Dear Marvel Universe

All is forgiven!

I’ve griped about the Ultimate Universe, I was wrong. You were right and I am here, crawling on my knees looking to come back to our two bedroom apartment.

I’m even willing to let you have the big room, but only if you keep up the “X” series a little longer, something to put to rest the old Marvel universe.

If you keep up the quality of at least the Ultimate X-Men I promise to eat all my greens and cheer loudly whenever the Marvel Logo appears on any screen within my field of view.

BTW, Affleck was the bomb in Daredevil and Phantoms YO!!

You know You're Right

It’s such a tragedy that “You know you’re Right” is such a good God damn song. Nirvana put out some real classics, and this was one of them.

Sad, and silly; Kurt Cobain may have simply been unable to cope with fame, or perhaps not, we may never know for sure.

I wonder if we would have given this much focus to a boy band member had they topped themselves?

BTW: Ben Affleck is not the Bomb in the new Daredevil Movie if the trailer where he gives a voice over is any indication. He sounds flat and stilted, and hammy. As per usual you may say, but I’d had high hopes for this one, which seems to capitalize upon that great razorbat scene in Spider-man. Shoot.

When will the Dark Knight Strike Again?

I’m a comics fan (No Duh).

I’ve been a comics fan since I was able to read, and have a collection to show it. I’m not one of those guys who puts them in bags then puts them away forever. I keep my comics nearby and in easy to access boxes and containers so I can read them. I read my comics all the time, addict fashion. Usually I get my fix from buying large volumes of comics in bulk at cheap prices. Since moving to the states I’ve had to buy my comics in spurts, with no real hope of bulk discounts.

Sadly, I’ve been thrashing my fists against the amazon.com order status screen for months now as I wait for my copy of “The Dark Knight Stikes Again.” When I asked, rhetorically “where the heck is my copy!?!?!” a friend replied:

“lol! still being written, that’s where it is.”

Mr. Miller, are you still working on this, the last two issues have been excellent, so I can only hope this latest installment that is so very late is also as high caliber. Perhaps it is not. At this point I’d be happy with a two pager that opens with Supergirl wiping the moon with Brainiac and then smacking the crap out of Lex Luthor. Please Mr. Miller, get this next issue out soon!

GTA3 — Be a Bad Man!

Grand theft Auto 1 & 2 sucked

I thought I might say that right off the top to ensure that readers would know where I come from when I am speaking about the Grand Theft Auto Series.

I abhor the idea that there are games out there that glorify crime in the way that these games have done in the past. Add to that fact that the games went out of their way to insult the player and you have a formula for suck cess.

All that aside, I have to say that Grand Theft Auto Three (GTA3) is a major leap forward in the series in terms of fun; sadly not much in terms of content.

I have truly enjoyed being the misanthrope that I always wanted to be, thus far. Since I haven’t given much thought to the actual missions et al, I may have missed the real meat of the game. Perhaps not. In any measure, this game has been real fun and I suggest that any adult check it out. Please keep out of the hands of small children.

Ten most Shocking Revalations in Star Wars Episode 2

Presented for your entertainment and in no way meant to infringe upon the copyrighted materials we blatently rip off already: The Top Ten Most Shocking Revelations in Star Wars Episode Two: Attack of the clones!

10. Luke and Leia were not fathered by Darth Vader as previously revealed, but instead Padme was impregnated by a confused Obi-Wan just back from another “visit” to the bars on Corsuicant.

9. Mace Windu is more than just a bad ass Jedi, he also moonlights as a singer in Jabbas Pleasure Dome.

8. Bobba Fett is a clone.

7. Bobba Fett is not nearly as annoying as Annikan was as a child.

6. Smoking exists in the seedy unerworld of the Republic, however the PFY that pushes them does not have the force powers to push them.

5. Darth Sidious likes to arrange flowers and ballet dance in his spare time between enslaving politicians and kidnapping planets.

4. R2D2 Can climb stairs, fly and repair almost anything, but cannot look DOWN.

3. Ewan Macgregor is a surprisingly convincing Obi-Wan Kenobi, however what was more impressinve is when he played to dual role of Obi-Wan and the New queen of Naboo.

2. Lucas bought the rights to the “sound of music”

1. Anakin Skywalker was a know-nothing, loudmouth bitchy punk.

Hilary Rosen Sez

“For the first time ever, our end-of-the-year survey of heavy music buyers showed that 23 percent of our heaviest buyers actually said that they bought less music because they were able to get what they wanted for free,” said Hilary Rosen, chairman and CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America, which has led the legal fight against Napster and other file-sharing services. quoted from this article at CNN.com.

While it is just a quote in the middle of an “are the lables dead..no, no they are not sir” article; this quote is the kind of comment we can expect form someone who is fiercely fighting to keep a fat bottom line.

As the file sharing revolution continues its perceived assault on the RIAAs chattel, I mean artists, we can expect for and more of this propaganda, I’m sure.
