We’ve just finished up the wake and Shadow is hungover. One of the things I like about American Gods is that Mr. Wednesday shows up, says “hey, I’m driving, you’re not going to be good for anything for at least an hour” and then drives. He doesn’recriminate, he doesn’t say “oh, you’re hung over… mmm…”. He just says “come on, we’ve stuff to do” and then hits the road.
There’s stuff you worry about. There’s stuff you don’t worry about. Mr. Wednesday knows the difference.
I also watched All-Star Superman (I’m usually not a Superman guy but… hey, four bucks, right?) and was surprised that I enjoyed it. Now, it wasn’t *NEARLY* as good as Superman vs. The Elite (also available for four bucks!) but it was a good story. Here’s the basic idea behind the story: Lex Luthor sets a trap on the sun and Superman, in the process of saving the day, flies right into it. The trap gives Superman “super-cancer”. (Not really a spoiler, this happens in the first few minutes.) As it turns out, Superman has a bucket list… and we see Superman check the boxes off one by one.
And I’m fixin’ to go out to our local bar that’s going to show the Royal Rumble and I’m going to be cheering for CM Punk, all the way.
So… what have you been watching and/or reading?
