Gatchaman, love it!
Ya’know what I’m not the biggest anime fan, but I did watch this as a kid.
Shit this was the first anime I watched. I didn’t even know it was from Japan.
I’m dating myself, but I remember this show when it was Battle of the Planets.I found out about the re-dubs and re-edits years later.For some reason the one they called Eagle Riders actually made me mad..and why did they feel the need to change character’s names each time they redubbed it? To trick ppl into thinking it’s a different show?
Also what do you guys think of the Gatchaman update they did a few years back?I caught a few eps on Hulu and thought it was ok.If I was still younger I would’ve LOVED it. (that’s a compliment)
I remember this show as G-force. I never thought of it this way but is was the first anime I watched as well. I never thought of it as anime when I was a kid . Good stuff!!!
I have been quite preoccupied with this game for the last few days. Some of the best female protagonists in pop culture today. Fuck the haters.
Oh so the brotha’s afro gots to be a bird’s nest.
But the brotha is pretty bad ass in this game D. Ya, his fro is a nest but he is a great character.
I’ve played past version of Final Fantasy, had an room mate when I was in the service Native American guy name Sixtoe the fucker has a hardcore gamer!
Got me gaming for a little while, but never really stayed with it.
Yeah I had other things too do like making babie in multiple continents
Whoa…that was awesome. Never heard that. I liked how it synced up with the opening toward the end.
cWw open thread? lol
comic women warriors
I feel insulted for being a man right now 😉
Ummm….ya. That’s what I meant. 🙂
Must hand it to ya partner 😀
Hey theres an idea!
I’m on it!
Anyone else think that Marvel is trying to create their own “trinity” and I think I found the proof.
Marvel ALWAYS copies DC
What is up with Thor’s arm?
I’m gonna say it’s Alex Ross just being himself by only painting the original versions of character’s and not doing an readjustments to their re-designs, that or the freaky veins on his muscles?
I do find it kind of funny that Alex Ross put Thor in the same spot that Wonder Woman is in.
Why is Scarlet Witch even in there? If anything it should be She-Hulk or at least Jean Grey. I don’t get it. The fact that there is no definitive female hero at Marvel is just fucking sad.
I would rather prefer She-Hulk, Ms.Marvel, or Black Widow to Jean Grey at any second of the day or nite.
Ms. Marvel or Black Widow would should be there. Jean Grey should be considered an icon. Marvel needs to treat their female characters better.
You guys recall after House of M when Ms. Marvel was supposed to be getting that BIG push to become Marvel’s icon. She got her own book, joined the Avengers, started poping up different places and then…nothing. She’s a B-Lister again.
Well that’s Marvel for ya, they don’t give a crap about women, cause they probably all had bad high school ecpierences with girls, so they take there anger out in their comics, SHAMEFUL!
Storm is pretty much the most recognizable female character at Marvel with She-hulk and Invisible woman a distance 2nd and 3rd.
Storm should have her own book by now.
I agree, but it would never last.
Plus I like her with Black Panther, good couple.
I agree the closet Marvel has to a female icon is Storm.She’s probably the most recognizable to the general public. As to why she doesn’t have her own monthly? I hate to admit it but she has TWO OBVIOUS strikes against her…
If only the Wasp was still alive.
It is sad, it seems like no one is willing to step up, and if anyone says well what about Bendis? First off, fuck you, and second berating and rape is not character development. Quite frankly, it is disgusting and disturbing on the count of the writer or creator.
Now if the majority of comic fans had our view on this subject, Bendis books would not be selling like they are. And you know what, if theyy don’t want to hear us speak, TOO DAMN BAD, cause we aren’t going to shut up for mindless Marvel zombies!
They don’t have a definitive female hero, but they do have a definitive pussy and she is the editor in chief, ye know.
He does have lovely golden locks
To be far this is an illustration of old school Avengers and they have considered Cap,IM and Thor the big 3 of the team since the early 70’s.Even referring to them as such in the comics. I think it’s way more interesting that Alex used to same photo refs for both teams. Was it on purpose to show the similiarities of was he just too lazy to hire some more models?
I’m going to go with laziness. He just replaced Wonder Woman with goldilocks, and said to himself, who’s going to notice.
Except Scarlet Witch is on the shelf. Marvel will never have a Trinity since they do despise the the female sex so. That’s why this whole year of “Women of Marvel” just angers me. It’s a fucking joke. Marvel have always and will continue to always treat women characters and female creator’s like shit. They may be fooling everyone else but not me. They will always be a boys club as long as Joey Q is in charge and as long as Bendis & Millar are allowed to rape their women characters. Fuck Marvel.
I just sighed like :”YOU IDIOT’S!” Bendis has so started that so he J.Q. and Millar can rape women all across their universe and fanboys as you said, they will eat it up 😦
Wow, I couldn’t agree more.
So, to say, screw you Marvel, klnow if you will excuse me, I will go to the freezer, and grab a spoon so I can enjoy some good old Ice Cream 😛
I don’t like the Scarlett Witch all that much. I don’t like Wasp, I could never take the Avenger’s resident Tinker Bell seriously, but I can easily find a story there.
The idea that Marvel can’t tell a good story using their female characters and have to resort to ‘who Ms. Marvel is fucking this week’ is apalling.
Ms Marvel was working her way to top female banana until you know who got his hands on her.
I still think Ms Marvel has the most potential for being Iconic aside from Storm.
First Ms. Marvel, than he got to Spider-Man, now whos next on his destroy lovable heroes list?
Marvel has their sights on beating Thor to a bloody pulp.
Maybe I’m the one who’s missing something here, but I don’t really get the ire that this has raised. It’s an Alex Ross painting of a classic Avengers lineup. That’s all. Scarlet Witch is there because she was part of that team. Storm, Jean Grey, etc are not there because they were not. Seems as simple as that to me. Do I agree that Marvel treats their female characters poorly? Sure. I just don’t see how this painting is in any way an example of that.
I think the problem is that Marvel doesn’t have any other real female Avengers to begin with. If they had more, than Scarlett Witch wouldn’t be the one repping the female cred here.
So, it’s not that the painting is offensive, it’s that Marvel has no real female characters to populate it with.
You are reading too much into it. Black Panther isn’t on the team, is he? And he has NEVER been a big part of the Avengers. No blacks allowed as far as Bendis and Joey Q are concerned. Well, unless you’re Black Goliath. Then they will just fucking kill you.
I was just taking the chance to rip on Marvel. Nothing more. If you are looking for seriousness go over to IGN, CBR or fucking Comicvine. Those twats will more than accommodate you.
Wow. I thought I was the one saying that everyone else was taking it too seriously and reading too much into it. Clearly, I was wrong. Have a nice night.
How the hell did I miss this post LMAO!
I have no idea. How did you?
I was too busy playing DJ
So Jose, I dont mean to pry or anything, but Ive been wondering just how many books are on your pull list?
How dare you pry!!!! 🙂
Just kidding. ON my pull list right now:
Joe The Barbarian
Last Days of American Crime
Brave and the Bold
And I probably have missed a few since I am some what intoxicated.
Whoo Intoxication!!…..haha anyway..
Thanks man, Im looking to cut back on my list majorily while also adding some of the great stuff thats been flying below my radar
what’s on your pull now mr. wrestling maybe we can suggest some books
Well I just dropped alot of stuff like Green Lantern, Brightest Day, and Captain American…..but also added Superman, Action Comics and Thunderbolts(These last two are amazing by the way)
So overall my list right now looks like this:
Justice League: Generation Lost
Joe the Barbarian
Hawkeye & Mockingbird
Legion of Superheroes
Batman & Robin
Return of Bruce Wayne
The Last Days of American Crime
Wow that is alot of books….I will probably need to trim it down more if you guys suggest some really good books
Oh and I’ll probably give a look at Mystery Society the next time I go to the shop. I’m also looking at Gorilla Man, and that X-Force: Sex and Violence minis when they come out.
Chew, Daredevil and Fantastic Four are also on my list. Thanks for the reminder.
I saw you forgot Daytripper too unless if you cancelled it. I don’t know about you guys but issue 7 was weird as hell I hope it was just a minor slip up
No…I forgot that too. 😦
Still buying it. I told you…I am intoxicated. You can’t expect me to remember important things like this.
Does your inner thoughts sound like this?
I was reading Sparta USA for awhile the last issue ended really weird with the Nazi’s storming Sparta. I noticed issue 5 comes out this week may pick that up. I actually dropped I,Zomie Invincible Iron Man and Batman and Robin. You can always pick up the trades for some of your books too. Inside man made a good point about I,Zombie. The trade’ll prob be $9.99 and I’m sure you could find any other books online pretty cheap.
Well Im giving I,Zombie one more issue before I decide to drop it or not. But I agree to your point about trades. Its much easier to drop titles when you can pick the stories up later as trades
MW– I was thinking about more trades and hardcover suggestions… Especially after looking at your list.
You very well may have read many of the these:
Tomb of Dracula (There are 2 Omnibi & Marvel just started reprinting the issues in regular trade format last week)
Ex Machina (trades or hardcovers)
Y: The Last Man (trades or hardcovers)
Fables (trades or one HC collection so far)
Locke & Key Vols 1 & 2
The Walking Dead (5 Hardcovers so far or 11 trades… I think)
Criminal Omnibus (or 5 trades– with the “Criminal: Sinners GN released just a few weeks ago) by Ed Brubaker
Gotham Central (trades or hardcovers)
Swamp Thing by Alan Moore (3 cool recent hardcovers reprints or also in trades too)
Tom Strong by Alan Moore (trades or hardcovers)
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (trades)
Ignition City by Warren Ellis (GN or HC)
Hotwire GN by Steve Pugh (and Warren Ellis)
Freakangels by Warren Ellis (GNs or HCs)
Midnight Nation GN by JMS and Gary Frank
Supreme Power by JMS and Gary Frank (GNs or HCs)
I’ll stop there but I could keep on going… 🙂
when it comes out I would recommend getting Daytripper when it comes out to trades that book is fantastic
I love the covers for that book -just beautiful
Is IGNITION CITY good? I’ve never been a steampunk guy…
Ignition City is great Mike.
My LCS is till sold out of Mystery Society so I think I might wait on a trade
hey jose what did you think of Batman Beyond was thinking on picking it up, but I didn’t for some reason
I liked it Mbell. Even though I really didn’t watch the show that much I really liked it. I’ll probably pick up the rest of the issues as long as it stays good.
that’s cool I guess I’ll wait until it goes to trades. I got a lot of stuff on my pull right now, but a lot of my books are ending pretty soon I’m actually pretty sad about it lol
The best part of that whole series was the movie where the Joker returned. I knew it was going to be awesome from the outset since it was written by Paul Dini.
I agree. I also liked the way McGinnis picked up a little of Bruce’s speech pattern as he became more comfortable being the new Batman.
I wouldn’t mind seeing a Justice League or a Superman book that takes place in Batman Beyond’s world. I’d read it.
I agree on that an older superman would be pretty cool. I’d be curious to see who would make up the justice league that far into the future.
I loved when Geoff Johns did that Kingdom Come arc in JSA. The one where the older Superman crossed into our world. That Superman was way better than New Earth’s wishy-washy Superman with his 10 confusing origins.
That is a very good idea.
I would love to see that as well
An older Superman operating in a world of ‘Big Brother’ type oppression would rock. I don’t see Superman ever becoming the stooge he was in DKR. Actually, I see him being the opposite, in defiance of corporate rule.
I’ve always seen Superman as a conformist. Batman is the one who tends to color outside the lines.
Maybe in current continuity. When he was first created, Superman was the hero of the common man. Even now, he works a desk job, grew up as a working class farmer, and has a wall street tycoon as a nemisis. I wouldn’t call him a conformist.
Batman is rich, has lots of gadgets, and is disconnected from the average man.
How’s Mystery Society? I think I remember you and E talking about it, but I’m drawing a blank. I seem to remember a preview where the art looked like a cross between Estaban Marato and Phil Noto; both guys I don’t care for, yet the art seemed right for the book. Color me intrigued.:-)
We reviewed it and both thought it was great. The art was great Phil. Give it a look see.
I just saw the HTC/AT&T commercial and had to post this choice track for those who dig Nina Simone.
Ahhh, yes. Verrrrrry nice Rush. Love this song. Not even remotely related but:
Oldie but a goodie.
That makes me feel so fucking old. 😦
Not old my friend, experienced. Fuck I’m older than you 🙂
Man I haven’t heard this in a dogs age. Thx for q-in it up
Of course its gonna be a beee-ziiitchh for me to fall back asleep again.
