I never watch the Academy Awards. After the nightmare of the Rob Lowe/Snow White debacle of 1989 I’ve been loathe to do so.
The next time I saw a show was at a company party in 1995 where I had to endure “Oprah, Uma, Oprah, Uma” ad infinitum. (Dave, it never got funny, it will never be funny.)
I did see it again around 2002, with a friend. Don’t remember who the host was but it definitely was not as annoying as the previous two shows I saw. But it wasn’t anything special. Always easier and much better to simply get the results from the newspaper our web the next morning.
At best it’s like going to a friend’s company holiday party. The conversations and awards may mean something to your friend but these aren’t your people or your business, so it’s just tedious.
But congratulations to the winners.
An illustrated story about critical thinking, inspired by Carl Sagan’s The Demon-Haunted World.
Very cute, and a wonderful way to introduce children to thinking critically.
And here’s an interview with Jocelyn Oudesluys, the adaptor: http://madartlab.com/2014/02/24/here-be-invisible-dragons/
I have a tilted uterus and during my last pregnancy, I lost 6 liters of blood. I almost died. I can’t have this baby. Why don’t they understand that?
Weeping client talking to me today. They tried to goad her companion into a fist fight so they could call the police and have him arrested, therefore she couldn’t have the procedure.
She was crying and screaming for them to leave her alone. They wouldn’t, and her companion got angry.
I told her that I have no idea why they can’t understand it. My guess is, that they don’t care about you or your partner, only the fetus that could kill you.
She was very upset, so I let her and her companion wait in my car. She thanked me and said “I’m glad you are here. He would have hit that guy if you all had not walked with us”.
She walked into the clinic tear free, but still with anti’s trailing behind her shouting. The escort presence gave her space and a buffer from the harassment.
That is why I escort. That is why I do it.
This is one reason why the buffer zone needs to be extended.
Less than 3 days left to back Kelly Thompson’s new novel, Storykiller. Great book and lots of great art, plus your chance to get extra goodies!
Artist Mimi Yoon produced this, um. variant cover for Powerpuff Girls #6.
And thankfully, it got pulled, because considering that this is an ALL-AGES comic and the PPGs are supposed to be seven-years-old (albeit aged up to teens here so they can be *sexy!*)
Anyways, the comic retailer who…
Also appreciated is the support from GtC over the Panosian episode. (That was a weird night of tweets…)

Here’s a briefer review for a Golden Age master.
I haven’t blogged much lately, but thought I’d share a couple of reviews I posted on Amazon.
