Welcome to Thor's Day!
Thor's Day Heroes is the newest feature here at Mik's Minis, gently replacing LEGO Thursdays. I had to stick with Thursday of course, and how serendipitous that the first of a new feature falls on the first of the month? I couldn't have planned it any better.
What is Thor's Day? Well, originally the Greeks named the days of the week after their Gods. The Romans followed suit shortly thereafter substituting their own Gods, and then eventually the Germanic people got in on the gig using their Gods. Thor, well being Thor, got Thursday.
Thor's Day Heroes is my "who's who" in all things relating to the many personalities out there that run in the circles we all enjoy; movies, books, games, and the like. Kind of like the age-old question, "What five books would you bring with you to a deserted island?" but mine is more along the lines of, "Who would you take with you on an intergalactic adventure?"
Who do I like in the movies? What are my favorite characters? Directors? If I were to be a minion under the employ of a villain, who would it be? I bet you and I have some of the same candidates.
Well, all that and more begins pretty much now. This isn't just show and tell, what keeps me doing this blog is the interaction with you, the reader. There's never a comment unanswered, and that even includes the spambots. So let me know what you think of my choices each week as well, and welcome to...Thor's Day Heroes.
