Seems like yesterday..

Wizard's website has James Robinson's first interview about his upcoming gig on Superman.
My enthusiasm for what he and Geoff Johns have in store for us continues unabated.

You're invincible!

Who knew Superman riding a red dinosaur would someday be declared so universally awesome?

I did.
That's why when the incredible Jon Morris says he will draw something for you, you have to swing for the fences and ask him to draw Superman riding Jack Kirby's Devil Dinosaur.
And that's just what I did last year.

So, on Monday I told you about this awesome post that Thomas at Say It Backwards had put up about the greatest thing ever purchased for $3.
Well, apparently the person responsible for a blog I love, Super Punch, stopped by in time to catch it.
I'm to understand it started making it's way around to other blogs as well as making a monumentous appearance on another site I love, Neatorama.
Then thanks to Neatorama, it managed to find it's way to Newsarama's blog!
Even though the Newsarama one didn't link back here or anything, it was still really exciting to think that I helped something get to that point.
And I've had a ton of new traffic here today thanks to the ones that did "via" Hip Today.
Maybe some of them will even visit again someday!

See Thomas, I told you SIB was awesome. Aren't you glad you came back to us?
Impossibles continue to be conquered!

You're staring at me..

It is at times like these that I feel it is important for me (and everyone else) to remember that things could be worse and there is still a universal power that moves with us and around us and flows through us...

And is completely fucking awesome!
I know everyone in the world has already seen that picture, but it is comforting.
Also, in my fantasy world, they are playing a Queen song.
A Queen song about Star Wars.
It's a wonderful fantasy.

I think they do a fantastic job of capturing my own world view at the moment.

Can't you see my world is fallin' apart?

I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I think this looks awesome.
And the plans that accompany it?
Also awesome.
To me.
I'm just one dude though.
One dude who says "awesome" more than most.

You think you know what you're doing..

There was a point not so very long ago that I felt like I was ready to give up on music. Not just on pursuing it in some fashion, but I was just kinda sick of it all.
Sick of listening to it.
Sick of old stuff I liked.
Sick of trying to listen to new stuff.
I was just sick of music.
I didn't want to listen to it at work. I didn't want to listen to it in the car.
Sick of it.

I've gotten over it though, and I'm glad that I have.

That wasn't Gun Men..
