The rise of superhero movies like Avengers: Infinity War, and what it means to a mild-mannered comic book fan

When I was growing up, I was lucky enough to have a comic book subscription.

I don’t know how or when it started, but each month for several years, the mailman delivered the latest issue of Amazing Spider-Man to my mailbox. It was easily the best mail I received each month and I always looked forward to it. (Full disclosure, it was also the only mail received most months.)

A few thoughts on eyeglasses and ways to improve them

eyeglasses-41710_960_720After tearing my contact lens the other morning, I found myself once again wearing eyeglasses all day.

I first started wearing glasses in early elementary school, and I wore them pretty much all the time until I switched over to contacts when I was in my 20s.

While wearing glasses again for a few days recently, it reminded me of days gone by, made me think about what I like and dislike about glasses and gave me some ideas for improving eyewear. Basically, I have been obsessing on the glasses, so I am going to try to draw you into my obsession here with a few thoughts about them.
