Notes from the Kraken: September 18th 2016

In All, Notes by David

Welcome again to We Have Always Live the Kraken, a pop culture blog transmitted directly to you from the belly of the beast. Here in the Notes we’ll show you this week’s posting schedule, but first, a little Seafood for Thought.

The Emmys kind of surprised... I mean for the Emmys.

The Emmys were kind of surprising… I mean, for the Emmys.

The 2016 Emmys happened, and Game of Thrones and Veep continued their reigns on top of the dramatic and comedic worlds respectively. The People V. OJ Simpson really made it clear that Ryan Murphy is now the king of non-GOT TV. Tatiana Maslany finally got her moment, and Rami Malek may have cemented himself as the next Bryan Cranston or Jon Hamm. Also I did a live blog, and you can read it here! Enjoy the week!

From the depths of the Kraken, here is what we are bringing you this week.

Monday: Nothing new. The fall of the content was swift and brutal. Alas, dear content we barely knew ye.

Tuesday: If the content could speak, it would weep because there is nothing to see here.

Wednesday: Silence reigns on the Kraken as we remember The Fall of the Eldest One. Long may the ancient one be remembered, and in honor of his majesty, there is nothing new to look at today.

Thursday: Guest contributor Matt Morris returns with another exploration through video gaming’s Hidden Levels. This month, he’s talking Shu Takumi’s lesser-known masterpiece, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective.

Friday: The Friday entity formerly known as “content” is now called an unpronounceable symbol, which roughly translated means “no content.”

Saturday: Baturdays continues with a brand new comic! With Batman and Superman becoming more popular, DC decided to capitalize by selling a big, 60+-page coming featuring a Superman story, a Batman story, and a bunch of junk in between. Sure, issue one is called World’s Best, not World’s Finest, but they’ll get there. For now, enjoy the Batman story from World’s Best #1, “The Witch and the Manuscript of Doom.”

Catch of the Week:

Each and every week the residents here in the Kraken will offer one recommendation for the week that we think you all would enjoy. It might be a movie. It might be a book. Who knows? This is your… Catch of the Week.

Keskel: This week I recommend the Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness game as not only a good game, but also the canon continuation of an intricately constructed anime.

David: I have suggested reading Squirrel Girl in the past, but she has existed prior to her current awesome series by Ryan North, and as luck would have it you can now read some of these past adventures in The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl & the Great Lake Avengers. Enjoy her past awesomeness, including how she became the only person to definitely beat Doctor Doom in combat!

That’s it for this week. Jetpack testing will be held throughout the week, so remember to wear your helmets and have those waiver forms ready so you can be the next doo–I mean, lucky tester.
