Gentle Readers, I have a few things to confess:
1) I don't like Alan Moore's stuff. Well, ok, I like From Hell and I kind of like V for Vendetta, but The Watchmen, Promethea, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and all his other works I feel are have gratuitous violence towards women, and honestly, hella dirty-old-man-ish. (There's always some young woman having sex with some old old dude because he has a "beautiful soul" or really for no reason in particular. He needs to show the shoe on the other foot).
2). I think MIA is overrated. I really do. She's kind of like a hip hop music version of Amy Tan. I tried to like her, really really. I just can't do it.
