Her Morning Elegance video

This was sent to me, and I thought I'd post it here because it was such an interesting video to watch. I also imagine the woman in the video rarely gets a good night's sleep if she does this every night!

Time for a little catch-up

Okay, folks - time to get caught up here.

First, sorry that last week's posts were so sparse, but like I said, it was a crazy week. I fully intended to post stuff, but I just couldn't get around to it, and before I knew it, it was Friday! LOL

Anyway, I hope you all had a great Christmas. Let me rattle off a few things to get myself all situated here.

First, Yule-aphobia was not as bad this year, and I actually heard more retailers and cashiers tell me "Merry Christmas" rather than "Happy Holidays", so that's good news. There were a few cashiers that I had to repeat "Merry Christmas" before they would respond in kind, and only once did I had to say "Merry Christmas" twice before the cashier caught on to what I was doing and then responded in kind. I also saw more signage at various retailers using the right phrase instead of the generic Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings. Quick rule here: If someone is wishing you Merry Christmas, then it's pretty safe to wish them back in the same way.

The way that this holiday has gotten all PC is ridiculous, and there have still been problems with civil authorities (city, state, and even some federal, I believe) allowing Christmas symbols on public property. I will have to comment on this more, because they try to take this from an angle of "crossing the line between church and state by promoting a religion", but that's simply not the case. This will be a topic for another time, though. :-)

Next, among the gifts I got for Christmas was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and the new Star Trek movie. I've already seen the Transformers movie and I'll be giving my review of it later this week. I still need to get around to watching Star Trek.

A couple of you and one person I know in real life asked about my rant of baby boomers in a recent blog entry, and wanted to know the basis of my rant. This is the only indicator that I'll give of my age: I'm a child of baby boomer parents, so I've seen firsthand of some of the goofy logic that that generation seems to be infected with. Don't get me wrong; I love my parents and I don't hate baby boomers, but like many children, I took views opposite of my parents as a way of rebelling against them, and in this instance of course, I adopted conservative views as a way of rebelling against my very liberal parents.

Even though I came into conservatism as an act of rebellion, I still view it as the right way to go in life, which is why I have held onto my conservative views even though the desire to rebel against them has long died. It still annoys my parents, though. Well, I now hope they'll see things my way one day. So even though I may have come into the truth with less-than-noble intents, I still came across the truth, and there's no reason to let go, now or ever. More to come on this as well, although I will avoid discussing what is private family matters and stick to what is most likely common experiences of those among my generation.

Such fun awaits us, my friends! I can't wait!

Those are some ugly-ass outfits

Below is a pic of Lady Gaga in concert with some other dancers. Man, those are some strange and ugly-ass outfits they're wearing. Note especially those mirrored cups of the bra! Damn! I wanted to find some other word to describe how hideous those outfits were, but "ugly-ass" seemed to work best.

A very Merry Christmas to you all.

Hey, gang.

Sorry I couldn't get to my blog very much this week, but as I imagine it must have been for you, it's been a crazy week for me. Still, I have stuff "on the plate" that I want to post, but I'll save for next week, because I don't want to rush through it.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and I hope you enjoy your day today.

Santa hat pics!

Two pics of me in a Santa hat! What do you think? I will prod the boss to make more, and for him to make his own Santa hat pic! Also, be sure to send me your own Santa hat pics to my Facebook group for this! If I get enough of these, I'll see what I can do to make a photo-mosaic!

Mark Sanford, Tiger Woods - what's wrong with these morons?

Over the weekend I was asked to comment on my views of married men and their infidelity. I told them that I was against infidelity. ;-)

They are, of course, referring to the recent news stories of Gov. Mark Sanford and of the pro golfer Tiger Woods. I could also throw into this mix LA Lakers player Kobe Bryant. As for Sanford, that guy is an idiot, and the good citizens of that state should have had him thrown out of a moving train. To say that the woman in South America was his "soul mate" made me gag. Geez! What a thoughtless, insensitive clod to say something like that and not refer to his wife! I wanted to smack him silly with hockey stick, but I didn't want to mess up a good hockey stick.

As for Tiger - sheesh! Just like Kobe, Tiger has a hot chick for a wife, so there was no reason for him to be fooling around. If I were her, I would have wielded TWO clubs to double her chances of hitting the bastard!

The question asked of me was actually more specific, asking about why men fool around. I think the more pertinent question is why the women they fool around with fool around with them in the instance that they know that this dude is already married. "It takes two to tango" and all that.

Let's hit this from the angle of the dude first. It seems to me that this unfaithful dude should have dealt with his sexual control issues before he got married. If he wants to hop beds with different women every night, then he should do that when he isn't already married to someone else. Before I continue, understand that I am in no way encouraging you dudes to engage in pre-marital promiscuity - I discourage that actually, for many different reasons. I'm just thinking out loud here, so just follow along and don't stick words in my mouth.

What I AM saying is this: You dudes need to work out your sexual control issues BEFORE getting married. Betraying one's marital vows is a terrible thing to do, whether it's the wife or husband doing the betraying. And it's called "betraying" for a reason - you were asked to be faithful to your spouse; that's why they are called vows! Control of your sexual urges is one of the things you work on when you are growing up. Theoretically, by the time you are getting married, you should have your sexual control issues resolved by taking a spouse, and not by taking multiple partners AFTER taking a spouse.

It's also an important lesson for us all on knowing and understanding what marriage is supposed to be about. Our society in recent decades has taken on an attitude of marriage being just for sex, and when the sex gets boring, you divorce and find another partner until you get bored with that partner - and then another, and another and another until such time that you arrive at an understanding in which you either find the spouse you'll spend what remaining years of your life with, or you get to the point that you say "Marriage is too confining. I should just keep my options open".

By the way, grats to the baby boomers for helping bring such kookoo ideas of marriage, and for making multiple marriages and divorces and endless supplies of half-siblings and step-siblings the norm, and for introducing such ideas as "no-fault" divorce in which the guilty spouse gets away with their betrayal, and could even possibly end up getting everything, and for their famous toxic custody battles, and all the fun and joy your brought to your kids as a result.

For a generation famous for "self gratification" and "instant gratification", I sure hope you got what you wanted, because you sure pissed on the rest of us, and you will continue to piss on the rest of us with all the debt you passed on to your kids and grandkids. I just hope it was all worth the crap you dumped on the rest of us to solve. But that would mean feeling guilty for what you have done, and as we all know, you just can't have that. Hell, take that up with your therapist - I don't give a damn.

Boy, did I digress! LOL Back to the topic!

Let's discuss the ladies for whom the philandering men take up with. Now here I'm not so much referring to the women for whom they didn't know that their love interest was married, but rather to those who DO know that their love interest is married, and get involved with the two-timer anyway.

So why would a woman do such a thing? Reasons are varied as the women themselves, but largely they fall into a few reasons: 1.) They think they are in love and really believe that "their" man loves them back, and she just has to wait out until he divorces his wife so that they can be together forever, 2.) They are starstruck that a Tiger Woods or a Mark Sanford would lavish their attention on them, or 3.) They're out to hit the "bedsheet lotto", either by threatening to tell all to the wife, or by intentionally becoming pregnant so as to "trap" the clueless dude into supporting her and her child (think of amazingly and even startlingly naive Dirk Nowitzki). Let's tackle these in order.

