I think we all remember my post about nerd life in Switzerland, a.k.a. that time that asshole insulted me for wearing an Avengers t-shirt. I also prefer my bed and the internet to actually meeting people irl (because a) I am a little shit and b) reasons) so any interest I had in meeting other geeks in Switzerland died a swift and rather painful death around that time.
Until I found KABOOOM!, a comic book shop in the middle of Zurich, run by the lovely Patrik, who’s incredibly nice, not to mention helpful. Incidentally, last Thursday, he invited me to the Uncanny Raid, a comic book meet up that happened last night at the store. Of course Jhoana (who’s been listening to me rant about comics over the last two years) had to come with. Take it from both of us, it was awesome. I met some incredibly lovely people with whom I had awesome convos like silencewillfallwhenquestionasked and live-long-and-unitato! There was a quiz and everything! Anyways, awesome experience, would love to go again. Let’s hope the dates work out, with me being in the UK so often and also having Small Group every Thursday… we’ll see how it goes.
On another note, I spent 200 bucks on comics. Most of it was Sandman. Also, forgot to take a picture of the comics I got, but I got:
Wolverine and the X-men #1-6:
Secret Avengers #5
and Ms. Marvel #6
On a side note, I have already read them all because I got the digital issues, but I need the singles and they always arrive later. They’re just so pretty.
Guardians Of The Galaxy has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes right now. WOW and Fantastic for Marvel
i take reading fanfics very seriously
what if the after credits scene for Age of Ultron is of Phil and his team being annoyed because they have to clean up the mess of whatever city the Avengers end up destroying during the movie?
This heartbreaking story is about as elephant Raju from India that had an incredibly rough life. After being poached from his mother he was thrown from one owner to another, until he was left living in terrible conditions with no shelter at night, being used as a beggars prop all day long. Raju survived only from passing tourists and sometimes had to eat plastic and paper while being chained 24 hours a day. A wildlife organisation SOS-UK could not stand the injustice and decided to save him in a daring midnight rescue operation.
The elephant, realizing he was being saved, started to cry: “It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realised he was being freed” – claims Pooja Binepal, one of the rescuers in an interview with Presspeople. “Tears began to roll down Raju’s face. Some no doubt were due to the pain but he also seemed to sense that change was coming. He felt hope for the first time” – says another rescuer Kartick.
I wanna be
where the people are
If you’re not going to comic con clap your hands.
If you live no where near it clap your hands.
if your favorite cast is showing and you’re dying ‘cause you’re not going.
then go ahead and cry and clap your hands.
