Doctor Doom are the only comic villains that I find interesting. Maybe Victor Freeze after Paul Dini and Bruce Timm revamped him. Have I mentioned that Timm and Dini should have been running this shitshow from the start?

I hear Mark Millar Netflix are going to start publishing show pitches comic books soon, so something there might grab your attention. I believe their first endeavour is a prohibition era gangster story but with wizards and shit.

In this world where a quick google will find you in the company of like minded perverts/racists/dullards/zealots.... 


Absolutely right. That's how I ended up here.

The Eternal September is what my father calls it.

Clickbait, listicles and Fake News all preying on narcissism. The web is an ugly place and should be used sparingly. I work in a bar frequented by functioning alcoholics and the majority of them are positively charming compared to the youtube commentariat. Better informed too. I think that's my point here. If you get out there and talk to real people, even the biggest degenerate is better than most 'net persona.

And they are persona. Comes from the latin for 'mask'. The internet isn't real life. This isn't really a conversation. Not a real discussion. Your internal monologue could be reading this in the snarkiest, most condescending voice your mind can conjure, or maybe the angriest, most bellicose vomit of bile. I'm nowhere near good enough a writer to convey my ideas with an appropriate tone, nor is yer average web denizen. The subtle tonal changes and cadence of voice are lost online, along with body language cues. You don't get to see the other person nodding along to your point, indicating comprehension, before disagreeing. You just see the disagreement.

I concede I may just be stuck in the echo chamber of real life.

This show challenges me in ways TNG never did. It raises big questions. I don't doubt Beyonce's talent, but is her talent so enduring that we will still referernce her in the far future?

I quite like Mister Walsh. Watching him on ITV's "The Chase", he does that thing Big Brucie Forsyth did. He doesn't try to be likeable, he just seems to like you. It's very endearing.

3 conspiracy theorists walk into a bar.

Don't try to tell me that's just a coincidence

Gaaah...

I've got the "Scary Mary skins a canary every Saturday night" tune running around in my head, leaving ruts and knocking things over. In the name of God, please, make it stop!

You think that's bad? I've got Jilted John stuck in me head. Keep getting funny looks when I shout "GORDON IS A MORON!"

You know when it snows and it makes your street look completely different? Well this morning was like that, but with school kids instead of snow
