NIGHTCRAWLER's best friend....

It's interesting to see how Wolverine has changed, become more complex than just a killing machine, since his inception. The character was originally a bit shallow, probably because comics were more kid-oriented then (or at least, believed to be so). You had archetypes; the shiny leader, the practic...

X3 Director and Production

:doh! Brilliant. They figure it's gonna bomb big time, and the fans are going to stay away, so in order to bring in the T+A bucks to take their place, they bring in Stacy X. Great going, guys.... I'm just *praying* this is another publicity stunt. But with all the garbage that has been rolling down ...

Bomb threat!

At San Jose State University (SJSU), it was almost expected that some $*%&@ing MORON would call in a "bomb threat" during finals time. Someone was always trying to disrupt finals. I was never sure what they thought they would accomplish: whether they thought they could some how get finals "cancelled...

Update on "Crucified nun" case....

I went looking for more information on this, as a week or so had passed without much notice. Most of the sites I saw were Romanian, so they weren't much help to me. In fact, Father Leo recieved an (unsolicited) email in Romanian about this act, though he hasn't gotten anything from the OCA heirarchy...

Wait, Davis is back again? I thought I heard something about his quitting. Is this just the last stuff he did before leaving, or have I (once again) misheard/misinterpreted things?

I just thought of something, here.... [spoiler]It couldn't be Margali coming after him. Why would she insist that Kurt "pay for the sins" of her son, Stephan? I mean, she was pissed off at Kurt for killing Stephan. The fact Stephan was killing something else first didn't bother her in the least. Why...

Margali's character seems to constantly be in flux, depending on who is involved in writing her. I, too, thought things had been settled after Annual #4... then I took a break from comics and found Margali had been VERY naughty in Excalibur. Summoning up demons in London? For SHAME, woman! :smirk I ...

I was wondering what the other end of the spectrum had to say about this. Thanks, fourpaws, for posting that. I appreciate it. :) My problem, I suppose, is that PETA is such an extreme group, with extreme leaning, extreme "black and white" thoughts about animal rights, and extreme ways about acting ...

I've always seen Mojo as kind of a "comedy relief" villain. He's incredibly uber-powerful, disobeys the laws of physics at his whim, but lives with such a psychotically rigid mindset that he gives himself truly crippling limitations. I'm reminded of the famous "hacksaw and handcuffs" scene of Who Fr...

I heard they had an absurdly high "euthanasia" rate, but not why. I just figured no one wanted to support PETA's activities in the place the center was active, and it was a case of "the road to hell and best intentions". To find out they INTENTIONALLY euthanized the animals WITHOUT giving them a cha...

Yeah, the T-shirts are illegal... but that just makes them that much more prized among the European Neo-Nazis. Racist gunk you could buy for $10 over here runs at least 30EU over there, due to its illicit nature. It's a good thing Kurt doesn't know what that little twisted cross means yet.... :shift...
