So on Twitter, I was asking about body horror made by women and I got some good answers, but I’m also disappointed that there’s not a lot overall. But maybe women deal with body horror in ways that people don’t recognize.

(There are other things here — I think women are used to their weird bodies and it’s the men who are terrified of what they can do. But other issues!)

This is the trailer for the 2012 adaptation of Kyoko Okazaki’s Helter Skelter, which was one of my favorite comics of last year that came out in English. It’s awesome and you should read it because it’s so good (Okazaki is amazing anyway — I also love Pink).

There’s not a proper English release for this movie, but you can find it on DVD with English subtitles. It’s also directed by a woman, which is cool (she also did an adaptation of Moyoco Anno’s Sakuran, which I’m not sure why I’m not watching right now).

I am not into horror overall, but I do sort of like body horror, depending on what it is. I’m a weirdo.

(This path began thinking about Emily Carroll’s work. I’m not finishing that review tonight, though. Tomorrow!)

Last night at the bar, I was saying that the only hard part of my Ripley costume was going to be making the patches.

I was told “You can just buy those.”

And that’s a totally true thing. I can just buy those.

You think I’m kidding about this Ripley costume, don’t you? I am not (It’s Alien Ripley, not Aliens, in case you were curious).

This is pretty terrific. Kate and I miss playing D&D so much!

I feel like we should organize some sort of D&D game at SPX or something.

No one has time for D&D at SPX. I’m not against this idea but I don’t even have time to talk to everyone! We just need to make SPX an entire week.

Earlier this week, something reminded me of Stephane Sednaoui's video for Y.A.S.’s “Get It Right.” I thought, hey, what has he been doing? So I looked him up tonight and he has an exhibit up in the Sept. 11 museum, a book of those photos, and he also directed this video this year. That’s all pretty cool.

You see, back in my younger days (and they’re getting younger all the time), I made a little fansite for Stephane Sednaoui. Because I was that kind of weirdo. I collected video clips (this was long before YouTube. LONG BEFORE) and scanned photos out of magazines. I made some terrible frame-based site that I updated with whatever news I could find.

And then one day, Sednaoui emailed me. He’d found my site. I thought it was a joke at first. But no, it was him. He also, kindly, provided me his entire videography to post on my site. He was absolutely kind and remembered me years later when I contacted him after buying the Palm Pictures collection of his work.

I am not telling you this because I’m a name-dropper. I find name dropping boring. But it was an early lesson for me about how awesome the Internet can be and how it can connect you to people you think are really cool. No one is that remote and really, we’ll all the same.

I’m glad he’s active again because I love his work. He has a beautiful eye. It seems like he’s in a good place, and I like that. I also get that. I am no where near as talented as he is, but I get needing to focus on yourself rather than your creative pursuits. It makes me happy he’s more active now (still holding out for him to direct a Daft Punk video, though!)

(And like I said, I am not a name-dropper. At all. But considering some of his previous romantic partners, if you want play that game with me, I’m probably going to win it.)

spx:

You’ll have to come find me in September. And you’ll be able to do it with your eyes closed. My pockets will be rattlingly full of these!

LOVE.

Come see me at Library-Con at the Petworth Neighborhood Library on Aug. 2. I will be talking about comics by women that you should be reading right now from 2 to 3 p.m. Do you want to see if I can fill an hour talking about comics? Have you met me?
I would love it if you come see me do this! I appreciate the support! Or also feel free to point and laugh or heckle or ask me questions I can’t answer. I don’t care as long as you show up.And since there are other things going on during this event, you can do one of those things while pointedly skipping my talk. I’d appreciate that too!

ooooh my gosh

found this song on my computer that me and dev of majical cloudz made in like 2009 about our cat voignamir who at the time was on very bad terms with us because we were forcing him to diet and so he was like, very violent but literally like 20 or 30 pounds.  

i dont know why it sounds like indie rock haha, neither of us really make music like this

Grimes and Devon Welsh of Majical Cloudz wrote the theme song to the Internet. And then forgot about it.
