I'm a well read technosexual who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Commercial starts off in a knitting store showing all the yarn.
My sister grins at me.
Sister: I'm all about this commercial!
Commercial: If you have breast cancer...
Me: Well, that was a quick downturn :/
We kinda laughed because we did not expect that. There was no warning. Yarn store, then boom, breast cancer.
But when it steers clear of Cap, it's quite good. That little twist at the end, that despair, shows that Deadpool has some feelings, and in the end, I like when it's not just one joke after another but has some emotional content.
I'm enjoying this, but a weekly, huge event is a little overwhelming given that it goes on for three months.
Earth is a pawn in an interstellar battle. But for serious, you're gonna play human checkers for three months? Ugh, Marvel, kinda lame. So knocking off one star, because I'm not that annoyed - yet.
But still, one of the more enjoyable crossovers. I'm tired. I have work to do, but will weep if I don't finish my old reviews. I need some stress relief, so I'm taking tonight off because I can afford to.
And I bet they'll be back in a couple months. Takes away some of the emotional impact of the deaths, unless they're my absolute favorites, and then I'll cry all day.
So, yeah, they didn't kill off the Vision. You'll know when they do, because you'll hear the sobs.
This is all Quicksilver angst. Didn't Wanda decide he was a sociopath and she'd have nothing to do with him?
It's 100% of Quicksilver being an ass, but I like where this storyline is going.
It's a little confined to the three Avengers teams, and I'm interested in two of them. Not sure I'm a huge fan of the way they're retconning the Avengers history, but I like Voyager, their new character, so I'm willing to put up with it - for now.
And I love it. It's a lot of internal politics, and a lot of distrust. But it makes it dramatic, especially with last month's ending. (Which I won't spoil for Jessica, but you should totally catch up on this.)
It's Transformers. Versus Visionaries. Which apparently is a thing that existed? I don't know. I bought this for Transformers, with a major bonus of Kim and Kim writer. (Yeah, guess what, I liked Kim and Kim enough to keep saying it, because I would recommend that series very, very much.) But pretty much I was going to buy and read a TF comic by IDW (that isn't Bayverse) no matter who wrote it.
And IDW doesn't let me down. It never does. It's a great series, and it adds a lot to the post-Revolution Transformers mythology. Love!
So much yes! Grimlock comes back, and of course, it's not quite how you'd expect, and it certainly doesn't end how you'd expect. It's brutal and far, far worse than anything I'd expect.
The Scavengers agree to find the Magnificence, for a whole lot of money. Instead, they find Scorponok, the Decepticon who used Grimlock, torturing him, experimenting on him, and it's revealed why it was done now.
Scorponok also has some control over Grimlock. And it's this fact that is truly tragic.
I was left astounded by the ending. Well worth reading!
It sounds horrific, the more so the more I learn about this. It's also amazing how I heard about this via Twitter, then looked it up, but I'm finding I'm learning a lot via links on Twitter, or via people broadcasting on Twitter. It's had an impact in how I search for news, or how news is filtered to me.
Also, yeah, my timeline is almost 100% pro-Israel.
"Lot of the hotels on this strip are A.I.” She grinned at me through the smoke. “That’s why no one stays in them. Shame, really. I read somewhere they’re hardwired to want customers the way people want sex. That’s got to be frustrating, right?”

Wants to say something about how I'm hardwired, but can't think straight enough to get that done.
I'm not really paying attention to the audiobook: too tired, too nervous about the internship tomorrow.
Anyway, yeah, gonna finish up a couple things, then go to bed and read for a half hour or so before I sleep, I think.
I wanna. And the thing is I have it accessible via Scribd.
Scribd, who didn't make me add my credit card when I got the code for their free six months, so I don't even have to worry about them just spontaneously charging me. I'm having a lot of fun so far. Got the one thing I wanted to get done via homework today, so I'm reading a little. Or listening, while knitting.
I'm quite enjoying this narrator, Todd McLaren.
Why someone had seen fit to equip the Hendrix’s security systems with twenty-millimeter automatic cannon was beyond me, but they did the job with devastating totality.

Sighs. As much as I love the Hendrix Hotel - and Jimi Hendrix - this is disappointing on some level. I suspect Hendrix will be drastically different from Poe, who ran The Raven in the show, but their use of unnecessarily brutal violent when they take on host prerogatives is a similarity. And I could love them equally, but right now I miss Poe!
Anyway, homework for the rest of the night, but I might slip in some more reading during my lunch at my internship tomorrow!
I face planted on cement so spectacularly this morning that some dude on his phone actually went 'that was scary, give me a second,' and stopped to check on me. Like four groups of people did, and I was like, 'I need to sit for a second, because of the shock, but I'm not even bleeding. I'm okay, nothing's broken, this is just super embarrassing.'
My wrist was too sore to swim much, and I was giggling about it soon after, but yeah, I thought today was going to suck based on that.
