Arrow, Catching Up, and General-ness…

Hey Poppers,

I couldn’t think of a featured image, I just read what I wrote, the part down there, that you haven’t read yet, unless you skipped ahead, but I bet you didn’t, I trust you. Anyway, that picture of 3PO and R2 in a Tim Burton movie about bad dreams before Jesus’s birthday was the best I could come up with. So good luck, and enjoy, but mostly good luck. The Batman vs Superman trailer!!

Wow, I have been so busy lately I have not been able to blog, but here I am so let’s jump right in. I got Instagram, it’s okay.And I changed my name on twitter to batteryrunheart. Because my heart is literally run by a battery. No joke, I have a pacemaker, it’s one step down from an arc reactor. No big. Also I am now a registered apprentice, becoming a Parts Technician. It’s a three year program, but I have set myself up to have my ticket by next summer. And yes, apprentice like in Star Wars, again no big.

So, also I got my wife rather pregnant, so yeah. We can now move onto four person cosplays. Yes, that is where my mind immediately goes.

Also, Whovians, if you want an idea of how overwhelming it is to find out you will be a dad again, please see the below picture.

Next I got bit by a spider! And I think it may have been radioactive.

And lastly I have been working on my third and last book in the Fantom Fury trilogy. (cause the “tri” in “trilogy” means three, so my third, and therefore…. last….. book) So, there you have it my excuses for not being able to blog. (Please see radio style segway below… Remember I mentioned my books like one second ago?)

book

Yes, I met CAITY LOTZ!!!!! at EEK fest. She was super nice and she is so gorgeous. It was awesome to be face to face with Miss Sara Lance. And yes, that is a copy of my first book signed by her. It was so cool. Also I met someone else ladies and gents, he’s on the Arrow, not a huge part of the show, but certainly notable. (Please refer to picture below.)

stephen

HA! Gotcha!! It’s Stephen Amell! and he’s the main character. Get it? It was a joke when I said that he wasn’t a huge part of the show. Cause he is! Get it? Anyway, yeah I totally met him in a bathroom. Dressed as the Arrow. It was the coolest thing ever. He was really nice and I told him he was a big fan. And at his panel I asked him if he was going to use his island wig to playing Casey Jones. If you don’t know of the island wig on Arrow, it’s worth a quick google search. If you don’t know who Casey Jones is why are you reading this, seriously all the references must be going over your head. Star Wars, and yes I made that Star Wars picture in paint, Arrow,  Doctor Who, Spiderman. I mean if you’ve made it this far and didn’t get at least eighty percent of the references I applaud you, seriously. Nice job dude. And yes I call guys and girls both dude. Just so you know I wasn’t leaving anyone out. Anyway, what was I going to say? Oh yeah, even if you get every reference and you are still reading, thank you. I just go, I literally type whatever is in my head, I’m hungry, and hit publish. And if you are willing to use your precious time reading that, well that, well it just warms my heart. Thanks guys! Anyway, as we all know it has been nerd overload lately. The Batman vs Superman trailer. Oh man! I am so stoked!!!!!! Seriously it has been playing on repeat in my head since I watched it. What else, Suicide Squad, Batman vs Superman, Deadpool, um what else, oh yeah, Batman vs Superman. X Men, Batman vs Superman is worth mentioning, Star Wars is coming up, that Batman vs Superman trailer was really good. Ant-Man will be out soon, maybe they’ll play that Batman vs Superman trailer during the pre-show. I saw Terminator which I loved. The Batman vs Superman trailer. Oh! Arrow started filming. BvS. Flash is gonna be on Season Two. Dawn of Justice. Legends of Tomorrow which looks so cool, and I love that they are using Rory to travel through time. I mean what a cool thing to do, and yes I called him Rory. Because to me that’s who he is. Rory, Amy, Doctor. I guess now it’s Rip, Nebula and Skynet. Sniffle. They grow up so fast!!! Yeah, so it has been an overload, which I can handle. I mean I got that spider bite and I have a one-step-down-from-an-arc-reactor-pacemaker. Sorry for any spoilers. And sorry I mentioned that trailer, (Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice) so many times, it’s just that, how can I put this,

IT’S A FUCKING BATMAN VS SUPERMAN TRAILER!!!!!!!!

Anyway, back to meeting Stephen and Caity, yeah, we’re on a first name basis, no big. They were so awesome and down to earth. No, noses in the air, no one was below them. They were both so nice, and so cool, and you know what? Whoever said don’t meet your heroes can go poop their pants!

Anyway, it’s been a slice, hit me up on IG and twitter, I follow back and I’m not quite as crazy, 140 characters and 1000 words, get it? cause a picture is worth a thousand words, and on Instagram you post pictures. Anyway, I’m allowed to make terrible jokes, I’m a dad. Puns, just for funs.

Bye bye

Oh yeah I couldn’t find a way to fit this in, but it’s so awesome so here:

language

K seriously bye.

MUSIC: THE GREAT CONNECTOR

Dun dun dun duh duh dun duh duh dun. Dun dun dun duh duh dun duh duh dun. Dun, dun dun duh duh dadada dun duh dun dadada dun dun dun duh dun duh dun.

MUSIC

SCORES

THEME SONGS

However you wanna put it, we love it!

