Humpday Hubbabaloo — 05/14

May 14, 2008

Went to the Angels/White Sox game last night — my Angels won. It was turning quite the pitchers duel, at least until the eighth inning when my Angels scored two runs. My Angels are back in first place — at least by half a game at the time of this post. Apparently, last night was the only night of the week that they weren’t giving away free swag at the game — Monday night they were giving away Torii Hunter bobbleheads, tonight they’re giving away Angels beanies, and tomorrow night they’re giving away retro-style caps from 1971. But, I’ll take a “W” over free swag any night. John Lackey is expected to return to the mound tonight after having been on the DL since the beginning of the season. This is a good thing, my two fantasy baseball teams could use his arm.

There are a handful of comics that I want to pick up today. They include:

  • SERENITY BETTER DAYS #3
  • BATMAN #676 RIP
  • TRUE STORY SWEAR TO GOD #11
  • ALL NEW IRON MANUAL
  • AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #559
  • GUARDIANS OF GALAXY #1
  • SECRET INVASION FANTASTIC FOUR #1
  • CTHULHU TALES #2
  • EVERYBODYS DEAD #3
  • NORTH WIND #5
  • PROJECT SUPERPOWERS #3
  • STAR TREK ALIEN SPOTLIGHT TP
  • WARHAMMER CONDEMNED BY FIRE #1
  • ZORRO #3

Over the last couple of days I’ve had some great artwork come in on the various projects that I’m working on including covers and interior pages. I’m anxious to show some of it off, but it’s probably in the best interest to hold steady a bit and unleash it all when the time is right to promote said projects. But it’s very cool to see artwork based on your words show up in your email inbox.

Last Thursday was the last episode of the seventh and final season of Scrubs on NBC — and in tradition of treating the show like the ugly red-headed stepchild, NBC aired the episodes out of order and finished with what many consider the weakest episode so far. Oh, well… Scrubs will be returning next mid-season on ABC.

And, speaking of Scrubs, my good friend David had a nifty surprise for me when we met to catch Speed Racer last Saturday, a Scrubs directors chair…

Lately I’ve had the urge to play building simulation games and have been tinkering around with my old copies of Roller Coaster Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon. I might have to go out and pick up something new and give it whirl. But, I shouldn’t be tinkering with or whirling any games right now — I’ve got writing to do.

One more week until Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull!
