What do you want me to write about?
As usual, no guarantees.
Mass Effect 2 or Dragon Age: Origins.
Alternatively Macross Frontier.
Randomly select an olympic event for you and/or Flapjacks to liveblog.
More movies you (we) may not have seen but should.
1. Does anyone in Canada actually like S. Palin or do you all recognize what an ignoramus she is?
2. What is wrong with a people that wants to put someone stupider than they are in charge of them?
3. Are you seriously not going to comment on Paul Levitz returning to Legion? I have no concept of whether this is good news or bad news and need you to tell me what to think (I actually no very little about the Legion at all aside from that period of time I was a Chris Sprouse fan and your own interesting storylines).
The best Canadian TV of the last ten years.
Canadian Border Services Agency non-disclosure of laptop data search and seizure policies.
What the TTC can learn from Science Fiction.
Instruction manual for public figures that want to sleep around. Scorecard to use when evaluating their discretion in indiscretions when eventually discovered.
Your thoughts on this:
More “why I should write _____” posts. They’re very fun to read.
Anything recommending books, particularly sci-fi ones would be welcome. You’ve mentioned plenty of comics but it terms of literature I only remember you making fun of it and not really suggesting any
What Rande said about Palin, along with your thoughts as a fantasy/regular baseball fan about Mark McGwire and the steroids controversy.
Batman is soon to be shunted through time by Grant Morrison in a miniseries where he dons several variant Bat-lawmaker costumes. Given that Batman is a big, popular character who is often in the spotlight, and given that you have shown a healthy interest in forgotten-and-yet awesome classic DC characters…which one would you have take Batman’s place in the trek across the ages?
How to make Americans give a crap about non-US heroes.
Gadget Hackwrench and her popularity on the Internet.
Disney TV cartoons of the late 80s-early 90s.
Rande, I like your ideas but I just couldn’t help reading your post as a hidden insult towards MGK:
“…2. What is wrong with a people that wants to put someone stupider than they are in charge of them?
3. …need you to tell me what to think…”
hahaha. Good stuff. 😉
Because you didn’t tell us not to ask…
More “I should write…” posts. Strange, Legion, some other book, I don’t care, I just love your comic concept posts.
I really enjoy the posts that are ABOUT writing. I find them insightful.
If we keep asking for your thoughts on Legion of 3 Worlds and the current Legion status quo, eventually you have to respond to us.
Also, more El Tyrano Magnifico.
Walt Kelly’s Pogo.
Or even a parody of your Why I Should Write posts. Why I Should Write Uncle Scrooge or something.
Any follow-up discussion on the Norway Spiral would be nice.
More short stories!
Why you never update your Blogroll. Also how to deal with moose…
Batman: The Brave and the Bold getting canned.
the new Gorillaz album.
I’d like to see what you think Mankind’s Greatest Inventions are. (My top three: The toilet, the Choco-Taco, Pants.)
“Batman: The Brave and the Bold getting canned. ”
Your top five favorite non-genre books/authors and why.
Why Doctor Strange should write MightyGodKing dot com.
Yea, say what? Where did you hear this?
Also, write about Skydoll, the Eurocomic Marvel published.
Or, barring that, another “Movies you should watch because they are good.”
Cool differences between the US and Canada that we might not know about.
Something about Bloom County.
Another vote for more ‘Movies you should watch because they are good’.
Now that the last movie is out, a Trailer Park Boys post-mortem.
Dragon Age or Obama’s current travails. Ideally at the same time.
Ha, but not intentional. I also did not mean to misspell “know” but I guess I was in that Palin moment.
Also, I second the Wombat’s suggestion of a parody turn at “Why I Should Write…”
I would love to see a variant on the “Why I should write …” series. Specifically, “Why I shouldn’t write …” and give us your worst idea, with the aid of Photoshop, on various comic properties.
As an example, George Lucas did this with the Special Editions by having Han shoot first
Detailed and humorous account of why Avatar is a terrible movie.
Janelle Monáe’s new album. Once it comes out. Which, judging by her twitter, will be VERY SOON.
“Why I should write the Watchmen sequel”
In no particular order
1) I’ll chime in on Sarah Palin. Tea Party will also work.
2) More “I should write Doctor Strange”
3) Again, anything on the cable company/network fights here in Canada?
How about something about DC War Comics. Haunted Tank, Unknown Soldier, right up to Sgt Rock. I cut my teeth on those comics that used to be my Dads and still think they are the best books. You can have Superman. I’ll take Bulldozer and Shortround any day.
