Tweet of the Day, MARVEL At The Stupidity edition.

Ehh, ehh? Get it? GET IT?

I’m sorry. I knew it was a bad idea when I wrote the headline.

…BUT NOT AS BAD AS MARVEL’S!

Tweet of the Day, This Is Vaguely NSFW – But Is It INAPPROPRIATE? edition.

I mean. It’s a statue of Bacchus. I don’t actually know what the god’s old rites were, but I am somehow confident that doing a ‘bump and grind’ happened from time to time. Particularly if alcohol was involved.

Self-Tweet of the Day, Always Be Closing edition.

It really did jump up a buck between refreshes, mind you. My laugh at that was enough to justify the Tweet. The rest? Swift adaptation to market conditions, my droogies. Swift adaptation to market conditions.

PS: I don’t think I’ve ever read HILLBILLY ELEGY, actually. It’s not my usual style.

Tweet of the Day, The Books Behind FROZEN DREAMS edition.

It’s interesting.

Sweet Silver Blues is a stand-in for Glen Cook’s Garrett Files generally, and obviously Cast A Deadly Spell is itself. What was interesting was that when I went to go look up Sweet Silver Blues my fingers typed out The Lonely Silver Rain, and that’s absolutely correct. Tom Vargas owes a good bit to Travis McGee. Also Carl Kolchak, and even Eddie Valiant, but the meme asked only for three.

Tweet of the Day, God Bless The US District Court For The Northern District Of The Great State Of Texas (Fort Worth Division) edition.

This is potentially a great day for the American Republic.

Tweet of the Day, They Sent Lawyers, Guns, And Money edition.

And, indeed, the ordure is about to hit the winnowing blade.

Via @KateDrawsComics, and more here. Note, however, that this case involves musical catalogues, and that Sony, Universal, and Warner are no doubt willing to negotiate a payoff (and licensing fees). Does that make this a pointless lawsuit? …Not really, because it’ll establish that ‘fair use’ does not extend this far. And that will help immensely with all the other anti-AI lawsuits out there.

Tweet of the Day, Submitted Without Context edition.

I mean, you’ll be able to puzzle it out on your own, but I feel no urge to scribble a mustache on this particular work of art.

Tweet of the Day, IYKYK edition.

If you don’t know: rest assured, it’s hilarious. But… maybe you shouldn’t delve too deeply on this one, shall we say? I treasure whatever innocence my readers still retain, after so long in this Fallen world of ours.
