Dear Students,

Once you pick your character name, how might you draw yourself as that character?

Here are some of the practice pages I made in my composition notebook while I tried to work out how I’d do it.

Professor Spooky Bootsy or Professor Monkey Bootsy?

It will change, depending on the day but  I will always need my star-glasses on.

Sincerely,

Professor Sincere Bootsy

I always wanted the reboot of Ghostbusters to be four girl-ghostbusters. Like, four normal, plucky women living in New York City searching for Mr. Right and trying to find jobs — but who also bust ghosts. I’m not an idiot, though. I know the demographic for Ghostbusters is teenage boys, and I know they would kill themselves if two ghostbusters had a makeover at Sephora. I just have always wanted to see a cool girl having her first kiss with a guy she’s had a crush on, and then have to excuse herself to go trap the pissed-off ghosts of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire or something. In my imagination, I am, of course, one of the ghostbusters, with the likes of say, Emily Blunt, Taraji Henson, and Natalie Portman. Even if I’m not the ringleader, I’m definitely the one who gets to say “I ain’t afraid a no ghost.” At least the first time.

Mindy Kaling, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

I would watch the fuck out of this.

Lady Ghostbusters? Yes please!

Fact-checking

Whitney Houston’s album - like she only had one album? SMH - didn’t go #1 after her untimely passing. Her Greatest Hits album charted at #6 the week after her death, and Whitney had twenty-eight songs in the iTunes top 100 that week.

Follow-up

So as the week has gone on, I keep seeing more rememberances of Robin Williams. The one that stood out to me was Marc Maron reposting an episode of WTF where he interviewed Robin. The hardest thing about listening to this podcast is the honest sadness that you hear in Maron’s voice at the beginning and end. http://www.stitcher.com/s?eid=35080658

Also this quick read from Brain Pickings: http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2014/08/15/o-captain-my-captain/

******

We might want to follow up on this on a later show: Henry Rollins wrote a really callous thing about suicide after Robin Williams, calling people who commit suicide “people who blew it”, and Megan Seling rightfully lit him up for it:

No, Henry Rollins, Fuck You And Your Stupid Ideas About Suicide
