  • Finished that Scientology article.
  • Encryption article in mainstream/non-geek media/talk!
  • Is Killer Coke marketing experimentation responsible for my interest in comics?
    • Dan Clowes, in Mother Jones:
      MJ: I have to ask about OK Soda—this short-lived early-'90s soda that you illustrated a can for.
      DC: I never saw it—it was gone in two months. It was fast. I didn't quite get that Coca-Cola was doing it; it was just this ad agency that contacted me. The way that face on the can was created, the original character I used was based on Charles Manson; the eyes on the guy are absolutely Charles Manson's eyes. I thought that would be a great thing to announce two years afterward. Now, there's like a whole cult devoted to OK; the cans are quite valuable.
