Links of the Day

Singer Returning to X-Men - In an interview with MySpace at the premiere of Avatar, Bryan Singer revealed that he is returning to the X-Men franchise with X-Men: First Class. No indications if this is based on the comic book series by the same name which essentially covers the core X-Men (Cyclops, Jean Gray, Ice Man, Beast, etc) as they experienced the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning for the first time as they learned to control their mutant powers.

Clash of the Titans Trailer #2 - Click the link for different formats of the second trailer for the movie that is shaping up to look pretty good.

Special Comment: Not Health, Not Care, Not Reform - Keith Olbermann essentially summarizes my disgust at what the Healthcare Reform Bill has become at the hands of the Senate, that whore Lieberman, and that useless man who can't lead Reid. The idea was to provide healthcare to all, hold insurance companies to basic standards (rather than whatever they want to do, they can do), and try to reduce the cost of healthcare by encouraging preventative care (thus healthcare for all aspect). Instead, the Democrat leadership has caved on everything. The reform is gone, the healthcare for all is gone, and there is no attempt to really reduce the cost, so system of checks and balances. It’s become a massive paycheck to the insurance companies with an "I hope you will do the right thing with this money" rider. At this point, the bill is useless and we would be better off starting over again, this time with people actually willing to lead, to use up political capital, and ok with not necessarily being liked by everything. There has been no leader no this bill, just a bunch of people gawking for the camera, hoping to take credit for any good while dodging the blame for any bad.

Mega Man 10 Trailer - If interested, the next installment of the franchise, retaining its 8-bit graphics and design. The game will be released in the next few months on the Wii, PS3, and 360, likely for around $10.
