Hello There!

     Fuckin' hell. Where to begin? They say that beginnings are the toughest part of any project. Journey of a thousand miles and all that. Just a disclaimer; I am terrible at keeping up with this type of stuff. Hell I have my own blog that I haven't posted anything to in well over a year! Be that as it may I want you to know that Comicsnut asked me to post a guest blog like three weeks ago and I am just now getting around to do it, because…. well I guess it's because 1: I am procrastinator and 2: I have been horrendously bogged down in school work.
      Right. So I suppose an introduction is in order. I go by the handle @DeathMetalHero on Twitter ( and any other social media site that some idiot d-bag hasn't already taken my name on. Rest assured I am the one and only.) but you can call me Kronos (Take whatever implications from greek mythology you will from that.) I am a Comic Book connoisseur, a Video Game Virtuoso, and a Death Metal Maniac.
     I learned how to read from comics at the age of 3 and have had a life long passion for them ever since. I am a MARVEL ZOMBIE pure and simple. Sure had some Batman comics as well growing up , but I always found Superman and the rest of the DCU VERY boring. (Still do as a matter of fact. HA!) I was always reading Spider-Man, X-Men, and Fantastic Four so I never really cared what the JLA, the Flash, or any other DC charters were doing, and after discovering Ghost Rider and the Punisher it was all over for DC. I guess it's just the way I'm wired, and not much has changed since then. Granted I do read other things (Image, Darkhorse, and Sirius stuff) but the 616 Marvel U is where I have spent most of my time reading comics.
     I picked up my first video game at about 4; Super Mario Bros./ Duck Hunt on the NES. And actually I had played plenty of games on my cousins Atari 2600 prior to that (most notably the original pitfall) but SMB/DH on the NES was the first game and system that was actually MINE. I enjoyed the hell outta that game, but didn't really love video game until I got my copy of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for NES. Yeah I know, "What a horribly hard game for a kid to play!" You're damn right it was hard. So hard in fact that sometimes I would just sit and look at the cover for a while dreaming of the coolness that I was missing out on, until I would finally pop the cartage in and have another go. To this day I don't think I've ever finished that damn game! Didn't matter though, I was hooked on video games from there on out. In fact Currently rockin' a 320gb PS3 and slowly working my way through Uncharted 3 (Slowly because I never really get the chance to play.)
     I grew up in a house where Classic rock and hair metal (Yeah I know. I can hear you all groaning now!) was pretty much always on tap. So as I grew up I would try to find other good rock and roll bands but always ended up listening to the classics. Except for Nirvana I don't listen to any of the other "rock" that I used to listen to. I actually find what passes for "rock and roll" these days a repugnant, idiotic, mundane imitation of what it used to be, but that's a topic for a future blog. I was in my sophomore year of high school and a coworker brought in Fear Factory's OBSOLETE to listen to after closing. Sure it may not be the heaviest album by my standards now, but I was instantly enthralled by the crunchiness of the guitars, the deep boom of the drums, and Burton Bell's vocals. My taste in music quickly changed after that and I was on the look out for anything that was even remotely like that album. And thus my love of metal was born, and has gotten progressively heavier ever since to the point where some of my favorite bands are Fleshgod Apocalypse, Cannibal Corpse, and Beneath the Massacre.
      Well i hope you've enjoyed my first post to Comic Nut's Jar, and if you didn't then I'm sorry you were bored but you did make it to the end so good on you.

My Pull List for November 23, 2011

VERY small week for me this week, which is kinda good considering last week was about $60 and I still haven't caught up! :)

But we all know I'll use the extra money to buy a few more titles that I passed on last week!
God I love Jonah Hex. I love Jjimmy Palmiotti (@jpalmiotti) and Justin Gray. I loved every single 70 issues of the previous Hex series. And I absolutely love this book. Hex and Arkham working together...can you get anymore anti-hero than that?  People, read this book...there's no boobs, no bulging crotches, no missiles shot out of people's ears, no aliens...just good old fashioned story telling.  You will not be disappointed.

This has been a great little arc, with a few minor complaints.  Hawkeye's one of my favorite characters, I know he's always been a little cocky...but I think The Master Hickman is really giving Clint a big head.  Other than that, it's an awesome story tying in very well to Ultimate Ultimates.

Wolverine is in 1,000,000,000 places at the same time. I'm reading this, and I started reading his main title again hoping it would tie in. I'm not reading Scott Summer's version of Regensis because I hate Scott Summers...I'm hoping this works out.

