A feature on Gizmodo today put me in mind of a favourite album, namely SW1T DR1MZ by the late Tim Souster. It is an eccentric and elegant exercise in electronic music. And if memory serves this rendition of a Keats poem is the first time a synthetic voice had been heard - beating Ray Kurzweil and his reading machine…
The future is back! At least for the next year. The BBC has launched a year long season of science and technology programming under the banner of Tomorrow’s World.
But I’m sure it would strike fear in the hearts of the rebel scum, my Master!
Last night’s première of the American Gods television series was one of the best première episodes of any series I’ve seen in years. The cast, the music, the editing, everything’s well above average even in this day and age of great television.
It’s been 4 months and we’re back fellow devil watchers! I hope that 24: Legacy and APB were good because I didn’t watch either one of them. Now before we begin I have news for everyone. First, if you missed the announcement, Lucifer is coming back for a third season and it will be a full 22 episode long season.…
Family, you amorphous metaphorical thing that has but one true purpose: to help our heroes arc and character move forward once you inevitably get abducted. Tonight’s turn to help Kara’s development goes to: ALEX. Let’s react.
Time to share your drawings and paintings! With every sketch we get better even though sometimes our eyes tell us otherwise.
Vote furry or feathery? How do you weigh up the scales?
Advanced Muggle Studies is back, and we’re punnier than ever! This week, we discuss: poor misdirected Ginny; magical hucksters; new and improved criminal Hermione; bad swelling puns; What the Fuck, Hogwarts?; Dueling Clubs are useless; no one in this school did any student teaching; pointless spell fights; Snape is a…
I bought this morning for 9 dollars. Marvel Essentials Rampaging Hulk 1, Marvel Essentials Rampaging Hulk 2 and Marvel Essentials Two In One Featuring The Thing.
In lieu of our regularly scheduled GoT Book Spoiler Thread, I am proud to present a spoiler-filled thread for people who have read Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and Anansi Boys. Click to prove your love to Bilquis.
BBC3 are weighing up Guardians reviews. I like the Rolling Stone description of loosey-goosey (didn’t she have her own comic?), However it is just an excuse for a light-hearted quiz about Marvel movies.
Just a quick heads up that airing tonight and tomorrow night at 9PM EST on The History Channel, at least in the U.S., is a new two-part documentary called Superheroes Decoded.
Now - I know this may sound easy, but not if the phrase is meant to be funny. Evidently, if you’re dubbed Spanish, you have no other way than turning Japanese. Even as a Terminator...
IT’S NOT TOUCHING THE FLOOR.
Almost all the remaining regular season network shows are ending this month. However, we still have a few premieres, including a show based on a novel by Melinda Taub, more time traveling Monkeys and the long-awaited return of Agent Dale Cooper. May also puts us into the tv upfront season, so expect lots of news about…
So today we have the return of Ba’al and probably the worst episode since Emancipation.
So if I have things right, this post will pop up ten minutes before those of us in the UK find out what that elephant was doing on the frozen Thames.
If there’s another film that better showcases Peter Cushing than 1962's Captain Clegg I’ve yet to see it. He’s surrounded by a good cast with Patrick Allen, Oliver Reed, Michael Ripper, and Jack MacGowran, but in addition to the acting talent on display this movie has one of the most satisfying scripts of any Hammer…
Who pays for satellites and other space tech that falls from the sky? The British Government (currently in pre-election limbo) has ambitious plans for a space port that will launch satellites into orbit. Several sites in England, Scotland and Wales have been identified as possible locations.
