Works for me… especially since the screenplay was written by Brian Helgeland [“
I just discovered the “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow”. Check out the trailer and I’ll bet you’ll agree – this movie looks to be a cross between the old Fleischer Superman cartoons, The Iron Giant, The Shadow, The Rocketeer and all of those old movie serials that Bill Black loves!
The movie is written and directed by Kerry Conran [the name’s new to me] and stars Jude Law as the Sky Captain, Gwyneth Paltrow as reporter Polly Perkins, Angelina Jolie as the eyepatch wearing Capt. Franky Cook, and Giovanni Ribisi as Dex.
I’m, let’s hope Angelina Jolie will excuse the phrase, keeping my eye out for more info on the film and will post it as I get it!
The creatures from “The Lord of the Rings” movies are that kind of scary.
Wepner fought Ali in 1975. Before the fight Wepner, known as the “Bayonne Bleeder” told his wife. “Go out and buy some expensive lingerie because after the fight you’ll be sleeping with the Champion of the World!” Ali won the fight. A bloodied Wepner walked back to his dressing room…
… where his wife asked, “So, do I go to Ali’s room or does he come to mine!”
I really don’t care who wins this one. If I had to guess I’d say it’ll beDarrah. After Ruppert got booted few weeks ago I said, anyone but
the trailer coming out Monday and several cool things happening before the movie is released!
That’ll probably all change in January when Mad #438 hits the stands.
Mad #438 features the work of Arthur Adams, Michael Allred, John Byrne, J. Scott Campbell, Dave Gibbons, Jim Lee, Frank Miller, and John Romita, Jr.
You may not buy it, but you’d be, uh… mad not to at least give it a look!
But back to Rick. Check outhis website. The new school design rocks. Plan to spend a while. Be sure to check out his Swingtown animations, his sketchbook [I want to see more of The Last Days of American Crime], heck order a book or two if the spirit grabs ya, and drop him a line and tell him I sent ya!
…and believe it or not Beatty pencilled, Jerry Ordway inked and I scripted a story which appeared in the comic to the left!
I was in a grocery store in Miami with my grandfather. He and my grandma had taken me with them on vacaction to Florida. It’s probably the one vacation that I can tell you specifically where I was on a given day.
I remember a man saying that the President had been shot and all of the adults looking scared. I’d never seen that before and it caused me some concern. My grandfather assured me things would be ok, but I remember us hurrying back to the hotel. I was only five years old but I followed the details as they became clear. President Kennedy was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald while visiting Dallas, Texas. Oswald acted alone and was caught after killing a police officer named Tippett. Oswald in turn was killed [in a police station of all places] by Jack Ruby. I remember adults saying that Ruby should be given a medal for killing Oswald and that he saved the country even more grief.
It wasn’t until I was older that I began to learn that maybe there was more to theKennedy Assassination than we had been led to believe. I read the Warren Commission Report. I watched and read every related item that I could get my hands on. As the years have passed I have continued to read and search out new information. I hope that someday we will definitively know exactly what happened.
But as each year passes, I find the only thing that I am truly sure of in relation to the Kennedy Assassination is where I was when I first heard of it.
