Groovy…I picked up a Griffin, Battleground Teela, and Sky High with Jet Sled. Reviews will be posted when I get them!
Dork…I missed my chance with Mosquitor. I finally decided I didn’t really want Keldor just for his cape (not for $21), and decided against the Snake Warriors too.
Groovy…I was rewarded a gift certificate from Wulven Entertainment for my investment in their property when I purchased physical Shadow Era: The Call of the Crystals cards from them two summers ago. (One of the best investments ever in nerd property!)
Dork…For some stupid reason I can’t seem to get the gift credit to redeem. I am supposed to purchase a booster box of the next Shadow Era set, “Dark Prophecies.” But when I get to the billing screen the credit isn’t showing. 😦 (I would desperately like to review some of these physical cards…)
Groovy…My Macbook Pro has been doing fine….Then I started hearing clicking and whirring….Thinking it a dying hard drive, I replaced it and upgraded it. Now it has a 1TB hybrid drive. That is more storage space than all of my other computing devices combined!
Dork…The whirring and clicking continues…and my battery is draining faster. I know now that it wasn’t the hard drive failing at all, but the fan. (The battery probably is affected by the new Hard Drive as well.) I have disassembled my machine and tried air spraying it out. But that hasn’t worked. I think the axle needs some grease…But I don’t have the required TORX screwdrivers to take the fan apart.
Groovy…I have been playing Batman:Arkham Asylum. This is my second play through. When I played it before, it was on Steam, and on the Windows partition of my (old) hard drive. I went ahead and purchased the Mac version…It is every bit as good without the hassle of Steam and Windoze.
Dork…I am ditching a few comic subscriptions. Aquaman has bored me to death. And I am shucking Action Comics as well. I love Superman. But the comics lose me. The writers insist that you buy into the whole eco-system in order to understand what is going on. I subscribed to Action Comics, thinking that I wouldn’t have all of that “continuity misunderstanding” trouble. I would have every issue. Makes sense. But Superman is continually being crossed over…And this complicates the story, as well as frustrates me because I feel a need to have a complete story, and so I have to go hunt the issues of other titles I am not subscribed to. I have a longing to read “H’el On Earth,” which is mostly a Supergirl story…because of the Action Comics Annual #2. Also, because I haven’t been reading Superman (the title) I have missed a lot of stuff about Brainiac, which was important to the last Action Comics story arc “Psi War.” I am done. Sorry Supes. Maybe if they go back to writing you like they did back at the beginning of the New 52, I will return.
So what will I subscribe to in their places? I am thinking maybe something Marvel..Maybe they will cure the whole Superior Spider-man complex. Either that, or maybe I will just invest in the Ninja Turtle eco-system again. I stopped buying those books only because my brain couldn’t take any more fantasy. But lately I am missing something a little different. The biggest problem here is you pretty much have to buy them in the store. The Tangled Web keeps them in stock in general, but just the same, I feel I have to get them once I get started. Then again, maybe I’ll just subscribe to the Justice League again. I suppose I have a little time to consider it. One thing is certain, I have been very satisfied with reading Batman stories!
