Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang continue their thrilling run on the new Wonder Woman, as Issue #3 opens in the aftermath of Issue #2, as the Amazons torch their dead sisters and build paradise lost anew, as they have so many times in the past. Kinda makes you "wonder" how there is a neverending supply of the female warrior race without a single penis within a three-mile radius?

"There isn't a door in the world that beauty can't open," says the demented and mysterious Jessica Lange in one of my new favorite television series, American Horror Story on FX.

American Horror Story
is a new nighttime soap with some seriously twisted story lines. Taking place in Los Angeles, an unfaithful psychiatrist and his wife buy a new house in an attempt to salvage their failing marriage. (Um, good idea.)

It's fitting that Pan Am centers around a hurricane this week, as the show seems to pick up speed. The first fifteen minutes read like a '70s disaster film, and I couldn't be more thrilled. It's exactly the white-knuckled, over-the-top excitement I was hoping for, as the crew is forced to make an emergency landing in a closed airport, because one of the passengers, who is making his first flight, is having a heart attack. And then? And then, it becomes Tropic Thunder-meets-Hotel Rwanda-meets The A-Team, as the crew is stranded and terrorized in Haiti.

There is a wonderful thing that happens each year around this time. Thousands of video gamers and nerds gather together and give millions of dollars every year to children’s hospitals. The goal is not to provide money for treatment or cures; those are pretty well covered by other charities. Child’s Play is a charity that gives video games, books, and toys to these hospitals, so that the kids aren’t forced to think about being sick the whole time they are trapped in the hospital.

L-U-V Madonna! Y-O-U, you wanna? Yes! Yes, I do. Madonna's new song leaked on the Internet, and I couldn't be happier. First, let me say how funny I think it is that EVERYTHING leaks on the internet these days. Look at Lady Gaga; she queefs and it "accidentally" leaks within seconds.

Madonna's new song, "Give Me All Your Love," has leaked and I liked it. At first listen, I immediately dismissed it as a rip off of Katy Perry's "Peacock," as it has that same '80s Cheerleader anthem vibe. After 150 plays on my iPod, it has grown on me tremendously. It just so happens to be a killer cardio song. God knows it made my time on the elliptical machine fly by like a ray of light today.

Recently, Jeremy Rogers and David Accampo announced they were creating a comic book miniseries with artist Jared Souza based off of their audio drama, WormwoodWormwood was a serialized occult mystery that followed parapsychologist Dr. Xander Crowe, as he investigated the strange goings-on in the small town of Wormwood, California.  Many compare it to the television series Twin Peaks or The X-Files for its use of both supernatural and mystery elements.  Wormwood lasted for three seasons and has deservedly earned a lot of praise for its storytelling, memorable characters, and snappy dialogue.

Oh boy, where to begin with X-Men Destiny? When I first heard of the game about a year ago, it just didn't seem like something that grabbed my attention. Sure, it's a cool idea to play as an original character, choose your own powers, and fight alongside the X-Men, but something just didn't sit right. You know that feeling when you're reading previews for games and you just KNOW it's going to be terrible? This is that game. And, the fact that I played it coming right off of amazing games like Uncharted 3 and Arkham City made this experience just that much more painful.


At the start of the game we find ourselves at a rally following the death of Charles Xavier. Here we meet our 3 main characters to choose from. But, choose wisely, my friends! For the choice you make probably doesn't make any difference whatsoever, besides each character's own personal "story line." I chose the little Japanese girl, Aimi Yoshida, voiced by Jamie Chung, since I like faster characters, but, again, I don't think it really would have mattered. The mutant power I chose was Shadow Matter, which is a quick teleporting-type ability that's fast and manipulates matter into shadow-like blades. Hence the name. The other 2 powers that I didn't choose were Energy Projection, which I think is pretty self-explanatory, and Density Control. Density Control sounds interesting when you first read the description...
