What’s great about coming home after being away on vacation are the memories you bring back, the stories and photos you have to share with your friends and family, and the feeling of being rejuvenated and ready to resume your regular life with a new vigor.
The title of this post is pretty straight forward. I will be leaving on a jet plane because I’m flying to another state for vacation starting next week. While I will have easy access to the Internet through a smartphone and another electronic device (mainly because I’m not going out of the country this time), I simply don’t want to do much of anything on a vacation.
Spring tends to start the trend of must-see blockbuster Hollywood films and it continues on through the summer months. 2014 is gearing up to be the year of the comic book superhero movies, films like The Amazing Spiderman 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Guardians of the Galaxy. The first one up is the newly released Captain America: The Winter Soldier this past weekend. Like all comic book movies, you can expect big explosions, cool fight scenes, and the hero needing to save the world from a large scale threat.
I went to go see the movie over the weekend and I absolutely enjoyed it. Winter Soldier is just as good as the first movie, maybe slightly surpassing the first film in story. I could write a review where I gush about how this action scene was cool or how hot and perfect Chris Evans was as Cap, but I won’t. If you haven’t seen the movie, definitely go out and watch it. Instead, I’ll be discussing an ongoing theme in the film’s story, which is the nature of trust. Be forewarned, there will be spoilers ahead.
If you ever wanted to hear the voice behind this blog talk about geeky things, now is your chance! I stopped by the Incoductic podcast run by fellow Geek Force Network member Joshua Evo, who also runs the awesome blog Disk Read Error. It’s my first time guest hosting on a podcast and I hope you find the episode to be an enjoyable listening experience. Or at least, you all can tolerate my nervous and excited rambling on this episode. Methinks I need to stick to writing. Hmm…
