I Did Drink This Just Last Week.

You Are Guinness

You know beer well, and you'll only drink the best beers in the world.
Watered down beers disgust you, as do the people who drink them.
When you drink, you tend to become a bit of a know it all - especially about subjects you don't know well.
But your friends tolerate your drunken ways, because you introduce them to the best beers around.


It was partially to celebrate St. Patty's Day and what else does one drink during March Madness but beer? I do find it odd I picked Amsterdam, not Dublin and I still got this answer but at least it's a beer I drink. Two years ago now it must have been since she just turned 21 recently, Keira Knightley once said Dublin was the best place to drink Guinness but she was only 19 at the time so she couldn't drink here in America (There's something weird about that but I don't know what.) but that seems perfectly logical to me. American beer, ::sticks finger down throat:: so I'd imagine they'd find ways to screw up the imported.

I suppose I must ask what the hell happened to the UConn men yesterday. I still don't understand how they could have lost. It was an 11 seed for godsakes! My response to my mother when she asked that question was that George Mason just wanted it more. Thank God the women are still alive but Duke will not be an easy task.

I couldn't get ahold of anyone at my temp agency today so I'll have to try again tomorrow. I need to get back to work before I remember what fun and how relaxing staying home can be.

You mean you don't love drinking Budweiser?? Here is a link to the place I wanted to take you when you visited: http://www.manateeworld.com/
They should be open when you all come down next month!

Thanks for the link. If that works out, I think it would be fun.

My father compares Bud to sknunk piss. I'm really not sure hiw he knows but I suppose I don't want to!

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…

Ant-Man On The Ocean

I'll discuss  Ant-Man and the Wasp  in a minute but there's still a handful of thoughts about my viewing of  Ocean's Eight I want to relay first...  When the all-female Ghostbusters  came out, there was the usual "raping of childhood" complaints.  Ocean's Eight sidestepped many of these issues by being a spin-off of a remake that was already done. Sandra Bullock played the sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean. (There was mention their father was als in the business. A reference to Frank Sinatra?)  Also, if you want to do a all-female action and/or comedy movie, the heist genre isn't a bad way to go.

Soundtracks are usually "just there" for me. They seem to be usually selected for their beat and tempo and not their lyrics. Lindsay Lohan's Herbie: Fully Loaded  was particularly noticeable in this regard for me  but I was admittedly in a bad mood that night since I had rather watched  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe  for whatever num…
