was a good week for letters, starting with the short and sweet...
I have met Jeff Johnson (artist on Way of the Rat);
he's an awesome guy.
the other kids scoffed when I applied for the Famous Artists'
School of Cartooning.
I was overjoyed to see that someone had started reviewing
ALIAS, I was a little surprised by some of Miss Sparling's
positive comments about the infamous post-Superbowl Phase
a copy of the e-mail I wrote to ABC (they did not reply) right
after the original airing of that episode (I also asked a
Disney writer friend to forward a copy directly to the ALIAS
creative team; they not surprisingly did not answer either):
me preface these comments with the fact that ALIAS is still
a good show that I will continue to watch (for now). And certainly
I'm not one to complain too much about Ms. Garner modeling
lingerie or showcasing a bikini to one of my favorite 'Cars'
being said, the show, I think, has lost much, and one suspects
the creators are desperate for viewers.
of that desperation, consider the lingerie and bikini shots.
Once upon a time Sydney used to wear interesting, diverse
outfits for disguises. They were equally, if not more, sexy.
Part of the fun was seeing how Sydney would infiltrate the
bad guys, then how she would carry out her SD-6 mission AND
her CIA countermission.
of missions, gone are the wonderful SD-6 mission briefings
with Marshall running off at the mouth and Sloane oozing cool
creepiness. Say goodbye to the classic, multilayered Sloane
- Sydney exchanges. The previews for next week hinted at such
deep lines as 'I'm going to kill you.'
never recovered from Maddie and David finally getting together.
Right now, I fear that ALIAS will suffer a similar fate..."
ALIAS has managed to recover somewhat and deliver some solid
episodes. Let's hope that trend continues, and that Miss Sparling
keeps up the good work.
up. Just shut up. You had me at "...Ms. Garner modeling
To Leap Tall Buildings At A Damage Level of 4...
checked out your Hero Clix write-up (good stuff!) I have a
couple of questions, though, pertaining to one of the pictures
you have in your write-up: You have a picture of an entire
street scene (buildings and all) with a Sentinel walking down
create that city environment? Is that set sold anywhere? Please
let me know. It looked really good! Thanks!
city environment was part of WizKids' booth at the San Diego
Comic-Con, one of the tournament tables they had set up.
recently I've heard, however, that they do sell kits to create
those buildings, but as part of MechWarrior. I've passed your
question along to WizKids, and await an answer, because dang,
now I want one.
anybody else know?
He's On X.
recently browsing through your website and saw the Bryan Singer/painkiller
think Mr. Singer has a drug problem? There were reports that
on several days during the shooting of X2 that Singer was
reportedly so unhappy directing the movie that he left the
set after yelling action! It's also been reported that Halle
Berry cannot stand Singer and does not want to work with him
ever again, even telling him to "kiss (her) black a**."
you make of all of this? I would love to hear your comments.
I'm not really qualified to judge. The incident in question
seems to have faded from the gossip pages, and wasn't followed
by any other reports of erratic behavior or hard feelings
on the set, so I'm going with this:
day, Halle Berry and Bryan Singer got into a fight on the
set. It happens, especially when two talented people are trying
to create something they can both be happy with.
probably made up afterward, but nobody wants to print that
sort of thing.
I met Bryan Singer he was nothing but gracious, as was his
producing partner, Tom DeSanto.
quite honestly, I would consider it an honor to smooch that
on that note...send us more mail, whether it be about Halle
Berry's charms or not. And/or check out our
new improved forum!
