Tweet of the Day, PSA: Do Not Put On The Excavated Pre-Aztec Serpentine Stone Mask edition.

Yes, yes, I know. Nobody who reads this site regularly would heedlessly put on an excavated Pre-Aztec serpentine stone mask. But I feel that I have a responsibility to the wider world, here.

In the (e-)Mail: Baen dropped some e-ARCs.

Two of Eric Flint’s alternate history stuff: 1636: The Flight of the Nightingale (Ring of Fire) and Council of Fire (Arcane America). Baen’s also got The Best of Jerry Pournelle up, but I ran out of discretionary income. Besides, that last one I may actually want in hardcover.

The “…But They LOSE” THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE trailer.

I cannot emphasize this enough. They LOSE. The entire species of the Gelflings will be pared down to two individuals. The Age of Resistance will fail. The Skeskis will eventually win in the end, then decay in their turn until the events of the movie.

What is the point of watching this world struggle, and die?

The “I will declare KANLY if they f*ck this up” LITTLE WOMEN trailer.

I am a forgiving man. When they zombified STARSHIP TROOPERS, I held my peace and let it go, because this was the business we were in. When they skinned WILD WILD WEST and turned it into a skin mask, I averted my eyes in distaste. When they butchered ANNE OF GREEN GABLES, I narrowed my eyes, ground my teeth, and shook my head in contempt. . But you will not f*ck up LITTLE WOMEN, you Hollywood motherf*ckers. Do you hear me? DO YOU F*CKING HEAR ME?

You get one chance. ONE.

The MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE Honest Trailer. [UPDATED]

[UPDATE: My lovely and talented wife wishes it to be known that she always knew how stupid the movie was; what was driven home for her was how tedious it was. The management regrets the error. – Mgt.]

Oddly enough, my wife decided to watch MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE last night. Right to the point where she realized anew how incredibly stupid it was, and then she stopped. You can kind of tell that Honest Trailers agrees with her, only with more exasperation because they played with these toys growing up so it’s kind of personal, OK?

PS: Do I want to know why the title isn’t, you know, “He-Man?”

Area 51 ‘raid’ to be turned into Alienstock?

Well, that’s one way not to be neuralized by the Illuminati: “…the creator of the “Storm Area 51” event, Matty Roberts, is looking to change things up a bit and is turning the meet up into a festival for alien enthusiasts to get together and hang out, and he’s calling it Alien Stock.” Yes, yes, I know that they’re spelling it with two words. But if you’re going to derive something’s name from ‘Woodstock,’ you have to make it all one word.

…Unless that’s supposed to be ‘stock’ as in ‘stock pen.’ Which would mean that the aliens are planning to swoop in and beam all of the attendees away to their worldships for involuntary calorie redistribution. In which case… avoid Rachel, Nevada between September 19th to 22nd, I guess.

Site for this very, very 2019 sort of thing here.
