Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a comment on my 5000th entry.  As promised, I will be selecting three random winners – say, Friday – for our extra special zoom call.  And who knows?  If it goes off without a hitch and no one ends up seriously injured, I may do another one down the line.

Over on twitter, I’ve joined the #30DayComicsChallenge.  Each day, I answer a comic-related question and post my answer in the form of a comic book.  Questions like “What was the first comic book you ever read?” or “What comic book would you recommend on a date?”  The other day, it was…

Quick!  Name the episode!

Meanwhile, came across this interesting concept art the other day.  In the likely event you’re looking to build your own gate…


Food-related question of the night.  How do you prefer your burgers cooked?  I was watching this last night…

And was quite captivated by Goldburger’s smash technique of really flattening out these corners for maximum crispness.

Okay, tonight’s film-related question of the day is…

  1. I can’t name the episode but I’m reminded of the time I saw the dummy of Sean Bean as dead Boromir lying in the boat when he gets sent down the river and over the waterfall. That thing was so realistic!

    I tend to prefer my burgers thick and medium rare but am not averse to the occasional smashed and crispy one every now and them.

    Gotta agree with you on the Zardoz outfit. What were they thinking?

  2. Worst wardrobe decision in a movie? The really scary thing about that picture is that I actually know what that movie is (Zardoz for anyone wondering) and that the actor is James Bond himself.

  3. Those burgers look delish. Just a good old fashioned cheeseburger or double cheeseburger with iceberg lettuce, tomato, mustard, ketchup, pickle, and a little mayo on a non sesame seed bun.

  4. Thanks for sharing the video and concept art.

    As for the wardrobe question, I doubt anything I might throw out there would even come close to Sean Connery in your post, so I’m not even gonna try. The only thing I’ve ever seen that was similarly awful was Harvey Keitel in ‘The Piano’. I did not need to see him standing there in the altogether. I haven’t watched him since.

    Burgers with crispy edges and corners are good with raw onion, lettuce, cheese, mayo, and sauteed mushrooms on a warm, fresh, lightly toasted bun – like they are served at Five Guys. At home, thick, juicy, just done burgers on the outdoor grill are the norm. Yum! I never turn down a good burger.

  5. Happy 5000th! Sorry I missed it but it looks like you have a lot of candidates.

  6. There’s a restaurant straight out called Smash Burger. It’s better than Five Guys and has a more interesting menu. Looks like there’s one near Toronto.

  7. I like a thinner burger well-done. A slice of Swiss. Then cooked onions, lettuce, tomatoes. With mayo, ketchup and yellow mustard.
