Pink Slime MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Pink is my second favorite color right after baby blue; however, current events may change all that.  What the hell am I talking about? Well, they say ignorance is bliss and the ignorant are probably happily gobbling down some tainted ground love.

Pink slime is the culprit of which I speak...otherwise known as the mystery meat treated with ammonia used as a filler in lean, textured ground beef. Ralph!

Wrath of the Titans MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Sam Worthington may have traded his close-cropped coif for curly locks, but I'd recognize those gorgeous gams anywhere. Aside from Oscar/Jolie, I dare you to show me a better set of legs in Hollywood. Okay, gratuitous, smarmy remark aside, how about a movie review?

In a time of gods and monsters and really bad hygiene and scraggly hair, it's father against brother son against uncle and no cable TV.

Scarlet Phoenix MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Well, well, well...Avengers vs. X-Men is off to an expected start this week, as Marvel gears up for a huge summer crossover. I can only surmise how this came to be. I expect Marvel was panicking over all of the hype its Distinguished Competition was receiving over the mixed bag relaunch and "New 52." (52 is the new 20 BtW.) Marvel being the spoiled brat that it is couldn't not be on top and, apparently, decided to retaliate with not only one of their big guns but two by pitting its two most popular franchises against each other. The 1st issue was enjoyable enough by Brian Michael (on my way out of Avengers Mansion, thank Jesus) Bendis and serviceable art robot John Romita Jr. I enjoyed the 0 issue and Frank Cho's zaftig good girl art gone wild much better.

Barbra as KatnissBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

First of all to all you persnickety poo poohs, I don't really know all there is to know about The Hunger Games. I'm just being referential to an old pop culture reference. As a matter of fact, I came on a little late in the game. (Oh, how I love puns!)

I had heard buzz about the books being like Twilight, so, naturally, the simile triggered my gag reflex. Don't get me wrong, I'm as ready for a shirtless werewolf or vampire as the next queen, but I really don't need to see Kristen Stewart popping out the demon seed.

It was actually my colleague, editor, and ultimate Fangirl Barbra J. Dillon that convinced me to get on the Hunger tip. She's obsessed with Katniss and even dresses up as her in an RKO fireside chat-type portrayal of Miss Everdeen in The Katniss Chronicles. Yes, she is that girl! Don't fret, she is absolutely perfect as Katniss, so much so I even imagine Babs as Katniss when I read the books. I seldom read books without pictures, so that is kind of a big deal. Needless to say, I immediately fell in love with the book! (Thanks, Barb!) Now, on to the movie.
