Dear Ontario school;

There is a lot wrong with this, and only a little bit right.

Using comics to get kids interested in reading is good.
Giving grade 7 boys Frank Miller to work with is not so good.
Giving girls midwifery instead of the goddamned Batman is frustrating and insulting on a number of levels.
Why do we need to give boys and girls different things to read at all?

Anyone want to take bets on Hollywood managing to make a movie out of Y: The Last Man and still have it fail the Bechdel test?

I'm having another of my "I want to read comics! But comics suck!" moods. Anyone have recommendations for comics starring women that aren't overwhelmingly cheesy or sexist, and yet still contain superheroes punching bad guys?

I am having an increasingly hard time not buying an iphone. Someone talk some sense into me! My blackberry is nice, but does not do the internetting I want it to.

We're sorting our books. All of them. We've separated the fiction from the non-fiction, and alphabetized the fiction by author, with the same to do for the non-ficton.

I've also come to the conclusion that, since I haven't bother to look through them more than once or twice in the past ten years, and haven't enjoyed them even then, that I want to get rid of my old comics. I have three bankers boxes full of comics form the 80s and 90s, not in good enough shape to be worth selling. I don't want to throw them out. Anyone want them?

I also have a stack of Mad magazines from the 60s and 70s (spoofing such films as the orginal willard and easy rider), if anyone's interested in those.

These guys make crazy clothes I could see myself wearing some of that stuff. Note to self - keep practising sewing and you, too, can make crazy clothes like this

Spiderman killed Mary Jane with his, uh, radioactive web fluid? Okay, then. I'll just... be over here. Watching Heroes. With my lead-lined underpants. (Link contains NSFW text)
