Catching Up

WWWWwwwooooooowwwww I did not mean to not update this for a week.

Basically, I had a busy weekend that involved traveling to Los Angeles, which meant last week was a "do all the work PLUS stuff you'd usually be doing on the weekend" crunch-time, and "re-post to personal blog stuff you've already disseminated through social-media" was the first thing to get set aside. SO! Then, here's where we've been:

I wrote about BLACK JESUS in light of the ongoing disaster in Ferguson, Missouri.

GAME OVERTHINKER. New One.

EXPENDABLES 3 was actually kinda okay... but nobody cared.

Yes, we're all going to miss ROBIN WILLIAMS.

Big Picture: TURTLE POWER

Yes, a video essay about the original TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES being better than the new, terrible one. Because I'm sure nobody else on The Internet will think to do that...

Australian TMNT Poster Features Exploding Skyscraper, Falling Bodies... and a 9/11 Release Date

OOPS!

Tweeted by the official Paramount Australia Twitter account (UPDATE: Tweet deleted, here's a screengrab)

Too bad, too - artwork wise it's among the better advertising this has had.

Oh, and regarding the (otherwise reasonable) point that this is an Australian poster not meant for U.S. audiences more likely to be sensitive about this particular juxtaposition: Ten Australian citizens died in the 9/11 attacks.

A new NINJA RAP for a new era

GUARDIANS post-credits scene won't be shown until opening night

Will THE ROCK play SHAZAM?

THE STRAIN kind of sucks

ALSO: I predicted a bunch of stuff that might come true soon, some of it this weekend at SDCC. Might as well read it now, so you'll know what I'm never gonna shut up about if I'm right.

MOVIEBOB'S OFFICIAL CONBRAVO SCHEDULE

Hey there!

I'll be making my first ever appearance on the Canadian convention circuit at ConBravo this weekend! If you're going, here's the places and times you can find me in terms of panels and events.

I'll also be out and about and will likely find at least a few hours to set up for autographs and selling copies of SMB3: Brick By Brick; but even if you just see me walking the floor by all means feel free to say hi (I might have books with me then, too.)

Here's how things look...

The Day's News 7/9/14

So. You've probably noticed that the blog has been a bit sparse of late, owing to me doing more news-item posts for The Escapist than for here.

Starting today, I'm going to try and change that by doing (when possible) daily summary-posts of news I've reported there - please, feel free to comment and chat about them. Note: there will be some "older" stories on this once, since it's the first:
