This broke my heart.
I finally got around to completing Uncanny X-Force! 16 days after it first published, no less. I kept up with it up until the end of The Dark Angel Saga, and then I decided to wait until the next big story arc to end before continuing. This turned out to be The Final Execution Saga, which also turned out to be the longest and final arc of the series.
I’m done with my Uncanny X-Force marathon and I say with zero hesitation that it is solid, you guys. It’s supreme.

Nobody likes letting go. From our earliest moments, from birth ‘til we’re six feet under, our instinct is to grab, grip, cling. To a finger, a bottle, a best friend. To a faded, old racing form. Sometimes we hold on for dear life to the very things that keep us from actually living it. But that comes with an upside. It’s the way we feel when we finally let go. The trick, I guess, is to not find a way around the curveballs life serves up but to live with them in halfway happy, uneasy alliance. And to search for new things to cling to, and when you finally find them, to hang on just as tight. And around and around we go, holding on until the time comes to say goodbye. And like it or not, ready or not, you have to accept one universal truth: Life is messy. Always. And for all of us. But a wise man once said, “Maybe messy is what you need.” And I think he might be right.

“Northern Lights” by Kate Boy. Here’s some ultra-pop for you. Thank you Sweden for being the one true source for reliable pop music.
Oh god just help me make it through the next two days.
Okay, as a fan of Homeland and X-Men, I just felt the need to say that:
Essentially, they were right.
“Destino” is a collaboration between Salvador Dali and Walt Disney. A brilliant partnership of artistic talent, this captivating masterpiece was a long time coming. The production of this animated short film started over half a century ago and only completed and released in 2003. With the accompanying music provided by Armando Dominguez and Dora Luz, this is one moving and surreal piece of art.
One thought that percolated my mind as I watched this: Disney’s lost princess, anyone?
I am thankful for my friends and friends that can put thoughts and emotions to words so beautifully and in ways that I’d never be able to.
