It’s been a vibrant few weeks — incredibly beautiful and with deleterious nasal effects. I’ve not been able to breathe through my nose in weeks! I went out to CVS this afternoon to pick up one of my prescriptions. It was a quiet moment, I’d reached a good stopping point in the day’s major workContinue reading “The Colors of Spring”
Late last year, acclaimed comic book creator George Pérez announced that he has terminal prostate cancer. Since then, the outpouring of love for the artist of Crisis on Infinite Earths, The Infinity Gauntlet, New Teen Titans, Future Imperfect, JLA/Avengers, and too many other projects to name from the comics world has been both massive andContinue reading “Decorating the Bedroom”
WETA Workshop, the effects studio behind the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films, also produces a series of collectibles based on the films. This is the Bilbo Baggins Mini Epic Vinyl Figure, coming out in a few months. Ah, Bilbo Baggins, reviewing the Dwarves’ contract for his services… Wait. Bilbo Baggins?

I love listening to Howard Bryant on Weekend Edition Saturday, but damn, that fridge got thoroughly nuked.
We do not talk enough how Elmo brought in the Daleks to take care of his “Rocco Problem” permanently…
I saw a bird’s nest in a tree outside the office early this afternoon when I was outside on my lunch break. Maybe not a sign of spring — it’s too early for a bird to have built a nest — but it’s still a lovely thought, that spring will soon be here and lifeContinue reading “Signs of Spring”
Diamond Comic Distributors celebrated its 40th-anniversary today. And, even though the office doesn’t have many people working out of it right now due to COVID, the office was decorated for the day with signs. There was even a banner at the main entrance. I hadn’t been out the doors into the main lobby since MarchContinue reading “Anniversaries and Old Photographs”
