The new “Indepedence Day: Resurgence” trailer.

I do kind of miss Will Smith not being in this one, but it does look like the script tried to at least THINK about the implications of the aftermath of an alien invasion. Also, Jeff Goldblum lampshades a particular trope of this… series, now. You’ll know it when you see it.

‘Ziggy Stardust.’

Don’t remember if I did this one this year already and I don’t care.

‘Suffragette City.’

This was on the radio at just the right psychological moment to enliven my car ride today.

So, here’s the Lego Batman Movie trailer.

It’s the Lego Movie Batman movie, mind you, not a Lego Batman movie. You can tell by the fact that this Lego Batman is clearly not as skilled as the usual Lego Batman, which means that oh God help me I’m going to have to watch this movie twenty thousand times when it hits DVD because well-meaning relatives will buy it for my children and then it’ll just be on continuous rotation for four days straight.  Because that’s how these things go.

Anyway: here’s the trailer!  Those of you with children: look upon the form of your Destructor! 2017!

My RedState post on the Jeb endorsement.

Found here. Short version: Jeb Bush’s endorsement does actually help Ted Cruz*. But, possibly more importantly… it’s effectively a message to Kasich that he should stop trying to make ‘fetch’ happen.

*Yeah, if I had said that in March of 2015 all y’all would have looked at me funny. I would have looked at me funny, too. Since then… well, it’s been that kind of year.

Ooh: The BBC is doing a version of SS-GB.

It’s apparently going to be a five-part series.  For those who aren’t familiar, SS-GB is an alternate history novel by British spy novel great Len Deighton: as you might have gleaned from the title, it’s a police/spy novel set in a world where the Germans won the Battle of Britain and are now occupying the United Kingdom. I read it a while back, and I can say that it’s certainly adaptable for the television screen.  And a miniseries would probably do it more justice than a movie, at that. (more…)

Tweet of the Day, And I Don’t Even Watch Basketball edition.

But I feel for this Taurean Prince guy.

I also suspect that Mr. Prince may have actually gotten something out of his college education. Even if it’s just a talent for deadpan contempt. Because, really, that was a damned stupid question. Sometimes the other guys are just open for business.

Well, it’s gonna be one of THOSE evenings.

In case anybody cares: I don’t believe in political violence. The problem is, what happened in Chicago was that one group that does kind of believe in political violence met another group that believes in political violence, and the two groups* decided to have themselves some mutual political violence. Erick Erickson put it perfectly:

‘Rhumba Girl.’

Got sent this last night.  Pretty good stuff. And, since I got distracted by what turned out to be one of the more dramatic reversals of this election cycle (how the heck did Bernie Sanders win Michigan?), I might as well put it up now.
