Big business this morning. That's me and Jermaine with Greensboro Mayor Robbie Perkins this morning. Can't say much just yet. Suffice to say, big things are in the works!
Stephen's So-Called Emo Life!
- In Search of Steve Ditko - a great documentary produced by Jonathan Ross (Turf) and BBC4 that I am way late to the party on. Terrific look at a career and man shrouded in myself featuring guys like Mark Millar and Alan Moore. So good that I bought the Amazing Spider-man Omnibus after viewing.
- John Carter of Mars - after seeing this cover on Tumblr, I was struck by an overwhelming urge to pick up the original novels. I did a little research online and found a version in the iTunes Book Store that was only .99 cents for the first five volumes! Then there's little investment when it comes to double-dipping on a physical copy later. I'm about halfway through A Princess of Mars and plan to polish it off tonight before going to see the movie tomorrow. Can't believe it's 100 years old.
- Neverending Story - tonight at 7:30 and 10:00 at the Carolina Theater! Only $6! Support the Mixed Tape Film Series, our partners for the Mighty Marvel Mondays in April and the Super Hero Film Festival this summer!
