Look, I realize that some of you are all about eating too much burned meat and potato salad right now. But the DISCUSSION for the 11th PoC in SF Blog Carnival is HAPPENING RIGHT NOW.

Why aren't you there?

I find it hard to believe that those of you who comment to this journal have absolutely no thoughts and nothing to say.

The entry is open to OPENID and Signed Comments. So you don't even have to login; just sign a name to the bottom.

I'm waiting for someone from this 'sphere to say something intelligent about Xavin from Runaways and the creator/editorial choice to make him black - just for starters. Personally I think there's likely opportunities to discuss how the black man, in particular, in America must become a chameleon and blend in and seem unobtrusive and unthreatening which just aren't happening in Runaways. Though maybe it's happened recently and I've just missed it.

I'm waiting for someone to say something about Blade and Shaft. C'mon. You know you wanna.

I'm waiting for someone to make a comment about finding Samurai in Space.


  1. I'm following the discussion! :D I am! :] I just have nothing smart or nething to say that would add nething! :( And I dun even know of most of the shows/movies/comics being discussed :( I've never read Runaways ;-;

    Well it's cheering to know that it's being read. But it must suck not to know about Babylon 5, Deep Space 9, Stargate Atlantis and I'm not sure what else has been brought up so far? Predator and Predator vs Alien.

    I wonder if your local library has a copy of Runaways? It's worth reading, at least the bits before Joss Whedon took over. I should probably re-read it the books I own through activist's eyes, come to think of it.

  3. I know about B5 and DS9, but I'm not a big fan of Atlantis :(

    I just dun remember a lot about B5 and DS9 nemore.. and I can't think of nething to say about them in the discussion :(

    I luffed B5 tho and the first 3 seasons of DS9! :D

    I never watched any of the Predator movies tho :( They're not rly my kind of movie :\

  4. I read it when you first plugged it, but didn't have anything to add. I'll check to see where the discussion has gone now...

  5. I said something :( I hope it's not dumb.. I'm worried I'm off topic or something :(
