Bell Jars and Picture books
February 4, 2013 § 3 Comments
Last Friday, I had the interesting experience of tweeting a joke cover that travelled all over the internet and landed in several news websites! It was a rather silly comment on the Bell Jar 50th anniversary controversy which was picked up in The Guardian, The Independent, Media Bistro and Salon.com.
Now I can reveal the results of briefly becoming internet famous.
- I have €1,453 in internet money, which is redeemed at the bank in laughter.
- I’m invited to the LOLcats spring fling, but I’m not allowed bring a +1.
- I now know the secret self destruct code for the blogosphere. Turns out it is a combination of the nursery rhyme the captain told his daughter and fuzzily remembered Simpson references.
- Everyone likes 60s Air Stewardesses. EVERYONE!
In other exciting news, my Inis interview with the very talented illustrator and comics person, Sarah McIntyre is online here. It is well worth a read and has some fantastic pictures too. Her blog is jabberworks.livejournal.com, a good source of beards and glasses drawing, which is what all of us want our bespectacled, stubbly hearts.
