Oh look at this
I should post in this more. I’ll do that! Starting now.
When I was a kid, I had this book about history. It had a picture of a plague doctor in it which freaked me the fuck out. I was like WHY IS HE A BIRD WHY. My tiny mind couldn’t handle it. I haven’t thought at all about plague doctors since then, until Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood came out. There’s a plague doctor in it. And I thought, “Oh, I remember those...
I’ve got a problem. On a given day, by the time I hit my stride, it’s always nearly bedtime. I could stay up, sure. But societal pressures keep us diurnal, don’t they? What I need is a way to get started earlier in the day. I wonder what my problem is. Maybe it’s got something to do with breakfast. I never was a great consumer of breakfast, for one reason or another. Got me...
So yeah, the past week or so my anxiety disorder has escalated pretty badly. I’ve recently started on a new medication, so I thought at first that it was just a bad side effect. But then I considered that maybe I just need to work through it? Like, maybe I’m not feeling increased anxiety because of an adverse reaction, but because I legitimately have a lot to be anxious about? In case...
Oh jeez, I haven’t posted on this thing in a while. Oh Depression, you so crazy!
So for the past couple of months my back has been hurting something fierce. I only today realized that a contributing factor may be my habit of going without my glasses so I have to lean in to see shit.
I have decided to start reading Star Wars Expanded Universe books. For years I have been hearing tantalizing snippets from the EU, whispers of Mandalorians, Sith, Mynocks. But I was reticent to venture into this world, with its myriad series, authors, and timelines. The vagaries of the canon were daunting. Eventually, the curiosity became too much for me, too much to hold in my body. I yearned to...
"An Elegant Weapon, From A More Civilized Age"
I am teaching my nephew to play Pokemon. I think it was a mistake to introduce him to it first on the GameBoy Advance platform, considering that device’s issue with brightness. I’ll figure it out. I love how quickly he’s taking to it. He latched onto the concept of houses and towns right away. He’s four, so he’s old enough to read the more common words, and can be...
Things That Made Me Cry
When Kirk’s dad died in the new Star Trek At the climax of Ratatouille, when the food critic has his flashback. In Band of Brothers, when the planes were bombed. Also when Bull gave his chocolate to the kids. Midnight (Doctor Who episode). I can’t watch it, it’s too much.
Here we have the trailer for the upcoming film MacGruber, based on Saturday Night Live’s popular MacGuyver parody sketch. The film is directed by Jorma Taccone of The Lonely Island, a credit which speaks for itself of his merit. Co-starring is Kristin Wiig, as lovely as she is talented, which is to say very. Her delivery of her response to the villain’s “And where would that...
This is the trailer for the movie based on The A-Team. No need exists to say that inevitable detractors will cry foul at this next in the unending line of remakes of 1980’s television shows. No need exists because the detactors are inevitable. But my enthusiasm remains unchecked, and my abiding love for Bradley Cooper will win the day. Go get ‘em, Coop. Also in this film is Sharlto...
