[WorldCon] WSFS Preliminary Business Meeting Liveblog 10

The agenda is available here. 0923: Welcome to the liveblog for the WSFS business meeting! Actual updates will come about ever 5-10 minutes starting around 10-ish local time ; we’ll see when the meeting gets called into order. Things will be a little different this year, because I’m actually sitting at the head table as ...

WorldCon Dublin schedule

Busy busy! IMPORTANT NOTE! This year I’m actually participating in the WSFS Business Meeting as the timekeeper (god help us) so I’m obviously not going to be able to liveblog the meeting. That said, I’m going to see about having one or two guest bloggers who share my love of pedantry and serpentines take over ...

[Movie] Crawl

This is going to be a challenge to myself: I want to talk about a movie that I enjoyed, but it’s not some kind of screaming glee of OMG THIS IS THE BEST EVER. It’s way easier to talk about things when you really love them, and easiest of all to brutally ice pick a ...

[Movie] Yesterday 2

I knew I had to see Yesterday the minute I saw the trailer. It had such a fun concept–the power goes out all over the world, and when it comes back up, failing musician Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) finds himself on an alternate Earth where the Beatles (and a few other random things we find out ...

Maybe it’s just bad writing

In general, I don’t have opinions about Game of Thrones because I haven’t watched it and I haven’t read it, and I don’t particularly care to. And yet my attention was drawn to this piece at Wired: Why the Writing in Game of Thrones Season 8 Feels Off Reader, I am annoyed. Miffed. One might even say, ...

[Movie] Detective Pikachu

And lo, I saw the Detective Pikachu movie even though I don’t really go here. My exposure to the Pokémon canon basically starts and stops with Pokémon Go! because I’ll take any excuse I can get to do some extra walking. (I used to play Ingress, actually, but the Go players are way less intense and scary and ...

[Movie] Avengers: Endgame 5

This post is nothing but atomic spoilers for Avengers: Endgame. 

The Twilight Zone: Replay and The Comedian 1

Two more episodes of the new The Twilight Zone, which is to say that I watched the new one from this week and finally got around to watching the first episode. Neither of them are exactly subtle, which is a-okay; I think particularly with “Replay,” there’s a need to not allow the audience plausible deniability ...

The Twilight Zone: Nightmare at 30,000 Feet 3

By total accident, I watched the second episode of the new Twilight Zone first. Which I think is fine, since it’s presumably all one-shot episodes anyway. And I think this was a good one. In Nightmare at 30,000 Feet, an investigative reporter named Justin Sanderson, who is still recovering from having seen some serious shit ...

A Place for Spoilery Us Screaming 2

I’m going to put all my screaming about this movie in the comments of this post, because it contains ATOMIC SPOILERS. If you want to read my non-spoilery short thoughts, I made a public post on Patreon about it here. (Comment moderation has been temporarily turned off so people can talk more freely. Please no ...
