Oh Yea, Snap Into A Slim Jim!

I'm tired, so that means this post will be most unreadable do to the lack of brain power I am running on. I would just go to sleep, but i have to stay up to put clothes in the dryer, aahhh, when the heck are we going to get clothes like that coat that dried itself in Back To The Future III? My one reader maybe wondering what the heck is up with the title to this post, well i am glad you asked, what you didn't ask? well ask already so I can continue with this post, thank you. I have been reading Savage Dragon all week and for some dumb reason I keep thinking of Macho Man Randy Savage every time I see savage on the cover of the trade paper back. Any way moving on Savage Dragon is now being reprinted in very affordable archive versions the bad news is they are in black and white. I hate black and white, but i really want to catch up on my Savage Dragon so i will have to deal. I just finished volume one of the archive series and I can't wait for to send the second volume, but not enough to skip out on the free shipping that takes forever and a day, sorry Dragon I am really cheap. If you like butt kicking in your comics as much as I do then pick this up. There are all kinds of cool adversaries like big spiders and guys made out of leaches. For those new to Savage Dragon, he is a cop, well a super cop think Superman with a badge and a dragon fin, oh and green skin. He is the only cop with super human abilities fighting against a city over run with super powered freaks, needless to say he is a little out numbered, but a merry band of misfit vigilantes lend him a hand in cleaning up the streets. The washer stopped, time to toss the clothes in the dryer and hit the sheets, until next time and remember to support indy comics!

For The One Person That Reads This Crap, This Is For You

I am not dead, for the record I have been crazy busy, I am seeing someone, her names Amanda, and trying to finish fixing up a house. Lets start with the good stuff first, my relationship is going great, which means the house project is not going so well. I am really starting to like this girl and that scares me a little, because it makes me vulnerable. I hate to admit that I have a heart, because that means it can be broken. Not that I see it being broken in my near future, but if I have learned one thing in life, it’s that no matter how great a relationship seems to be going, you never know what the girl is really thinking. It’s not that guys don’t do the same, we try and act like we don’t care as much as we do, but lets face the facts guys, we suck at faking. Girls on the other hand can tell you they love you, then when you leave they call up their ex-boyfriend in Tulsa and talk about getting married. Samuel Butler (no relation) said, “It is better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all” apparently he enjoyed visiting the emerald city, 420 holla, because only a tool would want to have his heart ripped out, stepped on, run over, stuck in a blender, then stitched up and put back in his chest by some guy in an alley claming to be a Dr. Don’t take this post the wrong way I want the happy ending, not that happy ending, get your mind out of the gutter. Seriously I want the happily ever after ending that those sappy chick flicks all have, I just don’t want to have to sit through fifty nightmare on elm street endings to get there.

Tonight she met the parents, well my dad, she met my mom a while back. That is always one of those steps in the relationship that scares me the most, because what it they don’t like each other? Luckily that was not the case, but what do you do if it is? Do you listen to you parents or do you follow your heart?, that’s right I said heart not some other five letter word. Thank God that’s not the case because that reassures me that I probably made a good choice, which doesn’t happen often in my dating experiences, ok never since I have yet to say the words I do.

Currently Reading

I am currently reading The Goon, created by Eric Powell and published by Dark Horse Comics. This has to be the best thing I have read all year, maybe ever, It is funny and action packed. I have yet to finish an issue that I didn’t like. I picked it up because I got a good deal on the trade paperbacks, and I am so glad that I did. I really don’t know how to describe it, it has zombies and it seems to take place in the mid nineteen hundreds. I guess I would say it’s like the Godfather meets Dawn of The Dead meets UHF, that’s the best I can do as far as a description goes. If you are sick of the stereotypical comic book, please pick this up, and remember to support Indy comics.
