Hey Mouse, how you been?
Good, good. Great actually. After last year’s unpleasantness I feel like I’ve rebounded in a big way. I’m feeling a lot more confident and hopeful for the future, been writing loads and, long story short it’s good to be Mouse (for now).
Aw, that’s great. Well, see ya…
Not so fast, my bold-faced friend. This is the part where I use you as a sounding board to tell the readers all my news.
Aw c’mon, dude, it’s like half five in the morning, I got work tomorrow…
Here is my news!
Yes! So, with the Homecoming review now gone up and Ragnarok not out on DVD until February, seems like this is a good time to put up a page where I rank all the Marvel movies like I have with the canon Disney films. Gasp in wonder and ooh and aah and say “But I really liked Doctor Strange” and “Thor is HOW HIGH? This dude’s crazy!”. Basically, your thoughts are an open book to me. Speaking of…
New series of reviews
Hmm…so we’ve reached the end of the canon Disney movies and we’re almost at the end of the MCU movies. What to review next? It has to be something with a lot of variety. I don’t want to be constantly praising or panning week in, week out. It has to be a series that wakes up each morning and flips a scarred two-headed coin to decide whether its going to suck like it was built by Dyson, or be literally Oscar worthy…
So, we’ve finally wrapped our series of reviews of WW2 propaganda shorts (spoilers, the good guys won. For about seventy years. Now it’s a little up in the air.) If you missed them, the reviews are here:
Hope you enjoyed them, and if you have suggestions or preferences for another series of short reviews, holla atta mazerunner.
12 Gigs in 12 Months
So I’ve decided to go back to doing stand up and I’ve set myself a challenge for 2018: 12 gigs in 12 months. Gig #1 is already in the bag (it was at Cherry Comedy, no footage I’m afraid) and #2 is in the Ha’penny Inn on Wellington Quay on Tuesday 20th January at nine if you’re in Dublin. If you’re not, do please head over to Facebook and follow Neil Sharpson-12 Gigs in 12 Months where I’ll be posting updates and footage of how I get on.
League of Volunteers returns!
Yes really! The final issue of my run on League of Volunteers will finally be hitting the stands soon. Sorry about the slight (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA) delay but, for real, our artists kept getting poached to do things like Justice League, Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Anyway, it’ll be worth the wait, I promise. In the meantime, check out this bloody amazing artwork by John McFarlane.
Are you watching Sharuf? You would be watching Sharuf. We’re about to kick off a major new plotline next week, so head over to YouTube and give us a sub and a like.
Okay, I think that’s everything.
Oh, and in case anyone is wondering if anti-depressants work? Yah, they work.
