She Dreams in Digital (teaser)

I started to write last night and what came out was the beginning of an amazing story focusing on a strong female lead, great concept of a cyberpunk future, all around really friggin cool stuff. Then this morning I hop on facebook like most of us do and and what do I see? A trailer for a movie called Ex Machina. Now if you know me, you know as much as I love fantasy, Science Fiction is my home. But as I watched the trailer, Ive fallen in love with this concept. Whats up with female A.I./androids lately? First Ghost in the Shell starring the wrongfully picked Scarlett Johannson (should be Rinko Kikuchi of Pacific Rim fame jus sayin).  Am I on the right track? if so I need an artist for this. Whos down?

So excited and be honest, so are you.

Comics! East of West!

Hey there nerdcore crazies! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see Death ride in a post-apocalyptic future? Well I tell you it is absolutely awesome. In the dust covered Wild Wild West of the future, The civil war turned out quite different and many things are new and strange. This is one of those comics that even I with my gift of gab have a difficult time talking about. The awesomeness of the comic is really hard to put to words. Essentially the main character is Death. He is followed by two what I assume to be shape changing Indians as he goes off on a killing spree of people who (Spoilers). As he is on his adventure, the other three horsemen of the apocalypse wake up in child bodies that still have all memories and power and they go off on their own. With bodies piling up on both sides, the story will convalesce into an even more brutal and wildly done post apocalyptic future.

 

Now lets talk nitty gritty. I don’t really have a complaint about this comic.I love the artwork, I love the dialog. Everything flows seamlessly from one panel to another. If your not a big fan of westerns or science fiction it might be sort of hard for you to get into but overall the comic is devilishly well done. I can’t wait to read more in the future and I hope you will join me on that.

SCIENCE! DOCTOR WHO!

Sometimes I wonder in the unlimited parallel universes alongside ours if there really is a Doctor. Well for SCIENCE! is just narrowing my opinion of that down to definitely in one of these. Using the Kepler Telescope, NASA has found a transiting circumbinary multi-planet system. Two worlds orbiting two stars. Which is the exact description of Gallifrey, The Doctor’s home planet. It is also akin to the luxury-planet-builders’ planet Magrathea from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Though officially named: Kepler 47 (five values off from the answer to everything), you and I both know what every scientist and astronomer is calling it.

TV/Movies! Firefly and Serenity!

Take my love.

Take my land.

Take me where I cannot stand.

I don’t care, I’m still free.

You can’t take the sky from me.

Since I’ve found Serenity.

Ok so I’m hitting on  a Firefly kick today. I have been watching for about 3 hours now and I plan on spending the rest of the day watching the Greatest Show Ever Cancelled. Unless you have lived under a rock, I’m sure you know. However for some readers that might be out of the country or have indeed lived in a cave or under a rock, I’ll give the rundown. of the show.

Now without going into immense detail like I honestly would, This show takes place after as galactic civil war. Now I know some of you may be screaming Starwars. But no. Think of this show as a futuristic aftershock of the U.S. Civil war. The Serenity a Firefly class star ship is captained by one Malcolm Reynolds and filled with a motley crew of a merc, a pilot, the doctor and his sister who is just strange, the Shepherd, a ditzy mechanic and a *Ahem* Companion. They fly through the skies smuggling this, delivering that. Gunfights here and a bar fight there. It’s like the wild west in space. The acting is amazing and the action is just mapped out by pure awesome and win. There is nothing about the show I can truly find fault with. So if you can grab up the season DVD and the movie named Serenity (after the ship) I suggest you do it as soon as possible.
