Lefts on the table.

Last time we talked about film rights, TV rights, and rides and attractions at amusement parks rights, but that is just some of the rights available, as there is . . .

Gaming rights
Both the characters from Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy are now available to be added to the basic Disney Infinity 2.0.

Merchandising rights
Actually, films are now just a means to bet people to buy the tie-ins associated with the films. For example, there are now Halloween costumes available for little boys that include . . .
The Avengers -- Captain America -- Guardians of the Galaxy -- Hulk -- Iron Man -- Spider-man -- Thor -- and Marvel in general.
Priced between $50.00 and $60.00 per costume, this and tie-ins in general will generate more money than the films themselves.

Publishing rights
Recently saw a book that was nothing less than a series of posters that feature the Marvel characters that could be detached from the book and posted on the walls of one's bedroom or wherever.

Recording rights
Audio books featuring the Marvel characters and the soundtracks from the films.

Staging rights
The Marvel Universe Live, featuring the Marvel characters, which is now touring the U.S. and seems likely, since the interest is there, to tour internationally. A show that allows little boys and big boys to get their inner geekdom on.

And to show that no one does it better than the Walt Disney Company, part of the children's area on board their cruise ships has been turned into a Marvel Training Academy, where after 2 days of training,  if one is young enough, one can help Captain America take on the Red Skull with Captain America putting in a live appearance.

And that is just domestic rights. Not to say what ever foreign rights are available.

Next time: something new

"People Magazine" celebrates its 40th anniversary this month with a special 40th edition. One of the features is the 40 worst murderers, as picked by the editors of "People," with some restrictions. The murderer has to be an American, which eliminates September 11, and the murder has to have happened within the past 40 years, which eliminates everything before 1974, but . . .?! having said that . . .?!

5 were of a racial minority or 12.5%
6 were female or 15%
29 were white males or 72.5%

Only 2 were free and walking around or 5%.
The rest were deceased or in prison.

deceased
--murdered in prison 1 or 2.5%
--died in prison 4 or 10%
--executed 5 or 12.5%
--suicide 10 or 25%

in prison. will die in prison 18 or 45%.

There were several things that surprised me. Not how few women were on the list, that I expected, but with the largest percentage of the prison population being a racial minority, maybe over half, what a large percentage of those murderers were white males.

And with our growing reluctance to execute anyone, even for murder, how many were actually executed, including one of the few women ever executed for murder, were actually executed for their crimes.

I was also surprised at how many committed suicide after their deed. I think which goes to show how disturbed some of these murderers actually were.

Next time: go for the shopping. Not the flying.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
