Yeah it's rare for me to double dip when it comes to comics outside of Grant Morrison, but I will be buying this digitally and the eventual hardcover.

His Marvel work was kind of whack. 1602 was a bit of a let down towards the end of it, and The Eternals was....not a good look.

His appearance on the Simpsons however was a delight.

Miracle Day was obnoxious. I get it - America and the UK are different.
Chips are called crisps, fries are chips, cookies are biscuits (or if you're my phone - biosciences)
Undies are pants, pants are trousers and lemonade is fizzy.(that one surprised me)

I never liked Gwen. Ianto was my favorite.


Anyway...
I have to read Frankenstein. I'm actually excited

From what Tumblr tells me, they're basically walking glurge or something? And their ending was sad? I don't know. I don't care. I like their faces. Whatever. My totally fourth-rate knowledge of the Whoniverse has led me to believe Nine is my favorite doctor and Martha is my favorite companion. These are, I must reiterate, characters on a show I have never watched.

She does. If you disagree, I hate you.

Oh, Amanda Palmer. I like most of your music. I like some of your statements. You're very pretty and your clothes are interesting. The rest of you is frankly embarrassing to all of us.

I enjoyed 1602, but while my literary tastes are discerning, my comic tastes are, uh, not so much.

I enjoyed 1602, but while my literary tastes are discerning, my comic tastes are, uh, not so much.
1) Your Who stances are fine. The Hardcore Who fans may say otherwise, but if you're a hardcore Doctor Who fan, you have bigger problems in your life than what people think about you silly British man in a time-traveling police box. Also Inspector SpaceTime > Who, no one denies this.

2) I agree. HIGH FIVE!

3) FACT: I have zero experience with Amanda Palmer, aside from retweets.

4) Hey if you liked it, good for you. Personally I was enjoying it as a weird peroid piece, until they brought in the whole "Cap is from the future" subplot, which was really....out there, I suppose for me. The book need less of that and more awesome Irish Daredevil and Gene Grey making the rest of the X-men feeling funny in their soft bits (because they are crushing on him, and he is actually a she, but they didn't know that. That was cute to me).

The initial comment was this: "Does that mean I must be cynical and bitter towards everything now?"

And I'm pretty sure that applies to us both as far as forums are concerned.

Using ground beef (or in this case, turkey) you mix it up with beef flavored Rice-a-Roni without the seasoning packet added yet. Shape them into meatballs, I'd make smaller ones just to be sure it cooks through well, and then fry them up in a big ol pan. Once they're cooked and browned all tasty like add water to the pan and then the seasoning packet to make a delicious face-planting sauce.

Then you eat it and go "WOW THATS COOL"

It tastes really good with the sauce that gets made from the water, meat residue in the pan, and the pretty much concentrated goodness from the seasoning packet. Usually my mom served it with rice but I am going to serve it with Alfredo noodles and Caesar salad.

I am not sure where my mom got the phrase 'porcupine meatballs', since I've never heard that term used anywhere else. Probably something she got from her mother.

IT SO IS.

I LOVED this as a kid, it's so simple to make and you can make up a big ol' bunch of them if your serving a family of 4 like my mother was. I imagine you could still make a typical spaghetti and meatballs meal with the same recipe and just add some tomato sauce to the broth and simmer it for a little bit.

I also forgot how much I love those little packets of pasta noodles in powdered seasoning that you add to a pot of water and milk. It sounds weird and kinda gross but the garlic shell noodles and spinach Alfredo taste really good.

We should have a Coscom meatball party

I disagree. The Saint and I are more awesome together than we are separately.
