Lmao I think you're right X. I remember reading this issue and seeign that page and was genuinely upset for a second. Can't believe Starfire. She may be strong and all but she don't know who she's messing with. :| lol.
Ha, exactly! Starfire might be strong, but she AIN'T no Wonder Woman!
Lmao I read this issue but your caption was just gold. GOLD JERRY!!!
Why thank you, JT! See, even a blind squirrel can find a nut sometimes!
My pleasure sir, especially if a blind Wonder Woman can beat up the entire JLA. I always wondered where that blind squirrel phrase came from... who the hell would think of that?
"I always wondered where that blind squirrel phrase came from... who the hell would think of that?" HA!!! Ain't that the truth! Why would somebody come up with a saying like that? Were some old hillbillies from the 1840's watching a blind squirrel look for nuts or something?
Lol just the thought of Hillbilly's watching blind squirrels makes me laugh. "HEY BRANDINE!!! That magical box wit da movin pictures stopped workin again, lets go find us some blind squirrels to looks at!" Hm... whats another phrase that bothers me? "This is gonna hurt me more than it hurts you." Really? Well don't do it and we can both be happy!
Movin picture box... Classic!!! Hey, when you're a hillbilly, I guess you find entertainment where you can...
I;m sure I would... then again I'd spend my time thinking of something like a toilet so I wouldn't have to go outside at 3 am to the outhouse. Can you say spooky?
Pfft, there ain't NO WAY I'd be heading outside at three in the morning to take a leak in the outhouse... NOT gonna happen! With my luck, a frigging bear or something would be hanging out in there...
Lmao @ a bear. You open the door and he's just chilling there drinking hot chocolate with a newspaper just waiting for you. Lol so if you don't go to the outhouse what do you do, just head to the nearest window?
You actually read my mind! Sorry, but so long as my log cabin has a window, that's where I'll be heading come 3 in the morning!
Lol and if it's a number deuce and not an uno, still heading for the window? Lol
Damn straight! Where there's a will, there's a way, and like I said, there ain't NO way I'm running into no bear in the outhouse! :p
Lmao. That was hilarious. I love the fact that the bear is not only IN the outhouse, but just has the door closes waiting for you. That's some bad luck X. :P
Those damn bears are sneaky and smart! But let's forget about bears for a second, up where I'm living, I've got to worry about coyotes!!! Seriously! And being a city boy, hearing them make that creepy coyote noise at night can be pretty scary! Hell, my third month living up here, I found a frigging deer leg on my parents property! So yeah, no outhouse for me!
Wow! Coyotes? I've never even typed that word let alone seen one. So have you ever locked eyes with one before? And what the hell did you guys do with the deer leg?
Nope, luckily I've never actually seen one of the little buggers, I've only heard them whenever I stay at my parents place at night, and let me tell you, that yipping noise they make always makes my hair stand on end!Ahhh the deer leg... Well, first off, some background. I do any repairs/yardwork/landscaping my parents need done, and they own like 4 acres of land, which to city-folks like you and me, that's a LOT of land! What that means is that at least once a week during the summer, I'll head over and mow the lawn. They have NO neighbors around(which is another weird thing for a city boy like me)and their property is surrounded by woods and high weeds, stuff like that. OK, so there's the background. So I was on the riding lawnmower(which I'll admit, I do enjoy)cutting the grass on the outskirts of the property, when I spotted what looked like a really big stick sitting in the grass. I figured I'd move it so as to not mess up the blades of the mower, and when I approached it, I realized it was the bottom half of a deer leg! I mean you could see the bone and blood sticking out of the top and everything! So natually, being a city boy, I froze and started looking around like a moron! I went back to the house and got my little brother to show him('cause let's face it, you DON'T see THAT in NYC!)and then we began to debate over who should move it. Granted, this might not sound very manly, but I can tell you, I sure as hell didn't want to touch that damn thing! And I couldn't coax my little brother into touching it, so I figured, "What the hell, it's on the outskirts of the property, who'll even know it's here?" and I left it there! Of course every few days me and my bro would walk over and check it out(don't ask!)and one day, it was just gone! I guess whatever killed it decided to take the rest of it away finally... So yeah, there's my wild kingdom adventure!
I'm sure it does, i don't wanna see a Wolf, a coyote, a Big ass dog or anything that has sharp teeth and four legs, so I know exactly what you mean buddy.Okay, not to sound rude, but your parents must have some cash to have an awesome house like that and all that land. And I'm also jealous because I want a riding lawnmower. Lmao @ you and your bro not wanting to touch it, once again I don;t blame you. The fact that something came back for it just creeps me out. Dude I could listen to your stories all day.
My parents do have enough money to live comfortably(I hope!). How they got it is another one of my wacky stories though... My father was working as a field man(think outdoor janitor)at the high school I used to go to(and yes, that sucks as badly as you'd think!), when he fell through the ground into the old coal shute the school used to use to have coal delivered back in the day. So he fell like 10-15 feet and wound up in a coma for a week, ultimately losing his spleen and messing up one of his legs in the process(although I'm not sure how important a spleen is...). Bottom line is that he wound up suing the NYC Board of Ed, since he got hurt on their property, and after a few years in court, they wound up settling with him. As for the house/land, I don't think it was as expensive as you might think... Land up here in Binghamton isn't NEARLY as expensive as it was down in NYC, which is pretty much why my folks moved up here, and why I eventually followed them.Dude, I LOVE that lawnmower! It's SO much easier to do the lawn with one of those then it is to do it with one of those pushing lawnmower things... God did I used to HATE doing the lawn. Now I just put on my headphones and drive around the property. The only drawback is that it takes literally 3 hours+ to mow everything!
Damn dude, I don't even wanna imagine that fall, especially unexpectedly. And the loss of a spleen? I don't know what spleens do but I still don't wanna lose one... So ya dad worked at your HS, was that awkward? Did you guys go to school together or separately?Ah, I always wanted to ride one, but three hours of lawn mowing sounds like hell. No wonder you guys got a riding one. It takes about forty minutes or so to do my backyard and I hate that, so I couldn't imagine three hours.
