Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men


This would usually be a skip week, but thanks to some generous donors to Equality Florida, Hawk Talk is back! This week’s topic was chosen by Blindseer0.


  1. I’m mildly surprised the baby announcement wasn’t used in a “What?!?”, but I’ve never had a good sense of social appropriateness so maybe that would have been tacky.
    Congrats on the impending parenthood, Jay! It’s a real life Siege Perilous; you don’t know what’s on the other side; all you can know is that you’ll come out the other side changed in ways you couldn’t possibly foresee.

  2. B’sha’ah tovah, Jay!

    As for things that bring me joy: cooking big meals for people (it’s why I love the late fall/winter holidays), live theatre (especially when, like Jay alluded to, it’s doing things that can only be done in theatre…and also especially when it’s a really fresh take on an old play or just a musical with an epic 11 oclock number or Act 1 finale), cuddling with my dog, discovering something new in somewhere I’ve lived for a while.

  3. Congratulations, Jay!

    Speaking of ’80s music, Duran Duran’s new album “Future Past” has a lot of songs about longing, and one called “More Joy!,” and their concerts are wonderful group experiences.

    And I love listening to your rapport! <3
