What You Reading?

I Love to Read

At any given time I am reading one or two books and any number of comics. When I was a kid whenever my grandfather saw me with a book in my hand he’s say, “Hey bud, what you reading?” And I’d tell him with childish gusto and enthusiasm.

An Immaculate Fix: A Junky’s Christmas

It was Christmas Day and Danny the Car Wiper hit the street junksick and broke after seventy-two hours in the precinct cell. It was a clear bright day, but there was warmth in the sun. Danny shivered with an inner cold. He turned up the collar of his worn, greasy black overcoat. This beat benny wouldn't pawn for a deuce, he thought. He was in the West Nineties. A

What You Watching? Man-Thing (2005)

In 2005 a film adaptation of the comic book character Man-Thing was released from Lions Gate Films. And I can say with full confidence that of all the films released in 2005 – this was definitely one of them. I don't know why you'd want to but you could watch the movie version I guess. I had to watch this "adaptation" (several times actually) in order to do a
