‘How Ya Doin’’ by Little Mix ft. Missy Elliott
Little Mix and Missy Elliott bring you another great pop song about the telephone. (Although who leaves voicemails anymore?)
*checks voicemail* Market research panel suppliers, and my father-in-law. :)
Okay comics folks I just picked up the Avengers Assemble Age of Ultron tie-in from last week and YOU GUYS A HIJABI LADY SUPERHERO IS NOW CAPTAIN BRITAIN WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THIS
So this just found its way back around to my Tumblr feed! Blimey.
This was a thing I thought up in the shower, just a thing that seemed really obvious. Captain Britain knows he’s going to die, who does he pass the torch to? Faiza. Duh. Honestly, who else would it be? In any circumstances?
She’s NHS. Come on.
But it’s so great to look through the notes and the likes and see how happy it’s making people. If I ever get the chance to write Marvel UK on a regular basis - no promises about that ever happening, but if I do - I’ll definitely do it again. (Except the killing Brian off part, mind. Who wants that?)
Of course, I wouldn’t have even thought of it without Faiza being so brilliant that it was the obvious thing to do, and she was created that way by the lovely Paul Cornell. Her adventures with MI:13 are all available in trade and on digital in the Captain Britain And MI:13 series, written by Paul, where she became holder of Excalibur and also fought Dracula. Pick them up if you can, they’re great.
Dave Sim draws Doctor Who. And Amy. And, erm, ah…..

How to compose a successful critical commentary: 1. Attempt to re-express your target’s position so clearly, vividly and fairly that your target says: “Thanks, I wish I’d thought of putting it that way.” 2. List any points of agreement (especially if they are not matters of general or widespread agreement). 3. Mention anything you have learned from your target. 4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or criticism. —
Daniel Dennett on how to argue well - Boing Boing (via deathbeard)
This is sort of what I try and do sometimes but - confession time! - it can make for pretty dry reading. :(
(I don’t agree at all with the other bit of Dennett advice - “stop hooting at the crap, go after the good stuff” - it’s not a dichotomy.)
“Troubled Relationship” is now a card category at Walgreen’s, which is great because that’s the sort of situation that is usually best handled via greeting card.
Over the last few years, I’ve watched as teens have given up on controlling access to content. It’s too hard, too frustrating, and technology simply can’t fix the power issues. Instead, what they’ve been doing is focusing on controlling access to meaning. —
The whole piece is typically good. It would be a mistake to characterise this shift in emphasis as something novel or specifically digital IMO - “controlling access to meaning” has been an important part (and sold as such) of pop culture and youth culture since the dawn of media.
So…this happened. [Datasexuals]
An important slide.
