Keep cool, Hypothetical Reader, it’s just another edition of Fun-Size Friday. Though the pop culture well may have dried up a bit as of late, I figure there’s still just enough that happened in the last week to last me a couple hundred words at least. I mean, I’m not calling this thing “fun-size” for nothing. With all that out of the way, let’s see what we can scrape up this week.Continue reading “Fun-Size Friday | 4-17-20 | Extreme Home Takeover: Quarantine Edition”
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”
Sup, voice in my head! It’s been a while.
PROBABLY FOR THE BEST, CONSIDERING. WHAT’S ON OUR MIND TODAY?
Well as you know we got some pretty big news out of the blue on Tuesday.
CAPTAIN MARVEL LOVES PUNCHING OLD PEOPLE.
What?! Where did that come from?
THERE WAS A LOT OF WEIRD NEWS ON TUESDAY. SPEAKING OF, WHY WAS MARIO CART TRENDING ON TWITTER?
I dunno, Twitter is weird. For now I want to talk about the news that Netflix is adapting Avatar: The Last Airbender into a new live-action TV series!
The last week has been an unusually busy one even by my usual standards, full of good things (I went to my first comic book convention!) and less-than-good things (work). None of that matters now though because I just remembered that Netflix dropped the full first season of The Dragon Prince to stream yesterday and I literally can’t focus on anything else until I sit down and watch this thing. It’s taking everything I’ve got just to finish writing this introduction!
For those of you who don’t know or may have forgot (like me), The Dragon Prince is the latest offering from co-creator Aaron Ehasz, a writer whose resume includes one of my all-time favorite animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. As both a co-executive producer and the head writer, Ehasz was responsible for penning some of the very best episodes of Avatar, so you’ll forgive me if I’m going into this with unrealistically high expectations. My only real concern is the animation; in still photos it looks good enough but just from watching the trailer I’m a little confused why they went with this particular style. Perhaps it’ll grow on me.
Anyway, seeing how Netflix is dropping nine episodes all at once I figured I’d try what all the cool kids are doing nowadays and attempt a “binge watch”. Then I figured as long as I’m doing this, heck, I might as well write my thoughts on each episode as I watch them because, I dunno, I need to write something this week. I’m gonna do my best to keep my thoughts as vague and spoiler-free as possible but, you know, read at your own risk.
