Quote of the Day - 9/19/08

“He was a victim of what Quentin [Tarrantino] was a victim of. ‘Jackie Brown’ is a great movie, but it’s not ‘Pulp Fiction 2.’ ‘Unbreakable’ is a great movie, but it’s not ‘I see f**king dead people.’ ”

- Samuel L. Jackson on the original idea that M. Night Shyamalan's "Unbreakable" be a trilogy.

"Her Name Bubbles"

I have been having Seth Rogen overload. It seems all the characters he's been portraying are the same. As a result, I had lost some of my excitement on the upcoming Kevin Smith film "Zack and Miri Make a Porno." Could I stand more Rogen this soon? But my hope was that being written by someone other than Rogen would help. The red-band (R-rated) trailer came out this week.

I couldn't stop laughing.

My excitement has be reinvigorated!

Enjoy! (and remember, it's R-rated)

Too Funny

I came upon the American "Office" late. I know, I know, where was I? In a cave? No, I was rewatching the BBC version and the BBC show "Extras." If you haven't seen "Extras" do it now.

Anyway, NBC made this commercial. I just came across it again and couldn't stop laughing.

I think I'll watch it again...

Quote of the Day - 9/5/08

"It's one of the most disgusting developments in the last few years. The whole notion of a PG-13 horror movie to me is a contradiction in terms. It's like having a XXX Disney picture. It doesn't work."

- Horror Author Clive Barker

Most People Won't Care...

that I saw Robert Kirkman tonight at the Lexington, KY Barnes and Noble.

I never get starstruck, and hadn't the nerve to walk up to him and talk to him. Oh, wait, you don't know who he is, do you? Kirkman is a comics writer who lives in Lexington, KY. He has written for the likes of Marvel (Marvel Zombies) and Image (Walking Dead and Invincible).

So, anyway, I didn't want to bother him. I mean he was there to shop. It's his time, and I respect that. However, when I told my nephew, who was with me, that I thought that was him, he didn't have the same problem.

I told him (he's a Walking Dead and Marvel Zombies fan) that I thought that was Kirkman. So he went up to him, asked if it was indeed him and then talked to him for a few minutes.

What came of the conversation? My nephew said he thought he was shy. I'm sure, as a comics writer, he doesn't get recognized much, especially in Lexington. My nephew also said he was nice and said that he wouldn't be at the Mid-Ohio Con in early October. That's a bummer.

Anyway, it was cool that my nephew got to meet one of the top comics writers in the business today.
