Jerry Siegel and John Sikela, Action Comics #105
On this day in music history: November 3, 1962 - “He’s A Rebel” by The Crystals hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 2 weeks. Written by Gene Pitney, it is biggest hit for the New York based girl group. The song is originally written for The Shirelles who will turn it down. Producer Phil Spector will hear the song and immediately wants to record with his group The Crystals. Spector soon discovers that Vikki Carr has already recorded it (with producer Snuff Garrett), and is about to be released as a single. The Crystals are on tour at the time on the east coast and are not available. Not wasting any time, Spector has Darlene Love & The Blossoms record it instead, but releases it under The Crystals name. Cut at Gold Star Studios in Hollywood, CA with members of The Wrecking Crew, the single is rush released in late August of 1962. Entering the Hot 100 at #98 on September 8, 1962, The Crystals version will shoot to the top of the chart eight weeks later, while Vikki Carr’s bubbles under at #115. Carr will not debut on the Hot 100 until September of 1967 with her breakthrough hit “It Must Be Him” (#3 Pop).
Superman will wrestle all comers!
Steve, Tony can’t handle all your sassiness.
The best thing about this is notable alcoholic Tony Stark telling someone “admitting you have a problem is always the first step”
Doing a bit more work on Stark, my Ludum Dare entry.
Its kind of turning into an interactive flash movie, rather than a true game. I’m just letting this one turn out how it turns out, no need to worry about the outcome - which is a nice change.
Seriously, Niall Taylor is a name you are going to know in a year or two. Unless you already do know it, I guess.
TV ANNOUNCER: Now stay tuned for professional wrestling live from Springfield Grappelarium. Tonight a Texas death match: Dr. Hillbilly versus the Iron Yuppie. One man will actually be unmasked and killed in the ring!
HOMER: I hope they kill that Iron Yuppie. Thinks he’s so big
After I doodled up Glam Rock Batman, Chris Haley put a wish out to the universe for a Freddie Mercury Superman. I know, Queen is arena rock, we’ll get through this together somehow.
So, in Japan, The Fast and The Furious movies are called ‘Wild Speed’.
In fact, they are called Wild Speed, Wild Speed x2, Wild Speed x3, Wild Speed MAX and Wild Speed MEGA MAX.
Wonder what #6 will be…
This is amazing, and makes more sense than calling your first film The Fast and The Furious, and your fourth one Fast and Furious.
Still think they should have went with The Fast and The 4ious.
