Quote of the Moment
"CHRIS FARLEY IS THE UNCLE TOM OF FAT PEOPLE"
--"Aaron", title character of a short grahic work in a collection called "True Porn 2"...it's a collection of (for the most part) not-terribly-explicit but absolutely real-seeming and captivating short autobiographical "comics" of people's experiences with sex. Aaron is an assistant editor at a weekly porn magazine one of the author's worked at, and he says that while watching a video of himself and an ex-girlfriend doing sex-themed performance art. (Actually, a bit of Googling makes me think the piece is about this guy, now a porn director who's received some accolades.)

Anyway, the collection is pretty darn cool...it reminded me of why I'm sure to stop in at the comic store "Million Year Picnic" at Harvard Square every once in a while.
