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
brought to you by Quizilla

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.

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 …
