Hey boo boo.
Heh..I guess you watched that craptastic Yogi Bear trailer
A trailer for WHAT?!
Yogi bear with Justin Timberlake as Boo Boo
Yeah I know
Justin Timberlake is the herpes of Hollywood.
I posted it on the last thread. It looks really bad.
Who thought that was a good idea at Warner Bros.? SERIOUSLY WHO?!
I think that has been the general reaction by everyone who’s saw it.
Except for the furries who jerked off to it.
I didn’t think mainstream movie companies would cater to such a small demographic
Have you heard of Meet the Spartans and Disaster Movie? Hollywood will cater to ANY demographic as long as they can get their money. Furries are an untapped market and Hollywood will exploit the fuck out of it. How else can you explain the success of the Chipmunks movies?
No, but truer words none the less.
Has anyone read the comic Kill Shakespeare? Saw it in the comic book shop today. Looked interesting. Good or rubbish?
Frank Miller’s girlfriend thinks it’s shit so chances are really good that it is awesome.
Off my radar, what it about?
It’s about 22 pages an issue.
Heh, ya bastitch.
You mean the title wasn’t a clue?
This was a week of some very thrilling news I was glad to hear about:
Heh, that speaks to me! 😛
Anyone else watching My Big Breats and Me on BBC America?
Seen it already.
It beats watching Dane Cook on Comedy Central.
Or Dinner for Schmucks.
Not a big fan either
I will not disagree with you there. I’m watching Look Around You.
What do you think of that show?
I like it for the most part. Not always funny but I do enjoy it. Seeing Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg on there always gives me a chuckle.
I am addicted to this song it is that good:
When I need to get pumped up to write (after a few drinks) I sometimes listen to this jam.
You guys will never guess what I’m doing this morning.
Spreading peanut butter on your ding-a-ling and playing with a cat?
That was last week ha!
No, I’m working as a camera man for a T.V. pilot in Savannah, I leave in a few hours. One of my childhood friends is a camera man here in Atlanta and he got me this opportunity.
I might have to change careers if this pans out! 🙂
Way to go Dee! Have a good time, I’m going out of town tommorow at 1 p.m. to go to a fair in a bigger city, I am pumped ofr that, so we both have exciting things to look forward to! 😛
Hells Yeah, City Fairs and paying Jobs! Yay Beer!
Yep, a camera man for the pilot had to bow out and the production company my pal works for needed someone with experience ASAP, he called me up and got me the job.
Funny thing is I haven’t done this type of work professionaly, the buddy and I took tv production in highschool together and worked on a few things with him outside the company he works for.
I am fucking hyped!
Camera work, I would give you advice, but that is my line of work. So, I’ll just say good luck.
Thanks, I think I’ll be ok.
It’s only three days and I got my pal there to get me up to speed.
Plus it’s a reality show so how hard could it be?
Famous last words. He he
Cool. Let us know how it goes. Good luck!
Getting a sex change? 😛
Already did that.
Got a 2 for 1 discount with Andy Wachowski
And how did that fair out?
Someone had time on their hand
It’s like the Star Wars version of the money shot.
I wasn’t even going to bother until I saw the word CHRONOLOGICAL.
Because no one has posted it in a few weeks.
Why wasn’t she my school teacher? I would actually want to go to school if she was teaching 😉
Dude, when I was a sophomore in high school I had a student teacher in my speech class that I had a total crush on. My last girlfriend was actually a teacher too. Ya, I’m kinda fucked up.
You lucky bastard!
Lucky, I’m not allowed to date. 😦
….well being married doesn’t help.
Well I date…to GET married, and o this day, I still have to date a girl, because I do NOT want to settle down.
I miss new pussy. 😦
haha, i feel your pain D! been with the same girl for 5 years… oh shit here she comes!
“what dear? no… just talking comics with the guys.” 😉
There’s always hand puppets.
When I was a senior I asked a substitute teacher to prom. She was only like 22 and used to let me skip class by covering for me. She said no, but she was soo cute.
I actually ran into her last week for the first time in a long while. She’s a teacher now and even hotter.
In grade 12 english, I had a sub teacher, and lets just say, that yeah, she had a big rack 😛
Did you ask her out again?
He asked her mother out
Sadly, no. She was with what appeared to be her boyfriend, and let’s just say he was NO WHERE NEAR good enough for that babe.
Mu 3rd grade teacher looked just like Emmanuelle Chriqui.I used to fall over a lot trying to look up her sun dresses.
Don’t EVEN get me started on sun dresses.
You are obessed with that chick.
I’m not the only one on here brother.
I prefer the Progressive chick.
She’s annoying as fuck and I kinda want to stab her repeatedly. Except that goes against my Christian values.
I want to stab her repeatly also.
with my penis.
And all she’ll say is : “Is it in yet?”
No, I’m pretty sure she’ll feel it.
