When it comes to eyewear, there seem to be two (you should excuse the expression) frames of thought: The futuristic visor, ala Geordi la Forge or the throwback steampunk goggles.  One has an air of smooth science fiction, implying heads-up displays or additional vision options, while the other offers protection when you inevitably blow up your luh-BOAR-a-tory, Randus-style.  Either way, we’re leagues beyond a pair of Oakleys or the limited selection of frames at my local eye doc’s, leading to today’s facial query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has long wanted a super-cool x-shaped visor like The Mimic, greatest X-Man of them all, wore back in the day, asking: Visor or Goggles?

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.
