The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 
While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.
That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating. 

I couldn’t hit the reblog button fast enough.

here’s an idea, pay writers decent wages for writing, get more books

See “T.G.I. Fart,” “Jamba Jews”, And Other Corporate Parody Art From Nathan Fielder’s “Dumb Starbucks” Show

In order to justify opening up a copycat coffee shop that serves every Starbucks menu item with the word ‘dumb’ in front of it, Nathan Fielder had to demonstrate his history of corporate parody. Boy, did he deliver.

Hawkeye #19 was well worth the wait. I thought nothing would ever top Pizza Dog.

#19 is mostly in sign language with very little subtitles showing just how awesome the medium of comics can be.

5 Reasons To Watch The Meltdown With Jonah And Kumail On Comedy Central

stevenraymorris:

In the back of a comic book shop in Los Angeles, a small chamber, resembling a glorified storage closet, acts as a gallery space by day. However, every Wednesday night it hosts the best comedy show in Los Angeles. The Meltdown With Jonah and Kumail, hosted by comedians Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani, and produced by the always effervescent Emily Gordon, will be taking the leap from the stage to television. Starting tonight July 23rd, comedy fans from all around the world will be able to bare witness to the laughs, the surprises and intimacy of it all.

My girlfriend and I have been attending The Meltdown regularly since late 2012 and I do feel a sense of pride in seeing its growing success. Everyone involved works their butt off, with plenty of sweat (It is the back of a comic book shop after all and it gets really hot). Assembling a devoted crowd every week, the venue is now burgeoning at the seams. After Comedy Central ordered a full season of the show I wondered if the experience would translate to mainstream television. I’m delighted to say it does indeed and I give you five reasons why you should tune in and check it out. 

1. The diversity of comedians is astounding.

From Jenny Slate and Gabe Liedman’s comedy duo shenanigans, to parody god Weird Al dropping in, to Steve Agee’s stoner recollections, to Maria Bamford’s razor-sharp insight, to Reggie Watts’s playful musical musings, there is a comedian for everyone. Each roster is stacked with cutting-edge entertainers that always subvert your expectations and keep you roaring with laughter. Maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two.

2. The hosts are charming as hell.

Comedians Kumail Nanjiani and Jonah Ray are humorous in their own right, but together they bounce off the stage like two old roommates, endearing us with their antics and repartee. You’ll delight in each one taking stabs at the other, volleying back and forth like two tennis players, but always in the spirit of keeping the audience captivated and entertained.

3. It’s shot like no other stand-up performance.

During the tapings, I was dumbfounded by the amount of cameras filming the show. There were GoPros, camera operators sitting in the audience, in the back, outside and more. All of these sources combined with a deft and fluid editing style create a truly cozy and genuine experience perfectly translating the real life feeling of being there.

4. The green room reveals comedic insights.

Each week during the live show I always wonder what the comedians do while waiting in the green room. Often the crowd will get tiny glimpses, like when comedian Todd Glass will heckle the hosts for fun or when Meltdown spirit animal and comedian Ed Salazar takes his shirt off on request. Now, with the tv show, moments backstage are inserted into the program, blurring the lines between where the green room ends and the stage begins.

5. The crowd gets involved.

Learning that The Meltdown is only thirty minutes an episode I was worried that audiences at home wouldn’t get the full experience of the live show. Half the fun is seeing Jonah, Kumail, and the other comedians jump into bizarre and funny conversations with the crowd. These interactions can provide organic seeds to later bits and often become fun running jokes throughout the night. I’m glad to learn this element of the live show remains intact. It’s one of the many ways this show is unique.

The first episode is currently on Amazon so take a peek if you can’t wait! The Meltdown With Jonah and Kumail premieres tonight on Comedy Central Wednesday July 23rd at 12:30am.

real talk!
