So I've already posted two of Marvel's Millennial Visions one-shots, which featured alternate reality/future versions of Marvel characters. However, the very first one published was centered entirely around the X-Men, and was so popular it not only got a sequel (which I've also posted scans from here) and the previously mentioned one-shots, it helped inspire the Exiles. In fact, Nocturne and her reality's X-Men first appeared here (though my scans seem to be missing her, sadly).

i think i may need to own this shirt
tee: neutral - because decisions are hard
In other news, the ankle continues to be interesting and changeable. 69 hours after injury it looks all bruisy and is indeed still swollen. I got a whole lot of flak on fb for OMG Have It Looked At, despite my having turned it in front of two nurses, and it supporting weight immediately. Ice and elevation helped a whole lot, enough that I thought it was a matter of the rugburn from the mat that it had hurt scary much, and then learned otherwise when I tried to walk to the car.

I've had it largely elevated since. It's more comfortable to walk on barefoot, and my biggest problem seems to be in wrapping it too tightly / tying shoes too tightly. PT looked at it today when I went back for my shoulders and figured if it was bothering me in two weeks maybe I should see about it. Else, I have exercises and stretches to do already, and intend not to end up with a weak ankle like i have in the past.

This is all somewhat related to the decisions shirt - you wouldn't believe just how long i spent dithering about different ankle braces. Eventually went with something completely different that should arrive in the mail today at some point, because that way I didn't have to pay for something other than ground shipping. I may get something else to protect it for dance and acro, because my big annoyance is that I was just getting back into acro and had had a really good and challenging day of it, only to do what should have been an easy lift and mess up the landing.

In other news, I ran across something I think is really important, and despite other people's problems with them I am growing to like Upworthy. They highlighted a recent short vid by Heineken, in which people build something together, get to know each other a little bit, and then find out that they are diametrically opposed on a particular issue, by seeing each other discuss it on video before they met. Each set decide that yes, they're willing to continue discussing this over a beer. Upworthy adds a couple links about research re changing minds with in person interaction (the article is also interesting in terms of how ad campaigns neeed to work.)

Anyway, article about Heineken's ad, and the ad embedded.

If you're not registered to vote, or know people who aren't, or simply wish to spam your social media with this handy link to register:

You have to be registered by the 22nd May to vote in the election on the 8th June.

A lot of people, especially young people, seem to be registering. This is a good thing.

'There’s a British TV show called “Fleabag.” Aphra is a bit like “Fleabag,” but in the Star Wars Universe. “Fleabag” is about this woman in her 20s who is just this moral monster. The stuff she does is utterly unforgivable, but also very funny to watch.' -- Kieron Gillen

"My description of what Victor would look like without his scars or his costume is that it’s a look of a European man who’s got that look like he knows he’s the hottest shit in the universe. It kind of looks like Alex Maleev, as well, and kind of looks like Vincent Cassel sometimes. That’s what they come up with which was pretty funny. I like Vincent Cassel a lot. I think he’s a wonderful actor. I don’t want to insult the guy by saying that was my description." -- Brian Michael Bendis

The collected poems from my descent into madness year spent writing daily poems are now available from Lulu as the cheapest 330-page book they would let me make ($16.20). If that's too pricey, you can also get it from Lulu as a free download, or just click on the "a poem every day" tag to read them here. But if you did buy one, that'd be awesome.
