This is the first LIVE Dork Forest. In Seattle, before a live audience, I talked with Ed Brubaker and Kermet Apio . Ed is a multi-Eisner Award winning writer of many of the comic books I read. I dork out about HIM a bit and we talked movies and comics and politics and television. It was awesome. Kermet is a great comic (winner of the Great American Comedy Festival) and you should go watch him do it a lot.

 

Notes:

Willow-I’m kidding. I like Willow and have issues with LOTR but, I’m kidding

All crushes on drawings are that “asexual crushes” “weird warmness.” Same with my adolescent crushes on Bam Bam and Racer X.

Archies – Betty and Veronica

Groo the Wanderer
Blind Melon
Phoenix Jones – actual Seattle Superhero

Portland – I was told by a Seattle comic, David Crowe, that “Seattle has the same signs, they are just printed and laminated”

Unfamiliar Fishes – Sarah Vowell

I Claudius – I believe this is the show he speaks of J
Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk – David Sedaris

Freedom -  program to turn off the internet
Can You Hear the Laughter? The Story of Freddie Prinze

Robbie Benson – The Death of Richie
Red Dawn – North Korean/Chinese

Red Dawn – original plot
Red Sonya – the terrible movie!

Incognito – the MOVIE!!
Lynndie England

Truth – Black Captain America

Rawhide Kid – Gay
Darwin - XMen

Cuban Missile Crises
Three Mile Island

    Utterly accidentally, while watching THE BIG TOWN (based on noir legend Clark Howard's story "The Arm"...I would've sought it out sooner had I realized, as a fan of its ridiculously good cast as well: Lee Grant, Diane Lane, Bruce Dern, Suzy Amis, Tom Skerrit, Tommy Lee Jones, Cherry Jones, Del Close, and Matt Dillon) on the web over the weekend, I stumbled over the Brubaker project ANGEL OF DEATH on Crackle as well...the universe will keep pointing things out to one:

    Oh, and given your reading, I suspect you'll like the novelist whose book I, CLAUDIUS was the source of both the '70s miniseries and the unfinished Charles Laughton film. Robert Graves wrote a bit of fantasy, a smaller bit of sf, and a fair amount of historical fiction and nonfiction dealing with myth.

    Racial politics in Hawaii (as I hope Vowell makes clear) are complex at the best of times...with no majorities (in national ethnicities, anyway), the ethnic chauvinism tends to be omnidirectional, and as the largest national/ethnic group, really coming into its own politically and economically in the 1960s and 1970s, the Japanese made as good a target for resentment as anyone else and better than some...particularly among the Polynesians, Hawaiians and Samoans among others, who were as with most indigenous groups in the States in most circumstances, at the bottom of the economic and power ladder (although there were some paternalistic sops thrown to Hawaiians particularly, from the Dillingham Commission activities [which cannot have been missed by Vowell, I'm sure] and related agencies). "Haoles"/pale Caucasians were just a notch down from Japanese Americans in terms of wealth and influence, so were likely to be as unpopular with the big poor kids as the Japanese, and their progenitors had been in charge longer. (Portuguese and other darker-complected Caucasians could mix in better with the Polynesians, who are also dark-complected Caucasians, and with the Filipinos and others who were also tending to be shunted toward the middle and lower classes in Hawaii...while the Chinese-Americans and the Korean-Americans were essentially ethnicities 3 and 4 in the hierarchies. But, again, no majorities, and lotsa interethnic hostility carried over from the old countries or developed fresh on the archipelago over the previous century and a half.

    And at least the first H50 did have a few Hawaiians or Samoans or hapa-Haoles in the primary cast...the closest I've seen of the few episodes of the new show seems to be a hapa informant guy.

    I'm surprised no one shoved GROO under your nose, Jackie. Or http://stevestiles.com/index.html one of Steve Stiles's comics, particularly the funny ones...
