[Quote for the Monday] “Development requires democracy, the genuine empowerment of the people.”

[Source] Aung San Suu Kyi (1945 ) / Burmese political leader and human rights activist / The Times (London).

Tuesday June 30:

A strong dark midnight trip at a smoked-out squat party on the Haight; moody modern post-psychedleica at its fuzzed-up languid apex.

[#SoundBytes] THE MIRROR EXPLODES by THE WARLOCKS http://www.thewarlocks.com/ / TeePee Records http://www.teepeerecords.com/ .

Wednesday July 1:

Victory: I did it. The vaccine that will prevent AIDS. No one will ever have to watch someone die like that. Like Marie. My Marie. Like me.

[Bio] Mark Best has had short fiction published in various genres. Complete list at http://is.gd/1kQji .

Thursday July 2:

Vampire hottie carries a cool katana, but two cool fight scenes do not a good movie make. In this instance, blood is thinner than water.

[Quote for the Friday] “I have a simple philosophy. Fill what’s empty. Empty what’s full. And scratch where it itches.”

[Source] Alice Lee Longworth (1884 1980) / U.S. society figure.

Saturday July 4:

“How far does it go?” she asked as we fell through the subspace burrow. I shrugged apologetically: “Theoretically, forever.”

[Bio] Gareth’s stories have appeared in 20 mags and 10 languages. He drinks lots of tea.  http://www.garethdjones.co.uk/ .

Sunday July 5:

It’s all about time, it’s all about space, it’s all about Captain America not being dead but temporally adrift. Familiar, but interesting.

[#ShineComics] CAPTAIN AMERICA: REBORN #1 (of 5) by Ed Brubaker (script), Bryan Hitch and Butch Guice (art); Marvel, 2009, $3.99 .

[Ed] Because of the general sluggishness I blame the heat, not the Hoegaarden…;-) an extra ShineComics, courtesy of David A. McDonald:

The Atom pulls a Jack Bauer and Green Lantern gets dominant (and Green Arrow submissive) as the JLA goes all 24. Art’s good, script’s not.

[#ShineComics Extra] JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE #1 (of 7) by James Robinson (story), Mauro Cascioli (art); DC, 2009, $3.99 .
