Crybabies

HOR: The Prez won’t defend our border!

Prez: Here, let me defend the border.

HOR: No!! We hate you!!

Ah, politics. Spoiled old men throwing two year old tantrums.

Guardians Of The Galaxy

Guardians Of The Galaxy opens soon, so very shortly lots of would be comic books experts and sci-fi geeks will be able to see what they have been pretending they’ve ever heard of.

I’ve been reading comics and spending way too much time and money in comic book stores and around comic book people for the last 20+ years. Until late last year I had never even heard of Guardians Of The Galaxy. Not once. Marvel has done an amazing job with their cinematic universe thus far, especially considering they sold off so many movie rights to so many other companies that they can no longer make movies featuring most of their most beloved, best selling characters.

I hope this movie is great. I want it to be great. But let’s call this what it is: a film Marvel had to make because it’s one of the few properties they had that no one ever wanted.

Chemical Insomnia

It’s 3:39 AM, which means that it has been a little less than four hours since I started seriously regretting my decision to drink that Monster Ultra Red at 10:30 PM.

“How much could it really effect me?” I said. And I just looked at the clock thinking, “I bet it’s almost 1:30 by now.”

Newsworthy

Just read on the news that a fast food employee yelled at Aretha Franklin. I read that on the news. Thank god all the rapes and murders and child molesters and corporate crimes and government misconduct have been investigated, exposed, and thoroughly reported upon. I can rest easy knowing that all the wars and genocides and human trafficking and forced prostitution and slavery and collapsed economies and natural disasters and ecological crises have been covered in detail and brought in their entirety to public attention. Because somebody yelled at Aretha Franklin, and on the fucking news is where I read that.

Reprehensible

So many people in Detroit have been without water for months that Canada has organized a humanitarian relief effort to provide US citizens INSIDE THE UNITED STATES with water. Not because there isn’t enough water. Because the governments of Detroit and Michigan have shut off the water. Reread that again and again until it sinks in. We are getting foreign humanitarian aid from a country with less than 1/8th our gross domestic product because a small group of people decided to cut off water to the poorest citizens of an impoverished, bankrupt city. This is not the America I was raised to believe in. Just fucking sickening… Fair warning, I’m not in the mood for any bullshit on this one. Any political rants will be deleted. Go fuck yourself if you don’t like it.

Just Google “Detroit water.” It has gotten to the point that people are rallying for the United Nations to step in. It is a repulsive embarrassment that the richest nation in the world allows this to happen to its citizens that need help the most.

Batman Day

Dropped by the comic shop for Batman Day, played a little Batman trivia, and walked away with over a hundred free comic books and a couple of deck boxes! Not too shabby for a Wednesday afternoon. Here’s wishing you a dark and vengeful Batman Day! Support your local comic shop, and they will support you!

This Just In

Fox 19 just announced that tonight they’ll be airing a news segment warning that con artists are taking advantage of the elderly. Also tonight on Fox 19, there seems to be some trouble at Three Mile Island, and who was the mystery gunman that shot JR?

Exsmellsior!

I like Stan Lee and all, but he does not present the appearance of someone I would enjoy smelling, nor someone I would want to smell like.

Illuminating

A news story came out today revealing the type of LED lights used in the Batcave in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie . Because if there’s one thing that tells you how much faith a studio has in a film, it’s when the advance press releases focus on the type of fucking lights they used.
