It's time for what has become my weekly update to this blog as I can't seem to get around to posting more often than that.

I heard a radio commercial for Tucker Carlson's new show "The Situation". The commercial claims the show to inform, entertain, and for some reason, improve your dating life. I can see the last two, but inform, Tucker, honestly?

New editions to the comics library:
-Lucifer Vol 8: One interesting way to tell the story of Ragnorok
-Thor: Disassembled: Another Ragnorok story. Also good.
-PvP: The Dork Ages: I can't believe I've waited this long to buy this, but a great independent comic strip.
-She-Hulk Vol 2: Worth the price of admission for the Howard the Duck cameo.
-Ultra: Seven Days: Post-modern comics meets sex in the city. Neat little book, beautifully designed. Looking forward to the Luna bros. next outing.

I saw Fantastic Four yesterday, and I gotta say I enjoyed the movie a lot. I went in with low expectations and determination to enjoy the film, and came out at the very least whelmed (I know you can be overwhelmed, and that you can be underwhelmed, but can you just be whelmed. I think you can in Europe. Major geek points for the first to id that quote) The movie was intimate and cut to the core of the FF: here's a semi-dysfunctional family trying to get by in world complicated by superpowers and celebrity.

Via Wonkette via the NY Post: Ex Con and general whackjob G. Gordon Liddy: "If a man wants to cheat [on his wife], I would give him the same advice I would give a man who was tempted to try heroin. Don't do it. It is addictive."

-A new Jibidy is in the works, it's been written, will be shot and hopefully up on A-M.co sometime this week. And get this, it'll close out the current "Ninja Fight" arc and actually get Jibidy and Co. back on the hunt for Scurvy Steve's birth parents. I'm also working on the the next chapter of Dayspring, though honestly, it is still a couple weeks out.

More to maybe come later...

AFI recently honored the 100 greatest movie quotes. You can see it here. I'd like to honor some that didn't make the list:

"I swear to God I'll pistol whip the next person who says shenanigans!" - Supertroopers

"We are the knights who saw Ni!" - Monty Python and the Holy Grail

"My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." The Princess Bride

"Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul." Billy Madison

More to come!
