So after an unintended hiatus, “What’s new, you Herculean demonstration of Manliness?” I hear you cry, and multiple remindings off Kib…
So I was going to write about Cap: Civil War. (More correctly would be Avengers: Civil War, in my eyes. It’s a better Avengers movie than AoU)
Turns out my mate beat me to the punch. So here it is:
A few months ago I reviewed a story of a rich billionaire ego maniac fighting an over powered boy scout based on ideological differences. Now lets see it done properly in……………………………

So I’ve been to see Orphan Fight: 2016. Let me begin by saying how much of a DC fanboi I am not, but I know my way around the stuff that matters. The more I have seen advertised about the DCCU, the more I become less and less excited about it. The Dark Knight Trilogy (TDKT) has a lot to answer for; like the entire setting of the DCCU. Seriously at no point should Superman be dark, gritty, or in an R-rated movie. Where Cap is a walking flag, Supes is a FLYING flag.
I honestly think that TDKT has ruined DC movies as much as IMHO Bourne killed Bond. Let me also state that I wanted this movie to be bad, almost as much as I wanted to see Manbat and Space Jesus on screen together.
…My blogging, that is.
I’m sat here at a new desk (new job – which is new) and I’ve not blogged in over two months!
Since I last posted –
Shit loads (In no particular order):
Easter weekend garden extraordinaire,
Demi had to be put to sleep 😦
Quatro finally closed
New job at an LED sign place
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Plus stuff I’ve forgotten.
I will blog – but remind me.
Well it has been too long, as is the usual state of things, and I haven’t blogged.
The problem, dear reader, is that I have nothing – NOTHING – to tell you about.
Becks, Stuart and I cleared the garden a bit more, and burnt off all but the last of the shed.
Did I mention we’re making way for a GARAGE?!?! Nothing fancy, just 12’x8′ – enough to house a workbench and 6’x4′ gaming table. Me so happy. I can put beers on. I can has gaming table. I can mod some of my nerf guns. I can has electronics funs. I can has space to get things sorted…etc etc
Rebecca’s Birthingday was on the 12th, and we went out for a nice meal at Del Caleminos (undoubtedly spelt wrong), and also went to go see XMen: DOFP. Which was surprisingly NOT BAD, and even more surprisingly ACTUALLY QUITE GOOD. But then again, anything with Jennifer Laurance running around dressed in nothing but latex will automatically get a few stars in my book.
Ok not anything.
I’ve started reading The Tales of The Ketty Jay series of books. The first one was a gift given to me by Kib, and in a break from tradition, I managed to get to read/play it within 24 months of receiving it*. I loved it so much that I immediately ordered the rest of the series after finishing the first.
These book is like nothing you’ve ever seen before so I doubt you’ll ever like it…lies
I had my first game of Malifaux. Which was a fun game, but the rules were a bit of mind bender. Just give me my dice back! Having said that, I really liked the card mechanic.
Car needs a new exhaust, tyres and brake pads.
And Rebecca has started her own collection of little model men. And she finally watched Firefly and Serenity.
Oh, we’re also going to Manchester Comic Con.
I think I’m beginning to rub off on her…
So it turns out that I did have a blog in me! Well let’s all hope that it won’t be as long till the next one!
* if indeed at all.
It seems that the ghost of poor old Ian Fleming is not happy with the current choice of Bond.
See? He’s taking it into his own ethereal hands to try and stop Bond from being blonde.
Ian himself is not happy. Should we not listen to him? Please get rid of this perverted nazi-esque portrayal of JB. Blonde hair + blue eyes = master race. JB was meant to be the opposite. Brown hair + gray eyes = JB.
