I participated in Lefty Brown’s Mixed Bag CD circle this month. If you are wondering exactly what this is…a group of participants is assembled. Each person makes their own mix CD and then sends a copy to everyone else in the group. You can have a theme or just make … Continue Reading The Mixed Bag…
Is absolute stupidity. Seriously, what is the problem here?! Of course, it was from California, and we all know from TV that California is loaded with crazy people. But really, does the victim being a stripper make this acceptable?!
Apparently, Warner Bros has commissioned a script for a Justice League movie.
Last night on the local news the weather man mentioned that snow was possible. But when asked if we would see snow here in Minnesota the response was…”We won’t know until it’s here.” I wish my job could play it that fast and loose.
Okay…Heidi over at the Beat is a bit less paranoid than I. And I have been thinking…it is really unfair for me to assume this means the worst. He may approach the magazine with a different attitude from FHM(btw, FHM is closing up shop in the U.S.). Part of me … Continue Reading More From the New Hire for Wizard…
My friend Lefty Brown created this Meme. Normally, I do not really participate in Meme’s, not out of a dislike, but just a lack of commitment they sometimes require. It’s not unlike my attitude towards having kids of my own. Anyways, this one was real simply. Put the iPod at … Continue Reading A Soundtrack to Life
This ought to fill people with hope. Wizard announced their new editor in chief. He’s come from FHM Magazine (and apparently he is also a former Wizard staffer).
I thought I would point to this interview with Brian K. Vaughan. Vaughan is one of my favorite writers. He is about to end his forty some issue run on Runaways. The interview is a nice read(and no references to dead neighbors-YAY!). And in the “harsh, but needed to be … Continue Reading After Bashing Wizard…
I stumbled onto this interesting little web page which explores John Byrne’s treatment of women in his comics.
Okay. To those who don’t read comics and are unfamiliar with Wizard…Wizard is a comic book focused magazine that started in the 90’s. It is the only survivor of a small glut of magazines that took the heavy focus on the main stream (though it staked it’s claim on Image … Continue Reading Wizard Magazine, Making Comics Sexy
I watched Jesus Camp today. Throughout the film, I could not help but think that the people in that film would think I was not a Christian…or at least that I am a terrible one.
I’ve now rejoined the ranks of the two job class. I am working at a video store now. One of the perks? Renting next week’s new releases. This Tuesday? My recommendation is the Prestige. What a fine film. Not a tremendous shock, as Christopher Nolan makes good movies. And he has … Continue Reading Oh Oh Oh It’s Magic!
Or “Kara, you ignorant slut” (Thanks, SNL) I was contemplating the potential ways to tell the story of rebellious teen that might have worked better. And then I read this, and it got me thinking… Kara is a teen from another culture. And I am thinking (mind you, I am … Continue Reading Thoughts on Supergirl.
Huh. It should be noted…jerking off to Frank Cho drawings of Spider-Woman does not count as “experience.”
I want to like this show. I am not sure why. But I really do. Wait, I know why. Patrick Warburton, Megyn Price and David Spade. Warburton is genius. I can’t recall a role where he didn’t make me laugh. Megyn Price is just plain funny, and makes a great … Continue Reading The Rules of Engagement…
