Connor over at WorshipCity made this post and I thought I would join in on the fun. I have two screens at work so here is what is on both of them.

The Two things I miss most when I’m at work. My Wife and Krypton.

Smallville Season 8 Premiere Tonight!

Posted in Odyssey, season 8, Smallville, Superman on September 18, 2008 by superman1224


“Odyssey” marks the first episode of the new season of Smallville. Time has flown by so quickly. The premiere has snuck up on me this year. I have a small confession to make though. I’ve been very cautious about getting to hyped up about this new season. There are a lot of changes to start off this season. Some good and some…well I suppose only time will tell. The two biggest question marks that stand over the show casting a very large shadow on my excitement, are the absence of Lex Luthor, and the introduction of Doomsday. By not having one and adding the other Smallville has been pretty much turned upside down. I’m hopeful though. I’ve seen some clips from the premiere and the way the new season has been shot it makes the show look larger.  Much like Heroes, in that “Movie on TV” quality. Another redeeming factor to this new season is depicted in one of the most epic shots of the series. I’m of course talking about the photo in this post. Clark and Lois working across from one another at the Daily Planet. The only thing that could top that, is seeing Clark fly.

The new season premieres tonight on the CW at 8 PM. Also be sure to check out Starkville’s House of El for the the best podcast on the planet. Seriously….these guys are great!

Fan Film

Posted in Batman, Comics, Fan Film, Robin, Superman, The Joker, YouTube on August 4, 2008 by superman1224

There is a lot of crap out there in Youtube land. It seems as though any nut with a video camera is trying to make something to get their 15 seconds of internet fame. One genera in particular that falls victim to joe video camera, is anything related to comic book characters. There are countless fake trailers put together from numerous existing clips, kids running around in cheesy costumes and bad makeup making their own versions of their own films, and don’t get me started on the music videos. Anyway, in the bit of all the mediocrity there are some real gems out there. Here are the best that I have found.The last one does an excellent job of reenacting parts of “The Killing Joke”

Batman Dead End:

Grayson:

World’s Finest:

Batman Legends:

Batman Arkham Asylum:

The Joker:

Super-Hero Hats

Posted in Captain America, Hats, New Era, Superman, THe Flash on June 10, 2008 by superman1224

I love hats. I have a ton. One thing that bugs me though is that all the Superman hats out there are really weird. They never fit right. I finally found a really sweet one that actually looks right on my head and what happens……my dog eats it! Awesome! So looking at this handsome head piece, I’m still a little bummed because $38 bucks is a lot to pay for some superhero headgear. Even though it is made by New Era and it’s fitted! Nevertheless, Superman isn’t the only super-hero featured on these new Custom hats. The Flash and Captain America are also getting their own noggin cover. You can check them out here, but act fast these babies are a limited edition and I am sure they will “fly” off the shelves…..see what I did there?

How To Fly

Posted in Fly, Instructions, Superman on May 29, 2008 by superman1224

I saw this yesterday and it was too good not to post. One of my friends thought this was me. I must confess, I’ve thought about it. In case you can’t read what it says:

Remember:

1) Straight Legs

2) Flap Arms

3) Pray

4) Cape

5) Pants Outside Trousers

Bizarro AM Not Baseball

Posted in Baseball, Bizarro, Detroit, MLB, New York, Superman, Tigers, Yankees on May 22, 2008 by superman1224

Never in my life have I been more delighted and saddened at the same time. I will say this, the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated definitely sums up this crazy 08 baseball season. There is no better examples of this Bizarro season than the New York Yankees, and the Detroit Tigers. Of course they just happen to be my two favorite teams (go figure). The Tigers and the Yankees are the top two highest paid lines ups in all of basebal l, but that’s not the only thing they have in common. They are both in last place in their divisions. All hope is not lost. As I remember correctly, the Yankees were all but dead last year before the All-Star break, only to make a mad run to the post season. As for the Tigers, well you can’t get spoiled faster in Detroit. There is no fickler fan than a Detroit fan. They’re the first to jump ship at the first sign of trouble. The Wings are in the Stanley Cup Finals, the Pistons are in the Eastern Conference Finals, but all people can do is complain about the Tigers.

I’m making my first trip to Yankee Stadium This Sat, so here is hoping that the Yanks can do the same to Seattle that the Tigers did. Let’s also hope that Jeter’s hand is ok to play for me too!
