Mu On Mo #50 – Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

December 10, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Sometime ago, I was on this train.

& there, sitting in front of me, was another person.

Who asked me a question.



“What topics will your blog deal with in the new year ?”

The answer to that, of course, is… none.

Apocalypse.



Buuuttttt, if I had to guess I suppose there would’ve been more.

Yes, both more of the same & more new stuff too.

Perhaps even Lou Ferrigno pics.



Still amazes me so many people (all looking for his pics) end up here where there are none to find.

I wonder, could they all be a lil’ …you-know-what ??? O_O

Hm, that reminds me of a fun song which got the following comment on YouTube…





“Great, and sadly overlooked song, from the Seventies….Very clever…What would the neighbors think?? Great line…”






2 guys doing stuff together.

What WOULD the neighbours think ?

Enjoy, you know you want to…













Fixing him a drink, that was Jim Stafford – My Girl Bill.

See you another time for more Music On Monday ?

…that’s if we’re still around.

This Time… It’ll Really Work !

October 15, 2010



I suppose it was only a matter of time until it finally happened.

An announcement was made & now the Jade Giant, the Green Goliath, the one & only Hulk will return.

Yet again.



No no, this isn’t about his appearance in “The Avengers” in 2012.

It’s another solo effort for the incredible one.

But what’s really incredible is that Marvel apparently doesn’t know when to call it quits.



Why are they so keen on continuing to peddle the (sofar-not-so-incredible) Hulk franchise after so many previous attempts did not generate successful results ?

None of the past Hulk cartoons had a long run & the latest one “Hulk: Gamma Corps” was cancelled while still in the pre-production stage.

Meanwhile, the 2 recent live-action movies both, for different reasons, failed to really capture the interest of Joe & Jane Moviegoer.



Ok, cartoons didn’t last & movies didn’t work.

So… what’s left ?

Well, apparently a brand new live-action TV series ?!?!



While the original 70s TV series starring Bill Bixby & Lou Ferrigno was eventually cancelled, it was & still is the most successful incarnation of the Hulk outside comics.

Bring back the original intro & outro themes, add some realistic looking CGI & this might just work.

Oh & while you’re at it, introduce a certain female cousin who practices law…



Jen Tells It Like it Is


A Special Message For A Special Someone

February 14, 2010



It’s the ’80s.

CBS airs a successful TV series starring Bill Bixby & Lou Ferrigno.

It is called “The Incredible Hulk”.



However, this success & the fact that “The Six Million Dollar Man” TV series lead to spin-off “The Bionic Woman” leaves Marvel Comics with fears that sooner or later a female version of the green monster will be introduced.

Not wanting to lose ownership for this hypothetical character, Stan Lee & John Buscema create her origin for Marvel…



Since her 1st appearance back then, she’s had 3 comic series of her own, multiple appearances in other comics, guest roles in cartoons & even rumours of her starring in a live action movie.

Hopefully someday.



February 2010 marks her 30th anniversary.

That is a milestone event & nothing in the entire Universe was going to keep us from congratulating the world’s sexiest, sassiest & strongest superheroine.



From everyone here at X-Mer, sincere congratulations on this sensational anniversary of yours, Jennifer.

May your success continue to shine for another 30 years & more…






Congrats Jen !


American Hulk X

April 16, 2007

Upcoming movie “The Incredible Hulk” has found itself a leading man.

Edward Norton IS Dr Banner but not until the 13th of June in 2008. Unlike the previous Ang Lee effort, this movie is to be more in the vain of the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno TV-series.

Can a She-Hulk movie be far behind ???
