Sir Oliver Grimsley, Sinn Bodhi, and Qefka the Quiet will bring their brand of midway madness to King of Trios! The Odditorium’s unpredictability and ruthlessness give them an edge over the other teams in the tournament and could bring a victory to this Flood team!

Well… for August 29, 2014.

Well… I almost thought I wouldn’t get a chance to write today.

TeamHellions_Well Logo A

Well… I have a new job, but I’ll be back in the same problem soon.

I’m going to be the manager of a Halloween City store.  Yay for pay and the money to support my family.  But boo because this means halfway through November I’ll be searching for a job again.  There is so much to do and so far its only me working on everything.  This is going to be rough, but hey only two months of stress.  Then all new yet familiar stress!

Well… they ruined Amy Pond.

Hulu has a preview up of the new show Selfie.  It is brutal.  Just brutal.  Oh sure Karen Gillian appears in her underwear for a scene.  Other than that the jokes fall flat and worse, Karen and John Cho have no chemistry.  Fingers crossed its just a bad pilot and the show will get better.  But I’m not optimistic.

Well… is there any reason to Hulu to edit Raw down to an hour and a half.  I almost always miss a match or a segment I wanted to watch.  This week it was AJ and Paige.  Yet again.  Storage or time shouldn’t be an issue.  I’m already sitting through Smackdown, NXT, and Main Event.  What’s one more hour?

Well… now what am I going to wear?  We were debating on going to a horror convention as a family next month.  However, a month out of work and the con being only two weeks away makes that seem a bit rough.  Maybe after all this crap the lesson is to save some money and thus build up a nest egg for the next time it happens.  Then we can take this time and money and concentrate on the actual day of Halloween.  I’m thinking maybe I can open the store and have the night free to dress up as a family and take some adorable pictures.

Well… I think that will be all for this week.  I’m debating on putting in 10-11 hours tomorrow to get a lot done.  Stupid real world jobs.  Writing is work but at least its work on my own terms.

Fear of Flying Review.

From Brian Canini and Drunken Cat Comics.

FearOfFlying

I made a new friend today, and his name is Brian Canini.

Here’s what happened.  A little while back I reviewed some comics from Drunken Cat.  They were enjoyable and I wrote a positive review and then Brian sent me some other comics.  However, life got in the way and its taken me a little while to review them.  Fear of Flying was sent to me July 19th.

Since then I got laid off from the big money making job and have yet to find something else that earns enough money so I don’t feel stressed out.  In the mean time I’ve been immersing myself into the freelance writing world and taking the time to catch up on some review copies.  Enter Fear of Flying.

Like any good friend, Brian entered my life exactly when I needed him most.  Fear of Flying is an epic original graphic novel.  Every day for one year Brian drew one page detailing the events of the day.  Sometimes silly, sometimes upsetting, but every day it is an honest representation of what was the biggest part of the day.  As days become weeks and weeks become months a larger picture emerges.

Brian is going through a major life change as well.

We held hands through this year.  Brian, holding the paper while he puts down ink and me holding that paper to see the drawings many months later.  Reaching out through time and space I saw the journey he has taken over a year.  I read it over the span of a couple days instead of experiencing them over 365.  This has made my current life seem less like a barrier and more like a wall with a door I need to find.

Brian has a long distance relationship, he searches for work, he is an artist and thus feels that horrible doubt we all do.  But it is all temporary.

I needed that lesson.

Feeling sick after eating all the Cheez Whiz wont last forever.  That problem at work wont last forever.  Feeling lonely and broke wont last forever either.

What does last forever is the stories and lessons of experiences.  After reading Fear of Flying I feel like Brian and I sat down at a bar and caught up on the last year of our lives.  It has been rough at times and fun at others.  Through it all there has been growth.  Brian is a better man for all of this and I will be as well.

Its nigh impossible to see the clearing ahead while going through shit.  After reading about Brian’s year I can see how A led to O…hi…o but also see how b, c, d and so on were necessary along the way.

Fear of Flying needs to be put next to Blankets on the graphic novel shelf.  Its a beautiful open examination of what we all feel and a much needed positive note at the end to help other believers carry on.