Hooray!!! Now you can join the rest of us insomniacs!
Here’s one from around the same time.
Man, Rush. You know your fucking electronica. Most impressive.
I have this damn album on cassette. How about this:
YES! I haven’t heard that track in a while. This was a great track at the clubs.
Oh, we talking club tracks now Rush? Alright…
Niiiiiiiice. Alow me to retort.
Fuuuuuck…what I wouldn’t give for some E and a bottle of Ice Mountain right now Rush. 🙂
Dude, don’t I know it. It’s been 3 years since I’ve even been to a club.
Sorry it took so long to reply to this Rush. I have been reading all the other comments and my email.
Muh…must fight urge ta..too suck on baby pacifer, twirl chem lights, blow on whistle and dance! DANCE!!!
Oh god my pants just turned neo pink..wha..whered this Dr Suess Cat in the Hat come from?
You know you love it D.
Oh we doing soundtracks? I got something fo’that ass!
IT HUNTING SEASON ON THESE BLOODSUCKAS! MUTHA FUCKAS!
Techno was created by African Americans from Detroit D.
Yeah I know, I prefer more aggressive techno ala Blood Rave.
If I’m gonna dance to techno, it has to be Wesley Snipes approved.
J your trying to suck the life outta me? This is to mellow need to kick it up a notch.
@ Jose: for the love of God or at least Darwin, please tell me for your vid above,that “E” has a totally different meaning 🙂
Just for you D.
…and this mix of Firestarter.
well, since I’m gonna be up
Throw up some Irish Pride?
a true irish mofo makes me be proud to be irish top of the morning to yee bitches
Now thats the shit!
Jump Around! They took the bad taste of Vanilla Ice outta white boy rap and pried the door open for Eminem
and for those of us that have lost our way
let us now join hands, and call out to our own
Ok definately not my thing.
Glad to see your tastes vary though
Yeah, MM is usually not my taste either, but he’s only got two songs that I like and they’re both covers. That being neither here nor there,
my batteries are starting to wind down again…so I’ll leave y’all with this…… the onlt album by these guys that i liked, and my fave song from it
see y’all in a few hours
I like this rendition. Here is another good cover
I gotta balance this crazy Manson out with Cee-lo
I like this.
Try this on for size
I like everything about this track except the rhyming.
Blasphemy! That sir is Black Thought of the Roots crew.
I shall forgive you this one.
I’m goin old school with this…
You never ever go wrong with Stevie.
He is apart of the soundtrack of my life
Stevie is a legend and agenius, but he’s not infallible:
I just called…. and Part Time Lover proves this:-(
Is there a date for Guardians of the Globe to come out?
I think getting that mini will be the last ish by ish deal before I go almost strictly trades.
August I believe.
And title was changed to Guarding the Globe.
wonder why they did that throughout Invincible they were called the Guardians of the globe kind of stupid they changed it to that
Yes. Yes it was. Good point.
I want my KABOOMERANG!
That such a badass name Ha!
I’m suffering from Umbrella Academy withdrawls. Vol. 3 is taking fucking forever.
I know right? The new series is supposed to hit later this year. I hope that is true.
I heard there’s a film in the works too. I hope Alfonso Cuarón directs it, that’s be awful sick.
A film!? I have not heard these rumors.
Supposedly Dark Horse has optioned the film rights off to Universal with a tentative release date of 2012.
Thanks. I hope they don’t fuck it up.
I actually think it’d be real cool in stop motion.
Of course, it’d be wicked hard to pull off onscreen. I’d like to see a director like Cuaron or Del Toro. They might be able to do something neat with it.
I didn’t know about this either. Huh…cool
That would be interesting.
Although I think Gabriel Del Toro would be well suited for it
Agreed. It has to be a wildly visual flick.
Cuaron for Fraction’s Cassanova, now thats a better match.
Or the Unwritten?
Even better, but it doesn’t really have a narrative dude just keep dying
Now that’s the ticket. The Unwritten would be a REALLY cool movie, I would see it at midnight and be the first one in line for it
I agree Stamps! It’d make a wicked flick if done right.
Dude forgot all about that book.
Good stuff from a celebrity, who’dathunk?
I’m sayinn’. Who would have thought that the dude from My Chemical Romance could actually write? Let alone kick ass and take names!
Yeah when I first heard of Umbrella Academy my initial reaction was to hate it, due to the “high quality” of celeb driven comics.
Dude definately has talent, his music not so much.
Just read the latest issue of Action Comics I want to read it because Cornell is on it, but wtf was that worm thing at the end of the issue whats its significance?
That’s Mr. Mind. He’s an old Captain Marvel villian.
Ya, what Heck said. Mr. Mind is old school.
Anything before 2008 is old school to me unfortunately lol. I’ve only been into comics for the last 2 years to be honest you and everyone on the blog have really helped me pick through all the bs comics out there. When I first started out I picked up every book that had the Secret Invasion logo on it to make sure I got the whole story lol. I wish I could go back in time and slap myslef. I don’t want to sound too sentimental, but thanks Jose and everyone on the blog on your recommendations you guys have helped me read some good books.
You are welcome Mbell. That’s what we are here for. 🙂
oh ok I was wondering I was confused as hell I hope there’s some clarity next issue on why he’s attacking Luther I’m really excited to read Action Comics and Superman I’ve only two Superman stories All-Star Superman and Last Son. Loved All-Star Superman Last Son was okay I’m excited to see what these guys can do with him and Luther.
How’d you like the first issue of Cornell’s run, mbell? I only skimmed it.
I thought it was good I really liked the Louis Lane clone it’s pretty funny he wanted someone to keep him grounded. Cornell really captured Luthers arrogance I’m not sure what happened during the War of Supermen mini, its nice that Cornell’s taking the Blackest Night route instead I hope Luther runs into Larfleeze soon I think it would be hilarious to see them battle it out over the orange ring again.
Yea Paul Cornell’s first issue of Action was awesome….I cant wait till he gets some more DC work now that he is an exclusive talent
actually once all of this Brightest Day bullshit is over, I would love to see a Justice League book featuring the Big 7 written by Paul Cornell
that would be really cool. He works great with a team book as seen with Captain Britain
Brightest Day bullshit indeed.
For me if the big 7 are involved, then I would like to see them partnered up with the marginal seven or eight… so they can bring it back old school. Five to eight person teams that would be chosen depending on the type of task.
The big 7 in and of themselves, the issue I’ve always had was…folks with their own books also in a team book with no sense of placement/time.
I always relate this song to my insomnia. Everyone needs some Death Cab.
Good song makes me depressed in a good way.
If that’s possible?
Almost like a sadly happy feeling? I know what ya mean bro.
Yeah..like coming home from a hard days work, it’s late and everyones asleep
Yeah, like you know that they’re there but you don’t interact. So you’re actually alone.
Goddamn! your like that Care Bear wazzitname Gloomy!
Ya, it’s off their new album but it hits home for me.
I really like that song. Despite it making me feel really lonesome.
Dude, if we ever meet face to face I’ma make it my mission to get you laid.
Now what kinda prostitutes you like? Asian, white, black, I know you like redheads 😉
Excellent song by the by, you mutha fuckas turning me into a emo listening bastitch! I’m already black and nerdy you trying to get my blackness revoked?
What’s next D&D?
You haven’t been exposed to goth yet.
Is this song talking about Bendis leading his fans? 😉
Oh crap….I’ve gotta be up for work in about four hours and I still cant sleep. Tomorrow morning is gonna suck.
So how are all the other insomniacs doing?
Drinking till I pass out. I gotta be at work tomorrow too.
haha sounds like a good plan
He he. It sure sounds like it right now. “Morning me” is sure going to be pissed at “evening me” I can tell you that much.
I feel ya
nothing like going to work in a zombified state
Have you guys seen this? I’ll admit I just saw it yesterday.
BLOWS MY FUCKING MIND:
Oooooooh my is right, brother!
Not sure what that is from, but the guy is comedian Eddie Pepitone.
I hope a gang of Koreans bumrush his store and pee on everything.
They may have already done just that. I don’t think he’s in business anymore.
So he went to the mattresses.
Ba bah bum
It’s no different than any of Sarah Silverman’s skits.
You get that thing I sent you guys Jose?
Email? Elliott gets all the email in his account from this address.
Want to send me email direct? Send it to shonenbatt@yahoo. That’s me.
Sent, big attachment.
Hey!…. I want free stuff!
Soul brotha too bookoo 😀
Only on the weekends
Mr Wrestling… I posted some more GN and HC ideas for you up by your pull list post on this thread. Just didn’t want you to miss out on my tasteful list. 🙂
haha yea I see the list insideman, I really appreciate you takikng the time to make that list.
Thanks. It was fairly easy since a lot of those stick out in my mind whenever I think good/great comics.
“Flight of the Conchords: Seasons One and Two” with CD is going to be Amazon’s Gold Box Deal today. Don’t know the price yet…
I want that poster!
hmm so I think Im gonna post this one last thing and then try to get some sleep…as fun as it is talking on here, Im gonna pay for it tomorrow morning haha
Soo anyway….with all the talk about new series and such I got to thinking about some of my favorite writers out there today. And I realized that there are only about 4 creators who I would have no reservations about buying work from, even at a 3.99 price point, just because I trust the quality of their work.
Those creators would be:
I would have to say that if I had to choose I would say
Greg Rucka and JH Williams if they worked together again on a book
Warren Ellis (Vertigo or Wildstorm book)
Grant Morrison if it’s a book outside of Batman I’m pretty burnt out on him and Batman paired together
Just found this pretty snazzy
I like it!
Damn she’s freaky!
Damn this hits hard, yet still hard that drum I like
Her name is Stank Spider Nice
Alright I’m about to get funky for the next few songs
I like Outkast 🙂
I tried to like Tricky, dude just ain’t my style. I like some of his stuff with Massive Attack, but he’s hit or miss for me. This good though
This track doesn’t resonate with me. What else you got.
here is some Derrick May.
Not doing it for me how about..
This is one of my personal favorites.
Now that’s the stuff.
Well I gotta sleep while I can I’ll leave ya’ with my favorite Outkast song of all time
Awesome! night man.
Song for Hangovers Jose take note
Now this is more to my taste.
Here is a dude from Chicago.
Ok..I dig this love the drums very mellow yet snappy, make me wanna drink a mojito
I’ve dropped this track in a set and the girls loved it.
Wow, over 200 posts the 1st night. Is that a record?
Finally read Zatanna #2 and… I’m done.
Cool ideas. No sense of urgency. No sense of any REAL danger.
Oh and if you’re going to have your main character in a flimsy negligee for almost the entire book, please have the artist decide in advance which “areas” are gonna show, OK? I’m perfectly fine with the “G” rated nightgown but was completely incensed by how it changed thickness given the lighting or angle.
Oh. Please don’t tell anybody but apparently DC believes that Zatanna STUFFS HER BRA whenever she is wearing her “work” clothes.
Same here. After reading #2 I thought to myself “Annnnnd…I’m out”. Book had potential though.
Yes, unfortunately, it did.
On Marvels’ Trinity: I’m guessing I missed something…. Why exactly does M need a tri? I going to surmise that Marvel put up three characters, probably just to tweak dc a bit. Anyhoo, were I to put up 3 it would be Spiderman for popularity, Hulk for recognizability and symbolically Captain America.
@ Deemar325: Check your youtube inbox
@ assemble avengers 124: Check the “idea for a superhero response” in your blog.
A D pt2: Thx for reminding me where I saw the Gnarlz Barkley guy from. 🙂
what am i supposed to look for?
A question that I had for you in your “Idea for a super hero story” section.
oh i don’t know which artist any would be amazing to see characters i thought up come to life that would be extraordinary i mean to see mc niven or stewart draw my characters is a dream come true. i’m also thinking about doing a second post as i have a few ideas about villians or storylines.
Ya, come on! If Marvel was gonna do something like have a “Trinity” you know they would have to UP the game and have (at least) a “QUARTET”. 🙂
and a 8 issue mini with 37 tie-ins, and a 100 variant covers. He he
Yes. He he
That A above shoulda been @ by the way.
Anyway to extend what Rush had mentioned on the last open thread; do you have a DA accont D325?
I thoght I remembered you having one ( I gotta quit eating the funny brownies )
So this weekend Robert Kirkman came to one of my town’s LCS with Cory Walker, Nate Bellegarde and some others to do a “Independents” day signing. It was great. The best part though was that there was a kid around 12 who is drawing his own little comic book.
