Interesting news about Comixology, etc. I still can't get into Dr. Who...but I bought that issue of Entertainment celebrating the anniversary on the cover. Also not much to say about the animated stuff as I haven't seen any of it. As for Scott Snyder on both Batman (Year One) and Superman at the same time. Yeah, I'd like to see what he can do with Superman. It definitely could be more interesting...
Are You My Mother?: I liked Murd's review. (I used to study psychology) However, I probably won't get the book. I didn't buy Blankets either, so it's okay. Right, Murd? Kickstarter: Hm, namedropper indeed! But I liked Steve's enthusiasm! Thanksgiving!: I'm thankful that I was able to have turkey dinner here in Japan AND that I saw an actual Thanksgiving Day NFL football game, even if it was the horrible beating that the Patriots gave the Jets. Jamie's Movie Reviews: Hm, don't know if I'll get to see Wreck It Ralph here, but it sounds good! Skyfall: It'll come out here on Dec. 1st so I'll see it next week sometime. I agree, Craig is a great James Bond. I rank him up there with Connery. Everyone in-between is just so-so. Oh, and I haven't missed a Bond movie since Diamonds Are Forever (wow, Jill St. John!), but then ... I'm old. Heritage Auctions: Pants watching the auctions carefully using the option of not-being-able-to-bid reminded me of the episode of Big Bang Theory when Leonard just wanted to be a part of the Time Machine auction and ended up buying it for $800 and it was a full-size prop. Talon: I thought it was interesting, but I hope it gets better. The artwork reminded me of Joe Kubert.
I think I'm approximately a decade older than Jamie. I saw most of the Monkees shows when they originally aired. I never really thought of them as a "real" band. I just thought of them as actors or comedians. I guess that's just me: I was more into Marvin Gaye and the Motown sound at the time and only listened to The Beatles sporadically (things like Yesterday, Sgt. Pepper). However, I did like some of The Monkees music enough that I remembered some of it when Pants played the songs. A few months back (long before this episode) I bought a Monkees greatest hits CD and didn't really get into it at all. Maybe I'll give it another listen. Anyway, I listened to this originally through the APP and I thought it strange that you didn't mention the car!! What was it? The Monkee Mobile? Well, whatever the name of it was, I thought it was a cool-looking car, almost as good as the Batmobile!
Pants dresses like Robert Goulet now? Hahaha... European jag-offs and scarves? Hahaha.... Bryan in Michael Jackson deprivation chamber and Peter and Hotwings? Hahaha... USC: I can relate to Sal's experience at USC. Technically, I lived all 4 years on campus, but the first year I lived on fraternity row in a dormitory. Wow, what a warzone that was at times! There was kind of a Watts community vs. the university vibe. I got stopped many-a-time to have my univesrity ID checked cuz security thought I was a gangbanger trying to sneak onto the campus or something. But that was the '70's. "Buster Hymen" Hahaha! Sal At Conventions: Yeah, next time I have to remember to not ask Sal about phone books. Heh-heh... Tiz and smoking! Haha! Great! Good Sal-insight into digital vs. print. ...The Sal train goes on! Yay!
Okay, well...I will just say that with the Disney purchase at least things will get MOVING! That's what I like about the whole thing. I've liked the Katana character since her first appearance, but I don't really see how she and Vibe can carry their own books. However I will check them all out. I was glad to hear the excitement from Pants and Shane about both Walking Dead and Arrow. I won't see them for a few years probably, but I like that some folks like the shows.
