    20 Books of 2020 (Pt.15)

    As we approach Part 15, I would like to thank everyone who has been continuing to support me throughout this. That means everyone reading this right now and all the people on Instagram who are thoroughly convinced that I am an AI and not a human. I hope you think I’m human, because I am. Part 15 is a very special part because well, it’s five away from 20 and when we reach 20, we reach another round number. This is very close to my heart and it’s far better that I share them like this rather than doing one big list at the end of the year (oh god, do you remember when we tried that in 2019 and it definitely didn’t work? Well, yeah - that’s how it goes when I do that…) What I wanted to talk about today though was what I’m planning to read more of as the year goes on. Let’s have a short look at it…

    My Top Ten Favourite Authors of the 20th Century

    My Top Ten Favourite Authors of the 20th Century

    I love 20th Century Writing because there is so much rich history all over the changing world at this time. From the beginning of the 20th century in which we have World War One all the way to the fall of the Berlin Wall - from the rise of Hitler all the way to the March on Washington. There are so many different aspects of life to explore in the changing of different cultures throughout the 20th century.

    The Wonder of Circus

    The Wonder of Circus

    As a child, our sense of adventure is unhindered by fear. Do you remember the feeling of the wind whooshing over you as you were pushed on the swings? Rolling down hills and landing in a giggling heap at the bottom? Jumping, cartwheeling, and climbing trees? Life as an adult leaves little time for these small joys. Over time we gain trepidation over new experiences, fear of getting hurt, of looking silly. Day to day stress prevents us from taking time to just enjoy the world around us. If you had asked me two years ago the last time I had felt a childlike sense of freedom, I wouldn’t have had an answer for you. But I’ve found a place that lets me feel that exhilaration — along with accomplishment, inspiration, and community. It’s the Circus.

    Batman's 1st Year Body Count

    Batman's 1st Year Body Count

    Die-hard fans know of Batman's stringent no kill rule. Time and time again you will hear fans quick to mention this, when skeptics ask why doesn't Batman just kill the Joker. They are vocal with the films as well, when Batman kills under the likes of Tim Burton and Zack Snyder. Christopher Nolan reassures these same fans when Batman asserts that he will not take a life. However, Batman was not originally born with this moralistic view of not killing his enemies. Believe it or not, in his first year of publication of Year One as some Bat-fans may want to call it, he has something of a lucrative body count.

    Remember The Original Catwoman?

    Remember The Original Catwoman?

    Everyone remembers the first time they saw Catwoman. The baby boomers most likely remember Julie Newmar or Eartha Kitt from the sixties Batman television show. Later on, their kids probably remember Michelle Pfieffer’s from Batman Returns or her incarnation in Batman: The Animated Series. Today's generation may think of Anne Hathaway from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. All of these make up the general, mainstream depiction of Catwoman...at least outside of the comics. We can discuss all of the differences with these various depictions of Catwoman. Yet, we can all agree on their base, surface level similarities of a costumed attire, athletic prowess and ableness to go toe-to-toe with the Batman. What if in her first ever story Catwoman was nothing like that? Oddly, it is true but do not let that detract you.

The Avengers, SHIELD, The Sinister Six, the X-Men, X-Force, all teams that are well known within the Marvel comic book universe.

    The change in the Cosplay community

    The change in the Cosplay community

    In 2007 when I got into this hobby, I was excited to enjoy a hobby that more then playing dress up, for the next ten years it would serve as something that helped me get out of my comfort zone, go to new places, make new friends, and become an important factor in keeping me busy through the rough times. But in the past years, I've noticed some dramatic changes to happen, that has made me retract from the community year by year. I still enjoy the costumes, and the transformation into a character, but the dramatics of the other individuals. I can't abide by it, nor endorse it. I've just continued to distance myself even though I miss the groups, and gatherings. I miss being able to ask a friend of mine what character they were going to dress up as for the convention weekend. Now I've not only grown apart from it, I've purposely limited my interactions and involvements. It's not just me that has noticed this, many individuals have experienced harsh toxicity in various cosplay groups. Why did a fun hobby turn hellish and more dramatic then a talk show? Now before I go on, an important disclaimer: this does not mean every cosplayer is toxic, heavens no. I personally know some amazing, humble, and kind people that are in the community that I am still close with. But there are some that have changed that I have witnessed first hand as well as some of my friends that have unfortunately experienced this change.

