Monday Morning Commute: On A Tuesday, Fuck Me.

Monday Morning Commute

Yeah well fuck me, I didn’t get this thing up yesterday. No good excuses, aside from poor time management. My brother works seventy-five hours a week and then churns out an Octoberfeast everyday. File under: Why  Pepsibones has a 4.0 and I’m a slacker. Let’s do this anyways.

Every Monday I’m going to detail the various things I’m either currently or will be watching, reading, playing, and listening to in the next seven days. It’s Monday. You’ve got a long week of school, work, or compulsive masturbation to get through. Tell me the arts that you’re indulging in, to stave off suicide.


Playing / World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King

Yesterday I made the mistake of starting a Death Knight in WotLK. Whoops. Double whoops. After months of friends telling me that I “simply totally positively” had to check out their first few levels, I finally caved. Total bad call. Now I’m addicted to leveling another character. Just bail out, and don’t even try. WotLK is a life choice. A poor one.

If I was a rich man with infinite time, I would check out Borderlands. But it simply comes out at an awful time. There’s a zillion releases aside from it, demanding my time and attention. They planned poorly.


Watching / Paranormal Activity

I’ve already made my feelings regarding Paranormal Activity known. And a couple of people actually saw the movie based on my recommendation. This sort of freaked me out, since it meant people respected my opinion. I’m honored, now get far away from me, for I will fail you yet. That said, I can’t stop raving about this movie. I’m probably hyping it up way past sensible levels. But I really dug it, and I have a hankering to see it again.


Listening / Skeletonwitch: Breathing Fire

I hadn’t heard of these guys until this morning. I read a review for them over at the other site I write for, and I was sold instantly. Why? They’re called Skeletonwitch. C’mon. And they have a sweet Testament rip-off font in their logo, and they play metal.

Oh, and the music is decent too.


Reading / Fantastic Four: 570- / Hickman and Eaglesham’s current run.

When Mark Millar left Fantastic Four I decided it was time to drop the title again. I never really dug the crap out of the characters, and I generally follow authors and not titles. I’m a slut. But I heard nothing but good things about this run. My local comic shop owner, Ed Brubaker on his Twitter, it was too much to deny. Brubaker’s Captain America / Daredevil are some of my favorite runs in recent memory, and if he said that Hickman’s story was good, it was enough for me. He wasn’t wrong. Basic premise? Richards joins some sort of super group called The Council, which seems to be comprised of…alternate Earth’s Reeds. Their plan? Solve Everything. Seriously, check it out.
