Re: I Kill Giants

I keep meaning to get this since it's written by Joe Kelly. Glad others are recommending it.

Re: X-Men

The X-Men history tends to confuse me occasionally even though I've read a lot of it. I tend to not read it so much these days. Peter David's writing on Wolverine: First Class is pretty enjoyable, though. Right now I'm following that and Cable (which has its moments), along with my faaavorite charac...

Re: Personal Art links: DeviantArt, flickr, etc.

I do crafts now and again. Some are on my Flickr. Most recent ones are little clay things.

Re: Perfect Moments In Music

About 3/4 of Matthew Good's songs have those moments, which is why I *heart* his music so.

For a non-Matt example, Tool's "Aenema," beginning at the part where he sings: ""And I'm praying for rain; I'm praying for tidal waves..." Gets me every time.

I always get new insights from A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court when I re-read it. Mark Twain: genius. (And even though it's a b...

Re: What were your dreams last night?

I had a dream that I was at a party at someone's house, for a birthday, but I wasn't really supposed to be there; i.e. I didn't know the person. My friend Rob came to get me, but we couldn't find my shoes (black heeled pumps) so I could go. Every pair he found and thought was mine turned out not to ...

Re: High and low point of your day

High: I made a tiny clay model of Rorschach's journal, and it does, in fact, fit in Tiny Rorschach's Toy Hand.

Low: Still unemployed and broke and annoyed about it.

Matthew Good. The new album's streaming on his site right now, and it's fantastic. (http://www.matthewgood.org/) I recommend "On Nights Like Tonight."
