Spider-Man swings onto Broadway


This is an amusing video from the 2010 Tony Awards. Host Sean Hayes dressed up like Spider-Man and started singing. Then reveals Spider-man the Musical is coming to Broadway this season.

This may be news to some, but it was announced a while back. Music and lyrics are provided by U2’s own Bono and The Edge. It is also being Directed by Julie Taymor whose best known work would probably be Across the Universe which was the Movie/Musical that used music from The Beatles to tell its story. To find out more info you can check out the official Spider-Man on Broadway website.

I know as a Comic book Geek and a Drama Geek I am hoping this does well enough that they go on Tour like a variety of other Broadway Musical’s and Plays do. I also wonder what could be next. Hulk the Musical? Maybe even Dark Knight on Broadway? Time will only tell.

Hulu on XBox live?

Hold still my beating heart. Could it be true? Hulu on Xbox live(XBL)? Well according to Gearlive.com its a done deal. Just have to wait for them to officially announce it at E3. Sadly it looks like it will not be free, I’m still hoping they go the netflix route with free as long as you have a gold account. I guess we all will find out soon enough. June 14th at 10:00 AM PT. to be more specific. That is when Microsoft will kick off their E3 press conference. Many questions are still asked,but I’ll be glued to my sofa that morning awaiting for all the goodies Microsoft has to offer. Let us know what your E3 predictions are in the comment below.

Google search with Pac-Man!

Google has always been creative with their images above their search bar. We have seen many images related to holidays and other events such as the Olympics. Today is the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man and Google has outdone themselves yet again. If you visit Google you can actually play the classic Pac-Man game where the image would be normally. With this done I am just left to wonder what else Google has in stored for us this year.
