First, I want to thank anyone who’s still visiting this blog. I realize that I haven’t been around for a while, but starting now, that’s going to change. I’ll be devoting huge quantities of time to the Internet. I’m going to be like Sandra Bullock in that movie The Net, where she was always on the Internet or whatever.
Speaking of movies, while I was away, I saw that most life-altering, mind-blowing, heartrending, film ever to be projected onto the silver screen: Kenneth Branagh’s Thor. The title may actually just be “Thor,” but for some baffling/genius reason it was directed by Kenneth Branagh; and so, it only makes sense to refer to the movie as Kenneth Branagh’s Thor, or, alternatively, Thor: A Kenneth Branagh Joint.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I strongly suggest that you reevaluate the direction your life is headed, and if you saw it, but didn’t enjoy it, then you should begin questioning your sanity because you are insane.
I’m convinced that Chris Hemsworth isn’t even a real person, but some computer generated man. His body is bonkers. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Kenneth Branagh reveals on the DVD commentary that Chris Hemsworth is actually Thor, Norse god of thunder and sick abs.
Anyway, as a result of seeing the movie, I’m now obsessed with Thor. I bought a book on Norse mythology, ordered a Thor comic from Amazon, and have been naming all of my Sims after Norse gods.
Also, for the first time, I understand why Sara from Adventures in Babysitting, wore that Thor helmet all the time. Like, I can totally relate.
...And I’m pretty sure that she gets so upset with Brad for calling Thor a “homo,” not because there’s anything wrong with being gay, but because she’s an incredibly progressive 1980s-8-year-old and feels that her brother is being insensitive, offensive, and decidedly un-PG-13.
Because--like my idol, Sara--I believe that no outfit is complete without a silver-winged helmet, but am, unfortunately, too poor to buy one from Target, I decided to make my own. You can make one too.