"I don't know what spleens do but I still don't wanna lose one..." My thoughts exactly! I STILL don't know what a spleen does, but I figure I'm better off with one then without one!Ugh, it was AWFUL! We at least went in seperately, but it was still horrible knowing that him or one of his buddies could be sneaking up on me... I mean, HS is sucky enough, but imagine being under 24/7 surveillance!Yeah, when I tell ya there is NO way to do their lawn without a riding mower, I mean it! I mean, I like a good workout as much as the next guy, but if you tried to do that lawn with a walking mower, you'd either be at it for a few days, or you'd die of heatstroke!
So did he ever catch you doing anything or one of his buddies catch you and rat you out? I know it'd suck to be talking up some hot girl then your dad comes around the corner just staring at ya.So I can only imagine how much snow you have to shovel from their walkway and stuff. So do you shovel over at your place then head to their place? I picture them having a snowblower for some reason.
Nah, but that's what sucked about the whole situation... I never really had the chance to do anything! By the end of my freshman year, I was pretty much a paranoid mess, always looking over my shoulders to see which of his cronies was watching me... You don't know how horrible it was to look over at the door to one of my classes and see one of the cleaning crew staring in at me, or have my father sitting on the tractor while I'm outside at gym! That's probably why I failed so miserably the first time I went to college(right out of HS)... Having some freedom for the first time in 4 years led me to end up hanging around the college campus and hardly go to any of my classes at all! To be perfect honest with you, all of the stuff him and his idiot friends put me through in HS is probably one of many reasons we're not all that close today.Well, it's not THAT bad, snow-wise. Unless it's a really massive snowstorm, and we've only had one or two of those this year. My little brother still lives at home, so he usually gets stuck with a majority of the shoveling duties at my parents place. He keeps saying that once he graduates HS(he's a senior this year)he's leaving home and going away for school, which means since I'm the dutiful son, I'd probably head to their place and do the shoveling.
Damn dude, I mean, I don't even understand why he or his friends would watch over you like that. You'd think they would remember what it's like to be in highschool and how that's your first real taste of independence. So they were just like...spying on you and stuff for no reason whatsoever?I bet you're dreading that day. :P So would he be the first one to really leave home out of you two and your sister? Sorry if I'm asking too many questions lol I'm just genuinely interested.
Ha, well the fact that my father was a junior high school drop out should tell you that he didn't remember what HS was like! And yeah, since he knew so many of my teachers and my guidence counsellor was a buddy of his, he knew where all of my classes were and stuff, so for whatever reason, he'd constantly be checking up on me... Man did that used to piss me off to no end!Eh, not really. They have a MASSIVE driveway that gets plowed, so the only thing that really needs to get done is the walkway from the house to the cars, which really isn't that bad. I think I used to shovel more when we lived downstate.No, not really. I was away from my family for a few months after they first moved up here to Binghamton. After hearing about how much cheaper things were(plus the fact that I HATED my job), they finally convinced me to join the rest of the family and find a place up here.
Damn that sucks. It was probably more like being in Prison than Highschool eh?So with the exception of you and your dad, would you say that you and your family are super close? I know you said you and your sister are.
Ha, you know, that's actually a pretty good comparison...Oh yeah, me and my mom and both my siblings are really tight. But then, that's pretty much it for family for me... I don't have a very large family at all... No grandparents, no aunts or uncles, I have a few cousins, but I probably haven't seen them in like 15-20 years!
Hm, so you guys don't have a large family, like ya said. That's kinda shocking to me, I've got like 8 aunts and 4 uncles counting both my mom and dad's sides so I have like too many cousins to even remember.That's cool though that your family is pretty close, have you guys always been that way?
Yeah, most of the family I had growing up have passed on. All of my Aunts/Uncles, my last grandparent, and my great-grandmother... Hmm, yes and no. Growing up, me and my sister were pretty inseperable, since we're only a year and a half apart in age. Then I hit that age where you start to move away from family, so we weren't as close. Once I grew up though, we became pretty close again, like I said, since we're pretty close in age and went through much of the same crap growing up, she's pretty easy to talk to. As for my little brother, he's 10 years younger then me, so he's always kind of idolized me. Plus since my old man is the way he is, I'm almost like a father figure to him as well... I taught him how to ride a bike, throw a football, took him to little league, etc. Even today, when I head to my parents place I'll usually head outside with him to talk and toss a football around. As for my mother, she's always been the glue that keeps everybody together. Whenever I needed somebody to talk to growing up, she was it, since my father was out getting drunk or high...
I'm sorry to hear that dude. I'm sure it makes you wanna cherish the time you have with your remaining family members though.It sounds like you guys are pretty close. Your brother's lucky, I always wanted a big bro to do stuff like that with so I'm sure he loves that. My sister is ten years older than me so we never talked much, we played video games alot when I was a kid but when she hit around 18 or so we stopped hanging out as much but now that I'm 20 we always talk and stuff.
Well not to sound callous or anything, but I hardly even knew the family members of mine who died. I'd only see them like once a year tops, so it barely like they were family, you know?The relationship between your sister and you sounds SO much like the relationship between my sister and brother! They're currently in the "never really talking to each other" stage. Hopefully when my bro reaches your age they'll start talking to each other again. So I guess that means you only have the one sister?
Dude I know what you mean. It may sound mean but when you barely see some family it doesn't even really hit you when they pass. I had a cousin who I'd only see like a few times a year if that and he passed last year, I was sad to hear it but it didn't devastate me as mean as that may sound.Yeah I'm the youngest of two, also an uncle to her two daughters, 8 and 1 years old. But yeah, we barely had anything in common but once I got older we just started talking more gradually so hopefully that happens with your bro and sis. So do you have any nieces or nephews?
