What is This, the S.P.I.D.E.R. Casting Couch Now? ;)

What the hell are you people smoking?! ;) Johnny Depp. Johnny Depp, or...wait, there is no one else. Johnny Depp. Without question. Directed by Tim Burton, of course. Or even the Hughes Brothers. But I've been delving through the From Hell DVDs a lot lately, so I may be biased.

Re: ANSWERING VELVET'S FINAL QUESTION / SLAPPING tk3

Velvet: Your ASSUMPTION, which IS over the line, that I am in favor of mercy killing, turning off Terry Schiavo, Nazi culling of "inferiors," and etcetera, is presumptuous. Ai-yi-yi-yi-yi-yi. that wasn't my presumption at all! I was just disappointed with the fact that you referred in your post to ...

Excellent suggestions, all, Kristin (although I did freak out a bit, that I might possibly have overstepped my bounds with the last couple paragraphs of my last post in this thread). So, let's call it a day, and move along home (or in my case, to work), hmmmm? Move along, folks, nothing to see here....

Re: HARLAN TELLS YOU WHAT THE ENDING IS

I hope this helps you. It floors me, actually. Thank you for giving us your time and your words, which you certainly didn't have to, given the turn your own life has taken lately. It is much appreciated, and I hope it has helped to divert you, if only for a moment, from the contemplation of darknes...

1993 - Mefisto in Onyx

http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/3299/spideralternativuy3.jpg Mefisto in Onyx "...the horripilating centerpiece novella, ''Mefisto in Onyx,'' which describes a black telepath's meeting with a white serial killer on death row, is a reminder that Ellison has not lost his capacity to convey sta...

So here's the point where *I* risk self-electrocution. Let me say at the outset that I really didn't find your howls of anguish at the idiocy prevalent in the cosmos to be out-of-place or necessarily hurtful, spiteful, etcetera, Mister Ellison. As I've said elsewhere on this board, I've seen you rip...

Day(s) late and a (shitload of) dollar(s) short, as usual. Anyone besides me think the author actually played himself DOWN in this one? I certainly do. Maybe that's part of why it doesn't grab you by the throat and force you to keep reading (In a good way! She insists....), the way 99.99999% of Elli...

Subey2: Re: The Video Age as Evolver Agreed, but the same can be said for books. (Science fiction in particular.) After all, the generation that grew up on Heinlein ended up reading New Wave, the generation that grew up on New Wave (us) ended up reading cyberpunk, and now Neuromancer is taught in mo...

That's quite a fascinating take, Subey; not being much of a Dickens fan myself, let alone scholar of same, I would never have made that connection, although it's blatant the story is calling on mythology from some period of early pre-history, with the Cult of the Eye. (For some reason, I kept gettin...

Welp, This ICBM Was a Non-Starter

I guess that means I fall into the same group as Alex and Jim, and the others, re: taking the piece for what it is, in the context of the times (since it is very clearly dated as being in the 60s-70s, with all *that* entails), and not really disliking it all that much. I, too, have seen my fair shar...

That Translation is *So* Bad....

....Fifty bucks (or, if you're a smoker, a carton of Craven M King-sized) says she ran it through Babelfish.

Anyone see that Penn&Teller episode about secondhand smoke?
