This morning I learned that former President George H.W. Bush died at the age of 94. He died just a few months after his wife Barbara passed away. At least you can say that he lived a long life.

I remember him as president and, before that, as vice president under Ronald Reagan. I have to admit that, as far as his presidency was concerned, he was a mixed bag. I still remember his infamous pledge where he said “Read my lips: No new taxes” only to have to reverse himself later. I also remember that awful recession that happened under his leadership and the economy was the main reason why the first Bush was a one-term president and why I voted for Bill Clinton.

Compared to his son George W. Bush and compared to what we have now (Donald Trump), he was relatively competent. There is only one thing that I appreciate about him and that was his efforts to pass the landmark Americans With Disabilities Act. Before that law was passed there was a time when a person with severe physical and/or mental disabilities lived a lower quality of life. If a person wanted to go out somewhere, he/she had to cross his/her fingers and hope that his/her destination could accommodate him/her. Public places were not required to accommodate people who needed—let’s say—wheelchairs to get around. There were some places who did so out of their own volition, such as Walt Disney World, but the vast majority of restaurants, movie theaters, and other public places just didn’t feel the need to accommodate those who weren’t perfect healthy.

If that wasn’t enough, employers and schools were also free to discriminate against someone on the basis of disabilities.

Thanks to the Americans With Disabilities Act, many public places had to actually accommodate those with disabilities. I especially appreciated what George H.W. Bush did years later when I had my own hip problems.

Ironically last month was the 10th anniversary of the day that I got my original hip replacement. I was born with a dislocated hip and the doctors managed to put me in a body cast so my hip joint could be put together. Despite that birth defect, I managed to learn how to walk. There was a scare when I was 12 and I fell on that same hip when I was roller skating. I suffered a sprained hip and the doctor who looked at my X-ray was amazed that I was walking normally. I managed to get over that sprained hip and I kept on walking right into adulthood.

As time went on I learned that once a person with a congenital hip dislocation reaches a certain age, that hip joint will lose cartilage, resulting in having a harder time walking. That’s what happened to me around 2006-2007 when people noticed that I was limping. Gradually I began to feel a clunking every time I walked. I was told by an orthopedic surgeon that, due to the loss of cartilage, I was feeling a bone on bone sensation. My walking got so bad that I had to use a walking cane. My only option was a hip replacement.

My then-husband and I scheduled the hip replacement for the week after Election Day so I would have the chance to vote for Barack Obama in 2008. We were thrilled when we found out that this country had elected the first African-American president. We both eventually became disappointed with the Obama Administration but I’ll never forget the sheer elation I felt when I hobbled to the polling place with my walking cane casting the ballot for Obama then finding out that he won.

Before the surgery I walked with a cane. The first few months after that hip replacement, I switched to a walker. Thanks to physical therapy, I worked my way back up to the cane before I eventually regained the ability to walk on my own without using anything else. It was through my reliance on both the cane and walker I became more aware first-hand of how much of a help George H.W. Bush was when he championed the Americans With Disabilities Act.

In 2011, over two years and three months after my original surgery, I fell twice within a week and I knocked my hip replacement out of alignment. Once again my walking began to deteriorate and I had to rely on a cane. As a result I had to undergo hip revision surgery. The only difference between hip replacement and hip revision is that I didn’t have to get a new joint with this second surgery. The surgeon was able to snap my joint back into place. After surgery I switched to using a walker. Once again I had to undergo physical therapy while I worked my way back to the cane then walking on my own without using anything.

The worst thing about the hip revision had nothing to do with the two falls or the surgery. The worst thing was when my husband abruptly left me just three months after my surgery and three days after Christmas. He never indicated that he was the slightest bit unhappy until the night he came home, announced that he was moving out, then bolted out the door before I could say anything. I couldn’t even run after him because I was still recovering from surgery and by the time I hobbled over to my walker, unfolded it, and wheeled it outside, he would’ve been long gone. Overnight he went from being a loving, caring husband to someone who was extremely nasty towards me. In the process he not only alienated me but he also alienated a lot of our longtime friends, especially when everyone learned that he left me for a friend with mental health issues so severe that she ended qualifying for SSI disability. I had a hard time dealing with this, especially since he was very devoted to nursing me back to health after both surgeries and he was still devoted to my well-being up until the night he literally ran away from home. But all that drama with my ex-husband is another long story that had nothing to do with why I appreciate what George H.W. Bush did.

