February was a crazy busy month that I didn’t get around to blogging much. Remind me about that at the end of the year when I panic about my viewership decreasing. I got new spectacles, & now I’m afraid strangers online that haven’t seen my visage won’t recognize me. Then I discovered local McDonald’s charges seventy cents more for a large shamrock shake than one on the highway. The mall one is furthest away & cheapest yet by thirty cents. So if I travel far enough from home I’ll eventually be able to get shamrock shakes for a penny!
The trailer for TMNT: Mutant Mayhem just dropped. I don’t have too much to say about that yet, so let’s chat about random DC cartoons first. (Sorry, draft of random non-DC cartoons!) There will be SPOILERS for Young Justice & miscellaneous animated movies. I would’ve blogged on James Gunn’s “Gods & Monsters” DC Studios announcements, but I worry it’ll just become frustrating vaporware like Batgirl thanks to David Zaslav. I swear Zaslav becoiming WB Discovery CEO is going to be my supervillain origin story. Hardcore MODOK fetishistscan read my Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania collaboreview again instead.
This blog is made of DC Comics ramblings that aren’t about Batman. He’s so ubiquitous that it’s harder than it sounds. Much like X-Men when it comes to Marvel, I have an easier time filling up a blog just about the Bat-corner of DC. Although with the amount of Batman content that it churns out, it may be more apt to say there’s a non-Batman corner of DC. So some Batman may have unavoidably seeped in here. This is organized into Superman, Wonder Woman, assorted Justice Leaguers that didn’t merit being separated by tildes, & Watchmen. Most miscellaneous thoughts about the confusing state of DC animation (RIP Kevin Conroy) & movies will also be covered sometime later. Unlike last week’s Christmas special review, this jumble is perfect for reading at any season. Click the contextual links before they get scrubbed & I have to put effort into stealing others’ jokes by recreating them from the ground up.
The headline was originally going to be “Three Thousand Years Of Longing For Stargirl,” but it sounded a tad too skeevy. I doubt anybody’s been that horny for Stargirl for so long anyway. I’m glad its third season is now here though! Ordinarily I’d wait until the season was over to review it all at once, but those posts might be prohibitively long. Also The CW series I watch that haven’t been massacred aren’t returning this fall, so there’s not going to be as much topic competition this year. I did want to recommend Three Thousand Years Of Longing though since it’s unjustly bombing. Both include a Djinn, so they’ve got more commonality than Riverdale & The Sandman (aside from serial killer conventions). Do you wish for SPOILERS?
It’s cat bloggin’ time! Recently I celebrated my cat’s tenth birthday. (I waited until after to write this headline & introduction so as not to jinx it with tragedy.) I don’t know if it’s her real birthday, but it’s the one I assigned her in lieu of a birth certificate. It’s also not her tenth anniversary of being the feline in residence. (Until her family pays her ransom, this cat will continue to be my hostage.) Rather than continuously refer to her generically, I will reveal her first name starts with D. This will maintain a level of privacy for her & prevent me from having to commit to one spelling online. Happy decade to the D-Cat!
Unlike the inflatable birthday hat fiasco, this year I went out of my way to purchase her Yeoww! catnip toys from Pet Goods she actually appreciates. The path of least resistance works to placate pussycats! Hopefully they’ll make some catnip fish in new colors because I believe she now has the complete set. She’s quite fond of nip-pineapple. I was able to get plenty of photos of her playing with her new toys, but the lighting wasn’t ideal. So here’s some of her wielding hammers instead!
“These tools are mine now. I am become a hammerist.”
Why does anyone still go to Central City’s Jitters? Its loyalty rewards program is unbeatable, & tourists are thrilled to see meta-crooks wreck the light fixtures! Those aren’t SPOILERS ahead for the latest The Flash episode, but they could be for the overall series. I’ll also ramble about Batwoman,DC Multiverse toys, & The Batman in a desperate attempt at relevancy for my seventh anniversary blog.
I finally got around to publishing my annual cat post! As usual, it contains anecdotes about my kitty & assorted cat links with minimal narrative cohesion. Many of the links I’d collected over the year turned out to be from retricted or deleted accounts the day before just to make this more challenging. I even found new things to say about Cats. So bully for you if that’s what you’ve been waiting for from my blog! If not, come back soon for the forthcoming The Flash Armageddon, Rivervale, Spider-Man: No Way Home, & Hawkeye reviews torrent! Maybe I’ll enjoy some of them more than Batwoman’s third season?
