Observations Of A Sleepwalker

theimancameron asked: Of all the fellow comic creators you know, who's the best dancer?

brianmichaelbendis:

david mack.  hands down.

At my wedding, years ago, David took off like a rocket on the dance floor in the kind of way that makes the dance floor part to allow him to express himself.

my mother, not immediately recognizing him, said to me: oh, you hired a professional dancer?

I said: no that’s David

she said: what’s wrong with him

:)

 my brain is filled with David Mack memory gifs :)

This is what happens when my comedy group KOKOMO discusses Elton John. It’s ridiculous. It’s stupid. I’m sorry. We love it.

For Your Consideration: The Fan-Casting Of Doctor StrangeNow that Joaquin Phoenix has passed on the Sorcerer Supreme several big name stars are being lined up as a short list for Steven Strange. Among them are Matthew McConaughey, Ethan Hawke, Jared Leto, Oscar Issac, Jake Gyllenhaal and Ewan McGregor. Some pretty fierce names. Most of them suit the role just fine. But lets take some time to look at some alternate choices:
John Hawkes: Oscar nominated character actor has seen his fair share of blockbusters. It’s nearly time he took the helm of one. After being seen as gentle in “The Sessions” people may have some doubts. I suggest rewatching “Winters Bone” to get a good sense of what he is capable of.

Oded Fehr: Based on looks alone, this man should be a clear front runner. He’s been a staple in fantasy blockbuster films and is just dying for a genuine leading role. This could be the one for him.

Timothy Olyphant: Charisma and charm abounds,  He can play comedy easily (See “The League” and “Go”) and is a master of the dramatic (See “Justified.”) Olyphant could suit up well as the master of the mystic arts.

and my absolute favorite … David Tennant: Seriously. Why is this even a question? You want a big star, how about one of Britain’s biggest? A former and beloved Doctor Who, Doctor. The guy made one of the best drama series of last year in “Broadchurch.” (We won’t discuss “Gracepoint.”) He pulled off the look of Warlock very well in the minor hit “Fright Night” and has openly said on the Marvel Podcast that he would love a role in a Marvel movie. Listen up Feige, you want a one sheet poster that will sell your movie. David Tennant in full Strange regalia, backlit, and a tag line that reads “Did someone call a Doctor?” You’d probably also break the internet.

Just cut his hair and let the man get to work.
Just my two cents.

Got a chance to check out the DD panel at New York Comic Con today. I’m so happy with what I saw. It’s nice to know the creators are really aiming for (and this is from their own mouths) “a grittier Frank Miller & Brian Michael Bendis tone.” Charlie Cox even made a point to single out one of the best Bendis stories in the Q&A (“The Trial Of White Tiger.”) The footage is dark and very serious, more serious than other recent Marvel projects. The fight sequence was realistic, perfectly violent and quite visceral. It seemingly takes it’s cues from “Man Without Fear” by Frank Miller & John Romita Jr. The cast … Oh, the cast. The short clip they showed of D’onofrio as Wilson Fisk was chill inducing. From his own mouth in the panel, the man who would be Kingpin stated “Our Fisk, he’s a child, and he’s a monster.” The announcement of Vondie Curtis-Hall as Ben Urich was sincerely delightful, but so was his thinly veiled wink wink joke to the audience about wondering how to play the character from the comics with glasses. Lastly, there can be no better casting than Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple. So much more to say. So much more to process. I look forward to May. I look forward to devouring this series whole via Netflix. I look forward to Daredevil.

This is the most frightening movie I have seen all year. It’s also possibly the best movie I have seen all year so that works out.

Dear Radiohead Fans,What it could be:
• An “Amok” Remix EP
• An “Amok” Live Recording Album
• An “Amok” Remix Album
• A Special Edition Release Of The Music From The Polyfauna App
• A New Thom Yorke (solo) Single
• A New Thom Yorke (solo) EP 
• A New Thom Yorke (solo) Album
• The Product Of Radiohead’s Third Man Records Recordings
• A Spoken Word Record By Thom About Climate Change
What it most likely isn’t because they just went back into the studio this month, and Phil has been busy putting finishing touches on his sophomore solo album (not to mention - the early stages of promotion):
• A New Radiohead EP
• A New Radiohead Album… That being said. A fanbase can dream …
