Um. Clint makes Steve and Bucky read Harry Potter. The Avengers all have very, very strong opinions about which house they get sorted into. Bucky thinks he's a Slytherin, but Steve says he's a Hufflepuff through and through.

"This isn’t a legitimate classification system," said Steve angrily, throwing the book onto the couch next to Clint. "This is bullshit. They’re children, for cripe’s sake.”

Clint’s eyebrows rose to comical levels.

"You can’t just isolate different children or—or— or try to predetermine their characters at age eleven," Steve said, thoroughly angry. "And you certainly can’t condemn an entire fourth of your school’s population to a villainy house, what the hell is that?”

He started to pace.

"As if people never change! As if there’s no moral or ethical growth after age eleven!

Bucky reached over Clint and picked up the book. Clint gave him a look and he shrugged.

"Hell, if it makes Steve this angry, I gotta check it out," he explained.

"This isn’t a basis for education!" Bucky shouted. "Where are the art classes, huh? Kids this age should have access to art classes."

"Exactly!" shouted Steve. "Maybe a little less institutionalized racism and a little more arts education, am I right?"

Clint buried his head in his hands.

Ducks got such a response, and I am overwhelmed, and heartened.  Thank you for your kind words.  I think more seriously about a larger work, after this.  I’ve read a lot about people’s experiences in Fort McMurray, articles and exposés, and what have you, but not too many matched the things I saw and felt, not many came from people who had been there for any length of time.  And it never feels like the time when I am up the task of doing the place justice, like my comics talent has not hit that point yet, but at the same time, I’ll eventually lose the details if I wait too long.  

I wondered what to follow that up with, since this blog is a random mix, and will go back to being that.  I figure a post about Stan Rogers might be the ticket.

If you’re unfamiliar, Stan Rogers was a Canadian folk musician.  What made him great, in my eyes, is the ability to get at the heart of a matter, evoke loss, convey great feeling, without being overly sentimental.  He could really paint a picture.  And though most of his best known work is heavily Maritimes, he could convince you he came from anywhere in Canada, depending on the song, because he wrote with a powerful understanding of place and identity.  

The album here is a greatest hits sort of thing, but I encourage you to look up more if you never have.  If I take storytelling cues from anywhere, I hope many of them come from Stan.

Crows are scaryThey
use tools
Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
Have huge brains for birds
like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT.  They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows.  Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag.  But the nice guys with masks they left alone.  THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight.  THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.(q) 

/Well A group of them isn’t called a ‘Murder’ for no reason you know. 

Pfft “scary” more like hella awesomeCrows are the shit man, i love them

I’ve always loved crows. So cute.

Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four
Part Five
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008.  It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there.  It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them.  A larger work gets talked about from time to time.  It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories.  Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans.  Thank you for taking the time to read it.