Women are good fakers 😉
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I AM SO EVIL 😛
She’s an annoying fucktwat, dude.
You’d rather he obsess over Chelsea Clinton?
Chelsea got money and access to power, so yeah I wouldn’t knock him for it.
I’ve given up at this point. Beggars can’t be choosers and all that jazz.
That’s why I sit back and let the ladies come to me! 🙂
How’s that working out for you?
Speaking from experience, probably not very well.
Oh it’s goin’ fine Jose, just swell!
Patience is the key 😉
You might like one of my Facebook friends. Redhead, very pretty. Her name’s Melissa, lives in Texas.
Why must you taunt me ballsack? Why?
I think of you every time I see her comment on my page. I don’t know why. You’d dig her sense of humor and music too.
Also, she was complaining that she hasn’t gotten laid in forever.
Well, I came to the conclusion a couple of days ago that I need to lose like 15 pounds and start working out like I used to. When I am done with that I’ll get back to you. Ain’t no pretty (especially like that) thing gonna want me the way I am.
I have also been thinking about moving somewhere else far from here. Been feeling the need for a drastic change.
And abandon Elliot? What will happen to the dream team?
We would still do the show only it would be a podcast. We would be talking over the phone. Eventually we would probably work something out if we both had webcams… like every other look distance couple.
That just wouldn’t be the same. Plus, it elevates the possibility that one of you will get naked.
Well, Elliott already doesn’t wear pants or underwear when we tape so it wouldn’t be THAT much different.
Your subtle facial expressions/eye rolls to shit Elliott says are part of what makes those videos so damn fun to watch.
Move to Canada J! You’d love it here! The beer, the fresh air, plus my GF has some pretty darn hot single friends. 😉
Plus Canadian girls aren’t as judgmental. A slightly out of shape, American geek could be just what the doctor ordered.
It would be like bizarro Scott Pilgrim, geeky American moves to Canada and hooks up with a cool, hot Canadian girl 😛
I’ve thought about moving to Canada a couple of times. Besides the awesome scenerio you just painted I also need me some healthcare. 🙂
If their strip clubs are any indication (and they are) Canadian girls are uber-sexy.
I don’t like the comic book prices though. Not at all.
I hear you on the comic prices insider. But many comic shops around here charge American prices for trades and hardcovers. We do pay $3.25 for floppies though. And $4.50 for books at 3.99.
Lucky for me that Dreamland ships to Candana.
You see, that I didn’t know Jose. Maybe I’ll go with you.
Let’s see if Obama gets elected again… Otherwise I’m not sitting through 8 more yours of Republican drool.
I already told Pobra that if Palin wins the next election he should expect to see me in Canada toot sweet. I am not even joking.
I literally almost pulled up stakes after Bush was re-elected. I looked into immigration. I looked into housing. Researched their health care system… All of it.
Every horrible thing I predicted came true (except I saw a recession NOT a depression).
No way am I sitting through 8 more years of that bullshit. NO FUCKING WAY.
(P.S. My old girlfriend moved to LONDON almost ten years ago. We, of course, broke up because of that decision. Little did I know she was finally right about something. I did snag NEW GF though and she’s MILLIONS TIMES BETTER than OLD GF. So that was the only thing worth sticking here for.)
And before I forget, for you Jose. 🙂
My last girlfriend was a HUGE HUGE HUGE Cat Stevens fan. Thanks for rubbing salt in that old wound. 🙂
Seriously though, thanks. I do like that song.
Good man, hook my boy up.
Wait fuck, I’ll take that.
You can have mine, we close to splitting anyhow.
I call dibs.
How’s her cooking?!
She’s mexican and black so it’s in her DNA to cook good.
Just have to deal with the superhuman sass and jealously.
Sass, superhuman? I’ll just hang out with the girls I know, I’ll be better off with the ones I know, and who I only see as buddies, nothing more, I have no reason to see them as such.
Her neck and eyes rolls while swearing in spanglish, she would break you.
Luckily I am absolutley 100% insane so nothing hurts, I just laugh off everything!
I kick a lot of shitty comic retailers in this ass with this post: http://wp.me/sZr1Y-3646
What were your final thoughts, Jose? I’m glad I used anti-social correctly. I haven’t been able to use the write the word irony in a creative sentence since we started conversing! 😉
Final thoughts? You need to open a comic shop and hire me as your manager.
But seriously, I’ll probably comment further on your post when I sober up. Maybe sometime late tomorrow. 🙂
Sounds like a plan. 🙂
I can’t believe someone tattooed the Simpsons’ Comic Book Guy on his ass.
That guy should have just gone out and looked for a girlfriend.
Chances are good he didn’t find one hence the tattoo.
That tat pretty much precludes him from dating a girl under 200 lbs.
Hey, ballsack, what do you think of your boy Justin from CBC rapping? You probably bought that song on Itunes last week, right?
