Hi Todd,
 
I just tried to check out your website, but it seems to be down.  I've been a big fan yours since the dot-com blow-up (I worked in software consulting back in the day) and hope that you'll keep producing your awesome material!
 
Cheers,
Matt

Hey Todd,

There are two things I do everyday after work and before sleep, goto Oddtodd.com and goto theonion.com to catch up on some completely hilariously bogus news. Today I was watching a video on how "Kim Jong Il Announces Plan To Bring Moon To North Korea" and thought about how cool it'd be if you posted a daily/weekly video/article/story-thingy from The Onion. Maybe as something you add on the week ends? Who knows?! Just a thought.

Toddles,
Micah from Texas

Subject: 'Toxic waste' behind Somali piracy
Date: Mon, 13 Apr 2009 12:22:39 -0400

tOdd,
 
THIS from Al Jazeera.  HERE are more references.
 
Somali rationalism:
"The ransom demand is a means of "reacting to the toxic waste that has been continually dumped on the shores of our country for nearly 20 years", Januna Ali Jama, a spokesman for the pirates, based in the semi-autonomous region of Puntland, said."
 
But every kid knows that two wrongs don't make a right:
"While money is the primary objective of the hijackings, claims of the continued environmental destruction off Somalia's coast have been largely ignored by the regions's maritime authorities."
 
If the folks in Somali are so concerned about fighting waste dumping they should form a legitimate government and protest to the world ..... which is going to pay the price for this waste dumping sooner or later anyway.
 
Nice IFC Media Project - The Whole Truth About Them Pirates piece.

Went to your fun links of Darth Vader and cracked up to see a picture that I had taken of my son at a sci-fi con a few years ago on the site.
 
Too funny. I needed that smile this morning. Thanks for putting up that link.

Do you have a current email for Mr. Deng?  I dropped him a few lines a couple of  years ago when he had the 'chat on me' whatevery email but I've noticed he doesn't leave that on the end of his letters anymore.
 
In case you missed my post, Ginny sent me some Trader Joe's Tom Yum spicey cashews. You MUST buy these.  They look like hell. Like sticky grasshoppers covered in bits of leaves and hair, but they taste wicked. Thai lemongrass, lime leaf, pepper.....spicey, sweet, lemony, Thai, hot nuttiness.  Way good.
 
Face it tOdd, GOKEY'S GONNA WIN!

Dear Odd Todd,
 
I'm a big fan of your animations.  Love them!  Been an avid visitor for a few years now.
 
Just wondering, on your "Toons" page, why are there 2 sections for "April Fools"?  One is up towards the top and another is a few sections up from the bottom.
 
Thank you for your time!
 
Best Regards,
 
- Mike.

Todd,
I love your work with Robert Krulwich!  You guys make learning fun.  Seriously, you are both talented and do super cool work on your own, but the partnership is awesome.  I just wanted to know: do you guys hang out outside of work?  What do you guys do?  Drink some good beers (well he seems like a wine person) and just shoot the shit?  Keep putting out the toons!

your flour video is no longer on the featured toons link.  I'd love to show that one to someone but can't find the video anywhere! 

Can you tell me where to find it?

 
Thanks,
Steve

Date: Fri, 10 Apr 2009 08:46:17 -0400

Hi Todd. The new site is cool. I like it a lot. Keep watching tv, because the daily facts you learn are my favorite part of the site. Anyway, some friends and I are trying to build our own website for our football team. We are trying to use frontpage, but find it a little difficult to use. We are not very computer smart. Do you use frontpage? Can you recommend a site builder program that is a little easier to use, and, umm, free? We want the basic design to be like yours. We want pictures, polls that we can add weekly, and a blog at the end of each page so people can make comments about each topic. But we don't want weeze there..haha.
 
Thank you for any help that you can give.
 
I saw your poll asking what movie to see. Not having seen it yet, I heard Fast and Furious is pretty good. It is the true sequel to the first movie, with hijacking trucks and all. I am told if you like the first one, you'll love this one.
 
If you didn't see it yet, my wife rented "My best friends girlfriend" last night. Dane Cook is funny as hell in that movie, plus Kate Hudson is super, no, make that MEGA hot.
 
Thanks again
 
Brian

 I vote for tuesdays trials. Seriously. Tuesdays Trials would be
 great!
 
 Tell us about how annoyed you are with the prosecutor! Tell us how
 you got a public defender from hell! Tell us how the cops beat you
 down for a tiny tiny roach that you smoked 8 days ago!
 
 "DONT GET CAUGH DOIN ____________" could be the slogan!
 
 I have been through our justice system and does it fucking SUCK! I
 might need some group therapy.
