Damn Write: Fruit Bars

Memories of some snacks!

I was cruising around online the other day when I stumbled on a video of an old add for Fruit Corners Snack Bars from back in the ’80s. Man, did that bring back some memories! Those were done by the same people who did Fruit Rool Ups back then, except these were jellied fruit done up in think bars of sweet goodness. There was Strawberry, Grape, Orange, and a bunch of different flavors. I can’t even remember them all.

           Back in the day when I was much younger, I remember sitting down with a stick and munch away when I was watching VHS tapes or something I had rented from our local video store. This was before I was a pro wrestling fan so most of the tapes I watched were episodes of GI Joe or something from Looney Tunes. I wouldn’t get into the good stuff to watch for a few years, mostly from Home Vision Video during that time. We had a working VCR back then, ran that machine for a long time until it crapped the bed a number of years ago when I was recovering from back surgery. Still lasted quite a while.

           But Back to Fruit Bars. I remember them not bring as complicated to handle as Fruit Roll-Ups. Fruit Bars were just as sweet but they weren’t difficult to handle. Just open up the wrapper and take a bite. Fruit Roll-Ups you had to unwind and that was if they didn’t stick to the wrappers halfway during unwinding them. Who cares about that unwinding crap with those Fruit Bars? Those were simple and easy to snack on for a kid like me,  back in those days.

           Seeing that ad makes me also remember when they tried those Fruit and Creme Fruit Bars where they had the fruit part that made them so yummy but they tried mixing in some streaks of cream in them and I remember as a kid trying one and HATING it. Those things were disgusting and whatever they used for that creme filling tasted like it had gone bad. That was it for those and those fruit and cream bars didn’t last long after that. Of course, looking back on them now, giving up on those was probably for the best for me. Those couldn’t have been the healthiest for me. They were full of God knows what kind of sweeteners. Adding that nasty creme to it didn’t help matters. Heck, the snacks I munch on NOW probably aren’t that great for me either but I gotta have something right? I have starved myself (accidentally) before and I’d rather have SOMETHING in my stomach, even if it is loaded with sugar and who knows what else, then go on an empty stomach make myself sick. That hasn’t changed. I suppose if I get too nostalgic about Fruit Bars I can find something else that tastes just the same. I’ll probably find something yummy eventually.

Starbolts #503: To the Spirit World

Jack, Sara and Crystal are about to embark on a journey that will change their lives! They’ll be meeting with the grandparents they never met. Before they get the chance, they will have to encounter other spirits who may want to have a talk with our three Starbolts. This is sure to be an emotional journey because, if you recall, all four grandparents died before their grandchildren were born. This mini-arc will be full of tender moments. 

Jack’s going to want to talk to Soldier Six. His story will be the first as he is the oldest. Sara and Crystal will follow afterward and then the Whitefox wills will ultimately meet up with their grandparents. It should be a fun ride! Stay tuned!

Damn write: VOTE!

I’ve been feeling kind of sick lately. I think I haven’t been eating enough.  It doesn’t seem to be getting any worse and if I just sit down and actually eat something I wouldn’t be prone to these bouts of dizziness. A voice in my head wakes me up every morning and in my head tells me, “Hey! Go get a glass of milk or something like Toast or something for breakfast!” It is a pretty convincing voice to wake up to!

 Seems I am having some computer issues as well, I don’t have a lot of money right yet but there may be some coming my way in the future if state politics go in my favor. After all these issues I’ve had, maybe it is time to upgrade my computer a bit and make sure I can still do things online like continue my job!

            Not much going on outside of that though. Outside writing for work, I sent another email to someone to look at my novel again. I know I am probably inviting another bad time of it, but I gotta keep on trying. SOMEONE will carry that book, it is going to take a while to make that happen.

The Presidential election is coming up and like many, I filled out an absentee ballot and mailed it in. You all probably don’t care who I voted for but let us just say I had thought of voting for myself again. Then I remembered I am not running for President of the United States this year so that wouldn’t do any good. Then again when I DID run for president It didn’t make that much of an effect and we got dealt with 4 years of Trump Bullshit.

