Good afternoon good people! It is my great honor to introduce you to my esteemed colleauge and friend Susan “Athena” Holland. Recently Athena wrote a post that I enjoyed so much that I just had to share it with my own blogging community. Slap your eyeballs on this! You won’t be sorry.

Update 8/29/12: Since I first posted this, 3 of the 4 musicians on this album tweeted about it! How awesome is that? (WarRock was busy – he and a friend’s tech tools were stolen [they both make their living online], so he rocked a 24 hour rap-a-thon to raise enough money to replace their tools AND had enough left over to donate more than $1200 to charity. Way to turn that lemon into champagne! You can read all about it here.)

Fun Razor = fundraiser. Mikal kHill, Tribe One, Jesse Dangerously and Adam WarRock are nerdcore hip-hop musicians going on tour this fall and doing everything themselves. That’s right: they book, promote and get their own selves and gear to each show. And they need our help.

Fun Razor gives us awesome tunes and we give these independent musicians gas money. Nifty…

Hello good people of the modern era. Do to unforeseen circumstances and good ole fashion poor planning on my part, I was summoned out of town this weekend and won’t be able to post today. I extend to you all my most sincere apology  and hope that you can some how, some day forgive.

Barring the apocalypse or an alien invasion, expect for there to be a full post up here next Saturday. And please, watch The Avengers.You won’t regret it. (that’s what I was summoned out of town to do)

Until next time,

Ethan Murphy

Earthlings and literate extraterrestrials, welcome to a very special Thursday on Man-Made Murphy! A few weeks ago, my childhood friend Ferne Emery came into the fold and brought some much needed class to the blog. Well apparently, lightning is about to strike twice! But this time….it’s personal.

Dear peoples, please,pretty please, please with bacon and chocolate syrup ontop join me in welcoming someone that needs absolutely no introduction! Introducing Jamala K. Massenburg! Yes, thee Jamala K. Massenburg!

Jamala and I go way back. Like maternity ward back. She is my older/vastly superior cousin. If I could’ve been born a smarter, more talented and much shorter female with a borderline European fashion sense, I’d probably been born as her. She accomplished more before puberty than I have since! But amongst her cavalcade of degrees, advanced degrees, accolades and shrines erected in her honor, she has remained as humble as she is beautiful. And that’s saying quite a bit.

Jamala has decided to grace our itty-bitty blog with stories of her world travels and oversea adventures. With a passport enamored in stamps, there’s not a continent been built this girl has not yet been to. Whether by car, plane, boat, pack mule or rocket pack, she’ll find a way to get to her next destination. Or write a blog while trying!!

So please strap on your snow-shoes, put on your smallest bikini and stock your cameras with extra film and come back next Thursday to circumnavigate the globe with the pinnacle of my family’s gene pool! Don’t worry, I promise you won’t even be able to tell we’re related. I can’t!!

Ladies and gentlemen, girls and boys, werewolves and vampires, please join me in welcoming another word-slinger to my little chunk of cyberspace. She’s been a friend of mine for nearly two decades. I met her way back in 8th grade Drama class and did a critically panned play with her in front of countless victims/students. Her intellect is only eclipsed by her charisma. And her charisma is only eclipsed by her sense of humor. And her sense of humor is only eclipsed by her intellect!

Homo sapiens of Earth please put your greasy, sweaty, simian hands together for my life-long crush, Mrs. Ferne Emery! Ferne will be launching her own page on my blog next week. And unlike mine, it promises to be both entertaining and enjoyable!

Ferne is an inspired story-teller and story-listener and will bring something to the table that I can’t. Talent. She will officially begin blogging on here next week. “About what?!” you might ask like a crazed maniac. Well maniac, come back next Wednesday and read for your crazed self!

Please show Mrs. Emery the same courtesy you’ve shown me on “Man-Made Murphy” and welcome her with open arms, burnt offerings and first-born babes. I guarantee she won’t disappoint.

Ferne and her family

Hello, hey there and good day!! Let me be the first, and probably only, to welcome you to my blog! My name is Ethan Murphy and I shall be your host for the ongoing festivities. What festivities you ask? Excellent question my curious yet anonymous friend.

Anyone that knows me knows there are three things in this world I love…and a few things I like. But that’s hardly relevant to the point I’m gradually making. The three things I LOVE are movies, comics and video games. Food’s not bad either but again, relevance.

This little blog is dedicated to my three passionate pleasures, my mistresses of the mind, my incarnations of inspiration. Here, and not there, I will explore the worlds of super heroes and super villains, car chases and shoot-outs, and power-ups and combo moves that have molded me into who, what and how I am today. For better or worse.

In this blog, you the reader, or hacker, will see in-depth interviews with legendary super heroes and super villains. Everyone from Superman and The Incredible Hulk to Lex Luthor and Doc Ock will have a mic in their face and spotlight on their soul as they show the cogs and gears inside the clock that makes them tick. You’ll see a side of these guys that even their custom-made spandex don’t know.

We also have a series of never before seen lists and notes composed by numerous characters from both film and the gaming world. Everything from Mario’s grocery list to Indiana Jones checklist for travel will be here for your eyes to dine on. So bring a spork and steak knife.

For those seeking love, there’s a section dedicated to the dating woes of Darla Dean. A beautiful girl who has the rotten luck of exclusively dating the alter egos of super heroes. Problem is, she’s completely unaware of this fact and can never seem to land Mr. Right. Especially if he can fly.

And for those that crave more bone breaking, neck twisting, name calling madness, we have “Fight Night Fridays.” That’s right, we’ve booked all your fave heroes and villains from movies, comics and games to duke it out in the “Ring of Rough-House” for your modestly priced pleasure. Anything and everything goes in these high stakes fisticuffs!!

Last and definitely least, there will be a little corner for my soapbox. A tiny little platform for me to tell you about myself, my family and my friends through a bunch of stories I’ve collected over my lifetime of personal experiences. Some’ll make you laugh, others cry and some might even make sense. Who knows what could turn up?

Well, my friends, polite enemies and procrastinating hackers, thank you for taking the time to read this brief foreword. I hope to see most, if not all of you again. I can’t promise that this blog will be funny or informative or even enjoyable. But it will be free. And in the end, isn’t that all that matters?
