With This Library Cake, You Can Literally Eat Yourself Some Knowledge

With This Library Cake, You Can Literally Eat Yourself Some Knowledge

Once again, we find a cake that I love too much to eat. On the other hand, does eating cake versions of books make you smarter? Because that sounds like a learning avenue that we should be exploring.

Pure Joy: Watch Guardians of the Galaxy Actors Reenact the Groot Dance

by Rob Bricken

I defy you to watch Guardians of the Galaxy's Dave Batista (Drax the Destroyer) and Michael Rooker (Yondu) perform the movie's beloved post-credits scene — with Michael Rooker in a metal tub as Baby Groot — at Wizard World Chicago last weekend and not smile. It's simply not possible.

Hark, A Vagrant: Ida B Wells




buy this print!

Ida! If she's not your hero, she should be. She's mine.

I gave an interview for the Appendix Journal, and cited her as a figure I'd like to make a comic about, but found it a hard thing, so that it never happened. The reason is easy - if you read about the things Ida Wells fought against, you won't laugh. You'll cry, I guarantee. And I thought, well I can't touch that woman with my dumb internet jokes, she's serious business. And she is.

But then, people use my comics as a launching device to learn history, and I would hope that part of what I do is to celebrate history, not just poke fun at the easy targets.

Anyway, I first saw a picture of Ida B. Wells at the Chicago History Museum. She was protesting the lack of African American representation at the Chicago World's Fair. And I am not sure what it was, but the image stuck with me. You could feel a power in the presence of the lady with the pamphlets. I found out later that she was also handing out information on the terrible truths of lynching in America, a crusade that she is best known for, and rightly so. Her writing on the topic is readily available on the internet, and if you read it, well you'll spend a good deal of time wondering at the terribleness of humanity, but you'll also note that she knew how to handle a volatile topic like that with an audience who didn't want to hear it. But, Ida fought against injustice wherever she saw it. You'll be happy to know, that at the 1913 Suffragist Parade in Washington, she was told to go to the back, but joined in the middle anyway.

I'll leave you with this, a review of Paula J. Giddings' Ida: A Sword Among Lions, from the Washington Post. Go forth, marvel at this woman, who was the best. Did I mention she was one of the first women in the country to keep her name when she married? A founding member of the NAACP? Ida! Just pioneer everything.

Lots of Little Girls Say They Want to Be Princesses; This Dad Took Action

Jeremiah Heaton's 7-year-old daughter Emily expressed interest in being a real princess. While most dads would explain how the world actually works, Heaton found 800 square miles of disputed land in Africa, planted a flag, and "claimed" it. Emily now wears a crown and is called "Princess Emily".
