sick

This weekend, Maker Faire is going on. A friend's moving. I could wander to Berkeley with another friend. Hey, it's Free Comic Day.

But: I felt a head cold come on yesterday morning. It was odd, feeling myself growing markedly stupider. It got worse, around midnight. Somewhat improved later. Right now my sinuses are kind of ... revolting.

I'm torn between curling up in bed & getting some fresh air.

For now, have a good day, I'll live vicariously for now...

Belated Happy Thanksgiving.

I had a pleasant, restful Thanksgiving. I'm not quite ready to head back to work.

There's lots I was going to post, & I realized that it's largely comic related...

Non-comic first, though: friends with cable, do you have Ion? They apparently made Terry Pratchett's Hogfather into a movie. I'm curious.

Little Batman dressed up for Halloween

There's
Little Batman, a cute little crimefigher. There's more.

Here are dozens of never reprinted Kirby monster stories.

Mightygodking, the guy who posted the Civil War remixes, moved away from LJ. He reviewed the new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, a fairly dense book - here's an excerpt of the review:
I realize that Moore’s taste for literary tomfoolery is well-known at this point, but I thought the grown man on page 56 clearly buttfucking a stuffed bear and referred to both as “Christopher” and “Robin” was fairly over-the-top. Yes, Alan Moore, we know, Victorian children’s literature is rife with sexual innuendo, blah blah Freud blah blah blah, we got it, okay? Christ, wasn’t three hundred pages of a Dorothy/Alice/Wendy tantric threeway in Lost Girls enough already
... which made me laugh. And he's vastly improved the dialogue for the new Death of the New Gods comic.

Geekery

Some things:
  • Tuesday, Terry Pratchett's visiting Kepler's in Menlo Park. I think that's right by a Caltrain station. He's a British author who has been known to outsell entire genres. Aaaand he has a new book which I need to pick up.
  • Stephen Fry has a blog. He's sort of a British national treasure.
  • Something I can't talk about yet, dammit.
  • Arcade Fire was riotous. *waves at the other people who enjoyed it*
  • Now I need to go back to bed already. If I could have just turned on the Pratchett fan signal, I would have.

Air Guitar Nation

I watched Air Guitar Nation, about the worldwide Air Guitar Championships. My one-word review:
\m/
I'll be more than happy to watch the regionals later this month.
