Quick Hits

Earthlings, I welcome you.

In this installment of our little venture, I am going to do a bunch of quick hits because I am incapable of keeping my attention on one or two items.  Sure, there are meds for that sort of thing, but I enjoy the chaos.  Let's roll...

  • I do not know much about Megan Fitts, other than I just read a beautiful comic from her entitled Old Friend.  It is over on the Plume Snake website, along with many other refreshing titles.  Ms. Fitts also has a tumblr page you should check out.  What is more fun than stumbling upon cool things to read?  Aside from playing Destiny for 7 straight hours, not much.  Check it out!
  • And when the hell is Tumblr going to purchase an "e"?  Pull it together, gang.
  • Geoff Johns is the new president!!!  Forget Trump or Hillary, this is the presidency I am excited about.  Johns has proven himself time and time again to be a huge asset to DC Comics, and his hard work has paid off career-wise.  With his new responsibilities, I hope he can find time to write here and there.
  • Oreos...they're delicious! #larrykingstylerambling
  • The new Star Trek movie was a blast.  A lot of Trek purists do not like the reboot, but I have enjoyed them, and this movie was the best of the new ones, in my not-so-humble opinion.  When you complain about the new Trek, or the new Star Wars, or even the new Ghostbusters, please keep in mind no one has taken the old stuff away from you.  It's all still there.  Your memories of them are still there.  If they released the new Ghostbusters with the caveat that every copy of the original movies would disappear and your memories would be wiped clean, then by all means, act like a crybaby.  Until then, let's try and enjoy some entertainment.
  • My 1st gen Kindle died.  I have prepared a 10,000 word eulogy.  Fortunately for you, I will spare you.  Hello new Kindle Fire!  
  • Another Star Trek/Green Lantern crossover? Yes, please.
  • I've started cleaning up some short stories I have been writing for years.  Maybe someday...
  • Over at Field of Geeks, we recently did a review of Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan.  With Trek's 50th anniversary, we thought it would be fun to discuss what is arguably the best of the films.  Next week we will tackle First Contact!
  • How did this entry of my blog have thousands and thousands of hits?  Weird.  My posts range typically anywhere from 100-1000 hits.  Thanks, Mr. Grayson.
  • Read anything by Gregg Hurwitz.  You're welcome.
Have a great week, kids.  We are recording a new podcast tomorrow with a ton of news items.  Once it is edited and available, I will link it here and on Twitter.
