My feet are all better.  By Friday afternoon, there was no discomfort at all, and I have learned an important lesson about maintaining a level of activity.  My next vacation from 100 Midland Avenue will involve lots more walking, that's for sure.

The Lexington Horsemen beat the Bloomington Xtreme Saturday night, advancing to the UIFL championship game.  They'll play the Sioux Falls Storm, who are heavy favorites.  The game was very good, and much closer than the final score (67-49) indicates;  Horseman Rayshawn Askew broke Jerry Rice's pro football record for touchdown receptions.

Jon Favreau had a clip from the Iron Man movie at the San Diego ComicCon this past weekend.  I got to see it before it was taken down;  it looks incredible.  Again, Robert Downey, Jr., would never have entered my mind as Tony Stark, but now I can't see anybody else.  In the clip, the armors look incredible - there are three distinct suits, starting with the cobbled-together Gray Armor, a quick shot of a red-and-gold, and then a flight sequence with another red-and-gold suit playing follow-the-leader with a pair of F-22s.  Quick shot of Jeff Bridges as Obadiah Stane, and Avi Arad confirmed rumors that Samuel L. Jackson and Hilary Swank will have cameos as Nick Fury and Natasha Romanov, respectively.  Also, Audi has gotten in on the promotions for the movie - Stark's ride is a R8.

Have handed off the Viking Hat for a while again.  I'm going to spend a few weeks working up something of a setting guide for The Effect.  It has suffered from a lack of direction and definition.  Aaron M's going to take over running in the interim, and I am certain that the game is in good hands, quite possibly even better than mine.

Only ten years after it was released, I finally bought (and read, even, to my shame) Kingdom Come, mostly to prep for the upcoming "Thy Kingdom Come" arc in JSA, wherein the KC Superman appears for a while.

17 days until GenCon.

Red-and-gold Iron Man armor has been spotted here.

This is a thing of beauty.

USA Today has an article and picture here.  Downey looks the part.

First look at one of the Iron Man armors from the upcoming movie.

Oh, I am very pleased.

A quiet and fairly dull week so far.

Picked the animated Iron Man DVD this morning.  Watched most of the supplemental material before heading to work - the Dr. Strange trailer looks pretty nifty.  Planning to go home and watch the movie itself tonight.  And work on Mutants & Masterminds.

Planning to go to Louisville for the Great Train Expo this weekend.  I'm going to make myself not spend money there.  Will probably spend it at Colin's store, instead.

Finished reading Conspiracy X Second Edition last night.  Interesting stuff, and worth investigating further.  Started in on World War Z this morning.

Suit up.

According to Variety, Robert Downey, Jr., has been cast as Tony Stark in the upcoming Iron Man movie.  Wouldn't have thought about him for the role, but I do like it.
