What is Your Spirit’s Destiny?

So this has turned out to be a good idea. People seem to like being introduced to new artists and artists seem to like being introduced to new people. In other words, if you’re a comic creator looking for a review, feel free to email us. We make a simple deal with all authors. We will never post a bad review. If we don’t like it we’ll tell you, but that’s it. No one here at World News Center is into causing new artists harm or making them look foolish.…

Ishtar Redux

I know that people get so excited when something seems to agree with their narrow view that they neglect to check the facts. It’s why, and how, the Tea Party thrives. That being said, atheists and rationalists are allegedly the people who live on facts and facts alone. I used to count myself among their number until I realized that if I was the most evolved creature in the universe then the universe was fucked. Therefore, while I subscribe to no particular religion, I do believe in God. I also…

Meet an Empress

We don’t really do comic book reviews, as part and parcel of our usual mayhem, but more and more indy creators have been crossing our paths lately so we figured why the hell not?

Age of Women?

It wasn’t all that long ago that women’s roles were clearly defined on television. Oh, there were certainly popular, well written, female characters. Often on female oriented shows. But the fully realized female was a rarity. Maybe you’d get a couple in a decade. Then the superhero phenomena hit the screen. In comic books women have played integral, and fascinating, roles for years. There was no way to bring these shows to life without bringing all of those women along. While Agent Carter and Heroes Reborn seem to have bitten…

Feliz Día de San Patricio (redux)

Back on March 17, 2011 I posted an often overlooked aspect of St. Patrick’s day. For example, every red headed Latin person you meet is part Irish. There is no exception to that rule. Why that is so is the subject I wrote about then. I mentioned this yesterday to a red headed Latina and she called shenanigans. Well, actually she said a wide variety of disparaging things about my possible heritage and diminished intellect, none of which are acceptable for sharing in public. So, for Rosa, I am re-posting…

Time For Another Reminder

I started this thread in November of 2010. Since the issues are the same, and your rights are the same, I see no reason to change this. Now, go vote. ******************** It is that time to, once again, exercise the right that millions of people have died to protect. Your right to vote. Cracked.com has a great piece on voting myths that many people believe. I strongly suggest you give it a gander. While funny as hell it is also serves as a clear reminder of why every vote counts.…

Getch Ur Stoopid On

At the turn of the 20th century the industrial revolution was upon us in full and science was highly prized as a concept and a reality. People were rapidly admitting what they did not know and were using logic and deductive reasoning to fill in the gaps. Not that this burgeoning age of enlightenment was all kittens and rainbows. Some used science to justify racism. They called it Social Darwinism. Survival of the fittest, as it were. There were, and are, a couple of problems with that, for lack of…

Helping Waste Your Time

So you’re sitting at home, naked on a beanbag, eating Cheetos and wondering how best to entertain yourself. We’ve all been there. It can be the highlight of the week for many. Hell, it can be the thrill of a lifetime if it’s done right. But, and I’m going out on a limb here, what if you want just a little bit more? Maybe something to actually watch or enjoy? Well, today, and today only, I’m going to try and give you some options. Some you may have heard about…