Nah, it doesn't sound mean to me. If you only passingly know somebody, it's hard to really be devestated over their death. In a way, they're only family in name, not actions. Now, this may sound REALLY weird, but the last time somebody's death really devestated me was when Owen Hart died... That struck me HARD! Owen WAS my favorite wrestler at the time of his death, and I remember being in a fog for like a whole week after he died. Owen's death hit me harder then my own father being in a coma for a week, so go figure out the way my brian works!Wow, so you're just surrounded by females(a sister and 2 nieces)! My father was an only child(so no uncles/aunts there), while my mother had 1 sister and 3 brothers. All of my mom's siblings are dead now, my family has a terrible history of alcohol abuse... I've never met one of my uncles, one died when I was like 4, so I can barely remember him, but he seemed nice(at least to a 4 yr old)and the last brother was pretty much the frigging devil, and my mother had NOTHING to do with his, so I don't even know if he had family. All I know is what I've heard through stories, and he seemed like some bad piece of work. When he died nobody from my immediate family went to the funeral. My Aunt died recently(within the past 5-6 years)and she was probably the only non-immediate family member I'd really spent much time with. Her kids were older then me(my niece and nephew), but my nieces kids were right around my age, so we'd hang out with them like once a month back when I was a kid. Then they moved a little bit farther away, then my family moved a bit away, but we'd still meet infrequently as kids. However, I haven't seen them now in over... jeez, probably close to 15 years or so. Besides them, that's pretty much it for my family tree! I'm guessing you've got more family in your life then that!
Dude I know what you mean. I friggin BAWLED like a baby when Eddie Guerrero passed. I found out at school and I was more like shocked but when I watched RAW that night and they showed the video package I couldn't help it because he was definitely one of my favorites and he always seemed like such a nice and happy guy after all the tragedies he faced. I think its because unlike some of those passing family members you get used to seeing guys like Eddie and Owen on TV every week so you grow a bond with them. Yeah I have a big family but I'm more closed off, I'd rather just be with my immediate family ya know. Just running down my family tree there's my sister, my two nieces, my mom and her three sisters and one brother. Combined they all have 7 kids that are older than me, who all have kids except one that are younger than me. Also I'm the oldest of everyone born in the last twenty years. And My dad has two sisters, three brothers. I also still have both of my Grandmothers.... I have a huge family dude lol.
"I think its because unlike some of those passing family members you get used to seeing guys like Eddie and Owen on TV every week so you grow a bond with them." EXACTLY! As weird as it may sound, that it exactly.I always wanted a large family, I figured it would be a lot of fun to have a bunch of people who were almost obligated to like you. But I'm not sure if I'd want to be from a large family like yours(no offense!)... It must be hard to be the oldest out of everybody born in the last 20 years, because you're too young for the older group, and too old for the younger group! Out of curiousity, at family gatherings, who do you find yourself gravitating towards, the older or younger group?
Dude.... you hit the nail on the head. And no offense taken, I know what you mean. And you're right. I'm too young for the older cousins because they still look at me like a kid even though I'm 20, and I'm too old for the younger cousins. Like the two closest to me in age are 17 and 15 and their both girls so yeah.I'm cool with one of my older cousins, but he's like 34. And I try not to follow him around so I'm usually bored and to myself. That's probably why I don't care for family gatherings and try to avoid them.
Huh, I can see why you try to avoid family gatherings... It must be terribly boring for you. I wouldn't want to go either!
It is, at the last one which I was gonna avoid and changed my mind at the last minute I literally wound up sitting around with my mp3 player for the whole.. 5 hours we were there. And I didn't drive so I had to wait to leave. It was hell dude...
Ouch! You need to get a PSP or something! :-) at least you could have had that to play with for those 5 LOOONG hours! So you couldn't drive then? Can you drive now? I SUCK as a driver! Or at least I did down in NYC... It's horrible trying to drive down there. My first year with my licence/car I was in THREE different accidents! Nowadays I don't really drive much, although I'm pretty sure I'm going to pick up a cheap vehicle this summer, because I'm getting tired of always having to bum rides from everyone else. Up here in Binghamton, the driving seems WAY easier then down in the city.
Lol yeah I need a PSP or a Nintendo DS (Super Mario bros.) And I had just got my license, I actually just got it in September but now there's something wrong with my car and I don't have a job at the moment so I can't get it fixed so it's like mega bad timing haha. I know what you mean about Bumming rides, I had to bum rides home from school last year every day and it was hell but I had pretty nice friends but I just hate having to ask people to do stuff like that.Wow you got in THREE accidents? We're they bad? And were they all your fault lol or other people's faults?
Yup, three accidents in the span of... I think 4 months! Embarrassing but true! And of course none of them were my fault! :p At least not in my mind... The first one I hit some lady who was running across the street to catch the bus. I had the right of way, and the street was clear in front of me and she darted into the street, so I hit the brakes a little bit away from her, and she stopped as well. I figured she'd REMAIN stopped, since I had the right of way, but nope, just as I started going again, WHAM, I smacked right into her since I guess she thought I was waiting for her to go... Next I was waiting at a red and some jackass tried to do a U-turn and hit me in the side... The last one was pretty bad, totalled my car and made me decide that I was probably better off taking the bus! I was going across a pretty busy intercection from a stop sign when some guy shot around a blind corner and just SMASHED me at a good 30-40 MPH! That destroyed my front axels on the passenger side and pretty much did it for me and driving for quite a while! The funny thing was that not that long after that accident, prob like 3 months later, they wound up putting up a street light there after some kids got killed in a wicked accident. So yeah, in my mind, I'm innocent from all of those accidents!
Damn. I love the fact that you and the woman played red light green light and she just got hit. Lol did you hit her hard enough to knock her down?But yeah those definitely would qualify as someone else's fault. I know your insurance rates had to skyrocket though right?
Dude, I hit her hard enough that she rolled up my hood and then off like in some kind of movie!!! It was horrible! Luckily she was all right and all, but that experience scared the hell out of me!"I know your insurance rates had to skyrocket though right?" That's the reason I decided to start taking the bus to get to and from work! Between gas, upkeep and insurance, then the rest of my bills, I was spending EVERY penny I was earning! Once I got rid of the car and started taking the bus, I actually had some spare money, which was a nice change of pace!
