7818 – I love old comic books.

The damned condo commission called my current landlord without asking me. I wasn’t planning on giving him any info unless success was assured, and now LL knows that I’m shopping around. That doesn’t help me much when I’m on a month to month lease, because he could already decide to jack the rent or boot me with only 30 days notice… with season coming I don’t need to give him any more incentive than he might already have.

I told him it was an investment property, (which is true, except that if things work out, I’ll also live there.)
The grounds here are a mess, and he said that he’d knock off whatever he was giving the other guy from my rent if I maintain the place. That’s doable… a little raking and hosing once a week shouldn’t be that much of a hassle.

I imagine that means he’ll be doing some work on the building, if he’s planning on renting the other ones out… considering that they’ve been pretty much empty since the guy bought the place.

I don’t know what the deal is with this LL… he still hasn’t cashed my October Rent check. Must be nice to be so wealthy that you can just blow off hundreds of dollars for weeks (sometimes months) on end without giving it a second thought.

I’ve never liked condo commandos, and this nonsense is just confirming my presuppositions.

Knit zombies reenact Dawn of the Dead


The Library has a surprisingly nice collection of graphic novels / hardbound comics.

Have some lovely scenes from the good ol’ days of comics:

Green lantern gets sick of his favorite Zombie returning *yet again*, so he throws him to the moon. I seem to recall Superman exiling him to the moon at one point, too (wearing supe’s cape, and playing at flying in the lower gravity)… who knows how he keeps finding his way back?

BAD ZOMBIE! NO WALKING THE EARTH! NEVER!

Green Lantern also pursues balloons that are really gangsters.

He got a lift from the Man in the Moon’s rocket.
(On the way back from exiling Grundy, perhaps?)


Al Pratt, the Original Atom turns into a sponge.


I bet he borrows lots of money from Wildcat, too.


Psycho Pirate influences a lot of feelings…

Closeup on the different mood-vibes.


For ambition… this guy looks like sort of palooka-ish.
bottom fang and unshaven…I don’t know.
I picture ambition as being a brooks brother’s suit and a power tie.


See, now I imagine anger as being the one that shows teeth.
Or maybe yelling?
Or Something that says “Grrr!”?


I like this one… you can tell he regrets what he found out.


There we go! Green-eyed monster!
He looks rather stern.


Pride? He doesn’t look too proud.
It’d be a good expression for “hangdog”.


Humility? A lack of false pride? Humble?
I’m not sure how manipulating this would cause anything.


Conceit, Despair, and Fear.
Fear looks more like anger.
Despair and Conceit seem right.


Aww.. lumping Love in with hate and greed?
Greed seems awfully smug.



Holy Crud… It’s the Hulk!!


And He’s Violating some copyright issues!

They rip off Swamp thing/Man thing that same issue, too. Glob?


My all-time favorite… Hawkman breaks down and decides that he’s a thermometer. The first thought that went through my mind… “Oral or Rectal?”

I know what the trouble is!
I’m not myself! I’m something ELSE!
I’M A THERMOMETER!
HA HA Ha OH- HA HA HA HA!
That’s what I am— a thermometer!
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA


Is there some kind of rule that anyone portraying a high school sports team member must have a Red and White Varsity jacket? I see red and white varsity jackets in movies all of the time. I wonder if there’s some statistic as to the most popular school colors.



Moment of Lyric: (from the I Shot Andy Warhol soundtrack)

Sunshine came softly through my window today
I could have tripped out easy but I’ve changed my ways.
It’ll take time I know it, but in a while…
You’re gonna be mine and I know it, we’ll do it in style.

Cause I’ve made my mind up you’re going to be mine
I’ll tell you right now…
Any trick in the book, oh baby, that I can find.
Everybody’s hustling just to have a little scene.
When I say we’ll be cool, well, I think that, you know what I mean.
We stood on a beach at sunset, do you remember when…
I know a beach where baby, it never ends.

When you’ve made your mind up forever to be mine.
I’ll pick up your hand and slowly, blow your little mind.
Cause I’ve made my mind up you’re going to be mine
I’ll tell you right now…
Any trick in the book, oh baby, that I can find

Superman or Green Lantern ain’t got nothin’ on me.
I can make like a turtle and dive for pearls in the sea
You can just sit there thinkin’, on your velvet throne
About all the rainbows you can have for your own.

When you’ve made your mind up forever to be mine.

I’ll tell you right now…
I’ll pick up your hand and slowly, blow your little mind.

When you’ve made your mind up forever to be mine.
I’ll pick up your hand and slowly, blow your little mind.

I’ll tell you right now…
