Normally, the MS-QOTD leaps from some forgotten portion of my brain, likely the same area that remembers the name of the actress from ‘Dances With Wolves’ (Mary McDonnell) or the redhead I crushed on in eleventh grade (Cyndiiii… sigh).  Today’s query comes from Tumblr by way of Twitter, which is to say I don’t have a Tumblr because I’m over 40, but many younger associates provide links to its ridiculously bass-ackwards interface, graciously keeping me from having to sound like my Grandma loading a CD player.  It’s a pretty pointed query, one for which you can all blame Faithful Spoilerite Mela…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would not be surprised to find Ashley Williams in a Supergirl costume and a Devo hat, swooping in to destroy all that ever was, asking: If Gozer the Gozerian asked you to choose the form of the Earth’s destructor, what fresh hell would tower over New York City as you meekly admitted ‘I couldn’t help it, it just popped in there?’

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    Brother says “Either Galactus or Robert Kirkman, for no real reason actually”

    For me, it’s Marvin the Paranoid Android. Mainly because when told “Don’t Think” I remember that one scene from the movie.. Because that’s how my brain works, everything reminds me of something.

    An army of beautiful Asian women in naughty schoolgirl costumes, but only because that is pretty much what is on my mind 24/7.
