May 4th was Free Comic Book Day. Did you get yours? I hope, at least, that the Fourth was with you. Oh, what perfect timing for a free comic. It’s kind of big deal in our household. My hubby is wild about comics. So off we went.
You know you are in the right place when the Dark Side is there to welcome you.
And it’s quite festive inside.
Perhaps you would like some of these offerings…
These were hubby’s favorites. We don’t need any glittery Hollywood endings. No, sir. I apologize for the glare.
Personally, I enjoyed The Remainz. This would be “The Rocking Dead.” Don’t leave home without your head, because you will miss it and will have a hard time relocating it. Trust me on this.
I know you’re excited now.
In the spirit of the day, I saw Iron Man 3 with my kids. I won’t review it here, because I would probably spoil it for you. I will just say that I loved it and, of course, I loved Robert Downey Jr., and Guy Pearce was a lovely villain. I will also tell you that there was one part when I just gasped because I could barely contain myself, and had you been there with me, you would have thought I was ridiculous and would have been greatly embarrassed to be seen with me.
There is a cookie at the end, and if you decide to stay for it (it’s good), you will see the extraordinarily long list of people who worked on Digital Effects. It’s one of the longest I’ve ever seen. You’ll also learn that parts of the movie were shot in North Carolina, and there’s a company called “Eargasm.” I’m not entirely sure what a Depth Editor does either.
My movie bubble burst when I went to the restroom and waited desperately for the paper towel to auto-dispense. Surely, it should just shoot out and grab my arm. Tony Stark, he’s so hot, so smart, sexy….Alas, Tony Stark is merely a fantasy. Dammit.
Well, here’s a smart and sexy song for you, a little chill music to round out your weekend. This song just makes me want to choreograph a dance. I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!
