Stars Doing Bathroom Selfies

WHY? I don’t get it. I saw this one by Jennifer Lopez this morning, in a news article covering it (again… WHY? Why is the news covering stars doing bathroom selfies)??? Don’t get me wrong here either, I have a lot respect for Jennifer Lopez. She works her ass off (and it stays on just fine :)) so she deserves all the glory. However… I just don’t get why stars take these pictures and then post them out to the world? As a matter of fact… Why does anyone post bathroom selfies??? It doesn’t even have to be stars. People… You do know that virtually EVERY phone has a front facing camera lens on it… right??? Just stop with the tacky bathroom selfies already!!! And news media… this isn’t news!!!

Superman is like Coke Classic

With Action Comics #1000 Superman is whole again. By that, I mean that he has the classic and timeless suit with the red shorts and normal look, back again. Gone is the “armor-like” look and the all blue tights (thankfully). Look… you people that think the red shorts should disappear… You’re idiots. You’re like the people who once claimed that New Coke was better than Classic Coke. In other words you were just WRONG. Same thing here. Don’t like it? Oh well… go cry in a corner somewhere you wussies.

The Level of Tracking of YOUR Personal Info is Terrifying

The article found (HERE) is a long read but worth it. If you think you are not being tracked, or only being tracked by social networking, think again. Somewhere, there is a full dossier on YOU. This company Palantir, or one like it, probably compiled it. The TV show Person of Interest pretty much told everyone that this was coming.

It’s a slow thought day… So that’s your Streamline for the day!!!

New Comic Book Reviews for the Week of 4/18/18

Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe (#4 or 4) (Valiant)

The final issue that is the companion to the coming web series (to be released in just a few days) is here, and what an action packed conclusion it is!!! If the web series follows this is 4 issue mini series and looks good, then I will be more than happy to see the Valiant world on screen, even if it is the small, small, screen. I have to say, I love the art in this mini series and I actually like Ninjak’s costume better here than in his main series. It really comes off as being very tech ninja, which is what Ninjak is all about. So check this series out and get ready for the web series coming in just a few days!!!

Superman SALE on Comixology

There wasn’t any other new releases in my subscriptions this week so I’d like to point out that Comixology has a massive Superman sale going on in honor of his 80 years. While I already have the physical copies of the Death, Reign, and Return of Superman, I couldn’t resist picking these up again along with some other stuff, like the excellent Birthright and All-Star Superman. So if you like Superman or just want to revisit stuff you had before, now’s an excellent time to stock up on the digital side.

If you had the power of Superman, would you be Good or Bad?

 I was just thinking about this today. If you had the extreme powers of Superman would you use them for good or for evil?

 I’ve got to say….power corrupts and ultimate power will ultimately corrupt and I would be so corrupted it would not even be funny. Seriously…the world would be bowing to me and I would take that title of Emperor of the world. I mean…really…there would be no one to stand in my way and even if there was I could pretty much end them quite easily. Heat vision, freezing cold breath, a good uppercut…

 I’d have a state of the art castle built on every continent…forget that whole ice sculpture fortress of solitude stuff; I’d be living in style. The suit would be out too… I’d have to have something in a menacing black to strike some fear into the hearts of the little people.

There wouldn’t be any wars because there wouldn’t be anyone else taking my power from me…so I’d be a benevolent dictator… maybe… maybe not… The world could be run in a very Libertarian and free market kind of way except for in instances where I want what I want…then its dictator time!!!!
I mean….if you have the power you might as well use it…
