TBT: Evel Knievel Days

Sammy Younan

Girth Radio Presents…

I miss danger.

Some days it feels like I’ve traded the recklessness of youth for the security and safety of old age. Granted it takes longer to heal now; still I miss danger. I miss adventure.

Soar Like A Hawk

Today!!! I finally witnessed one of the last great American superheroes…I saw Tony Hawk live. And it was spectacular; sweeter than Mountain Dew if that’s possible.

To see a man soar, defying gravity and all that threatens to keep us down. I hope the kids who were watching took notice…they’ll be starting school soon and it’s back to colouring in the lines…whatever that’s all about.

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. I did not include all the various articles, blogs I tend to chew on, rather focusing on my three primary food groups: comics books (monthlys and one shots), books (like with no picture…novels to non-fiction) and comic book trades (collections anywhere from 4 issues to 10 or more).

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.
