I agree with what you said about the villains becoming a joke to a degree.
I think Hux being reduced to comic relief was too much, I wanted him to be stronger and more of a rival for Kylo. To be honest I think I would have liked it if Phasma and Hux had been merged into one character, would have made the character stronger and corrected Phasma's disappointing under-use.
I disagree about Snoke though. Snoke's death scene may be one of my favorite scenes in the entire saga. I didn't ever want Snoke to be the big bad through the entire trilogy, I always wanted that to be Kylo, so to see him take Snoke's place as Supreme Leader was good for me. I'm not sad we missed out on more Snoke detail and screen time, I think we'll get more of his story in extended canon, books, comics, etc.
The Canto Bight excursion did seem a little forced, but I think it was vital so that most of the film didn't take place during the chase. More than Canto Bight feeling a bit off though, my only other gripe was Poe's irritating insubordination. Leia taught Poe a big lesson when she literally bitch-slapped him, but there was no real pay off, we didn't see if he learned from it. Poe can either prove to us in Episode IX that he learned something, or it may just be ignored. If Poe gets no real character development in Episode IX, then it will negate a large part of The Last Jedi, that's something I'm a bit worried about.
There was a shooting at the mall my wife works at on Sunday.
She is fine, and was able to let me know she was fine right away.
It turned out to be gang related, which is only a minor comfort as at least 4 shots were fired only a handful of YARDS from where my wife was working. Idiotic teenagers.
I'm already in an emotionally unstable place, so that was an extra fun few hours spent listening to the dispatch feed and relaying info to my wife and her coworkers.
Also super proud of my wife who is getting recognition and attention for her smart and quick leadership during the whole thing.
On an absolutely related note, I'm going back to therapy for the first time in a long while.
Been a long weird week.
Apologies for the hiatus.
I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and new years celebrations.
We should be returning to a regular weekly schedule. If anyone has any requests or suggestions for themes, feel free to let me know.
Eh, thanks for calling me out. I've admittedly had a shitty time of these last few weeks, and this post had only a couple minutes of "research". It was more a quick google search looking for some examples and I only skimmed the actual article. More of a last minute post lined with guilt for being behind my planned schedule and dread knowing I probably wouldn't even bring myself to pick up my camera this week either.
Not totally weird to carry on a first date, I think. As they're probably used to carrying always. I think it's probably best to bring it up on a first date. Guns are a polarizing topic, can easily be a deal-breaker, best to bring it up early, like wanting kids or something.
Now. Did he bring it up because he was open carrying? So you could see it anyway?
Did he bring it up while it was concealed?
Did he bring it up because he new it might be a deakbreaker?
or did he bring it up because he was basically bragging about it?
If he brought it up just to tell people about it, he's an asshole.
5 beers in 2 hours, while on a first date talking about his gun.....yeah, probably an asshole.
