I just recently set up a Twitter account. Not to derail the thread too much, but I find the difference to be quite significant. First and foremost, Twitter is very close to being anonymous - at least compared to Facebook and there really isn't much chance for data mining (especially my use of it in which I just follow Android developers and some news stuff). Facebook is lots of fluff, little substance. Twitter is (again in my use of it) lots of substance, little fluff -- even though I would wager the majority of tweets are of the "just took a crap" variety which is utterly pointless. Twitter is also very passive, which is right up my alley.

I don't want to derail the thread either, but I guess I will anyway.

As a small business owner my efforts on Facebook have resulted in more sales than my efforts on Twitter. But I wholeheartedly agree that Facebook is filled with a lot of fluff.

Anyway, welcome to Facebook OTV!

Twitter is a great place to have fun conversations with cool people, and share your thoughts and projects in cool ways.

Facebook is a vortex that is trying to consume the entire Internet with its dark clutches.

I've always known there is more traction to be gained with Facebook that there is with twitter, I just really like twitter, and really dislike Facebook. I've reluctantly come to the conclusion that I can't achieve what I want without embracing Facebook, and entering that dark vortex.

I agree with you on all points. That's why I finally decided to set up a Twitter account. I will never have a Facebook account as I (personally) have no need for one (I don't have any business/product/etc. to promote).

I'll let this thread get back on topic now. Sorry for the derail.

It's usually surprising when a topic doesn't get derailed around here. no problem ;)

I love ranting about social media anyway.

Loved the SDCC coverage. That zombie run sounded awesome. Can't wait for the next one. In fact, I had come here hoping to find another episode to listen to while I did some homework on the computer this morning. Oh well, can't have everything.

Hey kids, comics!

It's time for another Valiant Comics fun hour with Sean, Chiclo, and 'Veen! (Jonesy couldn't make it due to an inopportune appliance explosion - or Vine plot, we're not sure)

We discuss this month's books, Bloodshot #1, Harbinger #2, and X-O Manowar #3.

OTV 78: Three On Three

Enjoy!

Yes, my gas dryer went kaput literally two hours before our scheduled recording time last week :( Good news is, we bought a new dryer and I was able to hook it up without blowing the house up...lol.

BTW, I just listened to the new episode; well done gentlemen!!! The "Ask Chiclo" segment MUST become a regular staple of the show.

If anyone has any questions for C-Lo, no matter the topic, send 'em in to onlythevaliant@gmail.com and we'll add them to the segment!!! Awesome!

There seems to be some split in official canon. I've always thought it is "entertaimo", others have maintained that it is "entertainmo".

I think it is a user friendly word, and either version works.

Oh, and the Godzilla figure with 'hook hands'? Gigan! My son used to collect them when he was a kid, that's the only reason I know...

Impersonator? I'm pretty sure that was actually Ninjak.

The timeline merely indicates "Deep space". While there was no interlude between his departure and his arrival at the coliseum, perhaps it was a looong time. Maybe that's where the 1600 years went; Shanhara put him in stasis and traveled at near light speed until final approach. :?

I think the best part is at least half of the Ask Chiclo stuff was actually a surprise to me :lol:

to clarify without boring you all with details i have a medical condition that i've been off and on some crazy meds for and I don't remember writing some of those questions. also it's nothing life threatening or anything like that.

So i'm not always that nutty...but I DO have a wacky sense of humor as you just might have noticed just a little bit :lol:
