I've got one of those! It even has it's own leather belt case. It looks like a scabbard.

(By the way, excellent mise en scene for that olde site. Remember spinning banners, flash pots, sparkles and dithering? Or, this site under construction? Damn. I miss the old myspace.)


Speaking of scabbards, it's proper to protect ones sliding ruler from scabs, crabs, and fancy prancers.

Always use protection.

Cheers!

Here's one for you:

Sony Playstation is following along the lines of Netflix (which released their own original content: Orange Is The New Black) which is to say, stepping outside of the cablebox, with a new series named Powers.

Here is their new premier. You might have to sign in due to gore and adult language. I haven't seen any boobies yet. But there may be hope for such a thing.

It is up to you to decide if this has mewwit. I think I will follow this thing.

I'll probably keep up with it as well. It seems intriguing.

Yes, it has. However, much like the "Star Wars"/"Cops" mash-up, "Troopers", it is worth repeating.

Hmmm...

Big Brother is listening to you. Thank goodness I still use cathode ray tubes.

This calls for a shot of Big Brother.

Confession: I never really read comic books. I have read comic books, but I was never a comic book guy. I think that a Venn Diagram of D&D players and comic book readers would pretty much, almost overlap. I think that I was the only person in my D&D group, in my younger days, that never read comics. In fact, when it came to play the game Champions, I had a very hard time making up a superhero character. Back them, the only contemporary superhero movie was the Christopher Reeve Superman and the only shows were the Adam West Batman and the Spiderman shorts on the Electric Company.
I had 3 Star Wars comic books that someone gave me for a birthday and a giant Battlestar Gallactica but that was about it. Later, I bought some true crime comics, that i ended up giving away one time while moving.
ONe time, at a bar, a nerd friend insisted that I just had to read the Watchmen. I said that I wasn't a comicbook reader, but he insisited and loaned me his loaner copy. I still haven't finished it. I saw and enjoyed the movie. But I just couldn't get into it.

Whatevs.

Well,

if we're going to be honest here, I used to read the comic books down at the little store on this little island in the river, and it was called (beliebe it or not) Wally's.

In there, it was indeed a world of wonder. Gubment cheese, canned chicken and also pork, stewed in their respective gelatine (glutenous) jellies in tin cans with black ink printed across the surfaces to indicate what lay hidden inside.

Candy, oh, the candy. Squirrel nut zippers, Mary Janes (the sugar, not the weed) red licorice coins (two for the penny, but try to buy on and ask for change, lest you get a head smack) laffy taffy, weird sugar dots on rolls of waxed paper (always chewed paper, yum) and mint juleps: taffy in green wax paper, not the southern DRINK. Penny candy.

However, when my dad brought us down theyah in his rusted and trusted Chevy Impala (you could see the road beneath the wooden planks in the foot wells in the rear seating arena)

...well, I would plant my arse down beneath the stand that held them comix. Up above, beyond the grasp of wee ones, were the curious ones that only older males could reach. Only the top part of each title could be read, for the holder kept hidden what them ladies on each cover could not.

All in full view of the owner, Wally, of course.

My dad and him would chat for an hour or so (Dad! Let's go! Dad! I have to use the bathroom! Dad! You said only a few minutes! Mom's gonna get mad!)

So I would read. My sisters would fall asleep on the floor by the canned peas and Zarex purple corn syrup soft drink concentrate.

But, I the only things available, other than the manly mags, were these:

Richie Rich.

Little Lotta.

Casper The Ghost.

Archie.

Jughead.



There you have it.


None of us were as cool as P was.


He will be missed, indeed.

New from Haz-Bro, its the Mr. Lahey action figure with kung-fu liquor grip and genuine puke stained shirt! You can make him move, stumble around and drink more, or you can crash and roll his Ford LTD (sold separately, liquor not included) while chasing RIcky and Julian around the new Sunnyvale Play Set (sold separately, hash driveway not included)
