And Now, From the People Who Brought You Beer Milkshakes...

Lister
You're Dave Lister!! You rock harder than a
porn-star's bed springs and have the attitude
to match. And you LOVE curry.
You're probably still obsessed about the one that
got away (Kochanski!!), and you like to say
smeg a lot.
But you have an awesome Liverpudlian accent, and
you're the only one who really knows when it's
best to just stay in bed. Lucky for you that
saved your smegging life!!


Which Red Dwarf Character Are YOU?
brought to you by Quizilla

So I had busy day at work today. There was one lazy ass woman I had "the privilege" to to help all freaking morning. First, I helped her find a book in the catalog which is fine then I helped her find the book on the shelf which is also fine. Later she needed to make photo copies so was just going to show her how but then she just wanted me to do it! During this, paper fell behind the copier and she wanted me to get that. If I wasn't the nice person that I am I would seriously tell this chick to fuck off.

Tonight, there was a informational meeting about commencement. No tickets so if you're not doing anything on the morning of Sunday, May 16th, feel free to come up, down, or sideways to see me get a fake diploma which will then be exchanged for a real one later.

When Captain America Throws His Mighty Shield...

As I was recently discussing with someone on Twitter, I'm not a big fan of "Good Guys Manipulated Fight Each Other" films so it's sad that Captain America: Civil War came out so close on the heels of Batman v. Superman. As maybe I've confessed before I am more of a Marvel fan but that is not why this one was better.  DC fans frequently point out this was the 13th Marvel film while BvS  is only the second of their new cinematic universe. To me, that's why it worked better. The tension was building out of the last Avengers  movie and the characters have interacted for several movies worth of time (One must assume interactions happen off screen as well) so they know each other pretty well. Two friends having a disagreement carries so much more weight than two strangers going at it. 

In my critique of  Batman v. Superman,  I noted that the end of the featured fight hinged on the fact both characters' mothers were named Martha. Here, the big fight ended when …

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…

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 …
