Star Wars has no good guys.

There is a lengthy Star Wars argument behind the readmore. You have been warned.

…ooh, plot bunnies.

If owning a gun and knowing how to use it worked, the military would be the safest place for a woman. It’s not.

If women covering up their bodies worked, Afghanistan would have a lower rate of sexual assault than Polynesia. It doesn’t.

If not drinking alcohol worked, children would not be raped. They are.

If your advice to a woman to avoid rape is to be the most modestly dressed, soberest and first to go home, you may as well add “so the rapist will choose someone else”.

If your response to hearing a woman has been raped is “she didn’t have to go to that bar/nightclub/party” you are saying that you want bars, nightclubs and parties to have no women in them. Unless you want the women to show up, but wear kaftans and drink orange juice. Good luck selling either of those options to your friends.

Or you could just be honest and say that you don’t want less rape, you want (even) less prosecution of rapists.

The Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan comic for May 14, 2001 has been remastered.

I won’t lie: the raw scans for this episode were an unholy train wreck, as was the originally published version, in which big errors from the raw scan were left uncorrected. This new version has been cleaned up, but is still not what I would call good. Only a full redraw would make it good, and I’m not willing to do that right now.

I wonder why the quality of the art dropped so steeply in the second half of “Babble, Banter, Brouhaha”. It started off very well, but something changed. Did I get bored? Did I rush those last pages out because something else was taking up most of my time? It was twelve years ago, and I can’t for the life of me remember. This is why you should journal, everyone.

Upon first listen, I enjoyed this a lot. Big sound, unconventional song structures, great playing, very proggy, occasionally even taking side trips into Yes-land. Not sure yet if the songs are memorable; for that, I need a few more listens. Lead-off single “Hell To Pay”, a fist-pumping rocker, is not representative.

Now What ?!

The Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan comic for May 11, 2001 has been remastered. This one had a huge set of footnotes for some reason, which I’m not reproducing here.

This comic, the Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan comic for May 10, 2001, was missing from the archives for years, probably since the move to Modern Tales in 2002. It has now been restored in remastered form.
