RIP Marvel

I was going to write up a post about how stupid True Blood is, but this takes precedence.

Today it was announced that Disney is buying Marvel Comics for 4 billion dollars. It is truly a dark day in both the comic book world and the creative world in general. I can't even begin to express the utter disgust I feel towards this acquisition. Basically, all the characters I've grown up loving are now going to be owned by one of the biggest corporate shills to ever exist. Everything Disney puts out is coated in saccharine and aimed at the brainless tween crowd.

If you need evidence that Disney cranks out shit, look no further than the Disney channel, Hannah Montana, and the Jonas Brothers. All of it is complete and utter crap. There is not one redeeming quality. And now, my beloved Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, and Deadpool are going to be under their control. It's enough to make Jack Kirby spin in his grave.

I can guarantee that the Marvel comics that I grew up with will not be the same that Rhys knows. It really makes me sick to think about.

When It Rains

Man, there's a lot of stuff going on here lately. I mean, when it rains it pours, right? Where do I even begin?

At the doctor to get shots. Sorry son! on Twitpic

We took Rhys to the doctor yesterday to get some shots and stuff. He's 11 pounds, 8 ounces! That's my boy! He was really good with the shots, too. He cried of course, but he didn't cry as long as I expected. He's tough!

On Saturday night and Sunday we watched Obsessed and Fast & Furious via the mighty Red Box. Neither one were very good. I had high hopes for both of them, but they were just meh. Oh well, it only cost me a dollar since I used a free Red Box code.

Furthermore, Alana and I recorded the latest episode of the podcast on Sunday. We also played a bunch of games, which was great fun. I did some promotions on Sunday night by going to some forums I'm a member of and posting about the latest show. I must have posted on 6 different boards, but only one got pissed and called it spam. Prudes!

Anyway, I'm on the job hunt right now. I'm anticipating being laid off in the coming weeks. I can't afford to be without a job, so if anybody knows of anything, send me an e-mail. Need all the help I can get.

Public Service Announcement

Heard this on the radio this morning and didn't believe it was real.

I signed up for Magpie back before Christmas. I saw it come out and figured what the hell. I use Twitter a lot and have a nice bunch of followers, so why not. I didn't know if it would work at the time, and since you have to build up $60 before you can cash out, it took at while to find out.

Well, I finally did find out. I checked in on it the other day and to my surprise and delight I had $97.30 in my account! I literally had a heart attach, hit myself with the defibrillator, fainted, gave myself smelling salts, and finally pissed all over myself. Once I was cleaned up, I transferred the money to my paypal account and began rubbing my hands together thinking of all the cool shit I can buy.

My first purchase was a guitar stand from the Rock Band store. I had won a $20 credit from, so it only cost me a like $17. Then I went yesterday and got a 1600 point card for Xbox Live and bought 'Splosion Man and The Maw. I still have $50 left, which is going to buy me Halo 3: ODST in September.

I've actually made out pretty well when it comes to Twitter. In addition to making that money from Magpie, I've won stuff from,, and I think I've even won something from Not to mention my friends at
