But I am le tired…

…Well have a nap then fire z missiles!

If you don’t know what I’m talking about you have to go to www.iamletired.com  It’s an old site, but still a classic.  It sort of reflects my week… everything went to poop.  I got some huge sinus infection from mold in the vents at our school (from one of the science teacher’s lessons) and it all but incapacitated me.  I was still able to work, but when I went home I hit my bed like a sack of (insert generic heavy blunt object)’s.  Therefore, you got nothing out of me.  I am le sorry.

It also brings me to something I heard on The Ring Has Chosen (episode 59 I believe), where the Lost Hemisphere guys were lamenting the end of the Vs. blog.  They had some good points (there’s a reason they’re the best blog), but their biggest and best idea was consolidation.  There are many of us that only put up content weekly (less than that when mold strikes).  If were to combine a couple blogs here and there we would double the content and relieve deadline stress off each other.  Sounded like fabulous advice to me, so I’m throwing myself to the masses.  If anyone out there wants to combine blogs I would be a big proponent.  I’ve been begging for guest writers from day one, but this is a step farther in a very right direction.  If you’re interested, reply to this thread or drop me an e-mail at scottkthompson@maktoob.com!

Don’t worry though, I’ll still try to bring weekly content even if I have to remain a solo act.  I am already putting the finishing touches on this Wednesday’s article so you better get your tickets early 😉

See you then!

PS: To the Lost Hemisphere guys… Summer of Love rocks.  You make me waste my valuable prep hours reading your articles because I simply can’t wait until I get home.  You definitely deserve another Blog of the Month title!


The Chosen One

The Ring may have chosen Hal Jordan of Vs. Corps banner fame; but he certainly isn’t the only chosen one out there.  That’s right, I’m talking about Buffy Summers of Sunnydale California, er… formerly of Sunnydale California.  It kind of imploded in the last season of the TV show.  Luckily for me though, the story lived on in one of my favorite mediums: Graphic Novels!  In my book, that’s all you need to get the Vs. TCG treatment.  After all, how cool was the Hellboy expansion.  A small set like that would be perfect for Buffy and Co.  In fact, I once made a thread about it on Vs. Realms.  I think it was the only thing I’ve ever been “repped” for.  Here’s the link: Continue reading

Mega Weekend – Great Success! (Silver Age)

So I managed to actually make it to a Mega Weekend for once… and it was fantastic!  A couple of friends of mine (Paul and Eric Madden) accompanied me on the long journey from Minneapolis to Chicago – a whopping six and a half hours.  We got there on Friday too late for the Silver Age tournament, but it gave us some time to practice for the next couple of days.  This was practice we all desperately needed considering none of us had played in a tournament since Indy 2007.  My choice for Saturday morning’s Silver Age tournament was a Shiloh Norman-based deck.  I wanted to build the Team Superman deck that I had written about a couple of weeks ago, but I didn’t have all the rares for it yet.  I decided instead to build the Spider-Friends version I talked about in the first installment of my “It’s a Miracle!” two-parter.  To flesh out the deck I took elements from Dan Debenham’s deck that top-eighted at the last Mega Weekend.  Here’s the build:
