Acclaimed director of movies such as Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy, Guillermo del Toro, is developing Urasawa’s famous Manga “Monster” into a possible television series for HBO. Del Toro and Steven Thompson (Dr. Who, Sherlock) are writing the pilot with Del Toro directing. No news yet on when we will be able to see it come to TV but I am pretty damn excited, Monster is an amazing thriller and would fit really well as a live action TV show.

Hotel: 5/5 stars

Held in downtown Detroit at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center this hotel, and the adjacent Courtyard Marriott where the Joygazm staff stayed, had just about EVERYTHING you could want. Bonus points: our hotel was connected to the Renaissance Center by tubes!! Just outside the lobby of the Courtyard was an extremely convenient convenience store, walking between the Courtyard and Renaissance Center were other various shops including the famous Tim Horton’s coffee and doughnut chain (which I am bummed I missed out on my chance to try it) as well as a CVS pharmacy.
