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.

LOL!!!! Some otakus should kidnap her & bring her to a con to be surrounded by cosplayers and read a manga of all genres non stop for 3 days LOL!

Oh, I know the tearing up feeling for Toy story 3. Iwould have been one of those sobbing if the movie theater wasn't sooo full. The ending was my favorite part when Andy was giving Daisy his toys & they started playing with it until he left & the toys were watching him drive off waaaah *sob* *sob*. There should have a recovery at the end of funny outake to make up for the sadness in the room!
