I still have to post full thoughts on Stardust, but I'll readily say I LOVED it and think everyone should go see it. :)
Tomorrow night we're going to check out the 'Bat's Day in the Park', a gathering of goth/punk/metal/etc. people at Disneyland. Unfortunately neither of us has a Disneyland pass, so we won't be going into the park, but we're going to have tons of fun anyway! We're going to hit the Bat's Day Black Market at the Doubletree Guest Suites, where we'll probably both end up buying BPAL scents (the Neil ones I've wanted to buy since they came out but didn't want to buy without knowing what they smell like. I'm sure Bridgie will end up with the Aziraphale scent, and I might end up with Crowley, to complete the set. XD) After that we'll go to Downtown Disney and shop and maaaaybe eat at Rainforest Cafe, even though we shouldn't because that would be really WRONG and BAD. I'm going to be pathetic and look for some clothes for the Build-a-Bear Bridgie gave me a while ago; my kitty had a punky school skirt and shirt combo, but the skirt keeps falling off.
Anyway, I'll be taking lots of pictures, so I'll post some here. It'll be so great to see Disneyland overrun with metalheads and punks and goths. Have to decide what to wear...
I heard about this a few days ago, on Warren Ellis's feed. Mike Wieringo passed away on Sunday. He was an incredible artist, and designed/co-created, among other things, Tellos (which was so beautiful) and one of my absolute favorite characters, Impulse. Fuck. Rest in peace, 'Ringo. You were one of the modern greats, as far as I'm concerned.
Edit: I just found Wieringo's Deviantart account through someone on my DevArt friends list. His gallery is full of beautiful works, and I just favorited a bunch of them, including his amazing Harry Potter ones, his plus-size Wonder Woman, a lot of great sci-fi and steampunk-esque pieces...he was such a talent.
