I wish I could have stuck with Smallville (a.k.a. I wish it didn’t turn to such suck)

This older promo picture is pretty cool, like most promo pictures for Smallville, but it suffers from the same affliction as the show: all flash no substance.

The latest cool promo picture is at the end of the post, but first let us look at exactly what Smallville is (and try to figure out how it has lasted 10 seasons).

Album Obsessions – Alabama “Roll On”

Three albums into this list and I am discovering a trend that kind of surprises me. So much of my early attraction to music is based upon emotion, as opposed to the music itself. I guess that is actually quite consistent. In my attempts earlier this year to become an amateur music critic I quickly realized my inability to go beyond the music that I connected to and analyze it more scientifically and objectively. If I don’t love the music then I just don’t have time for it.

Joss Passed on Buffy Reboot – Makes Sense

This article at The Hollywood Reporter states that the recently announced Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot was offered to Joss last year and he declined.

This makes sense to me.  It would be one thing if it were to be a revival of the original cast (if that is even possible after all these years) and storyline that he loved, but a reboot is a much different animal.  I can understand not wanting to take something that you spent so many years crafting and just do it differently.  Where would the inspiration come from?  We already know what Joss Whedon’s take on Buffy is, how would he undo that and start from scratch?

Plus … The Avengers.  Hello!!

I still do not see a need for a new take on Buffy, especially so soon, but that is another rant filled with comments about original ideas and leaving perfection alone and Twilight sucks and all that.

Which Avenger Will Die?

I was having a conversation in my head about this article, arguing whether or not I thought China Miéville was a pompous wind-bag with regards to his JJ Abrahms comments.  I started thinking about my own history with Star Trek.  I have watched most of the movies and watched a fair bit of TNG and Voyageur, but I never have considered myself a fan.  Let’s explore that for a moment.

Buffy Drink

Cheers to Jones soda for avoiding the clichéd jokes in their Buffy the Vampire Slayer limited edition series.

I don’t think it would be appropriate, though, for me to drink the Root Beer.
