I try to only do these off-week mini-entries every seven weeks or so. It's now been nine weeks. A couple of things happened that informed more full entries in the last two weeks. Mainly just a robbery and a rock concert. No need to go back into it, go read it for yourself! I'm due a break; my therapist says so!
A lot of things are happening here at Party Now, Apocalypse Later. "The Once and Future Orson Welles" is (still) on track for publication later this year and "The Fourth Wall" is firmly in production. In fact, I spent most of the afternoon in the recording studio laying down some dialogue for the latter. I'm also sleeping occasionally, which I'm told might improve the stuff we put out. Maybe we'll talk a little bit more about that in the weeks to come.
I did want to share one thought this week that, while important, isn't really enough for its own full entry.
Logan (2017) was pretty terrific. It delivered on all the promise of the fantastic trailer but there is one thought that I'm not seeing anyone else zero in on, and I thought I'd share it with you here. Warning, significant spoilers for the movie follow, if you haven't seen the movie yet.
Seriously, MAJOR spoilers.
Still here? Okay.
Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) has survived a lot, including but not limited to: The Cuban Missile Crisis, the attempt on Richard Nixon's life, the Age of Apocalypse, the disaster at Alkali Lake, the onslaught of Sentinels, and DEATH. Seriously, the man survived death! But then he spends two nights in Oklahoma City, and is dead forever. Take the warning, folks. The place is worse than Kryptonite.
