Lost: What we STILL don't know
But, the thing is, it's not a very attractive figure at all, is it? Artist Darwyn Cooke's take on GL is cool. But this thing looks odd. What's up with his face? This is not good at all.
It's up for auction now on eBay (and way, way beyond my price range).

Due to overwhelming support from the fans, Mattel and Target are teaming up to bring an all new Collector’s Line to store shelves starting this August!
16 brand new figures along with collector requested repaints and reissues will be available in singles, 3-packs and 6 packs. Figures will be out in two waves. Each wave will consist of two 6-packs, two 3 packs and five single carded figures, some with brand new accessories. This line will be sold exclusively at Target stores starting Aug 1, 2008. At this time the line will be an in store exclusive only.
Wave 1 will be revealed at New York Comic Con in April and Wave 2 will be shown at Comic Con San Diego in July.
We are pleased to show the first 6-pack for Wave 1: Attack from Apokolips featuring Superman, Darkseid, Mr. Miracle, Lashina, Mantis and Forager.
Along with these figures, we are excited to announce that the line will also include several major MIA characters including The Question!
On the island, Locke is at loose ends. He can't find Jacob's cabin or contact Jacob and is uncertain what to do next in terms of leading the survivors who are following him.
He goes to Ben, locked in a cell under the barracks, to learn more about the freighter crew, but Ben isn't revealing anything. He knows Locke is confused is seems to be planning how to best use this to his advantage.
Kate, meanwhile, is torn between Locke and Jack's groups. She wants to go home, but fears she'll end up in prison if she does. She goes to Miles, also a prisoner of Locke's, to find out if the freighter crew and, by extension, the rest of the world, knows she is a fugitive.
Miles says he'll tell Kate everything he knows about her, if she brings him to Ben. Kate manages to do this by enlisting Sawyer to distract Locke.
When Miles and Ben get face to face, Miles says "you know who I am, you know who I work for," and Ben says yes. Miles says he could help Ben by telling this mysterious person that Ben is dead but to do so, Ben must pay Miles $3.2 million.
Ben seems annoyed at Miles' crass maneuver and doesn't agree to anything. Kate is annoyed too, and yanks Miles out of Ben's cell, at which point Miles tells her that the outside world knows all about Kate's crimes and that, if he were her, he'd stay on the island.
In flash forward, we see Kate didn't follow that advice. She's in court, facing charges for murder, obstruction of justice and many more charges. But she's also a celebrity, one of the Oceanic 6. The jury is impressed when Jack testifies on her behalf. He tells a false story about the plane crashing into the sea and Kate helping to rescue him and other survivors.
Kate's mother also is moved by this, and the fact that she evidently has a grandson. She decides to to participate with the prosecution and the state, having lost their key witness, cops a deal. Kate stays free, but she must remain in California on probation for 10 years. Kate readily agrees with this.
After she's freed, Kate and Jack meet in the courthouse parking garage. He makes it clear that he wants to be with her, but when Kate invites him to her home, he defers. He doesn't want to see her son. Kate says she knows this is hard on Jack, but until he can make peace with it, they can't be together.
We then see Kate arriving home. She goes upstairs to see her son, who looks to be at least 2 or 3 years old. It's not really her son, although he calls her "mom." It's Claire's baby, now older, Aaron.
Back in island time: Jack forces Charlotte to call the freighter. Although the helicopter carrying Sayid, Desmond and Frank left the island hours ago, it hasn't turned up on the ship.What happened to it?
Also, Locke is angry about being fooled by Kate. He tells her she needs to leave the next morning, which she does, much to Sawyer's consternation. Locke also pays a visit to the capture Miles, sticking a live grenade in his mouth and telling him to keep his mouth shut.
* What led to Kate's caring for Aaron? Is Claire dead? Why is Jack struggling with this? Does he know Claire is/was his half-sister? Is he somehow responsible for her death or absence?
* In court, Jack says only eight people made out of the plane. Two of them "died." This is the official cover story, anyhow. So the Oceanic 6 is: Jack, Kate, Hurley, Sayid and who else? Presumably, we're not counting Aaron, as he wasn't born yet and not a passenger on the plane. So far as the rest of the world knows, Aaron is Kate's real son, born after the crash. Are we counting Michael and Walt? How about Desmond? He was on the chopper with Sayid.
* According to the cover story, who is Aaron's father?
* The book Locke brings Ben to read is "VALIS" by cult sci-fi author Philip K. Dick. I read this years ago, but don't remember a thing about it, only that it was a tad hard to get a grip on. Wikipedia says:
VALIS is the first book in the VALIS trilogy of novels including The Divine Invasion (1981), and the unfinished The Owl in Daylight. The Transmigration of Timothy Archer (1982) is thematically related to the unfinished trilogy and was included in several omnibus editions of the trilogy as a stand-in for the unwritten final volume. Together with his thematically related final novel, VALIS represents Dick's last major work before he died. Radio Free Albemuth is considered an earlier version of VALIS, and is not included as a component of the VALIS trilogy.
* According to some fans, the book Sawyer is reading (I couldn't see the title, maybe other fans recognized the book's cover design) is "The Invention of Morel," a sci-fi novel that according to Wikipedia:
...shares some elements with the 1934 novel XYZ by Clemente Palma and with the better known The Island of Doctor Moreau, being the later the most influential of the two (see "Characters" below.) In the same way, other works of fiction share some elements with this novel rather than with the novels that influenced it. For example, fans of the video game Myst believe this novel is one of its sources of inspiration, while the plot of the episode "Dave" from the television program Lost mirrors one of fugitive's theories--that he is on a psychiatric hospital dreaming he is on an island.
* Hurley puts the 1980 Olivia Newton John movie "Xanadu" in the VCR. The theme song--an annoyingly catchy disco-ish effort by John and ELO--has lyrics that possibly could be used to comment on the island and/or Sayer and Kate's relationship:
The love that we came to know
They call it Xanadu
Open your eyes and see
What we have made is real
We are in Xanadu
A million lights are dancing
And there you are
A shooting star
An everlasting world
And you're here with me
* Xanadu is also of course, as Wikipedia puts it "a metaphor for opulence," the inspiration for Samuel Taylor Coleridge's most famous poem and the name of Charles Foster Kane's estate in "Citizen Kane."
* Does the weird time anomaly account for the helicopter not turning up on the freighter yet?
* How does Ben have access to millions of dollars? And how does Miles know he does?
* Sawyer plays backgammon with Locke. In season one, Locke taught Walt how to play the game.
* What's up with Charlotte testing Daniel's memory with cards? Or is it really his memory that's being tested? Maybe she's trying to see if he can predict which cards she picked. Is she testing whether the island has affected/enhanced his mental abilities in some way?
* How long is Locke gonna leave that grenade in Miles' mouth?

