In the coming weeks, if you find something interesting you think everyone should read, drop me a line via the contact form and let me know, or just post it below. Let’s get started:
1) Fallout Shelter Ads, 1960s: It’s a little hard to imagine these were real. I also want one.
2) Ralph McQuarrie (1929-2012): The Academy award winning illustrator behind Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica and Cocoon has died at age 82
3) Suvudu Cage Match Round 1: So many awesome write-ups.
4) Terra Nova Canceled: I kind of liked this show. I was hoping Fox would give them a chance to get a bit more creative in a second season, maybe SyFy will pick them up.
5) The Simpsons’ Amazing Game of Thrones Intro: These guys never seem to run out of good ideas.
Gosh, those fallout shelters!
And has Fox ever given any science fiction show a real chance? X-Files was horror. Brsico County Jr was science fiction–gone. Firefly–gone. Fringe almost seems like a fluke; like they just haven’t realized yet that it’s still on.
http://www.tor.com/stories/2012/03/dormanna this is a link to a short story by Gene Wolfe based on a piece of art. There will be five stories in all published on consecutive Wednesdays all based on the same artwork. L E Modesitt wrote last weeks story. Both have been interesting.
And this link
should take you to the short film that won an Oscar
The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore (2011) It’s worth the 15 minutes it takes to watch.
I’m kinda digging Fox’s Alcatraz, although I hate that they went with a pretty, petite little chic for the heroine instead of a more believable tough b@!tch..I saw the premier of Touch. It looked good.
