Tweet of the Day, …Taika Waititi, you say?

Taika Waititi supposedly is working on a new Flash Gordon? That’s animated?

:pause:

I’ll allow it.

A clip from that ‘Little Monsters’ zombie comedy.

Lupita Nyong’o is kind of convincing me to maybe see this one. Originally seen via Coming Soon, but they’ve got this thing about embedding third-party videos that’s just annoying enough to make me go find it for myself. So maybe counter-productive?

Oh. Zombies, so if your boss is squeamish maybe don’t click on the link at work.

Item Seed: Reflective Onion.

Reflective Onion

Allium cepa speculum

Description: the bulb of the Reflective Onion greatly resembles a common onion when unpeeled.  The primary difference is that the inner layers of the Reflective Onion are transparent, and indeed catch the light in a way that both sparkles, and dazzles.  Reflective Onions are both nutritious and palatable to most human-variant species.

“Build an organic hand laser,” they said.  “Make it so that people can grow it,” they said.  “Make the four or five crops you need part of the standard planetary colonization package,” they said.  And, wouldn’t you know it? They were right! It worked out fine: corn for the stock; carrot for the focusing barrel; potato for the battery; beet for the laser emitter; and a Reflective Onion as the organic focusing chamber.

It’s always a shame when you see people open a Forbidden Book and you can’t stop them.

Toys R Us to return?

Interesting:

According to a fresh report from Bloomberg, former Toys “R” Us executive Richard Barry, now the CEO of Tru Kids Inc., is shopping around plans to resurrect the brand in the form of six stores and a website.

If his promising pitch comes to pass, the physical locations would be about a third the size of the original stores with 10,000 square feet. Moreover, they would have more interactive experiences, such as “play areas,” and exercise a business model of not paying toymakers until consumers actually purchased their products.

Movie of the Week: Darkest Hour.

Although technically it’s the Movie of the Night: Darkest Hour was on absurd sale, so I grabbed it. I’ll be watching it tonight, finally. Should be good!

Yeah, but who would you pick for the live-action Miles Morales?

In the process of saying things that we already knew would happen (Tom Hardy is going to make another Venom movie*; Sony wouldn’t mind a Venom / Spider-Man crossover, if only they can figure out how to do it), producer Amy Pascal said this:

Fans of Miles Morales will also be happy to learn that the character’s inclusion in this animated universe does not necessarily mean we can’t ever get a live-action version of him, too. “No, I don’t think you should exclude [Miles from a live-action movie],” Pascal said. “I think you should assume there is nothing to exclude.”

Patreon Microfiction: “Conniving Good.”

Patreon!

There is absolutely a longer story in “Conniving Good,” but I’m not exactly sure how it’d go. To be completely honest about it, it’d involve themes that I vaguely associate with tiresome people on the Internet. I’d rather not find out too late that that sort of thing is contagious.
