Movie News – Iron Man 4, Dark Judges, and More! Plus Music Trivia, Ninja News, and Random Ninja Stuff

Movie News

Rumor of the day: Sony and Marvel might get together on Spider-Man! (Yeah, wouldn’t that be awesome?) Get the details on Blastr.

From JoBlo - on Ellen Degeneres' talk show, Robert Downey Jr. said that yes, an Iron Man 4 movie is coming. Before that, we’ll see Iron Man in Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 2, 2015.

JoBlo also has an exclusive clip of the Guillermo del Toro-produced animated film, The Book of Life. You can view it HERE

An unofficial Dark Judges mini-series is in the works. From Blastr:
Adi Shankar, producer of the first Dredd film, has secretly been filming his own seven-part Dredd miniseries focused on the Dark Judges arc. That’s right — Shankar has created his own, unofficial Dredd project that’ll be released for free online later this month.

And if you haven’t been watching, SyFy’s Face Off is halfway through the new season, and there have been some amazing makeups and creatures so far.

Random Ninja Stuff

Many of you asked about the song that inspired my latest manuscript. When and if I know it’s a done deal with my publisher, I’ll post the video for you. The song title is similar to the manuscript title, plus the lyrics give away some of the story, so you’ll have to wait a bit.

The Flash was really good last night. Had an excellent DC comics vibe to it. 

I finally set up my Author QandA at Goodreads. Had no idea I could do that. Thanks for the tip, Elizabeth! Feel free to ask a question – Goodreads generated a few to start, but they are rather bland…

Really random - peanut butter is awesome. I won't eat pancakes without peanut butter on them.

And my wife purchased some mums, so Mini-Alex would like to dedicate these to all of the ladies! The praying mantis tried to help with the guitar solo, but he wasn’t very good with the strings…

Think Sony and Marvel might get it together? Have you been watching Face Off? Excited about the new releases? Know any of the trivia? Think Mini-Alex should make more appearances…?


Miranda Hardy said...

Wow, sounds like some great movies are in the works, or will be.

Love the mums! Congrats on all the great news and releases.

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

My husband and son have watched Face Off a few times and liked it!

Yes, those Goodreads starter questions aren't very interesting. Readers can come up with way-better ones!

Michelle Wallace said...

Hey, those are my books...and my piano mug! Yay!
Congrats on all the new releases!
Mini-Alex rocks!
I enjoy a simple peanut butter sandwich with's my go to snack...and popcorn...

Anonymous said...

Congrats to all new books out. Seems quite a good selection.

Regarding the Trivial. I scored a fat if you were to ask questions about Danny Boy I may get one or two correct.
Have a nice day.

mail4rosey said...

Mini Alex is cute, and mums are sure sign of Fall.

I'm excited about the new Avengers release. Those kinds of movies are my fave.

I know Metallica, Queensryche, Satriani, Rush, and Alice in Chains. I might know the others with a reminder/refresh.

Truedessa said...

Good Morning Alex,

Interesting post! A new Spider man movie I might enjoy and Robert Downey Jr does play a good Iron Man.

The Ninja likes Peanut Butter on his pancakes. Sorry, to that I would have to pass. I like mine with maple syrup.

5. Shadows Falls
9. Joe Satriani

Ninja looks like he is having fun as a praying mantis looks on. I had a stick bug on my door for two days when I came home from work. It is often referred to as a ghost bug. That seems appropriate and I wonder why it came to call.

Rhonda Albom said...

I am not really much of a fan of Spiderman or Metallica (it's the only one I know). However, here in New Zealand, I am a mum (British for mom). And finally, to round off this scattered comment - I think I will have pancakes with peanut butter.

Christine Rains said...

Awesome movie news! And congrats to everyone who has a book coming out. Mini-Alex is rocking out with that praying mantis!

Random wondering: do you like peanut butter on celery too? My husband does and that's really odd to me. I grew up in Canada and we put cheese on celery.

Dani said...

I love how they entwine movies like Iron Man and Avengers.

Without cheating, I only know Metallica, Alice in Chains, Rush & Pantera. Walk is one of my fav songs!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Elizabeth, I hope so! Thanks again for the tip.

Michelle, thanks again.

Yvonne, I bet you would get all of them correct.

Rosey, you rock! You are correct.

Truedessa, good job. And you got Shadows Fall - awesome! I've only seen a stick but once. Weird looking creatures.

Rhonda, enjoy your pancakes!

