So I’ve been employed by Wal-Mart for a few days now. I haven’t started overnight shifts, but I will tomorrow. I’m told night shifts go faster.
I’ll be a stocker, although I’m not sure what department. I’ve already worked grocery.
The people I work with are alright. There’s a man named Aaron with real messed up teeth who plays the drums and listens to progressive metal and he’s pretty cool. He kind of subverts your expectations. I like him.
There’s a guy named Peter who’s the friendliest person I’ve ever met, but he doesn’t work overnight so I probably won’t see him again.
I haven’t met the overnights except for Aaron yet. There’s a young, handsome Wilhelm Defoe looking kid who’s pretty cool who helped me learn how everything is organized.
I get paid more than I’ve ever been paid at any job and the breaks are plenty.
I want to go to school already. I find out who my roommates are in two weeks give or take.
I saw Guardians of the Galaxy tonight. It’s great, but what I really noticed is how many visual cues it takes from the Star Wars prequels. Like, an insane amount. People don’t like them, but basically every modern Sci-Fi film rips them off in some way. The whole series is a defining asterisk on the genre.
But I guess they kind of addressed that in the coda with
Howard the Duck.
I though the Collector was gonna be a bigger deal than that.
I saw the part of the Scoobby Doo movie and freaked out when I saw Linda Cardellini. She nails it from what I saw. The problem with that movie is it takes nothing but the characters from the original series. There’s no spooky tone or nothing. Just a weird group and a talking dog. Also that whole series is a subversion of the supernatural. There were never any ghosts, but that didn’t stop everything from being spooky as hell.
