Nerd Day

Nerd Day

May 6, 2012

Many of you know me as a big bench presser, but most of you don’t know that I am a giant nerd.  So I went with a fellow Nerd, Josh Hunt, to Edwardsville, IL on Saturday May 5 to watch ‘The Avengers’ at the AMC Theater.  Mutual friend Lonelle also went with us.  She is in love with Chris Evans.

We went to the 9:40 AM showing.  NOT PM…AM.  Thats how hardcore we are.

The movie was great.  It was a really good time.  I won’t share any spoilers because people who do that are lame.

I was very impressed with the Hulk.  Previous movies illustrated him terribly.  This movie did the Hulk justice.

Some of the Avengers had more face time than others.  But thats ok.  If they tried to evenly distribute this face time between all Avengers, the story would have likely sucked.  It was interesting how they brought the team together, and when they did, it was phenomenal!  I am really looking forward to more Avengers movies.

After the Avengers, we went to Cleveland Heath.  A delicious restaurant that served brunch until 1pm.  I had their biscuits and gravy with extra bacon.  They were cheddar style biscuits, the gravy was thick and spicy, eggs over easy, and THICK cut bacon.  Coffee was hot and strong.  Lonelle, Josh and I had some really good conversation on ‘The Avengers’ and independent film making.  Lonelle is looking to creating an independent film and is wanting to start production very soon.

After Cleveland Heath, Josh and I went to Free Comic Book Day at Heroic Adventures.  We met up with Manager Drew and he caught us up on the comic book business.  I got my three books and bought the second graphic novel of ‘The Walking Dead’.  There were some sketch artists in the shop drawing requests of favorite superheroes.  I asked the guy to draw Hulk bench pressing.  He looked perplexed.  I showed him a video of one of my bench presses and he used it for framing the sketch.  It cost only $5 to draw and he did a real kick ass job of drawing it.  An epically bearded store rep named Drake introduced himself to me and asked if I wanted to learn how to play heroclix.  I took him up on his offer.  In ended up being a really cool strategy game that has a slight learning curve.  Kind of like chess with characters that have individual traits and powers.  Hard to explain in a short blog post.  But if you are interested, click here.

After all this went down, I met up with Beth and we went to Sakura in O’Fallon, IL for Sushi.  It was an awesome day!
