“I hope this is all there is to your midlife crisis” – wifey The hardest part of any purge is taking stock of who you are at this moment as opposed to who you were or who you thought you’d be. I’ve tried indie film and there’s a little pile of that stuff here. I […]

900 Things week 2: What Makes It A Library?

Week 2: November 11, 2012 My first round of eBay is closing. I think only about 1/3rd of the items will sell. Still, start somewhere. Mostly it was dvds in the first round. I wanted to get the hang of eBay again before diving in with other items. A week into the 900 Things project […]

Trading Up?

I love comic books; a simple statement that has completely impacted the course of my life. From my early days as a newsstand reader of GI Joe, to my days as a comic book store owner; from the burnout days of not wanting to go into a store and only buying trades, to finally, my days […]
