I Had To! It's A New Computer!

I last did this on my mother's last birthday so that's long enough. Right?

IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?

To review:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend your cool...

Opening Credits: "Where You Are"-Jewel (Eh. It works I guess.)
Waking Up: "Blowing in the Wind"-Joan Baez (Again, I suppose it works...)
First Day At School: "I Shall Believe"-Sheryl Crow (Walking in the corridor maybe?)
Falling In Love: "I Go To Sleep"-The Pretenders (If you actually listen to the lyrics, this works surprisingly well.)
Fight Song: "Golden Years"-David Bowie (A fight between the Jets and Sharks maybe...)
Breaking Up: "Modern Love"-David Bowie (That's kind of cool actually.)
Prom (Perhaps Grad Walk?): "All Along the Watchtower"-Neil Young (That would have rocked if this song was played at my graduation but...)
Life Is Good: "Eight Miles High"- The Byrds (I suppose this works if you don't listen to the lyrics...)
Mental Breakdown: "Fragile Heart"-Jewel (Eh, I guess this would work...)
Driving: "Ooby Dooby"-Roy Orbison (Am I driving a DeLorean?)
Flashback: "Trouble Me"- 10,000 Maniacs (Not sure what kind of flashback this would be.)
Getting Back Together: "Josephine"- The Wallflowers (Well, she does taste "like sugar tangerines...")
Wedding: "End of the Line"- The Traveling Wilburys (Actually, I always did want the Wilburys to perform at my wedding...)
Birth of A Child: "Imagine"-John Lennon (That's really cool.)
Final Battle: "Rainy Day Women 12 & 35"-Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Drug addiction maybe?)
Death Scene: "God Don't Make Lonely Girls"- The Wallflowers (Are these my last words?)
Funeral Song: "My Back Pages"-Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan and George Harrison (Better as End Credits me thinks)
End Credits: "Baby Don't You Do It"- The Who (Awesome closing credits.)
2nd try: "Sweetheart Like You"-Bob Dylan (Well, you have to have Dylan...)

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…
