I divorced the Dancer when I realized that she was serious about not wanting children and because she lacked the ambition that I felt her talent called for. The Juggernaut divorced me because she needed more security than my life style provided. The Care Giver, so far,/… Read full post »
Warning: If heights genuinely upset you... I suggest you turn back now and don't play this video.

I was less than thrilled to watch the coming attraction of one of the newest comic book characters to make it to the theatre screen. I can forgive them for trying to make it a comedy. (I think the upcoming Green Lantern is going to be equally sorry.) My real… Read full post »
I’ve been mistaken for Anger more times than I can count. This does not surprise me. Anger is by far the more easily recognizable of the two of us. Anger will typically wrest control away from deliberate considerations, and reveal itself to the world i/… Read full post »
