New Threat to Internet Users
In the ignoble tradition of SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA, the US government are trying to pass yet another bill that would undermine the entirety of the internet. This one is disgustingly labelled the ‘Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act’, but it’s not about that at all. It’s actually just a snooping act that has nothing to do with protecting anyone, least of all...
mazzyj replied to your post: This is why I stopped doing conventions. Hrm..are they like this because there is nudity, because there is sex, or because it’s men/men? Or all three? Because essentially they cannot get their minds around the fact that despite my being an artist, I don’t have a folder/binder with my work in it. This apparently broke their little minds because they have...
This is why I stopped doing conventions.
At least, this is one of several reasons I withdrew from all but a few shows and then, when my partner passed away suddenly, stopped doing the rest for several years. Rant follows… Regular visitors will remember the clear pictures of my table setup, which I provided to a show a group of people relatively close are trying to put together. I told them about my products, books and comics and...

Man, I just caught up on One Piece since I stopped reading a few years ago. I used to have respect for you, Oda. I expected a lot better. What a crock.
A few words about ACTA and all this business
I just wanted to mention here, to those who are reading, why this stand we are taking is important, why Indie March is important (something I’ve discussed earlier), and why this whole copyright snafuffle is actually something worth fighting to change. Basically, this whole ACTA deal, just like SOPA and PIPA and all of those, is about control. The companies want that unquestionable control,...

I’ve seen a lot of people pointing fingers at each other and being very contentious lately, and I’d just like to say my piece. It’s behind a cut so it doesn’t spam your dashboard. Today I would like to talk to you about privilege, and why it is proving to be a more divisive force than a unifying one. Pointing at someone and shouting ‘PRIVILEGE!’ is often the...

Why Indie March is Important
The reasons why we protest are many and various, but many of us resent the attempt to control and to censor our lives and, above all, the borderless cosmos that is the internet. There are many things I could say about my efforts to promote the idea of Indie March, rather than just an across-the-board Black March boycott on all entertainment. I completely agree that big media and big entertainment...
