Books I want
Take That, Adolf!: The Fighting Comic Books Of The Second World War - Mark Fertig,Jack Kirby,Will Eisner
Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud: The Rise and Reign of the Unruly Woman - Anne Helen Petersen

My sister handed me that first book, saying she wants it back.   I want to keep it.  I may splurge on it as a paper back book.   Barnes and Noble doesn't have it, so Amazon may be getting my business for this.

 

I flipped through this book and went, 'oh, shit, is this just punching Hitler in the face?'

 

To which my sister gleefully responded, 'yes, yes, it is.'   Of course, I was more gleeful about it.   Keep in mind, one half of my family was almost nearly wiped out by Hitler, and thus my sister and I believe that, say, punching nazis in the face is okay.   (I was worried, because she's a better person than I am, but her belief is also that they spout genocide and thus seeing Richard Spencer punched in the face to music is a thing of beauty.)

 

I want a copy of this book, dammit.   I do.   It's twenty bucks, though, and I can always borrow my sister's book for now.   (She let me have first read so this will be the priority this weekend.   It's mostly covers about comics set in WW2.   And, no, not all of the covers are punching Hitler, or nazis, in the face centric, but there are enough to make me go swoon-y over this.)

 

I saw Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud for the first time today about the rise of outspoken women, women who don't conform to the perception of what they should be.   Too gross, too pregnant, too queer, and I believe too rude are also plastered across the cover, although not part of the title.  

 

I was pretty much absent yesterday doing emotional wellbeing recovery things.   Watching Netflix - oddly enough, 13 Reasons Why calmed me down, and I now want to read the book which I hear is way better, playing games, just trying to breathe and not have a panic attack.   Thus I am still just as behind on reviews, and got very little reading done.   When I was present, I was sullen and withdrawn.  I think the whole buying a bathing suit didn't help: it reminds me of my body, makes me more present in my body, and it's not about being too fat.   It's about no matter how skinny I was, it's still meat, and I find organic life... um... too gross.   I've been reeling from doing this yesterday.  I've been too freaked out by water for a decade to take a bath - something I've managed to do recently, so progress - so I haven't had to go shopping for suits.   So that's ten years of not having to go through this grueling process that is an exercise in hatred of my body, futility, nihilism and not being able to find a comfortable top that fucking supports boobs. I already had a bottom and I have a rash guard shirt - UPF, made for the water - so I'll wear that.   Contemplating getting swim pants, but, ugh, expensive, and I want to see if I can make it. 

 

If anyone has suggestions, much appreciated.   Right now, I'm thinking a skirt wrap thing, and seeing if I can go in the water with that.   Although I might just go in the bikini and see what happens.   After all, I want to start swimming again - I used to love it! - and this will acclimate me.   I also have free access to the pool at school, yay, so I should get used to showing off my fat, gross body.   Maybe this book will help me cope with that, though. Or maybe not.   Someone suggested parading around in the bottoms until then, just to get used to it, and I'm thinking that might be best!  I've been walking a lot, and I want to swim, not to get slimmer so much as to feel healthier.   

 

Anyway, explanation of my going away yesterday.   I'm going to a friend's house to watch TV, although I'll try to get some comic reading in while he changes DVDs/under covers if it gets too boring.   Prolly not since we're hopefully watching more of The Maxx.  I will try to catch up on reviews in the next couple days, although I may wait until the weekend and flood you with like twenty or thirty reviews.   I know, right, cringe.  I'll try not to do that for you.   Little nervous today, but much better.   (Getting my oil changed because I remembered I needed it and panicked helped, and the guys at the place are go to are fucking amazing.)  

 

I don't have time to post the pic right now, but I've acquired a Black Bolt funko.   Yass.   I will most definitely post one of him and DD and some special guys all at once in a post in the future.   Hopefully tonight as a reward for getting through reviews, maybe tomorrow as a reward for getting through reviews.   Because I'll get to play with my guys!   (Yeah, yeah, I tend to focus on guys.   It's an attraction thing.   I'm not cutting women out of the equation, but I skew towards guys, mostly because I like 'em violent, and dumb, and well... tends to be guys.   Y'know what?   I just skew towards them.   Throw me some Virginia - Vision is not her last name - or some Arcee or Windblade or Nautica, and I'll bite, but I skew towards dudes.)

El Niño, der berühmte amerikanische Latinorapper, kann sein neues Leben selbst kaum begreifen. Er – der berüchtigte Womanizer, der nie genug Frauen haben konnte – ist einer einzigen Frau bedingungslos verfallen! Milias üppige Kurven bringen ihn wie am Anfang ihrer Beziehung um den Verstand, mit ihr lebt der sinnliche Latinlover die wildesten sexuellen Fantasien aus. Und Milias direkte, humorvolle Art ist einfach nur faszinierend...
Das gemeinsame Leben in Miami scheint perfekt, wäre da nicht dieses stechende Gefühl der Eifersucht. Moudi – El Niños bester Freund und Assistent – versteht sich mit Milia blendend, und die sehnsüchtigen Blicke, die Moudi ihr zuwirft, gefallen dem dominanten Superstar gar nicht …

Genau die richtige Leküre bei diesem Schmuddelwetter. Viel Vergnügen mit den Beiden.

Eure Beate

Jesse Petersen: Flip This Zombie
Flip This Zombie - Jesse Petersen

The first book in this series, Married with Zombies, is a cute and funny read with some zombie killing action, plus it sets up this book, so you'll want to read it first book before this one.

In the second book in Jesse Petersen's Living With the Dead series, there is a glimmer of hope that they may be able to help save the world:

The Zombie Apocalypse has been really good for Sarah and David as it literally saved their marriage and they are now closer than ever. Not only is their relationship surviving this new world but they are prospering with a new business of Zombie extermination. Well as there are lots of Zombies out there, there are a lot of business opportunities for them to bargain for supplies and survival gear. However, normally Zombie extermination involves killing the Zombies but when a scientist asks them to bring him live zombies to test the cure that he has developed, things take on a whole new aspect of danger. Sarah is excited to have some hope that they could be part of saving the world, while David gets more of a Mad scientist feel from him. Can Sarah and David survive the Zombie extermination business as now they are looking for trouble instead of avoiding it.

Once again this book was a cute and funny read with zombie killing (I know those word do not normally go together) and some fun ides thrown in. Why not start a business of Zombie extermination when the world has gone to the zombies, seems like a smart business decision as you would never be out of business. I like that Peterson took this fun idea in this book, and it makes me think why more people haven't offered their services up this way in other zombie books. Seems like a smart way to barter for supplies and killing zombies seems to be the only skills that David and Sarah have in this new world. I also liked that Peterson introduced the concept of a cure for "zombieism" and with this the concept of hope, as in most of the zombie books I have read, hope is never really encountered in the form of a cure. Additionally, I enjoyed the concept ofbionic zombies, which are a different type of zombies that appear to have the ability to think and work in teams. This makes zombie busting a lot more dangerous as these zombies put up more of challenge.

I like that the zombie apocalypse is not able to save everything in Sarah and David's relationship. You really do start to see some of the cracks in their relationship as they challenge each others beliefs, so I guess the zombie apocalypse does not fix everything. We also get to see a big difference between the two when it comes to hope. Sarah really wants to think that life can go back to normal and will do anything to help make it happen, while David does not believe in hope, more just wants to take everything a day at a time and just focus on surviving. Still the banter between the two of them is always funny as the dry humour they have needed to develop.

This is a good addition to the series and I like the ideas that Peterson presented in this book. This series is for those who want a fun and easy read set in the zombie apocalypses but not skimping on the zombie killing. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Enjoy!!!
