Why We Can’t Have Nice Things…and Why Sometimes, We Can

I was putting off Last Jedi spoiler talk because Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency didn't get renewed for a third season.

I'm truly going to miss this show. It was a rare case of a series that kept me completely guessing and constantly surprised in every episode.

Star Wars- At Last Jedi!

No spoilers in this review.

As surely as I’ll need to see the movie again in theaters, it’s going to take me more than one post to get talking about it out of my system.

The coolest part about Star Wars: The Last Jedi was that it appealed equally to my inner seven year old that remembers seeing the original back in 1977, and the adult who understands story, character and consequences today.

2017 Holiday Parade Festivities

Welcome to the 2017 Psycho Pirate’s “I Wish I Was in Jeff’s Village” Action Figure and Hess Truck Extravaganza! Coming to you Live (ish) from Anabelle’s Really Cool Traditional Christmas Village; hosted by yours truly, Anabelle McGinley.

[Note from Jeff- For the full effect, imagine Anabelle reading her composition in a, and I quote, "schnazzy announcer voice."  Back to you kiddo.]

Now as I’m sure you know, this year’s “Jeff’s G.I. Joe Village” brought the Justice League and their DC buddies to the plateau. However, not all the heroes (or villains) made the cut. So the second, now annual, Christmas Parade is centered around the DCU characters tragically declined a moment in the sun. I tried desperately to get my father to allow them to join, but to no avail.

Christmas Village 2017

A Real Truth, Justice and American Hero
A Ruthless, Superstitious and Cowardly Terrorist Lot

Last year, with the help of the crew of the USS Enterprise, and mythological creatures from the Omicron Delta System (The famous Shore Leave Planet), the Joes looked to be heading for an easy victory.

Unfortunately, when the Federation team was summoned back through the wormhole, without Spock’s Vulcan telepathy and the unspecified powers of the Mule with a Hat in the loop  to control the robotic creatures, Cobra scientist Doctor Mindbender was able to modify Doctor Venom’s Brainwave Scanner to command the monsters, inflict heavy damage and sweep the G. I. Joe force off the plateau.  Disconnected from their home dimension’s power source the beasts eventually shut down, but not before leading to a staggering Cobra victory.  The terrorist forces were poised to deliver one final and crushing blow to the Joes.

In other news, I believe I am still over thinking reasons for why one group or the other is on top of the table each year.
