Woo! I'm remembering to blog again.
I went to see the SHAZAM movie and I'm gonna tell ya, it's my favorite DC movie of all time right now. It was a fun movie.... so much fun. I laughed more at this movie than any super hero movie ever. I mean hard gufhawing laughter. A friend asked it it was worth seeing in the theater and I said it was worth seeing twice in the theater. If my schedule wasn't so tight for the next two weeks I would figure out a time to go back and see it again.
I like the way they are following some of the new storylines from recent years that I'm not as familiar with. I know the character well but it's all fresh and new to me at the same time. I also like the way they are portraying the villains in this version too.
I've told you enough without actually giving anything away. Go have some fun and see this movie.
I've got the DC UNIVERSE right after it became available. I've actually have had a little more time to explore it a bit. Yesterday and today I've gotten into the Rebirth Batman series... and gotten a bit engrossed in it. Couldn't put it down... although it's on the computer screen and I actually couldn't hold it to begin with. I've gotten more accustomed to reading digital copies of comics lately I have. I probably read more digital versions of comics than print now.
When I first got DC UNIVERSE it sortof upset me that there weren't more of their comics there but then I realized... if they were I didn't have time to read them all at once. So they keep adding and I keep finding something more to read.
All I know is after reading this rebirth first five issues that I want to check out more. I've been more into independent comics over the last few years but recently because of this may be getting back into DC a little more.
I totally forgot about this blog page that I had.... don't I have enough to do already? Probably but I may actually try to do some more blogging here and there .... if I remember... TIME! Time has no meaning to one such as I.... which might be the reason I keep burning my biscuits... Check out the Rosco Web Series that the Landon and myself are doing on the YouTubes.
PENSACON MEMORIES ONE:
Just got back from Pensacon 2017 and it was awesome. It's like a nerd family reunion with all my nerd friends. So many of us make this convention every year. So , I just remember I have a blog and should be using it.
So , I'm gonna post some memories in me blog but just concentrate on one at a time... then the others will come later.
First day of Pensacon. A bunch of us are eating breakfast at the big table like we do every year. It's breakfast time and the host hotel has a cool restaurant in the hotel. We're all eating there when in walks David Bradley. That's right , Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Strain, An Adventure in Space & Time (Doctor Who special). That David Bradley. He walks over and talks to Mike Ensley (the guy who started Pensacon) and then sits at the table behind us. It's neat and cool just to be eating a table away from a cool nice guy like that but then we all get up and start leaving when I pick up my big furry horned puppet, Rosco. I carry this puppet to shows and cons and he's been to every Pensacon. David sees him and points saying, "That's brilliant." So I step over and we talk about the puppet. He asks if I'm doing a show over the weekend and I tell him no that the puppet just helps in selling my comics and art and I also do interviews with him. We talk about the An Adventure in Time & Space show he did. I thank him and go about my way.
Later that day I'm waiting while the Slyvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred set up so I can interview them when David walks up. He asks the volunteer next to me if she's met the Puppet. He tells her that he had breakfast with the puppet and that the puppet ate all his food. We have a good laugh and he goes on about his way.
So who do I run into on my way out of breakfast the next day? That's right , it's David again and yes I do have the puppet. He laughs and says, " I just keep running into you and this puppet, don't I." And yes, the puppet and myself ran into David for just about every breakfast. Even though Monday morning Rosco the puppet was packed in the car for the ride home I did have my writing pen with me and the writing pen is a snowman puppet. So at least I had a puppet of some sort when I ran into David again as I was leaving.
Stay tooned for more Pensacon Memories coming later I tells ya and have a bubbatastic day.
Also, here's a shout out to one of my BubbaWorld Comix sponsors. Be sure to check them out.
There is a new website yall should check out. It's for the LOUISVILLE TRADING CO. Antique Flea Mall. It's a cool place. The website is still tweeking some pages but should be running fully by the end of the week. They have a bit of everything in there, old comics, old books, vinyl records, antiques and some art too. If you're in or are near Louisville, MS then go by and check it out. There's even a map on the homepage.
Have a Bubbatastic Day.
