Over the span of three days, I consumed the entirety of Netflix’s first contribution to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Daredevil. Welcome to the darker, edgier, more realistic(-ish) corner of the MCU. It’s no less awesome than the rest of it. It ties into the main Marvel Cinematic Universe only in so far as one of […]
<br /> If you are in Washingon D.C., get to the Smithsonian’s Air & Space Museum. This exhibit alone is worth the price of admission.

Imagine the offices of Mad Magazine or The Onion being stormed by gunmen, killing off many of their most biting satirists. This is effectively what happened in France this week, when the popular comedy newspaper, Charlie Hebdo lost many of their top cartoonists, in such an attack.
