Moving out Jan. 6th, 2011 @ 12:42 pm
If anyone still reads this blog, I've moved. And changed. I've got a new blog, but it's not personal. Nothing about me in there. It's all about comics and Doctor Who. So if you don't care about either of those things, you probably won't be interested in my new blog. But if you are, it's called "Die, Hideous Creature... Die!", and you can find it at...


See you there! Maybe.

Comic redux, part ten Apr. 30th, 2009 @ 11:39 pm
It's back! Did you miss it? I know you did! Thanks to some kind words from sigma7, I've discovered renewed enthusiasm for my Apartment 3-G do-overs. If you want to see the first nine parts, click here! (This is a blog, so, you know, start at the bottom and work up.) And if you want to see the originals, click the dates.

This week - trouble for Luann! Profit for Doctor Joe! And conflict for Margo and Gabriella!

They"re full-sized now, so click for cartoon goodness...Collapse )

No, I've nothing to do with this show, but I know the writer, and he's great, and I know most of the cast, and they're great too. So if you're in New York, go see it. I'm going to.

Bi Bi Love Apr. 28th, 2009 @ 02:36 pm
I just read this op-ed piece on Yahoo News, in which the author states that he doesn't believe in bisexuality; that in his opinion, bi guys are just closeted gay guys. (He doesn't mention women, so I'm not sure what he thinks of them, if he thinks of them at all.)

This is a pretty common attitude in the gay community, and it bothers me. I'm not sure why - I don't know all that many self-identified bisexual men, and there certainly have been some whom I think were in denial. But I have known a small number who I honestly believe to be truly bisexual - whether they're a true "3" on the Kinsey scale, I don't know, but these are guys who are attracted enough to both sexes that neither "gay" nor "straight" accurately describe them.

I think what bothers me most about dismissing bi guys with, "Oh, he's really gay but won't admit it," is that it smacks of internalized homophobia to me. If a guy sleeps with both men and women, no one would ever say, "Oh, he's really straight but won't admit it", because being straight is still seen as the default. This guy sleeping with women isn't weird; him sleeping with men is weird, so that must be the part of him he's denying. I'm not ignoring societal pressure to be straight, but we're talking here about guys who are open enough to have sex with men, and open enough to admit it and identify as bisexual - so why wouldn't they be open enough to say they're gay?

Brian is made of... Feb. 19th, 2009 @ 04:19 pm
Here's a hugely popular internet meme that I just made up. It's essentially the same as the "(your name) likes" meme, but instead, I typed "Brian is made of" into Google. (Yes, I am bored at work.) Here's what came up...

1) Brian is made of bronze.
2) Standing about 7-inches tall, Brian is made of the finest materials and provides years of head bobbling fun!
3) Brian is made of lions.
4) Brian is made of chocolate.
5) Up to 30% of the eye and brian is made of these nutrients, which predominantly need to come from a dietary source.
6) Our Brian is made of stern stuff and it would take a bit more than that to dispose of him!!
7) I swear sometimes I think LSM's brian is made of stone.

Number two is completely true.


Brian likes. Jan. 14th, 2009 @ 03:34 pm
Rules: Go to Google and type in quotation marks, your name and then "likes to" (eg. "Sue likes to"). Type in the first ten things that come up and repost in your own note.

1. Brian likes to skip.
2. Brian likes to fiesta.
3. Brian likes to climb things.
4. Brian likes to pretend to fly.
5. Brian likes to make a mess.
6. Brian likes to do dishes.
7. Brian likes to fall down.
8. Brian likes to rock climb, but doesn't have a regular partner to keep him going.
9. Brian likes to spend time with our family, go to movies, host summer parties, BBQ, and light fireworks.
10. Brian likes to explore all of what Madison has to offer.

Mera Meets the Manta Men Nov. 13th, 2008 @ 12:16 am
Wow, it's been over two months since I posted. Lots has happened in my life, but rather than talk about all of that, I'm going to post another Hostess Fruit Pie ad. It's probably more interesting anyway.

Batman and the Captive Commissioner Sep. 8th, 2008 @ 11:12 pm
I was reading an old comic book - Batman Family issue number 3, cover dated February, 1976 - and I came across another one of those old Hostess ads (like I've posted about before). So here's a closer look at...
