Random Musings…

What do porn companies parody in a comic book universe? In this world, they do horrible parodies of comic books, but what do they do in, say, the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the DC one? Must admit, it would be hilarious to see a sort of crappy porn version of the Avengers in the MCU … and how would Thor react? Would we see a headline about a “freak lightning storm” obliterating the Vivid Entertainment building?

For that matter, what are the blockbuster movies in that universe? I could see (like “Watchmen”) comics veering away from super-powered individuals in a world where those guys might live next door, but it would be amusing if the DC cinematic universe is the massive super blockbuster series in the MCU that the Marvel movies are here …

Just some random thinky thoughts…

Ugh … Rewrites Suck

As stated earlier, I’m in the process of trying to force myself to get back into the writing groove and am really struggling with finding the words. I know roughly what I want to do, but man, it’s like pulling teeth from an angry bear or something.

See, I originally used a scene I’d written for “Transitional States,” a NCIS fanfic that I’ve since pulled from www.fanfiction.net for various reasons (abject, utter disgust with the show; knowing that I was never going to finish it; considering raiding chapters for other stuff) even though it was already up to 200K+ words (I think), but ultimately, the scene just didn’t work like I wanted it to. Hence, my decision to rewrite.

Come on, Muse. Throw me a bone here.

Florida vacay follow-up

Hmmm … so first week of September might actually work out better. In addition to it being close to my sister’s birthday (as well as one of her daughters), a friend of mine will be in Orlando … and the Gators are playing in Gainesville that week …

Damn. Seriously thinking about planning for a road trip …

Trying to talk myself out of something …

This Monday (May 30), my mom is relocating to Florida again – she’s mired in a cycle where she gets pissed off (and pisses off) one of my sisters so she moves to near the other sister – and I already mentioned to her that I’ll have to try and provision a trip to FL now. And now, I’m trying to talk myself out of doing so in October where I can hit Gainesville on Saturday to watch the Gators play, then drive down to Miami on Sunday to watch the Fins play…

Man, I can’t afford that! But what an awesome vacation it would be…

Trying to Get Back in the Groove

Man, it’s tough getting back into the correct mindset. I’m trying to rewrite a problematic chapter for “Fulcrum” (my completed but unpublished novel) and it’s turning out to be a lot tougher than I expected. I think what I need to do is sit down and actually outline the chapter instead of trying to just make it up as I go …

And the rewrites necessary for “Vorticity,” the unfinished sequel? Ouch.

Need to find my Muse again, dammit…

Flash Season 2 Finale

Honestly? I thought it was kind of crap. Bollocks, one might say. Once again, Barry Allen is the Stupidest Man Alive. There was very little actual logic in this episode … which doesn’t surprise me because logic has been in very short supply this entire season.

The final scenes seem to imply that they’re setting up the “Flashpoint Paradox” storyline. Right now, I’m so indifferent to the series that I’m just about to quit it entirely. Sigh.
