It took me four sittings to get through Eternals. I don’t think it’s a bad movie, I just can’t really get invested in any of it. I just didn’t care. I wonder if they ever make an Eternals 2 (which the ending of the movie strongly suggests), would that make this movie more interesting? I can’t even guess. I just feel odd seeing Robb Stark and Jon Snow. The last time I saw them, Jon ended up on Robb’s throne. This time, Jon ends up with Robb’s girl. It’s just weird.

Up next is Shang-Chi. I enjoyed this one a lot the first time I watched it. This time, I can’t help but fear that I am going to see it as just standing in the way of No Way Home. I’m sure it will be fine. I’ll probably start watching it after I heat up a bowl of chicken broth. Mmm mmm good!

Oh yeah, I technically need to add Doctor Strange 2 to the end of the list as it’s out in theaters now. I am not going to include it on this rewatch though as there is no way in hell I am going to a theater. I thought about buying a ticket and then pirating it, but I think this time around I want to be a good boy. Surgical karma and shit, you know?

Moon Knight – The Next Marvel TV Show

I know nothing about this except that this video says it is coming to Disney+ on March 30th.

So the Eternals has half of the cast of Game of Thrones. Now Marvel is grabbing an actor from Star Wars. Nothing wrong with any of that except for the whole identity crisis thing. I mean, while watching Eternals I kept wanting Robb Stark and Jon Snow to team up. They didn’t have an actual opportunity for that back in Westeros. Jon moved out of the house before things went nuts and Robb was left holding the bag, you know?

Now, how long before Mr. Moon Knight (yes, that was a sad attempt at a Beatles pun) calls up Rey and Finn and starts asking for help with the bad guys?

Seriously, I have been really pleased with all of the Marvel TV shows on Disney+. Even though I know nothing about this character, I am looking forward to it.

Lunch Break

I started my lunch break a little late today. It’s now almost over. I need to dump the brain droppings so that I can get through the afternoon.

Eternals is out on Disney+. Hopefully we’ll get to watch it with Harry before he goes back to school. Did I mention that Harry’s going back to school? With all the drama over Bellana going to The Netherlands, I feel like we’ve been giving Harry the short end of the stick. We are driving him back to school on Sunday. Another drive to Vermont and back. I really enjoy that drive. I just wish he was coming with us for the return drive.

He did well in his first semester, obviously. He’s spent the last few weeks working for an internet based delivery company who shall remain nameless as he tries to build up his bank account while he still can. I remember those days. There was never enough money. I also remember trying to stretch $5.00 worth of gas across a full week so that I could stay on my budget. Ah, college life.

I am going to miss him, of course, but unlike his sister he is still close enough to us that if we need to get to him for whatever reason we can. It’ll take 3-4 hours, but we’ll get there. The Atlantic Ocean and the circumference of the Earth make that really tough in Bellana’s case.

What else is going on? I mentioned Jen going crazy in her office and in the living room by re-doing all of the plugs and extension chords and stuff. Basically she rewired half the house. It was amazing. This weekend… maybe… I will do the same to my office nook in the bed room. I have a big power strip that will replace all of the little once I have daisy chained in here. I’m going to have to take down the whole desk and start from scratch. Unlike Jen, I don’t mind working at a cluttered desk, but even I have my limits. I won’t say it will be neat when I am done, but maybe it will be a little more logical, and electrically safer. All of that because the love of my life inspired me.

What else? Car music tomorrow? Maybe. Depends on the weather. I would take a minute to check the forecast, but I have to get back to work instead.

May your afternoon be happy and productive and free of fascism and shit like that.
