My bird stands on one foot

Oh good, I can finally store all the random crap I find on the interweb. And also document day to day the goofy stuff my bird does. She's a green cheeked conure and an absolute brat, but she gets away with it because she's adorable.

I also have a blog about movies:

And a pretty ridiculous twitter:

I go here a lot:

And this will never, ever stop amusing me:

Ask me anything

I'm building an empire
I'm building with the stars in mind
I'm building an empire
That's one day gona scrape the sky

Happy Batman Day! A Few Words About Martha Wayne


Today is Batman Day, a day to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the character’s first appearance. A few weeks ago I asked people to name the female character they thought was “most important” to Batman. And while there were many people who name Barbara Gordon (Oracle version mostly), there were also others mentioned such as Cass Cain and Leslie Thompkins. But a lot of the answers were a woman who has gotten short shift in the Batverse - Martha Wayne.

Look, for a long time I really hated my name. It was old fashioned, kinda weird, more a name your aunt would have than you. But then I realized that two of the most important people in the pop culture world are named Martha (Martha Kent and Martha Wayne) and I realized that my name isn’t stuffy, it’s bad ass.

Recognize the awesome that is the mother figure, y’all. Who would Supes and Batman be without their Marthas?

That. Is. Awesome. Thank you, and here’s hoping lots of readers follow your lead, march into their local library and request IP books. Not only would library orders mean that you would be able to read them for free, but they would help these authors gain exposure with additional readers. Thank you so much!

NEVER BE AFRAID TO ASK YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY FOR BOOKS. Trust me: librarians WANT to get books for you. Even those smutty LGBT books. ESPECIALLY those books. Why? Because that means you’ll come back. And you’ll bring friends. Librarians are in the business of keeping their libraries open.

They are in the business of hooking YOU up with that book you want.

Want more POC books in your library? ASK! Want more LGBT books in your library? ASK! They may not be able to turn it around in a day, but they will fight for your right to read.


Okay, I’m pretty open about my fandom life, but I admit to being terrified at the idea of walking into my local public library in the southern US, where I frequently bring my kids, and requesting that they order a m/m romance novel.

Maybe I could go to a different branch…

If you don’t want to talk to a live person to fill out the suggest-for-purchase form, see if your library has online purchase requests. Mine does. You don’t even have to put your name on the suggestion. Then when the book’s on the shelf, check it out with a self-checkout station and you can literally go through the entire process without interacting with another human being.

But, y’know, librarians won’t like, ban you from bringing your kids if you pick up erotica at their branch. They’d lose 90% of their program attendance to 50 Shades of Grey if they did that. ;)

If you’re worried about librarians judging you, rest assured they already judge you for everything else you check out, whether it’s Dora the Explorer DVDs, Jonathan Franzen, or romance novels. You won’t escape their judgement, so you may as well own it with the stuff you judge yourself for, lbh.

Just go for it and order the books. If they have the budget for it, they’ll buy it. If they don’t, then you can always request it for Inter-Library Loan, or register for a card with a neighboring branch/system or go to the local college’s library—your checkouts will probably be limited because you don’t pay their taxes or fees, but most neighboring libraries are cool with nonresidents checking out books. (I have 6 different library cards.)

ALL OF THIS IS TRUE. We keep a running list of requests in my department and then at the end of the month (when we do our purchasing), if there’s room in the budget, we get it all. LIBRARIES WANT TO HAVE THE THINGS YOU WANT TO READ.

i don’t understand why people don’t instantly respond to “what would your dream superpower be” with the ability to manipulate probability.
think about it. what’s the chance someone will drop 1mil in front of me? 0%? let’s make that 100%. what’s the probability i’ll wake up tomorrow and be X gender? 100%. what’s the probability my bathtub is filled with mac and cheese? 100%.

as a casino employee I can confirm this would be terrifying as fuck

But look what happened to Scarlet Witch…
