An interest in all and a specialty in a few is the key. On this blog my goal is to give a mixture of everything. Share anything and it will be recieved with a open mind. Come one come all, let's make a difference...

NASA Will Make Oxygen From CO2 On the Surface of Mars
NASA just announced what the Mars 2020 rover will carry to the Martian surface, and one of them sounds like pure sci-fi: MOXIE, a machine that sucks in carbon dioxide from the Martian atmosphere and pumps out pure oxygen for use in rocket fuel—or someday, for humans to breathe.
"We’re not so much using the oxygen, but seeing can we generate it, what’s the production rate, what’s the efficiency. Those are the general kinds of things we’re looking at with this in-situ device. If you can make propellant for a craft’s ascent stage to get off Mars, that really changes the mission design. Or if you can cache and store oxygen before a crew arrives, and have a habitable environment when we get there."

That’s great!! We are really getting places in our exploration of space. Also it’s just nice to hear something productive and good in the news in stead of the usual horrible destructiveness of the world….

Kicking off the 2014 Virtual ComicCon interviews is the pen behind Princeless, Jeremy Whitley. 
Jeremy if you don’t know, is the creator who brought us not-so-fair Princess Adrienne Ashe, the Princess who decides she’s done with this tower bs and proceeds to save herself. She teams up with her guard dragon Sparky, and a armor-smith Bedelia. 
Now, On with the interview:
OS: Should chocolate chip cookies be chewy or crispy?
Jeremy: Yes.  As long as they are served hot and with melty chips and a glass of milk (or for the lactose intolerant your beverage of choice)
OS: How do you respond to complaints that entertainment is becoming to “politically correct” and that under-represented persons just want to make everything about them? (Assume the person complaining isn’t trolling.)
Jeremy: I think people using the term “politically correct” should return to the 90’s immediately and give that phrase back to whatever sitcom they found it in.  I think entertainment is just becoming “correct” in that the people with the power and privilege are beginning to learn that there is a place and an audience for good writing and good characters.  The thing is that for decades there was just the same slop and people had to put up with it.  Now there is a diversity of entertainment and people are free to choose and support what they like.
As for under represented people “making it about them”: I think it’s about damn time.  White men have been making it about ourselves for a very long time and if we’re not going to make it about them they gotta do it for themselves.
OS: What piece of entertainment do you believe that every person should experience?
Jeremy: G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona’s “Ms. Marvel”
OS: Would you like to talk about any awesome projects you have coming up?
Jeremy: Yes.
The third volume of Princeless, titled “The Pirate Princess” is set to debut in January of 2015 with a special preview running in the ComicFest book from Action Lab in October.
The kickstarter for Illegal by myself and Heather Nunnelly will be starting the week after Comicon!  We have been working really hard to put together a great campaign and an even better comic.  I think people will really enjoy what we have in store!
Also, “Snow” by myself and Jessi Sheron should have a preview issue ready in time for SPX so people who want to come by and visit might be able to get a first look at our modern day fantasty/horror book.  My goal is to do something like Labyrinth but make it genuinely terrifying.
OS: Jet boots or a fully autonomous robotic pastry chef?
Jeremy: Jet boots.  With jet boots I can steal all the pastry I need!

Princeless is available at Action Lab Comics, Comixology, and your Friendly Local Comic Shop.

This is just about the best goddamn thing I have ever seen.

Thanks!

… I’m a little ashamed I didn’t make the labyrinth connection sooner as it’s my favorite movie ever

It’s excusable.

YES! finally a kickass black princess and not the predominately racist princess and the frog disney movie

Keep fighting!

This is being an american, fighting for what you believe in, and making connections with people no matter their backgrounds

What did you do last night? Careful — if you didn’t get enough sleep, your brain could be lying to you.