Christine, I've seen it both ways, but I don't eat celery. What's the point?

Dani, you rock!!!

Unknown said...

You sound like my son--PB on everything. Have you tried Peter Pan's Honey Roast? He eats it by the spoonful.

Anonymous said...

Wow, am I top 20?! YAY!

I want to do a shelfie! :D

I saw the last few minutes of The Flash last night. It was really good. I'll have to catch up. I'm compiling a list of those...

I love preying mantises. They're so silly. lol Hope he at least sang well. ;)

Bob/Sally said...

Hmm, right off the top of my head I recognize Anthrax, White Zombie, Metallica, Alice in Chains, Rush, Queensryche, Dream Theater, and Pantera. Missed a few that I'm sure will be obvious as soon as I see them.

mshatch said...

Sadly, I know none of the trivia altho I do recognize the title to the last one... Cool pic of mini you and the praying mantis :)

Jeremy [Retro] said...

Heck yes on IM4, I am in for that... I think that Spiderman might be too far gone for it to wreck what Disney/Marvel has done. I might be wrong, please let me be wrong.


Loni Townsend said...

That praying mantis just needs to practice a bit more. Then you'll have an awesome guitar duet!

So many movies in the making recently. I didn't know they were coming out with The Flash. Was it a pretty quick movie?

Charles Gramlich said...

I had read that there wouldn't be any more individual Iron Man movies. Guess that was wrong.

kaykuala said...

These are great movies in the works. Ought to be satisfaction to many. No trivia questions answered though but a pancake with honey is a favorite. Thanks for sharing Alex!


Melissa said...

Ha! Love the praying mantis!

Congrats to all with new releases.

You and my son #1 would get along great. He likes peanut butter on his pancakes, too. Now you just need to get your wife to throw in some chocolate chips before she flips them, and you'll be all set. :)

S.A. Larsenッ said...

Iron Man 4 ... sweet! Love the mums. Mini-Alex looks snazzy in front of them.

Heather M. Gardner said...


You completely stumped me with album titles. I'd have to look them all up! I wonder why I can memorize song lyrics, but not other stuff. Hmmm.

I watched The Flash a few minutes ago. I think its got great potential. I already love Arrow. My secret obsession. :)

Mini-Alex looks awesome and ewwwwww. BUG!!!

Heather said...

If that photo doesn't make a lady smile, I don't know what would. Well, I have a few ideas, but we'll keep it clean around here, Alex. That's to say, bring back Mini-Alex time and again. Smiles.

Cherie Reich said...

I'm glad The Flash was good. I recorded it and hope to watch it later this week.

Shell Flower said...

Brinda's book looks awesome. I love that mini-Alex hangs out with a praying mantis. Those insects are so cool. Peanut butter is yummy. And the only album I could name the band is the Metallica one.

Luanne G. Smith said...

A praying mantis on guitar solo! A true sic-fi band experience. :)

Crystal Collier said...

I LOVE that feature on Goodreads. Seriously. It doesn't get much better than being able to do a Q&A with the author.

Leovi said...

Anthrax - Persistence of Time

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Yes, more mini-Alex, please!

Patsy said...

I like mini-Alex becoming at one with nature.

Sherry Ellis said...

Haha! Nicely posed praying mantis!

I've heard conflicting reports about Iron Man 4. He did say on the Ellen show that there would be an Iron Man 4, but he told someone else that there wasn't anything in the works.

Stephanie Faris said...

Mini-Alex cracks me up. Pretty flowers! I find it interesting that many of these shelfies aren't on actual bookshelves. I wonder if a lot of people have the problem I do--most of my books are on my Kindle, so I don't really have a need for a bookshelf.

Carrie-Anne said...

I love the praying mantis on the guitar. It's such a touch of serendipity when things like that come together for a photo shoot.

Anonymous said...

Love the picture with Mini-Alex.
I saw yesterday that there were rumors of an Iron Man 4, and about Spider-man. How exciting. =D

Arlee Bird said...

Peanut butter on pancakes? That is pretty random. I'll stick with syrup thank you.

Tossing It Out

Nigel G Mitchell said...

Never had the pancakes with peanut butter. Flash was also awesome, lots of Easter eggs.

Catherine Stine said...

Always fun to see your own book in someone else's book pile! No, I have not heard of the fight between sony and Marvel. Not until now.

Laura Clipson said...

I can't wait to see the next Avengers movie, same goes for Iron Man; I love them.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Melanie, I'm a Jif man.

