One More Reason To Hate "One More Day"

I love JMS' run on Amazing Spider-Man. He humanized Spider-Man, making Peter Parker even more relatable to us after a decade or so of annoying and confusing storylines.

QOTD - Architecture Quotes

Quotes are great because they can distill ideas very efficiently.
Even though famous quotes are very popular, few people manage to create their own personal quote catalog. I am not a quote collector myself, but I always love reading quotes that I found from nearly every media: magazines, newspapers, or the Internet. My favorite popular science magazine has this tradition of ending every article with a more or less suitable quote relating to the article. I find several benefits in maintaining a personal collection of favorite quotes, famous or otherwise, at the very least they keep you entertained.
So here they are, several architecture quotes that I find both inspiring and amusing!

As a fan of the Dutch's national football team, I approve this!

Cool Stuff from My Hometown, part 1

From now on, every once in a while-that is whenever the mood strikes me, I will post something in this blog about interesting stuffs in my hometown. Architecturally speaking, of course.
Bandung, Indonesia is a city adorned with old buildings that-as far as I'm concern-are like fine wine, getting prettier with time.

X spouts Nietzsche

I never know what Professor Xavier of the X-Men's educational background is. 
Is it medicine? Genetics?

Downtime in the park with the New Avengers

Earlier I have stated my love of comic book heroes do something fun and/or recreational inbetween saving the world.
The classic example would be the X-Men playing baseball or what Gail Simone did during her first run on Birds of Prey; Barbara (Oracle) and Dinah (Black Canary) had a girl talk, conversing about...can you guess?

The Flash as a builder (or the return of Silver Age sci-fi)

The Flash #2, which is released about 3 weeks ago (I know, it's a little late. Sorry), showed us the fight between the newly-resurrected Barry Allen and the future version of The Rogues-which apparently are heroes in the 25th century. As always in almost every case with superhuman fights, the civilians take the most suffering. But in this case, they are somewhat compensated, albeit a little...risky. What is it?

Architecture in Oa

I love it when every once in a while, comic book writers remind us that beneath their spandex and awesome powers, our beloved heroes and heroines are ordinary human beings with a day job.
Peter Parker rushes to his photography gig, Clark Kent tries to beat the deadline (he does that, doesn't he?), or just a scene of Bruce Wayne dozes off in the middle of Wayne Enterprise's board meeting. These scenes humanize these heroes and make them easier to relate to us, mere mortals.
