American magician David Blaine presses his wrinkled and cracked palm on the face of the glass sphere filled with water where he is spending seven days and nights. This photo was taken on the fifth day of his immersion.
You have every right to take me out of this world if I ever want to grab national attention by spending a week underwater.
“Paying for it”. Chester Brown definitely!
Chester Brown’s “Paying For It” is rather eye-opening on the topics of possessive monogamy, romantic love, and the decriminalization of prostitution.
Even though I don’t fully embrace everything he proposes, I think a lot of his points hold up. His weakness is the inherent bias that comes from lacking what could be considered a “normal” range of emotion. This robotic range gives him greater clarity at the cost of possibly alienating some readers.
Fandom News of the Day: Amazon Unveils a Fanfic Publishing Platform
Beginning in June, fanfiction authors will be able to self-publish their works from selected partner franchises via Kindle Worlds. Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars are already on board with the project and more are expected to be announced the official launch. However, authors aren’t exactly jumping at the chance to turn their works into cash: by using the platform, authors give all rights to the work to Amazon, who can then license your elements to other authors with no compensation to the original poster. The platform also will not publish stories containing pornography, excessive use of brand names or crossovers, so your Superwholock mpreg (male pregnancy) stories will just have to stay on Tumblr.
So essentially the writers of these shows are openly admitting to being out of ideas. In a way, this is good thinking on their part. Why go to the trouble of looking for your show’s fanfiction for ideas on various websites when you can compile them in one vat—one where you can’t be sued for infringement?
I sure hope fanfiction writers let this fail.
