Bastards, Version 2.5, And A Trip Down Memory Lane
Thank you, my friend.
Talking of Creepy, I also want to make specific mention of his recent post about what he's dubbed 'The Polaroid Project', which is in actuality a set of amazingly bad and cheesy staged photos he, myself and Daveyyojimbo took around 10+ years ago, which at the time was good for nothing beyond killing our weekend evenings. If you have any curiousity about what your humble narrator looked like a decade ago, give it a look, and know that not a lot has changed, save for a few pounds for everyone involved, I've cut the long hair, and grown a goatee, whilst Creepy has shaved the head, tattooed everything, and Davey has grown a beard.
That aside, we're the same three members of a family of choice, and I'd do anything for them if they asked, including taking some more dumbass mock martial arts-themed photos.
A short handed day at work was successfully whiled away with several episodes of the Indie Spinner Rack Podcast, the most recent ones being a series about their coverage of the MoCCA Art Festival in NYC. I'm in a weird place with the whole comic book scene, as I don't follow anything at all, save for a few graphic novels here and there, yet I still have a few favorite writers that I kind of try to keep track of, just out of curiousity. The Indie Spinner Rack show is well-suited to someone of my age group, as the two guys doing it seem to have a similar frame of reference for their reading habits that I do, in that they have nostalgic memories about the same type of geeky shit. Note to self, there's been a lot of writing of late about 'nostalgic' things, I may have finally become as old as I've always felt inside....weird, that.
What you have here is the weird instance of me actually listening to a show each week, and possibly checking out a few of their links, with little to no intention of actually getting back into that hobby. I can't honestly say if that's a good thing or bad, but it's certianly something I never thought would happen considering my 'collector' nature. I suppose DVD's have replaced the buzz comic books used to give me, but it's still interesting to know what might be out there waiting for me, if I ever decided to get back into it.
Be seeing you.
