A whopping three parts

I did a Google search today to see who was linking to my photos and I found some interesting results.

Stockton-San Joaquin County Public Library

Stereogum (Half-way down the comments.)

Yahoo! Travel

Science vs Romance

and last but certainly not least,

The Bingo Guide (The one for club members' bingo reviews)

I also got an email today from a photo editor with the New York Times asking if I could submit a self-portrait for a story they are doing on people who take pictures of themselves and post them on the 'net. Crazy!!


A Graphic Revolution! Books 5 & 6

Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return by Marjane Satrapi continues her story after her parents send her to live in Austria in order to escape the war in Iran. She's lived an amazing life and the graphic novel medium is a perfect fit for her to bring the story to the masses. For a long time I had a negative perception of graphic novels but so far I've enjoyed all that I have read. I highly recommend both this one and the first one, Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood.

Continuing with the graphic novel genre I then read Blankets by Craig Thompson which I had received for my birthday from Laurel. Again, an excellent novel about Craig's life growing up in Wisconsin and his search for faith along the way. The drawings are amazing and the story is engrossing.


In other news, my MP, David Emerson of Vancouver-Kingsway has crossed the floor to the Conservatives in exchange for a cabinet position. I didn't vote for him when he was a Liberal but I certainly didn't vote for a Conservative and am very much looking forward to a by-election. Maybe Ian Waddell, our NDP candidate, will get the majority of votes this time around.

    I was so pissed off when I heard about Emerson. What a total sack of shit.
