Current Look away from the internet for one minute and suddenly everyone's on about so and so dropping some baby batter on a cat. Look if I had to know that now you do too.

I really want a glass of fruit punch but I can't be fucked to get off the couch and walk to the kitchen. Am I brave enough to ask my spouse to get it for me? The answer is no. No I'm not.

I thought a mental cleanse would be like a juice cleanse but instead it just involved copious amounts of alcohol and the revelation that there's more to a juice cleanse than chugging fruit juice.

For Valentine's Day at the office the management is getting us all Taco Bell and really I can't think of a better message of love and appreciation quite like giving the entire staff the runs.

Look, I got lost on the way to getting some jajangmyeon and it'd be foolish to leave now.

Well, Anthem is an unfixable royal mess that gets worse with each patch.


The best thing about Anthem is as a former SWTOR player (as in, the last time BioWare tried to do an online co-op experience thing) is that I can sit back and be all "Hah, told you so" because if there's one thing BioWare's been good at for years it's bungling their way towards minor profitability.
Good. This is good.
Will there be sandwitches
Do the side characters have a separate sheet or are we in the 'await further instruction' period
With the influx of interested parties I am willing to be one of those sorts the core bunch meets at the rest stop/destination.

The problem with Captain Marvel is that it was bland as shit. Judging it on Marvel 'phase' standards doesn't change the awfully written main character and largely boring plot.

It was basically the movie version of Mass Effect Andromeda.


The main character wasn't awfully written, the major issue was more structure and style more than anything because the movie is shot like an indie film and the story had many different contributors. The biggest problem is that it doesn't care to use its 90s setting for anything other than brief window dressing. Judging it on phase standards is perfectly fair given that phase 1 is four movies that are super stiff and rocky and uneven (two of which are outright bad) and then bookended by two that essentially carry the weight.

Captain Marvel is about the second best straight origin movie in the MCU because the origin movies are the worst ones; it took two solo movies and two team ups before Thor became not shit and it took a solo movie and a team up before they figured out that Captain America was more than a Nazi puncher only to then have him punch more Nazis anyway. Captain Marvel would fit right at home in a pre-The Avengers world but because the MCU is what it is, Captain Marvel ultimately feels like a filler stopgap between Infinity War and Endgame, much like Ant-Man and the Wasp, and in both of those cases the only part that ultimately advances the plot happens at the end. If she wasn't posed to be one of the new generation of characters they likely could've Black Panthered it but whatever, it made decent money and was a serviceable appetizer to the one people give a shit about.

I personally liked it even with the bizarre changes from the comics that ultimately weaken the whole reason Carol takes up the mantle anyway. Even as arguable the only fan of the character in the comics I didn't love it but it was enjoyable and fine and that's more than I can say for a good chunk of first outings.
I say misfit but in the interest of space and whatnot I'm willing to be someone at the first resting spot/city.
But did something actually get stolen and if not will there be thefts of something more physical than hearts.

Seems to have worked despite only giving it the awards people expected it to be awarded.


I'm still upset that Green Book won.
Captain Marvel was bland as shit.


The problem with Captain Marvel was that it was a Phase 1 movie in a Phase 3 world, which isn't a bad thing it's just an unfortunate part of living in an entertainment world dominated consistently by Marvel movies. It had the reverse Wonder Woman problem where Captain Marvel started weak and found its footing while Wonder Woman had an okay start and constantly stumbled into its godawful final third.
