Fook Yeah! Kick-Ass 2 Coming Out in 2012!
This past week in movie news has been like manna from heaven. First, it was announced that Christopher Nolan’s Batman 3 is scheduled for July 2012. And then just yesterday, Mark Millar announced a cinematic release for Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall. The announcement was included in Millar’s plans to launch a UK based comics magazine called “CLINT.” According to Millar, “…what really excites me is the gap I see in the UK market at the moment. There are absolutely no comic-books aimed at 16-30 year old guys and I think CLiNT has potential to make an enormous impact, bringing a new type of magazine to a new generation.”
From what I understand, Clint Mag is the comics book magazine you’ll find at your local U.K. book store or grocery store. From the press release, “The 100-page magazine will be packed with interviews and features from movies, games and television as well as four serialized comic-strips.” As far as Kick-Ass is concerned…
A Freak Accident PSA
For those of you who might not have heard, there’s been a freak accident oil spill in the Gulf Coast. But oil spill is misleading; it’s more like a freak accident oil geyser pumping petroleum into the ocean. To give you some scope into how serious this problem is, I’ve attached the picture above.
And that is your freak accident PSA of the day.

Zooey Deschanel is Ada Lovelace

And here we arrive…Conan moving to TBS
After all the hoopla, the internet support, the tweets, the live-show which has yet to commence, Conan makes his next and hopefully longer-lived career move. Conan will be hosting a show on TBS, bumping George Lopez to midnight. Yeah, I know; it’s ironic that Conan “Leno’d” George Lopez, except that Conan is more talented, more popular right now, and would do more for George Lopez’s career than Leno would have done for Conan. But it seems like everyone is asking the question, “WTF?! Why TBS?” After everyone was expecting a move to Fox so Conan could go head-to-head-to-head with Letterman and Leno, this TBS deal is from left field.
The Chess World’s Viagra
Alexandra Konstantinovna Kosteniuk is a Russian chess Grandmaster and the Women’s World Champion. She also models to promote the game of chess. It looks like Alexandra has found a niche market; she has the chess champion/model game by the balls. She’s the Mila Kunis of chess for her uncanny resemblance to every dark-haired Russian model I’ve ever seen.
If I were to become a chess Grandmaster and win the world championship, Playgirl is not going to call me up and ask me to pose nude for their cover story, “Cas Ruffin: Making Chess Hard Again.” But if they want to do that, the dude abides (Guess what I was watching this morning.)
Too bad she’s married and has a kid. Dealbreaker. Maybe the rules for marriage + baby are different in Russia. In America, the acceptable age for a man to start a family is 45. At that age, he has seen much of life and is more likely to die from prostate cancer before it starts to get bad.
And if you have a loved one who suffered from prostate cancer, I’m just saying…men at that age are high-risk.