1.) Such women are usually "in love with being in love", and love can make you do stupid things. But a little - not even a smidgen - of common sense should tell you that if he can fool around on his wife, what's to stop him from doing the same to you once he divorces his wife and marries you? After all, how do you know that his current wife is his first wife? A philanderer who can philander once will most assuredly do so again. It's as certain as the sun rising tomorrow.

2.) Being starstruck is no excuse for fooling around with a married man. Are there such male celebrities that I would consider fooling around with should they look my way. No, and I mean that. I would hate the attention that comes with being known as "Mr. X's lover". Some women do indeed desire the attention that comes from being noticed by a male celebrity, but their reputation takes a beating. Think of Monica Lewinski. Any of you have favorable impressions of her? I think not.

3.) And then there are the women out to score a quick and easy buck by blackmail or by pregnancy. I liken these women to whores, because that's exactly what they are doing: Selling themselves for money. Why would they debase themselves in such a way? The reasons vary, of course, but like those who want to win the "lawsuit lotto", they want a lot of fast and easy money. As you might imagine, I have zero respect for such women. Thanks for setting back women's progess 100 years, ladies!

We as a gender will continue to retard, stop, and even reverse our progress in recent decades if we can't respect ourselves, and part of respecting ourselves is to not get involved with a man whom we know is married. There ARE no good excuses for fooling around men who would cheat on their wives - and worse, women who get involved with such men are as guilty as the men. There is no love involved with a spouse cheats, no matter what the guilty parties may think - plain and simply, it's just people using each other for their own selfish needs, and someone ALWAYS gets hurt as a result. Funny that that thought never occurs to the guilty parties.

Movie review of Monsters vs. Aliens

My apologies, but for some reason I thought that I had already posted my review of Monsters vs. Aliens! But when one of my GFs asked where it was, I told her that it was on my blog, and she told me, "No, it's not." To my horror, I saw that she was right! So without further ado, here is my review:

---------------------------------

The movie, Monsters vs. Aliens, was a very enjoyable movie. In it, the monsters are much like the mutants in the Marvel Comics universe, a misunderstood minority with special abilities and powers. But rather than be led by a Dr. Charles Xavier, the monsters are instead incarcerated by the government because the feds think that, as the prison's warden notes rather wryly, "the people have more important things to worry about, like paying taxes". That was probably my favorite line from the movie, because it is more true in regards to the government's attitudes towards us than that moment in the movie implies. :-)

Before I continue, let me add this disclaimer:

****SPOILER ALERT!****

The review below contains spoilers, so if you haven't seen the movie and don't want what's in it to be revealed to you, STOP READING NOW!!! You have been warned!

****SPOILER ALERT!****

The movie mostly centered on a young woman named Susan who becomes a 50 ft woman after being struck by a meteorite. During the time of her incarceration and into her first battle with the invading aliens, all she wants is to get back to her old life and to be with Derek, the man she was about to marry until she grew into a giant. There are a lot of pop culture references from the monster movies of the 1950s, so pay attention and see how many you can spot!

My friends, the thing is, I really wanted to enjoy this movie - but one thing kept coming up that was rather annoying, and it was this movie's insistence on making everyone stupid. The president was an incompetent idiot along with his crisis staff, and the movie's villain was also a stupid idiot. And two of the monsters, Insectasaurus and B.O.B., were also stupid. It's like the movie was a celebration of stupidity! When did Forrest Gump become a standard to strive for?

And it's not so much the fact that the movie had so many stupid people in it, it's mainly the fact that the movie leaned so heavily on "stupid" jokes. To me, the overabundance of "stupid" jokes was a cop-out from making other, more thought-provoking humor; especially considering that this genre was fodder for more and better humor. And the story was a tad predictable - what else was Susan going to do other than come to her senses and see Derek for the jerk that he is?

Despite my negativity above, I did enjoy the movie, and some of the humor was indeed such that I laughed. I just feel that they easily could have made the story even better. The artwork was awesome, especially the fight scenes. In a scale in which 1 is a bomb and 10 is THE bomb, I give Monsters vs. Aliens an 8. The great art kept me from giving it a 7.5. It is definitely worth seeing at least one time.

"Blackest Night" crossovers I'd like to see

In DC Comics right now the "Blackest Night" storyline is going on, and it's been pretty interesting. However, I'd like to see some of these black lantern rings cross over to other areas. And any of you artists, feel free to illustrate any of my ideas listed below, and I'll post them here!

* Dora the Explorer
* Sesame Street
* Spongebob Squarepants
* Archie Comics
* My Little Pony
* Hello Kitty
* Disney characters
* Looney Tunes characters
* Barney the Dinosaur

If I think of any others, I'll post them here, or feel free to think of your own ideas! Let's have fun with this!

So how much of a comics fangirl am I?

I didn't intend to do another Q&A so soon, but I thought I'd go ahead and answer this question that came by e-mail: How much of a comics fangirl am I?

I am enough of a comics fangirl that I visit the comic shop on Wednesdays, and I almost always buy SOMEthing. Rare is it that a given Wednesday will go by that no comic interests me - perhaps three weeks out of the regular 52 week year, if that. And most of the time, I buy at least two, usually three, and more often than not I buy 4 or more.

Currently most of the comics I buy are DC. If I had to put a percentage of which comics company I buy in a given year, a rough estimate would be about 60% DC, 39% Marvel, and 1% other/independent. Only in recent years have I kept the comics that I intend to keep in one of those long cardboard comics boxes, and I have five such boxes right now.

So how about the rest of you? What are your comic buying habits?

My mission for December: To fight Yulephobia

So what is Yulephobia? (pronounced "yool-uh-foe-bee-uh")

It's the irrational fear of many retailers, news media, and most of your run-of-the-mill liberals to say the word "Christmas", even during the Christmas season. They fear saying it, because they don't want to offend non-Christians, even though nearly all non-Christians know that the vast majority of U.S. citizens are Christian. Subconsciously, sufferers of Yulephobia also fear that they might themselves become Christian if they utter the word "Christmas". For that crowd, being a Christian is the antithesis of being "open-minded, tolerant, enlightened and intellectual", and they just can't have that, dontchaknow.

In other words, it's yet another example of PC crap run amok. According to the PC crowd, Americans are a hypersensitive population just waiting for something to be offended by - and it's even become a regular source of income for various lawyers who specialize in these types of "outrage" lawsuits. For some reason, the world will go to hell in a handbasket if we were to ever to utter the word "Christmas" publicly, which is why we have instead "Happy Holidays", or "Season's Greetings" (by the way, I never understood that. Why are we greeting seasons?), or "Winter Festival" or "Sparkle Season" and other such bland crap all in the name of being inoffensive.

But you know what? I'm offended by this push to push out all things Christmas. Does my being offended count among that PC crowd? Of course not. The most I'll get is "I'm sorry you're offended, but..." blahblahblah and other such blathering nonsense as to why we can't say Christmas publicly. So I say - the hell with that; I'm fighting back!

For the rest of this month, I will be on patrol for any and all examples of Christmas PC nuttiness, and I'll post it here just so that you all can see how insane some of this gets. It's my goal to help the sufferers of Yulephobia to get over their phobia and to join in with the rest of us. I'm not saying that they should convert to Christianity - this is not about proselytizing - but instead to have the correct understand of the true meaning of Christmas. So in the coming weeks, watch for my Yulephobia Alerts, and feel free to forward any examples that you also come across in news reports, retail advertising, and anywhere else you might see it.