Debra, at least he had a head to sing with.

Bob, good job!

Loni, it's a weekly series - first one was last night.

Melissa, I've been tempted...

Robyn, I will!

Shell, you got one.

Leovi, you rock!

Sherry, I'm hoping there is one more.

Stephanie, we still have bookshelves, but most of my books are on my iPad.

S. L. Hennessy said...

I've been waiting for Sony and Marvel to get it together since they first acquired the Spider-Man rights. Let's hope it really happens. Yay for Iron Man 4!

Pat Hatt said...

Glad IM4 is getting made, enjoyed 1 and 3, 2 sucked. Wonder if he'll get his wish and have Gibson direct or be in it haha glad the flash is good, gonna save a few episodes and then binge watch that.

Spiderman in the avengers would be awesome, as long as they don't make him dark and dreary like the 2nd movie. Now if only Fox would stop being idiots and let Wolverine come out to play, be all set.

Liz Blocker said...

I always love a mini-Alex appearance! And I'm with you on peanut butter. It's like the best thing on earth.

Unknown said...

YES to more mini alex! Ha, that's hysterical..and I am totally stumped on those album titles.

Brian Miller said...

nice...i want to see the book of life....and iron man 4 will rock...i figured they would make another...but...and it makes sense that it will be after avengers...wonder if they will try hulk again....have you been watching agents of shield...i am a bit torn on it

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I still have to set that up on my Goodreads Author profile....

And I so love peanut butter, but I never thought to put it on pancakes - yum!

Madeline @ The Shellshank Redemption

Julie Flanders said...

I could live on peanut butter but have never tried it on pancakes. Now I want to right away.
Will check out your Goodreads Q&A- I didn't know that was a possibility there.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Fun learning you love peanut butter. I really like it too but not sure about it and pancakes.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Alex - I spotted Anne Allen's excellent post over at the IWSG site ... glad Michelle has Long Walk to Freedom on her shelfie, along with your book and The Book Thief ... no idea about the films - but that's normal for me .. cheers Hilary

The Happy Whisk said...

Peanut butter is a great start, Alex. And what fun. Good on you.

Keep 'em coming, Buster.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Pat, hope that wish doesn't come true. And so true about Wolverine.

Liz, Amen!

Brian, yes, and last night's episode was frustrating.

Madeline and Julie, give it a try!

DiscConnected said...

1 – Persistence of Time (1990)
ANTHRAX-I thought I remembered another album with this tile but it's not in my collection
2 – Astro-Creep: 2000 (1995)
3 – …And Justice For All (1988)
4 – Jar of Flies (1994)
5 – The Art of Balance (2002)
SHADOWS FALL-these guys record in a friend of mine's studio in Mass-not sure if Jim gets engineering credits on the album or not, but they've done a few albums at Zing Recording Studio
6 – Hold Your Fire (1988)
RUSH (unless you meant the Firehouse album, but I doubt it)
7 – Empire (1990)
8 – Images and Words (1992)
9 – Flying in a Blue Dream (1989)
10 – Vulgar Display of Power (1992)

How did I know you'd have a Rush and DT album on the list...?


Michael Offutt, Phantom Reader said...

Sony and Marvel should get together. I'm eager to see Spiderman meet the Avengers. However, I think they should recast Spidey.

Empty Nest Insider said...

Congrats to all the authors! I look forward to seeing your Q & A! Now I have a craving for peanut butter pretzels!


Notes Along the Way with Mary Montague Sikes said...

The mums are pretty. Love to see them on doorsteps in the fall. Have you tried the almond butter?

Birgit said...

Not into peanut butter but love fruit with pancakes. Love the mums and believe Ninja Alex should pop up in many different places like the travelling gnome...maybe on a starship?? I have nmo clue about any of the trivia but love Faceoff! The blond girl was quite good except last night-not so good but her voice-omg! I want to take her for elocution lessons. My fav from last night was Aphrodite. The fish head was excellent. I love to see how they create all these amazing figures. It would be cool to be a model of one of these

Anonymous said...

Definitely think that mini Alex should make more appearances. The mums look very nice.

Ava Quinn said...

Sweet shot of Mini-Alex with the mums and praying mantis!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Ivy, I tried for you.

Larry, perfect score! And of course I would have both Rush and Dream Theater on the list. That's cool Shadows Fall records at your friends' studio.

Mary, I haven't.

Birgit, I taped it and will watch tonight. She's one of my favorites as well.

Andrew Leon said...

