Fun-Size Friday: it’s like Black Friday, except instead of burying you in great deals, we bury you in words. Wow, that is a bad tagline. Note to self: exclude the words “bury you” from future introductions. Morbid wordplay aside, I welcome you to my little cubic centimeter of the Internet. Whether you’re taking a break from shopping or hanging up Christmas decorations, or — most probably — you’re reading this on literally any other day of the year, I’m glad you stopped by. If you’re still curious it’s business as usual around these parts: I talk about comics, movies, tv shows, songs I can’t get out of my head, and other sorts of weirdness from the last week. Now that we’ve got the pleasantries out of the way, let’s get this crazy train rolling!Continue reading “Fun-Size Friday | 11-29-19 | Killadelphia #1, Steven Universe: Unleash The Light, & The Mandalorian 1×03”
Oh shoot it’s Fun-Size Friday again, isn’t it? Yeah, that’s — I don’t know why that would be surprising to me at this point, and yet somehow it keeps sneaking up on me. Am I one of those guys who needs a day planner or something, maybe some kind of free app? Like, do they have apps designed specifically for helpless people oblivious to the passage of time?
Also, how many more words can I can squeeze out of this “app” bit?
Yeah, forget it, let’s talk about something else, like comics! Or movies! Or whatever other weird random tangent my train of thought takes me to! That’s probably it for apps though; if it’s not Sudoku it’s pretty much outside my wheelhouse. Anyway, enough about my glaring technological blind spots, let’s talk about something I do know a thing or two about!Continue reading “FUN-SIZE FRIDAY | 11-22-19 | HEARTBEAT #1, KLAUS, & THE MANDALORIAN 1×02”
Prepare your internets, Denizens of the World Wide Interwebs, because Fun-Size Fan-Thing 2.0 is now up and running. What do I mean by “2.0”? Well, hypothetical reader, allow me to break it down: while Fun-Size will still be covering the same general subjects as before — comic books, movies, television, opinion pieces and what have you — I’ve decided to try removing the hundred-word limit to play around with the format a bit. Keeping things brief was nice at first, but now I want to open things up and see what comes tumbling out. Enough about that old nonsense though, you didn’t come for any of that. Let’s talk about some new nonsense!Continue reading “Fun-Size Friday | 11-15-19 | Folklords #1, Family Tree #1, Far Sector #1, & More!”
Hey howdy hey, friends! Fun-Size Fan-Thing welcomes you back for another weird and wonderful installment of stream-of-consciousness writing; covering comics, movies, television, and whatever else happens to be on my mind. Now, in past installments I’ve been pretty adamant about keeping each section to about a hundred words, as I have an annoying tendency to ramble on in these things. This time around though, I thought I might try waiving the word limit, mainly because I’m curious to see what happens. It may end up being a one-off, I don’t know, but I thought I’d give it a shot. Don’t worry though, I’m not gonna suddenly start dumping thousand-word essays on you; I’m just stretching my legs a bit. Now that we’ve got the preamble covered, what sort of pop culture nonsense did I take in this week?Continue reading “Fun-Size Friday | 11-8-19 | Undiscovered Country #1, Legion of Super-Heroes #1, JoJo Rabbit, and Daylight Savings Time”
Fun-Size Friday: much like an actual fun-size bag of candy, it’s got juuust enough of what you like to leave you wanting more. Kind of like mini-muffins. Sorry, I’ve got food on the brain; Halloween and all. Anyway, house rules are still in effect: I briefly cover a few comics, some movies, probably something animated, and whatever else I want to talk about in about a hundred words each. Why a hundred words? I…don’t have a good answer to that. Hmmm, food for thought. Shoot, I’m still doing it! Look, why don’t we just dig in and son of aContinue reading “Fun-Size Friday | 11-1-19 | Harleen #2, Basketful of Heads #1, Giant Days: As Time Goes By #1”
Live from the deepest recesses of the Internet, it’s inexplicably yet other edition of Fun-Size Friday! I know, I can’t believe it either, but here we are. The rules of the game are simple: I can write about anything I want (SPOILERS: there’s gonna be a lot of comic book stuff) so long as I keep each subject to no more than a hundred words. Trust me, if you give me any more than that we could be here all day. So with all that out of the way, let us go once more unto the breach or whatever!Continue reading “Fun-Size Friday | 10-25-19 | Immortal Hulk #25, Coda Vol. 3, and Animeta! Vol. 1”
