R.I.P. Stan, The Man, Lee.

Stan The Man LeeStan lived an amazing 95 years of life, and became a part of everyone’s family. This makes it feel even worse that near the end after his wife had passed, that the people who were actually close to him and should have been taking care of him, took advantage of him.

It is also sad that this WW2 hero passed away on veterans day.

Sgt Stan LeeStan went into the service in 1942, with his last rank being that of Sergeant. Wanting to be like the character he had written about, Captain America, but when it was found out that he was a writer, they stuck him in a room with a bunch of other creatives in the Signal Corps Photographic Center, writing training films and manuals. There he worked with the greats such as the acclaimed director Frank Capra, cartoonist Charles Addams, and even Dr. Seuss himself Theodor Geisel.

stan lee meets spider manStan and his friends such as Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko are legends in the comic book industry, and so much money has been made off of their hard work, some even by Stan himself of course, that it’s hard not to feel a bit bitter than things got the way they did without anyone successfully being able to intervene on Mr. Lee’s behalf.

Stan Lee was born Stanley Lieber in 1922. Legend says that he saved his real name for when he started to write more respected stuff, such as novels, although he admitted later that it was also faster to write that name down. When once asked about what his middle name in his on-going column in Marvel’s comic books, Stan’s Soapbox, he lamented that he had really shortchanged himself because he no longer had one.

J Jonah JamesonStan Lee’s work at Marvel comics should not be understated. He took a failing company, and brought them into greatness. He created the Marvel Universe, and most of the characters inside of it. Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, The X-Men, oh man… so very much.

I could go on for forever talking about this great man and his legacy… Stan… we all loved you so very much… and it pains us that we have to live on without you. I sincerely hope that you are at peace now.

Excelsior!

Frightfest @ Fiesta Texas 2018

I went to my 2nd Fright Fest ever this year at Fiesta Texas, and compared to their bar the last time I went a year or two ago, they truly outdid themselves! The pageantry was really good, and I sadly did not take a picture of everything because honestly… I wasn’t expecting to talk about it.

One of my only major complaints about it was the fact that I thought that the coasters would be lit up during it, but they were just the same as usual… but dark… which is actually more fun! The Iron Rattler this time was kind of like being in a tunnel the entire time, and that is AWESOME!

I should be going to a Six Flags Fright Fest again sometime soon-ish, so expect more next time!

Wonder Woman’s Golden Lasso Coaster

20181013_155732I went to Six Flags Fiesta Texas over the weekend, and much to my surprise, Wonder Woman has joined the stable of DC comic book inspired coasters. Batman, Superman, and at one time even The Joker had a coaster in this park…

While Wonder Woman is celebrated in the park, out went Scooby-Doo’s Ghost Blasters elsewhere in the park last January… as they make room for a new in-door ride based on Pirates… here’s hoping that they have part of it dedicated to the nautical threat of Mermaids?

Let’s take a look at this coaster, shall we? By that… I mean the decor mostly!

 

 

 

Wow! But what of the experience it self? Here is a video taken by the youtube channel CoasterForce that shows off this amazing ride!

 

 

Adam Driver is no Chris Farley

Adam Driver recently hosted Saturday Night Live, where there was a sketch that paid tribute to the classic Chris Farley coffee sketch… which… I just can’t find the entire clip of on Youtube anymore. Not saying that SNL pulled the clips to suppress the fact that their new version of this sketch just misses the mark…

The original Chris Farley sketch can be found here on NBC’s website: https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/schillervision-hidden-camera/n10139

Just a reminder, if SNL did crack down on this sketch then… NBC…

The Little Mermaid 2 turns 18 today!

 

kOh my Disney! Let’s celebrate this by playing a pinball game on our Gameboy Color!

Seriously… GBC pinball was the best they could do back in the day?

When The Little Mermaid was an AMAZING game the made Disney bounce back to glory in what was known as the Disney Renaissance, just being good was not good enough for it’s Y2K sequel… but… eh… it’s fine. Not great though. Oh, and Tara Strong, Twilight Sparkle, plays her daughter Melody? That’s something?

Like I said, not terrible… but this movie is not even close to being as good as the first one… still though… Ariel’s kids movie is legal now… that’s something.
