Does anyone read your blog?

The answer is Yes.

I was wondering that question this evening. Does anyone read “my” blog? Well I would have to say that if I read other people’s blogs, they in turn must read mine? The problem is no one is leaving a comment to say they were there or “hey I read your blog”.

A simple comment can inspire people to write even more and knowing that will inspire you to write even more. So leave a comment and pass it on ~

Cheap oil at what cost?

Drill Here, Drill Now... my ass!

Yes, I said it. Let the shit hit the fan and the chunks land where they may. Then compost it.

I just don't believe, for one moment, that we should rape what little land we have left for a very short term solution.
This is my blog, my soapbox, and I am standing on it. We need to seek ways to need oil less, not get oil cheaper. People just don't want to put the effort into changing. "How can I have my bananas, grapes and drive all by myself where ever I want to go?"

This sounds cynical. In fact, it sounds so cynical, it's a turn off and for that, I am sorry. I will try to make my point here without coming off as a pain in the ass.

I hate paying this much at the pump, too. I drive to work. But this is bigger than us and not all about me.
Instead of scrambling around, trying to find more cheap oil, don't we need to commit to find alternatives? Not just alternative fuels but alternative lifestyles?

My friend Jason and I just had this conversation last week... the general collective will only change when they are forced to change. Very few take it upon themselves to shift before necessity demands change.
Being angry, blaming others and hoping for a fresh batch of oil at the end of the rainbow isn't a solution. It's procrastination.

It's comparative to my inner dialog concerning buying a new, fuel efficient vehicle. Will I save money at the pump only to turn around and spend it on a new car payment, interest, and increased insurance rates? No... my solution is to drive as little as possible, grow more food, turn off more lights and spend less where ever possible. My sense of entitlement is something I try to pay close attention to, keep in check, and under control.

I have clean, running water in my house. That's a luxury for most of the world's population. Each day, I try to find something I do have instead of what I don't have... it makes it a bit easier. The future is scary but having hope (instead of anger) makes me brave.

Courage and information is empowering. Pass it on.

War machine on-going series

For James Rhodes, one war leads to another.

This December, Rhodey gets his very own ongoing series once again when WAR MACHINE debuts courtesy of writer Greg Pak and artist Leonardo Manco.

While 12 years have passed since the end of War Machine's last solo turn, Pak says Rhodey can thank Secret Invasion and its fallout for rocketing him back into a new solo title. Well, that and one other thing…

"Terrence Howard's awesome portrayal of Jim Rhodes in the ["Iron Man"] movie has certainly helped put a spotlight on the character," Pak points out, before rather ominously adding, "But more importantly, in the wake of Secret Invasion, the Marvel Universe needs Jim Rhodes—and War Machine—more than it ever has before."




If December seems too far away for your War Machine fix, Pak wants readers to know that Rhodey's solo adventure in the upcoming IRON MAN: DIRECTOR OF S.H.I.E.L.D. #33-35 will not only sate your appetite but lead directly into the all-new series.

"[Writer] Christos Gage's super sweet Secret Invasion tie-in starring War Machine will plunge the character into a brand new status quo," Pak promises. "We'll follow that by launching the new series with a shocking twist or two that should blow minds right and left. Literally.
"I can't say too much for fear of spoilers, but Rhodey may just end up playing the biggest role he ever has in the Marvel Universe. You'll know what I'm talking about when we finally reveal his big nemesis."

While that villain's name remains under wraps, Pak could reveal that part of War Machine's new mission statement brings him to some very real-world situations.




"Every day, somewhere on the planet, tyrants commit the most horrific atrocities imaginable, secure in the knowledge that the outside world won't raise a finger to stop them," Pak explains. "But now War Machine's on the job. And forget the finger—he's raising a couple of ginormous shoulder mounted rocket cannons!"

As for who all Rhodey will share the spotlight with, Pak wouldn't name names, though he would offer up a hint or two:

"Look for some faces that'll be familiar to long-time War Machine fans, as well as a big surprise or two from the Iron Man mythos."

The character of War Machine has always had a particular appeal for Pak, who thinks Rhodey brings something to the table that no other super hero can.




"I was hooked by Jim Rhodes the first time I ever saw him in the funny books," the writer confesses. "He wasn't ever just the other guy in the Iron Man armor; he brought a brand new perspective as a kid who grew up fighting bullies in South Philly and developed a whole new angle on the use of force through his military training.

