Loyalty Links

As fans mock Frank Miller’s ‘Dark Knight III’ cover, Kurt Busiek defends it. Long story short. Frank Miller is one of the more highly regarded artists/writers in comics history. Sin City and 300 are his creation and his runs on Daredevil and Batman have heavily influenced the versions you've seen in the theater and on TV. The kicker is that his production over the last 10 years or so has been spotty at best. His follow up to the Dark Knight Returns was almost universally panned. The first released art from his second follow up to the Dark Knight Returns, The Master Race received a lot of attention this week, but it wasn't exactly the good kind of attention.

Kurt Busiek, best know for writing very good comics, came to Miller's defense on twitter. It's a pretty good read. Good enough that it's made me think about giving The Dark Knight II another chance and MAYBE take a look at DK3 when it comes out. I mean what's the worst that could happen? I end up selling it on ebay?

Microsoft announces Surface Book laptop with 13.5-inch display starting at $1,499. I thought it would only be fair to post something about this gorgeous looking Surface Laptop after posting that Microsoft is controlled by ants video yesterday. OMG this thing is sooooo sexy. I'm probably never going to be in the position that I have fifteen hundred dollars to drop on a laptop but if I did it would be this thing. I think it's the Nvidia GeForce GPU that really pushes this over the top for me. I know the knock against it is going to be that it's just a surface with a keyboard but with that GPU and an Intel i7 under the hood you definitely have a laptop that's incredibly powerful and versatile.

Brand Loyalty Is for Suckers. OMG there is a guy I work with who is APPLE FOR LIFE. It's insane how much of their Kool-Aid he's drank. The other day someone in the office who can't figure out how to change the ringtone on his android phone (yes, you read that correctly) was complaining about it and Captain Apple 4 Life was like "we'll maybe if you get a real phone". Like only Apple makes "real" phones. It's so weird.

Now don't get me wrong, I understand having some conformity in your digital life. No one wants to deal with like a dozen different types of proprietary software that refuses to play nice with each other. But when you start automatically writing off products from other companies before even giving them a chance you're just hurting yourself.

22 Stupidly Wonderful Halloween Costumes You Can Actually Buy. I know, I know this is pretty much the same list of terrible "sexy" halloween costumes every other website is doing but I actually found this one kind of funny. Which is hard for me to say considering it's on buzzfeed. BUZZFEED (shakes fist at the sky)
