"The wild boys are calling
On their way back from the fire
In august moon's surrender to
A dust cloud on the rise
Wild boys fallen far from glory
Reckless and so hungered
On the razors edge you trail
Because there's murder by the roadside
In a sore afraid new world
They tried to break us,
Looks like they'll try again
Wild boys never lose it
Wild boys never chose this way
Wild boys never close your eyes
Wild boys always shine"
-Wild boys by Duran Duran
Thought I'd squeeze one last post in for this month, and what a month it's been huh?
This month of August has been very crazy! Hurricane Irene, my 30th birthday, The Government almost defaulting in their loans, Beyonce getting knocked up, turning 30, the major earthquake on the East Coast, the violent riots in Britain, did I mention I turned 30?, and lots of other crazy shit all occurred during this month alone. Oh, and Ed O' Neil(Al Bundy) got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. See not all bad I guess.
Here's the link to a funny video I recently saw over at Bleedingcool.com. This video is made as a tongue-in-cheek response to all those comic book fans who are disshartened over the whole DCU reboot thing. It's actually not that bad, and as for the the attitude of the girl in the made up video, that's extactly the type of reaction I'd get from my wife if I tried to explain the whole thing. Love how the chick asks "What about Batman?" "Oh he's staying the same." See, women just love Batman!
Anyway, here's the link:
Now bear in mind, today is the actual, official day that Flashpoint#5 and the new Justice League#1 ship. Of course that means that there's already spoilers/people who've already read the damn thing, so how did they do?
The whole Flashpoint event is revealed to be all Barry Allen(The Flash)'s fault. What!?
It seems in a genuine moment of weakness, he attempted to go back in time to keep his mother from being killed by Prof. Zoom, the reverse flash. He uses the Speed Force and his trusty Time Treadmill to do this, but messes up when he uses the full power of the Speed Force to go back in time. This causes time to go haywire, and thus, Barry inadvertently created the FP world, thus Barry, not Zoom was the real villain of the story. Crazy I know. And if you don't believe me, chech this out:
In the end Barry attempts to fix the world one more time, but finds out the universe was split into 3. Huh? He merges the 3 as per the advice of a mysterious cloaked woman, and that's how we have the new DCU. Yeah, that's what basically happened. I'm glad I didn't buy any of the issues though.
The only nice thing I read to have happened at the end, was when Barry gives Batman a letter from his father from the FP world. It basically says that he'll always love him, and this makes Batman cry. Awwwww.
Yeah I know, "but he's dead." I guess reboots really freshen up a guy.
So there, if you didn't already know, now you know.
And that's me, I'm outta' here.......
