Well, I guess it’s my turn to introduce myself. My names Jim, nothing fancy, just Jim. I fully admit to being a geek. Ever since I was a wee lad I’ve been in love with comics and books in general. I then added bad late night TV (Love Boat, I’m looking at you), Movies, and finally video games. Of course I have other interests but these are the biggies. Now I know what your thinking…it takes a special kind of geek to admit he watched Love Boat, not just a couple of times but the whole series, and your right. I like love being a geek.
Where it all began…Comics
I started buying my own comics at around the age of 5 or 6. Going to the small town drug store to scan the racks. I was a particular fan of DC’s Blue Ribbon Digests. Those two books in the link above, I have or at least had them new when they came out. Those of you who are DC fans will love me, those who are Marvel fans…well, let’s just say we might have some issues to work on.
Video games, the opiate of the masses. I’m the resident video game guy on this site. I have owned at least one console of every generation starting with the Atari 2600. More often then not I owned the wrong console(see Sega Genesis). I have many a fond memory of playing my Colecovision with my big brother. One of the lasting memories I have of games back then was playing Super Action boxing with Rocky and Clubber Lang with my friend at the time Chad. I knocked Rocky down and through some glitch it looked like blood was flowing from Rocky’s concussed head. Aaah, good times!
At this time all you need to know about my love of movies is that I recently bought the Smokey and the Bandit collection on DVD. That movie really stands the test of time 😛
In the coming weeks I will talk more about my love of movies, video games, and lest I forget food.
