Because then I can’t hurt you anymore.
Not 100% sure what you mean about that because I haven’t read the book but I did receive a brief summary of it so I THINK I know….
Buuut yeah, stripper would be awkward, I wouldn’t want to pay for that, AND I’d rather it be someone I care for/am interested in.
Most guys want To have a huge going To basic party and get wasted, maybe get laid and such, I don’t even care. All I want is to sleep with a girl, in the most innocent form of the word. Snuggle, fall asleep, wake up, all with the same person, and a kiss or two wouldn’t ruin it.
I hate that the odds are so against me on this one it’s ridiculous. :(
Its VERY useful but gets in the way at times. I am so good at lying to people that I an temporarily convince myself it’s the truth.
Perfect example, this morning I slept through my alarm to get up at work. Two hours later my boss calls trying To find me. Accroding to just woken up me, I have had two dead car batteries in the last week (the same thing happened a couple days ago.)
So I get there and tell him I’m sorry for being late (I am) and he tells me that its probably nit the battery that’s bad if IR ate through two. Now I bought a uses car battery because I was low on money and needed It get to my next paycheck.
Where does my brain get these things? I think it might be linked to another universe That is a perpetual soap opera.
This problem wouldn’t bother me if it didn’t also let itself loose in casual conversation. I won’t think About it, I’ll be telling perfectly normal truths And out of nowhere take a tangent into the untrue. Moat of the time I try To catch myself but on occasional it goes unnoticed for a while.
I’m surprised This hasn’t come to bite me in the ass yet.
It’s over, no more #1’s, well except for the ones I need to go back and read but those don’t count… I really enjoyed reading all the new stories, I’m kinda new to all this so start fresh was nice for me. I guess #2s wont be So bad, maybe some will keep that new story arc smell. Anyway let’s start This review already.
I begin with what I wasn’t a big fan of, now a friend of mine is gonna hate me for this but, GL: New Guardians was just not my cup of tea. The story seemed a little too rushed for my taste, Kyle rayner’s “coming into his powers” period last like two pages, most heroes that lasts a couple comics of trail and error. He seemed like he’d done it before, not Just because he had a clever mind but That he already had the mental fortitude and willpower to go toe to toe with Hal, and that just doesn’t happen. I might keep reading to piss off my friend but I don’t think this one will be a regualar issue for me.
Batman: DK and Superman were so-so this week. Both issues seemed kind of slow and unimportant. Both has some emotional aspect to them and enough plot to keep me till the last page bit neither really made me jump from my seat and ask what would happen next. They both just seemed humdrum. I hope these titles shape up but I’m not impressed so far.
Teen titans was a good issue this week. I liked the background idea, it was a lot like the titans of the past and young justice. For the sake of title I hope the league stays out of this one, I think these titans can stand on their own, no need for mentoring. The ending was not the ending I wanted but one I could have expected. The tie in with superboy comic is there but I kind of wished it didn’t appear this soon. Over all this issue gets a thumbs up and my interest.
Next up in the Flash. Now I must admit he is kind of a favourite of mine, and this issue didn’t disappoint. The twist was unexpected and story seems genuine. I loved the art style and to be honest I think I have a man crush on the flash, he’s hot! This one is going places and I’ll be there to watch.
Last buy not least, my unexpected favourite for the week, and a real pleasure, Aquaman. This comic was AWESOME. The author played off his past, how no one liked him and thought he was the biggest joke in the superhero world. He is an outcast in both worlds, the surface and Atlantis, and all he wants is a home. Aquaman shows real dynamic characteristics and I already like the Guy. I wasn’t aware he had some Of the powers he had but it was nothing bad. Way to go DC, took one of the most hated characters and made him a crowd pleaser, I approve highly.
Well there you go folks. For the most part that’s it for the #1s. When I get paid next week I might pick up some more issues but not many. I think 20-something story lines might already be too many to follow.
It was long too. D: I’ll try again in a minute or two. :/
Remember the good ol’ days? Remember when everything was better and life was smooth sailing? Those days were great, they are also nice comforting lies.
I’ve had my plaque of the “good ol’ days” here recently, in the last year my life has completely changed directions in ways I would have NEVER expected. Those days of yesteryear always seem so much better at first but then I do something. See most people stop at the good, the trick to the “good ol’ days” is to remember that bad too. I had some fun times but I had more than my fair share of bad. The reason this move in my life hasn’t been met by any hesitation by me is because I am fighting the idea that I already had it made in the shade.
Change is hard and the enemy of the “good ol’ days” but it isn’t bad. You have to fair with yourself because no one else will be.
