Focus: 2011 Sendai Earthquake and Tsunami

We’ve noted several articles, photographs and videos in the time since learning of the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan last week. If you follow our Twitter(also noted to the right side of this Newsmine) you’ll get some of this information real-time.

Now here are the other links we’ve noted in the last few days.

Help Japan
Signalnoise created a Help Japan poster(which is now sold out) in order to raise money for disaster relief.

Canada: Text REDCROSS to 30333 to donate $10
USA: Text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10
Ireland: Text REDCROSS to 57500 to donate €5

There is a Reuters article that suggests if you want to help Japan that you should focus your efforts on the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders or Save the Children.

We leave it to you to decide how best to contribute aid.

More photos, videos and articles under the cut.

The @OldSpice Guy( @IsaiahMustafa ) Wants to Be Luke Cage. @Marvel, Make This Happen.

It appears Isaiah Mustafa is hitting critical mass. His hilarious, energy infused, Old Spice commercials has gathered enough fans that Old Spice, the company, continued the series.

We began this Mustafa post a few months ago. This was the first time his commercial gained popularity. Over the months we’ve gathered more information on the commercial and the man himself. It is time, faithful reader, for another post overload.

The Isaiah Mustafa Campaign to Be Luke Cage
Traveling cartoonist, Ryan Estrada, tweeted and drew this to Mustafa yesterday.

Marvel Studios, consider the following a casting reel for Mustafa as Luke Cage.

Overload: Disney Buys Marvel for $4 Billion. Did You Hear Disney Bought Marvel? Disney+Marvel = BFF

Delaying a time-sensitive blog post is never a good idea. This, almost never, stops us from doing just that. One week and a day later, we’ve amassed a monster list of everything Disney/Marvel related from that time. More posts on the matter will follow. For now we offer fair warning, this is a biggun’.

“Face it, Tigger, you hit the jackpot!” —@BrianReed

It was all anyone remotely associated with comics could/can talk about. Our TweetDeck’s ‘comics’ filter can attest to that. Some fanboys and comics professionals greeted the news with bear hugs of love or at least their facsimile of this. The rest jumped out of their knickers.

Now that the dust has settled a bit, creating a Link Overload of the Disney/Marvel related conversation seemed like the thing to do.

Mr Joke Funny People

so I got this phone call from Joe Quesada and it was just the sound of him rubbing himself with money and now I am confused–@WarrenEllis

Jokes were made. So many jokes. People just wouldn’t stop with the jokes. Then came the many, many image mashups.

Wherein We Watch the WATCHMEN Watch You

The golden week has arrived. The time when all of the lowly citizens of this great nation get to sit back and judge… THE WATCHMEN. In the time leading up to this comics/cinema magic, we’ve kept a close eye on the viral marketing strategies the PTBs unleashed upon us. In no particular order, of the ones known to us, these are the favorites:

Since sex is the fuel that drives The Internet’s engine (at least it is according to the GNET’s MyBlogLog stats) we’ll start in the obvious places.

The official Dr Manhatten condoms.

Vulture breaks the shocking news that not only is Dr Manhattan really naked in WATCHMEN, but he now sports a large, circumcised dingus, unlike the small, uncut version in the comic. Says a spy:

There is indeed shitloads of blue wang. And it’s huge.

Lit-crit or no, Vulture, if “blue wang” is all you care about regarding faithful adaptations, then “blue wang” is all you’re gonna see.
