Farming the Oceans, the Moon, and Antarctica

2019/11/15

According to at least one prop replica, Rick Deckard‘s newspaper from Blade Runner (1982), is dated Friday, November 15, 2019. On the downside, we have no offworld colonies. On the upside, we haven’t driven most animal species to extinction yet. So I consider that a win. 🙂

“No fees will be charged for the service.” isn’t nearly as catchy as “Lorem ipsum”.

Surreal Estate – Part 2

2019/01/11

Superman has his Fortress of Solitude. Batman has the Batcave. Wonder Woman has…an old abandoned barn?

Does she at least have an old rusty padlock on the door to the Barn of Paradise?

The tour of these rather modest accommodations were arranged by Sensation Comics #24 (December 1943) by Evelyn Gaines, Frank Harry, William Moulton Marston, Stan Aschmeier, Sheldon Moldoff, Harry G. Peter, Howard Purcell, and Paul Reinman.

Man, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics suddenly aren’t looking so hot…

Art of the Infernal Deal

2018/12/25

If the Devil wants to make a deal, being the world’s most uncompromising negotiator is one hell of an advantage.

Yeah, I think that’s pretty much how we all react when receiving socks and underwear for Christmas. 😛

This infernal gifting session has been brought to you by JLA #52 (January 2002) by Mark Waid, Cliff Rathburn, and Paul Neary.

Retraining Day

According to Blade Runner (1982), today’s the day that Zhora gains a new profession. 🙂

“Political Homicide”, eh? Guess euphemisms are a constant in every timeline…

Don’t. Insult. Santa’s. Daughter.

That’s less “rise and shine on Christmas Day and more “rise with a shiner on Christmas Day”.

The Year of The Running Man

2017/01/04

<sarcasm>Quick reminder that we have sixteen days left until President-Elect Donald J. Trump is sworn into office, replaces American democracy with a fascist regime, and creates a new deadly brand of reality television. Do you miss 2016 yet?</sarcasm>

I'll bet you really miss "The Apprentice" now. :P

I’ll bet you really miss “The Apprentice” now. 😛

Downer Ending

2016/12/31

As much as a hate going out on a low note, if 2016 seemed really crappy to you, then my pointing out that the movie versions of V For Vendetta (2006) and Atlas Shrugged: Part I (2011) both indicated that this was the year where things went to hell in a handbasket with a new Great Depression in the U.S. and the St. Mary’s Virus epidemic continuing to wreak havoc in the U.K., respectively, probably won’t make you feel any better. :/

If you thought this year was bad, just wait until 2017... :(

If you thought this year was bad, just wait until 2017… 😦

Remember that one black sheep in the family who shows up for Christmas gatherings and makes things weird for everyone?

Nice to know Harley’s niece and nephew consider her the quirky aunt. 🙂

This is not a good day to be an inhabitant of Tokyo. 😦

Yeesh, you’d think the Japanese would have a less blase attitude about nuclear disasters…
