Shock and strut went pretty well, not a hard repair, definitely worth saving the extra $180 on top of the $120 part to get a mechanic to do it. Now her car actually has some kind of suspension. I’m sure I need to do the back struts, but I’ll put that off for now.
Cleared the check engine light that she didn’t tell me had come on. Now I just have to reattach the rear view mirror and this pos should pass inspection.
Still haven’t figured out the mystery chug that I have thought I have fixed twice now but really haven’t. Too many parts and too many conflicting opinions later and it still sputters out around a quarter of a tank.
Amazon Is Reportedly Bringing Back ‘The Tick’ With Patrick Warburton
There’s no such thing as a series finale anymore. No matter how obscure, no matter how unnecessary, all it takes is decent Nick at Nite rerun ratings for someone to decide, “What the world needs is Stavros.” At least Full House ran for eight successful seasons, unlike the late, great The Tick, which FOX cancelled after only nine episodes in 2001-2002. But now it’s being revived on Amazon.com, with Patrick Warburton donning the familiar blue costume, because $$$uperheroes are so in right now. - Josh Kurp,UPROXX
I hope I’m not the only person excited that the Tick is returning with Patrick Warburton. I do hope they recast the rest of the characters though and put more of an emphasis on the Tick and Arthur. One of the biggest problems with last live action series is that too many of the plots were centered on Lady Liberty and Bat-Manuel.
I think that’s because there is just not much nuance you can fit into a character like The Tick, and Fox execs probably thought people wouldnt take a show about a guy in a big, blue tick costume seriously, which they wouldn’t but really shouldn’t anyway. The cartoon was pretty much perfect though, so I would rather they just bring that back because why do we need a live action Tick, when we could have that again? Though I’m sure Ben Edlund will write and produce the new series too, and Patrick Warburton is a perfect fit,
"this is not my beautiful white house!"

The Man Who Colored The Marvel Universe:
Stan Goldberg (1932-2014)
Marvel colorist Stan Goldberg, who created the color schemes of the costumes of Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and dozens of others, died yesterday, at the age of 82. Mark Evanier has more information here.
I wrote briefly, in Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, about two of Stan’s contributions to the Marvel mythos.
On The Fantastic Four:
And although they remained unmasked (in another break from comic-book convention, they were going to keep their identities public), at the urging of letter-writing fans they soon had snappy blue uniforms. “Jack gave them this long underwear with the letter ‘4’ on their chest,” said Stan Goldberg, who designed the color schemes of the Marvel comics. “I made the ‘4’ blue and kept a little area around it white, and then when the villains came in—the villains get the burnt umbers, dark greens, purples, grays, things like that—they can bounce off it.” The blast of colorful heroics against a murky background world immediately set Fantastic Four apart from everything else on the newsstand.
The grand melodrama was offset by Lee’s snappy patter, Ditko’s stunning costume design, and, once again, the primary-color palette choices of Stan Goldberg, who selected for Spider-Man’s costume a combination of cherry red and dark cobalt (in deliberate contrast to the more vivacious azure of the Fantastic Four).
Goldberg also drew non-superhero comics for Marvel in its Timely incarnation, and was the longtime artist for Marvel’s Millie the Model series. In the late 1960s he began drawing for various series published by Archie Comics.
Harvey tries to have a serious discussion on Letterman and this is the stunt he pulls.
Probably going to be spending my entire day changing a shock and strut. I really hope I can actually pull this off.
