Warning! Post Contains Strong Language.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Sundays exist do they not? Of course they do and, for many, Sundays are the only day they have time to get things done so even if mail isn't delivered on Sunday which I have no problem allowing postal workers the day off but you should still be able to pick up a package that arrived late Saturday when you were at school function on the other end of the fucking state especially if said package contains needed medicine or perhaps perishable food items.

Ok maybe thats not a big deal to any one but me but here's another thing destroying the good mood I was in only yesterday. Again, maybe this is just me but why the fuck isn't there a change machine or machine to put money on your card on the residence campus where people actually are on a fucking Sunday as a opposed to the main campus where it's all fucking locked up so if your card key doesn't work you have to hope that someone cares enough to open the fucking door for you, or in my case today, someojne they do care about is also trying to get in. The machine to put money on my card is broken (Why the hell is there only one of these on either campus?) I found a change machine but it wouldn't take my dollar bills for no apparent reason. To get my fucking laundry done I had to get change from my RA who miraculously was in her room but that that's a post for another time.

Overall the two Halloween parties I went to over the weekend were good. The first one was in the dorm and was in the top three of school sanctioned activites in terms of fun. (Thats in my whole school career not just here at Simmons.) The scavenger hunt in the different undergrad dorms was a little lame but instead of finding the items I was supposed to find I did find a dime and, while walking down an undergrad corridor, I did overhear, "There's a guy on our floor. He's cute." Alas, I don't even remember what they look like. It was fun hanging and drinking with my dormmates. Case in point, two were discussing how one met this guy who shared her obsession with King Arthur and I thought she said BEA Arthur and was like why would any one have an obssession with her? It was hilarious. I spilled coconut rum on my pants so you know it had to be a good time.

The GSLIS party at the dean's house last night was pretty good but was really more of a function than a party complete with real food and no tunes. The East/West connection didn't really happen. I didn't think it would. What I mean is the two campuses stayed apart from eachother for the most part. I was even part of the West campus for awhile but only one of my former classmates decided to talk with me. Eh.

Time to check my laundry...

Thor Or Thunderstrike?

Marvel screwed the pooch with the Thor  franchise from the beginning. They took the more modern notion that the Asgardians are aliens not gods. In itself, that's fine but I can't help but think that just made it more complicated not less. (Wonder Woman  just killed them off which is better but that's still a big nitpick from me about THAT movie...)

I stopped regularly reading comics  after I graduated college in the early part of the century so I don't know when secret identities became passé but I think this also hurt the franchise. Originally, instead of dropping Thor on his head and giving him amnesia, Odin put him the mortal body of Donald Blake and then Eric Masterson. (Was that a complaint about Ghost Rider? Same concept really...)

In Thor: Ragnarok, to me, this '90's era of the comic where Eric Masterson WAS Thor was the best run of the comic and there were many Easter eggs from that period from Thor's Earth garb (with Mjolnir disguised as an umbrell…

Wasn't A Complete Punishment

Checking my Facebook Memories this morning, it is apparently the anniversary of my review of Jessica Jones.  In many reviews of  The Punisher Jessica Jones  is the pinnacle all other Marvel Netflix (or in some cases, Marvel shows on any network but that's a post for another time...) must be held to. I'll tell you straight out, I personally enjoyed both seasons of  Daredevil  more so... (Hell,  The Punisher  had a less annoying support cast...)

For reasons I didn't consider back then and don't care about now, comic books in the '90's saw the creation of more violent  characters to presumably dispel the notion comics weren't just for kids. Ironman, Thor, Captain America and, perhaps ironically, Batman got more gritty counterparts and the Punisher (and Deadpool) was created. Like most superheroes, Frank Castle's origins begin with the death of a family member; in his case, ALL OF THEM. In comics, it was due to be caught in the crossfire of a mob shootout…

Setup Complete

When I wrote my blog post on the previous Netflix series, Luke Cage, I noted it was only about 90% as dark as Daredevil  and Jessica Jones. Iron Fist  is only about 90% as dark as that series.While that does make me question the Mature rating, I have no problem with that.

I feel in the mood to structure at least the beginning of this review on my feelings on complaints I've heard

1. The acting and writing: I'm sure my bar is lower than others but I feel people who feel the strongest about this have never watched movies on Lifetime or Hallmark. (Oddly, I read a comment on Twitter from a complainer that he had higher hopes for Cloak and Dagger on Freeform than  Inhumans on ABC. Special effects budget, sure but writing and acting? I think that's an iffy wager at best but I digress.)

Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick are great as Danny Rand and Colleen Wing. Danny to me is just as a 25 year old man who spent 15 years cut off from the world as he knew it in a monastery (think ster…
