Wanted: One Iconic Clowny Nemesis. Must Love Bats.

Issue #4, Batman (Winter 1940) Moody!Monday, Batfans! monday You have Dragon to thank for this post. I’ve been so busy the last couple of months, I was unaware how desperately my comedic snarking upon CL was needed. Especially considering the awfulness of the day we’ve had. imissya (Not like the man lives with me or anything, so he gets the totally undiluted, BTTW version of yours truly. A “Best of Snarkstress” album, if you will. Daily.) imfab Either way, I have been informed that I need to do an update, and so, an update you shall get. lovespray Let’s. Do This. ...

I Have Not Abandoned You!

Things have been super crazy around here, what with In-Law visits and Audio project deadlines looming. However! We have a few things cooking right now, one of which can be found here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/hrjackson and listened to LIVE ever ...

Batsy And Cat, Sittin’ In A Tree…

Issue #3, Batman (Fall 1940)

Moody!Monday, Batfans!

So let’s see if the technology around here is planning to stick around and work a little longer, eh? Last month was a wash in the Snark department for precisely that reason.


And there towards the end of the month, especially, I just was SO frustrated and annoyed that my Snarky nature took a vacation.


But I’m back. *fingers crossed* Provided the tech holds out.



Fangirl Friday! Where’s The Bat?

It’s late. I’ll keep this succinct. kronkclap Things have been insane around here, and I had started the Batsy post for Monday, but then… things went a little sideways. Between the Virtual Book Tour (the live interview we did on podcast can be found at THIS link) and the hard drive upon which I store ALL my comics deciding to die, it’s been a hell of a week. lokidonteven My one bright spot?
*insert spontaneous fangasms all over the house*
  I know you’ll forgive me for not having Batsy up. I need to see how many of my comics I can recover, particularly since the issue I was working on (#3) has somehow decided to go the way of the Dodo, leaving me a little… annoyed. angrykitteh But since I couldn’t bring you Batsy snark, I did the next best thing: getdrunk ...

Wonder Woman Joins The Circus!

Issue #1, Wonder Woman (June 1942) Wondrous!Wednesday, Amazon!Fanatics! We’re back with the second story from ‘Ish #1 of WW. humpdaywoop What a week so far. Between the unexpected death of Glee’s Cory Monteith, the unexpected not-guilty verdict in the Zimmerman case, and the unexpected passing of 13 year-old Talia Castellano, the news has been pretty much just sadness and woe. There have been riots and tears all around, and here in sunny Seattle, we’ve been doing what we can to keep perky. bunnuzzle2 Mostly by ingesting obscene amounts of giffage while working like a madwoman on editing my latest audiobook project and hammering out chapters for book 3 of The Nemesis Chronicles. faketyping The week *did* start out rather nicely, to be honest. We had a wonderful weekend with some friends. Broke out the Risk: Godstorm game and just had a blast. Good food (amazeballs burgers on the grill, ‘tater and mac salads), laughter, and awesome friends make for fun times. nomnomnom Then Snarkstress had to get sick. I’m not sure what’s going on, but I have  a sore throat like nobody’s business, and feel like warmed over death. I’m seconds away from devolving into a whiny girl-child, and nobody wants that, trust me. So I’m going to drink some more tea (with some honey we picked up at a local farmer’s market the aforementioned friends introduced us to) and see what I can do to laugh, quietly and mostly in my brain, by embracing my inner Amazon and telling this ickiness to GTFO. frogkick And who better to help keep the giggles going than our delightful daughter of Hippolyte? ...

It’s Getting Downright UGLY Up In Gotham.

Issue #3, Batman (Fall 1940)

Moody!Monday, Batfans!


Here’s hoping you had a lovely weekend. We spent ours celebrating Dragon’s Birthday, wandering a farmer’s market, having awesome breakfast with awesome friends, and glutting on Deadpool gaming goodness, with a side order of Sly Cooper for good measure.

Now it’s back to the old grindstone, as it were. At least for a few days before the holiday.

Not that that’s stopping our neighbors from celebrating with fireworks on Sunday night, apparently.

What THEY think they sound like: (wait for it…)


In reality:



And so, in order to distract myself from the overwhelming urge to go out and get all bent out of shape, let’s take a look at what our favorite Dynamic Duo is up to this time, shall we?


Fangirl Friday!

(Snarkstress: I have found myself suffering from a bit of a .gif addiction. As such, this post is full of them (and pictures), so … you’ve been warned if things run a touch slower.)

I don’t know about you guys, but, MAN, am I glad it’s Friday.


It’s been quite a week around ye olde Hus af Snark and we’re both ready for a little Solstice Parade this weekend. And not just because there will be naked cyclists, either. (Although, it’s fascinating the dedication these people have to riding nude but for a little body paint in the chill and rain of the PacNW summer. Really.)


Either way, I thought a post was in order this Friday because I was having a little chat with Dragon the other day and, newsflash, he pointed out that there are some things that make me totally a girl.



Wonder Woman Takes The Stage!

wwintro1 Issue #1, Wonder Woman (June 1942) Wonderous!Wednesday, Amazon!Fanatics! This week I’ll keep it short and sweet, considering how long this snarking is. (And keep in mind, this post will only cover the FIRST story in issue #1...there are 4 of them.) I adore Wonder Woman. Always have. And so, she joins Batsy on the DC offerings here on ye olde blog. Strong women? Hells yes. wwdress Let’s do this.   ...