A Sad Day In My Corporate World

Photobucket Last week, the corporate big wigs got the go-ahead from our landlord to put a new roof on our 750,000 square foot building and permission to move their offices from the back of the building to the front, near the windows.

There currently exist workers in small cubes near those windows. They will be moved, cubes added to the area that corporate sits now and a new wing of beautiful offices will be built in that area, closed off from having to look at the cube dwellers, but with views of the parking lot.

That's fine, it's good to be the kings.

However, there's one department consisting of two people I, and most others, happen to hold in high regard. Let's call that department "Baccoutns Flayable". Corporate decided that, because their cubes were in the way of their new real estate, to move the department. Still fine. Until it was decided they were going to move the department to one of our west coast offices in a state we'll call "Dralifornia".

One of the women that worked in Baccounts Flayable has been working here for over 25 years, the other woman for over 30. She's a delight to work with. She's one of those rare users us IT people love. She knows nothing about computers (we don't like them) but she is the sweetest person to walk the earth, and wouldn't say a bad thing about anyone and always has a smile (we like that when you talk to us and say hi).

So, because they were moving Baccounts Flayable to Dralifornia, the woman that had been working here for 25 years plus was brought into her manager's office and given her walking papers. But not before her manager made her friend call the people from Dralifornia and train them for two days on how everything is done.

Anyway, everyone helped clear her cube and helped carry her stuff to her car, hugs were exchanged and promises to keep in touch were made.

She was fine with it, she said. All smiles. She drove away and someone noticed she stopped her car up a little ways. They walked up to her car and she was in tears.

I'd like to wish our corporate members a happy Thanksgiving.

Most Americans Call Newt Gingrich's Comments Regarding Occupy Wall Street As The Truth

This is the quote of the galaxillenium. Newt Gingrinch put into words what nearly everyone (except those that get chills up their legs when they think about Obama) is thinking about #OWS

Of course, google Newt's name today and you would think he was speaking while wearing a KKK uniform, holding up a sign that said kill all Mexicans. The media can't believe someone, other than talk radio hosts all over the country, would say something like that about Obama's class warfare foot-soldiers.

Obama needs these loons, even though he and Wall Street are one in the same, to keep up their "non violent movement". So he can draw comparisons to the TEA Party, call it grassroots and stuff like that. But most importantly, get them to go absolutely fucking sideways and riot when he says the secret code word three times.

Anyway, today, Newt you are the man.

Let me take that for a brief moment to describe Occupy Wall Street. All of the Occupy movement starts with the premise that we all owe them everything. They take over a public park they didn’t pay for, to go near by to use bathrooms they didn’t pay for, to beg for food from places they don’t want to pay for, to obstruct those that are going to work to pay the taxes to sustain the bathrooms and to sustain the park so that they can self-righteously explain that they are the paragons of virtue to which we owe everything.

Now, that is a pretty good symptom of how much the left has collapsed as a moral system in this country and why you need to reassert something as simple as saying to them, "Go get a job right after you take a bath."

Sunday Night Knockers

-Update-The google blog poll is weird now, just comment yes or no. Prove I'm not just talking to myself.

I used to post a few pictures of women I happened to find very attractive.  It was an exploitative beautiful tribute to both young and MILF matured women in various states of undress womanhood.

You may see these little snippets every now and then under a post in the area that says "You might also like:"
Should I bring these back?  I took them down once, when I was going to interview someone in the industry that didn't think the adult content would go over well with people he was trying to get in the business with.  It made total sense, I wanted him to succeed and I didn't want to be a hindrance to him.

So, what so you...shall I bring back SNK? 

A sample of what I mean after the jump...

Some Awesome Windows Tips & Tricks

Copying and pasting is a pain in the ass.  Open two Windows Explorer instances, navigate to each folder, grab a bunch of files and drag and drop them across into the other window.  That sucks, but it sucks even more if all you're doing is moving one single small file.  Yeah, you could just press cut, then paste...but that's still a bunch of unnecessary mouse clicks.

How about simply highlighting the file or files you want to move, right clicking on them and selecting either "Copy To" or "Move To", then just using the menu system to find the folder, click ok and be all done?  It's about a tenth of the time and I don't know how I lived without it:

First, press start, go to Run, type "Regedit".  Back up your registry by going to "File > Export".  Save it somewhere in case something goes wrong (it shouldn't, these are pretty simple) and then click these two files to add them to your menu:

Copy To
Move To

Like I said, this make moving files around so much easier, I don't know how I lived before having these options.  Now that you've added them, simply go to a directory like "My Documents" or something and right click a file.  You'll notice the two extra options there for you.  You love me, it's ok.
