ClarkKent_DC replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Green Lantern
"I think that's why in most comics today, being a superhero is shown as being a full-time job. Which may be more "realistic," but I don't think it's been a wholly positive change. From a storytelling standpoint, the job and…"

"Well, some people think the ONLY way to do "The Star-Spangled Banner" is in stentorian operatic style. Something like, say the way Marvin Gaye did it at the NBA All-Star Game in 1983, makes people's heads explode."

"Supergirl" to end with Season 6

From TV Line: "Supergirl Ending With Season 6"I read somewhere -- can't find it -- that the call to bring the show to an end was a mutual decision because of declining ratings, the production holdup because of coronavirus, and the production adjustments needed to work around star Melissa Benoist's pregnancy. See More

Ten years ago today ...

Posted on February 20, 2011 at 7:56pm 19 Comments

On this day 10 years ago, I was in an accident that totaled my car. I am grateful today for three things: 



That I was in the car by myself; I doubt a passenger would have survived.



That I walked away from it whole; save for some pain in my side that lasted about a week, I was and remain physically sound.



That God saw fit to spare me, that I may carry on in this world and be the husband, father and person He wants me to be.

 

I am also grateful to have…

President Luthor (from the old board)

Posted on September 21, 2009 at 10:30am 9 Comments

From the old board, I launched the "President Luthor" thread with this post (July 21, 2003):





At my last visit to my friendly neighborhood comics shop, I say the President Luthor trade paperback. I haven't read the Superman titles for several years (heresy, I know), and the notion of Lex Luthor becoming President of the U.S. wasn't enough to entice me back.



It's a nifty idea, I'll admit ... but the time to do it was very shortly after the… Continue

Bugs Bunny, the greatest baseball player ever

Posted on August 18, 2009 at 2:49pm 3 Comments

I just ran across this sportswriter's analysis of "Baseball Bugs," the classic Looney Tunes short in which Bugs Bunny takes on the Gas House Gorillas all by himself -- starting in the fourth inning of a game in which the Gorillas are leading the Tea Totallers 54-0 -- and wins 96-95. It's funny because it's so, so serious ... "Bugs Bunny, Greatest Banned Player Ever"

(Sorry. My original post had the wrong link

The church is Wesley-Knox United Church in London, Ontario. They drew a sizable crowd to Chaney's Phantom

I have some links below. You'd have to contact them for further information:

Another church with almost the same name  apparently did something similar in Cambridge, Ontario:
