This year has been one of big changes in things that i liked doing, mainly because i found that i didn't like doing them anymore (like when i retired from soccer, except without the injuries):

  • Back in February, i skipped going to DunDraCon for the first time.  I just didn't feel like going.  Not sure if i'll go back.
  • I decided not to do fantasy football this year and am not missing it.  Funny how ESPN's fantasy football coverage is now suddenly irritating.
  • I dropped all my comic book subscriptions after getting a notice from the shop that it had been eight months since my last visit.  Pretty clear i had stopped caring, there.
I've now entered my fourth month of unemployment.  I'm currently waiting to hear back from a couple of interviews, and have another one lined up on Wednesday.

One grandson just turned 1.  In a month, my other grandson and my granddaughter turn 3 and 7 8, respectively.  Soon, they'll all be old enough for me to tell them to get off my lawn.

I think that the Kindle is a complete failure.  How the hell do you start a fire with this thing?


If you ever wondered how Jeph Loeb got a job writing Batman, Warren Ellis found his submission letter.


During the "don't ask don't tell" repeal hoohah back in March, i learned a new historical tidbit: the US Civil War started because the Union wanted to station gay soldiers at Fort Sumter.


The Vatican is a rogue nation run by people who systematically protect pedophiles worldwide; it's time to invade and provoke regime change.


When i see the iPod silhouette ads, i amuse myself by thinking that they depict people who've just been shot.

Why does [livejournal.com profile] smccloud's map of Western Europe depict a Germany that encompasses Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, the eastern half of Austria, Hungary, and Slovenia (as well as Luxembourg and possibly Liechtenstein [thanks, [livejournal.com profile] eqe])?  UPDATE: Scott acknowledges and regrets the error.

Also, why does Google Chrome sound like Google is reinventing emacs as a Web browser, with Javascript instead of Lisp?

the morpheus-choronzon challenge for the helmet re-enacted by obama and clinton, respectively

If this doesn't make sense, i suggest reading Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman".  Please note that i found this and did not actually make it.

I never could relate to people who really got into the badness of certain forms of art, like Mystery Science Theater 3000 or the cult of Rocky Horror Picture Show.  But that changed once i watched a few episodes of the epically bad CSI: Miami.  The writing is sub-mediocre, even for Hollywood; the main characters not only have an extremely narrow set of behavior, but they are only allowed one or two facial expressions (David Caruso's two facial expressions are with and without sunglasses, if that counts as two); the non-recurring characters are acted with the care you'd see in your typical high school play.  And this lily is gilt with the choice of an H2 as the official crime lab vehicle.  I can't recommend this show to anyone; however, for those of you who revel in experiencing awful stuff, it might just be up your alley.


[livejournal.com profile] wacky_hijinx informed me some time ago that Kevin O'Neill would be signing yesterday, so i dropped by and picked up a copy of O'Neill's and Alan Moore's latest League of Extraordinary Gentlemen graphic novel, Black Dossier.  O'Neill was very kind and drew something on the first page for all comers.  He asked me what i wanted, and i said, "Surprise me," and i got a really nice Miss Murray.  I'm still reading BD; it is, well... it's mad.  It includes a set of 3-D glasses.  That's all i'll say for now.


Week 6: still not king employed.  Now that we're essentially in holiday season, it would be too optimistic to hope for a job before 2008.


[livejournal.com profile] palecur and i will be leaving tomorrow afternoon to go to Los Angeles to see Soda Stereo.  I believe that it's fair to say that they're the band i've been wanting to see play for the longest time.  We'll be back in time for Thanksgiving.

"Heroes" is a comic book title on the TV screen, and my rant is full of spoilers. )

Sure, i'm curious to see what happens next, but if "Heroes" were a comic book, i'd tell [livejournal.com profile] wacky_hijinx to drop my subscription.  How does a TV network pick up mediocrity like "Heroes" but not "Global Frequency"?  Oh, right, "TV network".

This ought to segue into my oft-promised rant about the dismal world of DC & Marvel, but i've had a migraine all day and i'm feeling a little drained now.
