A 'Candorville' Double-Header for Democracy!
PLUS: LA Times Continues it's Self-Destructive Lurch to the Right...
By Brad Friedman on 4/30/2006 3:35pm PT  

It looks like The LA Times dropped "The Boondocks" some weeks ago --- we noticed no explanation given --- even while they continue to Fox "News"-ize themselves and add insipid, unfunny, and disinformative "comics" like "Mallard Fillmore" to their line-up. What the hell is up with that?! We guess they prefer to ensure their circulation keeps dropping. (letters@latimes.com)

UPDATE: Several readers have written to let us know that The Boondock's creator Aaron McGruder is on sabbatical. Darrin Bell, Candorville's creator, confirms in an email he just sent us:

About the Boondocks, Aaron Magruder is taking a 6-month sabbatical, so it's either rerun his old stuff or run something new until he returns. I think most papers opted for reruns, but the Times and others are subbing in new strips. Boondocks should be back in September, just in time for the elections.

That's good news. In the meantime, at least they still carry "Candorville". For now...

Another one follows...

'I'm the Decider'
By Brad Friedman on 4/23/2006 10:44pm PT  


Koo-Koo-Ka-Choo...

(Hat-tip Justice Through Music for being the first, of about twenty places, that I found linking to this song over the last 24. Check out JTM's anti-war, anti-Bush song collection page, btw.)




'Our House...Up the River From Wall Street'
By Brad Friedman on 4/15/2006 8:30pm PT  

Abramoff, DeLay, Cunningham, Enron, Tyco, Jones Day, Sun Cruz...What more could you want in a Parody Music Video?! (Well, Diebold, ES&S and Sequoia maybe? We'll go ahead and give 'em credit for all of the above due to their inclusion of Jones Day. It's the least we can do.)

(Hat-tip to BRAD BLOG commenters --- and perhaps video brain-children? --- Bill Stark and Renu Parker)




FEATURING: Ed Asner, Bruce Funk, Tom Tomorrow and Faiz Shakir!
By Brad Friedman on 4/8/2006 8:44pm PT  

Had a hoot sitting in as Guest Host for my buddy Peter B. Collins last Thursday on KRXA in Monterey (and a few other affiliates). If you didn't catch the show live, please enjoy the archives below as you see fit. Some fun, and occasionally harrowing, interviews here for your listening pleasure...

HOUR 1 [MP3]
BRAD rants on the state of our electoral system meltdown and interviews FAIZ SHAKIR, of the Center for American Progress, on the breaking news that day of Bush revealed as the Leaker-in-Chief.

HOUR 2 [MP3]
A full hour-long interview with the great and high-larious cartoonist/blogger, TOM TOMORROW of This Modern World. On tooning, on blogging, on his new book, Hell in a Handbasket (please buy it!) and on the most obnoxious bumper music I could possibly find :-) --- Also he points us to a 2003 strip he did on the horror that is Diebold Electronic Voting Machines.

HOUR 3 [MP3]
First half-hour, Emery County, Utah's 23-year elected County Clerk, BRUCE FUNK, on being locked out of his office after having the temerity to allow an independent examination of Diebold's touch-screen voting machines in his county. He explains the harrowing details of what was found and what has happened to him since. Don't miss this one, especially if you haven't yet heard his story. You can send a note of support for him right here...

Second half-hour, the legendary ED ASNER --- Lou Grant himself --- on Hollywood and Politics, his encounter with Ronald Reagan and all other manner of stuff. Includes Asner telling Brad to "Shut up!" What more could ya want?! Enjoy!

'Moral' Values Edition
By Brad Friedman on 11/9/2004 2:09pm PT  

UPDATE: While I thought the above toon was clearly absurd, apparently, it may not be. See this post on the Conservative Leader who seems to now be claiming "God is indeed a Republican". (Via AMERICAblog)
