Trying to get back into Warhammer 40k after a few years.
In case anybody else is too, I'll try and post links to a few of the blogs I'm reading from time to time.

The Trailer For MAN OF STEEL Has Arrived

Henry Cavill plays Superman in director Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel." The film also stars Amy Adams as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Laurence Fishburne as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent's adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Diane Lane and Kevin Costner.

Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, and Faora, Zod's evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman's native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman's mother, played by Ayelet Zurer, and Superman's father, Jor-El, portrayed by Russell Crowe. Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.

I've been watching the first couples of episodes of E4's Misfits with great interest.

Its got good and bad points. I'm no prude but I think its a bit to coarse at times, they are trying so hard to make superheroes for the Skins generation.

What I love though is the inherant differences between British superheroes and their American counterparts. The UK heroes ( or often anti-heroes) shun capes and tights as a rule, and replace them with sarcasm and quirkiness.
This continues the trend set by The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, both in book and film , which itself borrowed from a wealth of earlier British heroic fiction.
I must also give a nod not only to Albion , but also its inspiration the British comics of the 50's 60's and 70's . Good info found here .
2000AD's Zenith and Marvel UK's Captain Britain also played a huge part in introducing these earlier heroes and their hard to find stories to a new generation. I would love for the old Lion, Vulcun , Hotspur etc heroes to have their old stories collected into a set of graphic novels if copyright allows.

Her's hoping its a trend that continues into the 21st Century.

First Appearance: Pokemon Episode 1 – Pokemon, I Choose You
Voiced by:
Ikue Otani

Who ever thought we would get a rat that would become more famous than Jerry from Tom and Jerry? Not me. But this is where Pikachu and the billion dollars franchise known as Pokemon comes in. Even 13 years after throwing red and white balls at creatures known as Pokemon the franchise is still going and only getting stronger with games being released every year since its first release. And seriously who didn't play the video games as a kid of the 90s.

The one leading the charge of the Pokemon phenomenon is Pikachu. He/She is the poster child for Pokemon and it is incredible that the character and series are still around as kids are still playing the games. And how much bigger can a character get when you appear as a Thanksgiving float. You are an icon when you get your own float which is what Pikachu has been able to do.

Back again

Reading a computer magazine yesterday, I thought to myself,
" I really should create a blog . "

Then I remembered that I already have this one. I recalled my login, and will try over the next few days to update both the look and the content. Then I just need some worthwhile topics to waffle on about.
