An even better comment!

"The new Jibidy is kinda creepy, i'm not gonna lie. So let me guess .. the predator is going to appear in the next one and do his thing right? That would make the comic an instant classic" --my little brother.

What people are saying about new Jibidy...

"It's good you have a hobby, Dwain" --Chris O'Brien, Mayor of Shirlington

"Bout damn time Mr. Whedon." --Jeff Snow (I can only assume his comparison to Joss Whedon has to do with quality and not schedule management)

"I have been waiting for this to come and it has finally come!!! I can't wait to read that new installment or maybe I'll start with all the old ones first :)" --anonymous White House staffer.

"Oh, there are more? I must confess, I haven't read the first one yet" --Steph Grow, cofounder, www.eavesdropdc.com

Best song title I've heard in awhile

"Got Ma Nuts from a Hippie" by the Fratellis. Plus, the song is actually really good, and the band name is great (wonderful Goonies reference.)

5 Reasons why you should go see Ghost Rider in the theater

1. Flaming skulls
2. Eva Mendes - specifically her cleavage - I think director Mark Stephen Johnson has a crush on her breasts, judging from the amount of screen time they get. No complaints here.
3. Flaming motorcycles
4. Flaming chains
5. Assorted other flaming things

Do you need more?

Beer beer beer

Some friends and I discovered (not that it was missing several people tell me) a great wine emporium called Total Wine. They have a gigantic selection of wines and a bunch of locations in VA (some in MD and DE too I think). You can check out their website here.

Anyways, I'm not big wine person, but they sell beer by the singles as well, so I've been able to sample a bunch of different kinds of beers w/o having to pay top dollar at the Brickskellar.

Today's beer: Fix 1864. Apparently it is the traditional beer of Greece (though it is brewed in Wilkes-Barre, PA - that was kind of disappointing). It's a pretty malty lager, overall and ok taste - nothing super special. 3 out of 5 stars.

Previous beers:

Mississippi Mud: A delicious black and tan, and it comes in a really cool bottle (packaging is very important to me. 4 out of 5 stars.

Acme California Brown Ale: another yummy dark beer. 5 out of 5 stars. Rivals Dr Dremos' James Brown Ale. Hit Me!

Recent Netflix Returns

Yellowbeard: Man, I remembered Monty Python (at least Chapman, Cleese, and Idle) and Cheech and Chong, but forgot that Peter Boyle and Marty Feldman were also in this amazing pirate film. "Stop pissing on the hedges! They're imported!" 4 out of 5 stars.

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes: This was not the movie I remembered. Turns out I was remembering the sequel, so now I have to rent that. This is really pretty bad (most purposefully so). 2 out of 5 stars.

Kinky Boots: fun British comedy - the same kind of make you feel good about yourself movie as the Full Monty. Chiwetel Ejiofor is fantastic. 3 out of 5 stars.

One of the more important holidays of the year.

While the Bears and Colts are two teams I generally dislike - Super Bowl Sunday is generally one of my favorite days of the year. Food, beer and football? Perfecto - what could make it better? Pirates, of course.

(I know - I'm recycling old comics - I can't help that my stuff has timeless appeal)
