Modern art. It represents humanity's struggle against oppression. 

Just kidding, this is the pile of leftover cake scraps, and I dumped the leftover frosting on it. It just reminded me of modern "art".

Woah, I did not know this. This is super cool!
 
#FunFactFriday

Daredevil had existed for 20 years before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles showed up in the '80s and yet their origins establish that they are both the products of the same traffic accident and the same mysterious goo.

Daredevil's origin, as shown in Daredevil #1, is that when he was young he saved a blind man from getting hit by a truck, only to have a radioactive canister fall off the same truck and hit him in the face. Between the radioactivity of the substance and the impact of the hit, Daredevil was left blind.

Fast forward 20 years: The creators of the Ninja Turtles were big fans of Daredevil, especially the issues by Frank Miller. Not content with simply borrowing Daredevil's origin, they actually went ahead and wrote their characters into it. In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, we see the exact same scene as before only from a different perspective.

After the canister hits the child, it then falls into a sewer and mutates some baby turtles which of course turned them into the loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that we have come to known.

One of my favorite references in +Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. last night was a more obscure one.

WARNING: Possible spoilers for Cap 2 and AoS below.




The secret Hydra base in AoS was hidden below a barber shop. A direct reference to the original SHIELD comics way back in Strange Tales. The SHIELD base was hidden under a barber shop and even had the same drop down barber chairs like they had in the show. This show is clearly getting a lot of its vibe from the early Strange Tales comics, and I'm loving it. It was another great episode last night, and it looks like it is building up to an awesome finish.

Just put +Brianna Eret  and my names in for the lottery to see a filming of Conan on our honeymoon in LA. Hopefully +Team Coco picks us to get some tickets, we'll only be there a few days and we would love to go!

Hahaha that's funny. Seeing a movie filming would be pretty cool too. We're staying in a hotel near LAX for a few days in May after our wedding, then driving down to San Diego and staying there a couple days too.

This is pretty interesting, I had no idea Colbert was religious. I enjoy his show and his views, and I have even more respect for him after learning this. It's nice to see other liberal Christians out there that share my views on a lot of things.
When Colbert dares to get real, he's surprisingly passionate about his beliefs.

Okay that's what I wasn't sure if they had anything set in stone yet but it sound like they don't. Well I'm definitely looking forward to it.
