SHIELD Intercepts Leave Marvel Puzzle Quest - Ryview RyPort

Hi Everybody!

Just when you thought "is he finally done with this blog?" I swoop back in with some weird slightly-news post.


A quick note on that: I've made a lot of lofty goals in the past: I'll post one article every weekday! I won't disappear for months between posts! I'll wear pants today!

At this point, given how busy I've been with my actual paying job and so forth, I think it's time to lay out a new mission statement: I will make new posts when I'm willing an able. There may be gaps. It may be off topic. It may be inconsistent. But in the long run, this isn't go away. My incoherent babbling will go on for years to come. It just may not happen for some of the intervening months...

Anywho, time for a news!

Idling With A Twist of Sim City - Bit City Ryview

Bit City, by NimbleBit.

I started playing Bit City because an io9 article told me to. It's not my proudest moment, but I can say that it's a fairly enjoyable way to spend your time tapping.

Archer Season 8 Episode 1: No Good Deed Ryview

Hi Everybody!

Archer is back!

And so am I!

After a month of absence (sorry about that, single reader), I'm proud to announce my triumphant return to writing articles (and making videos!!1!) that no one will watch or read. Except for you, apparently...

At any rate, true to form with my usual off-topicness, my return article is a ryview of a tv episode (it's like a game, except, well, it's nothing like a game).

So enjoy...

Archer Season 8, Episode 1: No Good Deed

WARNING: The following post will contains mild spoilers for the previous season on Archer, so if you haven't watched season 7, go to your shame corner and turn on netflix. I will avoid spoiling *almost* anything from Season 8.

The Plot for The Batman (2018(?) Movie)

Hi Everybody!

Usually my "The Plot for" articles are entirely parody and/or humor. In this case, I actually wanted to have a serious discussion with all of you about how this movie needs to go.

"This movie needs all the help it can get" - Ben Affleck, probably, when he abandoned directing it [1]

Let's start with a few facts/opinions/rumors:

1) Regardless of any behind the scenes shenanigans going on right now, it still looks like Batfleck (probably) will be facing off against DeathJoe (Deathstroke played by Joe Manganiello, official cute mashup name in progress).

2) It was heavily implied during BvS:DoJ (because fuck the full title) that the Joker had already killed Jason Todd. This is also probable given the film's numerous references and homages to The Dark Knight Returns, which featured a Batman who retired due to Jason's death.

3) There is apparently a Nightwing movie in production, which helps solidify the probably theory that Robin as Dick Grayson has come and gone.

Now, I know what you're thinking: I spent 2 minutes reading that pile of facts? What have you done for me lately?

Shut up and buckle in.

Ryviews in Real Life - The Oakland Zoo

Hi Everybody!

I recently went to the Oakland Zoo for the first time. The only thing I saw on Yelp reviews beforehand was that it was small for a city of this size. I thought "hey, I have a free day. Let's check it out!"

Well, let me tell you...

It's small for a city of this size.
