As you know I’m a big fan of the Snow by Night comic. It’s a unique and well researched fantasy comic with a level of character development that is rare to find. Right now the comic is having a kickstarter for it’s next published book and it’s worth an investment.
Now, just for a bit of context, at the same time there is a kickstarter to produce and deliverer blocks of tungsten to people. It has earned $182K. A useless hunk of metal* is earning 200 times that a really good book. There is no justice in this world.
I call on you to support Snow by Night not only because it is a good book, but to try and stem the tide of hipster stupidity. Strike out against the darkness and ignorance of this world and use you money to purchase goods and services not just to be “ironic”. Do it for Adam Smith, Allen Greenspan, the Song Dynasty, and Capitalism!
*On a side note, Tungsten is on of the minerals that funds armed militants in Congo. When buying the tungsten cube to basically just sit on a shelf, even from “conflict free” sources, you are slightly driving up the price of mineral. I guess its unfair to say it’s useless to buy it, you are doing something, specially promoting death and forced labor. Congratulation you had an impact on the world.
** No child labor or murdering of the innocent were engaged in the production of Snow by Night. Just saying.
I am Penfighter, the new writer!
I could wax poetic and confess my excitement to be working on this project but that would get tiresome. Instead, I am more interested to hear what all of Bunny’s faithful readers have to say about her new adventures! Currently, there is only one page out. However, as more find their way here I hope you are all willing to let me know how I’m doing.
As far as who I am, there isn’t a huge interesting story to tell. I am a professional writer working in several fields including theater, fiction, and video game story content. More importantly, I am a husband and a proud father. I am a gamer (Twitch and all) with a passion for good storytelling and competitive multiplayer. (Yes, people like me exist who like BOTH aspects of gaming.)
I am also a fan of Blade Bunny and I hope my fondness for the character helps me write her properly. I enjoy writing comedy and drama to tell balanced stories. This might mean that we see some darker and perhaps more serious moments out of Bunny than we are used to but her whimsical nature and witty banter will serve to balance what is happening around her; As it always has, actually. Speaking of new things, you should expect to start seeing some new regular characters introduced early in the new book. The nature of the Bunnyverse allows for the return of previous characters as well so who knows who will pop in as the pages roll out?
I look forward to seeing you guys around!
Lastly, thanks to Drowemos for this opportunity.
So I was hoping you guys could help me out with something. See, I want to get up early. However, for some strange reason, my bed transmutes to the most comfortable place in the universe every morning. I blame bed gnomes. Or maybe C.H.U.D. I mean Cannibalistic Humaniod Underground Dwellers have to have hobbies right? Sure they are all about eating people but they have to do something in their down time. Switch people mattress might be their idea of fun.
Anyway I’m pretty bad with self-motivation but guilt… I am the master of guilt. So I figure if I had an appointment with someone in the morning that would provide the push for me to thwart the C.H.U.D.’s (or perhaps bed gnomes, I have ruled out bed gnomes) fiendish game and get my ass out of bed. I figure if I set up an open chat in the morning, a time to discuss anything and everything that is going on with the comics it would be something that you guys might be interested in and it would give me a reason to get up early.
So what do you say? Would anyone be interested in a 5:30 to 6:00 am EST time chat? Are you even interested in talking to me?
Well 2 weeks ago we had a “feminist” wallpaper with Bunny calling out objectification so this week we will go the other direction and have picture drawn to appeal to the “male gaze”.
There may have been a typo or two in the instruction to the artist on this picture.
As always the image are always free but they are here to encourage you to support the comic. You can join the patreon, vote or give a tip to help the comic out. You get a special treat in the patreon to be able to ask the new writers of Blade Bunny any question you want if you join at the 3 buck level (Note: you can cap your donation at 3 bucks and it still counts). So let the shameless begging begin:
I have to talk about feminism one more time. I promise this will be the last time I bring up the topic.
So let me just start out with an apology. I little while back I flipped out about about criticism of astrophysicist Matt Taylor shirt that was made for him by Elly PriZeMaN. And while I still believe the criticizing of him was just wrong logically and morally , my reaction was:
- A completely unreasonable response on my part.
- Not the correct time or place to bring up the topic at all.
- Dead wrong, applying the actions of a few bad apples to “Feminists”
The people at the center of the controversy were complete morons and asses. But the problem is that horrible people are everywhere, in every group and belief system. If we start attributing the actions of horrible people to what ever group they may have membership in, well that just make the world a worse place. Really, it all comes down to the problem of Nazi Cows
It was a failure in my thinking, applying the actions of a bad actors to the whole of a group that just wants to make the world better. Not that I don’t find the bad actors very irksome. It’s the smugness of their stupidity that gets me. There is an innate unfairness in someone being an ass and then sleeping the sleep of the just.
But there were better way I could have dealt with the issue. Better ways to show the idiocy of the situation. For example I could have commissioned a wallpaper like this:
(click image for high rez)
Now normally when I post a free wallpaper I remind you that you can support the comic through various mean. Not this time. Instead I am going to ask you to support someone else comic.
Gynostar is a very funny feminist webcomic. I realized that if I don’t like the bad actors in the feminist community then the best solution is to promote the good actors. Granted I don’t exactly agree with Rebecca Cohen on all things I am glad that she is out there. Also, I do refute her claim that Gynostar is the world’s favorite feminist superhero. But I can forgive anyone for a little hyperbole given that I am so much like Jesus but cooler, like a sexy rock-star Jesus.
Please send a few buck here way on the patreon link below. In fact I have a little challenge; I would like anonymously raise the value of her Patreon by $100 over the next week. If we can do that I will release another free wallpaper.
And that is all I have to say on that. I was wrong, angry and dumb. I am often wrong, angry and dumb. But at least I admit that I am wrong and dumb once I calm down. That’s something.
