So get this, there's going to be a Tenacious D movie. And that's cool enough in and of itself, right? But guess who's going to be directing it. Liam Lynch of Sifl and Olly fame!! What kind of crazy, world where dreams come true kind of world are we living in?!

I know some of you are planning on seeing the Daredevil flick tomorrow night, so here's a review of it if you're inclined to read reviews before you see movies. The best way I could review this movie is by telling you that I look forward to seeing it again.

While I'm on the subject of Marvel movies, apparently there's a new trailer for The HULK available.

If you're a Marvel Comics fan, this will probably be pretty cool to you.

Hip Today reached 8000 hits at some point last night. Thank you all very much. Feel free to tell a friend. This means that 10,000 is possible, and that's pretty cool if you ask me. Now if only something had been purchased with everyone of those hits...

This has nothing to do with what I was just saying, but as far as I'm concerned Rachel Leigh Cook is the prettiest girl that ever lived until someone can prove to me otherwise.

Speaking of Ben Affleck and Daredevil, guess who got to see a sneak preview of the flick last night a full 3 days early? Yes, that would be me. My total thanks to Tara for asking herself the question, "Who do I know that loves Ben Affleck and Daredevil and is really excited about seeing the movie about Daredevil starring Ben Affleck?" I mean, I can only assume that's what she asked herself. Not that you necessarily give a rip about my opinion, but I liked it an awful lot.

In other superhero news, thought he's said he doesn't care for superheroes, Guy Pearce is the prime candidate to play Batman in the new Bat-flick for director Christopher Nolan (Insomnia, Memento).

Also, since I know there are some Freaks and Geeks fans among the regulars here, you might be interested in signing this petition on the official Freaks and Geeks website.

You know, it just occurred to me that people that are new to this website might not get that my thinly veiled allusions to being in love with Ben Affleck are only half serious. I know some of the pictures of me here on the site might make you think otherwise, but I am, in fact, not gay.

In case you didn't know, I've got Daredevil (as drawn by me and colored by AlexPower) on the frontpage in celebration of the Daredevil movie being released this Friday, which also happens to be Valentine's Day. I can't think of a better Valentine's gift to myself than an evening with Ben Affleck.

I don't know what time the Blogger thing is going to say this was posted at, but it's 4:48 AM and I'm having trouble sleeping. I'm not sure why though. Anyway, while I'm here though, the next song on the list (and I'd appreciate it if someone would tell me what number we're up to) is "Flesh Into Gear" by CKY.

The new Ninja Turtle's cartoon premiered this weekend, and though I didn't get to see it, let's all celebrate by reading this review of "Christmas with the Turtles."

Sony Pictures has put together a pretty good site for the upcoming Hellboy flick. If you like Hellboy you'll probably like it, and if you don't know who Hellboy is then you should go here and find out.

There will probably be a new official Hip Today shirt available in the very immediate future based on a scenario Adam and I imagined me missing out on. I'm hoping that it will be a rousing success among the lovely ladies that frequent this website.
