Random Thoughts #39 - Wisdom Teeth... Who Needs Them?

Well, I’m in tonight.  I cracked one of my wisdom teeth a couple of weeks ago, so they came out today. Kids, don’t put something like this off for a year. There was no way I could go to work post-procedure. It actually has gone on well so far. There’s just some bleeding and pain. Other than that, it’s been an okay week. God’s good, work’s good, and women…well,  I’ll find one.  I think it’s time for some Random Thoughts.

Complaints, Itching, Moaning, Whining… Whatever
Is it just me or is the Internet have a lot of whiners? I mean, I know they’re out there. Heck, I’m one of them sometimes though mine are aren’t fricking annoying. It seems like it’s got worse for some reason. You go to one place and you see someone complaining about the new Star Wars movie. You go to another place and see someone getting irate about some red cup at Starbucks. You find another place that talks about guns, immigrants, and poultry. Then, you go over to another place and see someone complaining about how other people complain about sh…. Oh. Anyway, I’m just tired of it all. I do get that there are really important issues that need to be addressed, but everything under the sun doesn’t need to be whined about. Maybe we all need a break from the Internet or something.

Well, I did it. I decided to finally go all out for Halloween. Usually, I’d just do a ninja get up and throw on some black clothing. This time, I more or less did the World War 2 version of Captain America. In other words, I was going to go save Bucky. I even made my own shield from tape and cardboard. I ended up hanging out with a friend who decided sort of dress up as Storm. Deitra, if you actually read this, I just wanted to say good job. I had a fun time overall. The shield actually kept up throughout the night. I now have something I could use at a convention if I ever go to one.
Ran into a female Joker at the comic shop. A weird but nice team-up.

Star Trek back on TV? Sort of...
Now this was a little interesting to hear. CBS is apparently going to make another Star Trek show. I have to say that it’s about time! Seriously, if there’s one place where Trek can be done well, it’s on TV. While I liked the newer movies, I have to admit that they aren’t the best of Trek by a long shot. Unfortunately, the show (which is supposed to appear in 2017) is supposed to air on CBS’s All Access site. I don’t know how that will work out with me or anyone. All I can hope is that it’s well-casted and good. A friend of mine actually has who she would want to be on there and it’s not a bad list.

Batman Homage Month
Now this is something I’ve though long and hard about. At the end of September, I thought about doing a month where I’d look at heroes that are analogues to Batman. I’m running into a little problem with that. It’s pretty easy to see who was an analogue to Superman. With Batman, it’s kind of hard to see who fits his modus operandi. I know there are characters out there, so this will be a challenge to do. So, look out for something in December.

Well, that’s all I have today. I recently heard about the attack in Paris, so keep them in your thoughts and prayers. They’ll be in mine. Peace, God Bless, and please be careful out there.

  1. Thanks for the shout-out for my cast list, Ryell! I'm hoping that regardless of who's on the show, hopefully it'll be a good one. I agree that Trek is strongest on TV.
