yeah. not much news here. next monday the disease/network split will leave for the factory. It will take about a month after that for it to be completed. I’m waiting on some new action figures to arrive, Star Fox ds, and Idlewild. I turn 28 in 27 days. wow. such an old man. I’ll have my august movie picks up tommorow.

Wow. I can’t believe how much better this movie was than the first one, and how quickly Kevin Smith got me laughing. And its back to the old Kevin Smith in case your wondering. It’s crude, perverse, silly, and just plain wrong. Theres the obligatory pop culture references and a fight between trilogies,(lotr, and star wars). Jay and silent bob are back to their dancing, and there’s even a dancing nun. It’s nice to see Dante and Randall again, and I hope to see them in a few years time, plugging away with Clerks 3.
o.k. week. i decided not to pick up new avengers this week so it’s official im dropping that book just got boring. picked up loveless # 9 which is still pretty solid. also got civil war frontline # 4 which continues to put speedball through some torment. got to wonder whether marvel knows they are making him a better characther and if they still plan to kill him off. anyway, got to go to work. hope everyone is doing great!
We went to Adventureland on Sunday and I think it’s a pretty nice park out here in the middle of nowhere. One benefit that the six flags across the country could learn, is put up some trees! It was a very hot day but thanks to the parks trees and the raging rapids ride, this was not a hot day at all. Hey they even have a circus. Pretty fun little park if your driving near Des Moines.
So. It doesn’t get more official than a poster plastered all over StarTrek.com’s website does it? 2008 looks to be when we can boldly go again. Is it enough time? It will be six years since Nemesis. Will six years be enough of a break for the fans to hunger for more trek? Let’s hope so and let’s hope Abrams and Paramount are up to the task. I’m both excited and sick. Have you ever seen a more pixelated official poster? Ever?
Im odd when it comes to Shylaman. The films i think are his best, unbreakable, and now this one, most people think are his worst. I think Lady in the Water is leagues better than Signs or worse yet The Village. I think the only mistake with this film comes from Shylaman playing one of the main characthers. Otherwise it just feels right as a movie and Paul Giamitti, god i could watch that guy play any role. I mean any. He is truly amazing, and its a shame he doesnt have that oscar on his bedstand. Probably the first shylaman movie that kids could not be terrified through. In fact it reminds me alot of ghostbusters in tone. Without the comedy. Pretty good summer flick.
So next summer we get transformers and TMNT, spider man 3. Apple has the Turtles trailer up now. the cg looks better than I thought but does anyone else think they run like frogs not turtles. Humor seems to be intact though. Oh to be a geek in the new millenium. Were the children of the 80′s the best ever or what. Now bring me some Silverhawks. Yeah not likely.
Civil War # 3 came out this week and I gotta say Mcniven was the absolutely best choice for this book. the eyes on these heroes are phenomenal. They potray so much emotion. Storyline is superb and the moment some fanboys have been waiting for years happens on the very last page. Nicely done.
Nova # 4 Wraps up the mini series which leads into Annhilation a six part story. great. Nova has become something of a powerful hero in all this. and more Drax. nice. B+
Comic-Con starts tommorow. Are you looking forward to comic, toy or hollywood news? It will start dropping tommorow.
so the heat is everywhere in this country today. 90 or higher. ouch. the air is cranked and i’m left to play with the old fat cat and the new energetic kitten. oh the joys of summer.
Meanwhile a Secret Agent is reporting of an influx in the desire for sunkist. oh the horror. Where is Cool Spot hiding these days? remember him. he even had his own videogame. its amazing how many lame mascots the 80′s had. anybody remember the noid? yep. we were tortured our entire youth. Or are the kids of today missing out? Where have the mascots gone?
so the comic is doing really well and all the artists are very happy with the outcome. Im still saving for the disease/network split 7″ and then what? I think your going to be surprised as I am with some of our 2007 announcements. Some of them aren’t going to be quite physical, and some of them will be the start of a foundation of what we want lucky creature to be. And what is that exactly? Not a record label, not a comic book publisher, but something different entirely. I think the one thing that will make us what the creature is, will be this difference. We will release things when the need warrants. We will not stick to a mold, and we will not just be releasing things. We will be living them. And we hope you live some of it with us.
I’m toying with the idea, the definition of what my little hobby can be. Won’t you come along for the ride?
