70 Years of Marvel Comic Book Covers
05/04/09 at 10:27 PM by Adrian Villagomez
Marvel Comics is celebrating its 70th anniversary, and the company has been encouraging fans to vote for the best Marvel characters, single issues, etc. I played along by voting for the best comic book covers in Marvel history, though I only voted for 30 rather than pushing the 70 limit. I think these are all pretty great:

Survival
04/24/09 at 12:03 AM by Adrian Villagomez
I came across this comic book cover recently at Marvel.com and I'd like to share it here:



Ms. Marvel #38 (Wolverine Art Appreciation Variant)

The Sentinels, monstrous constructions, signify the oppression mutants face in the X-Men universe. They are built to capture and control the mutant population, and they echo real human ignorance. But this cover art shows more than the terror of these machines. It shows an individual protecting his fallen comrade and friend. It focuses on the defiance of a few versus the unyielding authority of the many.

A great X-Men movie (there haven't been any thus far) would convey these emotions.

I want this shirt. Someone should buy it for me. I'm sure Karl would support your decision.

Google Doodles
03/01/09 at 09:38 PM by Adrian Villagomez
It's always a nice surprise heading over to Google and seeing a new stylized logo celebrating a holiday, artist, event, etc. I found out these logos are called "Google Doodles," and today features one of the cooler doodles I've seen. Yes, this one celebrates the birthday of the one and only Dr. Seuss:


Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss.

Graduation

I received my diploma recently while I was out of town, so I figured I'd post up my final college grades in celebration. My overall GPA isn't anything great, but I'm glad I went out pretty strong.

Watch Out Behind You, Santa!
12/25/08 at 01:18 PM by Adrian Villagomez


Rorschach doesn't take kindly to other costumed characters breaking and entering, then treating themselves to free food - that's his shtick.

Merry Christmas everyone. Now I'm going to watch The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Anyone else headed to the theater today?

Here's What I'm Listening To
10/07/08 at 09:59 PM by Adrian Villagomez
Every time I turn on my computer, I make sure last.fm is scrobbling the tracks I'm playing via iTunes. I've been signed up on last.fm for a couple years now, and I finally broke the 50,000 tracks played mark. Clearly that number should be higher (I listen to more than 39 tracks per day), but I was sporadic about scrobbling (what a fun word) at first. So if you're interested, check out my page, find out what I'm listening to, add me as a friend, whatever.

New avatar and wallpaper combo. Lovely, I know. The birds remind me of a less sci-fi Deja Entendu.
