Damn. So, apparently Spider-Man 4 is a dead deal. It was bug-sprayed. Stepped-on. Swatted. Flushed down the ethers of possibility.
“Best. Ever.” is a weekly conglomeration of things that made my week. And there was much rejoicing. This week, Ghost Rider 2 will be moody, the Oscar hosts have been announced, two of my new favorite games, Google’s Dashboard, and Max Barry’s Machine Man goes to Hollywood.
