Comprant records per uns quants dòlars / Buying some memories for a bunch of dollars




Hola!
Després d'un no-tan-dur dia de treball, he baixat de l'autobús i he anat a comprar 4 cosetes que em calien pel bungalow. Com després de les compres encara feia prou bon dia, he decidit anara fer un tomb i he acabat dins la botiga de cómics de Berkeley.
M'agrada molt tafanejar llibres, i allà a més hi tenen una gata preciosa. Total que m'he passat 15 minutets remenant cómics (patufets, que diria el meu avi). No tenia pensat comprar res perquè el pressupost d'aquest mes ja està fulminat, a causa de les dues primeres nits d'hotel.

El cas és que m'ha vingut al cap un cómic que una vegada em va deixar el meu amic Víctor fa molts anys, el títol és "The Wizzard's Tale". Va ser un dels primers cómics que vaig llegir i em va deixar un bon record. Alguna vegada li he tornat a demanar per tornar-me'l a llegir. Per algun motiu m'agrada aquest cómic i sempre ha quedat dins un trosset dins meu.

Doncs bé, com ja fa molt que es va fer, no es pot trobar a les botigues, ja que fa anys que està descatal·logat. De totes formes, em va venir al cap en aquell moment, i li en vaig parlar a l'amo de la botiga de còmics, per saber si el teníen...

El noi m'ha dit que no li sonava, però que ho miraria al PC (la botiga és enorme, realment enorme) per si no ho recordava. Al PC ha vist que no, no el tenia. Jo ja sabia que no podia ser, que només es pot trobar de 2ona mà. El cas és que el noi ha dit, mira, si el tingués, hauria de ser aquí, però no el tinc. I ha fotut la mà dins una muntanya de còmics i.... ha aparegut!!!

Ell s'ha endut uns dòlars, i jo uns records al meu bungalow!

L'argument, en faré un breu resum, és més aviat de conte: Un bruixot, últim d'un llarg llinatge de malvats bruixots que han dedicat tota la seva existència a fer el mal pertot, intenta ser digna de tan llarga tradició familiar. Però per molt que intenta ser malvat, cada encantari que prova acaba per portar la felicitat a qui en teoria havia de ser la seva víctima (per exemple vol arrassar un poble amb una tempesta, però provoca un plugim que acaba amb la forta sequera que patia el pobre poblet). Un bon dia però, els dolents de debó decideixen que cal impedir que la llum del Sol arribi a la Terra, i és en aquell moment que el nostre vell mag descobreix que no és pas dolent, que és bo i que ha d'impedir-ho.

After a no-such-hard day of work, I returned to Berkeley and went do some buys. As I ended pretty soon, and the day was still sunny, I decided to go out for a walk, and ended inside a big comic store in Berkeley. I love to put my nose between books in stores, and in that one, they have a beautiful cat that loves being huged. So I have my books and it its hugs. Fare. I didn't have any idea of buying anything, because this months has been done with my first hotel nights.

Once there, I remember of a comic that my good friend Víctor just lend me a lot of years ago. Its name is "The Wizard's Tale", and it was one of the first comics I read. It always reminds in my head, because for some reason it let me a good feeling. Afer that, I have asked my friend from time to time just to let me it again, just to re-read it. Because it was made too much years ago and now it is impossible to find it in stores. Only second handed.

I just try to ask... and the guy in charge just told me that he didn't remember having it (as espected...) but that he was going to check the PC (as the store just have a lot of comic book and maybe he just forgot about this one). The PC said that the comic was not in the shop. So as espected... After that, he told me that he was sorry, but that he hadn't it. And then added "if I have it, it has to be there" and then put his hand between a big bunch of comics... and.... bingo! It was, brand new between his fingers!

So he earned some dollars, and I some good memories...

I will do a small abstract of its plot: The main character is an old wizard, the last of his family. A family all of famous evil wizards. So he just tries to be good enough of his legacy. But unfurtunatelly (or not) every single spell he tries to make evil, just ends doing some good things (for exemple, he tries to ruin a village by using a storm, but then a gentle rain appears that ends with the severe dry that was having the village). Then, the truly bad boys, decided to stop the Sun reaching the Earth, and our wizard realizes that in fact he is good, and he must stop it.

Enjoy the pics of our Evil-but-good wizard!

How lucky are you! That was great being able to find the book. The Wizard sounds like a pretty good fellow whether he wants to be or not. I hope your stay here gets better and better everyday with hidden treasures like this.
