UP! DATE!

Short post today. I’m getting set up on AO3, and as such I’m going to be re-writing the entries in The Uncanny X-Men. Nothing major, but there’s ideas and concepts that didn’t get into the previous versions I did and I want to add them. Also there are some characterization mistakes that I made that need to be corrected.

As the entries are re-written, I will be re-uploading them to both Tumblr and Fanfiction.net. So keep an eye out!

Some Thoughts On The Upcoming Black Panter Movie

Hi guys! So I’ve got some good news: the next chapter of The Uncanny X-Men should be out within the next couple of weeks! Three at the most.

In the meantime, however, I thought I would share some of my thoughts about the upcoming Black Panther movie.

Thing is, I’ve never read a Black Panther comic and only one, maybe two others with him in it. My exposure to the character has been pretty much limited to Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Captain America: Civil War. So this is about as close to the point of view of the general audience who have never heard of Black Panther before as you’re going to get.

Mr. Darcy As Raymond Chandler’s Hero

So I’m still working on my analyses of Universal Horror films. Given how my work on Dracula (1931) turned out, however, I think that those analyses need something of re-think. At least in how I do them.

While I’m puzzling that out, I thought I’d keep my dedicated readers entertained by offering other analyses. In particular, today, we’re going to be talking about one Fitzwilliam Darcy and how is damn near literally the incarnation of Raymond Chandler’s hero as expressed in his landmark essay “The Simple Art of Murder.”

Today Is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

At least in the States, anyway. We don’t have this particular holiday in Canada.

Now, American history is not my strong suit. I’m much more of ancient and medieval history kind of guy. So I’m not going to insult the good doctor by engaging in an analysis I’m not qualified to give.

So I’ll let the man speak for himself:

True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.-1955, in response to a claim that he was ‘disturbing the peace’ with the Montgomery Bus Boycott

 

Dracula (1931) Analysis, Part 6

A heatwave moved right into town last week/she came from the island of Martinique/the can can she dances will make you fry/the can can is really the reason why/we’re having a heat wave/a tropical heatwave/the temperature’s rising/it isn’t surprising…

Okay, that had nothing to do with Dracula (1931) or Dr. Abraham van Helsing. It does, however, have everything to do with the fact that it’s finally hot enough to continue writing in this Godzilla-forsaken place!

So join me under the cut for the most famous doctor in all of vampire-dom!
