Now that Doc's back in his arms again, I guess we know it was the arms that caused the wall-bashing earthquake, right? Then what's going on in this strip from Tuesday?
Did Daily Spider-Man just lurch clumsily into the realm of nonlinear storytelling on purpose or by accident? One little "Earlier..." narration block could've fixed this.

I came across this randomly but it's a fun and enlightening way to spend eight minutes. Some sharp cookie named Tony Zhou talks about Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright and how he's keeping movie comedy innovative while most people are forgetting how. Check it!

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — It's graduation day for movie star
The British actress best known as
Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies was among 2,000 graduates receiving degrees Sunday from Brown University. She tweeted a photo of herself in cap and gown.
Watson graduated with a bachelor's degree in English literature from the Ivy League university in Rhode Island.
The 24-year-old started at Brown in 2009, the same year she was named the highest-grossing actress of the decade by the
Guinness Book of World Records.
Watson had a busy film career during her time as a student, releasing both parts of
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, This is the End, and the recent Biblical epic Noah.

You can make a difference! Save my marriage. The old bag said last Friday 'now get this shit out.' I don't know if it was me or the Lego she was talking about but I think it was the Lego.
This is a French short that I saw as part of Fantastic Animation Festival, which screened at Rhode Island College in 1977 or so. My mom took DCD and I to this because afterwards they screened The Point, which is slightly less obscure.
Fast forward to 1984 and JPX and I are throwing together our first claymation. Our main character was basically a mash-up of Indiana Jones and my dim memories of these guys from Icarus. Sorry I don't have a visual for "Indy," but JPX and I are working on that.
Every once in a while I've hunted around the web for this movie but I only found it last Sunday (it sucks when you don't have an actual title to look for). Needless to say I'll be hitting Eddie Brant's Saturday Matinee, my local purveyor of obscure VHS goodies, to see if I can find the whole movie. Apparently this was the first conglomeration of animated shorts ever. Woo!
Heh. I just called Eddie Brant's and got their message. What's amazing is that they're in business when they only open their doors between 1pm to 6pm and they're closed Sunday and Monday. Only in Los Angeles. The best part was the message started with "You've reached Eddie Brant's Saturday Matinee, the first video store... and probably the last video store."
Hackers quietly broke into eBay two months ago and stole a database full of user information, the online auction site revealed Wednesday.

I tried Marco Polo around the house, first putting the phone on a dresser. That was an easy one -- I said "Marco" and the phone replied. I also put the iPhone under a couple of blankets, and that worked too. Then I put my iPhone in a drawer in the kitchen, and while the sound was muffled, I could hear it respond. Obviously, if I got too far away -- like two rooms away -- it wouldn't trigger. But I would be quite happy to shout out a couple of different "Marco's" to find my lost phone.
