    I haz sparkles in my eye

  9. Ace Deuce says:

    John Gruber is a Care Bear? Well-a-doggie!

  10. Nxxx says:

    Right. After four. One, two, three, four.

    Holy, Holy, Holy.
    Lord Moltz almighty etc.etc.

  11. Reverb says:

    That is the most terrifying thing I have ever seen.

  12. Josep says:

    i like better the old design. that using Copland UI icons and windows.

  13. Steve G. says:

    The first thought that popped into my head was a highly inappropriate comment (even for here), so I’ll just +1 to Reverb. I am unable to finish my breakfast.

    And the Macalope is not funny, so it’s best use might be as a fur coat.

  14. Bill Eccles says:


    It cannot be unseen…

  15. Trey says:

    This is magical.

  16. iMoo says:

    I’d comment, but then it will only have to await moderation.

  17. sleepy says:

    This is clearly Photoshopped. Gruber doesn’t smile in real life.

  18. Gupta Feldstein from Outsourceistan says:

    Gruber obviously has been beta testing the next version of Photo Booth! Pretty soon we’ll all be wearing such royal apparel.

    That, or Moltz has been digging into Ms. Gruber’s personal porn folder.

  19. Huh? says:

    I… it… um… the…

    How long does it take for the burning sensation to go away?

  20. blank says:

    Okay, point made: I have to quit dropping acid at work.

  21. Brother Mugga says:

    Hey! I was maintaining my Mac. How come you all got here so quick!

    Sod that: I’m off to bed.

    All Praise Moltz for His Beneficent Posting, however.

    Although is Moltz-Gruber-Balmer starting to look a bit like Alfred Molina?

    And, slightly more worryingly . . . what has that unicorn being doing back there? It looks a tad . . . shifty. And M-G-B a tad . . . sated.

  22. Nxxx says:

    MGBs weren’t that bad, providing you had the chrome bumpers and a V8.

  23. Brother Mugga says:

    And tan-cream two-tone driving gloves.

    And were over 6 foot, so you had to squidge in.


    Har har har har har har.

  24. Steve G. says:


    More like Alfred Molina using some of Chris Breen’s luxuriant hair products.

    And M-G-B might want to consider a restraining order against the artist. Or at least checking the locks on his/its windows and doors at home.

  25. Brother Mugga says:

    Yes, Steve, but the real question we all want answered about that luxuriant mop is: will it blend?

  26. Steve G. says:

    I’d pay to see that video.

  27. Nxxx says:

    The Venerable Moltz provides us with a Fine Art rendition of Himself and you just walk, or limp, away.


  28. Steve G. says:


    We’ve been mostly scared away. That sort of thing burns into your retina, making it nigh-impossible to forget.

  29. Brother Mugga says:

    Actually I burned it into my retina on purpose.

    Now, at night, people can see it when they shine a torch in my face. Scares the bejeepers out of ’em, so no muggings for me.

    Sort of a ‘CARS-eye’, rather than ‘cats-eye’.

  30. Nxxx says:

    I have received a cash offer from one of the Eastern Orthodox Churches for THE PORTRAIT to be placed behind the altar and to be called St Moltz the Martyr.

    It’s a good offer and will make a Happier Crimbo for me. Can anyone PhotoShop in some arrows and similar painful injuries, please?

  31. Brother Mugga says:

    I have received a cash offer from the Baby Jesus for THE PORTRAIT to be placed in Hell’s Fire where it will be destroyed for all eternity.

    His only comment was ‘My people have surely suffered enough…’

  32. Steve G. says:


    If you did that on purpose, the snow and cold weather have had a larger impact than I would have thought.

    I cringe at what your “figgy pudding” might include…

  33. Brother Mugga says:

    Well its ‘exotic’ filling is certainly very popular, Steve.

    In fact, guests are rather rudely refusing to leave till they get some.

    Which inclines me to squirting a little ‘extra something’ into their cup of good cheer also.

  34. Sue says:

    Great. John has time to do Macworld Pundit Showndown while we wait here for a new post. And he didn’t even win. Sigh.

  35. Brother Mugga says:

    That wasn’t John, Sue.

    That was merely one manifestation of the MGB entity.


    Is . . . is that *blasphemy*?

    Oh woe!

  36. Sue says:

    Well, you could be right. I only heard him. I didn’t see him.
