Good Twintails Day Celebrates a Legendary Hairstyle

Those trying to uphold certain November “traditions” are likely greatly upset with Japanese otaku as yet another unofficial holiday has led to a rapid dispersal of sexy art on social media, with Good Twintails Day celebrating the hairstyle that is “twintails” and all the fictional characters who wear them. As per usual, several individuals using […]

The Hardways #1

I liked Russell Lissau’s Old Wounds when I read it several years ago (unfortunately, it no longer seems to be available digitally), so he got in touch about his newest project, The Hardways, and sent over a copy of the first issue. Illustrated by Shawn Richison, it’s the beginning of a five-issue miniseries, a Las Vegas-set caper story, that also launches Double Down Comics. This first issue has the schlubby Maury getting kidnapped after a successful run at the craps [...]

Major Holmes & Captain Watson

These days, I’m excited by how many good Sherlock Holmes projects there are. (I’m even more excited if Mycroft’s in them.) Of course, it’s always a dice roll when ordering comics on Kickstarter if you don’t already know the creators or publisher, but I was pleasantly surprised by this comic series, which came out in reasonable time and of good quality. Major Holmes & Captain Watson is written by Jeff Rider and illustrated by Ismael Canales. It stars the blond [...]

Review: Neither Confirm Nor Deny

— by RON WILKINSON — The early 1970s were not boring. Continuing the momentum of the riotous 1960s, a five year period saw President Nixon’s resignation, the end of US involvement in Viet Nam and the Hughes Glomar Explorer. OK, the Glomar Explorer may not be at the top of everyone’s memory banks. If not, […]

What Did You Eat Yesterday? Volume 14

Obviously, I’m not rushed to keep up with Fumi Yoshinaga’s What Did You Eat Yesterday? series — but since we’re at a point where we’re lucky to get one volume a year, I think I’m better off saving it to savor. Much like the many delicious-sounding meals Shiro makes for Kenji. What Did You Eat Yesterday? volume 14 came out about a year ago, and the next book (yay for continuing!) is due out May 2021. As with the previous [...]

Original Content podcast: ‘The Crown’ introduces its Princess Diana

“The Crown,” Netflix’s lavish historical drama about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, has returned for a fourth season that focuses on Elizabeth’s relationship with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and on Prince Charles’ troubled marriage to Diana, Princess of Wales.

‘Black Narcissus’ Featurette Dives into the Making of FX’s Limited Series Starring Gemma Arterton

The first trailer for Black Narcissus released back in September didn’t do much to convince us that the three-part limited series adaptation of the best-selling novel by Rumer Godden would be worth watching this winter instead of just revisiting 1947 movie from Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. But now a new “first look” featurette dives a little more into the story and reveals some details about the making of the project starring Gemma Arterton. Check out the Black Narcissus featurette be...

David Fincher Originally Wanted to Cast Kevin Spacey and Jodie Foster in ‘Mank’ in the ’90s

David Fincher is notorious for having a very particular way of doing things. It’s gotten the filmmaker in the headlines a couple times: Oh, Gary Oldman had to do 100 takes; oh, production shut down because of Ben Affleck’s hat. But every now and then, one of those tics will prevent Fincher’s project from ever getting off the ground. See: the upcoming Mank, which had been a longtime passion project for Fincher, with a development history reaching back to the ’90s. Fincher’s father Jack wrote the...

Is "nappy" a racial slur?

It's censored in the New York Times "Spelling Bee" game today: The "Help" page only says: "Our word list does not include words that are obscure, hyphenated, or proper nouns. No cussing either, sorry." So "nappy" must be a "cuss." I've noticed in the past that "coon" is off the word list, even though the word "coon" can mean "raccoon" (or, though there's not much occasion to say this anymore, a member of the Whig party). "Nappy" can also mean "diaper." And it can describe the surface of some...

Sensei, Ore ni Kamawazu Itte Kudasai Aggressively Fingers Until Orgasm

Sensei, Ore ni Kamawazu Itte Kudasai will effortlessly attract the attention of avid ero-manga readers as the series revolves around a mangaka who can’t produce results unless she is masturbating, an absurd premise that promises all sorts of raunchy situations.

Cool stuff on the Internet: Fourier Transform tutorial, impedance matching network calculators

An Interactive Introduction to Fourier Transforms Using a series of animations, the author of this page, Jez Swanson, shows how Fourier transforms work. One of the first animations shows how a square wave is made up of an infinite series of harmonically-related sine waves. A frame of this animation is shown at right. One of the cool things about these animations is that you can control how many of the sine waves are included in the reconstruction of the square wave and see in real time how that...
