I'm sorry, but I'm still shocked by Ricard Daley's decision to not to run for mayor of Chicago again. It's not that I thought the guy was great or perfect or evil or whatever, but he was mayor for something like 21 years and faced no serious threat to his position. The running joke was that he's mayor for life. Now, there's going to be a free-for-all come election season. Place your bets. Vote early, vote often.
Under The Red Hood: I finally saw this movie. I thought it was really fun! I hadn't read any of the comics it was based on, but I had no problem following the story. There's a new threat in Gotham City and Bats is forced to face his greatest failure.Very action packed and actually suspenseful. I enjoyed the art style and the voice acting. I liked the confrontation at the end between Jason Todd and Batman, it dealt with the most debated issue among Bat-fans in a way that was not too hokey.
Scarlet #2: I'm still enjoying it, but it's still artsy "punisher-girl". I really hope next issue confronts systematic inequalities or the means of production or mass media or something that makes it more than just a well done revenge story. I LIKE well done revenge stories, but this was sold as something beyond just that.
I'm eating not so healthily today. Got my ham hocks, some broccoli...gonna smother in cheese and then wash it all down with beer.YUM!
Another great pop song disguised as a hard rock/metal song is "Little Guitars" by Van Halen. Sing along, "..ANNEEE TIYMME!!"
