Dave!February is a pretty dead month for blogging because all I ever do this time of year is work. Even I don't find that to be entertaining, so I have to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find something I can write about. Fortunately, I have a Twitter account to steal from, which is about as bottom of the barrel as you can get.

Of course, even Twitter isn't the best source of material right now, as I usually ignore it so I can Get Stuff Done. But every once in a while I have a free minute while I'm on the phone or waiting for a 3-D image to render or whatever. Then I can wax poetic to the Twitterverse with my usual brand of madcap insanity. If you already follow me on Twitter, then this can be considered a "best of the worst" summary. If you don't follow me on Twitter, then boy are you in for a tweet!

Errr... I meant treat.

Sometimes I share health tips and free medical advice...


Sometimes I feel like going full-on political...


Sometimes I say things that will incriminate me in a court of law...


Sometimes I share my email with everybody...


And I am happy to follow-up with any updates...


Sometimes I share my frustrations with topics of the day...


Sometimes I offer helpful suggestions, like when John Krasinski from The Office was rumored to be a possible candidate for playing Captain America in the new movie, I had the perfect idea for casting Cap's sidekick "Bucky"...


I mean, seriously, they make such a great pair as Jim and Dwight on The Office that it could totally work. Except I got a few nasty comments, so I had to put my Photoshop where my mouth was...




More Twitter madness follows in an extended entry...

Sometimes I vent my frustrations with comic book promotions...


Because, seriously, first there was Green Lantern and his green power ring. Then there was Sinestro and his yellow power ring. Then they said Star Sapphire was actually using a violet power "ring". And now you've got an entire assortment of blue, orange, red, indigo, and the rest. It sucks because then you have to collect all the various colors to complete your swag collection...


I'm lucky enough to have a very good friend who has helped me fill-in the colors I'm missing, but NOW they say they're coming out with a White Lantern ring?!? This is bullshit...


I was only joking about "Infrared Lantern" and "Ultraviolet Lantern," but I'm guessing that's what is coming next. Nothing quite like watering down the uniqueness of your superhero until he's lost in the shuffle. Bleh.

Sometimes I just like being a whiny little bitch...


During the opening ceremonies for the Olympics, I tweeted a lot because NBC STUPIDLY TIME-DELAYED THE OLYMPICS and everybody had gone to bed by then and nobody was reading Twitter to even care...


And, was injecting commentary of my own during the Olympics from time to time...


Because, seriously, the guy recovered from a catastrophic accident, and ended up taking the gold medal... it doesn't get much more inspirational than that.

And sometimes I just need to sum up my life at a certain point and share it with the world...


Which could pretty much sum up this blog entry!

    So, exactly why is it that my doctor has never shared with me the best way to get rid of a cold? If I’d only known!

  2. Sybil Law says:

    Um, this post kicks any of my post’s asses.
    I enjoyed it!!

  3. B.E. Earl says:

    I dig the Green Lantern. Hal Jordan and his ilk, I mean. Alan Scott was just stupid. A vulnerability to wood? Feh.

  4. Karl says:

    Egads, I hope that Krasinski rumor is just that.

  5. karla says:

    Dave, love you but gotta say I hated that ‘punch in the vagina’ tweet. kinda nasty. kinda too visual.

    But still love you.

    • Dave2 says:

      Sorry. Though that has been a phrase I’ve been hearing a lot lately. Initially I was relieved, because guys have been taking it in the crotch for decades now with “kick you in the nuts” and “punch you in the junk” and “cock-punch you senseless” and “wreck your testicles” and on and on. Maybe it’s the ladies’ turn to take one in the groin? But maybe not. 🙁

      Love you too! 🙂

    I think the Lantern idea is pretty neat. Geoff Johns has done a good idea expanding the concept from Green/Willpower and then incorporating the Star Sapphires and the Sinestro Corps into a multi-layered universe. There can really only be one orange lantern, and the blue and indigo are really limited, almost Guardian-like, so all that really does is create another group to fight – the Red Lanterns.

    • Dave2 says:

      Green Lantern is one of my favorite comic book characters. He was actually the first comic I ever bought (along with an issue of The Flash). And all along I really liked the concept of GL because he was part of something bigger… a bigger canvas that opened up all kinds of awesome possibilities for the DC Universe. I loved it when the book had space-faring adventures with cool alien races and interstellar combat on an epic scale. But things went seriously wrong with the whole “Emerald Twilight” fiasco. To “fix” things, suddenly the yellow impurity was made sentient, paving the way for the “emotional spectrum of light” MacGuffin. Now the once interesting aspects of Green Lantern’s universe were blended together into a rainbow soup that totally bores me. No longer do we have singular interesting and unique creations… they’re all part of the mix now. Carol Ferris and Star Sapphire, Sinestro and the Weaponers of Quad, and every member of the once super-cool Green Lantern Corps… they’ve all been mashed together in an unholy union where everything in the GL universe gets drug back to some aspect of emotion and the power spectrum. I’m guessing it’s only a matter of time until Hector Hammond, Sonar, and even Tattooed Man are somehow forced into this new “model” so the writers can show how clever they are by finding justification to make everything fit in the same mold.

      “Holy crap! Turns out the special ink used by Tattooed Man is actually a physical residue of the power spectrum! He is able manifest objects by drawing on all the energy batteries! ZOMG! Once Abel Tarrant figures this out, he becomes the most powerful villain in the universe, and creates a NEW spectrum battery with a Corps of his own! It’s the INFRARED LANTERNS!!”

      You laugh, but if things keep going this route, it’s bound to happen. We’re already swimming in Lanterns… it’s only a matter of time before we’re drowning in them.

      Personally I can’t wait for Evil Star to be revealed as a Periwinkle Lantern!

      • Avitable says:

        Heh. I actually think Hector Hammond is about to be revealed to have a part in it, because they mentioned him in the last issue.

        I love it, because I really enjoy seeing the way that the different types of colors affect different people. Seeing Barry Allen as a Blue Lantern was awesome.

    I don’t really blog my tweets, but I do use them to figure out where I’ve gone and what I’ve done, so that I can blog about a trip. So, I’m a lot like you, in a way.
