Computer repaired!  Thank goodness!  Seriously guys, having my drawing comp and my scanner comp as mutually exclusive machines was KILLING ME.  Now I can draw and scan on the same comp again, oh thank god! (And I can put BSOD back into retirement, where it belongs.)

And on that note, does anyone want my no-longer-needed ‘03 scanner?  It’s a CanoScan LiDE 30.  It still works, still has the install CD, but it’s admittedly old and creaky and I couldn’t get it to run on Windows 7 64.  Windows 7 32 is okay, though. (And for all I know, Canon has put up more updated drivers; I always used the 2003 install CD.)

I’ll probably just give it to Boomerang’s, perhaps with a note attached, but I figured I might as well check here first.  It was my first and only scanner for over a decade, and it served me well.  If there’s a baby artist in the house who wants it, I’m okay with passing it on!

BOOKS!

Things I’ve read recently:

  • Col Williams’s I Love My Hair, Dysphoric Thoughts, and Remove the Knife and the Scar Still Remains.  Little black and white ziney comics; I think the hair one is my favorite.  Totally recommend. (they’re @colsart‚Äč on tumblr)
  • Food Porn from Filthy Figments.  It’s a big bunch of queer porn comics AND a cookbook, so basically everything Mac and Biff ever wanted from a book.  It might possibly be my favorite anthology, though duking it out with Queerotica.  Thanks to @our-witching for it!
  • Horny Tails and The Pound #1 from Richard Moore.  This was a weird nostalgia thing; we were really into Richard Moore’s non-adult work back in high school, and as an adult, I figured I’d try out his adult work.  It’s okay.  Still love his inks more than the actual stories.
  • Integration is a Bitch! by Tom Floyd.  Awesome example of education through comics and humor from 1970 about racial integration in the workplace.  Really wish I knew more about the publishing history!
  • Fire Dancer, by Ann Maxwell.  Old nostalgia read; our copy has now been literally read to pieces.  Old sci-fi pulpy romance from the early 80s.  We imprinted on it as a wee middle schooler.
