Indistinguishable From Magic: 5 Essential... →
dresdencodak: Seeing as how I’ve done both the top ten for best and worst superhero costume redesigns, I feel obligated to put my money where my artistic mouth is and take a stab at fixing or updating some of these costumes. I’ve picked five here based on: It’s a particularly awful outfit that doesn’t fit… ARG THESE REDESIGNS ARE SO GOOD. SERIOUSLY SO GOOD. I really LOVE the...
The Bird and The Bat: Just breathe. →
thebirdandthebat: In my weekly column on Newsarama, Hey, That’s My Cape!, I talk about pretty much anything having to do with comics. This week I had to start my column with the words, “It’s a tough time to be a woman who likes superhero comics.” I’m fortunate to know a diverse group of people whose eyes are… Usually don’t reblog comics critique (since very little of it...
I don’t think it’s in my nature to relish victories. I have a very short refractory period of time between accomplishing something really great and feeling legitimately good about it, and realizing that there’s something bigger I want and I’m not there yet. It seems like the better I feel about something, the more dramatic the turn. I like to think it keeps me humble or...
“There’s a bad moon on the rise.” Right on the money.
Things slip through your head. Everything goes on longer and harder and more brilliant than you’d imagine. The world is louder than you’d ever know alone in your room. Not hating myself and life as much as I thought I’d be. I suppose I’ll be ok.
You think I’m dead but I said away On a Wave of Mutilation.
Despair came knocking and I let her in.– Daniel Johnston
I’ve been quote diligent about eating veg the last few days as part of a health kick I’m trying to get on. EXCEPT The cackling crones at work got pizza for the entire office. Both pizzas were loaded with meat. One was pepperoni and the biggest hunks of sausage I’ve ever seen, seemingly brutally torn by hand straight from haunches of the pig (this is why the terrorists hate...

Game of Thrones
OK, I’ll be honest with you people. Game of Thrones is disappointing. I was told, near universally, that it’s drop dead amazing. And it’s… OK, I guess. It just seems like LOTR with tits and blood and a whole bunch of doggy-style sex. Is that why it’s good? Is it the being on par with LOTR with a “mature” angle? Like, I get comparing something to Lord of...

“Hey, don’t you hate it when you’re trying to sleep and you’re paralyzed by a creeping dread at the impending failures that loom over you all the time? You know, the ones that creep into your heart and make it beat all spazzy and ice over your soul? WASUP WIT DAT???”
Why We Comic Book Fans are the Absolute WORST
I love comic books. More than that, I love SUPERHERO comics. You know, the arrested development stories where dudes in spandex beat the shit out of each other for 22 pages in an unending, pointless struggle with some bullshit or another. I honestly LOVE them. I’ll take Iron Man over fucking Blankets any day. There’s something invigorating about it. The violence, the high melodrama. ...

WHY WONT SONICBIDS DIE ALREADY
Seriously. Please die. Newsflash: IT’S FUCKING PAYOLA AND IT DOESN’T EVEN WORK FOR THE ARTIST. Every time I see a blog that says they accept submissions via sonicbids, I read it as they want me to pay them for the privilege of having an intern take a cursory listen to my music. Bite me.
Drunk on gin, emailing music blogs, watching documentary on Murder City Devils. Bad idea or GREATEST IDEA? Being a musician is strange.
