We pulled 11 hours Monday night and I was barely aware enough to function yesterday and totally spaced out the TV-talk post, so here's the gist: The MasterChef Jr. finale was last night. It's on the DVR. I'll get around to watching it soon, but I'm not impressed with either of the finalists. Abby should have made the finale, she came out on top a few weeks ago with only TWO fucking ingredients, are you kidding me? Yes, she screwed up last week, but come ON, man, won the night (okay, she was #2 that night, but still) on TWO ingredients? That has to count for something. And at only 8 years old!!!
But today is Wednesday, and that means new comic day. Here's what came out for the Moores:
And since we're still on comics, I finished American Born Chinese last night and today will start:
Imagine a universe where the Nazis schemed another layer to their madness--using human sacrifice and necromancy to invoke bloody "gods". Picture a world where technology has been trumped by magic and the human race has literally become the food of the Gods.
It is a world in which Eisenhower's troops, wading ashore at Normandy to put down history's worst evil, are met by towering beings who stir cyclones, hurl lightning, and laugh in the face of any opposition short of an atomic bomb.
But can such creatures actually exist? Are they really the living embodiment of Norse mythology, alien invaders...or something else?
Either way, it was still D-day. D for disaster. For doom.
But, with the help of the rogue god Loki, one man would fight back, and in doing so discover the horrible secret of the Aesir. This selfless act of unbridled bravery and sacrifice will inspire a people and perhaps alter the course of history.
It's a time for heroes. Armed not with superpowers, but courage.
