This debate

My family is watching the Republican debate and eating Chinese food. I'm eating tacos, since I don't like Chinese food.

10 candidates! That's ridiculous. This looks like a game show.

Ha ha. Of course, Donald Trump says he won't support the chosen Republican.

These guys all look very orange. Did they all apply fake tans, or is it our tv?

Dad was surprised Ben Carson is in the top ten. Carson thinks it is very important to have a brain. Sadly, many of the candidates are brainless! Zing!

Jeb Bush says they called him Jeb in Florida because he earned it. Huh? I don't get it.

Oh, Trump. Why are you so mean to women? Because he doesn't like being politically correct. Okay. What does this have to do with being a jerk to women. Wow! Now he's a jerk to the moderator! Trump thinks he can says anything he wants. How come I get in trouble when I say things without thinking?

Here is Scott Walker: he defunds Planned Parenthood, but didn't really answer the question. I think this is a trend tonight. Don't answer the questions.

Huckabee is being hyperbolic. Hyperbole annoys me. "Huckabee annoys me," says Jack.

Rand Paul -- didn't answer the question. I hate to point this out, but if I answered questions like this in school I would not get good grades.

Immigration!! Bush is actually answering the question. He's written a book about this, you know. Bush says Barack Obama has done nothing for 6 long years.

Here comes da Trump! He has evidence that the Mexcian government is sending criminals. Oh, no, he's not sharing evidence. His evidence is that he visited the border and the border patrol says the American government is stupid. Good to know.

Commercial break -- this debate is stupid. No one is answering any of the questions they are asked. They are just blah blah-ing about whatever they want

This Ohio governor didn't answer the question. Rubio says people from Mexico aren't coming here. It's people from Guatamala and Honduras. But he still didn't answer the question if the American government is stupid.

Scott Walker claims he listens to the American people. Um, what?

Ted Cruz is the only one wearing a striped tie, I think.

Topic switch -- onto TERROR

Off topic: Chris Christie's hair looks very weird.

Rand Paul stands for the BILL OF RIGHTS!

Christie says Paul is a dork. I agree. Rand Paul says Christie hugs Obama. So? I'd hug Obama if he offered. Hugs are great. My great grandma Helen said everyone needed 8 hugs per day to grow.

Back to Ben Carson! He was afraid he wouldn't get to talk again! My cartooning teacher Rich likes Ben Carson. He says Carson has a remarkable life story.

Boy, Trump thinks he's awesome. What does he think about health care? I didn't even understand him. Neither did Rand Paul. Trump says he buys politicians. Do we want a president who just buys things???

Walker says Hillary Clinton has screwed up every country she's touched. "All 112 countries?" Jack asked.

They are all blabbing about education. I'm taking a taco break. Mom says she'll type whatever I have to say.  [He has nothing to say. Too busy eating tacos.]

Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs -- I'd see that movie.

They are NOT answering the questions we want asked! They're just flapping their gums.

Ben Carson doubts that Hillary would be the Democratic nominee??

Now -- the ECONOMY!!

Jeb Bush -- just said a bunch of stuff. It was like all the topics in one answer.

These candidates keep saying "I'm the only one on this stage who..."

How long is this debate? I'm tired of these guys. Jack says "only 53 more minutes of insanity."

Obamacare is to blame for EVERYTHING. Jack and I are going to start blaming everything on Obamacare. Jack wants to retroactively blame his Geometry grade on Obamacare. Dad says "keep dreamin'"

Can you even imagine Trump as president?  How many people could he insult? Ha ha. The moderator is laughing because Trump is ridiculous.

I think I'd like to be a small business owner. I don't know what I'd make or do, though.

I don't know how much more of this I can watch.  I should be keeping a list of who actually answered their questions.  But social issues are next, so lets see what they say.

http://www.vox.com/2015/8/6/9113893/republican-debate-bingo

This is the debate bingo card. We've been going through the squares to see what we get.

