I'm reviewing the Silk Spectre part. I'm a fan of the artist, Amanda Conner. I thought it was well done, if somewhat depressing. But I feel like these Before Watchmen comics have higher aspirations then the regular monthly comics. It uses a lot of th...more

Tamahome and 6 other people liked Lee's status update
Lee is 85% done with Sun of Suns: Well, that is kind of thought provoking and scary. Imagine if you will a sword fight in zero g. Your object is not necessarily to stab your opponent, more to get them off handhelds so they can't leap to another point. Once you have them away from a hand or foot point, they are suspended, hanging like a ripe pear on a tree. You then get to push off at what ever angle you want and slice and dice.
Tamahome made a comment in the group The Sword and LaserStephen King on how to write topic
"I have tons of quotes in my On Writing review.


The selection is probably skewed more to my tastes. :)

“I wonder how harmless such people are? To what extent civilization is retarded by the laughing jackasses, the empty-minded belittlers?”

“The Paradox of Our Age

We have bigger houses, but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgment;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble in crossing the street to meet
the new neighbour.
We built more computers to hold more
information, to produce more copies than
ever, but have less communication;
We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods
but slow digestion;
Tall man but short character;
Steep profits but shallow relationships.
It’s a time when there is much in the
window, but nothing in the room”
― Dalai Lama

“Many of us prefer to live in places abandoned by humans. Less work for us. Detroit is very popular.”
