The State Of Comics

It’s really sad that the comics industry is still a “niche” market. The business has never had a better time, in terms of great stories and imaginative writers. Now, more than ever, comics are writer-driven. Gone are the days when comics would be popular because of the hot new [...]

After a little shopping around, I’ve setup the home and pest inspections for this Saturday at 9 AM. Hopefully, they’ll find nothing wrong with the house. Next up is setting up the mortgage. I’m probably going to go with Cendant, but need to get some good quotes and Good Faith Estimates from [...]

Green Arrow: Quiver by Kevin Smith, Ande Parks, and Guy Major

“Hero coming back from the dead” type of stories are lame. They did that with Jean Grey, they did that with Superman, and they did it to whole other bunch of characters that it just gets plain boring. When somebody dies in the [...]

Tornadoes and Cruises
It’s always depressing to come back to work after having a three-day weekend (I took Friday off). Hopefully, nobody will bother me too much today. I’m just not in the mood for it.
A tornado passed through our area yesterday. Thankfully, it wasn’t really in our immediate vicinity and the tornado [...]

Pittsburgh Comicon

Had a good time today at the Pittsburgh Comicon. Quite an experience and sight to see….. more strange folks than the Cantina on Tatooine. We actually saw a stormtrooper and a guy dressed as Green Lantern. Besides the comics folks, some Playboy Playmates (like Petra Verkaik) also had booths set-up there…. [...]

End of an E-heads Era

Inq7.net has a story regarding the replacement of Eraserheads lead singer and rhythm guitarist Ely Buendia by Fatal Posporos’ Kris Gorra (a woman!). The E-heads are my second favorite OPM band (next to Parokya Ni Edgar) and this will be the end of an era. Will this mean that [...]

The Counter-Offer and The Carpenters
We called up several people last night and got a fairly unanimous opinion that the deal we’re getting is almost the same as what we originally offered. We’ll meet up with our realtor tonight and go over the counter-offer. If it looks good, we’ll sign it and get the [...]

The House-Hunt Saga Continues…
Our agent was able to speak with the sellers and as expected, they counter-offered. The counter offer is not bad though, basically they’re asking for $3,000 more than our offer, but in return, they’re going to chip in $3000 (possibly more) towards the closing costs. Right now, that seems like [...]
