logoHey everyone – Happy Independence Day week for you US listeners.   I hope you all have a happy and safe 4th of July.   Jason and I are both traveling this week.  I’m in Amer’cas heartland and Jason is overseas.   Today I ate my weight in BBQ and then went and bought $100 in fireworks that are covered in popular copyright infringed characters so, God bless America!

We’re in much better spirits this week having worked through our “Man of Steel” emotions.   Thanks to everyone that wrote in with your thoughts and opinions, no matter where you landed with the film.
