On the Many Flavors of Steve Rogers, Bizarre Career Pivots, and the Most Hated Noise Known to Man
Thank you very much for the shout, Eric. Still finding my way on Substack (and my presence has been intermittent this week) but I'm slowly getting there. :)
Funny story (true story), but Steve Rogers is how I learned that I'm not just into women. Specifically, the scene in Age of Ultron when he ripped the log in half and I suddenly thought of some other things he could do with his hands.
I voted for hunky glistening post-serum Steve, is what I'm trying to say.
Sprinting to check my inbox for WMCJ piece. A sprint is what’s happening. 💥💥💥
Brilliant links this week! Loved the Rick James skit and then catching a glimpse of 4 panel wonders! Brilliant.
Ahhhh the leaf blowers! Our neighbor who also was a professional lawn servicer, had not only one leaf blower but two! Double leaf blower!!
I always think about doing NaNoWriMo. I've even started it a few times. Unfortunately the real world always gets in the way.
Great list. Dueling leaf blowers for the win.
You have inspired me. I will be publishing a list of eight things I'm grateful for in your honor. Didn't someone once say that imitation was the best form of flattery?
I'm still salty about Grantland's demise. Rembert Browne used to leave me wheezing--and that's just one of many whose work I still miss. I'm rooting for your streak of mentioning it to continue!
I feel your leaf blower pain! And now your nanowrimo pain as you just inspired me to sign up for it - eek!
I'm a Peggy Carter fan thru and thru. The First Avenger is my favorite because of Steve's evolution not just physically but emotionally and socially. Peggy (just like Bucky) is with Steve from the beginning. I chose Old man Steve Rodgers because it means he made it back to her in time for that slow dance 💗
It would be interesting to compare the current Cap and Bucky with their counterparts in the vintage Simon-Kirby comics of the 1940s. Of course, the latter pair were less dramatically complex...
I’ll probably comment again when I’m done but leaf blowers paired with work from home and one of my neighbors even uses his for grass clippings nearly drove me insane.
I’m not mad I’m just disappointed at the disrespect for Wash.