Like I wrote earlier, he was a mixed bag as you can read at the following links:

Poppy Bush, opportunist president is dead

I have to agree with what these links had to say. Despite his serious flaws, I will always appreciate George H.W. Bush for what he did on behalf of disabled Americans.

After a few weeks working on this video, I finally managed to upload it last week on the observed Veterans Day holiday (which was on Monday this year because the actual holiday itself fell on a Sunday this year). And I’m only getting around to writing about it the day before Thanksgiving Day. In some ways it’s more appropriate to write about this video now than during Veterans Day.

Here’s some background. Way back in 2016 I did a series of tutorials on how to take a Barbie and customize her into a comic book superhero known as the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. As I wrote at the time, I was inspired to make this video tutorial series after reading the comic book and seeing letters from some fans clamoring for Squirrel Girl stuff to buy while other fans wrote about how they took matters into their own hands and made their own Squirrel Girl stuff. One guy went as far as take a female action figure and customize her into Squirrel Girl.

In the meantime Target got a shipment of the latest Barbie dolls known as Made to Move Barbie. These Barbies had more articulated joints than the average Barbie doll so they could make all kinds of poses. So I had an idea of using one of these Made to Move Barbies as a blank canvas to customize as the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.

After doing a lot of research on the web for various doll clothing patterns and doll customization tutorials, I filmed my four-part tutorial series, uploaded them on YouTube, and moved on to other things. I didn’t get too many hits for my tutorial series, which was a disappointment because I tried publicizing it on social media. But I didn’t let it get me down too much. I was satisfied with my tutorial series because I not only demonstrated my artistic and crafting ability but I also demonstrated my ability to teach others.

The following year (late 2017) I sold my customized Squirrel Girl doll at a craft show. I did it because I was looking for things to sell and there are times when I do sell old finished craft projects just so I can earn extra money while having more space in my house. I felt okay with releasing Squirrel Girl to a new home, especially since I have videos and photos to remember that doll by.

So a couple of months ago I attended the weekly animation meetup that’s held at the Greenbelt Makerspace where the person who leads the group showed previews from various animation shows that were debuting either on network television, cable television, various online streaming services, or some combination of the two or three. Among the various previews was a show called Marvel Rising and my mouth almost dropped when I saw that Squirrel Girl was among the characters on that series.

Before you know it, a line of Marvel Rising dolls were released and, yes, there is now an official Squirrel Girl action figure doll.

Ironically I decided to attempt a customized Squirrel Girl doll two years ago because there were no official Squirrel Girl dolls that were already in existence. I generally tend to shy away from doing my own customized versions of popular characters like Batman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman, or the two princesses from Frozen because it’s generally cheaper to purchased the mass-produced version from the store than to buy something handmade by me. I already have a big enough struggle with convincing people that my prices are higher than Walmart because 1) I live in a country with a high cost of living, 2) I make a lot of things by hand and I don’t have machines that can churn stuff out in large numbers in less than five minutes, and 3) it takes time to make things that are eye-catching and high quality without having people get on my case for having a handmade Superman action figure on sale for twice what the mass-produced version costs at a discount big box retailer.

So I did a video about the customized version of a lesser-known superhero with a smaller but dedicated fan following only to have Marvel decide to hyper her in a bigger way two years later. If I had a crystal ball that accurately predicted the future two years ago, I would have ditched the idea of doing that video tutorial series.

But then I came up with an idea for another video, one where I would compare the official Squirrel Girl doll with my original customized Squirrel Girl. I thought it would be a cool idea for a video for my YouTube channel.

So I went to Target and purchased the $19.99 Squirrel Girl doll. I shot footage of unboxing her, did a review of the doll, then compared the doll with my original customized doll from two years ago.