Ha ha. Is Trump even a Republican? He's evolving. He says Reagan also evolved. Ronald Reagan stopped evolving, though, since he's DEAD.

I think I like Jeb Bush best. He's cheerful and positive and I like his glasses. Even Trump thinks he's a gentleman.  The rest of these guys are kind of goofy.

Top goofs: 1.) Trump (goof in chief) 2.) Rand Paul 3.) Scott Walker  4.) Huckabee  5.) Ted Cruz

Not very goofy: 1.) Bush 2.) Kasich

Jack is looking us how much everyone has spoken. Trump has spoken for 7.5 minutes. Rand Paul has only gotten to talk for 2.5 minutes. I think I'd rather listen to Trump.

Huckabee says the purpose of the military is to kill people and break things.

Benghazi!  It only took someone 1 hour and 42 minutes to say Benghazi!

I'm having an ice cream sandwich. Mom has the keyboard again.

Chris Christie has an American flag pin in the shape of New Jersey! We can't make fun of NJ because mom was born there.

After the break, the candidates and God are going to make their final statements.

There was just a Dulcolax commercial. Mom wants to know if that is their target audience -- constipated people?

Does this count as Cruz's final statement? Or was that just his God answer?

Kasich is not answering the question. Did God speak to you, Y/N? Not hard.

Walker said God didn't give him a list.

Rubio thinks God has blessed the Republican party. Jack wonders if God really pays attention to the US political process.

Walker is nodding like a Ben Carson fanboy. That's the second time they've shown him doing that.

uh oh -- here comes Rand Paul!  Blah Blah Blah. He says he's a different kind of republican. "Yes, he's a libertarian," says Jack.

Jack is swearing while Cruz speaks. Watch your language, Buster!

And we're done. Dad changed the channel to watch Jon Stewart's last show. He asked if we thought the candidates would say anything new in the closing statements. We all agreed they would NOT.

HOT!

It was very hot and sweaty today, but mom says it is supposed to cool off, so I shouldn't get used to it. Chicago weather is so weird.

Some Hawks game last night, eh? I wonder if the Hawks will be able to beat the Ducks and make it to the finals?

I need a haircut like nobody's business.  Because of the Chicago heat, and all. Mom says I have Mayer hair -- enough hair on my head for 2 people. I get it from my grandpa.

Sad Andy :-(

Why am I sad? Because my brother Jack is done with school tomorrow, and I have to go for many more weeks. Yuck. YUCK.

Mom says Jack is going on a school trip to Greece and Italy in a week an he'll be gone until after I'm done with school. Mom says I'm going to miss Jack, but I don't think so. Dad says pretend. I'll just let mom live in her fantasy land.

Back to the Hawks game!  Hawks are winning 3-2!

Unclin and Shufflin

Yesterday my parents and brother went to the Artist in All at Misrecordia, where you can buy art made by its residents. And like every year since it would be too loud and crowded for me, I got dropped off at my Uncle John's place.

It's been like this since maybe 2010. My uncle John's apartment has a TV with a special thing that allows it to access the Internet, a Shuffleshot arcade machine and a nice view of a river. I brought my laptop, my Nintendo 3DS, my portable DVD player, my Perry the Platypus & Black Panther Vinylmations and a few DVDs, such as a collection of old cartoons ranging from Betty Boop, Popeye, Superman & lots, The Simpsons season 17, my Animaniacs collection and a collection of random episodes from a few Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon.

At Uncle John's, I ate pizza from Little Caesar's, a vanilla-with-chocolate ice cream cone and some Goldfish pretzels. I didn't get the chance to watch some TV because I was paying attention to my laptop so I watched stuff like Access Hollywood for the first time.

Overall I had a good time at my Uncle John's. Sadly I didn't get a chance to watch any of my Animaniacs DVDs but at least I got to watch my classic toons DVD which I haven't touched since Christmas 2013.

