About this blog

Hi there!

My name’s Dee, and I’m an aspiring comic book writer, based in the UK. My current life-plan looks like this:

  • Phase 1: Write satirical fantasy comix with strong female leads.
  • Phase 2: ???
  • Phase 3: World peace, love, and understanding.

Me avatar 2014I have a long-standing interest in feminism, philosophy, and affirmative action… so I use this blog as a place to rave about the smart, funny, talented, kick-ass women who inspire me (and occasionally to rant about the films and TV shows that annoy or offend me).

Disclaimer: All of the opinions expressed here are entirely subjective, and partly fuelled by bitterness or fanboy-ish obsession. Sorry about that. :(

[Note: The banner above features doodles I drew of Haji and Tura Satana, as they appeared in Russ Meyer’s Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965)… in case anyone was curious…]

    Just letting you know I enjoy your blog. Although the first thing I thought of was Thalia Meninnger from “Dobie Gillis”.

      Bless you. I had to look “Dobie Gillis” up on Wikipedia, and now feel ashamed of myself for not knowing the name of the sitcom that featured “American television’s first beatnik”! Maynard G. Krebs is my new idol. :)

  2. Hi,
    I’m so glad I stumbled upon your blog. It’s like a candystore. I googled “Louise Bourgoin, feisty & feminism” and it led me here. These women featured throughout your blog are my idols too. Though I guess L.B. is not quite the epitome of the strong female role model that I have in mind, but Im going to watch her films tonight anyway. I badly miss some French talk.
    PS. my native tongue isnot English, as you might see.

    Dude, your blog is awesome! I just read the post about Scully and I’m totally hooked. I’m looking forward to plumbing the depths of your site and finding more gems!

    • deecrowseer says:

      Bless you! I’m not sure this blog has much “depth”, but I hope you find something worth reading buried under all my wordy rambling and unnecessary alliteration. Your blog is a real trip (a *good* trip, I mean)… and I love your attitude! :)

    Hi Dee! I really love your artwork and I was wondering about asking permission to use it. Do you have an email where I can contact you about this?

    • deecrowseer says:

      Hi, Nic! Thanks for your comment, and for following my blog.

      Everyone’s free to repost my doodles on their blog or pinterest or wherever, whenever they like… obviously a credit or back-link would be nice, but I’m always posting other peoples’ photos here without any credits, so I can’t really complain if someone does the same to me! Other than that, I don’t really see what use anyone could have for my artwork… but for what it’s worth, my e-mail is deecrowseer[AT]yahoo.co.uk. I also have a DeviantArt gallery, in case you’re curious.

    Hey Dee,

    So I have a little brother that decided to Google me and show me the results (reading this back I’m realising this sounds like a lie!) and I wanted to say a big thank you for your super complimentary posts about some of my work!

    Much love,
    Chandeep.

      I know it’s highly unlikely that this comment is kosher… but it still cheered me up, so thank you for the boost, whoever you are!
      And Chandeep deserves all the compliments I can pay her… she also deserves more starring roles, of course, but no one was buying the film/TV scripts I was pitching, so that’s out of my hands, sadly…

      • Chandeep Uppal says:

        Lol, well I’m not sure how I can prove it’s kosher but it 100% is so s super, big, massive thanks and best of luck with your writing! xxx

        • deecrowseer says:

          Well, theoretically the real Chandeep could have given this site a plug on her Twitter page as proof… then again, that account’s also unverified, so God only knows! The internet is a world-wide-web of fibbery and confusion…
          That said, thanks for the kind words, and good luck with your acting/parenting, if you are Chandeep… or your trolling/identity-thieving, if you aren’t…
