How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility.

Top 13 Sesame Street Scares (#7)#7: The Count Sleeps OverTop 13 Sesame Street Scares (#7) in Personal More Like This
So one night, the Count decides to sleeps over with Bert and Ernie—and no, they’re not sleeping over for “that” reason! Get your mind out of the gutter!
Bert lets the Count sleep in his bed while he sleeps in the living room, allowing the Count to sleep with Ernie. (In separate beds! I said get your mind out of the gutter!)
Anyway, the Count has a hard time sleeping, so Ernie suggests that he counts sheep. The Count does exactly that—and being the Count, he can’t stop counting sheep.
His counting, laughter, and sudden bursts of thunder and lightning keep poor Ernie up all night, making it so that neither of them do much sleeping. (Because the Count is keeping him awake with his counting. Sheesh! What is your deal?!)

Think I gave away too much of the story? Oh, believe me, I haven’t. That’s only the first part. The rest of it is far more horrifying.
There were two young boys named Trevor and Will. They spent most of their summer vacation hanging around town, looking for things to do.
One hot August night, the boys were sitting on a fence by the main road. There was a cornfield just across the road. Suddenly, Trevor spotted something in the field. In the darkness, it was difficult to make out, but he thought it looked like some kind of weird animal.

For those of you unfamiliar with the internet, creepypasta are scary stories that are circulated through the internet, usually through discussion forums or e-mail.
The term "creepypasta" is a variation of "copy and paste" and derives from the viral nature of these stories, how they are spread by copying and pasting them.
I love creepypasta and actually consider some of them to be creepier than most horror movies. And I feel there's a good reason for that.
While horror movies are created by big media companies for the sake of raking in profit, stories such as creepypasta or "urban legends" are much more organic, deriving from the imagination of a single person and achieving notoriety by being spread from person-to-person through personal correspondence.

To kick off “Blame The Fright” month, I’ve decided to start by sharing the very first horror movie ever. Coincidentally enough, it’s also one of the very first movies, period. First released in January 25, 1896, the movie is a French film known in English as “The Arrival of the Mail Train.”
I know what you’re thinking: how is a 50-second clip of a train pulling into a station considered a horror flick? Well, it’s because the “horror” part of the film was very much unintentional.
Admittedly, this film is passé by today standards. Heck, most of you could probably film a more entertaining video clip with your camera phone of your cat doing something cute or crazy and then post it on Vine!

Growing up in the early days of the internet, I was enthralled with Snopes.com and would regularly peruse its pages reading up on urban legends and other quaint and curious volumes of forgotten internet lore.
To this day, urban legends still enthrall me. They have that eerie quality to them where you know in the back of your head that it's all made-up nonsense, but the overall plausibility of the story makes you second-guess as to whether or not it's real.
Which, of course, it was only fortunate that Snopes and its crack team of expert fact-checkers were there to discern these modern myths and determine whether they were fact or fiction.
Most were false. Others were true. And yet the most eerily creepy ones were always those rated undetermined.
All this month, I'll be sharing some of my favorite urban legends, all courtesy of Snopes.

Once again, I share with you one of my favorite urban legends from Snopes, this one about a group of Siberian scientists in the 1980s who accidently drilled a hole into hell and recorded the tortured screams of the damned.
This was a major "news" story that ran in many newspaper tabloids and Christian magazines as credible evidence of hell, but like every other urban legend, it was proven to be pure bologna.
There was even a short audio clip that went along with the story, but it too proved to be a hoax, as it was later revealed to be a sound bite from the 1972 movie Baron Blood.
Even if you believe in a literal hell, you cannot believe that it exists under the earth's crust. How can the earth's core possibly house the innumerable damned souls who have ever died since time immemorial? It's

At first, Gabriel was nothing more than a character named ONE. He had no backstory, no face, nothing. I just wanted to create a character that was a badass, yet with a sense of humor.

5 LevelsI've spoken as guest speaker a number of times over the years (come visit me at SCAD Atlanta in January). While I'm not the best or most patient teacher, I think my strength is my pragmatic and blunt approach to the business side of comics. In order to help the students think of a "5 YEAR PLAN" (more on that in an upcoming post), I'll often break down the different page rate levels of comic book artists as a way to help analyze the playing field of our industry. If there's a ladder to success, what's wrong with defining each rung? I imagine such a breakdown helpful for moving up in most any industry, not just comics.5 Levels in Personal More Like This
Here are the 5 LEVELS of comic artists as I see them--NOT based on talent but on page rates, popularity, and the prestige of the titles the artist works on. You might define them differently or have more than just 5, but I find that less-is-more when it comes to people being able to retain information.
5 Year Plan*Because I'll be teaching in about a week at SCAD, I've been thinking a lot about what to tell the students. And I wrote it out so that I could solidify it in my head. This stuff is for younger artists mostly, so feel free to skip.5 Year Plan in Personal More Like This
When I spend time with another comic artist, sometimes I'll ask, "What's your 5 year plan?" In other words, what steps is he taking in order to gain control over his career in order to move up the ladder? Usually I don't get much of an answer.
The reason I think many comic artists aren't forward-thinking has to do with the way our industry is set up. Whether by conscious design or through the neglect of its participants, younger freelancers get into a habit of complacency while hoping for a chance to suckle from the teet of a major publisher. Waiting around for a career doesn't promote the idea of freelancers taking active control of their OWN careers.
If I had to sum up the 5 Year Plan
5%If you're reading this now, it means you're roughly in the 5%. Most people who go online to read about comics will end up reading previews and "top 10" lists--subjects we all, or course, enjoy. But the articles/blogs that critically analyze our industry are usually only read by two types: people in the biz whom are affected by this stuff, and the few readers who are interested in reading more than word balloons when it comes to comics.5% in Personal More Like This
And I'm not knocking people who don't care to read these articles. All readers are contributing to the industry with their buying power, and I'm thankful for them, even if they're not in the 5%. I admit, if I had a normal 9-5 job and a boss that was kicking my ass 5 days a week, I might not have the tolerance for these sorts of articles either.
That being said, I think we need more of these articles/blogs written from different points of view--more from creators especially. The 2010s will likely be r

The United States Congress is proposing two laws that address the problem of wide-scale unlicensed distribution on the Internet of motion pictures, songs, trademarked goods, and patented pharmaceuticals.
One of the proposals is called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and would direct search engines in the United States to block Internet sites outside the United States that are primarily engaged in distributing unlicensed content.Another proposal called PIPA (Protect IP Act) would block websites located in the United States as well.The Obama administration is putting a stop to these proposals. It wants the Internet companies and the content companies to get together and come up with more functional and less destructive solutions.

Witnesses describe it as an oily-black creature with either very stunted legs or an actual fish-tail. It strides around on abnormally long arms.

Feel free to post any evidence you may have found yourself in the comments section.

It started in Northampton earlier in the year and has since spread to a number of other towns and cities around Fair Blighty.
The horrific Northampton Clown was the first. “Patient Zero”, if you will. He would simply….appear. Sometimes he would knock on doors and randomly offer to paint the window frames for the bemused resident (though he never seemed to carry paint or a brush). On another occasion, he emerged from a lake and handed out balloons.
Since this hellish creature first showed up, there have been a deluge of sightings, from right across the country, causing such a degree of distress that the authorities are issuing advice.
