Tonight was my one chance during this project to draw Meryl Streep (as Marge Thatcher, no less!) and i didn't do it. Sigh.
This weekend is much like Christmas weekend in that nobody is visiting this site. Still, for the dudes in russia who keep spamming me, stay tuned for tomorrow night's big finale! у вас есть нечего делать!
and you, dear reader, if you miss it? eh--it'll still be here come january.

I'm pretty sure that virtually nobody is looking at this site during this big winter holiday pandenominational clusterfuck, but still i'd like to wish everybody out there in the ether a happy holiday season. as for the mixed media daily family, we've set up a handsome little tree, and i made a nice christmas dinner for everybody here, and now i'm going to begin watching the walking dead season 2. so, um, happy zombie christmas to you all! i'll be back in a few hours to begin the first of the last six drawings for this project.

And in the interests of putting any speculation to rest, here's what those weird, steampunk-y meters signify: how much room you were allotted on A1, how much you love communist dictatorships, and how much money you probably had your people spend on sunglasses at Macy's last year.

We are deep into that time of the year when our attention is called to many, many things that aren't news. The front page largely gave in to this widespread seasonal ADD, choosing to feature smaller stories, ham, horses, and, uh, priests. Of course, in the middle of all this "fuck it, it's holiday time" sentiment is one of the biggest stories of the year--the end of the Iraq war. Now all that's left to do is take a good hard look at how that all went.

Initially i thought that the spadea would be the guiding idea behind this drawing, but, when it came time to execute, the incensed "it's all about jesus" lady took over the whole operation. so i guess kudos to her. you win this round, "it's all about jesus" lady!

Congratulations to Tony Chavez of Huntington Beach, who made it to the top of the front page for the low low price of a couple of Angels jerseys. Sorry I had to transform your head into a bizarre cardinal/bill plaschke hybrid, but that's the price of fame, my friend.

A pair of helicopters, Mitt Romney's big worried face, the phrase "panda poop"--this entry practically drew itself! I would like to point out that I was able to resist the urge to incorporate the phrase "panda poop" into the drawing. kudos to me. i did, however, manage to insert the unfortunate pairing of "contraceptive" and "pull out." i know, i know, that's completely juvenile. i accept that. and i also accept that you might want to give me a piece of your mind about this whole tawdry affair. so please, send all of your disapproval/disappointment/pictures of you offering me a high five to my mixed media daily email and i will respond in kind. thank you.

European credit chaos, strikes in Britain, and further revelations about corruption in the LA county prison system were no match for the advertising juggernaut that is the The Kardashian sisters (via wraparound ad--and I'd like to point out that all year I've been calling those half-page adverts "wraparound ads," although I have no idea if they are in reality called something else. If anyone out there knows the proper, no-doubt colorful industry jargon for these commercial pleas, leave me a comment or an email and I'll, um, do something nice for you someday.). To make things a little more interesting, I've paired one of them with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Woody Allen. And don't tell me you wouldn't watch that reality show. You totally would.
