Ain't this the truth [Mar. 11th, 2009|08:33 am]

Lifted straight from the "news" post at Dominic Deegan, one of my favorite webcomics:

"Comic Book downer? March 11, 2009 Posted by Mookie
Wednesday was my favorite day of the week for a long time. Wednesday is the day that new comic books hit the shops, and I would go there with child-like enthusiasm to see what happened next to my favorite superheroes in peril.

Lately, however, that feeling has been drifting away from me. Not because I enjoy comic books less, but because the companies in charge of putting them out have made them less fun to read.

Both Marvel and DC are guilty of this and it's driving me batty. They've both got hundreds of heroes with countless worlds to explore! With that kind of canvas, one would think the variety of stories to read would be nearly endless! But no. With hundreds of heroes and countless worlds and possibilities... they choose to tell ONE story that crosses over into all their other titles. Every so often that makes for a really memorable tale of epic scope! But every month?

There seems to be a trend to park every story at the corner of Dark Street and Gritty Avenue, too. I read comics because I want to be cheered up! The world is dark and gritty enough these days as it is!

When I was a kid, a comic book used to be a world you wanted to escape to, not from. I hope someone in charge of these things remembers that one day so I can be as enthusiastic as I used to be about Comic Book Day."

Amen to that, dude. Amen, indeed. That sums up everything I don't like about today's comics as well.

So momerat, I just heard on the radio that Chrysler intends to install wi-fi into their cars starting with either this or next model year. Get in, open your laptop, connect, and voila, intarweb!

Makes me wonder when the toaster slots in the dash will become standard features. I want my pop-tarts to go, dammit!

It's official. I passed the second exam yesterday (with flying colors, no less) and now I'm REALLY A+ certified. Yay.

Feeling much better now than I did yesterday. Still not 100%, but better. Game is on.

Have been all day.

Game tomorrow is iffy at this point. I haven't eaten a thing since a donut this morning--and even that, I had to basically force down.

Felt like I had to throw up about 4 times today, but didn't.

Hope it passes, and quickly. It's ugly.
