As he tends to do, Warren Ellis offered up his thoughts on Muammar Gaddafi this morning, and he summed up the Libyan leader's response to protests there better than anyone else in the Twitter Report feed.
Although there was some lighter buzz today about the Kevin Costner "Superman" reports, the Knicks' Carmelo Anthony trade and the Facebook Breakup Notifier app, Libya and the earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand, definitely dominated discussion. Thoughts on all of these topics and the lasting legacy of "Spider-Man 3" await you after the jump.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is your Twitter Report for February 22, 2011.
@warrenellis Gadaffi's speech seems to boil down to "Everyone is on drugs except me. Also I am Batman."
-Warren Ellis, Writer ("Planetary," "Transmetropolitan")
@incogvito Josh Matthews referred to Venom as, "Spider-Man with angst." Sigh...that damn Spider-Man 3 movie strikes again. #wwe #raw
-Vito Delsante, Writer ("FCHS," "Stuck")
@Templesmith Hope everyone in NZ I know is ok. ( + everyone else ) Horrible news for all you guys. Australasia has had a battering lately.
-Ben Templesmith, Writer/Artist ("30 Days of Night," "Welcome to Hoxford")
@jerwa Costner's in the Superman reboot? I'm seeing a lot of Pa Kent thoughts, but I'm going with Jor-El.
-Brandon Jerwa, Writer ("Highlander," "Battlestar Galactica")
@KatzMoney John Cena just told The Rock to "blow him." I suppose the TV-PG rating has gone the way of the dodo.
-Jeff Katz, Writer/Producer ("Booster Gold," "Freddy vs Jason vs Ash")
@robertliefeld Carmelo to Knicks is good trade for New York. Hopefully they can load up and create more chaos in the east.
-Rob Liefeld, Writer/Artist ("X-Force," "Youngblood")
@mrmarkmillar I'm working on a kids book this morning and so absorbing everything I ever loved on TV via youtube to power up my all-ages batteries.
-Mark Millar, Writer ("Wanted," "Kick-Ass")
Deep Thought for the Day:
@granulac I really hope the Breakup Notifier is a trap that instantly warns the person you've just creeped on.
-Meredith Gran, Writer/Artist ("Octopus Pie")
