Darling, You Look Marvel‑ous

I 70-346 exam questions hurried Learnguidepdf into the local department store to grab1 Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test some last minute Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people and Learnguidepdf grumbled2 70-486 PDF to myself. I would be in here forever and I just 70-346 exam questions had so much to Testprepwell do. Chirsmas was Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test beginning to become such a drag. I kinda wished that I could just 70-486 PDF sleep through Chirsmas. But I hurried the Cisco 300-070 pdf best I could through all the Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test people to the toy department. 70-486 PDF Once again I kind of mumbled3 Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test to myself at the prices of all these toys, and 70-486 PDF wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test of 70-346 exam questions the corner of my eye I saw Testprepwell a little boy about Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test 70-346 exam questions 5 holding a lovely doll.He kept 70-480 70-480 study guide touching6 her hair and he held Cisco 300-070 pdf her so Learnguidepdf gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just kept loking over 70-480 70-480 study guide at the little boy Testprepwell and wondered who the doll was for. I watched him turn to a woman and Cisco 300-070 pdf he called his aunt by name and said, “Are you sure I 70-346 exam questions don’t have enough 70-346 exam questions money?” She replied a bit 70-486 PDF impatiently, “You know that you don’t have enough money Testprepwell for it.” The 70-480 70-480 study guide aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that 70-346 exam questions she had to go and get some other things and Learnguidepdf would be back in a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy Testprepwell 70-480 70-480 study guide continued to hold 70-486 PDF the doll. After a bit I asked 70-346 exam questions the boy who the doll was for. He said, “It is the doll Cisco 300-070 pdf my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring Cisco 300-070 pdf Learnguidepdf it. “I told him that maybe Santa was Learnguidepdf going Cisco 300-070 pdf to bring it . He said, “No, Santa can’t go Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test where my sister is…. I have to 70-480 70-480 study guide give Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test the doll Learnguidepdf to Testprepwell Testprepwell my Mama to take to her. “I asked Cisco 300-070 pdf Learnguidepdf him where his Learnguidepdf siter was. He looked at me Testprepwell with the saddest eyes Learnguidepdf and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus.

My Daddy says that Mamma is going to have 70-480 70-480 study guide to go be with her.” My heart nearly stopped 70-346 exam questions beating. Then the boy looked at me Cisco 300-070 pdf again and said, 70-480 70-480 study guide “I told my Daddy 70-486 PDF to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to tell her 70-486 PDF to wait till I got back from the store.” Then he asked me if i 70-346 exam questions wanted to see his picture. I 70-480 70-480 study guide told him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d had taken at the front of the store. He said, “I want my Cisco 300-070 pdf Mama to take 70-346 exam questions this with Testprepwell her so the Learnguidepdf dosen’t ever forget me. I love my Mama so very much and I wish she dind not have to leave 70-486 PDF me.But Daddy says she will need to be with my sister.” I saw that the little boy had lowered his head 70-480 70-480 study guide and had Cisco 300-070 pdf grown 70-346 exam questions so qiuet. While he was not looking I reached into my purse and pilled out a handful 70-480 70-480 study guide of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we count that miney 70-486 PDF one more time?” He grew Testprepwell excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money in with 70-346 exam questions his and we began to count it . Of course it was plenty for the Learnguidepdf doll. He softly said, “Thank Cisco 300-070 pdf you Jesus Cisco 300-070 pdf for giving me enough money.” 70-480 70-480 study guide Then 70-486 PDF the Testprepwell boy 70-486 PDF said, “I just asked Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama can take it with her to 70-480 70-480 study guide Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test give my Testprepwell sister. And he heard 70-346 exam questions my prayer. I wanted to ask him give for enough to buy my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t ask him, but he gave me enough to buy the doll and a rose for Testprepwell my Mama. She loves white Testprepwell rose so much. 70-480 70-480 study guide “In a Cisco 300-070 pdf few minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled Testprepwell my cart 70-486 PDF away. I could not keep from thinking about the Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test little boy as Testprepwell I 70-346 exam questions finished my shoppong in a ttally different spirit Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test than when I had 70-346 exam questions started. And I kept remembering a Learnguidepdf story I had seen in Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test the newspaper several 70-480 70-480 study guide days earlier about a drunk driver hitting a car and killing7 a Learnguidepdf little girl and the Mother was Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test in serious condition. The family was Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test deciding on whether to remove the life support. Now surely this little boy did not belong with that story.Two days later I Microsoft 70-347 Practice Test read in the paper where 70-486 PDF the family had disconnected Cisco 300-070 pdf the life support and the young woman had died. I 70-486 PDF could 70-480 70-480 study guide not forget the little boy 70-480 70-480 study guide and just kept wondering if the two Cisco 300-070 pdf were somehow connected. Later 70-486 PDF that day, I could not help Learnguidepdf myself and I went out Cisco 300-070 pdf and bought aome white roses and took them to the funeral home where the yough woman was .And there she Learnguidepdf was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

THE WEEK FROM MY VIEW | REVIEW

by Eric J Baker

So I’m sitting there for the first hour of The Avengers thinking, “Where the fuck is Patrick Macnee?” Then the Incredible Hulk showed up and I was like, “Ah… it’s those Avengers.” I ought to pay closer attention to the marketing for these things.

