And here is a picture of my sister, brother in-law and Jack White in New Orleans earlier today... I hate her.

Best Weekend... EVER!!!

My weekends are usually pretty awesome; weather and money permitting, of course. However, this weekend will definitely go on the books as one of the best ever! Friday started with perfect weather; mid 60's and tons of sun. When I got off from work, I took a scooter ride through the city and stopped by my favorite comic book store; Casablanca Comics. There, I found an issue of the Amazing Spider-man that I needed for my collection. When I went up to pay, I was told that I had a $5 back issue credit! After that, I went back home to meet my family to go out to our favorite Japanese buffet and then to see X-Men (which was just behind X2 as best in the franchise)! Not a bad Friday, eh?

Most of Saturday was spent yard-sailing around the city in which I found a pair of my favorite style of boot-cut jeans and a practically brand-new Sublime t-shirt. After lunch, the wife and I hopped on the scooter and went to the "Flea For All"; a great antique & collectible shop featuring three-stories of dusty goodness! There we found an antique tribal mask for our bedroom. After that, we tried out a new antique and collectible shop called "Uptown Antiques and Treasures" on Forest Ave. This place has a wide variety of collectibles, including my favorites; comics and toys! It was here that I had my biggest weekend score; a copy of the Amazing Spider-Man #20 featuring the 1st appearance of one of my favorite villains; The Scorpion, in Very Good+ condition for... wait for it... $30!!! Marked down from $50!!! Those of you in the know are aware of what an amazing deal this was. I also had the chance to meet and haggle with Charlie; the owner of this fine establishment and one helluva nice guy. There is no doubt I will be back for more! Later, we went out to dinner at The Portland Lobster Company, where we got to sit out on the water and enjoy the best Lobster Roll in Maine with fried clams and yummy beer! But wait, there's more; we finished off our evening by roaming the city and catching the hilarious new Jon Favreau flick; Chef.

Today, we spent nearly the entire day hanging out on the beach, playing Bocce Ball with the family and cooking burgers on the grill. Not too shabby of a weekend, huh?

3-D Monster; It's What All Fashionable Aussies Are Wearing...

I'm totally tooting my own horn here, but I am sooo excited that Urchin Books; a popular book/toy/clothing/art/video store in Marrickville, New South Wales Australia, is selling my very own 3-D Monster t-shirts! Actually, this is the second order as they sold out of the first one! Don't they look swell displayed on the rack?

The only sad part of this story is that I sell more shirts in Australia than in MY OWN FUCKING COUNTRY!!! So yeah, there's that. I guess I'll need to come up with a slick marketing campaign and some sort of catchphrase, huh? Perhaps something like this; "don't piss me off... BUY MY FUCKING SHIRTS!!" Yeah, I like the sound of that :-)

More Pics of The New Batmobile and Batman in COLOR!

We saw it from the back and covered in a tarp, Then the mid-section was seen but partly obscured by both smoke and some guy in a suit blocking the way. 

While said guy has now become the subject of the popular Sad Batman meme, two more unofficial photos have emerged via social media giving us a better look at the new look Batmobile to be seen in Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman".

The first is from Blue Realm Studios' Facebook Page and was posted almost two days ago, showcasing what is claimed to be a "model sculpture" for the top of the vehicle.
The second one popped up on Instagram earlier today, this one a front on ground level shot of the car and with the wheels and chassis attached. I'm not sure... a little too dune buggy-ish and not bat-ish enough. 

Finally, here's a good side-by-side comparison of Affleck's Batman and "The Dark Knight Returns" Batman - pretty damn similar!

Sexy Cosplay: Power Girl Edition!

Okay guys, any geek worth his salt knows that Power Girl cosplay exists for one reason and one reason only; big 'ol boobies! For this one, I'm not going to get all "this woman personifies the essence of the character by channeling her blah, blah, blah) Instead, I'm going to cut to the chase and give you all what you really want; T&A in a cape! Don't forget to check out my Wonder Woman edition here!

FINALLY! I Found a Display Cabinet!

I had great luck while yard-sailing this weekend; I scored this great display case with lighting for $10!!! The only defect is that the glass on the door is missing, but you can hardly tell as it simply looks like the glass is really, really clean. Ever since we moved to Portland, I've had most of my toy collection still boxed up, so it's great to be able to display them again. I still have the two shelves in the hallway with plenty of eye candy, and some of my collection is still boxed up, but I'm getting there! 

Feel free to email me pictures of how you display your own collection at and I'll be happy to include them in another post!

In Honor of The Release of X-Men: Days of Future Past...

I thought you might like to see the X-Men's first ever video appearance. It was waay back in 1966, and they appeared on an episode of the Sub-Mariner featuring more Marvel hero's than you can shake an ultimate nulifier at! Be sure to laugh at Dr. Dooms metal lips and Iceman's goofy-ass running!

Ben Affleck's Sad Batman Has a Shitload O' Memes!

Y'know, choosing a "first look" photo for an upcoming superhero blockbuster should be a lot like picking your child's name; make sure it's something people can't make fun of.
