Two Totally un-Yuri Things (Maybe Three)

March 16th, 2009

So, I really should review something today, but I’m not going to. Instead, here is my non-Yuri news report:

I am pleased, proud and amused to announce that I was able to write a Guest Review for Ain’t It Cool News for the beautiful graphic novel, My Mommy is in America (and she met Buffalo Bill). I hope you will take a moment and read the review. Also, do take a moment to read the comments. They are so incoherently hilarious that I have come to a new appreciation of the haters here, for at least being *on topic* in their rants. :-) My sincere thanks to AICN for giving me to the opportunity to confuse a whole new audience with literary references in my comic review.

Secondly, tonight I am doing my second and final talk on Graphic Novels at the Morris County Free Library. The talk on Saturday was honestly a lot of fun. I hope tonight’s talk will be equally as interesting. The talk will start at 7PM, and I’d love to see you there!

I might as well add in item three. I’ve been spending a lot of time on Twitter and Facebook these days so, if you are on either, do consider following me on Twitter and/or becoming a fan of Yuricon & ALC on Facebook! You’re just about guaranteed to get the Yuri news hot and fresh that way! Or check the right hand sidebar for other social media site links, like Yuricon on Livejournal, My Space, etc. It’s all about number creating a artificially inflated sense of importance, you know. (That was a joke, in case my sarcasm didn’t carry over text.)

That’s it for today. I’ll probably not get anything out tomorrow, either, but I’ll be back asap with more Yuri anime and manga reviews!

    I went and read your review, and I was myself befuddled by the comments left on it by users, as they by and large did not seem to make any sense whatsoever.

    Good heavens! And I thought my fangirl gushing was hard to follow. They didn’t leech away any of your brain cells, did they?

    Anyway, great review. Now I want to check this book out for myself.

    I checked some of those comments just because and all it left me with was “wtf?!?”

    You’re not kidding! I seem to remember a time when every post Harry would put up would always have a comment titled “Fu** you Harry!”. So it’s pretty much a standard for that website to not have serious comments. I guess for some people that’s half the fun in reading the new posts. :)

  5. I think of AICN comments as a form of textual graffiti. :-)

    Totally offtopic and I bet you know this already, but the Sasameki Koto anime has been confirmed.

    This is going to be a good year for Yuri.
