This New Theme…

Hey guys, you may have noticed that we’ve changed the theme of the blog and i realize it’s actually a little hard to read some of the content, and we’ve tried our best to change as much as possible (some of the more recent posts shouldn’t have this problem) but if there’s something we’ve missed out or it’s still hard to read or there’s any problem at all (links that don’t work, dud videos, whatever), just drop us a comment and we’ll have it fixed ASAP. 😛
btw the comments button is the little thing on the footer panel just below each post, in case you’ve missed it.  🙂

Thanks!


Spider-Man 4… Without Tobey Maguire

Yup, you read it right… Spider-Man 4 without the trademark face.

Tobey Maguire is being replaced in Spider-Man 4  by Andrew Garfield (Air, I’m Here, Never Let Me Go).

Andrew Garfield

Before Andrew Garfield was named the new Spidey, he had some pretty tough competition going, with Josh Hutcherson, Logan Lerman, Jamie Bell, Alden Ehrenreich, Aaron Johnson, Anton Yelchin, Zac Effron and the Hollywood hotshot of the moment, Robert Pattinson, all long and short listed for the role. Now that, must have been one tough decision to make!

Spider-Man 4, currently untitled, but known as ‘Untitled Spider-Man Reboot’, is still in it’s early stages of production. In fact, it’s not scheduled for filming till December this year.

You thought that was a bit of a wait? Release date: July 3, 2012.

Yup. July 2012.  Spider-Man fans, we have a long wait ahead of us.

So, what’s the story that’s been stewing in the media for a while now?
To be honest, I was a bit confused myself, so I did my homework and look what I dug up…

When they say reboot, Sony really means reboot. We’re talking Peter Parker back at high school, a complete reboot of the franchise… new cast, meaning bye-bye Tobey Maguire (as mentioned before… 😦 ) and bye-bye Kirsten Dunst (I think she’s getting a little old to play the high school MJ but all the same, we’re sad to see her go).

Not only are the classic faces gone, but also the classic Spider-Man director Sam Raimi. The new film will be directed by Marc Webb and scripts written by James Vanderbilt, along with Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. There are assumptions that the reboot will be based on the Ultimate Spider-Man comics. Those are the rumours floating about, after creator of comics Brian Michael Bendis met with the movie crew.

Sam Raimi

And what brought this reboot on? Rumour has it that Raimi withdrew after claiming he wouldn’t be able to make the movie’s 2011 release date and maintain the high creative and quality standard expected of any Spider-Man film.

Fair enough, I reckon.

“Working on the ‘Spider-Man’ movies was the experience of a lifetime for me. While we were looking forward to doing a fourth one together, the studio and Marvel have a unique opportunity to take the franchise in a new direction, and I know they will do a terrific job,” said Sam Raimi.

Sony has also confirmed that the Spidey reboot will be in 3D, so that’s something to look forward to as well.

I’ve summed up what I know and if you want to enlighten me with any more goss on this issue, please go ahead, I’d love to hear. 🙂 After all, we’re huge Spidey fans here at Ebony Ink!

Spider-Man Reboot...

Drop a comment and let us know what you think… Maguire/Garfield, Raimi/Webb… we wanna hear what you have to say!

Prologue

SETH!!!!”
The silence of the house replied to my un-ladylike shout.
“SETH! You f***ing MORON!”
No reply.
Cautiously I stepped in to Seth’s dark lounge. Everything was dark. When I got used to the dark, shadows of the scattered debris on the floor, along with the presence of the second hand sofa, made themselves slightly visible. Seth’s lounge was very tiny but as messy as a rubbish dump. There was only a long three seater couch, a small, broken television and a small ornament rack which had his keys, a photo of me and last night’s dinner on it. Seth was a slob.
I turned toward the door and searched for the light switch. I found it and switched it on but the light didn’t flicker on. Either bulb wasn’t working or he had forgotten to pay the bills. The latter seemed more possible. Sighing, I turned back to the lounge. Only then I noticed a bigger figure on the lounge. Anxiously, I crept closer. Yep, it was Seth, sleeping when he was supposed to pick me up for our date.
I found a candle and a matchbox on the table that held the keys and photos. In it’s light I saw Seth properly for the first time in the last two weeks.
Ohhh…he slept like a baby. Golden blonde hair tousled unkemptly under a handsome face that, even in sleep, showed his wild side. He was hugging the rugged cushion to himself and looked absolutely cute and at peace. The exact reason for my rage.
I put my hands on his shoulders and shook him as hard as I could.
“WAKE UP!” I shouted.
He jerked awake like someone had punched him on the face (something I barely restrained to do). Baby blue eyes widened as he saw me. For a second he looked confused. Then he sat up, grinning ear to ear.
“Hey, Shweet Shiya!” he exclaimed, removing my hands from his shoulder and standing up as I straightened up. “Why are you dressed up? Headed to a party?”
I had to clench my fists to stop it flinging toward him to beat him up.
“No”, I said, through gritted teeth. “I’m waiting…”
He looked up from trying to straighten out his very messy hair. “Waiting for what?”
That did it.

