Friday LinkFrogging - 3/8/19
I've spent the past couple of weeks talking about how the universe was communicating with me.

It turns out the universe might know a thing or two.

I've dropped about 5 pounds since laying off the Cokes.

Thanks universe.

Of course, some weeks I don't need the universe to point me in the direction home.  No, some weeks the course is so simple to plot even a goof like me can steer the ship.

This, kids, was one of those weeks.  

What am I talking about?

Why I'm talking about the blinding klieg light that was this week's cheesecake selection.

I mean, seriously, was it likely to be anyone else?

Was I going to go retro, buy early or supporting when the first female-centric MCU movie opens this week?

Was it ever going to be anyone other than Brie Larson?

Nope, never.

Sure, she's been here before, but the arrival of Captain Marvel also signals the imminent arrival of Endgame and everything the MCU has been building to for a decade now.

Yes, I'm excited.

There are Kree.  There are Skrulls.  There is Nick Fury.  There is Monica Rambeau.  There is a cat.

Yes, the cat is a big deal.

Look, we live in a golden age for geek fare.  No concept is too far fetched to find itself onto a screen near you.

Captain Marvel signals the beginning of the end, but it could also signal something far larger and more spectacular for the MCU.

For that I say thank you Brie Larson.

Let's hit the links.
