A personal matter has come up that needs to be taken care of sooner rather than later. It will leave me unable to attend the MCBA St.Paul Comicon this year.Making this the first MCBA Comicon I have missed since I started going in 1999.
This is NOT due to the show, or it’s all volunteer staff, I still highly recommend you go! I have no doubt they will put on a great 30th anniversary show, with a ton of stuff to see, lot’s of great guests to meet.

Saw Infinity war, I will now post without revealing anything about the movie and putting a warning on just in case..it’s real easy, watch.
SPOILER ALERT
.
.
.
this movie was like
1-having my eyes gang banged by a dozen movie posters
2-watching two wrestle manias at double speed with all the pre-match interviews and exposition edited out
3-sort of liking hot dogs,and being forced to try to win a hot dog eating contest.
If I did want to spoil this movie, I don’t think I could, because I couldn’t really say I understood anything that happened in the entire 2 and 1/2 hours. I can’t even tell you if it was good or bad…I’m…just going to sit in a quiet dark room for awhile and avoid any stimulation. Because right now when I try to produce any thought at all there is just the little spinning wheel symbol in my brain, like when your laptop can’t catch up to whatever you are trying to stream.

I could have stopped Thanos myself in about two minutes (SPOILER ALERT)…


I’d have walked up and said “Buddy…Instead of using that to kill half the universe in hopes of seeking balance, just use that mind stone to get yourself to stop giving a f*ck. Because this is a bad road you’re going down. You correct the population, then you’re going to notice too many bugs, then the weather will need changing and some planets won’t have the right gravity…next thing you know people are going to start seeking you out and you’ll be getting requests to make sure their kids are pretty and they get the job they want and snow doesn’t have to be shoved. You’ll be f8cking miserable. Just will yourself to not give a f*ck , make a nice couch…and live in peaceful bliss.”

Woke up and felt like having making eggs for breakfast.  Went to the corner store and the woman in front of me was buying a six pack of Old Style beer and two bags of bbq potato chips.  It was too much to ignore, and I says “Well, that’s a healthy breakfast”.  Her and the clerk looked at me puzzled.  The clerk says ” It’s 2pm”.  and just like that the worm had turned and I was the lowlife.

In the future we will get out movies and shows by taking a pill that has been scientifically created to stimulate/trigger the exact synapses in our brains so we see the show much like we see a dream…and we will have no choice but to watch the commercials.  not long after that there will be a congressional investigation into companies altering the chemical formula in the pills further so that the commercial is triggered when we are actually dreaming.  The investigation will close after the committee finds no evidence of wrong doing.  The congressmen on the committee will have looked very well rested.

Radio Legend Art bell has died.  Spent so much time dreading Stan lee passing on, I didn’t see this coming. He was every bit the story teller and capture-er of imagination as Stan. Some thoughts on him, and comic drawn while listening to his show in this weeks mass email.

TWD season finale spoilers?  I guess…just think of the most ridiculous adaptation of the comic book ending and you’d be close enough.

Highlights include-

-the most tactically stupid “ambush” possible…you might want to oh..i dunno…surround them? so they couldn’t just run back into the woods?

-ma tov cocktails causing giant explosions after being hurled from, what we can assume from our vantage point/how much we could see around the victims, at least 50 yards away.

-a man who had his throat cut being saved by a pre-med student without even a first aid kit.

Most of the bad/ridiculous was from taking scenes that can only seem plausible in a comic book and not adapting them very well. Comic book timing is different…which leaves room to the imagination as to how people got from point a to point b, what off panel surroundings are, what is going on off panel. This element of narrative safety does not exist in live action. You’d think by season 8 they would have figured out how to reconcile that.  but, nope.

I look forward to the FTWD premier…which did not happen after TWD as promised. What we got was 15 seconds of a FTWD teaser at the end of a TWD epilogue.  In which characters who have been ambushed twice already in the span of one day, ( and Morgan having been ambushed COUNTLESS times over the course of TWD) still do not learn how to avoid an ambush.

When does Better Call Saul start?
