THOR (2014) #8

When I got to the last page I was, like, what?!?!?!

I picked up the latest issue a few days ago at one of my fave comic shops — New England Comics in Quincy, MA. There’s been a lot of press/spoilers floating around and I avoided all news related to it.

Please note that this series is the first time reading anything Thor. Up until this point, I thought he was a weird character, but then I watched the films and he started making sense. So, in terms of all the back story and such I have no point of reference. But, I will start researching around because I need to make sense of this and how it works.

The reveal was a surprise but not a surprise. I just need to know how it all works.

To be continued.

Even if my friends shared the same name, everyone got their own personal thank you sketch 🙂

This was actually fun. Done via Facebook.

Louis C.K. ‘SNL’ Monologue on Mild Racism

posted in: Pop Culture | 0

Louis-C.K.

I enjoy Louis C.K.‘s comedy — I even jumped at the chance to get tickets to his show back in Boston a few years back. The part of his monologue on  mild racism is so spot on.

Racism is not just about the blatant, in your face, and calling you a racial epithet. It’s also about the daily and ‘innocuous” thoughts that run in your head.

My Top 5 Additional Cameo Picks for Taylor Swift’s new video “Bad Blood”

taylor-swift-catastrophe

uhhhhh…the only other video I played on repeat was Taylor Swift’s Blank Space. I will be adding Bad Blood to it.

I absolutely love the story, all the cameos, and the ladies kicking ass. I just wish that Taylor had an Asian friend or two. Here are my Top 5 picks:

 

1. Jamie Chung

Sin-City-A-Dame-To-Kill-For-23-Jamie-Chung

Jamie Chung played Miho in…SIN CITY — which looks to be one of the inspirations for the music video. She also played Mu Lan on Once Upon a Time. She’s proven that she can do some killing. Also, I first saw her on MTV’s The Real World: San Diego and am tickled that she’s created a career for herself — she was my fave cast on that show because she didn’t cause any drama. 

 

2. Ming-Na

Shadows_292

Two words for Ming-Na other than her first name. Agent May. Enough said.

 

3. Maggie Q

I only ever watched an episode of the Nikita TV series, but Maggie Q looked pretty bad ass in that. Plus, she’s been well trained in the Hong Kong action movie industry.

 

4. Constance Wu

I watched Parallels on Netflix the other day and it was freakin’ awesome and because I’m obsessed with parallel universes. I hope to gawd that they continue filming because you can’t just leave me hanging like that. Constance Wu gave some badassery Orphan Black style (please note that I still need to watch Orphan Black, but what I do know of the show are the clones-but-not-clones).

 

5. Grace Park

Battlestar-Galactica-Boomer
Grace Park played Boomer on Battlestar Galactica. I was obsessively watching it for the first several episodes until it got too drama-filled for me with who’s a cylon/who’s not.

They all would’ve made great additions to the video.

Umm…I cannot wait for Selene to return. Well, her and Alice from Resident Evil. I love these two franchises!

Underworld 5 is moving forward, and Kate Beckinsale is set to reprise her role as the badass vampire Selene. I’ve enjoyed the films in the Underworld franchise, and it’s great to see that Beckinsale is willing to come back for more action. READ MORE

Stripped: The Comics Documentary

posted in: In Real Life, On Comics and Such | 0

So, I have been at a crossroads with my comic — where is it going? what am I doing? And then, I take a break. Fire up Netflix on the Mister’s PS3 and what do I see in the ‘Recently Added’ queue? Stripped.

Oh man, can I say how inspired I am? To learn about the history, the process, and to hear from some of my cartoon heroes! I now have a more clear idea of what I want to do.

I do have the compilation book I’m putting together, but I’m also going to start fleshing out ah-Lin’s character and her world some more. This is quite momentous given that tomorrow is my birthday and a lot of stuff has been going on behind the scenes that have been a bit challenging.

But, in the very wise words of the great P. Diddy, “Can’t nobody hold me down, oh no I got to keep on movin’.”

STRIPPED is the ultimate love-letter to comic strips. It brings together the world’s best cartoonists to talk about the art form they love, and what happens to it as newspapers die.

Ronda Rousey, Why You Single?

posted in: I Am Woman Hear Me Roar | 0

“I’m young, successful and I’m single. Why is that a bad thing?” she said. “I don’t hear any of the guys being asked these questions. Because if they’re young and successful and single everyone’s like ‘Baller! That guy is awesome, he’s living the dream.’ [The media] is never bugging them about that so why do I get bugged about it?” READ MORE

You go, Rhonda!

I want to read her autobiography, “My Fight / Your Fight“.
