Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die! Today’s contestant is the Human Torch and Captain America, AKA: Chris Evans! Let’s see what he’s tweeting.
January 19th: “Well, well, well
@prattprattpratt, looks like our teams are going into battle. For the next 2 weeks, you are not my friend, you are my enemy”
Careful, Pratt. He has the powers of the Human Torch and Captain America. You only have the powers of Starlord and Andy.
January 25th: “hey
@prattprattpratt ….. ” https://twitter.com/ChrisEvans/status/559436145587548160/photo/1
Yeah, taking a bird as your mascot, probably not a good idea.
February 1st: “So much to say!! WHAT A GAME!!!!! Thank you to the Patriots organization for giving me more amazing memories than any fan could ever ask for”
Captain America, Patriots— I just got that.
I gotta say, that was a pretty good bet. You guys should do that next year.
February 1st: “coming there too! And lastly, I don’t think anyone can ever doubt the mental toughness of Tom Brady. Tough couple weeks, but he showed why”
Well, with a partially deflated ball, I guess…
Personally, I don’t think deflated balls or steroids or anything else should be banned. I’d like to see it turn into professional wrestling with chairs and surprise tackles from the audience.
February 3rd: “https://twitter.com/ChrisEvans/status/562504209984012289”
The should give Captain America better seats.
Aw, that’s nice.
February 12th: “I’m loving this snow!!”
Oh, sure. It’s easy when you can just make flame and clear your driveway.
February 17th: “appreciating the stillness ” https://twitter.com/ChrisEvans/status/567551637779410944
All I see is cold.
February 26th: “I don’t think Deptford Goth could write a bad song if he tried.”
Not my thing, but not an awful sound.
March 3rd: “Fun way to reveal these, Marvel! Enjoy! Less than 2 months away!
@Avengers #AgeOfUltron ” https://twitter.com/ChrisEvans/status/572798685324570625
Looks like a good flick.
March 7th: “I cant say it enough, Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything is AMAZING. It colors in my life in the most beautiful way. READ IT”
That does sound pretty good.
Those kids must’ve went nuts.
March 10th: “Look out, Twitter. You’re about to crash. Here comes
The Mighty Thor tweets! He tweeteth many things!
March 26th: “I’m on a bag of Doritos
Captain America bong and a Human Torch lighter and you’re all set.
March 29th: “Road trip! http://travel.viralnova.com/surreal-us-destinations/ …”

Creator: Jesse Moynihan
Format: Long Comic Book Pages
Updates: About Weekly
Genre: Science Fiction, Supernatural, Gods
Themes: Gods, Aliens, Mind Bending
Characters: Nommo, Mithras, various primitive humans
Archive: Begins January 14, 2009
Creator Jesse Moynihan also works on Adventure Time as a writer/storyboard artist. The comic actually drew me in before that, but after I read the “About” section I realized the similarities. If you’ve ever watch the more mind-bending episodes of Adventure Time with characters like the Cosmic Owl, that’s what Forming is like.
It takes place in Earth’s distance past and follows the visits of the main characters, who are powerful aliens. These aliens are worshipped as gods. Moynihan seems to be giving us the “real” story behind the various ancient god myths and their various kin. Like Adventure Time, it’s a mix of weird, epic science fiction and direct, modern dialogue. Moynihan tells the story without giving us the much larger back story, but that is clearly in the background of everything he writes.
Forming definitely has an Adventure Time look to the art, but less bright and cartoony. It’s more R-rated (if not, X-rated), but that’s not the focus of the story. It’s many layered reveals offers a lot to discover, whether it’s what character is tied to which ancient god or it’s some kind of half-dead alien holding a conversation with his other half-dead friend. Whether your a fan of Adventure Time or are just looking for a webcomic with something different to offer, you should check out Forming.
If your birthday is this week: You’ll have a birthday party at the carnival, which means all your presents will be deep fried.
Aries: You will get a great deal at a Circuit City on a new laptop, but get it home only to realize that you were shopping at the ghost of Circuit City. Your ghost laptop evaporates in the sun and the ghosts at the ghost of Circuit City insist on only offering store credit.
Taurus: The stars say there is no horoscope for you this week so go nuts.
Gemini: You’re feeling lucky this week, but Dirty Harry shoots you anyway.
Lemini: More people will say, “What the fuck is wrong with you?” than normal this week.
Cancer: It’s an exciting week for you. Risk will be your whiskey and danger your chaser! Mostly because after heavily drinking you try and drive home.

Sagittarius: Your bananas will ripen too quickly and you’ll have to throw them out.
Capricorn: You will win $2 on a $2 rub-off. What did you expect?
Aquarius: You’ll be chased by a hoard of very aggressive girl scouts selling cookies, buy some or they will hunt you down using their outdoor skills.
Pisces: Your puppy continues to not be potty trained, so you may kill a puppy this week. Just remember to do it outside.
