Gulp!



Well, we're moving back to Blighty on Wednesday (yes, this Wednesday), and it's about as hectic and insane as you might imagine. But I think I might have become desensitised to the whole thing, as it just feels like I'm going on a trip. I expect the panicking will start when we get there.

Batman #650



Okay, so hands up who expected the story to end like that? What the heck was all that about?

Mental.

Lazy/beautiful



Oh, I've been crap again. It's because my life of late has consisted of either slouching about the house, or doing boring organisational things in preparation for The Big Move II. So far, things are a bit of a nightmare, organisation-wise, and I suspect things will only get worse, but my thinking is that we will be rewarded for our patience. We'll see.

While sorting and packing, I uncovered a tryout script for Marvel, that they put out in 1999 or 2000 when they were looking for new artists. Back then, I couldn't have done it, and even now, I don't think Marvel would even think about hiring me (and I'm not sure I'd want them to), but I thought it might be a fun experiment anyway, so I'm going to have a go and then put it on my website.

Oh, and I received my contributor's copy of Solar Wind #6 today. I actually feel a little bad for receiving it, to be honest, as I only contributed one page to it, and it's a sizable publication. Oh well. Next time, I'll try harder to earn my keep.

Sorry, this is all dreadfully dry and boring, isn't it? Fear not, I expect I'll have plenty of horror stories in the coming weeks to make up for it.

Oi oi!!!



So yeah, it's been a while. Nothing of particular interest to report (well, I did have a good laugh at this, mainly because Warren Ellis once tried to beat me up...), which is probably part of the reason why I haven't posted anything of late. Lots of reading and writing, not much arithmetic.

I did hear the Arctic Monkeys single the other day; I quite liked it, and was sufficiently impressed by what I was hearing about their staggering chart and sales successes that I got hold of the album, and... well, it doesn't really impress me. Good single, bit of a boring album.

There. That's my annual music post. Now, I have stuff to do. Expect my next post to be in another two weeks or so...
