"In defense of my 30 year old self, he had an editorial mandate to amuse and provoke, unlike the 59 year old Alan Moore who insults, condemns and hurls baseless accusations at his contemporaries and their work in almost every interview he gives. I find it tragic but quite pertinent to this piece that the loudest voice in our business – the one that carries the furthest and is taken most seriously by the mainstream media – is the one that offers nothing but contempt and denunciation, with barely a single good word to say about any of the many accomplished and individual writers currently working in mainstream comics, let alone the wealth of brilliant indie creators.
Does he ever, for instance, use his high media profile to do anything other than steer potential readers away from modern comic books and their creators – while over-playing his own achievements and placing himself centre stage at every turn? How hard would it be to say something encouraging, positive, or hopeful about the generally improved standard of writing in all comic books these days? Or at least say nothing at all.
And if I may untangle the logic behind so much of his hectoring: Moore constantly reiterates the idea that all modern comics are copied from stuff he did in the ’80s – and they’re all rubbish!
Is he genuinely saying that his influence has been entirely malignant? If he actually believed that, I’d almost feel sorry for him. I see my own influence all over the place and I’m quite chuffed."

"

You mustn’t worry about me.

My father often told me that only those with weak and cowardly natures abandon themselves to sorrow. Suffering is a vanity.

Poets have a right to vanity and pride; they steal the power of creation from the gods.

They remake the world with words and in the image of their dreams.

The rest of us must then live in it.

"

If you ever feel like you’ve fucked up just remember that a whole TEAM of people designed this cash machine to be 15 inches off the ground and no one along the way thought ‘maybe this has a design flaw’

"Cash machine"

Yes. Here in the UK people call them cash machines, I know that’s an odd concept to get your head around but I think together we can do it

actually thats really handy for folk like me, just saying

yea, i just love how something that inconveniences abled people is considered a flaw, but something that is literally exclusive of disabled people, to the point where it renders us unable to do these things without help [if at all], is just considered the norm; there’s no pictures of ATM’s that are way too tall or made without braille, broken elevators, completely inaccessible entrances, &etc. floating around on this site, referring to them as flawed [or, lets call it what it really is: morally reprehensible], because abled people have the world so tailored to their needs, they don’t even see that shit - and when they do, they just shrug their shoulders and think, ”eh, oh well”.

i’d love to line up all the people who used that and ask them ”gee, isn’t it extremely hard - not to mention, humiliating - to use something that is so obviously made for everyone not like you, that they didn’t even care how it would affect you? now take the 15 seconds you spent at that machine and apply to the whole fucking world.”

adj. To channel the swagger inside of you and turn it into pure teleportation energy.

i.e. “dude, this party blows, i’m swagperating out of here”
