Been a while since I did an open call for posts, so here we go. What would you folks like me to write about?
(As always: no “I should write” requests, and no guarantees from me.)
What’s your take on Johns’ recent Legion stuff?
What did you do before you were a law student?
More alternate reality timelines:
1) The alternate universe where they cast Russell Crowe and not Scott Bakula as the captain of the retro series ST: Enterprise
2) The alternate universe where MTV decides to stick with music videos
You know, stuff like that
What’d you think of Mark Waid’s first issue of “Strange?”
Deadpool, then and now.
El Tyrano Magnifico critiques on a pressing leagal issue whilst engaging Vampiro Ultimate X in a desperate battle using all his legal and martial leverage to regain his lost belt. Ideally the venue should occur within the Canadian/Aztec court arena. Face heel turns and treachery abound. Bonus points if Flapjack and a band of orphans comment ringside.
Football: is it really a funny old game?
Geez. No particular order:
1) More Canadian Politics.
2) Heck, more politics in general – you do good work, sir.
3) Any new photoshopped mockeries?
Are there any good movies with bad scripts? Are there any bad movies with good scripts?
The Misadventures of Matter Eater Lad emphasizing his talents as he is called to defend various legion members from legal consequences of their ofttimes necessary but incriminating activities as interpreted via Bismollian law. (Trust him he’s Senator!)
You should tackle the single most controversial subject on the internet.
Roger Moore as James Bond: Was he any good?
India is going to export thorium nuclear reactors that are supposed to be safer and more cost-effective than the regular kind. Thoughts on how this could affect where we’re going with alternative energy tech?
Flapjacks Year One : The Flappening
(Or how a wide eyed, innocent MGK was introduced to the greatness that is Flapjacks)
Also? Which sports do you like, and why. From your writings I’d put safe money baseball is your favourite… can you explain why? and what about other sports?
Alternate timeline- The Avro Arrow is not cancelled.
More Tyrano Magnifico, as previously requested.
What does MGK look for in his Adolescent Reading?
I’d be a fan of a new set of Politics Magic: The Political Gathering.
Wonderful Examples: Of Bad Writing
What kind of Pie is best?
I’d like to read your thoughts on Legion of 3 Worlds. I just got the HC and wow… so not impressed.
More Tyrano Magnifico of course.
How about a TPB or comic you think people should pay more attention to?
MGK & Flapjacks discussion/reactions to George Lazenby et all while watching On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Also, now that we’ve got Anti-Venom and Daken, it looks like Marvel’s hewing back to the days of Thunderstrike and USAgent. Do you have any ideas for further character variations? What if DC did it?
I’d like to hear your thoughts on the comic market some more. Specifically, I (and many of my friends) have enjoyed the animated DCU and Marvel U shows (Spectacular Spider-Man, Teen Titans, etc.) but are pretty much never going to get into the actual comics because of the differences in tone, pacing, characterization and the sheer baggage of decades worth of continuity.
Do you think that a market like me (and my friends) is a viable one to target? With what should they do so and how?
Ever check out Sonic the Hedgehog comics?
I want your opinion on the flu shot honestly.
The real truth behind Tim Horton’s inexorable push into the United States.
I’d love to see more Magic cards of other political figures – both past and present.
More Improved Archie!
More Dr. Doom/My Little Pony mash-ups!
Baking recipes and kittens? (But not recipes that include kittens, that’s what McDonald’s is for.)
In general, which types of media are best suited for adaptations into other types of media – e.g., are books better adapted as graphic novels or films?
Why the Crab Clan are awesome.
A profile on each character from the “Book of the Dead” section of the 1980s “Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe” who has actually *stayed* dead since, with rankings on the Rex The Wonder Dog scale.
A short series on crazy, cutting edge science stuff.
More honesty in comic covers?
The Stephenie Meyer Story may be worthy of the chris bird treatment.
Sponge Bob Yea or Nay?
How would you remake old atari video games into modern classics?
How to make Americans care about non-American teams or heroes. why should I give a shit abotu Alpha Flight, anyway?
How bout something on how fanboys help or ruin comics and the
hack writers who love(loath) them?
How would thou end the tale of scrooge mc duck, since Don Rosa is retired (what about Donald’s mother, Goldie’s letter…), and since we’re at it, Hue, Dewe and Louie’s parents?
A reevaluation of PvP Online.
An analysis of the flaws of the Star Wars prequels from a storytelling perspective, and not from the standard “OMG Lucas raped my childhood” perspective.
Please more Tyrano Magnifico!
Also more posts like the Big Trouble in Little China post, and more thoughts/examples of hero being saved by the third stringer (not saved by the cavalry)like in The Crow.
I don’t know if you’d want to do an entire blogpost on this, but I am interested in your thoughts on what the best blogs are out there for Canadian politics.
Hellboy. Your opinions on the series, suggestions for improvement, one-shot ideas, anything. And I do mean anything.
Also the BRPD trades.
