I mean, seriously. This nigh month-long absence is pretty unacceptable on my part. I'd like to thank Evie of Awesomed By Comics for giving me/the shop a generous shout-out in her last post, thus inspiring me to write again. Since I've kinda missed a lot of stuff, I think the best thing right now would be to do a quick kind of recap post, briefly running down a lot of the important things I've missed in the realm of things that matter to me. So, in no particular order:
Secret Invasion: Kind of anticlimactic, awesome last page.
Batman RIP: Is awesome.
Final Crisis: Is awesome to the maxx!
Grant Morrison: Should bear my intellectual children.
Brian Michael Bendis: Is still, in my opinion, a really good writer, and I loved the first post- SI New Avengers.
Mortal Kombat vs. DC: Shockingly very cool. Highly recommended.
Fox vs. DC (via WB): If Watchmen doesn't come out on time, I might cry.
The holidays: Busy and overrated.
Bang Camaro on Conan O'Brien: Incredible. I have now stood where Conan has stood in relative position to the Camaro drum set. This is probably the closest I will come to being a rock star. I love it.
The recession: So passe. Let's be hiply ironic and go spend money on frivolous things like comic books, okay?
The winter weather: Also passe. Cleaning off my car is so 9:00 AM this morning.
Blackened, Chicago's premiere Metallica tribute band: Is playing tonight at 10:00 PM at JJ Kelly's in Lansing. I am going to see them. My friend Jim is in this band and they are very good. If you like Metallica and/or talent, you should check them out.
Take Cover, Chicago's hottest new cover band: Will be storming your area soon! (probably not but hey, this is my own project and I'm psyched about it. Check out entertaining videos at myspace.com/takecovernow)
Blog entries that are phrased in such a way that they could have been taken from Rorshach's journal: Satisfying. Must investigate further. Hrm.
I think that covers about everything I would've talked about in the few months I haven't been reliably blogging. I promise I will be back with regular posts soon. YEAH!