The big challenge was that I no longer have the other doll because I sold her. But I have another Barbie with articulated joints that I purchased just a few years before I did my Squirrel Girl series. I bought her at the time because I thought about making doll clothes to sell at craft shows, which I never acted on due mainly to the fact that I currently don’t have a sewing machine. But this Barbie came in handy because she has just as many articulated joints as the other one. (I was even able to identify which Barbie I had thanks to the Adventures in Barbie Collecting website.)

The biggest irony about finishing this video is that I finished it on the same day that the death of Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee was announced. The official Unbeatable Squirrel Girl’s Twitter feed made a couple of nice tribute tweets to Lee.

So here’s my video about my reaction to finding out that, at long last, there is an official Squirrel Girl action figure doll that was released two years after I did my original four-part customization tutorial. Enjoy!

It seems like this year the retailers are starting Black Friday earlier and earlier. For the past couple of weeks my various retailer apps (which I only have installed on my smartphone for the coupons) were going off announcing stuff like “Check out our Black Friday Preview sale!”

Black Friday Preview sale?!? I can’t believe that it’s actually a thing this year. I was at The Disney Store in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia a few days ago when I saw that this sign announcing that Black Friday sales were underway. (Granted, I went there on a Friday but it was on November 16—a full week before Black Friday itself.)

I have a few photos on my hard drive that I took not too long ago that will give you an idea of what to expect this holiday season. I found some cheap plastic ukuleles and a Jurassic World chocolate dinosaur at Five Below.

The Target in my area has just gotten a whole bunch of new stuff recently. Like Five Below, Target has a line of ukuleles but these ukuleles are made of wood (instead of plastic like Five Below) and they look like they are higher quality.

Target recently got a line of these dolls that are based on famous characters from older television shows and movies that are still beloved today. Here is Tootie Ramsey from the TV show The Facts of Life.

I used to watch Bill Maher’s Real Time With Bill Maher on HBO (back when I still had cable) and I enjoyed his documentary Religulous. He started losing me as a fan when he went off on Muslims by saying that they were all terrorists. It’s one thing to be an atheist with a low opinion of organized religion but to paint a whole group of people who practice a certain faith as terrorists is going a bit too far. Not all Muslims are terrorists just like not all Christians bomb abortion clinics.

I was also growing weary of him constantly having Ann Coulter as a guest on his show as his way of having diverse viewpoints. There’s nothing wrong with having conservatives on a liberal talk show like Real Time With Bill Maher but instead of having thoughtful dignified conservatives on his show he invites people like Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulis who say outrageous insulting stuff just for the sake of saying outrageous insulting stuff and ultimately have nothing to add to any kind of civilized discussion. When I ditched cable after seeing my bill jump from $80 per month to $200 I found that I didn’t miss watching Bill Maher’s show at all.

Now he’s really done it and the Internet is flaming him in a glorious way. A few days ago Stan Lee died at the ripe age of 95. To say that he was a major influence on the comic book industry is definitely an understatement. He took an industry that once catered mainly to children and expanded that base to adults by introducing superheroes with personal flaws and complex mature storylines that explored issues like racism, sexism, war, pollution, drug addiction, and alcoholism. There was an outpouring of emotion on social media where people came up with all kinds of tributes to the person who was nicknamed Stan the Man.

Bill Maher wrote a blog post that totally rained on that adulation. He basically said that comic books are for kids only and that he used to read them as a child until he gave them up as he got older. It’s this “comic books are for kids only” attitude of people like him that initially led me to read the one or two issues of Howard the Duck on the down low when I was around 13 years old and I ended up quitting reading that comic book because I was having a hard enough time with middle school kids harassing me without giving them another reason to make fun of me even more. The only reason why I even picked up comic books again as an adult was because my college boyfriend (whom I later married and divorced) collected them and he introduced me to The X-Men. We continued collecting comic books for the first few years of our marriage but we stopped when comic book prices rose to $1.50 per issue. (They now cost a whopping $3.99 per issue.) Nowadays the local public library in my town stocks graphic novel reprints of various comic book series so I’m able to borrow them and read them for free.

Bill Maher goes even further where he wrote what I think is the most stupidest thing he has said since his statement that all Muslims are terrorists.

