Last time, petty crook Parker Robbins kicked the crap out of a Hydra recruiter, shot a demony-looking character in the midst of a break-in, and discovered the boots he stole from its corpse allowed him the power of flight.

Huh. So that happened.

Apparently I missed a 'wind event' (it was a small tornado), touching down briefly (video has a nsfw warning for a rather excited gent fluent in NJ's favorite words) at the Home Depot store just 2 miles down the road from us.

W said he woke up to the emergency alert on his cell, but supposedly my response was to mumble something about 'having already done talked to the North Wind last night, *hand-wave-gesture* and it's fine,' upon which I went back to sleep. When I woke up properly it was in fact, fine, I had no idea the storm was that severe, or that it had done anything else other than rain a bit. It had been a clear starry night when I went to bed, and when I woke up, the rain was stopping and nothing in the yard was disturbed.

The passing low-pressure thingy probably contributed a lot to me being a miserable non-verbal cuss this morning though. I never considered it because I'd completely missed the thing.

So I didn't even get to interview for the local title processing position I really wanted; someone else came over from another title company and filled the position. At least she sounded genuinely unhappy to break the news to me. I've met some very nice people while scouting for new/different work? I can appreciate that.

I may have been too formal when I answered the phone just now--the party on the other end (undoubtedly either a telemarketer or a research group from the background noises) apologized for calling a business instead of a private residence and hung up. ...I'm okay with this.

***

I may have accidentally a flat of brandywine tomatoes and a flat of basil from the local growers market. I do not have a garden bed ready to put them in. I should do something about that.

Whatever Disney princess keeps flitting through our yard with all the animals in her wake needs to stop that shit at once. Also, our local wildlife is super sassy.

The chipmunk follows us around the yard all roaring and tiny and fierce, like "Keep walking! That's right! This is MY yard!"

There's a rabbit that enjoys body-slamming the robins in the front yard for sport. He knocks the unsuspecting birds head-over-heels and then does that happy little rabbit headshake and jump-kick.

The deer just sorta run through. We see them leaping past the windows, and then there's raccoons and possums, and skunks that shuffle by each night. There's a fox, though that was a bit further down the road, and coyotes, though we haven't spotted any yet.

Baby vulture can be seen now, perched at the entrance to the hayloft, peering down at everyone and everything. Its feathers are a bit more than halfway in. It is the scruffiest.

the groundhogs, tho. a rant. )

My lil' sister is one-upping us pretty hard; she apparently has cougar cubs rolling around in her backyard, and she's not even that far into the wilds of PA. I wonder if I can borrow them to kill all the groundhogs when they get big? Granted, if they're in eastern PA, I'm willing to bet NJ has its own cougars by now. I'm just glad we don't have to deal with bears. So far, anyway.

He'd gone to the arena with his slave Bran.

He'd found a lead in his investigations, a gladiator's memento.

He watched the gladiator in question, Achillia, win another of her matches.

He went down to confront her. )

It’s explicitly a book about fading Empire. M16’s roots are in World War 2, and the core of the plot reaches back to there. What is Britain’s place in the world now? What does being British even mean? In a real way, it is a post-Brexit Bond. -- Kieron Gillen

Just finished watching Logan. I knew what it would be going in, but fuck that. I'm fuckin' gutted. Absolutely wrecked. I'm also out of beer.

(Watched Moana first. It was awesome, but we really should've done this in reverse order.)

Since Foolkiller ended with the implication Frank Castle was about to shoot The Hood, and the general consensus was "good riddance", I thought I'd take us all back to a time before Parker Robbins was a lame magic Kingpin wannabe, with the MAX series that first introduced him, written by a pre-Runaways and Y: The Last Man Brian K. Vaughn and drawn by Kyle Hotz.

"We wondered if he thought a planet full of women could ultimately rebuild society and sustain itself once again. Vaughan was surprisingly optimistic on that front. "Yes, I do think it could. There were a lot of people early on in the first year who complained, "Wow, this is such a misogynistic book to say that, because the men died, the women can't get the electricity running all over the world and the airports up and running again." I think that's an extremely complex, extremely difficult thing to deal with. When three billion people die, I don't care what their sex was, that's an incredibly difficult thing to come back from. I will say that the world would be better off than if it were just the men left. I think that would be an even more dire situation. I think there is hope for the planet."

"I'd read the two BROTHER POWER THE GEEK comics as a small boy, and thought they were seriously weird. Rereading them as an adult they were still seriously weird, and funny, and touched with a sad, strange nostalgia. I'd been reading some Ken Kesey, and somehow the idea of Brother Power as a final remnant of flower power began to possess me. 'At least you didn't bring back Prez,' said my friends, relieved. Little did they know."
--Neil Gaiman, Midnight Days

Mild gore on one page.

So each June I sometimes try to post a Bradbury comic or two in his memory. EC did numerous Bradbury adaptations and 'The Lake' is probably the strongest.
