GEEK: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST MAKES THE COVER!

EW-13071308-XMEN.jpg

We get a first look at the new Summer Movie Preview cover of Entertainment Weekly featuring the iconic characters from X-Men: Days of Future Past. This epic is set for only one film, but will be packed with many mutants and a rich storyline of time-travel, assassination, redemption, salvation, and betrayal. Just who does any of these things is the real question. I have to admit that I miss Rebecca Romijn a bit, but J.Law will do.

TV: David Letterman: Who should replace him?

20140403-182345.jpg

Dave Letterman (my homie) is retiring and they are already circling the carcass. Dave Letterman has truly influenced a generation of comedians, which is amazing for a “comedian” who would probably classify himself as marginal. Dave was an inspiration for me in his late night incarnations for NBC and CBS. To me, he surpasses Carson because of his ambition to shine a light on real world issues, aside from spotlighting new and up and coming comedians. He has started the careers of a few (Romano and James), but he has more so brought issues to light and questioned the absurdity of frustrating political conflagrations. Letterman is an institution unto himself and should be feted by every late night progenitor existing today. I’m sure he will be.

My vote is Amy Poehler as CBS would steal a Lorne Michaels protege and would position her against her very good friend Jimmy Fallon and Kimmel. Poehler would be brilliant.

Geek: Tim Burton in his Early Days

Did you know that Tim Burton was once a fledgling Disney animator? Well, here is a strange video of an apparent tour of the Disney animator offices from the ’80s. Tim seems rightfully out of it, but also he looks stunningly just like the kid-Dr. Frankenstein he created for FrankenWeenie!

Cool little nugget that YouTube always seems to produce.