Since the year is drawing to a close, the best comics — superhero, horror, license, whatever — to debut in 2009.
What brilliant Pen and Paper RPG idea has been floating in your head for the last couple decades? (You know there’s one in there somewhere!)
How’d you meet your wife?
The websites in your blogroll. Why have you picked the ones you have?
“An analysis of the flaws of the Star Wars prequels from a storytelling perspective, and not from the standard “OMG Lucas raped my childhood” perspective.”
I want some serious talk about Daredevil.
Recently co creator Peter Laird sold the entire rights of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Nickolodeon for a cool 60 million, or so I read. After 25 years he wanted to do something else. Considering its status as one of the few self sustaining successes of its time. Could there/ should there be some sort of legalesse to ensure a minimun of quality control of all future similar independent creations. No one wants to see them shelved for 25 more years nor should their basic continuity be constantly rebooted every 6 months.
Top Canadian Superheroes
Every Thursday, you should pick one character from the DC Who’s Who books and hightlight them.
Maybe you should rate them, based on a scale you make up, comparing them to a wacky animal chracter.
I’d like to see you invent the Legion of Super-Heroes board game, but maybe that’s just me.
The greatest argument-bait post of all time.
The United States lost the War of 1812/bullshit, it was a draw. My preferred computer hardware rules, and your preferred computer hardware sucks. Hillary Clinton/George W. Bush/Gordon Brown/Sarah Palin/Barack “Hussein” Obama/Tony Blair is the Antichrist. Say we’ve got this airplane on a treadmill. Gun control. Derek Smart. Meow meow Henrietta Pussycat meow meow meow The Presidents of the United States of America meow Kitty? Pedophilia. Libertarianism is a crock/Ayn Rand is God. Prussian Blue. Nikolai Tesla. Let’s rmgroup *.net, *.fa and *.mod. Macedonia. Turkey. Armenia. The concept of college fraternities and
sororities sucks/no it doesn’t. You have hard the message Pink Floyd has delivered, but have you listened? My homebrew physics theories are true, dammit, and NASA must listen to me so that we can mine the lunar He3! Should you switch doors after Monty Hall opens the third door? We request that you remove the alt.religion.s#ient#logy newsgroup from your site. I will now post my top ten list of some category, but you will find my inclusions, omissions and ordering objectionable. 0.9999 equals one/the hell it does. Monty Python quotes. I know that I was taught in school not to divide by zero, but look at all the cool stuff I can do if you would just let me. Fish puns. Does anybody know what “govende” means? I think I’ve figured out a way that the Germans could have made Operation Sealion work. My preferred operating system/text editor/gaming console rules, and your preferred operating system/text editor/gaming console sucks. Certain abilities correlate with certain racial categories. Kevin Smith. Balrogs have wings/the hell they do. Here’s my theory of what was in the “Pulp Fiction” suitcase.
And to close this list, I’d like to make a gratituous comparison to Hitler and/or the Nazis.
UN-altered REPRODUCTION and DISSEMINATION of this IMPORTANT Information is ENCOURAGED, ESPECIALLY to COMPUTER BULLETIN BOARDS.
(Have I left any out?)
Louis Riel vs. Joey Smallwood: Fight!
I demand more posts requesting topic suggestions from the audience!
Okay, here’s a serious one: I never read comic books as a kid, or any other period of my life, but now I’m reading all these comic book blogs and it looks kinda like fun. I think I’d like to start reading them, but I don’t know where to begin. So any advice for someone who is interested in comic books but doesn’t have any familiarity with them?
You should write about your fantasy baseball league that you started and then ignored because you picked a crap team. The league that I won. I demand credit for this irrelevant accomplishment.
1) American politics. I’d like your take on health care reform and climate politics.
2) An essay about Usagi Yojimbo. I’d like some “hey, that’s right” moments on very good comic book series.
3) A who’s who on my favorite dorky childhood DC villain: The Calculator.
4) I second Brianna. The flu shot.
What is your zombie plan?
More Archie stuff!
Why “Zombie Apocalypse Planning” is bullshit, and needs to die in a swamp.
You should do another edited comic like Civil War. Possibly, Siege? I think that will be bad but fun.
Also, did you hate Strange #1 or what. It sucked.
I’d like to hear, if you’re willing, a bit how you’re life is affected by the fact that you write this blog. Specifically, do you think the exposure of it is a help, hindrance or makes no impact on your writing career?
I read that piece in Torontoist from the Raymi person about her blog. Hers is obviously very different from yours but I found the whole thing very interesting. Now with your blog, you mainly write very amusing things, and more often than not, discuss things that are probably considered nerdy. But you’re also a popular one
Does the fact you do this blog affect you in the ‘real world’ as such? For example, would any writing jobs you’ve applied for may have been knocked back because maybe you’re blog writing wasn’t considered serious enough, or too geeky for mainstream or whatever? Also, do you get any people off the street greeting you due to you’re writing?