"For better or for worse, War Machine will go places few other Marvel heroes dare," Pak adds. "And that makes for explosive, high stakes stories that we're champing at the bit to tell."

This series looks good, lets see now, deadpool, nickfury, war machine, hopefully alphaflight. yep 2008 has been a good year for me. i cant wait to start reading this.
Because its like having two iron man's!! plus i think the name war machine sounds cooler.

Northstar fanfiction,

WARNING SOME SEXUAL REFERNCES AND SITUATIONS,
RATED T FOR TEEN
DONT SAY I DIDNT WARN YA











Faster and Faster

Everyone was surprised when Quicksilver and Northstar started dating, though they could see how it happened. Ever since the two men discovered that Jean-Paul was able to speed up his social interactions with Pietro to let him function at a speed that was more natural and comfortable for him, the two had become close. Even Pietro had been surprised. He hadn’t been aware of ever being attracted to a man before, but the relationship had evolved so organically out of that ease of communication that he never questioned it.

His father was furious. His sister was happy for him, but thought he’d lost his mind. Pietro didn’t care. He was happier than he could ever remember being. No one could deny the improvement of his disposition, so the X-Men were willing to overlook quite a few things.

Not the least of which were the “Quickies.”

It had started as a game between the two of them. How fast could they do it? Before long they were doing it in places they could easily be caught and leaving quickly before anyone had the chance. It was Jean-Paul who first mentioned that they were probably moving to fast for anyone in the mansion to actually see them. The rest had been Pietro’s idea. Most had guessed with the occasional blurs were, but sometimes denial isn’t a bad state to be in. Besides, none of them wanted to be the one to actually address the issue anyway.

When Logan was returning from a long mission and saw a blur zap across the room in front of him and felt the breeze of stirred air, all he could do was stand there with a low growl reverberating deep in his chest.

“Either someone has left the window open,” he sighed to himself “or I just watched eight-point-two nanoseconds of hardcore gay porn against my will.”

He closed his eyes. “I want beer.”

Whats the point of a blog?

I don't know. Who knows why anyone writes? To tell a story, true or false. To entertain? To convey knowledge, information, or wisdom? Any or all of these reasons are good enough I'd imagine. One friend asked me if I was still blogging. Sure I said. "But Why?" she persisted. And I really couldn't give her a valid reason. I'm not especially wise so THAT can't be the reason. I'm not especially knowledgeable so I don't really have much to convey to others so THAT can't be the reason. I'm not especially funny, so entertainment is not part of the equation. Why then? I simply don't know. Why do people draw, paint or create poetry? I guess because we like to create. I think I'm creating a story when I write. It's like breathing to me. It's very uncomfortable to hold my breath for any length of time. I need to breath. Writing is breathing.But then, why the public blog? Why not write privately? I do. But it's still not enough for me to just write privately. I feel like this is a good place for a voice. I mostly write for my friends.
If you read this, then thank you!!

Taboo

Taboo = A taboo is a strong social prohibition (or ban) against words, objects, actions, or discussions that are considered undesirable or offensive by a group, culture, society, or community. Breaking a taboo is usually considered objectionable or abhorrent. Some taboo activities or customs are prohibited by law and transgressions may lead to severe penalties. Other taboos result in embarrassment, shame and rudeness.
This is the offical term for the word "taboo"
Now if anyone watches this on national geographic, you know this show is in a way both cool and disgusting, that in mean i just saw the episode where it showed "the freak show" with a migit and a deformed young lady with small legs, and a tall guy about 7'3. now when this was showing, they kept refering to themselfs as freaks, and i just kept wondering why they didnt want to be called mutants, i mean there was about 8 of them, and everyone labeled them as outcasts and such.
so wouldnt it be cool if they were mutants? i even thought of dumb*** george bush saying they could destroy america, and need to produce robots that could hunt and kill them all.
and then people give them the nick name "Sentinels".
But be honest, wouldnt this be awsome?

