Pop Culture News Roundup 01.23.09

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Pop Culture News Roundup

ITEM! Diamond Distribution adjusts its benchmark for products it will carry! I haven’t read all the blog posts that talk about this issue, but I did read some articles that explain the issue clearly. As far as I can tell, this will mostly affect the small press guys. I’m a mainstream whore so, yeah. It’s not the end of the world for me.

ITEM! DC announces Origins and Omens creative teams! I didn’t really like the whole Faces of Evil stunt, and I’m not that interested with the Origins and Omens concept either. But hey, you’ll never when you’ll stumble upon a real gem of a comic amidst all the editorial bullshit, right?

ITEM! The Human Torch and Emo Superman join the cast of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World! Chris Evans and Brandon Routh will play 2 of the 7 evil ex-boyfriendsf Scott Pilgrim’s ladylove. Sounds interesting, but still not sure about the whole idea. I should really get the graphic novels ASAP.

If you’re anything like me, I love browsing through my feeds, scouring for interesting news all over the Internet. It’s a dirty job, but it’s worth it when I find those face-rocking news items. I’m here now to share to you comics and pop culture news that I found this week. This is actually me continuing what I started with Comics News Roundup, only more pop culture-y.

ITEM! Heath Ledger posthumously received the Golden Globe award for Best Supporting Actor! It was for his legendary role as the Joker in The Dark Knight, which I’ve already watched a bajirrion times. Nerds all over the Internet are now hoping for an Oscar. FOR HEATH!

ITEM! First OFFICIAL Winnie the Pooh story in 80+ years! The first authorized sequel to “Winnie the Pooh and the House at Pooh Corner” is entitled “Return to the Hundred Acre Wood” and will be released on October 5th, 2009. I haven’t read the original, but hey. Maybe it’s time that I do.

ITEM! Patrick McGoohan and Ricardo Montalban passed away. Rest in peace, legends of Geekdom.
