Nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh linksssssspam! - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...
Nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh linksssssspam!
I have two Meaningful Entries in the works right now (1 = Vacation Recap! Now, with pictures! and 2 = Deadpool: Weapon, Chapter 6, which is Mostly Done) but right now...linky-link!

Read the 800 word prequel to Harry Potter.
Also, Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, and others wrote 800-word stories.

Dooce: The Three Best Bits of Relationship Advice I Have Ever Been Given

Via The Deadpool Bugle: Deadpool Team-Up will be collected in Secret Wars II Omnibus.
I really liked that issue - it was fun and had some interesting Wade backstory. Always a plus.

And speaking of Deadpool: OMG, the toys! The toysssssss!
I kinda totally want that T-Ray. Also, Deadpool with Thor wings. Also X-Man Deadpool.

...Also Weapon X Deadpool.

Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy Unveiled?
Will people kill me if I say he looks a bit like a pansy?

Let's observe a moment of silence for Mike Myers' sense of humor
Raise your hand if you wanted to throw things at the screen when you saw the trailer for the terrible new Myers movie I can't even remember the name of.

Ledger's family to attend new Batman premiere.
When I saw the trailer before Iron Man, I almost felt guilty for being so excited - but I'm sure Heath Ledger would want us to be excited. I'm glad his family will be going.

J.K. Rowling on the power of failure
Just get right back on that horse, folks.

Jon Favreau might not direct Iron Man 2
I can't believe Marvel would be that nuts. I mean, Iron Man was FREAKIN' AWESOME. One of the best comic-based movies ever, IMO. It's making them a mint. If they have to pay the guy a (reasonable) bit more for the next one, well, shoot. DO IT. Just give us a sequel as kick-ass as the first one.

Will Hancock ruin Iron Man 2?
Interesting - I could definitely see similarities between Hancock and the Demon in a Bottle Iron Man storyline.

Speaking of demons: FAQ: So you have a demon...

John Scalzi with a scathing commentary on Fox News calling Michelle Obama Barack's "baby mama"
(Oh no they di'int!) Seriously, read it, it's awesome AND makes excellent points.

A Little Family Spat Plays Itself Out in the Amazon Reviews
Reading this makes me sad. It especially makes me sad because I know someone who is friends with the author, and says she's a "remarkable woman." He's a good judge of character. To me, this means her father is most likely JUST as bad as he's made out to be in her book.

Robert Downey Jr. in Cowboys and Aliens
More funny RDJr.? SIGN ME UP.

Which brings me to: Robert Downey Jr. to be Sherlock Holmes?
Really? Well, honestly, he'd never be my first thought for it, but on the other hand, once I start thinking about it, it's not a half bad idea. On the OTHER other hand, they're not talking about Conan Doyle's (♥) version of Holmes. Which, ironically, is what I was thinking of when I considered whether RDJr. might be good for the role. I don't know the comic book version, but I'd kinda like to see him try his hand at ACD's version.

Christian Bale: 'The Joker' Did Not Kill Heath Ledger
Although it probably contributed to his lack of sleep, in all honesty. I mean, he himself said that. But no, I never really thought it drove him to death or anything.

Pics from Wolverine: Origins
Love love love. But WHERE'S MY DEADPOOL???

Hugh Laurie gets free Burger King for life, remains AWESOME while doing so.
Hugh Laurie is awesome. Also, Gold Card? WHUT?

Stan Winston, leader in movie practical effects work, has passed away.
After seven years battling cancer. O_o

Marvel wants DiCaprio or Pitt for Captain America
What, really? Please say this is a joke.

Via Neil Gaiman: Louis Leterrier wants to make a movie of 1602
That? Would be awesome.

And I'm done.

Heh, who in the Regency period didn't look like a pansy?

Hee, I know. They were all girlie girls. Except for Colin Firth.