Imagine if the producers of the movie A Dog Named Christmas had caved in to the PC nuts and renamed it "A Dog Named Holiday". See how stupid that sounds? The title also loses all of its meaning related to what the movie is about. This is why I am going to fight this fight.

By the way, I had a great Thanksgiving, and I hope you did, too. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Hello! I apologize for not having my review of Monsters vs. Aliens up this week, but my friends, I have been that busy getting ready for turkey day! However, I did want to take a moment to express my gratitude to all of you who read my blog and especially for those of you who respond to what I've said here, both by e-mail and in person. Whether you agreed or disagreed with what I've said, I still inspired you to respond, and that's all any writer can ask. After all, the last thing any writer wants is to be boring!

I also want to extend a "thank you" to my boss, John, who encouraged me to start this blog and who has also been my editor, my idea man, and even my drill sergeant during the time that I've written this blog, which has gone on for about 18 months now. He once told me that the two year point is where we will see how things will be going from here on in. If, after two years, I still find the desire, the motivation, and the topics to keep on blogging, then I'm doing pretty good. After two years is also when you start getting noticed by others, because by then you've developed a style to your writing that your readers will identify you with. For me, it seems to have been my conservatism.

Time will tell if my readership will eventually go "viral"; and to be honest, I don't know what I would do if I become some sort of national phenom. The odds are against it anyway, so there really isn't anything to worry about. For one, I'm conservative, and no national new source is going to give "press" or "air time" to a conservative. Hell, look how they treat Sarah Palin! And for another, I am one blog among literally millions, so I would have to be that good in order to be something that goes "viral". And anyway, I write because I like it, not because I have any plans or desires to be a "viral" sensation. If it happens, then I'll deal with it. If not, then at least I tried this idea out. Either way, I'm good. By the way, the two year mark is March 2010.

So anyway, a Happy Thanksgiving to you all! Be grateful for all your blessings, as I am for the many blessings I have, including you, my readers. May God guide you in all that you do.

Take care and see you next week!

Coming next week...

Okay kiddies, another week has come and gone.

For next week, I will have my review of Monsters vs. Aliens, and that will probably be the only post I do for the week, since Thanksgiving is Thursday (you knew that, right?) and I have a LOT of stuff to get done before then.

If I post a second time next week, it will probably be Friday, but odds are against it. Know why? Friday is International Shopping Day! LOL So I will be hitting the stores Friday, mainly to buy some new Christmas decorations, since I threw out a lot of old ones last year. And when I get home, I'll be putting up the decorations. So as you can see, even Friday will be busy for me. :-)

Catch you next week!

My daily dialogues in real life

I got the response below from someone named Joseph in regards to my previous blog entry on being both pro-life and pro-death penalty. I was going to respond to Joseph in the commentary section of that post, but my response got a little long, so I thought I would just put it here instead. It will also give you all a little insight into my goings-on in real life. :-)

Here's Joseph's response:

Hi. I read your blog post on your explanation on you being pro-life and pro-death penalty. I have a question to ask you. In your daily life, have you been having conversations with people that disagree with you, and you feel you need to express your thoughts that have been on your mind? I'm only curious and all. With regards to your question to pro-choicers on whatever or not there is an abortion that they would oppose, then logically the answer would be 'no'. Then it would not be pro-choice. You answered your own question. Of course you probably already knew that.

Joseph,

First, thanks for your response. Let me go ahead and tackle your observations in order.

I do indeed have these discussions in real life! And most of these discussions are because I'm a conservative among a bunch of liberals. Just think of that show, The View. Among the people I know, I am one Elizabeth Hasselbeck among a bunch of Barbara Walters and Whoopi Goldbergs. Fortunately, our debates and discussions - nearly all of which are impromptu - are civil, even if we do get loud on occasion. In fact, it was during one of these discussions that the boss "discovered" me, and asked me about doing this blog. He felt that my style of discussion could carry over to a blog. I have to say that I enjoyed blogging a lot more than I ever thought I would, so I'm glad the boss talked me into it.

Anyway, it occurred to me that I could head off a lot of these discussions in real life by answering their questions here on my blog. Many questions I get have been asked numerous other times, so rather than repeat myself time and time again, I tell them to go to my blog and see what I say there about "X" issue, and then get back to me if they have any other questions. This blog also allows me to organize my thoughts rather than go all over the place like my real life impromptu discussions do.

And Joseph, my fellow debaters even debate about my blog! LOL Well, they like how I explain myself, but they disagree with many of my answers - just like they do in real life, actually. Why should that change? Also, the more feminist among the group think that the title Busty Superhero Chick only adds to the objectification of women - and to an extent I agree, and am working on that. In the meantime, I will stick to my goal of challenging you guys on your obsession of boobs. I recently got an idea of just how much of a lost cause such a challenge is, but hey - I don't give up easily. ;-)

Here's the thing, dudes: I could challenge your obsession with boobs the way some of my radical feminist friends do- by protests and mass mailings (both by snail mail and e-mail) and by railing ad nauseum about what scum men are. But if I did that, the only ones who would read my blog would be a very narrow group of women who have anti-social tendencies; and in case you didn't know it, women with anti-social tendencies are not fun to be around. I was about to suggest that you try hanging around such a woman to find out, but then I don't want you to hate me afterwards. ;-)

So anyway, I chose the other means of challenging you dudes' obsession with boobs: with humor. Funny thing though, I kinda fell into the trap of objectifying women in the process, but hey - live and learn. I still think this can be done, and I'll keep working at it.

Okay Joseph, in regards to your second observation as to the fact that persons who are pro-choice can't offer an abortion that they oppose, I agree with you. It also demonstrates that what they support is not "choice" in the true sense of the word, but instead choosing only abortion. If being pro-choice really were about having choices, then Octomom would have been a pro-choice hero and celebrity. Think about it! She did *choose*, right?

So really, the term "pro-choice" is an oxymoron, because there is only one choice that is acceptable to the true pro-choice activist, and that's the choice of abortion. "Pro-abortion" is actually more accurate to define such people, but that's not a pleasant term, which is why "pro-choice" was chosen instead.

It's a bit ironic that I, as a prolifer, can take into consideration the life of the mother (as demonstrated in my previous blog entry). But prochoicers, being locked into only one "choice" as they are, cannot at all take the life of the baby into consideration.

Q&A: Pro-life and pro-death penalty?

Time for a little Q&A. This question comes from folks whom are pro-choice (on the abortion issue, of course) and who view my being pro-life and pro-death penalty as being a contradiction. Here is what they view as the contradiction: They think that if I say that all life is sacred, then that should include the lives of criminals.

And indeed it does. But understand that we ARE talking about two different groups of people! The unborn are innocent and not guilty of any crime whatsoever, unless you call their "inconvenient existence" for their mothers a crime. Someone on death row, however, has been tried and judged. Unlike the unborn, the criminals on death row have had their day in court.

Understand that I do view the lives of those on death row as sacred, but they chose to waste their lives by committing crimes so heinous that the only justice that can be delivered for their victims is by death. We are talking here about serial murderers and the like. Now please tell me that a serial murderer is on par morally with an unborn child committing the "crime" of "an inconvenient existence"! And yet, the serial murderer gets more of a chance to appeal their death sentence than does the unborn.

