Here's a list of all of the muses I have, and where I've played them, if anywhere. I tend not to get too many of them, but every so often a new one pops out of nowhere. I'll try to keep this list as up-to-date as possible, but given my previous track record with this... no promises.

I'm working on new icons for my Damian journal, and this is the result. Icons are from Batman and Robin 16-22, and Batgirl 17. The two fanart pieces are from here and here.

Huh, so I just found out that the group that made my profile code deleted their journal--and the images that made up my profile box.  That kind of sucks.  I wonder what happened--I really like their designs.

Anyone know any good profile code/layout communities? Found a nice one by [livejournal.com profile] noveltybox 

In other news, my paid subscription ran out.  It's spectacularly bad timing, as it ran out pretty much the day I was furloughed for a month, so I have no real disposable income to renew it.  I guess I'll just have to wait until August.

Thank you New York, for finally doing something positive in that senate chamber. I've grown so used to you just sitting there bitching at each other, but you can actually get stuff done if you want to. Some of you conservatives can even see past your own views to vote for the right thing.

Thank you, for giving me some sort of hope for my government again.

Thank you for voting for marriage equality.

I was curious, with DC claiming their new line would be modern and diverse, just how diverse their releases have been so far, so I broke them down.

Note: Certain characters (like Deadman) I listed as white, as he was white before he died.  Same with Swamp thing and Frankenstein.  Feel free to argue with me on them.  And I have Batman in Parenthesis because he's in like 80 different covers.  I listed him once, then in parenthesis from then on, so the original number represents how many different characters there were, while in the parenthesis shows how many total were depicted on covers.

 

So how diverse were they? )


If you know the names of these characters, or if I mislabeled someone, please let me know.

So I've been following the reboot/relaunch whatever thing of DC's, but it became hard for me to keep track of all the titles they were coming up with.  For my ease and for everyone else, here is the complete list of the announced DC titles with their covers, writers, artists, and blurbs.  The GL Corps, Red Lanterns, and The New Guardians never released their #1 covers.

The big list under the cut )
redconfession: ([DC] Pimp Damian)
So my immediate reaction was "wow, this is going to bite them in the ass" followed quickly by "DC never learns, do they?"  But now that I've had a few days to mull it over and read the releases and such since, I think I've settled on a reaction.  I feel jipped.  I haven't been into DC as long as I have Marvel (not that I've been into either very long), but I've been reading a lot of current and older issues and developed a lot of feelings for certain characters.  A lot of these characters have been released in the last five years, and they seem to be the characters DC is going to dump as soon as they hit the redo button.  This seems to be especially true for the batfamily.  Cass had already been cast aside by the DC writers for years before FINALLY being brought back...  Almost to inevitably be tossed aside once again, as they give roles to the old favorites.  Same will go for Damian, and Steph, who are finally finding their stride in their respective titles.  The Secret Six isn't one of the most popular titles DC has, and although it has a strong fanbase, it's not that large.  That and DC doesn't seem to be fond of anything other than happy or self-deprecating superheroes, they'll probably get dumped too.  DC has always hated Jason Todd, and since they brought him back they have had no idea what to do with him, so he will inevitably get tossed again too.  No official word on Jaime, but as DC keeps claiming to be "diversifying," he should be all right.  Same with Gavril who appears to be on the new JLI team.  God knows what they'll do to Booster.

Basically, it makes me wonder why I've invested in these characters at all, since they plan on redoing everything anyway.  Why should I bother picking up any issues until September?

And why announce the JLI at the end of Generation Lost at all if it's all part of their bold new reboot/launch/whatthefuckever?
redconfession: ([999] The Axe)
So I've watched Lady Gaga's new Judas video twice now and I have to say, I'm mildly insulted by it.  I'm not up in arms in a rage about it, but I do find it completely disrespectful to the Christian church.  Before I go any farther in this rant I will say three things: I am happily agnostic, was raised Roman Catholic, and do not agree with many of the church's teachings.  That being said, I have Christian friends who are religious, and I respect both them and their beliefs (for the most part).  I am also a fan of Lady Gaga, though she has been getting on my nerves lately for being a little too full of herself.  Now that full disclosure is over, onto the point:

Prior to the video I didn't find fault with it.  The word Judas has come into the English vernacular to mean someone's weakness ("you're my Judas"), and using Jesus' name in the way she did works into the song as a metaphor.  That being said, you can listen to the lyrics without having to take it as some sort of religious statement.  Although I wasn't the biggest fan of the song itself, I didn't understand the controversy that surrounded it as being anti-christian.

Then I saw the video.