Verbs and nouns and metaphors and hidden meanings.
I’m especially sick of sentences.
The English language, such a broken and complex thing, with all it’s rules and exceptions, sructures and times to break them, is a metaphor in itself for life. The sentence lives and breathes and dies in the spand of a captiolization and a period. There is no ending as definent as the period. The being that is a sentence can even pause, via a comma or two, to stop and think back on itself, to explain itself, or even just to get away from the past. Sometimes sentence like to be something thier not like a robot. They dance without moving. In the short time span a sentence may have on this earth it does it’s best to present a subject, give an action, and fall gracefully.
Don’t be sick of sentences, morn them, for their lives are moved by our whims. Such giving creatures.
“you can either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villian”
I might not agree with your statement sir I’ve never met »
but I will DIE defending you’re right to feel that way.
I am not a fan of “communities”
I am a champion of the individual and their rights
I like government and to an extent “big government” but not all of the government
At the end of the day, having the biggest stick is still the best political policy
Taxes should be scaled
social Security benefactors should have case agents who review aand track claims
people need to grow up and rely more on themselves to solve problems
alabama should have a lottery
guns are good
God in government is bad
Rage in my ask box all you want, LOVE YOU :3
So I BS’d my way into a free tattoo last night and I know the idea I want to commemorate just not sure. In my home town if you ask people what they think of it, 99% will tell you they HATE the place. The thing is that most people don’t realize what they have until it’s gone. I’ve been praising my hometown since I moved away and came back when I was really young. Itself unique in its own right. Collectively ive been here almost 12, easily the biggest portion of my life and I think it deserves some skin recognition. I’m from Lower Alabama. This tat is gonna be a challenge for me, finding something that does the area justice and I’m okay with.
My picks this week were Blue Beetle, Wonder Woman, Batman, Supergirl, Legion of Superheroes, Captian Atom, and DCU Presents: Deadman.
Legion of Superheroes and Captian Atom were on my meh list this week. Captain MIGHT get some love from me after issue 2 but right now he just seems like an over powered mess. I have heard that it is hard to get into him unless you really like it or are previously a fan, but I’m neither. The writing is there and so is the story, kinda, but I wasn’t hooked like I was with so many of the other titles. Legion of Superheroes was the same way, it seeemed well written but not interesting to me. Frankly the only reason I even cared about this one was becuase I knew they used to help Super Man, but that is no longer the case. I’ll probably end up reading all the first 52 and MOST of the second, but I doubt either of these will make it to third issue with me.
Supergirl and Deadman were okay for me. I like the idea of Supergirl becuase she is another Kryptonian who isn’t all “truth justice and the american way” and isn’t FROM here. This first issue was kinda without story but there is room for development pretty obviously. She will get my attention and I rather do hope that the story line that iss about to develop is a good one, I’d hate to see a good character go to waste. Deadman I LOVE the idea of. I got into the Cartoon Network’s newest Batman show over the summer and i rather liked his episodes. This comic was a nice start for me, not EXACTLY like the show but that’s how it always is. His character is one who HEAVILY relies on development device and lot rathar than the fact he is a hero and I think thats a freat idea. Honestly I like the idea of a “presents” comic, it gives DC a way to judge if certian superheroes should get their own runs.
Batman was above average for me. Honestly I was never a big fan of 99% of the Justice League, as I previously stated they all seem a little over powered for me. Batman isn’t overpowered s much as he is over played. This first issue was good though. It’s not a reboot though, the Gate of Gotham series DOES tie into this series but I never got around to reading those, I suppose I should sometime. Big hope for the next Batman though, definently gonna read that one.
Now on to the last two, my faves for the week. Let me start off with my fanboy rave, WONDERWOMAN MOSTLY NAKED OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!! Okay…. now that I have that out…. Wonder Woman was a surprisingly AMAZING read. It seemed REALLY horroish and I love that angle. The mythology tie ins are pretty grand too and I like how they make things seem a little bit more real world. Cloth-option women DID help push it along in my young-ish mind but really the writing WAS there. The pages were turning too quickly and the story just ended to quick for me, but in a good way. DC really knows how to write good cliffhangars.
Blue Beetle was my big comic for the week. I was waiting for it, and it delivered. I love his concept, VERY young superhero with not white background. I had a friend who was turned off by the Spanglish but gorwing up in that culture I understood and could relate to what was going on. I wasn’t subjegated to some of the things he was but I understand their serverity. The story seems really solid on this one too and the idea that a tie-in with another comic is THAT OBVIOUS first issue really pleases me. This reboot really does make the Universe seem like one place, not 52 different story lines happening all by themselves.
