Vera, what has become of you...?
Vera Lynn has hit the top of the UK album charts at age 92. Former teenagers may remember Vera Lynn's name from the Pink Floyd album, The Wall.
The RAF is kind of awesome, even when singing
I'm not entirely clear on why Lynn is having a resurgence at the moment, but the Andrews Sisters better start polishing their dance shoes.
Moster-Fightin' Puritan Solomon Kane headed for theaters
Do you like awesome things? I do.
Robert E. Howard was a prolific guy in his short life. You probably know his most famous work, Conan, thanks to the 1980's Arnie movie.
While a lot of Howard's work (Kull, Red Sonja, Thulsa Doom) is sort of cut from similar cloth, Solomon Kane is a puritan with a bible and a gun who doesn't take kindly to supernatural terrors.
While The League is often disappointed in the final products Hollywood churns out as they adapt different characters (I mean, I almost wept through the last 2/3rds of Van Helsing), you have to hope that some of these will wind up okay, just by statistical probability.
Also, Kobayashi is in this movie. Go figure.
I suspect this is going to be really bad, but... what the heck. I want to see what they do the idea.
Ever wonder what college was like for The League and JAL?
Metaphorically, it was exactly like this...

Kristen Doing Better
You probably missed it, but Jamie's soon-to-be sister-in-law (finance of The Dug) landed herself in the hospital over the weekend. She had a routine if not-minor surgery, and seems on her way to recovery.
This is good.
K and Dug are getting married in a few weeks at the end of the month (where I am performing a singing solo. They just don't know it yet).
So let's all wish K a swift recovery, so we're not wheeling her up the aisle on a dolly.
K has been around for a number of years now, and is already in the McB family by default, the wedding just making official how everyone has felt for a good long while. So, yes, we want her in top fighting form for the wedding, but we mostly just want her back to doing backflips as soon as possible.