That version of Holmes fills me utter horror; why even bother with Holmes, the ultimate reasoning machine, if you want a swashbuckling action hero? He's about intellect, yo!

It's not like there aren't plenty of other Edwardian/Victorian characters to pick from. Why not just remake Bulldog Drummond?

I know! Give me Original, Slightly Crazy and Possibly on Drugs But Awesomely Deductive Holmes.

About the Amazon review...it says at the end of that terrible drivel from the father that there's a 2nd part to what he's written, but I can't find any way to access it. Having gotten through all of that, I'd kinda like to see how he wraps it up. Do you know where part two is?? He's only got one review to his name... Very disturbing, the whole thing.

And ♥Stan Winston♥. I was just watching Michael Jackson's GHOSTS a day or two ago and being astonished AGAIN at how incredible his work was. He'll be very missed.

Not sure if Part II was up yesterday, but if you go to 1-star reviews, you can see both parts I and II today.

I showed my friend who knows the author. He is of the same opinion as me and Rosie O'Donnell. (Now THERE'S something I never thought I'd see in writing.)

1602 movie wheeeeeee

I haven't read all of that series but I want to. From what I've seen it looks great.

Secret Wars II Omnibus
Cool! But... $99? Aww man. *is poor*

Why do you look so angry Bob? Also, lolz at Ed McGuinnes DP. Iz fat.
Thor-Pool is love.

Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy Unveiled?
Will people kill me if I say he looks a bit like a pansy?

Everyone looked like a pansy in those days. Anyway, it's a portrait, so he's probably been extra pansyfied for it.

Will Hancock ruin Iron Man 2?
I heard on some net site that they weren't doing the Demon in A Bottle storyline for IM2 anymore because of Hancock.

I love FAQ: So you have a demon...

I really want to see DP pics from Origins. :( Why are you making us wait internetz????
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: June 17th, 2008 05:46 pm (UTC) (current file)
I tend to save 'em up and post them all at once. *g*

Yeah - you can get the Team-Up on its own for a decent price if you don't have it. As much as I ♥ C&D, I ♥ Solo DP just as much if not more.

I know I have Super Squad Deadpool already, but...I still kind of covet those action figures.

I wonder what storyline they'll do, then. It's a shame, that would be a great one for RDJr.'s acting skills.

Why are you making us wait internetz????

I KNOW. I want to see what costume they have him in...
gestalt1 From: gestalt1 Date: June 17th, 2008 09:01 pm (UTC) (current file)
You can never have enough DP figures.

I think they may have the Mandarin? War Machine will be in it, but IDK. The video game had Titanium Man in it; maybe he'll appear? *guessing*

Rar, I need pictures plz!!!!!

Man, some of those figures are amazing. I love Thorpool, I own two copies of that issue because I was afraid I was going to wreck one copy I pulled it out so much.

I think comics fans would love a 1602 movie, but I think it would just confuse the general public who go like super heroes from the movies. I'm not sure they are ready for The Watcher and alternate universes.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: June 17th, 2008 08:50 pm (UTC) (current file)
I know! That's a definite favorite issue of mine. We should compare favorites someday (like, when I'm at home and can remind myself via cover what-all's in which issues). I do know I loooove the whole Tiny Rhino storyline by Gail Simone (I think?). It kills me everytime. Also I ♥ the sad, sad storyline with Siryn/Typhoid Mary in the Joe Kelly run. It makes me so sad whenever I read it, though. Poor Wade.

I feel almost guilty for coveting the T-Ray toy, because he's such a terrible, hateful character, and I don't like him in the comic, but...that figure's just beautifully done. (And even though I don't like him, T-Ray is getting a cameo in the next chapter of my Deadpool fic, because it's kind of fun to write grumpy bastards. Heh.)

I'm not sure they are ready for The Watcher and alternate universes.

On the other hand, Gaiman has a huge following - maybe it would draw some Gaiman fans who aren't already into comics in? Well anyway, *I'd* like it. *g*
