(Highlight below if you want them. That way I am guiltless.)
It's 'Rise of the Guardians.'
Tracks are as follow:
Track 16: Memorial
Track 17: Guardians Regroup
Track 25: Sandman Returns
I feel reasonably comfortable saying Sandman is gonna die.
And then return! (Huzzah)
There's also the track 'Jack Betrays'
And 'Jack's Memories.'
Which if you've seen the interview's and featurette on Apple's trailers, pulls in the Tooth Fairy's plot purpose.
I know how tempting it is to hint and tease things about your own story, I really do.
And I know I'm gonna see this movie.
But please, stop yourselves.

Jumping Cholla is a cactus that employs the defense mechanism of breaking off it's branches AS SOON AS YOU TOUCH THEM.
It takes less then a breath of wind to knock them off.
And they have two types of spines.
The big ones are actually way easier to deal with.
But there are also these little tiny hair ones that are usually less then 2cm long (so you can't even pull them out really.)
They're the ones that'll make your life hell.

Okay. I've had a few questions.
"Two Steps from Hell" is a music making group that puts together thirty second to two minute long stock music for use in movie trailers and promotional stuff.
I think they got their big break when their track "Moving Mountains" was used by one of the "Twilight" trailers.
Anyways, now, and most deservedly so, their work is available from iTunes.
"Diabolic Clockwork" is a track they recollected for an iTunes release with a Halloween album.
And at 3 o'clock in the morning, it is creepy as hell.
...so is Track 1 "Possessed Gramophone."

Except that they have siestas.
Which means, in the summer, in the middle of the day, NO ONE IS OUT.
Locals don't start venturing out until 2-3, when they get light tapas meals.
And then dinner doesn't formally start until 9ish.
It was pretty damn pleasant.
The bits I was awake for.

And driving in San Diego sucks.
Everything else about the con was great though!
Big thanks to everyone who swung by the Oni Press booth!
We're sooo close to 25k and the swanky new hardcover edition.
Show your love and spread the word!

(See previous post.)
This is the first time I've seen this argument actually make sense.
I know they stress "revenge is never the answer" in kids movies, but that never seemed very convincing. By the time the main character realized it, the antagonist was already on the ropes, or had been punished some other way. So walking away was easy.
And it shouldn't be.

I don't want to get dinged on anybody's Marvel filters for having an opinion about this.
And to be fair, DC is just as guilty.
(I'm pretty sure I know exactly where I stand with both of them anyways, so meh.)
I'm tired of it.
And they're already pimping out the next big crisis for October, which leaves me feeling really exhausted.
We need a breather between world threatening events!
If the world's gonna end every other day, it kinda loses its "umpf," you know?
And the world doesn't have to be threatened in a big way even (like it always seems to be.)
Tiny, taut stories can be just as riveting.
And before anyone goes on thinking I'm soured on the WHOLE AvsX thing, I want to clarify that I at least find Scott's feelings towards the Avengers compelling.
He really does come off as run down and cornered by them and I can't really blame him for that.
(I can blame him for the nifty little god complex he's developing... but considering that he's been under just about everybody else's boot, it's not all that unreasonable.)
So in that regard this is at least better than Civil War, wherein the need for conflict felt completely unwarranted.
(Did anyone buy Stark's reasoning?
Not that a viable argument couldn't be made, just saying HIS couldn't hold water.)
Speaking of pimping.
Have you seen Kelly Thompson's Kickstarter for her YA novel "The Girl Who Would Be King."
I think it's too late to have it backed in 24 hours, but it can still come damn close!
Let's make this SUPER SUCCESSFUL!