Lmao. Just your explanation had me ROLLING from laughter. I know it had to be scary as hell but sometimes you gotta just look back and laugh at that right?I don't blame you at all dude. No offense but maybe you shouldn't be driving :P Lol but nah really those all seemed like the other people's fault, but I'm sure you're more cautious than ever now.
Well I'm glad you find humor in my terror, JT. ;-) Seriously though, sometimes you have to look back at crazy stuff like that, shake your head and just laugh at it..."No offense but maybe you shouldn't be driving" You actually don't know how true that is... My family hadn't had a car since I was 7, and my mother STILL doesn't know how to drive. When I turned 19, I figured it was probably time to learn, so I went to a driving school and once a week I'd get a lesson. After like 8 lessons, my instructor decided to have me take the place of another student who was going to miss their road test, so I could use that experience for my next time, since we both expected me to fail. So, after only being behind the wheel 8 times in two months, I take the test and amazingly, I pass it(which I still hold over both of my siblings, who had WAY more experience in a car and both passed on their second try!)! After that, I picked up a cheap minivan looking thing, and my reign of terror on the roads began! I HONESTLY don't think I should have been driving that soon, but I had the license that said otherwise!
Lol I'm glad you understood what I meant and I didn't come off like an ass :PCheck you out, the quick learner who passed his lesson when he was expected to fail. Sounds like a movie. A movie about driving. And that, no offense, sounds boring :P Lol @ my reign of terror. You sound like me, I'm not confident in my driving abilities but I got a license so someone thinks I'm good enough...So did everyone in your household walk and take the bus/subway? Then again that's common in New York right?
I still think it would have been for the best if I had failed, just so I could have gotten those extra couple of lessons. "You sound like me, I'm not confident in my driving abilities" I think that's probably the way to be though... If you're too confident, that's when you start to get into trouble and stuff. Then again, it's not good to be over-cautious either... I found that out the hard way!Yep, everybody walked to their destinations except for me, I drove, and then after that proved to be an epic failure, I took the bus. Like you said, downstate that's the way it is. You'd either walk all the way to work/school, or you'd walk to the bus/subway. Especially in Manhattan! Only long distance travellers(like people from Jersey or Connecticut)would drive into Manhattan! Up here in Binghamton though, you really need a car, 'cause things are WAY more spread apart!
Good point, better to know too much than know too little.When you were over cautious is that how the accidents happened or is this another amazing story I gotta hear?Man I can't even imagine that. I'd hate to have to walk all over, but the subway seems like a cool idea, but if it really as crime filled as people say?
I'd say that my over-cautiousness prob caused that accident when I smacked into that woman... I should have kept going since I had the right of way, but once I saw her start across the street, my first instinct was to stop. If I had kept going, especially since she wound up stopping anyway, nothing would have happened. But what can ya do, I can't change the past... Unless I'm still Rip Hunter... Hmm...It's really not a matter of walking all over, the transit system in the 5 boroughs is pretty solid. I mean, there's a bus stop on like EVERY corner! And there are so many buses you could get a ride pretty much anywhere. As for the subway system, I never had any problems down there, but it's not like I was riding the train at like 1 in the morning either. Of course there's gonna be some crimes there, but I don't think it's too out of proportion to any other city.
Hmmm I'm shocked you even remembered that you were Rip Hunter. I see what ya mean though, I think second guessing yourself you're more likely to have problems.Ah got you, so what time do you guy's buses stop running? I'm not sure but I've heard ours stops at 3 and I've also heard we have 24 hour bus service so... yeah.
Yeah overconfidence and a lack of confidence can both be pretty bad.Well, the subways never stop running, they're def 24/7, 365. The buses also run 24/7, but there are way less during off peak hours. For example, the bus I used to catch for work every morning(the Q7)would arrive at the stop at 5:15-5:20 am(man did I HATE getting up early to catch that bus!). If you missed that bus, the next one would arrive at about 5:45. After 7 am, the buses would arrive like once every 10-15 minutes(unless they were running slow, which was often!)until like 8 at night, when the service would slow down again, and you'd be waiting 30-45 minutes between buses. But that was for the Q7. Other buses would run slower or faster depending on how many people would use 'em every morning. For example, the Q11(which went down to the biggest mall in Queens, as well as the subway station that would go straight into Manhattan)would run like 5-10 minutes between buses during peak hours. But that bus sucked, 'cause unless you got on it near the beginning of the run, you'd be stuck standing for most of you ride. So there ya go, a quick lesson on the NYC transit system! :-)
Ya gotta have JUST enough confidence, then talk in third person. Just ask The Rock, that works.Oh man, what time did you have to go to sleep to be up to catch a 5:15 bus?! Man I hated standing on the bus, especially when it's been a while and ya legs get numb from not moving then you feel like if you turn you'll just fall over on someone lol.
I'd actually love to start talking in the third person. I would too, except for the fact that that would probably be the thing that FINALLY gets me locked up in the nuthouse!When I was smart, I'd be in bed at 8 pm... However, being 18/19 at the time, that didn't happen very often! I'd spend the first couple of hours at work in a daze, wandering aimlessly around until I got my second wind.Luckily for me, I was usually among the first on the bus both going to and coming home from work, since my stop was right near the start/end of the route. The only time I'd ever really have to stand on the work bus was when I'd get out of work at 4/5 pm, because the first stop for that bus was Kennedy airport, and that was about the time a lot of airport workers would get off, so by the time the bus got to me(I think I was the third or forth stop), the bus would be PACKED already.
Lol The Rock does it, and Magneto does it from Time to time apparently. I'd love is Booster Gold started doing it, back when he was a jerk anyway.Lol sounds like me, I'm as you already know a Nightowl, as I type this I have to be up at 5:30 and it's already 1:37 so... yeah lol.I know that must've sucked, especially in the winters and being up that early while it's still dark and colder.
