I dropped all fitness excuses when I started this weekly column back in March. While it’s been demanding, I’m seeing results I haven’t seen in years! This time last year, I could barely do 22 rows in one set, and now I’m averaging 165.9 rows per 5-minute set. It’s not all physical, either. I have more mental focus, resilience, and I’ve made some friends along the way. Let’s drop the excuses and get inspired to exercise more!
“You can listen to whatever you want in the [float] tank.” My thoughts immediately went to grindcore band Wormrot. I prepped their 2016 album Voices [shown below, left] for my next session. When the album queued up, after Runaljod: Ragnarok by Wardruna concluded, what an incredibly subversive moment! Twenty-six minutes later, I gained a deeper appreciation for some of the most abrasive music I’ve found outside atonal noise music. What’s the appeal? Isn’t pop music nicer?
Before reviewing last year’s Marvel Legends Juggernaut wave, let’s warm-up! The “Bucky” Captain America action figure established a medium-build male character baseline buck for years and was perhaps best exemplified with Daredevil. We (written by Zombiepaper with consultation by Collector, “quoted in blue font”) will consider both the standard red Daredevil and the first appearance yellow Daredevil interchangeably. Do we think picking this now iconic action figure was a good call? Can it be improved?
There’s this idea that once we grow up we should put away our childhood. Why? Who’s to say that those of us that once enjoyed MOTU, TMNT, G.I. Joe, and X-Men toys cannot continue to enjoy them? How about going further to create, recreate, or critique action figures? Let’s explore this idea further in future posts, perhaps in reviews hinted at with this preview photo? Until then, here’s our subjective review structure.
