What's Your Political Philosophy?

The first time I took this quiz this past weekend, I was Green but I think this better fits my personality and voting for the Green party would be a throwaway vote even if I did agree with their policies. Honestly, I'd much rather keep out those who shouldn't be in office than put in those who should. In this day and age, it doesn't seem you can have it both ways. Looking ahead to the 2008 elections, right now, I think I'd vote for Hillary Clinton but I'd honestly not be that upset with John McCain as he's much more moderate than the current administration and, well, let's leave it at that...

An amusing note on the baseball front: I read in today's paper a quote from pitcher Matt Clement that said he played at Wrigley Field instead of Fenway Park. Was there more permanent damage from when he was hit in the head with that comebacker to the mound last season than people believed or is he just a moron?

And why has the media focused on the worry spots of Clement and Wells when Wakefield hasn't pitched stellarly either not mention that it was made painfully obvious recently that Beckett isn't as automatic as we were led to believe? True, Clement and Wells are big problems but most of the rotation is a problem so why minimize the blame?

I agree with you on the voting thing, and I'm definately a green party gal. And, wouldn't it be interesting if McCain was voted in....people are constantly telling my Dad he looks just like him. ;)

McCain and your father could be twins. I've thought that for awhile now...

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 …

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 …

An X-Cellent Post

 X-Men: Apocalypse is the third of the "prequel movies" and today is my second favorite after First Class.  Don't get me wrong: the last one,  Days of Future Past,was far from terrible but you could easily argue it was an excuse to feature Hugh Jackman. The other two do just fine with cameos (which are both awesome and unnecessary but I digress...)

The two biggest complaints I've had about the franchise are the lack of even internal continuity and lack of effort. This movie clearly had the attitude they know continuity is messed up and they don't give a shit. Havok and Cyclops are brothers but inexplicably 20 years apart in age but certainly don't look it. In '83, Prof. Xavier sees CIA Moira McTaggart for the first time since the Cuban Missile Crisis and comments, "You haven't aged a day!" Not even James Bond is a field agent in his late '50's but whatever... (Speaking of Moira,  Rose Byrne is Tasmanian while the character is Scottis…
