Re: ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ thoughts

  • See this post.
  • My main takeaway was how much I really want Avengers: Age of Ultron now.
  • Should’ve been called Captain America: Black Widow Rocks.
  • The Winter Soldier will get the arc that Loki fans (especially fic writers) wish for — i.e., the bad-guy-turn-good figure.
  • (Given Sebastian Stan’s nine-picture deal, it’ll probably happen.)
  • Bad hair/no hair is a requirement for most MCU bad guys.
  • Robert Redford would easily had been Steve Rogers if the MCU existed in the 70s.
  • Falcon!
  • Good film.
  • BUT— I really was expecting more given what I’ve been told.
  • I still won’t be watching Agents of SHIELD.
  • (I tried last week but I got about five minutes in.)
  • (Maybe I’ll try again.)
  • Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark tapdancing while only wearing boxer-briefs and a top hat couldn’t save AoS.
  • Or maybe it could.

Off work, spending it watching my second favorite Avenger, Captain America

… after my favorite Avenger, Robert Downey Jr.

Question to business folks—

If you invest in a small company early on and that company ends up getting bought out by a much-bigger company, do you stand to make a profit?

(Nope, this has nothing to do with the fact that one of the companies that RDJ invested in got bought out by Disney.)

(Nope.)

(…)

(Ok, it has everything to do with that.)

Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process.
