hope you had a nice weekend and are getting into the spirit!
sharon and i watched "it's a wonderful life!" last night...
what are you watching ...?
so, i've mentioned my pal, kc carlson, here a few times--and posted his responses to the "five for friday" once or twice since something in his computer won't allow him to register with blogger (and for those of you who can't or don't want to do that, please remember that you can still send your comments to me at email@example.com and i'll be happy to put them up for you!). kc is formerly from wisconsin--a state very near and dear to my heart--is a former editor from dc comics--guiding, among others, superman and the legion to new heights in the late 80's and 90's--and, as i have been finding out over the past few months, an INCREDIBLE musicfile!! holy crap--this guy knows EVERYTHING!!
kc also writes various articles and essays for many of the cooler on-line comics sites and magazines.
so, as we have been trading things back and forth, one of things kc threw my way was a link to his latest column at westfieldcomics.com, the topic, as you will see, being comic book collecting. or rather, the manic obsession that has gripped us all at one time or another as we hunt down our elusive four-colored treasures! go check it out--it's a wonderful story told by an excellent storyteller!
kc's column at westfield comics--
here are the answers to the
"five for friday"
1. which godzilla foe looked like a giant turtle?
(though my buddy, bill nolan, points out that gamera was the top monster at a rival movie company and that he and gozilla never battled--but they did at the box office!! : )
(no? sorry, bill--you're right...)
2. originally, lucky charms featured only four marshmallow shapes; orange stars, pink hearts, yellow moons, and green clovers. in 1979 a fifth shape was added. what was it?
3. what is the name of the publishing company responsible for the amazing modern masters series featuring insights into the lives and careers of comics legends?
4. what time is it?
in the words of yogi berra when asked the time by mickey mantle, "you mean now?"
5. name five of the real people who have appeared in the perhapanauts.
dr. michael o'neil
dr. baldev das
craig and me
(plus, while the cast of "scrubs" appears in second chances, but i wasn't counting them because it's actually their characters rather than the real people. but we can count them too...)
smell ya later!
