As a fan from the ‘60’s, when Marvel was the underdog upstart, I’ve taken some satisfaction from the way they’ve become a dominant force in pop culture, though at this point things may have gone too far. Still, Marvel was a big part of my youth, and Stan was the guy who really made it happen. He’s taken a lot of criticism for hogging credit from his artistic collaborators, particularly Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, but Stan was the one who coordinated the whole thing, maintained continuity, scripted a prodigious number of books each month, and set the overall tone; no one else did more to give Marvel its particular personality. Quite a legacy for a guy who was pushing 40 when the ball got rolling with the Fantastic Four in 1961, and who was still active into his 90’s. Face Front!

20 of 25 at trivia last night and we came in fourth! ive already forgotten the missed questions.
two were jeff goldblum related. what movie does he kick a three legged dog? and what 2002 movie did he play somebody's godfather? might have been a little more to go on for the second but nothing really helpful. i guessed the answer to the second as the answer for the first.
what michael jackson video was partially shot in the hoyt-schermerhorn subway station? a bonus question (bonus questions are for a free round of shots) asked what young director made the madonna vogue video?
one question named a character from human centipede which was the answer. just figure no one has seen that. maybe theres a horror buff out there.
final missed question -- what was the 2002 kevin bacon movie inspired by an hg wells property in which he plays the part of sebastian caine. the category was mad scientists?
i got us a free round of shots on the bonus question -- who wrote dr. faustus?
question from trivia night for LOTR nerds - who cut the ring off sauron's hand?
bonus question for guitar nerds - what band did bassist and lead sing phil lynott front?
At a farm stand near us in CT they keep a list of all birds seen on the farm on a blackboard. Nice idea. Thought Alex would enjoy it.

“Let's be clear about this before any nonsense starts. M6.2 quake just now offshore Oregon is not related to the Pacific "Ring of Fire", nor does it indicate a sudden activity increase. The quake is caused by horizontal transform faulting out in the Pacific -not a subduction event”