Lost: What we STILL don't know
David Fincher is attached to direct the horror romance "Black Hole" for Paramount/ MTV Films.
...the story revolves around a group of high school students whose lives are drastically altered when they come in contact with a sexually transmitted disease called the "teen plague" or "the bug."
...Fincher ("Zodiac") just wrapped "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" for Paramount. He also has "Torso," "The Devil in the White City" and "The Killer" in development at the studio.
Leonardo DiCaprio is set to produce two films based on Katsuhiro Otomo's manga/anime series "Akira."
The story was set in a neon-lit post apocalyptic "New Tokyo" in 2019 where a teen biker gang member is subjected to a government experiment that unleashes his latent powers. The gang's leader must find a way to stop the ensuing swathe of destruction.
Beyonce Knowles will play singer Etta James in "Cadillac Records," a film about the founding of Chicago's Chess Records label.
Knowles joins a cast that includes Adrien Brody (Chess), Jeffrey Wright (Waters), Cedric the Entertainer (Willie Dixon) and Columbus Short (Little Walter). Emmanuelle Chriqui and Tammy Blanchard co-star.
The Wall Street Journal has revealed a few details about the next "Toy Story" film.
In Pixar's coming movie "Toy Story 3," Woody the cowboy and his toy-box friends are dumped in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, leaves for college.
The Foo Fighters are suing Marvel Studios.
Per the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, "substantial excerpts" of the tunes "Best of You" and "Free Me," both off the 2005 album In Your Honor, were used in a teaser for the upcoming animated series Wolverine and the X-Men.
It's one of my favorite albums (and if you don't yet own one of its many incarnations, you need to), but do I want to buy it all over again?
At least with this belated 40th anniversary edition (the LP came out in 1967), Rhino is upping the ante with loads of outtakes, studio tracking sessions, demos and the like.
Let's put it this way, I'm thinking about it...
The new edition comes out April 22. Here's the track list:
01 Alone Again Or
02 A House Is Not a Motel
04 The Daily Planet
05 Old Man
06 The Red Telephone

