Fun-Size Friday: the part of the show where I throw caution and common sense to the wind and basically “fanboy out” about whatever I want for a couple hundred words at a time. The last bit is key here; although I’ll occasionally ramble, I’m gonna try to keep each topic to no more than two hundred words. Other than that, nothing’s off the table here. We could talk about a new movie trailer that dropped last week, or rant about something I half-glanced at on the DC Comics subreddit, or I could just spend two hundred words pitching Marvel Studios my idea for a Thunderbolts series on Disney Plus. If that sort of thing floats your boat, Hypothetical Reader, then read on!Continue reading “FUN-SIZE FRIDAY | 2-21-20 | CASTLEVANIA, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG, AND THE WINNER FOR “BEST COMIC BOOK SOLICITATION””
Hello, hello, hello and welcome to Fun-Size
Friday Valentines Day 2020, that wonderful time of the year where I look back at the past year or so of pop culture nonsense and gush about a few personal high points and moments that I loved. None of that “ironic love” hipster nonsense here, friends; these are the things and the moments from 2019 that I genuinely and unabashedly loved, so adjust your expectations accordingly, hypothetical readers! Here they are, in no particular order, my highlights of 2019, each in two hundred words or less! This definitely isn’t a New Years Retrospective that I neglected to post, no sirree, this was aaaall planned out!
Sit back, relax, and crack open a bag of Content™ with Fun-Size Friday, my weekly
diary entry confessional repository for all of my scattered thoughts on pop culture. Anything and everything is fair game here: comic books, television shows, movies, or whatever else I feel like talking about at this particular moment. For better or for worse, this is the brand of silliness that gets me out of bed in the morning, and now I want to share a small piece of it with you, Hypothetical Reader. Now then, let’s what piqued my interest this week…
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!”
