Pearl Jam In KC

It's been a couple of weeks since the great Pearl Jam played Kansas City. I went to the show and had a great time. They were fantastic as usual and one of the highlights of the show was the ballad Off He Goes. It was just fantastic. Courtesy of Youtube member MrBubbrub is a video of the tune shot from pretty close to the stage. A great Pearl Jam moment.

Stark Expo 2010

I saw Iron Man 2 this weekend and liked it quite a bit. Although all the comic book action with Iron Man and War Machine fighting Whiplash was cool, my favorite part of the movie was the Stark Expo scenes. Patterned after the 1964 New York World's Fair, the Expo was a neat backdrop for a lot of the action. This cool site explains a lot about the fake expo and includes a lot of great images of past expos, including these great posters celebrating expos gone by.

I especially like this one, which is very reminiscent of the 1964 World's Fair, of which I am a big fan.

If you enjoy comic book movies and liked the first Iron Man, you'll enjoy the sequel. If you're like me, and like comic book movies and world's fairs, you'll really enjoy it.
