Comic Book That You Should Be Reading Pt 2

In my previous post on comic books that you should be reading I described a book called Ex Machina. Brilliant book.
This time I would like to talk to you about the book Y: The Last Man
Interestingly enough this one is written by the same person who writes Ex Machina. Brian K Vaughan. Excellent writer.
The premise behind "Y" is that at one point something happens to every male on the planet. They all die. Humans, animals, etc. They all die at the same moment in practically the same way. The only males left are the main character Yorick Brown and his pet male monkey named Ampersand. You do not know what happened to the males or why Yorick was saved.
the book follows his exploits when he is on the run and the race to find out why he was spared and how to repopulate the planet.
And despite what you may be thinking, no he does not get to sleep with every female in sight. It's not the ultimate male fantasy here.
Some females even want to kill him because he represents what they hated most about the planet before the plague hit. Mainly patriarchal dominance.
If you are interested in this book, and take it from me you should be, then you can buy it in trade paperback format. This format is basically when you take about 5-6 issues worth of material and put it into a single book. No ads and usually a complete arc. Great way to read this title.
It's how I even read this title. There are currently 6 trades out there of Y. Get the first one today.
I am out.

Politics As Usual?

Let me begin by stating that I have never liked the current administration. They are too divisive. Too quick to pul out the big guns. Too "cronyistic". Too partisan. Too "right wing".

Now I can continue on to the intent of this post.
Aren't people catching on yet?

2000 + dead in Iraq. Even though the mission was accomplished.
Tom DeLay being investigated.
Bill Frist being investigated.
Scooter Libby indicted on charges of lying and obstruction of justice.
Harriet Miers being forced to withdraw because she wasn't "conservative" enough.
Another white male being nominated to fill the spot of Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court.
Oil companies making billions of dollars of profit in a quarter.
The lack of a response to the victims of Katrina in New Orleans and other areas.
The spiraling deficit.
Continuing to divide the country.
Bringing religion into politics.
Banning stem cell research.
Lying to the American public.
Spiraling costs of wars in foreign countries.

I could continue to go on.
But why should I?
Draw your own conclusions America. Let me know what they are.

Tell Me Again Why I Should Care

I heard the grim news in passing today. From many sources. It's everywhere. You cannot avoid it. Even if you wanted to.
The death toll has surpassed 2,000 for Americans in Iraq.
I say this. Why have they died?
Do not patronize me and tell me it is so that Iraq can have a constitution.
Because, frankly, I don't care. I could care less if they ruled themselves by constitution, Torah, or "paper rock scissors". I just don't care.
And also do not presume to tell me this is so we can win the war on terror. There is no "war on terror". If there was really a war of that kind, they would be outlawing religion right now. But they are not, and the war on terror is their excuse to make their pockets deep with money.
For one thing, calling something a war means that there is a way to achieve victory. There is no way to "win" the so called war on terror. To win you have to "beat" the other side and have them see that your way is the right way.
The other side in this war on terror will never concede. They will never see any other way than their way.
The only way to win this "war" is to commit genocide. Leave absolutely no remnant alive.
And with genocide, there is no winner. There are only losers.
So, to continue to call this a war is wrong. Let's call it what it is.
It is a conflict of differing opinions.
The other side believes that their "god" gives them absolute authority to kill others who do not believe their ways.
"Our" side believes that their "god" gives them absolute authority to kill others who do not believe their ways.
Well, when I say it like that it makes them sound similar. The difference comes when I mention who the "god" is of each side.
Allah vs Money (God for the sake of the Christians)
Allah vs infidels.
Money vs terrorists.
Call it what you will. I will simply call it a waste of 2,000 soldiers lives.
As I said earlier, I do not care about Iraq. I care about America.
If we really cared about America we would be spending the 80 billion dollars every so often on security measures over here. Not over there.
Local money for local folks.
That is all for now.
Let me know what you think Earth.

