Link’n’Blog – 6.5.2020 | Simple. Truth.

Related Content from And There Came A Day



I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as fun or thought provoking as I have.

Simple truth.

You have to take time for this.

The Empire Strikes Back is 40 years old!

Wow!

In my opinion this is the best of all the Star Wars movies. Your mileage may vary… USA Today published some wonderful behind-the-scenes pictures of Mark Hamill during filming which you can see HERE

This story means so much to so many. I have no claim over it. I can only say that I know some of the players… and that God is good.

The case of one of my all time favorite movies reunited yesterday and, at a distance rewatched the 20 year old classic That Thing You Do! which is a perfect, feel good movie and an overlooked gem. You can read about their reunion from Variety HERE and you can watch the movie on Prime Video among other services.

Yes, there are many socially distant remixes, but this is a great one! Check Sting’s “reactions” to Jimmy Fallon to his “right.” Watch it HERE!

Great song! Great take for quarantine!

We need some laughs these days, and some sweet moments.

How about both? How about a video of a puppy singing a brilliantly funny (and furry?) version of I Will Survive? I dare you not to smile

See this amazing puppy HERE

The Best Sequential Art I Read Last Week: March 25 – 31, 2020

Related Content from And There Came A Day:

I am a comic book collector and happy to be one. I might say “proud” if I hadn’t, over a year ago, switched to reading digital as opposed to print comics. I feel a bit robbed of the tactile sensations of the hobby – of the turn of the page, the sneaking look to the panel a page over, the bagging and shorting and stacking and filing. Though I read my comics in a different medium than I used to, I still treat each Wednesday (comic book delivery day to specialty shops around the country) as different from the other days of the week. I subscribe and now, rather than go to the comic store to be handed the books pulled for my “Hold Slot,” I click a button on my iPad and watch them download.

Then I read them.

Rare is the week that I don’t read them all between Wednesdays and some weeks I have, well… let’s just say more comic books in my digital downloads than a grown man should. Comic book legend Will Eisner (creator of The Spirit) is one of the most influential men even to put pencil to drawing board in the pursuit of making comics. So influential was he that the industry awards (think the Oscars or the Emmys or the Grammys) are named The Eisner Awards. He called comic books “sequential art,” perhaps because he became embarrassed by his profession when he had to admit what he did for a living. This is my weekly reaction to the comics I read.

Comics I Read Last Week:

The Best Comic I Read Last Week Was Road To Empyre #1

Writer: Robbie Thompson

Artist: Mattia de lulis and Javier Rodriquez

I am a sucker for big, inter-company events.

I shouldn’t be. I’ve been burned many, many times on these sorts of things and I haven’t learned my lesson yet.

Perhaps I will… someday, but I got sucked in to Empyre with this first, introductory issue. And, frankly, I am glad I bit.

The art in both the contemporary and flashback sequences are really amazing. Both are a cut above standard fare and both set pieces are well done, well constructed and have their own flavor. While not familiar with de lulis or Rodriguez, I was more than pleasantly surprised by the work, especially the flashbacks. Really solid work.

I’ve read Thompson before, but he really is playing on a different level here, setting up plot threads that are tantalizing and engaging. They will bring me back for the main title. Additionally he made me care about characters I don’t entirely know and in which I had no prior investment. I am impressed and will be back for the first issue.

What will keep me is if the series can maintain the quality of the prelude. We’ll see. I vow not to buy books that are sub-par.

I am hopeful for Empyre.
