Kit’s Awesome Vid of the Day
Iron Man 3 Trailer
I am going to watch this over and over because it is so very awesome and with the hope it will help sooth the pain of the Cards losing last night.
My office needs a door…that can be locked…and then barred with a big railroad tie.
My ninebullets radio sticker came in the mail today!!!
I haven’t put it up anywhere permanently since I was going to stick it on my gig bag but decided I want it in the office instead. Now if they would just make a ninebullets radio coffee cup.
I have shiny new Patterson Hood up in the sidebar jukebox today!
Check out “Come Back Little Star” a preview track from his upcoming album Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance. I love the piano on this track – it is so very pretty. You can download your own copy from the link below -
I got my key for the City of Steam preview yesterday so I will be MMO’ing this weekend.
Huh, I ran out of exclamation points. Anyway…the plan is to game test City of Steam and finish my Dawnguard review. Possibly also toss the girls in the pool if the weather will cooperate.
I picked up the new Captain Marvel # 1 this morning. The Marvel Captain Marvel with Carol Danvers, not the DC Captain Marvel.
I love the new costume. The hair – the gloves – the everything.
(And seriously dudes, it isn’t like there is a shortage of thigh-high boots in the comic ‘verse. Trust me, you all will survive the trama of one super chick in pants.)
You can pick up Captain Marvel #1 at your local comic shop or order it online. I picked my copy up and pre-ordered the next three issues over on Things From Another World.
Need to make this quick as I have to go start the bread soon. The mini-mes are ill today so I am making chicken soup for dinner.
Iron Man 3 stuff!
Er…the post title might be actually be a spoiler…Anyway -
This is a pic of Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. In a very cute suit. Probably while filming in Cary. Note the sandals. This was obviously filmed on the only warm day North Carolina has had this summer. So will they CGI the Heels-of-Towering-Heights on later?
Oh yeah, the pics floating around are not of the Iron Patriot suit. They are apparently the new paint job on War Machine.
The previous sentence is not written in code.
I only put this pic of RDJ and Paltrow up to illustrate just how cold it has been this summer. Robert Downey Jr is wearing a jacket. Because, yes it is still that cold here. I would make ‘year without a summer’ jokes but it has stopped being funny. Look at the frown on his face. Even he thinks it is too freakin’ cold.
That is it for the movie stuff this week. Back to music tomorrow.
Scooter is watching Angry Birds videos this morning. Yes, there really are Angry Birds vids and no, I haven’t a clue why. She seems to be stuck on the one with the superhero angry birds and one set to I Wanna Hold Your Hand. Somebody save me…please.
New video for “45″ from The Gaslight Anthem.
According to The Mary Sue, NASA will be having a bake sale this weekend. Seriously.
The peeps over on City of Steam have put together some game-related merchandise. You can pick up City of Steam themed (ouch, sorry) or Mechanist Games themed t-shirts, coffee cups, posters and mouse pads.
I still have an Arlis Nancy - Simple Machines CD to give away.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse have reunited to release Americana. I’ve had the vid to Oh, Suzannah floating around the blog and my facebook this week. I kinda like the ‘let’s add a hard guitar and drum edge to the tune’ sound. Before they became grade school standards, some of these tracks were protest songs and I think Americana does a good job of recapturing that feeling. You all should definitely check it out just…skip the Rolling Stone review ’cause it is crap.
Yeah, don’t even. I was over there to read the review for the awesome new Joe Bonamassa release, Driving Towards the Daylight (another crap review, btw) and read the one for Americana while I was there. No, I am not linking to either of them because I would rather have my fingernails pulled off with pliers than link to RS. Have a Joe vid instead.
Catch Joe at about 2:58 in the vid.
My Iron Man lamp is finally here!
Once I put away all the folded clothes on the top of my desk I’ll take a pic. I may use it as my ’On Vacation’ graphic this year. According to the news, I should be able to step outside and like, run into someone from Iron Man 3. Wednesday they were filming over in Cary so they could be ANYWHERE.
Well, anywhere except Lowes tomorrow since I need things from the Garden Center and don’t want to fight traffic to get there. Hey, I have priorities.
Okay, I need coffee and eventually I must conquer the laundry. I also need to start on the week in blogs since it is looking kind of huge at this point. Go, shoo. Watch the vids.
Sooo…Robert Downey, Jr is standing approximately two (2) hours away from where I am sitting at this very moment. Okay, okay – I assume he is standing. He could be sitting or running or banging on prop movie metal with a prop movie hammer. The point is…uh, I know had a point.
YES, the point is if I had a south facing window I could stare directly at the movie sets. I can’t see them of course (refers back to the two hours away statement) but that doesn’t change the fact that they are there.
Iron Man 3 is filming in Wilmington, NC well…right now. Sigh. I knew the whole “if I can’t go to Gulf Shores for vacation I don’t want to go to the beach at all” thing would backfire on me.
Huh…Kahuna popped in for lunch and according to his phone compass (I know, right – but I love him anyway) our big wall-o-windows faces SE so I actually can stand in the sunroom and look SOUTH to Wilmington!
Hey RDJ, I am watching you!
Er…that came out way more creepy and stalker-y than I intended. Great…now if I ever accidently run into him at the market while on an emergency goldfish cracker run I’ll feel all awkward and weird. Not awkward enough to let him have the last bag of goldfish, but still…weird.
I wish we had a little more info on the villain or villains. I am cool with pretty much anyone except the Living Armor ’cause that storyline creeps me out. I also wish Marvel would release more pics and such but they like to relay info on their movies a drop at a time.
Okay, two mornings in a row of being up way before the sun is my limit. I’m taking the day off to play Skyrim…or watch Captain America on my laptop…or do laundry. Whatever.
