I’m guessing “fuck around and find out. namaste.” is sending a mixed message, right?

RIP George Pérez, one of the greatest artists in the comic industry, and thanks for all the great stories.

Any countries willing to take in some depressed Americans that doesn’t suck in different ways? Bonus points for mild or no winters.

Take a moment to breathe and think “what would an adorable kitten do right now?”

My area has announced a tornado watch and this is the only way I can remember the difference between that and a warning

The CW, Arrowverse TV, queer erasure 

#TheCW has canceled #Batwoman and #LegendsOfTomorrow.

These have been two of the *queerest* shows on network TV. Gay and lesbian characters, bi and pan characters, ace characters ... Without it being the *defining* characteristic of any of them. And Batwoman definitely had the largest ensemble of queer WOC I've ever seen.

(We also lost #NiaNal--trans woman played by trans woman--with #Supergirl last year.)

Even without fanboying over LoT, this ain't right.

All I’m saying is when you’re the person people are looking at as you open a gateway to an astral plane so ambassadors from seventeen warring universal nationstates can parlay in this abstracted corner of reality, and as you turn to meet their gaze they suddenly wonder if they will be forced into docile servitude as host parties to the treaty, take a moment to consider that perhaps they haven’t finished their morning caffeinated beverage when you ask them how many butterflies still exist.

I had an epiphany this morning during my readings.

“It’s Terry,” said Terry. “‘Ere. That [story] you sent me. Are you doing anything with it?”
“Not really.”
“Well, I think I know what happens next. Do you want to sell it to me? Or write it together?”
“Write it together,” I said, because I was not stupid, and because that was the nearest I was ever going to get to Michaelangelo phoning to ask if I wanted to paint a ceiling with him.

I am a lover of stories; particularly those that are a little weird in some way. I grew up either with, or perhaps in, comic books. The short stories of and several books by were formative for me. Lately I’ve enjoyed stories from and more. Currently reading by and listening to the album C’mon by . Aloha!
