I’m not dead. Just saying. Though I hate format crossing, here’s the twitter update of what I’ve been up to since I last posted:

Since last post, got Master’s, started job hunt, ran 2nd Boston Marathon with Caitie, it ruled, will run Disney and Boston next year I think, Started 2nd blog (see link)

The second blog is also through wordpress, and it’s called “IMovedInWithMyGirlfriend” Check it out sometime to see what I’m up to. If you couldn’t tell, I moved in with my girlfriend.

I also have about 600 weekly recs to catch up on. Some of them include:

The Boston Marathon. Yeah I ran it

Ryan Keough – hilarious comedian out of Connecticut. Our dads went to high school together. We went to high school together. We’re considering adopting a son so he can go to high school together.

The Red Sox – They are playing again.

A-Rod – Throw rocks at him, he sucks.

Roger Clemens – See “A-Rod” above.

The Seals at the Aquarium – Amelia turns 24 today I think.

Trader Joe’s – I work there now. Stop by and visit. Buy stuff from there. They treat their employees and customers with dignity. And integrity. That’s their #1 Core Value, actually.

Steven Wilson’s Insurgentes album. It’s fantastic. His first “true” solo release, it basically ruled hardcore.But it’s not hardcore. It’s ambient/obscure pop/rock/nothingness/everything.

Kings of Leon’s Only By the Night – Late on the wagon on this one, but better late than never. Another album title in five syllables, this one is their most mature by far. It rules. Sit down and actually listen to the album as a whole, because when music was invented, it was meant to be listened to as a whole. Beautiful work.

Star Trek – Movie was awesome. Not even a trekkie.

The Ruins (the book) – Not sure why this is on here, really. I read it. All of it. From the beginning to the end. Maybe that’s why it’s on here? Still not sure.

…Those are just a few…

There are more, but I’ll try to come back to this soon. Hooray.

The subtitle of this website is enough to make me happy. That’s like 1/6 of his RBI total all of last year. Spring training is the place for him to start getting hits. Can’t wait for baseball season. Can’t wait.

Hey guys. So I know Clinton mentioned about Sam Jackson playing Nick Fury in NINE, count them NINE, movies for Marvel, but I thought I’d drop a couple of other bits of stuff.

1. Iron Man 2: For those who may not have heard, booze has been confirmed to be the primary antagonist of Tony Stark for the upcoming movie. If you didn’t see this coming, then you should probably just go away. However, apparently the girl who was supposed to play the Black Widow has been dropped. While no official reeason has been given, it is rumored to be due to an inability to make Communism sexy.

2. Thor: Will be casting soon! Maybe. Tell your 6’6″ Norweigan friends.

3. Wolverine: Three new videos have been airing both on TV, and now online. They each provide new footage, including the first to show Deadpool talking. Personally I’m a big fan of the fact that they’re pretty much going with the initial backstory from Wolverine: Origin, you know the whole rich sickly kid who’s dad gets killed part, minus the whole Canadian Jean Grey thing. Also apparently Sabretooth and Wolverine are the real reason the Union won the Civil War. One thing that concerns me though is that Gambit, instead of throwing his cards, seems to be making them float and telekinetically projecting them or something. Maybe. I’m not sure, but it looked weird. Check out all three clips at comicbookmovie.com.

4. Suicide Squad: Is rumored to be getting a movie. Really Warner Brothers? You can’t hold it together for Wonder Woman or the Flash, you can’t deliver a truly epic Superman movie, you haven’t touched other prominient property, like Green Arrow or Aquaman, but you’re willing to give Deadshot and Co. their own film?

Other: On the subject of Dark Reign, it seems pretty cool from what I’ve read, but I’ve been thinking recently. See, I understand that it is “Dark” because Internation Man of Jackassery Norman Osborn is running the show, along with the Dark Illuminati and H.A.M.M.E.R. (the fact that he came up with acronym before coming up with what it stands for is awesome by the way), but I guess I’d like to see him doing some good things. I’m not saying I want him to be a good guy. Far from it. I’m just saying that he wouldn’t just be put into a high ranking government position and then use it to work his evil. I want to see some of him using his power to not only solidfy his control over the world, but also to try and clean it up, albeit with harsh crackdown methods. I think it would make for more interesting storytelling, and allow for them to get as much as possible out of the story. I have faith in Brian Michael Bendis. Maybe Norman can start by putting an end to all of this Red Hulk (Rulk?) foolishness.

Also, can I just say how awesome it is that baseball is starting again? Granted its Spring Training, but still. Baseball is back. Woo-Hoo!

Check back in tomorrow when I might have a review of Street Fighter: Legend of Chun Li if you’re good.

Hubba Hubba. Hello Nurse? No way. Hello M.D. who's been on call as the Resident in NBC's ER for the last fifteen years. Yeah. That's more like it. I feel like a stack of flapjacks with a big pad of butter melting all over them. Yeah, like that.

I still don’t feel bad for you, Alex Rodriguez…

 

…fat chance “the American people” will judge your career based on this season and whatever happens afterwards…

 

 

Also, let’s do a math problem.

 

2008/9-1975 (year you were born) = 33 years old

“I was stupid and naive [ blah blah blah, tommyrot, claptrap, etc.] when I was young and 21 years old or so”

33-21=12; 2008-12= 1996

2008-(2001/2003)= 5-7 years ago/ 26-28 years old.

I think what I’m trying to say is, “you suck at math, and at life” (can I get an “and goaltending”? in there somewhere, please?)

 

Still hate you! 🙂

Unfortunately not a post-apocalyptic zombie flick directed by Danny Boyle starring Julio Lugo and Mark Kotsay, pitchers and catchers report to Fort Myers in less than ten days. I’m excited. It feels like forever since baseball happened. I can has?! I can has!? I can HAS!? I CAN HAS!?!?!?
