Sorry I Haven't Posted In A While: Internet Apologia

Sorry I Haven't Posted is an amusing collection of posts, curated by Cory Arcangel, in which bloggers apologize for neglecting their blogs. The excuses range from the disturbing: “Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I recently had a very, very, very, minor, very, very, very, mild heart attack.”

... to the bizarre: “Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while … I have been working on my Megan Fox sim.” (More of that one here.)

Sometimes, it's people coming up against the hard reality that lurks below the flashy veneer of blogging* -- “For a very long time, I wanted nothing more than to be a writer. This blog was one of the ways I tried to follow that. But simply put, I’m tired of slamming my head up against the wall and getting nowhere.”

Lots more pathetic fun on Cory's site.

* I'm kidding about both things.

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
