Low Blow from The Atlantic

Spencer Kornhaber of The Atlantic has a completely tone deaf piece in which he protests entirely too much about Justin Timberlake’s nearly perfect Superbowl Halftime show: www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2018/02/justin-timberlakes-sad-super-bowl-anti-spectacle/552290/ So why point it out? to show that you can’t make everyone happy. He did a very touching tribute to a great artist (Prince) who had a pretty unfortunately rocky and regrettable Halftime show of his own and some how JT a thief of “black swagger”? I expected more from The Atlantic 🙁

State of Union Stream of Consciousness thread!

Adam Selvidge DJT already sounds tired, like really tired. Is he going to make it through this speech? Adam Selvidge 5 time draft dodger thanks military member who did an amazing job at saving people during one the hurricanes that hit us in 2017 Adam Selvidge I had forgotten about that crazy guy that ran onto the baseball field and shot the place up, I’m surprised that he’s bringing that up considering what the reaction was to it at the time by his administration (do nothing, send thoughts and prayers) Adam Selvidge 2.4 million news jobs, but he’s not going...

I was selected for jury duty

but when I called in today, I was told that I was released, which is both a relief and a bit of frustration, I’ve never served on a jury before and thought it would be be neat to try it out. I’m sniffing a bit from my latest round of the flu, so I’m definitely more happy than I am sad.

Marvel and DC need to get better

I’ve only recently gotten back into monthly comics, but what I found is a train wreck that makes me want to stay far away from Marvel and DC. Valiant, Image, or other small publishers are were the great stories are right now, and this article really drives home much of how I feel about the state of the comic industry, in terms of the books they put out and how the old vs new fans are treated by those same books: Tilting at Windmills #266: An Open Letter to C.B. Cebulski & Marvel Comics

Here’s what was watched: Gi Joe Gi Joe retaliation Moana Tomorrow land Lost is space green lantern journey 2 Moana and Tomorrowland were great, Journey 2 was a fun movie, Lost in Space was a masterpiece and I”ll fight anyone that says otherwise… the rest of them ….well they weren’t that great.  Mind you, I’ve seen all these before and I spent part of the time reading a new comic series on my phone, but I was there physically in...
