‘Dune’ Trailer: A gorgeous and foreboding preview and I have no idea how this movie got made

Man, they finally dropped the first trailer for Dune. Now admittedly, I haven’t read the book. But this trailer is fucking gorgeous. It’s also spell-bindingly esotetic, and I have no idea how it was made. This gorgeous, dark motherfucker cost $150 million. Like, okay! I’m more than stoked, but I balk at the idea that it’s going to drag in enough of Joe and Pam Mainstreet to make its money back.

Still glad it exists, though!

No streaming this week! Stay strong, we’ll be back next week!

Hey all, we’re taking the week off from streaming. Truthfully, I probably need it mentally, given that it’s the first week of classes. But, real life is also intervening. Tonight, Bags and I have a fantasy football draft, and Saturday the dude has a wedding.

So These Are Comic Books (09.02.2020) – The Only Good God Is A Dead God

so these are comic books - september 2

Aw shit, motherfuckers! Flick the lights back on, and flick your bean, I’m back! You see what that is? A little mania to spice up the fact that my bi-polar ass took some time off from this column! A little sleight of hand that I’ve revealed, by acknowledging my sleight of hand! Anyways, I’m freshly back from the comic shop! Where I snagged a couple comics, lamented the selling out of a couple comics, and generally enjoyed my Saturday jaunt.

I gotta say, comic books are a real great litmus test for my mental health. As a dude with anxiety, the prospect of trying to find sold out issues, catch-up on titles I’m interested in but have been running for a couple of years can really serve as a gauge for how I’m doing. Am I overwhelmed by the situation? Whelp, it’s that time of year where Ian is eating too much pizza, drinking too many energy drinks, and vibrating in sadness. Am I invigorated by this new world to explore? Whelp, it’s that time of year where Ian is working out, drinking water, and vibrating in happiness.

Where am I write now? Somewhere in-between! And I hope to find you full-hogged, flush-cheeked, and excited to Dance The Dance De La Comic Book with me!

So These Are Comic Books, baby!

Weekend Open Bar: September.

weekend open bar september

Hey, friends! It’s September, and I hope you’re all settling into the transitioning of seasons. As well, apologies for not penning columns as of late. Or, rather, typing. You know. Whatever the case, transmuting thoughts into symbols which make sense to you all. I’m just in a fucking funk, man. And when that shit happens, my expression-based faculties wither. Don’t wanna do anything other than fall inwards! That said, I’m hoping to blast out the comic books column this weekend, and high-five you fuckers in here.

The source of the malaise? Asides from Dead Cells? I think it’s emanating from a general sense of anxiety about teaching online, and the sadness that comes with it. Just not stoked, man. At all!
