Sunday, September 30, 2012 interview with John Wesley Shipp

I've been watching the old Flash TV series from way back in '90.  I only remember watching the 2 tapes they had at my local video store.  They were the 90 minute pilot and the episode (episodes?) with Mark Hamill as the Trickster.  That was it, I was not aware of this show when it was on TV.  But it's pretty awesome and a big part of the is John Wesley Shipp as Barry Allen/The Flash.  Maybe at some point I'll put up a full review.  I was thinking of trying to track this guy down and trying to get an interview to talk about his awesome turn as The Flash.  I instead found this great interview at bigfanboy.  Mark Walters, the interviewer, does a great job and pretty much makes any subsequent interview pointless.  The whole interview is here ,  I'm including a portion of it here.  This sample covers how John Wesley Shipp got involved with the project, his thoughts on the character, the costume and criticism of the show.  I suggest reading the whole thing though.  Check it out after the jump.

Yet another delay in my return...

  With my return of health my real life, grown up adult job has suddenly demanded an extra 10 hours a week of my time on top of the 40 they already get.  Since this whole thing is "fun" for me this is the first thing that has to go.  All this means, for the few people who come here, is that this place will go on indefinite hiatus.  I may or may not still post Catwoman week but I don't know.  My hope is to come back in the new year, assuming the world doesn't suddenly end in December.  But I'll post things here and there, easy stuff, random stuff, whatever I have time for if I have time for it.  Then by the time the new year rolls around I might actually get to the revamp of the site.  I like doing stuff with this blog, keeping my own little corner of the internet, but, well, work pays me and that's way more important.

  Well, that's it.  I'll be back occasionally and hopefully in the new year.

Sad but true...

Kratos looks like Bobby Hill.  Also I just want to be clear I don't support this attitude, I just recognize it's existence.


Alright, stop, it's lunchtime.


You wouldn't like Bluto when he's angry.

Dredd 3D (2012) Theatrical Release

Rating: 4 out of 5 people who are the law and who give the sentence of death

Review:  You know it's been a good couple of years for comic movies.  The creators take the source material seriously, they get good actors, write decent stories and film good movies.  That wasn't always the case, you got a Spider-Man 3 or a Batman and Robin WAY more than you got a Dark Knight or a X-Men 2.  This year alone has been pretty great for people who love their comics in live action on the big screen.

Curse you Fox, curse you and your morals

Of course you're forgetting that the sonar device only worked with cell phones and when Bane 'liberated' Gotham he most likely also eliminated cellular service.  So it wouldn't have mattered anyway.

Blog update

  So, I'll be be back in October.  With demands at work along with some personal health issues, which are getting better, I decided to take September off as well.  I'm however at least generating some new content for my return.  Monday October 8th will be the first day of regular updates.  Between then and now if something comes out in theaters I'll go see it and do a non-spoiler review (I think Judge Dredd comes out between now and then, maybe something else too).  I might throw up something easy and lazy between now and then as well but October 8th and we come back with Catwoman/Feminism In Comics week.  I may drop the feminism part though, however I don't know if you can really talk about Catwoman, the Halle Berry Catwoman movie in particular, with out saying something on the subject.  We'll see how it goes.  But that week will introduce a new monthly feature and possibly a new author as well.

  I know, looking at my hits, that no one will probably read this or care but on the off chance someone does care here's the explanation.  2 months is a long time to be gone with no explanation.
