Fame Day: 봉천동 귀신 [Bongcheon-Dong Ghost]

If you live anywhere in North America [and judging by the site stats that is more than likely] you are probably very, very aware that today is All Hallows’ Eve, which is what I prefer to call what is more popularly known as Halloween. To be very, very clear, I’m not a huge fan of the holiday. In fact, if yesterday’s post was any indication, easily my favourite part of the occasion is saying that things are “spoo-oo-ooky”; it’s a lot of fun, you should definitely try it out.

For real, though. I do not enjoy being scared, nor do I really get kick out of scaring others. I have seen maybe two horror movies in their entirety, and didn’t particularly like either of them. I mean, I appreciate that Paranormal Activity terrified me, but I’ve been informed by many that it is not scary in the least, which might lead you to believe that I am by no means a good judge of the genre.

Shame Day: Sinfest and Feminism

Every day, without fail, I read three webcomics.

Cyanide & Happiness, SMBC, and Sinfest.

Intelligence and Intellectual Property

As luck would have it, just as I was perusing the AV Club’s various articles on the US networks’ fall programming, regular CWR reader/my friend Marilyn brought a certain issue to my attention.

This fall CBS will be bringing the series Intelligence to the small screen [not to be confused with the CBC series of the same name that aired in 2005]. The following is the trailer, which I only saw half a minute of earlier because it failed to grab my attention:

Fame Day: Loading Artist

Here at Culture War Reporters, we talk about comics.

A lot.

Today we’ll be doing it again.

Part of this is due to the fact that as the weeks go by, I find myself struggling harder and harder to point to anything worth applauding, cynic that I am.

Another part of this is due to the fact that my alternative topic for this week is the upcoming annual Socialism Conference, hosted by the ISO. While I think their eloquent and accessible presentation of alternatives to the psychotic system we live in is well worth a Fame Day showcasing, I seriously doubt my co-editor would be cool with me essentially hawking my own political views on our blog.

What I imagine his reaction would be. [I actually would not have had a problem with this. -Evan]
