Captain America's Message to Fox News
In anticipation of the new Captain America movie, I recently watched the 1944 serial starring Dick Purcell as Grant Gardner, district attorney, who also happens to be ... Captain America! So where's Steve Rogers? And Bucky? And his mighty shield? And World War II? And the wings on his helmet? Good questions, all. At least there's this WW II-era poster on the wall of one scene:
NO ROOM FOR RUMORS. How has the left not used this slogan, not to mention the poster itself, against Fox News and all of its rumors? Seriously. Someone needs to plaster this thing over Roger Ailes' mouth. We need to say it every time Bill O., or Karl R., or any of the countless rumormongers on that network get going. Let's face it. If the WWII-era slogan would appeal to any demographic, it would appeal to Fox's demographic.

Such logical stretches are what I have long forged in the smithy of my soul.

I like the long shadows from the tall buildings in midtown.
And this from a schmuck with an 3-year-old iPhone. Imagine if it was someone with a professional eye and professional equipment.

This is a pre-CGI shot of the epic battle between Thor and Hulk in “The Avengers” movie from 2012:
So at least we know Chris Hemsworth's biceps are real. Full video on here.
