Club 33Ever since I visited Club 33 in February 2010 and wrote about it, it has been one of my most popular posts on Red Carpet Closet, and it has been my top viewed video on YouTube.  Well, the day has come and Disney has revealed some insider secrets about membership, because they are opening the waiting list for the first time in a decade.  The Orange County Register divulged the details last week, and I am here to give you all of the highlights:

WonderWomanPH MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

 

Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge Wonder Woman fan. I was wonderfully surprised to discover the latest in WW merchandise that would be creating a further deficit in my bank account...(Drum roll required!)...Mrs. Potato Head in a Wonder Woman costume! I honestly did not think I could find anything cooler than my Wonder Woman Snugee.  I don't really have to tell you why this is the coolest thing on the planet, but I will tell you that they are doing a Superman one too...I may have peed my pants. Just a little.  The Wonder Woman and Super Spuds will be in specialty and comic stores this August. Holla!

Rogue AvX MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

 

It would be easy to knock Marvel for its shameless summer promotion, pitting its old money horse against its new champion stallion, but it's much more fun to jump on the zombie bandwagon and make mine Marvel.

Continuing my fantasy scenario possibility outcomes from this summer's mega crossover, I ponder Rogue permanently reasoning Ms. Marvel - adding the powers of Binary to her own leaching, God-given mutant ability.

Mind the Gap MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

 

When I first heard the title Mind the Gap, I was immediately taken back to my tenure as a "Gap Girl" one holiday season.  The longest 3 days of my life. What? It was difficult being rude and indifferent to customers all the time.  No? So, I did it for the employee discount and then bailed. It may have been a short tour of duty, yet I still line up my sweaters, so the top button faces out on the shelf. (Maybe Pavlov's pooch shoulda' been a Gap girl!)

Person of InterestOn Tuesday, the Paley Center for Media honored a breakout CBS show from this past television season, Person of Interest.  The show came out of the gate as one of the highest rated pilots of the season by critics and one of the highest testing pilots for CBS in the last fifteen years.  Person of Interest quickly received a full first season pickup order of twenty-two episodes, and then received a Season 2 pickup order in March of this year.  It's a show that the network has confidence in, and the fans have spoken by awarding it the People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama in January.  With a strong cast and crew behind the show and names like J.J. Abrams, Jonathan Nolan, Jim Caveziel, and Michael Emerson leading the way, Person of Interest stands to become a legacy show for CBS.

Nightcrawler MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 


The last time I checked, Nightcrawler bit the teleportation dust in Uncanny X-Men, so imagine my delight when I found him alive and well in Uncanny X-Force. I don't know why or when he came back, as I am merely a visitor to the X-Verse these days and not a resident, but who am I to look a gift elf in the pie hole?

Fifty Shades MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy


Let me begin this by saying that I am a contrarian and often disagree with what satiates most of the spoon-fed populace.  Imagine my horror when I discovered the latest sensation to terrorize the country in the form of a 3-part novel series, Fifty Shades of Grey, by E.L. James. What started as Twilight fanfic and was later reworked into the smut d'jour has exploded into viral popularity in the age of mediocrity.  With titillating bondage and other cornball fantasies to roll your bean to, it is evidently "revolutionizing" life in the bedroom for women everywhere, igniting dormant flames of fire left and right. Even Dr. Oz (that big hornball!) and 20/20 are on the Shades tip.

Tony DenisonIf you thought awards season was over, don't worry, there is always an awards show happening in Hollywood.  Last Thursday, I had the opportunity to cover the 16th Annual Prism Awards, which honor the accurate depiction of social issues in TV and Film. Honorees included shows like Parenthood and Southland, as well as actors and TV personalities from William H. Macy, Craig T. Nelson, and Dr. Drew for focusing in on issues like substance abuse, mental illness, and PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) in military veterans.  The yellow carpet was filled with celebs, and I got the inside scoop from some of your favorite television actors.

Blonde Squad digital promoBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

What happens when shallow, blonde superheroes join a super team just to be famous? Nothing good. The Blonde Squad is a feast of pop culture satire that follows the exploits of four ditzy, blonde heroes that mean well. The team consists of resident muscle and eye candy from a different world - BLONDER MAN, a famous for nothing socialite that can suck the energy out of anything - DRAIN, Drain's closet-case cousin and team speedster - SPEEDBUMP, and is rounded out by Nordic beauty and team psychic - PSIGHT. Under the wing of their founder and mentor, power publicist to the stars Kandi Kramer, will The Blonde Squad soar to new heights or face the public humiliation that fame and infamy can bring? And, just what secret is the faithful publicist hiding? Is there no such thing as bad publicity or will that be the ultimate downfall of The Blonde Squad?

Lethally Blonde Productions is proud to announce that The Blonde Squad has found a digital home at Mydigitalcomics.com.  The pop culture satire sleeper hit is a must read. It is now available in bright, beautiful digital for the blonde-friendly price of only $1.99!

Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the '70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael's first published book, Homo-Hero's Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the "Divas and Lassoes" panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his "underground" status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit). Check out Michael Troy and Lethally Blonde updates here!!!
