Last Minute Gifts

 John Atkinson's Wrong Hands finishes the year with this guide to last minute gifts.

It could almost work if you combines the slow cooker the origami ball and enough blenders :)

Express Queue Panda

Another from Mr Lovenstein is my pick for this week. I know we shouldn't but it's really hard not to agree with the Panda :)

Alphabet of the obsolete

John Atkinson's Wrong Hands published this little memoir of past technologies from the 20th century.

 As I lived through the last 40 years of the 20th century most of these were familiar to me.

A Zillion Dollar Comic

In late 2013 and early 2014 this single frame joke comic registered with me a lot. In November December 2013 ended up saving 8 of them, with a few more in early 2014.

Winning the game

J. L. Westover's Mr Lovenstein made its first appearance in my saved collection this week with this sporting entry.

Every competitor knows this but the press are too dumb to understand what constitutes winning at sport so they insist on asking the dumb questions.

Last kiss for Ant-man

Moving along into November 2013 it's obvious that I discovered John Lustig's "Last Kiss"  around this time.  I saved several of these strips, in their "Go Comics" incarnation. Moving over to his own site much later. Also of note were Chaos Life and The System.

And So It Began

 In the beginning Google shut down Google reader. I was used to getting my news, blogs and web comics via reader so I found myself a replacement. I chose Feed-on-feeds and created a test installation. Around 2 years later I am still using that original install.

At some point in the process I started saving cartoons (web comics) that I found especially poignant or otherwise good.
