I've been ridiculously busy this week because in the midst of graduating from college I also got a new job and have already started. It's just data entry (read: incredibly, horribly boring) but it's for a non-profit I've volunteered with for years and they're paying me $12 an hour so I'm really not complaining. The most obnoxious thing is that the internet sometimes doesn't work. Very frustrating! But the guy I'm workingclosest with is a friend of mine and I have a couple of other friends working here too so it all evens out I think.

In other news, I saw the x-men movie last night and spoilers! )

So. Yeah, I saw V for Vendetta the day it came out (or actually at 10pm the night before if you want to get technical) and I've been reading various flisters' reactions to it and I just. v for vendetta book spoilers )


comics exchange?

I've been reading a lot of trade paperback comics lately and two things have come to my attention a) they're fucking awesome and b) they're fucking expensive. So I've been pondering the idea of some sort of fannish comics lending community. For instance: I have volumes 1-4 of preacher and I'm interested in reading Watchmen, if there was some sort of community where I could post what I'm looking for and also what I have to lend, maybe I could find someone who'd be interested in doing a (temporary) trade. Like a book borrowing club or something. Obviously there could be some problems, operating on the honor system, with not getting your books back, but I don't know how big of a problem it could be. Would anyone be interested in something like that? Or do you have any ideas about how it could be done better?
