A Great Read (Err Listen)

This is Not a paid advertisement.

I picked this up from Amazon Audible and it was a great listen. I had to pause several times because I was at work, but it will be one that I re-listen to a few times. Don’t let the title put you off… it’s more about letting go of things that don’t really matter, leaving you more time and energy to dedicate to what does.

Basically it’s Punk Zen. I needed a refresher in the direction of the eight fold path, and this was it.

Wolverine and the X-Men

Wolverine and the X-Men (2008)


   Today, in the Quantum Cave, we are screening the first few episodes of Wolverine and the X-Men. This is a show that was pulled off of the air far before its time. Well animated, and perfectly plotted, the series took a new spin on an old favorite. It wasn’t a continuation of X-Men: The Animated Series, nor was it related to X-Men: Evolution. The only  thing unchanged between this iteration and the previous, Evolution, was the return of Meghan Black as the voice of Rouge. Along with that link to a previous show came the voice of Steven Blum, as Logan, to firmly anchor us into this new reality for the team. His voice gives the show a solid amount of gravitas from the very beginning.

   I won’t get through the entire series today, we have a Back to the Future trilogy marathon planned, so I’ll jump forward and praise the finale. The show ended on such a strong note that it’s even more unfortunate that we didn’t get a second season. No spoilers if you haven’t seen it, but a nod and wink to those who did. Like Young Justice, this one deserves another shot.
