  • Not Everything in the MCU is For You

    Not Everything in the MCU is For You

    When the Marvel Cinematic Universe first kicked off with 2008’s Iron Man, there was nothing like it. A brand new universe filled with updated versions of our favorite comic book characters, played by some of Hollywood’s hottest (or soon-to-be hottest) actors. It’s easy to forget how different it was back at the beginning than it […]

  • Movie Review – First Man

    Movie Review – First Man

    I went to an early screening of First Man, and while I enjoyed it, I wasn’t blown away.  It should be noted, this is a biopic about Neil Armstrong, so the technical details about the space program are in the background.  What you have is a deep dive on Neil as a civilian pilot and […]

  • Comic Book Review – Airwolf: Airstrikes

    Comic Book Review – Airwolf: Airstrikes

    Yet another IDW/Lion Forge comic that exists in a strange netherworld between reboot and continuation (much like the previously reviewed Knight Rider), this Airwolf: Airstrikes trade paperback is an anthology of mostly-unrelated stories starring a helicopter that sort of resembles the Airwolf you remember, starring people that at least have the same names as the […]

  • Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E04 Devils You Know

    Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E04 Devils You Know

    The action-packed fourth episode of Agents of SHIELD starts with…domestic bliss?  A happy Inhuman couple making dinner gets a knock at the door and it’s Alisha, the Inhuman who can make duplicates of herself.  She’s there to recruit them to Coulson’s team.  A big change from when she was on the side of Jiaying.  Unfortunately […]

  • Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E03 A Wanted (Inhu)man

    Agents of SHIELD Recap – S03E03 A Wanted (Inhu)man

    Agents of SHIELD continues to spin multiple plates each episode, but all of the storylines are still interesting.  This time around, the ATCU outs Lincoln as an alien threat on TV, and Daisy and Mack try to go to the rescue.  Lincoln reaches out to his AA sponsor for help, and it seems to go […]

  • Lightning Book Review – Itty Bitty Hellboy

    Lightning Book Review – Itty Bitty Hellboy

    It might seem like an odd combination, Hellboy getting the cutesy ‘Itty Bitty’ treatment, but if you enjoy HB and want to get your younger ones in early, this is a good way. The bright, simple shapes are indeed cute, reminding me a bit of the Powerpuff Girls. Art Baltazar and Franco do a solid […]

  • M & M's – Tell Me I'm Not Alone In This

    Holiday colored M &M’s taste different.  Most notably the Easter-themed ones, in the pastel colors.  People keep telling me that I’m full of it, but I can’t be.  The holiday ones that are still the right color (red or some such) seem fine.  Anyone else like that out there?

  • Gameday 2009-2010 – Sabres at Penguins

    The Buffalo Sabres take the quick trip down to Pittsburgh to face Crosby, Malkin and the Penguins, 7pm on Versus. The Pens played yesterday against the Red Wings in a Cup Final rematch, winning in a shootout with some sick goals from the two guys mentioned above. Buffalo has a pair of 2-1 wins in […]

  • Fun With SPAM: Most Important!!!

    As a slightly popular blogger, I get a good amount of spam comments, though most is caught by the filters. The rest vary from ugly linkfests to sneaky-sly advertising. Here’s a recent favorite (note, may be some swearing): name: step ladders Hello, Mr. Ladders! The lowercase name is edgy. And ‘step’, your parents were unique. […]

  • Eggertsville Hose Fire Safety Day

    We went (as we seem to every year) to the open house at the Eggertsville Hose Company. Thomas loves it there anyway, and where else can you see a house on fire, a helicopter land and a car cut into pieces all at once? requiem for a dream movie wikipedia He just won’t give up […]

  • Five Things

    With apologies/thanks to Kate at the Willful Caboose: Shut up, Favre. NOW I have an obsessive desire to click spam links before I delete them, even though I know that would just feed into the spammer’s ego. Being a real user of Facebook/Twitter instead of an idle one really helps make the connections. Good job, […]

  • Remeber That?

    That’s how you feel when you watch a winning team. The UB Bulls defeated the 12th ranked Ball State Cardinals 42-24 last night at Detroit’s Ford Field. I didn’t start watching until I read some of the stuff at the WNYMedia LiveBlog, which was about the end of the first half. It was great fun, […]
