He is Kazimir Satler and he is Ukrainian.
Contrary to popular belief, catnip does NOT have the same ecstatic effect on all cats alike. I had one cat who seemed to orgasm every time I fed her this stuff. At times, I ended giving her less because of the intense reaction. Another cat of mine did not react to the stuff at all. Her bowel movements garnered a…
The band’ name is Zapaska (a form of Ukrainian folk attire skirt), the name is ‘Ask a question’, and the animator behind this little modernist masterpiece is Oleh Zhyrba. (Ukraine had a blooming Modernist culture until the Soviets partly smothered and partly appropriated it — like they did do everything Ukrainian).
It’s time for the Final Four. We started with 64 anime openings, but only 4 remain to fight for the top spot. Which two will survive the day to make it to the Final? Go vote, and we’ll find out.
Hello and welcome to WednesdayBookClub, everyone. My name is Geesejuggler and I’m actually writing this on a Wednesday! I know, not a victory to anyone but it is to me, so ha! Lets get started, shall we?
A couple of days before we were getting ready to repel an alien invasion, the fifth season of Doctor Who kicked off what may have been it’s finest hour(s). Over the next year (1967-68) it would be on something of a roll and the opening salvo of Patrick Troughton’s sophomore season set the bar high.
With all the rejoicing across the internet to-day over the news that Corey Trevorrow is out as director of Star Wars: Episode IX there’s naturally been a lot of speculation as to who’ll take over the reins. I say; get Gordon Cole! That is, David Lynch. He was, after all, George Lucas’ first choice to direct Return of…
Is anybody reading the Marvel Generations books starring the original and current wearers of various mantles? Are they critical to keeping up with continuity?
It’s a commercial... And I really don’t have a clue what anyone was thinking making it, but - growing up with Masters of the Universe as the biggest thing in my childhood, this is doubtlessly hilarious.
*** This is about Twin Peaks: The Return in general and about last night’s finale. If you’re worried about being spoiled, I’d look elsewhere. ***
Part of me wonders how I can go back to watching any other TV show after Twin Peaks, part of me feels like the brilliance of Twin Peaks has enhanced my viewing experience of everything else. As last night’s finale brought home, it is a show about experience, about contemplation of the moment and the potentials that…
Man, it’s Monday and I already miss Dark Matter. This has nothing to do with Preacher, I just wanted to bitch some more about Dark Matter being cancelled. Welcome to the Preacher season 2 episode 12 “On Your Knees” spoilerific reaction thread, where you can your thoughts on the show as it plays out or after…
Welcome back to the Anime Opening Bracket. 8 anime openings remain to be voted on. And this is going to be the toughest round yet. Which openings will fail to make it to the Final 4? It’s time to vote and decide.
Did you know that Russia has its own, honest-to-Gods, Indians? (I know the correct terms for the Indigenous peoples but the similarity is much more obvious this way) and of all places, in Siberia? (as a matter of fact, the two men in the very beginning of the new The Tick series are Siberian reindeer herders)
or, more tellingly, Biter, Irkutsk-based artist Liana Anatolyevich, are captivating and hint at dangers both tangible and intangible. She seems to reference a lot of folklore and modern pop culture (check out her Hellboy).
...and by “Dare” I mean if you dared to pay for IMAX tickets to watch it. I decided I don’t care for spoilers on this one and I would like your spoilerrific opinions. This might not even get one comment... but I’ve hosted TWD threads, so I’m used to it.
The stars have turned and a time has presented itself. Everything is converging. Pour some coffee, warm some cherry pie, and discuss what’s happening in the final two parts of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: The Return. Spoilers ahead.
Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of a UFO invasion in England. On September 4th, 1967, six flying saucers touched down at various locations marking out a line, sparking fears of invasion from outer space. The things bleeped and burped and there were tales of flashing lights
The Seventh Doctor seems really confident he can save Nostradamus and the rest of humanity from destruction in the 2011 Doctor Who audio play The Doomsday Quatrain. It’s an entertaining adventure that doesn’t quite succeed in connecting questions about prophecy with questions about what it means to be a sentient being.
