July 29, 2011 5:16 pm I am not a Marvel person. You guys talked me into checking out Ultimate Spiderman trades, but that's it. I have enjoyed the latest Superman and Batman movies, but this summer Marvel is kickin' butt all over the place. Xmen, Thor, and now Captain America have been completely engaging. I'm coming to these characters basically fresh with just a very fundamental idea of who they are. Xmen - mutants, Thor - some fallen god??, Capt. American - a superman-like character?? Truly, I had no clue. This movie is the first one that inspires me to go check out some trades. Xmen feels overwhelming, like I'll never catch up with the story, Thor just doesn't interest me, but Capt. America looks like something I could really get into. So, Marvel did their job. They made a great movie that I will see multiple times in the theater and they sold a least a couple trade paperbacks.
July 28, 2011 7:55 pm Yeah, I agree that they should've kept with Lex until the reboot. This has been a bit painful.

I consider myself a Broadway person.

This show has been in the works and postponed for years. At one point there were some big broadway stars attached, but they've bailed out. Bono has never done a Broadway show before and the last thing Julie Taymor did was a big 'ol flop. She had one hit with the Lion King.

If you bring kids to Broadway go see Wicked, Mary Poppins, the Lion King, or Elf. Shrek is closed, but I think it's touring the country....Addams Family might be good, but I haven't seen that one.

Right now they're just trying to sell advance tickets in order to have some money come in. I'm sure the producers are done shelling out the cash. I'll go see it, but it's not an automatic guaranteed hit. They still need a good story, good music, and quality performers if they want to actually make any money on Broadway.

Red Velvet Cake from 'Joan's on Third' in Los Angeles!!!

June 14, 2010 12:01 pm I spotted a copy behind the counter at my LCS. The owner let me look through it as it was the only copy in the store and he was taking it home. Beautiful!! Gorgeous!! Huge!! I'm not quite ready to own multiple copies of anything and I have all the originals, but this is tempting....very tempting...
