and with the hopes that at least one item in this post has put a smile on your faceHow about all of them?Poster: Cool.Cartoon link: Hilarious.Universal logos: Neat.Daily Show boo-boo: Awesome, never noticed.LOLKatniss: Memetastic."Hunger Games" video: Insanely good.Wolverine panel: Handsome and, yes, quizzical.Kate's "lesbian incest": ?!?!?.Doctored panel: LOLKitty.I'm really psyched for the Walking Dead finale tonight. The season has definitely been switching gears like someone who can't drive a stick, but I try to chalk up the fact that it's all over the place to its security in being a long-term serialized show. I can't say that the languorous moments and super-charged, adrenaline-rush scenes haven't both been powerful in their own ways — that's kind-of what life, especially life in war, is like — although I can't say that we haven't had some truly stupid shit go down as well.The "lesbian incest" thing with Kitty/Kate Pryde makes no sense. She's, like, psychically giving herself a kiss; that's neither lesbian nor incest. On the other hand, I do agree with Byrne that for older Kate to still exist at all after Sen. Kelly was saved does put a whole spin of futility on her actions.You're right too about that panel being really sharp and the figure looking nothing like Cockrum's work in terms of Wolverine's body proportions.Great stuff, Blam!
How about all of them?I'm happy to hear it, Arb.Doctored panel: LOLKitty.Y'know, I thought that maybe we had a new meme here, but of course a quick Googlin' turns up that Bully got there years ago. The comments are right, too. The "lesbian incest" thing with Kitty/Kate Pryde makes no sense. She's, like, psychically giving herself a kiss; that's neither lesbian nor incest.I almost included a comment from Sarah Ahiers on Teebore's post that pointed out that Kate was if anything engaging not in "lesbian incest" but "temporal masturbation"; then I decided that "lesbian incest" was going to get me enough weird search hits.
I rather like the new Universal logo (one of my favorite studio logs). Unlike, say, the new DC logo, it updates the look while staying true to the past. I really need to read Hunger Games one of these days. With the exception of Twilight, which I intentionally avoid like the plague, I'm usually pretty up on the current pop culture craze is, especially, having worked in a bookstore for fifteen years, when that craze is centered around a book, but somehow I managed to just completely miss the boat on this whole Hunger Games thing. You're reprinting of that panel from X-Men #147 reminded me of something I've noticed as part of my series but never had an occasion to mention: the way some panels almost seem to improve when excised from their placement on a page/in sequence. The panel you reprinted here completely missed my notice while reading the issue, but looking at here, it does stick out (and looks almost different than it did as part of the page), for all the reasons that you mention. I'm not quite sure what to make of that general observation, but it is kind of interesting to see how the same piece of art can work more or less effectively on its own merits or as but one but one piece a larger picture. Finally, I'll just say that "lesbian incest" and "temporal masturbation" are indeed great traffic-driving phrases. :)
That poster is great and that video is fantastic and that panel you rewrote is hilarious and I have too much other stuff to do.
Teebore: something I've noticed as part of my series but never had an occasion to mention I know what you mean. Now that I've finally got the X-Men material from this post republished on its own, I'll be replying to your comments there ASAP.