Downey's under contract for a 4th movie, so we knew that was coming. He's been saying that will be his last, though.
There's been talk that the 5th will be War Machine.

At this point, I don't think I want Sony and Marvel getting together on a Spider-Man project. It will mean -another- re-boot, and it doesn't need to go through that unless Marvel gets the property back.

Annalisa Crawford said...

#7 Queensryche - a brilliant album for the gym!

I have just discovered the delights of peanut butter, and Hubby has already taken to rationing me :-)

M Pax said...

Congrats to Brinda, Terri, and Gwen!

Cool photo. Love the mantis helping out.

Fundy Blue said...

I hope that your latest novel is a done deal with your publisher soon, Alex! It was fun to see you on Goodreads. Wow! I don't do well with outlines, because I have to flounder around and find my direction and voice. It's always been that way for me. It's usually the setting that inspires me. I guess I've lived in areas where the location determines your life. And I use music to get at emotion. One day, sooner rather than later, I'm going to be on Goodreads (That's a goal, not a dream!). I'm watching Outlander, listening to Passenger, and rereading LOTR. Have you started your next book yet?

J E Oneil said...

I have doubts about Sony and Marvel getting together to make a sandwich, let alone a movie. It's a nice dream, though.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

I hope Spiderman gets crossed over.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Yes! So glad there is an Iron Man 4. Saw Iron Man 3 in theaters and plan to see all others there first. Downey also did an interview this morning on ABC's morning show for The Judge. Sounds like a good movie but not sure I can fit on my movie list. My budget is tight and I saw only two movies last month and for this plan to see The Equalizer and Gone Girl. Hopefully The Book of Life around November. Must see for November (my birthday month) is Big Hero Six. Will be checking out that trailer Mr. Del Torro is so dark and talented. Go Mini Alex and it seems you've been Chris Brown'd. Was that mantis going for your guitar or a kiss?

Al Penwasser said...

A Marvel adaptation of

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Love how the praying mantis show up in the fall. I've seen so many. I set up the Q an A too and received those bland questions.
Can't wait to hear this inspiring song.

T. Powell Coltrin said...

Love little Alex. He should make more appearances.

Mason T. Matchak said...

Ehh... I'll believe Sony and Marvel working together when I see it. It seems like everyone's trying to imitate the Marvel movies' success these days, so I have serious doubts about any studio giving up money when superhero movies are involved. Hrm.

And peanut butter is indeed awesome. It's a staple of my diet; I quite literally eat some every day. ^_^

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Andrew, maybe they'll just dump him in with the others without a reboot.

Annalisa, excellent!

Mary, he was trying.

Fundy, next book? No pressure!

JE, that made me chuckle.

Sheena-kay, no kiss! Mini-Alex like the ladies, not the bugs.

Mason, you know how to live...

SC Author said...

Whattt....How can there be more Iron Man's after...the ending of the third one?

DMS said...

Love the shot of Mini-Alex!

I am a big fan of peanut butter- but I have never tried it on pancakes. I'm not sure about it, but I may have to try it anyway. :)

Trisha said...

1 – don't know
2 – guessing ... Misfits?
3 – Metallica
4 – Alice in Chains
5 – no idea
6 – no idea
7 – Queensryche
8 – don't know
9 – don't know
10 – don't know ... but I know ... but I don't know :(

Jennifer Lane said...

Mini-Alex kind of scares me!

The Happy Whisk said...

Thanks, you did real good. And it was funny. But mostly it was great to read.

Well done, you.

Keep 'em coming.

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

That's interesting about the unofficial Dredd project. I suppose he can get away with it because it's free.

Helena said...

Okay, I love peanut butter too. But on pancakes?

I'm looking forward to your inspirational song reveal. May you have a wonderful done deal with your publisher soon!

T.F. Walsh said...

Lots of buzz going on... it would be awesome if Marvel and Sony got together... :)

Matthew MacNish said...

I'm really looking forward to Age of Ultron.

And I know like three of those albums!

Deniz Bevan said...

Lovely flowers!

Album no.4 is one of my favourites.

Congratulations on submitting your MS!

And a huge thanks to you and the team for all your work on the IWSG anthology!

Kirsten said...

Yes, mini-Alex should grace your posts more often!
And yay, I know some trivia. :) Alice in Chains for Jar of Flies, and Joe Satriani for Flying in a Blue Dream. Both were awesome albums!

TBM said...

Lots of big movie news and love the photo of Little Alex and his friend. I love peanut butter and like to eat it with an apple.

