And so it begins...

Here I go. I've been considering starting a blog like this ever since I started reading the serious intellectual discussions at www.overgrownboyscout.blogspot.com. (hope you don't mind the name-drop.) Maybe I'm ripping him off. Oh well, isn't that what the internet's all about?

Speaking of which, what is this all about? Well, it's pretty selfish, really. I like to talk about things that I think are important: comics, cartoons, movies, television, toys, music...those are the big ones. I'll probably shy away from personal life.

So here's a selfish and self-indulgent list of favorites:

Comics: JLA, JSA, Walking Dead, Godland, Green Lantern, Batman, Spider-Man, Madman, Booster Gold, Black Adam, vintage EC horror and Sci-Fi, many others.

Cartoons: the 80's rule!--G.I.Joe, Transformers, He-Man, Thundercats, Blackstar, Wheeled Warriors, Voltron, Superfriends/SuperPowers, Inhumanoids, etc.

Movies: Star Wars (I prefer the OT, but I enjoy the PT), Star Trek, anything by Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, Umberto Lenzi, Mario Bava, cheap horror/sci-fi flicks from any time, Hammer horror, Marx Bros.

TV: Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Star Trek (most of it, never got into Voyager), Buck Rogers, Torchwood, Heroes, anything with Gordon Ramsay, cooking shows, 80's sitcoms, Family Guy, The Office, The Big Bang Theory.

Toys: Anything 80's--see the "cartoon" list above. Also Star Wars, Doctor Who, Justice League Unlimited, and DC Direct. New G.I. Joes rock!

Okay, this is already too long. Discussing music would take all night. I can pretty much listen to anything if I'm in the mood for it. I collect records of all types. Pretty much anything other than post-Garth Brooks country.

Live Long and Prosper
