He is dangerous and slanderous.

At least according to Jim Litwak, the CEO of Trans World Entertainment, the company that runs FYE, Sam Goody, Specs, Wherehouse, and a few other music retailers.

Apparently, Jake Shears, the lead singer of the Scissor Sisters (the flamboyant hottie pictured above) was quoted at a retailer convention a few weeks back as saying he walked into an FYE to purchase the new Raconteurs album and was appalled to find it priced at $18.99 (practically $20 when you consider sales tax and all). Trans World lashed back saying “Our cd’s don’t cost $20!!”. Well Mary, I’ve been to FYE, and yes, your cd’s most certainly do cost $20. If they were priced around $10, then you have a right to complain. But more than $15 for a CD anywhere is fucking ridiculous. And it’s rare for sale prices at FYE to fall lower than $15. The only reason I ever went to FYE and Sam Goody in the first place was because they used to have a decent selection of CD singles and imports. Now they don’t even have that going for them.

In retaliation, no Trans World stores are carrying the new Scissor Sisters album. You know, the album that is at #1 in the UK right now. They’re even selling it at Wal-Mart (only $11.88 — watch out for falling prices!) and on iTunes, among other places. However, you will be unable to go pay $20 for it at FYE or Sam Goody. Oh well, I guess the industry is forcing us to pay less for it. At least until the Scissor Sisters issue a formal apology for “slandering” the company, only then, according to Jim Litwak, will they sell the new cd Ta-Dah!.

Well guess what Jimbo, people don’t normally apologize for tellin’ it like it is.

But don’t worry Jake, Kylie still loves you!
Thanks to ModFab for tipping me off about this travesty!

Buncha books this week… whoopee!!


Amazing Spider-Man #535 – Allegedly, Spider-Man could be flipping sides over the course of the Civil War. Could we see more seeds of this, like they were laid in Civil War #4 last week? And what would that mean to MJ and Aunt May. hmmm
Black Panther #20 – Black Panther takes his bitch, er, coff, I mean Storm out to the moon to visit the Inhumans. They’re kinda pissy with Earth right now, so will they be as gracious hosts as Dr. Doom was? heh
Cable & Deadpool #32 – Cable and Deadpool settle their differences like calm, well-adjusted individuals. Sike!
Captain America #22 – About time. I’ve been dying to see more of this Civil War situation from Cap’s perspective, and hopefully this arc will deliver!
Civil War: Frontline #6 – MOre stories of loose ends in the wake of Civil War. Plus Speedball begins his trial. OOooh!
Civil War: Young Avengers & Runaways #3 – So it appears that this series will have little effect on either team in the long run. Score.
Eternals #4 – This series totally makes my panties wet. I’m thrilled with Neil Gaiman’s work for Marvel. Not quite Sandman, but still riveting. And even John Romita Jr.’s art is impressive. Yay!
Heroes For Hire #2 – I truly don’t see this series lasting past Civil War unless they get some bigger guns on the team. Odds and ends bounty hunters from around the Marvel Universe, hired by Iron Man, to catch the “baddies” or something. Yawn.
X-Men #191 – I’m loving the revamp still. Art is on point, and the story is great. I just wish it could progress faster! Jeez.
Zombie #1 – Zombie’s are hot hot hot right now. Hopefully this series will keep me sated until i get the Marvel Zombie’s harcover for my bday (hopefully) and the next Walking Dead anthology for Christmas (hopefully). And I mean hopefully as in… i want them. Now.

here’s some tips for attending a meeting/seminar (i plan meetings for my job, and this is stuff that would make it easier):

1. be on time. if there is a registration period, arrive during that time. any earlier than that, you’re just in the way and the people setting up can’t attend to you. if you live in an area prone to traffic (Baltimore/DC) plan for it – if you budget more time then necessary, amuse yourself in the car or something.
2. bring a sweater. if there’s more than one person in a room, the likelihood of the temperature being to each person’s liking reduces with each new body coming into the room. if you’re prone to getting cold, bring a sweater, if you get hot a lot, wear a lighter shirt. if you’re an asshole, stay home.
3. don’t complain about the food. it’s very hard to plan a menu that appeals to a broad range of people. odds are you’re not paying for it anyway, so shut up and enjoy the free meal. or brown bag it, if you know ahead of time that you are a finicky bitch.
4. be prepared. it works for the boy scouts, and it should work for you. have note pad, pen, etc.
5. if the planning people are nice enough to send you directions, confirmation, information prior to the meeting; print it, read it, and keep it with you. no one wants to give you directions over the phone. no one wants to hear excuses that you don’t know sometyhing because you didn’t read the e-mail. don’t be a dumb fuck.
6. turn your cell phone on vibrate. if you must answer it – leave the room. if you must leave the room – be quiet. if you’re talking outside of the room – whisper. if you have no idea of a whisper – take your loud ass outside. if all that is too hard – leave the phone at home. if you leave the phone at home, don’t impose your phone needs on the hosts of the meeting.
7. don’t make a mess in the john. no one wants to clean up after you. you’re mother is probably thrilled to be relieved of the duty.
8. don’t be a bitch. remember that you are a guest. if you have a bad attitude, we’ll probably talk about you behind your back.
9. stay awake.
10. dress appropriately. if you lok a mess, we’ll talk about you behind your back.

thanks for your attention. remember that the people hosting the meeting will probably talk about you behind your back. we’re catty… and waiting for 10-100 people to show up for something can be pretty boring.

