Monday Morning Commute: War Forged
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!
Thinking about: Mandy (2018)
What a severely hypnotic, challenging, disturbing, and fantastic movie. Saw it over the weekend.
They’re like, if One Direction grew up listening to Das Racist and Death Grips? Or something?
Sweating: Daredevil (s3)
At this point, I don’t really give two tugs of a dead deity’s dicks about Netflix’s Marvel shows. However, I do genuinely two enthusiastic tugs of a dead deity’s dick about Matty Murdock and his adventures.
Reading: Kim Stanley Robinson’s New York 2140
Hey, the world is melting. So, why not read some speculative science-fiction? You know, about when New York finally floods.
Thinking about: American Vandal (s2)
Man, I fucking love this series. Not only is it a fantastic satire of true crime documentaries, but it’s also a really enjoyable interrogation of high school, and all the laughs and low lights that come along with it.
Listening: Bas’ Milky Way
I don’t know how to describe Bas. Chill rap? Golden sunset hip-hop? Whatever the case, I find him and his latest effort fantastically relaxing.
Sweating: Halloween (2018)
I should have had a good feeling when Halloween (2018) got John Carpenter’s blessing. But, I remained skeptical. However, man, the reviews are pouring out, and all signs point towards this movie fucking rocking. Awesome. Awesome!
Playing: Marvel’s Spider-Man
I really enjoy Marvel’s Spider-Man. And yet! And yet, I don’t find it particularly compelling. In other words, I can happily go a week without playing it. But at the same time, I can happily burn four hours on a Saturday afternoon playing it. It’s a weird situation, friends.
That’s it for me, friends. What are you up to this week? What are you enjoying lately? Let’s chat.
