cully's RED


i put this off all last week in favor of keeping things halloween-oriented and figured that i'd write a little something about RED today...or as we call it in our house cully's RED (i know it's warren and cully's RED, and though i've met warren once or twice and he's a very nice guy and i, of course, love his stuff...cully's a brother and well, dammit, i'm just so proud of him!)
anyway, i was going to write something up about it this morning, but matt said everything i was going to say over on ad nauseam so you should just go over there and read that. i meant every word.

we loved it! we saw it last wednesday and i think i gotta see it again. i might have missed some of it while i was laughing so hard.

if you haven't seen it yet, do yourself a favor and go now!
the commercials don't give everything away (though that bruce-willis-stepping-out-of-the-car thing is pretty cool and darn near impossible to duplicate. my nephew and i were trying to do it all last weekend and i'm still bruised.) it's a wild, hilarious action-packed thrill-ride and you'd be very disappointed in yourself if you let it get away!


now that halloween is over and craig and i have to get our stuff together for mid-ohio con next weekend--you'll be there, right? we will!--i thought i'd take a moment to run out the jpgs that have been collecting on my desktop the past week or so...
here they are...

before the video games and the tv show and the sam and max shaped corn dogs--there was sam and max the comic book! one of my all time favorite series that busted out of the 80s black and white explosion! man, this is a funny book and no matter what the job, writer and artist, steve purcell, and his self-appointed freelance police would make me laugh at least three times a page! if you want some laughs and some great comic fun, track down an copy of sam and max: surfin' the highway and enjoy!

i labelled this one, how...?

sharon saved this one of a lion cub taking a swim

from our pal down-under, matt pott sent me this fantastic mr. fantastic!

says it all...

okay--happy monday, everybody!
and happy november!
smell ya later!

Great way to kick off November.

Cool art from downunder and both movie and book reviews.

Wish I was headed to the Mid-Ohio con, but I know Team 'Hap will have a great time.