What has always bugged me about pro-choice liberals is that they can always find it in their hearts to find sympathy for convicted criminals, but none at all for the unborn. I find that a contradiction that I'd LOVE to hear an explanation on how they can think in such a way, and also how they can justify it. After all, if I can be called hard-hearted for having no sympathy for the execution of a serial murderer, how much more hard-hearted does a pro-choicer have to be to have no sympathy for the unborn who are executed in the womb?

And while we're at it, let me go ahead an address a question that is often posed to me: Is there an abortion that I WOULD support? The answer is yes. In the case of an ectopic pregnancy, the unborn has no chance of survival while the danger to the mother's life is great. Thus, there is no reason to put the mother through such danger for an unborn that has no chance for survival. Now I pose a question right back for you pro-choicers: Is there an abortion that you would totally oppose?

So in summary, I can be both pro-life and pro-death penalty, because comparing those two issues is comparing apples and oranges. If someone wants to try to link the two to expose an alleged conflict in my thinking, then they would have to justify that same conflict in reverse.

As for the recent efforts of exoneration of inmates on death row via DNA sampling, then I say bring it on. Justice is justice, and fair is fair. If DNA evidence exonerates an innocent on death row, then more power to those who go to the effort of exonerating them. There is no conflict in this for me, because we are still talking about justice. Even I admit that the justice system can fail, but I still stand by my support of the death penalty.

Wapsi Square webcomic

I've been following the webcomic Wapsi Square off and on for awhile now, but in recent days, the strip's appearance has taken a very interesting turn. I don't mean the storylines, which seems to be mainly a creative interpretation of Aztec mythology (along with the mythologies of other ancient civilizations).

Because of WS's many plot twists, following its storylines takes having read the strip almost since the beginning, but this blog entry is not about that right now. Instead, what follows is the artwork from the strip, which I think is among the best out there in the usage of black and white art. Some of the artwork is simply stunning!

Compare the very first WS comic strip:



And contrast it with this most current strip:



Can you believe that it's the same artist? That bottom strip is simply gorgeous!

By the way, the woman on the left in the top strip is the same woman on the left in the bottom strip, just so you have an idea on how much the artwork has evolved. That main character's name, by the way, is Monica - who, as you might have guessed, is very busty. Even though she is short - about 5 foot 2 or less, I think - she looks as busty as I am! I found out about Wapsi Square from a friend of mine.

Anyway, I recommend the webcomic for its gorgeous art, which is why I am bringing it to your attention now.

Yoko and Boota

I was sent the images below from a female friend of mine, mainly because she knew what I would comment on *specifically*. Neither I nor her know the Manga show that the characters below are from, but their names are Yoko (the busty chick) and Boota (the little furball in her cleavage.

Now, I'm willing to impart that ol' "suspension of disbelief" to accept that a little furball could live in her cleavage without leaving poop or urine in her bra. That's just cartoons, and it's how you dudes' strange little horny minds work. But, there is a problem in the image that follows below.









Okay, you see those two images. Now check out this one:











See the problem here? Well, I'll explain it for you: Boota is not in Yoko's cleavage! Don't think so? Look again. Note that you can see the space between Yoko's boobs at the bottom of her bra. That span is where Boota should be. In other words, that bra is connected at the bottom only by that thin red strap, and does not form a pocket for Boota to be staying in. In order for Boota to be residing in her bra, there needs to be fabric spanning that cleavage to form that hamster-holding pocket.

So... just where is it that Boota is emerging from, if not Yoko's cleavage? It looks like he's emerging from her sternum, a la those Alien movies! Somehow, Boota is literally burrowing into her chest! Wouldn't that hurt, you think? Unless Yoko has some super power that allows critters to burrow into her body, but that's just creepy.

Anyway, that's my take. Sorry if I burst any of you guys' bubbles there... :-P

Busty Supervillain Chicks?

I recently came across a new She-Hulk.

Meet Red She-Hulk:













































VERY unique attire, I will say that. Who she is, is not known yet. Not only that, she's also the THIRD She-Hulk! Here's another!


















































This one is the daughter of the original Hulk and a character known as Thundra. I may discuss these new She-Hulks later, but right now, I am toying with the idea of studying Busty Supervillain Chicks. I know you guys love busty superhero chicks, but what about busty supervillian chicks? Hmm...

I'll think on this over the weekend, and then let you all know what I come up with.

The truth behind the H1N1 vaccines

There is now a Facebook group that reveals the truth about the H1N1 vaccine: It's actually a zombifier! Don't believe me? Actually, it all makes perfect sense when you put it all together. So far, D.C. has been promising that their proposed government "public option" wouldn't add to the deficit, this despite costing even by their estimations close to a trillion dollars.

So how can a budgetary monstrosity like that be deficit neutral? Simple. Turn everyone into zombies, and what better way to start that up than by taking advantage of the swine flu scare by inoculating them with a zombie shot disguised as a vaccine? Once you're a zombie, then you wouldn't need health care, would you? It's a brilliant plan in its own twisted way.

All I gotta say is that I'm glad that one of my super powers is super healing! :-O

Breasts and society again

Anonymous said...
Hi. I have been reading your blog for awhile, and I believe that while your goal was to make fun of guys who obsess about women breasts, I think you ARE contributing to objectification of women. The positive note for you to counter this issue is that you fully explain yourself.

I apologize that you are getting a headache, but as I said before not all men are like that.

I do agree with you that men (such as myself) wired visually, and is a human component to the mating process with women. And there are men that are hybrids. What I am saying is that they feel from the inside and express themselves.

If you were truly upset about this, this blog would not exist.

Although objectification of women is not a positive thing, you DON'T HATE men because of it.
In conclusion, I say you should continue writing your blog. As a busty women, you are wise and are willing to educate to make society better for your gender. As a guy, I am learning a lot from you about the female perspective.

I posted Anonymous’ response above, because he pretty much captures the responses of my blog entry from last week about boobs and society. Most of the other responses were from those I know in person, so it was an interesting weekend for me. ;-)

Nearly all of the responses I got said what Anon said, that I was more objectifying women rather than my true intent of poking fun at men for being so obsessed over boobs. All I can say is that I’ll work on being clearer as to what I’m trying to do with my blog. Thing is, I kinda like how I’m doing things now, and I don’t want to mess too much with something that is working.

After all, if I wanted to mess with something that works, I’d be a liberal! (badaBOOM!). Why do you liberal guys and gals do that anyway – mess with stuff that works? You mess with it and then when it doesn’t work, you’ll tax the rest of us because you (probably intentionally) created a class of people who are the disenfranchised “victims” of the “new ways” of doing things.

Okay, I’m digressing here. Getting back to the topic…

There is a Romanian tennis player named Simona Halep who was known more for her DD’s than her tennis skills. Note the images below.



























There are two things (no pun intended) to take away from this:

1.) Those pics weren’t shot to demonstrate the technical proficiency of her tennis swing, and

2.) This shows just how much big boobs move around on an active woman, and also shows why a shrunken-down male superhero couldn’t hide in an active woman’s bra without serious injury and probably death.

Halep is an example of the convergence of a woman of her generous proportions + mens’ tendencies towards visual sexual stimulation + today’s technological means of sending images anywhere and everywhere around the world in an instant. If you do a Google search for her, the majority of the pics you find will be those like I posted. That’s how she got her fame: that outfit plus her breasts captured shifted in various directions.

