Just Total Randomness…

You know, when you have a weekend like the one I did just prior its just flat out impossible to pen anything of significance. That, of course, assumes that I have ever written items of significance… However, that doesn’t mean that I can’t drop some random observations that might help you, the fine GeekintheCity reader from making the same mistakes as I. Hell, if George Carlin can publish entire books of random observations, I can waste a byte or two on it. (Yes, I just compared myself to George Carlin, deal with it)…

When listening to music at work…


Try not to belt out “The Invisible Guest” at the top of your lugs; it just causes your white-bread co-workers to look at you with wearied eyes. Especially when you hit that falsetto note…

Speaking of music, a note to my fellow iPod users… Isn’t it great that the little spinner thingy on the iPod is sensitive enough to sense your fingers through your shirt? Yea, me too! However, when keeping your iPod in your breast pocket, don’t adjust the volume… I know it’s convenient and all, but it looks like your tweaking your nipples… Which is fine, I guess, but it makes for an awkward break time when the big burly construction crew dude winks and licks his lips at you…

It doesn’t matter if you got the wrong weekend… The likelihood that one of the Geek crew is going to be at the Rose and Thistle is strong, stop on by… Someone will be there, just drop a famous movie line and like so many lemurs, one of us will pop our head over the oversized booths.

This reminds me… If you are some wanna’ be comic book creator and you consider yourself too good to discuss Superman (which you started), you are neither. In fact, odds are that you are, in fact, a colossal tool who will never make it. Comics are a dirty and ugly business and we all need to stick together… Point your barbs and insults where they matter… John Byrne.

Finally, on the topic of (big shock) comics… Does anyone else notice how poorly the Spiderman films hold up on repeat viewing? Look, I like the films, Raimi really knocked them out of the park. However, each time I watch either Spiderman flick, I find myself more and more bored with them. Unlike Batman Begins, which I still find to be baddass… Except for that behind the scenes section of the DVD. Makes me cringe to see Jim Lee and Dan Didio (especially Didio) brag about the pending awesomeness of All Star Batman and Robin…

“I’m the God damn Batman”!

Ugh…

Back soon with real commentary and reviews. Thanks for reading!