They sat him right between Kirkman and Walker with his own little sign and he was signing his book and giving out copies. It was adorable. He was asking Kirkman and Walker all these questions about their books and they were asking him about his little book. It was so sweet; I just respect and like Kirkman so much more now. He’s a great guy.
awwwwww that sounds lovely what was his book about?
Don’t get so excited, the kid’s name was little Bobby Bendis– and all his characters just sat around and ate fruit roll ups and drank cranberry apple juice from juice boxes.
Bendis w/o the Misogyny? Or were the female members of the group being called “Dumb girls”?
god no god no no nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo damn you jesus or buddah or whoever’s up their damn you damn you to hell!!!!!!!!!!!
I think it was about teenagers and various high-jinks they get into or something like that I can’t really remember for sure.
Yeah it was a really heartwarming scene. He was asking Kirkman all these questions like “would you ever work for DC?” and then talking about pen names and how he uses one when he writes and if Kirkman ever used one in the past.
sooo i want to trade in my xbox 360 for a ps3 but fricken gamestop will only give me $60 store credit for it and i was like fuck that!…..*sigh*…
eBay it. Add games and accessories and you should “score” much higher.
The new korn CD comes out next teusday if anybody likes them. i do obviously lol. i listened to it already and it is not that great but hey its better then the stuff on the radio.
shit one about your x-box ps3 problem sucks man. you could put it up on ebay or amazon if you want more money?
That looks pretty cool.
Those two movies look awesome J. Are they released yet?
Not yet, no. I’ll have to look up the release dates for those later.
I’ve been waiting for both of these films.
Anyone else watching Comic Book Superheros on the History Channel?
There up to the 1969 changes they made to Wonder Woman by giving her a white costume and taking her powers away, and having her learn Karate.
and the battle continues about WW.
See Jose? It’s not just CCW and FBD.
and in this corner
and in the other corner..
If I am correct Mr Blue says that Wonder Woman is not iconic because we dont know nothing about her. Thats true. Mr red says that Wonder Woman is named next to the biggest superheroes of all time. True as well. I think that wonder woman’s appearance and name is most iconic. Most people dont know nothing about her origin or her powers. I think that more people know what Storm Powers are.
Ya, 70 years of Wonder Woman comics and we (i.e. certain people) don’t know anything about her? Now that is fucking funny and ignorant at the same time. Brilliant.
Sometimes strange things happen when I say things from my dutch and therefore quite oblivious perspective on the topic of comic books :-p
There is that thing with WW that is a problem with most old and famous comic book character, but she gets the uglier stick (no pun intended): her fan(boy)s.
I was going to make an insightful resume on that, but just take a look at CBR WW forums. A lot of the posters who claim to be older fans are so bizarrely anal. The amount of vitriol there for just a bunch of prologue pages (anyone who is literate know the story has not even properly begun) is kind of overhelming.
And imo they aren’t even fans of WW herself, but of a version that mix Lynda Carter’s WW + extreme fanboyism. That is why she don’t do any better on sales, the public DC has always catered for when dealing with her are these anal people who only likes the ‘holy iconic, that must not be touched or changed because it is sacred’. I hate to use the term, but they are old farts and when you cater for those you really aliante new readers. They are so anal that they want her to be able to be punched by superman on the face and still just walk away like a common female figther can if a man more or less her stature punches her, but still she should be vulnerable to bullets and cutting weapons (“cause her powers comes from M-A-G-I-C, it doesn’t need to make any sense or be consistent with itself \o/”). /end rant
On a side note, I read this today and I kind of agree with some of the points (even if only partially) and wonder what yer people think:
This is an interesting article and I can agree with what the author is saying.
She doesn’t hold as much power in the DCU as Batman and Superman?? Most characters in the DCU don’t even know Batman exisits! He’s the “Dark Knight”. Superman and Wonder Woman both have more pull.
I see her merchandise everywhere. Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman merch is all over. Next I’d say is Flash and Aquaman with Green Lantern moving up majorly in time for his new flick. This guy saying there is no Wonder Woman merch is ridiculous.
To say that WW hasn’t had good writers is also silly! In recent memory Gail Simone and Greg Rucka both penned excellent WW runs. JMS is now starting his and he’s a big named writer! That’s just the past 5 years. This guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Ok, I agree with the last part of your statement, but just for the top where you said that most characters in the DCU are unaware of Batman’s existance, can you please explain that to me?
Well, Batman is a vigilante. His methods were always keeping to the shadows and striking fear into the hearts of criminals. The general public hears about “The Batman” but I don’t think they ever really see him.
Superman on the other hand, makes public appearances. As does Wonder Woman.
I thought you meant the heroes and villains in the DCU, I’m sorry, my bad, so I see your point, and I agree with you, thanks for explaining to me.
Completely agree with you Heck.
I am usually quite mistrusting of people who hate on the character. I believe that there are some deeped rooted personal issues at play and that is why people don’t give her a fair shake. I have more to say an this topic but I am at work now. Maybe I’ll elaberate on it later.
I think a lot of fanboys hate on Wonder Woman because she’s female (and could kick any guy’s ass). It’s a double edged sword. Wonder Woman is an icon but fanboys don’t give her too many props and therefore DC isn’t quick to make movies or cartoons featuring a character that their fanboy’s fear. Comic books are still a male dominated genre (hence why Marvel hiring a female writer has to turn into a ‘YEAR OF THE FEMALE’ or something silly and sexist like that).
I think the general public is ready for Wonder Woman. I think she has the right bit of mythology, action, and superheroics to make box office magic. I think she’s wildly iconic.
The first female superhero DESERVES to be iconic, that’s it, right there! And I’m not a WW fan, but I’ll admit that.
“deeply rooted personal issues at play” if you hate on the character or don’t wanna give her a fair shake? Jeez, It’s a good thing you embrace your pretentiousness.
As far as “iconic” I would put her at the same level as Captain America in the public conscious. The Gen Public instantly recognizes the image of the character and the most basic story (amazon warrior, WWII super soldier ) They lag behind Batman, Superman, Spider-Man. They are instantly recognizable and the public could tell you a good deal about the characters story (crime ally, bruce wayne, krypton, clark kent, daily planet, peter parker, uncle ben, ect..)
Just call it like I see it.
on FCBD, Art Baltazar was doing sketches at my LCS. A young “vertigo girl” said something negative about Superman. It’s not that she has a “deeply rooted personal issue ” that keeps her from liking the character or giving him a try. Unless you would consider trendiness a DRPI. Girls like her see Sup’s as the poster-boy for generic superhero comics. I think, (and I’ve heard) that many veiw WW as a bland cardboard character. They don’t have to be young misogynists in training. I personally think that DC doesn’t help WW by making her “superwoman” indestructible, superspeed, flight, superstrength. They could showcase her as a warrior if she were outmatched and won with cunning, savvy, and experience. It would her her from looking like a bland female superhero, if they focused on her mission as princess of the amazons. That would make WW stand out, rather than just fighting second rate villains or Ares or Heracles. Lastly, WW has a great underused tie to myth and legend. To compensate for her loss of uber-abilities, it would be cool if WW used weapons from myth.
WW is just stuck with a stereotype of being a bland DC superfriend. At least she has Aquaman to look down upon.
Frankly as good as the Simone and Rucka runs runs may have been, the fundamental nature of Wonder Woman hasn’t fully been realized. I think Wonder Woman is held back, partly by industry attitude and partly by comics fandom. I think the author of the article is pretty clear about this.
I think the idea of an icon can be settled by closely examining the definition of icon as it related to a person then checking if the person in question meets the criteria set forth by the definition. Shall we try?
Icon – somebody famous for something: somebody or something widely and
uncritically admired, especially somebody or something symbolizing a
movement or field of activity.
@Hackslash2020 I just wanted to say I LOVE YOUR NEW ICON!Or gravitar,or whatever the kids are calling it these days. I LITERALLY have that issue Love and Rockets sitting on my table as I type this RIGHT NOW! IT’s underneath an old copy of Uncut magazine with a Clash cover story,which is underneath comics I haven’t read,which are underneath bills,which are underneath my newly acquired Creepy HC.
#31 is my FAVORITE cover next to #24 and right after that it’s #22.
I know it’s off topic from WW,but it IS related to how women (and to a lesser extent alternative sexuality) are portrayed in comics…Does anyone else out there like L+R?
Does anyone have any feeling about how a couple of straight guys depict women and bi-sexuals?
Read the “How Loathsome” HC I just picked up in the B&N sale for like $4 or $5 (originally $18.95).
Written by Tristan Crane and excellantly drawn by Ted Naifeh, the book is a cool exploration into the San Francisco Gay, Lebsian, Transgender– you name it scene using episodic vignettes with several recurring characters. The story doesn’t go anywhere epic, which is perfect– as it reflects the lives of the main characters and the fact they are living their lives bouncing from one party scene/sexual encounter to another.
Warning: Their is nudity, sex, graphic language– and for the really PC faint of heart– a sex hungry lesbian with a big black strap-on.
I loved every panel and I’m not the least bit gay. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) 🙂
Interesting…The latest Daytripper has an ad for Stuck Rubber Baby by Howard Cruse.I let this one slip by me in the late 90’s cuz…I dunno.It’s partly about the main character coming out, but it’s also about the civil rights movement of the 60’s.I’ll probably check it out as well.
I don’t wanna just bash Marvel (cuz I’m probably gonna spend good money on Secret A and Thunderbolts) but one of my major disappointments w/them these days is they talk about wanting to expand their readership, why not use the MAX line to stuff like the above? I’ll give them credit for doing the Stephen King stuff and the Oz books,but why not something like Persopolis (er,the story about the Irainian girl) or Ghost World? Why not revive Millie the Model as a straight up teen comedy line? Not everybody fantasizes about being a superhero!
You’re right Edward. Their MAX line showed such promise… Especially with the Supreme Power books… Then just dwindled into an excuse for gore and swearing.
I missed “Stuck Rubber Baby” in the 90’s too… But I picked up the re-released HC a couple of weeks ago and the exterior looks gorgeous.
It is DEFINITELY in my tall “To Read” pile!
I said the same thing over at my blog only instead of the MAX line I said the Icon imprint. I don’t think Marvel likes creativity or new ideas like that. They would just say that would be to costly or something along those lines. They say their the House of Ideas, they just don’t say what ideas.
I’m gonna start your reading your blog,
Here’s what Marvel doesn’t like (and for the record, neither does DC): Publishing properties they don’t COMPLETELY OWN. That’s why you only see Marvel’s SUPERSTARS (some in sales and some in quality) being offered publication via Marvel’s ICON imprint.
I’m sure a whole bevy of their mid-level writers have great ideas they’d rather print at ICON… But you won’t see Marvel setting that PRECEDENT any time soon.
I’m sure they hold the Icon line out as a “carrot”– so all the writers that are interested in “toeing the Marvel line” will strive to get to that level of sales.
If you think about it– the Icon line IS really a great incentive for Marvel the corporation. Doesn’t lead to any better books per se… Greed NEVER does… But it does make Marvel a shit load more money.
@ insideman: Was it Ted Naifeh that drew the Machine for Dark Horse awile back?
Yes he did! I just checked:
Cool looking book. Thanks for mentioning it. I missed that character… Which is a shame because I really like Ted’s art and John Arcudi’s writing can also be top quality.
According to his site– http://tednaifeh.com/ — Ted is also drawing a “Coven” back-up for “Teen Titans”. I haven’t seen it yet, as I just read collections… and I’m behind as it is.
Thank you for your comment and nice to see someone with such good taste 🙂
16 is a cool cover too. I like issue 5 and 1 as well. Overall they are all great covers.
This story is getting a lot of traction, I’m on the Iconic side.
any arguments about her not being iconic is a straw man. Iconic ain’t about how many people reads the comic, it’s the general public awareness.
If my grandmother knows WW and a pigmy in central Africa can spot WW she iconic.
I’m on Icon side too Deemar.
Cool, I don’t get the WW hate.
She hasn’t had the best track record in comic sure, but all my neices know who she is, I’ve been all over the world there are girls in Japan dressed as WW!
How is she not an icon
I recognize her, and respect her for who she is, but, I’m just not interested in WW, no hate.
My feelings exactly Venom
I just got my first comment that wasn’t a CCW commenter today so that was pretty cool.
Also, I was wondering if anyone else listens or watches Comics on Comics?
I listened to a couple of their older clips on You Tube.I thought they were OK. One that sticks in my mind that ties into previous posts here is when one of the guys tells
a story about feeling proud of himself cuz he was reading MS Marvel because it’s about an independent woman. Then his girlfriend walks in and says “this looks like a comic for 12yr old boys”. He looks at the cover and thinks oh yeah, it’s a blond w/big boobs,in a swimsuit punching someone.
