I might have went on livin' but I made one fatal slip, when I tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip
Is it just because I'm getting older?
the days I wait seem to simply slip away and I'm not anxious about another tomorrow
it's a weird feeling, because I've been in such a rush for so long, taking things slow wouldn't be the kind of thing I'd expect to feel good
has anyone felt this, and when did it start?
These days all I really want to talk about is how I feel and the feelings and personal lives of others, and I'm really not sure what people even talk about here.
Basically all I can do when I come here is sink back into shitty posting habits and while I don't think I really like any of you all that much, except a handful of exceptional people who are probably also the best of us in their daily lives, I am certain that none of you has even cared whether I enjoy your company, or even tried enjoying mine in some time.
I don't think I'm gonna stop posting any time soon, in fact even though I have been much less active I still log into and check the site every day, but I'm a little bit frustrated that this is all that's left of my childhood. I don't even think I knew most of you on b.net
Sorry for the blogpost, but it's been on my chest. I'd appreciate some general questions that we could have some small talk over, but as usual, ask me anything you like.
dude, x beat pregnant women
he shoulda been shot a long ass time ago
I don't give a fuck if you liked whatever garbage he put out, being a musician isn't a free pass to be a terrible person, and everybody needs to stop excusing people just because they're famous
fuck x, fuck everything he was about, and if you think he didn't deserve to die, fuck you too
or as I have taken to calling it:
Pretty Much Nothing Happens: The Video Game
seriously it starts, then Chief goes to where Cortana is, then Cortana leaves, and Chief goes to Sanghelios
I guess there's the whole thing on Meridia, and the very short war on Sanghelios, but none of the characters in that portion of the game felt important, and the conflict all felt manufactured and auxiliary to the plot
characters who could've been great like Governor Sloan and Exuberant Witness felt like they were shoved in at the last second, and were completely flat as characters
Sloan's betrayal didn't even feel moderately as close to game changing as Guilty Spark's, and Exuberant Witness pretty much only existed to open doors
even the Arbiter was boring
where we should see his triumphant charge to finally break his people of the old ways, and become a beacon of hope for the future of Sanghelios, we more see him getting his butt kicked then he gets saved by the Spartans and that's pretty much it
what made him work in Halo 2 was his pain and his failure, and the second chance he knew he didn't deserve, and watching that turn slowly into revelation that his failure was not only inevitable, but also that his task only served to perpetuate a lie that kept his people enslaved
Halo 5 could have been the culmination of that, but instead it got breezed over as an subplot that's only kinda there if you look for it
I'm grossly disappointed

Anything will do.
Predictions for either part.
I think Tony will lose an arm, but frankly I don't know who, if anyone, will die.
Vision is too new a character to be killed off, I think the removal of the mind stone will just turn him off temporarily or weaken him significantly.
Thor just became king of Asgard, so he's not going anywhere. I do think he'll reforge Mjolnir tho.
Some support character(s) will probably die, and nobody will probably care. Not everyone is a Phil Coulson. Maybe Fury will actually die?
In a word, I think it's going to be bloated, but doubt there's going to be a scene where they all face Thanos at once like the standoff in Civil War. Pacing will inevitably be an issue as we jump around trying to follow multiple character threads,but I hope this will be remedied by focusing mainly on the core cast of the original six Avengers, or better yet just Cap, Tony, Bruce, and Thor.
In the second part it would be great to see that focus shift to be mainly on Dr. Strange, Spider-Man, Black Panther, Vision, and Scarlet Witch, possibly with a little less Scarlet Witch. I really don't think her character is strong enough to be a spotlight hero, and I kind of imagine her satisfying Black Widow's current role, as a support character who shows up in a bunch of other people's movies.
I don't expect the film to be visually enticing from a cinematic perspective, instead I expect it to rely heavily on special effects to create visual spectacles that will be, while memorable, not necessarily breathtaking or emotion inducing. Trent Opaloch has a pretty distinct style which shows impossible fantasies against very raw (and sometimes bleak) camerawork.
Anyone else have thoughts on it?
Could Earth-616, which has been Marvel's main Universe since the first appearance of Namor the Submariner in 1939, be ending?
There aren't a lot of details about Marvel's fresh start yet, so it's too early to say if this will mark the end of their Prime Universe, but I'm not sure if that would be a bad thing.
DC has been accused of overusing the total reboot, but considering how potent it was at the end of Crisis, and how long overdue Marvel is having never done one, it just might be time for them.
