there is the album with Booker T and the MGs and then he started basically live blogging on album so you end up with weird concept albums like Life with War and The one about the cadillac... man is nuts! And Greendale would be right up your indie loving heart... makes not one damn bit of sense, it is like a musical directed by David Lynch.


If I want to listen to a David Lynch movie, I have plenty of Angelo Badalamenti for that.

But imagine Kyle MacLachlan running around singing! (And sounding strangely like Neil Young!)

:lol:

The only thing better would be a British venereal disease where warts shaped like tiny animals break out all over your junk and start talking and singing.

Uh oh, someone's contracted it already.

I could do that... or I could put on the Wild at Heart soundtrack and listen to Nic Cage sing Elvis songs.

Neil Young singing nonstop isn't really a selling point, IMO.

Supergirl #50

I dunno what I expected from Supergirl #50, but the main story here is clunky with a "magical machine" ending capping off a rather generic possession storyline involving various people whose initials are "LL", including some confusing bits about Superwoman and more magic.

Jamal Igle draws all this just fine but without doing anything to make the book memorable, and I found the colors rather ugly. And why is Superwoman's heat vision so pink? At least it wasn't as dark or drab as a lot of the book.

Cliff Chiang and Dave McCaig's artwork for the back-up story underscores how unexciting the main story looked by making a rather bland re-telling of Supergirl's history by actress Helen Slater and Jake Black (it took two people to write those 6 pages, really?) stand out.

(Loved the First Wave preview!)

A disappointed 5

Don't think I'm not ranting about that in my review just because it's not a Marvel book. :evil:

Yeah, why the hell was this $5??? I didn't count the pages, I was just glad to be done with it by the end.

My shop only had one copy when they put out the new books. The owner said he's ordering fewer or none of the expensive books because he can't sell 'em.

What the fuck?????
I couldn't believe how bad this issue was. Gates has in my opinion a good grasp on the character. To see his drop the ball this bad was astounding. Igle's art was pretty meh as well and he usually knocks it out of the park. As for the Helen Slater bullshit, why? Yes the art was nice but why?

2.0/10

So that catches me up to last week with no missed reviews since I joined up, right SOD?

Pet Avengers, tomorrow hopefully - Hey, I may be putting it off, but I am doing good, right?

I think I read a different issue then some of you with these reviews.

But I've been a regular reader since sterling jumped on. :?
