Shouldn't have said that

I regret making this comment.

I should have said:
Hey Val, did they show you one of my letters?!
I didn't think of it until after I posted, though, and now it would look bad if I deleted it.

Still, I think my qualifications as a rabid Lantern Fan-warrior might be going back on my profile, because we're getting our reputation back and I may as well make use of it.


  1. I wouldn't worry. The opinions of someone who can dare compare Shia LaBeouf to John Cusack do not bear serious consideration.

    Still... have to wonder if any of my letters on on display as well...

  2. Well, unless your letter was double-sided on looseleaf paper and threatening physical harm in revenge for Hal, it probably was not you.

    It was taped on the door of the office that handled Green Lantern.

    H.E.A.T. was a running joke in the office but also I think the organization achieved its ultimate mission just by the fact that we all knew who they were. And that the audience was there for old-school GL books, which is what I think "Sinestro Corps" is all about.

    Oh and Starman: John was in "Must Love Dogs." Remember that. Oh sure, he probably cynically did it for the money, using his paycheck to fund some uber-hip "serious" movie. But I think him and Shia are even.

  3. OS -- Then you'd be wrong about targeting old school GL fans, though, because GL:SC was focusing on Kyle. Hal only got a couple of lines.

    I'd have thought you'd realize that, having worked there.

  4. With all due respect, the finer distinctions between GL fan clubs has not taken the biggest of priorities in my overall memories of DC.


    Besides, all those Lanterns -- with the exception of Guy -- are pretty much the same to me.


  5. OS - I'm talking about acting skill, not "ability to sell-out". Shia on his best day couldn't touch John on his worst as an actor.

    Don't believe me? Watch Constantine. In a movie with Keannu Reeves, Shiva still managed to be the most flat and dull actor in the piece. That is an anti-acomplishment of note.

  6. WHAT?!! Yeah, you'd better run!

    Dammit, I need a sign at the top of my blog. "Do not comment here unless you have read Rebirth twice!"

  7. Wait...she likes Guy? Much can be forgiven in that case.

  8. Sally --
    She never said she liked him, just that he's distinctive.

    Actually, she predicts his death in the linked post.
