In this day and age, the future is now. And that - may not be a good thing.
Ever since it was announced that this upcoming season of Doctor Who would be Peter Capaldi’s last, rumours have run rampant as to who will next be Who. I can now report, based on a highly reliable source, that I have learned the identity of the actor who’s been chosen to portray the thirteenth incarnation of the…
It’s still April 1st, but this is no joke: Rick and Morty season 3 is here, and you can watch the first episode right now, for a while at least.
Who’s up for some Szechuan sauce?
Today we see an Air Force Officer who should’ve been dismissed years ago lead the team through the Gate for the last time.
After getting to spend some time in Chicago for training, I’m back home in time to take some time off of work. Other than watching 2001 at the closest Alamo Drafthouse Theater I have no plans and I am okay with that. A week of sleeping in and making a lazy effort on my to do list sounds good to me.
...we don’t need Hot Wheels! (But we’ll take them anyway, because they make pretty cool toys. Like this DeLorean I found in my local toy store for 7 bucks. It even has a tiny Mr. Fusion. No word of whether it’s functional, yet... ;) )
The BBC today have shockingly revealed that the next incarnation of everyone’s favourite face-changing pyscho with a sinister love for British 20-something women will be played by none other than former President of the United States George W. Bush and will no longer be a Time-Lord at all.
Last night I read “BALLAD OF A CATAMITE REVOLVER”, the new story by Caitlin R. Kiernan in the latest Sirenia Digest. It’s a very nice cyberpunk noir vignette. A first person narrative told from the point of view of some kind of gangster making a trade with a glamorous, deadly woman during a, to say the least,…
I am actually more excited about this then the Affleck Batman movie. Whedon has done wonders with Buffy and I am sure he will do it here too.
He worked with the man who discovered penicillin, survived a Japanese Prisoner of War camp - and still turns out to work as a doctor at the age of 105. The Daily Telegraph has a heart warming profile of Dr Bill Frankland, MBE who once told Saddam Hussein to quit smoking.
I had hoped he would have instead have been in the next movie.
Amazon are taking pre-orders for the Star Wars Marvel UK Omnibus a massive 808-page hardcover volume that promises lots of goodies never seen in America. Now I am slightly confused, because while Empire Strikes Back Monthly included strips by Steve Moore, Alan Moore, Alan Davis and John Stokes I’m not sure that would…
One of the many things Netflix released at the end of the month is The Discovery. Starting from the premise of a scientist discovering evidence of some form of afterlife, the movie asks questions about what happens next.
It’s a slow Friday at work, so for once I can actually chill on my lunch break. Haven’t been around in forever. Fill me in. Let’s make this an open thread.
Because Quantum! It’s science! Well - one scientific essay... :)
and it’s just as good as any explanation....
I choose these 6 of the twelve. Six will be inducted. I choose Pokemon Red and Green. Street Fighter II, Donkey Kong, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil and Microsoft Solitaire.
We have a handful of shows ending this month, but lots of premieres, including ones with a certain mad man with a box, the science guy and a brain-eating coroner’s assistant. April also sees the premiere of shows based on novels by Phillippa Gregory, Margaret Atwood and Neil Gaiman. Check below to find out what’s…
There’s a whole website called Kindertrauma devoted to stuff you saw on TV when you were a little kid that terrified the crap out of you. Not all of these things were horror movies, or even intended to be scary — some were just maybe a little too weird or unhinged for your developing, impressionable mind to handle.…
