Icons, Movies, and the Red Scare 06:17 pm
I caught a bit of Lou Dobbs at lunch to-day. The guest host was talking about the contaminated toys from China--she kept referring to the country as "Communist China", as did all the correspondents. Isn't that great? By the gods, what a pathetic attempt to draw attention from the purely capitalist cause of the problem. I feel like the Lou Dobbs crew really misses the 80s.

I was surprised last night by how many good movies are public domain and available for download at archive.org. I got a really nice copy of the brilliant film noir Detour, the terrific His Girl Friday, and a bunch of Charlie Chaplin films. And they all work on my iPod.

I didn't feel too motivated to-day, so after working on my comic for only three hours, I started making Pre-Raphaelite LJ icons. They're for anyone who wants them;