Comic Book That You Should Be Reading

So, I was sitting here thinking about what I should write about. Then it occured to me. I should try and push the comic book to more of an audience.
I thought of a brilliant one. It is not even really a super hero book. Although the main character at one time was a super hero. But now, he's the mayor of New York. You know, you grow.
The title is Ex Machina. It is written by Brian K Vaughn. It is drawn by Tony Harris. It is published by Wildstorm Signature, which is an imprint of DC Comics.
This is a must read for anyone who likes smart dialogue and witty conversations.
I believe that there are two trades out now for this series. Trades are what are referred to as a collection of individual issues. Such as, the first trade collects the first like 5 issues of the series.
This series is flaming hot. It has people talking. It is getting noticed by major news publications.

In the first issue we are introduced to Mitchell Hundred. We see some flashbacks to his childhood, the accident that gave him some extra normal powers, his deciding to run for mayor and a final page of issue 1 that had many people crying and speechless. Trust me, if you cannot read the first issue of Ex Machina and not be moved, then you are a different breed of person.

The series is on issue 15 now, so it is not that far along. It is easy to catch back up with. Or if you find yourself interested and you do not want to visit your local comic book shop then you can just order the trades form Amazon or wherever when they become available.

Check it out. I would not lie to you.

Series Of Things That Are Pissing Me Off Pt 2

Here is another in a long list of things that I do not like.
This time I am going to talk about the political process. Specifically, campaign finance.
I agree with the intent of the McCain-Feingold Finance Law. I do not think that it goes far enough.
I think that you ought to eliminate all money from the process. People should receive free air time to air why they should be elected. No negative ads.
I just get sick and tired of hearing these people bitch and moan about their theory that "money = free speech". How much bulls**t do they think we can take? Do they honestly think that we are that stupid?
In essence, what they are trying to tell us is that your opinion only matters if you have money. So, my opinion matters more than some homeless person, but WAY less than an affluent person.
Mind you, at this point, my opinion is only very slightly higher than a homeless person.
I guarantee you anything, that if money were taken out of the equation, 95% of senators and congresspersons would quit their jobs. They are hypocrites.
Need I point out anything more than the problems that Bill Frist and Tom DeLay are in right now? Whether or not you like them, you have to agree that if money were not part of the picture, then there would be no problem. But instead, these people come to your house, poop on your floor, and tell you that the other side is out to get them.
Well, you know what? I do not give much of a damn about the other side either. Fix your own problems. Do not ever come to me and try to tell me that everything you are involved in is the product of some "activist judge" or "activist lawyer". Shut the hell up.
But getting back to the money issue. I know there are people who are pessimistic and say that money will never be taken out. I try to look at the possibility of money not being an issue.
Again, I want to vote FOR someone.
Maybe one of these days I might get around to actually running for a position. Who knows? At least then I could vote FOR someone. And I could do it without taking money or bribes from anyone. What a noble concept.

The Whole Voting and Candidate Process

The other day, I came to a conclusion with myself. I shared this observation with a coworker.

I told him that I wish there were actually people that I could vote for. I tend to vote Democratic most of the time. I have just been really disgusted by the people to vote for on both sides. (I am speaking more for the national races here). George W Bush has done nothing to endear himself to me. I very much dislike the way he does things. But that is for another post some other time.
I did not even care much for John Kerry. He was not the right person for the job. I do not want someone who has been gunning for the presidency since birth, ala Al Gore.
Politics are just so disgusting on a national level. They are even dirty on a state level. But, why is it that when I look at things going on in the government, I just get depressed? I should not be getting that way. I should be inspired.
I am just tired of voting against someone. I want desperately to vote FOR someone. Anyone.
Well, anyone within reason of course. I will not vote for Mickey Mouse. Ever.
I just want to vote for someone who should be in a leadership position. I am tired of voting for someone just because my union tells me to.
By the way, I do not follow their suggestions all the time. I am not cattle. Just had to clear the air on that one.
Please, will the real people please stand up so that we can vote for you?

Series of Things That Really Irk Me Pt 1

You know something that really irks me?
People who do not update their blogs often. Like someone who posts maybe once every few weeks?
What's that about? Do they not have anything else better to do? Do they think that we are held captive by their abscence?
I have had enough with these people. Who's with me in restoring some daggone dignity to these blog posts?

