I cannot stop listening to "The All Seeing Eye" by Alustrium.  That song is about 9 minutes of awesomeness.  My favorite portion of the song is from 6:33- 8:10.  Hell, that whole album is killer.  I saw them live once and they were incredible.  I definitely need to check out their new album.

I'm now wondering if it was a good or bad thing that, say, the A button on the Genesis controller didn't have to be pressed down as far as the C button.  Probably because you had to stretch your thumb a bit more for the A button, the "action" felt even despite the varied button heights. 

I remember liking the Genesis controller. 

Ergonomics is interesting.

Of the 3 starters, my favorite is definitely Rowlet.  

EDIT: and as long as I have tons of haircut and dress-up options for the girl character like in X/Y, I'll be happy.  Playing dress-up and making those 10 second movies in X/Y was awesome.

Oh, and for version I'd pick Sun because I'm a morning person and orange is my favorite color (especially sunrise orange.)

^^ Nice Gambit!

Thanks.  I love dressing up as Gambit.  I did that during Halloween when greeting trick-or-treaters and most of the neighborhood kids were all, "YOU'RE GAMBIT!!!!!"  I might need a new costume, though.  For variety.  The only costumes I currently have are Gambit, my Ghostbuster overalls, and my Lando Calrissian outfit.  Lando is a tough one since I actually need a month or two to grow out the hair and moustache before I wear the costume.  

And since her birthday is also May 8 like mine- Happy Birthday Katniss Everdeen.  (Seriously, chapter 2 of the first Hunger Games book explicitly says Katniss' birthday is May 8.)

As for cake batter ice cream, when I was in grad school, there was an ice cream place not far from me that had the best cake batter ice cream.  The place closed down after I graduated, though.   Best dessert, though, is easily the brownie bottom sundae.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBloDahU2nE  I tend to stay away from those since I'm super health conscious, but every once in a blue moon... so decadent.

Aww heck... https://www.facebook.com/rivercitycomics/photos/a.1491324534451710.1073741829.1481792145404949/1684929151757913/?type=3&theater

It's me in my Gambit costume at my last FCBD stop.

Anyway, I just finished reading all my FCBD freebies and organizing goodie bags for the nephews.  There was a lot of great stuff, but my favorite freebie was easily Love and Rockets.

I'll be spending my birthday today reading through my Free Comic Book Day haul. 

So far, my favorite freebie has been the Love and Rockets freebie.

Ever since a run-down movie theater near me recently renovated into a recliner theater with good recliners, I refuse to see a movie in the theater any other way.  No recliner= no Dincrest in the theater.

Happy Free Comic Book Day everyone!  So who went out?  I sure did.  This has been my favorite FCBD ever!  I had so much fun being Gambit for a day and, of course, got tons of sweet comic books at even sweeter prices! Free Comic Book Day is the best day of the year!

And like I said earlier, it always falls close to my birthday (May 8) so I like to celebrate my b-day on FCBD.

I started my journey at Panther Comics; it's a new store that opened up last year and I'd never been there. With All Things Fun! having closed its doors, I feel like Panther fills its void amazingly. Apparently, I was the first costumer to enter their store today which was cool. I'll definitely have to come back to that store.

I then moseyed on over to Frankenstein Comics. A little bit of a hike, but it's close to my preferred bicycle shop and its a classic fixture in the south Jersey comic book scene. I found some really cool classic stuff that I didn't even know existed!

My third stop was Stormwatch Comics, which had the biggest crowd. They (and my fourth stop) had the FCBD issue I most wanted (I ALWAYS look forward to ASPEN COMICS FCBD issue). I always enjoy trolling their shelves for hidden gems. I could do that all day. And hidden gems were certainly found.

My final stop was River City Comics. I walk into that store and everyone- the staff, the patrons, the FCBD special guests, all cheered and gave me a superhero's welcome. When the staff wanted to snap a photo of me, a patron immediately said, "Yo man, you gotta have cards! I have a deck in my car!" So he runs out and back with a deck of cards and loans me the aces to pose with. That was so cool! Getting some funky comics signed by one of the Bongo Comics Simpsons writers was great too. This is another store that always seems to have hidden gems in the dollar boxes I don't know I want till I find them.

But here's what made this year's FCBD so much fun for me. I wasn't just snagging stuff for myself. Because there were so many amazing killer deals in all the stores, I also snagged a whole bunch of comics for my "nephews." I use the quotation marks because while two of the nephews are family (my cousin's kids) the other nephews are the sons of close family friends. The "nephews" range in age from 6-12 so of course I gotta hook 'em up with some FCBD loot.

I also got some cool ideas of things I could get my mom for her birthday. After all, she's the lady who got me into Star Wars and I, in turn, introduced her to A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) and she's more into it than I am.

EDIT: You know what's crazy, though? None of my comic book friends wanted to come out with me to FCBD, much less in costumes. When I happily said I was going to do that, they looked at me like an embarrassment. I mean, what the fuck? Where's your sense of fun? Halloween is my favorite holiday because I get to dress up so any reason to dress up works for me... and FCBD is a great reason to go out dressed up in a costume.

My favorite scene from FFXIII is still when Hope mumbles, "mom?!" in his sleep and Lightning quietly sighs, "Not by a longshot, kid."

I need to see those new Power Ranger suits in motion.  My kneejerk reaction is similar to everyone elses- they look bulky and clunky, like medieval knight armor, and don't look like they have enough articulation for those really intense and/or high-flying martial arts moves that require freedom of movement.  Hence why traditional martial arts uniforms are kinda loose so movement isn't restricted.

And especially with the Internet age where stuff can spread online and you have little legal recourse to fight it.  No matter what country you live in, high school can be rough... unless you're part of that clique at the top of the pecking order.  But then, if you peak in high school, the rest of your life is all downhill from there.  Which is why I'm glad I had a better time of my life in my 30s than I did in my teens and 20s.  I turn 38 tomorrow, in two years I will be 40 and fabulous. 

The grass isn't always greener and paradise comes at a price. 

I know someone mentioned secret missables as a pet peeve.  I still remember back in the PSOne era of gaming when several RPGs would have secrets so obscure, there was no way of finding them unless you bought the strategy guide.  Talk about a cash grab.

and the kid who
logically said that a hologram can't become a junkie.

Through luck I managed to snag one of these a few days after the event. I havent read the stormlight archive yet but this is a cool book. Really good quality


I hope this gets an e-book version.  I'd love that for my Kindle.  There's so much to keep track of in that series, that the pocket companion would be sweet.

I said it earlier that I didn't like the piston style shoulder buttons on the GC controller.  I fought with those.  I liked the Dreamcast controller's shoulder buttons though.
