Links of note.

Grant Morrison interview. Yes, magic is real. Y'know what makes it seem even more real? Rituals that feature hallucinogenic drugs.

i09's 10 comic creators they'd rather see direct a movie than Frank Miller. They make a lot of fair points. Mainly about Pope and Mignola.

Y'know how people keep linking to new episodes of THE VENTURE BROTHERS streaming on the Adult Swim website, but you can't see 'em because you're on the wrong blamed continent? Well, bypass that by watching them via the creator's commentaries section. Hola! I'm thanking Sean for giving me that idea.

Like The Beatles and Led Zeppelin before him, Dan McDaid has broken America. Dunno what it'll take to put it back together again. Gaffer tape?

Has there ever been any comics people that take the Hendrix route? Fail in America, get huge in the UK, and then return triumphantly to rub it in our faces? I'd like to see that.

McDaid is a good guy, anyone who likes Kung Fu Hustle is a saint in my book. If only Popgun wasn't sold out everywhere.

I'd love to see Sean Phillips direct something...

For someone who denies being that into motors, Sean draws the best car chases around. Bet he could shoot a kick-arse heist flick, a la THE ITALIAN JOB. With added sex and violence.

Okay, I'm basically saying he should make a movie like CRANK.

Sean, I think me and the missus are gonna give Shaolin Soccer a go tomorrow. I'll let you know.

Mark... gaffer tape won't even *begin* to cover it. Also, Sean Phillips brings the Bullitt. Every time.

Oh, and cheers!
