2. SDCC ’15: Alex Ross portrays Seth Meyers and The Awesomes cast as live action heroes


Not everyone realizes that Seth Meyers, Rashida Jones, and Taran Killam are already playing superheroes – the trio, along with a cast list that reads like the credits for an episode of Saturday Night Live, voice original heroes on the Hulu animated comedy series The Awesomes. But Meyers was able to merge the characters’ off-screen faces with their on-screen costumes with the help of artist Alex Ross.

“Our dream is to present this show as the show that stars these people,” said Mike Shoemaker, co-creator of the series. “So the idea to have somebody who can put their faces in – I didn’t think it would happen, but he did it… he took it and just made everyone real.”

Killam said he and Meyers are both huge fans of Ross’s work.

Kingdom Come is one of my favorite graphic novels, for lack of a better definition, and he’s my favorite artist,” he said.

The cast joked that the painting could springboard a live-action episode, and while Meyers said it would be unlikely due to scheduling conflicts, he would like to do a table read with the full cast (fortunately we won’t have to wait long to see Ike Barinholtz in a live action role, as he’s set to appear in the upcoming Suicide Squad film).

Meyers said in addition to having flexibility to book high-profile voice talents due to the nature of animation, doing the series for a company like Hulu, rather than traditional network television, puts less pressure on individual episode ratings.

“I think it’s really been exciting for us to be on Hulu,” he said. “In the network world, the next morning you always find out the ratings and things like that. It’s really refreshing to live in a world where it’s more about building subscribers and content.”

The Awesomes seasons 1 and 2 are available on Hulu, and a third season will debut this year.

7. Puppicasso Predictions #22

Taking the Hair of the Dog today for a work hangover — the cure for one job by doing another and another and another.

Puppicasso and I worked too late last night on our day job….

Pupp uses the floor at work for support.

Many people have different theories about how to cure a hangover.  With the football playwoofs over, and the teams for the Super Bowl in place, many losing fans are probably trying to nurse a few self-inflicted wounds with their own version of the HOTD.

For Puppicasso, it is simple:  there is nothing that shopping, stale popcorn and Dublin Dr Pepper can’t cure.

Dr Pup Dublin Picasso

He especially loves the imperial cane sugar in this blend of the soda drink.

He imbibes another cold Dublin.

He was very sad to find out today that the Dublin plant was closed forever last week.


Now, he wishes he hadn’t drunk those two bottles so quickly.  He knows that some formulas for success and great flavors don’t come around that often…  Planets and Minds and Hearts have to align just so.

Puppicasso knew that the ultimate cure for too much work in my life was for me to take on another project.

This one was a great hair to put on ye’ ol’ career wounds that I had been nursing:

(Puppi enjoys taking hangover cures back to those Shakespearean times when that guy kept coining words and phrases. Who did he think he was anyway, Shakespeare?)

Pupp is a Pure Bibliophile.


The cure came to me over a post-wedding breakfast in Tuscon.  That project was Book Club which just premiered on Hulu today at 12:00 A.M. !

Noah Longo, Jessica Runck, and Katey Kowalik (the producers and directors of the series) are the type of folk that you want to work for — ones that appreciate and respect your time, energy, and ideas.

So, Puppicasso generously let me interrupt his blogging for a shameless plug of the series:

14. Viewing: How It’s Done & What Do We Do

Yesterday The New York Times published a series of articles under the umbrella title, Sofa Wars. The focus of the series is on how people watch TV and what might be happening in the viewing/TV industry as more and more viewers move away from cable to other types of services.

Today I read through some comments on a New York Times blog post on the topic of cable vs. other forms of access – Hulu, Apple TV, NetFlix, and so on. I started to think, what does this change in TV access mean to teens? Do we know how teens prefer to watch TV? I know that some are definitely using Hulu and other web-based tools (we can’t forget YouTube) for content viewing. What are their favorite methods and how do these methods have an impact on library programs and services? And, of course, this isn’t really just about traditional TV types of content. NetFlix recently announced a deal which provides the company with the ability to stream a large number of feature films as a part of their Watch Now service.

Do librarians serving teens need to think about this and consider what it means for their collections for teens? Is it still necessary to collect TV of interest to teens on DVD? Or, do we expect that services like Hulu, Google TV, and Apple TV will take the place of DVDs? While I understand that some of these services have a price tag, is the price tag worth the cost in comparison to something like cable TV? Does the ease of access, not having to visit the library to pick up the DVD, outweigh that cost for a teen, or a group of teens who might chip in together in order to view content of their choosing? Does this take the place of going to the movies? Does it take the place of going to a movie at the library?

As I think about this, I wonder, what is the library’s role in providing access to movies and TV to teens? For those who show movies in the library, it’s probably at least in part related to the social experience of watching a movie with a group of people. That being the case, maybe the library needs to sell the viewing experience in that way. The library doesn’t make the fact that you can see the movie at the library the selling point, but instead focuses on the social experience, and perhaps in some cases the experience of watching on a high-quality large display.

Maybe it’s about the opportunities libaries provide teens before or after the viewing. The events a library might sponsor in order to give teens a chance to talk about what they saw, or are looking forward to seeing. Or, the video trailers librarians might have teens create that promote a new season of a TV show they are looking forward to.

The thing is, as viewing behaviors change for teens, and others, perhaps librarians need to think not just about access to the content but instead focus on connecting those interested in the content. It’s not a focus on checking-out content, but a focus on checking-in with teens about the viewing they do. Having discussions, providing outlets for expressing ideas about the content, and
