Peli Peli Kitchen - Restaurant Ryview

Hi Everybody!

I don't know if I've done a restaurant ryview yet, so I'll treat this like my first one!

If you live in Houston, you should definitely read this. If you don't, feel free to go to another article, because this is about a restaurant in Houston. Or travel to Houston and eat here. Or ignore me and don't eat here. I'm not your supervisor.

Happy 200,000!

Hi Everybody!

Who makes these? [1]

Some of you might recall that I had a celebration post when I hit 100,000 blogger views. It took me 20 months to get there (quick math moment: around 5,000 per month).

I am proud to announce that I just passed 200,000 blogger views (yesterday, but who's counting). It took a mere additional 11 months to get to this one (around 9,000 per month).

The Confusing State Of Marvel Theme Park Rules

Hi Everybody!

So this is super off topic, but I recently looked into some of the details, and I wanted to share some of my findings.

Let's start with a brief introduction of what I'm talking about.

Back in the 1990s, Marvel was desperate for some cash flow. Their sales were doing the trick, or they couldn't afford the fat stacks of coke they had gotten used to, or whatever, and they needed money, so they started whoring out everything they could. They sold movie rights to some of their biggest properties like X-men (to Fox) and Spider-man (to Sony). But they also sold theme park rights to Universal (for their then-future themepark Islands of Adventure).

If this all seems kinda dry to you, don't worry, it'll get a lot drier by the end. So, you know, maybe moisten yourself before reading further.
