this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Should be a win. Should.
We've been through favorite songs, television shows, and probably others I'm missing, but what were or are your favorite comic books? What era were they from. Also, what were some of your favorite ads from the back, and how did it turn out if you ordered something from one of those ads?
My favorites, and this is from the 1960s were Archie and Richie Rich, none of which do I think would be worth much even if I had kept them. My brother was into army related ones, so I read a lot of those as well. If those had any context at all, they were always WWII related. I did once order what I thought was a book of 1001 magic tricks for one dollar. What it ended up being was a catalogue that you could order (and pay for) different magic related items. Was I ever disappointed. It was a good lesson on caveat emptor which I suppose is better learned young and without a large outlay involved.
So what comic books have you read? What ads do you remember? Did you every buy anything from the ads?
Is anyone else out there in MGoBlogdom watching the British Open? Some amazing golf being played in this rain-soaked tournament, they're finally getting in the final round of this Golf Major (due to weather delays on Friday, everything was pushed back a day).
Adam Scott just tapped in for a birdie to tie Zach Johnson for the lead at -15, Jordan Spieth, in his attempt at golf's Grand Slam is in a 3-way tie at -14, and several other golfers are within striking range at -10 or better.
Normally, being 5 shots back with half a round to play would all but eliminate anyone that far back, but with the windy, rainy conditions on The Old Course, anything goes. The weather has gotten much worse over the last half-hour, so the final few groups have to now deal with far-less-than-ideal conditions from here on out. The final pair, BTW, is now on the 7th hole.
I really like rock and roll which seems to be a dying genre lately as 95 percent of what people listen to is now rap or country. My favorite decade for music would have to be the 1960s with the 70s and 80s following closely behind. I have always liked Hungry by Paul Revere and the Raiders, Magical Mystery Tour by the Beatles, Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones, and Somebody to Love by Jefferson Airplane. What are some of your favorite 60s songs?
