While I was wandering around trying to find a good link for Stray Toasters I came across this: Michigan State University Libraries Comic Art Collection Reading Room Index, and I thought "cool!" It's just the index, but the fact that such a collection exists warms my heart.
Full day today: the usual work grind, then dentist for pre-crown work at 3:45 p.m. - no idea how long that will take, but afterward I'll probably go up to Aurafice for some caffeine to help clear the anesthetic out of my system, then at 9:30 p.m. I'm off to the Egyptian for Asoka the Great. I embrace my insomnia! Bwa-ha!
At some point in the future I'll probably natter on some about When Clones Attack - I mean Attack of the Clones. I'm still digesting - by which I mean sorting out objective impressions from subjective desires, etc. What would I have thought of it had I never encountered the hype; how would I have liked it as simply a SF/Fantasy epic if the original Star Wars hadn't been such a defining moment in my childhood love of the genre. Pretty pretty ships, though - and some of the grand battle scenes with the smoke and the winking lightsabres were very stirring. I really liked the clone-maker aliens, too.
