New Meme Has All the Kids Talking -- Sean T. Collins launches the greatest meme in the history of memology, WHOSE RESPONSIBLE THIS.

Amusingly, the father of the meme shows up and objects strenuously, inspiring several other possible memes, including:

* "nobody checks spellling on the internet!!!!"

* "I am what they call the best of the best, so mock all you want, but I have my fans, and they lvoe my stories!!!!"


* "Oh, I could go on but you get the point I hope. Does anything you write get parise like this???"

Sean follows up with the first WHOSE RESPONSIBLE THIS LOL-cat type image, soon to be followed, no doubt, by a million more, all over the Interwebs. Here are my thoughtful contributions to the nascent dialog:

Create your own, spread the word, and remember: "ITS JUST A FANTASY AND WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE!"

20 Men I Admire -- A meme imported from Roger Green's blog...

In no particular order, but numbered so I can keep track:

1. Carl Sagan, for bringing knowledge to a world that embraces ignorance.

2. Charles Darwin, ditto.

3. Roger Green, for sharing his blogging tips with me and also being a great human being.

4. James Howard Kunstler, for calling it as he sees it, and usually getting it right.

5. James Kochalka, for living his dream.

6. Alan Moore, for calling bullshit on corporate servitude, and for bringing good writing to comics.

7. Ed Dague, for being a genuine journalist even after his retirement.

8. Hunter S. Thompson, for Truth, Justice, and Gonzo.

9. David Gilmour, for bringing poetry to his guitar.

10. Roger Waters, for creating Dark Side of the Moon with Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright.

11. My son, for being a far better human being than I could have ever taught him to be.

12. Rob Vollmar, for seeing comics more clearly than I ever can.

13. Chris Butcher, for speaking more clearly and intelligently about the comics industry than just about anybody.

14. Orson Welles, for insisting on the purity of his brilliant vision.

15. Michael Moore, for getting frustrated and actually doing something about it, again and again.

16. Jon Stewart, for being one of the last real newsmen in America, and being very funny as he does it.

17. Roger Ebert, for plainly explaining the sublime and wondrous for decades.

18. Barry Windsor-Smith, for sharing his incredible gifts with the world.

19. Steve Ditko, for being one of the greatest comic book artists ever, and for insisting on doing it his way no matter what.

20. Bernard Krigstein, for bringing intelligence to comic book art.

Sorry it's so comic-centric, but, you know, that's my life.

Time, Flowing Like A Meme -- Roger Green posted this to his blog, and here I am taking the meme out for a spin.

1. Ten years ago: In August 1995, my wife and I were anticipating the November birth of our son, Aaron, and I was working as News Director for a Glens Falls radio station.

2. Five years ago: In August 2000, I had been working for one year as morning news guy at an Albany radio station, and working to put together a website called Comic Book Galaxy.

3. One year ago: The worst eight months of my adult life began. Things are better now, thanks.

4. Yesterday: Worked, fixed dinner for my kids, retired to my bedroom to read an advance preview of one of the better graphic novels of this year.

5. Today: Work, doubtlessly will fix dinner for the kids, and hopefully watch last night's Daily Show and Too Late with Adam Carolla before bedtime.

6. Tomorrow: Mmm, survey says "work." It's also the day before payday, so you can be sure little to no money will be spent on much of anything.

7. Five snacks I enjoy: Popcorn, toast and jam, trail mix, animal crackers (the good ones, as Roger noted), english muffin.

8. Five bands I know the lyrics of most of their songs: Beatles, Pink Floyd, James Kochalka Superstar, Tool, Peter Gabriel.

9. Five things I would do with $100,000,000: Start a comics company; select creators would be given a yearly stipend and asked to create whatever they want to, with no editorial interference whatsoever. Hire a full-time chef/nutritionist. Let my wife choose a house for our family. Hire a driver and buy the most tank-like vehicle possible for them to drive me around in. Buy Marvel and DC Comics and return all rights to all characters to their original creators.

10. Five locations I'd like to run away to: Montreal, Toronto, Oregon, Washington State, Northampton, Mass.

11. Five Bad Habits: My "intuitive" financial planning. Avoiding the doctor. Not reading enough. Forgetting people can't read my mind. Caffeine addiction.

12. Five things I like doing: Reading. Writing. Spending time with friends. Exploring new places. Watching my children grow.

13. Five TV shows I like: Extras. The Sopranos. 24. Boston Legal. 30 Days.

14. Famous People I'd like to meet, living or dead. John Lennon, Howard Zinn, Howard Stern, Bernard Krigstein, Gary Groth.

15. Biggest joys at the moment: My kids. Good work on Comic Book Galaxy. Allergies under control after an apocolyptic early summer.

16. Favorite toys: DVD player. New computer with CD burner. USS Catastrophe Shop.

17. Five people to tag: Logan, Shane, Chris, Fred, Rob.