Yeah, I remember that one. That guy does make some weird remarks once he was talking about reading Box Office Poison, saying it was horrible, and couldn’t believe it won a Eisner.
I liked B.O.P. I think it IS a bit overrated but it was a decent read.
I have it on my shelf. I’ve never read it though. Too many things jump in front.
I haven’t read it as well, but the statement always stood out for me for some reason. Anyway, I think the reason I never read it was because I feel it’s a little over shadowed by books like Blankets, Jimmy Corrigan, and Robinson’s earlier work.
I will have to check out Comics ON Comics. Thanks.
that’s cool M!!!
about the Hembeck deal, alyhough I guess the c on c was cool also
Very cool MSpot!
You moving on up!
Moving on up to the Eastside!!
Spotty finally got a peice of the Piiieee!
What?! Did you just say PIE?!!!
I’m snacking on some pecan pie as we speak! Hooray me!
Oh that kinda pie, i thought it was that other kind.
Creeeepppyy, lol 🙂
Pecan Pie is the other kind.
What’s a man gotta do to get an APPLE pie these days? 😛
I have learned something new today.
Knowledge is power. Use it wisely.
I should probably start working on that.
Now thats pie!
Plus I’ve had this pie sitting in the frig for a week waiting just for the perfect moment to enjoy it.
It’s the simple things, like good beer and quality pecan pie!
I’m a simple man of simple desires.
Dude I’ve been meaning to ask you if you use traditional media for your art, combination of traditional and digital or do you have a purely digital work flow.
Straight up traditional! Pencil, paper and ink.
In a perfect world I’d refine my process, but until then speed and wit wins the day with the Funnies!
Theres a bunch of art you guys have yet to see, Elliot is figuring out ways to utilize the art we haven’t shown ala the youtube channels opening credits.
I’m trying to convince him to sell swag t-shirts and such.
Do you have non CCW related work you could show off on Deviant Art for example.
I hope he’s wearing a bib.
Does your Snark ever end!?
It’s the only thing I live for so I hope not.
I wouldn’t change ya’ for anything.
If only it can be converted to energy.
I believe we can make that a reality 😀
I trying to prove the existence of a theoretical particle called the stupatron. It is emitted by the stupid and if a person has prolonged exposure to it then said person’s intellect will diminish. I think there is a Nobel in it for me.
OMFG… I sent the GF your cock bib link a while ago and I think she just ordered one.
Ohhhh yeahhhh baby… 😉
Multi-tasking. He he
A very important thing to do!
Well, I picked up some more Manga books! (Big shock. I am so obsessive-compulsive about stuff like this.)
Finally got all the Battle Angel Alita and Battle Angel Alita: Last Order volumes in the house.
Then a bought the Blade of the Immortal volumes (which comprised the VERY LAST of Jose’s picks that I could actually buy without spending lots of money on scarce back issues).
Then I went and ordered Fullmetal Alchemist and Air Gear. The latter series because Mike F told me that was “good fan service”. 😉
Oh, I also picked up the first 2 volumes of Maximum Ride– which I thought I would mention because it is receiving such EXCELLENT reviews. Based on the James Patterson series– the Manga books are supposed to rock!
Did you get Berserk? I can’t remember that far back.
Air Gear is really fun. Gets a little too wild for its own good, but overall its a good ride.
No. Should I?
Yes also Claymore is enjoyable as well.
Also Drifting Classroom and Parasyte. 🙂
Now you’re being silly. Do you own one of those 1-800-Gold-4CASH joints? 😉
Seriously, I’ll check ’em out. Thanks.
HA HA, I didn’t mention those before because, well, I forgot.
So is it true that Wood’s last issue of DEMO is this week?
It’s always been a six issue mini.
Oh, I caught a link to his blog/site and he wrote this long farewell styled post about the “final” issue… Its still on my list of comics to get tho. Brian Wood is great.
Why hasn’t there been a Stig comic. The Stig is the best things on Top Gear. In my opinion not only does he have one of the best jobs he doesn’t have to say one damn word while doing it. I mean there is even a untapped toy line you have the British Stig, U.S. Stig, trucker Stig, and yes there was a black Stig, but he was lost at sea in a older episode and was replaced by the current white British Stig. I find that a little disturbing, and boarder line racist.
You saw that The Stig is going to be in Gran Turismo 5 for the PS3, right?
Yes I did. Because of that I will definitely be picking it up.
There was also a German Stig in this week’s episode. He has a mullet.
Thats funny, I missed this weeks episode.
BBC America repeats OUT THE ASS. (Just so you know… If you don’t already, I mean.)
I don’t think BBC America is playing the new season yet. I could be wrong though.
I’m sure that’s completely true. I keep forgetting about other means of distribution.
Hey, Jose… Went to BevMo beverage store tonight because they were having their 5 cent wine sale– Buy one, get the second one for 5 cents.
I picked up 2 bottles of “Irony” red wine. (I shit you not.)
Would you like one?
I’ll send you the 5 cent vintage! 😉
He he, that’s awesome.
My last girlfriend was reallllly into wine and if I was still dating her I would totally take you up on that. She would have gotten a kick out of it seeing how she knew my hang up with people misusing irony.
Which one of you guys posted our Avengers #2 review over on the Bendis boards?
SOMEONE DID WHAT??????????????????????????????????????
Let the WAR begin.
We gonna get a shit load of Marvel Fanboys descending on us.
Bring them bitches on
Well, it looks like some serious shit is gonna go down!
Oh rush, what about this one:
Oops, the wrong one, I what I wanted to post was the fight scene from anchorman, the embed code must have screwed with me again 😦
No worries I know that scene. 🙂
Hellz yeah Rush!
We got a army of insult masters, Jose is the general and I’ll lead the artist army and bring JINXWORLD to it’s knees!
I’d hop on there, but my behavior would not be appreciated by a forum dedicated to sucking off a misogynist and saying he’s a wonderful writer. I’d most likely get banned.
And getting banned from that horse crap forum would be sadder than scene of clown porn.
I was looking at the comment section on the blog for that video, and a user named Will.S said he posted it.
DidoForever said he would post it on the Bendis boards if no one else did. Hope that helps.
Elliott sent me an email yesterday saying that it was on there but since I refuse to go on those boards I have no idea what is being said. I’m pretty sure I have a good idea though.
I believe we both the things they are saying about it right now.
I’m surprised that those cavemen over there know how to operate a computer or form coherent dialogue between one another. But, that is a Bendis fan for you. He he
To be fair, if someone was talking shit about a person whose taint I dreamt about licking 24/7 I would be a little miffed too.
That’s the great thing about CCW we can rip on each other without prejudice.
Bendis couldn’t take the shit Elliot takes from his own ccw nation.
Painful, but true indeed!
We shred each other with care.
Ya, I can see this being the people who populate the Bendis boards.
That is probaly what its like.
I wouldn’t be surprised.
Dude that is the video I use to illustrate the intelligence level of the people at my work.
Link it I wanna see the Chaos
Yes MSpot, PLEASE?
It’s like the Ark of The Covenant it’s probably best to look away. He he
I can take it
I looked at it, and I’m still alive, heck, I’ve seen it MILLION’S of times!
I just read some of the comments. All I can say is typical.
What you talking about Will.S?!
I know this probably isn’t the best time to bring this up but I read Scarlet #1 earlier this evening. It actually wasn’t that bad. I would say that I did like it. It reminded me of the “old” Bendis. Now, having said that I still don’t think he is going to change his writing style for the 616 anytime soon. It’s just really fucking sad that it seems that he still has that original “voice” in him but it is being drowned out by all the money talking.
I had a feeling that was what it was going to be like. I just had that feeling.
That is the funny thing. He brings freshness to his own work but not to a lot of the mainstream Marvel books. Editorial will mandate certain things but not to have unique voices for the characters. Maybe he IS just tired of writing for the 616, he’s just collecting paychecks.
Remember back in the day when Bendis turned down writing Ultimate X-Men when it launched because he didn’t think he was capable of writing a good team book? My how times have changed. It’s like he still knows he can’t write a good team book but he will still collect the check at the end of the day as long as Marvel is willing to give it to him.
Seriously. My personal view is when art(writing,painting,music etc…) are monetized the art will ultimately suffer. Too many compromises are have to be made.
I agree, and in addition to the ‘please stake holders at all costs’ aspect, when ‘art’ is a mass product it caters for the lowest common denominator, that ain’t good for quality too.
That’s just what I was talking about above with MSpot. Marvel holds out the carrot of the Icon line to their big producers… Who hold back their “A” game for a bigger piece of the pie.
If that’s the way you are fucking going to work it– grow some balls and quit ripping off the Zombies… and just start doing creator owned stuff. Bendis has certainly built the following. He certainly has cash. Go out on a limb, sucka!
Either that or call your book what it really should be called, “Brunch with the Avengers”.
I’m going to have to agree with Insideman in that Marvel uses Icon as a incentive for creators. Also, take this into consideration with the Icon imprint there are no editors to over see creative decisions. So, creators have free reign, and you get things like Kick-Ass and Nemesis.
And with that good night all. Man, it is really hard to do this on eastern standard time. He he
I watched a CBC live show on youtube. It was full of lots of ass sucking. One good part was Fraction busting on Bendis, saying that if he moved the X-Men out to San Fran it would take 5 issues for them to drive there. Bendis’ response was that greedy little money sign of rubbing his chubby fingers and thumb together.
Fuck them fuckity fucks
It’s on Some guy name DEEZ talking shit
That be him.
The first thing I noticed after a three minute perusal is how many of the posters post their OWN UGLY MUGS next to their pearls of wisdom?
Does it make you feel good posting your mug? Think Mr. Spielberg’s gonna come callin’?
Yet where are the posts? Help a tech challenged friend out? I’m not above stirring up some shit.
No need to stoop to that I say.
I am tempted myself.
I used to frequent Jinxworld myself, but got really tired of the asslicking and worship to Bendis.
Any criticism of the bald one the attack dogs come out and I got tired of it.
I should pop up under my old name
I wouldn’t worry about it D. The people over there are drinking the Kool Aid and really do not know any better. Who cares what they think. Hopefully I won’t sound too pretentious when I say this (because some commenters really have a problem with me speaking my mind) but WE know better. We CAN see the forest from the tress. We CAN see the truth behind the bullshit. We should just be content with that and let the “fanboys” live in there deluded reality.
Comics are entertainment, nothing more nothing less. And yes, I do make my living because of comics and for that I am very grateful. But I will damned if I will let ignorance ruin my good time.
Anybody that has a problem with you speaking your mind on your on board can go fuck themselves six ways to Sunday.
In short, eat shit and die Fuckheads.
I think I should start a “Best Comments of the Week” post.
I’ll reframe from blowing up the Jinxworld spot.
But just say the word and Deemar’s going Commando.
Hey D– I’ve carried a very worn out Louisville Slugger around with me for 15 years.
I had it tattooed “The Persuader”. 🙂
Insider I like your style
But as Jose said, lets hold our wrath
Absolutely. Right now they are talking about CCW, if we respond then we are saying we actually care about what they think about CCW. We would loose the higher ground.
I will not move without word from Jose.
If Jose says don’t bother. I don’t. It is HIS board (and Elliot’s, of course).
I just visit here.
Deemar I think we need a summer CCW event comic.
We had one, but that suffered some problems…(Bat-Mang will return!)
To what your saying it’s not my call it’s all E&J, they run this ship I’m just the firstmate
I love when you speak your mind. It’s just, sometime what you say is ridiculous and deserving of comment or discussion.
I obviously don’t drink the same Kool Aid as you, so why would you care what I think?
That’s very true. I shouldn’t care at all what you think. I’ll start working on that.
sorry I disagreed with you. All readers that don’t want to try a Wonder Woman comic are disturbed misogynists that should be sterilized for the good of humanity. Will I be accepted and embraced by the group now?
I didn’t say ANYTHING about people who didn’t want to “try the book”. You are putting words in my mouth in an attempt to make your point.
I said people who “hate on” the character are the ones with problems. People who “hate on” the character with no valid reason. And as far as I am concerned no one from this group will miss you when you are gone from here let alone wanting to “accept” your tired attempts at trolling.
I accept you.
We need a contrarian.
Now go ahead disagree 🙂
Voice of reason here. I think everything here is up for debate without the pejoratives being slung at each other. 🙂
Rush, this is NOT aimed at you. You just made me think of how much I love the word… and how I need to use it more. 🙂
Good I love the word PEJORATIVE.
