Free Form Comments

Say whatever you want to in the comments to this post -- random, off topic thoughts, ideas, suggestions, questions, recommendations, criticisms (which can be anonymous), surveys, introductions if you have never commented before, personal news, self-promotion, requests to be added to the blog roll and so on. If I forget, remind me. Remember these comments can be directed at all the readers, not just me.

ALSO. You can use this space to re-ask me questions you asked me before that I failed to answer because I was too busy.

AND you can use this space to comment on posts that are old enough that no one is reading the comments threads anymore.

You do not have to have a blogger account or gmail account to post a comment -- you can write a comment, write your name at the bottom of your comment like an e mail, and then post using the "anonymous" option.

WRITING FOR THIS BLOG. If I see a big free form comment that deserves more attention, I will pull it and make it its own post, with a label on the post and on the sidebar that will always link to all the posts you write for this blog. I am always looking for reviews of games, tv, movies, music and books.

We're about four episodes into 'Mad Men: Season 2' over here (UK) and I think it's better than season 1. (I seem to remember reading that it got negative reviews in the U.S.)

but then I'm also enjoying 'Damages: Season 2' more so than the first season as well.

I hope we have gotten to the point where people won't be offended to see religious icons as superhero, vigilante types.

The best example I can think of would be Gabriel. I'm using him as a protagonist in a "practice run."

I don't know anything about comics, but I know most of the people here do, and I was reading about this Constantine guy and am trying to figure out if he's a religious figure.

If you mean John Constantine (a character who’s published in a monthly comic called ‘Hellblazer’ and was made into a Keanu Reeves film) then his name is intended as a allusion to the religious figure’s name but nothing more.

It’s a horror comic that does occasionally feature angels and demons, but it tends to be in a sensationalistic manner (rather than a high minded theological one.)

One word Fins: Preacher. It features a main character who is possessed by a being that is the offspring of an angel and a demon.

Lucifer has actually been the main character in his own comic which spun out of Neil Gaiman's use of the character in The Sandman.

I might have to let you borrow some Sandman...
