Springfield vs. Shelbyville

Although I make a point to see most comic book movies, it had been a long time since I had read any. Usually I just read Metamorphostuff to keep abreast on the latest developments in the comic world. Yet I must admit Marvel has me hooked on their World War Hulk series. It is the latest epic, or gimmick depending on your view, to shake up the Marvel Universe. Still, I'm keeping hope alive for a World War Archie series. After 50 years, Archie still has problems deciding between Betty and Veronica. Make up your mind man!

Now let the countdown to "The Simpsons Movie" begin...

Back to the Start

Ever have one of those days that just sucked the life out of you? On the bright side the weekend is here, and there is 26 hours of non-stop music on television courtesy of the Live Earth concert. Plus, I finally got around to mailing my Summer Burn CD so I can officially cross it off my "to do" list.

Random Song 1: Kardinal Offishall - Whatchalike (ft. Busta Rhymes) (buy)
Random Song 2: The White Stripes - Conquest (buy)

Bonus Videos: Kanye West - Stronger (ft. Daft Punk) (buy)/ Daft Punk - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (buy). At first I was a little under-whelmed with Kanye's "Strong" video; but it is starting to grow own me. This is most likely due to the subtle nods to the anime classic " Akira". Regardless I'm glad Kanye's track, and the insanely creative "Daft Hands" video (see below), are causing people to revisit Daft Punk's Discovery album. An underrated gem if you ask me.
