My friends list, my people

My friendslist is all the same this morning. Almost without exception, every post on it is expressing sorrow over the US election results. I'm right there with you.

But this morning I woke up with a small positive thought: We're now one day closer to Trump being out of office. And tomorrow we'll be another day closer.

I just have to try not to think about the damage that will be done before he's gone.

I heard the saddest quote on the news yesterday. Some woman said, paraphrasing:

"They always told me I was wrong for not believing in gay rights. But Republicans hold the House, Congress, and now the presidency, and that's telling me I was right all along. Blah blah back to traditional values, things the country "should" believe in, the quote went on and on.

It makes my heart ache.

I try to focus on the positive things. Hillary won the popular vote. So there are more good, kind people in the country than there are people who support that abusive, racist, bullying piece of crap.

I wish we could address the issue of why it's not the popular vote that counts, but as Democrats keep winning the popular vote and yet losing the election, the Republicans won't ever let that happen.
Hidden Universe Travel Guides: The Complete Marvel Cosmos by Marc Sumerak
Rating: Liked (Hated-Disliked-Okay-Liked-Loved)

Book received free for review from Insight Editions.

What a fun book this is! As the title implies, it's set up just like a tour book, just for the whole universe.

For each place, there's all the expected information you'd see in a tour book, set up exactly the same way. Overview of the area, What to Wear, Sights and Activities, Lodging, Etiquette, a "Did you know?" section, Tips for a Fun Trip, Do's and Don'ts, etc. That would be interesting enough, but this book belonged to the Guardians of the Galaxy crew, and they all made notes all over it. Each of them has a perfectly distinct handwriting, so it's easy to tell who wrote each note.

While the art is fun, it's the text that really makes the book. Unfortunately there was a request to not to quote any of it, since it's still subject to change, so I'll share a few images from it instead. Click behind the cut to see it.

Three pieces of art back here.Collapse )

As this was a graphic novel, it doesn't count towards my book total for the year.
