Review: Through the Woods by @emilyterrible
It can be terrifying to be a woman. Don’t get me wrong — there are so many great things about it, too. It’s not like all women live every moment in fear.
But there is an underlying current of danger for so many women. Is this street safe? Should I ride in the elevator with this man or wait for the next one? Is this person my friend or just waiting for an opportunity to take advantage of me?

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.
We Are The Best - Starring David Dencik, Liv LeMoyne and Alexander Karlsson - Now in Theatres -
From Swedish master Lukas Moodysson, We are the Best! revolves around three girls in 1980’s Stockholm who decide to form a punk band — despite not having any instruments and being told by everyone that punk is dead. Based on a graphic novel, We are the Best! is a paean to DIY culture and the power of rebellion.
You can rent this on the Internet right now! You should! It’s goddamn adorable. I don’t mean that in a dismissive way at all. It has a good heart and I love that.
I may write more about it tomorrow, but it’s one of the rare movies that treats young teenage girls as people. I just want to hug it forever.
And then I want to go play the guitar a bunch.
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!
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!
