Every day, I wake up and I want to...
[draw many things, improve my older drawings, work out, lift weights, make YouTube videos, walk the dogs, cook a healthy meal, start learning Blender, watch a movie, watch some shows, draw more, look for jobs, rework my portfolio, write about politics, walk the dogs again, look for a date, draw more...]
...and then I feel paralyzed, because there's not enough time to do all of that. I can only ever do about 3% of what I want to do.
If I start drawing, I feel like I should be working on a video.
If I watch a movie, I feel like I should be drawing.
I delay walking my dogs, because I want to do so
I know that every time I make a prediction about Star Wars it turns out to be dead wrong... but... I WANT TO MAKE ANOTHER ONE.
By now, I assume you've seen the new trailer for The Rise of Skywalker that ends with the image of Rey wearing dark robes and wielding a double-sided red lightsaber. She's evil Rey, Darth Rey, whatever...
...some people immediately thought this means that she's going to turn to the Dark Side, or that it's a piece of misdirection, and it will be nothing more than a vision or whatnot, like, Rey has to fight her inner darkness in a hallucination?
I would like to propose another possibility!
I think the Dark Rey
The "F-word" is, of course, "Fat Thor." Everyone likes Fat Thor, right?
It's funny -- when Endgame came out, I saw a spoiler online that went something like "oh god, they made one of the Avengers get FAT, and he's treated like a joke, and it's disgusting and fatphobic!"
I assumed it was going to be Banner, so I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be Thor. And then when everyone saw the movie, it turns out that a lot of people liked what they did with him. He's kind of a joke, yes, but his pain is real.
I think... that a lot of people of my generation relate to Fat Thor. All of us who grew up in the '90

Okay, oof, the time is here. I might be a bit scarce for the next few days. I have to start moving everything i own and a bunch of other furniture so that some workers can show up here Monday and do things to this pl ...
So hey! I hope you liked the recent Reflekta pages, and there will be a few more. One more tranche of Reflekta, to wrap things up. It'll be a few weeks, though.
I understand why people don't want to support me on Patreon, but... ...
It sold a lot. Of course, all DVD sales are slowing down as people move to streaming. I didn't buy Endgame, because i knew it was going to be available to stream on Disney Plus from day one. A year ago, i would have bought Endgame immediately. I almost thought about not buying Captain Marvel on blu-ray, but then decided, nah, i can't wait until November. It might end up being the last blu-ray i ever buy, really. Everything is streaming now.
The bottom line is this -- when Captain Marvel was #1 on the sales charts, it was selling more than the next 44 titles combined. It made a billion dollars at the box office. It has one of the best ROIs of any superhero movie, ever. If there are any drooling morons on YouTube trying to convince people that Captain Marvel somehow failed because it's not literally the most popular movie of all time, you'd have to be an even bigger moron to listen to them.
Captain Marvel is going to be streamed on Disney Plus about a billion times.
But yeah, it's fun to laugh at these fools. They bet their credibility on the movie tanking, and it exceeded expectations. Instead of slinking away in defeat, they're grasping at every imaginable straw they can find.
Heh heh... I almost wish that Captain Marvel II flops, just so these sad losers can have some kind of win in their lives. When they're old and looking back on their lives, they can look back and say "you know, i never did anything noteworthy, but at least Captain Marvel II didn't make much money! It was all worth it!"
Damn, that's impressive! What does ROI stand for? Yep. Pretty much.
Yes, it will.
Indeed. And they'll will continue to do so, unfortunately, which is just sad. XD
Me too! Yeah, that'd something. lol
Sorry for not actually showing the link to the video. I actually don't know how to copy, and paste on this new laptop since for some reason there's no right-click button, the whole cursor movement is all in one button...
