With the newest Avengers Movie coming out last week and setting records for most money for an opening weekend I have been on a super hero fix lately.
Watching both captain America and Thor in order to prepare myself for the Avengers.
After watching both of these movies in 2 nights many feelings came to my mind.
First off the fact that Director and Producers had the foresight of adding all of those extra scenes and tying in the SHIELD into all the movies. Having the smallest references that I have only caught on my 2nd time around. For instance in THOR when he is going to retrieve the hammer and SHIELD sends someone to shoot him from above, the guy grabs a bow and arrow. This happens to be HAWKEYE from the new Avengers movie who is not privileged yet to have his own movie.
It actually brilliant how they did this all. But besides for that the feeling that you get inside whilw watching these movies make you feel like a little kid again. When the world is so big yet you feel like you can do anything you want. Watching Captain America I couldn't help but want to be him in every way, but then I watched thor the next night and would rather be him.
These films are just incredible.
In comparison we look at the latest few DC movies mainly Batman and Superman. These movies are great(well superman was OK) but the Batman movies have been great.
HOWEVER in no way in those movies did I wish I was them. In fact some ppl (Raab) wished they were the joker instead of Batman. This is something that I have noticed about the DC vs Marvel rivalry of late.
My vote is that lately the Marvel Characters have been portrayed as the people I would like to be.
Either way I am a big super hero fan and can't wait to watch the Avengers movie.
Let me know what your opinions are on this matter. and who your favorite super hero of late has been.
PS. hope everyone is ready for me to rock their worlds again this summer. the more controversial posts will be coming dont worry.

Not sure where Ive been for the last month or so since my last post, but I guess its just a summer thing when times are changing. people moving, people getting married, people leaving jobs or getting new ones. Summer is definitely a time for change and experimenting. People go on vacations to all different places in the world. Europe, Asia and even Canada. I know it sounds crazy but I actually spent a week in the Vancouver area. It happens to be gorgeous and with a little experimenting of my own there, for those of you who haven't stalked me on facebook, I went bungee jumping. It was AMAZING. Some others tried new things when traveling alone in Asia or traveling with friends to Europe, or maybe even having to have emergency oral surgery in south America.
Summer is just a happy time usually for all, with tons of weddings left and right.
Yesterday I think I made the biggest step to becoming a new man. You can take from that whatever you may want, but truthfully this step was to buy myself a Baseball Glove.
Now this may sound crazy, How could this be the biggest moment of the summer??
well I haven't had a glove since I was in little league, probably more than 10 years ago. Although i don't play baseball often, this is obvious since i haven't had a glove, I think it is a staple in being a MAN.
When it comes down to it, if people are getting together for a catch, in a park or on the beach and you dont have a glove, you just feel like a loser. Even if you suck(which obviously I dont) you feel lame when your the guy asking to borrow a glove.
Secondly, although i dont have a son of my own(at least to my knowledge, there was that one ocean city girl) when it comes down to it, A man needs to have a glove so that he can teach his kids to play. Its just a staple of manhood.
It is for these reasons that I am now a happy man, with a great summer winding down.
I hope everyone else can look back at this summer and see that they accomplished soo many things that will make them a better person. If not you still have a little bit of time until labor day to make this the best summer yet. Go ahead, road trip to canada to bungee jump, tryout for american idol, or wtvr floats your boat(maybe even buy a boat).

Obviously What happens upstate stays upstate but certain highlights can definitely be used to brag about how awesome the weekend was.
First off I want to thank Joey and yaakov for lending us their houses upstate to tear into pieces and have the sickest time in the world. (also thanks to the frucht family and uncle Dave)
For those of you followers that understood my post about the MTV Rivals Challenge, I put together a similar game for the weekend pairing up a guy and girl on each team.
Pts system as follows
1st place of each event 5
2nd place 3
Davening with a minyan 3
Davening without a minyan 1
Putting on tefillin Sunday morning 2 (1 pt bonus if they are your own)
Same sex hookups - guys -20
Same sex hookups - girls 20
First girl to fart in front of guy 5
2nd girl to fart in front of guy -5
Sleeping in the other sex's house 3
Vomiting from drinking -5
Making someone else cry 5
Pranking someone while sleeping 3
getting pranked while sleeping -3
Being the first person to go to sleep for the night -5
Last 2 people to go to sleep 5
Getting told by jared to watch your language 1
Being called out for FOMO -1
Getting yelled at by Joey for doing something bad in the house 1
Shomer Negiah High five(both people involved) 1
Now there is Definitely an argument as to who actually won but what matters is that this was a ton of fun.
hours of basketball on shabbat, Shuffleboard, sat night BBQ at Adiras where Jared broke everything, Mud sliding in the rain, water polo in the rain, sunday night(we can leave it at that), potato launching - at night, during the day, while drunk, shooting at targets - mini keg and me hitting the lamp on first try. Raab chugging pickle juice, the ass off, many many BBQs, late night kumzitz.
I think that gets most of it, and if you want more details about what actually went down odds are you arent getting them until the videos and pics hit the web.
Til next time we take over Four Star Estates and wage war on Vacation Village with potato launchers.

I will make sure to post all the incredible things that I will be doing to make everyone else jealous.
The first great summer adventure happened yesterday, when I went against all my rules and went jogging with other people. Aaron, Caroline and Myself decided to go running along the Hudson on the greenway.
Let me first say if you have never done this, YOU MUST. Its simply amazing. The view is incredible and when the weather is great, its as close to perfection as you can get in Manhattan.
After starting in the heights we had no goal in mind, just to get in shape for Warrior Dash. After realizing we had reached fairway, we were like hey wanna just see how far we can go and then just subway it back up.
Then on a crazier idea, we decided to go all the way to the UWS and go for dinner then head back on the subway. Thank god Aaron had his credit card in his shoe cuz otherwise we would have been helpless without any phones or money.
After reaching 90th street we went to Cafe Viva where we ran into some friends, and really just had an awesome day.
The feeling you get when doing such a great spontaneous run, and then spontaneous fun, is just pure bliss.
So for all those getting ready to have a fun summer just remember this key point.
Spontaneity is the key to fun. Just go for it and you will have a good time.
Looking forward to bragging about more fun things this Summer
Also I destroyed Aaron at the end when we sprinted up the hill at 90th. Sorry but I had to go there.
