Comedy Break: Lazy Sunday, or how did I miss this one?

Somehow, it took me a full year to catch up with the rest of the world to check out the absolutely hilarious and viral phenomenon entitled "Lazy Sunday." I had no idea that Saturday Night Live was funny again!

From DSL Blues to WoW

Sometime when I have the proper angst and energy, I'll have to get into how much trouble I've had with my Internet connectivity at home over the last few months. Suffice to say for now that our cable broadband era ended a few weeks ago (after a Herculean struggle against the lords of the interwebs tubes) when we switched over to DSL. Was on the phone again today with the DSL folk trying to get ever evolving modem issues worked out.

I'm back online, for the moment at least. Which means I can do something I've been planning for a while now: check out a trial edition of World of Warcraft (or WoW) over the new year's break. Many of the people I work with are gaming uberphreaks, so being beyond n00b in terms of the WoW is something that's been irking me for some time.

Plus, I've been too much with the blogs and not funning enough of late. I'm also obsessed with getting a Nintendo Wii, but that's a whole other affair.

For those stalwart few...

For those stalwart few who still stop by every now and then…

I abandoned this space around six months ago or so to concentrate all of my energies on Blogcritics – mostly helping to run the joint but managed to write around two or three full-length pieces a week, on average. I love it, it's fun, it's great, as is my fantastical job producing web products in downtown LA these days.

However, I've had a growing desire to get back to a more casual style of writing, a place to jot my thoughts about what's going on in online media, TV, and politics mostly (the three general areas that I tend to keep up with, more or less) without the time and skull pressures necessary to produce formal, full length pieces.

That's all to say I haven't forgotten my dear old DB, the dear old Bust.

Oh, and I'll try to throw in some laughs every now and again. Let's kick things off with some classic comedy… and you can't get more classic than The Kids in the Hall's Eradicator!

Check it… "you can unmask me… it's your right."
