I finally found Teemings, and am having a good time reading through it. Is this a valid place to ask questions/post comments on stories from it?
Sarah Has a Mommy and a Daddy: First, isn’t that pretty much the worse possible title for this story? Second, does anyone else see something wrong with this part: “…two daddies or two mommies or one mommy…”?
Watch Out for Falling Anvils: I’m a fan of both anvil firing and toons, and am convinced that anvil firing is the origin of that idea. The link would be even more concrete if there were playing cards in those early cartoons, but that would have made finding the history too easy. At the last anvil firing demo I saw they shot anvils to the 1812 Overture, using anvils where the cannons would be. (The anvils used were modified by Divis Pyrotechnics to be much safer, and fired by electric match. Still using black powder and playing cards, though.)
Somone Up There Likes Me: A great story. My favorite so far, but I’m only half through the third issue.
Last, how do they decide what poetry to run? I can do limericks and zinc haiku, but I have no idea how you’d decide that one poem is worth including but another isn’t.
