I am a Senior at Western Kentucky University, taking online classes towards a Computer Information Technology Bachelor's Degree. I am a big Drum and Bugle Corps fan. If money stays stable, and parts of the lower body cooperate (especially looking at YOU, right foot!), I would like to try out again for a group. My archnemesis is Money. A close second are Cold and Tendonitis. "The Nexus" is a place where I scribble-type random thoughts, opinions, and reviews on this and that, usually very late at night (like now; it is currently 2:15 AM). I like to keep my posts somewhat light-hearted but will touch on politics, crime, race, and other heavy topics. Hope you enjoy the blog!

Saturday Morning Cartoons #3

One of my favorite cartoons as a kid – early-to-mid- 1980s – was Transformers. Fast-forward 10 years and one of my favorite cartoons was Beast Wars. What happens when you combine the 2? Insanity, double-crosses, double-crosses of the double-cross, and a moderate dose of insanity.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

I have spent the last few months on Netflix, catching up with some of the Arrowverse TV series. I started with “The Flash”; after some delays, I finished the first 3 seasons a few weeks ago. I’ll write about that some time in the future.

I’m now working on “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”. I am about 4 episodes through Season 2 and have enjoyed my virtual ride on the Wave Rider with the Legends. Of course I enjoy seeing the Legends in different time periods, especially when they run into other heroes (and villains) from the DC Universe. However, there’s one feature that I enjoy with “Legends” that I wasn’t expecting, when I began this journey: they address social topics.

Review: “Justice League”

Some minor and mild spoilers below.

I watched this movie as a fan. I’m by no means a comic book historian or expert; I’m only read maybe 20 issues of anything. I know most of the back stories of the major protagonists and a little bit of Steppenwolf’s history. So, you won’t see any grumbling about how this character wasn’t like the books or how Steppenwolf was apparently different from his comic incarnation. I watched the movie as a fan.

What I watched was a very entertaining, pretty good movie.

Review: “Hawkeye #2″… and Hello!

I am normally seen… well, heard…. on “Podicus Wrecks”, but I am venturing over to the written side of the “Comicdom Wrecks” site for the first time. As an introduction, here is an edited post that I made on my personal site, back in July, about the Kate Bishop-featured ‘Hawkeye #2’:
