Man, it’s Baby Yoda’s world! We just living in it. The little green fucker has taken over our pop culture zeitgeist and for good reason: they’re equal parts adorable and fantastic. How the fuck you doing, friends? Hope you’re hanging in there. I’m in the dregs of the semester, pulling myself through the shit-flecked glass shards that is the last few weeks of the Fall.
But! It ain’t all hopeless. I got a lot of things to look forward to this week. And next! And, Baby Yoda is at the center of my glowing existential heartbeat. Every moment between now and Friday is just time to burn until the next episode of The Mandalorian.
Anyways, this is Monday Morning Commute! I hope you’ll join me in listing what you’re enjoying this week. What you’re looking forward to enjoying. And, anything and everything on your pop culture mind.
I’ll go first!
Oh fuck, oh shit! Rick and Morty‘s fourth season has an official premiere…month.
Marvel’s ‘Loki’ TV series lands ‘Rick and Morty’ writer as its goddamn showrunner. Man, this is gonna be good, ain’t it?
I really, really want to not give a fuck about the Marvel shows heading to Disney’s streaming service. But, the motherfuckers don’t fight fair! I mean, a Rick and Morty writer as the showrunner? Fuck.
Star Trek is a hip franchise, dudes! Totally, totally hip! How hip, you want to ask? Why, it’s got the head writer of Rick and Morty working on an animated series! Snark aside, this is actually really cool.
Here’s a really cool, albeit detail-free teaser for Rick and Morty‘s fourth season. It’s after the jump, because motherfuckers keep using Twitter video.
This, this is fucking fantastic news. Sure, we probably won’t see a new Rick and Morty episode probably until 2021, and we will only see like thirty out of these seventy episodes due to some Harmon collapse, but I’m fucking pumped.
Sometimes, man. Sometimes, I just straight-up spend too much time thinking of a post title for a Monday Morning Commute, and then I spend too much time hunting the perfect image. “Perfect”, I know. I’m trash. Anyways, how are you fucking folks doing? You stellar Garbage Lords.
Well, I’m currently pinched for time. Tomorrow I leave for the Great White North, meeting the rest of the family up there for a final service for my Nana. She sloughed the mortal coil last year, I think maybe I discussed it?, and now it’s time.
To throw Nana into the marsh behind the family home. Where her shamanistic tendencies can be unloosed, sent to interact with her fellow Reality Melters in the Gilded Plains of the OMNIVERSE.
Well, I’m currently wasting time!
So here, without further adieu, is what I’m currently enjoying, currently looking forward to, currently sweating. Let me know what you’re up to this week!
How are you folks, doing? Me? This human? This flesh-sack, organic-computer, consumption-bot? I’m doing fine.
It’s that weird period of the summer where I’m done teaching, but I still have to go into work.
Just enough of a busy schedule to spend an hour, hour-and-fifteen, or hour-and-a-half in my car, each way, for four days a week.
Just enough of a busy schedule to fight traffic to tutor a couple folks to sit idly waiting to see if anyone else is will need tutoring.
Invariably: they won’t.
Invariably: I’ll sit, eyes-crossed, soul-exhaling-a-continuous-malaise, browsing Tumblr, Facebook, whateverwhatever.
Invariably: then I leave, fighting traffic back to my domicile.
How are you folks, doing? Me? This human? This animated-rot, permanent-horndog, masturbation-factory? I’m doing fine.
This is Monday Morning Commute.
‘Rick and Morty’ Season 3 Trailer: Premiering July 30, bringing some nihilistic laughs to your summer
Holy shit: Rick and Morty‘s third season is dropping in a month. Holy shit: here’s a trailer for said season.
Rick and Morty‘s third season debuted this past Saturday, on April 1. The ultimate troll job. An incredible development that I deemed a joke due to the date, which turned out to be an incredible development. I feel I’m not alone in my initial reaction. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the premiere. ‘Cause you’re going to be waiting until “later this summer” for the rest of the show’s third season.
