      Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone had a great time last night. Sadly, I did not. I have been fairly sick since right before Christmas, so I had to stay in. But I wish all of you all of the best in 2010, and I promise that 2010 will a be great year for SydLexia.com! At the very least, it will be a year filled with new content!

      Merry Christmas, everyone. I would also and warm winter greetings to people who celebrate other seasonal holidays which I do not. But personally, I’m all about Christmas. Well, that and Festivus.

      Yesterday, while reviewing my daily site logs, I discovered I was getting a lot of referral traffic from an article on Topless Robot. Upon further investigation, I noticed two things:

      1. The “traffic” was simply a hotlinked image in an article.
      2. The “article” in question was complete trash.

It seems that some loser named Caleb Goellner was too lazy to host his own images for his paid submission to Topless Robot, so he hotlinked to one of my pictures of the Mega Man antagonist Burst Man for an article entitled The 9 Most Suggestive Mega Man Boss Names Ever. The article was the most embarrassingly stupid and incoherent drivel that I have ever read in my entire life, and I felt personally insulted that my bandwith was being used to further its existence. So at 3:30 PM EST yesterday, I did something about it. Specifically, I used my htaccess skills to block Topless Robot’s use of the original Burst Man image and replace it with one with a SydLexia.com watermark on it. After several hours of that, I realized that Caleb hadn’t bothered to assign any size attributes to the image, which meant I could replace the original image with a giant image if I was so inclined. As it turned out, I was so inclined, so I forced out this image to Topless Robot:

As of the publication of this post, that image is still on the site. See it HERE.

It took me 107 days, but I have finally finished all those Pop Tarts that I bought back in July.

      As some of you may have noticed, portions of the website were hacked earlier. These portions have been fixed, and we are once again operating at full strength. I apologize greatly for any inconvenience this bullshit may have caused. I have ramped up site security to prevent fucking bullshit like this from ever happening again. Once again, I am sorry.

It was five years ago today that the site launched. I hereby pledge to keep it going for at least another five.

THE 100TH ARTICLE IS UP!

August 12, 2009 – 6:37 PM by Syd Lexia

      There is an ongoing discussion on the forums about bad webcomics, and it reminded me that I myself used to do one until I forget about it. But rather than revive my old webcomic, I’ve decided that SydLexia.com should host a completely new webcomic by a fresh new author. And so, I proudly introduce Luscious Zombie Super Tits. Enjoy!

      This week at my local supermarket, The small packages of Pop Tarts were on sale, 5 boxes for $5, and there was an internet coupon for an additional dollar off the purchase. So after four consecutive days of shopping, I am now the proud owner of 20 boxes of Pop Tarts. If I can limit myself to one packet per day, I have enough Pop Tarts to last me 80 days. But if I suddenly lose it and go on a Pop Tart binge, I am severely fucked; diabetes runs in my family.

RIP, Les Lye.
Les Lye, November 18, 1924 – July 21, 2009

      Les Lye, a man who I admire greatly, passed away yesterday. Les had a very long and accomplished career in radio and television, but he is best known to many audiences as the guy who played EVERY SINGLE ADULT MALE CHARACTER on You Can’t Do That On Television. He was a great entertainer, and from what I’ve read, a great human being. I wish I could have met him. He will be greatly missed.

      Unless you’ve been in a drug-induced stupor for the last few hours, you’ve almost certainly heard the shocking news: pop superstar Michael Jackson is dead. What you may not have heard is that the King of Pop is rumored to have died attempting to eat a box of expired Star Wars cookies, a stunt that I myself just recently survived. Unfortunately Michael’s body was not up to the task. Over the last several years, he has suffered from several stress-related illnesses that have left his body in a weakened state and ingesting the cookies proved to be too much for him. He went into cardiac arrest and died. And unlike me, Michael opted not keep to one of his siblings nearby to supervise the experiment and dial an ambulance in case things went south. By the time his collasped body was discovered, resuscitation proved impossible. And so we have fallen on very sad times; the world has lost one of its greatest entertainers. So now, let us take a few moments to think about Michael Jackson and to mourn him. And let us remember him not just as a talented singer, but also as a massive Sega fanboy. And let us do this by reading my 2005 review of the classic Moonwalker arcade game. It’s what Michael would have wanted.
 
 
Michael Jackson, 1958-2009. Rest In Peace.
