Michael Flatley's BLACKBIRD: The Leaked Script TELL NO ONE. BLACKBIRD: Man, it sure is hard running this luxurious nightclub when you used to be a secret agent when the two things have nothing to do with each other. Oh, hello, old flame. OLD FLAME: I bring mystery and danger. Now kiss me, because you are so much more handsome than me. BLACKBIRD: But I love you anyway. OLD FLAME: You were always too good for me! BLACKBIRD (chuckles affectionately): I know. OLD FLAME: Let's dance like we used to! Let's dance the night away! (Long pause. A very sad Blackbird sits, tries to find the right words)
BLACKBIRD: You know I can't dance...not ever again. OLD FLAME: OH BLACKBIRD! BLACKBIRD: Not...not since... (reveals his iron feet; guitar by Paul McCartney begins flashback montage) SPOILER: The feet are actually tap-triggered machine guns ___________________
Democrats Have to Realize Incivility in Defense of Humanity is No Vice
This is what the Democrats have to relearn. They understood this once, back when they won more regularly. They played dirty. Because it was fucking worth it. Just look at 30s or 40s Democrats. They weren't looking to make nice with the Republicans because they knew the GOP had failed the country.
If you're afraid to get nasty and mean in the defense of human rights, or the environment, or democracy, or any of the other targets of Trump, you're just in love with your self-image as a nice person but don't really mean it. The point is not to see who the noblest loser is. The point is to win so you can protect these things. Even if it means you personally have to be not nice. One has to get one's hands dirty. One can wash them afterward. Or wear gloves.
They act like they have to petition the GOP for the right to have power, like the GOP is the arbiter of this. They've let them set the rules and kept themselves defensive. It has to stop. It won't because Pelosi has a death grip on her power. Pelosi, who treated the Ocasio win on Tuesday with disdain at best. That said a lot.
This started with Clinton basically admitting that Republican ideas were more practical. That was when the playing field was mistakenly ceded to them. That was what was necessary to win at that moment, but it cost much. From that point onward, it was an issue of what they would allow, like they were parents. Yes, hope and change and all that. But hope is a cruel lie without a reason for it, and change cannot occur without power. To get the power, you have to grasp the nettle.

let's see our ticket, hmm...Hillary Clinton or Dracula
Hm, I thought she was a little arrogant once, not in any way that offended me but might offend white working class voters and that's bad
I guess I won't vote. Let's see what Dracula does
That was every single Bernie supporter who smugly sat out the last election. Every one of those was a passive voter for Trump. They could live with that outcome. Their consciences, they said, were clear. Read more »

Lulu: Erdgeist Chapter 5 p. 87 (5) - Free Till the Next One, @Patreon! Newest LULU page at Patreon, free till...the next one, as I haven't enough pledges to make more time for this, I'm afraid.

Your wait is over! The new chapter of LULU is all drawn now, and the greys are in progress. I will be releasing the pages via Patreon as they're done--not necessarily on a weekly basis like at MartianLit, but each, like this, will be free for a week after release. More details there. Click on panel to read the first page now!
By the way, I posted quite a lot--well, all--of this in progress as I was going, though I haven't bothered to post that here. So if you're interested, all the posts with the "In Progress" tag. Free except the final inked/lettered ones, before the greys, which are patron-only. But you can see all the stages till the lettering is on it, from pencils to inks. Of course, to unlock every one of those (and a lot more) only takes a $1 pledge...
You make more pages. No matter what you lose, no matter who comes and goes. You make more pages. No matter how long it takes you, steadily every day. You make more pages. Even if nobody cares. Even if nobody bothers to read any of it. Even if none of it seems to matter. You make more pages. Because if there are no pages, it never will matter, either.

I AM SICK OF TIME TRAVEL, TIMELINES, AND PARALLEL WORLDS IN POPULAR FICTION AND DRAMA. Sick to fucking death of it. It ate mainstream comics and trapped both Marvel and DC in a cycle that will never end, and has made its way into TV too. Twin Peaks, the Flash, more. Why are we attracted to this idea? Read more »
I'm gonna get blasphemous here. I call shenanigans on the resolution to the new TWIN PEAKS. I love Lynch. I am used to Lynch. I am used to abstruse and like it. And if everything had been properly resolved I guess it wouldn't feel like Lynch so there's really no way to win. But do NOT respond to this with a "you just don't get Lynch"--oh yes I fucking do. He's a foundation stone of inspiration for my own work. Nor say "you must be used to Hollywood plotting"--I fucking hate Hollywood plotting. I avoid most mainstream product. I have watched Lynch since I was 12 and the Elephant Man came out. I'm in the cult, of the cult. But.
