Friday Forgetfulness: I review some comics and rant about my life


This has been a fairly busy week. I had a short essay due and a test on Wednesday, followed by the release of the Next Destinies Pokemon card set. Last night I went with some friends to see the 3D release of Phantom Menace ( it was as bad as ever but was a lot prettier). This leaves me with today to catch up on my nerd blogging duties and by the power of Grayskull, I will! (personal crisis, I just referenced He-Man).

The scan sucks because
Mewtwo is so shiny.
Comics- I picked up Animal Man #6, Action Comics #6, Justice League #6, and Wolverine and the X-Men #6. Look later tonight or maybe tomorrow for my standard review article.

Pokemon Cards- Next Destinies set came out. The release was a fairly big deal due to the re-emergence of ultra rare EX cards. I was lucky enough to pull a few including a beautiful full-art Mewtwo (pictured).

Nuzlocke- I haven't played much in the past week, but I have been working on my next chapter of the Nuzlocke-Noir (check the pages bar for a link).

Check it out, it's  cyberpunk
Hunter S. Thompson
Phantom Menace- I saw Phantom Menace in 3D last night in the local Cinemark's faux I-MAX theater. It was a lot of fun, but sadly George Lucas did not choose to kill of Jar Jar Binks in the edited version,  I just have to keep pretending he isn't there. The visuals were impeccable and it is certainly worth seeing if you love Star Wars, I haven't seen it, or feel like spending $11  on a film that was released 13 years ago. If you own it on DVD or Blu-Ray I would suggest watching it at home instead of trekking out to the theater.

 Graphic Novels and Books- Remember those nifty little reviews I used to do? Me neither. It has been a few weeks since I wrote a full review on anything, but I haven't stopped reading. I am currently reading through "Transmetropolitan", courtesy of my friend Rima, and Michael Chabon's well known "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay", courtesy of my girlfriend Erin. I plan on putting some more reviews up in the near future.
