George Lucas sells Lucasfilm to Walt Disney, Star Wars 7 on the way

Posted: 31 Oct 2012 02:45 AM PDT

More development with the mega franchise "Star Wars" as George Lucas accepted the deal of selling Lucasfilm Ltd. to Walt Disney Company.

The deal is reportedly $4.05 billion and the next installment (Episode VII) is slated for 2015 release.

The 68-year-old visionary, who will also serve as a creative consultant, announced his decision:
"For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next. It's now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I've always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime. I'm confident that with Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, and having a new home within the Disney organization, Star Wars will certainly live on and flourish for many generations to come. Disney's reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products."

Nikki Reed Talks Hair, Aging and Makeup

Nikki Reed Talks Hair, Aging and Makeup | nikki reed celebrity quotes

On having beautiful hair:

"My mom's a hairstylist and she's always told me 'don't over-wash your hair — the less you wash it the better' so I wash my hair maybe once or twice a week, so I use a lot of dry shampoo."

On aging:

"I saw I have some wrinkles coming. I'm going to be 25 soon, I'm like, 'what's going on, so this is happening now?' so I've started putting a little eye cream on too."

On make-up:

"I'm really simple when it comes to make-up. I like to look like I'm not wearing any make-up. I don't like it when girls do a full face when they're going out to lunch. I really just use concealer. I really think it's important to let young girls know that they do not have to wear a full face of foundation. I love bareMinerals, I love their brushes too."

… says Nikki in Glamour Magazine.

$5 MP3 Album Deal: Cream ‘Goodbye’

Posted: 30 Oct 2012 08:00 PM PDT

Cream Goodbye

Goodbye, the final original release by the Brtish hard rocking trio Cream, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.

Cream epitomized the term "supergroup" as their thunderous sounds via the lead guitar of Eric Clapton, and the bottom end scud attack of Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker (on bass/vocals and drums respectively) continue to thrill and inspire classic rock heads to this very day. By 1968, Cream was one of the biggest bands on both continents, with their nicely blended sonic mix of electric blues, rock and roll, and psychedelia. By 1969, the release of Goodbye became their swan song as a group. Even though the band found much success, internal tensions had a hard time keeping the three men together, let alone cordial. Goodbye is a mix of live and studio tracks, some well known: "Badge," "Politician," and "Sitting on Top of the World" and equally strong yet less remembered tracks like "Doing The Scrapyard Thing" and "What A Bringdown" round out the collection nicely. A fitting end to another one of Britain's A-list rock and roll groups from the class of the late 1960s.

$5 MP3 Album Deal: Rush ‘Moving Pictures’

Posted: 30 Oct 2012 04:14 PM PDT

Rush Moving Pictures

Moving Pictures, by the Canadian power trio Rush, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.

Moving Pictures is Rush's Led Zeppelin IV, their Dark Side of the Moon. From its literal and colorful album cover to the diversity and complexity of the songs included within, 1981's Moving Pictures is the record that really propelled Rush in the stratosphere. This is the record that brought Rush to the masses, finally having the band rise above its already strong cult. Almost every track has been played on the radio and in concert countless times, "Tom Sawyer," "Red Barchetta," "Limelight," and the instrumental "YYZ" are key examples. For most casual fans of the band, this remains the one essential record to get bar none.

In 2009, Disney shocked the world by purchasing Marvel Comics. While many were worried that the comic property would be Disneyfied, in the years that the Mouse House has owned it, nothing has really changed. Now Disney is making yet another large acquisition that no one could have ever seen coming.

Disney has bought Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. This is the biggest thing to happen to the studio since Alan Horn took over the motion picture department. But this also means that there will be some corporate restructuring for Lucasfilm. According to THR, current co-chair Kathleen Kennedy will be demoted to president of the studio. However she will serve as the executive producer of the long-awaited Star Wars: Episode VII, which is scheduled to be released some time in 2015. [...]

In the world of licensed comics, there's the good, the bad, and the awesome. Sometimes a writer loves the franchise a little TOO much, and more often than not, that leads to bad comics. In other cases, the writer knows NOTHING about the franchise and that leads to a lack of proper characterization and messy story lines. Then, there's cases where the creative team is dead on perfect for the property and everything meshes into a beautiful blend of a great story, awesome art and it makes pretty much the perfectly enjoyable comic book. Thankfully, MacGyer #1 is that comic. [...]
