The Hitler Zombie definitely approves of this movie: Too bad I don’t speak German or Norwegian, because here’s the movie website, and here’s another trailer sans subtitles: I wonder if I can take some stills from this trailer to use the next time I feel “inspired” (at least I like to call it that) to pen yet another Hitler Zombie epic.
Ever wonder who’d win in a war of Trek vs. the Empire? Well now you know!
PROLOGUE LOCATION: The Liberator, cruising through space. GAN: Are you sure it’s fully switched on? ORAC: Of course I’m properly switched on. Having depressed the activator button what else would you expect? CALLY: It’s his voice. BLAKE: It’s exactly as though Ensor were speaking. ORAC: Surely it is obvious even to the meanest intelligence that during my development I would naturally become endowed with aspects of my creator’s personality. AVON: The more endearing aspects by the sound of it. ORAC: Possibly. However similarities between myself and Ensor are entirely superficial. My mental capacity is infinitely greater. JENNA: Modest, isn’t he? …
I don’t recall where I saw this, but I’ve been meaning to post it. What better time than a not-so-lazy Sunday, when I have to work on a talk, paper, and other things? (It’s either this, or no blog for you on Monday; I think you know which you’d prefer.) For those of you not familiar with Captain Jack, the reason he keeps getting up after being shot is that he can’t be killed (the reasons would take too long to explain). I particularly like the Davros costume, I must admit.
Those who are Battlestar Galactica fans, as I am, know that the disparaging slang humans in the Colonial fleet use for their dreaded enemies the Cylons is to call them “toasters.” The question then naturally follows: Sure, Cylons are toasters, but can they actually make toast? It turns out that they can.
After seeing some Doctor Who silliness yesterday, I also came across this great tribute to 45 years of Doctor Who. Since it’s a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and I’m again too lazy to post anything substantive until Monday, here we go again. It’s every Who story compressed into less than 8 minutes. Truly, a tour de force for surveying the evolution of the show.
Why? Because I love Doctor Who and Benny Hill (although I was never much of an Eminem fan) and because it’s funny, that’s why. Besides, it’s a beautiful Saturday, and I’m feeling too lazy to post anything substantive this morning. That’s all the reason I need.
I realize my post earlier today was a bit of a downer, but what can I say? Lately, there doesn’t seem to be much good news on the ever-growing front in the war against quackery. However, in researching that piece I did come across something that made me smile. I found the campaign website for what to me appears to be the perfect embodiment of politics these days, for a leader who represents an exact fit with the mood of the times: Locutus for President You will be assimilated!
…or maybe Sunday morning, as I don’t know how long it will take to get this by BitTorrent, the penultimate episode of series 4 of Doctor Who (if you’re a Doctor Who fan and haven’t seen the last couple of episodes before this Saturday’s episode The Stolen Earth, beware the spoilers–don’t start the videos if you want to remain pure): This looks like a Who fanboy’s dream. Of course, even though new Doctor Who episodes make it to the U.S. to air on the SciFi Channel only around three or four weeks after they air in the U.K., this fanboy …
Tired of hearing me rant about antivaccinationists? Actually, I’m a bit tired of ranting about antivaccinationists myself, but a blogger’s got to do what a blogger’s got to do when an event like Jenny McCarthy’s “Green Our Vaccines” rally pops up. Still, that doesn’t mean I can’t take a break and indulge myself for a moment. Apparently I missed it last week when it appeared, but a mid-season trailer for Doctor Who has been posted, and it looks really promising for a rip-roaring send-off to this season. I haven’t yet managed to watch last Saturday’s episode yet because of my …
