Monday March 28 I was away for the weekend and didn't post anything...and someone closed all the links I'd left up to post. And I don't want to search anymore because I keep coming across this damned "cobra escapes from Bronx Zoo. I don't like snakes. I REALLY don't like snakes. Cobras--yeah, especially don't like really truly frightening looking snakes that can KILL ME! (I scream like a bansee at innocent garter snakes...)

Let's see if there's anything interesting to talk about...Amy Adams as Lois Lane blah blah blah Elizabeth Taylor everyone who ever knew her coming out of the woodwork to tell a story and link to their old interviews blah blah blah a bunch of reality shows I avoid like the plague blah blah blah...
So the comic book internet is all afire with talk of Rob Granito...fraud...copier...swiper...liar....  Given that a couple of the prints he's been selling as his work were based/traced from some of  The Guy's work, it has been a very loud topic of conversation in my house. The conversation is not helped by the fact that we sat in direct eyeline of this guy's back at Wizard World Toronto Comic Con 2011 where he was a featured guest.

The Guy's internet response? Besides a lot of comments across the 'net, his Saturday 'toon, Rob Granito Comic Fraud Funnies:
The first time I saw the term "manic pixie dream girl" I laughed myself silly--yep, it is completely and utterly the right term for that girl. According to The A.V. Club,
"...Nathan Rabin coined the phrase "Manic Pixie Dream Girl" to describe that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that "exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures." writer Drew Grant has decided to give us all a break and posts a slideshow of the "darkly sardonic geek girl", the girl with
"...[the] take-no-bullshit attitude, snarky quips and almost complete lack of interest in helping some poor schmuck figure out his life."
Of course she's on the list--you knew that before you even clicked through.