The religious connotations (to me) as so beyond blatant.  The bikers have the names of the apostles on their backs for crying out loud.  Their leader has a bedazzled crown of thorns.  Then there was the matter of that overdrawn baptism or what have you water scene.  Without the religious symbolism I feel like the music video would have worked just as well (though I'm sure there will be people who will disagree with me, but this is my opinion).  My problem with it is this--why is it whenever someone basically parodies or twists the beliefs of the Christian and Catholic church, it's considered edgey or cool, but if it were any other religion there would be protest from all sides?  If the music video had been designed around Islamic or Jewish tradition, this would be a more wide-spread uproar.  Oh sure, there will be some news publicity about it and how it's anti-Christian and what have you, and FOX News is already having a field day, but it will die down by the end of the week (though FOX News may keep talking about it for months because it's FOX News and they really don't have enough to talk about).  But was the video about any other religion (technically western religion, as the west seems to not believe the eastern religions are real religions), the outcry would be much, much louder and less socially acceptable.

So why don't we hold Christian teachings to the same level of respect that we do other religions?  Yes, some of the Christian zealots are crazy, but theyr'e just that--zealots.  There are zealots of every group, regardless of age, gender, creed, religion, or sexual orientation.  We can't allow our hatred or annoyance of them to influence our feelings on the religion as a whole.  If it's because we as agnostics or atheists don't agree with their teachings that's fine.  We're all entitled to our opinion, and we're certainly entitled to not agree with them.  But who gives us permission to mock, lampoon, or parody it?  Christians value the teachings, even if we believe it's nothing more than fairy tales or modern myths.  It's our job to respect their decision to practice their religion just as it is theirs to respect ours.

TL;DR - Respect other people's religions, even if you don't believe in it yourself.  It means something to other people, and its not your job to take it away from just because you think it's a load of shit (just as it's not their job to take your choice not to believe from you).

So I got Okamiden pretty much the day it came out, and 25 hours of game play later...  I officially beat it.  OMG that game <333.  It was like an overdose of cute.  The character designs were adorable, the art was gorgeous, and the storyline was fantastic.  I'll admit, I was skeptical in the beginning as the game was riddled with spelling errors, and then later on as the plot started to go in what seemed like a completely different direction, but it managed to completely tie itself together in the end to make a very enjoyable story.  Cut for major spoilers )  My biggest complaint with the game was the spelling errors, as well as the fact that the brush strokes didn't always work correctly, even though I know I was doing them right.

And now that I've finished with that, I've moved onto Pokemon White.  Holy crap this game is Pokemon for grown ups, isn't it?  Everything just seems more mature for a Pokemon game, and the whole "liberation" theme is also aimed more for my generation than the hoardes of kiddies I sold the game to.  I'm also beginning to think I need a PhD to figure out how the hell the C Gear works, because just looking at it makes my brain explode.  Bianca and Cleven or whatever are kind of annoying, but I like the idea of having friends instead of rivals, kind of like in Ruby/Sapphire with that blonde kid.  And then there's the "you can only catch Gen V Pokemon until after you beat the Elite Four."  I really like this idea.  I know that a lot of people seem not to, but so far the Pokemon I've seen are beyond adorable (I decided to go into this blind without looking at the Pokemon in advance) and it means that I never have to see another Geodude in my life for a long, long time.

After a lull in awesome Gavril moments...  Justice League: Generation Lost 21 came out. And so I bring you these awesome moments in picspam form.

Hey guys!  I'm still alive!!

Just wanted to let you know that I'm here and try to read through my f-list once a day.

Basically, I've been very caught up in playing at [livejournal.com profile] hellpointe  (which is easily my fav LJRP ever, not that Ive been in many) and between that and work I have no time for anything else.

HOWEVER I will try to be more active, and I love you all.

So last night I did part one of my Gavril picspam, which basically covered his origins and introduction to the group.  Now I move on to the second and final part, where Gavril gets his chance to shine.

Warning: Image Heavy )
redconfession: ([DC] Damian lazers)
I recently got my Gavril into [livejournal.com profile] hellpointe , and as a result I decided to go back and picspam Gavril's appearance in Justice League: Generation Lost.  He's quickly becoming my favorite character in DC (under Damian) and he's just too adorable to not share with the world.

For the uninformed: Justice League: Generation Lost is a 25 issue mini-series (as of today there are 19 issues out), following various members of the old Justice League International (plus two new legacy characters to take the places of members who died).  It begins with Maxwell Lord, former financer and technical founder of the Justice League International, came back to life.  Which sounds like a good thing, only in the years leading up to his death, Max snapped and tried to kill the entire metahuman population.  After murdering Ted Kord (the second Blue Beetle) in cold blood and causing a reign of terror with both his mind control abilities (yes, the man who wants to kill the metahumans is himself a metahuman) and his metahuman-hunting cyborgs, the OMACs, Wonder Woman snapped his neck and killed him.  In order to accomplish some as of yet unknown goal, Max uses his abilities to make the entire world forget who he is.  Everyone, except for Fire, Ice, Captain Atom, and Booster Gold.  Through "mysterious" circumstances they meet both Jaime Reyes (the new Blue Beetle), and Gavril Ivanovich (the new Rocket Red) and their team is complete (well they get Power Girl later on but shhh).
