“Of the Month” March ’09

Link of the Month:
The Webcomics of David Willis
Gaah!  David Willis has been writing webcomics almost daily since 1999, at times running two or three different strips simultaneously.  Last week I gave myself the task of going back and reading his ENTIRE archive, ten whole years of strips, from day one through the present day.  Willis ranges from wacky, sitcomy-style humor to geek in-jokes to psychological studies of damaged people to epic save-the-world science fiction action adventures.  Often in the same strips (and same panels).

Album of the Month:
Crystal Castles: Crystal Castles
Really fun, energetic, and infectious electronic music with a bunch of 8-bit Nintendo, GameBoy, and Atari sounding samples making up the backbone with smothe/distorted/ferocious vocals by Alice Glass, and driving dance beats thrusting the music relentlessly forward.

Game of the Month:
The Areas of My Expertise by John Hodgman
The only book you’ll ever need to own.  Except for the sequal, More Information Than You Require.