Hey Poppers,

It’s been a while since I posted, I have been very busy, procrastinating over the sequel to my book. There’s a link to my first book right there on the left, see it? Go ahead buy a copy, it’s set in Canada, Canada is cool, trust me.

I wanted to do a blog post about something HUGE in the nerd world. Music. The theme songs we know and love, that get our blood pumping, that bring us back to wherever we were the first time words floated through space, or when Gandalf rode into The Shire.

So many characters we know and love have their own scores. And it’s always been that way. Now, if you are at work, pretending to do something, I want you to log onto Songza and search Epic Film Scores. This will immediately transform whatever boring thing your boss is making you do into an amazing adventure through space, a fantastical battle of the ages or send you soaring over cities saving the innocent from evil.

Now, before we go too crazy, let’s just name some big names. JOHN WILLIAMS. This guy, woooo. He is like, the man. Scratch that, he is the man. I mean come on! JAWS! SUPERMAN! STAR WARS! E.T. ! HARRY POTTER!!! This guy composed the most epic music we know and love people!!! Whether you were gazing upon Hogwarts or running from dinosaurs, this guy was there, flooding your ears with epic notes. I LOVE JOHN WILLIAMS. He is so cool, he is the greatest. He made nerd culture so much better with his epic class of epicness.

John-Williams-is-a-BAMF

Alright, now that I’m done nerding out about Johnny W. I will move on. Hans Zimmer. Now he has a long list of kick as tracks, Lion King, Gladiator, Last Samurai. But all you need to know is……. BATMAN. Nolan’s to be more specific. Hans got to compose the tracks the Bale wore his cape to, which in itself is a lifetime achievement.

hans

Howard Shore is the next one I would like to touch base on. Now, he has a long impressive resume. But he is the man behind LOTR, that’s right, the fellowship, ringers. The Lord of the Rings music is a wonder in itself. From cute jaunty tunes as we dance around The Shire, to booming epic horns blown as battle breaks out for miles, this man put together one of the greatest soundtracks ever. Nice.

howard

You know, they say half of what you see is what you hear, so just stop and think how much nerd culture you’ve seen. Yeah, that’s a buttload of music back there. As I have stated previously, my number one fandom, Avatar The Last Airbender has incredible music. Jeremy Zuckerman is a genius! A beautiful musical genius! The music behind this beautiful show could bring a tear to a cowboy’s eye. And don’t even get me started on Legend of Korra. He used a damn Erhu people!

And speaking of good ol’ TV shows. Arrow and The Flash have an incredible composer as well. His name is Blake Neely. The music in these shows can be anything from dark and creepy to epic and uplifting. I’ve said epic a lot this entry. I’m going to read this after I post it and everytime the word epic comes along I’m going to take a shot. K, anyway, yes, Arrow and Flash. The music is awesome, who could forget Barry’s theme in his double Arrow episodes, before he became The Flash, chills people, I had chills.

Red_surge_travels_through_Barry_Allen

I love all the iconic songs there have been through the ages, the Superman theme, Mario Bros. theme, all music out of Legend of Zelda. I love the Star Wars theme, I love the music of Doctor Who. I love shouting dun dun duh duh dun dun, when Captain Jack Sparrow sets sail. I love it all. Because music is the great connector the world has, and it has connected so many within nerd culture. Yeah.

So as usual, I feel like I’m just getting going on a blog, but I already feel like I’m out of ideas. Oooo I know, I’ll use some skills I learned in school, here this is coming at you from my essay days.

In conclusion, (pretty good hey), I would like to point out that music is super kick ass. People like Jeremy Zuckerman and John Williams make sure of that. Whether it’s the Imperial March or Catwoman’s theme, music can sure help a scene pull you to the edge of your seat or push you back into it.

Till next time

I’m J.W. Coughlan

Movie Monday: Injustice Gods Among Us The ‘Full Movie

Hello Poppers

Well once again to another Movie Monday and this time around I do have a movie, a full length film. Published on YouTube on April 17, 2013 this movie is done by taking the cut scenes in the story mode and mixing in some of the fight scenes. The fight scenes were cut down so you don’t spend to much time those. The movie is 2:26: so it is long. You may have to watch it in segments like me but it was fun to watch. Now I not sure who is the person responsible for this film. There is a watermark on it telling you that the RetrobrosTV are the ones. I had fun watching movie more than some of the other DC movies that are out there.

So sit back(for a couple of days) and watch a fun Superhero flick.

Gotham: Offical Extanded Trailer

Well Poppers if you have not see or heard it in the air that the first official trailer for the new show on Fox, Gotham was released today. Also there has been a longer version of the trailer released and it give you a little more of the look of the people and tone of this upcoming series.

If you do not know the origins of the Dark Knight then don’t even bother going any further here.

Okay you still there? If so then Gotham takes a different spin in that fact that we follow the young Bruce Wayne from the events of the death of his parents forward. Unlike most adaptions this will not move forward to the adult Bruce Wayne but follow him in his childhood. The story will also give us more insight into James Gordon as new detective in Gotham.  Some familiar characters will be along for the ride, The Penguin, Catwoman as a young girl and also Poison Ivy as a child also. The trailer does look interesting. My only problem is that it is on Fox and Fox is not a patient company. The show is from executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”).