Ya, ya, I know you don’t have a MP3 player but you still love him.
Haven’t been to any of their shows in weeks. Can’t afford to do anything until I find a fucking job. This economy is brutal. I’ve been looking since the end of March and things are starting to get really tight for me. But I’m sure Justin did a fine job.
Now I feel bad about my good fortune, I have to choose between two jobs.
It’ll work out Sacky
Hope so, dude.
Aw hell, I didn’t know about that. Fuck, that sucks. Shit…
I totally feel you on the lack of funds dude. This economy is balls. I’m lucky that I could even find a job out there.
It’s all about who you know and who owes you a favor Sacky, start going through that cellphone and call in favors.
Or just ask friends and family for leads on work.
Trust me, dude. I’ve been harassing people to death. I worked in finance, then (stupidly) quit my job to travel for a year. I had no idea the economy would still be this fucking brutal. Every company in my old field has a hiring freeze. It’s ridiculous. I even tried applying to every comic shop in NYC, figuring I could easily get a job there until I found something better, but even they’re not hiring.
Damn, I don’t know what to say.
Hey ballsack, wanna move to Texas and open a comic shop?
It’s funny… two days ago, my parents informed me that they’ll selling the house I grew up in and want to move either to Southern California or Texas. And I think they’re leaning towards Texas. My dad’s always loved San Antonio.
I’m about to just start buying my shit online. I’m sick of the shops around me. I used to be good friends with the owner of my LCS (I’ve been going there for what seems like forever) but now he’s slowly leaving and the co-owner is dick.
He’ll pull shit for me that I dropped months ago and then expect me to buy it. I hadn’t noticed till the other day when I looked through my stack and saw Green Lantern issues. I’ve never read Green Lantern.
He makes you buy stuff you don’t want? That ain’t right. I wouldn’t go back there again. Are there other shops in your area?
Heck– Your LCS guy is EXACTLY the kind of thing I’m talking about.
I haven’t bought any of it. Last time I went in he was all pissed about me not buying the shit he pulled. I ignored him but don’t intend on going back. I could see if I was a random dude off the street, but I’ve been going there for YEARS! Where’s the fucking loyalty?
Ballsack, the other one down the street from the one I go to is kinda dirty. Plus, it’s the one that tried to charge me extra for Zantanna #1 because it was a “first edition”. That was hilarious.
You know Heck I hear http://www.dreamlandcomics.com is a great place to shop on the internet.
Actually J, I was just thinking about starting my subscription with you guys. 😀
Insideman is kinda pleased with our service, I am sure if you have any questions on what to expect he would be happy to answer them.
Is it a two week wait for books to be shipped?
You can choose for your books to shipped to you weekly or bi-weekly.
Heck put foot too ass next time you see that lcs guy.
Are we talking any girls? Because I’m pretty sure a hooker would at least laugh at it– as long as she was paid up front.
So Mark Millar’s Nemesis is going to be directed by Tony Scott. Any chances that’ll drag Mark into films full time? Most of them already stink.
If it kills his career like it did Frank Miller than yes.
Oh he definately should direct and fail.
It will ruin Tony Scot’s career. Bank on it. What the fuck is Scott thinking? That comic is only two issues in and is already fucking awful.
Mark Millar is like some kinda weird Leprechaun, the dude is either magical or has a enchanted fourleaf clover. I’ve never seen a comic creator this lucky.
Apparently, if you punch a Leprechaun in the head hard enough they will turn into gold coins.
And I think with that I’m clocking out.
Maybe that’s why his comic book work has suffered lately is because he is brain damaged.
Every time a fanboy spots Millar punch him in the head!
He he. later Deemar.
I think J wants more comments on the capsule reviews, and since I already did that I think I will check out now.
A Nemesis film would just be a dire-hard rip off of The Dark Knight.
How is he so goddamn successful and I’m still poor?
Write a comic about an asshole who likes to take alot of human lives and has sex while doing it. Make sure he says “fuck” every 10 seconds for maximum effect.
Did you just describe Scarface?
Ha! he did, he did!
The second issue of OMIT surprised me by being just as bad as the first.
However I impulse bought the shit outta Marvel Universe Vs. Punisher and liked it, plus got an issue of Scarlet for free. Not a bad week.
You know, Ironmuskrat and I put a lot of time and effort into actually writing capsule reviews this week and no one is giving a shit…except for MSpot. Just needed to vent.
I’m gonna read it asshat.
I read them, I actually saw it on Facebook first.
Oh..that’s ok then. 🙂
I read them you bastard 😛
I read every one of them right after you put them up but what am I gonna say? I read trades and hardcovers.
I tell you what– I’ll come back in 6 to 8 months and tell you what I REALLY think! 😉
heh, i give a shit! i read those reviews and left a comment before i even pulled up the open thread to see what you degenerates have been up to all night! 😉
Alright I’m outta here, talk too you guys Tuesday, unless I find a spot with wifi in Savannah.
