For the first time ever I have won my Yahoo Fantasy Football league. The team, if you'd like to see it, is here:

And the playoff map is here:

Sure, it's a free league with no prize, but it still feels good...

Christmas Decorations

Every year a strange Christmas decoration pops up at my house. This is what it looks like:

I know. It looks like lingerie, right? Specifically, lingerie that I bought my wife years ago.

But every year she digs it out and hangs it up on the outside of the closet because I guess it's a decoration now. She never wears it.

I thought it was funny so I took a picture. She wanted to know what I was doing. I told her I was gonna blog about it.

Well, Christmas night the old decoration became lingerie again. I guess she thought that was gonna stop me from posting this blog.

Think again, honey.

Avatar: The Controversy

To whoever I was talking to about Cameron maybe ripping off Avatar...

Check it out here


You know, it's funny how some things really mean Christmas to you. I still collect comic books, but every time I see the issues above I remember one year from Christmas that both of those were in my stocking.

One was a pretty crappy issue--I didn't know it at the time, because at 13 years old any Spidey was great--and the other was a great issue. You can probably guess which one sucks--I'm looking at you, Stilt Man.

But if I remember next year I'll do like my top ten best Christmas presents I ever received. (not counting the BJs because let's face it, you couldn't handle those pictures)

Merry Christmas!
(and a nod to the page I stole one of these images from--man, it brings back some great comic book memories...)

Shovelling snow

We got about 18 inches of snow yesterday. I went out last night and cleared out the truck so I could get out for an emergency slurpee.

And I thought, as I created giant walls of snow around my mailbox: "This would be so much easier if I had one of those big military flame throwers like they had in 'Them'".

Why can't I go down to Lowe's and buy one of those puppies?

Avatar thoughts(non spoiler)

It takes a lot to get me excited to see a new movie. Obviously, a new James Cameron movie is enough.

The previews didn't look great to me. Which was fine--I needed something to lower my expectations.

Anyway, went to the theater--tickets were $14.50 apiece. Apparently this new XD experience is a big thing or something. The theater wasn't that crowded--I expected more people to come out for the midnight showing.

So here it is: The movie's pretty good. Visually amazing but I'm not sure how it'll translate in 2D.

My problems are that it's not the greatest story in the world. It's Dances With Wolves meets Return of the Jedi(the Ewok part).

No memorable lines. Some stupid names. (the mineral they're mining is called unobtainium...seriously). And scantily-clad aliens which will have you scanning to see if they have nipples or not. (they do)

I'd say it's definitely not close to Cameron's best movie, but...

I just hope this gets the monkey off his back so he makes another flick without waiting a decade.

Cool Comic Cover

Gotta note this. It's a variant cover to an X-force issue. And if you don't know what it's an homage to, shame on you.

But go here to see it:

That Hunting Humans 2

A couple people had asked me whether I had done any more on HH2, the script.

The answer is, not really. I had about 35 pages--only about 25 sequential, then 10 with various conversations, notes, and then the ending.

But here it is with a few more than I last posted. So if you're interested, check it out. It's still early-draft stuff, but you might like it.
