What I’m Listening To: The Boxer

Before beginning I would like to offer an apology for my absence. I can’t remember if I had mentioned it before, but I have Crohn’s Disease and have been dealing with a flare up over the last couple of months, and have been responding to treatment pretty well. The last few weeks have been more [...]
TMNT 2012

Variations on a Theme: TMNT

It’s time to go back to that good ol’ Ninja Turtle well! Premiering this weekend, Saturday, September 29th on Nickelodeon, is the newest version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or TMNT if you’re into acronyms. Though the Michael Bay abomination has been tabled for the time being, we can still [...]
Chuck Jones

Character Art: Chuck Jones

I can’t believe I missed this! Yesterday was Chuck Jones’ birthday, which would have made him 100 years old! Sadly, Mr. Jones is no longer with us, but his work continues to influence animation, comic books, and the comedic sensibilities of several generations. And though Chuck was most well known [...]

When Noise Shark Met Think About The Ink

Here it is, everyone! Last week I talked comics with Grace Randolph who does a bunch of videos on YouTube and Bleedingcool.com. We talked about Avengers vs X-Men #11 and Uncanny X-Men #18 and we also discussed the relationship between Cyclops and Emma Frost. Thank you so much, Grace! This was a [...]

In His Defense: Cyclops

Oh, Scott. Scott, Scott, Scott, Scott, Scott. You’re not gonna make this easy, are you? I’ve always been on your side. I’ve always defended you in the face of those who seem to think that Wolverine is the end all be all of the X-Men. I’ve always said you’re far more complex than people give you [...]

We at Noise Shark have decided to honor such an event by showcasing artwork made for or inspired by these characters. This is also a bit of a teaser to a couple of forthcoming [...]

My Guilty Pleasure: Whistle by Flo-Rida

This weeks guilty pleasure also comes by way of Nof and his amazing wife Jillian. They brought the song to my attention a couple of weeks back and I’ve been on the fence about it. It’s a catchy song, sure, but is it really a guilty pleasure? So, I’ve been doing a lot of commuting lately and have [...]

Asylum of the Daleks

La Femme Critique: Love in the Time of Doctor Who

There have definitely been some rumblings following Asylum of the Daleks, the seventh series opener of Doctor Who. For all of its 45 minute run, the episode presents a lot of interesting ideas along wih a couple of twists that are both heart-breaking and head-scratching. The loudest voices appear [...]
MICHAEL CLARKE DUNCAN OBITUARY

Only the Good Die Young: A Tribute to Michael Clarke Duncan

As Billy Joel correctly put it, “only the good die young.” Today another one did. Michael Clarke Duncan has a character actor staple for the past three decades. In my opinion, he added significantly to all of his projects, whether it was Michael Bay’s Armageddon as Bear or in his Oscar-nominated [...]
