Got an awesome package in the mail today from @wyattthenerd. Dude, this rules. So hard. Thank you!
People continue to astound me.
So Paul Walker, of “The Fast and the Furious” franchise fame, died in a car wreck Saturday. In typical fashion, the Internet is split between the normal, expected camps of “OMG RIP” and ” OMG WHO CARES”, with a majority of people in the middle.
I’ve noticed a very interesting trend with many people in the “WHO CARES” camp; that a majority of the same people that belong in that camp are some of the same people who wailed and gnashed their teeth when Lou Reed died. Or Tom Clancy. Or Chris Kyle. Or somebody else that, frankly, many others don’t give two squats about.
People, just because you don’t care doesn’t mean others shouldn’t. By all accounts, Paul Walker was a good guy who left a daughter behind. Did he make high-quality films? Not particularly, but they were highly successful and, in many instances, entertaining.
And I liked him.
Does that make him more important than the previous people listed? Of course not. But to sit and belittle someone who has JUST died because you didn’t care about their career choice or contribution to the world or pop culture or whatever makes you a bad person.Unless of course they were horrible people like Sylvia Brown. In that case, belittle away.
In short, don’t be a jackwagon. It doesn’t look good on you.
On a side note, please quit saying things like “WHY DO YOU CARE ABOUT (CELEBRITY NAME HERE) AND NOT ABORTED BABIES AND/OR SOLDIERS”. Just stop. It’s a red herring.
Bought a “holy grail” book of mine from eBay last week. Got my book in today. The seller was nice enough to include Marvel Tales 227 for free.
Found my “Mostly Zombies 2” sketchbook from/signed by Arthur Suydam. Looking to sell, if anyone is interested…
Finally, Daredevil 10. Love this cover, also, Mole Man…
Got my hands on Daredevil 12, first Chris Samnee issue, I do believe….
