Stephen Colbert . . .last episode, and Ice cream

Hi Universe and Facebook folks,

Well I am sure many of you watched the final Colbert report and it was entertaining.  I didn’t realize it had been on for 9 years! Plus he was doing that character on the Daily show  some prior to his own show.

I don’t post on Politics but I gotta say regardless what side of the isle you were on he was fun to watch.

But for me personaly the most influential thing he did was lend his face to a Ben and Jerrys  icecream


This stuff is freaking delicious! and yes you gotta eat the whole thing in one sitting its that damn good!


So the interesting question is now that he is taking over for letterman what is he going to be like? He’s played the same character for 9 years what will he be like? Will we see himself  as he really is or another character? He definitely can hold his own on an interview so no problems there. So I guess we will just have to wait and see.

In the mean time Thanks Colbert Report for making me laugh

11 Holiday Haunts

It’s the time of year that spooks even the most die-hard haunter: the Holidays. The gleeful smiling faces of shoppers and blaring Mariah Carey Christmas songs are proof that the true scares in this world aren’t confined to just Halloween. Thankfully, a few dedicated haunt crews have decided that the season is just a little too cheerful and have constructed their own holiday horrors. While we found over 30 haunts across the U.S. that celebrate the holly-jolly days with fear and fright, we chose to feature eleven attractions (in no particular order) that really caught our attention.


Brighton Asylum Santa's SlayFirst and foremost, how could you resist such a great name! Santa’s Slay – get it? See what they did there? That’s gold right there, folks. We don’t even need to go in to…

Interview: Vince Hernandez Discusses Aspen, Kiani, and the Changing Comic Readership


This is a great post and interview and its all about making comics more inclusive for girl readers. Since an entire section of my comic and manga shop is just for girl comics I thought this was important so please take a look. Much Respect to Graphic Policy who originated this

Originally posted on Graphic Policy:

What was even more amazing was the honesty and transparency as to why this design change and update was happening:

And as our company and fan base continue to evolve, a new generation of readers will be introduced to this wonderful character, including a much larger female audience. We wanted to honor that spirit of progress by updating the look and feel of the series with an exciting new design.

In a year of major changes in the diversity of comic characters, this was the latest example that 2014 could be called “the year of the woman” in the comic industry.

We got…

Christmas with the Kranks Christmas Windows & your Traditions


Hi Universe and Facebook Folks

Well I’m watching Christmas with the Kranks and its a funny movie but as I sit here I am not laughing but getting mad at the characters in the movie opposing the Kranks trip to Jamaica for Christmas. Maybe its just because my big holiday is Halloween that I think to myself a Jamaica Cruise instead of Christmas sounds GREAT! So I’m actually getting mad that the neighbors are being that much of a pain. Nobody likes pushy neighbors. Now when the daughter calls and they gotta have Christmas its hilarious what they do to make it happen.

So This post is about Christmas and Decorating: how many of you guys celebrate and do you have any traditions for decorating or going any specific place?

Also many of you are my age or older and can remember the fancy window displays during Christmas downtown or have seen something similar in say NYC or Chicago or Toronto. With this in mind I ask this question. If I get the location I want for my business I would have a HUGE window space were I could do 1 massive display or possibly 3 smaller ones. So what would you like to see in such a festive display?



Let me know folks!
