Goodbye, Stan Lee

The comic book legend passed away this morning, November 12th, 2018. He had many fans, and we will all miss him.

The very first superhero movie I ever saw was Spider-Man with Tobey Maguire. That movie got me into the idea that superheroes were so cool, and that there's a lot of really cool things that people can do with superhero movies. The creator of that character that I enjoyed so much was the late Stan Lee.

Stan Lee didn't just create Spider-Man. He assisted in the creation of many other Marvel superheroes that are still well-known and loved today. The Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, X-Men, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, the Fantastic Four, and more are comics and characters that he helped to bring to life alongside Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Bill Everett, and more.

His cameos were something that all Marvel Cinematic Universe fans came to expect and enjoy. A few of my personal favorites are these:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVoadkAMP4k (this one was more heartwarming, especially since he created Spider-Man)

He was funny in interviews and these cameos, and he wrote such a sassy Spider-Man. There would be no funny end credit scenes in the MCU if not for him and his co-writers creating these hilarious and human characters.

"Heroes show us we don't need to be perfect to do what's right. It's not about living without fear, but facing injustice. It's not about being powerful but finding your calling when you least expect it. They show us it's okay to be vulnerable, no matter how tough you are because even though they're heroes, they're still human." -Stan Lee voiceover, Defenders Trailer

Stan Lee was famous for doing what he loved, and most people don't get to do what they love for a living, ever. He did what he loved and did it well, and became one of the most recognizable people in comic books and cinema. He made a difference in entertainment for so many people, and will for generations to come. While he may have passed away this morning, he is immortal in our hearts.

Excelsior.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."

In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
