Castle Geek to Open in Glorietta 2

Looks like Castle Geek is expanding! You know that new Glorietta section with a bunch of stores from Park Square? I really like that new area - they've got a bunch of electronics stores, a Filbar's, a Neutral Grounds and a Lil's, among other cool shops. Castle Geek is now going to join them.

Come June 1, 2013, Castle Geek will open their second shop at the 3rd floor, unit 350 Neutral Grounds, in Glorietta 2.

This is pretty cool. Even though the original Castle Geek is closer to where I live, I find Glorietta a lot more convenient. I'm there a lot more often, too. Now, you won't have to travel all the way to B-Side to grab your weekly comic books. If Comixs Hub and the other Castle Geek are any indications, they're always well stocked and they always take care of their customers.

Besides comics, they also have hard to find collectibles and toys. They had those Adventure Time toys a few weeks back. Pretty sure they still have them in stock. Every now and again, Castle Geek gets exclusive stuff in stock.

This Saturday, June 1, come over to their new store and join the fun. They'll have a book signing with Rod Espinosa's Steampunk Snow White, Peejay Catacutan's Xenoglyphs, and Andrew Villar's Ambush Omnibus.

Year of the Snake Horoscopes

With the Year of the Snake well upon us, many of us are eager to find out what the future has in store for us, because where the moon is at the time of your birth totally controls your life day by day. Using our super powers of prediction, we will tell you your fortunes for the Snake year. Forget that whole "free will" thing. This predetermined destiny thing is where it's at.

This is how it works. Depending on the year of your birth, you are classified under a certain animal as a label. There are 12 zodiacs altogether and they cycle around every 12 years. This means that you share your destiny with exactly 1/12 of the population of the Earth. Don't try to argue.

DLSU Comic Con

You know, when I was in DLSU, I don't recall there being a Lasallian Media Week but I may just not have been paying attention. Apparently, it is a week long event that showcases the various talents of the University's major media groups. This year, the theme is Responsible Digital Citizenship, which was prompted as a response to the proposed Cybercrime Law. "Think before you post!"

Part of the activities of the Lasallian Media Week is the Student Media Office Comic Convention. I dunno, but I'm kinda sad that nothing like this happened in the time I was there. Apparently, it only started last year. Like all other full blown legit comic convention, there will be comic book exhibits, forums with guest artists (I think I saw a pic with Carlo Pagulayan there, probably from last year), merchandise and display booths - most likely toy collections.

Christmas 2012!

So, the world didn't come to a sudden and abrupt stop. That's a good thing, we get to celebrate one more Christmas. Maybe it's time to let bygones be bygones and start off fresh this coming new year. If these two mortal enemies can play nice, maybe all of us should, too. Life's a little too short to be all grumpy all the time. Chill out and enjoy the ride. Best Christmas gift you can give yourself.

Merry Christmas one and all!
