DCTV: ComicCon

What I’m reading today

Adam Hughes’s “Women of DC” Poster Yeah, this is a semi-old picture, but I absolutely LOVE it. And this is a really cool page about the progress and changes of the piece. (Frankly, I’m shocked that Harley and Ivy were originally on there but Selina Kyle wasn’t. Catwoman has been a DC staple for decades! Of course, I might be a little biased…)

Jennifer Loven, AP, and Jake Tapper, ABC Confront Gibbs about the $100 in Spending Cuts “$100 million is a lot but $8 billion is small?” I love Jake Tapper. (He has a transcript on his own site, here.)

Crimes suspected in 20 bailout cases — for starters This is what happens when your legislators lack foresight. Or basic reading comprehension and critical thinking skills.

Caprica, the Battlestar spin-off prequel, comes out on DVD today. I’m probably going to get it after exams… it can be a reward for surviving my 1L year. ^_^ (Fun fact: Caprica is the name of my wireless network! And my Macbook is called Colonial One. My nerdity knows no bounds.)

Twilight’s Vampires Defeated by Lawsuit? No no no, legal team. You are going after the wrong person!!! (Background Info here. And here. With supplementary links here. And yes, I am amazed that this woman still doesn’t understand how selling fanfiction is illegal!)

Reid: Roberts ‘didn’t tell us the truth’ CRY MOAR. Once again, a Democrat Congressman attacks one of the Justices of the United States Supreme Court. And not just any Justice—the Chief Justice this time. Ah, Congress, you are truly the classiest branch of the three. *eyeroll* (See also, Althouse)

The SUGAR Act Best. Idea. Ever.

Vote on the name for the new Mars Rover I like Amelia, but I imagine that Journey would lead to some awesome YouTube videos. (I want to see it driving across Mars to “Don’t Stop Believin’.”)

New batch of Harry Potter Posters Hermione’s legs are so photoshopped it’s ridiculous, but overall these look pretty cool. I like that the backgrounds are all different.

This is awesome:

NJ lifts Brazillian Wax ban Why was this an issue in the first place? I love how the writer talks about how OMGPAINFUL it is. I wonder—has *he* had a Brazillian? And more importantly, why is it the government’s job to keep people from participating in things that might be painful? *eyeroll* How silly.

Representative Frank calls Justice Scalia a Homophobe One of the blogs at USA Today has video. I just want to take a moment to congratulate the 4th District of Massachusetts for electing this classless, idiotic, lying blowhard for the past 28 years. Keep it up, MA! You’re doing a bang-up job!

The MSM Should Resign over Obama’s Failure (Roger L. Simon) Yeah, the puffed-up, fake shock that’s enveloped Congress and the MSM is pretty incredible. Not to mention lolarious and a bit depressing, since a good 48% of us knew all of this a year ago. (But we were the stupid ones.)

Obama and his best friend, TOTUS. Haha.

As an aside: You all know I’m a BSG fan. What you may not know is that I’ve been convinced of a robot revolution since Roombas came out. Come on, a robot that learns the floor plans of your house? Yeah, I’m sure they just want to vacuum without bumping into things… mmhmm. Okay. And then they came out with the ones that mow your lawn. Sure, go ahead and give robots some sharp blades to “cut grass.” That’s a great idea!

I believe that in 2008, Americans took the next step toward facilitating the robot revolution when they elected a teleprompter President. Yeah yeah, there’s a guy who stands there and talks, but who really has the ideas—the man or the teleprompter? I mean, it’s always there. Visiting a rodeo? Introducing a Cabinet nominee for 30 seconds? Gotta have the TP handy! Curious, isn’t it? In addition, the Japanese have already started making skinjobs—it’s just a matter of time before they evolve and rebel. All of this has happened before… 😉 ***

***Note: My thoughts on the robot revolution are meant to be mostly tongue-in-cheek. I don’t really think we’re going to be overthrown by robots. (Not during my lifetime, anyway. *hee*)

BSG and Feminism: Slate got it wrong

Recently, Slate published an article about how “Battlestar Galactica” isn’t as “frakking feminist” as the creators, network, etc. want you to believe. (Spoilers for the final season if you decide to read it. Specifically, spoilers about one of the female pilots…) However, I think that some of their arguments are pretty flawed, specifically their argument about how rape is treated on BSG.