The "ayes" have it. Dignity shall return.

Tuesday, August 30, 2005


Hey there.
Just finished watching the debut episode of HBO's 12 part series about Rome.
It was really good.
I look forward to seeing how everything will play out.
Obviously, we know how some things turn out. But, it is kinda like watching Titantic. You know the boat sinks. People still watched it anyway.
If you are a fan of Roman history then I would recommend this to you. It does have a tendency to be a little graphic in places. But, this is Rome we are talking about.
So, go watch it and enjoy it.

Series Of Things That Are Pissing Me Off Pt 1

Hey there. I told you that I was gonna start writing some posts that do not deal with Anachronism. Well, here goes.
In honor of one of my all time favorite comedians, George Carlin, I am proud to start a running tally of a, "Series of Things That Are Pissing Me Off" posts

I will start today with the explosion that has occurred from the recent statements by Pat Robertson.

On Monday, Robertson said on the Christian Broadcast Network's The 700 Club, "We have the ability to take him (Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez) out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator, he continued. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.
You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it, Robertson said. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war ... and I don't think any oil shipments will stop.

I am willing to look past the fact that Patty is a blithering and complete idiot. What gets me is the fact that people listen to him and believe him. They believe him because, like the president now, he is hiding behind the veil of Christianity. People actually think he is a good person. What are these people frakking stupid? What level of self delusion do you have to achieve in order to look at Patty and think to yourself, "That's my kind of guy"?

Now, people who know me know my various stances, and are quite familiar with the one I am about to take. They know it quite well. I do have a propensity for stating it many times. Usually too many times. But dammit, it just gets me so frakking mad sometimes. The situations. Not my friends. My friends are awesome.

One of those stances involves religion. I do not like, nor do I agree with religion. It is at this point that I make one quick but very big distinction. I draw a HUGE line between faith and religion. I have and probably will always take issue with religion. I in no way come between a person and their faith. Faith is a very personal thing. Religion in and of itself is man made and inherently faulty and ill conceived. Yet, people are willing to kill you and blow themselves up in the name of religion. I say this because Patty is speaking on behalf of his religion. Christianity.
Well, let me say this. If he is Christian and Christianity is proud to have him, then frak Christianity. I want nothing to do with him or his "teachings".

I have faith. Do I believe that there is a higher "being" out there? Sure. Does this being have a name like Buddha or God? Allah? I doubt it. And you know what? I don't care. My higher level of thought does not need a name. All that is required is that I accept the fact that there is a higher level of consciousness.
I do not need to follow a strict way of acting. I do not need to appease the "Big Electron". I do not believe in a vain insecure god.

Well, I am starting to meander now. I will go ahead and end this post now.
I know my thoughts are all over the place now. I am tired. I have school tomorrow.

Final Entry about Anachronism at ConGlomeration

I realise that this will make about 3 posts in a row that are dealing with the same topic, but this should be the last one.
We had the tournament over the weekend. We ended up with about 6 players. We wouldve liked to have had more, but two of the players did not even have cards. Thankfully, we (meaning me) had extra cards to lend to people.
My friend and co-tournament organizer, won the whole tournament. I placed second.
It was great fun. We ended up with a match that pitted three warriors in one arena for one fight to determine who won second place.
In round four, I was certain that I was not going to win. I had Attila the Hun and the last remaining player had Leonidas. With Leo at like 9 life and Attila at like 3 it looked grim.
Then I managed to score two critical hits with my sword and a hit with a basic attack in one round to win. It was pretty fun and exhilerating.
I am looking forward to having more tourneys at another local place. This time free of charge.

Batman On Film

I just want to take this time to give the heads up to people who do not already know. I am talking about the website Batman On Film. It is a phenomenal site. He has the inside on all of the latest news and tidbits of information. His name is Jett. He lives in Texas.
He knows people who know things about movies. When he gets some inside info from certain people then you can bet that it is spot on. Give it a look. You will have to go tto the news page, which is the top link on the left hand side of the main page, in order to get the latest info.

