Ok here’s my argument why Spiderman is better than all superheros or at least better than Batman:
Peter Parker actually had real problems in real life. In the beginning of the series he was just a lonely teenager who felt inadequate to everyone else. He was antisocial and literally afraid of talking to chicks.
No one taught him how to do stuff, he didn’t have a mentor (well he did, but uncle Ben died- and Peter was a freaking orphan) so he figured shit out for himself.
He didn’t need a lame sidekick to get stuff done (I’m looking at you, Robin.)
He had a Spidey sense. A Spidey sense.
Peter Parker didn’t have any money, unlike Bruce Wayne who was loaded (which was the whole reason he was even a “superhero”.)
He didn’t need a cape or tricked out automobile to be a badass.
He was a photographer, that’s a pretty neat day job.
Peter eventually settled down with Mary Jane (they were even friends first, it was pretty cute) but Batman’s still a playboy.
Spiderman took on all the coolest vilians. Doctor Octopus? Green Goblin? Hobgoblin? Mysterio? Venom? Jackal? Yeah.
He was bitten by a radioactive spider. I just happen to think that’s pretty neat. And then after he was bitten he was all like “I’m going to see if these powers actually work, so I think I’ll wrestle a pro even though I’m all weak.” And guess what? He won.
"With great power comes great responsibility." Did Batman give you any rad lines like that? Didn’t think so.
I scored using your radical playlist and you introduced me to Girls and Sean Hayes and Metric. I am forever in debt to you and hey you is one of my fav songs so if I lived in Indiana Id be down to smoke you out anytime or makeout with you to good music- which is why im on anon cause I have a girlfriend and shes a big fan of yours. Have a good day dude
Well, yeah, Hey You is sort of a perfect song. And I’m glad you like Sean Hayes- I think you could just loop Turnaroundturnmeon for a great makeout session. It’s a very sexy song. Girls is great (that song, though, right down to the tambourine- I love it so much) - listen to the whole album it’s stellar. And I’d be down with that as well, my grey faced friend. But wow- really? I’m honored. I must learn to use my powers for the greater good of getting people laid.
I have a million mixtapes laying around my room and car if you’d ever like me to post another. Making them is sort of a lame hobby of mine. To think my mother thought it was a waste of my time. Study, she said, do your homework, she said, little did she know I could make people procreate using righteous tunes. And what is a D in calculus compared to the gift of life?
whaaat what is this from? Also, have you seen the 60s movie adaptation of “The Masque of the Red Death”? I watched it this morning and it is pretty amazing.
It’s from this crazy old Spanish horror movie “El Baron del Terror” or “The Braniac” and if you’re talking about the movie with Vincent Price I’ve seen it- it’s one of his best. I’ve literally seen every Vincent Price movie.
My boyfriend braided my hair last night. Is he a keeper?
Oh my god yes, that’s like my fetish. I wish you two a long and happy relationship filled with great adventures and sex and conversation. Hopefully he’s cool with you drawing on his pants and watching 1950’s b horror movies on Saturday nights too. Actually no I don’t hope that because then I’d steal him from you.
So you guys keep asking me how to meet cool interesting guys and girls.
Well first off stop looking for boys or chicks at school. It’s a lot more fun to hang out with people who aren’t from school because they won’t have heard whatever bullshit rumors are said about you and then if you date them people at school won’t have shit to say about it.
When I’m not at home being antisocial I like hanging out at skate parks, records stores, comic book shops, conventions, art museums, head shops, Goodwill, the bridge in Broadripple, Half Priced Books, Crown Hill cemetery, the canal, little local punk shows, or just riding the public bus system. Oh and go to cool little events, like there’s this theater pretty close to me that does midnight showings of cult movies and I always go. So, I mean, hang out at places that interest you and you’ll meet people interested in the same stuff. People as weird as you are. You’ll automatically probably have stuff in common.
Anyway, I’ll be back later to post new stuff and get caught up on answering asks. Much love.
Sometimes I creep on tumblr people and I find two people that I think belong together so I put their urls in each others ask because I secretly hope that someday they’ll meet and fall in love and reproduce and I’ll be responsible for it all. Seriously, it’s fun, I’m surprised it isn’t a game.
So if you guys ever find someone who’s perfect for me leave their url in my ask and I’ll creep on them from a casual cyber distance.
Hey- I can’t stay long I just got home from work and I’m leaving in two minutes but I figured I’d post this while I was thinking about it.
Totally forgot but back in July I made a makeout mixtape. I modified it a little, the original had weirder stuff like Talking Heads which isn’t really sexy music. It’s in order too, so it slows down at the end. If you’re interested.
Teen Age Riot- Sonic Youth (Great start off song, sort of loosens you up, makes it feel a little less uncomfortable. This whole album is great for making out.)
Hey so I’m going to work and then I have plans tonight (I know, I’m just as surprised as you are.) Actually they’re with Brian, so, yeah. I’m pretty stoked. I planned an outfit and all (something I never do) and I might even wear mascara.
But anyway my point is new stuff won’t be posted until late. Like 11-12. Sorry.
In other news I finally figured out how to reply to replies. Hooplah!
Have you ever actually walked up to a guy and asked him to fuck? I've heard that advice so many times but I've never heard of anyone actually doing and or it working.
Oh my goodness yes- sort of. We were at a skate park and this beatiful boy was there and Margo triple dog dared me to talk to him. So I went over and I was “Hi, I’m Taylor-Ruth and I don’t have very big boobs but I do like my butt and I taste like Big Red- would you like to go back to my car?” And he was actually really cool, he sort of laughed it off and we talked for a while and went back to my car. We didn’t actually have sex but he still calls me if he’s on my part of town.
Point being, I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t work if you’re just cool about it and a little self deprecating.
Hey if you like my stuff and like comics and drawings about teenage girl stuff (or maybe just teenage stuff in general) please go check out the lovely ladies at http://theespeciallytallgiant.tumblr.com/. They are really talented, have a unique style, and I’m looking forward to possibly doing some collaboration work with them in the future.
[I hate promos too but these girls deserve it, I love their work.]
