WWdN (a quick review): Breezing through another week of October [From my "Famous Blogs" blog]

Well, life's been keeping me busy, and I've hardly had time to read Wil lately, but here's a quick recap on thoughts triggered by specific entries:

October 11, 2006 (Introducing the Geek in Review)

Ah, yes, gaming! The ultimate geek "getaway weekend"!

I remember those days fondly.

Whiling away the hours, excercising the little gray cells solving puzzles, avoiding traps, raiding hoards, and otherwise defeating evil, be it D&D, Champions, Star Traveller, whaterver. Them were the days!

October 16, 2006 (pattern recognition)

I don't recall William Gibson's Neuromancer as well as I'd like, but what I remember most was (a) I loved it, and (b) it may quite possibly been the first "cyberpunk" book I ever read (at least, the first that flew under that flag).

Put another way, more fond memories, and this from "a kid" nearly half my age (acutally, at the time of the first movie I saw him in (1986's Stand By Me) he was about 14 and I was 30.)

October 18, 2006 (The Absolute Sandman)
Now Neil Gaiman's Sandman I do remember (and remember well!)

That was a damned fine comic book.

I don't buy comics anymore, though (in fact I still have a few I'd love to find buyers for — any takers?) because it got way to costly (in terms of $$$ & HH:MM:SS).

I also doubt I can get it through Inter-Library Loan, but watch: that will not stop me from trying!