Ebony Update

Hey everyone!

We hope you had a spook-tacualar Halloween! (Yeah, okay, I know it’s the most overused and cheesy line everrrr)
We just want to update you on what’s happening on the blog for the next few weeks. We have our end of year exams coming up so we’re, let’s put it like this, ‘taking a break’. But don’t worry we’ll be back on with brand new stuff (we’re adding a few pages and making some others redundant) because after the exams we have… HOLIDAYS!! (NZ, Southern hemisphere… yeah, we get a looooong Christmas/Summer holiday meshed into one. And as weird as it is to you Northern Hemispherers we celebrate Christmas in the summer…! Which is good coz we’re real BBQ people down here) =] ). If you have exams coming up too and would like some tips, check out our How To Survive Exam Prep post (just type it into the search and hit enter…!).

Right, so back to the point… We’re (as you might know already) giving Ebony Ink a makeover!! Which means we’re changing it totally. We’ve already managed to give it a brand new look in between studying our brains to mush for the exams, and now we’re going to change the content too. We think we should let you guys know what’s coming (and going), because after all the blog is all for you. So here’s how it goes:

  • We are getting rid of our Books, Movies and Music page, so say goodbye to that!
  • We are considering removing the Embarrassing Stories page
  • We will be adding a Quotes page
  • We will add a pictures/photo page
  • We are still working on the layout and look of the blog (of which 50% is done but there is still room for tweaks in that 50)

If you have any comments/suggestions/questions you can drop us a comment and we’ll be sure to get back. Or you can email us on ebony_ink@live.com (we won’t spam your email or use it for… I don’t know… dodgy stuff or anything! We’re trustworthy people).

So have a good time while we suffer and struggle through hours of torture in the examination room… =( BUT we’ll be back with all the new stuff we’ve promised (more or less… we might decide to make a few changes =P) but ultimately you guys are in on the plan!!


We’re giving Ebony Ink a Makeover (finally)

We’ve been thinking about it a while, and now we’re finally putting it to action. We’re renovating the blog, TOTALLY so bookmark us and check back, you’ll find something a little less haphazard and a lot more fresh.

Please help us out by doing this quick poll, any suggestions/comments are much appreciated! =)
It’s only a couple of minutes but it would help us A LOT!! (sorry about the bad format. i’m not on good terms with this thing today)


 

Announcement to make!

Sorry about the huge space out during the last few weeks.

Anyway, I decided that another blog was just too much work for me (hey, I’m a teenager, I’m lazy- we’re wired like that, what can you do?) so instead I replaced it with something slightly more low maintenance:

Our very own, very cool, very inky social networking site on Ning. Click the link and join or just check out our page for a dose of Ebony Ink on Eboink!


Meebo/IM Us!!!!!!!

HEY GUYS! (and girls) <– I feel obliged to add that in because every time I say that at least one person finds it absolutely CRUCIAL to point out their gender or call me sexist… -.-

So, anyway, the reason I’m posting this up is because I think there isn’t a lot on the blog for you to get to know us by, and I also think you have to go through SO much stuff just to post a comment and it’s extremely frustrating…

What we did: If you look on the sidebar you’ll see that we’ve added a BRAND NEW, SUPER SHINY Meebo widget!! =D

What this means: YOU can talk to US without giving us your IM or any sort of personal details, or have to wade through the Name: (required) and Email: (required) hassles before posting up a comment. The best thing is, it’s totally private and you don’t even have to give your name away. And don’t forget that you can leave us offline messages and we’ll be sure to check them.  =]

We’re hoping to hear from you, so don’t be shy, say hello!!


Ideas Ideas Ideas!

Hey guys,

we have a problem! We’re out of ideas on how to improve the blog, and considering it’s you guys who read it, we’d like some advice on how to improve it from YOU! What would you like us to put on that we havent already, what we can add or replace, some of the cool stuff we should continue with, what needs more improvement…you catch the drift. We dedicate a lot of time and effort into the blog (even though it may not seem as though we do, but hey, we’re a couple of 15-year-olds, with tons of homework) and the blog is still in its initial stages. And while I’m at it I might as well add; people open up, put on your own embarrassing story in the Embarrassing Stories Page! They can’t be that bad, right? So bear in mind that it can be ANYTHING that you want to read about, more Disney stuff, something cool new or crazy, anything at all! So PLEASE help us out, give us some ideas on what you like, coz we’d really appreciate that!

DON’T BE SHY! Drop us a comment with some much needed advice or share a moment with us that you are likely never to forget! 😀 (I’m looking forward to those… 😉 )

btw this post will be up top for a bit so scroll down for the latest post!
