*coughs* Pardon the early hour (where I am, anyway). Did not want to miss Day 27 entirely! What have you been doing?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

Question of the day: When you sit down to type, do you have a preference for the type of keyboard you have to use?

'The "insane" -- ie, foaming at the mouth -- Joker is definitely far, far off-model from the correct portrayal of the character. The real Joker was able to keep Batman guessing because he was smart and ruthless, not because he was crazy. The latter is a lot like saying a drunk driver would have the best chance of winning at the Indy 500!'- John Byrne

Senate ACA Repeal bill fails (again)

In a dramatic late-night vote, three Republican senators join all 48 Democrats in voting down the so-called "skinny" repeal bill. (Politico)

I was following twitter feeds of some of the reporters at the Senate during the vote-a-rama, and everyone was pretty much stunned by the turn of events. For more than an hour, Republicans refused to close the previous vote so that they'd have more time to strong-arm McCain, Murkowski, and Collins. No one knew what was being said, so reporters were describing body language and hoping. I couldn't believe it was going to go our way, even when Pence left the building.

And then the votes came in.

WE WON!

(Okay, nothing's officially dead until we get a better ACA repair bill in play, but still -- this was supposed to be a done deal in January and we've fought it to a fucking standstill and I AM SO PROUD OF US, LOOK HOW STRONG WE ARE TOGETHER!)

America #1 - Breaking Up

If there was one Marvel book that I had to say was probably the weakest thing currently being published, it would be America. It's not because of the themes or the character, but mostly on the writing... and how the character is written. There's... problems if you haven't noticed.


As such, let's take a brief look at one of the scenes of the first issue.

There was some interest on meme a while back in doing a book club of sorts, in which the community would choose an older book that's easily available to read or re-read and discuss together.

If you're interested, please let us know in a comment below (anon comments are certainly welcome!). And if you have a run, series, or graphic novel you'd like to nominate, feel free to comment with that as well. I'll compile a list of suggestions and we can discuss and vote.

We're all well aware that All Star Batman and Robin was off the wall, with its story of Batman making Dick Grayson, aged twelve, eat rats in the Batcave, The Goddamn Batman, Wonder Woman calling a man "Sperm bank", "Fast hands, my little Robin. Fast hands, big mouth" and Batman painted yellow for a meeting with Green Lantern.

Scott Snyder clearly took inspiration from this series when writing his own All Star Batman

Sometimes, life is a dungeon crawl. Sometimes, it's more of a match-three puzzle game. So ... what's it been for you today? What have you been doing?

— Thinking. Maybe a little, maybe a lot.
— Writing.
— Planning and / or researching.
— Editing.
— Sending things to the beta.
— Posting!
— Relaxing, taking a break, etc.
— Other stuff-ing. Look at the comment.

Question for today: On a scale of 1 to 10, how disgusted do you usually get with your first draft of a longer work?
