Anonym fragte:

“How come you give Man of Steel a hard time about destruction when The Avengers, and pretty much most comic book movies, have similar or equal levels of destruction? Where is the line between acceptable and unacceptable destruction?”

brianmichaelbendis:

1st of all. I don’t think that the avengers had anywhere near the damage to the city that man of steel showed. man of steel made very specific references to 9/11 visuals.

 but beyond that it’s suspension of disbelief. remember the scenes early on in the 3rd act where Capt. America started barking orders to everyone to help save people. it gives us the impression that the avengers give a shit about us and are actively trying to save us.

 while I got no such sense of anything like that from man of steel.  in fact they seemed to go out of their way to create the opposite impression.

sz-gefaellt-mir:

Mama singt, Kind weint - so lässt sich dieser Clip am besten zusammenfassen. Das Besondere dabei: die singende Mama ist auch noch stolz auf die Reaktionen der Kleinen (10 Monate alt). Sie führt die Tränen nicht auf die mangelnde Qualität ihres Gesangs zurück, sondern auf die emotionale Intensität: “Du spürst den Schmerz in diesem Song, Süße”, fragt die stolze Sänger-Mutter am Ende.

Das Netz jedenfalls findet Gefallen an den Babytränen. Der Clip verbreitet sich aktuell sehr schnell und Menschen überall finden Gefallen an der Geschichte von Mary Lynne Leroux, die den Gesang ihrer Mutter Amanda kommentiert. 

Der Song stammt übrigens im Original von Rod Steward und heißt "My heart can’t tell you no".

"Sir, you must turn off all electronics."
"OK."
"Sir, please turn off the camera."
"Ma’am, it doesn’t turn off, and it doesn’t turn on."
"I’m sorry sir, but all electronics must be turned off until the Captain turns on the overhead lights."
"Ma’am, it was built in 1938. It isn’t electronic. There is no On or Off, it’s completely mechanical."
"Sir, I’m afraid you’re just going to have to put it away."

I will go into a book store next saturday, August the 17th, and buy three of those books. One for each of my sons and one for my own bookshelf. Perhaps i’ll buy one or two more to give them to some of my kids friends.

What would be cool now: If a lot of parents would do the same on that day. Or get it at Amazon. Or buy it for your eReader. I don’t know how many book must be sold on one day or week to really make an impact on a bestsellerlist and it’s perfectly possible that i see things too easy. But it doesn’t really matter in the end because a lot of kids will get a great book that calls attention to an important issue and provides a lot of details about the world they will eventually live in when they grow up.

Because it’s not only a thriller for kids. It’s a manual for handling surveillance and how to avoid it. And i believe that our kids such a manual can be very useful.
