For the past few years I’ve been reading through the X-Men comics. All of them. New Mutants, Excalibur, X-Factor…every title that existing in order of publication. This wasn’t planned. I’d read the comics as a youngster and stopped during my teenage years. Through the x-cellent podcast ‘Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men’ I felt a […]1990s: The ‘Dark Time’ of X-Men Comics

The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R Tolkien (Harper Collins 1991) pp. 116-118 I love all the times in The Lord of the Rings when someone enters the story mysteriously, wonderfully and decisively. Think of Gildor Inglorien and his companions appearing on the woodland path upon which Frodo, Sam and Pippin have just encountered the […]Ho, Tom Bombadil!

This super villain story from Action Lab puts the enjoyment back into comics.Villains Seeking Hero Volume 1 Review.
So this story time take place at Wizard World Portland Comic Con. I believe this is the Feb. 2019 event.. Before the dark times… Now I would like to state this story also shows how great the staff is at Wizard World and the people are a whole.
So just about every year I am hired to do media coverage for the Portland Wizard World Comic Con. The last couple of times I was about to bring my kids along and show them a great time. This last convention and like always I go over the maps with the kids. Where to meet up if we get lost or who should we talk to if we do become lost.
We had been there for a couple of hours already and I had finished with a interview. we were going to take a small break and look around the merchandise and comics. Me and my son were looking at the swords and Funko. At which point my daughter asked me to come over and look at something she wanted. It really wasn’t that far, just right around the corner of the stall. I told my son to follow me and stay close.
Once my daughter and I were done paying for her loot. I looked over to see my son wasn’t there. I wanted back to where we were and he was there. with a small amount of panic, I started walking over to the walls to see if I can find a staff member, this is also where I told the kids to go if something like this happened. It’s away from everyone.
As soon as I turn the corner I see one of the staff ladies walking with my son to the last known where we here. I walked over and see that my son was crying a little bit and worried. The staff member told me what happened. Seems that my son answered me, but really wasn’t watching where I was going. As he was locked in on the swords. When he realized that we where not around anymore, he started walking to the wall and was trying to find a staff member. But he found Deadpool instead and asked he could help him find someone. From there they found the current staff member.
She said he was smart and brave in the way he acted. After a few laughs we said thank you, but not right before we got a picture with Deadpool haha.
Over all it was really good convention and the Wizard World staff was amazing and super helpful. I don’t think they get enough coverage or talked about in most conventions, as most of the spot lights are on the artists and movie icons. I can’t wait for 2021 comic con!
So while writing out the last remaining installments of this challenge. I figured I’d share a few more of these lore videos by History of Middle Earth. Right now I’m working on the Silmarillion, Return of the King, and a few more history events/icons within’ the Middle Earth. So I am sorry if there was a long pause there. I’ve been reading and writing at the same time at points.
I have to say this has been a rather interesting adventure and I had no idea what I was getting into when I started it in May of 2020. Almost feel kinda sad that I’m nearing the end.
So it seems that WordPress has changed things up again on their posting layout. Their “Block” system, personally I think it’s trash. It takes me a number of times to upload a picture or video for my post. Not to mention editing with this system is atrocious. I find myself writing on my phone through the app or I use Word and then copy and past on to here….
I’ve on here for almost 10 years now and I haven’t been this frustrated in a long time with WordPress. In the past you had an option to change back to the classic form of posting . But now it seems you have to “upgrade” you plan to even get the classic form.
Has anyone else had these problems?
It’s now 2:53am…. Everyone it’s sleep. But me.. Why you ask? The damn cats, well one of them at least. I was laying in bed all snuggling in and right about to fall asleep. Then I hear this heavy thud and run. More banging around.. I was going to try and ignore it, but he did something new. He started scratching at the door in a frantic manner and meowing.
Then more banging. So I get up thinking I’m going to yell at a cat. But I stop at the door before opening it and had a split second thought. A “what if” thought.. So I grab my hunting knife just in case. There was a lot of movement out there and the cat seemed so freaked out. So I open the door and look.
Everything is quite and still.. All silence.. I walked down the hall and see one of the chairs it’s knock over, my bills and papers all over the floor. Trash can knocked over (thank Odin we have a lock in it.) and look over and see the cat. Completely fluffed out and looking down the hall, looking pass me. I see our second cat sit on top of the couch, doing the same thing.
I look over and see nothing. Their eyes were wide and locked down the hall. Again I see nothing, I look in all the rooms, doors are lock, check on the kids. Everyone is asleep…. So I walk back and clean up the mess. I pick up the cats and brush them for a minute. They seem to return to normal, everything is all quite. So I try to go back to sleep… NOPE! With all random action and leaving things in a bewilderment state. I was now wide awake..
So here I am write you this little story, in hopes it’ll make me sleepy. If not, I’ll wait for two hours till my girlfriend gets up for work and make her some breakfast. This whole thing is weird, and unusual for the cats to do. I know my son asked me why the cat was scratching at their door a few nights ago. I thought it was odd, because they don’t do that. But I didn’t think much of it.. At least till tonight Haha. I kinda want to set up cameras and see what goes on at night.
Thank you for reading,
