I can't believe I did it again!!! I think I just have too much going on and too many other blogs. I'm still trying to figure out which ones are working best for me. So... what's been going on...
Well, the economy is sorta sucking, but we're hanging in there. I keep thinking if I could sell 50,000 t-shirts either via Super Soap Fans or One Smile Can Change The World we would have it made. What sort of shirt would you buy? Maybe some great gimmick that everybody would want to take part in?
We've been doing more consignments on eBay lately! I love consignments! Especially the vintage kind! Check out www.mickholly.com to see what we have left on auction!
Mick will be signing with DC Comics again soon. He took a detour over at Marvel, but got a call from DC right after. Marvel is cool, but Mick is a diehard DC fan through and through! The Joker Dark Night hardcover is finally finished (it only took a year!) and will be out in October. They had hoped to get it out this month for the latest Batman film, but it didn't work out that way. I guess it will be out for the video release.
San Diego Comic Con is this month and Mick is looking forward to chatting with fans. He loves to meet new people! If you go by Artist Alley, please bring him some cool SWAG. He rarely gets to walk around, so it will mean a lot to him! Sodas, bottled water and pizza is also greatly appreciated. LOL.
Gen just finished up a really fun science camp where she learned about amusement park rides, circus feats, 1960 pop art, Egyptology and crime scene investigation! She loved it all! She's also been taking piano lessons and has been loving them as well. We're hoping to win the HGTV Dream Home next year so we can have a real piano in our house.
Holly's latest obsession is Damian Millhouse Spinelli on General Hospital. I am going to create a website for "The Jackal" similar to my Zander and Zoe sites (all found at www.supersoapfans.com). For those of you non-GH fans... Spinelli is yet another totally offbeat soap opera character. He came onto the show in 2006 as a cyber-geek hired by a rival mob boss to create incriminating evidence on a jump drive. Spinelli (aka The Jackal, ace of cyberspace) ended up joining forces with the "good mobsters" and has been a permanent fixture on the show ever since. He has an incredible way of speaking, like he just walked out of a Dungeons & Dragons video game. Currently Spinelli and Maxie are one of the hottest supercouples on daytime TV right now (even though they're just best friends)! They've been dubbed "Beauty & The Geek". The photo below was from a fantasy sequence in which Spinelli imagines himself as a "Sam Spade" type detective and his sultry siren, "the wounded blonde one" as he refers to Maxie.
The hacker and the hitman aka Damian Spinelli and Jason Morgan. The odd couple of GH. "Grasshopper" and his master "Stone Cold". LOL!
