Sunday Mise en Place (July 3 to 9, ‘017)

Hey, hey, it’s Sunday, time to get the Mise en Place on.  A weekly feature of the G.O.B. where I talk about this, that and whatever.  Also included is some links to posts of the previous week and a quick teaser of what is coming in the next bit.  I am off to a late start to my day, as I was out late last night, so let’s get right into what is going on…

What’s Going On-

It’s the world famous Calgary Stampede this week in my home town.  I’m taking the year off though.  In the past 3 years I have taken one of my family members, Zyler, then Jenn, then Alex.  So, this year it’s my turn to say, nah.  Between the extreme heat, the sheer cost, and the overbearing crowds, I can afford to take a rain check this season.  However that doesn’t stop the city from going cowboy crazy.  You can run but you can’t hide.

I mentioned I was out late last night, and this is a good thing.  I was off at Eric’s studio/basement recording another podcast.  With some stuff together, our new direction nailed down, we’re ready to go.  This week we’ll be putting all the pieces together, getting a site put up, and will be posting very soon.  Stay posted.

This week also featured post #300 on the Green Onion Blog!  It was kind of a mess though.  When I was getting July in Pop Culture History together, something fell apart due to an internet connection or something.  Some pieces got leaked a day early, there was a snaffu with the scheduling, it was a whole mess.  So if you missed July in Pop Culture history, here it is, I’m sorry, I know lots of people look forward to that monthly feature.  But it was #300, whoop whoop!

Last Weeks Posts-


It is a very special week in our house!  It happens to be a small, over-energetic, life of the party, sweet, but often messy, happy, little girls birthday!  Look forward to a fun post for that.  Other than such, I got some work to do getting the site together for the podcast.  If I get much else out this week on the G.O.B. it’ll be the graphic novel reviews I mentioned last week.  Oh, and I did see Spider-Man: Homecoming, I friggin’ loved it, I loved it so much I don’t know what to do with it yet.

Thanks booknerds, also a belated happy birthday to my homie, My Comic Relief!

  1. Aww, thanks Green! To thematically tie to the line above the birthday shout-out (woo!), I celebrated in part by going to see ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ again. I’m with you. I thought it was a lot of fun!

      Where would you rank it in Spidey flicks. Honestly, I have to give it top spot, I was never a Tobey fan, and they did a fantastic job

      1. Hmmm…that’s a good question. ‘Spider-Man 2’ holds my top spot. Yes, Tobey Maguire was a bit too glum as Spider-Man but before the MCU was a thing that movie felt like a Spider-Man comic too me. While I may need a little time to sit with ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ to, see how it ages with me, right now I’d put it at the number three spot, behind ‘Spider-Man.’ Because, again, that was the first time I saw a movie that really felt like a comic book I loved. I think sometimes I take that for granted now, the movies looking and feeling so much like the comics. But Sam Raimi was doing that well before the MCU was a thing and I still love him for it. But I agree, I think everyone involved with ‘Homecoming’ did a fantastic job. They clearly love Spider-Man and it showed in the film.
