Comics Woe

The Alan Moore Fan Site quotes Kevin O’Neill on LXG (no, I haven’t seen it yet, and likely won’t until I come across it in a Video Rental Emporium someday):

Also, O’Neill gave his thoughts on the film, currently in theaters, based upon the series he and Moore created. He “actually liked” it. “We knew for a year that they weren’t adapting the comic,” says O’Neill. “They just bought the premise.”

Meanwhile, rumours that Moore’s ABC line will fold all lament the loss of Top Ten and hope that League will indeed continue, but no mention is made anywhere of Promethea, one of the best books I’ve read in a long, long time, and currently the only serial I still purchase on an issue-by-issue basis as opposed to in collected graphic novel format.

It’s personal, isn’t it.

I thought so.

Insomniac Again

Well, after a week of sound sleeping, I’m back to the very-awake-at-night situation. Sigh.

I’ve tried the warm baths, the warm sedative herbal tea, gentle music, blah blah blah. More light, less light. Big pillow, small pillow. Cats, no cats. I really, really don’t want to get hooked on the sleeping pills my doctor prescribed in case of extended sleep deprivation. So naturally I’m probably under-using them. Whatever.

Fashion Police

To the large woman who walked past me on her way to the specialty grocery store:

You may not ever wear a floral pattern with stripes. Not even if they’re both small prints. Not even if they’re both the same black-and-white scheme.

You may not. Verboten.

The end.
