Hello, true believers!  Well, things seem kinda dark in my country for a while, due to the recent election, so I thought I would post some of my favorite indy comics friends, and hopefully help spread some queer cheer (and maybe help them make some money while I'm at it).  All creators have given their consent for me to post what I have.

You guys might remember Laurel Lynn Leake--she went by [personal profile] meatwhichdreams and posted some of her Lady Gaga stuff back in 2010!  Well, I'm pleased to announce that she has since gone to comics school, got her comics degree, and continued making awesome work, which I am pleased to own.  This is from All Rumors Are True, her cracked-out drag porn thrillfest!
Mega-images behind the cut! )
You can check out the rest of All Rumors are True (plus the rest of Laurel's awesome work) HERE!  Give the girl some love, y'all!

Model-Checking for Analysis of Information Leakage in Social Networks has been accepted into the post-proceedings volume of the conference it was given at. The acceptance is notable, in particular, for the referees' comments which amount in all cases to "have dealt with previous comments more than sufficiently, nothing more to do" which is good in the light of how much time I don't have between now and the camera ready deadline.

Habit Trackers

I'm thinking of adding a habit tracker to my bujo. For those of you who use them, could you possibly post a pic or two? I'm trying to get a feel for how everyday people (versus Instagram superstars) use them on a practical, routine basis.

It doesn't matter if it's weekly vs monthly (or even daily!). I'm not wedded to format. I'm just trying to figure out what would work best for me, what I'd find useful to track, etc etc.

Thanks!

Turns out it’s not just me having racism and misogyny problems in Overwatch competitive. I saw Wil Wheaton reblog this article from mic.com about it, as well as this thread on the Reddit Overwatch forum, and yeah – it did get a lot worse in Season III.

And so far, nobody official seems to be doing much about it. And people doing it won’t stop until it hurts them, so I’m definitely going with my announcement and plan as a de rigueur thing before all competitive matches in Series IV.

Meanwhile, back in quickplay, I’ve started singing what I call the Tracer Tank song again, because Tracer is a tank in the right circumstances and the right levels. NO, SHE IS, REALLY. I have golded so many times for objective time as Tracer that it’s hilarious.

Tracer tank / Tracer tank
movin’ the payload
’cause somebody has to

where the fuck is Reinhardt?
where the fuck is D.va?
i could be that Reinhardt
if i really wanted

let’s all move the payload
i said everybody
okay fine I’ll do it
objective gold again

I mean, think about it. If you’re on offence in a payload level, and you’re good at her dodging motion/blinking/rewind, it works out to an effective hitpoint/armour total of easily 350 points, assuming only one rewind – much more if you’re lucky and good. I have beaten back one-on-three facedowns across the payload, more than once.

How does that work? Base health/armour of 150. Near-double that to 290 from your own health, doubled, with use of rewind. You get 10 points per second back from being on the payload; survive five seconds – not hard if you are good with her movement – and that’s another 100 points (with the single rewind), which gets you up to 390. Survive 10 seconds, that’s 490. Survive 15, 590.

Survive, oh, 2:09 like I did in one game last night as Tracer Tank? That’s 2580+300 hit/armour points (tho’ that assumes more rewinds, as it would), for a total of 2880.

Bulletproof. Reinhardt? Roadhog? Paper people.

And that’s not even getting into how the payload is functionally a motion-restricted shield with infinite hit points and infinite duration.

Tracer is a tank.

(Really, of course, Tracer shouldn’t be your group’s tank. For one thing, this whole shtick falls apart if they have a Sombra who knows what she’s doing. Even without that, it’s not Tracer’s best mode, and usually if I’m doing it, the team I’m on isn’t very good. But we all know the number of people that just won’t get on the goddamn payload, right? I was on one of those a couple of days ago where I literally solo-escorted the payload from Objective A to (just short of) the Eichenwald castle gate entirely by myself. It was hilarious.)

In news that is both awesome and probably terrible, WB/DC is talking about making a Nightwing movie.

If it's not two hours of dick jokes and gratuitous ass shots while Dick gets tied up and escapes repeatedly, preferably with strategically placed rips to his clothing, then I don't even want to know.

Two quarters, an eerie glass disk and a Kleenex that might have been rolled in a shoggoth.

Someone else found the underwire from a bra but I don't think it was near where I found my trove of artifacts. I feel confident nobody was removed from this space-time continuum while trying to harness forces beyond their ken, leaving behind only a few bits of flotsam to indicate they ever existed.

"It came out of the raft of superhero movies and all the origin stories they tell. It struck me that they all had the same setup: ‘in an ordinary world one person becomes extraordinary.’ So the natural thing to do is to twist that: ‘in an extraordinary world, one person is ordinary.’ A plague gives everybody on the planet very disparate super powers, all apart from one guy. He’s the most ordinary man alive, and he was very ordinary in the first place. From there it’s a story about finding something extraordinary inside yourself."

Entertainment Weekly confirm that the director of the hugely enjoyable LEGO Batman movie Chris McKay is being tipped to produce a live action Nightwing movie!!

He's more of an animation director so far, his track record including Robot Chicken, Moral Orel and Titan Maximum but based on LEGO Batman you can't deny he's prepared to have some FUN with the concept of costumed superheroes (which the DCCU is so sadly lacking, thought their TV shows seem to have gotten the hint).

Bill Dubuque (The Accountant) is set to write the script.

And as a bit of a teaser... perhaps! ;) )

1. Today was the last day of my vacation. I really enjoyed having the time off (even if the first part was spent recovering and was less pleasant), but I'm also looking forward to getting back to work again.

2. Today Carla had an eye appointment at the LensCrafters down by the Promenade, so we went down there a little early and had lunch at Chipotle first, then wandered over to Barnes & Noble, mainly to check out their toys and stuff rather than books. I got a Marceline Funko Pop and we bought a jigsaw puzzle, since we both agreed we'd like to start doing puzzles. The problem is figuring out a way to do them without kitty interference (especially Chloe, as she's likely to eat the pieces).

3. There was a new episode of Powerless today and it was pretty great.

4. Look at these sweeties! Too sweet for words.

good morning, it's 24 february 2017

Item 3 is the kind of thing that - were it to pass - means you should flee the state. No lie.

Item 21: what part of "trying to get the FBI to shut up about Russia" isn't obstruction of justice?

Item 24: Keep on eye on this. The plan may be to flood non-cooperative cities and states with ICE personnel, to the point where ICE presence is overwhelming. This will be where non-cooperation needs to go all the way down. There are several other ICE- and police-state-related stories today as well.

Washington State governor Jay Inslee is acting quickly to remind everyone 1) Fuck you, Trump, and 2) Washington State has its own civil rights protections that do include trans kids. (We're also ready to fight on legal marijuana, which the administration is now hinting it may try to stop.)

Item 4 involves more 'alterations' to reality - if they change the import/export numbers to be wrong, they can make the trade deficit look worse, and gain more support for trade wars. This is very bad, of course, but may well happen.

More on Milo's lies; a Muslim now-former staffer talks about leaving the Trump white house; Matt Schlapp was going to let neo-nazi and overt genocide planner Richard "One Punch [and down]" Spencer attend CPAC, but yanked his membership when people noticed; Trump refers to increased ICE action as a "military operation," which would be 192 kinds of illegal; the FBI is cold-calling Muslims in Seattle and calling it "outreach" but it's all kinds of intimidating; several notes from CPAC; it is UTTERLY INSANE that Trump's desire to RAMP UP NUCLEAR WEAPONS PRODUCTION isn't the lead story here and maybe it should be; more. Good luck.

It's February 24, 2017; this is the news )
