The Gritty Reboot

  It had to happen at some point.  The gritty reboot where I turn in my helmet in exchange for a medallion and a huge knife.  But this is my return.  Well actually next week will be official.  This week I changed the look of the blog and I'll be consuming stuff for the coming weeks.  Watching movies, finishing some reviews, doing some commentary pieces, putting together the Catwoman week that I was about to do before my hiatus.

  When I started this the intention was to adopt a total persona and that everything would be filtered through this bombastic, offensive persona.  That got exhausting pretty quickly and it became harder to maintain the kayfabe.  It happened a lot faster than I thought, so most of these posts are not written in the "persona" but sort of a mix of persona and my actual personality, the commentaries are written entirely out of persona, which depending on where you fall may be unfortunate.  But the tone of the last few months is the tone I'm going to maintain and a part of me wants to eliminate all those kayfabed elements but another part of me wants to keep them for posterity.  So time will tell on that one.  Also the banner is going to be plain text until I do another one.  I liked the title of Superheroes Having Sex because it's a reference to the Kevin Smith movie Mallrats when Stan Lee is talking to TS about Brodie (paraphrased, my title is easier to say than Superhero Sex Organs).  I'm pretty sure it's TS, I haven't seen the movie in a while.  Although I'm sure I'll lose all those people looking for porn I guess they'll be happier that when they're looking for porn they won't mistakenly end up here and lose their boners.  By the way I can see where my traffic comes from so I'm probably eliminating 90% of my page views there.  It's a good thing I don't make money off this.

  It's not a huge reboot, I tried some more dramatic templates but I couldn't get anything I liked as much as the original template so I ended up just playing with that a little bit.  Anyway, hopefully we can get through the next year without having to abandon this place again.