I wish we all used MORE pejoratives.
There’d be a lot less fucking confusion and lots more people would get their acts together.
I would pay double to see a movie where Samuel L. Jackson says, “Nah uh. You did NOT just use a pejorative in conjunction me. I know you didn’t.”
I’d pay to see that
You are just sittin back laughing and eat pie aren’t you, bastard. 🙂
Sometime it is necessary to use pejoratives and sometimes it’s just not constructive.
Bahhh I missed the WW discussion. I totally passed out on bed after I posted, I should know that my ‘just five minutes to reflect life’ are never five minutes.
I hear ya, I fell asleep earlier too.
I just read the posts over there. I hope you guys mind that I write this.
This is the last thing I am going to say about the subject (unless queried by one of you):
Jose, you would be surprised at the number of people who AGREE with you and Elliott. A great number of people do and say that the points you bring up are worthy of discussion.
Sure, there are a few haters… But it is garden variety Fanboy Zombie bullshit… The vid has actually started deeper talk then even I would expect.
I am paraphrasing the following. (I’m sure as hell not going to spend my time documenting this stuff word for word.)
A poster writes that the Avengers book should not be seen as the central focus point of the Marvel U anymore. Another says it wouldn’t kill a Marvel Editor to add Editor Notes (like they used to) when certain things that happen in the Avengers book don’t jibe with goings-on in the regular solo books.
The creator in question then says Matt Fraction is a good friend. That they just talked about their books today, in fact. (Of course he doesn’t note the last time they talked about their books.) He says he reads/knows the other books and takes what is happening in the other books into consideration. (Really?) (I mean, Really?)
Bottom line: What is the creator’s reply to the poster that brings up the idea of adding Editor footnotes to his books?
He writes something like, “Maybe they should write one that says It’s not 1974 anymore.”
So THAT’S apparently what he thinks of continuity. (And EXACTLY what I thought he thinks of continuity.)
I’m going to produce a new t-shirt that reads:
It’s SO 1974
P.S. Brian might want to clue Steve Wacker into the fact that we’re in the 21st century now– cause Steve’s books are crammed with helpful editor notations.
Maybe Bendis doesn’t want this to happen in his books because the Editor Boxes will:
1) Add an additional voice to his story that is NOT HIS voice and NOT APPROVED by him
2) A woefully misplaced Editor Box might cover a shot of a waffle-lovin’ Wolverine asking one of his other breakfast lovin’ Super-Hero Pals to pass the maple syrup.
Yeah I noticed Bendis comments, what a dickwad.
He really is in need of an strong editor.
Good post my man!
In 1974 The Avengers had a good writer, Steve Englehart.
Very true. And the NUMBER of Marvel books being published were a HELLUVA LOT SMALLER.
Still, I am sure his editor(s) helped Steve with continuity issues. I know I would have wanted the help. That’s what they exist for. 🙂
Amen to that In 1974 the Avengers were Avergers.
Well, first, thanks for the update since I refuse to go to those boards. The fact that ANYBODY agrees with us is a surprise.
And second, this really does say it all doesn’t it: “Maybe they should write one that says It’s not 1974 anymore.” What an ass.
I have noticed that all the nooks Whacker edits do have “editor’s notes” and I quite like them.
Bendis is an albatross around the neck of Marvel continuity and they need to grow a fucking set and tell him to knock it the fuck off.
Also, I would so want one of those t-shirts.
Here’s the EXACT EXCHANGE:

Does Tony regain his fortune in the current Invincible arc and takes place before your first Avengers arc hence why Tony has all of these resources or is there some sort of government funding by way of Cap that’s funneled into Tony’s expenditures?
BENDIS: How about an editor note that says: it’s not 1974 anymore 🙂
Bendis added the smiley-face. Not me.
What size do you wear? We’ve already covered it has to be long sleeve. 😉
(Allow for shrinkage!)
Power and Responsibilty
Bendis needs a lesson in that.
He really is coasting as you have stated, Avengers is a crutch for him he has to fear what would happen if/when he leaves those titles.
Spider Woman failed and that probaly spooked the shit out of him. The root of Bendis’ problem is his personality, there are other creators who are loose with continuity and play fast and loose with characterization, but he is unique in his contempt for the fans and nasty remarks.
I predict Bendis will be the John Byrne of our time, his shitty persona will be his undoing.
Quit playing FF for two secs and tell me what size! 🙂
(Allow for shrinkage.)
Sorry. I was busy banning someone for calling me a “fucking pussy”, ” beady-eyed little prick” and “an insignificant little twit”. They were also angry that I “turned my insults into petty jokes.” Oh the drama.
I don’t dry my shirts so I guess I would take a medium. If they are “form fitting” though I would go with a large…but probably a medium.
Wow that IS dramatic? You sure it wasn’t Millar?
You know, I wouldn’t be surprised. In all honesty though it’s just one of those things where I just choose not to deal with it. I do this blog for fun. I want people to come here to get away from all of life’s shit. Having that lingering negativity around does no one any good. Of coarse they try to spin the fact that by me banning them I am just censoring what they have to say in order to maintain control over all the “Kool Aid” drinkers. The simple reality (as a stated before) is that I just choose not to deal with it. Seeing how it’s my blog I think I have that right. If people feel butt hurt over it there is nothing I can do about that.
I have plenty of people who disagree with me from time to time on here who do so without feeling the need to hurl personal insults while doing it. I have very little patience now a days for people who can not be civil.
Nor should you.
Just yesterday I wrote on the Bleeding Cool forums that Tom DeFalco ABSOLUTELY had the right to criticize today’s comics. (The story went that Tom apparently attended a NY con and chastised Bendis and his brethren for their decompression storytelling.)
If anything, RESPECT the fact that DeFalco was EIC of Marvel for a loooooooong time.
This guy was saying Tom shouldn’t comment because he just came off as one of the bitter old guard of creators. (Although, this guy, of course, had NO PROBLEM with Denny O’Neil– another member of the “old guard”– who SUPPORTED Bendis and the current decompression storytelling technique at the same con.)
I told the guy that EVERYONE has a right to their opinions.
And ~NEWSFLASH!~ We ALL have ASSHOLES too.
A difference of opinion supported by thoughtful passion is great.
Trolling is NOT. I CAN’T STAND TROLLS.
I want to take them out into the woods and introduce ’em to my cousin Clem. Clem likes to give folks a feelin’ for the woods– “Deliverance”-style.
I don’t mean to pick on you dude but I have seen your post on other blogs before I came to CCW. You came off the same as the guy who got banned. 😉
Rush, I’m not going to get animated until I confirm who you’re talking about. Is it me or Luiz?
Cause I have only posted on ONE other comics blog in my entire life– Bleeding Cool– as I continue to do once or twice a week.
If it has nothing to do with behavior in these boards why are you bringing it up in here?
I have stated before I do not care what goes on elsewhere. All that matters to me is how people conduct themselves in here.
Jose, I know you responded that what happens on OTHER boards doesn’t have any bearing here– but I would like to set MY record straight.
Wow, Rush. Jose was talking about someone attacking HIM (as one of the CO-CREATORS of this blog), using harsh, unnecessary language.
I have NEVER done ANYTHING like that to Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool. I have never called him a “fucking pussy”, or a ” beady-eyed little prick” or “an insignificant little twit”… In ANY post at ANY TIME, ANYWHERE.
THAT’S what Jose and I were discussing… Someone acting like Jose can’t have an opinion on HIS OWN blog.
Have I ever taken exception with idiots, used strong language or vehemently defended myself from twats or twits on the Bleeding Cool boards? You betcha! I tend to see through UNDERLYING bullshit that others don’t or others just choose to ignore… And when I see BS– or see someone being unfairly attacked by someone using BS as their main weapon– you damn well better believe I’ll jump in.
Most people SUPPORT my efforts (not the ones being chastised, of course) and I have NEVER been banned from any board or blog– EVER. Nor has any Blog Proprietor ever threatened to ban me.
I’m not saying that I haven’t used language you may not agree with– or taken a tact you might find unnecessary or childish. I freely admit to responding in a like tone to people. So if an offensive poster is being an ass, normally I will be too… So I can be sure I’m getting MY POINT ACROSS.
Another thing: You said “blogs”– as in BLOGS PLURAL.
As I stated above, Bleeding Cool is the only other blog I post (fairly) regularly on… and most stories only elicit a one or two sentence response from me… If that. In the last 10 years, the ONLY other comics related blogs I have posted on were: a COUPLE of posts on Erik Larsen’s blog (asking him about missing Savage Dragon trades), ONE post on a CBR story recommending a mail order comic store (Dreamland Comics, natch), ONE post on Brian Hibbs’ forum discussing digital comics and what their arrival meant to comic stores and ONE recent CBR post to Jimmie Robinson– asking him if I could commission a piece of art from him.
When you post as little as I do– and you have a near photographic memory– you can remember these things… And I believe I have referenced ALL of MY PERSONAL POSTS above.
In short, I have seen several different posters using “Insideman”. I keep using it because I believe I was the first to use it. To differentiate MY posts in the last 2 years I have been exclusively using the Selleck photo (with his groovy old fashioned brick of a cell phone)as my avatar. (And that’s just here and Bleeding Cool… As I don’t post anywhere else on a regular basis.)
So maybe you have confused me with someone else. I’m not the only snarky guy on the internet.
However, I believe I have comported myself with the utmost respect HERE (conveniently overlooking my rampant use of profanity– the “devil’s language) that I use repeatedly in almost EVERY POST. So I don’t know what your specific beef is with me– or why you thought it was necessary to cast aspersions on me in such a way to make people assume I am (or can be) an idiotic asshole… But I can GUARANTEE this will be my LAST words on the subject… Unless you continue to further CHARACTERIZE my posts on other blogs in such an ERRONEOUS manner.
In other words, I don’t know what I’ve done to you, dude… But I think your statement– besides being UNTRUE– was COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY.
This is Jose’s and Elliott’s blog. I find myself being very agreeable with everyone here because 1) It’s easy. I agree with almost every point Jose and Elliott bring up and 2) Up until THIS MOMENT– I feel I have been treated with the utmost FAIRNESS and RESPECT by all the posters here.
All that said, sorry for being so long winded folks. I don’t like being blamed for– or credited with– SHIT that I didn’t (or don’t) do.
I felt it did because there was some finger pointing on his part by insinuating that guy was trolling. The original argument was between you, Jose, and DJSweet. Which you were handling just fine on your own. I was dismayed that other folks jumped in making inflammatory remarks, adding fuel to the fire.
The problem is though that Tom Defalco is an awful writer, if it was Roy Thomas criticising Bendis, then that I could wholeheartedly agree with 🙂
Locusmortis, Yeah I know DeFalco can’t write that well– but as I pointed out then– He has written Spider-Girl competently and entertainly (at least imo). Not gonna win any Eisner Awards. I get it. 😉
But MY point was that Tom still has a RIGHT to his opinion… as we all do. And whether you like his writing or not, being the EIC of Marvel for quite awhile also validates his opinion. He’s BEEN there. And again, we are all entitled to our opinions, right?
That’s why I also wrote on the post:
NEWSFLASH! We ALL still have ASSHOLES too! 🙂
I don’t think an EIC even needs to be a (good) writer, a good notion of how professional writing works would do. Two areas, two different sets of skill needed. I think that on average the best editors are those who are just ‘amateurs’ artists/writers, and just mild fans of their company’s stuff, while being actual managers. Some distance is required to manage anything and it is hard to provide for multiple parts and remain just when the manager/editor has a strong preference for any of them.
Of course, there are the exceptions (and for the record JQ is not one of them).
very true Luiz.
Too true, Luiz.
Tom DeFalco’s run on Amazing Spider-Man during the 80s was great, great stuff.
It is YOUR blog too. That’s like having someone come to your house and insult you basically. They have NO right to do it. I sold my xbox 360 for the ONE reason. The assholes on live. I swear they were just so cruel to me, I couldn’t put up with it. (the fact that Microsoft sucks was just the cherry reason i said goodbye)
If there’s one thing I HATE is those trolls who go around trying to piss on other people’s lives cause they have nothing good to contribute to the world. I say thank you for banning such assholes. the less, the beter.
Those insults were uncalled for. Jose is definitely not beady-eyed or little.
This is pretty much the Bendis/Slott dynamic
Ever notice how Bendis never misses an oppurtunity to slam Dan Slott?
This bit of cartoon genius comments on a great many things my friend.