Holla J, check your inbox.
Have fun filming dude!
Step Up 3-D gets a 9? This culture is so sad.
I feel sorry for Grace having to go through that.
Don’t front. That movie’s gonna be off the chain.
I think it will actually be off the hook.
Is this the SAME Grace Randolph who does comics!?
Mic worked fine in 2009. 😉
How does it feel to have The Unwritten Vol 2 TP named after you?
Creepy? Cool? Litigious?
I knew I shouldn’t have told Mike to quit writing X-Men (because it was sucking out his soul). 🙂
I actually hadn’t seen that… So thanks for pointing it out to me! 🙂
A cute gal that does flicks AND comics, I wish they made more of those. 😉
Actually, it was refreshing seeing people enjoy something for once… Even if it was, you know, probably crap.
Old, creepy white guy who uses dance movies to clear his head of the country’s financial problems was hilarious.
Who DOESN’T use dance moves to clear their head of the country’s financial problems?
I use alcohol.
He oughta ne more concerned they just charged him an extra $9 for that shit. I don’t care how off the chain, hook, line or sinker it is.
“be” not “ne”
J when you get to episode 9 of persona trinity soul it will crack you up
karl pilkerton is a genius
ricky and steven owe him an apology
Ok, so I know i’ve been talking about Scott Pilgrim quite a bit lately (who hasn’t?), but i just finished reading the first few chapters of vol.6 and i’m realizing just how important and special this book really is.
Now, i may be partial being that i’m in my 20’s and from Toronto, but even if you haven’t seen a thousand awesome bands at Lee’s Palace or experienced the soul crushing gauntlet that is Honest Ed’s, there is still going to be something there for you.
I have to thank Jose and everyone else who talked it up and convinced me to step out of my super hero comfort zone and give it a chance. It is seriously like my Watchmen. Easily in my top 5 maybe top 3, favorite things i’ve ever read (and i’m not even finished it yet).
I’ll be sure to follow up when i do finish it, but damn, it is so sad knowing that it’s so close to ending. I almost don’t want to finish it! It’s going to leave a void in my very being! This book warms my cold, cold heart. 🙂
Thank you Bryan Lee O’Malley.
You’re welcome Pobra.
The Unwritten Vol 2 TP comes out next week. I know you’ve been waiting for that.
Excellent! Thanks for the heads up.
just to further entice you to migrate north J :
and of course, we tend to produce women like this:
Believe me, I know the type of women Canada produces. Emily Haines, Leslie Feist, Kathleen Edwards and Tegan & Sara to only name a few. No further enticement needed.
Everything is better in Canada.
That’s right Jose, in Canada our women are THE BEST!!! 😛
Kirkman does make a good point.
Yes, he does. I also hope the public never tires of Walking Zombies or gets upset if Invincible doesn’t age past 25… Because he has NAPALMED EVERY FUCKING BRIDGE he’s ever traveled.
Of course, if the Walking Dead TV series ends up half as good as the comic. He never has to worry for money every again.
Kirkman beyond a shadow of a doubt is in my top 10 favorite writers of today. That said I don’t really have a counterpoint to what he said. I do think what he said was a tad disingenuous though.
Is Marvel stretching the parameters of what is all age accessible? No doubbt.
Is much of what Marvel is doing and some of what DC is doing, gratuitous? Abssolutely
But the question that I would ask Mr. Kirkman is “does he go into comicbook shops around the country and make sure that his “independent” work is set outside of arm’s reach of children that in most cases could pick up an issue of Invincible and see Omniman beat the tar out of his son too within an inch of his life as easily as they can pick up an issue of the Avengers and see the Sentry disembowel Ares.
Now I can only speak on the shops here in Michigan, but the ones that I’ve seen thus far, Invincible hasn’t been at the very tops of the shelves..making it near impossible for a child to reach.
So while Kirkman may technically be right with his statement, I do believe he’s viewing things from a skewed perspective.
Man, I was trying so hard to be a non contrarion for the month of August 🙂
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU PHIL! 🙂
I believe Kirkman is talking about tentpole franchises at Marvel and DC like Spidey, Avengers, Batman, Green Lantern and the like so I do not think he being disingenuous at all. He is not talking about indies or Vertigo. He is talking about those big name comics that have been around for decades and SHOULD be able to be read be all ages. He says in that quote he is NOT writing Walking Dead or Invincible for all ages.
From jump I pretty much figured he was talking about the big 2’s mainstream popular titles, and I never had any qualms about the fact he was writng his comics for an older audience. His personal philosophy in fact is under no scrutiny.
What I question is his naivete if he thinks little Johnny or MarySue can’t reach the latest ish of Invincible as easily as the latest issue of Ultimate Avengers.
