Checked this out from the library today:

This’ll be the first time I’ve read a Hellboy story. I’m gonna get started on it tonight.

Forgot to follow-up this post.

So yeah, anyway, this was an awesome, awesome read. I don’t know if I can say I like Mignola’s art style, but I quite admire the Kirby influence within it and it does suit itself well for this type of action-packed, over-the-top story. And that ending – man, that ending only left me wanting more, which is what every good ending should do.

Suffice it to say, I’m going to read more Hellboy. I’ve already checked the next two volumes out of the library and will get started on them right away.

Betsy DeVos, a galactically rich and galactically evil anti-public school, anti-gay rights donor appointed by Donald Trump to be our country’s next Education Secretary, is going through confirmation hearings tonight (sports angle: her shitty father owns the Orlando Magic). She was asked about guns in schools. She said it was worth exploring. Her reasoning? “Grizzly bears.”

This is no-shit good advice. I can’t tell you how many times through my years in California’s public school system my classmates and I were threatened by grizzly bears. Once at recess, I kicked the ball too far and my friend Chris had to go get it. He never came back and a week later they found his mangled body in a local grizzly bear den. The memory still haunts me to this day. I miss you Chris. I’m sorry.

What does this bring to mind? Oh yes:

Now that many people have mentioned the “Apocalypse Now” shot, it got me wondering… what was the purpose of it in the first place? Simply homage? The TIEs have a sunset behind them and it is (or seemed like) the middle of the day on Takodana. Oh well…

JEDIT: Ok, never mind about the middle of the day…

http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/a/ae/Takodana_surface_1.png/revision/latest?cb=20160416023739

http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/d/d8/Takodana_surface_2.png/revision/latest?cb=20160416023807

The time of day seems to change on a whim on Takodana. It’s late afternoon when Rey steps out of the Falcon:
Afternoon
…then it’s mid-day when she runs away from the castle:
Overcast or something
…then the apocalypse TIEs happen at sunset, then it’s mid-day again through the attack, then it’s nearly sunset when Leia arrives:
Sunset Again

I have two possible answers to this conundrum:

  • Takodana has seriously screwed up rotation.
  • Someone’s doing the time warp again.

I see images like that and wonder how they are in the same universe as that quaint 70’s movie. You know, the one featuring a farmboy, a down-on-his-luck hot rod driver and his giant doglike sidekick, and a sassy Mexican Revolution styled princess.

It’s almost as if it’s a realistic depiction of a galaxy, where things are different depending on the location or time.

LOL. There’s nothing “different” about how Legacy portrayed anything.

Oh wait, you should check out another movie, Four Rooms.

Not as bad as Dusk but still bad.

Which was your breaking point – the nympho witches or the rotting hooker under the mattress?

^Satanist Jesuit liberal neo-national socialist GAY AGENDA coded propaganda perpetuated by NEW WORLD ORDER proponents/Illuminati members and their Trump-hating MASONIC demon spawn!

This is my favorite Nine Inch Nails song.

Reznor tends to focus on self-loathing and general misanthropy. You must be thinking of Marilyn Manson.
