Our new theme is “Sugar Rush.” What does it make you think of? If food, what kind of food gives that rush? Or what about drinks?


And/or, is it more than food….what else in life fills us up but ultimately leaves us empty?


Share your thoughts, poems, images with us….

I liked this one. Set in Paris, the story from a cheating husband's point of view. Props to Maum for writing like (I think) a man would write. Also props for some really deep gems on the philosophy of why long-term relationships work, and how they en ...more

"Mild spoilers: So I've generally found this to be the weakest of the New 52 Batman lines, but Mad Hatter was a marvelous villain. His whole concept could have run cheesy or stupid; instead his history informed his present psychosis beautifully and..." Read more of this review »

What It Is by Lynda Barry
"This collage /mixed media graphic novel is usually the type of book that thrills me, chills me and lights my fire.

I have no idea why there is no spark, if it were an ex-boyfriend I would whine "but we look so good together on paper..." By the end..." Read more of this review »

Part graphic novel, part memoir, part writing prompt guide, this book is a treasure of many kinds of art in one. As inspiration, it's tops. As aesthetic assault, it's also tops. I really enjoyed it.

But I did have this nagging feeling I often get whe

Virginia Woolf
“Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.”
Virginia Woolf

Neil Gaiman
“You don't get heaven or hell. Do you know the only reward you get for being Batman? You get to be Batman.”
Neil Gaiman, Batman: Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?

Kay Redfield Jamison
“I decided early in graduate school that I needed to do something about my moods. It quickly came down to a choice between seeing a psychiatrist or buying a horse. Since almost everyone I knew was seeing a psychiatrist, and since I had an absolute belief that I should be able to handle my own problems, I naturally bought a horse.”
Kay Redfield Jamison, An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness

Kay Redfield Jamison
“The rites of passage in the academic world are arcane and, in their own way, highly romantic, and the tensions and unplesantries of dissertations and final oral examinations are quickly forgotten in the wonderful moment of the sherry afterward, admission into a very old club, parties of celebration, doctoral gowns, academic rituals, and hearing for the first time "Dr.," rather than "Miss" Jamison.”
Kay Redfield Jamison, An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness

Grant Morrison
“Because it all derived from Superman. I mean, I love all the characters, but Superman is just this perfect human pop-culture distillation of a really basic idea. He's a good guy. He loves us. He will not stop in defending us. How beautiful is that? He's like a sci-fi Jesus. He'll never let you down. And only in fiction can that guy actually exist, because real guys will always let you down one way or another. We actually made up an idea that beautiful. That's just cool to me. We made a little paper universe where all of the above is true.”
Grant Morrison

Gabriela thanks for turning me onto this site, mish. i've obviously been a little busy trying to think of the books i've read in the past few years. very fun. i read a lot! :) anyways, i can't wait to start browsing your suggestions and others' to find my next 'good read.' i'm rereading 'the fountainhead' now and that'll keep me busy for a bit but the stuff on my shelf doesn't really entice me. i'm going to have to find a copy of 'mists' soon so we can chat about arthurian stuff! any fodder for our assignments on here?


Stephanie Hey! Thanks for the invite! Maybe I'll actually be motivated to start reading my stacks of books!
