So mum decided to “stick it to the man” by not paying our Comcast bill, because they kept fucking up and overcharging us…for like four months. Now our everything is shut off, so y’all probably won’t be seeing much of me in the evenings for a while.
I mean, I’ll live, I’ve got pretty much all of X-Men Evolution downloaded. Plus I need to clean my shelves.
I’ll just…do stuff.
Having fun with Kid Flash and Impulse Iris at DragonCon!
I think that’s the first Irey West I’ve ever seen, how cute!
I don’t want my confusion over rubbers to become a popular post.
Did you know that in certain European countries it is illegal to display any sort of Nazi symbol? What the fascist white supremacist neo-Nazi scum of Germany, France, etc. have been doing is displaying the Confederate flag instead, because there is no ban on it.
So the next time someone tries to tell you that the flag of the Confederacy has nothing to do with racism, remember that actual Nazis are using it as their preferred symbol, and please remind them that they are actually pieces of literal shit.
"The Confederate flag is just a symbol of states rights!"
That’s both the rallying cry for American racists everywhere, and something I literally heard at the 7-Eleven in my plaza, in Florida, less than four days ago.
I’ve realized the reason the vast majority of superhero deconstructions actually fall flat is because the writers make the mistake of assuming the Marvel and DCU are so much like the real world, and just lazily copy and past real world ethical issues to seem edgy and modern.
And like it just doesn’t work. Like we can talk about the relevancy of Superman and why he isn’t as popular anymore in a real world context, but do you honestly think in-universe, people give a shit about Superman seeming too old fashioned or not being as cool as Batman? No, they’re happy someone can punch out those goddamn alien invaders that show up in Metropolis every other week.
Or all these allegories about organizations like S.H.I.E.L.D. overreaching their authority or moving into Orwellian territory. Yeah, in the real world that’d be fucking terrifying. In a world where alien dragons invade New York and kill a bunch of people or demon overlords try to destroy the planet or evil supervillains go on rampages that routinely injure or kill dozens of people? I’m happy there’s someone keeping an eye on those guys and using advanced technology to try and stop them.
Same thing for all these “There’s not enough oversight for the Avengers and Justice League!” stories.
This has been brought to you by “I just read Superman: Grounded and nearly hurled it across the room.”
Oh christ, tell me about it. I’ve been really feeling this in the Bendis run of Uncanny X-Men, and the last arc of the first volume of Wolverine and the X-Men. I mean, with that first one, it mostly boils down to shitty writing, but the second one literally had undercover S.H.I.E.L.D. agents doped on MGH (mutant growth hormone, gives you powers) placed in a school.
And it was pretty much resolved with a hand-wave and a mind-wipe, after one of the agents went nuts and decided that her assignment was to blow up the school. Full of teenagers who are essentially there for their own protection at this point, can’t state that enough.
But seriously, characters like General Lane who essentially exist to give a “realist” narrative, and storylines where the entire point is “something’s gotta be done about those Kryptonians who aren’t actually doing anything other than helping” (cought SUPERWOMAN cough) need to just
not happen anymore.
If they're British rubbers are erasers
Oh my god.
No matter what culture
rubbers are used to either prevent or remove mistakes.
oh yeah today i brought some really cute zombie rubbers
You bought some zombie whats?!
The intern squeezed the package of a melted coconut pop a little too hard, and it exploded.
Mikey: It looks like someone came all over me!
Me: That's not exactly an unusual look for you, Mikey.

Logan is such an asshole.
If he knew Pietro as an adult well enough that he knew details about where he grew up, then he probably knew beforehand that he was sending Quicksilver to break his own dad out of prison. The dad he’d never met before. Charles didn’t have his powers at that point, so there’s no way he could have been called out on it, either.
I bet he was just having a little laugh to himself about it the whole sequence.
Something weird was going on with my portable speaker, so I decided to work on it.
Me: Fixed it!
Dad: What was wrong?
Me: No idea.
Dad: So, how'd you fix it?
Me: Whacked it on the counter.
and yet you still look dazzling.
It’s the hair. The day after I wash my hair is always my best hair day.
