“Great. I’m helping a guy that everybody in the world either works for or wants to kill.”
Doc nodded. “That about sums it up.”
Today I’m Neal Adams. Breaking through my habits and traditional way of thinking through a cover. Doing something new and going against my own grain. I’ve got to shake myself out of this funk. — Ethan Van Sciver
oh, i thought you meant that you were going to create your own line of comics, put out a couple of issues of each, re-evaluate your company’s financial strategy, change your mind, begrudgingly accept freelance assignments from your former employers thereby banking on your legendary status, be treated like crap by those same former employers, then vow to never work for them again by trying (once again) to publish your own line of comics…thus, continuing your career cycle for the past 30 years… — Dexter T.

It is an animated fan film conceived by Tony Guerrero and animated by Mitchell Hammond. I like it.
It’s pretty simple, his movies were funny and most today are not. RIP.

Harold Ramis is funny. Harold Ramis was funny. Harold Ramis is dead. The world is poorer for the lack of Harold Ramis

Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my brilliant, gifted, funny friend, co-writer/performer and teacher Harold Ramis. May he now get the answers he was always seeking.
– Dan Aykroyd, February 24
Actor and Director Harold Ramis, who brought us Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Stripes, and directed wonderful films like Groundhog Day, passed away in front of his family, from complications of an autoimmune diseases.
Given the contributions he has made to our entertainment growing up, injecting fun into our lives, it’s not inappropriate to be saddened by his passing. Our condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones
If while watching NBC you hear the Adventures of Brisco County Jr come on it must be the Olymics
Stephen Graziano and Velton Ray Bunch composed original music for the series. Composed by Randy Edelman, the distinctive theme music gained recognition beyond the show’s following; in the mid-1990s, the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) hired Edelman to provide music for its sports coverage, including National Football League games and the Olympics. The music samples Edelman sent NBC included the Brisco theme, and by 1996 it was being used during coverage of the Olympics. NBC used it again as the theme for their coverage of the 1997 World Series. Edelman said, “It was original, and it seemed to have the right spirit. It’s got a very flowing melody, it’s triumphant, and it has a certain warmth. And it has at the end of it, what all television things like this have, a ‘button,’ an ending flourish that works really well if they need to chop it down into a 15-second thing.”
NBC continues using the theme in contemporary commercials for the Winter Olympics in Sochi. If you listen you’ll notice.
Now normally the theme for the Olympics is this:
It was even noted on the commentary track for the very first episode the Brisco County DVD set that the theme music ultimately outlived the series and very few of the people that hear it these days would know its origin. But if you listen and you hear this,
then it is fairly obvious. It is sad that this extremely underrated and completely perfect series ended before its time (likely because it was ahead of its time) but at least parts live on. Just not the parts I want.
I should think this might prove a little problematic.
John Hayward makes a very good point about “Saving Mr. Banks,” the new Disney-made film about a Disney production, and how it is very unfair to the creator of Mary Poppins by twisting the outcome of the disagreement that is central to the film.
What’s the one thing everyone is going to remember about Man of Steel in five years?*SNAP!*
You may think Katrina Bowden (of 30 Rock fame) is a nerd:
But this guy will set you straight:
I haven’t even watched this yet, because it’s almost 30 minutes long. All I can say is…”Rich boy” better be in there!
We got linked from an article over at CBR and I followed the link. Just seeing two scans of New Teen Titans by Wolfman and Perez on that page managed to get me to tear up. Dang, but that comic was powerful.
New Teen Titans #38, “Who Is Donna Troy?”, remains one of the best examples of a done-in-one 22-page killer story. I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like it. I’m sure there must be such people, but even they would have to concede that it is well-done and an effective use of the sequential art form. For kids born in the 1970s, this is the “Star Wars” of comic books.
And it’s also kind of the pinnacle. Half a decade later, the very same comic book team is doing “Who Is Wonder Girl?” and it takes five issues to tell and it’s no comparison.
The Huffington Post, the crapass internet rag that it is, pretended to be something of journalism and posted something that does not resemble actual journalism and was not true but pretended to be true. This lazy notion was that the wonderful television show House of Cards was being cancelled after the second season based on speculation casually thrown about by some low-level writer. In fact the plotlines for seasons three and four have been written for Mr Spacey and he has not announced a parting of the ways.
The show is not being cancelled. May those that wrote and published that story as truth be ejected from their chosen profession and be forced to toil unhappily in order to make a decent living.
Does this accurately represent the Gundam “Correct Century” timeline?
I’m not even certain what “Correct Century” means. I watched a good deal of a few shows within the continuity of the original series and some episodes in the continuities that are more fantastical but the graphic seems cut in bad places and my memory is a little rusty after ten years.
