New Look

Brightly colored tights

I'm not all that much of a Monty fan in the comics, but ever since he started on the whole Type-A Man Superhero story arc, it's been much more entertaining.

One of my all-time favorite moments in the whole genre was at the end of the Lois & Clark episode with Tempus after his defeat right before he gets arrested:

Tempus: Superman, as long as I have you here, just answer one thing for me.
               Why tights? Why a cape? You're a grown man, don't you feel ridiculous?
Superman: My mother made it for me.

In somewhat related news, the documentary about Real-Life Superheroes called Your Friendly Neighborhood Hero just came out on DVD. Will have to check it out, hopefully it's better than that abysmal reality show, Who Wants to be a Superhero?. I still don't know how Stan Lee got through two seasons of it with a straight face.

The Con (and Faire) meme...

Ok, since Inaki apparently started it, and I've been wanting to figure out just how many cons I've been to anyway for awhile now, here we go.. including all the Faires, since I'm a multi-fandom sort of guy. My non-FC furry con list kind of trailed off after I quit flying to cons in 2003, I've only gone to MegaPlex 2008 for a "road" con after '03.

This of course doesn't count fursuit gigs, that would be a much longer list. ;)

Super Jayhawk's Con/Faire List...Collapse )

So far this year I have yet to go to a Renaissance Faire, and I've been going to at least one for 21 years now-- so we're going to go to Northern Faire at least. Maybe later in September, when it's not 190+ degrees at Casa de Fruta.
