In a World with a Little Stuffed Bull...


No post tonight (sorry, folks)...not here at least. Since I was up all day yesterday tracking Grover Groundhog and his hilarious whistle-pig whimsey and land-beaver larks, I'm goin' to bed early with a mug of hot chocolate and a good book. But you can sgtill catch your daily dose of Bullyosity over at my pal Dorian's blog (postmodernbarney.com), where I helped him out by watching movie trailers for his feature In a World! Although I highly recommend that you skip all the movies we talk about, do not miss this column with the cutest co-writer of them all! (Yes, it's true...Dorian really is that cute.)

"Sluggo is always an option."

Say it ain't so, Mike Sterling! Today Mike is so busy fielding phone calls about when the Watchmen prequels are going to be available, and if there will be accompanying pogs, that he hasn't had time to do a complete post for the day! Don't worry, Mike! I will help you out! I hereby donate this post to Progressive Ruin so Mike can have a day to relax! Kick up your heels and dance, Mike!



NO, SLUGGO
