I’m hard at work getting a new article done for GUY.com this week, so I’m going to do what I do best – spout out a couple of random thoughts for you all to ignore.
1. Though I don’t dress like his character any more – nor do I follow the man after the mess he is slowly becoming – I still find myself addicted to the show he used to watch at the QuickStop with Mewes back in the day: Degrassi. It’s overly-dramatic all too often, but I can’t stop watching. Ever since Kevin appeared on a multi-part story arc, I’ve been hooked. I’m so ashamed. Ooh, it’s on!
2. Deadpool moonwalks when you move him away from his opponent in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. And this amuses me to no end.
3. I honestly thought that once I cancelled my pull box of comics at the comic shop that I would have more time to read all the books I have been putting off. Boy, was I wrong.
4. I don’t care how played out Star Wars is or how much Lucas has pissed away what used to be a great franchise – if Empire shows up on TV, I will watch it. My favourite Star Wars film of all time. My favourite film of all time. No amount of Special-Editioning nonsense or diluting of the universe through lackluster prequels will ever ruin that flick for me.
5. I think I’m just about Sheened out for awhile.
6. Now that I’m writing retro board game reviews for GUY.com, I’m finding friends and co-workers coming out of the woodwork with some pretty vintage stuff. It’s kind of amazing. I should have more than plenty of material to last me the next few months for articles.
7. I’m writing for GUY.com!!! How cool is that?
8. Sometimes you have to take the back seat, sacrifice more than you get, and not expect anything in return for the sake of something you love so much. In the end, all you can do is hope it’s worth it in the end, that eventually you’ll be rewarded for your efforts, and that nothing you do for the sake of that love will be in vain.
9. It’s weird. The casting of old “V” vets Marc Singer and Jane Badler in the new “V” series hasn’t really moved me beyond the initial excitement of just seeing them back on TV in a new “V” series. In fact, the show itself has yet to really wow me like the original did. And yet I continue to watch.
10. It’s almost like I don’t even have to try to lose weight anymore. I know what I have to do, and as long as I stick to it it continues to happen. Losing weight isn’t an effort anymore, it’s just a fact.
