Stan Lee-Need I Say More?


Morning, Fam…

So, I gave myself a day to digest the fact that Stan Lee’s died.  Comics as we know them is no more.  That sounds dramatic, I know, but think about it.
 
from ReleaseSoon.com
The man was 95, he started started in the comic business as a grunt at 17 filling inkwells among other stuff according to Ain’t It Cool News, and two years later, Lee was doing comics.  With DC Comics leading the pack in the 50s, the owner of Timely, Atlas and Marvel Comics tasked Lee with coming up with a rival superhero team…Fantastic Four was born.  Not to sound cliché, but the rest is history.

Of course, the man was so much more than his comics.  Again, according to Ain’t It Cool News, he was a vet, having served in the army in WWII as well as being a husband, father, and grandfather.  He was a role model to millions to know what could be.

According to MovieWeb, he’d finished shooting his cameo for Avengers 4, a treat fans looked forward to ever since the MCU’d been brought to film, so we’ll get to see him one last time come May.

Our condolences to Mr. Lee’s family, friends, and fans.

Be good to each other.

Pulling Together in Strife.


Morning, Fam…

So, first off, I want to express our gratitude to the firemen and such risking their lives in Cali battling the wildfires.  I’d also like to send out condolences to those that’ve lost someone from the fires.

That being said, nature’s a beautiful bitch and when things like this happen, she doesn’t discriminate.  Money doesn’t buy safety as shown by the many celebs that’ve lost their pads in the fires’ paths.

It’s easy to personalize when something bad happens, but that’s when we really need to come together.  We’re all here on this berg together.

Be good to each other.

Deaf in the Zombie Apocalypse.


So, The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead’s been getting shit on on the net by people that’ve lost sight of the real message of the show, calling it repetitive and weak.

Yeah, there are walkers and by definition there should be gore to go with said walkers, and yes, some of the themes and plotpoints’ve shown up a time or two or three, but showing the good and bad of humanity whether what’s seen coming can be seen for a mile isn’t something the shows’ve skimped on…inclusion being part of that humanity.

Last season of Fear, we were introduced to Wendall, played by real-life crip, Daryl Mitchell.  Until he showed up, Joey and I wondered about the possibility of a crip in the zombie apocalypse.  We wondered about his allegiances at first, but by the end of the season, we think he’s a straight arrow.  Of course, we’ll have to see how next season shakes out.  Still, it was badass to see a crip in a chair.

Tonight’s episode of TWD introduced us to Connie, a vagabond Judith, now 11 in the show, takes in with Connie’s friends.  The thing is Connie’s deaf.

Lauren Ridloff, who’s been making a splash on Broadway in Children of a Lesser God, plays Connie.  Mrs. Ridloff’s deaf.  So far, her character’s the moral compass of her group, so I hope she has more than a couple episodes’ arch.  I, for one’ll be interested to see where they take her.


Bravo to TWD for pushing for inclusion in their cast and character arches.

Be good to each other.

Life After Rehab?


Afternoon, Fam…

So, Guys, help me understand some stuff, because I honestly don’t know.

Demi Lovato finished her 90-day stint in rehab to go to a halfway house…sort of.  According to TMZ, a few days she stays at the halfway house while staying at an undisclosed residence the rest of the week…although, I sure with a little digging, the paps could find that out too.  Hmmm, I thought they had to do a stint in a halfway house after discharge from rehab.  At any rate, she reportedly has a sober counsellor with her 24/7, so that makes everything all right.  Hmmm.

She’s also been seen around with another recovering addict friend, who, according to TMZ again, she’s very chummy with going on dates and whatnot.

I’m not judging, but I’d always heard it wasn’t a good idea for addicts to date, because they feed off each other.

Now, if they feed off each other to stay sober and go to meetings and whatnot, good, but what if one falls off the wagon?  The other has to try to pull the other back on the wagon while maintaining his, in this case, sobriety.  If his will’s not strong, both fall off the wagon.  If he can’t get the other back on the wagon, he has to make that decision to kick the other to the curb for his own sobriety’s sake…a hard ass decision when it comes to friends and/or lovers.

At any rate, I’m still pulling for her.

What you guys think?

Be good to each other.
