Ok I got a new laptop so I can start blogging again! I still haven’t set up photoshop but I can finally continue to shoot develop and scan film again!
Oh and what a perfect day to start blogging again because this week has been horrible. Between a hell at school and a bad ATM problem, a problem that has left me short on money for the next 5 to 10 days, I just cannot find another reasonable way to vent and relax than spending my time shooting photos again.
Oh, on the bright side of this crappy week, look at what I found in the mail today.
I sent a photo submission to Jonessoda.com to see what would happen last July and I guess I got picked.
Yeah, I know it’s not a big deal. I mean I think they choose about fifty submissions a month or something right? But my luck in photo hasn’t been so awesome recently, so it was nice to have a win for once. Even a small one like this.
On the comics side I started reading current Ultimate Spider-man (#1-14 after Ultimatum) now that I’ve finally caught up with all the trades (11 hardcovers, it was a lot). And. It. Is. Good. Oh so good. It’s a nice happy colorful adventure of spider-man on one side, and the tragic stories of horror and teen angst that was so great in the original Ult. Spider-man series on the other side. The way that Bendis just constantly beats down on a poor teen Peter Parker makes you really sympathize with him and cheer him on when the fun and happy parts of the book occur. This balance between Peter’s fun and light stories with the Human Torch, Iceman, MJ, and Gwen and Spider-man’s life of just crappy and worst things happening to him is perfect. And the bright, colorful art by Lafuente is jut amazing also. An improvement in my opinion over the last two.
This is a great extended trailer released by Capcom… I’m guessing during e3 or before.
Anyways, it looks great!
Also new e3 trailer of Spider-man Shattered Dimensions reveals the 3rd Spider-man and dimension. Also… Loooks AMAZING.
The last Spider-man will be revealed during the San Diego Comicon, but judging from the small teaser at the end of this video we can pretty much guess who it is.
Ok thats all I’ve got, going to go scan some film.
Happy Fathers day Everyone!
Which was yesterday!
Free comic book day was pretty cool, it was nice to see so many adults and kids at my local comic book store. I went with my little brothers and my younger cousin. They all love comic book characters and super heroes and all that but they don’t actually read them… They just flip though my issues and look at the pictures -_- . So I thought this would be a good opportunity to get them into the hobby.
That’s not me btw thats my alliterate cousin, Johnny
Aside from some cool comics I also got a sweet Iron Man 2 poster with the suit case armor.
If you missed FC, there’s always next year. Free Comic Book Day is the first Saturday of May and you can find more info about it at freecomicbookday.com.
They even have a little video by Heroes actor Milo Ventimiglia promoting FCBD.
That’s all I gots to say, gotta go back to readin my comics,
A few days ago, the newest Marvel vs Capcom game was announced! Finally!
The teaser is here and it is pretty awesome!
It features the Capcom characters, Ryu, Morrigan, and Chris from RE5.
And the Marvel characters Wolverine, Iron Man, and the Hulk.
The gaming news site Kotaku suggests that the characters
“Captain America, Super Skrull, Chun-Li, Deadpool, Felicia, Dante, Frank West, Mephisto, Trish and Doctor Doom…”
may also be playable characters guessing from the silhouettes in promotional art.
Ok, so being all hyped up about this game I go and buy the downloadable version of Marvel vs Capcom 2 on my Playstation 3.
After about 3 minutes I realize that I really suck at MvC2… In fact, I don’t like this game…. at all.
It’s not that the game is any bad, but I just forgot that I really am not good at 2D fighting games…
So I guess I’m not getting this game when it comes out next Spring.
It’s ok thought because I can still wait for Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions to come out in September this year.
Ok then, latr guys.
Wow, the new Tron trailer came out the same time as the Iron Man 2 trailer did! And this trailer is sweeeeet. Even CG young Jeff Bridges is awesome. I don’t know much about the new main character or the actor, Garrett Hedlund, but the movie just looks amazing. And Olivia Wilde makes one hot computer program :). Just hope the story is as good as the CG.
Here’s the trailer:
And some images:
What do you guys think? Will it live up to the first Tron?
Here’s the trailer for the original movie to compare:
Man-o-man I am so excited about the new Iron Man movie, and this trailer can’t get me any more pumped!
Iron Man 2 comes out on May 7!
Casting-wise, I’m only concerned about Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow. I mean not that I have anything against her, to me she’s still fit as hell. And she looks great as Black Widow, but I’ve seen her other movies and saw what roles worked and didn’t seem to work for her and I just don’t know if this will. Of course we don’t even know if she’ll have an accent or not! I guess time will tell.
What do you think?
