It took me three weeks due to vacation and illness…and prepping all the images, of which there are many…but here is my summary of FallCon 2005. Sorry it’s a bit late, but I think it’s worth it. FallCon is the annual October two-day convention held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul, MN, by …
Mark Steyn’s horror movie reviews come off as a bit whiney, though it would be hard not to whine when the subjects are “The Blair Witch Project,” “Interview With The Vampire,” “Wolf” and “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.” Especially “Blair Witch.” It’s fashionable to hate the movie now, but I hated it back before it was hip. …
AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) worm plays nasty new trick
John Britton points out that I was quoted in a legal journal.

I saw that news item about George Takei and clicked over to Monitor Duty to begin my write-up, my mind culling Star Trek trivia for the appropriate headline. “Mr. Sulu, you have the Coming Out.” “Star Trek cast now even more diverse.” “Gold for command, red for security…what’s pink?” “When did Mr. Sulu find the …
A few days ago, possibly last week, duivba and I were discussing Firefly and Serenity and he stated that he wished he knew what the characters were saying when they were speaking in Chinese. I found the Firefly-Serenity Chinese Pinyinary so now we can look up what Mal, Wash, and the others are saying when …
Greg Burgas asserts that it is. I’ve only read a few issues of this Batman storyline but I dislike the use of the Riddler to suffocate babies and….. the story is bleck gross in my view.
CNN reports the following on George Takei’s decision to acnknowledge publicly that he is a homosexual: “George Takei, who as “Star Trek’s” Sulu was part of the Starship Enterprise crew through three television seasons and six movies, has come out as a homosexual in the current issue of Frontiers, a biweekly Los Angeles magazine covering …
This is only historical stuff, but I actually do recall viewing some of this deleted footage that is being discussed. I’ll stand by these anecdotes.
Let’s see if I can summarize this concisely, properly, and accurately. Way back in the day Richard Donner directed Superman: the Movie and filmed both that film and Superman II simultaneously, much like what Peter Jackson did for the Lord of the Rings trilogy and what the Watchowski Brothers did with the last two Matrix …
See the flying lawnmower!
Stephen King and Marvel Comics have officially announced that they are going to colloborate on a whole new project that acts as the eighth book of the DARK TOWER series. This Dark Tower comic book series will begin in April and be collected in hardback in the fall of 2006. Eisner-award winner Jae Lee is …
King Kong might get renamed King Long. Peter Jackson has negoitated a 3 hour running time for the new King Kong. That means fewer showings a day for a movie that is now trying to make up for a $200 million budget. But I predict that this movie will be far more successfull than Spielberg’s …
Looks sweet! All kinds of little clues and glimpses on that baby. Thanks to NEWSARAMA for yet another exclusive.
In case you didn’t know, the new season of the animated Teen Titans has launched a season-long storyline pitting the Titans against the Brotherhood of Evil (after kicking off with a surprisingly faithful Doom Patrol two-parter). This led into the Brotherhood uniting ALL of the Titans enemies…which is rather similar to the season-long Legion of …
He has super-strength, telepathy, bullet-proof skin, shape-shifting (which also allows invisibility and intangibility), Martian vision, some super-speed, and flight. Even with all his power, he prides himself moreso on being a detective and having a finely trained analytical/tactical mind. He’s been alive for centuries and may still be alive long after this planet is gone. …
Slither looks to be another horror/comedy akin to “Eight Legged Freaks”, albeit with many more legit scary parts. And it stars Nathan Fillion (Captain Mal of “Serenity”).
There is a glorious new trailer here. You know, I really should read these kinds of books (i.e., Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings, etc.). I think this movie is gonna kick some serious Narnia butt!
