xkcd: Swimsuit Issue

Remember when the SI swimsuit issue was some of the best masturbatory material you could get as a 13 year old boy? (Well, probably not if you’re a girl, but still…)

Pulitzer Prize for Online Cartoon

“Mark Fiore, whose animated political cartoons appear on SFGate.com, the Web site of the San Francisco Chronicle, won the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning Monday.

It is the first time since the category of editorial cartooning was created in 1922 that the Pulitzer has gone to an artist whose work does not appear in print.”

via SFGate’s Mark Fiore wins Pulitzer Prize.

Brilliant stuff – funny and incisive. In addition to the one for which the Pulitzer was awarded – “Science-gate” – check out “The State of the Union We’d Like to See.” I liked these so much I just spent twenty minutes figuring out how to download and watch them offline.

zerode

is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, film buff and occasional reviewer, and former private detective. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

 

What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
