On Saturday November 7, numerous news outlets projected that former Vice President Joe Biden won the 2020 Election by defeating incumbent President Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States. He won over 74 million votes, which is a new record for the most votes, more any other president. Biden is also the oldest to win the presidency at the age of 77. He will be 78 years old when he’ll be inaugurated on January 20, 2021. In 1972, Biden was the sixth youngest senator in American history to be elected to the U.S. Senate at 29 years old. Former California Senator Kamala Harris also made history by being the first woman and the first woman of color to be chosen as Vice President.
I dedicate this review to the die-hard Deadpool fans out there. Our favorite foul-mouthed anti-hero never fails to disappoint us. Deadpool’s Head from Marvel Legends and Hasbro is the toy that’ll be worth your while and money. This was released back in late August and it first peaked my interest when PaulStarHero, a cosplayer from the UK, tried it out. It was fascinating and wanted to purchase one for myself. Two weeks later, I bought Deadpool’s Head online from Best Buy. The retail price of it was $99.99. It’s a bit pricey, but it’s not too bad for a toy that costs under $100. That is, if your wallet can afford it. With the COVID-19 pandemic still being present, you definitely need a friend who will keep you company during these stressful and trying times.
With about three weeks left until Election Day, it’s important that we vote for politicians who will fight for equal rights for all people, including the LGBTQ+ community. Since coming out as gay in February 2012, supporting the rights for all gay and lesbian people was something that I was passionate about. Three years later, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that marriage equality was the law of the land. It was a historic day and victory for everyone in the LGBTQ+ community.
On this day in 2019, the Sega Genesis Mini was released worldwide. It had 42 pre-installed games and I’ve beaten a couple of those games so far this year. It’s been over three months since I’ve had this game system. It’s unknown how many units the Sega Genesis Mini had sold. The two games that I’ve completed were Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master. It took me almost 30 years to beat both of those games. However, there were some amazing Sega Genesis games I wish were added on to this console, which I’ll get to towards the end of the story. Four months ago, I did do a review on Sonic the Hedgehog 2. I’m going to share my review of Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master and add it to this story.
In the month of August, there have been two important wins regarding the LGBTQ+ community in the news. That’s why I urge everyone to vote by either by mail or at the polls. No one should choose between making their voices heard and risking their own health. Three months ago, the Supreme Court ruled that lesbian, gay, and transgender people are protected from workplace discrimination under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Here’s a date for everyone to remember: November 4. Why is that day important, you ask? It’s because the day after the presidential election is over, the Supreme Court will decide if a Catholic agency based out of Pennsylvania can reject same-sex parents from adopting children. Here are a couple of recent news stories you might have not been aware of.
Greetings, true believers! The last time I reviewed a Spider-Man suit was about a year ago. It was my Captain Spidey suit from Zentaizone. Unfortunately, back in late March, it was stolen. It was in one of my backpacks and all of a sudden, a thief or thieves swiped it off a bench while I was charging my phone outside of a Walmart, just feet away, on a bench. I should’ve taken my bag with me and smart enough not to leave it unattended. It was devastating and wondered if I would ever have the courage to be Spider-Man again.
