I can tell you this, in all certainty, I will NEVER, NEVER, EVER be buying the iPad, or as I prefer to call it…iPaperweight.
Ok..this is one of the most fucked up stories I’ve ever heard. They are planning on making a stage show starring the caped crusader. Ummmmmmm….what? Am I the only one who sees how fucked up this is?? Do the producers not remember what happened to the Lord of the Rings stage show…epic fail really..at least in Toronto. Actually I believe the only production of this that had any sort of success is the London Stage Productions. Critics otherwise panned this thing, and I can only imagine what the theatre critics would have to say about this abortion if it ever comes to light.
This is just a bad idea all around. Batman is a deep, dark, complex character. Any stage show, no matter how much cash they throw at this thing, is not going to do this beloved character any justice. With all the graphic novels, comic books, video games, and movies out there. What possible story could there be to tell on stage that could not be told 1000 times better in one of the other mediums I just mentioned. The lore and story of the caped crusader can not be told properly in a live stage setting. Lets keep Grease and Jersey Boys on the stage and keep Batman on the big screen.
Whats next…Spiderman the musical?? Ironman Kick line on broadway. Give me a fricking break
Only thing that is more blog-worthy is the whole release of 3D TV…Ok..here’s my 2 cents worth. It’s too much. I’m a huge gadget guy..I love tech and all the stuff that comes along with it. But when I have to wear a pair of glasses that cost hundreds of dollars just to watch a TV that they’re not even really putting out programming for yet. Well that’s just a little too much. I’m going to just bide my time with this one like I did with the whole Blu-Ray/HD DVD war. I didn’t commit to a format till I knew which one would be victorious. (as an aside, I predicted right…sony lost the whole betamax/vhs war despite being a superior format, it was like it was supposed to be) So I’m going to wait..maybe some holographic 3D TV that doesn’t require glasses. These days Who knows
Oh and here’s the Link to the article that spawned this post
In my limited experience, actors for the most part are a pretty eccentric and flakey bunch. Great people for the TV and movies but as the Queen’s rep in our government…ummmm.me no likey. Canada already has a hard enough time on the world stage being taken seriously. Can you imagine if Governor General TJ Hooker was one of the ways we got our identity in the world media? Like I said..I like the guy..as an actor…Leave the acting to the actors and leave politics to the politicians.
Well Here we go again….gonna try to keep up with this blog thing. Sharing my thoughts, feelings, geekish leanings etc.
See if it takes this time
Oh and I love being a dad
