The Ultimate Fate of Hum Dinger

Do you remember the Hum Dinger from this post or this post or this post? Have you been anxiously asking yourself in the mirror every Friday, Whatever might have become of that Hum Dinger guy? If so:

Obama vs Osama!

Check it, Beautiful Barack is doing what Dubya never could! Punching out Osama bin Laden on a comic book cover, that is. It's a homage to the classic Jack Kirby cover with Captain America punching Hitler.

Cartoonist Erik Larsen has a history of riding the Obama wave. I think this is like his third or fourth Obama cover.

Dylan Horrocks Draws Piracy

Cartoonist Dylan Horrocks (whose Hicksville rules) posted this image a couple of days ago, and today a wider audience than probably ever was exposed to his work, when The Pirate Bay put it on their website.

Scans of Hicksville are sadly not available via TPB just now, but you can download the Horrocks-written Hunter: The Age of Magic.

Famous Swedes #4: The Pirate Bay Boyos

Look! A revival of an obscure and impopular SUPERBLOG!! feature: Famous Goddamn Swedes. Previous honorees include (and are in fact limited to) Tommy Nilsson, The Ipren Man, and Svullo. This post was originally supposed to be about Ingvar Kamprad, the richest and evilest man in the world (wait, here he is), but I changed the subject at the last minute because of the Spectrial.

The Pirate Bay, as none of you probably know, is a fine website where the deserving can partake of CULTURE without feeling bad about feeding Hollywood executives' cocaine habits. Said CULTURE is usually provided by King Kong of Cambodia. The website itself is run by sexy IT nerds Freddy No, Goodpeace Blackbeard (so named for his hacker beard as well as his benevolent attitude towards lawyers) and filesharing messiah Peter Healthy. The three are pictured above, Simpsonized.

These poor boyos, who only wanted to bring CULTURE to the masses, are now being unfairly prosecuted by Sweden's latest evil government (which has actually turned out to be just as evil as the last one) and lobbyists for Hollywood and IFPI. (Warning: semi-random linkage in previous sentence.) The trial will take circa 13 days and today was day 5. Live coverage here (mostly in Swedish).

SUPERBLOG!! wholeheartedly supports the TPB cause, at least so long as nothing we own the rights to is made available in torrent form. Anyway, there is little doubt that justice will prevail. Down with all root-sucking jackasses!

Hum Dinger: Who He is and How He Came to Be

If, like most people who read the SUPERBLOG!! post Get Rich by Humming! on or after February 09, you've been wondering who Hum Dinger was and how he came to be, I suggest you read the following two pages from a comic book I like to call Spidey Super-Stories #24 since they will reveal everything.

In these pages, you will find out that David Dinger was once a rock singer with a terrible memory who hummed a song instead of singing the lyrics. This curious approach made him an instant success and he changed his first name to "Hum" and the bitches flocked to his shows... until one day when the crowd inexplicably started throwing tomatoes and lemons and salad at him instead. Mr Dinger, realizing his career was probably over, decided to turn to a life of Evil. He started walking the streets with only his trusty guitar and his trusty TV repair kit for company, one of which he later used in his criminal endeavors. But which one?! (SPOILER: He threw away the guitar between panels and he used his TV repair kit to impersonate a TV repairman. As you will maybe see in a later post, maybe.) Anyway, the following two pages will show (SPOILER!) exactly what I have just described:

Humming for evil: sometimes it's the only option left.

Fun #31: Assholes

Today is Monday. It's a brand new week and here is the second-to-last installment of FUN. I would say that I hope you enjoy it but the truth is that I care very little whether you do or not. FUN has always been an OCD kind of thing, I've knowingly posted sucky image upon sucky image, just because God Told Me To. But soon it will be over because all the FUN images will be Done. Look for Fun #32: The Death of Fun later this week!

Now: "Assholes":

You All Everybody

Do you - DO YOU - remember me mentioning a certain "Moo Cow"* in a recent SUPERBLOG!! entry? Well, that very same exact Cow has somehow managed to procure some images SPOILING events in upcoming episodes of the popular television series Lost: Island Blues starring Terence "Terry" Stepfather as the mysterious Mister Locke. Since Mr Cow's own blog was recently closed down by the government, Mr Cow has licensed the images to SUPERBLOG!! for publication. (Only one of them is truly great but I don't want to hurt his feelings so I'm posting them all.)

(*Real name: Markus Chapman, just like MY real name is Klaus Machiavelli.)

Cowboy Joe returns in episode 5.12, "The Good, the Bad, plus also Joe"! Wait for the whistle! SPOILER: "Joe" is short for Jacob.

While this may look like some cheap Taiwanese knockoff (or maybe a spoof!), the picture itself claims that the Pocket Jughead is "Official Lost: Island Blues merchandising" and I see no reason to doubt it. The camera doesn't lie! The product may tie in to an as-yet untitled upcoming episode in which Kate can't find a suitable partner and is forced to take matters into her own hands. Apparently James "Sawyer" Ford will lose his SPOILER! penis in a tragic showdown with the Smoke Monster, and Jack Shepherd is far too busy with island business to think about sex (read: impotent).

Sexuality will also be explored in episode 5.8, "Desmond Does Dallas", guest-starring Bryce Dallas Howard.

