Guests were invited to the Cutting Room on E. 32nd St., at noon for a three-hour chat between the two and, of course, Stern’s ever-present sidekick, Robin Quivers.

There to perform were Idina Menzel, P!nk, Boys 2 Men and Melissa Etheridge, who rocked the house with a sexy rendition of “Only the Good Die Young.”  Pink, who sat next to her Vietnam veteran father, Jim Moore, sang a duet with Joel to “She’s Always a Woman,” while her father proudly filmed from the audience.

Maine Magazine Interviews Author Joe Hill

As soon as the writer Joe Hill began appearing in public, it quickly became clear that he looks an awful lot like that other Maine horror writer, his dad – Stephen King. 

In order to blaze his own trail, Joe decided to drop the “King” from his name. In the years following this bold move, Hill has published a book of short stories, multiple novels, an award winning comic book series and we will soon be seeing a big screen adaptation of his book Horns, starring Daniel Radcliffe as the demon in suburbia.

Joe took a few minutes to chat with Maine Magazine and you can read the interview HERE.

You can now bid on the pieces by clicking here and all proceeds from the auctions go to the “We Can Be Heroes” campaign to fight the hunger crisis in Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya.

Also during the Man of Steel Fan Event, Snyder issued a few teases for the highly-anticipated movie. The first was this passing comment “Lex loves calling him an alien.” Could this be an indication of Luthor’s involvement in the upcoming film or was it a general character statement?

In addition, Snyder teased that we may see how his “taking care of” General Zod in Man of Steel has affected Superman in the upcoming sequel.

Snyder also mentioned he’d love for composer Hans Zimmer to return for the film, especially given his famous score from Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight Trilogy,” saying: “I think it would be awesome if Hans did the movie because he has that challenge.” When asked previously about his involvement, Zimmer said: “The thought right now is that no, I don’t want to go and take what I did with Chris and just plonk it into another movie.” Remember, he had a change of heart regarding scoring Man of Steel as well. It’s still possible he could return.

Furthermore, rumors began last week that the sequel’s production was setting up shop in Yorkville, IL for some Kent farm scenes and today Snyder was asked if they would return to Plano, Illinois for more Smallville scenes in the sequel. When prompted, Snyder smiled and replied: “I can’t say.”

Batman vs. Superman will feature the return of Henry Cavill as Superman, facing off against Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also starring Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne, Batman vs. Superman hits theaters on July 17, 2015.

102413-neil-gaiman-600-1382649795

Twenty-five years after Neil Gaiman broke through with his classic series ‘The Sandman,’ DC’s Vertigo imprint is bringing it back in a limited run this fall.

“Well, one pretty obvious question that nobody actually asked when the comic book came out was basically why was the Sandman so easy to catch,” Gaiman says of deciding to go back to the beginning of the story now.

Click HERE to read the full Q&A at Rolling Stone. The Sandman: Overture # 1 arrives on Wednesday October 30, 2013.

Do You Want To Know What J.J. Abrams’ S. Is About?

1027-bks-BTB-popup

J.J. Abrams discussed some bits and pieces regarding his upcoming book simply titled S. in this New York Times interview. The book will be released on Tuesday October 29, 2013.

“There is the novel itself (“Ship of Theseus”), which stands alone as its own story, and then there are the notes in the margins: a conversation and investigation and mystery and love story between two people, which is both connected to and separate from the central text. Then, there is the editor of the book, who appears in an introduction and in footnotes. So there were many characters and points of view to balance. It felt less like film or TV, and more like concocting something insane and very special.”

The Hollywood writer, director and producer, and author was inspired by Chris Ware’s work. “His graphic novels have the emotional wallop of a Philip Roth or Thomas Pynchon.”

You can check out the book’s website HERE.
