"I don't follow the current MU, so I had no idea who "Daisy" was, but the minute they tipped that the slightly wild-haired crazy scientist guy's name is Cal, I got all smiley!
Kyle MacLachlan is my new favorite thing on this…"
"Two things right now.
1.) I am currently watching (on Hulu) a short-lived British TV series called Spy. I love it. It is freakin' brilliant. I know nothing of any of the actors, but I just love the humor and the sharp dialog. It's about a…"
"Most people would be too smart to accept an invitation to spend a few days alone on a boat in the middle of a swamp with a couple of perfect strangers, but Mark must figure that any one who plans to mine a swamp will fall for anything."
"In Lego Batman 3, when you put Wonder Woman in flying mode, the game starts playing the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman theme music (including the backup singers singing "Wonder Wo-maaannn!!!").
That made me laugh out loud."
"The first couple of minutes of the Selfie pilot pushed the limits of bad taste about as far as I'm willing to take on TV. I thought it was all improvement from there, and I'm sorry that it's been cancelled. My…"
"I am in charge of the Veterans' Day program at school. Today, I found out that the kid whom I had trusted to give the major speech of the program had chipped his two front teeth over the weekend while playing basketball. This kid could be the…"
"The "special sneak preview" scene (rolled out by Marvel after the trailer leaked) was also fun. The Lad and I especially liked the expression on Thor's face when Cap almost managed to move the hammer. I had to explain…"
"I tried, but too much about Arrested Development just rubbed me the wrong way.
In the first episode I watched, Julia Louis-Dreyfus was guest-starring as a lawyer who had been hired to be a surrogate mother for two gay male police officers who…"
Thanks fot the welcome! Man, you ARE old! I don't even want to think about how long I've been writing my column. I figured I had a half-dozen topics tops, but they just keep coming. I'm glad you enjoy it.
I appreciate you taking the time to tell me that. In fact, I'm right in the middle of preparing the next Deck Log entry when I took a moment to check my new e-mail.
I imagine all of us leave a bigger wake than what we realise. But it's nice to, every once in a while, have somebody tell us so. I'm glad you enjoy the column. Many moons ago, when Rich Lane approached me with the idea, my first concern (after wondering if there was enough material to keep a Silver-Age column going for long) was if anybody would have any interest in reading it.
The hit-counters tell me that somebody's out there reading it, but it's an especial treat to get a note like yours. I completely understand the business about not saying anything unless you have something to say. In reflexion, I'm the same way. Not only on threads here, but I frequent other sites regularly, and have yet to post a comment---because there's nothing I can add to the commentary.
