So, to say that my post from earlier this week has blown up would be a bit of an understatement, I think…

I’ve been blown away by the amount of support I’ve gotten from the comics community. This sort of thing (the condescension, rudeness, personal attacks, and rape threats)…

gimpnelly:

Last week I wrote this piece for Comic Book Resources about the new Teen Titans #1 cover. The point of the piece was hey, there’s a broad demographic DC *could* be hitting with this book but the cover is certainly not made for that potential demographic. Instead, it’s more of the same-old,…

On the one hand, I’m glad DH isn’t done with CLAMP yet, and digital releases aren’t a bad thing.  I’m not aware of any convenient or comfortable way to read comics on an e reader yet, but it’s nice to know CLAMP will be there when they do.

On the other hand, the only new title(s) being announced was Legal Drug/D&D, which ranks pretty far down on my list of favorite CLAMP titles  (pretty much the only thing lower is Suki).  I know Legal Drug was a lot of peoples’ favorites even before D&D, but to me it was nothing but a giant yaoi candy bar, empty of anything that could be called literary sustenance.  Still, I’ll be picking up both series as they come out.  Supporting an official release is just the excuse I need to finally read D&D.  Plus…

Shouldn’t they be releasing WISH too?  Even I’ve heard how they’re related.

this movie was way too heavy for its intended age group

it’s actually really perfect for all ages because when kids learn this stuff early in life it stays with them 

Except when I was that young I thought this movie was so boring to be honest.  It’s only when I went back and watched it when I was older that I could really appreciate it.

Sherlock Holmes Audio-book Megapost

So I just bought an eBook collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, including 4 novels and 56 short stories (in four collections) for a total of 60 stories (presumably the entirety of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s work with the character).  The eBook included an appendix with links to audio-book recordings to all of these, which, it turns out are public domain (courtesy of Librivox), and so I see no reason why I shouldn’t share.  Follow the links to download the audio-books.

In addition to offering the audio-books for download, there are also audio players with html embed code:

PERFECT COUPLE EVERYONE ELSE PALES IN COMPARISON TO YOU

sheisjustliketheweather asked: Hey have you watched the anime Tiger and Bunny? It's super good.

I haven’t actually.  I think when it was originally airing I wrote it off as something like a buddy cop movie… except anime.  And they are super heroes?  Like Iron man, but commercially sponsored and on a reality show?  Frankly, it didn’t look like my sort of thing when it came out, but I know it’s worth giving a shot from it’s popularity alone.  I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.  Currently I’m working through a giant robot itch by watching some Gundam/Macross that has been on my list far longer.  

Seriously, watching Turn A is years overdue.

For whatever reason, Star Trek: Insurrection is not on Netflix, and for a very long time I was unable to watch it as I continue to make my way through the franchise.  It’s a shame because, from the description, I think it had the potential to be the best movie (or at least the most appealing to me personally).

Basically, it didn’t live up to that potential in my opinion.  I don’t care to search for the right words to explain where it went wrong right now.  Maybe I will in the future.
