Thanks, Gaga!

By Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and, um, Lady Gaga's 90-minute commercial for her new holiday EP and Born This Way remix album- er, rather 90-minute Thanksgiving special, A Very Gaga Thanksgiving.

Anyone who knows me knows I love Lady Gaga. I did try to ca$h in on her popularity with my Gaga tribute comic book, Going Gaga!, after all.

Directed and produced by Gaga herself, I have to say it was highly entertaining and beautifully shot.

The following is an interview with Trevor Roth, producer of Trek Nation, a documentary that follows Gene Roddenberry's son, Rod, as he explores the deep impact of his father's singular vision for the future.

Roth talks to Fanboy Comics President Bryant Dillon about the enduring Star Trek fandom, Rod Roddenberry’s quest to understand his father, and his love and loyalty for Captain Picard!

"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and, at times, hard to handle. But, if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." 
― Marilyn Monroe

 

That is one of the many fantastic quotes of the late, great tortured genius Marilyn Monroe.

Sadly, or amazingly - depending of how full your glass is, it is also one of her quotes I relate to the most. I was truly saddened by the tragic death of the blonde bombshell. Of course, she died long before I was born, but it was tragic nonetheless. My mother idolized Norma Jean and passed the torch on to me. (Blonde is as Blonde does!) When I was young, one of my bedroom walls was dedicated to Madonna, but the one I could see while laying in bed was dedicated to Marilyn.

Teen Titans #3 sees the introduction of DC Nu's lame excuse for a bandwagon-riding gay addition to the team with the introduction of "Bunker" (aka Miguel Jose Barragan and his psionic "big purple fist")... Um.

Gay Marriage being legal is eligible for vote again here in California after being legalized for five minutes.

Next week they are thinking about taking back women's right to vote. Up next on the ballot is reinstating slavery. American is writing one embarrassing history book here.

We live in a society where Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian can legally get married for five minutes whenever they want, but when a man loves a man, it is up for vote. How dumb.

Barbra Dillon, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor: Pendant Productions is an audio production group that creates and produces radio dramas.  For those who may be unfamiliar, what is a radio drama?

I know, I know. Everyone is sick of hearing about Sarah Palin. Now that she isn't running for President, I suppose she's not as relevant as before. One could argue that Michele Bachmann is the new form the devil has taken. But, in one form or another, it seems Palin always turns up to capture our curiosity in one form or another.