            BUT for voting and who I am voting for means very little to anyone else. What is important is that you VOTE coming up soon or like me, you are filling out an absentee ballot and mailing it in. Whatever you do, vote and show your opinion about the state of the Country. If you want to put in a vote for a write-in candidate GO FOR IT! This isn’t like trying to pick a winner at the Kentucky Derby or something and you won’t get a big pay off depending on who you vote for. This is about who you want to run things around you. The City, State, and even the Country. If you do not like where things are right now, vote for someone else to do it. They don’t have to be to a perfect fit for the role, but it is the best you got to choose from. Even if you do like I do and fill out an absentee ballot and mail it in, your choice still counts (unless you are in prison or something) so don’t be afraid if the person you vote for doesn’t win. Voting at all is the key to this working. So no matter what, cast your vote and make it count.

Starbolts #502: Unmasking the Past

Hail!

This week, we delve a bit more into Andrea’s backstory as she comes face to face with a woman who one day became a thorn in her side. Who is she? Where did she come from? What happened to her? These are all very valid questions and we will answer them in the comic weeks. For now, it looks like we are going to take a side trip to the land of the dead and visit the grandparents of Jack, Sara and Crystal.

It sounds like a fun trip and you know that all three of their grandkids will be more than excited for this opportunity. Next week’s mini storyline will go a couple of comics and be this year’s Halloween special. I’m not sure if it counts as spooky. But, it involves the land of the dead. So, it counts.

Join us next week as we journey to the land of the dead. What awaits our young heroes there? Stay tuned!

Damn Write: The International Channel!

Sitting here at home base and flipping through the channels on my cable and thought back to a channel we used to have on this cable selection was the International Channel. This was back during the 2000s and I wasn’t living there at the time but I remember staying here for a Christmas or something and one-night spending some time watching the International Channel and they were airing a block of Japanese animation and enjoying watching those shows before I went to bed. I think it was Great Teacher Onizuka was the anime show I was watching plus some other shows. I remember some commercials that were spliced in for a Russian Comedy type show and got into that they had it.

 Looking at the list now at what they had makes me wish I had it at the time at the cable at my own place. Not only did it have lots of Japanese Anime that I like but also had lots of live-action shows and dramas and interesting things from all over the world. I would have really gotten into that at the time!

 Eventually, around 2008 or so I read that the channel had gone out of business and had been replaced. Whatever the cable company had replaced it with wasn’t anything I put any time into. It didn’t hold my attention nearly as much as The International Channel did. Sure it was geeky as hell for someone like me to watch, but getting some stuff from around the globe got my interest and kept me watching whenever I had the chance. There are some Japanese anime shows airing now on different channels but what aired on the International Channel was special and was thinking about it again just now.

 I also remember the actual Japanese channels the cable company used to carry. No anime and it was mostly news and it was EXPENSIVE! Holy Crap! Didn’t watch that very much!

 Just thinking back to random stuff the cable company used to have back in the 2000s. They were found out to be a giant rip off company and were eventually replaced themselves. Fun times!

Starbolts #501: Parting is Sweet Sorrow

The old order changeth and a new arc begins! Who is this mysterious woman Lady Liberty has confronted in the last panel? Is she friend or foe? We’ll find out in time. In the meantime, we have this backstory of how Andrea handled life as Lady Liberty shortly after the “death” of her mentor, Carter. She didn’t take things well. At least things eventually worked out for the best.

We also got a glimpse into the dating life of Stan and Andrea before they got married. They had to deal with some pretty harsh criticism. I mean Stan is Indigenous and Andrea is a ginger with French and English roots. You can bet some people would be racist jerks. Well, at least they got past that and three good things came from their union. Their names are Jack, Sara and Crystal.

Speaking of the trio, we’ll be getting a mini arc with those two just before our Halloween comic. Be on the lookout for that in the coming weeks! Stay tuned because it is sure to be a trip!

I also wanted to say a bit about Kevin and Angela. I’m picturing his reaction when Angela kissed her and her just walking off. The boy genius is very lucky. Hopefully, she won’t be staying away too long. Kevin is a bit neurotic as most geniuses are. But, he definitely counts his blessings because he has a girlfriend like Angela. Don’t worry. She and Firaxil will be back before you know it!

See ya next time!
