Cleaning the apartment now because it needs to be done and the building management is doing pest inspections in all of the units. Technically started cleaning a couple of days ago, but now everything needs to be done by tonight. A good a time as any, but going to be behind on my translations and some post-con work I have to do. ;o; Teh sad.
But anyway, random thought!
So I follow Dante Basco on Facebook and tumblr now because I discovered he had them and once upon a time when I was like 8 I had a crush on him because of Hook. (Robin Williams ;o;) True facts, one of my favorite childhood movies and going to see it was one of the best memories I had of bonding with my Dad post-divorce, so yeah.
Anyway, so his birthday’s tomorrow and his site has shirts for sale and one of my friends on FB who also just discovered he had a website shared his t-shirt sale from this year and is also sad because we’re broke and have no money right now. I actually really wanted last year’s shirts too, but I had just moved so I was SUPER POOR.
Too many tangents! Too tired from cleaning! Stay focused!
Anywho, all this to say that looking at the shirts and name, it suddenly occurred to me among all of the red and black that perhaps Basco ta Jolokia from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger is a reference to him? I mean, just saying his monster/armored form for sure does remind me of Rufio and it’s a pirate sentai and he’s Marvelous’ main rival kind of like how Rufio was Peter Pan’s rival only Basco ta Jolokia was kind of a lot more of a douchebag. A favorite villain for sure for many, but a villain no less. His plain clothes outfit is also kind of Peter Pan-y as well.
Anyway random thought. Back to cleaning now.
