Get ready for some more ‘Goldilocks’ hammer tossing tirades from everyone’s favorite Aesgardian and comic book superhero, Thor!
The monster sized box office take for this Marvel Comics character has hit half a billion worldwide which means it’s a shoe-in for a sequel that is now said to be on it’s way in 2013.
Thor won’t have its director Kenneth Branagh to helm the project which might be a good thing, but it does have Don Payne back on board to do the main writing chores.
Payne worked on other Marvel projects and superhero fare such as “Fantastic Four: Rise Of the Silver Surfer” and the Uma Thurman comedy, “My Super Ex-Girlfriend”.
Of course Chris Hemsworth will return as the hammer slinging hero and for good reason. The Marvel Comics line of movies is now under the control of Disney.
Some authors have the uncanny ability to create characters I feel like I’ve met. Elizabeth Berg is one such author. Her “Once Upon a Time, There Was You,” includes a well-rounded cast of characters I could’ve gone to school with or worked with for years. I feel like I know them, and am genuinely interested in what they think and do.
“There Was You” begins with a short prologue. It’s the wedding day of the two main characters, John and Irene Marsh. They both have serious reservations about the marriage, but family and friends convince them to take their vows.
The first chapter fast forwards the story 20 years. John and Irene are divorced and live in different states, John in Minnesota and Irene in California. It’s been many years since they’ve seen each other. Their only child, 18-year-old Sadie, lives with Irene, but remains close with John. When Sadie wants to
I had high hopes for the big experiment of this year’s festival – the Saturday night Lit Crawl. Modeled on the hugely successful Litquake in San Francisco, the idea is to move literary events out of the sedate world of bookstores or, in this case, the State Capitol, and out into bars.
I don’t have anything against the sedate world of the standard book event — I am a sedate guy myself — but I was hoping the East Austin bar scene would inject a hip, youthful vibe to the proceedings. Unfortunately, at the events I was able to sample, it felt more as if the bar scene simply became sedate for a few hours.
Words do create an impact on other people even if it is mere scolding or an advice, the way it brings a change of thoughts on the other person’s mind is phenomenal. The same thing applies to talking dirty. The effect you have on your partner and the way you want your partner to behave with you totally depends on how well you talk with them. The way you talk with your partner should be in such a way that they grab an instant liking to your idea or crave for the time where you can actually implement what you spoke. That is the art of talking dirty and it should always be well balanced. I Read more…
Fanizzi’s has a fabulous back dining room that offers gorgeous views of Cape Cod Bay and Provincetown Harbor, but you don’t need the view to enjoy this gem.
Since we didn’t have reservations and our son was too hungry to wait for a premium seat, we decided to take a table in the intimate front dining room that overlooks Commercial Street on the far end. It has a comfortable atmosphere with dim lighting, rustic faux barn-board walls and beams in the ceiling.
The menu is varied and had plenty of things that we wanted to try, so we ordered a little bit of everything. Forks and fingers flew as we all sampled each other’s food. It really added to the fun, because food is so much more enjoyable when shared.
Everyone loved the Mediterranean plate appetizer ($9.99), a large platter with enough variety to be dinner.
