Tony Hawk!!

I so made tea for this episode don’t even doubt that. My generation got to witness (and build up) The King of Pop…the other MJ (Air Jordan) and Tony Hawk. We’ve seen the best of the best. How astonishingly blessed are we! Icons! Renegades!

Birth Year Readings II

Friday September 28, 2012 was my birthday.

Not a particular milestone, another notch on the belt of time. Though one year ago I started Birth Year Readings…from birthday to birthday I was curious to see how much I read.

And it turned out to be a crazy experiment.

From September 28, 2011 to September 27, 2012 I read:
486 comic books (monthlys and one shots)

35 books (non-fiction mostly)

99 comic book trades (dagnabbit, had I known I was so close I’d have pushed for 1 more)

Nuty nuts that is. Still let’s do it all over again and see how much I complete by Friday September 27, 2013.
