Superman

The thing I love about Man of Steel is that it is a movie about Superman, and not Clark Kent.

Don't get me wrong, I loved Superman 1 and 2 (probably even 3). I also really enjoyed the way Superman Returns reminded me of my childhood and Superman 1 and 2.  But Man of Steel captured it for me in a way the others didn't. It depicted a Superman who had a abilities but no combat training, someone who had, had to hold back his entire life and never really cut loose.

Man of Steel finally have me a connection to the Superman character that I had only felt for Batman previously. Ultimately, it allows for me to see them as two sides of the same coin. Two sons without Parents, two men driven by feelings of responsibility and honor. Two hero's to look up to.

Xmas fun and games.

I'm slowly filling up my OUYA with games for Xmas day. I'm picturing a family scoreboard and hopefully we'll all still be friends at the end of it.

Life has a way of setting you straight.

Sometimes we all need a little course correction, and then the Universe steps in and gives it to you.

So tonight (like many other people), I caved and ran out to buy a lottery ticket. I couldn't help it, even a little taste of that jackpot could change my life.

So I go to the closest CVS and see this old man sitting next to the ticket machine (which I have never used), talking to people blas they buy their tickets and seemingly annoying them all. I'm a bit of an introvert so chatting with strangers is not my idea of a good time. I was also raised to be polite and have trouble being rude to people.... Basically I'm screwed.

Finally its my turn, I'm already annoyed with him and he hasn't even spoken to me. First ticket goes in easy, the second one for the Mega draw won't... WTH? Then the old man I was all annoyed with shows me you have to enter these numbers, and how to do it correctly.

I am a dick.

Lesson learned and hopefully remembered.

(Don't be a dick.)