Karen Jones Gowen said...

I can't get my favorite peanut butter-- Skippy extra crunchy-- in Panajachel. We can buy a Planter's brand but it's pretty expensive. Anyway, totally agree with you about peanut butter!!!! It's an essential food group.

Cathy Olliffe-Webster said...

Awwww, flowers? For us? *swoons*

StratPlayerCJF said...

Absolutely -- love the stolen garden gnome pictures of Mini-Ninja-Alex!

Also love the praying mantises. I think they'd be a good subject for a sci-fi movie. Like maybe one gets infected with radiation from atomic testing and grows to giant size, and the army has to try and stop it and... Nah. Too cheesy. A movie like that would never be made...

And I have to confess that I am not the hugest of metal heads (was more into jam bands and the like), so half of these I do not know:

1. idea...
2. ...I got nada...
3. Metallica
4. Alice in Chains
5. clue...
6. Rush
7. ...dunno...
8. I think Dream Theater?
9. Satch
10. ...shrug...

Jeff Chapman said...

I think the mantis is trying to eat the guitar.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

You forgot to mention that RDJ said he wouldn't mind doing an episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD, too.

Marvel plays hardball when it comes to money -- did you know that Scarlet Johannsen got paid more for AVENGERS than Chris Evans?

I don't hold out much hope for the Sony/Marvel agreement. Marvel is canceling THE FANTASTIC FOUR as a comic to hurt Fox. And it has mandated that no new mutants are to be created in the X-comics so that Fox is not handed more characters to play with.

Dean K Miller said...

Mini-Alex is all we get. More! More! (unless Maxi-Alex is going to show up once in a while.) Enjoy Anne R Allen's post yesterday. ZERO on the music challenge, but it's my Friday at work so I'm a bit disconnected.

Patricia Stoltey said...

I always go first to your list of new releases. I need my TBR list to be really, really, really long....

Robin said...

I thought my mom was the only one who ate peanut butter with her pancakes. I've tried it. Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don't. Now I know one other person who DOES.

It makes my heart sing to see RDJr doing so well. There was a time during the 90s, when his drug problem raged, that I just wasn't sure he would ever beat it. I am so glad that he came out on top of that one.

Krista McLaughlin said...

Another Marvel movie, I'm in! :)

I like the picture! Your books did show up in a lot of the Shelfie's, which is awesome! :)

I admit the preying mantis creeps me out a little bit... bugs. *shudder*

SK Anthony said...

It would be awesome to see Spidey crossover!

Pancakes and peanut butter . . . that is interesting. I'm not sure I'd try it though lol And yes to more Mini-Alex pics!

Raquel Byrnes said...

I am always up for another Marvel movie. I can't wait! Off to check out the Dark Judges link. Thanks for sharing.
Edge of Your Seat Stories

The Angry Lurker said...

My mate is very excited about your Dark Judges news!

Susan Kane said...

I think Mini-Alex should do some traveling. Like the Gnome in the Travelocity commercials, Mini-Alex could go all sorts of local places.

Karen Lange said...

Mini Alex should definitely make more appearances. Thanks for all the info. Have a great weekend!

Leovi said...

It is perfect in your book that tower of books!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Songs really can be inspiring. Waiting to hear more about your latest.
I noticed that Ninja costumes for kids are popular this year. Almost bought one for myself, decided not to. :)

Donna McDine said...

Love Mini Alex hanging out in the mums!

Jemi Fraser said...

I haven't managed to see any of the Face Offs yet! maybe in reruns :)

Jack said...

Iron Man 4, I know some people who are going to be excited about that. (Me included) I didn't think there would be a forth.

Kelly Polark said...

Love the fall ninja photo!

Okay so the music trivia.
I only know a few...
3. Metallica
7. Queensryche (love that album)

I'm so ashamed! That's all I know!

Rachna Chhabria said...

Mini-Alex should definitely make more appearances as he is such a hottie, oops I mean cutie ;)

Even I like my pancakes with Peanut butter :)

L.G. Keltner said...

The ones I know off the top of my head are:
2. White Zombie
3. Metallica
4. Alice in Chains
8. Dream Theater
And yes, peanut butter is indeed awesome!

Elise Fallson said...

Love mini Alex with the mantis! I posted a pic of a mantis on my face a couple of weeks ago.... lol!

Unknown said...

Mini Alex strikes a nice pose!

Like the idea of a Spiderman, Marvel hero movie.

