The best story in the Infernal Devices series of Doctor Who audio plays from last year turned out to be its last one, The Neverwhen, which finds the War Doctor (John Hurt) confronting another machine that jumbles up time lines.
Due to the first issue of The Wild Storm coming out last week, Comixology is having a huge Warren Ellis sale that ends on 2/20/17. I already own physical copies of everything, but I decided to buy an online copy of one of my favorite of series by Ellis: Global Frequency.
This weekend, to mixed critical reception Gore Verbinski’s first movie since 2013’s The Lone Ranger released to theaters. A Cure for Wellness offers both beautiful and grotesque visuals, but fans of 2008’s BioShock should pay attention for another reason. Verbinski was the director who almost brought Rapture to film.
So here we are today exploring more Earth based issues. I’ve switched the episodes around as they were aired in the wrong order, with Affinity containing references to The Trust before they were introduced in Covenant.
It’s a windy, rainy day here in San Diego, a good day to stay in and read Frankenstein. Or even a pirate adventure, like to-day’s new chapter of my infrequently updated webcomic, The Devils Dekpa and Deborah. We find our heroines further on their journey to Chatham despite a thick fog. Enjoy.
This episode, we discuss: evolving friend dynamics; Snape gets around; Neville is a badass; rabbit holes; Medieval Elvis; my incredible overarching theory of the series OMG; principles of alchemy; why the Sorcerer’s Stone, both the book and the object, are the keys to the entire series; the four stages of creating a…
This week on Advanced Muggle Studies we discuss: Quidditch-induced ball bruising; Snape/Filch slashfic; Lee Jordan for President; never tell Hagrid a secret; Voldemort’s eternal grudge against the Weasleys; holiday wish fulfillment; shagging in the Restricted Section; Hermione saves the world one piece of chocolate at…
Because I’m not locking the door on my way out tonight. Just lock the place up when you leave.
Just a heads up. Because I know some of you have spent a lot of times playing V:TM the pen & paper version. Or attended any of the “by night” LARPs.
The Macinbot. Complete with all the accessories you need. Like - a sidekick mouse. And a bag full of fonts. Literally. Well. Sort of. Not sure the Font Suitcase actually contains any fonts... ;)
I discovered ODECK and IO9 late and while I get responses and approvals here on ODECK seemingly because it’s a smaller community I never get any on IO9. I see many of your contributions there. Is there some trick or application process?
I loved the original 1979 Malcolm McDowell movie. He played HG Wells who used his Time Machine to propel from 1890s London to 1979 San Fransisco to chase after the clever and evil Jack The Ripper. It does a perfect balance of comedy, Wells has a harder time adapting then Jack, with suspense and a splash of romance.…
I wrote this post on time, but I wasn’t fast enough! Welcome back to Flecha Verde! On this episode we will see Ollie attempting to be a competent career person instead of arrowing on people. Will he succeed? I think not! But let’s watch and react either way.
I have to say, the whole mind fuckery stuff wore out its welcome pretty damn fast but the action sequences were worth putting up with it. So yeah I’ll be sticking with it for a while (And if not I’ll hand this thread over to who ever wants while I go watch the Expanse). Welcome to the Legion episode two “Chapter 2”…
Well that was fast, they sure did resolve the whole Beast plot a lot faster than I thought they would and they went through with Alice’s book fate which was also interesting. Makes me wonder if they’ll go through with Julia’s book fate as well. Welcome to The Magicians season 2 episode four “The Flying Forest” …
Welcome back to The Expanse. Prediction: a certain group of people are going to be extraordinarily unhappy. As always, please keep book spoilers well labeled.
And here we are again in the Pegasus Galaxy, with the team this time being serious and suspicious and serious around kids. All very serious.