Well its Jinxworld in a nutshell
That is why new cartoons imo do not beat older cartoons, at least a good majority of those I bothered trying, ofc. They were like real situations presented in a funny way, like a mockery of our daily shit. It was laughable for the kids (who were content with the cat/dog pursuits) and for the grownups who understood the subtleties of the joke. And when looking at our own problems (read disgraces) from a different perspective we all like to laugh at ourselves. They had implicity moral lessons. The message could, obivously, be disageed, but it still caused a more subtle reflection, one from a different and more relaxed perspective. They were art.
These new silly-cutesy things tailored for stuborn children who will cry louder and louder till their parents (who suck as parents anyhow) buy whatever they desire are actually sad. Had I kids they would grow up watching mostly older stuff, I tell ya. Guess it is human nature, societies never learn, greed ruins all, like a cancer (uh, I woke up philosophic today… well, everyday, but today a little more).
And yeah, it has to do with what I said the other day about escapism = a different form of realism, but hey, I am a single toned bitch, that should be no surprise anymore 😉
Luiz- Some new cartoons are good… But like almost any commercial entertainment medium– most shows suck.
Me? I’ll take a good Wile E. Coyote fucking instead of some of this other crap any day.
Well gents I need sleep I gots the pie-Itis
good night man.
i think beacause of his name they let him do whatever he wants sure bendis could do a good story but he can’t be arsed or he’s like millar and lost his passion for comics to be fair he was good for a while but then new avengers became luke cage and friends i don’t want to get into this
E,Edward, I.M., anyone remember this pilot?
I’m stil bummed that this show was’nt picked up as a series.
I don’t think I remember this show.What year was the TV show from? Eddie Murphy? and the Smothers Bros? WTF! And the boy who played Allen..he kinda looks like the kid from “parker lewis can’t loose”.
’88 0r ’89 I believe is when it aired, and yeah that’s the kid from Parker Lewis. Also the wife from Baney Miller and the Nanny.
This show had some slowness to it and the acting wasn’t always top notch, but it was inventive and ahead of its time. If you get a chance you should check out all the clips and see how trippy the show was. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
stan lee once said “that a good hero is only made by a good villian” so i came up with the idea of a villian i’d love to hear what some of you guys think as i respect everyone on here so much so constructive critism is welcome and how i could build on these ideas and stories thanks a bunch
Let’s hear it.
Assemble… Copyright or Register the character BEFORE you start printing a lot of main details here. I sincerely doubt any of us would do you wrong, man but you can NEVER tell who’s LURKING… Especially since a link to Jose & Elliott’s vid was posted on Jinxworld yesterday.
Just trying to protect you. 🙂
millar has been on here before. and we all know that fuck hasnt had an original idea since before civil war.
i could see his new comic now, ripped off from someones post on here. the stupid cover catchphrase could be ‘suck it assemble!”
just click on my name and check out my blog
oh god i never thought of that is just putting copyright then my name then date ok or will i have to register
I like the sound as power source idea. The hero would have to get pretty clever to put him down.
yeah i also had an idea about a chess based villian sort of sixities batman or brave and the bold batman villian or a group of un funding heroes one for each country a member of the g20 sort of corrupt anti-heroes who do the bidding of their elected paymasters. i have a few ideas like a south africian superhero called unity or something like that
Hm, so I take it I’ve missed a lot these past two weeks??
Yeah, the CCW nation was on the brink of a full on invasion of Jinxworld, but Jose was the voice of reason a usual. So, crisis avoided. He he
Wait a minute… Jose diverted an assault of Bendis’s home turf? He must be getting soft. 😉
oh god no those bendis followers would have killed us by pulling the well you don’t work at marvel so you don’t know anything about how marvel should be run. GOD DAMN BENDIS SUCKING BASTERDS
But we could have at least tried to break down their defenses by means of logical assessments of Bendis’s shitty writing and decompressed money sucking techniques. Their sycophantic nerd rage could only withstand for so long… wait, are all his books still in the top ten? Yeah, maybe you’re right.
that you Phil?
that link points to Knight Thoughts blog. I figured that guy is a friend of CCW.
wow, you’ve got some skills rush.
Thank you. Can I get a link to you DA page?
hehe, sure but there’s nothing on it. I’ve got a few things on my photobucket page, so i’ll give you that link too, but it’s all up on the fan art section anyway.
Funny stuff Pobra 🙂
cool stuff, rush!
3 entries and you’ve already more than doubled my input 🙂
Are you kidding that stuff I posted is old. I haven’t done any work in a long time.
The shading on that sketch looks good. May I make a suggestion though?
Work on creating more depth with the shading. The viewer of the work has to “feel” the shapes of your subject. You do have a good sense of light and shade.
Damn you got the touch!
Thanks D. Now I moving to a purely digital work flow. I’m waiting to receive Photoshop CS5 and Painter 11.
This caught my eye today as I was “working”
It basically says that Death of the Endless will be showing up in Action Comics (I was going to label this as a spoiler but its on the front page of a lot of comic sites so I didn’t bother).
First, I’m really amazed at how much freedom DC is giving Paul Cornell. This is the last character that I expected to see in a superman book, or any DC universe book.
Secondly, I found the comment section to the this announcement to be very interesting. It seems that a lot of people are in favor of this despite the fact that Death of the Endless is a Neil Gaiman character. But I remember a few months back when the idea of someone else handling Watchmen character was present, a lot of fans for really pissed off. I was wondering what makes certain characters untouchable (i.e. watchmen) but others are free to use (i.e. Death).
i think the reason something like watchmen is untouchable is to do with the story as in watchmen everything was tied up at the end of the story and alan moore wanted it to be tied up and he didn’t even want any movies made but if they do make some more watchmen stuff paul cornell would make some interesting things although you haven’t hinted that but paul cornell doing a dr mahatten series or grant morrison rorscah series herm
whatever you do don’t click on the above link…I have no Idea where that Search the deal came from. The sentiments are mine but not that name. I’m guessing some fishing’s going on, hopefully not worsr. I gotta go look for some online assistance. Later!
I removed the comment phil.
thx Jose, but there’s still one about 15 to 20 places from the bottom… right between 2 comments assembeavengers posted
Got it. Thanks.
The Worst bit is the best part of this post.
That was amusing.
Thanks for the link MSpot, I love it!
No problem Venom.
I liked the post in the comment section where the poster asked why Bendis’ creator-owned book was $4 and Millar’s was $3.
Then somebody went on there and claimed the extra buck was because Bendis’ book was 7 pages longer than Millar’s book.
Good god. Suckers are still born every minute.
7 additional pages doesn’t comes close to adding a dollar to the cost. And since it is creator-owned, Brian and Alex could have charged ANY price THEY wanted.
Well at least it was better than Millar’s book 🙂
see ya night yall
Olivia Munn is now a correspondent of the Daily Show? Really?
Yeah, I had the same reaction.
But did anyone happen to notice Alison Haislip rockin’ that cute. form fitting, wine colored halter top on AOTS 2 days ago?
When Munn 1st got the sitcom on NBC, she was all “I’m never leaving AOTS!” the following Monday.” Then Jon Stewart wanted to hire her a couple of weeks later and suddenly Olivia’s, “I know G4 TV would want me to grow and take the next step in my career.”
*Crickets* were heard at G4 in response.
Kevin continues to act like Olivia’s coming back.
If she does for any length of time, it will be for a few days G4’s Comic Con coverage. She’s got a new book to promote with WONDER WOMAN in the title, right?
Hell, the Daily Show will probably have her do a report or two as well.
Then she’s G-O-N-E from G4.
Yeah, last night before the show ended Steward was pusing her book, and I think tonight she’s doing her first report.
edit: Stewart was pushing her book,
Interesting things I saw on twitter…
from @WARRENELLIS “New things in comics shops you should buy this week: CASANOVA #1, SCARLET #1”
from @BRUBAKER “Seriously, anyone not picking up Casanova and Scarlet this week doesn’t want good comics.” which followed “Also, Steve Rogers: Super-Soldier #1 is out…”
Does this fall under shameless self promotion?
I can picture Bendis texting Warren and Ed to say this shit. They probably added Matt’s CASANOVA so it wouldn’t be obvious.
Yeah but that’s EASY to say when you’re getting COMPS, Mike! 🙂
Thoughts on SCARLET #1.
Ummmmmm, not the WORST thing by Bendis, but I don’t have a real incentive to keep going with it. But in all truthfulness, not the worst thing by him. Much better than the AVENGERS bullshit he wrote.
Mmmm for some reason I went to Bendis’ twitter page to add him for any future Scarlet updates (cause I won’t lie, I kinda did like the book) and it said he blocked me.
Bendis blocked me. The hell?
Have you ever commented on his twitter page in the past?
OH SHIT! I sent that video about you guys talking about his work recently!!! AHHH HAHAHA wow what a douche, he can’t take a simple criticism?
man, IDK what to say… I guess if that’s how it wants it to be.
That fact that he blocked you for that is pretty hilarious…and awesome.
It’s criticism that helps an artist improve. An artists work stagnates if he/she only listens to the applause.
I actually can’t stop laughing about it now. I mean if he’s THAT sensitive, even with Elliot praising PULSE and ALIAS in it, well, whatever, He’s never gonna be as good as Urasawa or Morrison so I could care less.
Nice Mikey nice.
Anyone else watching the Community marathon?
I didn’t even know there was one. Oh well, guess I’ll watch the end of it at least.
Well…haven’t we been busy.
The excitement from last night/early morning has spilled over.
CCW Nation! WE MUST COME TOGETHER! Let us not fight with each other!
The ENEMY is out there! In the ether of interwebs,not here within our burgeoning Geekdom of Cultured Warriors.
Are we not MEN?! Comrades!? We must lift each other up not drag each other down.
I look upon ye’ with pride, it was only a few years ago TWO MEN with vision of a better Union of Geeks, t’was Elliot and Jose whom brought us together! I was but a young lad when I first discovered their YOUTUBE channel, these men where kindred spirits and I offered my skills to them and pledged an Oath to CCW. From a simple farmboy they made me a knight, As I stride upon mine steed, I see not Fanboys (and girls) but COMIC CULTURE WARRIORS!
WE ARE A NATION of good geeks,dorks,nerds,writers,artists,critics and Cballsack.
lets conduct ourselves as such.
don’t forget about the ladies of geekery …
Preach on brother. 🙂
It was the ghost of Mel Gibson compelled me, now I must go and beat my wife.
I totally GET and AGREE with your call for unity, Deemar. That’s EXACTLY what I felt when I first started reading this blog… and EVEN MORE SO when I started posting.
Somebody highly recommended the guys’ vids– thinking I would really like them. I did. After about two months or so of watching them every week, I sought out the blog.
To be blunt, I wasn’t expecting much… As I normally can’t hang with the general level of immaturity and nonsense that passes as legit commentary on most blogs– but the CCW Blog was/is completely DIFFERENT. Like-minded people gathered together– bonding over a shared set of beliefs and reveling in reading/watching/listening to “good works”… Not content to idly sit by and just accept the crap that passes as “mainstream” entertainment today. A place for fun that also welcomed passion and thoughtful commentary on the medium(s) we love. Not to sound mushy– but I finally knew I’d found a “spot” on the internet.
All the more reason why I was completely shocked to be blindsided by a misinformed post that could not be seen as anything but an attempt at blatant character assassination. I simply don’t take kindly to unprovoked attacks… Especially attacks that are UNTRUE. I am always the first to admit when I am wrong but– Nuh, uh– Never did what this poster accused me of on others blogs.
And then to be DIRECTLY compared to a prick who had earlier that same night attacked Jose so childishly and viciously– just because Jose elected to speak his mind on his OWN blog… Well that’s just wrong, beyond the pale and completely indefensible in my mind.
I could see such a comment from a troll but not one of the “regulars”. Live and learn, I guess.
I’ve got a thick skin and I can certainly handle criticism– no matter how untrue or misguided– from a COMPLETE STRANGER… But I will not stand by idly while I am attacked.
In short, Deemar– Like I wrote above, I TOTALLY GET your post– ALL of it… but I didn’t start anything and I just don’t feel like I’m the one that needs to be paying attention to a lesson in general camaraderie and blog unity. 😉
Unity begins with U N I.
That’s all I got.
All good baby bubba! All good.
I feel you, D… I promise. 🙂
Checkmate bitches, and tell the drama club their tears will be real tonight. 🙂
Did you hear Alison Brie is going to be in the new Scream movie?
No I didn’t, I’ve heard very little about the movie, I’ve seen posters and stills from the film, but that is about it.
Britta is wearing some sweet Wonder Woman pants in this episode.
