There’s a new battle up on Contest of Champions. This week, we’ve got a battle between two part-man, part machine heroes, Deathlok and Cyborg. I’m defending Deathlok, and if you head over to CoC and it appears as if Miles is getting the better of me, just rest assured that I’m merely toying with him, and the hammer will have been dropped, numerous times, before the end of the week.
However, comma, I’m counting on you, DD&U Nation, to get over there and vote for me. I’ve yet to win one of these contests, and it’s starting to weigh on me. I mean, I know I’ve been substantively better than Miles each and every week, and yet somehow the voting never reflects that. Anyway, get on over there and vote! And comment, too. We love reader input. Love it to death!
So this is it! The debut battle on Contest of Champions! The fearsome Parallax creature versus the powerful Phoenix Force! I’m defending Parallax, so check out Contest of Champions and vote for your favorite blogger: me! I’m counting on DD&U Nation for a strong turnout.

A few days ago, I posted a video of Taking Back Sunday performing a delightful song on the children’s show Yo Gabba Gabba. In it, I may have unfairly maligned one of my personal heroes and a poet who speaks for our generation, Jesse Lacey. While it’s still true that I can’t envision him dropping the brooding, self-serious routine long enough to do something as great as “We All Love Our Pets,” he’s still capable of breaking out of his shell just a skosh, in his own gruff sort of way. In that spirit, here’s Jesse Lacey talking to Marvel.com about the mad titan Thanos and his favorite Daredevil comics.
# From the annals of grudging respect: I never want to admit that the Red Socks do anything worthwhile, but this is a good project they’re engaging in. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a real thing, but there are still a lot of people, in the military and outside of it, who don’t treat it with the gravity it deserves. Good for the Red Socks. In this one instance, I wish them luck.
# In honor of my younger self who, like every 6-year-old boy, was CONVINCED he was going to be a paleontologist, here’s a wacky story about a tiny tyrannosaurus they just discovered in China. It’s the size of a man!
