An armed officer was on duty at the Florida school where a shooter killed 17 people but never went inside to engage the gunman, authorities have revealed. This comes as Donald Trump now denies ever saying give teachers guns, that will stop mass shootings from happening in the first place and he tweeted “A ‘gun free’ school is a magnet for bad people,” Mr Trump said Thursday morning.

So last night I saw Electric Six along with a pretty good 3-piece Japanese punk band called Mutant Monster. Good fun, though a higher than usual count of obnoxious dickbags in the crowd. I've got the place to myself for the weekend so it's going to involve movies, beer, and some out of hours work. Also probably some videoediting, if I have the time and motivation.

What's your weekend looking like, RCT?

Saturday I'll be taking kids to a few places. I plan to watch more Manhunter. Got a bit of work reading to do as well.

Until David Gabriel gets removed from Marvel changing the EIC isn't going to fix this nonsense.

I stopped giving a shit about Marvel & DC numbering/re-numbering "system" a long time ago. These motherfuckers have no sense of history and no respect for their own legacies.

Lol. Didn'T we just talk about Marvel and their bad marketing.
I honestly think a lot of it is due to them thinking their readers are nothing but a bunch of dumb fucks.

"Well, we said we would honour our legacies and stop stupid renumberings, but that was half a year ago, it's not like those morons would remember.
They'll just be hyped about new #1 issues."

Say about DC what you want, but even during the worst of the New 52 I never got as condescending a vibe from them as I do from Marvel.
Not even Didio or Harras.

And with things like sticking to 2,99 or good trade prices or with Rebirth, DC actually shows they are willing to do something that sticks and not just pretend to.

There's a lot to criticize about them, but a lot more to criticize about Marvel in my book.
Which is of course the reason I still buy monthly DC books and no Marvel. :smt005 ;)

I watched an Amazon exclusive film by a bunch of German comedians today. They had vast success here with films that were basically parodies of well-known German film series AND Star Trek.

They made whole film called "Traumschiff Surprise" (roughly Cruise-Ship Surprise) that was a parody/ homage to TOS and had several million cinema visitors here.
This new film also had a segment about Trek and they even made fun about Abrams beloved lens flare effect.

Yep pretty much agree. For all the stupid stuff DC do, they are at least trying to keep the price of comics down and they aren't renumbering their whole line every year and they aren't doing two crossovers a year. Marvel (especially David Gabriel) just treat their fans like dirt.
