The Dark Knight Returns Part 1

25 Sep

Here’s a nice rundown of this upcoming release Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

MSRcast and Metal Geeks Unite!

Real quick before you read on, there are some spoilers in this article. I don’t think anything in here will be a shock considering how old the comic version of The Dark Knight Returns is. If you haven’t read it, shame on you all I can say. You’ve really been missing out of something special.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller is the best Batman comic ever published in my opinion. When it came out Batman was transformed from a campy detective to a complete badass. In the comic, super-heroes become outlawed in the United States and Batman retires. Over a ten year period Gotham becomes worse and worse.

Apple Launches iTunes in Philippines and Other Asian Countries

26 Jun

Apple just announced the launching of iTunes in 12 Asian countries including Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan. iTunes will carry a large option of music from major and independent labels from the Philippines. This will give people in the Philippines opportunity to also download music, apps, books, movies, podcasts, and tv shows.

There will be more opportunity for artists from the Philippines to get their music out to an international audience. I just looked up a few artists from the Philippines such as Kyla, Nina, and Juris Fernandez. I was not able to find these artists before on iTunes but now I can. For artists living abroad, this will also give them more exposure to Filipinos living in the Philippines as well.