You guys no doubt enjoy those images of her breasts in unusual positions, but how do you think she feels? She had stated that they get in the way, and that it was why she was going to have breast reduction surgery. I have no doubt that it will indeed help her in her tennis game, but I also think that she didn’t want to be known as a glandular freak. She probably didn’t want people to come to her matches just to watch her breasts bounce. And I don’t blame her. She’s still a teenager, after all, and already has enough to deal with without also having to deal with being thought of as a freak show.

Had she asked me, I would have told Halep to talk to another tennis player known for her boobs. I mean, of course, Serena Williams. She's just as busty, and yet she also wins tournaments - so it can be done. It might have done Halep good to know that she has - ahem - a bosom buddy (pun intended that time!) who knows what it's like to play tennis while busty. If nothing else, Williams could have suggested a better bra for her to wear, because Halep does bounce too much. It's a moot point, though, because Halep has already had the surgery.

It’s because of women like Halep that I made my blog. Busty women need to be seen for more than their cup size, and I had hoped that, by creating this blog, I could show that women like me can be busty and still have a brain. You know what’s funny? Non-busty women wish they were busty, and some have breast augmentation surgery in order to give the appearance of a larger size. Meanwhile, busty women often get tired of lugging around their heavy breasts and get breast reduction surgery! I bet even if God had made all women a good sized C cup, we’d find something else to be unhappy about! LOL “We all look alike! There’s no variety!”

It’s also why I say to the ladies to accept themselves as they are. Non-busty women have advantages that busty women do not. Here is just a short list. Women like me deal with back and shoulder pain constantly. Eyes rarely go above the chest. In sports – especially physical sports – we get the wrong kind of attention. It’s neither cheap nor easy to find outfits that look good and are tailored for our proportions. That also goes for bras. The bras I get are not the nice, slender fashion types that you see in most department store catalogs that you guys are always thumbing through (don’t lie. You know you do it). Nope, what I get resembles the Golden Gate Bridge.

Having said all that, let me finish by saying that I am very happy and proud to be a woman, and in particular, a busty woman. I mentioned previously that I am not a feminist, because too many feminists want to concentrate on the negative; that is, on what women don’t get in our society. Not me. I’d rather concentrate on the positive. Despite not quite hitting my mark of my blog being a gentle poke to you guys who obsess over boobs, I still think I managed to carve my little niche on the Internet. It doesn’t mean that I should stop trying to strike that balance I’m looking for of celebrating the busty woman while at the same time teasing you guys for obsessing over boobs. So what this all means, dear friends is this: I ain’t going anywhere. :-D

The thing is, when I had viewed that site that was at the center of my self-examination of my blog and it’s purpose, it really didn’t change anything that I didn’t know already. All that did change was the awareness of just how much booby stuff is truly out there. In other words, it wasn't a question of content, but of quantity. And Anonymous, you are right: If I were truly upset about this, then this blog wouldn’t exist. But for better or worse, it does exist. Let’s just hope that I get more right than wrong. :-P

My theory on the meaning of life

A Facebook friend of mine had asked a rhetorical question of "What's it all about?" Knowing me though, I couldn't resist answering! Here is my response as I wrote it on Facebook:

In short, my theory of the meaning of it all is that we all exist for a reason. We are here, right now, to contribute in some way to our progress in the so-called "march of history". We may be major players on the world's stage, or we could have bit parts, but we all matter in the grand scheme of things - that is, no one person is more important than another. Our life's journey is to discover what that role is, and to do what we can to live up to it. As for me, I couldn't think of a more exciting journey than that of discovering our life's calling.

Here I'm going to give a more detailed response.

Like I said above, I believe that we all have a role in life. We appear on the scene at a given point in time, then we try to fulfill what role it is that we are to play in our life, then we leave (i.e., we die). Just to get some questions out of the way, I am a non-denominational Christian - that is, I believe in Jesus Christ as God and as the savior of humanity, but I do my worshipping on a more personal basis rather than through an organized Christian religion.

You might say that I'm still shopping, because I want to find the right blend of living the "letter of the law" and the "spirit of the law". While I can identify with a lot of what evangelicals say, I don't like some of the more rigid views they hold. On the flip side, the more liberal Christians are basically indistinguishable from their secular liberal friends - so really, why bother with a group of Christians that can throw God away whenever their faith butts up against cherished liberal dogmas?

At the same time, I do recognize the benefits of belonging to a community of Christians; I just haven't found the one that's right for me. I know that there never will be a "perfect" Christian community, and at some point I'll just have to take the plunge and join a group and hope that the Good Lord has guided me to the community that is best for me. However, while I may not know what is the right one for me, I do know what is NOT right for me - so it looks like I'll be finding my way around through the process of elimination.

So in summary, let's say that I believe in the existence of God, and I believe in Jesus Christ as his son and that he died for our sins in order to open up the gates of heaven for us all. And because I believe in God, I also believe that he has roles for us to play in the course of living our lives. However, let me just as quickly add that I do NOT believe in predestination; that is, the idea that God not only has a plan for our lives, but there is nothing we can do about it, and that we will go to our eternal reward to the place he has already decided in advance that we will be going. The flaw in that thinking, though, is that there is no incentive to be good, because if you're going to hell no matter how saintly a life you live on earth, then "what the hell", you might as well live a life of reckless abandon! When you get down to it, predestination is depressing.

What I believe instead that God knows how our lives are going to turn out, but he doesn't determine your final reward; that is up to you. You can lead a saintly life and live an afterlife in heavenly bliss. But if it's a hellish life you choose to live and spending your afterlife with God is not your cup of tea, then it's the Inferno for you, baby, because the only place to not be with God in the afterlife is in hell.

Having said all that, let's get to the point that I stated above in my response to my friend. I believe that we all have a role to play in life. Our goal is to discover that role. Now, to explain my philosophy in this, I like to use two analogies: A theatrical production and a picture puzzle.

When you go to a theatrical play, you see the actors and judge how well they performed in their roles. The better ones stand out and you keep them in mind for the times they are in future plays. BUT! The play's performance is not just the actors. No my friends, so much more goes into putting the play together. There's costume design and make-up, and script and lighting and directing and musical score and musical orchestras, and... well, you get the idea. A play is not just about the actors, but about a complex and coordinated bunch of activities going on both on and off the stage. A well-coordinated effort will produce a memorable play. A poorly-executed effort will also be memorable - but in the wrong way!

While we may make big to-do's over certain actors or actresses, they are only part of the play. The most visible part of the play, granted, but without all the production crew, they wouldn't have the stage for which to be seen in the first place, and then where would their egos be? What this means is that no one player of the play is more important than the other - they all need each other in order to put out a play that will be a performance for the ages. If they all get along, then a splendid product is put out to rave reviews. However, if there is dissension in the ranks, then the play's performance suffers accordingly, and the producers can expect harsh reviews afterwards.

As for the picture puzzle analogy, each and every piece of such a puzzle is important - no one piece is more important than another. You can have the whole puzzle assembled except for one piece, and what will catch your eye first? You got it - the missing piece. In the course of your life, you will discover that you have certain talents and skills; in turn, you also discover that you have certain weaknesses and limitations. Theses strengths/weaknesses and talents/limitations help shape who we are and what we can become. Or in the puzzle analogy, they help shape the type of puzzle piece that we become.

