"Loving the Alien"

MTv Geek! loves Dancy. If you'd told me, twenty years ago, that I'd ever be lauded by any aspect of MTv, I'd have told you to fuck off and stop smoking on the crack. But, here you go:

The real stand-out though, was two pages of Caitlín R. Kiernan’s Alabaster: Shelter story (the other half was in the Star Wars/Serenity book), which had all the emotion, horror, humanity, and incredible character of her Alabaster: Wolves series. The headliners were cute, but the angel was the centerfold.

In celebration of this amazingly fucking bow-tie review – I mean, I bested Stars Wars, Serenity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The Guild – I shall celebrate by posting the the video from the song from which the above pun was derived (and if you're a kiddo, you likely don't remember this song; as a teen, I loved it...and the mildly naughty video). And if my sentences are less coherent tonight, and seemed possessed of less syntactical integrity, blame the bird:

That is indeed hallucinatory, but you deserve it! Go, you.

You deserve every accolade for Alabaster. I think that it revived my love for the graphic novel form the same way that Bast: Eternity Game did 10 years ago! I'm hoping that every "kid" that picks up an issue of Alabaster also seeks out Drowning Girl and Confessions of a Five Chambered Heart. I want someone to experience the same feeling I had when I read your work for the first time!

This sort of crossover would be brilliant.

Does this mean I have to give up the crack now?

I'll just leave that up to you.

The great reviews are very well-deserved. Congratulations! I hope this means I'll be making regular trips to my comic shop to read more about Dancy for a long time to come!

Goes ditto for me; I can't say it any better than Subtlesttrap did. As I said before on FB, kiddos better catch the Caitlin Wave, because she is the new 'it girl'.
Congrats, CRK. I can't wait to see you in Boston, too.

Who as the old "it girl"? Has anyone told her she's out of work?

Woot!

I'm trying to figure out if your icon is best subtitled "I can kill you with my brain" or "It's standing right behind you".

"The headliners were cute, but the angel was the centerfold."

Welp. Time to camp more permutations of Dancy's name in CoX.
Also, I've never actually seen the video for this.

Either works for me.

Also, I've never actually seen the video for this.

Wow. Where were you?

You probably don't want to know. But I'll say that I only had cable for a brief period when this video would have been in rotation, and I just never sought it out afterward. Plenty familiar with the song, though. "Freeze Frame" was more of my style at the roller rink.

I was nuts about the whole album, which I still have on vinyl.