I’m not saying we’ve necessarily gotten stupider. The average Joe is smarter in a lot of ways than he was in, say, the 1940s, when a big night out was a Three Stooges short and a Carmen Miranda musical. The problem is, we’re using our smarts on stupid stuff. I don’t think it’s a huge stretch to suggest that Donald Trump could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important.

It’s so obvious that he hasn’t picked up a comic book in years because he missed the occasional swipes at Donald Trump, such as this panel that was printed in the 2015 issue of Howard the Duck #1.

howardtheduck-irony

Bill Maher says that comic books are for kids only and slams adults who still read them yet he had no hesitation about appearing as himself in the movie Iron Man 3 which was based on—wait for it—a comic book that was co-created by Stan Lee.

I’m currently enjoying the online roasting he is getting in the comments section to his blog post, on Facebook, and on Twitter.

I don’t understand why Bill Maher is getting totally riled up about adults reading comic books. Adult comic book readers aren’t hurting anyone by reading them. What’s next? Is Bill Maher going to go after adults who collect toy cars? Or adults who collect dolls or toy robots or Breyer horses? Seriously, he needs to get a life. If he’s getting riled up over adults reading comic books then maybe it’s time for him to consider retiring from his Real Time With Bill Maher show. Jon Stewart left The Daily Show when he got tired of the day-to-day grind instead of hurling insults at adult comic book readers.

By the way, when I wrote my own blog post the other day about Stan Lee and how I once saw a vendor selling Stan Lee Cologne at the 2013 Baltimore Comic-Con, I forgot to mention another curious Stan Lee-related consumer product that I saw at a later date. Last year I was at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis shortly before Halloween and I saw that they were selling a line of Stan Lee action figures.

I didn’t buy one at the time because of tight finances. All I can say is that, thanks to his latest idiotic musings, Bill Maher probably won’t get a huge outpouring of emotion on social media when he passes—let alone anyone coming out with an action figure based on him.

UPDATE (November 24, 2018): Bill Maher could have shut up about adult comic book readers after writing that stupid blog post. But, no, a few days later he did an interview with Larry King where he doubled down on his contention that comic books are for kids only and adult comic book readers are beneath him. Even though he claimed in his blog post that he read comic books as a kid, here is what he had to say:

“Yeah, fine. I am agnostic on Stan Lee. I don’t read comic books. I didn’t even read them when I was a child. What I was saying is, a culture that thinks that comic books and comic book movies are profound meditations on the human condition is a dumb fucking culture. And for people to get mad at that just proves my point.”

So now he’s denying that he ever read comic books as a child after claiming the opposite in his original blog post. It just makes it more clear that he is criticizing something that he absolutely knows nothing about and absolutely refuses to educate himself about. That makes him little better than those right-wing evangelical Christian zealots who clamor for a ban on Harry Potter books at school even though they had never read a single page of that series. His interview with Larry King has resulted in more hostile comments being made in his original blog post. Meanwhile Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment company came out with a statement of its own in response to Bill Maher asinine statements. It ended with this sage advice:

Our shock at your comments makes us want to say “‘Nuff said, Bill,” but instead we will rely on another of Stan’s lessons to remind you that you have a powerful platform, so please remember: “With great power there must also come — great responsibility!”

Unfortunately I don’t see Bill Maher heeding that advice any time soon, if his recent interview with Larry King is any indication.

Today I got word that Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee has died at the ripe old age of 95. To say that he was a major influence on the comic book industry is definitely an understatement. Even his Wikipedia page can’t really impart how big of a name he was among comic books and how beloved he was by generations of comic book fans.

I never had the opportunity to meet the person who was frequently nicknamed Stan the Man but I saw his cologne on sale when I attended the 2013 Baltimore Comic-Con.

Baltimore Comic-Con, September 8, 2013

That’s right, I learned that there was such a thing as Stan Lee Cologne—the perfect cologne for anyone who ever had a desire to smell like him. (LOL!) I didn’t take a whiff of the cologne nor did I buy a bottle. I basically shot that photo and moved on. (There were tons of other things to see and do that day and I only had so much time and energy to check as much out as I could.) It was the only time I saw Stan Lee Cologne on sale anywhere in real life. I never really researched this product until now, where a quick Google search shows that one can buy Stan Lee Cologne online at Amazon. (Isn’t there anything that Amazon does not sell? LOL!) A review about this cologne on CNET has this hilarious headline: Stan Lee Cologne smells spicy, musky, superheroic.

