I haven’t been posting on this blog as much as I want to lately because hey, a man needs to work and save up for the future. Beer, pizza, and comics won’t pay for themselves you know. Thank goodness for this long weekend (5 days, bitches!) that’s giving me some time to catch up on TV shows, movies, comics, and some blogging shenanigans. I’m not sure if I can catch up on all of that, though. I’m just glad I’m not working for a few days.
An actual photo of me in my actual former job that I actually quit 2 years ago. Actually irrelevant to this post.
And now for some updates you didn’t ask for but you’re going to get anyway:
The Avengers Tumblers from Petron
I gassed up the other night at Petron along C5. I usually gas up at Shell but the Empty sign on my fuel gauge was already on — I like to live on the edge — so I had no choice but to stop at the nearest gas station. It was my dumb driver instincts that led me to Petron’s The Avengers movie promo that gives people the chance to buy Avengers tumblers for Php60 each whenever they purchase at least Php1,000 worth of fuel.
I only got Thor and Hulk because the fuel guy told me Captain America and Iron Man will only be available next week. He neglected to tell me that Cap and Iron Man are actually already available in other Petron gas stations. That fool. Anyway, the figure on top of the tumblers are actually pretty awesome. Thor can throw Mjolnir! And Hulk can smash! I can’t remember the last time I was excited about tumblers.
Avengers vs. X-Men Loot
I finally made my first purchase on Comicx Hub and of course it had to be a pre-order of Avengers vs. X-Men #0-12 and Avengers vs. X-Men: Versus #1-6. This totally makes me feel better about downloading some comics illegally. Haha! I’m totally kidding. No I’m not.
Nothing beats waking up in the morning with a package of comics goodies waiting for you right next to your bed. My first package of AvX stuff arrived earlier today and it included issues #0 and #1, a couple of pins, a couple of posters, a program guide, and a really small shirt. I tried the shirt on and, well, fat people like should not wear tiny shirts like that. Doesn’t mean I won’t wear it, though.
The package arrived via LBC. I didn’t know they deliver packages on Black Saturdays so it was a really pleasant surprise. Good job, LBC! You too, Comicx Hub!
COMIC BOOK VIOLENCE!
A few months ago, I was posting regular updates on 10 different blogs. Now I hardly post on 4. Still, I do my best to entertain people with my fascinating words and compelling images — and by that I mean I do my best to amuse myself when there’s no alcohol or food around. On that note, I would like to invite you to humor me and my blogging efforts by visiting — and maybe even reading — my blogs (Baddieverse, Purveyor of Villainy, COMIC BOOK VIOLENCE!, and The eLBi Life). Also, I’ve recently created a Facebook page for COMIC BOOK VIOLENCE! because I’m hoping that there are more people out there who love violence in comics like I do. ‘Like’ it if you like explosions and fictional people punching each other in the face.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some violent comics to read. Thanks for dropping by!