From what I’ve seen The Walking Dead is generally moved to a less accessible area in most comic shops, but Invincible is usually fitting somewhere with the Mainstreams. So even if Rob is contending that M and DC are overstepping their bounds by having questionable material within younger folks reach, perhaps he should take a more proactive approach and insist that Invincible not be sitting right next to the material he finds so objectionable.
He’s trying to ride the moral highgrond by saying at least he’s writing for an older audience, but he’s not keeping track where his product is being placed. It makes him come across like he’s blowing smoke!
Kirkman has NO control where retailers shelve his book. It’s a bit ridiculous to throw that fault on to him. He is NOT talking about the “physical” access to the books.
I think you are missing the point a little bit. He IS talking about the MAIN books. HE IS talking about Spidey and the rest of the titles I listed above. If little JOhnny saw Invincible on the rack next to Spider-Man 9 times out of 10 Johnny is going to PICK Spider-Man or Batman or ANY superhero who has a fucking tv show, movie or lunchbox OVER Invincible. To put Invincible in the SAME category as those other books makes no sense.
Kirkman is talking about violence and mature situations IN MAIN STREAM comics. Invincible in no where close to being main stream. Kids should be able to read the monthly Spidey or Avengers like we did. The fact that those books are no longer suitable for all ages is the point Kirkman is making and he is right.
Clearly we’re not gonna change each others’ mind on this subject, and while there’s more that I can add .. I figure life is short and we both probably have our dead horses that need continued beating elsewhere 🙂
Besides it’s time for me to start scrambling up some tofu for breakfast
Well I am off to party like crazy at a fair, see ya’ll later! 😛 SO EXCITED!!!
have fun V! just remember, hard liquor and amusement park rides do not mix… wait, of course they do!
They usually end up with the ferris wheel riders below you getting a pre-eaten churro/nacho bath too. 😉
Oh I am back! And I didn’t drink, watching one of my friends aalmost puking his guts out cause he was so scared of heights was enough to make me snot want to drink. I wanted a beer or two, but watching him one the rides was SOOOOOOOOOO funny, I had to keep alcohol out of my system.
All right guys, I’m off to my mom’s house for some drunken video game action with my bro. Have a good one lads and lasses.
My GF just came back from the grocery store and the fucking elevator was out. I brought all the stuff up three flights of stairs (my condo has 20+ foot ceilings so it was really like 6 flights of stairs).
I can guarantee you I do not want to eat ANY of that shit that badly.
Jose, why don’t you ever mention Walking Dead? I know you love Invincible so I have always found it odd that you don’t mention WD or Wolfguy.
Being a newbie to the nation– I’m sure you have explained this… But not to me.
AND IT IS ALL ABOUT ME.
I read Walking Dead at the beginning and loved it…but then Tony Moore left as the artist and I just could not get into the new art. I will eventually get back to it and catch up with the trades but that’s why I am currently not reading it.
Astounding Wolf Man is a decent book for the most part but, again, just never really got into it.
I hope this answer pleases you and your ego. 🙂
Insideman You’ve been here long enough that you cant use that excuse “newbie”
your officially infected 😉
Alright, I am closing up shop here at work so I’ll see you guys later tonight…if anyone decides to show up.
By showing up do you mean open chat tonight ? 🙂 Or another epic match of us in Street Fighter?
I’m just glad I got my cable back, now I caN watch some adult swim anime.
No, I was just talking about on here. Really got nothing going on tonight. I am going to try to beat FFXIII. I keep thinking I am at the end but it just keeps going.
Have you been liking it tho? From all I saw, it lacked a certain “zest” that previous FF games had. I really only ever loved 6, 7 (kinda) and 10. The others were still good and all just not my cup of tea.
Would you safely say 13 is worth renting? Or am I better off just going with Demon’s Soul (which I CONTINUOUSLY) keep putting off -___-
I have been liking it a lot. I liked XII a lot too and every hated it.
Totally worth a rent but it does take a while (like 10 hours or so) till the game really gets good. A bit easy at the beginning. I am quite happy I bought it. Haters gonna hate I guess.
As soon as I beat this I am going to start Demons Souls.
Yes, I am waiting for both these titles to hit price lows. I’ve never really played RPGs before but at the right price,I’m gonna get them.
Just like my books, I have a backlog!
No surprise there, I’m sure. 😉
You can find FFXIII and Demons Souls for $30 new right now.
The hardest part for me is not hearing Uematsu in the game (same with 12.) You get so use to hearing a musical messiah and then well… yeah
ANYWAY, Demon’s Soul is from what I hear, a dark glorious J-RPG and I’ve been craving one for a while now. We’ll have to do some raids or missions together 🙂
(I think once u hit a certain level you can play with other online characters.)
