I've been strangely compelled by this picture for a couple of days now. Morrissey is aging well. No, I mean he's really aging well. The years look good on him. Not only does he look much better than any other rock or pop star his age, which only goes to prove that there's some truth to the theory that excessive drugs and drink age you, but he looks better now than he did when he was younger and supposedly in his prime.
I'm not quite sure what to think of the fact that Morrissey is triggering all my Daddy fixations.
Beat to hell Silver Age DC comics really are your best entertainment value per dollar.
I keep thinking I should write some on my reactions to the DC "One Year Later" books I've read. But with only a few out so far it seems premature to try and talk about them authoritatively. But waiting for them to all come out seems to be a good way to waste the topicality of the subject.
Or perhaps I'm just stuck trying to think of something more insightful than "I would have liked Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis more if it had fewer connections to previous Aquaman titles" or "I was under-whelmed by James Robinson's first issue of Detective, and thought the reintroduction of Gordon and Bullock to the police-force was an unnecessary step backwards."
Similarly, I'm tempted to talk about Infinite Crisis #5 because the impression I've gotten is that many people were disappointed in it, and thought it was relatively low-key. Which surprises me, because I can't think of anything duller than thirty-two pages of Superman fighting Superman. My reaction was that it was a welcome step back to allow some plot advancement through methods other than people hitting each other.
But then, I don't talk about cross-over comics on this site anymore.
(I did have an idea for a series of in-depth reviews and discussions to do here, but I've decided I can't. It would involve reading Civil War.)
Purely by happenstance I discovered that VH1, having run out of decades to plunder for tired pop culture "jokes," has started focusing on random nouns, starting with I Love Toys. If you missed it, don't worry, it's a VH1 show, so it'll be run for freaking ever.
What's irrationally annoyed me about it is, these people they have on the show aren't the slightest bit entertaining. Even people who genuinely are funny, aren't funny on these "I Love" shows. Hell, more than half of these people I only know as "that guy from the 'I Love' show!" Yet I can't turn away. I feel like I must watch.
At least now we know what happens to Daily Show correspondents when they leave the show. (Didn't Mo Rocca used to be funny?)
