:: Now, I’ve only got a smidgen of time to write out some thoughts on this, so I’ll keep it brief (and hopefully on point)…
1. Author Chuck Palahniuk announced today that he’s working on Fight Club 2, and that it will be done in a graphic novel style! Whether or not they’ll turn it into a movie is uncertain…but they probably will…
READ MORE [here]
2. The new teaser posters for X-Men:Days of Future Past were released this afternoon, to solidify any thoughts of a time-traveling-crossover between “First Class” and the original movie series!
:: Today there was a surprise panel to explain some major details, and reveal most of the cast - which includes stars from both “First Class” and the regular “X-Men” movie series.
WHICH MEANS with the confirmation of Bishop that there will be time travel! Also, and probably the biggest news, with Singer back as Director they will be eradicating some of the *cough*mistakes*cough* done in X-Men3…again with time travel haha
So for all of you that were thinking “how are they going to have two X-Men movie time lines” here ya go!

:: I haven’t paid much attention to this years ComicCon…until they released updates for X-Men: Days Of Future Past!!!
Below we see the return of Charles Xavier and Magneto, Colossus right off the hop, and BISHOP!!!
THEN IGN released footage captured of Sentinels, and news about Boliver Trask!
While it all still feels a little cheesey…I’m excited :)
I’ve had my iPad for a solid year now, and my friend Carl just bought his, so I thought it’d be interesting to share what I believe to be the top Apps for my favorite Apple product.
iWork: This includes Pages, Numbers, and Keynote ($9 each)
Moleskine: A really nice, clean, simple note-taking App for those who enjoy physically writing stuff out but want to use the iPad to save space. (free)
*I mostly use the pre-loaded Notes app for jotting things down, it has the great built-in feature of emailing your notes to you once you’ve finished writing to help you not forget.
Remote: An Apple sanctioned App that lets you control synced iTunes with your iPad. (free)
Nightstand: A great alarm clock, with tons of built in features. (free)
Holy Bible HD: By far the easiest to use, clearest version, with great cross-version integration (free)
Kindle: Amazon has created a reading monster! The biggest library, and best friend to any college student - with most textbooks ranging in the $10 price range. (free)
*i also use iBooks, but it’s Canadian store is virtually empty
Flipboard: My favorite source for daily news. It takes websites, your Facebook newsfeed, and even Tweets, and organizes them in a neat magazine style layout. (was $9 - now free apparently)
Marvel: I used to be a huge comicbook junkie, and have picked up the habit again since downloading this app. With individual comics priced at $1.99 how can you go wrong!? (free)
*there is a DC app with same prices for fans of that universe
PS Express: Made for the iPhone, but just as helpful for minor on-the-go photo edits. (free)
Netflix: Get real, who doesn’t use this? (free)
Crackle: Like Nflix, but for those shows/movies that we loved and then forgot about (free)
Vimeo: Personally preferred over YouTube, but not as popular (free)
MyPad: The best way to interact on Facebook with your iPad (free)
Checkin Map: Cause Foursquare is for chumps (free)
Google+: Very similar to the Fbook App, which in this case isn’t a bad thing (free)
IM+: Take your AIM, MSN, and Fbook/MySpace Chat and cram them all into one easy to use window (free)
*of course there’s the official Twitter and Tumblr apps that you should automatically have!
Beatwave: Touch the squares and music happens; more like a game a music making device (free)
Drum Kit: Mess around with a full set of drums ($1)
Classical: A classic guitar on your screen. Not the easiest to use, but fun to play around with (free)
Angry Birds Seasons HD LITE: This version updates itself with the holidays…Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, etc. (free or $1.99 for full version)
Plants vs Zombies: My all time favorite iOS game ($3)
ZTP: Zombie vs redneck tower defence game (free)
NOVA 2: It’s the iOS answer to Halo ($7)
#sworcery: Has to be played to be understood…………. ($5)
X-MEN: The classic arcade multiplayer platformer, one of the best ($1)
E.Legacy: A great RPG for lovers of the PS1’s Final Fantasy series ($5)
SF IV: Street Fighter 4 in your hands, awesome! ($5)
