WELCOME! Cayce McCarthy - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Journalist and Contributing Writer to the F.E.M.M FAMILY
Hey there Femm readers and welcome to my Arts and Entertainment blog. I’ve decided to take this time to introduce myself to you and what some of my blogs will be. First off, I would like you guys to have some background information about myself. My name is Cayce McCarthy and I’ve lived in Northwest Florida for twenty-three years of my life. I have always been interested in a writing career and when I was in high school I joined my high school’s newspaper staff. I decided to become an entertainment journalist since I love movies, music, books, and fashion. I stayed with my newspaper staff for three years and then went on to the University of South Carolina where I got my degree in English.
Enough about myself though, here is what you can expect from my blogs. To start I’m a huge Marvel movie fan. Now I know what you’re thinking, what about the comics right? I do love the comics, unfortunately, I haven’t even begun to read a seventh of them. The most information from the comics I know I’ve learned from more knowledgeable friends, the Marvel website, or fan powered websites such Marvel wiki and Comic Vine. But I’ve been following the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) since the first Iron-Man film came out in 2008. You can expect me to write articles on the upcoming films such as Deadpool, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Venom.
For those of you who are die-hard fans wondering who my favorites are and what team I’m on here’s what you need to know. Iron Man is my favorite Avenger. I love his story line the most and have always been a fan of superheroes without powers who turn their natural talents to become heroes. I’m team ‘Revengers only because I’ve always hated the Civil War plot line and when it comes to the accords I see where both sides are coming from.
My other favorites for heroes are as follows: Spider-Man, Lady Sif, Wasp from the Avengers Academy app, Elektra, Nakia, and Lady Thor. For the X-men, my favorites are Wolverine, Rouge, and Deadpool. My favorite villains are Loki, Magneto, and Doc Connors aka the Lizard. I typically love the villains who end up becoming the anti-hero or still have clear signs of humanity in them. I believe that stems from my love of Darth Vader and his story-line in Episode 6.
Other things I enjoy are obviously Star Wars, Lord of the Rings/Hobbit, Sherlock, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, books, and TV shows. I’m also a big fan of music like country, classical, rock, and pop. Another thing I enjoy and will love sharing with you guys are some YouTube animation channels out there like Domics, Simon’s Cat, HISHE, and even some short films done by computer animators as well. I even live in a great area that has loads of events going on all the time, so I can’t wait to start this awesome journey with you all!
