Why Moiraine, You look different!

So. As some of you may know I am beyond disappointed in the depiction of Moiraine in the new Wheel of Time comic series. What I don’t understand is why the artist couldn’t base his work off of the Robert Jordan approved character sheets. Seriously. I’m not saying he had to draw just like Mike S. Miller (who is so awesome) but it is so obvious that this guy was just basing Moiraine off of…well who knows what.

Below are the New Spring versions of Moiraine, from three different artists. Different styles but you can tell they are all the same woman.

However, in Eye of the World girl is looking demented and not at all like the little hot Cairhienin old man Thom lusts after.

Moiraine?!

At least Rand looks decent.

I Can't Sew

Well, I tried to sew a little today and it was a failure. I don’t really know what I’m doing wrong (I think it’s a threading issue) so instead of breaking something I’m just going to have to wait and see if Maria will be willing to help the idiot.

I just want to sew some damn pillows! *shakes fist*

The Jackson Clan

Paris and Janet
Paris and Janet
The two sentence speech Paris Jackson gave at her father’s public memorial has been replayed–and analyzed–numberless times over the last twenty-four hours. For a large number of people seeing that little girl cry made them cry, but for me what warmed my heart was the embrace of the family afterward. Janet and Paris were hugging so tight and even Michael Jr. was seeking comfort from his youngest aunt. How anyone can look at that and not see the love, pure love between these family members is mind-boggling. Michael’s relationship with some of his siblings might be suspect but I doubt anyone can deny that he loved his baby sister and she him, and she’ll have his children’s best interests at heart.

I’m not much of a praying kind of gal, but I pray the courts leave those kids where they are right now. Watching that scene unfold I could only think of how horrible it would be to tear them away from all that love just after losing their father. If Debbie Rowe has any heart, even one iota of concern over these children she will let them be with their family. Her actions and even her own words speak against any real connection with them. She has made it rather easy to assume her primary motivation for seeking custody would be money.

I’ve heard comments that the kids need to be taken from the Jackson and put with a “normal white family” which of course just makes me sick. Chances are that normal white family would just hire a black nanny anyway, so I say cut out the middle man and just let them be! ;P

I hope Rowe keeps doing what she has done for the last decade and stay away from the Jacksons.
