Howard Hallis, Driven...to Excellence!

I was searching for a brilliant piece of internet farcery, "Who Will Be Eaten First?" a Cthulhian parody of a Jack Chick tract.* Sadly, instead of the mindless horror of The Old Ones, I found something much more soul-chilling: a lawyerly cease-and-desist order. (http://www.howardhallis.com/bis/cthulhuchick/) (Again, sorry for the cut-and-paste--I am totally repeatedly flummoxed by blogger with the linking)

On the happier side of things, checking out Hallis's site led me to [duh-duh-duh ominous music] The Picture of Everything. Hallis is illustrating all of popular culture: [http://www.thepictureofeverything.com/] Wow!
I would love to snip some of it to show on this site, but that seems iffy, and the image is also really huge. Really huge. I mean, it's everything, right?



*For those of you for whom this term is unfamiliar, Jack Chick is the producer of some theologically revolting cartoon ...strips? They're tiny little things, two panels per page, and they are really awful if you don't belong to a very narrow demographic slice of Evangelical Christianity. He's not quite at Fred Phelps levels, but close. Cut and paste to get a taste: (and then go wash your eyeballs out with soap)
