So I'm still basking in the afterglow of Captain Marvel. One of the few Marvel movies I want to see again, actually. Don't get me wrong, I love the Marvel stuff, but I don't always need to see them again, you know? But in this case I definitely want to. As for other news, I'm debuting a new feature- Tales from Northern Michigan- this week. I'll be taking a look at a snowy owl that may or may not need rescuing, an awesome bald eagle that did need rescuing, and a Native American ceremony that accompanied its release. The first post will be on Monday. Oh, and if you're so inclined I had a guest post this week at Dani's blog!

This past week I posted a road trip story with Hawkeye and Thor- that was fun- and I also shared my thoughts on Captain Marvel and why I think it's so awesome. In addition there was a review for The Sky So Heavy which had all the postapoc feels. Next week I'll have a review for Girls with Sharp Sticks.

  3. I love birds of prey. I've had the chance to get up close and personal with a golden eagle and it was the most amazing creature! So beautiful!

  6. The Eagle is gorgeous. We have a community near here of them and they're so impressive to watch. I'm always surprised by how huge they are. Love the game looking artwork. Made me want to play some old PC games! Have a great week!

  7. That's heartening that you feel Captain Marvel is worth a repeat. I like your new post idea about the Northern Michigan themes. The snowy owl was so beautiful. :)

    I get lost in my head when I look through your graphic post-ups.

    Have a great week, Greg!

  8. There is a place near us that has eagle cams, and they will sometimes post interesting things on Facebook that the eagles are doing!

  12. No one is more excited about this new feature than me, just saying. 😁 I love those pictures at the end, I would absolutely hang them up in a bar-type area. The other pictures are also fascinating. The Silo one might be my fave. And Solitude creeped me out but I still like it because damn.

    I added the Golden City books on Amazon- I keep saying I am going to the trial but then review books ugh. First I am going to read The Gone World because well, I promised hah. Hope Girls With Sharp Sticks is going well too- I really thought it was good.

    1. Well, thank you. :) And yes- same. I need a bar area w/ lots of fantasy drink themes etc.

      Golden city is amazing but hard to find? Like I don't think they're even in English, except on ComiXology?

      Delete
  13. I'm looking forward to your new feature, Greg. Sounds fascinating. And great pics this week! Some were lovely and a few were creepy. LOL

    1. Thanks! Being familiar with Michigan you'll probably nod knowingly at lotsa this stuff...

  14. I almost wish I loved Marvel movies...they do sound like fun.

    Great images, as usual. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  15. I'm glad you liked the Marvel movie so much. I can't wait to see that one too. And I so get you.. the movies are good but you don't really have to see them more than once.
    Good luck with your new feature. Happy reading!

    1. My favorite! I wasn't expecting that! And yes most of them- once is enough, but this one oddly enough I actually wanna watch a few times. :)

  16. Girls With Sharp Sticks looks really interesting. I should really give YA more of a try, as I tend to overlook it most of the time.

    1. I read a lot of YA but mostly thrillers these days. I do like an occasional contemp though!

  17. Hey There Gorgeous Greg, and hope all is well. I checked out Captain Marvel this weekend, and it was everything good that you and others have said. This is definitely one I'll check out again and probably again.(lol) Looking forward to your tales from Michigan, and imagine it will be quite entertaining! Hugs and Happy Sunday! RO

  20. Mirkwood Merlot for me. I love that logo and very fond of red wine! :)

    Need to check out your Q&A and I love the idea of your new feature. I could do one from my town but it wouldn't be as exciting and I think would revolve around lots of crime and creepy people. I really need to move lol

    Bitmap movie images are cool. I love the LOTR one :)

    Have a great week, Greg! Happy Reading! :)

    1. Right! Pass the merlot...

      "lots of crime and creepy people" lol. I think we have that everywhere! Thanks though- I'm definitely focusing on northern Michigan, which is vacation wonderland, as southern Michigan is more cities, and like you said, nothing too special!

  21. I have to admit I didn't feel rush to watch Captain Marvel in theaters, but I wanted to wait until it comes out for streaming.
    But as I see you liked it so much, I might change my mind (read I changed my mind, but I'll go to theaters only if I find time while it's still screening).
    You got me curious about your new feature... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm excited to hear that you loved Captain Marvel! I'm definitely going to see it one of these days. I've been terrible about getting to the theater lately, though. I usually end up watching everything streaming or from the library.

