    Sci-Fi District 9

    I saw this by mistake, thinking was "9". Took my buddy's little daughter to see it. Kept wondering when the sockpuppet people were going to show up. I like it, a unusual, out of wack film, which I always enjoy. I liked the way it fed in with newsbreaks and stuff, loved a lot of the bits...

    What are your thoughts of the 2012 scenario

    None of the bold items you specify there are necessarily "terrible" events. The only two that are "terrible" (maybe) are your interpretation of the Quezecoatl thing (which actually has NOTHING to do with the end of the calendar, FYI) and "more mundane speculations". By the way... it...

    Sci-Fi Watchmen (2009)

    Re: Watchmen There's a difference between "hitting a nerve" and "getting on somebody's nerves". But yeah, the whole binary film review thing is a a pet peeve of long standing. Thanks for your comments, Glad you liked my graphicporn. Peace, love, tie-dye. Birdman, your comment on...

    What are your thoughts of the 2012 scenario

    I'd say this recently discovered artifact reveals much more of the calendar's true purpose. Anybody looked over that Team 2012 site much...pretty funny.

    Sci-Fi Watchmen (2009)

    Re: Watchmen No. I've heard RUMORS of 13 year olds reading books. But if you say it doesn't happen there must be something to it. Because after all, you're.... wait, what is it you are again that informs your high skool hotshot opinions?

    Re: Watchmen BTW, Mr. Get a Dictionary. "reiterate" means repeat. So turn yourself in to the department of redundancy department.

    Sci-Fi Watchmen (2009)

    Re: Watchmen Don't flatter yourself with that smarmy superciliousness, kiddo. I'm out of your league. As film critic, writer, and being a jerk if I want to. You are mistaking somebody DISAGREEING with you (and making it stick) with somebody who can't UNDERSTAND your shopworn, off the...

    Sci-Fi Watchmen (2009)

    Re: Watchmen Gee, I guess I just don't get. All those years writing and running publications, doing hundreds of film reviews and interviews. writing screenplays and pitching them. Meaningless because you see to feel that it conflicts with whatever it is you're trying to say. Which...

    Sci-Fi Watchmen (2009)

    Re: Watchmen It it's on TV it's for entertainment purposes. The whole "everybody's stupid so you have to dumb down for them" argument sucks, frankly. There's just no justification for the "good/bad" BS taking up time. If they can't say something to give people an idea of whether they...

    Sci-Fi Watchmen (2009)

    Re: Watchmen Actually, the thumbs down thing is widely cited and discussed for films. Ebert is one of the most listened-to film raters. It's not "entertainment"...it's information. More people are aware of that kind of rating than know why it was rated good or bad. But I also intended...

    Sci-Fi Watchmen (2009)

    Re: Watchmen Ideally, criticism is for the purpose of expanding your appreciation of a piece of work, or helping you decide if it is something that YOU would enjoy or not. Thumbs up or down doesn't do that, and is a cheap, stupid way to approach art. Any little boy will say, "It rocks" or...

    Please vote for my cool book video

    So, this isn't exactly SF poetry, but the video has a visual and sonic feel that will probably appeal to fans. This is really my masterpiece of video, and I think you'll dig it. Please take a look (or don't bother, just vote for Engines of Desire, #2 on the ballot, and be done with it)...

    When we colonize another planet.......

    Touching stars is not all that highly recommended.

    When we colonize another planet.......

    Actually, everybody tends to think that about themselves. Kind of like everybody thinks they are a good judge of character. And men all think they're good poker players. But my "blind faith" remark wasn't addressed to you, but to the "must do" comments. Apply some logic to "must" and try...
