I added Waga Na wa Nero & Grey Digital Target to my queue.  I also caught up with the last few Oglaf strips and discovered some of Brandon B.'s hilarious Slipshine comics. I queued up a bunch of Kyle Baker comics including his infamous Plastic Man run, and picked up the first three issues of Comeback.  I fnished them this afternoon and realized that this was the depth and story I wanted out of Looper.  I might try to queue up the two Scott Smith novels/movie adaptions: A Simple Plan & The Ruins.  Thanks to Jordie on the heads up for that.

This afternoon at about 1pm I fell into an hour A.D.D. digression.  I was tweeting about some new comic concepts, then stopped to do some visual research for a character.  From there I traversed Alias, J.J. Abrams shows, 24, the 1980's, the 1970's, diverted myself to twitter, found out that Kelly Sue DeConnick is working on the new Ghost series, which brought me back to my earlier tweets.  By then my focus was so devastated that I defaulted to following links from twitter into whispy jetees of irrelevance.  I listened to some Coheed and Cambria for a bit while trying to refocus.  January is almost over, one more month go until Winter is over and Spring begins.  In another month I might be moving into a new apartment, my whole world rearranged, mostly for the better.  Next week I'll be trying to participate in Hourly Comics Day for the third year in a row, and then focusing on packing up my life.  So my focus is on making it through February with very few hangups and focusing on some big productivity in March.  Gotta dream big.
