Go Darke

Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it

Fundamental Joeyism

Bent out of shape

In some ways I am quite predictable. You could likely surmise, probably correctly, that I prefer Deadpool and Lobo over… say, more mainstream superheros. Superman for example. Or even Spiderman (although I really enjoyed Into the Spider-verse, despite its stupid title). I like my heroes broken and flawed… but with just a skidmark of redeemability. Hmm. Pretty sure redeemability is a word! Why are you underlined in red you hate filled processor? Hmm okay… apparently not a real word. I stand corrected. Sure glad that wasn’t the hill I was prepared to die on…


In any event (before I get sidetracked) there is a #$%! framed picture of Karl Marx on the stairs at 1407 Graymalkin Lane, Westchester, New York!

Oh my god. The (good) X-men are communists? How to mess up my whole entire day/month/year/life!

*Joey paces his round his office in an manner that might suggest he is irked*

Wait… does this mean Karl Marx was a mutant?

I wonder what his powers were?

Having read Das Kaptial[1], I feel safe saying it definitely wasn’t writing short and punchy chapters. Definitely in my top ten reads for the insomniac and the mitigation of this condition through ennui. Along with the The History of the Peloponnesian War[2]… which is likely the toughest book I’ve ever attempted. Just thinking about it, makes me all anxious and reaching for a Xanax…

[1]I use the term ‘read’ quite loosely. I got about halfway.

[2]Probably… a third of the way through, before I finally admitted that I had no idea what was going on…

Both of these weighty tomes could have been greatly improved with pictures. And maybe speech bubbles. And onomatopoeia! Onomatopoeia makes everything better!
