    Watching Watchmen 6:21 am-

    So me, my brother, and my dad are going to go see the Watchmen movie today. I have not been holding my breath. In fact I have been setting myself up for a major disappointment in what has been called an unfilmable comic book. There are two things that make me want to have hope that the movie will be good.

    1. the movie is set in the 80’s like the comic book
    2. the Rorschach character looks to be on the money

    Things I don’t like include the fact that the ending has been neutered. Because of 9/11 we can’t go showing New York City destroyed by a fake alien invasion. Why is it we have become such huge pussies since 9/11? Jesus it’s  a movie people. Bunch of god damn pussies. Also a minor nitpick but they wouldn’t let any of the good characters smoke. It’s perfectly fine for some of the bad guys to smoke. But not good guys. More pussy bullshit.

    And right now I’m saying that I will have a huge heart attack if Doctor Manhattan does not explode Rorschach into a mist of blood. Some things just have to be the same. Rorschach buying it is one of those things that to my mind can not be changed. Letting him survive would just be the final insult in the pussifcation of the movie. Sorry if I just spoiled the story to a twenty year old comic book.

    With any luck the movie will be really good and my setting myself up for it to fail will pay big when it does not suck.

    So I collect comic books. Now I am old fashion enough that I prefer to read the real thing. I like to hold it and smell the paper. So I can’t download all of the comics I want to read. I have to go to a comic book store to get them. Now having worked so far in the hotel business for over 15 years (maybe 20, I’ve lost count) I have some strange ideas about the costumer always being right.

    These strange ideas are what put me in my current situation. Basically I had a disagreement with the people at Tomorrow is Yesterday about a comic book I asked them to hold for me. Now they felt “holding a book” means that I’m obligated to pay for the book. They stuck to this belief and I paid for the comic and told them to stop pulling the comics I wanted. I never returned to that store. So I had to either find a local comic book store or an online comic book store. I went with the local comic book store.

    Cancel all of my subscriptions. I wanted to support a local comic shop. But I can’t do business with an establishment that misses comics that I’ve asked for them to pull. I went to Tomorrow is Yesterday for over 15 years and they never once missed an issue. Perhaps it’s my fault for not coming in frequently? But I don’t think so. It’s not my job to babysit the comic shop owner. So thanks for trying. But I’ve got to go some where were I always get the comics I ask for. No matter if I come in once a week or every three months. It shouldn’t matter.

    Blah blah.

    First of all, I stopped pulling your comics because YOU didn’t bother coming in for over 6 months last year. The comics that are missing are missing because of YOUR fault, not mine.

    Second of all, you just stuck me with several books by Warren Ellis, because, and I quote “I want EVERYTHING that ellis puts out”

    So canceling your subscriptions is not a problem. Maybe the next time you make a commitment to any establishment, you should be more responsible in showing up on a timely fashion. You are well aware after “15 years” with Tomorrow is Yesterday that you accumulate new books on an almost weekly basis. I am not your babysitter, and it’s not my responsibility to have to remind you on a monthly, or bi-monthly basis to pick up your comics. Especially when it was a problem even getting ahold of you last year because YOU failed to keep me updated on ways to contact you.

    And it shouldn’t matter if I sit on an expense for 3 months?? Ok, granted, but you were M.I.A. last year for over 6 MONTHS. Take responsibility for your shortcomings.

    So to recap, the books that are missing are YOUR fault, not mine. 100 bullets 91 to 93 WERE in your box for many months, but luckily, I was able to unload them to an actual buyer when you were unable to be reached.

    Good luck with future endeavors, and I would appreciate you never shopping in my store again.

    Take care,
    Beloit Comic Store Owner

    Movie Galactus 4:45 am-

    Tim Story must die. It’s that time of again when the Barbershop director unleashes a new Fantastic Four movie on the world. I’m getting ahead of myself. First things first. This has me all pissed off. And here is the important part:

    A storm cloud.

    Stop right there. Fuck them. Galactus is the devourer of worlds goddamn it. The first picture is a cloud. The second picture is Galactus The Devourer of Worlds.

    A Cloud Galactus

    The Big G is not a fucking cloud. End of story. Tell this to that piece of fuck Tim “Barbershop” Story. Below is what Tim “Taxi” Story thinks Galactus should look like:

    GahLakTus

    So what we have here is proof that some comic books should not be made into movies. I’m glad I stuck to my guns and did not go and see this movie. I won’t watch it on dvd either. I’ll just dream of Fantastic Four movies that could have been.

    At least Tim Story can’t fuck up the comic books themselves. Do yourself a favor and just go and buy this below.

    44 years of the Fantastic Four on DVD!

    You can thank me later for saving you from the second Tim Story Fantastic Four movie.

    Watchmen. I’m currently reading this again. I had to buy another copy because my first trade got water damaged when I moved the last time. One of the best comic books of all time.

    Watchmen

    I want to get the Absolute Edition one of these days. The idea of a movie scares me in the same way I’m scared of the Fantastic Four movies.

    Drunk and in a mood. These two pages from Cerebus issue 66 sums it up pretty good:

    Issue 66 » Page 3 Issue 66 » Page 4

    What I wanted was out of the hotel. Now that I got what I wanted I’m unhappy. Such is life.

    Ever wonder what superhero you are? If so give the “Which Superhero are you?” quiz a shot. My results below:

    You are Green Lantern

    Green Lantern
    90%
    Hulk
    60%
    Spider-Man
    60%
    Catwoman
    50%
    The Flash
    40%
    Batman
    35%
    Robin
    30%
    Wonder Woman
    30%
    Iron Man
    30%
    Supergirl
    20%
    Superman
    20%
    Hot-headed. You have strong
    will power and a good imagination.
    Click here to take the "Which Superhero are you?" quiz…

    The results are a little weird. Catwoman 50%, Wonder Woman 30%, and Supergirl 20%? I think answering no to the Do you ever wear a pushup bra? question should have eliminated those ladies from my results. That’s the way it goes.