    Texxx-Man Cosplay’s Favorite People

    The one thing that’s currently on everyone’s mind is the Coronavirus outbreak. While the number of cases and deaths are steadily increasing, people, businesses, restaurants, and even movie theaters are taking precautions of minimizing large crowds. Besides me being a content creator for Vocal, I have a regular eight to five job. I’m going to be taking time off from there for the next couple of weeks. I’m also temporarily putting cosplayer interviews on hold, out of consideration for those who might be feeling ill from COVID-19. I’m still going to write articles, but not doing cosplayer interviews at this time.

    Is Bojack Horseman an allegory of Tennessee Williams?

    Is Bojack Horseman an allegory of Tennessee Williams?

    Though much of the satire throughout the series can easily be traced back to real life (for example, Mr Peanutbutter's campaign for governor being a parody of Trump's presidential run), a perhaps more subtle yet still remarkably clear allegory throughout the show's existence is the striking similarities between Bojack Horseman and the life and works of Tennessee Williams.

    The President and the Pin Up

    The President and the Pin Up

    When the name Marilyn Monroe is mentioned, two images are likely to come to mind; the skirt blowing scene of Billy Wilder's Seven Year Itch (1955), or the infamously breathy rendition of 'Happy Birthday' sung to John F Kennedy by Monroe in 1961. Both pop culture moments capture the image often associated with Marilyn; that of a beautiful, flirtatious woman who oozes sex appeal and knows how to use it. This image, though indicative of the Golden Age of Hollywood and the bombshells who thrived in it, is only a small part of the complex character Monroe was, and has largely damaged her reputation.

    Get Off Your Duff Reading List: Coronavirus Edition

    I think I speak for most of us when I say... I am losing my damn mind! This whole social distancing, self-quarantining, stay at home lifestyle is taking its toll on my sanity. I happen to be part of the population not laid off, but also not occupied by work (it's not exactly legal to take aquarium animals home with you during a pandemic) and thus I am part of the population that has found themselves at home with heaps of free time. And there's only so many crafts one can make or things one can clean before the mind starts to unravel. So I've been doing a lot of reading to stave off the boredom. It's great! I'm learning new things, being entertained and inspired, and when I get jittery I can walk laps around the downstairs without having to press pause.

It’s kind of funny that in a country which still believes in the principles of arranged marriage, even if it’s not always enforced, that almost all of the best movies are about love triumphing over adversities like family opposition, religious or caste differences.

    His name is one that brings memories of a mad genius; a cinema auteur with balls of steel. He was a man who would redefine the Western genre and horrifically expose the true nature of inhumanity and violence, that the old school studios and television audiences took for granted; while at the same time, serving as the ground work for the newest generations of directors and Hollywood rebels. This is the story of Sam Peckinpah.

    She's Out Of My League is an interesting movie. I've seen this movie 10 years ago when it first came out so I wasn't so sure how it aged. Seeing as movies such as Hitch by Will Smith haven't fared so well in this new world I thought this movie might suffer the same fate. Thankfully it doesn't. It talks about personal insecurities. Looking deeper into this movie you can see how it still relates to how we treat each other today.

I will never stop writing articles about how badass she is because people who refute me don’t actually read comic books, or know how to read at all who knows, so here is an even more in depth look at the growth of Scarlet Witch’s powers. The powers of the Scarlet Witch are often overlooked (or dismissed because she didn’t get what comic book nerds would consider overpowered until House of M), the reality is that she was always truly powerful her powers just weren’t clearly defined until closer to the 1980s.

He has all the characteristics of the classic Bruce Wayne, the strong jaw, full head of hair, not to mention the sex appeal.

    The Golden Girls

    One of the most iconic shows regarding friendship is The Golden Girls, about a group of ladies who, by pure fate, entered each other's lives and forever changed them. The show was as memorable as the theme song that randomly pops in your head when you least expect it to. It is so much more than the "picture it" stories or the cheesecake fueled all-nighters. It is the epitome of friendship and just how far a person would go to protect it and keep it sacred.
