Hey! Desktop Thursdays! Where I show you my goddamn worlds — populated by goddamn madness, beauty, reluctance, pensiveness, and really just a panoply of garbage!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, I skipped last week. Sue me! I have a very good attorney, and though he specializes in Bird Law, I think he can probably do me right.
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, I’m over-caffeinated and ready. Oh, so ready. To rock! Here are views from across my existence the past two weeks. My worlds done tangible, done intangible, done textual. All of them, for your pleasure. I hope. Oh, I hope. You’ll share your own world(s) in the comments section!
Lin-Manuel Miranda is not letting his post-Hamilton life allow for much respite. Not only is he working on a secret project for Disney, he is also producing adaptations of The Kingkiller Chronicle. A property I do not know.
Is this news? Is this a garbage headline? Is it worth reporting anyways? I don’t know, yes, and I think so. Tarantino has spent the last four years researching the 1970s for his next project. Which may not be a movie. Like I said, not really news. However, I am intrigued.
Torn, man. I sort of file this under “baseless rumor”, and I don’t want to post it. But I also sort it under “fun fanboy speculation”, you know? Throw some chum to those of us geek-sharks here at OL. So here we have it. Marvel Studios and Fox finally teaming up down the road? Makes a lot of sense. Too much sense.
Man. I haven’t played the original Super Mario Bros., in a hot minute. I’m absolutely certain however that it would take me significantly more time than 15-minutes to beat the game, using my eyes.
Come one, come all, into Monday Morning Commute. The one-stop weekly existential circle jerk for everyone: from degenerates, to sinful nuts. From scholars, to scatalogical 7-Eleven workers. I want you all. Staring into the Cosmos, I bellow. Give me your perverted, give me your poor. Your despondent, your determined, your omni-dimensional, poly-sexual, pan-physical space lords. I want you all, so long as you follow the faintly scrawled rules upon the walls of this residence– the pop culture geek lord glory hole in the stank bathroom of the Internet. First, you listen to what I’m looking forward to this week. Second, you respond in kind, sharing your own anticipations and musings, so long as you follow the golden rule: god damn it, you’ve got to be kind.
Welcome! SpartanFuckLords! To Tuesday Afternoon Commute! The day late edition of Monday Morning Commute! I’ll level with you. I worked until 7:45 pm yesterday. By the time I got home (8:30), ate dinner (turkey chili) and began to relax (put on sweatpants and ate an entire box of Star Wars Chez-Its while laying down), I was no longer willing to open my backpack. Unleash my computer. Type up this column! But now it’s here! Monday Morning Commute! By way of Tuesday Afternoon Commute!
This column! Where we share the ArtsFartsBooksBeatsVideoGamesEtc we are looking forward to enjoying during a given week! I’ll go first! Then you share what you’re up to this week! What are you drinking? Playing? Reading? Ruminating over? Let me know~
I don’t know what to make of Jessica Jones. I never read Alias back in the day, though I know it was pretty dope. I haven’t gotten much out of these first two teaser trailers. But yet I remain optimistic (while laying in my MCU fanboy pajamas and staring longingly at a picture of Kevin Feige). What do you take out of these trailers?
Maybe! It’s “purported” concept art. But I’m buying it for two reasons. First, it’s as craptacular looking as all Marvel concept art. Second, it confirms the reports of who was on what side from a bit back. Thoughts?
