‘Walking On Broken Glass.’

Walking On Broken Glass, Annie Lennox

I am going to have to send this Big Hero 6 clip to my wife.

She’ll either think it’s perfect, or tell me everything that’s wrong with it.  Or both.

Book of the Week: Bitter Seeds.

Actually, the recommendation is for all three books in Ian Tregellis’s Milkweed Triptych (Bitter Seeds is merely the first of the three), but the series is not yet in omnibus form.  The series is very much alternate history horror (Second World War era), with definite elements of unapologetic cosmic horror. I enjoyed all three books in the series, for given values of ‘enjoyed;’ horrible place to visit, and danged certain that I’d never want to live there, but the locale has its charms.  Again, for given values of ‘charmed’ and all that.

 

Adieu, Quatermass and the Pit: Five Million Years to Earth (BFI Film Classics).  Your time will come!  Soon.  Soon.

The fascinating thing about #McRib posts. (“Traffic GOLD, Jerry! GOLD!”)

Write a five hundred word post, and it’s crickets sometimes.  Do this…

…and you get responses and retweets and followings out the wazoo. It is a wonder, really.

Dear LORD but today’s just Grim News Day. (Mild language warning)

I mean, sure, some stuff has been kind of funny, but for esoteric, politically-saturated values of ‘funny.’  Nothing really generally entertaining.  Is there anything funny out there?  Anythi…

Hold on.

Hey, Moe! Go ask Siri ‘What is a douchebag?’ (more…)

Oh dear GOD no! Not the McRib! NOT THE MCRIB!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO….

McDonald’s (MCD) McRib fans may have to hunt harder than usual for the popular sandwich this year.

It will only be available at participating restaurants, rather than nationwide, the company said.

“We’re letting the restaurants determine if this menu item is one their customers will enjoy,” wrote McDonald’s spokeswoman Lisa McComb in an email.

I WILL DETERMINE FOR THE RESTAURANTS. THE RESTAURANTS WILL SERVE THE MCRIB. ALL THE RESTAURANTS. ALL THE MCRIBS.  UNTIL THE TIME OF SATIATION HAS BEGUN. (more…)

Oooh. @Jringo1508’s Strands of Sorrow is out as an ARC at Baen.

I routinely devour new books in this series, which is more or less ‘zombie apocalypse meets modern combat, only more realistic and with no axes to grind about the military;’ it’s only fifteen bucks… so I should be able to afford it in a few more weeks.

Oh, what the heck: any excuse to rattle the tip jar is a good one, nu?

PS: Seriously: John Ringo writes some great stuff. If you’re not reading him, you should at least consider it.

If you like me, jump in on @RobinDLaws Feng Shui 2 Kickstarter in its final hours.

Or, shoot, even if you hate my guts. Feng Shui is a heck of a game…

…and the Kickstarter for the second version is in its final hours. I want the stretch goals, though. I want ALL the stretch goals. GIVE THEM UNTO ME. You even get good stuff for doing so! So it’s win-win.

Hey, Damnation Alley is on YouTube!

Never seen the movie…

…the story, of course, is one of the classics of science fiction (novella’s better than the book, though).  This… is not. Giant scorpions, though.

‘Going Down To Liverpool.’

Yeah, I know, it’s not the greatest song in the world. But it’s not awful…

…and it’s got Leonard Nimoy in it.  Looking absurdly young.
