The devastation in the Philipines is just unfathomable. I had an opportunity to talk with Biv Malibago and Yvette Hoyme from the Rochester Philipine-American Association. Biv will be heading to the Philipines to assess conditions and needs there and be back in time for a benefit fundraiser at Century High School December 22nd. More details will be posted on the Phil-Am website. Here's our conversation ~

A judge in Nashville is letting songwriter Amy Bowen ask that very question! She goes by the stage name Lizza Connor, and she claims that she wrote the song "Remind Me" that was a hit for Brad Paisley with Carrie Underwood. Her claim is that she wrote the song, played it around nashville and showed it off, and it was ultimately stolen. Hopefully, this will get resolved so that everybody wins.

So, the sequel to Man of Steel is going to be called Superman VS. Batman. Henry Cavill's Superman will be facing off against Ben Affleck's Batman. Word came out yesterday that Gal Gadot from The Fast and the Furious films has been cast as Wonder Woman. A friend gave me the first The fast and the Furious, and I still have to make time to watch it. I probably will now, since Paul Walker's passing. He was a pretty good actor.
In case I haven't mentioned it yet today, I'm a huge comic book and sci-fi geek. I'm a Batman fan. My wife, Cathy, kinda rolls her eyes and they tend to glaze over with boredom when I tell her about this stuff. But, I'm kinda excited about this sequel. I think this is what Henry Cavill's reaction was to the news that Batman and Wonder Woman will be in his Superman sequel...
