First, I have to pay my respects to Satoshi Kon. Miyazaki is awesome, but Satoshi Kon fucking blessed the world of good, experimental, fantastical anime.
Next, (some of) my comic book scores over the summer, with no authors listed because I don't know all of them (also, with almost no dent made in):
House of Mystery 3&4
Scott Pilgrim (finished)
Ball Peen Hammer
Spooked (read. Nice story. Awesome art)
WE3 (read this last night. Really good, but also hard to take due to the graphic animal cruelty).
And some others I got for free, or picked up on a whim, like the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies gn.
Novels and stories I intend to read (some before school starts, and some as required reading for Horror Lit):
Cirque du Freak
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Breakfast of Champions
Shadows Over Innsmouth
The Call of Cthulhu
The Conqueror Worm
And other tales.
On Saturday (and Monday), I said goodbye to one of my best friends (this time, not to death). My friend Kevin, who I met in Tony Vinci's writing class, is moving on in his pursuit in greatness in film, and going to NYC to the NYC school of my choice- SVA (School of Visual Arts), where stop-motion animation is taught by *shock* none other than my love Voltaire. Anyway, Saturday was the big last stand party. There were fireworks. Real fireworks! I've never been so close to those big bursting flowers, and I got closer still, because a couple of them went off too soon (extra thrilling). On Monday, I went over to his apartment to help him get out, and then unloaded the boxes to his folks' house (to later load into a different truck to take to NYC). I loved spending the whole day with him. We work off each other pretty well. I'm going to miss that.
What else... I made awesome raspberry flavoured meringue puffs with white chocolate. I sliced my hand open. I got food poisoning from bad sushi. I visited my sister, her guy, and my niece (well, they came here to visit me). I dyed my hair bright red. I got my school books.
And now I'm going to go to bed, then wake up and hopefully find that FreakAngels has updated after a 3-week hiatus while poor, wonderful Paul Duffield was hospitalized.
Instead of hording you with all the awesome stuff I've found online, I will leave you with two things:
BOTH NSFW, one due to maggotty, rotting, zombie cock dildos, and the other due to the F word