My favorite is Dr. Doom. He ALWAYS does it! Doom is like every other word out of that guys mouth!Exactly! I'm still pretty bad though, for example, it's 12:34 right now, and I've got to be out of the house tomorrow at 7:30(tomorrow is my early school day). After I'm done checking these comments, I'll go to a few sites, then I'll probably spend the next hour or so reading comics, so I'm still pretty bad!Yeah, the winter was the worst... I used to dress in like 4 or 5 layers of clothes, especially on those really cold and windy mornings. It was always the wind that would really piss me off too. I can take the cold with no problem, but cold AND windy, forget it!
Bow to DOOM!!! He will bring Doom upon your doomed heads because he's Dr. Doom, and You are DOOMED!!!!.....doom.Lol poor poor X, at least ya got that break coming up. Did ya Dragon Age come yet?Yeah, I'm warm blooded so I'm good but the wind chill is what really messes me up. I actually sleep with the fan on at night because I get too hot during winter, and the AC on during summer every night, I kid ya not.
If you read my post on the other blog, you already know the answer to that!I'm currently renting a basement apartment, so I actually have the opposite problem, it's ALWAYS cold, in the winter AND the summer! I'm so used to it now though, I can stroll around my place in a pair of shorts while everybody else is all bundled up!
I did, glad it came. So I saw ya like it and I'm proud of my recommendation. So how far have ya gotten so far?Lucky, I'd love that. So do you like it where ya are? I'd love to get an apartment, I still stay at home, but I'm enjoying not paying rent while I can. Lol
I think we should make that other post our official Dragon Age: Origins post, like that lod WW post is our official wrestling post. I only say that because I kind of answered that question there already!Yeah, I really like where I'm living now. But I just like living up here in Binghamton more then downstate I guess... That's a tough thing to actually type believe it or not... I grew up in The City and all, so many of my best(and worst for that matter)memories are from down there, and I'll always consider myself a New Yorker, but I think Binghamton suits my personality type a little better. By nature I'm a quiet sort of guy with a VERY small circle of people I'd consider friends, and getting to that point takes me a LONG time. Downstate everything is SO fast, while up here the pace is way slower, which suits me. Plus downstate I was working at a job I hated with every fiber of my being, while up here I'm going to school, and the Government is picking up the tab, how sweet is that?!? Speaking of school, I'm ONE semester away from getting my two year Liberal Arts degree! I'm taking a class in the Summer(which sucks, but helps in the long run)and then once that class is out of the way, I only have three more Fall classes to go for that diploma... Then I have to decide what to do... My advisor wants me(hell, he's practically begging me!)to transfer to another school with my goal being to become a college professor, which if I can get covered in grants and scholorships, I'm seriously considering. If not, then I may stay in the school I'm currently attending and get an Accounting degree. Or, depending on what kinds of jobs are available next Nov/Dec, when I'll have my LA diploma, I might just luck out and get a good, steady job somewhere. I guess only time will tell though. It is all pretty exciting though!
Lol that's fine with me dude, I didn't expect ya to answer me in that other post about it first. Coolio, from now on only Origins convo in that other post.Sweet, the Government is paying? How'd you hook that one up? And I'm like you, quiet by nature, only a few close friends. Kinda shocked at how quick we became friends but I'm cool with it because you're a cool dude.Well congrats in advance dude. Glad to hear you have so many choices too, whichever you choose just make sure you have fun doing it, that's the most important thing. As you already know, there's nothing like having a job you absolutely hate going to.
Yeah, my advisor told me about some kind of government grant or something, so as long as I stay in school, keep up a certain grade level and don't make more then a certain amount of money, the feds pay for everything! Pretty sweet, no? "Kinda shocked at how quick we became friends but I'm cool with it because you're a cool dude." I like how you compliment me one post after calling me old... ;-) Thanks and exactly, JT. The whole reason I'm in school again is because I know just what it's like to have a sucky job that you hate. If I can help it, I'm not going back to that again.
Man that'd pretty freaking awesome. So they pay for your school and apartment and food or just certain things?Lmao, I wasn't callin ya old, just saying you're very computer-illiterate. :P You're the one who said it takes ya forever to type lol. Besides if I compliment ya, you won't get mad and ban me from the site. LolI don't blame you at all dude. I've been looking for a job in my field because It's something I know I'd enjoy but pretty soon I'm gonna have to grab a job at CVS or somewhere and that's not somethinG I wanna have to do so I know what ya mean.
They pay for school and books, but most of the time they give me more then I need for tuition and stuff, which then goes towards those important necessities such as comics, and video games!Well actually, my typing has improved drastically in these past few months. I blame you. All of these responsesfrom you have really helped me become a MUCH better typist, so thank you kindly JT! Bah, if I banned you, who would I spend all this time talking comics, wrestling and video games with?Yeah, that would def suck... If you do have to take a dead end job like that though, my best advice is to save up as much of your money as you can, so after a while you'll have something to fall back on for when the job you really want opens up for ya. Hey, what's your field if you don't mind my asking?
That's pretty awesome. If they knew they were paying for comics and video games you know they'd be pissed. :PLol well thanks, I feel like I should be charging you now. :P Good point, it'd seem more like a chore in that case eh? So when I first popped up around your sites commenting on everything what were you thinking? LolThanks for the good advice man, definitely already had that planned. Oh and no problem dude, feel free to ask me whatever. I went to a Video production school so anything where I can film, edit, write scripts (preferably comedy) or anything is fine with me. I thought it would be easier since their opening a lot of Film studios in Michigan but I'm only a year removed from school so I'm still kind of a rookie and their looking for more experienced people.
That's pretty awesome. If they knew they were paying for comics and video games you know they'd be pissed. Shhhh...;-)I was pretty psyched! As I'm pretty sure you may have been able to piece together, I like to talk about comics and stuff. :-) I'd have a few other guys post like Kello, who does have the honor of being the first person to comment on my blogs, but Kello is pretty sporatic with his commenting. One week he may comment like 7-10 times, and then you won't see him again for 2 weeks. I had three other guys who used to post a lot, but one stopped blogging completely, one hasn't blogged for a month or so, and the other... Eh, he kind of gets on my nerves. At least now I've got you, Nagash, Marc and even Falisha who I can rely on for comments, with you always giving me the lion's share. The best thing about knowing I'll be getting comments from you is that I know I'll always have someone to talk comics with!Mmm, yeah that sucks when they're always looking for somebody with "experience"... I guess if I were you I'd do everything I could to get a job at one of those studios doing ANYTHING(even low-non paying), and then try to work upwards from there as you get to know people... Wait, they're opening film studios in Michigan?!? Wow!
