This week's comic review
Wow! Just found this last night and I'm flipping over it! To those familiar with the mystique of Magna, it may not seem so different, but right now there's nothing like it on Keenspace. Apparently produced by a Thailander, the disclaimer reads (suspiciously I might add) "WARNING::my english is so poor,i mean,real bad-_-dont forget to ignore my gramma as well & Nothing here is really about Roman history,most are from my own imagination.so if u saw sth weird in my comix,just ignore it,okay?". I'm really grooving on the crazy words - teen angst - SF - magna layout mix, and the art is just totally fabulous. I apologize in advance, however, for the hours you will spend downloading each strip; it's either the world's slowest server or the world's farthest away. It will be worth it.
A Space Odyssey Comes To An End
What an exciting couple of weeks it's been! So exciting, that I just forgot to update my page last week, sorry. Denis Tito is back on earth, and just about everybody agrees (except NASA) that things will never be the same again. Kudos to Andy for pointing out the significance of this event at this time! Whew, we barely made it. The adventure played out dramatically all the way to the end, with elements so incredible that they couldn't have appeared even in fiction. Shortly before the scheduled Soyuz launch, the vast and complex U.S. computer systems on the station suffered a domino-like failure, but the Russians, either skeptical that the U.S. could be trusted to be telling the truth or perhaps just unperturbed because they've seen it dozens of times with Mir, blasted off anyways! Tito, to the surprise of no one (except NASA), did not cause any Gilliganeske equipment breakage on the station. Dan Goldin aquired a token "well behaved millionaire", James Cameron, whose name he paraded before Congress during Tito's flight and called him "an American Patriot" despite the fact that Cameron is actually Canadian. Somebody at the space agency seems to have sniffed the turning tide of public opinion, as news organizations were apparently told that work on board the space station was suspended to "make Tito feel welcome" according to a 6:00 broadcast I saw. No doubt the astronouts were glad for a break anyhow, and by all accounts conducted themselves quite humanly during the week. Return to earth went off smoothly; check out the magnificent photos of the landing site in this article.
About my pages
My goal in adding this page to the WTS is to entertain my fellow toasters, and maybe even a small segment of the rest of the Web. I'll endeavor to add something new every week, so keep checking in, or look for any announcements about my pages in The Wunderland Weekly News.
My offerings fall into two categories: First, original works; artwork, music, photos, or writing that I'm collecting here for self-publication on a scale unimaginable a few years ago. Hopefully, the world's collective yawn won't totally blow me over, but I think you'll enjoy it if you've gotten this far. Second, Stuff I Found On The Web, brought back and held up to the light for your enjoyment. There's a whole underground world of music publication on the Web through "MIDI", and I'm also wild about Webcomics.
Go directly to the corners of my electronic world by using the navigation bar appearing at the top of this page, or jump down below that to find out what I've added this week. I'll also someday be experimenting with time, allowing you to scroll through previous weeks' versions of my pages where appropriate.
