BREAKING – David Cross Repeats His Smile in Fan Photos

First, I let Todd Barry have it. Now Crossy: it’s YOUR turn!!!!! Compare these two “fan photos” of David Cross. Granted, it must be difficult to come up with a witty original facial expression every time some camera-wielding schmuck comes your way, but c’mon, these two faces are identical.

In related news, look at how much grayer David Cross’ beard has become. He’s finally either looking his age or feeling the unbearable weight of the universe on his shoulders. My money’s on the universe one.

AMNY

I noticed something very strange on my morning commute the other day. On page 15 of AMNewYork (a second-tier morning rag designed to leech off of its competitor, Metro) I saw a small display ad for a pet-sitting service. The ad featured a photo of a care-free cat bounding in mid-air. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I knew in my heart – I had seen that cat before. Only when I was at work a few hours later did it hit me – the cat was taken from a campy humorous jpg that perverted co-workers and college students had been forwarding to each other for years. Someone, for reasons unknown to me (but postulated upon in the next paragraph), had used that photo for this seemingly legitimate purpose.

My hope is that some young and crafty art director used that photo in the ad so that other young crafty art directors would recognize it and give him (or her, but most likely him) a small nod of recognition by posting it on his (or her) blog. So this posting is for you, young art director. There’s a whole world out there, and endless opportunities to insert phalluses, inside jokes, and references to masturbation into your work. So go out there and make me proud, but most importantly, make me laugh.

WordPress Update

There’s gone be some changes round these parts.

I know I used to harp on blogs but the time came when I had to admit defeat and embrace their ease of use.

I used to update this site manually, the old fashioned way, because I thought I was a purist. In much the same way some of us prefer the crackle and pop of those stupid vinyl records, I preferred to upload new content to this site via ftp and write much of the html by hand.

But do you know what that was? It was a gigantic pain in the ass. And who suffered? We all suffered. It sucked for me when I wanted to post something but was too lazy to write code for 20 minutes. And it sucked for you when you were bored – either unable or unwilling to seek out pornography – and thought that maybe you’d cruise on by the cleverest, because every once in a while – FUCK!!!! That fucker STILL hasn’t updated his website! What the FUCK is he waiting for?!?!

So now with the help of modern technology, I can upload new content to this site lickity-split without all the bullshit. But what’s reeeeally cool about “going blog” are the comments everyone can write. In fact, I strongly encourage you to leave a little something behind whenever you drop by. Don’t know what to write? Doesn’t matter. Nobody reads this shit anyway.

See you all in cyberspace!
