Easter, Temp Jobs and Observations

You scored 25 nervousness!
You really should be more nervous. People want to make coats out of you, you know. It's a harsh, harsh world, my friend.

Ok, I'm warming up to Mark Loretta given his ninth inning heroics today but I'm still not convinced the trade was a good thing as Josh Bard wasn't particularly good on Saturday.

Yesterday, I ran a Easter Egg Hunt for the kids at church. I really should have given the little kids a headstart as I had intended but I forgot and I also really should have collected all the plastic eggs and should not have let the kids take the baskets home. Maybe I'll remember all these things next time.

Last night or maybe Saturday night, I finally got my sleep cycle back to normal after finishing the mail room assignment Friday morning. Oh, get this we finished at 4am instead of 7am so I had to wait almost a half hour for my father to come pick me up. I really hated having to wake him but I didn't know what else to do. Why is there so much discrimination against non-drivers? (I see this in attempted relationships, as I've mentioned more than once, as well.)

This weekend I bought, with some of my earnings from the seminar, the Star Trek Fan Collective: Borg DVD set. (Did tell everyone I'm actually paying my bills again?) On the package it says it's the best of the episodes as chosen by fans but aside from the episode where Voyager encounters the former Borg and I think most, if not all, of the Icheb episodes not to mention the episode where Seven has the multiple personalities, they are all here. Yesterday, apparently was Scarlet Pomers Day as I watched her as Naomi Wildman and then later came across an episode of Reba although if you didn't know they were the same person, you wouldn't...

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…

Sunday Morning Movie Review

Black Panther was great. Just as  Wonder Woman  gave little girls a superhero to "look up to," little African boys (Yes, not just African American  boys) have their own hero. But what was even better about this movie is that it was so much more. It wasn't a stereotypical Eddie Murphy or Whitney Houston movie.  Even 5, 8 years ago, we wanted this to happen but this might have been just the right time. T'Challa is king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda that millennia ago became rich in a fictional mineral called vibranium that allowed them to  become the most technologically advanced country on Earth. They decided to keep this secret, however, and disguised themselves with a cloaking shield and the guise of a "shithole country." (See? Relevance!)

Wakanda has reached a crossroads. Xenophobia is really no longer working. The villain of the movie, Wakandan by blood but certainly not upbringing, Killmonger, takes the throne in an effort to take the Black…
