Marv's Store

Posted: May 17, 2016, 00:19:06

As most of you know Marv has been with Lilja’s Library for the last 10 years and he has been on the cover of the book version of Lilja’s Library, the subject for a writing contest (winning story was published in a paperback), he has his one movie prop museum and once he was even supposed to be done as a keychain. That didn’t happen but now he has opened no less than two stores of his own. One over at Zazzle and one over at Café Press. In that store you can buy different items with Marv’s face on them. There are two designs, one in black and white and one in color to choose from.

There will be new things added as we go along and if there is an item that you feel “that one I’d really like to have with Marv’s face on it”, well just let me know and I’ll take care of it.

Marv was created in 2006 by Glenn Chadbourne for the then new design of Lilja’s Library. Now, 10 years later, Vincent Chong has done his version of Marv and that’s the version you’ll find in the stores. So, head over to the stores, look around, buy if you find something you like and as I said, let me know if there is anything else you’d like to put Marv’s face on.

Owen Teague About Cell

Interview with Owen Teague who plays Jordan in Cell.


Jordan: a 12-year-old-boy studying at prep school that was devastated by the Pulse, Jordan faithfully remains with the headmaster, Charles Ardai, until they destroy the flock at the school and Ardai is driven to suicide by the phoners. Jordan remains with the group and provides the intellectual theory and comparison of the effects of the Pulse to that of a worm in a computer.

Here is a part of the interview.

Colleen Bement: What can you share about your experience making the upcoming film Cell?

Owen Teague: Cell was an amazing experience. That was my first time working on the set of a movie like that; heavy on stunts, special effects, blood, and science-fiction-horror stuff. Working with John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson was incredible. Both are really intense and made that terrifying world feel real. Stacey Keach was also amazing to work with. The whole thing was kind of surreal, because leading up to getting involved with that movie, starting in middle school, I had become obsessed with everything Stephen King. He’s one of my favorite authors. And so actually playing one of his characters, and saying his words, and being in a movie he was so closely involved with was just insane. Especially a film with such amazing people working on it. And the other thing was that while we were shooting it, a movie about a kind of apocalypse, we got hit with this horrible, freak snowstorm in Atlanta. I think they called it “snowmaggedon.”The crew got stuck in the bar where we were filming for like two days. So there we were, making this movie about four people in the middle of the end of the world, and outside, people were stranded because of a giant snowstorm. Other than that though, it was a great experience.

For those seeking an early preview of how the February 2017 film is coming together, Entertainment Weekly presents this podcast version of our conversation with King himself, as well as director and co-writer Nikolaj Arcel.

In the pod you’ll hear the two men describe approximately where the film will pick up within the storyline of King’s books, and both address why Elba was the right choice for Roland the Gunslinger — and why McConaughey was chosen as the sinister, shape-shifting Man in Black.

Marv is branching out. Just 4 days after he opened his store over at Zazzle he is opening another one. This one is located at Café Press and the items you can get here are a bit different from the one over at Zazzle so head over and check them out. And as usual, if there are any times you’re missing. Let me know and I’ll take care of it.

Marv was created in 2006 by Glenn Chadbourne for the then new design of Lilja’s Library. Now, 10 years later, Vincent Chong has done his version of Marv and that’s the version you’ll find in the store. So, head over to the store, look around, buy if you find something you like and as I said, let me know if there is anything else you’d like to put Marv’s face on.
