If you don’t already know about Giordano Bruno – look him up. An absolutely fascinating man.

I keep getting told that life is not black and white, that I can be too judgmental – that things are not that cut and dried. That the Good is not discrete. That the Good and the Bad hold hands, that they blur into a vague grey. Crap. Actually, life looks grey because it’s made up of many black and white dots. Like dots on a newspaper. Black and white events, black and white moments. Moments where you do what’s right, and moments where you do something recklessly selfish, or moments where you stand by and let something happen. Just because there are a lot of those moments, doesn’t mean we’re any less responsible for choosing the side we’re with at that moment. If we confuse issues, then we’re out of focus, and rather than see all the black and white moments, we see a blurred continuum of maybe’s and greys. When we do that we are shirking our...

Buffy: “Liar.”

From Season 2, Episode 7 “Lie To Me.”

I am sick of Grant Morrison. My exposure to comics has lessened over the years. I’ve been living in Egypt, so unless I download the occasional scan or buy the trade paperbacks from Amazon, I don’t get to read as much as I used to. Still, when I travel, I spend ridiculous sums of money on buying comics and catching up. Lately, I ‘caught’ up again, after traveling and spending far too much at a particular comics shop in Austria. First of all, I was SHOCKED by the ridiculous amount of titles written by Grant Morrison. I just didn’t get it. It was as though DC had given Morrison a monopoly on it’s titles. Half of the books in the shop were written by Morrison. I just don’t get it. How many books does this guy write/month? Also – he’s just not very good. He’s WAY too busy trying to be ‘cool’ and ‘awesome’ and ‘controversial’ to even know what a good story is. I was lucky enough to run...
