Generally speaking, my father was not what I would call a brave man.
My father suffered from several phobias. He was afraid of heights, which dictated that after I turned 12, everything to be done on a ladder would be handled by me with him nervously looking on.
I’ll never forget when "we" painted the house when I was 17. "We" sure spent a lot of time by myself. Oh, and my favorite part was when it was time to paint an area of the house unreachable by the ladder, and my…
I just had one of the most confusing conversations... ever. I’d try to explain it, but I’m afraid my head would explode.
I hate when that happens.
You know, you are going along, thinking everything is normal, and someone walks up to you, and you think they are normal, and then, suddenly, you are trapped in a conversation you are sure is being spoken in Tolkein’s Elvish language or Sanskrit.
So, you find yourself kinda squinting at the other… Continue
Wow, a full week between blogs. My apologies. I did not intend for that to happen.
It has been a busy week, so this is just a random thought kinda day here at Earth G.
I recieved some software this past week that should help me build my website for The Crimson Scarab webcomic. It took me a while to find a good and reasonably priced program, and it took longer than that to accept that I wasn’t going to be able to take my limited knowledge of page building and do it myself. If… Continue
This past week, comic fans were treated to the first look at the actors in costume for the film adaptation of the Watchmen comic book series, coming out in 2009.
I have not been looking forward to this film.
Many of you familiar with me might find that unusual. I tend to look forward to comic films, and am quite often disappointed not merely because they aren't good, but because I've also built the film up in my head, knowing how good it could be.
Its a comic book convention in San Francisco, in case you were wondering.
No, I'm not there. Maybe I'd like to be, but no.
Generally speaking, Wondercon doesn't get a lot of huge announcements from Marvel and DC. Those are being saved for what I would think are considered the Big Three of the Cons - The New York Comic Con, The San Diego International Comic Con, and Wizard World Chicago. New York is in April, Chicago is in June, and…
I debated a lot about writing this. It is a very personal sort of matter, something that I've had to deal with for a long, long time.
And, it is a little bizarre.
And, possibly, a little creepy.
Now is the portion of the blog where I break into the joke, where I reveal my love of the song Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident) by John Michael Montgomery (despite my hatred of country music), or I talk about why I shower in the dark, or some other such…
Well, folks, I'm sick, and I'm not feeling up to posting today. I was going to, really... but the longer I sit in front of this computer screen, the more I fear I'll ruin the keyboard. So, sorry, and I'll type at you later.
Alright, this one is going to be short. I was at a Mark Lowry concert tonight (yes, it was really good), so I'm kinda doing this on the fly. In fact, this I'm doing this when I have a bunch of things I ought to be doing instead. Hmm... I bet I can think of five without trying too hard!
Five Things I Ought to be Doing Right Now Instead of this Blog!
Thing the First - Commissions!
I'm a lucky guy. A few people have asked me to do… Continue