This a reboot?
I don’t think so. They are calling it Scream 4 as far as I know.
I can’t really see how they could continue the franchise, unless it’s rebooted.
Um… I haven’t seen this discussed on here.
Wow that looks terrible.
Plus its from the guy who did Scooby Doo, which is a bad sign.
lolololol. I get it! All those monuments were turning blue because the Smurfs are blue! That was awesome. And god, I so wanna get smurf’d. I wanna get smurf’d so fucking hard. And since this will be in 3-D I have a feeling I will be .
Yep, the end of cinema as we know it.
You watch they are going to make Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Ponies next.
Are Johan and Peewee in it? HAHA
Who green lights this shit?
Haters. Nothing but haters.
I’m drinkin The Haterade right now.
Ummm..I wasn’t hating. Didn’t you read my comment?
That is an excellent question. Where’s Insideman when you need him?
To answer the question, the people who greenlight this shit are the SAME PEOPLE who greenlit a movie based on the fucking “Magic 8 Ball”.
I can see why Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are incensed that Paramount will not fund the sequel to “Anchorman”– especially considering that ALL the heavy-hitters involved in the first film have agreed to return for the second… And every single actor from the first film had agreed to take drastically REDUCED paydays in order to get the 2nd film made.
I also really dug Neil Patrick Harris’ LACK OF ENTHUSIASM as he introduced the teaser.
If THAT weak intro (from an actor who stars in the movie and is desperately hoping to use it to launch him into a bona fide FILM CAREER) doesn’t ring a few alarm bells, NOTHING will.
THERE’S the TRUTH in your advertising.
Didn’t James Cameron already make this? Fucking remakes.
That is one of the WORST Teaser Trailers I have ever seen.
I also agree with the Scooby Doo statement, D. Must be “great” to be a director and have these two films topping your list of achievements. 🙂
Agreed. I used to love the smurfs as a kid. Why can’t this just be a striaght up cartoon adventure?
There is no way Hollywood is going to tackle the premise of the Smurfs
Daily show on Olivia Munn!
Pfffttt…Olivia Munn. I am too busy watching Chelsea Lately to care.
I like Chelsea, big knockers, sarcastic wit, heavey drinker she’s perfect.
Chelsea Handler is fucking hysterical.
Yeah, I’m watching it right now, and I can’t help but think I why is she there? Olivia Munn that is.
I just think Blair Butler would of been a better pick because she is a actual stand up, and I want to steal her job on fresh ink.
She loved Old Man Logan. That’s not funny.
That is why I want that job so I can burn down that shitty cubical, and line it with Invincible covers and Deemar Sunday funnies.
Was that a young Lewis Black wearing the fedora?
I thought he actually looked like the love child of Harry Knowles and Lewis Black… With none of Black’s hilarity or self-awareness. 😉
Ya, true. But he had the same mannerisms as Black while being cursed with looking like Knowles.
I really liked the show so I’m left wondering why this film had to get made. Why remake something that is already good.
I loved the comment, “I really wish I had my hair back.”
Yeah, buddy. I bet you do.
Why Mad Max is a fucking prick.
WOW! Loss for words. Doesn’t happen often.
Ahhhh, my late night dinner delivery just arrived. BBQ beef and steak fries. Nom, nom, nom.
What, no SoCo with lime? I thought you were a liquid dinner guy.
Well, I do need something for dessert…and I am already half in the tank anyway.
I weep for your liver.
There is hope for the future =)
I don’t. I pray every god damn night that TONIGHT will be the night it fails me so I can just be put out of my fucking misery. To hedge my bets I started smoking again. Death’s sweet fucking release can not come soon enough.
Dude I go through a pack a day since I started my current job.
The idea of a world without you being around Jose is kind of depressing to me. But if you chance your mind, I can get you a cheap liver from the Philippines =)
HA! I forgot, you got the hook up!
Sounds like someone needs an intervention.
lol. I think that’s the first time I’ve laughed at anything from Intervention. Seriously…what the fuck was that?
You should check some of the remixes that have been done with this clip on Youtube.
NICE 🙂 thank god for you-tube
You smoke? Oh, NO! O_O
@ Jose…. I’ve said something once or twice to that effect and I never thought anything about it’til now.
I hope in saying that…. I hope that was your dark tongue and cheek sense of humor speaking. Every person is alotted a certain number of breaths while we reside on this globe and I’d hate to see anyone here or anywhere for that matter draw their last breath prematurely.
Everyone has something to contribute, even when things seem their most bleak, besides who’s gonna debate me on the merits or lack there of, of Old Man Logan if not you. Sure folks will be lining up, but it won’t be the same. Take it from a guy whose motto usually is “just ahead of every silver lining is a black cloud” that all is not lost.
Whatever that means. ( I’m really tired :-)…)
I used to LOVE to smoke. In fact, I bet I loved to smoke MORE than ANYBODY you know.
I didn’t quit because I wanted to. Believe it or not, I quit for my CATS. Such little lives and they loved me so much– and I repaid their undying devotion by blowing smoke in their face.
You wouldn’t blow smoke in your daughter or your son’s face, your mother or father, sister or brother, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend or husband… So It made PERFECT SENSE to stop for the cats.
Bur I’m not one of those militant anti-smokers. I would start smoking again tomorrow if it was safe– and I stopped years ago. I know no one will quit until they’re READY to… Or become sick of spending $45 a week on cigs.
To anyone that is thinking about quitting… Do NOT go “cold turkey”. Stop smoking and then chew Nicorette gum. That’s NOT going to kill you (as long as you attempt to somewhat follow the directions on the box). A director friend of mine quit almost ten years ago and he still chews Nicorette gum like a nervous baseball pitcher in the bottom of the ninth with a one run lead and the bases loaded. I chewed the gum for about 8 months and then one day realized I didn’t need it.
But if a doctor told me I had inoperable cancer tomorrow– I’d sell all my shit, grab all the Sherman cigarettes (great brand– lacks most of the harmful, shitty additives) I could find, grab a huge bottle of rum and hit Bermuda in search of fun-loving beach bunnies. And I’d smoke like a smokestack until I had to shoot myself in the head.
Or you could have a baby in order to quit. My mom told me that my dad used to smoke but quit when she became pregnant with me.
Cat’s cheaper, more loyal and won’t try to kill you in your sleep with they turn 17. 😉
Are you sure. Cat are evil, they will steal your soul while you sleep.
I smoked for about 5 minutes back in the 90’s when I thought I was a hipster.I remember when you could get a 6-pack and generic cigs for about $5.These days in the Chicago city limits a pack of Newports is about $8.That’s reason alone to quit.
The cigarettes help me with anger management, I’m going to have one now.
Yeah i used to smoke and loved it as well. THough i did quit cold turkey i wouldn’t recomend it. My friend bet me $20 that i couldn’t do it and being the stuburn bastard that i am, i quit to spite him. Though i do enjoy being able to run and do other physical atctivites without having an aneurysm, i do miss the sweet light headed tingle of nicotine surging through my body.
Two words Smokey: Nicorette Gum. Works like a charm for those cravings. Ever need aback-up (now that you’ve won your $20), this is it.
On a side note, I bet my Dad lost at least $5k over the years betting people he could stop smoking… Until he finally did. 🙂
I actually stopped smoking a couple of years ago. For whatever reason stress is getting to me a bit more than usual and that was the number one reason I smoked it the past. I only smoke about a pack a week so it’s not too bad.
I appriciate the tip though. Thanks.
The gum is a really small square. You can literally chew it a few times (about four or five regular gum-like chews and you’ll feel a slight burning sensation going down your throat. But that’s GOOD– especially if you’re craving nicotine– because that the sensation of the nicotine being released from the gum and heading into your bloodstream… Then just leave the gum sitting on the side of your teeth in the back of your mouth.
So small, you can talk with it sitting there– nobody’ll know… And meanwhile, the “sweet” Nicotine is still seeping out and handling the stress.
Your body is not craving the cancer causing TAR and other hideous additives that cigs contain anyway… Just the nicotine… Which is why the gum works. It actually delivers the nicotine faster– and in greater amounts– than several cigs.
Plus you can chew gum almost anywhere, anytime. 🙂
in conclusion: never let it be said that I don’t care.
BBq beef wasn’t one othe few carnivore type foods that I missed when I gave up eating meat, but lobster, squid/octopus and deep fried turkey was. The steak fries sound good though 🙂
(just thinking out loud, so to speak)
The only thing I really miss are potatoes, in all of its many varieties.
Not even sweet potato PIE?
I sometimes do sweet potatoes in the winter. But white potatoes are a no-no. Starch will fuck up your health.
Ya too much starch isn’t good. I think I will make potato and leek soup with andouille sausage. Yucca is also fantastic.
Starch isn’t good for you? Has Asia been informed yet? (This a rice joke BTW)
Asians eat more of a whole diet than Americans so they can get away with such things. Still, white rice is quite starchy and very high glycemic, so it’s not something you want to mess with. You’re really taxing your system when you eat any complex carbs. Our bodies weren’t designed to digest them.
exercise always helps. A lot of folks in the US tend to have a sedentary lifestyle.
I’m doomed in that case
@ cbs: where do you stand on nuts? (the legume that is) 🙂
Nuts are mostly fat. You don’t want to eat too many. You should always soak your nuts first to remove any enzyme inhibitors.
No jokes, please.
so what do you eat?
Fruits and veggies, brother. Juices and smoothies. Some nuts. Sometimes quinoa (although I’m trying to give that up, since it’s a grain). And I was vegan for the past three years but I recently reintroduced fish back into my diet.
Yeah but friend chicken is good, right?
My Momma always said it was good… And IT IS.
Is chicken your only friend?
so CBs… the fish thing, was that a protein thing or an omega 3 thing that brought fish back into your lifestyle? And Spirulina… is that a vegan powder or no?
By the way let me knoe if you want me to ix nay on the ealth ay alk tay!…( sorry, weak on the pig latin):-)
It was more of an Omega 3 thing. I don’t worry about protein. Everything has protein. Spinach has protein. Americans typically eat 4 times more protein than their bodies need.
And spirulina is a seaweed. Really good for you.
Trust me, I don’t mind the health talk. This is the stuff I consume myself with when I’m not talking about Batman or Wolverine or Captain Kirk.
That is really admirable CBS. I love to cook I’m having a tough time sticking with a vegetarian diet. I started making Indian food but some recipes just call for the animal fat and damn I miss it.
When you start eating healthier, your palate changes. You start craving salads and fruits and fresh-squeezed juices. The idea of eating the shit I used to eat isn’t the least bit appetizing. But it’s a gradual thing. It definitely didn’t happen overnight for me and it’s something I’m still working at refining.
Why hasn’t there been a Dr. Pepper commercial with Doctor Who in it?
Because Dr. Who is awesome and Dr. Pepper is a horrible concoction of fermented horse piss and hobo toe jam!
Just out of curiosity Rush, are you from Texas?
Ah, OK, I was stationed in Texas for four years and Dr. Pepper is huge in Texas.
That’s because it was invented there. They were originally known as Waco’s after Waco Texas.
4 years and you didn’t get indoctrinated to the cult of DP?
Are you talking about Donkey Punching or Double Penetration? If I know IM, he is a fan of both.
I like when I check in on the CCW and the first comment I read is like this one.
I know, right? I don’t understand why more people don’t comment on here.
Oh, Tom. We have missed you. 🙂
All of the above.
Like my Mom use to tell me, “you don’t know if you like until you try it.” Of course my Mom would then Donkey Punch me after that.. so I think there was a mixed message there =)
Was that before or after she introduced you to Hot Carl?
Hot Carl was Mommy’s friend she use to bring home after a night at the bar. Sometimes Hot Carl would even turn into my new daddy for awhile..
Wait! We are talking about my mother’s long string of boyfriends right? =)
Ummm…no. I was talking about someone taking a dump on you. Close though.
Have I gone too far?
Oh Jose, you can go MUCH further, lol 😛
LoL, not at all Jose.. if the worse thing that ever happens to me is someone taking an actual shit on me, I will consider myself pretty lucky =)
But what if that person is twice as fat as Peter Griffin and has aten 10 steaks in a row? 😀
Now your just making it weird =)
Damn what’s next, chili dog?
So what does everyone think of this?
Would you still post on forums if you had to use your real name?
I personally think it pretty crazy, putting yourselves out there for everyone to see. Especially if your a women or kid.
I have a lot of respect for Jose and Elliott for putting themselves on the line, so to speak, I don’t know if I would have the guts to put myself out there to suffer abuse at the hands of the internet masses.