Before what I’m buying this weekend, let me share my excitement in sharing the news of the week. Brian K. Vaughan is leaving “Runaways”, the book giving him MUCH critical acclaim, after issue #25. This is pretty unfortunate, as he is he true mastermind behind an over 40 issue run of a brilliant series. However the big news is that Joss Whedon will be taking over for him. Joss, the guy behind the Buffy TV show and the Astonishing X-Men. This sounds awesome, and I only hope they find someone equally as terrific to follow Joss on Astonishing X-Men. Now on to the list:


Astonishing X-Men #17 – This series just won’t quit. After the reveal of Perfection last issue turned out to NOT be Jean Grey (a longshot, I admit), I’m still intrigued to find out how this story will be resolved. Also, kudos for a cover showing Wolverine looking like a big pussy. He’s normally shown in larger than life heroic poses, and for him to be quivering in fear is really unique!
Catwoman #59 – This issue we find out who Selina’s babydaddy is. Um, nothing else to say about that except — FINALLY!!
Civil War #4 – The wait is over. The delay wasn’t as excruciating as one would think, and Thor is BACK, bitches. This is mini-series is truly awe-inspiring.
Civil War: X-Men #3 – An X-Men series without Wolverine, HOT! Cyclops being mind controlled into battling Bishop, HOT! Domino back in the spotlight, HOT! Two more issues to resolve this plotline… hmmm
Nextwave #8 – This series is so much fun!! After Photon alluded to her suspicions last issue that Captain America was a ‘mo, I don’t know how editorial let’s some of the things in this series go to print. But I love that they do!
Runaways #22 With the team still reeling from a Gert’s death, and a creative shift on the horizon, I’m really anticipating the grand finale for the series creators in the next few issues. Allegedly the team is going to be on the run to Manhattan…. jinkies.
Wolverine #46 – Between the brilliant art, and the appearance and interaction with Namor, this title, one I normally ignore, has become a really riveting Civil War tie-in.
X-Factor #11 – I LOVE this series. The Singularity plotline is nearing resolution, and Madrox’s multipples are banging all the girls in the house. So much fun!
X-Men: First Class #1 – As a lover of all things X, I’m giving this series a chance. The original incarnation of the X-Men has never really been my favorite, since the characters are all pretty vanilla, however the first issue has received some great reviews. So we’ll see!

See you at the racks, kids!

Civil War Files #1 – A little one-shot to fill-in some info on most of the major players in the whole Civil War thing at Marvel. Hopefully it’ll clear up some of my questions… or just make more.
Ms. Marvel #7 – How do I love this series, let me count the ways. The Civil War tie-in arc is sure keeping my attention. They brought back Spider-Woman II (one of my favorite 90’s characters), plus is something developing with wonder Man??
New Excalibur #11 – How badly this series needs some direction. Now we’re into an arc about the Black Knight from the Avengers, who MAY be joining the team. They really need to do something interesting with this series. Or can it, and start a Dazzler solo title. That would be hot!
New X-Men #30 – So the carnage continues. I really feel like the creative teams should swap stories on New X-Men and New Excalibur. Have the grown-ups fighting some epic battle with Nimrod, and the kids, being, you know kids. They should be more on par with Runaways or Young Avengers. Instead they’re just a bit unbelievable in all their exploits. When are they ever in school?
Ultimate X-Men #74 – I’m definitely digging the direction their taking this story. the mysterious Magician is set to “duke” it out with Jean Grey/Phoenix this issue. And, we get to find out what’s wrong with him, plus Ultimate Cable is coming soon… OOOOhhh!!

Plus I get to catch up on all the books I bought at the Comic-Con on Sunday (somewhere in the ballpark of 70ish new books). AND I found my Marvel Legends figures… the ones that were “Wal-Mart Exclusives” except I had to go to a major trade show to find them. But Whatev, Kitty Pryde and Warbird (Ms. Marvel) are now mine mine mine!!!! Hooray.

… and i would love to see

Information here.

Thanks to ModFab for letting me know about the show!!

I wanna do something different this week. Summer’s over, and we all need a good laugh. So I’m sharing some of my funnier mp3’s. I want to mention that I ADORE Margaret Cho, but I don’t have any clips short enough, so you’ll just have to go rent the DVD’s. Sarah Silverman’s “Jesus is Magic” is also fuckin’ hilarious.

1. Wanda Sykes – Porno PSA (Bigger & Blacker) – Wanda Sykes is one of the funniest women in the world. I saw her at the DC improv a few years back and laughed my ass off. Every movie she’s in is better for her being in it. Even “Monster-In-Law”. This is a track from one of Chris Rock’s comedy CD’s. Enjoy!
2. Peaches – My Dumps (leaked) – I mentioned this song a few weeks ago, now you can hear it too. Pretty simple, it’s a NASTY parody of the Black Eyed Peas’ “My Humps”. Except they’re talking about doody. Fun!
3. Rickey Smiley – Funeral Arrangements (Prank Phone Calls Vol II) – I was introduced to Rickey Smiley a few years ago when this mp3 went around our office e-mail. Rickey imitates an old southern woman who discovers that someone close has passed away. It is HY-sterical (and loud, so beware). He has some of the funniest crank call CD’s out there!
4. Chris Rock – Monica Interview (Bigger & Blacker) – This is a little track put together by Chris Rock, and it’s sublime (to me). In it, he interviews “Monica Lewinsky”. Except Monica is portrayed by snippets from Lil’ Kim raps. Let the nastiness and hilarity ensue.
