    Holy crap, I haven’t been here in what feels like forever. I missed you guys.


    I missed you most of all, off-topic room.

    Been a weirdo week.

    So my mom has a leaky valve in her (been there for years) and doctors wanted to wait until it was necessary to fix. That day came on Sunday, she's having a valve replacement surgery tomorrow. It's weird week for me.

    Yikes. That's a lot. Hang in there and I hope it all goes well.

    Surgery was yesterday. It went great and mom is recovering well. They had her up and walking a little today.

    Over the weekend my wife asked me who I was messaging on Facebook. It happened to be @mguy1977 and @Torchsong , and I said Matt and Al. She goes which are they? People from the CGS forums, we've been friends for over a decade. She now calls you my secret friends.

    Most of us have been talking for a really long time and I am proud to have you guys as my secret friends.

    I tell that story because you guys rawk and it leads to tonight's story.

    My wife is starting a kindermusik (kids music classes) business and has friends from her training that she now calls her "secret friends" (she's jealous of you guys). One of her younger secret friends introduced her to using gifs in text. She was telling me about how on point she is with gifs now. then texts me a gif. She was so mad that I texted her one back immediately like I wasn't supposed to know how.

    The fact that you're a Falcons fan and I'm a Saints fan should also be entered into the equation. :)

    Burning Sensations anyone?

    Btw, The Burning Sensations was a "New Wave" band back in the early 80's. They had an MTV hit called "Belly of the Whale".

    On occasion I am forced to reply to the I with absurd comments.

    I happened the other day when someone got internet righteous on me. What else was I to do? I could ignore it as I do most things on the internet, but this guy just put it on a tee. I had to take a shot, and as with most of my internet "arguments" I'll let him win because I really don't care, but I am giving him the crying Indian.

    I just saw Alita Battle Angel. I thought it was more entertaining than Captain Marvel. Not really a better movie, but dang it was fun.

    I'm still learning to fight that "Someone is WRONG on the Internet!!!" vibe and just let people "win".

    I'll get there someday. :)

    For some reason people get really irritated when you let them know that they won. ;)

    Especially when you declare their victory and walk away. You don't have to get worked up and can ignore the internet righteousness.

    But never leave a chance post the crying Indian go unfulfilled because Nothing is more absurd.

    Flash Fact: Iron Eyes Cody, the actor in the crying Indian commercial, was not a Native American at all... he was actually Italian (Sicilian, actually). He died in 1999.

    Everybody see that story about the 17 foot python found in the Everglades? Crazy.

    In case you were needing another reason never to go back to Florida, Miami has new critter to deal with, Nile crocodiles.

    Alligators I'm okay with, they don't want to bother anybody. Nile crocodiles eat people for a living in Africa. Forget that stuff, if it hits Miami then it's north to the Everglades and upward migration. I hate Florida.

    Florida has been working on a new tourism campaign slogan: “Why go all the way to Australia? Come to Florida and get eaten by our wildlife instead!”

    So I think cgs might need a discord channel.

    I love the forums they have been a place for me to meet people I will probably never meet in real life. They have been a place to talk with people about something else during the hardest parts of my life, but y think we might want to look at something else to get us together.

    I don't think Twitter builds a community like the forums did and I am just trying to think of a way to keep us together and grow new ways.

    I have omnibus questions. I am getting 2 omnibuses the silver surfer by slott and allred.

    What omnibus would you recommend

    Captain America by waid and garney

    FF by waid and wrenigo

    or Thor heroes return vol 2?

    FF all the way. The Waid/Garney Cap was really good until they got kicked off for the Heroes Reborn crap, but when they came back they couldn’t quite capture the same magic. Still good, just not as good. The Waid/Ringo FF, however, was pretty great from start to finish. As for the Thor book, it probably contains JR Jr.’s best artwork outside of Daredevil: Man Without Fear. It’s also probably my favorite thing Jurgens has written. But I much prefer Ringo’s artwork to JR’s, and Waid’s writing to Jurgens’. I’m not really a Jurgens fan, though, so your mileage may vary.
