R.I.P., Johnny

So, it was Johnny that bought the farm in FF and not the Thing or Sue. I was wrong. Any way you cut it, it’s still profoundly dumb. Everyone knows they are just going to bring him back at some point in the future. Superman and Batman have both died and they came back. Captain […]

I just finished reading Isaac Asimov’s Complete Robot. What a great collection of short stories. I have read many of them before but it has been awhile.

There’s all the usual action and zombie killing but there are also some twists and turns regarding some of the […]
