Iron Man: Rise of the Technovore
So this Marvel animated flick from 2013 was an odd cookie. For one, it’s got some slow exposition scenes with some dull visuals. Then it combines traditional anime like character animation with highly detailed 3D models for set pieces and objects. The two styles clash and often times are comical in juxtaposition.
But then there’s an amazing action scene in the middle. Hawkeye and Black Widow attempt to capture Iron Man, and it’s sweet. The Shield agents completely own Iron Man until The Punisher shows up to save Stark. Yeah, that’s right. The fuckin’ Punisher. The whole sequence is damn sweet and a ton of fun to watch.
That’s where my fanfare ends though. Compared to some of the more recent comic book animated films the Technovore just doesn’t stack up.

Never Peas: A Poem by Jeff Stephens

Peas.
Of all my childhood poisons that have returned to my life.
Broccoli, green beans, mushrooms, peppers.
My mind has changed but for one.

Peas.

Never peas.

Self motivation and goals one-sheet. Not waiting for the “new year” to get started on becoming the person I want to be. Also, shout out to my mother, who has always been a positive force in my life and has so many great ideas and tips for becoming the best “you” you can be. Thanks mom!