Along with learning the roles in our lives, something just as important is to discover our limitations; that is, what we just weren't meant to do. We have to recognize that we have our limits. Accepting those limitations is the first step to adult maturity. The most childish of adults are those who never accepted responsibility for their actions.

What this all ultimately mean to me, then, is that life is a journey. We start at birth and end at death, and in between, we learn about ourselves and the world and the role we are to play in it. You discover that role by learning your strengths and limitations and operating accordingly.

Of course, there will be times in which you simply do not know what you should do or what path you should take. In such times, I pray the Serenity Prayers, which goes basically like so:

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can change, and the wisdom to know the difference."

It's short, and yet so profound, which is why I love that prayer.

Okay, I didn't mean to go on like this! LOL I hope, though, that what I said above makes sense, and I hope that I haven't bored my poor friend by responding to a question that wasn't looking for an answer! :-)

You guys have a great weekend, and I'll discuss more the previous blog entry on breasts and society, and the reactions I got to that entry. But feel free to keep sending those responses. I've also yet to hear from any of the ladies, and I so want your feedback on this as well.

See you Monday!

The question of breasts and society

On Facebook yesterday, I mentioned that I needed a drink. It's because I was reading this at the time: Victoria's Secret Compartment

Look at that site!

The link was sent to me by a reader. What got my attention first, though, was this image:












The woman is pulling a whole freakin' full length bazooka from her bra!

Yeahyeahyeah... I know what some of you guys are going to say - "It's just a cartoon!" and "It's exaggeration for humorous effect!". But guys, check out that page, and see how much of this "titty show" stuff runs in the entertainment media! It was enough to give me a headache! It's why I needed a drink, by the way.

Anyway, one of the reasons that I made this blog was to poke fun at the often absurd obsession that you guys have with boobs. I've said before on this blog that to me, they're just boobs - that is, they're a part of my body just like my hands or my knees. That's it!

And yet to you guys for some reason I don't understand, boobs are a magical, mysterious and almost mystical force of nature - so much so that there is literally tons of stuff out there just on boobs, and there are websites like the one I linked above that are sources for other such mammarian imagery. Sites like that are out there because you guys will watch it, and time and money are invested in such sites because you guys will buy what they offer, which is various expositions of a woman's mammary glands. Yeah, guys - they're mammary glands. They're the equivalent of a cow's udder. They are what we use to feed babies with. You call them boobs, tits, bazooms, etc, but they're just breasts.

Not only do you guys spend money for these titty shows, but women spend money as well to make their boobs look more presentable. Especially bothersome to me is that they will pay to have foreign objects surgically inserted into their breasts so that they look larger. I've always said that a natural A cup beats an inflated D cup any day, but apparently, I'm in the minority opinion on that, because thousands of women will endure the health risks of breast augmentation surgery. Granted, being busty myself, it's easy for me to be critical of women who go through such surgery - I'll admit that much - but I still say that they should just accept themselves for who they are.

Let me say this: I often defend you guys against feminists who want to find sexism under every rock, behind every tree, and in every pair of men's pants. I tell them that guys obsess over boobs because they are wired that way - to be sexually attracted by sight. I think God gave men that visually-stimulated sexual attraction so that you would notice us. Otherwise, we probably could never get you away from your sports and your drinking binges with your buddies. I tell the feminists that at least we get SOMETHING out of you with our boob bait.

I'm not going to go into an anti-feminist tear here, because even though I'm conservative, I don't see feminism as totally wrong - just wrongly applied. Let's just say that I support the feminism that helps women to become better and stronger people, and not the kind of feminism that is man-hating and indulges in whiny self-pity and institutionalized victimhood. Women and womanhood have a lot to offer society, and "victimist" feminists often forget that during their narcissistic rant-fests.

Having said that, when I am confronted with sites as the one I linked above, I have to wonder if my blog is helping matters, or if it's only contributing to the problem. In other words, is my blog truly poking fun at you guys for being obsessed with boobs like I want it to be doing, or am I only contributing to the problem of you objectifying women? That's where I am at right now, and that's what I'll be mulling over for the next few days.

Anyway, I'd appreciate your input on this matter, from both the men and the women.

Now to go get that drink.

The Antman's special hiding spot








A reader sent this to me over the weekend and asked if I would ever do something like that. Uh, no. For one, that's just creepy. And for another, it's not a safe spot to hide in if the woman has super strength. The shifting and collisions with each other that my boobs undergo in a super battle would crush whomever would be in there. I know this because the cellphones that I've kept there have been crushed during such battles. While some guys might call being crushed there a "happy death", I do not want to deal with bloody remains in my bra. Sorry guys, but that's just gross.

Review of Superman/Batman: Public Enemies

Today is my review of the movie, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies (SBPE) But first, the obligatory:

***WARNING!***

Possible spoilers ahead! If you haven't read the book or seen the movie
Superman/Batman: Public Enemies and don't want it spoiled for you, then STOP READING NOW!

****You have been warned! ***


What I liked the most about SBPE is that my favorite busty superhero chick, Power Girl, makes her first appearance in an animated film. My only gripe about her appearance is the voice chosen for her. I think it was a little too high pitched and girlish for a character who is supposed to be an adult woman. Plus, given PG's reputation as someone who is brash, in SBPE, she almost sounded "Valley Girl". In short, I don't think her voice matched her character.

I also liked the fact that another busty superhero chick, Starfire, also made an appearance. This isn't the teen Starfire from the TV series, Teen Titans, but the adult Starfire from the comics. Unfortunately, she has no lines in the film, which is odd, given that she is known to be outspoken and emotional. Granted, this film was about Superman and Batman, but the right kinds of touches on these two ladies would have gone a long way to making the film better.

Anyway, having read the SBPE storyline when it had hit print some years back, I was curious as to how faithful the film would follow the storyline in the comics. In that, it was very faithful - and perhaps a tad TOO faithful. Granted, the producers of the movie were likely thinking of the annoying comic geeks that would point out EACH and EVERY example of how the film's storyline didn't follow the comic book's storyline, but such translations can be difficult. I think it would have been more important for the film to be entertaining rather than faithful to a familiar storyline.

As far as entertaining, it was just that: entertaining. And if I hadn't already read the comic book version of that storyline, then I probably would have enjoyed it more. What having read the book first did for me, though, was to demonstrate to me how much the film was trying to follow the comic book, and it was a bit distracting. Still, I must admit that it was awesome seeing Supes and Bats in action. That was the best part of the film.

However, there was one scene in the film that I think outdid the book, and it was the appearance of the Silver Banshee. In the book, her appearance is heard first before she is seen. She interrupts the conversation that Superman and Batman were having by belting them with one of her sonic screams. In the film, that scene was made even better by actually hearing the scream. It actually startled me a bit!

Overall, it was a very good movie; one definitely worth watching whether or not you read the book first. But like I said, I think it tried too hard to be faithful to the book, and it messed with its pacing. It's because of this that I can only give it an 8 on a scale in which 1 is a bomb and 10 is THE bomb.

Meet the "Seamrog", a Fort Worth vigilante















This person operates in Fort Worth, and she is not affiliated with the DSS or any other recognized superhuman agencies. Thus, the DSS has officially classified her as "vigilante"; that is, someone who operates outside the law, and for whom the DSS has an interest in apprehending. She has been code-named "Seamrog", which is the Irish version of "shamrock". We gave her the code name "Seamrog" because Marvel Comics already has the trademark for the superhero name "Shamrock".

