Babies, Life, and Being a Nerd

Trying to balance an online presence while being a father and a friend isn’t always easy. Finding a balance between being a good husband, father, friend, and blogger is a difficult balance to maintain. Most of the time my online identity is what falls behind but that is ok, because that is the priority I have set in life. My family comes first and with my newborn baby girl, I have not been able to do much lately, and my friends come second but I am sure they feel that is a distant second. I try to do as much as I can with my Nerd Management brothers but alas I fall behind. Luckily they understand as well.

The good thing about an online blog is that it will always be there no matter how many times you quit and then go back. It always waits for you just sitting there waiting for you to tell it what you want to say. Some people have a lot to say and some people have a little. Some people have followers that care and some people just put words into the vastness of space. Either way, its there waiting for you.

A lot has happened since the last time I blogged and we will see what I have to say and how much I will be able to say it in the coming time. Just a reminder for those who remember, http://www.nerdmgmt.com is no longer around but we can be found on soundcloud with season 7 coming up and on facebook as Nerd Management.

Deadpool Movie Review

For a movie that was made for fans this movie stands up on its own two feet. This movie has teeth and uses them to bite its way into your hearts. Normally a movie made solely for fan service you would not expect such a high caliber movie, but Deadpool hits on all cylinders and gives you all out extreme violence, vulgarity, nudity, bloodshed, humor and everything else we all wanted from this movie. Ask and ye shall receive.

The test footage we all saw 2 and a half years ago, starts out the film with some additions that make it even more fantastic. The slow motion action scenes really drive home the feeling of a panel by panel sequence from the comic books.  The constant 4th Wall breaking, really brings Deadpool to life. There are a few points in the movie where you would think that it might get a little repetitive but it bails itself out with a hilarious joke or gratuitous violence and you forget Wade has been talking just to you for a few moments.

The amount of Easter Eggs and references to other Marvel and Fox properties is enormous and not at all overwhelming. They are all well placed and well written. There are aspects of Deadpool and the people he surrounds himself with from every era of Deadpool from the Comics. There are strong ties to Fabian Nicieza with Ajax being the main villain, Joe Kelly with Weasel and Blind Al, Gail Simone with the overarching love story, Victor Gischler with the vulgarity and the Team Up aspect with Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus, Jason Aaron with the nudity and violence, and Daniel Way’s way of making Deadpool seem insane but his plans always work out in the end. If anything this movie was a great homage to all of the people who have defined Deadpool.

This movie is as much Ryan Reynolds as it is Rob Liefield and it is a true tribute to the fans because it has everything you could have asked for. The origin in this movie is pretty close to the Minus One, One Shot that came out about 12 years ago but we are missing some important players such as Dr. Killebrew but easily substituted for him was Ajax as the mastermind. Having the X-Men in this movie was amazing, but then to find out it is only Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead at first was a bummer until it wasn’t. By far NTW stole the show with those 2 and Colossus really held his own as a leader.

Deadpool went from this 1 shot villain in the pages of a dying franchise of New Mutants to a headlining name in the Marvel Comics roster. Showing up on the second issue of the Newly launched X-Force facing off against Weapon X Garrison Kane, and making a huge name for himself Deadpool was a hit. Little by little, year by year he got more appearances and more books. He has grown as a character exponentially until he is the pure gold minting character that drives people to cosplay by the thousands every year at conventions around the world. Deadpool is a phenomenon and this movie is an homage to his fans, Every. Last. One.

As a true fan, from the beginning. As a 1st grader who picked up New Mutants 98 off of a turnstile at an IGA in Jamestown, IN. I whole-heartedly give Deadpool a 10/10 and recommend all of you to go see it as well.

Monday Morning 9 to 5: Software Developer

From Nine to Five: Super Powers, Normal Jobs

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have super powers? Yep me too, but what would it be like if the people in our every day lives had super powers too? What if it were so mundane and ordinary that everyone on Earth had a power and they had to go on living their everyday lives like it were no big deal? What current comic book superheroes would be best suited for normal blue collar jobs? That is the question at hand and each Monday I will bring you a different job that people hold everyday and I will suggest a few different Superheroes and/ or Villains that would be best suited for those jobs. I hope you enjoy, because this weeks job is:

Software Developer

  • Reviewing current systems
  • Presenting ideas for system improvements, including cost proposals
  • Working closely with analysts, designers and staff
  • Producing detailed specifications and writing the program codes
  • Testing the product in controlled, real situations before going live
  • Preparation of training manuals for users
  • Maintaining the systems once they are up and running

What current superhero or villain would suit this position best? Hmmm. I have a pretty good Idea who I think would make a great Software Developer? Brainiac? Danger? no, I am thinking more along the lines of Forge from the X-Men!

Forge, from the X-Men, has the mutant ability to understand machines. He has the ability to create anything he can think of and that would come in very handy if he were a software designer for a large company. Forge would be the ultimate IT guy, no matter what problem you or your company have with their systems Forge can create a program to fix it. He could also build you a network out of any electronics he could find.

Imagine hackers attacking your company and there was nothing you could do to stop it. All you would have to do is call Forge and he would create a software to counteract the attack without even skipping a beat. This would save you and your company millions and millions of dollars. All Forge would have to do is collect buckets of cash. So next time you are going over the software any anything you have purchased, maybe Forge could have made it better.

 

Forge Forge working hard on that new Anti-Virus Software you asked for!

Monday Morning 9 to 5: Firefighter

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have super powers? Yep me too, but what would it be like if the people in our every day lives had super powers too? What if it were so mundane and ordinary that everyone on Earth had a power and they had to go on living their everyday lives like it were no big deal? What current comic book superheroes would be best suited for normal blue collar jobs? That is the question at hand and each Monday I will bring you a different job that people hold everyday and I will suggest a few different Superheroes and/ or Villains that would be best suited for those jobs. I hope you enjoy, because this weeks job is:

Firefighter

The Invisible Woman by rkw0021 More rkw0021.deviantart.com
Imagine a raging fire that is taking too many man hours to put out. The firefighter are also fighting exhaustion and losing a battle that looks like they cannot win. Then suddenly without delay Sue Storm, the Invisible Woman, comes out of nowhere with a giant force field around the fire and chokes out all of the oxygen around it. A fire that was out of control is suddenly out and she saves the day.
I mean now that their book is cancelled and the funding for her research has been cut and Reed is in hiding, Sue has a lot of free time to do things. She already has a red uniform hanging around, so why not put her niche powers to good use as a Firefighter, I mean it is 2014. So imagine also a building downtown that has a gas leak and they are trying to evacuate all of the tennants before an explosion occurs. Sue would have that gasline shut down almost instantly. AMAZING, better yet Fantastic!
