Pop Culture Roundup April 13, 2006

New Line Cinema has a Captain Marvel/Shazam film in the works with Peter Segal ("Anger Management," "50 First Dates") set to direct, Ain't It Cool reports.

-------------------------

NPR has a story about cult pin-up Bettie Page.

-------------------------

The entire Beatles catalog is being remastered (about time), Billboard reports. And that's part of the reason Fabs tunes haven't been offered yet for digital download.

Neil Aspinall, a former Beatles road manager and managing director of Apple Corps, was a witness in the company's trademark lawsuit against Apple Computer. He said that the company was digitally remastering the entire Beatles catalog, which would pave the way for selling the songs online.

"I think it would be wrong to offer downloads of the old masters when I am making new masters," he said in a written statement submitted to the High Court in London earlier this month.

"It would be better to wait and try to do them both simultaneously so that you then get the publicity of the new masters and the downloading, rather than just doing it ad hoc."

"Lost" clues season 2, episode 19: "S.O.S."

Official ABC recap:

S.O.S.
Air Date: 04/12/2006
When Bernard attempts to recruit people to build an SOS sign on the beach, Rose uncharacteristically defies him, telling him that he shouldn't give everyone false hope.

FLASHBACKS reveal the source of her hesitation, as we highlight Rose and Bernard's love story from the day they met to the day he proposed. When Bernard takes a knee, Rose confesses that she is sick and has less than a year to live. But it doesn't deter Bernard -- he loves this woman and wants to marry her, regardless.

We follow their hopeful love affair through to their honeymoon in Australia to learn that it was, in actuality, a ploy by Bernard to get Rose to see a faith healer in an effort to cure her terminal cancer. Rose clearly isn't a believer, but goes along with it to satisfy Bernard. And though the healer tells her that he cannot help her, Rose decides to let Bernard think that he did. Her hope may be gone, but she is going to preserve his.

On the island, Rose finally comes clean and admits to Bernard that she was lying to him. She confides that after the crash, she began to feel better and that she suspects it was the island that fixed her. Bernard has a difficult time believing this and maintains that it was Isaac who did the healing. But Rose is insistent. And in the final flashback we find out that her conviction lies in the fact that she saw John Locke, on his feet on the island, in a wheelchair at the airport.

Bernard realizes that Rose doesn't want to be rescued because she thinks she might get sick again. And in an act of faith and love, Bernard vows to stop work on the SOS and tells her that they will never leave the island.

Back in the hatch, Locke attempts to draw the map he saw on the blast door from memory. But his commitment is clearly waning and he leaves the hatch in frustration. It's not until Rose convinces him to maintain faith, that Locke returns with a sense of renewed purpose and continues drawing.

Meanwhile, Jack and Kate go out on a mission to attempt to trade Henry for Walt. While they wait for Mr. Friendly to make an appearance, Michael stumbles out of the jungle and collapses at their feet.


Observations/speculation:

* The healer tells Rose there are places on the earth with power forces. He equates them with magnetism or "something else." He harnesses these forces to help others. The island, obviously, is such a place in spades.

* Do the Others want Walt because he can harness the forces of the Island? It seems likely, given Walt's psychic powers. Henry tells Jack that the Others will "never" give up Walt.

* More on the Uluru/Ayer's Rock, Isaac the psychic's real-life Australian hangout:

Ayers Rock is a large magnetic mound large not unlike Silbury Hill in England. It is located on a major planetary grid point much like the Great Pyramid in Egypt.

...The Aborigines believe that there it is hollow below ground, and that there is an energy source that they call 'Tjukurpa' the dream time. The term Tjukurpa is also used to refer to the record of all activities of a particular ancestral being from the very beginning of his or her travels to their end. Anangu know that the area around Ayers Rock (Mount Uluru) is inhabited by dozens of ancestral 'beings' whose activities are recorded at many other sites. At each site, the events that took place can be recounted, whether those events were of significance or whether the ancestral being just rested at a certain place before going on.




