It's Friday already?!?

Well, Friday has rolled itself around, and while I've not watched all the various animes that I have waiting, I have steamed through a decent number of my backlog. What's left is a couple of episodes of Spice and Wolf and a couple of episodes of Shana.

Beyond that, my youngest has now entered his "I'm always right, and I want things done my way, right now" phase. This is also coupled with the standard phase of only wanting to eat certain foods, and screaming when those foods aren't served.

I fear even now that it will be a long six to eighteen months before this phase has fully ran its course.

But, you know what? I have a live-action version of Akira to look forward to. Unfortunately, it appears that Leo DiCaprio will be staring in it.

Oh well.

This Tuesday, the next Legacy of the Force novel should be in your favorite bookstore, so be on the lookout for that. In other good book news, the next Tremaire novel should be out July 8th of this year. Ms. Novik has entitled it Victory of Eagles. Something else to look forward to.

In sad news though, the upcoming Wolverine feature length film has a near constant updating of various mutants that are scheduled to appear in that particular movie. Among those on the list now: Gambit, Deadpool, Silverfox and the Blob. You know, for a movie about a loner, that's sure a bunch of names.

Sadder news though is that io9 is reporting that Jar Jar will appear in the upcoming Clone Wars movie and television show. In less sad news, they also have a scan of some concept art for General Grievous for the animated show. While it looks good, I have to remind myself that the concept art for Obi-Wan and Anakin looked good as well. It's only when they got CG'd that they become wooden, lifeless images on the screen.

Alas, I'm still going to go see it though.