Mike, I really dig the music in XIII and will pick up the soundtrack. I haven’t bought a game OST in a long while. Check out some of the music on youtube. The new “battle theme” is good. Not gonna lie, the music has a very different feel from Uematsu but I still enjoy it. Some of the music has a anime OST feel to in in a good way. Kinda like the Rahxephon OST.
Who’s this artist? That was rather good. The first and third I enjoyed. It’ll be a while before we hear music as good as FFX but this was nice actually. Thank u for the enlightenment!
Speaking of anime too, have you heard of EDEN OF THE EAST? Its a current anime that aired last year. We’ve discussed before, I recall, about how 90’s anime is the best and current animes can’t top it. Well, damn. EDEN OF THE EAST is amazing Jose! It has the same spirit, energy, and motivation that GHOST IN THE SHELL and AKIRA had but with a more humor and political approach. Tonight I’m finishing up with episode 11 and can’t WAIT to see how it ends man.
I’d be a bit curious to hear your thoughts on it…
Masashi Hamauzu. He was actually the co-composer on FFX.
Haven’t seen Eden of the East. It’s THAT good, huh? My curiosity is piqued. I’ll have to look for it. Thanks.
Episodes one is a confusing one. Episodes two and three are so fucking good man. From there on out its all subjective to the viewer but 2/3 were my favorite thus far.
Clearly its not the next EVANGELION but its good for a current anime that’s for sure.
So, none of that loli shit, right?
The trailer shows a bit of the mature side of it, along with a few humor moments.
Oh, did I mention the opening theme song was written by Oasis?
Ummm…no you didn’t. NOW I have to see this!
Well, there’s one scene (possible spoiler – but no plot details revealed) with a women acting like viki vale in the all star batman comic (if you can catch that reference) but that’s it. AND she’s a grown woman, and it kinda relates to the story, its not random crap.
its actually more political than anything.
I just finished the series just now, and overall I’d say its a decent anime. In the beginning its definitely better than the way it ended for me, but the ending was good, the Japanese seem to have a good grip on resolution, something you’d never find in a Millar comic.
But I’d say this is a rare gem in a decade of poor follow ups to legendary shows.
Cool. I’ll check it out.
Man, I must be getting close to the end here in FFXIII because the game is really handing me my ass. Fuck it got REAL difficult.
Have you ever played Suikoden Tactics?
Haha, man, I remember that game. It felt like it was written by Neil Gaiman or something haha. But like most rpg’s, Suikoden Tactics brought out all my anger ><
Ya, Suikoden Tactics got crazy hard at the end. I love that game though. One of my favorite RPGs ever. I made it through the game without anyone dying.
Found Eden of the East. I’ll watch the first couple of episodes later tonight and let you know what I think.
I just saw Girl Who Played With Fire. Check out my review then go see the movie before Reese Witherspoon stars in the remake!
If the link doesn’t work click on my name.
I want to see this so bad. I think it’s coming out on blu ray in a few months.
There were maybe 7 people total in the theater I saw it at.
On a more positive note, I think the third film arrives in the fall as well.
I love that they feel the need to translate the “En Film Av Daniel ALfredson” title card for us know-nothing Americans who don’t like to “read” our films.
I would like to kiss whoever made that decision. 🙂
Has anyone else read Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer?
“Not I” said the Papa Bear.
That surprises me.
That was a funny little book.
Shit, if you could get rid of this comment J. That would be much appreciated.
Yeah, that was a fun little book.
It’s a boy!
and send the after birth to Miller or Bendis.
Awesome! Congratulations Morlock! I really am happy for you and your wife. 🙂
GR8 news M-50 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Belated congrats, Morlock + Wife + Little Son Joselliott
congrats morlock wow well done!
and i wish long and many happy memories
Cool, Morlock Jr.
Hands up to the new CCW daddy, and his baby son!
CONGRATS TO THE DADDY! Sip some scotch for me, sir.
Is anyone else reading Iron Man Legacy and if so are you enjoying it? I just thought of this while viewing some old ccw episodes where the guys are raving about Invincible Iron Man and was curious as to whether anyone had tried Legacy out.
I read the first two issues of Legacy and though they were just ok. There is really no need for another Iron Man monthly.
Yeah I would have liked to start reading Invincible when it first came out, just so happened when I started looking at Marvel, Iron Man Legacy was at #1 so I jumped on it, and have enjoyed it so far. I did just pick up the Invincible Annual so may start on that book as well if I like it.
Did anyone here ever play any of the Driver games?
I haven’t. The only driving games I ever got into were the Burnout games.
I was wondering because it’s getting it’s own comic mini.
Driver 2 was pretty decent, but the third one was just a Grand Theft Auto rip off the only difference is the main character is a cop.
Never mind it’s just a one shot.
What are your thoughts on Batman Inc. Jose. Do you think it will succeed or fail?
From what I have heard about it? Fail.
