How's 2018 treating you kids?
So far so so here.
I've dropped a few pounds already. That's a plus.
I'm taking steps to get my professional life in order. That's a plus.
The outside world continues to spin out of control. That's a minus.
On the ledger, that's a big minus that probably isn't offset by my pluses, but you do what you can.
I've also gotten caught up on SyFy's bug-nuts crazy adaptation of Grant Morrison's Happy!
Haven't seen Happy!
? You should. It's the story of a drug and violence addled/addicted former NYPD cop turned hitman trying to save his estranged daughter from a Santa obsessed lunatic with the help of his daughter's imaginary unicorn friend.
The cop is played by Christopher Meloni. The unicorn is voiced by Patton Oswalt.
I'll let that soak for a minute while you watch the trailer.
See what I mean? It's perfect viewing for 2018.
The dark comedy is pure Morrison. Give it a look.
The other reason I mention Happy!
is that the show is the origin of this week's cheesecake selection.
Please say hello to Lili Mirojnick.
Ms. Mirojnick stars as Meloni's former partner/paramour who is now a dirty cop working both sides of the street for her own ends.
Her filmography is littered with blink and you miss her one offs in lots of things including Cloverfield.
I'm going to go ahead and call her our first buy early-ish of 2018.
I think we'll be see a lot more of her very soon.
