There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."

Having been to Talkeetna I can confirm that Stubbs is a great individual to get to know and an excellent mayor, we could use more in politics like Stubbs.

"Digestive biscuits" sound really unappealing.

Wait - anyone know what happened with the cicadas?  I never heard them this year.  Last time they were all over...

They were all in the Hudson Valley this year. :-P


As were their friends, the Cicada Killer Wasp. Those things are TERRIFYINGLY HUGE.

We were supposed to get the 17 year ones this summer.  I remember them last time - the noise was huge, and there were several in the neighborhood. 

Not a peep this year.  I suppose they could've migrated, or conditions were bad, but... well, it's weird to expect something that huge and then not have it come.

This Kickstarter is for a game that looks kind of like a zombie version of werewolves? Anyway I thought the artwork was awesome and maybe some of you might be interested in it. I'm pretty sure it'll get funded in about three days from now because the Bloggess just linked it.

I just introduced my younger brother to QC. He's more mature for his age than he seems, and I think the topics the comic explore would be good for him to experience. He's about 150 pages in so far.

Marvel vs. DC: The Dudebro Analogy

Quote
me: It's sad how progressive Marvel looks while standing next to DC. It's completely amazing.

Kara: which is kind of awful too because Marvel needs help too Marvel needs help DC needs to be in an institution? is that fair?

me: Marvel is a middle class, middle America white dude who's been pulled from his suburban all-white high school to go to college with a bunch of people who are different than him.

Kara: ooooh

me: He's that dick who goes to the women's studies class to 'meet chicks,' and calls everyone bro, and doesn't really GET why his Cinco De Mayo party is really, really kinda racist. But he talks to people who don't look exactly like him and when he's told that he's being a dick he mostly listens and sure he's still got Maxim covers up on his wall, but now he can talk to girls without trying to hit on them.

me: DC's the guy who went to the college of people JUST LIKE HIM and entered a frat and hangs out on /bchan and takes pictures of girls who are drunk and falling out of their shirts without their knowledge and text them to everyone he knows, even the girls who are kind of like, ugh.

Kara: this is really perfect

me: So Marvel has figured out that if he wants to get a date, or more importantly, a second date, he needs to start dealing with women and other people as human beings and he's not perfect and he's still gonna get dumped when he mutters a vaguely homophobic epithet at the waiter at a restaurant, but he's listening in classes and his roommate's cool and they become friends even though they're different races and eventually he ends up in a suite where half his roommates are women who explain that the "make me a sandwich" shirt is the reason he's NOT GETTING LAID. And he stops wearing that shirt, except when he's really drunk and stupid.

me: Meanwhile, DC is on facebook, telling boob jokes and then bitterly calling women bitches for not having sex with him and going back to hang out at the local high school football games despite the fact that it gets sadder every year, because everyone who used to like him has grown up and moved out and moved away and he's still there, still talking to teenagers, except he doesn't know the lingo and they're not interested in what he has to say.

Also some people made a pretty strong point that it wasn't so much the marriage between women that was not okay but that marriage at all for any of the characters in DC's reboot is not okay as they've retconned a few notable longterm relationships ie Supes/Lois Lane. Esp with the whole thing about how they do have openly gay characters (new 52 Alan Scott) but I'm not full on defending them DC does have issues.
