I had a pretty decent weekend. Sunday was the highlight really. Comic book show in P-town, found the two trades that I wanted, Fell (an Image book) and The Secret (which has nothing to do with the secret religious thingy, fyi, it's a dark horse book).
Saturday I made the statement that I wanted to find something that had to do with the karate kid at the show, and I didn't really come across anything, until I found a book from the late 80s early 90s I'm guessing that is about hollywoods hottest up and coming young stars, featuring ralph macchio, molly ringwald, tom cruise, alissa milano, and many other hot up and coming stars. the most awesome part about finding that book was the fact that it didn't have a price on it, so when i asked the guy, hey, how much for this, he was like, how much do you want to pay, and rather firmly i replied that i wanted to pay a dollar, and he was happily like, alright, and i was like, awesome. it was a pleasant transaction.
i love the portland comic book show. it's just cool to be around a large group of people wearing cool shirts, like, han shot first... fruity oaty bars... various dragons and etc. and to see people bickering over prices of silver age comics and old overpriced 80s dairy queen cups and action figures and to see portland's own brian michael bendis and the list just goes on and on.
as if that wasn't a cool enough way to spend a sunday, nick and i met up with some friends and saw the new doc The King of Kong: A Fist Full of Quarters. Which was awesome. I think I'll try and post about it later today over at Silver Trampoline.
that's all i got for now. oh, wait. in other news, i got a new cell phone. which is pretty spectacular. that's it.