Lol I won't tell as long as you post a blog talking about why MY blog is the best blog online :DAwww such kind words. Yeah man honestly I look forward to our comment convos everyday, I don't have a lot of friends to talk comics with because most are like mega busy or just more so readers or certain ones. Plus since we talk Wrestling and Video games that's just a bonus. I didn't know Kello was your first comment, that's awesome. And who's the one who annoys you, I promise I won't tell. And I guess that's you four as the legion? To be honest I've always been jealous and wanted to join the Legion since I found out about it lol, seriously.Yeah that's what I was thinking too, now that I got my license I can at least go on coffee runs and such. And yeah dude because there's some big movie tax where they save money so their filming a ton of movies out here and stuff.
So it's blackmail, is it... OK, I have a way of dealing with blackmailers. Now where the hell is that nasty bastard, morally ambiguous mage of mine?!?Hell, I can one-up you, I don't have any friends who still read comics to talk to! I've got my sister and that's it, so that's why I enjoy these talks! Yeah, we were the Legion, although I'm still not exactly sure how that happened... See, I started ending some of my posts with the Long Live The Legion battle cry because #1, I could never find a good way to end certain posts, so I just decided to shout something totally random and #2, because the Legion of Super-Heroes comic had JUST been cancelled, and I was loving that series big-time, so when I say Long Live The Legion, that's what I think about(that cancelled series), and THAT'S why I use it. Kello began calling the few readers he had on his blog at the time the Legion of Losers(which may not be a smart thing to call your readers, but anyway!), which in the beginning consisted of just me and him. Then two other guys who read my blog began to frequent his, and they became official members of the LOL. So far as I know, readers of Kello's blog are automatically members of the LOL, so who knows, you might already be a member!Yeah, if that's what you want to do, then the best thing you can do is keep showing them your face, so if something job-wise does come up, you'll be on their mind. Huh, I did not know about that movie tax. Cool. I'd guess that the business is prob really busy in the summer/spring, but quiet in the winter, because I'm sure you guys have cold, harsh and snowy winters, which is WAY different from California!
Oh no, not that morally ambiguous, nasty bastard of a Mage Nekon! I'm getting the hell outta here!!!!Lol I never thought about that, referring to your readers as losers, but hey, he's the leader. Ah well in that case I'll take my membership anyway I can get it :PDefinitely dude, so come summer hopefully I can find something. I had a gig last summer as a camera man for a tv show about the Movie industry, paid internship and that was pretty fun, made 75 bucks for two hours of filming and I used their camera.
Hmph. I knew Nekon would take care of that problem. That's what a morally ambiguous, nasty bastard of a mage is for!Exactly! See, I'd go more with flattery, but to each his own... If he wants to call his readers losers, so be it!That sounded like a pretty sweet gig, plus it gives you some experience in the inner workings of the film industry, which had to be a good thing.
You just wait Nekon, I'm gonna call My superman like hero, Kav-El to own you. (Story behind that name is when I was wrestling my work name was Kevin Kavalier, and I watch alot of Smallville and Jor-El always calls Clark by the Kal-El name so I started calling myself Kav-El, lol.)Lol I don't know how flatter X-Maniac is :P I'm gonna call my readers Red Hoods...or something I guess. Then take them out to eat at Red Robin... Yummmm.Yeah it was cool but the production team that hired us was always living in the future so stuff didn't materialize because they never concentrated on what was, and that annoyed me.
Kav-El? I like it. I could EASILY see a Superman character use that name.Ha, well, there are at least two definitions of maniac that I know of, one being a total lunatic, and the other being an overly enthusiastic person. Let's say I'm going with the second definition! Now you saying you're going to be eating Red Robin is just disturbing on MANY levels...Huh, that seems like a really good way to not get anything done... I mean if you're always thinking about the future, how are you gonna accomplish what you need to in the present?
Well thanks, I expected a bit of mockery :P Lol.Lol I got ya, the good maniac, as in Hulkamaniacs :P Also i meant the restaurant, not Tim Drake, I'm not um... who's a villain that eats people? I can't think of one.Exactly. Sad thing is they'd done a show before, a PBS show called My Bedbugs and it won a ton of awards, so I'm thinking this is gonna be a very lucrative job and learning experience. But they were always on the next project, thinking of doing movies while we're filming shows...
Nah, I'll save my taunts for when you really deserve them, like the whole Jason Man debacle...Zactly. The good maniac, not the insane maniac. Although since I'm writing it, you can never be 100% sure which one I'm using! :pHmm, a cannibal comic character... Jeez, there really aren't very many... Ah, after some thought, Killer Croc springs to mind! Besides Croc though, I really can't think of any, from DC OR Marvel... Once Wolverine ate pieces of his own arm to survive in Antartica, does that count?Ha, I guess they already had their awards, so they were thinking of the next step, which I guess was movies.
Lol it was a joke :P How'd it jump from a joke to a debacle, next it'll be a tragedy lol.Or maybe we're just the inmates following you, The Joker :P Ah Croc, I knew someone ate peop...wait what? He ate his own arm? Because it regenerates or something?Maybe, hell I just wish I interned on that show, I'd have a hell of a credit on my resume, I'll tell ya that much!
HA! I like that! Next time it'll be the Jason Man TRAGEDY! :pWell, I'd def rather be the Joker as opposed to... let's say the Mad Hatter. That would really suck!Yup, I'm pretty sure it was Ultimate Wolverine(not the mainstream one), but he got trapped under some rocks in a cave in Antartica(I think)for a few months, and he survived by drinking the melted snow around him while snacking on his regenerating arm. Mmm, tasty!
