The Spirit: Old News, and Not Good, Either. [Jul. 5th, 2009|01:55 pm]
[Current Mood |mischievousmischievous]

(WARNING! This post will have movie spoilers. If you're like me and haven't seen the movie yet, you might want to skip this. But, if you're also like me and you don't give a crap, read on.
ALSO: I only casually read mainstream comics. I am not an expert. There.)

The Spirit.



Look at this fantastic drawing of The Spirit kicking down a door. Look how beautiful Will Eisner drew. He was clearly a master in pen and ink and washes and perspective and body position and even how the folds of the clothes "feel" and the manner in which the door is getting smashed. Eisner clearly knew what he was doing.

So, why couldn't Hollyweird procure a director who ALSO knew what they were doing?

This subject is very, very old. The reason being that I absolutely refused to have any part in giving what I knew was a soul-stabbing adventure any of my bills. It wasn't until the Boyfriend managed to get a copy that, okay, at least I'll just be wasting my time, and not money.

Here are some things that struck me while watching:

Facing the other team + more Zine Fest [Jun. 29th, 2009|02:16 pm]
Just FYI to you all on Livejournal: I'm seriously considering switching to Blogger. I made an account here:

http://margoyle.blogspot.com/

I'm going to cross post for a while and see how it is, but I might very well just drop Livejournal. Please friend me (or whatever equivalent there is) on Blogger if you can!

Anyway, cross-post ahoy!

____________________

Howdy,

I felt like switching to Blogger. Let's see who wins!

I also wanted to do something that I almost never, ever do: I wanted to talk more about the ridiculously awesome swag (bought and traded) that I got from the NYC Zine Fest this weekend. I'm that inspired! Out of my own selfishness, I assumed the fest would mostly be comic-related stuff, but there was a ton of great literary work, and even photography. Rock on! My brain needs to be expanded!

(I am also eating half of a slightly-dry pita as I type this.)

NYC Zine Fest is a go. [Jun. 29th, 2009|09:14 am]
[Current Mood |chipperchipper]

I have to say: I had a great time at the Zine Fest. A really, really great time. The people I was sitting around were great, lots of good conversation, lots of awesome intellectual exchange, lots of AMAZING work, and good vibes! Not to mention that the PLACE DIDN'T GET TOO HOT. As I'm learning, this is key. As a result, I was able to stay coherent and alive for the entire two days, 7 hrs/day!

Also: I even won a book in the raffle! Yey!

So, thanks, Zine Fest! I hope you happen again next year!

(I should take pics sometime when I go to these places, but I always feel like such a dork snapping pics. I also have a crummy camera that eats up batteries.)

Magnum Opus [Jun. 27th, 2009|08:38 am]

Dear America,

I am tired of dealing with women's clothing that can't handle A) boobs, B) hips, or C) vagina. I am tired of having to devise very colorful methods to keep myself contained in such clothes, or to stop bras from showing, or straps from showing, or muffin top from showing, or camel toe from showing. If these clothes are for women, they should be able to deal with MY BOOBS, HIPS AND/OR VAGINA, AS I AM FEMALE.

America, maybe you should work on that.

Signed, me.

After this, I will surely have time to set Starfish up for online sales.

I... CAN... DO IT.... [Jun. 26th, 2009|07:46 pm]
[Current Mood |weirdweird]

This is me! I am going to get back into the swing of posting on LJ again! Now!
Frankly, I feel that my life has turned into one thing after another (not good or bad things, just... things) and it's kind of like walking. One foot, two foot, one foot, two foot, it gets kind of tedious for all parties involved if I take the time to explain exactly how one foot lands, and then the next one, over and over. But maybe this initial step of making a genuine attempt to let the world that, yes, my foot has landed will help me get over my tedium.

So, how will I make this post interesting?

LIKE THIS:



OH CRAP, IT'S THEY WERE 11!!!!!!
(Why have I been thinking of some anime from the 70s lately? Maybe because it was awesome, or I thought it was awesome in my feeble child brain. I wonder if it'd be difficult to rent somewhere...)

YES! THEY WERE 11!!!!



HERE THEY ALL ARE!!!!

New digs! [Jun. 3rd, 2009|05:33 pm]
[Current Mood |jubilantjubilant]

Hi, folks!
I have a new comic:



It is a 16-page, silent story. It also very much has a child-like bent to it.
I'm debuting it at MoCCAfest this weekend!
