Lazy Blogging, Good Stuff Maynard Edition

Harlan Ellison is a ridiculously talented fuck of a genius and while on the one hand it would be cool to sit down with him and talk writing and science fiction and pop culture, I have to admit I don't think I'd have the stones to pull it off and still keep a sense of humor about it, so I'm glad there's someone like Jonathan Callan over at Comic Book Resources to do it. (Wow, that was a long sentence. Oh, and thanks to Brendoman at the Propeller Geeks group for propping the interview.)  Excerpt:

Ellison: I love comics, otherwise I
wouldn’t care so much, wouldn’t fulminate so passionately. (And I would
love for some of you punks out there to stop misusing the word “rant”
for every jeremiad, exposition, panegyric, gardyloo, plea and pleading,
expostulation, screed and/or sermon you’re too fucking slovenly stupid
and/or lazy to designate properly.) N.B.: this interview is not, repeat
not, a rant.

This is a long, two-part interview – Part one is here – but I swear it's worth it, and if it's not, well, um…here's a BSG intro spoof for your trouble:
