6 Weird Things About Moi

Ok, this has been going around the blogsphere like a virus and I have finally been tagged by JRRyan. She is my only reader who has a blog so I tag no one but invite whomever is bored to do this in my comment section if they so choose. You can always get a blog too...

1. I'm not fond of onions and peppers but do love salsa. I also do not like coconut but do really like brazil nuts.

2. I hate wearing shoes but I also really don't like being barefoot either so I am frequently in socks. (Well, rarely in sandals...)

3. I'm left handed but use scissors with my right hand.

4. I frequently sprinkle television or movie references into everyday conversation. By the same token, I frequently make bizarre references. This is very Dennis Miller of me which I suppose is a weird reference in itself...

5. I imagine whole future conversations with people; most of which never do really happen.

6. I'm hardly ever wearing a watch but frequently look at my wrist as if I was.

I was eating lunch with my non-dorky co-workers and they were talking about ways in which they relax after work. So I said that I chill in my leaky bacta tank. They were confounded. I lamely explained what a bacta tank was, and then had to explain it was leaking bc it was built by the lowest bidder.

Don't ppl watch STAR WARS anymore? honestly

In college my roommate, two friends, one who like Star Trek and the other who liked Babylon 5, and myself were eating lunch one day and we were discussing the days of the old wooden sailing ships for some reason I said "Bad food. Brutal discipline. No women." absent-mindedly. My roommate looks at me and says "Ok, Commander Riker..." I hadn't even realized I was quoting Star Trek: Generations word for word until he pointed it out...

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…