Happy Fourth of July

Happy 4th of July to everyone out there who is celebrating the day.

It also appears that the only person who is reading this blog, is my wife. I am still asking for the people who read this and haven't signed up yet to do so. I mean I invite you into my house and you drink all the booze. You free loaders. And whatever else it is that Christian Bale aka Bruce Wayne, says to everyone at his birthday party to make them leave.
A friend and I saw the movie again yesterday. It was even better the second time. And if you need me to tell you the name of the movie, then you have not been paying attention. But anyway, we saw Batman Begins yesterday.
I did not realize the first time just how many times they use the word "fear" or "afraid" or the many other variations.
Till later,

Monday, June 27, 2005


Hello to whoever, if anyone, is reading this blog.
Since I do not really know who, again, if anyone, is reading this, I would like to ask the people who do read this to comment in this post just so I can see if people actually read this.
That's all. Nothing big, just post your name. Say, "Hi."
Donate some money if you know where I live.
That's all for now.
Hasta La Pasta,

AFI Top 100 Movie Quotes

So, I watched that show last night. I was intrigued by all of the different quotes. I even found myself hearing certain quotes and thinking, "Oh, that's where that quote came from." However, the show did leave me feeling a little dissapointed.
There were not that many quotes from non-mainstream movies. There are many many several quotes that are more famous than some of the ones that they listed.
Some of the quotes I have never heard nor do I recognize the significance of some of the quotes.
So, I have decided to take it upon myself to start a new list of famous quotes. Because I believe that good quotes were omitted. At this point I would normally ask for help in adding to my list of good quotes from other people reading this blog, but I do believe that I am the only one who is reading this anyway. But, I will go forth anyway.
I am going to try and use films that are not necessarily mainstream. Now, they can be. But, I am trying to add to the AFI's list. I will say the actor/actress and the name of the movie if at all possible. And, since I appear to be alone I will have to rely upon myself to correct any errors below.
Here we go:

"I'm you're huckleberry." - Val Kilmer - Tombstone

"My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." - Mandy Pitinkin - Princess Bride

"Luke, I am your father." David Prowse (James Earl Jones) - The Empire Strikes Back

"Never leave your wingman." - Anthony Edwards - Top Gun

"I'm Batman." - Michael Keaton, Christian Bale - Batman, Batman Begins

"I have a bad feeling about this." - Too many actors and actresses to name - Every Star Wars movie

"KAHN!!!!" - William Shatner - Star Trek II

"You die first. Your friends may get me in a rush but not before I make your head into a canoe." - Kurt Russell - Tombstone

"I may not be able to carry the ring Mr Frodo, but I can carry you!" - Sean Astin - The Lord Of The Rings - The Return Of The King

My D&D Campaign

So, I'm sitting here trying to figure out what to write for the new entry into my blog when it dawns upon me: my role playing campaign that I run.
It is pretty much my first time running adventures. Up until now I have always been a player.
So, the campaign is in a fantasy setting. It is what I know best.
The basic gist behind the campaign is the idea that at some point, the Greek gods of our history decide to up and leave this plane of existence and seek out a new land to rule. The Greeks have started to move on past them and they need new fresh followers.
They find this new world and fight the gods currently there. These gods would be the gods of the D&D world. The Greek gods win, because they are better, simply put.
During the god war the land is ravaged, torn asunder, etc. The world population has to start over, and since there are VERY FEW people left in this world now, the Greek gods have carte blanche with the rules and such.
So, the world grows and there are formed nations based upon the names of Greek city-states. Athens, Sparta, Mycanea, etc.
Furthermore, into this world is born an elven urban ranger, an elven wizard, and a human Acolyte of Hades.
They have had about 3 adventures so far. Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves.
I have to be careful what I write so as not to give away any information to the players.

