Just take my money right now.
Like, right now.
I am literally throwing cash at my monitor in the hopes tickets will fall out the other side.
On a side note, with a show of hands who also owns the 1966 Batman Movie?

|"I sense I'm being watched."|
I just watched Marvel's Jessica Jones AKA 1000 Cuts and holy blood bath, Batman (vs. Superman I fear isn't going to be anywhere near as good as this but I still hold hope it will try). Just wow. Well done! to the writers, cast, and crew of the series. The series has been very good. I recommend it highly!
My one complaint? If another Marvel series on Netflix starts with the hero trying to prove a woman innocent of murder I may have to drag out my tinfoil hat and cry CONSPIRACY!
I try very hard to avoid spoilers when I catch up on shows. Afterward I jump into the minutia with an abandon matched only in the Abbey of Theleme.
|Told you I was totally geeking right now. Yes, I actually read the source material by Rabelais. So there!|
So imagine my surprise when the character Will Simpson (played by Will Traval) is given Red, White, and Blue pills by the mysterious Dr. Kozlov after having a bomb go off in his face.
Yes, I know the interwebs are full of sites explaining each character but having avoided them I was dumbstruck by what appears to be a reference to, or intro of, the Marvel character Nuke from Daredevil #232, which you see in my gentle hand in the photo above. Then in the episode I watched tonight he takes out his lighter and it has the markings we see on Nuke's face in the comics. In brief, he was a damaged product of a modern super soldier program. I don't want to say more in case someone reading this hasn't seen the show yet.
I have a few more episodes to go so I'm trying hard to keep my speculations in check, like when Trish pickpockets the bottle of Reds and she has that flash of consideration about what it might do for her own heroic aspirations.
I know I could be wrong. That's part of the fun, right? It's fun to think Will's character could be a catalyst for the Hell's Kitchen heroes coming together. Time will tell and perhaps it already has. I'll hopefull find out in the next few episodes.

Ah, election time.
The season where we flex our ancient talent for creating gods and monsters. Build them up with wants and wishes. Tear them down when their need is done. Or simply dispel them when some clever mage on the “other side” crafts a spell exposing the mere human hiding underneath. Not to worry. Plenty more where that came from. Donate now! The Vatican thinks it knows a thing or two about sinners and saints? Amateurs. If it’s for a good cause then normal rules don’t apply. Heck, even abnormal rules don’t apply. It’s “us” versus “them”, remember? This is WAR so don’t be so damn judgmental. Besides, plenty more where that came from. Not to worry. Donate now! Remember what you are fighting for. Make it your life until we tell you about the new thing we need to make the most important thing which is WAY more important than the last three things that we told you were the important thing to think about. I know it is confusing. It’s supposed to be. We’re smarter than the “other side”. That’s why we’re here! We’ll let you know what to remember and what to forget. Let us do the heavy lifting. You have so much on your plate and here’s a list to constantly remind you. The best minds, our minds, are working on solutions right now, but you have to donate! Without your help we can't take control and fix everything. Yes, get in control and fix you. I know what that sounds like, but words don’t always mean what they sound like. You know that, right? You’re smart enough to know that, right? I know it is confusing. Not to worry. Plenty more ideas where those came from. Donate now!
