Age of Ultron tomorrow.

I gather that it doesn’t suck. Should I be trying to see it in 3D, though? It’s not the gimmick that it was in the days of my childhood, but it still seems a bit hyped.

I have returned from the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.

There were sheep.  And wool! It was a successful outing.

I am now going to go take a nap.

What? You’re still at the computer? Go outside!

It’s a beautiful day out and my family is visiting.  Shoo! Shoo! :making vague waving motions: Go fire up the grill, or something. Or maybe hit a jazz/wine festival – YES, YOU ARE PROBABLY OLD ENOUGH TO BE ONE OF ‘THOSE PEOPLE’ – or, well, anything else.  Shoot, even a movie at least gets you out of the house.

Seriously, folks, go have a nice morning.

‘Stand By Me.’

Rest in peace, Ben E. King.

Stand By Me, Ben E. King

I’m not going to be That Guy who goes through Ben E. King’s repertoire to find something obscure and say Yeah, this is what you should like.  This is his most memorable song for a reason.

In which Carl Moore humbles us all.

I hope that the guy lives for another twenty years, but I’m pretty sure that we all know what’s going on Carl Moore’s tombstone.

‘The Power.’

The PowerSnap!

The exclamation point is apparently required.

An observation sparked by @SonnyBunch’s ranking of MCU flicks.

The list itself is OK, although I quibble that Captain America: The First Avenger is ranked too low. But while I agree that this is the best bit in all the films…

Regarding this threatened 21 Jump Street / Men In Black movie crossover.

…Oh, I’m sorry: was that unexpected news? Here you go:

In the midst of last year’s Sony hack, one rather interesting snippet of news concerned the possible merging of the Jump Street and Men in Black film franchises. Seriously, I’m not kidding. Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have spoken out about the rumored project several times. According to Miller, it’s a concept “that makes you think.” Head-scratching hilarity aside, it looks like this fever dream of a movie might actually happen.
