I Run The Spectrum Of Variety.  
Two things of widely varying degrees.

1) Did you guys know that the Venom costume was actually fan-art that ended up purchased by Marvel? A fan drew it up as an alternative costume for Spiderman and Marvel contacted him and asked to buy it. They bought it for $220 in the early 80s and then decided to use it as the costume for Venom, one of the most popular Spiderman super-villains ever.

I just love the idea that a piece of fan-art turned into one of the greatest comic book characters the Marvel universe has ever known!

2) Just when I think I’m done with Disney, they pull me back in!

Because this is wonderful.


Crap! It’s bad luck to end on an even number…

3)…So, here is an awesome little thing The BFF sent me awhile ago. You draw a stickman and then watch him go on an adventure. No artistic skills required - it’s a stickman! I played this with The Nephew once and it entertained us for like a half hour. We just kept playing it over and over. I had forgotten until just now that when The BFF sent this to me, she did the option to program in the words at the end of the dragon adventure and her message to me was, “Rockin With Kane!” She knows me so well! I have programmed a little message for all of you into this link. But don’t forget, when you are done, you can go back to drawastickman.com and play the other adventure there as well! Go On A Stickman Adventure!

I had that same thought! $220, even 30 years ago, is not very much money. Especially considering the money Venom has brought in over the years for Marvel - issues featuring him fly off the shelves.

Disney randomly pisses me off (most recently over a friend's firing) but then they pull things like this video out that remind me why I love them. That video just really gives young girls some good messages.

You're very welcome! Stickman is so awesome! I think I want to get the complete app for my IPad.

Love the stickman, thanks for sharing!

You are very welcome! I seriously could just play the stickman over and over - I have to get the full app so I can go on the grand adventure!

Love that Stickman adventure! What fun.
dodger_sister: smiledodger_sister on March 12th, 2013 11:03 pm (UTC)
Wasn't it just so much fun?! The Stickman never gets boring. I can't wait to have The Nephew in again so we can 'rediscover' it.

I drew a puppy and it worked just as well!

Omg, I hadn't even thought of trying that! I'm going to have to now. Good idea! :)

Hey, I watched most of your show tonight, Lost Girl. You didn't tell me there was girl kissing! The (I think) evil blonde girl in leather kissed the good (I think) brunette girl in leather. I like girl kissing!

You didn't tell me there was girl kissing!

Didn't I? Oops. But...I told you it was about a succubus! I thought boy-kissing, girl-kissing, threesomes, orgies, gratitious sex scenes were all implied by the fact that the lead is a succubus! I guess three seasons in I don't even think about it anymore, which is kind of sad, now that I've said it out loud.

I'll tell you another reason to watch the show, which I am sure you discovered last night...Bo's boobs! Aren't they magnificent? Just, seriously, that is some nice chestage she has going on.

The (I think) evil blonde girl in leather kissed the good (I think) brunette girl in leather.

Hmmm, now you have me curious! Bo is the brunette and she is good and her girlfriend is a blonde but she is a human doctor (so also good then I guess) and then there is a cop who is a blonde chick but she is bad fae - so now I am like, "Wait, who is Bo making out with this time?" Oh right, everyone - Bo makes out with everyone! But Kenzi is still my favorite. Was the black guy in the episode? He is my other favorite and he hasn't been around much this season and I need more Hale!

Uh, yeah, I don't get to watch the episode until Friday usually because we wait for The BFF. It's a group show watch.

You know, you can stream the first two seasons through netflix. /hint hint/

No, it wasn't her doctor girlfriend (which I also had to look up) it was the Dark Fae sexy blonde who kissed Bo (or, Beau, technically, since her name is Isabeau). Maybe that's a spoiler then I guess, sorry! I actually like that Trick guy.

I don't have Netflix streaming, only the discs because it was too damn expensive for both and most of the stuff I want to see is on disc.
dodger_sister: lost girldodger_sister on March 14th, 2013 12:03 am (UTC)
I have now watched it and yep, she kissed the bad fae! I kind of liked that actually. I was a big Bo/Lauren shipper for a long while there, but I am starting to think more and more it's time for Lauren to move on. And the new chick, I didn't like her at first (I mean, she is bad fae after all) but she has really grown on me lately.

Maybe that's a spoiler then I guess, sorry!

Nah, don't worry about it. Unless you tell me 'so-n-so died!' I don't really care about spoilers for Lost Girl (or hardly any of my shows, outside of spoilers about someone dying, I don't care). I suppose if you had told me Kenzi & Hale (who weren't even in the episode anyway!) made out, I would be upset to know that ahead of time, since I've been waiting for like ever for that to happen (even though it's one of those friendships that I don't think actually should get together, I still kind of want them to get together, you know what I mean?) I can't believe you finally watched an ep of Lost Girl and my two favorite peeps weren't even in the episode!

I actually like that Trick guy.

Yeah, I love Trick too! I love him so much - it's one of those weird confusing things were Idk if I want him to adopt me or marry me. ;)

I don't have Netflix streaming,

Well, you can get it on discs too, I am sure, but watching a tv show take so long when you have to do it that way. Lost Girl is good mainlined into your vein on a rainy Saturday.

That stickman thing is freaking cool and I just spent way too much time with it.

Isn't it so much fun?! I think I have to download the stickman app and go on the grand adventure now! But oh yeah, it does time-suck you, cuz you just can't stop playing it. lol
