Fun-Size Friday | 3-27-20 | Keep Calm & Remain Indoors!

Oh, hi there! Didn’t hear you come in. Or…remember letting you in. Actually, how did you get in here?

Hmmm, well that sounds like a perfectly reasonable answer. I’m immediately convinced! As it happens you’ve come just in time for another edition of Fun-Size Friday, where I talk about pop culture nonsense from the last couple days. Comics, cartoons, movies, and random celebrity tweets are but a few of the subjects we can cover here, the only caveat is that I keep each subject to two hundred words or less.

“Why two hundred words”, you ask? Well, my sketchily dressed friend, not every question has a perfectly reasonable answer. Sometimes in life stuff just happens, like all this broken glass that’s mysteriously appeared all over my floor. So, pull up a chair, put down your conspicuously large burlap sack, and listen as I regale you with short tales of pointless fluff!

Fun-Size Friday | 3-20-20 | It Can’t All Be Bad News, Right?

Hey there! Seeing as you’ve got nowhere else to go right now, what with that pandemic business going on right now, you might as well settle in (or settle for) another edition of Fun-Size Friday! Different day, same rules: this is my opportunity to cover whatever pop culture crumbs I managed to pick up during the last week — movie delays, tv show delays, comic book delays, and ohmygosh this is all there is, isn’t it? — as long as I keep it to two hundred words or less. No wiggle room here; we’re a lean, mean, virus fighting machine, and this machine’s kicking things off with…

Fun-Size Friday | 3-13-20 | ♫MA-MA-MA-MYYY CORONA♫

Fun-Size Friday: it’s basically what happens when a pop culture obsessed nerd decides to post his diary entries online, give or take a hundred bucks. In any case the rules are the same as always: two hundred words to talk about whatever random nonsense I imbibed over the last week — comic books, movies, pro-tips for aspiring cosplayers, etc. — so long as I keep each subject to two hundred words or less. Why two hundred words? Well, we started with a hundred words and that didn’t work, then we tried getting rid of the limit altogether and that made it worse, so now we’re trying a third thing. Yes, a writer I may be, but a consistent writer I most certainly am not. Anyway, enough self-deprecating humor, let’s take a look back at another week of wacky hijinx, starting with…

Fun-Size Friday | 3-6-20 | Al PACINO’S FAVORITE COMIC, NO TIME TO DIE, & MY MINI-MARVEL RANT

Welcome, Hypothetical Reader, to another non-hypothetical edition of Fun-Size Friday! This is the place where I sit down and chew the fat, talking about whatever subject tickles my fancy from the last week. It could be me talking about a new movie trailer or Reddit post I read or just some obscure comic book character I found on Wikipedia. Anything and everything is on the table, so long as I keep each topic to no more than two hundred words. I tend to ramble, you see, and we’ve all got better stuff to do, so why waste words, am I right? Anyway, enough explanations, let’s get to writin’!

FUN-SIZE FRIDAY | 2-28-20 | SUICIDE SQUAD, KIPO AND THE AGE OF WONDERBEASTS, & DOCTOR WHO

Something something something Fun-Size Friday! Time for me to go back and gauge my thoughts on pop culture nonsense from the last week, from comics to stupid tweets and everything in between. The rules are simple: I only have two hundred words to talk about each topic, as arbitrarily dictated by…myself. Anyway, let’s get right into it…

FUN-SIZE FRIDAY | 2-21-20 | CASTLEVANIA, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG, AND THE WINNER FOR “BEST COMIC BOOK SOLICITATION”

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!
