“TAXI!”

The IT Crowd is one of my favorite sitcoms from the 2000s. In season 2, episode 4 of the series — titled “The Dinner Party” — Jen meets a guy and plans for a dinner party, but it goes wrong when she ends up inviting her co-workers (Moss, Roy and Richmond) and they point out the unfortunate pronunciation of her new beau’s name: Peter File (which in a UK dialect sounds like pedophile).

Jen brushes it off, but when the two are set to go on holiday together, well…watch for yourself.

The older I get, the more I realize I’m Jen in these types of situations. In any type of situation, honestly.

Even if everything is seemingly going well, the slightest hiccup, error, or misstep activates my fight or flight response and I want out. I’m talking nuclear option here — block the phone number, send the email to spam, and go about the rest of my day like nothing happened.

This has only intensified since the pandemic started. The most recent time I did this? About an hour ago with a new therapist who was not available for our first consultation at our scheduled time.

*sigh*

(I mean…it’s good that I recognize the behavior when it happens right? Right?)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Fancast!

I don’t remember how I first found out about the Ace Attorney series of games, but once I started in on them, I was hooked on the memorable characters, difficult cases, and the interlocking story between all the installments.

Ace Attorney is one of Capcom’s lesser known franchises (next to Street Fighter or Mega Man), but it definitely holds it own. Next year, the franchise turns twenty years old! There have been spin-off games, an anime series, and of course…a live action film in Japan.

But what if the film was redeveloped and came to the U.S.? Let’s do a fancast!

Fantastic Four Fancast!

I’m a pretty big comic book fan, although I don’t really read as much as I used to as a kid. Fantastic Four was always one of my favorite titles because of that family feel, but man…it has never had a good live action film adaptation.

The 2005 one with Chris Evans as Johnny Storm? Trash.

The 2007 sequel with Silver Surfer? Boring.

The 2015 reboot with Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm? Somehow worse than both its predecessors.

A new Fantastic Four movie has been rumored from Marvel Studios for Phase 4, so let’s have a little fun and do a fancast!

“They will fire your Black ass just as quick as they hire your Black ass.”

“Oh my God…with your profile? You shouldn’t even be applying for jobs…companies should be throwing themselves at you!”

This chipper ass lie came by the way of this new headhunter I’m working with now. She was a friend-of-a-friend connection from a happy hour Zoom I was invited to a few weeks ago.

“Let’s do this. Send me your resume, and I’ll make some calls. I promise you; something big is coming.”
