The Late Late Edition
Hello Internet Stranger! And it's too late, baby, now it's too late.
I’m Sean McDevitt, and this is The Weekly Click. One of the delights of sending this email is hearing from you! Click reply and say, “Hi…”
Hey… this is late. I kind of almost didn’t do a newsletter this week. I wasn’t feeling it and then I decided to change everything and then I didn’t like that so I went back and did all this and here it is in your inbox shiny and new. Five AM? Five PM? I’ll try to be consistent.
Here is a button where you can subscribe to this newsletter if you have not previously done so. I do hope that you enjoy it.
There’s a bit more info at Comic Book Resources.
I can’t wait for everyone to meet Payback and the rest of the inhabitants of San Tiburon.
I liked this bit right here quite a bit.
I came to understand that the sacred space is the imagination itself, or rather the time spent inside the actual idea — the song you are composing, the story you are writing, or the picture you are painting. The sacred space, for the artist, is within the creative flow, at the crucial and fiery point of artistic intention, where time suddenly contracts and the work finds its power and its groove. My sacred space became the rolling fire of the imagination.
“… the rolling fire of the imagination” is such a good line.
The Onion Has Been Permanently Banned from Twitter
This is an elite level of satire from The Onion as first reported by Metafilter. I laughed and laughed…
Just hours ago, in a sudden, inexplicable, and chilling act of censorship, The Onion has been permanently banned from Twitter. Read all about it on their Twitter page. This is a dark day for journalism and sets a grim precedent for the freedom of expression in America. The truth perishes in the night.
It’s Been 11 Minutes Since The Onion Was Banned From Twitter. So Why Isn’t The Mainstream Media Covering This?

You might ask yourself: if they’ve really been banned, how are they tweeting about it constantly? I mean, aren’t those literally their tweets right there?
That’s just twitter brainwashing you, pal. The only way to get around The Onion’s Twitter ban is to go to their fucking website.
Slap bass with Synth Pedal
The very talented musician Charles Berthoud hooked up his bass guitar to a synth pedal and proceed to perform a very slap bass-forward heavy metal instrumental. The pedal gave a nice, intriguing electronic tone to the instrument’s normally rich, baritone sound.
And then I found Liquid Tension Experiment…
According to a recent release from NASA, a NASA doctor appeared as a hologram at the International Space Station for a telemedicine visit with an astronaut in Oct. 8, 2021. NASA called this experience a holoportation, combining hologram and transportation.
Dr. Josef Schmid and his crew were holoported to the ISS using the Microsoft Hololens Kinect camera and a personal computer with custom software Aexa, according to an April 8 release from NASA. Schmid had a virtual conversation with astronaut Thomas Pesquet as part of a 3D telemedicine visit.
"We'll use this for our private medical conferences, private psychiatric conferences, private family conferences and to bring VIPs onto the space station to visit with astronauts," Schmid said.
The technology allows users to interact with remote participants in 3D as if they were physically in the same space.
This feels very Star Wars-y to me.
Here are the articles I think you should read this week:
Until next time, I changed the time. I have that power. It’s actually pretty cool. Besides, the whole world is weird, awful, crazy, and random. And we like it that way.
