Well it’s good to be back, albeit bittersweet but I missed the intellectual stimulation, and frankly, I missed Mark Evans too. For some reason he thought it was a good idea to have me do a blog on here and since I don’t have better judgment I obliged. I also felt this week to be an epic one to return to the interwebs. To begin with on Sunday 3/21/10
one of my heroes, magician,skeptic and paranormal investigator James Randi, announced that he was gay. This is important to me for many reasons, the man has always been a source of inspiration to me and somewhat of a teacher, although only through books and videos, I have never had the fortune of meeting him. Also, he has been a staunch believer in standing up for the truth and what is right. He has always advocated honesty and rational thinking. This led me to discuss it with my friends, to my realization most of them didn’t know about the Amazing Randi. This led me to put up a post on my social networking sites in an effort to educate people a bit. Then I remembered Mark Evans and his invitation to blog. I figured this would be a better place for that sort of thing. Check out this video James Randi exposes Uri Geller to see this guy doing what he does best .
Then on Wednesday Mark Millar’s Nemesis comic was released and I felt like blogging about it. The damned thing was so hyped and advertised I just had to go see it in print and on the shelf. Sure enough, it did not disappoint. Some how everything Millar does turns to gold and although this is just another typical gratuitously violent Millar book, it still has a good story. I can’t explain it Mark Millar should have become a cliche in the comic book industry by now but the guy is good. I have yet to read something of his I don’t enjoy. Nemesis, basically, takes the Batman mythos and turns it inside out. Instead of having a deeply disturbed guy with lots of resources helping the world, you have a deeply disturbed guy creating havoc and chaos in the world. The first issue is action packed and features a scene with a guy being run over by a train, that alone should make you want to read this book.

Well that’s it for now enjoy the first post and have a great day.
