Super Anniversary

Yesterday was the Eightieth Anniversary of Superman, celebrated by DC releasing Acton Comics 1000.   I know the other one is a Superman issue, but its such a great picture.

Although I have been collecting Superman regularly, on and off, since Action issue 600, having two of my favorite writers being removed from Action and Superman to make way for a defecting Marvel scribe, meant I originally didn't have a post themed to the Last Son of Krypton today.


I read the bittersweet, but beautifully executed, farewell of the Superman team, followed by reading issue 1000....


And was once more reminded why I read Superman comics in the first place.


Ah, who needs sleep anyways?


Lets take a look at how this issue celebrated the creators and the concepts that have kept  Superman as the premier super hero across eight decades.

Peru 2- Incan Boogaloo: 2017 Index


Following our first family trip to Peru in 2014, Rosa had been back to see her Mom several times, but we all hadn’t made the return.  To commemorate Anabelle’s Eighth Grade Graduation (as Salutatorian, he said with insane amounts of pride) we decided to go back, and give her both a longer and a more varied stay.

Alice Cooper 2018

I wasn’t planning on writing up a full post on seeing Alice Cooper for the third time with my family.

I figured I’d end up overusing “awesome” again and repeating myself describing “A Paranormal Evening With Alice Cooper” tour we saw on March 9th in Morristown’s MPAC Center.

However, since it was - in fact -  awesome, here’s a list of observations that felt new and…
Well…
Awesome.

George Awards: The Universe Aimed Very Low and Settled For Very Little

Warning
This post contains bad, foul, filthy and unacceptable language - the words that “will curve your spine, grow hair on your hands and maybe, even bring us, God help us, peace without honor.”

This is not a post for children.  Kids, take a hike.
This is also not a post for those adults who are offended by this type of language.  Do yourself a favor, and go read some of my cute stuff before moral outrage can kick in.
Just about everything else on this blog is clean…Stupid sometimes, but clean.
End of Warning.

“Being Foolish on April First…


Is like getting drunk on Saint Patrick’s Day. It’s strictly for amateurs.”


I’m not sure where I stole that quote from nor do I have the energy to check at the moment, but I'm going to adopt it (a day late, I suppose) in order to talk about a couple of serious things I’ve been thinking about lately.