  23. awww very cool about the animal rescues, I like seeing stuff like that.
    Enjoy your movies and books. I rarely watch a Marvel movie, I don't know what it is. I can't get into superhero stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm under firm instructions from Tim, the boy I teach, that I'm NOT to watch Captain Marvel until I've watched the rest of the Marvel franchise... So I shan't:). Glad you found it so enjoyable, Greg.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh I'm looking forward to your new feature! It sounds fantastic. I don't usually watch Marvel movies all that often, but I must say your praises have made me want to... maybe next weekend! I always love the artwork you find, I especially like the flying city and underwater Atlantis. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Good to know you would see Captain Marvel again. W usually wait for it to hit cable..but maybe we will go watch on the big screen. Hope this week is sunny and warm!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I've been hearing a lot of good things about Capt. Marvel. It definitely seems to be a popular movie. I'm not a huge movie theater person, so I will probably just wait until it comes out on DVD to see it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I want to see Captain Marvel! I love a kick ass girl! Lots of cool images this week! :)

  29. I was looking at the titles below the pic instead of above, and totally thought "Lady of the Lake" was the underwater skeleton, which honestly would be even better.

  30. I'm loving all those ocean/boat pics!! Make me wish I didn't live in landlocked Ohio!

  31. I am so with you on Captain Marvel! I loved that movie so much and I want to watch it over and over and over again.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The only Marvel I'd see again are Iron Man, and maybe the first Guardian, so we will see. DVD SOON!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ooo yay for the new feature. That sounds like a cool one :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've heard good things about Captain Marvel, we recently watched The Black panther and venom, so we might check out more Marvel movies. I might stop by your review for the movie next to read your thoughts. You founds some great pictures for this post! I always like looking at them.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'd love to get to Captain Marvel in the theater, especially as you think so highly of it. It's just so darn busy right now. Have a great week, Greg!

  36. Such great art this week. I love Ark 2 and looks at that adorable sea turtle! I love turtles. I've yet to see Captain Marvel and am knee deep in Sons of Anarchy right now.

  37. I don't even know what the heck Captain Marvel is about. I swear that I must live under a rock at times. Glad you enjoyed it as much as you did. Love all of the artwork. I hope you have a wonderful week, Greg!

  38. I've heard really good things about Girls with SHARP sticks!

  39. I want to see Capt Marvel but not in a big hurry, as in I will probably wait till it comes on Netflix or something...lol. Glad you enjoyed it though!

  40. I still need to get off my butt and go see Captain Marvel. We had planned to go this weekend but then the weather was so nice, we ended up outside all weekend instead. Your new feature sounds like it's going to be pretty cool!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow, I guess I need to get myself in gear and watch Captain Marvel. I like the comic movies well enough but I definitely have had overload of them in the past few years and kinda stopped watching them. I will rectify that with such high praise!

    Have a great week Greg!

  42. Congrats on your guest post :) I hope you have a great week, and Yay Captain Marvel!!

  43. I learned over the weekend that there have been 20 Marvel movies in recent years. In all that time, I've seen five. The last one I saw was Into the Spiderverse. My weekly update

  44. Glad you enjoyed Marvel so much and the Tales from Northern Michigan sound like it will be really informative.

  45. I’ll be checking out your guest post. Australia is home to eleven species of Owl, one who’s call that sounds like a barking dog.

    Have a great reading week

  47. What a great new feature. I've been thinking of doing something different with one of my blogs. Not quite sure yet.

    Love the cover of Sorry, Wrong Corpse. You always have such interesting artwork too.

    Enjoy your week.

  52. Aw, I love that Captain Marvel is such a big hit. My hubs took our boys to see it the weekend before last, and they loved it.

  53. I saw the bald eagle video and thought it was awesome. Love the pulp fiction title/cover. Glad you enjoyed the movie. Can it really be spring? Although a snowy mix is in the forecast.

  54. I love the floating cities, and the house I thought was a treehouse looks like a repurposed space ship upon closer inspection! I lovethat; and the ambient. πŸŒ³πŸš€
