I have a confession to make.
I am a comic book geek.
Not just a comic book geek, but a sci-fi geek et al.
I love nothing more than the escapism of watching a spaceship/metahuman/mutant and any other kind of silliness fly/change shape/save the world/destroy mankind in almost any form.
Books, films, tv shows, toys and yes... comics.
I own and read and collect comic books.
I have spent a stupid amount of money over the years on what amounts to a load of pretty pictures of men and women in tightly clad latex, flying running and grappling with each other in all the colours of the rainbow.
I could try and justify my childish hobby with quips of how they are an investment for the future as collections of stories can fetch $$$ or even £££ in the right market.
I could pass off excuses about how good the stories are and how not all comic books are about superhero’s and some are very dramatic works of art with horrors and love stories and twists and turns and cliff hangers galore.
But in the end they are cartoon books.
But I am not ashamed of this hobby. No sir-ee.
It’s just another layer to mysterious onion that is me.
However, that’s not what I wanted to talk about today.
Because I read comics I often find that I feel that I want or even need in some cases my own theme tune.
|Dur Dur Duuur!!|
Superman has one.
Batman has one as well.
Even Spiderman has his own Spiderman tune and he is rubbish.
I was thinking of trailing one out here on my blog. One that would play out whenever people came along and read my thoughts.
Unfortunately, I am the wrong kind of geek. As a comic book geek I am incapable of being a computer geek (it’s some unwritten law or something) and therefore am unable to figure out how or even if it is possible to have a fanfare blare out automatically.
Therefore I humbly ask you all, next time you read my blog please can you all hum the following tune to the best of your ability.
Dum-dum-dum- dadadadada daaaaaaaaaa dum dum. Dum-dum-dum- dadadadada daaaaaaaaaa dum dum Dum-dum-dum- dadadadada daaaaaaaaaa dum dum Bada bada papapapa (wooooooh!)
It sounds better out loud than written down trust me.
Oh yes, I just want to let you all know that Mrs H has been collecting X-men books long before she snared me into her little trap and for many years before they even thought of making the films... she just so happens to love Hugh Jackman as well.
