We get a dash of hippie with a touch of ’70s disco shirt in this still from X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Btw, I owned that album back in the day.

Velvet Goldmine

How Bowie is this?

I’ve been a fan of Jonathan Rhys Meyers ever since he David Bowie-ed his way through Velvet Goldmine — if you haven’t seen that movie, you should.  It’s a thinly disguised, sort-of bio of the Iggy Pop, David Bowie relationship during the height of Glam Rock…and besides JRM, it has Toni Collette, Christian Bale and Ewan McGregor, with McGregor in the Iggy Pop role.  It’s also the movie that first earned McGregor his reputation for “showing it all”.  Meyers was also the reason I religiously watched The Tudors.  Even though I knew that series took some liberties with historical fact, Meyers, et al provided a fun and talented romp through Henry the VIII time.  Plus it also starred Henry Cavill, our newest Man of Steel, and turned me into a fan of his as well.  I was pretty happy when I found out Cavill was picked for MOS.  All in all this is turning into a good fan year for me.  NBC has just released the first trailer of it’s new tv show, Dracula, with JRM as the lead character.  And yes I’m a Dracula fan.  Bram Stoker’s novel turned me into a Victorian novel afficianado when I came to appreciate those Victorian writers’ flare for creating a particular kind of creepy atmosphere.

While looking over the Star Wars titles on edelweiss, I noticed a book called Fan Phenomena: Star Wars. It looked interesting: a bright orange cover with a Vader silhouette, a publisher I’d never heard of, and the selling point “first ever book addressing the Star Wars saga holistically”. Looking further into the publisher, I noticed that they have a whole series of Fan Phenomena books: Batman, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Twin Peaks. All of them are set to be released in July 2013.

The Star Wars version will be roughly the size of a standard Star Wars hardcover novel, but will be in paperback format and 132 pages in length. The book will take a look at fan culture and its various aspects. According to Intellect LtdContinue Reading Book Spotlight – ‘Fan Phenomena: Star Wars’…
