This Really Needs A Picture

Scorpio Drinking style:
Don't ever tell Scorpios they've had enough, for
they'll smirk at you and quietly but
intentionally keep tippling till they're hog
whimpering drunk, out of 100-proof spite.
Scorpios like to drink, and screw you if you
have a problem with that. Most of them see the
sauce as something to savor in itself, and not
as a personality-altering tool -- though if
depressed, self-loathing Scorps seek total
obliteration. But generally, they're
fascinating drinking pals, brilliant
conversationalists and dizzying flirts. They
also remember everything -- especially what you
did when you were blitzed. Only drink with a
Scorpio who likes you.


Alcohoroscopes- what do the stars say about your drinking style

I'd say that's fairly accurate. MMM...Alcohol...

I was reading some of my old posts this morning before work. A previous Fruit Quiz pegged me as an orange. (Guess who eats 3 oranges a day...)

I wouldn't say I'm a completely different person I was in September and October but I've since forgiven my ex for her lies. We actually had a very pleasant conversation the other day.

You'll also notice I've really not blogged in depth about any of the courses this semester and really don't plan to. They seem to be the least interesting part of my life right now.

I also complained frequently about being unemployed. Hee Hee! Today, Mark was at a conference and Rosa was out sick so it was just Marie, myself and the workstudy student. Oddly, the library was ridiculously quiet anyway. Fatima and I basically surfed the internet all morning. Oh, the student who I have been tutoring on her writing came in today. Thankfully, she didn't need much help today since we were so short staffed. Another student came, used a computer without signing in and then wanted to print. Fatima wouldn't give him the papers because he didn't follow procedure. He turned to me for help but I backed Fatima's decision. If I was alone at the desk, I probably would've let him have it but charged him like twenty or twenty-five cents a page instead of the usual fifteen. Apparently, this was the fourth time this moron has done this.

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…
