The Bangor Brothers

Stephen King and his son Owen created the G.I. Joe/Cobra character Crystal Ball!!!!!!!!!!!!

 “It was his [Owen’s] idea! He had all the G.I. Joes and we watched it on TV, and we read the comic books.  He said, ‘Dad, it would be great if there was a G.I. Joe who could read minds.’ And I said, ‘Oh, yeah, that would be really great. What would you call a character like that?’ And Owen said, ‘Crystal Ball!’

Stephen King, who pitched the idea to Hasbro, who then made it a reality, and even had King write the file card bio for the character!

 

Hasbro returned the favor by giving the character/figure Sneak Peek the civilian name Owen King, from… Bangor Maine!

yo Joe!  and yo Kings too!

Never had seen Tommy Wiseau‘s The Room.  Always meant to, but I guess I failed as a moviegoer to do so before seeing the movie about the making of it – The Disaster Artist.  What James Franco does with the poor-rich material, directing and starring in it, is both a masterstroke and a masterpiece.  It is perhaps one of the best films ever made about making movies.  The horror show will, against all odds, warm your heart, and the immersive, intimate experience will make you feel like you were actually there (squirming, like those who lived thru it).  You cannot escape The Room that Franco & friends (brother Dave and LITERALLY an amazing cast of THOUSANDS!!!) construct before your eyes.  You don’t need to provide a hammer, cause these guys NAILED IT!!!  Oh, hi Mark!

Disaster is perfection at a theater near jews and white nationalists
