Greetings, fellow travelers upon the Space-Ship Omega! It’s I, your depraved and debauched captain. Walking around, wearing only boxer briefs and a compromised smile! How are you? Me? I’m doing decent enough. Pausing for a moment, taking a good goddamn breath. It’s hard to believe July is almost over. But, it’s also not that hard. My word, what a fucking busy month. Went to a funeral, taught two classes, went to Denver, ate too much. However, I’m done! Done teaching, at least until September.
Thus, I’m stoked to spend this time reconnecting with you all. Here on the blog! Hopefully this weekend, on Twitch!
What are you up to this week? Playing anything? Watching anything? What measures are you taking to stay cool, as the Earth melts and hope evaporates? I wanna know!
I’ll go first.
Stranger Things, also known as the Very Popular Nostalgia Vulture, is turning its eyes towards summer. Yup, the show is about to mine a previously unexploited source of 80s nostalgia — the summer flick.
This news is going to excite a lot of people. I am not one of those people.
Stranger Things season 3, the follow-up to the shit-ass Stranger Things season 2, now has an official teaser.
…and a fucking hearty salutation to everyone! As I predicted last week, it seems that Tuesday Evenings are the new Monday Morning this semester. I’m going to level with you folks, I’m fucking tired these days. My malignant malaise is equal parts Being In The Teeth of the Semester, Chemical Imbalance, and an Ever Increasing Lack of Sunlight.
Why, just mustering up this column begs a good amount out of me.
You know, after a ten hour work day.
You know, after going to the gym.
You know, after unpacking my bags.
You know, after walking the dog.
So on, and so forth.
But, I’m here. Hopefully, you are too. This is Monday Morning Commute. On a Tuesday Evening. Within these walls, I’m going to tell you what’s getting me through the week.
What I’m watching.
What I’m playing.
I hope you’ll join me in the comments section with your own happenings.
It’s the Weekend! It’s the Open Bar. Arriving not a moment too soon, too. For some reason, it’s been a long goddamn week. That ain’t a rhetorical opener, either. Don’t know why, but this week has run me ragged. The good news, oh the good news, is that I have two fucking weddings lined up to really put the nail through my emotional skull. But, I can’t complain too much. The weekend is stacked with merriment, outside of the culturally produced, economically encouraged social obligations.
I got scalps on my mind! Nazi-hunting on my mind. Got some (wait for) stranger things on my mind too, involving the 1980s and Lovecraftian monsters.
So, all in all, I suppose I ain’t too despondent about the weekend.
Stranger Things has gotten a final trailer for its second season. I’m, I’m not watching it. I’m already in, bought in, totally in, in in.
Netflix has released a teaser Stranger Things season 2’s final trailer. Which drops tomorrow. You know, Friday the 13th. What fucking absurd, ridiculous things we type in this modern age of pop-culture news, right?
After the jump, because, you know, damn Twitter video.
Here’s a clip Stranger Things‘ second season! Like I said yesterday, Netflix and the MarketingCzars are definitely prepping our brain-palate this month for the show’s upcoming release.
Netflix drops ‘Stranger Things’ old school mobile game. Also gives a middle finger to oversaturation
Netflix has dropped a Stranger Things game on mobile devices today, seemingly out of nowhere. Assuredly the company intends on pumping the fucking brain-plate of the collective consciousness full of the Upside Down Shit, to celebrate the second season’s release this month.