By the way, for those superhumans who operate outside the law, the DSS has three categories:

* Vigilante, which is basically anyone who dons a recognizable superhero attire and whom engages in what is considered superhero activities, but without reporting to anyone like I do with the DSS. All such people who operate outside the law are given this designation until two things happen, and when they happen, they fall into the two other categories, which are discussed below. Also note that they are given this designation whether or not they are recognizably superhuman. If it turns out to be a superhuman vigilante, then it becomes a DSS matter. Otherwise, it's a matter that is left to the local or state law enforcement.

* Hostile Vigilante, which is basically what the rest of us call "super villains" - in other words, that's our official name for superhuman bad guys. Hostile vigilantes are given our top priority and are handled exclusively by the DSS, overriding the authority of all local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.

* Rogue Vigilante is a pretty narrow title that is for those superhuman superheros that had once been DSS agents (or agents of other departments), but now have gone rogue; in other words, they have struck out on their own and now operate outside the DSS. For those who are in hiding, they are known as AWOL Rogue Vigilantes; otherwise, they are merely Observed Rogue Vigilantes.

We at the DSS like to say that all Rogue Vigilantes are Observed Rogue Vigilantes; it's just that some are more "observed" than others, and we prioritize accordingly. Rogue vigilantes are "observed" simply because they went rogue, but so long as they behave themselves, they will stay "observed" - that is, we will keep our eye on them and check on them once in a while, but if they don't cause trouble, then we'll let them be, unless circumstances dictate a need to contact them.

Of course, if any Rogue Vigilantes turn bad on us, then they are re-classified as Hostile Vigilantes. Since we still have files on them, we know their identities and the full range of their powers, so if any of them do go hostile on us, we have the means of knowing how to deal with them; which is why most rogues will behave themselves in order to keep us off their backs. A few have adopted a status of "on-call" and will assist at certain times should conditions warrant it, but they will go back to their Observed Rogue Vigilante status after that.

But getting back to Seamrog...

Based on reports of Seamrog's activities, she is about 5 foot 10 and is very athletic. Her observed powers are the ability to stick to walls virtually like Spiderman, but she does not have webs like him, nor does she seem to have his super strength. In fact, her strength seems to be that of a regular human woman her height and build and who engages in regular intensive exercise. It is not known at this time whether the sticky power is a superhuman trait, or if it something that is the result of an adhesive. However, since she has also been observed using gadgets a la Batman, then it's likely that her sticky power is also one of her gadgets.

So far she has only been busting up burglars and muggers, so we have largely let her do her thing. But should she cause any harm or property damage, then we will be apprehending her.

New blog banner! Let me know what you think

Hey, troopers!

As you probably already noticed, I have a new blog banner! Me and the boss finally were able to get it worked out so that it would post. What do you think of it? Let me know.

I am still working on the other changes, but I wanted to get this one out first. So until I get this other stuff ironed out, I am going to stick to posting on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Can you believe it's almost mid-October?

Dressing as me for Halloween? Hmm...

I got at least one question in real life about this, and it made me think that maybe there might be others. I don't think there would be that many more, since I'm not that well known yet (I like to tell others that I'm famous, but no one knows it yet). That question is, "If I wanted to dress like Andromeda for Halloween, what sort of outfit and the like would I need?" So with that, here's my best attempt to create an Andromeda costume short of making it yourself (which you are welcome to do, of course).

White stretch headband:




















White cheerleader briefs
















Boots: Colint Stuart Stretch Wedge Boots - $98

































As for the top and the skirt, I had to do some research, and I think I found something that will work. Got to this site, and you'll find this top:



































That white top is perfect, and if any of you are seamstresses, then you can cut out the chevron-shaped cleavage hole.

That site also has the white skirt, called a Trendsetter Short Skirt:

































So far this is all looking better than I expected. Not cheap, but still a pretty decent looking version of my costume. As for the bracers of my costume, you could go fancy with some leather bracers, or you can find some long sleeve brown gloves. Just make sure that they match the brown in the boots, because all the brown portions of my costume match. I also have some upper arm bracers that go over my biceps, and those can be just some simple brown cloth.

I don't wear any jewelry while in costume other than earrings, and those are just simple white triangles, and perhaps your local accessories store will have those. Okay, you got this far, and you're looking pretty good! Now to finish this off!

To get the cleavage I show, you'll need some padding to push your boobs up. How much padding you need depends, of course, on your cup size, but you do need to look like you have big, pushed-up boobs, and not merely pushed-up boobs. In other words, for this you will need not a push-up bra, but a regular bra with padding.

And last is the smiley-face on the boob. You can find a temporary tattoo or use yellow clown make-up with a black clown make-up pen to make the eyes and smile. You can also get a permanent tattoo, but that's entirely up to you. I am not about to ask anyone to do something like that!

So! With that, you should have a pretty good and convincing version of my costume. By my rough estimates, you are easily looking at $200+ here, so it's entirely up to you if you want to go through the trouble and expense to look like a busty superhero chick who is not well known yet.

However, if you do - please PLEASE send me pics of you in the costume! I would love love LOVE to see how it turns out! I'll also post it here, of course! If you have any questions about any of this, feel free to ask me.

If you go out in my costume, most likely others will think you're supposed to be a cheerleader rather than a superhero. You are free to add a white "Lone Ranger" mask if it helps to convey the image of "superhero". But if you send me pics of you in my costume, please send pics with and without the mask.

Just gettin' you all caught up on what's going on round these parts...

Hey, gang!

Yesterday was supposed to be when I got back into the swing of things! Well, here's the situation...

I have a new blog banner, but for some reason I can't view the finished work, and it's done that twice now whenever I've tried to save it. The boss is working on why that is happening. Hopefully he'll have that fixed soon so that I can put it up. However, he is also busy with scanning the story he made during the 24 Hour comic thing. Just so you know, it's a rushed pencil sketch, so it's not the best artwork he's ever done, but as it usually is with him, the story makes up for the art.

Saturday into Sunday, we were working together on the story - well, it was mainly him with me offering my suggestions and opinions, but hey - I helped a little bit, okay? In between the times he was sketching and writing, I did other stuff like get goodies for us to eat, and kept up with the sports scores, and I also went out to buy a couple of movies for me to review later. One is Superman/Batman: Public Enemies and the other is Monsters vs. Aliens.

Anyway, the boss finished the story, and he's now working on scanning the pages so that I can post it to my blog. Thing is, since it's a rushed pencil sketch, it's a bit messy and it also is not as clean when scanned, so he has to work on *each page* in order to make it scan properly where you can see the art and words. On top of that, he's trying to fix my banner, so he's got his hands full. I'll keep you up to date on that. The cool thing though, is that you will finally see me in a story! Whoohoo!

So that's the situation, folks. On Thursday I have a special treat for you, and then I'll try to get this show up and running next Monday, as I want to try to get back to a M/W/F posting format. Hopefully by then I'll have my new banner up as well.

I can't wait for you guys to see me in a story at last!

See you Thursday!

Ha! The feminists heard me about Polanski!

The feminists heard me, and have put a response to the Polanski issue! Of course, they're not going to give me credit, because I'm a conservative, and one who isn't ashamed of being conservative - but hey, at least they responded. I will also note, however, that they complained first about the Huffington Post's poll about Best Hollywood Chest before they responded to the Polanski issue.

