Fast Post of Good Stuff #1

Things I like.

1) VIETNAMERICA graphic novel - via Warren Ellis.

2) Morning sunshine.  Actually, you'd be an ass to not like morning sunshine.  Unless severely hungover, of course.

3) Games with great storylines that I don't play, but my boyfriend does - Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted 2, Assasin's Creed: Brotherhood.  I get to sit back and do cross-stitch embroidery, but when a cut scene appears I enjoy that too.  Without mashing a single button on a PS3 controller.
My old lady pastime is indulged, yet my Gen Y knowledge base increases.  WIN!

4) Bacon.  Oh, and mushrooms.  Together.


  1. Glad to hear you are finding some bright points in the darkness. We have to grab them when they are there.

    I haven't read any comics for some time. Last year I read some of the more recent Hellblazer trade paperbacks in the bookshop, but they weren't up there with the old stuff by Warren Ellis or Garth Ennis.

    I liked the first season of The Walking Dead quite a lot, and I'd like to check out the original comics sometime.

  2. The Walking Dead is truly superb! I haven't checked out the comics either, however I am waiting with anticipation for the next season to come out. My fave moment is when you find out that (duh!) Glenn was a pizza delivery guy. Little details like that can really make a story.

  3. I thought that was a nice touch too. I'm not sure if you saw it, but back in the late 90s there was a British series called "This Life" that the main character of The Walking Dead was in. If you haven't seen it, you should check it out, I think you'd like it.
