Well, he IS the first comic book character to break into the 900th issue club.

This issue is a joke in more ways than one. I’m guessing all of you know about the “Wonder Woman issue #600” thing. You don’t, ah heck, message me or leave a comment. It’s actually pretty good marketing and reader whatnot.

This issue is FILLED with craziness but that’s pretty much all you can expect from the Regeneratin’ Degenerate.

So, every story here will have you scratching your head in confusion, either that or every story will probably leave you in stitches as the obvious pop culture references constantly bombard you. I’m not joking, nothing is sacred to this book. Not even CSI. Ahahahaha!

Anyways, there are some more serious things to read about. The funnier ones are better though especially the story that deals with pacts.

Does anybody want to join me in a photowalk around Manila? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

No comics were available at the store this week. So I’m thankful that I bought a full brace of comics prior to today. I was finally able to get Lockjaw and the pet avengers #1 & 2 as well as Superman #686 – 689.

I’m really enjoying L&PA and I’m very glad to have finally gotten them since it’s been a long time since I last got into a series purely because of the cuteness effect. The fact that the story is nice is the cherry on top.

The “World without a Superman” storyline is interesting. Mon-el becoming the main character is something that I really liked since he was an old favorite of mine in the Legion of Superheroes. I really like how he’s acclimating to earth and his reaction to the fact that he could die just like that being “I want to live”. Admirable, actually. It’s an enjoyable read so i may just continue this arc. Though the soon to be restarted Adventure Comics may boot this title out.

Oh yeah, check out Francis Manapul’s Homepage HERE, I swear, you will not be disappointed. He’s now one of my favorite comic book artists.

And here’s the list of next week’s(hopefully) purchases.

SUPERMAN BATMAN # 62
TITANS # 15 (BLACKEST NIGHT)
WEDNESDAY COMICS # 2 (OF 12)

OK, I got to check out a new resto with the shak bois last night. Soft opening, chilling with friends, AMAZING food AND drinks. Great GREAT restaurant. Located in Food street at Ortigas Home Depot, Kusina Teatro is a place to go to chill and talk with friends while eating food that will NOT(I repeat, NOT) make you full and drinking alcohol mixes that give you a warm and fuzzy buzz. Hehe!

Anyway. The restaurant is really chill, it looks to be a great date place(DO NOT take a date who eats alot there) Check out the Facade HERE and the Interior HERE.

And the food! Oh the food was GREAT! I’m going to go and suggest whatever it was that I ate.
Oh, I ate the Pork Belly Confit so check out how it looks HERE and it’s DELECTABLE.
I also ate the Fried Cheesecake. I had mine ala mode and you’ll get to see it HERE.

On another note, my friend has a drink named after him. It’s called the Fluffy and you can see it HERE.

And no, I haven’t gotten it. I haven’t been getting the impetus to go beyond my normal “less than 500 word” blog entries. It’s frustrating that there are so many things in my head but I find it so hard to let them out in a coherent manner like writing.

Right now my brain is a mash of flying ideas and random emotions. It’s a very uncomfortable time right now when I’m uncomfortable even around people who I’ve known for AT LEAST 7 years. I’m tired alot so I’m probably in a low point/valley of my “bi-polar-ness”. I don’t really understand why I’m feeling like this or what triggered it. I guess the family situation has finally gotten to me.

I’ve also found a sort of comfortable niche in my photography. I’ve always wanted to take photos of people and I really like the energy of music so I’ve been looking forward to gigs and concerts to take photos of. I’m not that good at it yet as my framing and certain issues have been popping up BUT I’m getting somewhere.

If you’re a photographer and you want to get better, go over to www.kenrockwell.com and read up. REALLY read up. He makes sense. Admittedly, I don’t agree with some of his points BUT he knows his shit. Don’t be caught up in your preconceptions, READ. Then go and make your own way. That’s what I did.

Okay, here’s something I’ve been thinking of doing with friends. A photo-safari somewhere, ANYWHERE. I don’t really care anymore. I want to have fun with friends and photography again. I may actually pop out the film camera and some of the treasured VELVIA 50s I’ve been keeping in stock for this safari. Which reminds me, it’s time to go buy some film. I hear fuji megamall just got some new stock.

I’m glad that the LSI camera I started on, a HOLGA 120CFN, was one of the “serious” Lomographic cameras. This is entirely my opinion but you can’t go around expecting the camera to do all the work for you. The artsy side of Lomo(which is what alot of people don’t REALLY get) is that you create the image in your mind’s eye, you don’t just go snapping up every single thing you see praying to get something good. That sometimes works, admittedly, but put in a bit of effort man! You have to set up the multiple exposures to actually make them MEAN SOMETHING. This is the same reason why some people with digital cameras infuriate me. They keep shooting, hoping for a good shot that they can post. Why don’t they MAKE a good shot so they can post it?

Now, let me tell you about my newest sourceS, PLURAL, of camera lust.
I’ve been wanting for an OLYMPUS 35RC for a long time now, and now that I have the money to get one, I can’t find one conveniently available. Can anyone help me? PLEASE!
I’ve also found a Nikon FG camera with a 50mm f/1.8 that’s very reasonably priced. Great find, but now I have to get more funds. This is a situation I normally have a hard time handling. Hehe.

So there, I finally have the long entry I was looking for with the needed RANTAGE and RAVE-AGE to get my emotions out. Yay for me!

There WILL be a Tron II.

LET. THAT. SINK. IN. TRON. TWO.

TRON effin’ TWO. EPIC WIN.

It BETTER be an EPIC WIN. With a reported 300 million US$ budget.
Ooh ooh ooh!!! Light BIKES FTW!!! GLOWING FRISBEE IS TEH EPIC WIN!!!

I SWEAR TO GOD, I WILL WATCH THIS FILM IF IT KILLS ME.

There’s supposed to be a mini-EB today. Do I REALLY want to go? Do I want to see people I don’t REALLY want to see? Do the people I DO want to see outweigh the people I don’t.

Damn, this is confusing…
We shall see…

On a totally unrelated note, I REALLY missed RX so I went yesterday. I didn’t think I could miss it THAT much. 2 months. I’m kind of happy now. Haaaay, melancholy…

Today is the day when my internet conks out on me. I hate it. So I am back to being an internet squatter. Oh well.

On a lighter note. Today is the day I saw scabs squirm. LOL YAY me.

Ironic that my “once in a blue moon” top10 performance had to come with the “Top10 Euphemisms for sex” I scored two number ones and a number two. Not a bad haul at all.

Something just clicked today. I’m just hoping that it happens again.

I just got a lamp that clips onto my bed(actually, it’s the actual bed, the bed I don’t use since I sleep on the floor…) and totally mitigates the need for me to keep the lights on at night when I’m struck by insomnia and I feel like reading. It’s also great ‘coz I now have no need for the guide light on my laptop. It’s also alot easier to manipulate and get to where I need it.

Hehe, it’s the simple things that you appreciate. Especially when the alternatives are such a hassle by comparison.
