    Didn't he pilot that spaceship into that other spaceship and save something? It's been awhile for me too. Fortunately, it is on my Kindle. I shall see how accurate that memory is...:p

    It was weird IMO; he's still got it, and the Angels don't have so much they can afford to just give it away. I can see other teams being interested.

    The Angels have released Albert Pujols effective immediately. Have to admit, I didn't see that one coming, since he's hitting better than most of the team. And his defense was...okay. Don't see...

    Some of his costume designs are among the best I've seen in comics. Kent and Inza are both great characters I'd like to see more from.

    Damian Wayne and Naomi among others would beg to differ. I think fans accuse characters of being to "woke" when they are too woke, rather than as a first thing to do. And what is the status of...

    Congrats to Orioles' pitcher John Means, for tossing a no-hitter last night against the Mariners in a 6-0 victory. He struck out 12 and walked...no one. He faced the minimum possible batters after...

    I'm surprised no one has complained about "cultural appropriation" in racebending Supes.:p

    Is it the same amount though. They could be co-funding it to a smaller budget. I hope not, it's the best DC TV show around IMO.

    Be glad you don't follow Formula One. I'm fine with safety changes; no one wants to see the drivers get hurt, but some of the others changes....

    But to Unser, never saw him race, but I've...

    Well, I think you've hit upon the DC method of writing.:p Though mostly I think they use napkins and crayon in the actual process. In a writer's room, after all getting roaring drunk.

    I'm quoting this post because it summarizes my own views on whether you should race or gender or sexuality bend a character. Again, Jeff Goldblum's famous Jurassic Park advice applies to this...

    So, next day after Moderna the second shot. Seems I was a bit too optimistic I would escape side effects, but still, better than getting a bad case of the virus. Fortunately, I have time off,...

    Tim is far from redundant. Honestly, if your only criteria for a good character is race....be prepared for horrible characters. The writers won't have to do much to please you if that's true. Tim,...

    I live somewhat near Santa Anita, and the horrors there over the last few years have shown me what horse racing is, akin to greyhound racing and cock fighting, a "sport" that is needlessly cruel. I...

    Pieter had such a good mini that he should be the JSA's current Dr. Midnite. And unlike the prior JSA series using him, it should look to that mini for how to write him.

    Well, didn't care for the pitch. Don't know who he is, or what the accusations against him are. Is he related to John Landis?