Moon knight 20#

Im very happy with this series, i have a pretty nice list of comics that i get, and this is by far my most favirote one. first of the art is so good, the story is good, and everything else is good.
and with the death of marc spector coming up, its only going to be better.
Plus this 20 issue is a double sized.
And here is the story info
The Story: “IN THE COMPANY OF WOLVES” Special extra-sized issue illustrated by Mike Deodato (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, NEW AVENGERS) and guest-starring Werewolf By Night! In the aftermath of the Black Spectre debacle, Moon Knight is Public Enemy Number One, a fugitive from justice. But that’s not his only problem. Something awful is happening in the dank basement below Club Lu’Pine. Blood-smeared walls raked by claws tell half the story. To know the whole truth, Moon Knight will have to step into the arena and stare down a creature fueled by instinct and fury. To survive, he must become what he faces. Parental Advisory …$3.99

And take a look at this photo and tell me you dont think that this is just awsome, i mean im such a fanboy of this guy right now, its awsome
Moon Knight

The current versions of ant-man for film?

Well according to the boards at http://edgarwright.co.uk/ the current versions
of ant-man in the movie will be Hank pym in the 60's as he discovers pym particules
and then the main story will go back on scott lang.

But what i am wondering about is what happened to eric o' grady? ( 3rd version of ant-man)
Although i really like both of these ant-man's i think eric o' grady would be more suited for the big screen, i think because he seems to have more of a better cooler looking suit, plus he has some very funny aspects to him, ( readers who read the the irredeemable ant-man series, know what im talking about )

Well either way im happy that we are getting an ant-man film.

Deadpool Merc with a mouth!!!!

Well its almost time for deadpool to make his new ongoing series!!!
ant-man and deadpool are two of my most favriote guys, so i cant wait for this to come out
i cant wait to hear the jokes hes gonna make fighting skrulls!!!
man its gonna be great!!
it comes out in september

Some information on Edgar Wright, director of the upcoming ant-man film

Edgar Howard Wright Jnr. was born on the 18th April 1974 in Poole, in Dorset and grew up in Wells. He started making and forcing films upon his peers at the age of 14 and created such classics as 'Rolf Harris Saves The World' and 'Carbolic Soap'. 1993 saw the release of the film which would later serve as some inspiration for a slightly larger budget production - 'Dead Right' (and can be seen on 'Hot Fuzz' DVD extras). And in 1994 he wrote and directed a no-budget spoof western called 'A Fistful of Fingers' which sold itself as "The greatest western ever made... in Somerset".
Edgar then moved on to bigger and more televisually based things, directing a number of programmes for the Paramount comedy channel and the BBC including 'Asylum' (which starred, amongst others, Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson), 'Is It Bill Bailey?' and 'Alexei Sayle's Merry-Go-Round'.
In 1999 Edgar was asked to direct the sitcom 'Spaced'. Written by and starring Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson as Tim and Daisy respectively, it followed the lives of the two twentysomethings and their friends. The show ran for two series, and was made up of a total of 14 episodes. It was twice nominated and robbed of BAFTAs by less worthy sitcoms. (You can read more about 'Spaced' by clicking here or visiting the Links page).
Whilst shooting a Resident Evil sequence for an episode of 'Spaced' Simon and Edgar both realised that they shared a passion for the brand violence and gore that can only be offered to you by the zombie genre. It was this epiphany that eventually led to the creation of the rom-zom-com (or "romantic zombie comedy", to you) 'Shaun Of The Dead' which Edgar co-wrote with Simon and directed. (You can learn more about the film here).
In 2007 Edgar finished a second film with Simon and Nick called 'Hot Fuzz' - you may have heard of it, it topped the UK box office chart for several weeks. 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' will make up two of the films in Wright and Pegg's so-called "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy". The third has been announced with the working title of 'The World's End'.
Edgar has been nominated for countless awards and has won a Bram Stoker Award (2005) and a British Independent Film Award (2004) for 'Shaun Of The Dead'. 'Shaun Of The Dead' received awards for Best Film (NME Awards), Best British Film (Empire Awards), Best Horror Film (US Saturn Awards), Funniest Scene (Total Film) and Best Poster (Total Film). 'Hot Fuzz' received the award for Best Comedy at the National Movie Awards (2007).
The beardy young so-and-so has also tried his hand at acting, appearing in both series of BBC's 'Look Around You'. He also appeared in George Romero's 'Land Of The Dead' as 'Photo Booth Zombie' and in 'The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy' as 'Deep Thought Technician'.
Edgar is lined up to work on 'Them', 'Ant-Man' and 'Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World' in the coming years.
