DC Universe’s Titans

I saw the first episode of Titans over the weekend and liked it. It’s updated the team for 2018, which upsets a lot of the old school fans, but I don’t think the 1980s origins would translate well to the present. Another stick in people’s craws is the series is Not For Children. There’s a lot of swearing and bleeding and adult themes, which is probably why there’s no Teen in the title. It’s not gratuitous, though; it’s all related to the story. More mature themes would go along with more mature writing, since this isn’t written for kids, it’s written for adults who can think at an adult level. It doesn’t dumb down the storytelling, which will probably lose viewers expecting all the answers to be easy. The best analogy I can think of is it’s Watchmen’s style applied to the mainstream DC Universe.

Coyoty eats Sour Watermelon Peeps (so you don’t have to).

“Ingredients: Sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, fumaric acid, citric acid, pectin, contains less than 0.5% of the following: Natural and artificial flavor, Yellow #5 Lake, Red #40, Yellow #5 (tartrazine), potassium sorbate (a preservative), Blue #1 Lake, Blue #1, carnauba wax. Gluten free.” I don’t see any watermelon.

They taste like they look, very artificial and as unnaturally flavored as they are colored.

Fumaric acid is used to make them sour. It’s produced in bacteria, fungi, lichen, Iceland moss, and human skin that’s exposed to sunlight. If you don’t have these Peeps, you might get the same satisfaction by going out in the sun naked and licking yourself.

Carnauba wax is used as a car wax as well as a food additive. It’s a floor wax. It’s a dessert topping. It’s a pill and candy coating. It’s a furniture polish. It makes things shiny. It makes things that aren’t good enough to eat look good enough to eat.
