Riding home in the middle of the night, I got a hint of inspiration watching the Richmond and Vancouver traffic rolling on home after Victoria Day events. I don’t do poetry a lot, but sometimes the mood strikes, or there’s the perfect little idea that can’t be anything more than handful of words.
Either way, there’s a new poem up, Gold Spot, up for your reading pleasure. Enjoy!
Captain America: Civil War, despite my few complaints with it, is definitely a fun film, worth the ticket and the sticky floor to see. Ultimately, these are my opinions (as usual) and just an overall feeling I have, but it doesn’t really detract as much from my enjoyment as this post would maybe make it seem. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and it’s leagues ahead of the snowball of trouble that is Batman v Superman, despite me being able to enjoy that too. For now, though, I just wanted to articulate some thoughts/concerns I had about Civil War and the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The point beyond this jump is full of unmarked spoilers for Captain America: Civil War, so only read on if you’ve seen the movie or don’t mind! If you do mind, maybe pass the time by catching up on the short stories I have instead…
It’s May 4th today!
Which is now celebrated as Star Wars Day because of a vague semblance between “fourth” and “force,” especially if you have a lisp (or is it lithp?). Easy jokes aside, let’s talk about my love of Thtar Warth for a change!
Today is “Administrative Professionals Day,” yet another day where a calendar suggests that we respect a certain person, when in reality we should just respect everyone who deserves it all the time for the hard work they do in any field. Anyway, Sony released a video today coinciding with the release of the 2016 version of Ghostbusters (which I previously talked about how I’m not really concerned), which focused solely on Chris Hemsworth’s character Kevin, the receptionist for the ghostbusters.
For the context of this discussion, we have to look back at how many people saw the first trailer for the new movie, and used it as proof (definitive of otherwise) that the movie would suck; the jokes are bad, the CGI looks terrible, the props look dumb, and all that. What really got me was the “the jokes are bad” complaint.
Oh what a glorious day! We’ve got some more short stories for you, bookworms. Three to be exact!
If you’re not at least this excited, I question your level of vitality
So! The trailer for the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters arrived on the ‘net recently, to “mixed” reactions, and once again I find myself smack dab in the middle of a fandom that is eating itself alive (stay classy Final Fantasy and Devil May Cry). Here we have both the initial announcement trailer, and the international one, which has some different scenes.
Well! It certainly has been a while, and I apologize. Starting more classes and getting myself more set up in the city (again) consumed way more time than I had expected, especially giving some of the more intense classes I ended up taking. On the plus side, I’ve begun a facebook page which you can (and should *nudge nudge wink wink*) Like to follow me on a more consistent basis and see what I might be talking about.
Now, with that out of the way, on to the more important stuff, and that would be some brand new short stories to read!
Well! Apparently finding a job and apartment were way more time-consuming than I would have ever wanted, but at least it’s done. In the meantime, I was finally able to finish the extra, behind-the-scenes Blast Back content for my Patreon supporters! It’s super easy (and cheap) to become one, and doing so will help me continue creating more stories for you lovely readers to eat up.
