I just saw a post saying that American Apparel’s “Legalize Gay” Tee shirt is “bullshit” and “exclusionary”. They are combating this by producing a “Legalize Trans” shirt. HELLO it’s perfectly legal to go through the process of changing your sex. There’s nothing illegal about it. You are still part…
La Dispute will be touring as direct support to Thrice on the bands upcoming full US tour in support of Major/Minor (Thrice’s new album out 9/20 on Vagrant). Also on the tour are our good friends Moving Mountains and O’Brother. This is sure to be an AMAZING tour! Check out the tour dates…
There were lots of stories that came out of SDCC this year, but the one that has caught the attention of the comics community was a woman who dressed up as Batgirl to ask questions about female characters and creators at several DC Comics’ panels. I first became aware of her questions while following the live feeds of Newsarama and CBR. If you read this blog you know I have many of the same concerns she has. After seeing the reaction of some attendees and reporters about how her questions and those of others regarding female characters and creators were being handled, I compiled a post of that coverage.
That post has now become the most viewed ever for this blog. Her appearances at the panels has also generated other blog posts and many comments. She’s been called everything from a hero to a bully. But now for the first time we can hear from her.
Yesterday I caught up with Kyrax2, the “Batgirl woman” as she has become known, to find out more about what drove her to ask these questions and her thoughts on the reactions she received.
The city died long ago.
Scratches in the sky.
Gashes in the land.
We’ll wander about this place.
Leave the unfortunate to rot.
Their fate has met an unexpected end.
The night looks down upon us.
What will happen to us will happen to everyone.
Our mistake is what lead us to this state.
We’ve lasted through this long.
The morning is waiting.
But the sun will shun our arrival.
I’m not the best writer, but I do sometimes like what I say.
I’ve had this plan to write twelve or so ‘zombie ramblings’.
This is one of them.
I have five.
Seven more to go.
it was in this old house.
a huge house.
I was the murderer
I was defending myself in a house full of crazed flesh walkers.
In this dream I could hear every bone break
every gurgle or blood
every scream or yell
I could feel the bones break
fuckin’ intense, man.
Particularly, there was this one part where I grabbed this Asian person that was attacking me
they swung a knife at my face, but I ducked, grabbed him by the eye socket from behind
gouged his eye socket
I could feel his eyeball bursting.
Then I did some kind of sweep to his legs, using all of this to forcibly slam him to the ground.
I remember I could hear his skull breaking upon meeting the concrete.
It was intense.
…the his whole body started to bounce around like a basketball.
The physics when all fucking crazy. And I don’t know why.
I find my way out of the house, finally.
I walk outside looking like the wild west or some shit.
I look around for familiar buildings, something that tells me where I am
