Nodds & Nends: SOPA, War Tumblr, Confederacy of Spinsters

Read a good article all about SOPA and the comic book industry.  This may require some reaction from us internets people, just saying.

This is an awesome tumblr I found via The Bloggess (if you aren’t reading her blog, you should be!).


Ever heard of war? That keeps plenty of people who love other people away. Remember that whole period in the late 1930s and early 1940s when young, married men were writing letters to their wives and saying things like, “The war rages on. I’m terrified but the commander says we’ll pull through. Oh, dearest Agnes, I think of you daily and wish to place my hand upon your fertile bosom once more. But the war, Agnes. The war keeps me away. Even though I love you. Because love cannot create a magical plane that will at once destroy all the Nazis and fly me back to you so that I may touch your bosom and also your other parts which a gentleman like I must never put to parchment. Because that magical plane doesn’t exist. And so I fight, here, in this war, away from you.” Yeah, it’s called history.

And this awesome blog from three different funny ladies called Confederacy of Spinsters showed up on freshly pressed this week and I’ve been checking back in on them daily. Funny reads. 😀
