When I first saw Avatar: The Last Airbender (ATLA) on Nickelodeon, the first thing I thought was, “whoa…”

That was because the main character, Aang, had a skin colour that is similar to mine. Aang was not a stereotypical Asian. He doesn’t wear glasses or have tiny eyes. He has big eyes, like mine.

Everybody got so excited about the same sex parents on Disney Channel’s show Good Luck Charlie.

I guess people forgot that in 2006 on Nikelodeon’s show Drake and Josh, Josh kissed Drake. On the lip’s.

I think we should clap for Nikelodeon more.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE. Let’s kick it off with some lesbians.

I just got back from Newcon PDX over the weekend where I had a table in the Artist Alley. Overall, it was a lot of fun! Thanks to my buddies Mike, the chair, and Zach, the director of publicity and everyone else that made it happen. I was shocked by how big this little con had gotten. You guys are great and I look forward to the next year!
