Weekend Reading: The Damned, Apes, Simpsons and Tex Avery

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Reviews, Television, Independent,

The Sixth GunHurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, power outages. It's been a wild couple of climate change-enhanced weeks. Let's play catch-up across the internets:

Cullen Bunn is having a career year and let’s hope it’s the first of many. The creator of The Sixth Gun got his Oni Press series, The Damned, picked up by Showtime for a series. He’s already gotten The Sixth Gun optioned to SyFy for a series. If they both make it to air, Bunn will have two more shows on the air than DC Comics.

Apes: Rich Handley reviews the fourth issue of Darryl Gregory and Carlos Magno’s Planet Of The Apes, from Boom! “BOOM!’s Apes run stands on a pinnacle, one sure to end badly for humanity.” But all good for readers and fans.

Republicans: My pal Doug Molitor from Funny Or Die looks at 12 Republican super-heroes. My favorite? The Human Torturer!

Jack: Man, that’s a lot of nice Jack Davis work that Michael Sporn posted. I really love those western covers, too.

Kelly Osbourne Slams Kate Middleton

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News,

Kelly Osbourne on The Tonight ShowE!'s fashion police correspondant Kelly Osbourne has criticized the newly-crowned Duchess of Cambridge on her knack for recycling fashions.

"In England they are like look how thrifty she's [Kate Middleton] being, showing the British public that the Royals are in a recession as well. Only in this country they call it a faux pas," Osbourne said on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Osbourne spoke in regards to the dress Kate wore to Zara Phillips' royal wedding this month, which she had previously worn in 2006.

"Well I'm sorry but if I had that job I would only wear it once. If I am going to be the future bloody Queen of England I'm going to wear that dress once because I'm giving up the rest of my life, all of my privacy, at least I can get a new dress every day."

Perhaps this is why Kelly is not the future Queen of England! I am personally all about being thrifty and opting to reuse and/or restyle clothing that I like -- why can't Kate? Not that I'm a huge fan of the future queen's style, but recycling clothes over lavishly spending copious amounts of money on new ones is a plus in my book!

Google in talks to buy Hulu

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Google, Home Entertainment, Internet,

Google Hulu

Google is now in preliminary talks to buy Hulu, the Internet video powerhouse that allows you to watch ad-supported television and movies, according to the LA Times. This is in addition to other companies like Microsoft and Yahoo, who've also met with Hulu about a potential acquisition. Interestingly enough, Google has been hard at work on finding a way to get the content that you typically find on Hulu over to YouTube to make the video sharing site a bigger competitor in the media space (not to mention a bigger money-maker as well.) The rights that Hulu has to current season television shows is obviously a valuable asset, and they've got over 600 advertisers as well. In fact, this year Hulu expects to earn over $500 million in ad revenue. The point here isn't to buy Hulu's technology--it's all about the content deals. The big question, though, is how long before those deals expire, and what happens then? This will be an interesting one to watch.

The singer and the Maroon 5 frontman are set to unveil the track, "Moves Like Jagger," on talent show The Voice - in which they are both judges - on Tuesday. Adam explained it was "great" working with the 30-year-old beauty, and he admitted he's looking forward to debuting the song.

Adam recently admitted the pair - who sit alongside Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton on the TV show's panel - row "like brother and sister" on the show: "They fabricate a lot of that - a lot of that's reality television fodder. She's fine, we bicker like brother and sister."

Jeff Conaway Dead at 60

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Movies, Television, Drugs, Obituaries,

Jeff Conaway

Jeff Conaway, 60, died Friday after being taken off of life support. The actor, whose credits include the movie Grease, was in a coma for most of the month.

Older generations remember him as the funny, cocky Bobby Wheeler on Taxi. More recently he appeared on the first and second seasons of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew, where he was shockingly incoherent and physically weak. But he’s probably best remembered for being Kenickie, main sidekick to John Travolta’s Danny Zukco in Grease.

Travolta released a statement shortly after Conaway’s death was made official: "Jeff Conaway was a wonderful and decent man, and we will miss him. My heartfelt thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this very difficult time."
