Avast, I've Run Aground!

Happy Memorial Day! This is the day we Amadusians honor those brave soldiers who fought and died for our freedom against the Tyrants of Masculon, over five hundred Earth-years ago. Just imagine... two hoards of brawny, hairy, bearded, half-naked and well-oiled men grappling with each other in a surging, seething mass!

...Sorry, my mind kind of wandered there for a sex.. er, I mean, "sec." Aannnyway, the men of Amadus managed to kill every macho male of Masculon, profoundly changing their planet's culture for all time! The world is known nowadays as "Femnaz."

Sadly, as Rainbow Girl steered my ship, the HMS Exquisite, to the cemetery satellite of Shanghalla, we ran afoul o' a solar squall the likes o' which I never seen in all me days a-sailin' the cosmic seas! Th' demon gust pitched ol' Brigadier Blockade an' his noble vessel ass o'er tea kettle ag'in the rocky shoals o' an asteroid belt! All o' me drawin' supplies were-- BLAZES! *click* GODDAMN this pirate voicebox module! A Titanian biker karate-chopped my windpipe in a tavern brawl (it's like he knew all my moves before I could even make them!) and ever since, the darn thing's been acting all haywire. As I was trying to say before... in the crash, my art supplies went "overboard" through a damaged airlock and are even now floating somewhere in the inky void. Also, com systems are malfunctioning, so posting (and commenting to your comments, MaGnUs) this week might be a little spotty. I'll do what I can.

Fun fact: Yesterday (in your time period) my old roommate/only source of financial aid, Jeremy Rizza, finally moved into his new townhome! Amusingly, the first-time homeowner wouldn't have his internet hooked up until the following Thursday! Isn't that a scream?

And now, the historic Amadus/Masculon battle, as pre-enacted by Archie Andrews and Jughead Jones.

"commenting to your comments, MaGnUs"

Wow! I've been mentioned in a post!

Blockade Boy said...

Yup! I intended that remark as good-natured ribbing, but I was worried after I published it that it might come off as jerky. I'm glad you didn't take it the wrong way.

MaGnUs said...

Nah, I know you were talkin in jest, matey.

But really, do I post too many comments?

MaGnUs said...

Oh, BTW, I was talking about some fellow Legionnaires of yours who seem to enjoy guys instead of ladies (Element Lad and Dream Boy), and I gave you a shout out on my latest post at my own blog.

Look! Archie has a beard!

Also, he has some hair growing on his chin.

MaGnUs: No, no, you're great! There's no such thing as "too much commenting" (when it's not robo-spam, that is). And thanks for the shout-out!
