Yes, for the fourth time since 2012, I'm moving to a new home.  This time, I am escaping Baltimore after four years living there.

So, during this month of April, I'll be moving while also trying to work.  This means a brief hiatus for the podcast.  I'll also need much of May to get my new home in order.  Moving and arranging 47,000 comics and 12,000 movies is a feat of engineering. 

I will return soon.

Hi folks. After an unintentional month's break, the podcast will return later this week. Unexpected concentration on musical projects has kept me away. More on that later.

a couple weeks off

You may have noticed there's been no podcast in a couple weeks, and there may not be one for another week or so.  This has been for mainly two reasons:

1. I have changed jobs, and the time and energy consumed finishing at one job and starting the next (simultaneously!) has left me exhausted.

2. The "election."  I don't usually talk about politics on The Comic Book Attic, so I will leave that to the blog or one of my other podcasts; nevertheless, this recent presidential election was an utter disgusting disgrace.  The outcome has made me feel so sick and terrified for the future... and the thought of doing something fun like podcasting just isn't in me right now. 

Trump is a monster, and I could never support him.  All the talk of unity and moving on is silly because good people don't unite with villains.  Good people fight back against villains. 

I have refrained from mentioning this before because I didn't think he could possibly win, but DC Comics called it long ago when they based the post-Crisis Lex Luthor on a Trump-like business man

and eventually made him president.

But this comparison would be an insult to Lex Luthor, so I'll let that go...

Anyway, this madness has destroyed my faith in humanity quite a bit, so I haven't felt like engaging that same humanity with a podcast.  I'll return when my stomach stops churning.

Cheers...

a little bit of the DCU in Baltimore...

Taken not too far from where I live... all we need is a glimpse of the Newsboy Legion and Superman, and we're set.

Hey, all.

In case you missed the announcement, I'm currently in the process of "moving house," as some folks say.  The upcoming week will be the big finish to the moving and the big start to the unpacking.  I hope to have the house (and internet) in order by the end of the week.  I've recorded several short episodes to cover the weeks I've missed, and they will be mixed and uploaded as soon as I can.

Just a quick note to let everyone know that this week's episode will be late, so there will be two episodes for you next week.  In CBA #156, I'll have a look at some issues of New Mutants.
