How crazy is it that I’m considering seeing Guardians of the Galaxy for the fourth time?
Saturday is my only me-day this week and originally I was going to spend it geeking with Skyrim and Winter Soldier, but then I realized that I’ve still got two summer tickets I need to use before early October and there are no really interesting movies coming out in that time.
Originally, one of the tickets was going to be for the second viewing for Lucy and the other for Sin City 2. However, Lucy was like Transcendence in that it wasn’t as good as I’d hoped and it wasn’t really a movie I want to see again, except maybe in a few years when I’ve forgotten most of what happened. I also finally watched the first Sin City movie - well, most of it at least because I don’t know if I actually finished watching it. At some point I just noticed that the DVD had stopped, but I have no memory of either stopping it or finishing watching it. I guess that tells a lot of what I thought of it. I mean, I get why T likes it because he’s a huge fan of film noir and Frank Miller, but it wasn’t really my kind of a movie, no matter how good it looked stylistically. So, I decided that I’m not going to see the second part, at least at the cinema.
This pretty much leaves me with Turtles, which has never been my thing, but the trailer seemed ok; I was warned that the trailer might not tell the truth, though, because apparently that dude is really good at making trailers and they may make the movies seem a lot better than they actually are. If they were still showing Amazing Spider-Man 2, I might actually pick it over Turtles because while I didn’t like the first movie, I’m still more interested in Spiderman than the Turtles.
In any case, out of all the choices I have at the moment, Guardians of the Galaxy for the 4th time seems the most tempting. Well, unless I manage to watch the first two Expendables movies and like them enough to want to watch the third one. In that case, I might drop Turtles and watch that one instead, unless we’ve already watched Turtles by then. Plus I doubt that I’ll get the other two movies watched any time soon, considering that I’m already marathoning tv-series two days a week with friends. I don’t have much stamina for watching things on my own on other days.
So, GotG x4 it will be, it seems.
Anonymous asked: Who are you getting your Ferguson information from? I'm having problems verifying what's actually happening!
That’s actually what’s taking me so long to update some of my posts; not only is the information surfacing slowly about his case specifically, but I make sure to cross reference at least three sources because some people are just blatantly lying to stir shit up.
Also live feeds keep going down and new ones pop back up but I know some of you are sensitive to video, so
Here’s a list of some twitter handles:
Journalists (All of these are either on the ground in Ferguson as I type this or actively covering events in Ferguson, both Brown’s case and the rallies):

- Claire Ward
- Christopher Hayes
- Greg Thomas
- Zellie Imani
- Cherrell Brown

I’m sure I forgot a bunch but here’s a start. I’ll update it periodically and reblog. Some of it is compilations from a bunch of sources, some is original content. Disclaimer: I’m not vouching for any other content on any of these blogs/twitters/instagrams or any that may be posted after this list but as of right now, the information regarding Ferguson and discussions taking place about the rallies/police and Mike Brown’s death seems accurate.
if you want to be included on any of these lists, shoot me a message with your web-address and I’ll check it out
