Anyone got reading recommendations? Here are the criteria...

1) Has to be something I can get at Barnes & Noble. (I know, I know, but I got a gift card.)

2) No game stuff. Seriously, it's coals to Newcastle & I can trade or get set up.

3) Nothing that will make me regret I'm alive, and that includes bestselling first novels from authors who were still sperm when I was in college.

4) Funny is good, nonfiction is good... I'm a fiend for Mary Roach books.

OK! What'cha got?

OK writers, here's your challenge prompt of the day. Rewrite the following into a cogent threat that can fit in one standard comic-book speech balloon.

"I'm pretty sure I can make you wish you were never born, without leaving a mark, while sucking up enough superficial injury from your defensive thrashing to make an assault and battery charge stick on YOU."

I'm with Chris, you'll hit the reader harder with the twist at the end of the sentence if you put it in a second panel. Think of it as monolgue beats.

Also I find i am best at shortening text when i know what the images will be saying. What can you use visually to communicate some of this for you?

Oh come on.

I saw a link on the side of Buzzfeed* saying "Can We Guess Your Favorite Season of American Horror Story"? And I'm like: "Coven." It's "Coven." It's "Coven" for me, it should be "Coven" for you, I'd be very surprised if it wasn't "Coven" for damn near everybody.

I reiterate: OH COME ON.

Asylum has Ian McShane as a homicidal Santa. I haven't gotten through that whole season yet, much less subsequent ones, but that's gonna be mighty hard to top.

The cynic in me says this thing has a snowball's chance in hell...
 
"The movement for constitutional reforms that would end what organizers call “corporate rule” has arrived in the chambers of Congress. This morning, members of the U.S. House of Representatives joined Move to Amend by announcing their sponsorship of the “We the People Amendment” (House Joint Resolution 48), which clearly and unequivocally states that:

Rights recognized under the Constitution belong to human beings only, and not to government-created artificial legal entities such as corporations and limited liability companies; and  

Political campaign spending is not a form of speech protected under the First Amendment.

In making the announcement, lead sponsor Rep. Rick Nolan (DFL-Minnesota), said: “It’s time to take the shaping and molding of public policy out of corporate boardrooms, away from the corporate lobbyists, and put it back in city halls – back with county boards and state legislatures – and back in the Congress where it belongs.”
Leesa "George" Friday, a spokesperson for Move to Amend, agreed, saying: "Today, members of Congress join a movement that insists on the fundamental equality of all Americans, and that rejects the idea that the corporate class should have special protections against We the People.”
Constitutional Amendment Introduced in Congress Ensuring Rights for People, Not Corporations. Reps. Nolan, Pocan, Cartwright, Huffman, Grijalva and Ellison Respond to Hundreds of Local Resolutions Calling for “We the People” Amendment. (Washington D.C.) - The movement for constitutional reforms ...

I don't think either of these things has much chance to go anywhere because the whole corporations-as-people thing was kicked off over their "right" to finance political campaigns.

I fell down yesterday and now it hurts to breathe deep. It feels like I got buttstocked right between the shoulder blades. Ugh. If I'm cranky today, that's why: Physical pain.

Get better ASAP & really sucks as most chest/back or hand/feet injuries just take a while longer to heal as it's hard to not use them. Hopefully a doc or meds help speed up recovery.

The other day I went to pick up my interlibrary loan of Kirby's Fourth World Omnibus Volume One, and I noticed that the car next to mine had "Nocturnal Witchcraft" lying in the backseat, next to some fast-food wrappers. Looking closer, I saw a book with Anton LaVey on the back, several garbage bags filled with... IDK, whatever... and a Hello Kitty dreamcatcher hanging off the rearview mirror. The front passenger panel was completely torn off, and the back wheel panel was badly marred.

I can't help but think Satanism isn't working out so well for this person.

I thought that was Blue Delliquanti's artwork!

This one is just too good to not use in a Numenera game.
Upcoming comic anthology New World is all about civilizations clashing, and clash they do in this comic from the book, written by Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal’s Zach Weinersmith and illustrated by O Human Star’s Blue Delliquanti, where a man visits in isolated space colony founded on an unusual belief.
