I’ve been avoiding the clips of Age of Ultron over the past few weeks. I’m going to see that movie, so I’d rather experience as much as possible for the first time on the big screen. This shielding effort will likely become more and more difficult as Tumblr gets ahold of new assets to share.

But, let’s talk about some other movies – because yay!

If “we’re home” didn’t put a smile on your face, check your pulse.

Just Talking with Justin Korthof

I’m Sharing This So You Will Read It

I find myself slowly investing more time and thought into comics. Both the medium and the resulting cinematic universes. With that vague, and rushed introduction, I invite you to read this blog post from Justin Korthof about the DC Cinematic Universe. Of all the people I know who think about this stuff, Justin thinks about it most – and most intelligently.

I don’t think that last summer’s “Man of Steel” is about Superman at all. –

Also, I saw a Macleren on my drive back from Stanford last night. The whip envy was quite strong.

Project Blue Tights

I had a serious problem with Episode 80. The conversation I had with Robot Entertainment Community Manager Justin Korthof was too much fun. It could have lasted for two hours. Quite frankly, I’m considering breaking my no-repeat-guest rule to get him back on my show. But enough about the future, let’s get to the present.

Episode 80 is about all facets of community management. From video games to major motion pictures. From Geocities to Twitter followers and Facebook ‘Likes’. There’s also a heavy dose of comic talk including but not limited to culture, entreprenuership, movies, and walking down Sunset Boulevard with Bryan Singer.

Please excuse me as I pick up that name I just dropped. And please excuse the static that occasionally pops in this one, I had a few issues in the editing booth.

If you’d like to keep up with Justin, Robot Entertainment or the CM List, pay attention to the bullet list below:

Finally, if you stuck around through the outro, this post about Inception will be of great value to you.
