Well, it’s official, motherfuckers. Blade Runner is the past. Instead of being a clarion call about the direction we were heading, it’s now officially yet another warning wasted. But, hey! What the fuck can you do. I suppose continue sallying forth towards our inevitable destruction. Or at the least, towards Blade Runner 2049. An equally foreboding portent.
But, the good news! You don’t have to do it alone. As long as the Space-Ship Omega is humming through the digital cosmos, you have a hearth to call your own. As, every weekend, we gather around said hearth. For the Open Bar!
Within these walls, around this hearth, we share what we’re up to during a given weekend. And, I hope you’ll join me! What the fuck is happening this weekend in your life? Are you playing some Fallen Order? Stressfully picking up accouterments for Thanksgiving dinner? Diligently scouring Black Friday ads for where you’re going to inevitably punch a grandma in the tits over a TV?
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!
Hey friends! It’s time for the Open Bar! The chance to hang out with the denizens of Space-Ship Omega throughout the weekend! In fact, it’s the only place and chance to hang out with (Bateman and) me this weekend! I know, I know. Will we ever stream again?
We will next weekend!
And the following week, we got a special stream on Thanksgiving! Seriously!
It ’tis I, the booty hunter! You know me! The man who can stare at gifs of butts on Tumblr for hours, but is always late with Monday Morning Commute. Listen! Listen. Booty hunting is a complicated profession. But more than that, it is gloriously passive. Way easier to watch ’em giggle than to pen something. Even slop! Even slop such as this, I know.
But! The booty hunter has arrived, and I’ve got with me my weekly satchel of sacred distractions that are getting me through the week. And oh, fuck, do I hate the weeks lately. Dark as fuck. Cold as fuck. I want to bury myself in blankets and caloric excess and wait for Spring. But, I can’t yield just yet. I mean, we got a significant amount of fucking months to go, and I can’t throw in the towel.
So this here is Monday Morning Commute! And the forthcoming are what I’m enjoying or looking forward to this week! I hope you’ll share your own satchel of sacred distractions in the comments section!
I must admit, I’m going to be quick! Dinner is on the way, and The Mandalorian awaits me. If I can punch this out prior to Mr. Door Dash arriving, I’ll be ecstatic.
Man. Another trailer for The Mandalorian. Another wet spot in my fucking undies. Straight-up, this show looks so fucking good.
Fucking Hell, dudes. If this trailer for The Mandalorian is any indication, Jon Favreau has fucking crushed it.
‘The Mandalorian’ gets official poster ahead of its D23 panel today. Give me this show in my fucking veins!
We got ourselves a trailer for The Mandalorian coming today. Figgity-fuck yeah! (?) And if you know the trailer is going to draw the cream from your balls, then this poster is a good bit of foreplay.
‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2 currently being written by Jon Favreau. Now, uh, give us the first season!
Jon Favreau ain’t sitting around, folks. Dude is already writing The Mandalorian season 2. And, judging from the sizzle reel of the first season that leaked, this is very good news.
From what I’ve seen courtesy of a bootlegged teaser and sizzle reel, The Mandalorian is fucking rad. So gimme a hell yeah to renewing it and bringing back Favreau.
Everything I’ve seen from The Mandalorian (including leaked footage of yesterday’s teaser scenes, shh) has me torqued for this show. Case in point: the official logo.
