Wassup.
I'm Clyde Talley aka PFunkJAzz, I'm old; real old. Still, I've been reading comics off and on since Marvel debuted. I'm quite happy with my inner geek.  I was on the board when it first appeared, but went to lurker mode as it went through as number of changes and the BP series got caught in all those crossovers.the forum as time comes along. I hope everyone is well and having a great weekend.
Location: Bay Area

Vocation: Former Mainframe COBOL Programmer making the switch to CISCO Network Engineer (pun very definitely intended).  In the meantime, doing warehouse work to keep the bills paid. CCNA certification exam to be scheduled in late spring, then I go from there. I own some real estate, so I'm a bit of a slumlord, but I insist tenants call me "The Man" cuz I'm keeping them down.   ;D

Education: BA form UC Davis back in 79 in History.  Learned all the COBOL JC CICS VSAM stuff throug the Urban League in Los Angeles andI worked in the field for more than 20 yrs but the post Y2K technology shift left me in tarpits with the dinosaurs.  ;D Currently enrolled at commuity college for CISCO Networking Parts ! - IV.

Long Term Goals: Staying out of jail.  ;D

Short Term Goals: Stay out of jail. 8)

Biggest Regret: Turned down a job with City of LA cuz Iwas making 3x that as a contractor.  I'd give my right leg for that "cut" in pay.

Biggest Regret (Now): Trying to get a  bailout.

Likes: Comics - Right now I'm only collecting the Dark Horse adaptations of Robert E Howard's Conan, Kull and Solomon Kane.  I'm pursuing story arcs in Black Panther, Captain America and maybe Daredevil and Hellboy in TPB.  I have no real interest in mainstrean superhero series, but I wll dig into a lead or new character or guest star who is non-white.  Ultimately, if a writer is hot I try to join in for the sizzle.   

Movies: I'll see any comics/SF/fantasy on the opening weekend. If it's "big news" I try to go IMAX

Music: I dig jazz funk reggae rock and blues, but have no real interest in hip-hop. My real big interest is black rock bands like Living Colour King's X, Fishbone Ben Harper and of course Parliament-Funkadelic. i go to many shows and concerts in the LA and Orange County areas

Location:  So Calif in the LA/OC area, but based in the Inland Empire.

Dislikes: Smooth jazz, vocoder/autotune key-tar, keyboard bass, fake horn arrangements and e-drums.

Hey everybody.


I just wanted you all to know that I am having such a blast here at the house of Reggie X.


But it is about time that I introduced myself personally so that you know that I am not hiding behind an internet name and not taking responsibility for my off the wall posts.


My real name is Iran Harris (Pronounced ear-in)

I like comic books

I'm a personal trainer by profession

I am from Chicago but now live in Los Angeles

My favorite ice cream is chocolate

I like thread posters who are not afraid to cry

I love summer nights and...


I'm sorry what was I talking about?


In all seriousness if I offend anyone with my brashness it is probably on purpose so don't take me too personal.



As they say on Soul Train...


LOVE... PEACE... and... SOOOOOOOOUL!

Hello everyone.  I was introduced to these forums by BarbaraB, my Philosopher Queen (Plato was too misogynistic to include that role in his Republic).  I probably won't post much, but when I do, I hope to contribute something worthwhile to the discussion.

Thanks so much for the warm welcome guys!

Bro. Vic........ thanks!

akumatrunigga...... not from Baltimore, actually from the DC burbs, but have been in Charm City for a minute now.

Bro. Hudlin..... thank you! (that means alot) but I dare not take credit for the artwork. My specialty is direction/writing/concepts..... I run with a team of some of the most gifted artists around. They make me look good!  :)  The piece I posted was a collab effort between Bro. Stanley Weaver (lines) and Bro. Mshindo Kuumba (liquid colors).... I look forward to building some great working relationships here as well.

Peace!