Brinda said...

Thank you, Alex, for putting Tempting Fate on your post this week. I appreciate it so much. :)

Unknown said...

I'd love a new Ironman movie, and "Face Off" is such a cool show!

Congrats to Brinda, Terri and Gwen!

Good luck with the GR Q&A. Yay for mums and miniAlex, but--erm--not for mantises. Eeeek!

Anonymous said...

I love that picture of mini-Alex. What are the odds of a praying mantis just waiting there for you to snap his picture?

Well, Alex, thanks to you, I'm addicted to FaceOff. I have one sitting on the DVR waiting for me to finish watching it. I'm amazed by these people and their talents!

Take care and have a great weekend!


Nicki Elson said...

Ooh, that praying mantis is cool! Peanut butter is the very best. I've never had it on pancakes...must try...

Congrats on the new releases, everyone!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Sounds like some movie awesomeness is in the works! And yes, Mini-Alex should make more appearances. That is a cool pic with the praying mantis. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Trisha, you got three!

Ivy, I will!

Matthew, you rock!

Kirsten, awesome!

Karen, yes it is.

Chris, that made me laugh! And you got half right.

Jeff, he better not!

Roland, that is so underhanded.

Patricia, I can help with that.

Robin, your mom is awesome.

Fran, she's a fan then?

Susan, that mean I have to travel though...

Kelly, that's more than most!

Rachna, you are cool.

LG, you got it.

Brinda, you're welcome!

Elise, you're welcome! Such a great show. I'm now betting on the cake decorator to win.

Kristin Smith said...

Haha! Yes, Mini-Alex should make more appearances!

Peanut butter on pancakes is yum...but if you want to take it up a notch, spread the PB and then pour syrup over—your tastebuds will be in heaven (oh, and if you throw in a few chocolate chips in the batter, your mouth will really be having a party!) :)

Misha Gerrick said...

I was super excited to hear about the possibility of Spidey joining the MCU. That could be seriously awesome. :-D

JJ said...

I thought I was up on modern music, but your trivia section did me in. I don't know any of them! I guess I'm ready for Pleasant Acres farm.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

I liked the Flash! Kept imagining you cheering him on. Congrats on all the new books.

Julie Dao said...

Oooh, those are nice flowers! Can't wait to hear what song inspired your book!

Pat Tillett said...

I like Robert Downey Jr. okay, but I wonder if he said why they are going to do it. I'd love to see something original, every now and then.

Did you know that Praying Mantis kill and eat humming birds? I didn't until recently, it's a pretty barbaric process.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Ninja Alex should go to the Death Star next and I hope Downey keeps playing Stark since he's the soul of the Marvel Universe.

Blue Grumpster said...

Peanut butter is awesome? Okay, I'll take your word for it.

G. B. Miller said...

I love peanut butter, but because most commercial peanut butter is loaded with sugar (on the average about 13g per serving), I use natural, which of course no self-respecting child would eat, 'cause it ain't loaded up with sugar.

The Inner Sibling

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Kristin, I do both! Party on.

Sorry, JJ! I tried not to pick anyone obscure.

Joylene, he almost moves as fast as I do.

Pat, wow, I had no idea. How do they catch them?

Maurice, I'll see what I can do!

GB, that's right. It's like breakfast cereal - no sugar, what's the point?

Toi Thomas said...

I can't even begin to think about Sony and Marvel working together. If they pull it off, who know, Hollywood may figure out a way to actaully match and line the entire Marvel Universe they way it in in the Comics. :D
Music Trivia is not my thing, but it'll be cool the seen the answers.

Anonymous said...

Face-Off is my favorite reality show besides Amazing Race. We don't have cable, so I catch up on SyFy at the gym.

Leovi said...

Flying in a Blue Dream, Joe Satriani immense!

The Armchair Squid said...

Love the praying mantis shot!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Milo, such a great show!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Congratulations to all the book releases!

I love mini Ninja Alex! Too much fun!

Anonymous said...

Yay for being on a shelfie. I enjoyed Brinda's first book in that series.

I love mums, although a ninja kind of stands out against them.

I just saw Gone, Girl after having read the very excellent, superb thriller. All other movies pale before its magnificence at the moment. My type of movie.

Great to see the blogger books keeping on coming!

Movie trivia I can do, but not so much music trivia.

I liked The Flash, too! I'm glad there was a short villain arc for that episode, and a hint at something bigger.

Looking forward to the Book of Life! For the grandboys *ahem*