Ouch, yeah, it sound like another Morrison high concept book, and I haven’t been a fan of when he does books like that. I enjoy things like We3 and Joe the Barbarian where the concept doesn’t get in the way of the action.
Here’s the thing. We already have a Green Lantern Corps. We will soon have a Flash Corps thanks to Geoff Johns’ new shitfest Speed Force. And NOW we will have a bunch of douchies running around as Batman? Sorry, but that is just too much for me to take. What the fuck is going on at DC?
I think it is just another way for them to compete with Marvel if can have 37 Avengers and related teams than they will have 38 different Corps. I know that sounds stupid and as I was typing it it sounded stupid, but that is the only thing I can think of.
As stupid as that sounds I totally agree with you. DC is churning out the shit just like Marvel in an attempt to become #1 publisher.
I would like to thank you for agreeing with my stupidity. 🙂
He he, you should HEAR some of the things that I think to myself but do not say out loud. 🙂
If you knew what I know you would wake up screaming.
And yes I did steal that from Top Gear when describing The Stig, but it still applies.
Man, Top Gear only had 6 episodes to this new season. What’s up with that?
The one on BBC America? Because if so, it’s supposed to be the “lost episodes” or episodes that never made it to America, but I feel like I’ve seen them before. In reality, it’s just filler till they formatted the new series for American TV.
No, the ones that just finished airing on the BBC. BBC America can suck my nuts.
I always wait and watch top gear after the season is over and I can watch them all back to back over the span of a few days. Until this last season I did the same thing with Doctor Who.
Yeah BBC America sucks hardcore.
Grant Morrison is a madman
Tee hee 🙂
ive dropped morrison ‘s batman like 3 times while ive enjoyed batman and robin quite a bit and i finally figured out why after reading batman 700
morrison has no desire to write batman as is, he wants to do a what if, elsewhere world, all star, batman book. it strikes me as odd because morrison jla was one of the “defining moments” for the contemporary batman. if not defining certainly solidifying. and now it seems morrison wants get very far away from the persona he helped to popularize. the characterization i like by the way. now he is talking using the kids toon brave and the bold as an inspiration? they should give him an out of continuity book so he play all he wants it will sell.
Can anyone confirm if the Ed Brubaker CatWoman comics are worthy of reading/buying?
I can’t. BUT I can confirm that the Will Pfeifer and David Lopez Catwoman issues are TOTALLY worth buying!
Looks promising by the covers already! Thanks!
On an unrelated but I’m sure, always fun to know fact, I hit shuffle on my Itunes and Konya Wa hurricane from bubblegum crisis just came on. 🙂
Little things like that you know?
I just watched Benjamin Button again and now I’m fucking sad. 😦
Now you know how I feel everyday of my fucking life. Hooray?
Dont be so sad, we all love you, though J. Layman loves you more.
I remember that movie. The ending got to me. That narration piece was so perfectly spoken IMO.
The ending is just so, so sad. The whole film is kind of about saying goodbye; how everything is fleeting. I didn’t realize that the first time I saw it.
J, I feel your pain bro. I’m sending you an air hug over the interweb.
If I could only make a new word to describe my Saturday…huh…I have it… my Saturday was Fantawesome! 😛
that’s how i felt about my friday
Sounds like a Fanta commercial 😛
Actually for the CCW Blog the word is new, I’m going to use that word when I rate graphic novelsI read. My friends actually came up with that word, lol 🙂
were you thinking something like this?
Those crazy Japanese.
I was wondering if someone could name some good trades with Invisible Woman. Something that displays her powers.
I mean she is the strongest on the FF, right?
You don’t need to buy a trade. Go by Spider-Man/Fantastic Four issues #1 and #2 written by Christos Gage and drawn by Mario Alberti. It’s a new mini. Invisible Woman kicks some ass in that series.
the kids line marvel adventures has a very interesting take on sue she’s an avenger with a crush on captain america
So after last night, I decided it’s time for a new word to come to the CCW Blog, and I just made a post about it, and you can see it right here
I’ve been reading some things lately:
– X-Men Legacy by Mike Carey. Meh.
– Busiek/Perez Avengers. Very good. I did not expect to enjoy what I’ve read of their run as much as I did. I expected a good read, but this took me by surprise and I will definitely keep reading their run.
– Hobgolin Lives by Roger Stern. I love how it took fifteen years to reveal Hobgoblin’s true identity. Still, Hobgoblin is one of my favorite Spider-Man villains. Can you imagine if it took 15 years to reveal Rulk’s identity?!? lol
Hey EA! Where the HELL is the new SSX you stupid fucks? Your company is dead to me until I get a new SSX.
It’ll be okay. Big hug.
You’re right. I’m just acting silly. Thanks for setting me straight.
Because it’s informational…and stuff.
Why do I get the feeling that you watched this video not because you have a dirty keyboard?
That is a very good question.
So what did you have to clean off your keyboard, Jose?
