So, What is Happening?write for them for free, and then they lay-off a bunch of their paid employees as if to double-down on this, "Hey, write stuff for us and we won't pay you" plan they have. Now, I've done some writing for entities that paid me and entities that did not, but if I've done it for a place that lacked payment it was for a solid reason. Namely, they were too broke to pay for a guest article just as I would be too broke to pay any guest writer. If you're Entertainment Weekly however, I would imagine you should have enough scratch to pay people.
Marvel has tentatively planned out their movies into 2028. That is some long-range thinking. Meanwhile, DC announced this week that they might get a "Justice League" movie out sometime in the future, adding, "Maybe, who knows? We really have no clue what we're doing here."
|You mean it "Begins Here...After Quite The Delay!"|
Our nation freaks out when someone foreign who identifies as Muslim is arrested for a terrorist plot, no matter how outlandish it is. Yet, as is pointed out here, when a native-to-America and Christian extremist with a quite implementable plan is caught, it gets little-to-no attention. Is this down to some kind of xenophobia, fear of other religions, or what?
|This show was/still is awesome.|
The Fort Hood shooting incident is tragic and shows how Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (which the shooter was being treated for) is nothing to ignore or be too proud to discuss. Mental illness is still so stigmatized and can result in those needing help not always getting it. The odd thing is that the shooter had never seen combat, so was it truly PTSD or some other mental illness? That seems to be the question some in the media are asking.
|To answer this question, no. No, I do not. Ever.|
|Even today the earlier Sonic games holdup well.|
The upcoming live-action "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie sounds more and more like it might be an unholy mess.

David Letterman announced yesterday he is going to be retiring from his late-night show in 2015. With Leno gone too (for real this time) this kind of brings an end to an era of the late-night wars. I would say a new war is brewing though with all the current shows. Between Fallon, Kimmel, Arsenio (yes, he's back), Conan, and Colbert all over-lapping to some degree that is a lot of folk, and that's without even talking about the even-later-in-the-night guys. Then I hear rumors that Kevin Smith may be getting a late-night show on AMC and I think that something has gotta give.
discussed my concerns with the CGC before and articles such as this don't inspire more confidence.
That's What is Happening.
That's a variety of stuff I found interesting enough to share with you, my dear readers. I'm off now to Wizard World Saint Louis and plan to see the new Captain America movie tonight, so expect things to be written about both sooner than later!
