I haven't seen the anime remake, but the original German Metropolis is something to see. A Silent black and white film that is breath-taking and brilliant. And Hitler's favorite film to boot!
That is me talking to Brian, btw. I should really make a character page for some of these "recurring characters."
I have two one dollar bills in my hand right now. They are money I made off selling a minicomic at the comic book store around the corner. They will not be recirculated!
Let me back up a bit. In January Zero Eight I started working on a minicomic (my first!) called Love Lines #1, under the assumption I'd get around to Love Lines #2. I have yet to. LL#1 were just true stories from my past - some of my first forays into relationships and how they were botched, mostly because I was very young. It wasn't a comic because there were no panels; there was a story to be sure but there was at least one or two drawings per page instead of something like six to eight. Regardless, I did it, I printed it myself and it was awesome.
After putting a few of the comics on etsy, I brought the comic over to the comic shop around the corner (where I occasionally frequent) and they decided to sell it on consignment. Meaning they sell it for 4 bucks and I get 2 bucks. Anyway, for months they didn't sell and that was fine; I didn't expect a comic by a nobody to sell at all. It was up there at least. So I went in last night to pick up the latest Angel, Buffy and Serenity comics (because I am a Whedon NERD) and, for old time's sake, stopped to see how my comics were doing.
One was sold.
HA! I made two bucks! Which I used off my purchase. But I kept two singles (my change) to signify the large step in my life. Then I watched American Idol.
