Aquaman Show more
Anyway, saw Aquaman last night and it was a blob of mediocrity. Bad guy wants to rule the world, good guy is gonna punch him. Didn’t even have the mostly-naked Jason Momoa content that my wife was counting on. ☹️
It bums me out that so many modern superhero movies are just “good guy beats bad guy with punching”. At its best, the genre should use the spectacle and broad themes to tell us something about ourselves: X-Men as an allegory to the civil rights movement, Batman showing us complex moral trade-offs, Black Panther giving us an alternate view of Africa full of dignity and power

Welcome Ichiddo Ramen to Highland Park! And congrats on these excellent tea mugs
Super cool that every listing of batteries on amazon is filled with reviewers who received counterfeit goods.
I was gonna add “lol capitalism” but now I’m actually curious what a solution would be. Higher fines/tighter enforcement? Reshape Amazon into a worker co-op (empower regular employees to reshape policy)? Nationalize manufacture of key consumer goods like batteries? What ya got for me, lefties?
Decided that I don’t care for single-issue comics so I’m distributing my stash among the local little free libraries. Started by dropping a few Lumberjanes on Snelling #KonMarvel

I found a delicious and incredibly easy biscuit recipe this weekend. Just self-rising flour and cream 👌🏻. My life’s goal to be able to cook all good breakfast foods inches closer https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2015/09/two-ingredient-never-fail-cream-biscuit-recipe.html
I could have asked her, even offered to pay her a princely sum to bring back this artifact from her travels
I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire the official lighter of the McMurdo Research Base of the United States Antarctica Program and I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW.
I will be haunted with this knowledge the rest of my life
You might ask, "Why would you call that horrible? It seems like a delightful artifact"
I KNOW! The existence of such an artifact delights and captivates me! The ~horrible~ thing is that a cousin of mine has *been stationed* at the McMurdo research base. She has (presumably) set foot in that gift shop!
I learned something horrible recently: The McMurdo research base in Antarctica has a gift shop, and at that gift shop one can acquire an official US Antarctica Program Zippo Lighter
