Sit tight guys

Hi guys. Just letting you know that I’m:

and will resume updating my LP and this blog shortly. By this time tomorrow, God willing, my thesis will be done. Not out of the woods then, I have to catch up on all the grading I DIDN’T do while I was finishing it, and I owe a friend a playthrough of “Revenge of Meta-Knight” from Kirby Superstar. Until then, your continued patience is appreciated, and new posts and videos should be forthcoming by the end of next week if not sooner. πŸ˜€

Also: if you’ve got a particular request for a blog topic, let me know. I’m not short of ideas–I have more in the ‘draft’ bin than I could write in a month–but I’m more than willing to entertain suggestions, too. Y’all deserve something for being so patient!


ECCC wrap up (this counts as a post, right?)

Hey guys! Sorry to drop off the face of the earth (again). Hopefully I’ll be able to get another post, along with some more HL videos, up this week. Until then, feel free to read about Hawk’s adventures at ECCC last weekend:

Day 1

Day 2 (part I)

Day 2 (part II)

Day 3

I also have a review of last week’s Wonder Woman #608 out, for the curious. For what it’s worth, the book no longer seems determined to destroy the character and everything she stands for. Which is a positive step.

New Year’s resolution: a post a week! Really!

So I’ve been rather delinquent posting here (perhaps you’ve noticed.) However, I’ve been inspired by WordPresses’ posting challenge for 2011–make a post a week, for the duration of the year. (They also have a post a day version, but I think we all know that I would fall behind on that one faster than I could type.) So! We’ll see how it goes. Expect my first “official” post by the end of the weekend. (Which won’t be about Half-Life, since that’s *all* I’ve posted lately, but I promise I haven’t forgotten the HL fans out there.)

Note that this doesn’t mean that I’m LIMITING myself in any shape or form to a post a week…my pie-in-the-sky goal is three a week. We’ll see how it goes though.

Also, if you’re reading this and feel inclined to comment…I’ll give you a choice. I have two non-HL articles in the works, one on Batman, the other regarding D&D. If anyone (or multiple people) post their preference in the comments, I’ll do whichever more people request. Otherwise, I’ll be Hawk’s Choice. πŸ˜‰

An apology, an explanation, and another apology

Hey faithful readers,

Despite what you may think, this blog is not abandoned. Really. I keep saying that I know, but it really is true. Here’s the thing: for the last month I have been frantically preparing and training for LDAC–the Army’s Leadership Development and Assessment Course–a training camp that all Army cadets being commissioned through ROTC must complete. Between that and my comic reviewing and YouTube solving obligations, this blog has kinda fallen by the wayside. And since I have to leave on Monday for LDAC, and won’t return until August, it will continue to be silent for a little bit longer. But fear not! I have part 2 of the “Final Fantasies I Have Loved (FF I) almost done and about to go up, and when I return, I’ll hopefully be able to catch my breath and get to work on some more good articles (specifically another D&D mini one.) I’m also going to try and get an article about Wonder Woman and her new look up before I go, but that’s time dependent, so we’ll see.

Until the FF article goes up though, the latest comic reviews:

Deadpool Team-Up #893

Deadpool #23

Kill Shakespeare #2

Wonder Woman #44

Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth #11

Vengeance of the Moon Knight #9

Joker’s Asylum II: The Riddler

Captain America #606

Secret Six #22

Deadpool: Wade Wilson’s War #1

Deadpool #24

I return–bearing comic book reviews!

Yep, I have returned safe and sound from the wilds of the Southwest, and have successfully managed to visit Roswell, NM without being abducted by aliens, and spy on Area 51 without being shot–and I won $40 in Vegas playing Blackjack to boot!

Now don’t worry, you’ll be getting a full report (of all the cool alien/sciencey nerd parts) of the trip shortly, along with another Half-Life installment (and some written commentary to catch is up on all the episodes I’ve posted too.) For the time being, enjoy latest comic reviews:

Kill Shakespeare #2

Deadpool #23

Deadpool Team-Up #893

Happy Star Wars Day everyone!

And May the 4th be with you πŸ˜€ .

In honor of the day (and the fact that a major school project is finally out of my hair), you will be treated to two updates tomorrow: another Half-Life update, and a post reminiscing about the awesomeness that was the original Final Fantasy for the NES. To tied you over til then (and as a thank you for your patience with me as I slog through these last few weeks of the semester), here are links to the comic reviews I’ve done for WCBR since the last update:

Secret Six #20

Action Comics #888

Deadpool Team-Up #894

Kill Shakespeare #1

Deadpool: Merc With a Mouth #10

Blackest Night: Director’s Cut

Wonder Woman #43

Captain America #605

Enjoy, and keep an eye out for updates tomorrow!
