Link: The Personality Defect Test written by saint_gasoline on Ok Cupid, home of the 32-Type Dating Test
Spiteful Loner
You are 57% Rational, 14% Extroverted, 57% Brutal, and 42% Arrogant.
You are the Spiteful Loner, the personality type that is most likely to go on a shooting rampage. In high school, you were probably that kid who wore all black and who sat alone in a corner of the lunch room, drawing pictures of dead babies. You are a rational person and tend to hold emotions in very low-esteem; not only that, but you are also rather introverted, meaning you probably bury any emotions you feel deep inside yourself, like all of the bodies in your backyard. Combine these traits with your dislike of others and your brutality, and it seems that you would be quite likely to shoot innocent people in a rampage. Most likely, you also have low self-esteem. Hell, I get low self-esteem just looking at you. This is only yet one more incentive to go on a shooting rampage, because you wouldn't care if you died as a result. Granted, you probably haven't gone on a shooting rampage and probably never will, but all the motivations are there. All you need is for someone to push you over the edge, calling you names and belittling you. Like me. But don't shoot me. I have a 101 mile-long knife, you know. In conclusion, your personality is defective because you are too introverted, brutal, insecure, and rather unemotional. No wonder no one hangs around you, you morbid, cold-hearted freak!


To put it less negatively:

1. You are more RATIONAL than intuitive.

2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.

3. You are more BRUTAL than gentle.

4. You are more HUMBLE than arrogant.
Be sure to take my Sublime Philosophical Crap Test if you are interested in taking a slightly more intellectual test that has just as many insane ramblings as this one does!



There was a Tag Sale at our church recently so crap was stored in our garage. After it was cleaned out my mother found various items for her doll house like a staircase, doors and shingles. Saturday I spent most of the day painting said shingles. It was a nice change of pace I think.

Last night my parents and I went to see Jewel and Rob Thomas in concert at one of the casinos. It had been awhile since I saw a concert and even longer since I went to see one at the casinos. (Ironically, I think the last one was Jewel at the other casino like 3 years ago.)

I went mainly to see Jewel as everyone who reads this could guess even after a lobotomy. After all, I think Rob Thomas said it best when he said, "I fucking love Jewel." She did not disappoint. Definitely the best versions of "Hands", "Down So Long" and "Intuition" I've ever heard. I'm unsure why she felt the need for the full band to join her on "Foolish Games" as I think a solo acoustic treatment as she did on "You Were Mean For Me" was called for here but that was really my only complaint about her set. Oh and that it was too short...

When Rob Thomas played my favorite Matchbox 20 song, "If You're Gone" third in his set, I was worried it was going to be all down hill from there. I'm surprised myself to report that was not the case. He played all my favorite Matchbox 20 songs and "Smooth" but the best parts of the night were the covers. His cover of David Bowie's "Let's Dance" was probably the best cover of a David Bowie song I've heard with the exception of Natalie Merchant's "Space Oddity" and maybe the Wallflowers' "Hero". (I probably should point out I can count on one hand the number of Bowie covers I've heard in my life but that shouldn't diminish the accomplishment.) The biggest complaints I have with his set was, towards the end especially, almost every song was played like it was his last song. You don't waste the jam! You aren't the Allman Brothers or Cream. The other problem I had, and this maybe was due to where we were sitting, the distortion seemed worse on songs I was not familiar with so the concert really didn't make me like him that much better.

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…
