Jake pontificates/mumbles about:

- Comic Con and “entertainment journalism”
- Gates-gate and the police
- Obama’s “health” “care” “reform”

I also play one Beastie Boys song as a shout out/get well to Adam “MCA” Yauch, who was recently diagnosed with throat cancer (although we’re told he should be fine after some treatment). Special subtle thanks to Levar Burton.

  1. I must say I’m excited you’re back; I’ve always enjoyed LMB and understand that real life tends to get in the way (especially if you’re in library school; I’m an MLS man myself). I co-run a video game site that I guess falls under the banner of fansite in that we like games and don’t get paid for what we do (though in the interest of honesty, we do get review copies of some games). I thought about your points about Comic-con and wrote an editorial about it on our site, which is really just an excuse to hear myself talk. I put it as my url up there rather than linking to it here, lest this be flagged as spam.

    One thing I’d also like to bring up that didn’t really fit in at Gaming Shenanigans: some sites do exist to do nothing else than talk endlessly about (esoteric object x). A GI Joe site, for instance, would probably be going batshit about the movie that I guess is coming out soon? They’re pretty much just doing the film studio’s job for them, yes. But is there something wrong with dudes who are totally into GI Joe having a place to get excited over it? If you’re not a fan then you probably don’t go to the site, so the ‘advertising’ probably isn’t reaching you, and it’s not like they were ever on the fence about seeing the movie anyway.
