Calculator!

If you're missing it -- and especially for those with kids -- the most fun happening in cartoons right now is Batman's Brave and the Bold on Cartoon Network. I love this show. It's somehow, oddly, impossibly satisfying for us adults, while being (gasp!) fun for the kiddos.


And the fact they're doing Calculator? (Newsarama) Oh me oh my. I don't even care if it's the original costume. That may be the best part. (See? Fun!) And if they call him Noah Kuttler, I will die. Right there. I will die and the real Noah will die too. It'll be amazing.




PS - In the video, his name is Myron. We live till the sequel.

To Start Your Day

I know Les Miz is so durn overrated.


I know this is just a promo for a TV show.


I know they're manipulating us with editing and music.


And I know their Paula is better than our Paula.


But boy, do I love this (YouTube).


I wish it for everyone.


Love and teddy bears to all.

1950s Us

Just a great article about movies and our past (and our future) [NY Times]. The opening sentence alone is worth it: “The past is a foreign country,” the novelist L. P. Hartley once wrote; “they do things differently there.”


Thanks to Scott Butki at Newsvine for the heads up.

Eisners

Just saw the Eisner nominations for this year. Especially excited by the love for Matt Wagner (one of my first pals in comics), and for Matt Fraction (who I don't know (tried to find him at the Eisners last year), but is easily one of my current favorites). Go read his X-Men annual. I haven't bought an X-Men annual since it was in a polybag. Easily one of the best stories of the year.

Birthday Love

Just a quick thanks for all the birthday love this week. Was a good week here -- working on the new novel, off to Kansas, back already. And lots of time to read what everyone wrote.


It matters. It does. Even at my most cynical, it matters.


So thank you.


Hugs and teddy bears.
