One problem with waiting to post all the week’s comic reading at once. I have no idea what to say about this Flintstones in a tweet.

I’ve decided–I can’t remember when, but sometime last week, I was going to do “Sunday Comix” on Comics Fondle. Not worth a graphic yet (since it’s the first week, etc), but just putting up all the comics posts on Sunday. Starting with Hadrian’s Wall #4, which came out at least two months ago and I hadn’t read yet.

A twitter thread talking about ableism and how “positive” messages from abled people read to disabled people. Thoughtful and rending by the finish.

We just watched Tunnel, which is my third South Korean film from 2016. It’s the best one I’ve seen so far, but it’s apparently not the strongest year. Tunnel did get a U.S. home video release though, which is awesome. here’s the post

I try to use Pixelmator as much as I can as opposed to Photoshop CS6. The CS6 license is a hand-me-down, the Pixelmator I bought, it’s updated (right?). But Pixelmator just doesn’t have a useful file system interface–not being able to “export” and close a file you’re working on is a pain. Photoshop is ugly and clunky, but it’s also got useful contextual labels.

Of my regular podcasts, “TMO Daily Observations” has stayed a regular, even through my Apple disenchant. This episode here is a great one. It’s more a news show–all the Mac Observer podcasts are–but there’s a lot of nice personality on this particular episode.

I’ve had two hits on the stupid Sheena post, maybe one more “syndicated,” though I never know what Wordpress means by syndicated. Do people actually use the Wordpress reader? Anyway. It’s incredible when you realize how little interest there is in that stupid movie. It was vaguely infamous for a year or two.

Once again, I’m doing really well with hits from Bolivia. Not sure why. If it keeps up though, new tagline might be “Big in Bolivia.”

A Nick Cave interview at “GQ.” Probably exceptionally depressing given his recent life events so I’m putting off reading it for a while.

I have a very long watch list I’ve been assembling of movies. Somewhat fatalistically since November. So I finally got around to watching Sheena again–for the first time since I was like 19. It’s really quite unforgivably bad. Post here

I got the great idea to write 800 words about my tortoise dying. So that’s an upbeat way to spend an hour. And this is for the blog I felt like I really wanted to keep going with. Like, for fun. Anyway–Green Beans

I’ve been gagging re: The New York Times for years now; their 9/11 coverage, their Iraq War II coverage, etc. Plus the movie reviews got terrible. They needed Janet Maslin or Elvis Mitchell. Anyway, now scientists are finally done as the Times wants to promote climate change denial for right-wing readership.

A thread from one of the creators of SafetyPinBox responding to some of the nonsensical crap they’ve gotten. Safety Pin Box is surviving a hostile landscape–and being a quickly devised (post-election), DIY subscription service; it deserves recognition, not shit.

New post on Summing Up. Going to a weekly schedule for that blog. Long form colloquial, but searching. That post here.

I’ve been having a hard time with the longer format stuff on The Stop Button, mostly because the John Carpenter piece is in four parts. My wordpress theme doesn’t allow me to do much, so I ended up just duplicating the posts as pages. For example.

New comic post on Alien: Dead Orbit by the awesome James Stokoe. He did Orc Stain, which was great. Dead Orbit’s fine for an Aliens comic but it’s all about the art. Stokoe’s the real deal in the Pope/Cooke/Baker tradition.

Cat owning observation. Do my cats who came from shelter/store (i.e. had previous owners) think I am weirder than my cat who I got as a feral kitten. You could totally crowdfund Strange Days tech if it were for cats. Cat owners… we spend money on lots of dumb stuff.

Brett Ranter and Michael De Luca producing a Madonna smear-biopic is as early eighties levels of Hollywood sleaze as one can get these days. It’ll probably end up going straight to Lifetime. Also: why didn’t Madonna just buy the script and shut it down.

Someone in Bolivia has looked at 354 posts on The Stop Button today, which is a little weird. Also weird is someone in Venezuela reading 226 posts. I really wish wordpress.com had better stats information because I’m real curious.
