news on the march

Welcome to Monday’s News on the March – The week that was in my digital world.

Article by Bruce Goodman at Weave a Web:

I suggested to Bruce the opening sentence of this story. It still makes me chuckle when I reread it.

He lived on hills resembling ‘The Shire’ and his feet were covered with curly hair. His name was Bartholomew Baggins and his solo mother always said that his father was a hobbit. He thought it was a big fib, but now that he’d reached puberty he began to suspect, with his hairy feet, that what his mother claimed was true...… (read more).

Movie review by Reely Bernie:

Two grown men are stranded on a remote island with flatulence abound. This is not going to be a popular mainstream movie.

Add black and white photography, an alien dialect of 1890s New England, and the claustrophobia of a shoddy lighthouse, most Marvel Comic Universe fanatics will tear their hair out..Read more

        Yea it was a limited release but they did open it up to more but it might be a while before it makes it’s rounds.
