a little bit of everything

tomorrow very early in the morning i’m going to go and get some wisdom teeth removed and a few cavities filled. one of the wisdom teeth is impacted which should be a whole lot of fun. i can’t wait. i’ll likely be in pain for a couple days afterwards which i’m also really looking forward too. it’s the start to a great week! anyhoo, i don’t talk about comics, movies and music enough…

music– i’m really in to sufjan stevens right now. i can’t get his song chicago out of my head. i’ve got to thank my friend jeff denton for introducing me to him.

movies– saw snakes on a plane this weekend and it was every bit as bad as i hoped it would be. i was hysterical. now i’m ready for the fall crop of films, which are usually a big breath of fresh air after the ridiculous and over-the-top summer ones.

comics– my new favorite web comic is zip and li’l bit by trade loeffler. the story is just getting started but i already love it. the art is amazing (love his linework) and there are plenty of sheep. lots of sheep is always a good reason to read a comic.

on the paper side of things, i’m really into the x-men books again after suffering through many, many bad issues (except astonishing of course). mike carey and chris bachalo are a big part of my recovering interest but ed brubaker and billy tan are doing an awesome job as well. and, it’s not really x-men related, but everybody who’s into superhero comics should check out nextwave by warren ellis and stuart immonen. it’s absurdedly awesome.

speaking of x-men, i created a new x-character! she’s got magical mutant pixie powers and there’s even an ‘x’ in her name! i call her piXie! (i’m so lame..)

    Sufjan rocks too! I just got his album that’s the extra songs from the Illinois album, and it’s great too. Have you heard Sun Kil Moon? Another great band I’m really liking. Love the piXie character too. :)

      As the king of all pixies I wholeheartedly approve!

      Most pixies are lazy bad tempered and frankly smelly things. They have bad breath and drink too much cyder (Cornish cider, spelt with a y). The good ones tend to be overly chearful, wandering around in tiny shiny buttoned up boots…singing.

      (Well actually they all sing, annoyingly all the time, usually rude songs about inappropriate behaviour).

      Having a super hero pixie is very cool, albeit slightly worrying. You see pixies are naughty (not bad) and so like to play tricks. This invariably leads to a fight (a bit of a pixie hobby), which is why I worry about an X-Men pixie.

      Normally, I handle the fighting by granting most pixies spells such as:
      “Finding your keys, wherever they may be”
      “Flicking snot balls for large distances”
      “Gargling mouth wash without a sound”
      “making dull things look sparkly”
      “stopping nose bleeds”
      “Turning underpants inside out”

      BUT an X-Men Pixie will need something really special…

      …I will think hard about some more appropriate hero spells…

      Of course most pixies know how to create there own horrible spells.
      “Hiding Keys”
      “Flicking snot balls”
      “Gargling mouth wash with supersonic sound boom”
      “making sparkly things look dull”
      “causing nose bleeds”
      “wearing underpants inside out”

      So may be your Pixie will be OK with out me.
