Two Lumps

Crap. I knew something was wrong the instant I saw the photos insted of a comic.

Since almost the beginning, I’ve followed the comic Two Lumps. It’s listed as one of my influences over at Violent Blue and I’ve grown fond of the two kitties that are the main characters. It probably wasn’t a year ago when the cat that Snooch was based on crossed the rainbow bridge. It seems that Eben recently joined him.

We’ve been through this. We put Lucy to sleep when her body began to betray her. We set Moses free when he lost control. It never gets any easier, not even when it’s someone elses. So when I finished reading the days post, I walked back into the library and cried.

Violent Blue won’t be doing a tribute or any refrences; Two Lumps has it’s own following and I don’t want to exploit a tragedy to drive traffic to my own site, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention it at all and offer my deepest sympathies to Eben’s mommy and daddy.

I see Green Lantern is getting pounded by the critics – even the comic media is ripping it apart. That’s a pity, because it’s not nearly as bad a film as they make it out to be. I stand by my statements, It’s a great GL movie, it’s a good comic film, but not a good blockbuster. I think the biggest disappointment is that for a 300 Million dollar film, we don’t realy see that money on the screen. The CGI is subpar in places, the sets aren’t that extraordinary, and there’s actually too much green screen. It ends up feeling like a direct to video movie than a summer night out at the theatre. Still, I can’t believe that writer Mark Millar called this “The worst superhero film ever”. Did he miss Batman and Robin? Perhaps he wasn’t aware of the Nick fury movie starring David Hasselhoff? Really? Green Lantern is worse thant the 1990 Captian America???

Hmmmm. I think there’s a comic strip in all of this……We’ll see what happens in Violent Blue on Monday.
