The crested owl. So beautiful.
This is fucking amazing

And now, the weather.
Depending on which fox, we’re either in for a hell of a ride, or a whole lotta trouble.
I have a sincere love affair with this film. Not so much with Keanu Reeves (and don’t get me started on his continual lighter-flipping), but with the symbology, the effect, the story itself. Tiny new details that I catch while watching it eight years later. It isn’t a lazy movie, just lazy casting.
“I will give you an example of how race affects my life. I live in a place called Alpine, New Jersey. Live in Alpine, New Jersey, right? My house costs millions of dollars. [some whistles and cheers from the audience] Don’t hate the player, hate the game. In my neighborhood, there are four black people. Hundreds of houses, four black people. Who are these black people? Well, there’s me, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z and Eddie Murphy. Only black people in the whole neighborhood. So let’s break it down, let’s break it down: me, I’m a decent comedian. I’m a’ight. [applause] Mary J. Blige, one of the greatest R&B singers to ever walk the Earth. Jay-Z, one of the greatest rappers to ever live. Eddie Murphy, one of the funniest actors to ever, ever do it. Do you know what the white man who lives next door to me does for a living? He’s a fucking dentist! He ain’t the best dentist in the world…he ain’t going to the dental hall of fame…he don’t get plaques for getting rid of plaque. He’s just a yank-your-tooth-out dentist. See, the black man gotta fly to get to somethin’ the white man can walk to.” Chris Rock
Well, America in a nutshell
“The black man gotta fly to get somethin’ the white man can walk to.”

Absolutely agree with this. I loved the side, party large angel.
Top-hatted owls are fucking awesome.
You mean try and expand the readership beyond the traditional demographic? It’s good question. You could also ask why they don’t do more tie-in with movies and games.
DC and Marvel are really not focused on “new comic readers” - they are interested in stealing share from each other. When DC launched the new 52 which was one of the biggest marketing pushes that comics have ever seen they total of new readers was 5%. Of course, their focus was on the same demographic that they always target - males 18+ who already read comics.
It’s going to be veeeerrrry interesting to see how things change with the news the Comixology has seen a new comic reader emerging due to digital and that reader is not a male 18+.
And a whole lotta readers who are female, thousands of whom are 18+ and pushing at the status quo demanding better. Better comics, better diversity in comics, better diversity in writing comics, better diversity in drawing comics will benefit everyone, including the comic’s shares/sales. The biggest block to that seems to be… current readers, managers, writers, artists, marketers of said current comics who are 18+. Why change what they want.
Oh, I don’t know.
Also, having better selections on shelves and digitally maybe, just maybe, seems like a pretty good idea for everyone. But, what do I know. I’m not male, and I’m 30+.
