Buck Rogers book brings back memories

Filed under: Uncategorized — doughaslam @ 9:48 am

When I was a kid, my big nerd pleasure was getting big books of classic comic reprints out of the library: Superman, Batman, Flash Gordon- and this one, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. My mother-in-law picked this up for my son at an estate sale, unaware that I would go crazy for it myself.

The books spans the life of the daily- and color Sunday- comic strip from 1929-1946. It doesn’t include the 1950’s strips by Ray Bradbury, but he does write the foreword.

I look forward to reacquainting myself with Buck, Wilma and Killer Kane, and showing my son as well.

Any other Buck Rogers fans out there?

Why so quiet on the blog?

As if you cared, dept:

Well- aside from just being too sick to have energy for a Social Media Top 5, the energy I do have is devoted to moving this blog to hosted WordPress. More soon, but the great news– to me anyway– is that my new URL will be, through the magic of timely expiration of domain ownership (sorry, talented woodworking artist Doug Haslam of Calgary)!

More to come soon, though postings might be sparse until the new domain is up.

By the way– I am aware of the “WordPress for Dummies” book, but is there a “WordPress for Completely Useless Morons” book? That would be a lift for me.

Autographed CD – a nice bonus for the fans

Filed under: music, Uncategorized — Tags: — doughaslam @ 11:29 am

As readers of my blog saw recently, I am a fan of a semi-obscure rock group called The Shazam. When I wrote that earlier post, I realized I did not have one of their CDs, called “Rev9” for their more-interesting-than-I-thought-it-would-be cover of the Beatles’ “Revolution #9.”

I was happily surprised to see that, when the CD arrived, it was autographed by Hans Rotenberry, lead singer and songwriter of the group. Very cool– unexpected. Did the Web site say they were autographed? I had no recollection, but looking back, it did say that. Why wouldn’t any independent musician– or heck, even a famous one — do that, going the extra mile for the fans for just a small amount of effort?

Anyway, this CD is going right next to my autographed copy of The Move‘s “Shazam” CD (obviously, the Move was an inspiration for the band “the Shazam). For that story– it was autographed by the singer, the late Carl Wayne. I bought it on eBay, but got a great story from the seller about working backstage at a show by the hollies, for whom Carl Wayne was singing at the time. Nice to have the story behind something like that.
