::START OF RANDOM POST::
So I was going through all my old hard drives. Found out I about five terabytes laying around and two half terabyte drives. So I fixed up the computer adding additional drives and setting up two my external hard drives, pulling off lot of files and cleaning things up. Plus with making more movies for YouTube lately and broadcasting on Twitch and with all the podcast going on. It wouldn’t hurt to have some more room on the computer.
Plus with it being a quiet and lazy Sunday to an extent. Plus it has cooled off a lot weatherwise, it just seemed like the thing to do. I did find out I need to get a new SATA cable though, I’ve seem to misplace mine.
::END OF RANDOM POST::
So early this morning I received a message or two from our podcast chat where we discussed about topics that we want to cover or news, even just normal everyday shenanigans.
But the message that was brought up was about a comic book company called Rare Earth Comics. 2 years ago they started the first volume of Doctor Atlantis with a Kickstarter and then they made a second volume. Now they have a new Kickstarter for Doctor Atlantis volume 3!
So far for Doctor Atlantis I rather enjoy the look and a feel for the comic. Has swashbuckling, epic adventurers and the possibilities for new discoveries that are infused with Steampunk (which is really all up my alley). I personally can’t wait for this one to come out & I’m actually looking at the other two comics thinking about getting them.
I love the artwork of the comics. Looking at them caused me think of two comics from my past that I haven’t read in a longtime. The comics that came to mind while looking at all this were The Adventures of Tintin
(and if you don’t know who Tintin is. The comic came out 1929 ran to the mid 70′s. Also if you are living under a rock and missed the movie that came out which was actually surprisingly good. I had my doubts about it at first, because I love the comics. But the movie was very well done, very cool, very classic. But that’s a different topic all together. Back to the main topic that is Doctor Atlantis. Sorry getting back on track now) and the other is The Adventures of Asterix.
For those who don’t know who/what The Adventures of Asterix is… It’s an old French comic that came out, I believe 1959. I mean granted the art styles are completely different, Asterix is more cartoony. But Doctor Atlantis art work takes me back to The Adventures of Tintin. But those two comics are the ones came mind while looking at Doctor Atlantis. So I’ll definitely be checking it out! Looks like a fantastic story, well written and the artwork is phenomenal.
They have their Kickstarter up and it looks like they reach their goal. But it looks like they’re still going. I’ll post a link to the website along with their main website. Also looks like they have a few other comics one of them called Shadow Tracers. Also they have 6 difference webcomics as well: The Adventure Team Alpha, Living Legend, Joy Riders, just to name a few. I highly recommend checking them out.
They definitely have a “mom & pop” feel to them. Like a group of friends that came together for the love of comics, storytelling, art work and made their company.
So did some massive revamping for the website. It was about a two day affair, just cleaning up everything and also made a custom background with profile picture for Twitter/Facebook. Currently working on one for YouTube & G+.
But I kept it simple by going back to basics. Rather having a prominent black and red theme colors like in the other logo previously.
Although I liked it. It was just to busy for my liking… When I first made it I went for the old classic EC comic feel that’s been beaten up a little. Now over this past year I’ve had more writers jump on board this website now and it just seems kind of a selfish move the just have a cartoon characteristic of myself as a superhero that is dead center of the logo. Not really representing the group as a whole. So that had to change and redesign the whole thing. Changed the color theme with more of a lighter blue/electric blue and some points, give it a classic comic book backgrounds with dots. Also made a superhero silhouette background with the atom symbol.
I like how it came out! A lot of work but it came out pretty good I think. I also figured I post some of the past logos I’ve made for this website kinda like a evolution type deal. Some of them are really bad and hokey, but it definitely gets better with age.
I’ve also made an official Twitter account for nerdy life of mine. I was rather shocked because I just open it yesterday and it started to escalating well into 150 to 200 followers already just a short few hours. So if you would like to follow it’s @nerdylifeofmine.
And now news about podcasting!!
In a upcoming post I’ll layout the current schedule for a July and August with some recent modifications . I’ve made note in some other posts that Random Nerdness poadcast is ending :(. Chris Lockhart is ending Random Nerdness due to just having too much on the plate, plus with a family life somehthings had to change. So Geek Fallout and Geek Follow (the comic book episodes), as well as Trek1701 are still running and going strong. So we’ll be doing those.
Also we’ll be taking part in the Extraordinary League of Bloggers every Monday will be doing a certain topic and sharing back and forth with other bloggers. Its something very cool and very fun! Plus it helps open doors for other genres nerdom, also it’s a good way to promote things & that never hurts :).
I also like to take a moment and say thank you for all the readers and writers for the support over these past wacky & crazy few years. This websites has had it’s highs and lows, coming into it’s own with other people taking part in to it. Big thank you for everyone that’s taken part in this website and also it’s loyal followers.
