How Avengers Endgame Should Have Ended

This epic instalment of How It Should Have Ended is a most enjoyable romp through the mind-boggling plot contrivances and inconsistencies of recent block-buster Avengers Endgame.
It’s one thing to adopt your own idiosyncratic version of time travel.
It’s another thing altogether not to particularly bother to apply that version with any pretence of internal consistency.

Kodi Lee – Blind, Autistic, Talented

On the off chance you haven’t seen or heard this – watch this video of Kodi Lee auditioning on America’s Got Talent.
It’s been watched about 17 million times when I posted this, and it’ll pick up millions more.

Kodi Lee is blind and autistic, and he comes out on stage to sing and play the piano.
See for yourself.
If you’ve already watched it, watch it again.
You may need a tissue or two.

The Ultimate Star Wars Trailer

This fan-made trailer is for the whole Star Wars saga thus far.
It looks like they’ve been telling one story all along.
(I think Han even shoots first)

How Funko Makes Its Pop! Figures

Funko Pop! figures are a bit of phenomenon. Having watched toys and action figures for a few decades now, for something new to come and become a pervasive presence in both the general toy buying public and the collecting fanbase across a number of genres is very unusual. How long will it last?
Here’a couple of background videos.
One from Forbes. (a bit of sign that this is mainstream business)

And one from SYFY Wire.

The Most Interesting Man In The World

Know your meme sources.
An article I read today referenced the actor who plays the part of ‘The Most Interesting Man In The World’ for a series of commercials for a brand of beer.
The image pops up as an internet meme “I don’t always …, but when I do I …”, adding to the popularity of the image.

The conceit of the ads is something akin to ‘Chuck Norris’ jokes.
Here’s compilation of some of the ads.
A good source of material for dad jokes.
