Jersey Boys Trailer

The film serves as a biopic of Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi and their hit singing group, telling the meteoric tale of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before they were thirty.

My Office

Superman needs his Fortress of Solitude and Batman has the Bat Cave. We all need a favorite space to relax, reflect, write, read a book, watch a movie or showcase a favorite collectible or souvenir.

Maybe it’s a game room, library or secret space hidden by a moveable bookcase that leads to a man cave.

I’ve always been curious what curios J.J. Abrams keeps close by, what books fill Stephen King’s shelves, what collectibles does Patton Oswald possess, what artwork lines Jim Lee’s walls, how many toys fill John Lasseter’s Pixar office and what movie memorabilia does Steven Spielberg showcase? Perhaps someday I will find out!

The answers would reflect the owner’s personality, interests, accomplishments, etc. Equally as fascinating to me would be how the items were displayed.

So, I thought I would let you into my world and show you my office and give you the nickel tour.

I wanted my Southern California office to reflect my varied interests and showcase some of my favorite things.

I have collected Stephen King books since 1983. He’s my favorite author and I’m also a fan of his son, Joe Hill. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting both authors on numerous occasions and they are wonderful talented friendly people. The bottom shelf of my bookcase is filled with oversized art books featuring the work of Walt Disney, Jack Kirby, Jim Lee, Alex Ross, Todd McFarlane, Charles Schultz and Tim Burton.

IMG_9958 IMG_9959  IMG_9966

My Funko Pop! Batman collection guards my graphic novels. Batman is my all-time favorite comic book character as reflected in the art, toys and books in my work space.

IMG_9962

Some of my prized collectibles are an original Batman ink commission by Brazilian artist, Rafael Grampa (I also have his Batman Black & White statue), a signed Adam West Batman photo, a signed Drew Struzan Stephen King Dark Tower print and a series of Jock letterpress Batman prints signed by the artist.

IMG_9946

A fun 3D light up replica of Iron Man’s mask appears to be bursting through my wall.

I also collect posters, many of which are from MONDO, a boutique art gallery based in Austin Texas. They release limited print runs of pop culture posters that are lovingly rendered by amazing artists. Some of my cherished prints are based on the Universal Monster movies by Francesco Francavilla, Star Wars by Tyler Stout and The Incredibles by Tom Whalen. Another favorite piece is my Batman Rogues Gallery print set by Olly Moss; With only a few simple brush strokes the UK artist cleverly captures the essence of the Joker, Poison Ivy and the Riddler.

IMG_9947 IMG_9955 IMG_9967 IMG_9971

The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller from 1986 is my favorite graphic novel so I had to pick up this statue of Batman vs. The Joker by Kotobukiya. I was a huge fan of both the original Batman TV show and the Batman Animated series so the 1966 Batmobile and the vinyl Animated Batman figure are prominently displayed.

Businessweek Cover Story: The Pow! Bang! Bam! Plan to Save Marvel, Starring B-List Heroes

BBW_Marvel_Cover_970x1292

Kevin Feige is one of the more shrewd and successful studio heads of his generation. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens today and is likely to do better at the box office than Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel’s first film about the patriotic superhero, which grossed $370 million.

He produced them both. And he’s considering a third. Feige’s films aren’t groundbreaking—they rely on epic showdowns at major landmarks, set to Carmina Burana-style angelic choruses, and the force of computer-generated graphics is strong within them. Still, they feel like a refreshment of the genre, so much so that instead of diminishing returns, Marvel’s sequels make progressively more money.
