I am really in the season already. Considering that most years I feel overworked, directing all kinds of music, this year I feel more relaxed. Maybe because I am really into the play I am helping direct this time. Or maybe because the church Christmas cantata really does it for me. I don’t know. But today is Thanksgiving, and I am just about ready to put that tree up!
Hub City geeks are probably wondering what it is I might actually want for Christmas. Well I already know some things coming my way. Or at least towards me so that I might review them here at SpartanNerd.com. So here’s the list!
1. I am getting a foil Windswept Heath for my anniversary. Those of you who REALLY know me will appreciate why I like this card so much!
2. The Dual Deck Anthology is as good as pre-ordered! I will review it as soon as I get it, guys and girls. I am absolutely psyched!
3. SpartanKid jumped me on this one. He wants the new “Nihiri, the Lithomancer” Commander deck!
4. And the same kid is asking for the new set of Mega-Man cards! (Will keep my readers posted as I can review things.)
5. Looks like I missed out on getting a Battle Ram…:( Regardless, I will have my eye on the MattyCollector Flash Sales on Cyber Monday.
6. Oh yes. It seems it is time for a big upgrade. The SpartanNerd family is moving from the “old school” style of TV to the flat screen style! Now we can enjoy modern games the way they should be enjoyed!
In other news, I am actually thinking about NOT subscribing to Batman comics anymore. Not because I don’t like them. But because I feel out of the loop. The subscriber is punished for his loyalty. Sure, you get a better deal on your comics. This year has been great in the value department. But on the other hand, sometimes the books are WEEKS late. Also, at least one issue was lost in the mail this year. And occasionally they arrive beat up. I intend to keep reading them, but cherry picking. And I suppose paying newsstand price. I find myself buying comics weekly anyways, with Batman Eternal and Futures End. Those will be wrapping up in the spring, just about time for my subscriptions to run out. If I want to really serve the blogosphere, then I should make this change.
What do you think, Hub-City geeks? Let me know in the comments!
