Crisis in Two Eras: Solid Gold – J

Congratulations and welcome to post three! For those keeping track, we’ve so far discussed where we are socially and how we got here (amongst many other things). So today must be about where we are going. Except it isn’t. It turns out, prophecy and clairvoyance are not in the Caped Persuader J’s utility cape (and…

Crisis in Two Eras: Cave Crawl and Boundaries Abound – J

If you have read my About Me page, you may recall I mentioned that one difference between Caped Persuader C and J is that C is suited for big city warfare; exploding buildings, car chases, and the rest of the dangers that follow politics. I, however, have prepared myself for the dark caves; mysterious, bizarre,…

Crisis in Two Eras: Reverse Punch -J

I’ve heard people talk about being born in the wrong time. That they were better designed for frontier life or medieval times or the swinging twenties. Not me. Internet, lasers, comic books, Bluetooth, pizza delivery, 3D movies, word processors, antibiotics, theme parks, the emergence of math as the predominant academia in modern living, progressive metal,…

Quick Shot: Social Justice Celebrity vs. Supergirl

  First, a story so that I can tell you a story. I once argued with a career pothead over the souls existence as monotonic atoms interacting within the brain. Another time, in my Logic 101 class as a senior in philosophy, I found a rambling by a 19 year old who “argued” that a…

My Summer Vacation or The Wisdom of Humility – J

My Summer Vacation Dear Dr. Xavier. I had a great summer. My family usually goes on vacation, but this year, we had a baby instead. While most people were on the water or rollercoastering, I was up every night trying to figure out how to do 8 hours of work in a row with two…

Welcome To htraE

Normally I wouldn’t taint this hallowed ground with talk of politics. I have for some time now had an extreme distaste politics. That’s not to say I’m not interested. I’ve watched the debates, and by watched I mean tuned in long enough to get nauseated by the rhetorical merry-go-round before turning to more palatable conversation…

A Universe in Review: Batman v. Superman

  So… the word’s out. This movie is not a critical darling. In fact, it’s not even really a fan darling. After the initial weekend’s record breaking money, it’s now dropping pretty quickly. However, I don’t need someone else’s approval to enjoy a movie. To wit, my opinion was formed without the taint of some…

A Universe in Review_CBS’s Supergirl: J

Wow, a title with three consecutive “esses”. But I digress..ess… … precious. Supergirl Like the titular character, the show is young and trying to find its place in a world that already has a bigger, better Superman. It has potential, though. The writers know the good material out there; brainiacs and bizzaros, For the Girl…

Fan Service and Happy Endings (heh): C

Fan Service and Happy Endings (heh): C

It’s tough to derive any meaningful lessons, political or otherwise from Deadpool. By design it is meant to be irreverent and fun. Any statements it has to make are of the clever cynicism/pop culture skewer variety. That being said, there is, and will be until we Caped Persuaders figure out that whole “making money for…

Dude Looks Like A Lady: J

Dude Looks Like A Lady: J

First of all, I loved Jessica Jones. I am talking here of the Netflix series, not the comic book, that I, admittedly, never knew existed before the show. I binged like crazy over that show. Staying up until 1 or 2 a.m., even when I had to wake at 5:30 in the morning to get…
