As always, it has been an interesting week here in the Ninja Lair. Most notably we seem to be chalking up epic fails in the worlds of comic books, gaming and movies. Sure the there’s the obvious ones like the Yogi the Bear movie, or Spider-Man’s new costume and then there are the fails on epic scale.
First, according to the Dallas Observer, it was a bad day for the Rebel Alliance when an “experimental” aircraft with Rebal Alliance markings made a hard landing in Dallas. The article goes on to hazzard a guess that odds are the pilot was shot down by Darth Vader — that, or “the landing gear collapsed,” explains Jose Torres, spokesman for the city’s Aviation Administration.
Torres says the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate, but of course; so far the hard landing hasn’t made it to today’s listing of Preliminary Accident & Incident Data. “Since it’s an experimental aircraft,” Torres says, “they need to investigate who put it together and talk to the owner.” Torres says it didn’t impact Southwest’s air traffic at Love Field. He also noted the plane will no longer be able to make the Kessel Run this weekend.
Moving on, and who couldn’t predict this epic fail, yet more disasters for the Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark Broadway production. Yet another actor has nearly fallen to their death. The only thing dropping quicker is the moral of investors who ponied up $65 million dollars for this terrible idea.
According the the New York Times, after an actor performing in the Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” was injured during a performance Monday night, the show will postpone its scheduled matinee on Wednesday and resume performances on Wednesday night, according to a statement from a spokesman for the production. The actor, Christopher Tierney, was said to be in serious condition at Bellevue Hospital Center on Tuesday. Read on at the New York Times.
