So come on in. And don't mind the heat. It's (hopefully) just the start of something great.

1. Event One
Well I've done it. I've finally stepped into a whole new universe. Blogging. I guess you could consider this Event One, or the Big Bang. The start of it all.
Whew. Getting warm in here.....
Why did I decide to do this? I dunno. I'm not a Facebook or Twitter'er. Never considered my life that interesting to invest any time in that. But lately I've thought about doing this: making a place where I can post about things I might like and, who knows, things others might like as well. At best, folks might get a kick out of it. At worst, folks don't and it ends up lying by the wayside of the internet superhighway like a /THUD'ed armadillo.
Damn... *fanning myself* ... anyone else getting hot in here?
Anyway, here's a bit about me. I'm single, from Iowa. I already run a few sites online (wonderful places, all of them). I'm a reservations sales agent for one of the major airlines. I like movies, TV, comic books, reading, writing, artwork, music. I'm your general geek, more or less. A sort of renaissance man for the new millennium. As George Carlin put it, I'm ahead of my time; the trouble is, it's only an hour and a half ahead.
I'll sign off this first introductory post with one more bit of explanation. The name of this place. There's a scene in the James Bond movie "Goldfinger" where ol' Double-Oh puts the Shcottish beatdown on his guard and escapes his cell. He gets caught by Pussy 'Why Don't They Make Names Like That Anymore?' Galore. She flips him like a cheese omlette. He asks her "Who taught you judo?" to which she replies matter-of-factly "The gun you took." Sean Connery's expression is priceless when he realizes she wants the gun he snagged from the guard, looking for all the world like he thought she said the Gunutook taught her. Ever since seeing that I've absolutely loved that moment and that name. I always said that if I ever opened a video store or a comic shop that would be the name of it. The Gunutook. Well, neither of those things have happened; but it's too good a name to go to waste. So welcome to The Gunutook. Hopefully it'll bowl you over like a judo flip from a stacked sexy lesbian.
