I made a thing and I 100% encourage sharing it with as many people as possible through all means possible.
Yes, please. As someone who has spent the last three holiday seasons working retail, I have had more than my fair share of people blame me for things that are far, far beyond my control. Please don’t take out your frustration on employees.
Or, if you are purchasing things online and you have to speak to a customer service representative, please be nice to them as well. It is very likely they are working a lot of long hours for the holidays and not getting to see their loved ones.

Genderbent and humanized Autobots? I had no idea I needed this in my life so much. Look at Bumblebee! SO CUTE. AND GRAMMA ALPHA TRION. More of this, less of “everyone is some burly white dude”
Y’know, you put Velma in a plug suit and suddenly she’s Rei Ayanami.
Does that make HDW Asuka?

Weird Newscasters: Colin’s anchor names.
They always pair Colin with Not One Of The Main Three Dudes during the Newscast Segment, I see.
Just to clarify…
I’ve gotten asked this a few times. Why do I read Spider-man? I guess folks don’t think he’s as awesome as Batman.
No shocker here but when I was a kid I was the shy awkward type. I was Picked on a lot and got into many fights (I mean I got into a LOT of fights, my Mom knew the Principal on a first name basis). My best and only friend was branching out and making more friends while I was left in the dust. It was difficult talking to my parents about this stuff which was never their fault I just wanted to be the best son I could be but I still lashed out and gave them problems.
Then I met a guy named Peter Parker.
The first image of Spider-Man I have was a trading card from a set that came out earlier that year (1990) and he was in the now infamous black suit. I still have that very card in a 3 ring binder with the entire set of cards. I immediately latched onto that character and read everything I could get my hands on. From his early awkward days in high school to his coming out of his shell in collage. From the tragedy of Gwen’s death, to the celebration of his marriage to Mary jane. the classic villains of Sandman and Doc Ock to the dark mirrors of himself Venom and Carnage. And the thing that defines him to me, the reason I keep coming back to him. He was me.
I saw myself in Peter Parker in ways I’d never seen in anyone else, and in him I also saw what I could be. I slowly started to come out of my shell and made more friends. Gained a sense of humor that some find hilarious but a few may find annoying. Formed relationships that for better or worse defined and matured me. I was no longer the quiet, shy nerd,(ok I’m still a nerd) and while Peter Parker was still there I started to find my own path and carved it out.
So that’s it. Batman may have the gadgets and Superman has all the cool powers. But I will always see Peter Parker as myself, and will always come back to him no matter what crazy stories they hand me. Clones, deals with the devil, Spider-Ock. I’ll be there for Him like he was there for me.
