  • Fernando Ruiz: I don't know where the idea originated for the "Archie meets Archie" story. I know one day Victor Gorelick gave me the assignment to write a story where the current Archie meets the first appearance Archie. It was going to be for a digest celebrating whatever anniversary they were celebrating. That.

  • Mr.Lodge: The first batch of "Memory Lane" stories were the best but were never given the chance to "conclude" properly. The 10th Anniversary one are total crap.....

  • Tuxedo Mark: @Fernando Ruiz I never heard that before! Good to know! :)
    November 16, 2019, 06:08:57 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Nice to establish that. I forgot about that Twilight Zone episode! But of course, the phrase "a stroll down Memory Lane" is a familiar euphemism, so TZ took that as a literal plot device. The Memory Lane stories were the beginning of a fertile period for ACP, idea-wise.
    November 16, 2019, 05:05:30 am
  • Fernando Ruiz: Responding to the comments for the "When Archie Meets Archie" review, the idea for "Memory Lane" was mine. I borrowed it from an old Twilight Zone episode and thought it was a nice convenient device for the story.

I went to the library by myself. I returned a few books. And I got 2 Gravity Falls dvds & 2 books out. My aide did my wash. I did some leg exercises with the new stretching bands. And I took a nap.

Serious question, but why don't managers of businesses that employ folks with "flexible" schedules email that info out to their staff?  It easy enough to hide folks email addy's for privacy's sake. 


Please let us know what's in a "Rainbow" bagel.  I cannot imagine what it is myself.

Went to work, then stopped at the grocery store to pick up some food on the way home. Watched some cartoons, did laundry, and read a book. No comics reading, oddly enough.

Seems overly complicated to me. Couldn't you just cover the bagel with cake frosting decorations and it would be just as healthy? Or say, some 50/50 blend of cake frosting & cream cheese with different food colorings. Then maybe use the Oreo crumbles or Fruity Pebbles just like sprinkles. Just pretend it's a cupcake, that works.

Archiecomicxfan215

I like that idea too :).


I don't know why those are very popular, even after my boyfriend and started eating they made a fresh batch and sold out in like 20 minutes. I even saw someone from BuzzFeed make a video on them on her own channel on youtube (she left buzzfeed) and she lives in LA according to her page :/

I worked in a bagel place, and we never concerned ourselves with toppings.  It was all about the bread, yo. Bread rocks.  Ask your best deli's.

The Art of the Pimp by Dennis Hof. 

I'm not even sure what prompted me to buy it (it was some years back, and I just never got around to reading it until now), probably just that I liked the cover (no pictures) and it sounded like it might be good for a laugh. At the time I didn't even know who this Dennis Hof guy was, but for whatever reason I just saw it sitting there the other day and realized I never did read it, so I picked it up and started browsing it, then went back and started reading from the beginning. It turned out to be an interesting book. I think I was expecting maybe around a 90%+ level of BS, but now I don't know what to think. There's one whole chapter devoted to a scenario where he gives a motivational talk about "The Art of the Sale" to one of the girls, explaining (in detail) how she should negotiate the highest price from the customer for the girl's services, and it effectively rips away the curtain, giving away the secret of his success, which left me wondering why he would do that (not only because he's giving away free advice to his competitors, but isn't it pretty much guaranteed that all the clients at the Bunny Ranch are going to be reading it also?). Also there are sidebar pieces throughout the book where he allows his most outspoken critics to have their say in their own words, and again... I just have to wonder WHY he'd give equal time to his detractors. What it boils down to is that the guy has a history in sales (real estate and time-shares) as a businessman, and sees the sex business as no different than selling any other product, but he says even in his real estate days he could never sell any property that he didn't believe in (like something next to the airport). To him it's all about changing the customer's perception of value for money, and insuring customer satisfaction and repeat business, and he sees the key to that as motivation and positive thinking, where the girls are trying to level up their game. The girls are his sales team, and they're all independent contractors who split their self-negotiated fees 50/50 with the house (they also retain the right to refuse any client -politely- or any specific request, if they aren't comfortable with it, and the rooms are wired for audio in case of any emergency, for their safety). Hof also did some reading of Dale Carnegie's books and his whole sales approach seems to stem from the idea of motivating his workers to achieve success so that they can use that wealth to move on to whatever their goals are. It does seems like he's improved the working conditions, and from a business perspective it seems to make perfect sense - you build a successful company by having successful, motivated workers who are there because they want to be there, not because they have nowhere else to go. Definitely NOT what I was expecting, but fascinating.