If I were a feminist that was true to my calling, I would have responded to the Polanski story as soon as it came out, and long before I discussed how obsessed Hollywood is with chests.

There is even an observation that could be made about how shallow, vapid, and hedonistic the Hollywood culture is, and how it helped create the environment that gawks at boobs and defends child rapists - but surely you all can see that? Surely it's not only God-fearing conservatives who see this depravity for what it is?

Roman Polanski deserves prison. Period.

I am taking a brief break from my blog re-do to state something that has been on my mind lately, and it's the defense of Roman Polanski over his crime of drugging then raping and sodomizing a 13 year old. The thing is, I wanted to offer an example that no one would deny is wrong. But damn, if that many people can't see how wrong the rape and sodomizing of a 13 year is, then what other example could I provide that could best illustrate how evil it was what Polanski did?

Yes, I said it was an evil act. That's a moral judgment, so sue me. Just understand that I am not judging his soul - only God can do that - but this act; this one heinous act. And let me re-emphasize that what Polanski did was a CRIME. It wasn't a mere lapse in judgment. His ass deserves prison, along with the rest of him. My kudos to a Salon columnist who really lays it on the line.

What I also found rather shocking is when I tried to look up the feminist response to this. I checked the National Organization for Women website, but I didn't find a mention on it. I also checked Google News and Yahoo! News and did searches there for "Polanski" and "feminist" (and "feminists"), but only bloggers are listed on Google and nothing on Yahoo! Surely there is an official feminist response to this, because we are talking the rape of a child here.

If any of you happen to find something that gives an official feminist reaction to this story, please send it to me. Anything less than an outright condemnation from feminists of Polanski and the need for justice to be done will not only show feminists to be hypocrites, but traitors to their gender. I would think that if feminists were true to their calling, then it would have taken nothing to find many hits for searches of feminist reactions to Polanski's crime.

Quick reminder about this week

Hey, gang.

Just a quick reminder about this week, that I won't be posting any regular entries. Instead, what you'll see are posts meant to be an easy reference to stuff I've written or reviewed before, so that my readers will have an easy access to those earlier works.

I'll be back to regular posting probably a week from today.

Thanks!

Green Lantern question

In my blog entry movie review of Green Lantern: First Flight, Donald Gordon asks this question:

How come in GL:FL, GL is portrayed as a white guy, while in the Justice League animated series he's black?

A very good question, and a very easy answer! Earth has more than one GL! In fact, it has 5! 4 belong to the Green Lantern Corps (GLC), and one just happens to be a 5th Green Lantern for whatever reason, but is not affiliated with the GLC. The Earth GLs are as follows:

* Hal Jordan, gung-ho pilot, and the GL in the GL:FF movie
* John Stewart, architect, and the GL in the JL animated series
* Kyle Rayner, artist
* Guy Gardner, mainly a egotistical jerk who is a hero when needed
* Alan Scott, a GL from the 1940s and not affiliated with the GLC.

So how did Earth manage to have 5 GLs while most planets have to share two GLs among one of the 3,600 intergalactic sectors in the universe? Maybe the Guardians feel that we get into that much trouble!

Family of Jack Kirby to sue for copyrights to his creations

I just HAD to comment on this! The family of Jack Kirby is suing to gain the copyrights to the characters he created. You all know from a previous blog entry how much I was against the acquisition of Marvel by Disney, so I say "Go Kirby family, GO!" If they pull this off, it will be the classical superhero tale of the mighty hero defeating the awesome and terrible giant! And if the Kirby family does win, they should make a comic book out of their story! :-D

200th post! Whoohoo! And a new artwork of me!

Here we are, folks! Post #200! Let's get right to the cool stuff, shall we? Check this out!















Whoohoooo! Ain't it awesome! Today's artwork is done by Scott Blair, and he can be found here.

Scott is also accepting commissions, so look him up if you need some artwork. :-D

Here is Scott's section in which he discusses the artwork he did of me. I also slip in my own comment. And man, I really need to update my deviant page! LOL

Thanks, Scott, for a great piece of artwork! :-D

Okay folks, now for some news.

I'm not going to be making regular posts for the rest of this week and probably all of next week. Instead, for this week and next, I'm going to do some rearranging of my blog and what I have on it. There will also be a new banner to include Scott's new artwork. Mainly though, I want to make new sidebars to better clarify what I do on my blog. For instance, reviews are one of the services I offer, so I'm going to work on making a page of links to my reviews so that my readers can see it and know what movies and comics I've reviewed so far. I'm also considering offering to do reviews for those of you who have webcomics, but I'm still debating that right now.

So anyway, when you see posts on my blog for this week and next, it will be a page of reviews I've done or something like it, and it will be my way rearranging my blog. So don't panic if it looks like I'm going crazy. After all, I can't GO crazy if I'm already there! (badum-TISHH!) :-P

I'll also look into going back to a MWF format, with perhaps Fridays being Review Day or something like that. I had been thinking lately that it might be helpful if I had a little more structure to what I write about, so I'll look into it.

So again, the blog entries you will be seeing for this week and next are for clean-up. My next REAL blog entry will be on Monday, October 5th. So until then, keep up with me on Facebook. I'll still making my goofy comments there.

Thanks, all! You've been great, and join me for the ride to post # 300! :-D

Green Lantern: First Flight review



Green Lantern and the Green Lantern Corps have been making the rounds in recent years, and it's been a very fun ride following it all. For today's blog entry, I will review the recently released movie Green Lantern: First Flight (GLFF).

Overall, I very much enjoyed the movie. It was certainly entertaining and it was cool seeing all those Green Lanterns, and to see them use their rings. It also reinforced the Hal Jordan as a gung-ho jet jockey followed by being a gung-ho ring jockey. I guess the only problem with it is that it was rather predictable. So as to differentiate between Hal and the other GLs, I'm just going to say Hal from here on, because he was the main character anyway.

Unlike the previous 2009 DC release Wonder Woman, which had some unexpected plot twists and pleasant surprises, GL:FF basically followed a familiar formula of the gung-ho smartass learning a lesson in humility and re-dedicating himself afterwards to be a more open and sensitive man. I'm trying very hard to avoid using the word "formulaic" because that word generally has negative vibes, and like I said, it was still a very enjoyable movie. Because of its entertainment value, it doesn't deserve the label "formulaic".

I just wonder if this was rushed through production to get it to the market as quickly as possible, because I think the story could have used a little tweaking to work out the predictability and work in a good plot twist. In other words, I think such tweaking would have made a very good movie even better. I still recommend buying it, and I still give it an 8.5 on a scale of 1 to 10 in which 1 is a bomb and 10 is THE bomb.

Sorry that this post is a day late. See you next week!

200th post to come next week

Okay, kiddies...

The 200th post is coming up next week, and -

- boy, do I have something special! You'll just have to wait to see it! Don't ask for any hints, because I won't be giving any! LOL

Coming Thursday will be a review of the recently released animated movie of Green Lantern titled Green Lantern: First Flight. And coming at the end of the month is yet another DC toon, titled Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, which is based on a story arc of the DC title of the same name. I'll be sure to watch and review that one as well.

I'm trying to decide how to provide a page of links to my reviews of comics and superhero movies - that is, if I want to have a list of links in a sidebar, or just provide one link in the sidebar that will link to a page of comic and movie reviews.

Oh, and last are these two WoW related videos that had me literally laughing out loud! Enjoy!