* The healer's reaction, when he tries to help Rose, is similar to that of the psychic Claire was seeing--they guy who gave her the ticket for the Oceanic flight and seemingly knew her fate.

* We learn Rose is aware of Lock's recovery from paralysis--apparently the only of his fellow survivors to realize he once used a wheelchair.



* The unfinished S.O.S. sign on the beach now looks like an unsmiley face. Like one you get when your computer goes belly up.



* Is Rosseau's doll trap meant to help get her daughter back?

* Eko and Charlie ARE building a church.

* Why does Michael come stumbling down to Jack and Kate on the point of collapse. Is it merely coincidence? Was he released by the Others? Or did he see the light from their fire from afar and run for miles to reach it? Or is he working with the Others?

* Henry is obviously playing mind games with Locke and the rest re: what the numbers and the Hatch are all about.

Fred Hembeck takes five.

--------------------------

Anarchists are protesting "V for Vendetta":

To challenge the film's liberal politics, our street theater will feature a two-faced Clinton-Bush under the control of the ruling class and corporate power. The anarchist V will chase off these scoundrels and speak to the notion of a society without capitalism and the state.

More "Wonder Woman" casting rumors: "Days of Our Lives" star Nadia Bjorlin may be in the running.

Toybiz has finally officially announced it's "exclusive"-to-Wal-Mart Marvel Legends action figures wave:

“Toy Biz continues to showcase the greatest legends of the Marvel Universe by providing the expert sculpting and articulation that fans have come to expect,” said Patricia Rinaldi, Director of Marketing. “We are pleased to partner with Wal-Mart to make this exclusive assortment available to our fans this May.”

Pop Culture Roundup April 11, 2006

Most of artist John Byrne's observations on life and comics strike me as wrongheaded or, at least, willfully cantankerous. This time, however, he hits it right on the head.

---------------------------

New Beatles music will likely appear in a Fabs-approved theatrical production featuring the band's songs, the Daily Telegraph reports.

Neil Aspinall, the head of Apple Corps, the Beatles' record label, said "[the show]involves the creation, by the re-mixing and re-mastering of the Beatles' recorded performances, of completely new music, which will be featured in the show, and which should lead to the release of the show album."

...Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, the surviving members of the group, are helping to shape the production, but will not appear on stage.

Sir George Martin, the producer of the Beatles' records, is overseeing the music.

...The producers will have access to unreleased archival material, including 200 hours of recorded conversations between the Beatles in the recording studio.

the churning gullet of an adversary unlike any he’s faced before. In an

Renowned horror and western writer Joe R. Lansdale reunites with his Jonah Hex
collaborator, artist Timothy Truman, to tell the grittiest, roughest, downright
meanest Conan story ever seen in comics.

This five-part series begins in the wretched wastes of Stygia, a burning,
grinding stretch of desert so desolate the only thing more unforgiving are its
inhabitants. There, Conan comes to the aid of an old ally, uncovers a scheme to
acquire untold-of wealth, and punishes his foolish enemies most cruelly. Yet
when his treasure hunt reveals an alluring spirit with long unsatisfied needs,
the Cimmerian knows a gentler touch is required to win the day.

Teaming the wild, scathing wit of Lansdale with the unflinching vision of
Truman, Conan and the Songs of the Dead is an unprecedented take on the grand
hero of sword-and-sorcery--pushing one of the most brutal heroes of literature
to new extremes!

On sale September 13, HC, 56pg, FC, 8 3/8" x 11", $12.95


Published in 1943 and long unavailable, Dark Horse Books is proud to present
this landmark book from the author of such beloved tales as Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, and Matilda. Digitally restored,
this remarkable presentation of Dahl’s classic story, lavishly illustrated by
the artists of the Walt Disney Studios, will delight readers of all ages!

The Gremlins is the story of Gus, a British World War II fighter pilot, who
during the Battle of Britain turned to look out on the wing of his plane only to
see an amazing sight: a little man, no more than six inches tall with horns
growing from his head, drilling a hole in the plane’s wing. Gus was the first
man to ever see a Gremlin, and what happened after that would change the war,
and the world, forever.

