Dear Media: Ur Doin it wrong

For god's sake, if you're going to cover the George Carlin story, do it right.

Every fucking media outlet mentions the existence of the 7 Words You Can't Say on TV.

None of them are saying what they are.

If these words have ever been news, today's the day. Even Kevin Martin and his band of jackbooted idiots at the FCC can't reasonably argue otherwise (not that they've ever reasonably done anything). Last I checked, in fact, the FCC doesn't regulate cable or the print media, so CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and others should have no problem at all.

So, reporters, remember the following words:

Shit. Piss. Fuck. Cunt. Cocksucker. Motherfucker. Tits.

Seven motherfucking words. Say 'em until Al Swearengen blushes. It's not quite what George would have wanted (I think that would be, "to not be dead"), but it's a start.

Dear Firefox Developers

Stop releasing "final" products that crash ten times as often as your stable beta products do.

Seriously, I need to set up a script that pops up a message say, "Are you sure you want to print? Because some drunken Firefox developer inserted some code at the last minute that causes the browser to crash about 50% of the time you try to print from the browser."

Woohoo!

The New York Times is paying attention to Middleman, which is a damned fine summer show (and about as geek-friendly as they come).

(ganked from taraljc)

As always, summer viewing continues to get better -- Middleman, In Plain Sight, Weeds, Venture Brothers, and half-naked Billie Piper Secret Diary of a Call Girl are all fun, and we haven't even gotten to Eureka, Burn Notice, or The Closer yet.

The only reason I'm still buying any non-Vertigo DCU books

Dwayne McDuffie is to the JLA what Mark Waid was to Flash during his first run.

(Of course, McDuffie is also currently doing a damned fine job -- in spite of the Hell that is the current Marvel Universe -- of writing Fantastic Four, whose only other solid regular writer since Walt Simonson's run was by none other than Waid. But his writing on JLA -- as well as the work he did on the animated series -- is superlative.)
