Whorin'

Hey there, kids! I'm back from a very lovely holiday weekend with the best gal in the world. I would tell you all about it, but it would only make you wish you had someone so awesome in your life, and I'm not about making people feel bad. Unless it's by punching them. So, instead, how about some whoring?

After many, many, MANY delays, the new High Hat is finally up! It was a bitch and a half getting this one live, folks, but personally, I think it was worth it. Stop by and take a look, won't you? In addition to three pieces by your faithful correspondent -- an overview of notoriously eccentric pulp novelist Harry Stephen Keeler, the highs and lows (and especially highs) of the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, and a piece on the vagaries of democratic and participatory fiction -- there's also excellent contributions by:

- melpster, writing about slash fiction and its appeal to women
- ezrael, with an epic, insightful essay about the character of Superman
-
thehighhat, with interesting interpretations of the Fiery Furnaces' Blueberry Boat and Grant Morrison's Seaguy
- thevulgartrade, with his piece on art and technology in the digital age
- Phil Nugent, turning in eminently entertaining pieces on recent rock documentaries, sketch comedy DVDs, and images of the President, as well as a remembrance of the wonderful world of PREZ
- Scott von Doviak, with another "Bottom Shelf" worst-of-the-worst filmology, this time about Marlon Brando
- Steve Hicken, writing about the legacy left by John Cage on the 20th century

There's also terrific stuff like Jessica Langer's piece about growing up as a gamer girl, Gary Mairs' interview with Paul Hernandez about the Transportation Futuristics show, a remembrance of John Peel by Jim Eaton-Terry, a new interactive crossword by Joe Boucher, and a special-to-the-High-Hat "Prison Funnies" by Chip Zdarsky.

Your comments welcome; take a look. There's some great stuff there, folks, and you won't regret giving it some eyeball.
