The Brave and the Bold — a series that teamed up Batman with a different guest star each month — was one of my favorite comics as a kid, largely because it introduced me to a host of other cool characters in the DC Universe. Here’s a great site that creates covers for team ups that never happened. But should have!
This is a huge precedent by the Supreme Court. The fallout should be interesting to watch. Not like how an NFL game is interesting to watch. More like how the NFL draft is interesting to watch. That is, not very fun but incredibly important. And you really shouldn’t watch it at all unless you’re in it. Hmm, I think I took a wrong turn somewhere around that last analogy.
Eh, what the hell. They didn’t owe us anything. TV is just like any other art form (laugh if you must), but we’re so accustomed to being spoon-fed everything that we hate anything that’s open to interpretation or doesn’t have a concrete answer.
No one who came to the island ever got all the answers, either, so why should we?
Alternatively, I think Lost was best explained in the following phrase: “Fuckin’ magnets; how do they work?”
”—katekate is squared, a commenter on Gawker, who sums up the “Lost” series finale and viewers’ reactions to it perfectly … and even uses an Insane Clown Posse lyric to do it.
It’s an apt analogy — iPhone/iPad apps are causing urban flight from free online metro areas — but I think the author seems a little too blinded by the “prettiness” of apps and not the content. It’s like raving about your meal at the strip mall TGIFriday’s because of its kitsch but ignoring the small downtown tapas restaurant with the fabulous food you liked because its facade was a little bland.
Ultimately, it’s the content and functionality of even crudely designed sites like YouTube or Google still popular destinations and tools. That’s not going to change. What people are willing to pay for now — besides the status of having certain apps, whether they find them useful or not — is to have sites and tools that work well and look good doing it.
“You don’t have to be overly macho. You don’t have to be over-complimentary. Gain her respect. And that’s treating her as an equal. Don’t bullshit her. Treat her as a human being. Treat her as you would treat yourself. As soon as you have that respect from her, she’ll treat you with the same respect that you show. Then you fuck the shit out of her.”—John Curtis Holmes
Oh no. Megan Fox doesn’t have to star in “Transformers 3.” She must feel horrible. I imagine this is akin to finding out you’ve been fired from your jabbing your eye with a hot poker job. Sure, no more pay check. But also, no more hot poker to the eye.
I’m no Megan Fox fan, but, Nikki Finke, I think you’re overstating the death of her career. She’s not an actress. She’s a prop.
Toho’s monsters don’t begin their existences as bodysuits. Illustrators must first sketch out every atomic spike, nuclear fang, and cybernetic proboscis adorning their rubbery hides. Check out Toho’s designs for such classic kaiju as Mechagodzilla, Mothra, and Ghidorah.
My friend Karen Pojmann sent me this article. I only went to Mizzou for a semester and a half, but I tell everyone I took the fall for Jon Hamm after a midnight dance-off at Shattered went horribly, horribly wrong. We haven’t spoken since.
If you’ve never heard of Scott Pilgrim, do two things. First, punch yourself in the face for being such a stupid turd head. Second, check out the Scott Pilgrim books before you see the movie starring Michael Cera.
In the meantime, go to this link. It’ll make the face punch feel better.
