Let's see if I can get this new origin straight...

1. My little sister is visiting from the Republic of Ireland. She was in a pub in Dublin, and a couple of people asked her what she was doing in Ireland, and she said: "I'm British. I've come to take your land." And then she had to go to the airport and flee the country immediately. Well, no. I mean, yes but no. She's on loan back to a Scottish university to work on a project she doesn't want to be on, for a senior academic that she doesn't much like, for a grand total of zero pounds sterling (something holding references and publications over her head something something.) Sometimes I think about the difference between having a job and having a career, and at the moment I think it's that when I have to do things I don't want to do, at the behest of people I don't like, I at least get paid for it.

On her first day back, she was on a bus where somebody threw a bicycle at the driver, who stood up and chased him down the street. And because she hasn't been living in Glasgow for a couple of years she considered this 'weird' and 'frighting', and not 'a good reason to be late for work' or 'a tuesday'. So I've been loaning her my car, and as my car is held together by string and happy thoughts (that, of course, being the other big difference between having a career and a job) I'd warned her to keep an eye out for any of the engine management lights coming on. Anyway, cue later that night when she called frantic because there was a light on the dashboard that wouldn't go off. It was the handbrake light. She hadn't let the handbrake off, and it was the handbrake light. I love her.

2. I have had Freya - ridiculous mostly labrador, much loved bane of my existence, and reason for getting out of bed on mornings when I just want to go nope - for three years now, and to celebrate my mum made her a birthday cake. Liver & kidney, which, yes, is as disgusting as it sounds. It's worth noting that I have passed thirty-four birthdays on this green Earth, and my mother has yet resisted any temptation to make me a birthday cake.

I've actually been having some behaviour problems with Freya. Earlier in the summer she was attacked by two Vizslas (a couple of stitches in her eyelid, a bad fright, and me nearly coming to blows with the owner.) But ever since then she's been determined to get her revenge in first with almost every female dog she meets.

In almost all respects I think dogs are better than people, but you can't explain female solidarity or internalised misogyny to a dog; then again, you can't explain those to most people, so maybe we'll call that one a draw.

And she's still a total pet with people, so.

3. It occurred to me that I'd never actually made use of the Netflix free trial. I watched Below Her Mouth (porn, basically), a bunch of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (the best hangover telly there has ever been or will be), two seasons of You Me Her (actually really good), a season and a half of iZombie (I thought the first season was awesome; during the second I thought that the joke that Liv basically becomes the person whose brain she'd eaten was wearing thin, and I didn't give a rat's ass about anything that was going on with Major.)

I tried the first episodes of Santa Clarita Diet (too gross) and One Day at a Time (too much laugh track) but nah.

But the bigger thing was that Netflix has half-assed its crackdown on vpns, so while you can't watch anything, you can see how much better the US version is, kind of killing any desire I had to shell out for the clearly inferior UK version.

4. I have been on this thing of writing for more exchanges in 2017, and honestly, I'm not sure this has been leading to my best work: Exhibit A: my contributions to [community profile] auexchange

And Jason 1.0

Saw some original art from this issue online and realisd I'd always meant to share the issue. It's a minor story in many ways, Doug Moench writing the first of a sort of two part story which isn't major or "important", but to share Don Newton pencils with Alfredo Alcala inks and Adrienne Roy colours, is always a pleasure.

One of the things I wanted to originally go for with this series was to create a kind of “myth from the future”—a science-fiction quest based on the classical Argonauts/Prometheus model. One of the cornerstones of that was the idea that some meaningful number would venture forth and one less would come back. Someone pays the price for stealing fire from Heaven, and there’s no shortage of likely candidates… -- Al Ewing

Lucky Luke is a humorous European comic series which serves as both a parody and an homage to the Westerns. Created by Belgian cartoonist Maurice De Bevere ("Morris", 1923-2001) in 1946, it was published as serials in several magazines (Spirou, Tintin, Pilóte, etc). When René Goscinny of Asterix fame took over co-writing duties, it raised the magazine's overall quality of text and made it a hit.

In the stories, cowboy Lucky Luke usually acts as a bodyguard to someone who will serve as the conductive thread of the narrative. The gags and mishaps will follow on until the objective is fulfilled at the end of the story.

It also used plenty of historical figures in its stories, such as Hanging Judge Roy Bean in the following book.

Don Rosa also featured Judge Bean in a story of his own, "The Prisoner of White Agony Creek".

Mod Post: Off-Topic Tuesday

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

Another devastating Category 5 hurricane, this time "Maria", has caused massive damage to Dominica, and is heading towards Guadalupe.

In what is either a bizarrely surreal end-of-season plot twist or, more worryingly, a normalisation of appalling behaviour, former White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer made an appearance at the Emmy's and was smooched by celebrities who would have been excoriating him a couple of months ago. Words fail.

Toys'R'Us in the US has filed for bankruptcy protection, which does not bode well for the huge chain of stores in America (Those stores abroad, like the ones in the UK and Australia are not directly affected as yet)

Sort of on-topic, Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men's latest episode is an interesting discussion of the intersection of politics and comics as it applies to the X-Men, perhaps mainstream comics most consistently politically active (if not always successfully) comic. Definitely worth a listen.

Aung San Suu Kyi is facing criticism for not speaking out against the apparent ethnic cleaning of Royhinga Muslims going on in northern Rhakine state of Myanmar.. The situation is complicated by the military being a distinct from the Government, and the balance of power being uneven, but it seems disappointing at best, that Ms Suu Kyi has not spoken against it.

The unholy offspring of political backstabbing and circle-jerking otherwise known as "the UK Brexit strategy" continues with Ministers contradicting each other, re-hashing old and outdated lies and an PM who can't sack the worst offenders because A) She can't risk the backlash, and B) It leaves her no one else to blame when the shit hits the fan come 2019.

The latest, and probably last, wave of Lego Dimensions figures came out, including Beetlejuice, Powerpuff Girls and Teen Titans Go. The existing LEGO Batman Movie Robin and DCU Cyborg figures assume their cartoon appearances when in the Adventure World, which is cute, and there is even one final use of the TARDIS docking port where we briefly see a Nightwing minifigure I'd really like, but will never. I think the lack of a unifying storyline, as they had in Year One, has not done the title any favours (nor has the ongoing cost of the assorted packs, despite it still being a fun licence-crossing game). And it does mean that the long rumoured Lord Vorton figure might never see the light of day.

And I'm a little behind on the news of the upcoming Miraculous Ladybug Season 2, including the number of new Miraculous holders we will see, such as Le Papillon/Hawkmoth's boss named... well that would be telling. :)

This video has serious spoilers about the identities of a number of new heroes, as well as a couple of new abilities for Ladybug and Chat Noir/Cat Noir, so be warned.

A late addition, but one worth mentioning (though I regret it has to be) is that the GOP are attempting yet again, to defund the ACA. Just in case those of you in the US want to let those who represent you know your opinions on the matter.

…and congress is trying to get rid of the ACA. Again. *swears under breath*

Irritatingly the abrupt changes in temperature (and humidity considering how dry my hands were a few days ago) means intermittent nosebleeds for me. ...and I just remembered mother is visiting this week, which means the next few days going to involve some amount of frantic cleaning.

The hummingbirds are still around! (although I never seem to have my phone nearby when I see them)

I’m really enjoying Dishonored: Death of the Outsider (and I’m thrilled Billie gets her own game!) There’s also going to be new Star Trek soon! (although I would prefer it actually aired on tv *grumbles about having to buy streaming services to see it*)
