Out of the Blue

It's a day of sports mourning for me, as the Giants have cut Ahmad Bradshaw, one of my very favorite players, and as important as any player in each of the team's two recent championships. The offseason can be rough on NFL players too. Poop. :(

Anyway, we're battening down the hatches here in the BlueTower, as a nor'easter is coming, and could be quite nasty, depending on the track it takes. Time to check the hot cocoa supply.

Thanks for the link, it looks fucking incredible! What the hell is Disney XD? I don't get that, I think... And it doesn't seem like there's a season version available on DVD yet... grrrr...

But I see they're trying to save it? Has it been cancelled or something?

Edit : From wikipedia "Amid rumors of cancellation, on January 14, 2013 producer Edward Kitsis countered the rumor by stating: "I don't know what the future [of Tron: Uprising] is now. I know at the present, I can say we need more viewers."

Well, DUH you need more viewers. Who the fuck watches Disney XD? Put this shit on a regular network, idiot.

And that's the story of the first banner ad I clicked in nearly a decade.

Was that here?

Yeah, it wasn't direct from the ad, I had to go through their site first. I don't have any evidence to suspect the executable was malware or something. Could've just been a game launcher or hub, I was naively hoping for some registration free in browser Family Feud

As long as they keep the quality up and differentiate them, it should be okay?

I hope so. I'm actually looking forward to seeing an earlier Han Solo or Yoda. And an episode 7 is the stuff of childhood dreams. I never thought we'd get that.

Now if Disney can just iron out an unaltered version of the Original Trilogy (I hear there's issues with Fox having distribution rights for Episode 4, not to mention the whole "we swear to god we destroyed the original negatives" bullshit), I'll be ready to bury the hatchet with SW.

I agree. I fear how much they'll mass market it into the ground (IE a new SW movie every 9 months), but in the meantime, I'm looking forward to it.

We've had multiple Marvel movies from Disney in a year, and they've mostly been quality. As long as they keep the quality up and differentiate them, it should be okay? I think that's what made so many hero movies work: each hero is in such a different situation and has such a different personality than the other: Cap, Thor, Iron Man, etc.

I'm actually pretty worried about the Giants' O line and running game next year. Without a good ground game, opposition defenses are going to focus even more on Eli and he had no protection the second half of this season. He got sacked so often, he looked punch drunk a couple of times at the end of games.

Are you kidding me? Eli was only sacked 19 times in 2012 - which ranks him at #34 out of 49 QBs. Rodgers - #1 on the sack list - was sacked 51. 51 times!!! An average of over 4 sacks a game! That's dealing with more sacks than a medieval grain merchant! That's why you see me bitch so long and loud about the Green Bay O-line. If we had a good O-line we'd be unstoppable!

The sentence in bold made me LOL.

And yeah, Eli wasn't battered hard early in the season, but the second half it seemed like he took a pasting. No way Rodgers should have to deal with that kind of thing either - 51 sacks is enough to fill a warehouse.

Walt Disney Co. chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced the existence of spin-off plans yesterday as part of the company’s quarterly earnings report. He said the screenwriters working of the stand-alone films are Simon Kinberg (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Sherlock Holmes) and Lawrence Kasdan (screenwriter of The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark and the filmmaker behind The Big Chill.)
The pair are also involved in the drafting of the new trilogy, with Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3) penning the first of the series, which J. J. Abrams has agreed to direct. That film is scheduled to hit theaters in 2015.

I Knew Disney was going to milk it but holy crap they are not wasting any time. The spinoffs are a Boba Fett movie and a Han Solo movie, on top of the three planned general SW movies.
