. Mainly because not a lot has been grabbing my attention as of late, and of that which did, I didn't find anything compelling enough to pass on to you. But, in the hopes of spawning some form conversation in the forums I'm just gonna put myself out on a limb here and say:

live action Transformer movie!

(and sadly, it does appear to be just a hoax)

Dan is more than meets the eye.

Quote of the Day: "The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again. Oh people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come."
