Summer Glau practicing fight choreography for the movie, Serenity (2005). Her kicks are amazing for not having any martial arts experience. She only did ballet. It makes me wish that more ballerinas got into martial arts. Their flexibility is perfectly suited for it.
Realtor plans to remake Suburban World theater as retail
The Suburban World theater, the well-placed, historic, but little-used landmark in Uptown, might get a new occupant. But it might see a bunch of sledgehammers first.
The Star Tribune reports that the city’s Heritage Preservation Commission will consider a proposal next month from Realtor Jesse Olson, who wants to “renovate the Granada Theater into a retail store.” Granada was the original name for the theater; it was renamed in 1954.
Renovation would include restoration of the exterior and the removal of a kitchen area and the slanted floor. Olson wouldn’t comment further on redevelopment plans.
The theater’s historic status has been something of a roadblock for prospective buyers.
Forget when I took this, but the construction you see next to the theater, became the Uptown Apple store.
Ugh, because clearly what Uptown needs is more indistinguishable chain-stores. Not theatres, culture, or unique spaces that differentiate us from every other city in the United States of Commercialized Monoculture. /sarcasm

It’s A LOT of Marvel ladies drawn by Amanda Conner for a variant cover of Fearless Defenders. How much would I love if DC let Conner do a cover with the all their ladies.
Also I’ll add I’m happy to see Colleen Wing here.
I really want to see this as a print, so I can put it up in my office next to the She-Hulk/Iron Man arm-wrestling match. Amanda Conner, thank you. For showing the Marvel Ladies as the strong, fabulous creatures that they are.

“Woman?” She chuckled. “Is that meant to insult me? I would return the slap, if I took you for a man.”