Lol hm.. sooner or later you will screw up my friend, and have a tragedy of your own :PHm, or maybe, you can just be the Penguin. :P *runs*Lol @ Mmm, tasty! So I gotta ask, how'd our arm chewing, snow drinking, skin regenerating Canadian do to escape?
I don't know... You've set the bar pretty high with the Jason Man tragedy! :pYou better keep running!!! The Penguin... Ugh.I think he was rescued by SHIELD, although you have to wonder why it took them so long to find him!
Lol I'm not speaking of that anymore.Lol why don't you wanna be the Penguin? We can get you and umbrella :)Awww they coulda just used a big metal detector or something.
Yeah, what's more menacing then a little fat guy who runs around with an umbrella... Then you wonder why I can't stand the Penguin! I mean really, who thought THAT was a good idea for a villain???The weird thing was the fact that I think Wolvie was actually on a mission for SHIELD, so you'd think they'd have went looking for him before he had to resort to self-canibalizing himself!
Lol I just like messing with you, I agree. But what kinda revamp could you give him to at least make him worth caring about?Wow, they just didn't even care to look for the guy? Someone just said how'd that mission with Logan end up? And Fury goes..Oh crap!
Jeez, even a genius like myself can't figure out a way to revamp Penguin! ;-) Umm, hmm... I don't know, I'm stumped. I mean no matter what, he's still going to be a short fat guy with ridiculous features...HA! Those last two lines really made me laugh! That's prob about the time Fury realizes he needs to take a vacation to recharge his batteries!
Penguin...yeah there's nothing you can do, I say just kill him off. Feed him to Croc or Great White and move on because there's NOTHING you can do to make him interesting at all.Lol right? So tell me this, what's the deal with Fury and Black Widow? Are they together or whats up?
I personally wouldn't mind feeding Penguin to Killer Croc...I don't think there is a deal between Nick and Widow. She seems to be in a pretty steady relationship with Bucky, while I don't think Nick is currently with anybody... Unless you know something I don't!
Then Croc would slowly shrink, gain weight and wear top hats and suits... Ya are what ya eat.Nah, they always seemed a little TOO Loyal to me haha. And In one issue she apparently liked Deadpool because she laughed at his jokes, kissed him and saved his life, when she was working with the Thunderbolts.
Ugh, Killer Penguin... >:-(Damn, Tasha is two-timing Bucky with Deadpool?!? What the hell was she smoking!
Lol Killer Penguin sounds horribly horribly bad. Almost as bad as Jason Man...If not worse :PLol I swear to ya dude, she even kept him from dying. She wants to get her some of that Regeneratin Degenerate. Isn't Bucky armless?
Ha, Killer Penguin... What the HELL is that?!? *sigh* Yup, Bucky has a metal arm to replace the one he lost during WWII. It's been pretty upgraded to the point where it's almost like a real arm though. Just shinier!
Lol you gotta imagine if Penguin got REALLY buff, his arms exploded outta his tux and he was like 6'10 but still had a fat round face and a top hat. Lmao...that sounds soooo stupid.So basically, They just made Roy into Bucky and added the return of his drug problem?
Hey, you know what? Even that is better then the current Penguin. Although not by much! :pHa, yeah it sure seems like it! Why not I guess. They seem to be totally ripping off Captain America with Batman, so they might as well rip off Bucky as well!
Lol I imagine that as like, that movie The Fly when the guy has his head on the fly's body.Lol hey, at least it's Roy and not Dick.
Ha! I should put together a pic of Bane's body with the Penguin's head on it!Yeah, but who knows what's in store for poor Dick...
Lmao if you do that I'll post it at my blog too, permanently on the side of my blog.As long as he doesn't get killed or maimed I'm happy with it, or Jason Todd'd. That's worse than the other two!
When I have the time this weekend, I've GOT to do that!Man, I guess being Jason Todd'd WOULD be worse then death, wouldn't it! Poor, poor Jason...
Lol alright, hit me with a link when ya do.Yeah, starting to wish SB Prime never punched that intergalactic magical reviving people from the dead wall!
So long as I remember, will do!Eh, I'm STILL holding out hope that Jason will still find a place in the DCU. Especially with the Judd Winick mini coming up. If ANYBODY can fix the mess Jason has turned into it's Judd.
Lol so in other words, until after this post :PYeah, I'm really looking forward to that, hopefully it sells big and DC realizes people like Jason.Also I don't know if you have a DC pick for next week but I wanna suggest if possible, Power Girl or Sinestro.
Wait, what were we talking about? :PYeah man, I'm also hoping that the series sells well for DC, but with how terribly Jason has been handled as of late, I'm not holding my breath...Hmm, I could def do either of those characters. I was thinking about an Impulse or Young Justice week, but it's still way early yet!
Lol I love that joke.Yeah, hell If it weren't for how well Judd has written Jason in the past I wouldn't even wanna read it. I hate that Geoff can bring back Hal and Barry but guys like Roy and Jason can be misused so much.Ooh I'd like both of those choices, they definitely trump my picks.
No seriously, what were we talking about? :PExactly, Judd nailed the Jason Todd character SO well during the issues in which he used him. I mean he just got everything SO right. That scene between Bats, Jason and Joker in Bats #649(I think)is still one of my all-time favorite Batman moments.Really? Like I said, it's still early, so I'm still undecided(it's not like I've even pulled any comics for next week or anything), so if you want me to go in a different direction, I very easily can.
You said when Falisha and I get married you were gonna give me a sword out of your collection as a wedding present :DAgreed, definitely one of my favorite moments, hell probably my favorite Jason Todd moment too. Hell I wanna read that again just from you mentioning it...I can't wait to read Judd's new Jason stuff.Yeah I think a Young Justice week would be fun, or Impulse, to be honest I'd rather just see a Bart Allen week than just Impulse but either would be cool.
Oh, forgot to tell you, WWE released the following on Thursday:Jesse of Jesse and Festus aka Slam Master J, Funaki, Mike Knox, Mickie James and Shelton Benjamin...Yes they are idiots for the last two.
