STRANGE LOG: 6-22-2017

It's that time once again for another STRANGE LOG! Yeah, it's been a minute (not really) but my world is constantly and rapidly changing now that I'm dealing a 1 month old son and a job that's sucking my soul out and eating away at my sanity like every season of "American Horror Story" I've ever watched (still accepting donations for lost brain cells, any and all donations are welcomed). There is a lot going on and a lot I want to talk about and get off my chest, so let's dive in.

My Thoughts On The "Black Panther" Trailer

For starters let's get one important thing out of the way, this is NOT a teaser trailer, this is a full on trailer! A teaser is like 30 to 45 seconds long, this is a full on minute and some change. And in that minute and some change we get a good look at a few things that I wanna address so let's talk about it and see what we see.

Anime RE-Claimed: The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya

Man...I'm disappointed. For starters, I kinda have a thing for Haruhi Suzumiya, she's graced by banner for awhile and she's just easy on the eyes but MAN is she an annoying character. In reality, the only selling point of this series is Kyon and even then it's not enough. Let's dive into "The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya".

It's Time We Talked About The "L O S T" Finale

So here we are, 7 years after the ending of one of television's biggest events that TV stations have been trying to replicate since, I'm talking about "L O S T". Love it for hate it, you can't deny that at the time "L O S T" was red hot in the ratings and red hot at water-coolers to the point where those who weren't watching "L O S T" were looked upon as living under a rock. In this article, I'm going to discuss the "L O S T" finale. Here's the thing, I loved the "L O S T" finale and I'll explain exactly what I liked about it but before I do that, I am not writing this to make people like the finale. I could careless if you like the finale or not, however, my main point of writing this article is because I've found that many people who didn't like the "L O S T" finale, didn't understand the finale to begin with. Not because they're stupid and I'm OH SO SMART, not at all but because of other reasons. So with all that being said, let's dive back into "L O S T" and get found...(shut up...)

Anime RE-Claimed: One Punch Man

So this is one of those animes that I've heard about here and there. While it looked interesting I was SUPER concerned that it's extremely simple premise was going to be convoluted in "animeness". If you haven't read my previous post, this is the definition of "Animeness" What is "animeness"? Animeness as I define it, is taking a simple and interesting concept and needlessly convoluting it to the point where the concept isn't interesting anymore. So what is "One Punch Man" about? "One Punch Man" follows the story of Saitama, a chrome domed guy who's a superhero as a hobby. Saitama has the ability to defeat enemies in (eponymously) one punch and it's awesome.

Anime RE-Claimed: High School Of The Dead

So as written hither-to in my previous post about my disappointment in modern anime I said I'd eventually check out some animes I've had my eyes on and it looks like that day has come. Yesterday I checked out "Highschool Of The Dead". "High School Of The Dead" is one of those anime series that constantly referenced for copious amount of fan service;

Case in point

Anyway, on my quest to inspect anime I've diced to give this series a shot and while I've only seen the first episode, I'm gonna drop a review and my thoughts. So here we go!

Do Comic Books Have A Diversity Problem?

No. That's the short answer. No. No and Nope. And in case you didn't read it the first time, NO! Sadly, there are some individuals who won't accept "No." as answer and will demand a more lengthy discussion of the topic. Okay, fine twist my arm, as if I haven't addressed the topic, time and time and time again, no. Because someone decided there is a contingency of people who really believe that comic books are dominated by extremely racist, sexist, misogynist bigots, I believe I have to address this using my African American immunity. Let's dive in.