Batman Begins

Well, I have seen the movie now. I must say that it is the best Batman movie ever made.
Chris Nolan and David Goyer get it. They know what makes Batman, well, Batman.
We are finally introduced to the origins of Bats. How he becomes the Bat after the death of his parents. Very good stuff.
I can kind of agree with some reviews in the fact that the fight scenes are kind of awkward watching. You never really see Bat fighting people. A lot of camera movement.
Yes, there are some kind of disturbing images, mainly the fallout from the Scarecrow's fear gas. The fear gas gets a big play in this movie. It was nice to see after having read the Batman comics for a few years now.
They set up a sequel with the ending of the movie. I cannot wait for the next one.
I will be going back to see this movie again. I still have friends that have not seen it.
I would encourage everyone who has not seen it to go see it and to see it again if you have already seen it. Go multiple times. It is that good.

It's Almost Here

Just wanted to say that I am at about T-minus 5 hours until I see Batman Begins on the IMAX screen. I cannot wait.
Before we go see the movie I do get the great benefit of eating Tumbleweed. I love the 'Weed.
All in all there are 15 people going to see the movie in my group.
I will review it after I have seen it.

OMAC Project

Well, I said that I would try and talk a little bit about each of the 4 mini-series that are spinning out of Identity Crisis and into Infinite Crisis. I am going to spill some beans about OMAC now.
Spinning from the events of DC COUNTDOWN and IDENTITY CRISIS, a crackerjack thriller by Greg Rucka (ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, WONDER WOMAN) comes to life in the brooding, gorgeous art of Jesus Saiz (MANHUNTER) in a 6-issue miniseries featuring covers by Jose LadrĂ³nn that can't be missed!
Every hero and villain in the DCU is under the gaze of an unbelievably powerful spy satellite. It's a technological marvel that answers to only one person — and he's got plans for it that are completely unknown to the superspy organization he controls: Checkmate!
In a world where men can fly and melt metal with their eyes, there's now an army created specifically as an answer to them: a One Man Army Corps. Batman and an old ally are about to learn the chilling truth behind the OMAC Project — but will they work with or against each other?
The above description is from the DC website. I would like to add some facts to it. One being the fact that the OMAC satellites are Batman's creation. HE built them after he figured out that the Justice League mindwiped him as he was trying to stop them from mindwiping Dr. Light.
Dr. Light is a villian that had just snuck onto the League's base and was assaulting the wife of a superhero. After this event the League decided to wipe his mind to protect themselves. Batman disagreed with this action and they wiped his mind to be able to wipe Light's mind.
This all sounds kind of confusing, however, OMAC is probably the best mini leading up to Infinite Crisis.
So, the spy satellites were created by Batman in order to keep track of all of the superheroes to prevent what happened to him from happening to others, good or bad. There is a line you do not cross as a hero. They, the League, crossed it and now they cannot be trusted.
From the beginning of the mini you find out that Batman is no longer in control of the satellites. Someone else is controlling them. This is a problem.
I have read 2 of the issues so far. I cannot wait to read the rest of them. I am curious as to if Bats will regain control and how this mini will tie into Infinite Crisis. I have faith in Greg Rucka to get me there.

Wednesday, June 15, 2005


I would like to take this time to talk about a new obsession of mine. It is called Anachronism. It is a card game from TriKing Games. It is utterly fantastic.
The basic set up is a gladitorial combat between two warriors from myth and history. The starter game comes with the warrior decks of Spartacus and Achilles. Booster packs are non-randomized. You know exactly what you are getting when you buy a pack. If you like history or playing a card game with friends that will take all of five minutes when you learn the rules, then I suggest that you give this game a try.
Series 1 of Anachronism includes 16 other warriors in addition to the starter game warriors. Series 2 will be out in June and includes 16 more warriors as well as another starter deck.
The four cultures included in the first series are the Japanese, Vikings, Romans, and Greeks.
The cultures include the following warriors:
Vikings: Canute the Great, Freydis Eiriksdottir, Grettir the Strong, and Harald Hardrada
Japanese: Nakano Takeko, Ninja, Oda Nobunaga, and Saito Musashibo Benkei
Romans: Amazonia, Julius Caesar, Marcus Claudius Marcellus, and Maximinus
Greeks: Alexander the Great, Herakles, Leonidas, and Milo of Croton
There is also a promo pack that features the Viking warrior Beowulf and the Japanese warrior Miyamoto Musashi.
There is a total of 5 rounds maximum in the game. The idea is to kill the opponent. You do this by damaging the other person with weapons and such.
I cannot recommend this game enough. You will have some fun and possibly learn some things along the way. All in all, not a bad proposition.