Wow really? I don't remember that... Well I guess if that's what we were talking about... Wait a minute, I'll just scroll up a few comments! Oh yeah, the Bane/Penguin picture... Hmm, I sure don't see that happening anytime soon!Dude, after I typed that out yesterday I felt the same way, I really wanted to pull and read that entire storyline again!A Bart Allen week? Hmm, I'd prob do 3 Impulse picks, 3 Teen Titans(for Kid Flash)and one Fastest Man Alive scan. That can all def be done, then I could always do a YJ week sometime down the road. You know, I really have to type down somewhere which characters I've spotlighted so far just so I don't start repeating characters!Wow, I can't believe they let Shelton go! Well, TNA should be on his phone ASAP to sign him up! Who knows, maybe this'll all work out for Shelton, the guy can obviously work, maybe a place like TNA will take him and let his ringwork do the talking for him... Wait, what the hell am I talking about?!? This is TNA, he'll probably come in and get squashed by Kevin Nash or something! Funaki kind of surprises me too, 'cause he's been there FOREVER!!! I guess somebody must have reminded Vince that Funaki was still under contract...
Damn you for those scrolling up abilities! Thought I was gonna get an awesome wedding present one day lol.That storyline and the Flash Fastest Man Alive series are definitely gonna be re-read by me when I get rid of all the other stuff I gotta read.Awesome, gotta love a Bart Allen week. If possible I'd love to see Bart from Titan's east scan popping up, that'd be pretty cool.Lol I was also shocked Funaki got fired, he'd been under the radar forever!!! And yeah I mean, maybe it'd work or Shelton in TNA since he's tight with Angle and the dude is talented as hell, but if not I'd love to see him pop up in Ring of Honor.
Yes, that's me, the master of the scroll! And you already know what your wedding present from me is going to be... A bunch of comic books!There are SO many things I'd love to pull out and re-read, but I have so many comics I still have yet to read that I'd feel bad if I read something I've read already while something new was still laying on my floor...Well, I'm prob going to go with 3 Impulse, 3 Teen Titans and 1 F:FMA, so maybe I'll try to remember that and put future Bart as one of the Teen Titans scans.I've got to say, Funaki had an awesome career in the E! The guy worked there for like what, 10-12 years and barely did any work during the last couple of years! As for Shelton, I'm sure he's going to land on his feet somewhere. He's too talented not to.
Lol I'm fine with that, because you're gonna mistakenly give us Action Comics #1, Lol.Same here, well dresser, not floor because I don't have the Rocky Mountains in comic book form like you my friend.I'm fine with that. Once again I helped make the pick for the Uncanny Blog, man...I'm gonna start charging you soon :PRight? I heard he's neighbors with HBK too. Man, If I was him I'd be saving money, he hasn't had a match in like four years either lol. And yeah Shelton is gonna be fine, probably go wrestle AJ Styles in TNA.
Ha! If I had Action #1, I'd prob be sitting pretty in a mansion somewhere, not living in a basement!I should really take a few pics of my comics just to give you some idea of how insanely large my collection is!You mean probably go to TNA and get defeated by Hulk Hogan, right? ;-)
Yeah and you'd be too rich to be my friend too :P Lol just kidding.Hell do it man, I'm hella interested in that and your awesome ninja-like weapon collection.Yep, of course. Oh btw, I don't know if I mentioned it btw RVD won the belt last week on Impact...soo yeah.
Hey man, there's no reason to kid, it's the truth! :DNext time I'm over my parents place I'll see if I can remember to grab their camera and snap a few pics. My webcam sucks, or I'd just use that.Yeah, I'd heard about that. I can't say I'm terribly upset about that, RVD is a name to many WWE fans while they may not be all that familiar with who AJ Styles is. I'd give RVD a run with the strap for a while, see if you can snag a few new viewers and then drop the belt back to AJ.
Lmao :P I'd just have you buy all my comics from then on...buddy, pal, amigo :DSweet, looking forward to it, and hell at least you have a webcam, my laptop doesn't have one.True, RVD's never been a champion in my eyes though. He has horrible mic skills and he never seems to care about anything, but that's just my opinion. But like you said, giving him the strap does make sense. And where'd you hear that? You got other wrestling friends? :P Lol
Ha! Flattery will get you... everywhere! :PYeah, it came installed on the laptop, even though I don't think I've ever really used it for anything...Yeah, RVD def sucks on the mic, but he does have a certain something... He has an aura about him that really seems to draw the fans in. Plus he has some unique offense, which always helps.
Lol you know it, I got an A+ in Flattery with a B in compliments :)Lucky. I wish my laptop had a webcam, although I doubt I'd use it but I'd just like the option, ya know?Yeah, he has what I refer to as The Jeff Hardy gene where he sucks on the mic but does crazy/innovative things to get the fans to love him, another notable is Shane McMahon.So when Linda loses you think they'll go back PG-13?
"The Jeff Hardy Gene"? Ha, I love it, that's brilliant! And SO true! They both have that certain "it" that a lot of guys just don't have, but they can't cut a promo to save their lives!I honestly don't think so... I think Vince is full steam ahead trying to keep a younger audience for now, and as such, I don't think he's in any kind of hurry to go back to TV-14 again. He finally has his Hulk Hogan 2.0(which is something he's been looking for FOREVER!)in Cena, and since the ratings are steady, I just don't see a change. Since Cena hasn't turned heel by now, that shows me that he's NOT going to turn anytime soon, and for as long as Cena is a face, WWE is staying TV-PG.
Lol I swear I came up with that while I was typing it. Yep, those two are super over and suck at promo's SO bad, I'm trying to think who else fits the criteria.Hm...I hope you're wrong. I can see why you'd be right but this no blood thing is just stupid. I could see less blood but when their busted open the hardway just let it go. If kids see it causes blood maybe they won't be so quick to imitate it.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! SHES SO STUPID!! WHO THE HELL DOES SF THINK SHE IS?!?!?!?!?
Seriously! Can you IMAGINE what Wonder Woman could do to Starfire?! That really does go to show you how dumb Starfire is!
