As You Know, I'm An Only Child...

You Are Likely a Third Born

At your darkest moments, you feel vulnerable.
At work and school, you do best when you're comparing things.
When you love someone, you tend to like to please them.

In friendship, you are loyal to one person.
Your ideal careers are: sales, police officer, newspaper reporter, inventor, poet, and animal trainer.
You will leave your mark on the world with inventions, poetry, and inspiration.


The odd thing about this is, much of what is said here is actually true. Does that say more about this quiz or me?

I'm concerned about the silence from my POI. Well, silence is not really the word. She comes on AIM when I'm Away says hi and then immediately logs off. She doesn't seem to be on at our usual conversation time anymore yet never suggests we change the time through e-mail or whatever. Should I take this as a sign she's no longer interested or does this imply she wants me to do all the damn work and suggest a time change myself? I don't like the implications of either.

The timing couldn't be more... I don't know what word I'm looking for but my point is that I'm getting money now, even if it's only small amounts, so things are looking up on that front and I thought things were going well with her.

I know I have to e-mail her but it's starting to aggravate me she won't just level with me on what the hell is going on in her life. I know we haven't met yet but it's not from lack of trying on my part. Sometimes I wish she'd just shit or get off the pot. (Ok, that was vulgar but the point is valid.) Argh!

bah...write her a friendly, casual email but if she wanted to make things happen with you, she clearly knows how to do that. And that saying hi during an away msg is b.s. Not that I haven't done things like that before (or now), but come on, you do it for a reason and that reason is not wanting to talk to the person.

Don't mention $$ in your post but you could say like, an activity you wanted to do that costs $$ and then ask if she'd be up for that... meh stuff like this sucks, kick her to the e-curb. And by that I mean, gradually let it go. hahaha

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…