Infinite Crisis

Well, it appears that I am getting to the point that I may write in this thing every day. I must admit that when I started I had absolutely no idea what to write. I mean, I know of several things that I know and like, but why would I write them down?
I just want to put this out there. DC Comics is kicking some serious butt. Right now I am in the middle of reading the four mini-series that spin out of the events of Identity Crisis and Countdown to Infinite Crisis. (Day of Vengeance, OMAC Project, Rann/Thanagar War, Villians United). They are outstanding. They are all leading up to Infinite Crisis. Infinte Crisis is shaping up to be a major cataclysm in the DC universe.
Infinite Crisis will be a mini-series that will follow in the footsteps of Identity Crisis. In Identity Crisis, it is shown that the members of the Justice League mindwiped some villians as well as Batman. It is this mindwipe of Batman that has sent severe shockwave throughout the DC universe. So, in Infinite Crisis you will be able to see the repercussions of that decision. Because, Batman knows that they stole his mind from him. I anticipate that the Justice League will not be the same after this mini-series. I cannot wait to read this. October cannot get here fast enough because that is when the mini comes out. It is written by Geoff Johns.
I have never enjoyed reading comics more than I do now. The stories are engaging. The writers are fabulous.
DC has managed to accomplish something with me. They are making me want to read more and more of their titles. As long as DC keeps writers like Judd Winick, Geoff Johns, and Greg Rucka on board I will keep reading their books.
In a later post I will try and describe each mini and maybe even some of the other books that I read.

Monday, June 13, 2005

Comic Books That I Currently Read

Adventures of Superman
Batman: Gotham Knights
Birds of Prey
Day of Vengeance
Detective Comics
Ex Machina
Gotham Central
Green Arrow
Green Lantern
Legion of Super-Heroes
OMAC Project
Rann/Thanagar War
Teen Titans
Villians United
Wonder Woman

As you might be able to see, I am a big DC fan. I love the characters. The writers are very good. They have an upcoming event called Infinite Crisis which I will discuss more in a later post.
Batman is my favorite character, as you might have noticed from an earlier post.

Batman Begins

OK. I am almost counting down the minutes until the Batman movie. I have been waiting YEARS for a good Batman movie. It appears that it has finally arrived.
It seems that out of like every 10 reviews that come out for the movie, about 8 of them are positive to very positive.
Chris Nolan and David Goyer have evidently nailed it this time. Christian Bale looks and sounds like Batman/ Bruce Wayne. Add in Michael Cane, Gary Oldman, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Ken Watanabe, etc and you have the makings of a phenomenal cast.
I know that the movie comes out on Wednesday. I will, however, be waiting till Friday to see it. I would still rather go and see the movie with some friends. That way, afterwards, me and some of my buds can argue about how Bats is a better superhero that Superman.

Darth Tater

The other day, while I was shopping at our local Kroger, I came across a toy that I had heard about. It was the Darth Tater toy.
It is almost exactly like the original Mr. Potato Head, except that the toy comes with the helmet and face shield of our favorite Sith Lord, Darth Vader. Darth Tater also comes with two arms in the design of Vader's arms, as well as a red lightsaber in his right hand.
Needless, to say, it was a very good impulse purchase. If you are a Star Wars fan, this should be on your list.

The New Beginning

Well, it seems that I have just created a new blog space. Away from the overbearing confines of MSN.
I am going to use this space for many things for me. Info for a campaign that I run. Books I am interested in. Etc.
And, after I see Batman Begins, I will try and write a nice little review of the film.
Till later.
