Hello…kitty? My cartoon break this afternoon turned into a new shirt for my RedBubble store. Can you tell what I’m reading lately?
omg hello spider kitty jerusalem
Oh crap it finally happened. We can all go home now.
I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.
Warning. Contents under pressure.
"Newsflash: you are owed NOTHING. Not a thing. Not a goddamn thing. This fandom, that fandom, guess what? It doesn’t belong to you.
You don’t own it. You partake in it. It’s called community.
You want something to be your thing, make a club, build a tree-fort, and do us a favor. Don’t come down.”
I’m gonna be real frank: If I see that shirt on any dude, I’m not gonna hit said man. I will make damn sure that guy cries like a little baby that night, however, and that those tears stay virginal for quite some time.
"Yes it really is happening," El-P writes, as photo shows duo with Zack de la Rocha and Travis Barker
This reminds me of when Zach de la Rocha was supposed to do something with DJ Shadow but dropped out. But holy crap, this crew together? Bananas. Straight platanos all around.
@LandryQWalker: I don’t understand why people say comics are hostile to female fans with rad shirts like this for sale at Wondercon.
So there’s this t-shirt. I saw it on Jamie McKelvie/Kelly Sue DeConnick’sTwitter accounts this morning and it really bothered me. Mostly, I think it’s just the straw that broke the camel’s back for me since I’ve seen a lot of images/articles that have come out in regards to comics/fandom and females. But that t-shirt is just immature. This ComicsAlliance article on Fake Geek Guys is a good STFU for sexist assholes like the guy who (shittily) created the image above. Fandom in general gains abso-fucking-lutely nothing if we divide ourselves by racial or gender lines - full stop.
ComicAliiance editor Andy Khouri found his deviantArt page, by the way, and the image link. I suggest you drop Garlic-Demon a little comment - I already have.
"In The Beginning, There Was Nothing" - Clint Mansell
So I went to see Noah today. I enjoyed it for a lot of the same reasons I enjoyed The Fountain (although I like The Fountain a lot more). And once again, Clint Mansell fucking wrecks it on the score. Just powerful work the entire way through the movie
Once again I refer to this image:
Cien años de soledad is one of my favorite books from the magic realism style he created. While I don’t think it’s apparent, my writing DNA has a considerable amount of Gabo in it. Que descanses en paz.
Rod McKuen, from Listen to the Warm, 1967
Gabriel García Márquez, the Colombian novelist whose “One Hundred Years of Solitude” established him as a giant of 20th-century literature, died on Thursday at his home in Mexico City. He was 87.
His death was confirmed by Cristóbal Pera, his former editor at Random House.
Mr. García Márquez, who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982, wrote fiction rooted in a mythical Latin American landscape of his own creation, but his appeal was universal. His books were translated into dozens of languages. He was among a select roster of canonical writers — Dickens, Tolstoy and Hemingway among them — who were embraced both by critics and by a mass audience.
“Each new work of his is received by expectant critics and readers as an event of world importance,” the Swedish Academy of Letters said in awarding him the Nobel.
Cien años del soledad is one of my favs. I might re-read that again in honor of his passing.
When Stephen Colbert takes over CBS’ Late Show next year, he joins a grand tradition of innovative comedians hosting talk shows, a tradition that stretches back from Steve Allen and Ernie Kovacs through Johnny Carson and Colbert’s predecessor, David Letterman. But Colbert will also become part
“Hosting Late Show isn’t what made David Letterman a revered figure in comedy, and it won’t be for Colbert. Letterman became a legend by reinventing the form as the original host of NBC’s Late Night. ”
Yes, AV Club, but does that mean no one can do so again? I’d like to see an episode or two of Late Show with Stephen Colbert before I decide it’s just like every other show.
What PFT said. I’ve had friends talk to me about this, saying late night is dead, yadda yadda. I don’t watch talk shows on TV as much anymore, but I watch a lot of clips from Kimmel, Fallon, Conan, etc. With Jimmy Fallon in particular I really wasn’t a fan of him in the SNL days but I like him a lot now as a host now and I’m glad he has The Tonight Show. He’s had a lot of funny clips (Slow Jam the News, Lip Sync Battles, etc.) and I think that Colbert’s got miles of talent ahead of Fallon so only god knows what he’ll come up with on Late Show.
The best part about this scene is that he’s not even putting a look of rage on his face, but more of an annoyed “OK, that’s it” face. Such a great pilot, Freeman and Thornton were on motherfucking point.
We’re laughing at the future and we cry ‘bout the past
I’m holding on forever but how long will forever last

I love the cover to The New Danger. I’ve reserved it in my “Potential Comic Book Covers Ideas” portion of my mind.
This week’s Tumblr dump includes Lovecraft/Bible mashups, demigod genetics, samurai and body wall art, and ladies punching things.
Charlie Stross put together this odd combination of the King James Bible with some H.P. Lovecraft via some bootleg Markov Chain.I’m a big fan of putting original work though processes to make new stuff – I made this poem…
