Minimally Invasive!

Hey Mad Minions!

Yeah, yeah, I know minimally invasive surgery is a real thing… but think about the phrase minimally invasive EYE REMOVAL.

For some reason, I find this hilarious. When I remove people’s eyeballs for my evil experiments, they find it HIGHLY invasive. If they survive.

 

 

After some Chinglish, I wanted to post something great about China (since there are wonderful things about China, just like everywhere).

I am a  huge Superman fan (Superman tends to attract Mad Overlords and evil geniuses for villains) , so the fact I saw this little boy is dressed as the hero makes me happy to see.  What people consider the pinnacles of heroism (and villainy) are eternal, no matter where you are from.

This said from everyone’s arch nemesis, even my own, me.

Stay Mad

Be Good

Excelsior.

Hey Mad Minions,

As I am sure most of you know, Stan “the Man” Lee passed away at 95 today.  My diabolical Mad Overlord heart is heavy. Some may wonder why, I never met the man, so why should I, in this time of selfishness and indifference, care about someone I have never met before?

Because in some ways, Stan was the gent all of us should strive to be.

I know he wasn’t perfect. There are claims that he was arrogant…. but I am looking past that. At his core he was an innovator, a creative genius, and he always out reached to his fans. Any fan who has met the guy said he was friendly and cordial. Not to mention, he was meeting fans and signing autographs almost up until his time of death.

Heck, I probably wont even make it to 95, most likely one of my experiments will turn on me and kill me as Mad Overlord experiments tend to do.

But  think of the effect this man had on pop culture these days. I would make an argument, that more people these days know the Marvel characters then they know sonnets by Shakespeare or the writings of Hemingway.  There was something in his storytelling that was on one hand intellectual (The story of how he came up with the name of the Hulk villain “The Abomination” comes to mind) but ‘down to earth’ enough that appealed to a broad audience (Peter Parker having girl trouble for example).

My mind, while usually overcome by madness, today is touched by sadness as well. We need MORE creative, innovative thinkers these days. People who know how to appeal to the humanity in all of us, instead of just a few.

God Speed Stan.

Excelsior.

STAN LEE

The SK-K-K took my bay-bay away.

Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooody doo! Mad Minions!

Recently I had to take a trip to South Korea to reset my Visa (long story.. I will relay it here some day, just not today – I am just happy to finally get these videos up).  Wish I could have stayed longer, since it was a lot of fun. Met an old friend of mine, who is a very cool gent… I hope some day to come back and we can play some board games.

What is kind of scary is at the time i was in SK (January 4-6) North Korea launched a missile and it went off course and crashed into one of their own cities. Seoul is pretty close to the NK border… but people there did not even bat an eyelash at this news.  Crazy.

So when you came to this page today, I bet you were saying to yourself…. SELF! I wish I knew what the inside of a Korean comic book store looked like?

Here at Mad Overlord Studios, we aim to please!

(Disclaimer: aiming to please void if it does not match our plans of world domination as well as some parts of Utah)

So without further ado, Let’s hear me sniffle endlessly while wandering in yet another country!

An intro!

Three Videos about wandering in a Korean comic book store.

 

Korean comic books store 2

Aaaaand last, but not least… In the center of Seoul at night. You can see the palace in the background.  Yeah, I am still sniffling during this.

 

Okay that’s enough for now. I went to a really great bookstore, but I will show the pictures this weekend (since I am fighting off the flu).

Stay safe! Stay Happy!

EDIT: Okay I am feeling really bad so I am going to send the afternoon loading up the bookstore pics.

First Pic. This is the South Korean subway map.  It looks like a drunken spider web… but in general the subway system runs a million times more efficiently than Beijing.
(The people are more polite as well. Sorry China, but they are.)

The next few pictures are of this road that splits Seoul directly in half.

The next NEXT few pictures is the BOOKSTORE!!!! Man, I spent a lot of $$$ and I could of spent so much more. IN the coming weeks I will be doing book reviews on some of these.

(After all I started this blog to keep after me writing correct?)

 

These last few pictures are of some of the WONDERFUL food I had there. So tasty. I recommend a trip to Seoul for the food alone.

Second to last picture… the subway map was posted clearly in the station. Unlike some places (Boston cough, cough) And the last picture is from when I landed again in China, this guy was putting on his coat and hit me in the side of the head when putting on his coat and then looked away without apologizing.

Just because I am Mad does not mean I have bad manners. Madners. Madders. Maaaaa …
Whatever.

ANYWAY! Hope you enjoyed the SK pics. It was a great trip and I encourage people to visit.
Now I am going to go lay down and try to feel better.

*Sneezes all over the place*
Bleah.
