The Pault KeeperSH*T!!!!!

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and you just realized that you haven’t made the reservations, haven’t ordered the flowers, haven’t gone out shopping for that perfect gift for your boil or ghoul!

Well, worry no more my friends, The Pault Keeper is here to help you be the romantic bastard we all know you are! Jewelry, flowers…that stuff is so old school. We’re in 2009, kiddies! You have to step up your game! All that stuff is generic – you need to appeal to your lover’s inner-geek. Here’s some cool ideas that’ll either make him/her go “Wow…this is awesome!” or “Really? What the hell made you think I wanted this?”

So put the Sensual Yoga DVD back on the shelf (you won’t get what you want out of it) and throw away the poem you made of old Duran Duran lyrics…let the Pault Keeper remind you of….

Skulduggery Pleasant

I’m a big fan of Skulduggery Pleasant.  After only two books in the series have been released (the last one in April of 2008), I’ve been anxiously awaiting the next tale of the skeleton detective and his plucky teenage sidekick, Valkyrie Cain, as they try to thwart Lovecraftian monsters from invading our world.  So every couple of weeks I’ve been checking the Skulduggery Pleasant website, or Googling the name, to find out more information about the new book, The Faceless Ones (the name of the Lovecraftian beings in this series).

In the early spring of 1976, I discovered my very first comic book. I was nine years old and hanging out at the corner convenience store with my best friend, Stevie. While the clerk had his back turned, I dared my chum to steal something.

He stole a two cent piece of Bazooka Bubble Gum.

He then dared me to steal something, but it had to bigger than his.

Dan Didio!I just watched the last part of Newsarama’s 20 Questions with Dan Didio video series, and read the questions asked of him at NYCC, and I have to say…wow. Some of those questions I felt were really kind of disrespectful!

Newsarama.comWow.

For the last two days, I have been following a disturbing thread at Blog@Newsarama.  Blogger J. Caleb Mozzoco engaged in a little link-blogging posted an ill-conceived ‘joke’ concerning a children’s costume event.  The organizers of the event had put out a call for all “superheroes and fairies.” Mozzoco, playing on this wrote:  “Make your own superheroes are gay joke.”

As I write this, there are 15 responses to Mozzoco’s comment and the only ones defending it are Mozzoco himself and another Newsarama blogger.
