Happy Birthday, Jessica Williams!
Jessica joined The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2012 at the tender age of 22, making her the show’s youngest cast member ever as well as its first black female correspondent.
“It’s impossible to be perfect, and you won’t do a good job if you’re too focused on proving yourself to others. Instead, I try to envision myself succeeding in whatever I’m doing.”
How can I get down?
In Greek, nostalgia literally means the pain from an old wound. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship. It’s a time machine. It goes backwards, forwards. It takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the Wheel. It’s called a Carousel. It lets us travel the way a child travels. Around and around, and back home again… to a place where we know we are loved.

I misheard a Match.com advert and was a bit confused.
Here’s why it’s an awesome time to cop comic books.
From the article: “Writer Frank J. Barbiere, whose Image title Five Ghosts is a swashbuckling adventure with a magical vibe, agrees. “It’s insane to see how much [the comic book world has] changed for the better, especially for creator-owned and new ideas,” he says. “Five or six years ago, a lot of the books, specifically on Image, were selling half to nowhere near what they’re selling now. Shops wouldn’t takes risks. People were not interested.”
Remender, too, was surprised that creator-owned books hadn’t caught on more quickly. “There’s The Hernandez Brothers with Love and Rockets, there’s Fantographics, there’sDrawn and Quarterly," he says, "I really thought it was going to happen much sooner in the mid ‘90s with the Vertigo crew [of] Grant Morrison, Peter Milligan, and Frank Quitely—what they were doing was quite similar, it was very smart.” “
I couldn’t agree more. I’ve never seen a more interesting, continuos outpouring of narrative storytelling. There is so much to choose from. Horror, sic-fi, personal, adventure, love stories. It’s all there. Image has really let the doors open and it’s a pleasure to see and read.