Toronto’s mayoral race (or, does Adam Giambrone really have the all the political instinct of a ham sandwich?), please.
If we’re looking for parody “Why I should write …” columns, I’d like to see MGK’s take on “Why I should write Hitman Jr.”
Your Siege post brought up some interesting points. What do you think about the problem of violence in comics? Should the mainstream comics be a bit more conservative in regards to the blood and guts in order to appeal to a broader audience? Or should comics now simply focus on the older audience?
More Who’s Whos
How you are avoiding the hype and foolishness that is the Winter Olympics.
Played any fun boardgames lately?
I remember reading this back when it was new, and didn’t expect it to drop off the radar for good. Haven’t been able to find any developments about it, and wonder if anything is known about what happened to said money.
More analysis on the insanity of Betty Cooper.
Thoughts on The Princess and the Frog, if you have any.
These are almost all good suggestions. How about some more tunesblogging? This was a great post, and more music updates like that would be cool. I point to that post rather than your older single song links because it seemed to provoke more discussion and have more to say about the songs. Other older features worth revisiting: “Things I Liked This Week and Things I Didn’t” and (again) “Movies You Have Not Seen (But Should See (Because They Are Good)).
“Also, more El Tyrano Magnifico.”
EL TYRANO MAGNIFICO MUST RETURN!
The method in which you plan to overthrow the offices of DC Comics, removing any creative personnel who thing the nostalgia bandwagon is the only way to successfully drive comic sales, replacing them with teams who are filled with love and care of the project, not some ego-fueled hack.
Or more “Why I Should Write the Legion”.
Comics people should be reading.
Seconded on El Tyrano Magnifico. Specifically the origin story for the Lucha Lawyer. Or is that Lawyer Libre?
Second the music post request. (More specific request- who’s your favorite female artist? I need some new stuff to sing along with.)
Revive Improved Archie.
A comparison of our Reform Party and the American Tea Party movement, and anything the Americans can learn from the Canadian experience with a successful fledgling grassroots movement.
I was always curious about how you put together your post on Forty Short Reasons I Will Love Comics Forever. Did you have those panels just lying around as jpegs on your hard drive? Were you collecting them over time, as you found new and better reasons to enjoy comics? Did you wake up one day and say, “Bless me! I should make a post of forty images from my favorite comics ever!”?

I would’ve attached it to the text in the paragraph above, but I hate HTML, and it hates me.)
From what I understand, socialized medicine in Canada works and doesn’t have major issues. (Correct me if I’m wrong.)
Couldn’t the US base a health care system on that instead of trying to make our own and messing it up horribly?
I would like to know what you thought of the Mark Waid Strange mini that just finished this week.
Personally, I’d rather read about Steven Strange and his new apprentice, especially given that Strange can’t really do magic anymore, then whatever Doc/Bro Voodoo is up to.
my mom was born in vancouver bc in 1948. she was adopted and brought to portland, oregon a few years later, and a few years after that gained american citizenship, simultaneously losing her canadian citizenship due to restrictions on dual citizenship at the time.
then last year we read about the new citizenship act amendment – http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/citizenship/rules.asp
as best as i can understand the FAQ over there, she retroactively regained her dual-citizenship going back to when she lost it as a kid in the 1950s, and consequently, legally she was now a canadian citizen when my brothers and i were born here in america (1978 and 1981), which now retroactively makes /us/ dual-citizens as well.
a – is this more or less accurate? are there a bunch of wierd exceptions i should look into? (obviously we need to contact the closest consulate for better info, but since you’re in law school and taking questions…)
b – if this is true, am i correct that we don’t need to apply for citizenship itself, since we already legally have it, but rather need only to apply for proof of citizenship cards? (and possibly register as dual-citizens with the american government?)
c – if i /am/ now a citizen and acquire the id card, having lived in america my whole life, what are my restrictions on, say, moving to canada?
can i just come up there with a suitcase, find a job and an apartment, start paying taxes, register to vote, get a drivers license, get health-care, and be good without a visa? does this make moving to canada, for me, akin to moving to another state down here, where i can go wherever i like as long as i update my paperwork (drivers license / voters registration / insurance etc) on the other end?
Oh…I would also very much like a Who’s Who on the Calculator, a silver age villain I have a soft spot for.
I’d love to hear your take on the Tea-Baggers saying Captain America is anti-American:
Ever read The Goon?
