actually, you know how I was saying yesterday that I don't know what I love
Writing for Marvel Rebooted: If you’d like to write for Marvel Rebooted, what you need to do is submit a pitch (or a completed story) for our anthology series,
I just wanted to collect a few related data points here on the theme of David Cronenberg and Dilbert, the comic strip. Cronenberg has probably directed more impressive and awesome movies than any living English speaker. Let’s list a few of the standouts, of which there are many: Rabid, Scanners, The Dead Zone, Videodrome, The Fly, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, Crash, eXistenZ, A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, Cosmopolis, and Maps to the Stars. From there we pivot to Cronenberg’s interest in Dilbert—indeed, intense appreciation of Dilbert. The evidence is incontrovertible. First we have this item from the November 24, 2014 issue of New York Magazine. The heading reads “The Best Gift I Ever Got Was a….” Cronenberg’s answer went like this: “Every year, my kids get me a ‘Dilbert’ calendar. It’s extremely funny and sophisticated and accurate—very philosophical for a daily cartoon. I really need that calendar every year. It keeps me going.” In this recent interview with Scene Creek, Cronenberg mentioned Dilbert in a positive way. Deflecting criticisms that Maps of the Stars is an “attack” on Hollywood, Cronenberg insists that he did not think of it that way, then says, “…

Henry Rollins is the voice actor and basically visual reference for the villain in the third season of Korra and it’s blowing my mind
god this show was great
so Ikuhara has a new series out?
it's about lesbians and space bears?
I read the recap and my reaction was the same as to the first episode of Mawaru Penguindrum - "what the fuck" - but MP made me cry by the end so I'm expecting the same of this
"Yes, it’s about lesbians."
when he was interested in something and he’d thump his strong tail against the floor
when he’d walk up to us and then turn around pretending he wasn’t paying attention
when I’d be reading on the couch and I’d look down and he’d be sitting there under the coffee table near mama
when I’d run the paper shredder and he’d be scared but then come inspect it just in case
when we ran the coffee grinder in the middle of the day and he’d assume that meant he’d get Second Breakfasts
when I’d walk up behind him and fluff his ruff and he’d look up at me and squint happily
the way he’d drool when he purred
when he’d greet me at the door when I came home
how after finishing a meal he’d come sit on the carpet and wash his face
when he was happy and he’d snooze on his back with all four paws in the air
his smudgy face
his fluffy beard
his soft soft fur
how he’d sing outside the bedroom door in the morning
how he’d hop on the bed and make biscuits if he managed to get in
how he’d come over for headscratches when I put my shoes on
when he’d trot around the house with his favorite toy in his mouth, chirping
when the phone would ring and he’d chirp hello
when he’d dunk his head under the water fountain stream and then come up for pats
when he’d get so excited over a toy he’d throw it up in the air
how I always knew he’d be there when I got home
I have never liked Christmas and now it's even worse now that I associate it with my sweet little baby dying
Commentary: I just finished up the comic that eventually came 217 when I was suddenly inspired to draw this. This is my first attempt at a seasonal strip for depcom, and the first mention of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).
I think that if there were a Santa Claus, working in the dark for six months of the year would definitely get to me. And you’re pretty much forgotten after December 25th, and you still have four months in the dark to get through. And you still have to deal with the unrealistic expectations of all the children all around the world. This was kind of inspired by Raymond Brigg’s version of Father Christmas.
Anyways, please have a safe holiday season, and remember that you’re not alone. 2015 is just around the corner and let’s hope for a better new year for all.
