2015 Best Nine Instagrams

What the hell is this post, a shameless plug for my Instagram?  On the one hand, yes definitely.  On the other hand, I’ve felt an Instagram rant has been long overdue from me and I want to get my feelings out there and see what you think.  But first, the[…]

Dear Santa…

Dear Santa: I don’t ask for much in the way of gifts and presents, because what I really want can’t sit under the tree with a shiny red bow on top.  Santa, if you think (as I do) that I’ve been good this year, I will be even better next[…]

This week’s 5 Fandom Friday topic is “Fandoms You’re Thankful For” but the only fandom community I could think of was this one:  The Blogging Community.  We have our inside jokes, our struggles, our cliches, and our unique culture.  I knew I wanted to write a Thanksgiving post about the[…]

Cylons At Home

I don’t actually know how I feel about this, but my house is wired.  Networked.  Vulnerable to Cylon attack.  I live with intelligent computers who secretly hate me.  Okay, that’s a little dramatic.  Maybe they just don’t like me. This has been a scorching summer, one for the record books. […]

TTFN, Hipster Batgirl

Is there any better feeling than being right? Around the last issue of Batgirl of Burnside, I developed a theory as to who the villain was aaaaaaaaand… SPOILER ALERT I was totally right!  It’s Batgirl/Oracle herself!  In my theory, the whole Burnside blushy-hearts escapade was a fugue state and the[…]

Happy Valentine’s Day from Secret Six!

Several (several) weeks after it was supposed to come out, last Wednesday we finally saw the thrilling second half of the re-re-make of Secret Six.  The first ended on a cliffhanger, asking the question, “What’s the secret?”  And I figured out what the secret was:  a Super Special Valentine’s Day[…]

Batgirl #37: Gaga for Banksy

I’m gonna say it, I think Batgirl #37 was the best Burnside Batgirl issue yet!  You know that saying, don’t judge a book by its cover?  That absolutely applies here.  The first few pages are definitely…a little off-putting.  Selfie!  Kawaii!  Poker face!  Erm, yeah, maybe not…  Not at first, anyway. […]
