I spent the entirety of yesterday quickly throwing together a graphic design resume, portfolio, and cover letter. It’s the first graphic design position to which I’ve ever applied. I’m not really anticipating getting the job, but man, that was some good practice to go through.
Karissa and I have been watching a lot of The Mindy Project together and I cannot get enough of Ike Barinholtz’s character Morgan. This Home Alone reference just put me over the edge.
Those who aren’t into Green Lantern, skip past this.
Should I be offended by the Star Sapphires?
Like an all-girl squad of lanterns centered around the emotion of love, spearheaded by the Green Lantern’s main love interest. And their colour on the emotional spectrum is violet (or more like a purpley-pink), probably given to them because they’re girls. It’s at the end of the spectrum, implying that it’s more intense than the other emotions in the middle.
Why does the all-girl squad need to revolve around love? Why can’t it be hope or compassion or hate or greed? Are DC and Geoff Johns implying that the main strength of the woman is love? Why do they have to put women in a corner and throw all these stupid stereotypes at them?
Her symbol is a star resting above her crotch for chrissakes.
Put in the order for 100 buttons! Huzzah!
Keep your eyes peeled next week.
"You can’t just change the race of cultural icons like Captain America! It’s an important part of their identity and message!"
Jesus: Ah yes.
Jesus: Can’t imagine who would do that.
Jesus: What a shame.
I put a bunch of graphic novels on hold at the library and I’m getting so impatient for them to come in that I feel the need to complain about it online!
DW with white hair is pretty much a young Mrs. MacGrady.
Marvel Comics is making Thor a woman. From Time Magazine:
TIME: How do you think this will impact fans who have been with the male version of Thor for such a long time?
Jason Aaron, writer of the Thor series: If you’re a long-time Thor fan you know there’s kind of a tradition from time to time of somebody else picking up that hammer. Beta Ray Bill was a horse-faced alien guy who picked up the hammer. At one point Thor was a frog. So I think if we can accept Thor as a frog and a horse-faced alien, we should be able to accept a woman being able to pick up that hammer and wield it for a while, which surprisingly we’ve never really seen before.
I’ve never really bought and followed a comic before, but maybe I’ll do it with this one.
Comedy “Song” of the Week
As a kid, I loved listening to Weird Al. But there was also a certain Adam Sandler CD my friend and I would listen to on repeat in the basement, away from any parents. We really loved the skit all about farting, but now that I’m an adult, I can really appreciate this skit of joining a cult.(4 plays)
