Monday Morning Commute: This Is All A Rental

this is all a rental

This is all a rental.

From the computer you’re typing on to the meat-sack you’re inhabiting. All will be recycled, reused, converted into a variety of different forms. In my case, very much upcycled. Rejoice for as long as the collection of atoms, elements, and moments that is You can successfully stave off Entropy.

This is all a rental.

You’re slowing down. Dissolving. Inching closer to the Bin where your reconstitution shall take place.

But while we’re here, while This Matter still makes You, let’s have some fun. This is Monday Morning Commute. The column where You share what you’re intending to do during the week. So long as your dissolving, perpetually-ending, decaying meat-sack allows you.

This is all a rental.

What a fucking group! Now the developer has dropped an official reveal trailer and…it seems fucking awesome. Hard as Shit to Explain, but fucking awesome. Totally gelling with my recent Lovecraft obsession, offering up a seemingly haunted, and uncomfortable woods to explore. And stuff.

Just watch the trailer.

The Master of Unlocking.

Goddamn. Maybe it’s the time passed, maybe my the rotting carcass, but I had forgotten a lot of the dope scenes this Resident Evil Remaster trailer reminded me of from my gaming past. And fuck!, that’s a huge sentence. So let’s just roll clip.

‘Winter Soldier’ directors the Russo Brothers helming ‘Community’ season premiere


You can, uh, take the Community directors out of the community, but you can’t take the community out of them? What the…what the fuck am I trying to say? Uh. In brief. The Russo Brothers, hot off Winter Soldier, are returning to their roots to direct the season premiere of Community. Which is gnarly.

The Future! – Doctors have implanted a 3D-printed vertebra for first time

Three-Dee Vertebra

Man, I’m falling behind on the times. First, I didn’t know that water clouds were really fucking rare in the solar system, and now it appears that motherfuckers are straight-up changing out bones with 3D-printed replacements these days. And I had no idea! But, I’m totally hip to the vertebra scene, man. For instance. I totally know that it was just recently that a 3D-printed vertebra was implanted in a human for the first time.

Joaquin Phoenix totally close to being named ‘Doctor Strange’

Joaquin Phoenix

It appears that Joaquin Phoenix is going to continue keeping it strange. Doctor Strange!, that is! (I HATE MYSELF AND MY WRITING.) Some time ago this summer (depending when/where you exist within the space-time continuum) it was announced that Phoenix was going to be nabbing the role of Marvel’s Mystic. Then! Silence. Murmurs. Now! Confirmation.
