If you've got, y'know, an extra 5 large laying around...

Speaking of Breaking News....

Check this out. It happened just 40 minutes west of Winnipeg last night. Right out of a Tarantino movie. Anyone want to visit Winnipeg?

By The Canadian Press

PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, Man. - Police haven't confirmed it, but a passenger says a gruesome attack on a Greyhound bus near Portage la Prairie, Man., has left a young man stabbed to death and decapitated and dozens of passengers in shock.

The RCMP and Greyhound officials will only say that a "major incident" occurred on the bus Wednesday night, but have not provided any details.

But a passenger who said he saw the attack said a man repeatedly stabbed a seat mate, and eventually severed his head.

"We heard this blood-curdling scream and turned around and the guy was standing up, stabbing this guy repeatedly, like 40 or 50 times," Garnet Caton said Thursday morning from a hotel in Brandon, where he and other passengers had been taken to rest.

Caton said everyone on the bus scrambled to get out, and he and the bus driver shut the door from the outside while they awaited police.

Eventually, the attacker came to the front of the bus and showed them he had cut off the victim's head, Caton said.

The bus had been carrying 37 passengers and the driver to Winnipeg from Edmonton.

At one point, Mounties surrounded the bus with one officer standing just a few feet away from an unidentified man sitting in the driver's seat.

A man was taken into custody after the standoff with police.

A portion of the Trans-Canada Highway, about 15 kilometres west of Portage la Prairie, remained closed Thursday morning.

Yellow tape surrounded the empty bus and RCMP officers were still on the scene. Traffic was being rerouted onto a side road.

My Highlight from SDCC

I barely saw Jonesy. Ran into Mar a few times, though.

I met Stan Lee

It was definitely a highlight of Comic-Con 2008 for me.
I'll have a complete story about hanging with Stan on the CBR yacht up on in the next couple days.

The Dark Knight

I know there's an email thread going around, but I wanted to post here for everyone to see that I think that the Nolans have done a brilliant job on the script, Christopher Nolan has directed that script in new and interesting ways for comic book movies and finally the actors ALL turned in excellent performances.

The best of the Joker's and Harvey Dent's history ran smack into the Batman and it's magnificent. For now, I sum up the film in one word: Sacrifice. My son does it with: Dignity.

Both work for me and I will think about it a little more and be able to support those thoughts. However, for now, I need a little levity and laughs. It's overwhelming, The Dark Knight, and will take some time to assimilate.

More on my my LiveJournal later this week, and in the comments here.

UPDATE: Seth confesses he had issues with the movie. Bring 'em here, man, and let's talk about it. I think I know where you're going, and I'm sure it would be interesting to show our (likely) diametrically opposed viewpoints. What do you think?

GREAT TURNOUT this time. Thanks to everyone who contributed. Remove your socks before you load this issue, unless you want to walk about 100 yards to retrieve them.

Finally something worth a damn on Itunes

Does everyone here have an Ipod? Even if you don't, you need to download Itunes. Why? 'Cause they've just added DC animated series to their TV shows lineup. That's right, you can now watch such pimp classics as the old Fleischer Studios Superman and the JLA knockoff, The SuperFriends, among others. And the best part is you can watch them on your PC (or Mac if you swing that way). Way, way cool. Now you can put on your Superman Underoos, load up on some Lucky Charms and ingest nostalgia till it bleeds out your ears. All we need now is some Spiderman and his Amazing Friends...
