Egg on my face, guys. I'll be over here. Silently weeping.
Villains Month is over. DC's third September of something completely different in a row (the past two being the New 52 launch, and the #0 issues) has come to a close, the 3D covers have sold out, and the many, many stories have been told. I would, overall, call this month a success. This month I've read good stories,…
This is only a test. If this were a real post, there would be content here.
In case you haven't been following DC Comics news lately, PR hasn't been great for the company. Among the Harley Quinn nude-suicide/Batwoman not getting married debacles, there was a smaller bit of backlash when images of the new design for Lobo, a character who's always been straight out of 90's comics "RRRRR NEED…
I like comic books. I would imagine that's something people who know me have figured out by now. I think Superheroes are cool, and there's potential for a lot of excellent stories to be told uniquely through the comic book format.
The Movement's pitch is a simple one; what would Anonymous look like in a world with Superheroes? And to be honest, it's a really effective pitch. The group has been around in one form or another for a decade now, and yet it really has very little representation in fiction. It's a little bit unfortunate then, that the…
What a surprisingly tolerable Oscar's ceremony.
I feel like I forsook (I looked it up, it's a real word) O-Deck today in favor of trying out the shiny new NeO-Deck beta. I'm sorry, here's a gif gift (gif-t?) as my penance.
So this is my personal blog. It is quite bloggy. I can blog here. Will I? WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO KNOW?
Welp, I just bought Mists of Pandaria off of Amazon, nice knowing you all, I'll see you in a few weeks when I've got a level 90 Panda Bear.
I watched the Dark Shadows movie today. I found it to be exactly as bad as all the reviews said, but perhaps for different reasons. I didn't find it to be offensively bad (until the last fifteen minutes which are borderline unwatchable in their bizarre "HOW DOES FILMMAKING"), just really, really boring. I watched it…
I had a civil, intelligent discussion with a burner account today, on a subject we disagreed on (I liked Season 7 of Supernatural and hated 6, they liked 6, and hated 7). It was a very pleasant surprise. I feel just a little less cynical right now than I did this morning.
I'm reading Carrie for the first time (never seen the movie, either) because I wanted to start reading Stephen King's work with his first book, and it's really good... But now I don't think Chronicle is as brilliant as I did when I saw it last year. *Sigh*
I had soup for dinner. Minestrone. Canned. Had to stick with the theme of the day, you know.
Going out during the super bowl is pretty nice. You get whatever stores or restaurants are open all to yourself (as long as they aren't having some sort of super bowl party, of course), and everything is so calm, and peaceful.
