He’s a comic, but not really. A socially are youtuber poking fun at the celebrities we’ve come to know and love. Who is he? Asa the comic, that’s who.

Check him out. Listen. REALLY LISTEN.


Admittedly, I am late in the knowledge.

So there. What’s not to love, especially when you hear the live versions.
So you have the LEAD SINGER of Survivor, yes, EYE OF THE FRICKING TIGER. Singing for the plug. DAMN!

Search for them on youtube. Well worth it sir. I swear to you. HEHEHEHEHE!

Not much changes this week. Basically everything from last week and a few new things.

Pokerface by Lady Gaga and the other song by her whose title I can’t remember. Edit2: The title is Eh-eh, pronounced “ey-ey”.

Hmmmm, nothing much else really. Hmmm.

Edit: Interestingly, it looks like Taylor Swift is going back on top.

Simple thought processes to help lead me through to my new faction.

Cygnar is interesting because of the options available to it. Sometimes I think there are TOO many options and that kind of kicks the list designer’s ass all over the place. Cygnar is also the faction where a compact army is a distinct possibility especially with the options of a Jack Heavy Darius and Kraye army. Cygnar is also well versed in denial with the options of presented by Siege and Haley. You can also go the offbeat fun list with Nemo(though Nemo is brutal against certain lists) and an all takers army with Stryker. My real issue is that Cygnar doesn’t have a full on “one trick pony” ‘caster. Since I plan on making a non-serious list more for fun. I could also just make a serious list.

Mercenaries are a challenge that have somewhat of an “easy button” feel at 500 points. Playing magnus with two Renegades, Eiryss, Orin, A&H, Alexia, Dougal, Sea Dogs and their Solos of Doom makes for a fun looking list with alot of characters and interactions but I’m not too sure if I want to go that route. Mercs are like the untimate customizable army but I don’t know if I really feel the lists. I know that they’re competitive but I’m unsure just how much effort I want to put into them. It’s really the power of the Obliterator rockets that are pulling me in. Really tempting arsenal, those rockets, even though you only get one shot. Hmmm…

The Khador list I’m planning is an army that will TRULY be a one trick pony. I’ll most likely play an assassination list with Sorscha as my caster. This is a monotonous list, to be honest. It’s going to have an end result much like my Cryx lists, caster kill with a predisposition towards anti-infantry to allow for the option(though you never want to go there) to grind it out. This is not a distinct possibility at the moment. I could use Vlad but I don’t need to, or want to for now.

Menoth is actually pretty tempting since I’m liking both Reznik and Kreoss. Tricky brutes, both of them. LOL. Anyway both have spells and feats that are kind of attractive but I will be taking one or the other. Kreoss has a predisposition towards an infantry heavy army while the Reznik list I am planning on is leaning towards being jack-heavy.

So the leading candidates are Cygnar and Mercenaries. Hmmmmm, interesting. Since both are pretty solid in my opinion.

I’m planning on trying out a new faction in Warmachine. I’m not interested in Hordes just yet. So now I’m picking which faction to try. Cygnar is interesting in that I can probably come up with a 500 point list capable of switching from grind to assassination. If I go Khador I’ll probably focus on a Sorscha list full of solos with a predisposition towards anti-infantry and assassination. A Menoth list for me will probably be a Reznik list with a balanced composition of infantry and Jacks, though Kreoss is an option. I’ve got lists ready for each faction so I have to weigh cost and fun factor though. Cygnar will be a challenge, Khador will be like a chunkier version of my Cryx army and Menoth will be something I’ve never tried before.

Decisions, decisions…

Edit: Mercs are creeping in. The temptation of magnus the traitor is pretty high. Hehehehe!

I was awakened at around midnight AGAIN. Ah, PHAIL. I’m so pissed and tired right now I don’t even want to get up but I have to because I have to process the payroll for a bunch of ingrates who only give a shit about money they didn’t really work for, assholes who value “pakikisama” but don’t value LOYALTY. Ah well, guess what? If you’re prepared to bite the hand that fed you then you better be prepared for that same hand to strangle you to death.

Okay, I got my first poster the other day and I’m really just waiting for a frame for it before I go and open it. I want my posters to be protected before I remove them from the box. So I wanted to check out the posters I REALLY wanted and maybe just list them out just in case anyone had them and would let me take a gander at them just so I can see if it’ll be worth it. Hehehe! Actually, I’d probably still buy the posters but I might as well get to see the product before I buy it since my obsessive compulsiveness will not allow me to put them in a position to be damaged.

So, here’s my CURRENT wish list.
The Sandman: Endless Nights Poster (Frank Quitely)
The Killing Joke Poster (Brian Bolland)
Batman #619 Heroes Poster (Jim Lee)
Batman #619 Villains Poster (Jim Lee)
Batman & Nightwing Poster (Jim Lee)
Crisis on Infinite Earths OVERSIZED Poster (George Perez & Alex Ross)
The Real Power of the DC Universe Poster (Adam Hughes) (August, 2009)

So I’m off to ask Filbar’s if they can procure any of these posters for me.

Ah well, I am a member of the family of PHAIL.

I swear, let the guy with insomnia sleep. It seems that whenever I get to sleep early something happens that I need to wake up and do some form of physical exertion that will WAKE ME UP and send me on a downward spiral of restlessness. It never fails. Just tonight I was awakened by my older sister(who by the way, does not live with us anymore) because they came to change cars and she wanted a package deal of getting some of her stuff from the guest room. So when she calls at 12 midnight who does the call get shunted to(even though the one who answered was my older brother)? Yup, me. That’s not even the end of it. Minutes into her “visit” who would happen to call but my dad asking me to be ready for their arrival. Ah, you see where this is going, I guess? So here I am, FULLY awake and pissed. I truly wish that SOMEDAY they understand what happens when they wake me up. I’m not being demanding, I just want them to understand that this religious thing of theirs is THEIR choice, please don’t try to make your devotion detrimental(inadvertent as it may be) to the other members of your family who actually need sleep a little bit more because they barely get any sleep to begin with.

I’ve got a brand new vice to sink my money into.

Comic book posters. I swear, now that I know how pretty they are nothing is going to stop me any time soon. Especially since I’ve got a grocery list of what posters I want already. Mostly Batman and The Sandman posters with a sprinkling of DC Universe Women to add variety.

My first ever comic book poster I bought was the Print of Batman #676 by Alex Ross. A fitting start since it is the cover of the first issue for the story arc “Batman R.I.P.” and it’s by one of my favorite artists.

Okay, as soon as “Battle for the Cowl” finishes there’s going to be a VERY important set of decisions for me to do. I’ll be streamlining my buy list as soon as the Batman series get restarted or reintroduced. This is entirely dependent on the release schedule of the various series. Hmmm, Batman and Detective comics are practically a given to begin with so I hope I can fix my options to see the best possible set up of buys. The fact that I’m getting back into Green Lantern and “Blackest Night” is starting up soon is not going to help.

I’ll give you an idea of what series I am currently buying.
Detective Comics
Green Lantern & Corps
Secret Six

I also buy the other Batman affiliated series sporadically. JLA and JSA when I feel like it. Superman rarely. Hmmm… I have to think about this since there are going to be eight Batman realted series after Battle for the Cowl wraps up. Six of the series are to be expected but two of them seem to be the “Gotham at the street level” type of series, which I also happen to like. So I’m gonna need a hella lot of discernment and thought for this.
