|it's so summer: listening to podcasts

The Guardian Books Podcast: Rachel Cooke, one of the judges of the 2010 Observer/Cape Graphic Short Story prize, doesn't do superhero comics: "I'm a sort of book snob, so I want stories...and I want investigations into human psychology." Yes, my dear, you are a snob. A BIG FAT SNOB. It's even more annoying because she then calls other people in the graphic novel/comic scene who don't appreciate her being in it snobs. Not that she doesn't have a point about these people treating Alan Moore like Moses coming down the mountain with the 10 Commandments...
Hearing a glowing review of Toy Story 3 on Fresh Air reminded me that I hadn't posted about it. I saw it this weekend and it is a wonderful, wonderful movie. Funny, fun, and touching. Just like the first two. I love how the toys work together to solve their problems. I admit I teared up a bit at the end, but at least I didn't sob like I did watching Up.
