An Elven Update and WandaVision

  1. Beautiful work on the elk. Your patience is paying dividends.

    Mrs. GG and I are at the halfway point with Wandavision. I like it more than she does but then I enjoy all the tv show nostalgia that is largely lost on her given that she rarely saw the tv shows it reflects. Darcy is indeed annoying. Overall I can not see this ending well but I am curious to see what happens next. It is a joy to read your thoughts on it.

    Congrats for closing on the condo!

    1. Nostalgia is a big part of WandaVision I think and truthfully, I only felt nostalgia in the earlier episodes because I Love Lucy and Bewitched are timeless and I remember when I was young watching them as my parents and grandparents could pass them down to me. I was glad I watched the entire series even if I wavered a bit near where you are now. Happy to share my thoughts and I will look forward to yours once you finish it!

  2. Congratulations on the closing of the Condo Jeff, and I hope the move goes smoothly.
    The Elk is looking great, and great work on the NMM, can be very tricky and your pulling it off seamlessly.
    Enjoyed WandaVision, and can see why they released that one first, with all the development of characters that will be influential in the phase 4 movies, sorry to say your likely to see more of Darcy !

    1. Thanks, Dave! I’ve been practicing NMM for a while now and starting to get more confident and comfortable with it. Each mini is a different challenge with it too so it keeps things interesting 🙂 Glad to hear you also liked WandaVision and unfortunately, I agree. Somebody clearly likes Darcy even if it isn’t me! 🙂

  3. Looking so good man. I’ve been meaning to give WandaVision a go. I have three very close mates (we are like brothers) and they all love anything Marvel. I’m a lot more selective so it’ll be interesting to see if I’ll enjoy it.

    1. Cheers, mate! I didn’t know much of anything about Scarlet Witch or Vision and still enjoyed it but I don’t think it has as broad of appeal as other Marvel content so it will be interesting to see how you get on with it.

  4. I do enjoy most of the Marvel Universe, even if it is tainted by the unclean Disney virus, but I couldn’t make it through the first episode of Wandavision. Those old Lucy and bewitched and alike never appealed to me. I don’t think I’ll miss the show, as my comic book days never strayed far from FF, Spidey and X-men.

    Good luck with the move and such, our house hunting adventure begins at the end of this month with the close on our old house!

    1. I can understand that. The first episode of WandaVision stays fairly close to sitcoms and then each episode afterwards gets further away from it. I think that is the problem with how ambitious/unconventional it is too. Some people will like it and others will not.

      Thank you and good luck with your move as well. I already look forward to getting it over with as I’m sure you do too!

  5. It’s looking great so far. I’m glad your not tired of painting it yet when it’s only one fourth complete. Think you’ll be able to finish before the move? I imagine it might be hard to pick up where you left off if you had to pack it all away.

    You make me feel old. No idea what WandaVision is or who those characters are. I used to be cool. Most of my Disney Plus viewing is a show called Bluey with the kids. That is until the Mandolorian comes out again. 😀

    1. Thanks and unfortunately, there is zero chance that I will get it done before the move. I can’t even get the elk done in that time, let alone the rider. This project has probably two months worth of painting left in it, if I had to guess. I will definitely take a break or two on this one just to make sure I don’t get sick of it.

      I figure that my 30’s is the last decade where I can stay hip (relatively speaking) so I do what I can. To be fair, Scarlet Witch and Vision are B or maybe C-list Marvel characters so you’re in good company there!

    1. Cheers, mate! It will take me a while so you’ll be seeing a lot more of the elk in the coming months, I imagine. Everyone might even get sick of seeing this project but only time will tell on that 😀

  6. Enjoying your progress on the elk, seems to be coming together very well. Watched the first two episodes of Wandavision but since I’m not really a Marvel person I felt there were too many references to things I weren’t familiar with to keep watching.
    Good luck on your move!

    1. I can totally understand that. WandaVision is definitely not a “mass market” show like most Marvel content is and I think people will have very different reactions to it. I wanted to share my thoughts on it for that reason. Thanks for the kind words and with any luck, I’ll be settled in the new place soon!

  7. The Elk is looking goooood!
    I watched WandaVision all the way through, but I had to force myself.
    I didn’t enjoy it at all really. It was very much aimed at an American audience and I didn’t get the references or the humour.
    I found it very predictable and, well, boring. Even the last episode was a bit of an anticlimax and it was the only one with any action!
    Falcon and Winter Soldier was much, much better, and really kept in with style of the MCU… Looking forward to Loki now.

    1. Thank you! Yeah, its a bloody shame when the colonists force their culture on others, innit? 😉 In all seriousness, the show isn’t that funny even to Americans so don’t worry about that. The other points you raise are all weaknesses of the show. The larger plot is a bit too predictable and I think the way it ends isn’t going to be satisfactory for everyone too. WandaVision certainly is not what most people will probably expect it to be and I think there will be quite a few people who feel let down by it but I’m glad to not be one of them. I think I will start Falcon and Winter Soldier tonight so we’ll see how I get on with it 🙂
