technical difficulties

okay...

i received a few emails from several members of our perhapa-family reporting that there is some problem with the blog, that, in some cases, people can't click past the first page, that initial perhapa-blog page that list the last four or five entries with the titles and a small snippet of the post. i've passed this on to craig and kieran, our resident computer genius, and, at this point, my only report is that we're looking into it. well, they're looking into it. actually, i think it's gotten to the point where just kieran is looking into it. which is good--that's usually when things like this get fixed...
i'll keep you posted.

(some kind of url confusion or something like that...)

i don't really have all that much to say today...
hope you all had an enjoyable weekend and a wonderful father's day!
i had dinner with my dad and immediate family, had a customarily loooooong conversation with my extra father, and i will be enjoying the company of my extra parents this week when the wieringos stop by for a few days during their summer excursion up through the northeast!

here's a pretty cute prank that was sent to me by alison!
thanks!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

as i continue to have fun with the hulk, iron man, thor, etc. in the super hero squad, i've been finding myself picking up even more of the super hero squad figures and, as hasbro likes to put it, my squad is getting quite super...

i recently managed to acquire for my team--


--a captain america--with cool shield accessory--and red skull--with also cool cosmic cube!



--and cyclops and marvel girl, who, i just realized, came accessory-less...



at this point, realizing that i do have a collector's mentality (i try to fight off my urges to collect 'em all!,)--still, i like to have the characters i've written and the figures that are just...too cool!
so i ask you...who have you got? how many have you got? how super is your squad?




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

as for the glorious return of the five for friday,
not a lot of you logged in...
but that's okay...brian nailed 'em all except the first one,
and colin swung in valiantly and got that!
they are as follows...



1. "i'll shine up my old brown shoes,
put on a brand new shirt,
get off early from work,
if you'll say..."

"i want you to want me"--cheap trick

2. "don't run back inside, darlin', you know just what i'm here for.
so you're scared and you're thinkin' that maybe we ain't that young anymore..."

"thunder road"--bruce springsteen

3. "i was talkin' with a friend of mine,
said a woman had hurt his pride,
told him that she loved him so then,
turned around and let him go."

"don't do me like that"--tom petty and the heartbreakers

4. "when are you gonna come down...?
when are ya goin' to land...?"

"goodbye yellow brick road"--elton john

5. "if there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now..."

"stairway to heaven"--led zepplin

that's it for today!
i gotta run!
smell ya later!

Just what exactly is Cyclops pointing at? Looks like he's saying, "WOAH! Can't touch this!"

Action figures have always been a weakness of mine. I'd buy them all if I could. Unfortunately, I ran out of space a couple of years ago so I had to stop buying them and ended up giving about half of them away at a kid's carnival at work. Broke my heart until I saw the kids playing with them. I've still got the animated Spider-Man figures but it's only a matter of time before I let those go too. I reeeeally want a complete set of those cool Justice League Unlimited figures in the Bruce Timm style and the figures from the DC New Frontier designed to look like Darwyn Cooke drew them. The Kirby-style New Gods figures are cool too.

Sadly, my Squad hasn't been getting very super lately. I'm running out of space to keep my toys and action figures. I do have a nice little collection of them though, and for quite a few, I've actually opened the package...

I've also rearranged them since I too this picture. Now all of the Defenders are together. All of the Avengers. Etc...

I've got a ton of SHS figures! Love those things! Most of them are officially my sons... but I keep 1 Cap and 1 Thor on my desk at all times. Between the two of us, we probably have 12-16 figures.

While those Super Hero Squad figures are just the cutest things ever, I have been successful in fighting the urge to buy them. Just no room left in the house for any more "collections" and, for those wise guys out there who say, buy a bigger house, I'm getting to the stage where I'm thinking about down sizing, not expanding.

I am, however, collecting the Super Hero Squad comics and I'm enjoying those immensely.

Matt Wieringo said...

Same here, Brian. And, yeah, those Squadie comics are fun!

Loren Coleman says that June 24th has special significance for lots of old pagan rituals, and UFO flaps, and hauntings, and all sorts of perhapa-related hijinx. So everyone needs to run out and go trolling for the supernatural today/tomorrow...

My son, Daniel, LOVES the "Squadies"

So far, he has the following packs.. Captain America and Red Skull, Black Costume Spidey and Iron Fist, Iron Man, Crimson Dynamo, and Titatanium Man, Iron Man and Black Widow, Ultimate Cap and Electro, Hulk and Wolverine, and Spider-Woman and Ms. Marvel

Odds are I've gotten some of those mixed up... and his sister has laid claim to all the girl characters.

I'm with Matt, action figures are a weakness of mine as well but I ran out of space, so now I'm down to collecting just the DC Direct figs, with the occasional purchase here and there (and heroclix lol)
