Is there software you can set up that goes into specified folders and bookmarks and replaces the contents with images of rainbows and links to kittens if you don’t enter a password every week in case you die alone or unloved and someone discovers your computer?

Asking for a friend.

Surprised this t-shirt squeaked through the censors.

Eh, no, not really. Creators are typically way, way, way smarter than the people assigned to manage them.

Dear American Counter-Terror Organizations,

May I make a suggestion for a much-needed addition to the secret Drone Strike kill list?

Those landscapers that drive by the house every two days and throw into the garden a flyer advertising their lawn service in a plastic bag weighted down with rocks for easy tossing.

Sometimes Dell’s habit of licensing any movie or television property made very little sense, such as their use of popular actor James Arness in this comic book continuation of the movie, The Thing From Another World. The interior story is baffling and has many parallels to the Cowboys In Space trope that is despised by most discerning creators and readers. Nothing new or fresh is presented and Wild West themes are simply dressed up with “futuristic” themes and props.

Ridiculously, in one panel the Alien Sheriff tells his posse they must head the bank robbers off at “the horse head nebula”  and to “strap on your six-blasters”. These are lazy short cuts to creativity that would unfortunately show up decades later in Firefly.

Howard Hawk’s Gunsmoke from Another World #2 (February 1952).

Ran out of my happy pills a few days ago and new ones haven’t arrived through the mail as of yet. Thought I had the timing right to receive more before the supply was exhausted but I guess not. I ordered a bunch of other medications and supplies at the same time so that probably slowed everything down until it could all be shipped at once. Not a big deal though and I can cope, especially since the constant screams emanating from all my fingers are telling me that everything is under control and I should relax.

BREAKING NEWS ALERT FROM PIERRE, SOUTH DAKOTA, JANUARY 2012…ARMY GOES IN TO TAKE OUR GUNS!!!!  SEE I TOLD YOU WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF OBUMMER WINS!

The gang got kind of depressing in their final season. Once the Riverdale crew got the news the show was cancelled they knew they would be out of work and hopelessly typecast as players permanently stuck in period dramas set in the 1950s. In the final months the tunes the band decided to play during the show became much more depressing and angst-ridden. Taking their cue from the Scooby Gang when their television show was canceled Gregorian funeral chants became the featured music covering the zany chase scene montages. Said band-leader Archibald, “Reggie stole all our our money and spent it on the blond girl. I don’t give a damn anymore.”
Embedded above is their farewell song from the final episode of The Archie All-Fun Smile-Palooza Hour, originally broadcast Christmas Day, 1968. It was said at the time that the sobs of children could be clearly heard as far away as the city limits.

Actually, the song is from 1966 by The Patriots and I listen to it a lot. You can read more about them here. In similar fashion to the 1962 recording Turn, Turn, Turn the song lyrics come from a much older work of fiction. In this case the inspiration was from the 1932 poem As Fall the Leaves by Edgar Albert Guest.

As fall the leaves, so drop the days
In silence from the tree of life;
Born for a little while to blaze
In action in the heat of strife,
And then to shrivel with Time’s blast
And fade forever in the past.

In beauty once the leaf was seen;
To all it offered gentle shade;
Men knew the splendor of its green
That cheered them so, would quickly fade:
And quickly, too, must pass away
All that is splendid of to-day.

To try to keep the leaves were vain:
Men understand that they must fall;
Why should they bitterly complain
When sorrows come to one and all?
Why should they mourn the passing day
That must depart along the way?

Should have known better
