  1. Congrats on finally arriving at you! It takes some of us a lot longer.

  2. Welcome to the dark side. :)

  3. Great article…I think one of the greatest blessings I’ve received in my 30′s (I’m 37 now) is comfort in my own skin…Like the comfortable pair of sweats you referenced.

    Watch out though…what I’ve learned is women often find a truly confident, decent man pretty irresistible. Be careful not to go breaking too many hearts.

    No capes! I refer you to Thunderhead, Dynaguy, and Splashdown, all of whom met their untimely ends as a result of cape-related trauma.

  5. Mathew,

    I’m wondering what you think of the new DC universe online trailer.
    It’s totally badass. Rather than play the game, it makes me want to see a feature-length movie based on this plot-line:

    Also, I’m wondering if you have been watching the show Comicbook Men.

    • John,

      Yes, I did see that trailer. My brother had sent it to me shortly before the game came out. You are absolutely right in that it is badass. That is what I would love to see out of a Justice League movie if they ever did one. I have also caught a couple of the episodes of Comicbook Men. Good stuff, I’ve always been a fan of Kevin Smith and his movies too. Plus, if I am not mistaken it comes on right after Top Gear US which is another favorite of mine. Of course the Top Gear UK on BBC America is a classic, but seeing the American guys do it now is pretty cool.

  6. Thank you everyone for you kind words of support. It did certainly take a long time to get there but I am comfortable in my own skin finally. It doesn’t mean that there aren’t things that I am working on changing about myself, I just change them because I want to, not because someone else wants me to.
