Is it summer yet?

Here is a brand new trailer for the Thor movie that debuts May 6.

Also, in case you missed it, here is the TV spot that ran during the Super Bowl for Captain America: The First Avenger (opening July 22).

I have a love-hate relationship with super hero movies (my top ten), but ever since I saw Iron Man, I've been geeked for these self-made Marvel movies. And, man, do these two look good.

I can't wait until 2012 when they put Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and the Hulk all in the same movie: The Avengers!

I wrote a lot of poems in my younger days. Here's one from many years ago that I've dusted off just in time for Valentine's Day. (Which is Monday, by the way - don't forget!)

This is good stuff. Hand-write this in your card to that special someone and thank me later. ;)


If there were an artist inside me

I would copy you however I could

With a paintbrush I’d capture your image on paper

With a chisel I’d free it from bronze, stone or wood

Never tiring of you as a subject

My greatest ambition would be

To reproduce with the tools and the palette at hand

The tiniest part of the beauty I see

But alas my hands are unable

My artistic training too poor

Of the elements needed to create such a work

I have desire and nothing more

Yet color me happy as ever

Despite limitations with art

For I have the priceless, inspiring original

…And you have all of my heart!
