Summer of Snake
They say that on the internet, Content is King. So this Summer, this site is going to see a real upswing in new material. Starting now, I'm going to shoot for a post a day every weekday until the end of August. Can I get it done between cookouts, floating around in other people's pools, trips to the movies, and working for a living? We'll see. It's not exactly Rocket Science.
What's already sending me for the season is the new X-Men movie, which was better than anyone expected. Sometimes the best thing that can happen to a property like that is for it to get put in a corner. Since Fox bought the movie rights to the X-Men stable of characters over a decade ago, Marvel has gone on to rule Hollywood and establish their own movie making brand, now owned by Disney. You might've heard about that. Anyway, Fox made this flick without much help/editorial influence from above, and since the last two in the series weren't so hot, they let the filmmakers (which include Bryan Singer) get experimental. Which means it could've easily been terrible. There's a feeling the people in charge said "This is probably our last shot at this and they expect us to fail, let's knock this shit out." If you're a fan of the series or into 60's swinging cool and Spy-Fi, you should go.
And now, a word from Eddie Cochran.
See you back here tomorrow. We'll talk about one of my favorite movies ever.
