Daredevil Gives the Gladiator His Due in Daredevil #96

After finally settling back into his old life in Hell's Kitchen as a lawyer and the costumed hero Daredevil, things are finally starting to look up for Matt Murdock in Daredevil #96. That is, until mysterious figures begin spying on his private life and he's pushed into defending one of his old Daredevil foes Gladiator in a murder case.

Ben Morse's review of Daredevil #95 on Wizarduniverse.com says, "This continues to be one of, if not the most consistently strong ongoing titles on the stands."

The second part of the hard-hitting new arc "To the Devil, His Due" is here, and Brubaker and Lark are just getting warmed up! As Daredevil fights to find the source of new and violent trouble in Hell's Kitchen, Matt Murdock struggles to piece his life back together. But when a woman from his past enters the picture, it could all go flying off the rails.

Brubaker and Lark present yet another critically acclaimed run of Daredevil as the next chapter of "To the Devil, His Due" continues in Daredevil #96.

Sgt. Pepper Under Attack Yet Again

The BBC reports that bands like The Killers, Oasis and The Kaiser Chiefs are among those folks who don't know to leave well enough alone and are instead planning on mounting on an assault on the #1 record of all time, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

We can take comfort, however, in knowing that the worst has already been done and couldn't dent the album in the least. And if you want a sample, go here. And to answer the question: hell no, I'm not embedding that shit on our site.

300 Trailer (Family Friendly Version): This is Delicious

Okay, I screwed up. I saw links to this before and went, "What? No." I've gotten wary since everybody sent me the Alanis "My Humps" video and I stupidly watched it and scarred myself for life.

Meth Coffee Celebrates Betty Ford's Birthday

Meth Coffee, which we've raved about before, has opened up The Betty Ford 5-Day Meth Coffee Sale, in honor of Betty's birthday on Sunday. Nice.

The savings? $2 off a bag. Which means the cost is $10 a bag. So if you've been waiting to stock up, do so now. The promo code is FIVEDAY990 when you check out. Tell them we sent you (because we've signed up to be a Meth Coffee affiliate--also nice) and they say to thank Betty. So make sure you do that, too.

Godspill: Art and Shirts From The Netherlands

ILoveYourTShirt posted a headsup about Godspill, which is based out of The Netherlands. They have an array of pretty badass shirts.

I am drawn to this one, however: "Mind Control." It's either Aquaman trying to call his aquatic friends to battle or Kenneth Branagh trying to send you telepathy via his nose. Which would be...telerhinopathy. Either way, I dig it.

Engadget and DRM: Rights vs. Things We Deserve

No DRM

So we're I'm a bit behind. Anyway, Boing Boing pointed us to this editorial over on Engadget, where they're taking Apple and EMI to task for not giving them everything they want right freaking now.

Go give it a read. I'm not going to say that I don't agree with a lot of what the author, Ryan, has to say. But here's what I found interesting. I was going to take him to task over what Cory at Boing Boing quoted:

But we don't believe having free, usable, uncrippled media is a feature -- it's a right.

It looks like somebody in the comments took Ryan to task on it already. But what was odd is that I didn't recall reading that particular quote in the article. Instead, I backed up, rooted around and found this:

But we don't believe having free, usable, uncrippled media is a feature -- it's what we deserve, and we demand it.

Huh. And then Ryan mentioned in the comments that he still thinks it's a right:

We believe cripple-free media is a right. Maybe not a constitutional-fight-to-the-death kind of right, but we believe it's a right nonethelesss. It's important to remember that Apple has a very real agenda here, and it's not always just about doing what consumers want.
