The Things I Do for Money

on Jun 20, 2008 12:30:00 pm - 749 views | 5 comments
Hey all, since I can't seem to organize the comic book related blog entries I've got floating in my head, I thought I'd give you a brief glimpse into what I do, which is bridge engineering. In my last job, I was kind of specialized in design for 4 years, then construction inspection for 3. In my new job, I've done everything but forensic engineering (think: why did...

The reveal of a...

So I am sure a lot of you are thinking that I must be made of money...rest a surred I am not, it is just creative financing. Last weekend Best Buy had a deal on Samsung TV's that I (not my wife) just couldn't pass up. Basically you buy any Samsung "flat panel" TV and you get 3 years no interest. To top it all off I was also able to get the TV price matched (I...

So, in between movie/book/game reviews (i wont do the old stuff i watch... because its kind of pointless, isnt it?) I'll most likely be just ranting about things that happened during the week/month/eon Like this week: I turned 18! Yay legality!!?! I'm the first in my group of friends to turn 18, and no one has yet asked me to buy the porn... i was asked to buy a...

This website is pretty cool, I remember when Comicspriceguide.com used to be free when it first opened, but now you can't get much features for free over there. I spent most of today adding my collection on here and I'm pleased with the search tools and good use of AJAX on this site :) Once I get a new scanner I'll help out with uploading covers. After adding my...

Maintenance (or - The Vicious Circle)

Spending my day off bagging comics. Apparently, I haven't done any bagging for about 16 months. Love collecting comics, but MAN do I get behind on that stuff. And then, after bagging them - I need to file them. Which means shifting boxes of comics to make room for the new ones. I stopped re-bagging my already bagged comics (like the experts recommend doing) a couple of...

comic reader vs. comic collector

on Jun 16, 2008 12:35:00 am - 664 views | 7 comments
To me this is a very different thing. comic readers actually read comics!!! comic collectors just have them for investment or art. collecting started in the late sixties but didn't catch on until the 80's which led to the crash of the comic industry. i myself am a comic reader AND collector. i read all my comics especially my grails. i love the stories in the GA/...
