Day 456-Thirteen Things: Geek Edition

Newer Older

1. I've collected and read comic books for over 20 years.

2. The power I've always wanted was telepathy. Strength and flight is one thing but the power of the mind is where it's at.

3. If given the choice to be a Jedi or a Sith I would be a Sith. They have more fun.

4. There is not a day that goes by that I wish I could Force Choke stupid people that cut me off on the road.

5. Superman is Batman's bitch. Yeah, I said it! Don't believe me? Read Dark Knight Returns.

6. I can sit in the comic shop at home for hours and argue the difference between the Marvel and DC universe. Make Mine Marvel!

7. The Voltron with the lions is the better deal.

8. If I still had my GI Joe's and Transformers from when I was a kid I'd still play with them.

9. AJ and I have played Lego Star Wars into the wee hours of the morning.

10. Empire Strikes Back is the END ALL BE ALL of the Star Wars saga!

11. I've played a few games of Risk that have lasted an entire weekend.

12. I used to play Magic: The Gathering

13. I never got into Dungeons and Dragons.

    I'm a Marvel boy myself.
    I did play D&D, but not Magic.
    Risk was the shit back in the day. My friends and I played a game once with 3 boards set edge to edge. It lasted 3 rounds. I shit you not.

    Picture is cool... and you are a very interesting person! *smile*

    I'd never really gotten into the comic books but I think if I had I would have dug the hell outta them.

    In regards to #5, Batman has always been my favorite of the superheroes because he's just one of us with a darkness inside of him and super cool gadgets that he uses together to fight evil! Gadgets will win me over every time!

    #9...it's the only PS2 game I currently own! YAY! I need to find out which box it's in....I love using the force to break stuff open. Oh yeah!

    OH yeah...this photo...rocks! Yes, yes it does.

    I collected comics until college age (the golden age including the Dark Phoenix days of X-men and the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). I got back into it with Civil War and DC's 52 but I couldn't keep up. I've resolved to graphic novels that I buy for my son.

    Cosign on #2, 5, 6, 7, 8, and DEFINITELY #10!!!

    I almost forgot...in regards to #4...sometimes as I walk into the office I have the Emperor's Theme playing in my head and I pretend I am able to Force Choke anyone I encounter along the way and by the time I get to the door to my office, I have a huge smirky grin on my face. Those are good days.

    you would LOVE it here. there are constant debates over all of the things above, especially batman vs superman, or superman vs a jedi, or anything. it's amazing how geeky the peeps are here. but i mean, hey, that's cool.

  14. MichaelKPhoto 77 months ago | reply

    Of course they are TeeRish, you work in geek heaven. Most of us would give up a body part to work for George.

    I always preferred Marvel over DC (except for the Vertigo line for non-superheroes).

    Yes, Batman would kick Superman's ass in a fight as per Dark Knight Returns. Gotta love Frank Miller.

    I played AD&D growing up and still occasionally play MTG with one of my friends.

    Telepathy is cool but I've always wanted to have Spider-Man's powers.

    I'll take Jedi over Sith except the Sith definitely get better tattoos...

    Empire is definitely the best without a question out of all the Star Wars movies...

    you are definitely a geek and so am i...although mellowed over the years and i am a marvel fan!
    you need to go the comicon!!

  17. Cyan Del Mar 77 months ago | reply

    Dark Night Returns is pure genius. Thank goodness for Frank Miller. I will probably keep coming back to that comic forever.

    I am mostly marvel myself. I love Batman, but most of DC I could do without. I think the writing with Marvel is just better.

    What else to say? Empire rules. The prequels I could do without (though the siths are mighty neat looking) too much politics and not enough schlocky light saber play.

    Have you read Origin? The wolverine beginnings? Very cool.
