I honestly have ze-ro stakes in whether Wonder Woman ever gets a movie or not, but this whole “Studios don’t know what to DO with the character” conversation is baffling. Hey, lookit this, she is RIDING A HORSE INTO A MACHINE GUN NEST. Lookit how she’s doing a lasso thing - SHE’S GOING TO LASSO A NAZI OR A MACHINE GUN OR SOMETHING. What the fuck, you can’t DO anything with that? She’s Audie Murphy with tits, there, I wrote your movie for you. “Girls can do anything” she says at one point, her horse kicking a Nazi in the heart. Gimme one of those movie clapper things, I’ll get you started. “Action!”
Today I would like to pimp my Starship Victory series of stories. I just released the collected edition that contains the first eight stories and function together as a novel.
They are a strange and idiosyncratic approach to science fiction.There is exploration, strange new worlds, aliens, cyborgs, alcoholic androids and every individual episode tells a full story, so it ends up being very fast paced and delightfully insane.
Right now the first episode is up for free on Amazon. Please check it out. It should be a pretty good litmus test for whether or not you like my approach to scifi. And if you do the full novel edition is only three bucks.
Thus far Starship Victory has been my most successful personal self publishing venture, so with that in mind I would like to announce season two of the Starship Victory saga…
Starship Victory: Dark Side
The Victory can’t rest even after discovering the true secret history of the galaxy—because a distress signal chimes out from the Dark Side of the Galaxy. The Starship Victory must travel across vast stretches of space to face off against a bizarre echo of their home and battle shattered mirror images of themselves—the Warship Victory.
Can the Starship Victory bring light to an Evil Empire? Or will she and her crew succumb to her own dark desires?
Coming this fall…
I usually use this tumblr as a place to post my fan art, reblog cool or interesting art, or to pimp whatever I’ve got in the pipeline. This post is a little bit different. In general I’m an engine of hate and nothing is every good or weird enough to satisfy my bizarrity lust. There is a very small number of things which I love… Among them is Renaldo and the Loaf.
They’re an English band active mostly in the 80’s. They broke up when I was like four years old. Regardless, their anti-musical sound speaks to me, but for a band so very obscure (they produced like four albums for The Residents label Ralph Records and not a hell of a lot else) it’s been almost impossible to track down their music. I managed to get my hands on Songs for Swinging Larvae years ago, but they’re obscure enough that finding anything else is pretty much impossible.
Every year or so I check on Amazon if anybody has reissued their albums. I figured it was inevitable. The Residents seemed to be finally digitizing their catalog and as of like a year ago most of their old stuff is available on Amazon. But for years there hasn’t been any movement.
Finally, though, when I checked this week I found that some Eastern European company has been releasing their back catalog for a few months. They’ve released Struve and Sneff and Songs for Swinging Larvae (along with a bunch of bits and pieces of other material they’ve recorded). Mind you, this music isn’t for everybody. Hell, it’s probably not for anybody at all, but it’s some of the vanishingly rare music that speaks to my crumpled and mutated soul.
I’ve attached a video containing my favorite of their songs, a long lost favorite from taoc teh wodner doughhhj.ajgohag……hgthk, a dog who was very famous because he could use the internet.
Here’s a comic I made a little while ago. I considered not posting it here because it’s a little NSFW.
I had some of the American comics style issues! IN FACT: One of the first pricey back issues I ever bought was the San Diego exclusive Sailor Moon #1 that Tokyopop put out that was just a blank hot pink cover with the moon and star logo in gold. YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW HAPPY I WAS TO GET THAT (or, probably, you do.)
i got into sailor moon because when i was like 8 my grandparents gave me a sailor moon plush not knowing what it was then i saw sailor moon vhs tapes at the library and i just rented them every week and thats when my life got flipped turned upside down
then i joined online sailor moon oekaki boards and that was my first fandom there was no turning back for me
Meg have I told you the story of my favorite Sailor Moon fanfic.
It’s my favorite story about fandom, ever. I’ve told it before, it’s the best:
So I’m reading Sailor Moon fanfics, as you do in 1997 (actually to add another layer to it, I was reading a “MSTing,” which is fanfic for Mystery Science Theater 3000 where people would write the characters making jokes as they read someone else’s terrible fanfiction), and there’s this one that opens with this two-page author’s note about how they were going to use the REAL names of the characters, the JAPANESE names, not the ones from the shitty American dub, because the changes that DiC had made to the original Sailor Moon anime were atrocities that completely undermined Naoko Takeuchi’s original vision for the series. The very idea of saying “Raye” instead of “Rei” or, God forbid, “Serena” instead of “Usagi” was an affront to everything that Sailor Moon stood for, and was a blasphemy that insulted the creator and her intentions. It goes on like this, no joke, for EVER. Two pages.
Then the story starts, and it’s about Usagi using the transformation pen to grow a penis and have sex with her brother.
