Megan Fox won’t be in Transformers 3

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

MICHAEL BAY’S REVENGE! No More Megan; UPDATE: Suggested Replacements – Deadline.com.

Megan Fox, meanwhile, is claiming she chose not to be in the third one. Anyone who believes that she wouldn’t continue in her only profitable movies is gullible indeed.

Shia LaBeouf(?): “Indy 4 was a stinkbomb”

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Shia LaBeouf was brutally honest about Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull while promoting the new Wall Street sequel:

“I think the audience is pretty intelligent. I think they know when you’ve made … . And I think if you don’t acknowledge it, then why do they trust you the next time you’re promoting a movie. … We [Harrison Ford and LaBeouf] had major discussions. He wasn’t happy with it either. Look, the movie could have been updated. There was a reason it wasn’t universally accepted.”… Asked whether this was difficult to say, given his deep relationship with Spielberg, LaBeouf continued with the directness.  “I’ll probably get a call. But he needs to hear this. I love him. I love Steven. I have a relationship with Steven that supersedes our business work. And believe me, I talk to him often enough to know that I’m not out of line. And I would never disrespect the man. I think he’s a genius, and he’s given me my whole life. He’s done so much great work that there’s no need for him to feel vulnerable about one film. But when you drop the ball you drop the ball.”

As with George Clooney and “Batman and Robin”, Shia goes overboard in taking on a lot of blame that really belongs with the director/producers/writers.  It’s not his fault that he was told to swing from vines like Tarzan.

Christian Toto says: Time to stop the Shia hate.

This was rescued from the ancient vintage ComicBookResources’ Apr 20, 1999 TV Themes website. Incredibly a lot of the sound-files are now on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine servers and are not just dead links so they are available for download. (more…)

Something Horrible
Imagine what she can do with ‘Sound of Music’ or ‘My Fair Lady’

I’m not dead. I’m getting better! I feeeeeel happyyyyy!

Yeah, I’ve had a tough time keeping this blog going ever since I got the dogs. However, I’ve found more time for writing and audio editing lately.

About the podcasts: I feel like I’ve let Erik down. Erik Burnham and I have a huge inventory of podcasts ready to go, but the editing has been lagging. I still have one about reviewing what we got for Christmas…and it’s now MAY. I interviewed Erik about his announcement that he’s writing some A-Team comic books…and now they’re published!

One of the big problems is that my audio editor, Adobe Soundbooth, does not have a slicing tool. This is such a fundamental element of audio editing that its absence is astounding. I have a sound bite from a movie that I’d like to insert into our conversation, right? I should be able to just slice our conversation apart and drag the second half over, then insert the sound clip on another track, right? Nope. Can’t do it. What’s even more aggravating is that the software Soundbooth is based on, Cool Edit 2000, HAD A SLICING TOOL! The only reason I can see that they don’t do this is that Adobe thinks that the ONLY thing people will be editing is the soundtrack to a movie file.

In other news, I’m creating a Zazzle store. Look for some cool merch this next week.

Erik and I will be appearing at SpringCon in the Twin Cities next weekend. Hope to see you there! I’ll be wearing my new Zazzle shirts.

Finally…a new announcement today from Mr. Plinkett:
