I watch a pretty good amount of standup everywhere I can catch it and Mulaney is the absolute paragon to point at when people say you can’t be funny in the current era where people are too politically correct or too easily offended. He’s weird, self-deprecating, but more than anything else, always funny.
I’m much more partial to Tom Petty, and tuxedo cats in general. It’s one thing to be as much of a self-centered asshole as every cat is, but when you have the opportunity to do it while wearing a tuxedo all day long, well. That’s something different entirely.
Every successful artist I follow has had their work stolen at least once. Some have quit posting their art altogether because of it. This is brilliant.
Even that’s got going to happen by this Christmas. Pull the old Kenner placeholder trick. If it worked in 1977 it will work now. Plus it’s cannon!
Shut up and take my credits!
That or with half a large frog hanging out of his mouth.
Soup my man. It’s soup.
A lot of the characters they release will never be made into a figure or model otherwise. I went out of my way to get Lying Cat from Saga when Funko released it because at the time there was no other licensed merch for it.
People started buying Beanies because they thought they would be worth more someday, not cuz they liked them or what they represent. Other than a few here and there, the majority of Pops are worthless beyond the value one gets from enjoying them. Beanies never had that emotional connection.
I’m sure the company worth 710 million dollars will review your critique the art style of their products.
Parasite may have been an unmitigated masterpiece deserving of every accolade it gets, but Knives Out is my movie of the year. Not only does it amass a gobsmacking lineup of A-list actors, but it plays most of them against type, and tells one hell of a story to boot. The only downside for myself is that a certain… Read more
Knives Out is the funniest movies I’ve seen in a while — and for once they didn’t give away all the best moments in the trailer. Also, who knew Daniel Craig could do deadpan humor so well?
I discovered a pocket of Alfred Hitchcock movies that I’ve never seen, so that should fill my movie nights until the new year. I’ve always found his movies dependably entertaining, and since I’m too weary to make an effort lately, I’ll settle for being dependably entertained. I started this week with Torn Curtain and… Read more
I love the new companions and think the 4 person TARDIS crew works surprisingly well & is an interesting callback to the early days on the show when it was the norm, like with the first doctor-Ian-Barbara-Susan, and second doctor Ben-Polly-Jamie, and then later the fifth doctor with Nyssa-Tegan-Adric (and then briefly… Read more
I love the new She-Ra. I’m old enough to have lived though the original (and wasn’t allowed to watch it-definite fundy Christian upbringing). I’m a sucker for shows that are about friendship (with a little shipping here and there). This just does it for me.
