The Walking Dead: Season 8 Trailer


"When I first met him, Jesus said my world was gonna get a whole lot bigger. We found that world. We found each other. That bigger world is ours by right. Those who use and take and kill, we end them!"
—Rick Grimes

I haven't posted anything in quite a while because I've been far too busy this year. Hopefully, that will change soon. Until then, I have to take a short break from everything to talk about this trailer for The Walking Dead that just showed at Comic-Con. After the inhuman brutality of last season, TWD looks to continue the new trajectory promised in the Rise Up poster, to fight back the hopelessness and terror.

I'm Mary Poppins, Y'all


I just realized I haven't posted anything since March. I have my day job, of course, and weekends are family time. I also have a fledgling business to attend to and recently my brothers brought me in on an unanticipated venture. So, it's not that I died; it's just that my days have become furious rushes to get things done. Because of that, I've been neglecting to share my thoughts on my favorite things. I hope to change that.

Logan: All These Broken Parts

RUTHLESS, VICIOUS, RELENTLESS.
BEAUTIFUL, WARM, BITTERSWEET.

On the one-week anniversary of my death by (at least) a thousand cuts, I bring you this short story of the cause of my demise. What happened to me? Who is responsible? Why did I let my guard down? Was there anything that could have been done?

Let's start with the what. If your eyes skipped over the title up there, I went to see a little movie you may have heard of called Logan. A little movie that has made $535 million worldwide in the three weeks since its release‪. It's not the highest haul a superhero movie has ever had, but that's nothing to scoff at and it's still a great finish for an emotionally rough goodbye. This is the X-Men movie I was waiting for, the definitive Wolverine movie, one of the best ever superhero movies, and just a damn great movie.‬

Season 4, Episode 1
Watch at Amazon Video

Wow, I just looked back through my posts and discovered that the last time I talked about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was on October 4, and that was just a promo for my little MAOS store. Before that, I had finally finished my thoughts about Absolution and Ascension just a couple hours prior to the season 4 premiere. I've been mum since. I've certainly been vocal over on Twitter, though, and that's why I wanted to gather all my thoughts from there and post them here.

But a whole thing happened where I just had no time at all, with my work, starting a business, the holidays, cleaning the basement nearly every weekend, an enormous post about The Walking Dead's mid-season finale, and then my mom going to the hospital again; she's doing much better now, thank you. But it was just one thing after another and all at once. Now I have 15 of these tweetcaps saved up for MAOS alone and 4 other shows to take care of, too. As of this moment, there are 56 drafts waiting for me to do something, anything, with them and 2 more about Doctor Strange and Logan, which I saw and adored and was messed up emotionally by last night.

The Walking Dead: Ross Marquand Live Q&A


"It's the apocalypse. Don't let it get you down."

While I was working this morning, I just happened to look at my notifications at the exact moment @RossMarquand (Aaron on The Walking Dead) tweeted that he was about to do a Facebook live stream.
