Consumed by costumes

It was announced this past week that we would indeed be having a Halloween party through work, meaning that thing of having to dress in stupid costumes has gone and been gone yeah made. That makes sense, right? We’re playing dress-up. Here are some ideas, because doing a list is easier than having to actually think about what to write:

Dead Superman (Also Naked)
Superman, but with like, blood around his neck and stuff as though someone slit his throat with a kryptonite blade. Also he’s naked, because then it’s a cheaper costume and I do so like cheaper things.

Dead Hitler (Also Naked)
Hitler is dead and was evil, so he fits Halloween perfectly, and in three weeks time my hair might have grown back nicely so I can do the Hitler emo parting. Also nudity again comes into play, as my Nazi uniform is at the dry cleaners.

Dead Guy From The Thing Who Bites The Doctor’s Arms Off With His Chest (Not Naked)
I don’t think this one should be naked, because it would actually be an awesome costume. See:

Too much effort, though. So unlikely.

The Dransfield Recommended Costume (Definitely Not Naked)
This costume involves being dressed normally and not in any dumb costume, because as Dransfields we hate Halloween for being a bunch of ass and a fake stupid non-event of a time of year.

But then, I’d never be that cynical, would I?

Suggestions are welcome, as I’ve drawn a complete blank. Nudity is double welcome.

Some shit blog about not liking superheroes

I’ve never really been big on superheroes. Shocking I know, what with me being both male and a massive geek. But they’ve never really done it for me, beyond a tiny amount of interest and a bit more when the superhero movies got all popular and sheeit.

I see absolutely no appeal in Superman. He’s the cheat code of the superhero world, and anyone who likes him is clearly a prick (apart from you, Mike). What’s that? Insurmountable odds? Oh, he can just beat them by being better and inventing powers we didn’t know he had. And Smallville is shit.

Spider-Man? Irritating prick. Batman? Not a real superhero. Robin? Dislikeable tights. Fantastic Four? Not enough Jessica Alba. Plastic Man? I don’t even know who he is, or if he’s even a good guy. Wolverine? Too popular/Hugh Jackmanny. Beer  Keg Man? I just invented him

In fact, the only one I really like is Preacher. Problem being, he isn’t a superhero. Also he didn’t use his power nearly enough, which was annoying. I mean, it was the Voice Of God – if he tells you to do something, you do it. Hence the “go fuck yourself” line providing endless hilarity. Hey ho.

Generally speaking though, most of these bastards leave me cold. Sorry, lost some geek points there I’m sure.

Oh, I also love The Punisher, but he had no powers. Just MASSIVE FUCKING GUNS. So I can justify that to myself.
