    Stuff You Need to Know: Sam Jackson is Finally (Again) Nick Fury

    Sam Jackson is Nick Fury
  • Marvel has finally gotten their head out of their ass and signed Samuel L. Jackson to play Nick Fury in their barrage of upcoming movies. Sadly, Marvel Films has started to act like Marvel Comics: let’s setup this guy to be Ultimate Nick Fury, pattern the character after him, make geeks jump for joy when we cast him, and then lowball him until his involvement is in jeopardy. And this guy’s a comic geek–when you’re offering a comic geek too little money to be a pivotal comic movie character? That’s just fucking stupid. Glad they sought therapy. Source.
  • That’s right, it’s that time again. For our American readers, the government is about to set fire to a stack of your hard-earned money. Not literally, but they might as well be. Rather than belabor the point I’ll just mention that Amazon has tax software available to download to help you through this trying time of the year. And I’ll say this and get off the soapbox: I think, by law, everyone in the federal government should be required to do their taxes themselves–without aid of software or an accountant. If they can’t do it, then maybe they should think about tax law reform. I’m just saying.
  • All of that electronic crap you have cluttering up your domicile? Best Buy will take it and recycle it for $10 a piece. And for every piece, you get a $10 gift card in return. There are limitations beyond the two items a day maximum–here’s the site with more info. Source.

    A Comic Book Lover’s Attire

    Comic book panel dress

    This fabric was used by Kristen at Woolgathering to make a dress and it’s actually the perfect dress for Comic-Con, which is where she wore it. So congrats. Here’s my favorite bit:

    Compliments at Comic Con – 22 (yah, I totally counted), including one large black man who pointed at me as he walked by unsmiling and said, “I want a dress like that!”

    I must also commend Kristen for this, and maybe this is a completely male comic book reader reaction, but she was smart not to position panels with “ARGGH” over certain parts of her anatomy. Because that’s the sort of commentary that no one wants. Instead “I’ll get you yet!” appears there. Which is a more positive sentiment, to be sure.

    Yeah, it’s sad that I noticed that. But if you’re just figuring out I’m sad then you haven’t been paying attention. Found via Craftzine.

    TR2N Teaser Trailer: Just When You Thought Disney Couldn’t Do Anything Smart…

    TRON arcade game

    Okay, so it’s been making the rounds: TRON 2.0 a.k.a. TR2N is happening. Or it damn well better be, otherwise the fanboys are going to have Disney‘s ass.

    The full news on what was shown and how it was handled was first broken, to my awareness, by Ain’t It Cool News. You can check out their stuff here.

    The first word about a sequel to the original Tron came in the 80s. Back when I first generated a Tron 2.0 page over at Corona’s Coming Attractions in 1999, somebody sent in a scan from Electronic Games from 1982 where Disney apparently talked about two sequels, not just one. That image is no longer extant online from what I can tell. Corona broke the news that same year that Steven Lisberger had signed a deal to scribe the sequel but no word on directing. I know that since 1999 there’s been a kind of weak, wheezing buzz about the project, and copies of a Lisberger script have been running around.

    But I didn’t ask you all here to talk about what has happened in the past. Instead, let’s do something we seldom do without mentioning the word “Pixar“: we’re going to praise Disney. Why? Because this “teaser” is the smartest way they could launch a Tron sequel.

    How to Avoid a Skrull Mask at New York Comic-Con

    I would love for somebody to come up to me at New York Comic-Con and offer me a Marvel Skrull mask so I could be part of the “Secret Implosion.”

    I see the exchange going like this:

    ME: “No, thanks. I’m not a Skrull.”

    MARVEL STOOGE: “Ah, but who can you trust? ARE YOU SURE?”

    ME: “Yes, I’m sure. Reed Richards checked me out and told me so. And in my reality he’s not a fucking idiot and would know.”

    Feel free to use that or some variation if you need to.

    The Curmudgeon

    These days there’s more to Brighton than the Domesday Book and scenic oceanic views. This resort town, nestled in the south of England has become in the vernacular of those in the know, an “It Spot” and “Scene.” But despite the heaps of praise there is no denying that there is a buzz of musical and autistic creativity happening there.

    Electrelane

    Musically Brighton was put on the map over a decade ago by Fatboy Slim and The Levellers. Now a whole new breed of talented and diverse musicians are cutting a swathe across the city and making people take notice.

    One would be hard pressed to call Electrelane “veterans,” but that is the case for the all girl kraut rock jamsters who have finished a short US tour including dates with Arcade Fire. They will be Stateside again in the fall to support their most prolific release to date, No Shouts, No Calls.

    The Kooks followed their auspicious debut, Inside In/Inside Out with massive hype in the UK and a sold out string of US dates. For almost a year the band was everywhere in the UK press who touted them as the next Oasis. Although the always fickle ears of the UK music press will undoubtedly turn on them eventually they clearly have a future ahead of them. The Kooks are a band on the make who will lay waste to anyone who gets in their way.
