Oh, you thought you had seen the last of me? You know, me. Not the cavalcade of memes and occasional pop culture bursts that I post. Rather, the man-behind-the-man-behind-the-man?
Or, maybe I’m just bleeding banality and self-importance into a WordPress document for the ninth-year running.
Or, maybe you’re an OL regular who just sort of expected me to return when I found a moment in the existential rip tide. You know, a moment where I can stick my head briefly above water. A moment where I can share what I’m up to in this weird wild world.
Well, that moment is now, my friends! And, I must confess that I’m pushing through considerable fatigue to puke this up quick! This Monday Morning Commute! The weekly column where I share the arts and farts I’m currently enjoying. Or anticipating. I hope you’ll join me in the comments section, letting me know what you’re up to this week!
Last week, rumors dropped that the Minds Behind Bond want Richard Madden to replace Daniel Craig. I only know the dude from Thrones, so I cringed at the suggestion. However, this trailer has persuaded me. Okay. I get it. Sure.
I’m here for anything regarding Damon Lindelof’s and HBO’s Watchmen remix. So, watch me shamelessly eat up a silly teaser image from Lindelof. Watch me!
Check it out after the jump.
Microsoft is close to buying Obsidian Entertainment, may actually have first-party games worth buying soon
Microsoft don’t have any fucking exclusives I care about, man. But, the company has been going on a shopping spree lately. They announced a slew of acquisitions at E3, and now they’re close to snagging Obsidian. At least they ain’t taking their lack of exclusive library laying down anymore.
Fuck to the yes, my friends. Black Panther was fantastic. Additionally, it was also very much a sliver of Ryan Coogler’s soul. So, it is fantastic that he will return for the sequel.
Aw fucking yeah, my dudes. The third season of True Detective is arriving next January! Stoked. After all, nothing says underscoring the pall of winter like a nice fucking brutal detective series.
Jupiter’s moon Europa got five-story spikes of ice. Sounds dope, makes landing on the moon a pain in the ass
Space is fucking metal, my dudes. Jupiter’s moon Europa has got five-story spikes of ice! This sounds fucking dope! However, it makes the prospect of landing on Europa decidedly more difficult.
Are ya’ll excited for this shit? I haven’t even seen Split, but I’m beginning to vaguely wonder if I’m missing out.
James Gunn is going to write and possibly direct ‘Suicide Squad 2’ which makes perfect fucking sense
The first Suicide Squad desperately wanted to be DC’s Guardians of the Galaxy equivalent. It emphatically was not. However, the sequel just might be. Cause it’s looking like James Gunn is going to be writing and directing the motherfucker.
Microsoft, sensibly, has decided to roll out their own game streaming service.
