The lights are on

Right, this is my new blog, which I will hopefully be updating fairly frequently. I like to think I'm a fairly interesting guy and if you want some proof of that you can check out my other blog posts, although I really hope you don't because they're just terrible really. This blog is going to be about whatever I feel like talking about, hence the title. Could be about movies could be about games could be about comic books or Tv Shows or the alien parasite living in my brain, that was a joke (the parasite loves to make jokes) . In all seriousness this is going to be my place to talk about things I like, things I dislike, and what I get up to on a daily basis, should be fun and please feel free to comment. Now strap yourselves in because this is the official start of WTHIFL.
Today I woke up around noon and realized I hadn't picked up my weekly stack of Comic books because I didn't have money on Wednsday. My backlog of comics to read had dried up to a handful of licensed series and XO Manowar's and I now had money to remedy that:
This Weeks Haul
This week I picked up *deep breath*: Captain America, Bloodshot, Justice League, Savage Wolverine, The Shadow: Year One, XO Manowar, Danger Club,Daredevil, Revival, Thunderbolts, Thief of Thieves, Wonder Woman, Chew, and Batman Beyond Unlimited.
So far I've read the new issues of Chew, a series about a detective who gets psychic readings from whatever he eats and uses it to solve crimes, and Batman Beyond Unlimited, a collection of all the "Beyond" digital comics of the month compiled into a single issue which I only buy for the Adam Beechen stories that continue where the cartoon left off and fill in the gaps between the last episode and the Justice League Unlimited episode "Epilogue". If you've never watched any of those cartoons go watch Batman the animated series, Superman the animated series, Batman Beyond, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited right NOW, they put just about every cartoon currently running to shame, and while we're on the subject of recent cartoons you should watch Green Lantern the animated series and Symbionic Titan (the former created by Bruce Timm who worked on those other DC shows, the latter created by Genndy Tartakovsky, creator of Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack)
Later today I hung out with my best friend while he watched an anime about prepubescent girls who are guns, I spent the entire episode arguing that the shows premise made less sense than most anime's combined and when we got lunch he talked about the void Robotics;Notes has left in him as he feels that sort of emptiness you get after finishing a show you enjoy. I discussed the similar void 30 Rock had left in me a week ago when I finished plowing through the entire show in a couple weeks. This void led me to realize theres not a whole lot for me to look forward to television wise for a while, Archer just finished it latest season and I jumped off Community at the start of the season, right now I've only got new episodes of Hannibal and Gravity Falls to look forward to, which is an odd statement. Until the new episodes of Venture Bros., Arrested Development, and Breaking Bad I've got few options in terms of currently running shows. I do also have Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo to finish as well, along with a slew of movies but I've yet to have the drive to plow through those. Thankfully a couple nights ago I started watching Parks and Recreation and I'm thinking that'll be a good way to spend my time along with the Daily Show and the Colbert Report.
After Lunch we went back to his house and watched the first half of the Quentin Tarantino scripted True Romance, which is basically a Tarantino film directed by another guy, apart from some slight style changes it might as well have been made by Tarantino unlike similarly Tarantino penned films "From Dusk till Dawn and Natural Born Killers" the former of which was basically a Robert Rodriguez film and the latter which was so heavily altered Tarantino only got a story credit.
Watch it if you like Tarantino!
Then while browsing the internet I came across this beauty:
The fantastic movie DRIVE along with Bronson and Valhalla Rising plus loads of other goodies, thank you France, for making me extremely jealous
We then had to come to my house and decided to watch Martin Mcdonagh's In Bruges, a melancholy film about two hit men hiding out in a Belgian tourist trap town, its hilarious, its poignant, its great and I can't talk too much about it because I'd just end up spoiling it, Mcdonagh also directed Seven Psychopaths recently which is even better, maybe watch them both and have a double feature
The Soundtrack's Great Too
If Anything, You'll Probably Have An Appreciation For Collin Farrell By The End
And I think that's it for now, I feel like this should work for right now, I understand I was a bit all over the place here but hopefully in the future my thoughts and opinions will be more organized and focused, stay tuned for more WTHIFL's and leave me your thoughts and comments, I'll now leave you with a random Factoid: Scott Bakula voiced Danny the cat in Cats Don't Dance.
