1969 Daniil….

These are panels from Marvel’s Our Love Story #5 “My Heart Broke in Hollywood!” (1969) illustrated by Jim Steranko… But I can’t look at them without seeing Daniil Dankovsky every time. Just sub in Thanatica in place of the movie business 😉

No matter who the person being referenced in the song “You’re so vain” is, the song isn’t about them; the song is about the singer and their feelings. Hence the accusation “You’re so vain, I bet you think this song is about you” is an accusation that the person being referenced is still self-centeredly thinking that things are ‘about them’, rather than centering the feelings and needs of the singer. #music posting#random thoughts#everyone else probably…

“You look good,” Sabretooth said, and his eyes shone like soulless black marbles, reflecting all available light because there was no light inside. None at all. He was flirting with her. Wolverine couldn’t speak for a moment. X-Men: Codename Wolverine (1998) Christopher Golden

6/4-6/6 2021. Media weekend

Got the second (moderna) shot on Friday and felt like trash pretty much the whole weekend.  Thursday: The recent Windows update basically fried out my laptop’s network card driver. Nothing I did would re-initiate it, not rolling it back, reinstalling it, etc.  Friday (day): Shot. Illyana and Kitty had a fun shopping day, bought some clothes at Wal-mart, stopped at the comic store and Gamestop (Bought: Resident Evil 8, Nier: Replicant, and SMT Nocturne.)for us,…

Retired  Sburb: New Game Plus v1-v3: Jack, Kevin, Hannah and Holly play some games. Persona Plus: What if New Game Plus was a Persona Game instead?

Wild Child

Man I really fuckin hate Kyle (Wild Child). I’ve  hated him for years and seeing the way he was acting at the Hellfire Gala in this week’s Hellions legitimately made me wanna hurl. Kyle, get it through your disgusting little head. She’s not into you, she was never into you. You’re a gross little turd and its not because of yer damn face. Its cause you’re one of them fucking “nice guy” incels. The pack…

To blazes with their project

The flashback gripped Victor’s psyche, ripping him back to a moment years ago, and a conversation just as fruitless then as it would be now. For a moment he was sure that these last years had been just another mind game of the men in labcoats. The men who sent them to kill, wiped them clean, and sent them again. He grabbed his partner’s shoulder like a rock. Like a lifeline. Logan. “We can do…

Basement arc #Final

I don’t know how to express my full thoughts on the basement arc beyond sheer anger and pain and frustration and sadness. Nowadays online, we sometimes see the slogan “if you can’t make your own neurotransmitters, store bought is fine.” The basement arc really shows how much that kind of stupid positivity really has to stand up against. The stigma against mental illness, and the stigma against treatment for mental illness beyond mere talk therapy,…

Basement Arc #4

It’s time to talk about how the basement arc ends. The answer isn’t pretty. It ends in attempted suicide. Again. Honestly how else can it end? So far Sabretooth has: sought help for his psychological breakdown and trauma been denied treatment/medication told he’s weak for needing treatment beyond talk therapy locked in the basement, forced into restraints treated like a sub-human Attacked and lobotomized treated like an actual animal on a leash been deliberately re-traumatized…

Basement Arc #3

This run of comics are so fucking exhausting to read. Also the shit that happens is so twisted and absurd that I had to add more panel caps to this one because I just straight up feel like people would say I was lying about what happened otherwise. So Wolverine lobotomizes Sabretooth, possibly unintentionally, when Sabretooth goads him into attempting to kill him. What happens after that? Sabretooth is rendered non-verbal, with the apparent intellect…

Wolverine: Weapon X by Marc Cerasini review

Wolverine: Weapon XAuthor: Marc CerasiniPublished: 2004 If I had thought about the fact that Wolverine: Weapon X was almost certainly going to be one long, slow, unpleasant session of mental torture and brainfuckery I probably would have stuck it at the bottom of the pile and started with one of the other Wolverine novels. But I didn’t think about it; and it was the first novel in the omnibus. And the omnibus arrived in my…

Basement Arc #2

So the basement arc. When last we left our pal Sabretooth, he was ‘addicted’ to psychic mind touches in order to dull the pain of his extensive trauma and abuse, so that he could stop going around randomly murdering people (and presumably continue murdering people for fun and profit). In response to this, the X-men locked him in the basement. And when I say locked him in the basement, I mean literally locked him in…

Come Running

Come running to me, boy. Come running when the legs of your trousers crawl up your calves. When your voice begins to sink into your chest. When those first soft hairs sprout above your lip. Come running when his knife comes out. When it flashes in the dark. When he smiles at you and no longer sees you. Come running when Pan thins his flock. My ship waits in the harbor for boys that are…

Anime I’m Watching

Currently I’m watching a few anime series. Nothing ongoing at the moment, but stuff I never got to see when it aired. I’m paying for the Funimation app, I might as well get some use out of it. Pumpkin Scissors: This anime has a weird tone, and I wasn’t initially convinced that I would like it. It’s sort of a military-drama-comedy, about a unit engaged in reconstruction after the end of a war. The goofy…
