When the Hunger Games came out in theaters, there was an article in the school paper telling everyone that as good Christians they shouldn’t go support such a violent movie.

Although my favorite weird story from my college is back in the 80’s or 70’s, I can’t remember, a rock concert was happening downtown and the college had a lockdown trying to make sure students didn’t go and threatened them with expulsion and stuff and people STILL climbed out of windows and snuck off to it and I’m just…

That’s rock and roll.

It’s like you’re used to explaining a term like “Shipping” to an older person, but when you have to explain it to a couple of peers, knowing one is in the film/media business and you’re just… I’m not judging you, I’m just confused and amazed how you avoided knowing this bit of information for so long. It’s incredible. I can’t remember not knowing these rules of the internet and media. Which probably means I’ve been on the internet too much.

MARINES WE ARE LEAVING

Sorry, back in Da Nang there for a second.

Waiting on Hads to go get supper before nickel creek tonight and doodled some achievement hunter men on an envelope.

I brought Friday and Hazel with me to visit my parents and sisters for Easter + Both my sisters birthdays so we’re staying a week. They are overwhelmed and delighted about having WINDOWS that look out into forests and trees instead of a swimming pool and another row of apartments. I’m a little delighted myself.

Okay, just... Your username is perfect. I get that joke so hard. MARX BROTHER YEEAAAAHH!

Well here's an idea: pick up a goddamned and write one yourself. Be part of the solution instead of sitting around doing fuck all.

Dude, you realize I’ve written several books, right? Seven series, thousands of pages. Literally, multiple thousands of pages. Four of those series are in book form, as well as some in anthologies published by other people. Total, there are 13 graphic novels that I wrote and drew or contributed to, and that’s not counting single issue comics or illustrated prose stories or other sundry illustrations (I keep updating this section as I remember more of the things I’ve written. There are enough to lose track.) All about people who are not straight white dudes. I will be the first to admit my track record on characters of color could be way better, as well as trans and disabled characters, and a whole bunch of other types of people, and I’m working on it. I’m actively working on it. In the books that I am writing. And publishing.

I feel kind of silly pulling out the “don’t you know who I am?” thing but… you obviously don’t know who I am or what I do. And you look reeeeeeeeeeeeeally silly right now.

This is hilarious and ignorance in its finest form. Nevermind that “Why don’t you make it yourself” is one of the dumbest cop out counter arguments in the world, just… wow. 

Researching Iraq and Iran countrysides and landscapes and oh my God no one told me it was this beautiful

I never watched 500 Days of Summer because I genuinely thought “This is going to be some long ass romantic movie about hipsters isn’t it.” NOW I am much older and don’t use hipster as an insult as often, and a movie about deconstructing MPDG trope? I need to sit down and watch that eventually.
