THE COMICS' BEAT: The Thing In Xzibit's 'X'

Mondays. They are worse than Dr Doom and after a heavy one, it can be a little hard to get the drum pumping again for the week ahead. As a former DJ, each Monday I dig into my collection, and chuck up a hit nodding to comics' best.

This week, we're heading into Christmas, so I'm starting to favour my favourites. Hence why today's track tackles my favourite Marvel man of all, The Thing. While the lyrics are explicit and I'd think Benjamin Grimm was more suited to rock (see what I did there - clever huh?), the hero of the piece just can't be beaten.

"...I'm concrete like Benjamin Grimm
It's a very thin line between a foe and a friend
Straight to the chair
(Not these $%#% again)'"

  1. I'm surprised Karl hasn't already commented on this, and told us how that chick obsessed with the Thing only goes out with guys who are as hard as a brick;) No? Damn, I'll keep trying then;)

  2. Thanks Dale! People always give up traditions close to the end of the year and as usual it's always the wrong ones they give up first.

  3. Theres an unfortunately weird individual over on our FF forum who has a crush on good ol' Benjamin J and I hope to God she never gets to hear this - she over analyzes everything he says!

  4. See Karl - back to your old self in no time! :)