Hemsworth and Evans: Let the slash fiction begin.

Director Joss Whedon’s all-star, $220-million superhero mash-up opened this weekend to surprisingly good reviews for a summer popcorn movie, and has shattered all records with a $200-million-plus opening weekend to bring its global cume to close to $650 million in only twelve days.  In other words, it’ll be profitable, but never officially—Disney’s previous bomb John Carter will see to that.

The plot is barely relevant beyond the concept: S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) must assemble the world’s greatest superheroes – Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye – to save the Earth from an intergalactic assault led by Thor’s brother Loki.

Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Chris Hemsworth reprise their respective roles from Marvel’s existing franchises, with Mark Ruffalo taking over as The Hulk and doing well in limited screen time. Scarlett Johansson is slightly out of place as former Russian spy Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow, a character better suited to a James Bond film, but Jeremy Renner manages to make the dull character Hawkeye enjoyable, mostly through well-timed grins and winks that probably aren’t in the script. Gwyneth Paltrow pops in a few times as Iron man’s girlfriend, perhaps to make the audience go, “Holy shit. There are a lot of famous people in this movie.”

Scarlett’s superpower: Looking hot in any hair color.

The middle act, with the gathering of the superheroes and the inevitable but temporary defeat at the hands of the bad guys, is the best part. The banter between the characters is fun and invites my inner geek to declare, “Iron Man and Captain America and Thor on screen at the same time! Oops. I need to change my shorts.”

The final battle, which lasts longer than most entire films, is so similar to the end of the third Transformers movie that I can’t believe no one got sued. The Avengers’ biomechanical villains even look like the other franchise’s baddies, The Decepticons. Though the sequence would benefit from being trimmed by a few minutes, Whedon does a remarkable job of giving every star equal screen time and copious hero shots.

Just another shirtless hunk…I mean Hulk, on PFC.

The flaw of most summer action blockbusters is their melodramatic, one-note villains. The Avengers does not avoid this pitfall, which kept the film from being great. Tom Hiddleston is a good actor and performs the role of Loki well, but this bad guy is interchangeable with Red Skull in Captain America and Ares in Wrath of the Titans. God, where is Alan Rickman when you need him?

Eric rates Marvel’s The Avengers as

Topless Amanda Seyfried has been responsible for so many clicks on this blog that her breasts should really be featured on our About Us page, somewhere above occasional contributor Chris Cramer’s picture and very close to my face. Yup. Amanda’s breasts next to my face. Are you still talking about our About Us page? I’m not.

Despite the fact that unfamous women’s boobs are often as nice as those of famous ones, and that the waitress at their local Hooters may be similarly equipped and certainly more accessible than Amanda Seyfried, people click here in droves to look at the occasional topless shot we’ve posted of the actress from her pseudo-racy romantic-suspense film Chloe that nobody watched a couple years ago.

Now, in what could be the most fortuitous bit of casting to ever strike Pure Film Creative, Seyfried will be playing former porn queen Linda Lovelace in the not-at-all exploitative and totally necessary upcoming biopic. Judging from the one-sheet teaser poster released this week, Amanda will be rapidly driving us toward the million-click mark in short order. So, to the pervert out there who, sometime in the months ahead, will be posting screenshots of our lovely benefactor in the buff (which we will then swipe and repost)… Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.

Thursday was the National Day of Prayer, an event held annually since 1952 in which people all across the country give God a headache by talking to him simultaneously. In unrelated news, an astounding 50 million people won the lottery on Friday.

Actually, the world is still pretty much the same fucked-up place it was before everybody prayed, which should give a few folks out there an epiphany. As a nonbeliever, I do not feel as if my civil rights have been trodden upon, probably because I live in Leftyville, New Jersey where church is for old ladies with blue hair. My idea of separating church and state involves keeping religious entities away from public policy discussions and legislation. If people want to bow their heads, close their eyes, and bounce thoughts around their skulls for a few minutes every May 3, go for it. I don’t mind the quiet.

Hey. How did another shot of Johansson get here?

Meanwhile, the atheists held a counter event on Thursday called National Day of Reason, during which people were invited to trade religious texts for books on evolution and so forth. This is fine, although I’m pretty sure they are unpreaching to the non-choir.

