I wasn’t a fan of Megan Fox … but I’m seriously considering changing my mind. It isn’t due to peer pressure. It didn’t have anything to do with the attractive pictures that were taken of her while she was partially clothed (not that there is anything wrong with that). It is due to the following segment on JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!

Before we get into the meat of today’s post, I’ve got a couple of things that I want to share.
First, am I the only one whose teeth begin to itch when imagining a Green Hornet movie featuring Seth Rogen as both screenwriter and lead actor? I’m not going off all “scorched earth/Scarlett Johansson” here. When I imagine the screenplay Rogen and his buddies might write, my teeth itch. When I picture Rogen in the mask and hat, standing next to Kato, my teeth itch.
I’m holding my breath a little bit on this one. The action scenes in Pineapple Express showed a great deal of promise, but can they fit into a Green Hornet context? Are there any other fanatics feeling the same way? Continue reading

Not the kind of mistake that would make anyone mad, just the kind of mistake that makes me look stupid. In my post a few days ago, regarding Peter David, I said something about the fact that he and I had never worked together. This was not the truth, as both Mark and Kara pointed out in the comments section. Continue reading
I don’t think that I’ve ever worked with comic writer Peter David. We know each other. We exchange greetings at conventions. Regrettably, I’ve never had a chance to work with Peter David, which is one of the reasons that make this next story so extraordinary.
It had to have been San Diego during Comic Con 1996 when I was having breakfast at a hotel near the convention. It was the first time that I brought my daughter Maggie to the show. She was 10 years old at the time. While Maggie has grown into a comics and “genre” fiction enthusiast and loves to go to San Diego Con, she didn’t really enjoy her first one that much. I’d always bragged how much fun I had at the show. This particular year, my wife and daughter decided to come with me … and frankly it was a little overwhelming. Continue reading
