Title: Back....with a vengeance!

Ahhh, the sun and the beach. My summer vacation was quite a long one, spanning well over a month of time, so it came to me as a surprise when I was given an opportunity for 10 more days to soak up the ray of suns, an opportunity I gladly took.
The thing was that I had to take care on my own of our apartment complex(a little money making project that the cosa nostra took up a few years ago and it turned into quite a pleasing financial experience for yours truly) since the parent units could not spare any more time to take care of it.
Naturally, I went there, enjoying what little sun September still has. However, I was not informed that one of the tourist families within the said apartment complex will be a pack of Polacks assembled from a male, a female(pregnant), older son and two impossibly annoying, pissing-in-my-garden while I water the flowers brats who know not a word of english, croatian or italian language but speak their gibberish just fine.
Using my incredible diplomatic skills I managed to endure and to delicately say to the father of the family that it is not "okay" when his son pisses in the roses that are already half dead.
But all in all, I endured and now I am back, only to find I scored quite well in the last tournament. Go team Croatia!
Adventure games of yore always intrigued me, and people can see that from the majority of my, granted small, library of reviews. Alas, the genre is all but dead in the today's world, but there is still hope that it will rise once again from the ashes like a phoenix! The best examples for the said ressurection to take place are games such as "The longest journey" which had a sequel printed out recently(which I really need to obtain), "Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy", a game that really fascinated me all the way to the last 20 or so percent of the game where it lost all sense and just seemed completely random(not to mention some characters completely lost any value in the story), and the Rule of rose game that is the latest edition in the adventure game. While the first review on this site for it was not too kind, I still hope it will fulfill my expectations.
Now that I am back, I can also get back on reading Spider-man comic(and perhaps start studying as well on a less important note). So far it is pretty good of a magazine(got to the middle of the seventies with it's issues so far), altough I can't say I like Spidey as much as I did the members of Fantastic Four(Ben Grimm forever!). However, if there is a character I can mention, then it is J.Jonah Jameson, so far my favorite supporting character of the Marvel Universe and perhaps the best Spidey char so far. I never read many Spidey comics in my youth but I do remember that JJJ is always the same, no matter what the age of the comics.
Always a cynical, web slinging hater. In the movie he was quite well portrayed by TK. Simmons, which is strange considering that the said actor is a very buff, and more importantly bald guy who I got used to screwing people in the arse(literally) and having a swastika tattooed on his entire body in a great series from HBO called Oz. Watch if you didn't.

As a Ben Grimm fan, you'll be sad to know that the Ever Lovin' Blue Eyed Thing left the country because of Civil War, and the FF are probably going to be disbanded for a while. ;_;

It matters not. That is the one hundredth or so time they disbanded. Ben Grimm is, I presume still as rich as Bill Gates so he can take some time off.