I sort of use my real name.
I prefer ambiguity. Good thing I never got into gaming.
Well, these are my first and last names anyhow. But I think that is kind of a ‘uh’ move. Real name, pseudonym, alias, nickname, nothing of that makes trolls less trolls, the problem is more on the inside.
Mine’s a twist on my name.
Stamps was my nick name when I was in high-school and I still get called that by a lot of my friends even now.
The thing is, that’s WoW. That shit is just a whole load of problems the world isn’t ready to sort out yet.
I think its okay to use a real name. It makes your arguments more strong when someone knows its a real person talking and not some fictional troll trying to just piss people off. But with WoW, Idk what to say, maybe if they just shut that shit down for good the world’d be a better place…
So out of curiosity Jose, will you and Elliot plan on reviewing Scarlet #1?
I’ll be looking forwardd to it 🙂
Who can’t relate?
I would sacrifice my firstborn to get with Kristin Kreuk.
Well, after you watch Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li you will just want to sacrifice yourself. And, no, that is not a euphemism for wanking.
That movie was so bad I felt like I took a shit out my dick, it was that bad. I’ll leave it at that, good night.
Ya, that sounds about right. Later.
That was one terrible flick. Still, I don’t think she could ever look bad.
I hated Lana on Smallville, but loved Kristen. Kinda like a need for a hate-fuck going on. Ya digg?
@ Heck Is that anything like hating Jennifer’s Body, but lovin’ Megan Fox? 🙂
It’s amazing how a film can make so much money just by promising that Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried would make out. 😉
I don’t know, Heck. Usually for me cute is cute is cute and whatnot, but every once in a while someone like Megan or Cameron comes along and you go “I’d love to get with that’ and then they speak and ruin evrything 🙂
Almost every Southern Girl is exactly the same way, especially when they’re smokin’ hot… God knows I love ’em and wouldn’t give them up for anything… But when they open their mouths for the very first time, it’s just like Forrest’s box of chocolates.
You never know what you’re gonna get. 😉
the thing that I’ve always hated about the Forrest Gump analogy is that….well, it’s not true,not exactly anyway.
When you open a box of chocalates the one thing that you do know is that somehow chocolate is gonna be involved.
Also as far as southern gals go…I don’t know if things can be summed up so easily by region 🙂
Actually, having lived in the South for a many, many years… The analogy (imo) is perfect. It’s something I have experienced and (and noted to other people) hundreds of times… and is even the subject of one of the comedy routines I have written.
Remember, I’m talking about TRUE SOUTHERN GIRLS now. Not “transplants”… Or daughters of RECENT “transplants”. 😉
Also the box of chocolates analogy works perfectly for me too… There are several CREAM filled chocolates I CANNOT stand… And they also seem to be the pieces I pick out most often. Nothing like biting into a piece of chocolate and thinking, “THIS was a fucking mistake.” Especially in “polite society”– what the fuck are you supposed to do then? 🙂
So while it’s true that you will normally always have chocolate in a piece of candy from an ASSORTMENT BOX (like the ones Forrest was referencing)– what is inside can be a REAL CRAP SHOOT taste-wise.
Well I could wax on ad nauseum about the pitfalls of stereo-typing, regardless the faction, or how Fg’s comment is often misused because he misses it, but truth is I’m tired, and I think my batteries are about to shut off in another 45 minutes or so…. so I’m gonna call a truce…..for now, anyway.
Good sparring with you Insideman 🙂
Anytime, Phil. I’m gonna got eat a piece of chocolate from an assortment box and tongue a Southern Girl.
I’ll let you know how it works out. 😉
WOW! It worked out GREAT! 🙂
I don’t care what crappy movies she’s done. She is absolutely divine. She does for me what Breastina Hendricks does for you.
She makes you want to check your testicles for lumps?
I don’t know why but this made me want to watch it. I think I need a little more self love (not of that kind), I watched Dragonball (D)Evolution recently and I am already getting new heavy drugs.
For those who might care, Amazon promises to have several different “Anime Classics” on sale at different times today in their Gold Box Lightning Deals area.
Don’t know the titles…but sometimes the deals can be killer. Those are usually the ones I miss. 🙂
I care. Thank you.
Thanks, Jose. I just picked up FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Part 1 on Blu Ray for only $19.99. That seemed like a great price.
Then realized I should probably watch the earlier series– so I bought Season 1 and Season 2 on DVD (for what camelcamelcamel.com said was the lowest price Amazon has offered them at: $29.99)and then the Fullmetal Alchemist: The Conqueror of Shamballa Blu Ray movie for $10.
Shoulda known in advance I’d have to buy more than one… As I’m sure that’s why Amazon runs sales like this. If they had put the 1st Season DVD on sale, I’m sure a lot of people (myself included) would have stopped there to see if they liked it… But Noooo. 🙂
Apparently the 1st and 2nd Anime seasons end in a completely differently way from the Manga series. Since I just bought all the Manga volumes, I think that’s cool.
This is going to sound crazy but this is the first Anime I’ve owned. (Maybe not so crazy since I had never read a Manga comic until a few weeks ago.) Fullmetal Alchemist seemed to get universal 5 Star reviews… So I figured, “Why Not?”
Along the lines of still caring, Amazon is offering FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Part 1 on DVD RIGHT NOW for $17.99 (as of 1:12pm PDT). The BluRay sold out already. I believe this is their last specially discounted Anime deal of the day.
Actually you don’t have to watch the first series. People can just jump into Brotherhood. Brotherhood retells the story closer to the manga. I’m 30 eposodes deep right now.
I’m a completist. I like the full story. If it was good enough for the creator to create– I certainly don’t mind watching it.
I think both series are good. There are worse ways to spend ones time.
does anyone know when mystery society 2 comes out i’m loving 1 after picking it up today
So does the new Doctor Who series start tomorrow?
what the new doctor who series the series just ended 2 weeks ago the guy’s did a revoew on it it’s on youtube now and will be on this site soon it started months ago what are you on about?
Yea I figured it wouldnt start for awhile because it just ended, but I just saw a commercial on BBCAmerica hyping new episodes of Doctor Who
MW, the new series with Matt Smith has been on BBC America for awhile now. There are only 3 episodes left to go. This Saturday’s ep is called “The Lodger” and it is the final episode before the 2 Part finale.
If you haven’t watched the other episodes yet– PLEASE DON’T WATCH THESE FINAL 3 until you do.
This season was fantastic (borderline genius) and you will be missing all the plot threads (basically you won’t know what’s happening– certainly in any contextual sense). You will also miss out on all the emotional pay-offs of the ENTIRE SEASON– if you jump in now.
Of course, do want you want… But it would be akin to reading the last 3 chapters of a GREAT NOVEL… THEN going back and reading the beginning. 🙂

Just watched this the other day and REALLY enjoyed it. Sorry if this has already been posted.
Cool, I got to be comment # 666. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
I loved that film too, Pobra. MUCH BETTER than Clooney’s “Solaris”– which addressed some of the same themes as this movie.
I wish they’d make a sequel so we could see what happens on Earth.
ive been meaning to watch this for a while now. I’ts on watch instantly on netflix so maybe ill just do that
alright im starting it now i have high hopes after all this praise
One of the best Sci-Fi movies of the year.. I waited a long time to see this movie and I can honestly say it was worth the wait.
Sam Rockwell gives an incredible acting job here, how can you not feel for the poor guy after he learns the truth.
I even loved Kevin Spacey’s work as GERTY. Who would have know you could make an emoticon an actual character you could care about.
*** Spoilers ****
I would love to see a sequel to learn what happens to Sam Bell when he returns to Earth.
More importantly who was the man that interrupted Sam’s conversation with his daughter, could it had possibly been the original Sam Bell? If it was, did he know what was being done to his clones on the Moon?
*** Spoilers ***
DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!
IM, it IS the original Sam Bell. I don’t think he knew. Listen VERY carefully at the end of the film and they talk about the “moon based” Sam Bell landing on Earth and causing quite a sensation. (And not in a good way.)
Ah! I had a feeling it was him. thanks for the info Insiderman!
Over 666 comments that’s funny it’s better than just 333 only half evil. He he
I’ve always used that line cuz I was born at 3:33 AM.
Kevin Bacon is in talks to play the villain in X-Men: First Class. Now I have a reason to see this movie.
X-Men was directed by Bryan Singer.
Bryan Singer directed Kevin Spacey in The Usual Suspects.
Kevin Spacey was in Casino Jack with Maury Chaykin.
Maury Chaykin was in Where The Truth Lies with Kevin Bacon.
I could do that all day.
I use ta eat bacon with eggs sunny side up, the next day I would crack a couple of eggs, get some milk and sugar and cinnamo and make some french toast, the following day I would have a couple of slices of buttered toast with some pork links and finally I’d have an omelette (or however u spell that word) that would have bits of ham, sausage and baco.
hey that is kinda fun, cbs 🙂
I’ve been bamboozled I was expecting a comic book rant instead I got a Doctor Who rave. Oh well, I’ll allow it because Doctor Who was more impressive than the entire series of that Lost shit, and yes that includes the finale of Lost, that had to be the laziest TV writing I have ever seen.
Also my lcs got shorted on shadowland this week so i wasn’t able to even see if i wanted to buy it. I’ve really been enjoying Diggle’s run on DD so i atleast want to check out the first issue. You your all’s humble opinions is it worth the money? This may have been adressed earlier but its though to look through 670 comments after youve been gone a few days. Also aviod spoilers if possible
What’s the chances of us getting to see another episode of CCW*TV?
Should I hold out hope– or should I just pre-sign my AARP card, move into a rest home and die?
One was posted on YouTube today, but not posted here yet Insiderman, have you checked it out yet?
Wow! I’m impressed! Thanks (from all of us)!
alright y’all we’re at the 10 yd. line, who’s gonna carry us to 700 posts before the week end thread?
By the way, has it gotten ti 700 before?
Hey guys, just got back from seeing the Predators movie, and it was good if your a fan of the first two I think you will enjoy this one.
Good enough to for theater, rental or download?
I would say all of the above.
Cool I will give it shot, thanks.
No problem, I enjoyed it.
I definitely want to see it.
Okay, since this thread is still active, I’m just gonna come out and say it:
Gatchaman and (I guess his friends) look like they’re flying out of a GOLDEN Va-Jay-Jay.
I’ve thought this from the second I first saw it and I resisted the urge to post the thought until now.
(I wonder if the poster knew this when he posted this particular “piece”… Hmmm?) 🙂
Dude, they are a science ninja-team. And if you can get yer whole team into a Golden Va-J-J you know yer cool. Hell,why do you think Alex Ross is a fan of this Show?
I wanted to wait until the weekend open thread,but I couldn’t wait any longer. SHADOWLAND was fucking awful what the fuck is wrong with Andy Diggle that book was terrible. I was really looking forward to this book after how good his run on Daredevil has been and I was completely wrong. I’ve been reading Daredevil since Brubaker’s run and it pains me to say this because it’s been such a great book, but I think I’m done with Daredevil.
Unfortunately, I feared this would be the case. It’s really too bad.
it really is too bad. It was kind of nice to see one of the minor super heroes in the Marvel Universe get a chance to be put in the spotlight. A great opportunity was wasted.
I totally agree mbell. The writing was equally as bad as the art, and being that it was Billy Tan on art chores, that is saying a lot.
I’ve been reading DD since the Kevin Smith reboot and this is the biggest low point for me (and yes, that does include the entire Bendis run), Marvel has really killed my interest in the character. The story just feels cheap and the art is awful. Stay away.
With that bit of negativity aside, I find myself strangely compelled to tell you how much i enjoyed Scarlet. I started reading it at the shop and was intrigued enough to purchase the issue. I keep giving Bendis chances to win me back and it seems he has finally done it. It truly felt like a return to form for ol’ Bendi… that is, until you hit the avalanche of self-indulgent tripe at the end of the book. Ya had me Bendis and then you lost me. Who is actually interested in reading those long winded interviews of self congratulatory crap? Or how about the ads for the 6000 different books he’s currently working on? It was a really good book up to that point and it has me second guessing buying #2. Oh, and Maleev’s art is brilliant. Guess that ended up being kinda negative too, didn’t it?
I enjoyed the comic portion too Pobra. The shit in the back was another matter entirely.
Hey eveybody. My internet was down almost all of yesterday so that is why there was no new open thread posted and also why the new vid got posted here late (Thanks Elliott). I hope that it is working by the time I get home from work tonight. I’ll be sure to post a new open thead as soon as I do. This one is get a bit bloated.