A Visitor

We had a visitor tonight. Uncle John came over to park his car while he went to see The Who. He stayed to eat a Wendy's hamburger and fries. I don't eat Wendy's because I am allergic to their fries -- they make me hurl. I had McDonald's instead. My new favorite thing is the triple cheeseburger. Uncle John also had to bring Cubs tickets to my dad, and asked me if I thought the Hawks were going to win. I said that depends if they play well enough to beat the Ducks. I hope they win, but you never know. Mom made Uncle John move his car so it wasn't blocking our neighbor's parking spot.

MCU Theories

To honor the release of Avengers Age of Ultron and the coming movies, I've decided to list some Marvel Cinematic Universe theories. Just to be clear, there will be massive spoilers for those who haven't seen most of these movies even me. So here we go.

The Infinity Gauntlet we saw in Thor was created for security purposes.
In the mid-credits scene of Ultron, Thanos is shown putting on the Gauntlet and proclaims that he will hunt for the Infinity Stones himself. Yet previously in Thor's first solo outing, we see another Infinity Gauntlet among Odin's Vault. What I think is that the first gauntlet was created to represent how it would look while the real one was stolen by Thanos many years back. Plus, notice the vault. Thanos probably gave the Gauntlet to someone, most likely Kang the Conqueror who is the only one of his henchmen that haven't failed him, for safe-keeping until further notice.

The Masters of Evil lineup
Since Infinity War will be the grand finale of the Infinity Stones arc that was established in Thor, these guys will have to be in! As usual, they will be led by Baron Zemo (who has been confirmed to appear in Captain America 3) but the lineup will be different as most members haven't been introduced yet such as the Crimson Dynamo. They will be......

  • Abomination
  • Enchantress (who may appear in Thor Ragnarok)
  • Nebula
  • Arnim Zola (this time appearing in his classic robot form from the comics)
  • Darren Cross/Yellowjacket (if Ant-Man becomes an Avenger)
And probably more. Leave your suggestions in the comments.

Sadly, this is all I can think of because this is taking too long. Bye now!

Disney Infinity 3.0

Recently, the third entry in the Disney Infinity series was announced, this time focusing on the Star Wars franchise as the last one focused on Marvel Comics. Featured playsets include Twilight of the Republic which is based off The Clone Wars animated series and featuring Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul & Yoda as playable characters and Rise Against the Republic based off the original trilogy featuring Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and Darth Vader. There is also going to be a playset based off the upcoming Pixar film Inside Out (which my mom is excited for), a new Marvel set with Ultron and the Hulkbuster and a playset based off the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Also featured are regular Mickey, Minnie, Mulan, Olaf and Sam Flynn & Quorra of TRON Legacy, who were previously featured in 2.0 as characters exclusive to the mobile and PC versions. To commemorate this, here are my most wanted characters for this.

5. Black Panther
Black Panther..............BLACK MOTHER SEA-FLIPPING PANTHER!!!! Now before I go completely insane, let me state this clearly. With everyone's favorite King of Wakanda appearing in Captain America Civil War and his own solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is there any reason not to put him in?

4. The Good Dinosaur
Now this would be a good way to promote a movie. It would bring a bit more diversity into the game, Arlo and Spot could be playable characters and Arlo would be the first four-legged character.'

3. TV Shows
Now this would be awesome! We already have Phineas and Ferb, so why not the likes of Gravity Falls, Wander over Yonder, DuckTales, Gummi Bears, Gargoyles, Kim Possible, American Dragon and so much more!

2. Star Wars Rebels
Since this game is about Star Wars, then why not put the most recent animated entry in? Playable characters would be Ezra, Kanan, Hera, Zeb, Sabine, Chopper and the Inquisitor. Plus, it would certainly hype up season 2,

1. Goofy
We got Mickey in the first, Donald in the second, so we really need Goofy. If we have Goofy, the classic trio would be complete. And also Oswald.
