Where’s that person who was asking about Pretty Deadly…?

Reblogging this to the Pretty Deadly tumblr too, and I just want to say how grateful we all are (I know I speak for Emma, Jordie, Clayton and Sigrid here) when folks engage the book like this.  

Samantha, Michael, Sarah… I know there have been others.  In your work you give us a way to see our work as a thing separate from our construction of it (which, if I’m being honest, is how PD has always felt — more like discovery than creation).  That is such a gift.  

I’ve struggled a lot with whether or not read things like this for fear of being influenced by them. It’s in my programming to want to be a pleaser and I’m always afraid I’ll unconsciously vie for the attention or approval of people who comment on the work. I’ve talked about it before; it’s very dangerous territory.   

But now that volume one is complete, I feel somewhat safer.  

And… I dunno.  I just feel like ‘thank you for also caring about this weird little creature that we care about so much.’

You better believe I’ve got a monster of a post brewing for PD#5, because that comic has the depths of hades in it. It’ll show up in a couple weeks because I need to sort out how to talk about it, have some other stuff queued, and I want to crawl all over spoilers like a jerk. But yeah: that comic literally took me an hour to read and stove my head in. PD is a comic that is a pleasure to read and write about.

Are you Duran Duran or BSB? Heathers or Mean Girls? Grunge flannel or girly baby tees? This is what happens when sisters of two different generations — Gen X & Gen Y — talk about the things they love…as well as the stuff they don’t quite see eye-to-eye on. Get your copy here!

Ugh, what a trolly inforgraphic. When we talk about formative media from from my youth as a GenYer these diagrams ignore all of the 90s things that actually mean something to me. Like just looking at movies, The Matrix, Gladiator, Jurassic Park, The Big Lebowski, and Austin Powers were a much bigger deal in my peer group than anything other than Titanic. Also the notion that Gen Y wasn’t weaned on Star Wars is silly. And TV! No mention of Seinfeld, Friends, or Home Improvement. And the things they include in the 80s stuff: Ghost World and Infinite Jest? Yeah those were mainstream cultural cornerstones comparable with Harry Potter

Should I rewatch Star Wars in order of release or in story order?

I AM HERE FOR THIS QUESTION.

I’m about to blow your mind.

NEITHER.

Read More

This is a good idea AND a good read.

(My recommended order is 456. I never saw the prequels and I super don’t care.)

Kelly Sue DeConnick, summing up my feelings on Star Wars and its extended fandom in one sentence. 

(But seriously, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is one of my five favourite movies and the original movies are the one piece of typically-geek culture my spouse actually loves. And I’ve read like 40 odd Star Wars novels in my lifetime…. but yeah three worthwhile movies, some still beloved books, and sucks to the rest.)

Finish this sentence, please, in the manner that most fits you.

"I am a Fake Geek Guy because…."


Best answer will get a Prnigle.

Prnigle!

"I am a Fake Geek Guy because I enjoy watching and playing sports when I’m not reading comics or Sci-fi novels."

Oh god I feel this so hard

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAYEP. That. Fucking. Ribbon.

The fact that comic book spines aren’t treated with the same attention to detail as covers blows my mind. At home I mostly see spines on bookshelves, and in stores the majority of comics are visible by spines. It’s what you see 99% of the time, and when it’s done poorly it makes me crazy!

I would watch this cyberpunk heist film.

Infographic of Chew food powers Vol. 1-7

This is pretty cool! Would you mind if I forwarded it to Rob and Layman? They’d probably get a kick out of it!

Thanks! They’ve already seen it (via the twitters) and seem to like it. As long as what I’m putting out there isn’t too critical, I always appreciate it when the creators see the stuff I do.

The guy who asked you about speakers doesn't seem to accept Asks. He needs to talk to an actual person in his town. If he knows anyone in a band that's a good place to start, or go to guitar center & talk to them. There's too many variables to be able to give any advice based on what he said. Only music? Speeches? Size of audience? Height of ceiling? # of mics? How long is the room? He needs to find a person to stand in the room with him & evaluate. Sincerely, a vague audio engineer

word

I asked Mr. Matt Fraction mostly for laughs. I thought maybe I’d get some helpful advice, but more likely I’d get made fun of or something. (The actual answer was brilliant and kind of perfect for the moment. Thank you Matt Fraction.)

As to my actual speaker needs, well, your ask/answer is kind of representative of what makes speaker stuff so hard. Like, I get that good sound engineering is an art/science/magic and have nothing but respect for the folks behind mixing boards (I have been to concerts with horrible sound engineering, so really I appreciate it!) But! I am helping plan a small wedding reception on a budget that has an ipod for a DJ… so the objective of the evening isn’t concert quality sound. The goal is loud enough on the dancefloor so people can dance without feeling self-conscious and loud enough that a few short speeches can be heard by all. I’m just looking for some very general ballpark estimates because I am a square who knows very little about audio equipment. 

(A beginners guide to buying the right speaker started with an anecdote about how the author heard someone say they spent more on their stereo than their car. Which was then endorsed as a REASONABLE attitude because speakers are an INVESTMENT…. Which is about when I asked Mr. Fraction for advice.)

(The Room: 30fx60f, with a vaulted ceiling that is ~15f at its peak. (There is trestle-esque joists down the length that are likely just audio nightmares.) There are ~80 guests and 1 mic. (which might have its own integrated sound system at the venue…)

I bought a 2-channel 100w Amp, a pair of decent (I think) bookshelf speakers and an entry level subwoofer and just experimenting to see if they are loud enough.
