Hippo Birdie, Batsy! (Throwback Post)

01/05

I couldn’t let today go by without giving a shout out to my main Batsy!boo, busy celebrating his 75th BIRTHDAY!

So I thought I’d repost the very first Batsy!Snark I did! Waaaay back in 2011. Enjoy it! (more…)


Yo Ho And A Ship Full Of Bats!

Marvelous!Monday, Bat!fans!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, if you celebrate! Green beer all around!

And because it’s been so long, and Dragon really, really wanted me to do an update… Batsy’s back!

I’ve been trying to play catch up and mean to do a real update soonish.

But for now, let’s focus on the shenanigannery of our favorite Dark Knight!

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.)

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!

19/09

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 every Friday at 8pm EST. Here’s the fun part, on Friday, after the live portion, we record a CL exclusive portion that will be up by the next Friday, so keep your ears peeled for part 2 to show up tomorrow.

gremlindance

Also, once I get these Audio books out of the way, I’ll be updating and creating the Clashing Muses blog, a place to find the latest podcasts from yours truly, in case you’re not all about the snark. We cover movie/game/television reviews, food stuffs, you name it. If it’s not necessarily snark, more Fangirl Friday related? It’ll be there. And here. Cross posting for the win, right?

tatumflail

You can still follow what we’re up to on twitter: @hrjacksontnc aaaaand…. *points at sidebar* there too.

I’m dying to do snark, but y’know, real life is being a PITA right now. Maybe if I catch a break between now and tomorrow, I’ll get Wonder Woman up in addition to the Friday Fangirl posting. Seriously, yo, I haven’t even had a chance to do my nails. My tips are looking raggedy!

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.

stuffworks

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.

She!Hulk Gets Misunderstood

13/08

The Savage She-Hulk, #3 (April 1979)

Tempestuous!Tuesday, Shulkanauts!

shulkiereveal

That sound you hear? That’s the sound of my squee when I discovered that, though the status of a few of my comics collections remains on shaky ground, I had NO problems getting into my She!Hulk stash.

yaypup

Thank heavens, because I was about to seriously cry bitter tears of emo-woe that would make even Emo!Thor jealous.

sadrapunzel

And we know he generally has the market cornered on emo.

This week we’ve been busy with the Book Tour, and you can follow its progress at our FB Fan Page, if you’d like. If you’ve read our books, fantastic! Let us know what you think in the comments, or leave a review on amazon or whathaveyou. We always love to hear from our fans.

And speaking of fans… goodness, it’s been warm here lately! Well, warm for Seattle (mid 80s), but you’d swear the city were melting with the hysteria around the temps. As always, we’re quite happy that we have central AC.

hotowl

 

Beyond that, this week has already been filled with too many dental visits, prepping for the arrival of Dragon’s Mom next month, and just general shenanigannery around ye olde Hus af Snark. I’ve been working on a bunch of audiobook projects and working my little heiney off doing something that, besides this blog, I truly enjoy.

I mean really… my voice, reading books to you? What’s not to like?

But you’re not here to hear me gloat about my awesomeness, are you?

Two-Thor-One, Fangirl Friday Post!

26/07

It’s Friday! Not Thursday. Because I was *really* busy yesterday, so I ran out of time to get all the way through Emo!Thor.

XQ82XpK

HOWEVER!

As there hasn’t been a lot to report around Hus af Snark this week, I thought I may as well just give it to you with the Friday post. Because I’m reserving my Fridays for “in case I didn’t get to it” posts and whatnot.

But I’m not forgetting what I *really* like to put up on Fridays, because it’s the Fangirl post, SO let’s get this party started!

Wonder Woman Joins The Circus!

17/07

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.

And who better to help keep the giggles going than our delightful daughter of Hippolyte?

The Tragedy! The EMO! Sad Panda She!Hulk!

The Savage She-Hulk, #2 (March 1979)

Deathrace!

Tempestuous!Tuesday, Shulkanauts!

San Diego Comic Con is coming up. And we are not going to be there. Because we cannot, for the life of us, get our hands on tickets before they sell the hell out.

sadkitteh

And Patrick Warburton is going to be there with Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick.

*Le sigh*

So I must distract myself with gifs and She!Hulk.

It’s Getting Downright UGLY Up In Gotham.

Issue #3, Batman (Fall 1940)

Moody!Monday, Batfans!

batsign

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?
