If Man is Five, If Man is Five, If Man is Five

Dave Ex Machina (nee Legomancer dot net) is six years old today! Wooo! Can you believe I’ve been grinding this stuff out for over half a decade? That might be sad.

Here’s some highlights from the last year of blogging.

Musical Zendo — A musical guessing game!

The American Movie-Going Public and Recommendations — Two one-act plays!

The Fall 2007 Collection — All the hottest new black t-shirts with white writing on them for the discerning geek.

Dust Bunnies — Review of a terrible, terrible comic.

Slander! Vile, Pernicious Slander! — Defending Beebo’s honor.

The Geek Phrasebook — Many different ways to say “While YOU are a raging fanboy, I simply enjoy some genre media.”

A Long Time Ago… — You can’t prove it didn’t happen this way.

Doctor Who Holiday Special Liveblogging! — Or…not.

The Fastest Man in the Tri-County Area (Possibly) — I don’t know…is this more funny or less funny not that ‘The Dark Knight’ is out?

WOOP! WOOP! SECURITY BREACH! WOOP! WOOP! — After this I was invited to give talks at schools lecturing kids on safe building.

Grant Morrison vs the Silver Age: Who’s Nuttier? — an example of the typical post I put a lot of thought into that gets no response at all.

Dear DC Comics I Have a Awesome Comics Idea For You — Seriously guys we can make this work I know.

Assault on the Necromancer’s Tower — In which I make me a big ol’ Lego diorama.

Guest Blogger Idol! — A competition, and then Anne fills in while we head to Spain!

“When Fascism Comes to America it Will be Wrapped in White Plastic Armor and Carrying a BlasTech E-11 Blaster Rifle” — Sinclair Lucas — In which the Empire strikes back, and I get the most comments on a post ever.

Some images from the year:

And finally, another remembrance to Topher, who passed away during this time and who has some comments on the above. You’ll be missed, man.

    Your blog KNEW you wouldn’t forget your anniversary!

    It’s the “iron” and “candy” one, by the way. Guess which of the two your blog wants!

    Congratulations on SIX YEARS of the funny and the witty, the sweet and the snide. Keep it coming.

  14. Happy blog-iversary, Dave. Unlike most others, people actually read your blog (past the usual yourself and *maybe* one or two readers the rest of us typically get). Any stats on the most prolific poster?
