I’ve been collecting comic books and toys my whole life. When I was in high school I hid my habit pretty well. I actually had a close friend tell me “it’s a good thing you kill it on guitar or you would be getting beaten up on a regular basis”. Yikes!
These days comic books are king.
They rule the box office with a cast created mostly in the 60’s. How awesome is that, to have characters not only stand the test of times, but thrive?
I was lucky and old enough to be there for the release of the very first Star Wars film, A New hope back in 1977. Yep, I’m old. I remember visiting my cousins in Toronto when I was living in a small town called Ingersoll. Both had Star Wars shirts on. One had Chewy and Han, I asked “what is that?”. His reply was, “this is the greatest thing ever!”. At the time, he was right!
I grew up in the arcades.
Sunk a ton of quarters into Ghosts and Goblins and Dragons Lair as the arcade proprietors would spin Nazareth greatest hits on repeat. When the Atari became available then began the end of arcades. Pitfall was the best. Later I would get a NES and discover Mario and his world of awesomeness. Today I love my PS4. My all time favorite new game is Dying Light. I’m a zombie freak.
As a musician I like to support indie artists.
It’s a tough gig. One thing I always like about living in the Oshawa area was the music scene. James Shaw is definitely a gem in the rough from that area. The long time song writer is currently working on his first solo attempt and we will keep you in the loop. For his band stuff, check out Luceo and High Top Society.
