The Pull List, 14 September 2011

My name is Jet Wolf, and I’m addicted to comic books. Since picking up my first issue of X-Men way back in the late 80s, comic books have been a focal point of my life. I can’t imagine a world without superheroes flying around in brightly coloured and impractical costumes, punching out bad guys and sometimes each other. May the Pull List be eternal. Here’s what was on it this week.   We’re well into […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 20 September 2011

DLC this week is all Nirvana to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Nevermind, which by the way doesn’t make me feel old at all. All of Nevermind is already in the game of course – at least in some form or another – so the new tracks are from In Utero and a single from their eponymous collection. Also included are ten pro-guitar upgrades for songs already in the game, all Nirvana so basically all […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 13 September 2011

While I’m fairly certain that this wasn’t the impetus, today’s my birthday and it’s like Harmonix gift wrapped the single this week just for me. The Weezer pack’s okay too I guess, but man, Janis Joplin? Oh yes please and thank you.     The Songs * Janis Joplin and the Full Tilt Boogie Band – “Me and Bobby McGee” * Weezer – “Hash Pipe” + * Weezer – “Island in the Sun” * Weezer […]

Give me Planarite or give me death.

I thought today about the things I need to do. Thinking about them was about as far as I got. Tomorrow, I shall MAKE A LIST. Tremble, world, at my list makitude. One of those Things is doing my PAX write-up. It’s great because right now I think “Oh I can probably get all four days into one post.” Then I remember I took like 600 pictures and laugh and laugh and laugh and then […]

The Pull List, 31 August 2011

My name is Jet Wolf, and I’m addicted to comic books. Every week since 1987 I’ve had comics pulled and waiting to fall into my eager hands. It’s a practice that’s survived multiple comic shops, a cross-country move, and the entire 1990s. I’ve always loved talking about them after reading, first boring friends too polite to tell me they didn’t care, then babbling with my future husband in the proto-internet, and finally spreading my opinions […]

Ten Things I Love About You.

Ten Things I Love About You.

Ten years ago today, Mike and I were married. It was a no-frills civil ceremony that I honestly don’t remember much about because I was too damn nervous. Silly, perhaps. We’d been together since high school and nothing was going to change, not in the day-to-day at least. Yet nervous I was, even managing to stumble over and come in far too early with my “I do”, my only line of the day. “Oh, well […]

Why we PAX.

As mentioned, we’re off to PAX tomorrow. When I last really talked about PAX there was much Sturm und Drang and I was unsure how we’d proceed. Clearly that decision was reached. It didn’t come easy, and I’m still a little uncertain, truth be told. But after a lot of talking and even more thinking, I decided that turning away from PAX was to surrender it, and the culture of so many things I love. […]
