Miracle Cure PSA: (Nearly) Every Issue of the Weekly World News is on Google Books!

Posted by Peter Hall - June 27th 2009 @ 9:36 am

Uhh.  Holyfuckingshit?

Thank you Google (and forgetomori for the link).  Thank you for creating multi-billion dollar warehouses full of data, currents of bits and bytes archiving the digital evolution of our species.  And thank you for your Google Books project, which extends the maternally protective arms of time around the antiquated(ing?) world of paper and ink.  Because when the saucers land in hundreds of years and sift through the cinder, if there is anything I want our species and our planet remembered for, it’s the Weekly World News.

If you’re ready (and pure enough in mind and spirit) to open the ark, clear your schedule and click on to the Weekly World News at Google Books.  I’m sorry, I just like typing that out.  Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.

Don’t be surprised to see an image from the only reliable source of journalism I know once a week on HND.  I suppose we’ll kick things off with the brave cricket slayer above who fatally (mis)underestimated the revenge gene present in all exoskeleton bearing soldiers.

    My mom never let me get WWN when we were at the grocery store when I was younger. Clearly she was just looking out for my best interests, but my best interests are now clearly within the realm of giant grasshoppers and bat boys.

    Whatever happened to John Landis’ Batboy movie?

    Hi, I really like your blog and hope that this interests you and your readers.

    I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein’s Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

    I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

    I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

    If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

    A Patchwork Of Flesh
    45 Silversea Drive
    Westcliff on Sea
    SS0 9XD
    United Kingdom

    Each card I receive will be uploaded at http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/ to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

    Glad to see that someone is finaly starting to give weekly world news credit for the great reporting they do. The story on California purchasing the jetpacks was great. Thank you CNN for having Neil McGinness on your show last night. See the footage at:
