Again not a whole lot of weirdness that caught my eye this week. Is the Interweb becoming less weird? Or am I just getting less good at finding it? Either way, it's a disturbing trend. Anyway:
:: Greg reports on Megan Fox's rather odd choice of body art.
:: Already familiar to readers of his Encyclopedia of Fantastic Victoriana (and if you're not a reader of it, why on Earth not?!) is Jess Nevins's defense of Edward Bulwer-Lytton, who is usually derided as one of history's worst writers. I've never read him, personally.
:: For some reason, Steven thinks that people should feel significant cognitive dissonance over the fact that he has long hair and yet is not a liberal. Maybe he's not living in the right place; I know plenty of fairly long-haired gents who aren't hippies at all.
:: I was never a fan of Popeye, either in cartoons or in that horrible Robin Williams movie. Never liked him. But until I started reading Comics Curmudgeon, I never knew that Popeye is a daily comic strip too -- and a really, really weird one at that.
