There is a very creep PopTart commercial where a cartoon lizard invites a anthropomorphic girl PopTart into the bus of her favorite rock band. When she climbs to the top he reveals the bus is a toast and she falls to her death into the toast. The lizard says, “Groupies are so easy.”

I suppose the people at Kellogg think the victimization of women is funny.

John Carter

I rewatching “John Carter”, Disney’s 2012 movie based on Edgar Rice Burroughs Barsoom novels. I don’t understand why the movie didn’t do very well - I thought it was terrific. But word has it that Disney’s CEO got fired because if it’s failure.

I thought it was a fun action movie. The art design was beautiful; the special effects were very well done; and I thought the cast was great including Willem Defoe as Tars Tarkas, Ciarán Hinds as Tardos Mors, and especially Lynn Collins as Dejah Thoris, Princess of Mars. If you watch Collin in “John Carter” just imagine her as Wonder Woman - she would be terrific.

But I also have to say I thought Taylor Kitsch as the title character was terrific as well. He grew from the reluctant soldier to the hero. And I loved the sequences where he learned to fly. It was like watching a Superman movie set in an exotic planet.

If you’ve never seen it I highly recommend checking it out. 5 out of 5 on the Frank-o-Meter

Lori Lemaris was introduced in Superman (Vol 1) #129, May 1959 in the third story, “The Girl in Superman’s Past!” It tells a story of Clark Kent’s years in college where he meets a beautiful but mysterious fellow student - Lori. She need a wheel chair to move about but that doesn’t deter Clark he eventually asks her to marry him - BUT she declined. You see, she is in reality a mermaid from Atlantis.

Cover Up or Cover Girl?

The issue of people and corporations protecting abusers instead of the abused is an interesting reflection on our society. I find it especially sad when the victim speaks in defense of her attacker as was the case of the wife of Ray Rice. Was she so wrapped up in the cycle of violence that she could not see him for what he was? Or did she she a meal ticket disappear?

Then of course there is the NFL that pretends they did not know of the video and fires Rice the minute its proven they did. It’s should be no surprise that sports based on violence and built on the debilitating concussions of its players doesn’t care about the health of their wives and partners either.

And now Cover Girl, a company that specifically markets to women, seems to forget that the NFL and the Ravens are no friends of women.

(This is a meme based on a Cover Girl ad promoting the Ravens.)

You are ugly but you are beautiful! And you fight like a Thark!

I’d rather take my chances out there than be stuck in here with assholes like you!
What stupid characters say and lazy authors write to quickly eliminate characters in TV horror shows - in this case Dutch Velders, internet hacker on The Strain (FX’s vampire horror series), referring to the vampires with throat snakes (out there) and the good guy (in here).

I’ve commented of the titles used by the SyFy channel for their shows.  They seem to favor one word titles that don’t really help explain what the shows are about. 

Continuum?
Defiance?
Dominion?
Haven?

And they announced a new series - Ascension. It’s one word and for the title it haven’t a clue what it’s about.
