Oh Computer, I Missed You So

Well, I don't normally post on a Sunday, but since I missed both Friday AND Saturday, I suppose that I should let you all know that I'm not dead or anything. But since it is that time of year, I WAS attending the annua NETSA Trade Show at the fabulous Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort in deepest darkest rural Connecticut. NETSA of course, stands for New England Tire Service Association, or something like that, and my Sweet Baboo is on the board, so there is a LOT of wining, dining and schmoozing. Frankly, my feet are STILL killing me. When oh when will I realize that vanity is my downfall and wear sensible shoes?

So...I MISSED you all. I didn't go on a computer for two whole DAYS, and my blogging hand is shaky. And while Tire People are a wily and hardy breed, and the chocolate torte was to DIE for, it just wasn't the same. Not only did nobody know about Blackest Night, they didn't CARE!

Except...at one point, I snuck out of the exhibit hall, and collapsed onto an extremely comfortable chair, and pulled out a nice TPB, with the JLA and the JSA teaming up, because I was starting to get the shakes, and a handsome young Marine, in his dress uniform walked by, spotted the book I was reading and gave me a BLINDING smile and a thumbs up.

My faith in humanity was thus restored, and I was able to face the wine and cheese party with equanimity.


Hoohah! Oh Hal, I needed some of your buffoonery. Self-induced lobotomys are ALWAYS the answer!

Got to love the concept of Hal washing his mind clean.

No cleaning agent is powerful enough to wash away that much smut.

Nice thing here is that it sets up Identity Crisis. Hal has wiped his own mind -- but he arguably doesn't know, by story's end, that he has done so.

Whatever. His butt is unharmed.

So wait. What Garnet says is interesting: Did Zee really mindwipe all those people? Or did Hal do it and make Zee think she did it?

We could get a-whole-nother mini-series out of that! It could even tie-in to Parallax and all that stuff.

There's Geoff Johns' event for 2010!

That's why I thought that whole Identity Crisis business was so ridiculous. The old League pulled out the mindwiping card all the time, man. It wasn't just a heroes vs. villains thing -- when they visited the future or a particularly trippy alternate reality it was the same...

"Having this knowledge could cause a deadly paradox, so I will now use my power ring to erase everyone's memori--oh, shut up, Oliver!"

Could this be the ability granted by the Guardians' next Commandment?...

It's especially telling that Batman is right there, and has absolutely no problem with the concept...in stark contrast to his hissy fit in IC, where he thought that mind-wiping was worse than kicking puppies.

There is the possibility of course, that since it is HAL, Batman figures there isn't much mind to wipe, so what the heck.

Oh, you too, huh? Our computers are fine, but our router died Thursday night. Made it AWFULLY hard to get an internet connection. :-(

I swear -- nothing is funnier than Hal messing with his own head. ;-)

He could have just hit himself in the head with a yellow hammer.

* Please note, I did not mean the term yellowhammer, which can get you in big trouble in some parts of the country.

Oh Dwayne!

Gee, I haven't said that to you in a while! Back in the saddle, again!
