I'm a Lazy Bitch

Okay, so after being amazingly negligent in posting recently and I apologize. I promise to try and be better soon. Please keep sending me covers and links, as it makes my job easier (and I'm a lazy bitch).

DocTurtle and I recently purchased a 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid, so I've been driving all over the mountains of NC in my new toy (and working extra hours to pay for it!). I won 1200 nickels on the slots at Cherokee, which sounds like a lot more than it is (my mom, maughtamom, can top me; she won 60,000 pennies once). But in the meantime, I've been neglecting you sorely, for which I apologize. Thanks for sticking with me.

So of course, after that apology, I'm still not posting (not really). Just wanted to let you know that I've been nominated (yay!) for Top 10 Blogs to read in 2008 by LISNews. Thanks to effinglibrarian and anonymous for nominating me. Cross your fingers, ya'll.

More covers to come soon, I promise!


Nazis are Evil

It's well known that Nazis are evil, most sane people agree, so when cover artists (and movie writers, hack authors, and others) want to show evil, who better to model your characters after than the Nazis?

Here we have those two great forces of evil, the pirates vs. the Nazis:

Who are the good guys? I have a sinking suspicion it's the naziesque chick (niiiiice boots, very S and M) wielding the laser against the poor pirate armed only with a knife. Overkill much? But that kinda reminds me of the movie Starship Troopers, in which Dr. Doogie, SS, is mean and kills things. And we're supposed to cheer. Grrrr, I hated that movie.

A really good movie that takes on the whole Nazis vs. good guys is Wizards, in which it's basically the Third Reich vs. the faeries. Buxom faeries kick ass! Boo ya!

So, repeat after me:

Pirates....GOOD ('specially if they're Johnny Depp...roowl!)


Faeries...VERY GOOD


Doogie Houser...CHEESY

Starship Troopers...FASCIST

See how easy it is?

UPDATE: Speaking of Nazis, doesn't Hilter look like he's conducting an opera? Allegro!
