Not much to talk about at the beginning of this week.  I have the next five day’s pretty much mapped out and think it is going to be a fun one, especially the little diversion on Wednesday where I team up with some of my fellow comic book bloggers, but here on Monday I find myself with very little to “say”.

Of that little I have to say the first involves the look of the Fortress.  I’ve been playing with the design of this blog for awhile now and last week I stumbled upon a theme that had two things I was really looking for; a header and a background.  I wanted this to look like a Superman related blog instead of looking like the standard WordPress theme.  I am something of a Luddite when it comes to the Internet and it is an ongoing miracle that I have been able to maintain the Fortress and my podcasts and all of that stuff.  Thanks to me creating something I am not ready to reveal yet I found the theme I wanted and after playing around in Photoshop I cropped together a background and designed a header that I liked.  The great thing about the header is that I will be designing new ones as time goes on to reflect the seasons and the holidays.  For the moment I wanted the classic S symbol and some text.  I hope you like it.

In other news I did write a review for the Superman Homepage this week.  Superman/Batman #76 came out last week and as I am the regular reviewer of that title I read the book and wrote down my thoughts.  You can find that review here.  Be sure to leave some comments, either here or at the Homepage.

And that is it for today.  I have some firm plans for this blog and you’ll be seeing some of those in the next few weeks.  I have a big project that I will be embarking on soon and once that is well under way I’ll be ready to announce it.  I don’t want to say too much right now but if I can pull it off it’s going to end up being pretty big.

Tomorrow: YouTube Tuesday!

Before stumbling upon this via YouTube I had never seen it before.  I had heard of the short but I don’t remember it being part of the Sesame Street I watched as a kid.  Then again it aired a few years before my time with that series, so there’s that.

Still, kind of interesting to see.  I almost get the feeling that Superman was letting the storm damage the ship so he could make his point.

But maybe that’s just me.
