I’m ABSOLUTELY THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE that we’re having a launch party and fandom meet-up in honor of the BROOKLYN zine!! A few weeks ago, I got an e-mail out of the blue from the phenomenal Chloe (reserve) offering to throw us a party! I have never been so stoked before in my life. She and I got together, and ever since we’ve been hard at work hammering out the details for what is sure to be the fandom get-together of the year! And now we’re telling you!!
WHEN? SEPTEMBER 20, 5PM-7:30PM
WHERE? WORD BOOKSTORE @ 126 FRANKLIN ST, BROOKLYN
WHAT’S GOING ON? Artist Q&As! An information session about how to run your own fandom zine! Copies of the BROOKLYN zine for sale, as well as prints, posters, and other cool stuff! Drinks and snacks! Meet a bunch of cool fandom people and talk about how upset Steve & Bucky make you!!
ALSO, THERE’S MORE! Free all day that Saturday? Good, come hang out with us!! Meet us at 1PM at Transmitter Park for a picnic potluck: bring something to share!
THAT’S NOT EVEN ALL! After the launch, at 7:30PM, we’ll be moving to Broken Land Bar to drink our feelings!
Mark your calendars, and if you’re planning on coming, RSVP here to let us know! And tell your friends! I can’t wait to see you there!!
You can’t even fathom how unbelievably psyched I am about this. It is going to be a fan meet-up FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS. Come hang out with us.
Though I can’t make it there in person, I am there with you in spirit, in the BROOKLYN of my soul. D:
We get it Fenris. You really hate mages.
I might sell this at a con? I don’t know that anyone else would find this as amusing as I do, though XD

It’s a toss-up between From Earth I Rose by Amorphis (which I always considered my personal mantra, as the song is a riddle about iron) and Gravity by A Perfect Circle (which is the song that saved my life).

This Knife Is A Metaphor. It wasn’t suppose to be, but apparently it is.
I did this still life for a watercolor class more than a year ago, then showed it yesterday as part of a review to get my thesis approved. When this image came up, both of the men on my review panel suddenly looked very uncomfortable. After a long pause, one of them finally blurted, “Why is the tip of the knife being cut off by that shadow?”
"Because that was how it looked in the set-up." I said, a little confused.
"But why?" he demanded. I watched his face as his concern became outrage. I didn’t understand the question. Did they want me to make up some deep, esoteric answer? Something like,
The tip of the knife is cut off because it represent the impotence of the patriarchy in a modern context.
The tip of the knife was cut off because that’s how the shadow was falling. But then I realized—
They were offended—so very offended—because that’s what they thought my intent was. That little shadow falling over the tip of the knife, dulling it’s edge… It was obviously so psychologically disturbing to them. The mere idea of even an inanimate object being emasculated infuriated them.
That’s not what I meant.
But it is now.