21 Laughing Stock
Of course, the character depicted isn't the X-men's Ororo/Storm, but a woman with the same name. And the script is by Len Wein, who would use the name Ororo a few years later when he and artist Dave Cockrum created Marvel's New X-Men.
I love this sequence from Phantom Stranger #10 of a nasty fellow who has just literally scared his nagging wife to death by placing a rubber crocodile in the swimming pool. The facial expressions, sound effects and motion lines tell you all you need to know about the violence occurring "off-camera."
The releases are all 2-DVD sets due out Nov. 11, 2008:
“Destino,” began in 1946 as a collaboration between Walt Disney and the famed surrealist painter Salvador Dali. A first-hand example of Disney’s interest in avant garde and experimental work in animation, “Destino” was to be awash with Dali’s iconic melting clocks, marching ants and floating eyeballs. However, “Destino” was not completed at that time. In 2003 it was rediscovered by Walt’s nephew, Roy E. Disney, who took on the challenge of bringing the creation of these two great artists to fruition. In addition to the completed “Destino”, this exciting addition to the Walt Disney Treasures line also includes an all-new feature-length documentary that examines the surprising partnership between Dali and Disney plus two new featurettes; “The Disney That Almost Was,” an examination of the studio’s unfinished projects; and “Encounters with Walt,” which addresses the surprisingly diverse group of celebrities and artists who were attracted to Walt Disney’s early work.
“Dr. Syn, Alias the Scarecrow,” which first aired as three separate episodes on Disney’s weekly TV show under the title “The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh,” was edited for theatrical releases in England and the U.S. This DVD set includes all three of the original TV episodes plus the theatrical version of the film that was released in England.
“Chronological Donald, Volume 4,” which includes 31 classic shorts starring Donald Duck. Each of these meticulously animated adventures was created between 1951 and 1961 and has rarely been seen. All of Donald’s CinemaScope shorts will be presented in their original widescreen aspect ratio for the first time on video.
Number of titles featuring:
Iron Man: 11

I'd never heard of it, but apparently the short-lived show also spawned a short-lived comic book from Dell!

Superman’s Cape and Belt!
These life-sized, high-quality, mixed-media replicas of two of the most important pieces of Superman’s costume each feature authentic secret compartments! The lined, red fabric cape features the S-shield sewn meticulously onto the back, while a hidden pocket is sewn into the lining of the cape for Superman to quickly stash any of Clark Kent’s personal effects! The accompanying faux-leather yellow belt fastens with a metal buckle that opens to reveal another secret compartment. Both pieces of this prop replica set can be displayed from the metal wall display shelf included, with the cape hanging from the bottom and the belt sitting on top.
Packaged together in an 4-color box, the cape measures approximately 56” long, 53” wide at the bottom and 20” wide at the top, the belt measures 36” long, and the display shelf measures approximately 22” long x 3.25” high x 5.25” deep.
