all outta whack...

okay...

apparently, the day you STARTED a blog entry is the day it records here on blogger. so while i posted that last post on monday, it recorded it as last friday. so i'm all outta whack.

this one, which should be dated wednesday, january 3, will be followed by an entry for friday, so that i can catch up and make sure i nail my "three-a-week" promise. also tomorrow will have trivia questions.

anyway, enough of that.
went to see "rocky balboa" with my dad on tuesday night and then talked with ringo for about an hour or so yesterday about how much we dug it. (no, we didn't spend the whole hour talking about rocky...) we were both excited by stallone's ability to capture so much of what made the first movie so moving without doing the same old thing all over again. as a storyteller and an actor, you can really see INSIDE the man again...and it was just great! poor guy was certainly typecast all those years ago--hell, he typecast himself, but here's a guy who really deserves a break. and certainly another look.
also, when that theme music--the original theme music--came up, i almost cried.

on another note, someone on ebay is selling--i guess it's s'posed to be a mummified chupacabra. it's advertised as a gaff (a fabricated oddity) so they're not trying to tell you it's real. it looks to me like the head from a t-rex model or something and built up with modeling clay or sculpy.





still kinda cool though...































and just so you don't forget,
PERHAPANAUTS:SECOND CHANCES #3








is out in stores today! my favorite issue so far--although #4 is certainly turning into something we didn't plan on at the start...
let us know whatcha think of issue 3 when you get it!

and, as i noted in the last post, check out my "INSIDE LOOK" over at
www.brokenfrontier.com
and thanks to our pal, frederik hautain, for that!





that's it for now!
more tomorrow!
smell ya later!

I actually pre-ordered the trade today from my mail order comic supplier, even tho' I have the individual issues on order, too. What am I, crazy!?! Since I get my comics monthly, I won't be seeing #3 for about a month... boo!

Anyway, I just wanted to get the trade so I could have Brian autograph it... maybe I'll have you all sign it where ever you show up in the story...

I just read a nice Perhaps review in the Onion AV section:

OK, the review is a little snarky, but positive. Plus, it's listed with some other good comics.

Todd,

Another great issue. I won't go into any details so as not to spoil it for the folks who have to wait to get their copies in the mail, but suffice to say, for a Molly fan like myself, the only thing that could have improved Issue No. 3 would have been an appearance of the C.R.I.C.K.E.T. Unit.

Great take on the dover demon; it fits perfectly with what little was known about the creature. Can't wait for issue No. 4.

As for the art, Craig and Rico have again outdone themselves, especially on the cover.

Finally, and I'm sure this is a coincidence, but the Horsepower item at the end of the book reminded me that 2007 marks the 30th anniversary of both the Dover Demon and Star Wars. Hmmmmm, wonder if that means anything.
