Something has me slightly mift… Okay, I’m a bit more than mift, I’m irked! A great man died this past week. A man who not only inspired me but millions, perhaps even billions of people not only in the United States but around the Globe. His name? Stan Lee: the creator of Marvel Comics.
Stan Lee is known for writing The Amazing Spider Man, Uncanny X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, & Silver Surfer. These works lead to an animated cartoon series of the X-Men during the 90s, several video games, television series, & movies.
For the most part I tend to stick to writing poetry that eventually become mixed media art creations on Instagram. I also typically avoid politics.
So what or should I say who has me so distraught readers? I’m glad you asked! Comedian & HBO talk show host, Bill Maher. I conveniently added the link to his blog so that you read it for yourself.
I was upset & sad to hear of Stan Lee’s death, not emotionally torn by any means mind you, but when I learned of Bill Maher’s commentary I was pissed.
It’s not entirely surprising or shocking how incensitive Bill can be if you’ve ever watched his show. Personally I would find it quite comedic if HBO found a “new rule” for a contract review, resulting in the cancelation his show.
Rest in peace Stan Lee. Thank you for creating art & some amazing characters that overcome precarious situations. Heaven is a little bit brighter with you in it.
