random thoughts

1) I did *not* get laid off from work today. Yay! But many people were, which is sad. It's also been a very quiet day.

2) The Theodore Sturgeon Award Finalists were announced today ( What an honor for those nominated. I need to read more Theodore Sturgeon. I need to try to write like Theodore Sturgeon.

3) We're entering the season of Big Giant Movies. I saw Avengers Age of Ultron. Fun, some funny and different moments, but also formulaic and predictable. And why have the whole Black Widow / Hulk romance plot? I did enjoy seeing me some Vision, who was always my favorite Avenger. And Thanos is coming, so I hearken back to the great Jim Starlin storyline in Avengers Annual #7 and Marvel Two-In-One Annual #from 1977.

Avengers Annual #7 =

Marvel Two-In-One Annual #2 =

Man, I loved that story.

4) Following the style of the close of NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast: What's making me happy this week? (Beyond not being laid off).

Answer: Cowboy Bebop. I am at long last watching this series, and enjoying it TREMENDOUSLY. Interesting characters with problems and backstory, great story telling style, wonderful visuals, detailed world-building, whole lotta spaceships but still in our solar system, and awesome music. Very Highly Recommended.
