That's right mates, our beloved Dan will be soon packing up and taking his arse from New Zealand to Australia. You all know Dan of course from the coolest blog site in the world on all things sci-fi, comic book and just in general things that under and over weight guys who don't get laid all over the planet love (see blog role). As to the circumstances surrounding this change in his life I'll leave that for him to explain which will no doubt come in the form of a posting at his blog soon. Although I heard a rumor that one of his followers turned out to be this hot 40ish red head from Australia that lives alone in a nice place and is rich and begged Dan to move out there with her. However, I can't confirm that at this time. But if it's true and it turns out she has a twin sister I'll be moving to Australia soon too especially since I recently got my passport renewed.
At one point I asked Dan if he would be able to pass himself off as a local. Apparently that was impossible since he claims his accent will give him away every time. I don't know about the rest of you but the Kiwis and Aussies pretty much all sound the same to me. Both of them have mangled the perfected version of English we speak here in United States of America. I'm just kidn Dan . . . sort of. Let's all give Dan our best heartfelt wishes as he embarks on a new chapter in his life where he will be battling automobile and motorbike riding marauders in hockey masks and assless chaps on the desert wasteland highways of the Australian outback.
wow. Nice to see there's enough love to go around. Sorry I've been MIA these last few months.ReplyDelete
it's all good Craig. i forgot your an early riser cause it's around 6 AM your time. i bet Saturday can't come soon enough for you! can't wait to read Dan's reaction to this posting.ReplyDelete
Ha - the first time I read this I didn't even notice the photoshop job you did on the ol' boomerang up top!ReplyDelete
I guess our accents to you are like Canadian and American accents are to us, pretty similar until you live amongst them - them it's well defined :D
Mind you if I'm battling motor bike riders Mad Max style and dating red heads you have to wonder why I didn't commit to a three year stay a little earlier!
Thanks for the kind words and support mr. Much appreciated!
I find the idea of Dan in assless chaps just a little bit scary, frankly. I think if you go THAT native you might want to take a hard look at yourself, Dan. Just not in a mirror. Although I do think you need a Captain Boomerang outfit. And a wig. Definitely need that.ReplyDelete
i just want to say that Dan is every bit as badass as Bronze Tiger. did i just make a tongue twister? anyways, why do i say that? because Dan could have a mohawk and ride around on a motorcycle wearing a pair of assless chaps at the S.F. Gay Pride Parade (not that there's anything wrong with that) with out there being anything gay about it. i'm not sure if even BT can pull that off.ReplyDelete
Dave, NO ONE can pull off assless chaps. Just sayin'. Has nothing to do with anything. They're just horrid.ReplyDelete
Those are absolutely horrid, and really, anyone using them just chooses not to relly look at them selves.
Dan, Have a nice trip to Australia. I hope you like it there.
You'll probably miss that amazingly beautiful NZ you showed us in pictures, but you'll find new challenges, and that is always good.
Aliera, your understanding of American English in all it's nuances continues to impress me. you actually knew what we were talking about when we started bringing up "assless chaps".ReplyDelete
wow, this conversation went into the shitter fast. I tuned in on friday at work but as usual couldn't post. Then forgot until just now, taking a break from moving furniture around. I'm getting too old for this shit. The furniture part. The assless chaps...that's wrong at any age.ReplyDelete
ok that's it i'm bringing you all out here to S.F. for Halloween this year. you haven't lived life fully until you've seen a bunch of pot bellied middle aged white guys walking around in costumes that make assless chaps look like conservative dress.ReplyDelete
Well, that I can find here, without the halloween costumes :DReplyDelete
I just spent the weekend on a Rock Festival, with people from allover the world and saw some variety from many angles.
Thank god, no assless chaps ;)
come on up here during the summer. We get the Canadians down on Old Orchard beach. A 280 lb. fat hairy Franco guy in a speedo 3 sizes too small for him has scarred for life many a Maine child. Maine is an entire state full of those people you see in the "People of WalMart" viral emails. It can get pretty ugly here, in a Dueling Banjos, Deliverance meets Stephen King kind of way.ReplyDelete
Nice to see all the love(gay or otherwise) for Dan. He's truly worth all the fuss isn't he?ReplyDelete
Bonus cool points to Dave on the brief photo-shop job on the Capt. Boomerang profile page. I actually still own the Who's who w/him in it.
I wish they'd come back, especially w/ all this new DCU garbage reboot they've done.
yeah i used to collect those Who's Who back in the late 80s. i knew they were basically DC's version of the Marvel Universe Handbooks but i still liked em. thanks for the kind words about my photoshop work work i saw your comment also on the Batman vs Bronze Tiger posting. i really enjoy using photoshop to make my blogs visually more unique compared to others. and PS is also the perfect tool for my brand of humor and also for making kick ass art. and yes indeed Dan is worth all the fuss he's a great guy and has a great blog. it's really disappointing when you run into nice blog sites run by people who are kinda dicks or otherwise not very social. there's a few out there like that.ReplyDelete
Hey guys been gone for a min and I come back to Capt.Dan Boomerang. Very cool Dave very very cool. Dan have a great time in Australia and don't let Zartan convince you to get a Dreadnok tatoo.ReplyDelete
Dave I'm going to start a blog man and I want to link your site there. Is it alright? Thought I ought to ask. BronzeTigerandTaskForceElite when I get it together check it out. And how did you get your pictures on the side to go to something else when you click on them?ReplyDelete
yeah that's fine about linking our sites. when you upload a picture in blogger the upload window usually gives you a "link" field. that's where you paste the URL of where ever you want that person to go when they click on the image.ReplyDelete