Stan Lee may be gone but he definitely won’t be forgotten any time soon. Not if the legions of comic book fans around the world can help it.

American Flag

Today is the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice between the Allies of World War I and Germany in Compiègne, France. World War I officially ended on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the year. Today is officially Veterans Day but people are getting the holiday off from work tomorrow because Veterans Day falls on a Sunday this year.

I found out that the last surviving veteran of World War I, Florence Green, died in the United Kingdom at the age of 110 back in 2012.

I had a great-uncle on my mother’s side of the family who was one of the fabled American Doughboys who served in World War I. As my late grandmother used to tell it, her brother, Benjamin Karle (who was nicknamed “Buzz”), joined the military while he was still a teenager and went away to Europe towards the tail end of World War I. Buzz survived the war only to die of tuberculosis soon after he returned to the United States and made his way back to Baltimore, where the family lived. (My grandmother was one of nine children. She and her sister, Celeste, were the only ones who lived past the age of 25. All of their other siblings died at an early age from tuberculosis, including one sister who died at the age of two after tuberculosis settled into her bones.)

Needless to say, I never met my Great-Uncle Buzz but I used to visit his grave (along with the graves of my grandfather, great-grandparents, and other great-aunts and great-uncles who all died before I was born) at Loudon Park, which is located on Wilkens Avenue in Baltimore. My family used to visit that cemetery twice a year (once in the spring and once during the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas) where they would put flowers on the graves. Sometimes my late father would drive while other times my father would stay home and it was my mother who did the driving. My family was usually stoic when we visited the cemetery. My mother would put the flowers on the graves while my grandmother would pray for the souls of her family members. When I was a kid I used to sometimes walk on some of the low-lying headstones and I would end up getting scolded by an adult for doing so.

I still remember the time when we brought along my Great-Aunt Celeste, who was visiting from Ohio (where she moved after she got married and her new husband decided to move back to his home state where he was raised). Celeste hadn’t visited the cemetery in a number of years but when she saw the Karle family plot for the first time in a very long time she literally cried her eyes out while my grandmother tried to console her sister. I remember that was the only time that Celeste ever visited Loudon Park when I was growing up. She visited us a few other times but she never again asked to visit Loudon Park.

I haven’t been to Loudon Park in years but I found a photo of the Karle family plot online recently. It’s just as I remembered: A simple white rectangular marker on the ground that said “Karle” with no names or dates. My grandmother’s family were poor and they had so many family members who died of tuberculosis that they could only afford one plot with a simple marker. Basically the members who died were added to that plot as they passed away with the plot marked only by that white marker with the Karle family name on it.

President Donald Trump flew to France only to decide to skip yesterday’s planned visit to a ceremony that was held at a cemetery for the fallen American World War I soldiers because of rain. That’s right, President Trump, who’s also supposed to serve as the commander in chief of the armed forces, decided to stay in his hotel room because of rain. Never mind the fact that the leaders of other nations like Justin Trudeau, Emanuel Macron, and Angela Merkel didn’t let the rain stop them from attending commemoration ceremonies for the fallen of World War I.

The only legitimate reasons to cancel a scheduled visit would be if Trump had fallen seriously ill at the last minute or if he had suddenly dropped dead. Otherwise he should have been there—rain or no rain. He could’ve used an umbrella to help deal with the rain. For him to skip an important ceremony honoring the troops who served 100 years ago because of rain is unbecoming for a commander in chief. He has totally disrespected the memory of my Great-Uncle Benjamin “Buzz” Karle and the other men and women who served and even died in World War I. This is outrageous and, unfortunately, par for the course from the same man who has been recorded bragging about grabbing women by the pussy and has taken more golfing trips during his first two years in office than President Obama did during the entire eight years he served in the White House.

While you’re busy with your own lives, please take a moment to remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice over 100 years ago and don’t let the weather deter you from doing so like it did Donald Trump.
