Where did you purchase your Batman hoody from (in your picture)? And is it still available? :)
I got that from Hot Topic a while back, they likely wouldn’t have it anymore. Though I actually saw some that look sort of similar on ebay just earlier today. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=batman+hoodie&_sacat=11450&_odkw=batman&_osacat=15724&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313
“It’s one thing to take pride in your work, and it’s something totally different to invest your ego into it. When your self-worth is determined by what other people think of your work, you’re doing it wrong. You have to be able to accept criticism on any level, even if it’s moronic. I take pride in what I create, but if someone doesn’t like it, that’s not a reflection of my work.”—Anonymous, and oh so true.
What sort of tips are you ladies at The Mary Sue looking for? By tips you mean article ideas or links right? I've given a few anonymous tips with links to things I thought were interesting, but no luck. Or is the tip button for monetary "tips" (because you can forget that, I'm broke.)
Haha, no, they are definitely for article ideas/links. Sorry if none of yours have wound up as stories yet. We may not have thought they were right for the site or already wrote about them etc.
I’ve written about this before, so this might be redundant to those of you who have been following my writing for a few years. But after some gender-related internet drama yesterday, it’s been on my mind again.
Yesterday, Jill Pantozzi, known to some as The Nerdy Bird, wrote about how Kevin Smith’s comic shop show (which she tried out for) decided to ditch the females and instead have a men-only cast (indeed, the title was revealed to be Comic Book Men). Smith later replied that he was saving the ladies for season two. But that’s not even what I want to discuss; it’s the reactions to her article that got me all riled up.
That’s a commercial for Axe body spray, something called Anarchy. What kind of cop needs a gun when you’re pursuing a criminal? Pft! Whatever, this is along the lines with their regular marketing. But then I saw this on Robot 6.
Axe is doing an interactive graphic novel where fans on Facebook and Twitter can help write the story, which is all about hot chicks (which looks like soft-core porn now and will probably be straight up porn by the time users are done with it). And who did I spot in this commercial? None other than Scott Lobdell.
Call the timing perfect or unfortunate. Axe Anarchy is making a comic book to promote their sexy, sexy spray and Lobdell just happens to be one of the creators on the project. I can’t find confirmation of this anywhere online but sources have told me that this is indeed Lobdell. Yes, the creator who made us so angry last year with his new take on DC Comics’ Starfire in Red Hood and the Outlaws. Oh the irony.
You can seriously wear them like 200 to 250 times in a row before you have to consider a toss to the laundry basket. And even then, you don’t need to wash them. It’s just a kind of nice way to treat them after almost a year’s worth of dedication.
The only thing that screwed this equation up is when you would hang out at a smoky bar. When you got home, everything reeked. Your jeans, your shirts, and your hair. It was awful.
I don’t smoke, but even my friends who did smoke hated leaving a bar while still smelling like one.
Thankfully, New Jersey and many other states banned smoking while you were inside a bar. It was one of the last places left that you were allowed to smoke indoors. Thirty years ago, though, you could smoke just about anywhere. And it seems ridiculous now to have ever been able to smoke in some of those places.