Bought by Walt Disney to be produced as an animated motion picture (and
considered to be the first story featuring the mythical airplane-sabotaging
creatures known as Gremlins), the project was ultimately shelved and is
reprinted here for the first time in over sixty years.

* The book was first published in 1943 and has been unavailable since that
time.
* Dark Horse Deluxe is producing a line of toys to tie in with the project,
the first time Gremlins toys have been made available in decades!

On sale August 16, SC, 208pg, b&w, 5" x 7", $10.95


Private detective Reiji Akiba has a theory about those awkward moments and weird
coincidences we all encounter in life. They are actually encounters with the
dead--their way of sending us a message. But you may not want to open such
strange mail from beyond--not unless you can see the ghostly attachment, like
Akiba can. And not unless you carry a gun that can kill what isn’t alive, like
Akiba’s aptly named Kagutsuchi, “the tool between God and earth” . . .
digging a divine grave to lay to rest the evil dead.

Volume 1 of Mail opens with a model’s photo shoot at what was a lovely
riverside. But someone’s thrown their trash away here: human bones. When the
negatives in the darkroom reveal hidden horror, it’s time for the magazine to
hire Akiba. The answers lie in the secret basement of a shunned house . . . but
they don’t lie peacefully!

* Mail was recently made into a live-action Japanese horror movie starring
Chiaki Kuriyama--“Go-Go Yubari” from Kill Bill.

STATIONERY AND JOURNAL SETS

Dark Horse continues its line of stationery sets and journals from today’s top
indie artists. This month we bring you Evan Harris and Everett Peck.

On sale July 12, Evan Harris’ Birds of a Letter Stationery Set, 8 letter
sheets, 6 envelopes, 5 3/4" x 8 3/4", $4.99

Born in the briars and backwoods thistles of Medford, Oregon, Evan Benjamin
Harris grew up with little knowledge of the bourgeois big city fine arts. So, he
dove into the recesses of his own imagination and embraced the fables and
folklore that fascinated him. With little to do but draw, he did exactly that.
Now older, things haven’t changed much. The stories he created as a child are
still present in his paintings. With diligence and hard work, Evan’s crude
stick figures became the more clearly defined images you see today. With no
formal art training, he creates on his own terms.

On sale July 12, Everett Peck: It’s Not My Fault Journal, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2",
spiral bound journal, 128 pages, $9.95

On sale July 12, Everett Peck’s I Think I Love You Stationery Set, 8 letter
sheets, 6 envelopes, 5 3/4" x 8 3/4", $4.99

We are happy to add legendary whacko and graphic anarchist Everett Peck to our
lineup of stationery and journal artists. Perhaps best known for his Duckman
series, Mr. Peck he is also a frequent contributor to magazines like Playboy and
Rolling Stone, to name just a couple. He is currently developing a new animated
series for Cartoon Network and a graphic novel for Tokyopop.

Drawing on both published and personal work, we have gathered together some of
the best and most colorful pieces for this madcap modern masterpiece.

TRIGUN MAXIMUM VOLUME 10 TPB
YASUHIRO NIGHTOW (W/A)
On sale August 2, SC, 240pg, b&w, 5" x 7", $9.95


Since the day Vash spotted his decimated soul in the middle of the desert,
Nicholas Wolfwood has become a favorite of fans. A man of the cloth with a
tortured soul and a past full of bullets, the protector of our story’s hero,
Wolfwood might just be reaching the end of his pew.

Ironically, the past has come back to attack him. And by that we mean Livio, the
young man Nicholas once befriended. Livio is more than a match for Wolfwood,
having been trained by the same master, Chapel. And now the master and both
disciples meet in a deadly face-off, and only one man will survive.

But readers are in for more than just one surprise in this climactic volume of
Trigun.

* Presented in a fashion directly approved by Nightow himself, Trigun Maximum
is so authentic that . . . well, it can hardly be more so. Includes facetious
inner cover art and Nightow’s hilarious back page commentary, as always.
