I Think I'm Going to Have a Heart Attack and Die From This Surprise...

Can't Talk
You need to work on your people skills really
really badly. Honestly, you need some help from
date patrol.

Why are you still single?

"Date Patrol?"

Tomorrow at work I may have to give instruction on how to use a touch pad mouse. We got a new laptop today in the library. I think I'll be used for cataloging purposes.

I made signs for our suggestion box today. The color printer wouldn't print though...

The big story in Boston is the fervor on both sides on the same sex marriage issue. Republicans should just give up. The issue can't come to a vote until 2006 at which time gay and lesbian couples will already be legally married. Opponents are like well then they just won't be married then. Unless I missed some decision, I still think the marriages would hold up since it happened when it was legal to do so.

The main argument against is that marriage is to bear and raise children. Even when pre-marital sex wasn't commonplace, that wasn't entirely the case. It's a symbol of unity when two people love each other no matter which sexual organs they have.

Besides, it's not like overpopulation in the US is going to stop if couples of the same sex get married. Did I miss the memo that said single homosexuals can reproduce?

I love the "civil union" compromise which, if I understand this correctly, would make it possible for same sex couples to be united for tax purposes but not together "in the eyes of God." Ok, there are Church and State issues with this right off the bat and, really, would God have a problem with this? The New Testament would say no. The Old Testament, yes, but there was a rabbi on the pro side at the rally the other day so there you go...

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…

The Blog Comes Around

Went to see Logan yesterday. I had already read tweets claiming it was the "best X-men film to date" which, to be honest, is not the highest of bars to leap over.  After seeing it, I would go much further with my praise. It doesn't really have the feel of a comic book film at all. This leaves both Spider-man 2 and The Dark Knight  in the dust in this respect...

To me, it feels more like a post-apocalyptic film (a genre that seems to get more critical praise, or at least scrutiny, incidentally.)  You have a small group of people, last of their kind, making the journey to Eden. This is the trope found in that genre. Death and bleakness, found also in Westerns, is evident from the Johnny "Man in Black" Cash songbook and the inclusion of Elizabeth Rodriguez best known from the show Orange is the New Black! (Sure, possibly a coincidence but if not? Sweet!) Just because it includes characters from comic, I'm pretty sure award voters will not see it in this respec…

Strange Times

No, this isn't about the election. I'm not ready to unlease that upon the world just yet.  Instead, allow me to share my thoughts on another fantastic entry into Marvel's cinematic universe.  Doctor Strange was the perfect blend of the tone we are used to and the adding of the supernatural world.

Friends on Facebook may have noticed my comment that the first part of  The Imitation Game  was unexpectedly hilarious due in large part to Benedict Cumberbatch's turn as Alan Turing so it comes as no surprise he's awesome as arrogant neurosurgeon (a redundant phrase in my personal experience.)

Doctor Strange, like Ghost Rider, is really not a character that lends itself to having a love interest but since it's an origin story, it worked here with  fellow surgeon Dr. Christine Palmer. Certainly better than in that movie... I've loved Rachel McAdams since The Family Stone  but I'm sure the character'll just go the route of Thor's Jane Foster and just be …
