Greatest thing I’ve seen all year.

Dear friends/readers/watchers/random-scrollers-by:

Do you feel like something is missing in your life?

Do you ever suspect that that something could be “an animated video in which Santa Claus and an anthropomorphized FOX News attack the Daily Show desk with rifles, only to have Jon Stewart defeat them using a fire extinguisher, then harness them to the sleigh and take off”?

Me neither. But good news! You get to have one anyway:

Next Week in But I’m A Cat Person:
The wrap-up of chapter 4, and perhaps an invitation for guest strips…

So, hey, I went to TDS.

Daily, Viewed: And A Good Tie Was Had By All: the proper taping reporT for Thursday’s TDS. Featuring photos, tie musings, typos (theirs, not mine), general gleefulness, and extensive notes on the Q&A.

“The great thing about SuperPACs is, [Stephen] can give me the money anyway. He can decide to buy me a gold-plated sundae if he wants.”

Moms, making manga, Madoka, and menschdom

Naturally, no sooner does LJ come back online than I head off to Otakon, where all I have is a hotel connection that’s slowed to a crawl with the pressure of all the other congoers. Sigh.

Con was fun, if exhausting. My parents usually come down to the city, sit outside the convention center, and people-watch. This year they actually registered, and had a great time bopping around at the Help For Parents panel and various shows they thought looked promising. Mom bought herself a Hello Kitty plushie, while Dad picked up one of the paper Saiyan-hair hats that were going around. As usual, I helped run the Create a Comic Project‘s Make a Manga tournament; they chilled in the audience, and Mom actually won in one of the categories, without any help on my end. I have no idea what she’s going to do with her new Armitage DVDs ^_^;

Madoka premiere was a thing of beauty. Huge crowded room, tons of people who know exactly what’s coming and are excited at all the bits you are, cheering and booing and clapping at all the right moments. (Outburst of applause for Charlotte, just because we were so caught up in the moment. Followed by even more applause for Homura charging to the rescue a few minutes later.) Followed by a creator Q&A; I’m still kicking myself for not coming up with a question (who was Walpurgis?) until the line to ask was closed.

Spent enough time at the manga library that the staff got attached to my hellhound plushie. (It happens. He’s a cutie.) After flipping through a couple of unengaging duds, stumbled across Her Majesty’s Dog, which caters to my id so beautifully that I am mildly disappointed none of you have recced it to me before. Straight to the top of my “if I had money, I would buy this” list. Also, Patrick and Hyoue need to be BFFs.

Then at last I get back and find out that while I’ve been in MD, Jon Stewart went to Afghanistan? He doesn’t plan to mention it on the show; I hope he hasn’t thought to forbid Stephen from bringing it up, because that is some kind of bravery and character right there. The most frightening thing I’ve faced in the past week is a bitey cat.

This post may be a little disorganized. Did I mention I was tired?

Photospam of the hellhound to come.

Meanwhile, in the future…

Website Updates
Layout tweaked on The Zen and the Damaged. Articles are still there, but the front page is now all about the fanworks.

“That was fun Leigh. Say goodbye to her.”

Olivia and her daemon? Probably not (I feel like she would have a bird), but still cute — look, he has a little bow tie!

…Yeah, judging by this picture, a bird would work well. Also, she is clearly a secret Disney princess. With her own unicorn.

Elsewhere, a mystery solved: Olivia is shorter than Jon, but not by much. (And Kristen is taller than I thought.)

This is the first time I’ve gotten to fangirl a celebrity where the big fannish websites were already set up when I got there, and it’s seriously a trip. All the major Colbert sites rose into being after TCR got going (and one, WonkyEar, already fell); Jon still doesn’t have a proper comprehensive hub. My personal fake-news image collection (partially organized on Flickr) is currently over 5,500 pictures, which is bigger than almost any of the places I could go to get more. (The only exception I can think of is the juggernaut ColbertPics.)

But then you have the Olivia Munn sites. And she’s been doing photoshoots and grand premieres and awards shows for years now, and there are galleries with carefully organized albums full of high-res photos for all of them. Including the sexy bikini ones (don’t judge; you know that if Jon or Stephen did a similar spread, there would be dancing in the streets), and ones with titles like “Olivia Munn Coming Out Of Her Hotel” (…okay, those you can judge. Even though she always looks fantastic in them).

I’m drowning in eye candy, and downloading like there’s no tomorrow.

I want to be sorry for her sake that Perfect Couples was canceled, but would love to see her start getting even more air time on TDS. Most of her ouevre on Attack of the Show! doesn’t look worth wading through to find the gems, and Perfect Couples just plain wasn’t that funny — although she was funny on it. (I would totally watch 22 minutes of that character and “Stephen” having a throwdown.)
