Shaved, sorta.

Here is the part of my beard that is not gray.

I thought it had a Tony Stark/Frank Zappa look to it but thanks to Dave Wasklewicz for setting me straight. I do look like Kraven the Hunter.

Welcome Blogspot!

It's come to my attention that after five years, I no longer own My account was linked to an old address and I never got a renewal notice. I tried to buy it but it was already gone. No one is doing anything with it.

But that doesn't mean this blog is dead. I still update almost every day. It feeds straight into my Facebook where over 500 more people can see it. And once Bill tells me how it will link into my Twitter feed over a whopping 42 people could see it.

So if you're typing for this blog, you'll need to go to The URL isn't important. The content is.

Disney Making 'Iron Man 3'

The box office success of the first "Iron Man" is precisely what drew Disney to Marvel. So it's only natural that they would get that license away from Paramount. Even if they have to pay $115 million to get it.

So while Paramount is still set to release "Thor" and "Captain America" Disney gets Joss Whedon's "Avengers" and the next "Iron Man" (with or without Favreau who wasn't happy with the finished Iron Man 2). Marvel (and therefore Disney) already got "Hulk" from Universal and "Fantastic Four" from Fox. How long before they try to get "X-Men" and "Spider-Man" back?

Read the press release here.

Sesame Street "Mad Men"

Because Steve Klausner asked for it. This played last season and another reason I wanted to write for "Sesame Street" until the had that last round of layoffs.

Conan and Andy

Conan O'Brien has been making quick web videos to prepare for the new TBS show. This has been the best so far.

Grover for Old Spice

Some people hate it when "Sesame Street" is topical. Me, I live for it. Remind me to post their parody of "Mad Men".

Bad Superman Movies You Didn't Have to See

To date, there have been seven 'Superman" movies, including "Supergirl" and the George Reeves "Superman Vs. the Mole man". Of these seven, one is very good, one is okay, and five are bad. As they prep another reboot only four years after "Superman returns", Rotten Tomatoes shows us the Superman movies that died in development hell.

None of these sound any good.

Check it out.

Eric Johnson Gear

Yay! More gear videos! For me and maybe someone else. I listened to Ah Via Musicom over and over and over and then nothing else. Still have massive respect for Eric Johnson and anyone else that makes a strat their #1. Although it sounds like a lot of his pedals are centered on making his strat not sound like a strat.

Max Headroom

Watching "Max Headroom" on dvd. The character was a phenomenon yet the series was a minor quirky project that only lasted 14 episodes. It's as strange as it was in 1987. The fun of it now is seeing how much it got right vs. how much it got wrong. I'm sorry, tube tvs in the future?

Researching the character I came across what is now known as the Max Headroom Incident. Seems some kid broke into the feed of Chicago television in 1987 as the character. Pretty clever but once he gets on the air, he has no material and resorts to loud and annoying. Ah, Chicago.
