Captain America shares his views on immigration.  You really don't want to be leaning over that guy when he goes off.

We watched the movie Lucy today. It was awesome; I heartily recommend it. I had been keeping my expectations down, because the trailers looked promising but I could see some obvious opportunities for things to go wrong (most of which did not happen) and the reviews were mixed. I now suspect that most of the people panning the movie missed 3/4 of the content and got hung up on the obvious cheese factor.  I plan to buy this at full price when it comes out on DVD.  I want to give these people my folding vote.

For those of you who do not mind explicit spoilers or have already seen it, I will discuss the awesome in more detail.

... is this.

1) DO NOT watch with your mouth full.

2) So, the cartoon part is basically canon for Terramagne. This is the kind of wicked thing that young supervillains do before they're powerful enough to rip bridges off the moorings.

Caparisoned Friesians perform with masked riders.  Wow.  

Now the Undertaker is lusting after that fancy tack.  I swear, he is a literal clothes horse.

I find it aggravating that disabled characters are almost always played by abled actors. It creates the same problem as white actors playing people of color: taking away the extremely few roles available to actors who genuinely have those traits.

This sounds fun, but I doubt I'd last ten minutes before running off to go write.

Here's an adorable Norman Rockwell-esque rendition of Captain America

This fascinating fanvid imagines The Flash in a fit of existential despair.  Yes, my speedsters have problems like these.

Lego has introduced three toy sets which interface between physical and virtual play.  Faaaaaascinating. The idea is to build something with bricks, then transfer that into a manipulable model in cyberspace.  This has terrific potential for architects, scientists, and other folks who often transport their imagination from one layer of reality to another.  I'm sure folks will figure out some practical applications for this after fooling around with it for a little while.  In the meantime, it's awesome fun.

My favorite part was the "!"  ... until I reached the underwear line.

Today for Father's Day we went to see the Loomis Circus. They're playing in Danville tomorrow too, so if you're in Central Illinois, they're worth a trip.

Casey Kasem has passed away.  I knew him as the voice of Shaggy in Scooby-Doo,  Robin in Super Friends,  and Mark in Battle of the Planets.  For a lot of us, he was an iconic voice of childhood and will be deeply missed.

 I came across this favorite song today, "The Freakin' FCC."  That's basically my opinion on censorship.
