You Don’t Tug on Superman’s Cape

This morning, I walked through the streets of Seattle through a fog.  This is not a metaphor.  A thick mist of haze settled over Seattle.  This would be expected in December, but somewhat surprising in August.  The sky is grey straight out of Necromancer like a television tuned to a dead channel.

Contract work at the Mouse continues to amaze me.  I love working with happy people.  It changes your entire day.

I’ve managed to get ahead for once with my freelance fiction writing.  I am working on a story due at the end of September.  This one is moving by quickly.  I see to have more of an affinity for supernatural horror.

I am under a number of different NDAs for various projects.  When I am able, I’ll make a couple of announcements.  I’m very pleased to be working with a couple of intellectual properties that I simply adore.  Work isn’t really work if you love it.

It was very hot this weekend.  I couldn’t work out, but I did walk around outside for a while.

I managed to see The Dark Knight Rises.  It wasn’t good as The Dark Knight.  I thought Hathaway stole the show.  The main two villains didn’t work for me.  Bane always bores me.  Talia could have been so much better as a character.  I think the addition of Catwoman diminished her screen time and the possibility for her redemption.  That said, I enjoyed watching the movie.   Comic book movies continue to improve in quality and we’re seeing a renaissance previously unimagined at a time when Ghostbusters was the best genre movie around.

The big surprise is the excitement I feel about the new Man of Steel movie.   This parody captures a lot of my feelings towards Superman.  It might be that the All-Star Superman limited series changed that for me.  I love Morrison’s Superman and I hope that one day I get a chance to write the character.  I am very excited by this movie after seeing the trailer.  Superman can be an amazing character as proven by Grant Morrison.

I need to do some research for some of these projects coming up this year.  I won’t complain as I am loving it.  I have good friends and family supporting me.  I will be very happy to have a writing room all to myself.  Thus far, I have enjoyed 2012.  I have hopes that it will continue to be an awesome year.
