according to the all-seeing eye of agamotto

28 Oct

…Benedict Cumberbatch is Doctor Strange. Again. This week. Maybe. Probably. Well, maybe not the Eye, but Deadline reported it yesterday, and everyone, including the major news media (like CNN and stuff) have run with it. It’s not bad casting, to be sure – I think he’d do a good job with it. However, I’m going […]

local mid-term political round-up, plus some non-local color

27 Oct

In about a week, we as Americans will be going to the polls once again to elect our representatives in government. This year, it’s the whole House of Representatives, one-third of the US Senate, a bunch of state governors, and various and sundry local officials, depending on where you are. In my corner of the […]

i quit. i give up.

27 Oct

Hello Monday. I was already done with you and your crap by 8am. Good riddance to you, now leave me alone. I’m not in the car driving to Ohio today, which is not unwelcome, though the work thing I was supposed to do this week has already been cancelled twice. I really kind of want […]

dammit, hydra

23 Oct

The teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron was supposed to drop with next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but there was a leak last night (which Marvel blamed on HYDRA), so Marvel just went ahead and officially released it early. At the moment, I’m kind of embed-challenged, but you can see the trailer by […]

things I did this weekend

20 Oct

Because absolutely nobody cares, including me (not caring that nobody cares): Saw my friend Steve’s rockin’ band Cha Cha’s Cadillac absolutely tear up an Irish pub. Early in the first set, the manager told them they need to play much quieter. They turned everything *way* up. \m/ Partook of what was likely the world’s blandest […]

16 Oct

Warning: comic book deep-geekery™ ahead There’s been lots of Marvel movie news floating around the internet the last couple of weeks, the biggest news being the apparent set up of the Civil War arc in Cap 3 with prominent appearances by Robert Downey Jr. leading into giant special event pictures down the road. See also […]

my friends can write

14 Oct

So, it’s only Tuesday morning (and given that Monday doesn’t count this week because of a bank holiday celebrating European Imperialism), but I’m pretty sure the following literary image is going to be the best thing I’ll read this week: …went down like a sack of potatoes. Cheap, hungover potatoes. The sort they’d throw out […]

unseaming

07 Oct

I told you I was going to link to this one again today. It’s the perfect autumn book; all the right sorts of creepy across fourteen stories of horror and dark fantasy. Here’s Antimatter’s promo site, filled with all kinds of amazing reviews. I’ve read it. It’s brilliant. Now, click on this link to buy […]

virginia is finally for *all* lovers

06 Oct

So, as I write this, marriage equality has been the law of the land in Virginia for approximately seven minutes. So yeah, good news. Not only good for Virginia, but as the Supreme Court declined to hear appeals on the marriage equality cases in the Fourth and Seventh Curuit courts, the legal impediments have fallen, […]

i get knocked down, but I get up again

06 Oct

T’was quiet for a week or thereabouts in these parts. I’ve been busy with work and life, is all. Plus, I got sick there for a couple of days. Wasn’t fun. Only a couple of things to report, but they might be of interest to some folks. Probably not. First of all, another announcement from […]
