  • Halt And Catch Fire

    I knew zero about this series. Zip. Nihil. I saw it when I was skimming through Amazon Prime’s exclusive vid list and thought, hmmm, I’ll check that out when I have time. I assumed, because I haven’t seen even one post about it on Tumblr, that it wasn’t any good. I was very wrong. (MINOR…

  • Antoine Et Colette

    I guess I fell in love with Marie-France Pisier the first time I saw François Truffaut’s Antoine Et Colette. Originally posted by romantic-nostalgia Originally posted by francoisrolandtruffaut See? How could you not? Plus, she had the exoticism of being an older lady… I must have been around 16 when I saw it and she’s 18…

  • Where Is Everybody?

    sunslammerdown: rockpapertheodore: roachpatrol: just-shower-thoughts: What if aliens visited Earth during the Jurassic Period, found it to be occupied with a bunch of mean, giant lizards and thought “Well, fuck this planet” and never came back? what if when humans went out into the galaxy all the aliens panicked because if the dinosaurs’ tiny fur snacks…

  • Fascism – What It Is And How To Fight It By Leon Trotsky

    “What is fascism? The name originated in Italy. Were all the forms of counter-revolutionary dictatorship fascist or not (That is to say, prior to the advent of fascism in Italy)? The former dictatorship in Spain of Primo de Rivera, 1923-30, is called a fascist dictatorship by the Comintern. Is this correct or not? We believe…

  • Wonder Woman

    Originally posted by whatsyourderbyname When I saw the series as a kid, I loved it! There wasn’t that much powers stuff on telly so to get a major US series like this was sooo awesome. I cannot tell you how innocently excited I got every time she did her twirl, it was exactly the same…

  • Terminator Genisys

    JUST GOT BACK FROM SEEING TERMINATOR GENISYS!! and WHEEEEEEEEEE! Such an awesome SF blockbuster! Some of the initial fight scenes made me literally jump out of my seat. I had to close my eyes like a tiny child COS I WAS SCARED! CGI was cool, properly impressive without being intrusive. All the performances were on…

  • Cargo (2009)

    I started watching this totally on the off-chance: it was on Amazon Prime, said it was SF so I thought I’d give it a go! Turns out, it’s a pretty good SF thriller! I thought at first it was gonna be a creepy Event Horizon-type thingy but I’m glad it was actually more of a…

  • Apple Music Connect – A Muddled, Outrageous Cock-Up

    So, since my NEW SINGLE is released today in iTunes, I thought I would try to connect (hurr) using the new Apple Music Connect service that Apple evangelised at WWDC. How about I upload a little text blurb and the video onto Connect? Should be easy! Right, let’s find my Artist bit in Safari on…

  • Dark Matter

    So, I’m three eps into Dark Matter and it’s pretty good! It was a little clunky to start off with but I feel it’s finding its feet now. I’m glad the memory thingy has been addressed so quickly and not dragged out for the whole series, that would have been painful. The cast are all…