I wish atheists would choose their battles more wisely, though. I’m concerned with the inundation of lawsuits, particularly the recent one threatened by The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) against a Rhode Island firehouse for displaying a nearly 100-year-old memorial topped with a cross, which nobody knew or cared about a week ago. Good rules for life: Never kick a puppy or bully a small-town firehouse.

As with the animal rights activist who throws paint on a woman in a fur coat or the Star Wars nerd who blogs that the prequels are better than the originals, some acts of protest alienate more folks than they enlighten and tend to rally people against their cause. Perhaps, on a technicality, the memorial is unconstitutional, but a large segment of our judiciary has given up ruling on the basis of law when it comes to public policy anyway. More importantly, it makes the FFRF kind of look like assholes.

I guess we gotta put a relevant in here somewhere. Say hello to Dan Barker.

I admire the organization’s co-president Dan Barker a lot. His book, Godless, which tells about his deconversion from an evangelical preacher to an atheist, is at once hilarious, earthy, and empowering. But I wish he’d take a more subversive approach to making his point. Say, for example, making a plaque espousing Islam’s five pillars of faith and setting it up at a local courthouse in Texas or Iowa, right next to the Ten Commandments. Then sue the town when they try to remove it. That might raise thoughts instead of hackles.

A few months ago I wrote about NBC’s The Voice as an improvement upon American Idol. I’ve tried to stick with that opinion and with the show itself, but after weeks of blind auditions, battle rounds, and frequent eliminations (What? I drink a lot of tea), I can’t take it anymore. It’s still better than American Idol, but so is my TV when it’s turned off.

The green shoe means Chris Mann is hip and irreverent. Right?

I’m old so I can say this: No one over 25 should be allowed on this show, because if you haven’t become a pop star by then, you aren’t going to. This week we learned that that the four finalists are a career back-up singer with no personality, an ex-child actor in his thirties with a grating personality, a sort-of opera singer with a robot’s personality, and a gravelly voiced chick who sounds like recycled Bonnie Tyler and has had something like four records deals fall through in the past. I hope the opera guy, Chris Mann, wins, because a niche market exists for crooners singing Andrew Lloyd Webbery popera, and he can sing. The rest of them are simply hype, and the coaches/judges are leading the hyperbolic charge.

Coach Adam Levine has told at least 7 or 8 contestants that they’re “the one to beat” and that “this is only the beginning,” when he knows that most are doomed to return to obscurity. A few weeks ago, Cee Lo Green said to off-key wailer Chessa, whom he had to repeatedly save from elimination, that she was the power vocalist of her generation. I howled with laughter (in my mind). Her pitch is so flat it’s a cartoon character.

Nuttiest of all was Blake Shelton saying to mediocre belter Erin Willet on Monday, “I wish I had one tenth of your talent.” Good grief, Blake. The Voice is nothing but high-stakes karaoke. America has countless Erin Willets who can passably holler out an Adele song. Meanwhile, you are a multiplatinum singer and writer of hit songs with a massive following, not to mention a true country western voice. Humble is good until it becomes parody.

Our Schizo of the Week is none other than New Jersey’s own Patricia Krentcil, who made news this week for (allegedly) taking her kindergartener to a tanning salon.

Dear news media, have you ever heard the expression “Can’t see the forest for the trees”? It means the news story here is not whether the lady put her kid in a tanning booth. The news story is that this lady is a fucking freak. Did you see her face? We, your faithful public, sure did. What you should be investigating is, “How in the hell is this woman not dead?”

The only time my home state gets in the news is when he new season of Jersey Shore starts, when our belligerent governor goes Tony Soprano on somebody’s ass yet again, or when some walking corpse puts on her metaphorical clown shoes and goes out in public. Who knows? Maybe Ms. Krentcil is vying to be cast as Red Skull’s mother in the Captain America sequel.

Jersey Represent!

    I clicked to look at the enlarged image of the stats for the search phrases. I cannot believe that “small dick,” out ranks “large penis.”
    In your face Baker. I win.

      Sush! You shouldn’t say that even in jest on a gay website, Bryan! We’ll lose all credibility.

    I’m with you on The Avengers, as you’ll see in my comment on it tonight. I got home from a five-hour ordeal at Universal CityWalk with Scott and his crutches to see it on Sunday and found that you’d beat me to the punch. So I wrote about it anyway, but from a different angle.
    Also, just saw The Voice for the first time in a few weeks and I think I was surprised by who made the finals. Hmmm.

      With The Voice, it seems like the coaches wanted to keep the hard-luck cases around and got rid of the people who actually had a chance of selling some albums. Seriously, Jermain Paul seems like a nice, bland family man, but he isn’t that great of a singer (no one talks about how he goes flat or his voice breaks up every time he tries to hit a high note) and is about as marketable as a corded phone.

      Thank you for reading and commenting!
