I Stole This Because It Looked Like Fun.

Musical Magic 8 Ball
Go to your music player of choice and put it on shuffle.
Say the following questions aloud, and press play.
Use the song title as the answer to the question.


1. How does the world see me?

"Much Too Late For Goodbyes"-Julian Lennon. Ok, that's just mean...

2. Will I have a happy life?

"If You're Gone"- Matchbox 20. So it's conditional...

3. What do my friends really think of me?

"Play Guitar"- John Mellencamp. So my friends want me to "forgot about that macho shit and learn how to play guitar."

4. Do people secretly lust after me?

"Rhapsody"- Alejandro Escoveda. Um, then no?

5. How can I make myself happy?

"Tempted"-Squeeze. I think that means to have an affair. Ok...

6. What should I do with my life?

"Wish You Were Here"- Pink Floyd. So I should pine after someone?

7. Will I ever have children?

"Peaceful Easy Feeling"- The Eagles. Does that mean I need to have sex with some woman with sparkly earrings in the desert if I want children? Or does it mean to just forget about it?

8. What is some good advice for me?

"Truly Madly Deeply"- Savage Garden. Climb a mountain and take a bath with a woman? Weird but easily done.

9. How will I be remembered?

"Maybe I'm Amazed."- Heart with Cyndi Lauper. I'm touched, maybe...

10. What is my signature dancing song?

"Dancing Days"- Led Zepplin. Probably true...

11. What do I think my current theme song is?

"As Tears Go By"- The Rolling Stones. Still? Wow...

12. What does everyone else think my current theme song is?

"Crimson and Clover"- Joan Jett. So I rock but can be monotonous. That is probably also true...

13. What song will play at my funeral?

"Cheers Theme. (Full Version)" An Irish Wake perhaps? I would hope everyone at my funeral knew my name...

14. What type of men/women do you like?

"She's Not There"- The Zombies. Apparently I want a woman who I can never find.

15. What is my day going to be like?

"Once More Around the Block"- Badly Drawn Boy. So a day of same old, same old then?

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 …
