Neil Gaiman reads Jabberwocky

The title says the important bit, but it is not the full story. Worldbuilders let people who donated money vote on what would be read. In this instance, the author/reader was Neil Gaiman, and Jabberwocky won the toss (the also-rans included Goodnight Moon, Fox in Socks, and Where the Wild Things Are). Thanks to everyone […]

Happy Halloween! Skeleton Dance, 8 Bit Army of Darkness

Normally I do music on Saturday night’s, but normally Saturday is not Halloween. So this time around, a couple of classics in honor of the holiday. To make up for the schedule, music will be along very shortly, in honor of the new Abney Park album. The first Halloween video:

This is part of Disney’s […]

Something to Do: Movies

This week we get a shot of pure silly with the movie Pixels, and a whole new take on Space Invaders. I am still debating if this one needs the big screen or would be just as good streaming on a tablet, but however I see it I am looking forward to it.


Something to Watch: Discs

This time Movies have Ex Machina, a cybernetic tale of the birth of AI as haunting as it is thought provoking. While not as relentlessly kill crazy as the Terminator series, you do get a glimpse into the birth of that attitude among the biologically challenged, and the kind of events that might provoke it.

Nietzsche as an 8-Bit Game

This video is what you would get if you built the philosophy of Nietzsche as an 8-Bit Video Game. Maybe not what you might have expected, but certainly something that was a logical extrapolation of the process.

X-Minus 1 radio plays

Archive Dot Org has a great assortment of X-1 episodes which you can listen to online, or download for your own collection. The show was one of the better presentations of science fiction radio plays, built from stories that appeared in Galaxy magazine, written by some of the best authors of the era. This program […]

Man From U.N.C.L.E. trailer

We finally get a new Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie, and based on the trailer this reboot of the franchise looks fairly faithful to the original. Hopefully it will include the dry humor as well as the action of its progenitor. I am looking forward to seeing Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin in action together again […]

All You Zombies out next month

They took Robert A. Heinlein’s time-travel story All You Zombies and turned it into an Australian movie called Predestination, and it will be out in January. This segment is the first 7 minutes of the film, just enough to give you a feel for the rhythm and mood of this rendering of the story. The […]

Hendrix at Woodstock

If you were there, you know there is no way to make anyone who wasn’t understand the experience. This is the set that closed the show, on Monday morning, August 18th, at 8AM. Of course, it was supposed to happen on Sunday night, but the entire event was running on hippy time, and by the […]

Dracula Untold trailer

This appears to be a unique take on the origin story of Dracula, with a bit of the historical Vlad Tepes embedded to explain the forces driving him to make bad choices for good reasons. With the tag line Every bloodline has a beginning, Dracula Untold will be hitting the big screen in October.