And did you have to do it before or after you watched the vid?
Oh, the… irony?
This lady apparently left a job in Hawaii for one in San Fran. Boy, is she gonna regret that when she’s older.
I don’t know, I spent 7 days in Maui and couldn’t wait to get the fuck out of there after day 3.
“Taking Jose to San Fran and then to Maui”.
OK. Just put that on my Bucket List.
Awesome! Can I be Morgan Freeman?
Absolutely, I am far too white to ever pass as Mr. Freeman. 😉
BTW, liked her grey shirt but than the purple one… BY far.
Ummm…look up “Veronica Belmont Wiggle” on youtube. You may like that “shirt” better.
Yes. Yes I did.
Actually, to clarify… I still liked the V-Neck Grey Shirt from the “how to clean your keyboard” vid better.
It’s the BRA she used with the black t-shirt that I fancy.
If she would just pair the casual bra she used with the black t in the wiggle vids with the grey t…
Well, then we’d all have to go back to the “how to clean our keyboard” vid again!
This vicious never ending cycle can only end in HEART ATTACKS for all of us, I fear. 😉
Found this on some site:
Iron Man 2 wasn’t the movie Jon Favreau wanted to make. Marvel interfered heavily with his work on the movie and turned the project into an infomercial for The Avengers. Favreau felt the movie was rushed into production (and if you followed the development process you know it was) and they pushed him into making it without a fully realized script. Iron Man 2 wasn’t the movie he wanted to make and because of that, if there’s an Iron Man 3, there’s every reason to think he won’t be back. Marvel doesn’t want to pay him and Favreau may not want to deal with more Marvel interference.
Favreau really wanted to direct The Avengers but Marvel didn’t want to pay for him. Their negotiations with Favreau to secure him as the director of Iron Man 2 were difficult and Favreau worked out a deal that got him paid more money. Marvel wasn’t willing to pay that kind of money again when it came time for The Avengers, and so even though Favs wanted to direct their superhero team-up movie, they didn’t want him. Instead Marvel has made it a point to seek out cheaper talent to direct all of their subsequent movies. Joss Whedon was hired to direct The Avengers and while he’s a mega-talented director he’s also a much cheaper hire than someone like Favreau.
This is quite interesting.
I haven’t read the article yet– but everything cballsack wrote from the article sounds spot on.
Otherwise, this hypothetical different director BS will ALL end the minute Downey Jr refuses to do Iron Man 3 with anybody but Favreau. They can replace Norton (who WAS a huge pain in the ass) by Downey is the CURRENT FACE of their STUDIO.
They will NOT replace him anytime soon. If he wants Jon, Marvel will do whatever they need to keep Jon. Period.
You’d think they’d be smarter than this. If Iron Man was soo successful because of Favreau’s hard work… why would we interfere with more of the man’s hard work?
You know Marvel’s not gonna let a little thing like a successful movie and a proven director stop them from fudging things up. Just wait ’til I3…when Bendis makes his directorial debut! What could go wrong? Well off the top of my head, I’d say; We’d get a half hour movie that on for four hours. Let the implosion begin.
And here I thought that being bought by Disney would improve the quality of their movie department.
Where did you get that idea, Luiz?
it will be the EXACT opposite! Of course, they may also teach Kevin Feige how to pay people what they’re worth… Which will be a good thing.
I’m still waiting for Disney Zombies. I can envision it now;
Mickey: Hiya kids, have any of you seen my dog, Pluto? No? You know why?
Well I’ll tell ya, kids. If you look in Mickeys bathroom…… you’ll see that I didn’t flush. You see all those floaty bits kids? That used to be Pluto.
Come back next week kids, when I’ll do what Minnie has always wanted me to do, but I don’t think she’ll like my way of “eating” her
Well gotta go now kids, Porky’s passing by. I know he’s a different company, but I’m so much feeling like bacon, right now
Here’s an interesting article I found on BBC News
Seems the US Military is turning to Manga to teach Japanese children about US/Japan relations
I’d watch it. But that’s probably cuz I ain’t got a job.
I would like to thank everyone on this blog for their kind thoughts and good wishes toward my family. I honestly don’t know how much I’ll be able to post in the future, but I want you to know that this blog, and all the posters are awesome!
You are welcome Morlock. Stop by whenever you can.
Looks like Superman can’t jump! Plus, by the look of the wardrobes, he’s trapped in the 80’s.
I like JMS, but this storyline (while a good idea) is just being really poorly written and conceived.
I kicked MORE retailer ass in PART 2 of “Quit Giving Your Money to Assholes!” Seems everybody reminded me of two very important points I left out of the first post:
Has anyone ever read any of the Jeffery Brown books? Can anyone recommend them?
I have read a few of his books. If you can get past the art (not that it’s bad, it’s just not everybody’s cup of tea) they are very enjoyable books if not a bit on the depressing side at times.