Charles "Charlie" Bongoloid will guest-star in the sixth season as the ISLAND GHOST. The Island Ghost is a wholly new character, not to be confused with Charlie Guitarist who died in season 3 (SPOILER alert!). The Island Ghost will be Cowboy Joe's greatest enemy in the fight for hearts and minds that Lost: Island Blues will revolve around in its last season. Of course it will lose in the end but it may strike some serious blows in Joe's face. Some serious Joe-blows!!

Get Rich by Humming!

In my long and pointless life, I have seen many awesome things. But none quite as awesome as... the Hum Dinger!

Is the Boar Future-Sawyer in Disguise?

I was talking with my good friend (sometimes enemy) Pepe Moko about the television series Lost, the one with the people on the island, remember? Anyay, Pepe recently re-watched season 1 and he thinks the BOAR that was Sawyer's nemesis way back then will play a huge role in upcoming eps, and so do I. SPECU-SPOILER!: I think it will turn out that all this time the boar was Future-Sawyer in disguise, time-jumped. So James Ford was chasing himself!! Himself!!!!

p.s. They're dead and in Hell and it's all someone's dream.

What They Made Me Watch in January, 2009

Hello dear Internet. Here is a list of the stuff, mostly movies, I watched in January. I thought about reviewing them all for your edification, and then I thought about reviewing some of them, and in the end I opted for not reviewing any of them. This means that I can go have a beer instead of rotting away in front of a computer screen. I've highlighted the movies I feel like recommending just now. Many of the others were pretty good, too, but an official SUPERBLOG!! recommendation is equivalent to, like, a four on the Universal Michael Keaton scale, or thereabouts. This many:

To make up for not reviewing anything this time, I may write a longish post on the Oscar nominees in the near future. I may also just go have another beer, and call it even. Thinking about it, this latter scenario seems far more likely.

Same Day!

Congrats to the oppressed SAMES, wrinkly minority population of the northest parts of Sweden. The Sames - also called Sami or Lap peeps - celebrate their National Day today. It could be their Independence Day if not for the fact that they are not independent but rather a tiny part of the vast and glorious Swedish Empire. HOWEVER, we can assume that, even though they act all smily and happy and resigned to their fate, in secret the Sames are sharpening their knives and preparing for revolution. It's what all the nations that Sweden tries to crush under its boot eventually do. Look at the Finns and the drug-addled Norwegians.

Here's the Sami flag. It looks like something I made up in Photoshop but it's the real deal:

But what does it mean? Dear God, what does it mean?!?

What Don't You Fucking Understand?

I'm gonna fucking kick your fucking ass. If you don't listen to Bale Out - RevoLucian's Christian Bale Remix:

(Link via the A. V. Club:

"You think this is some kind of a fucking joke?" Bale continued, punching a nearby plastic terminator robot so hard that the velcro attaching the plastic "ammo" to the hip of his futuristic GI Joe outfit fell to the ground with a sad click. "Like we're all just dressing up for Halloween? What don't you fucking understand? That's McG over there. Mc fucking G! I have to pretend that there's been a nuclear holocaust, and the world has been taken over by bad robots, and that this whole stupid thing is real! Fuck!"

). Think for one fucking second! Download the mp3. Hurry because this will only be funny for about ten minutes more!

(Note: McG is not, and has seldom been, the same as P McG.)

Obama and the Pig and the Piggy back

Someone told me I was a lazy blogger and a loser so I must blog very much from now. Every day I will post new Obama pictures except for the days when I'm not posting them. Every day!

Batman Forever!

If SUPERBLOG!! hadn't been a super-fan of Christian Bale before, it would be one now:

Have you heard the scorching on-the-set rant by Christian Bale, who was clearly furious at Shane Hurlbut, the director of photography for "Terminator Salvation"?
You can hear it right here but, please, don't go there if you are offended by coarse language or if you are a big fan of Bale and don't want your affections shaken.

I Want Another Dark Chocolate Horror Film Game and I Want It Now

Back in 2006, I played M&M's Dark Chocolate computer rebus game 50 Dark Movies Hidden in a Painting. I played it to perfection and I loved the experience like I love life. In the three years since then, I have only played real-life games like Electro Shuffle Board Hockey and Heroin Hero. But now I feel ready to start playing another computer game and I want one just like the one with the chocolate. So are there any similar games out there or will I have to make one up in my mind? Huh? Huh?

Haddy Jallow

Cover story in Swedish tabloid Expressen (the Ex-Priest):

Den svenska skådespelerskan greps på ett hotell i centrala Göteborg 00.40 natten till i går. Hon hade då omhändertagits av vakter och uppgavs ha uppträtt bråkigt och varit berusad - och gick till fysiskt angrepp när hon var på väg att gripas av en anländande polispatrull.

Google translated:

The Swedish actress was arrested in a hotel in central Gothenburg 00.40 night yesterday. She was then seized by the guards and allegedly behaved disorderly and was intoxicated - and went to physical attack when she was about to be arrested by an arriving police.

It's Haddy Jallow, slightly familiar for some from Säg att du älskar mig.

Currently Reading #32: Fresh Takes, Uncle Joachim


Saint Joachim ("he whom YHWH has set up", Hebrew: יהוֹיָקִים, Greek Ἰωακείμ) was the husband of Saint Anne and the father of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and therefore is ascribed the title of "forebearer of God", in the Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican traditions.
Joachim was described as a rich and pious man of the house of Amram who regularly gave to the poor and to the temple (synagogue) at Sepphoris.

He gave them a balloon to share.
