Re: Harlan Ellison's Watching.....

He has several fascinating things under way. The green lit tv program with the Wachowskis, several successful comic books and adaptations. He also wrote the basic drafts for THOR, so hardly an insignificant influence (from a boxoffice standpoint). But I agree this may be an attention getter rather t...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Not sure why I feel compelled to defend this, but... I was one of those who "bugged" Harlan. At first, I was not going to call. At least the first or even second day. But two things keep at me: what if he wants to talk, to walk through it? And what if by not calling it's interpreted that I...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

You don't want to know what Rush Limbaugh said. I was going to post it on the Pav but know better. He is pure evil scum. You don't do Facebook, Frank, but here was my comment upon Limbaugh yesterday. I've seen some of the remarks made today regarding Robin Williams' death from such intellectual lum...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

The Pav has crashed for some reason. Rick posted a brief note, but beyond that I'm as in the dark as you are. Some very sad details emerging today regarding Robin's demise. As several people here can readily attest, Depression (capital D) really fucks you up. Please. All of you. If you feel alone, o...

Re: Harlan Ellison's Watching.....

I agree with that sentiment if the only thing you look to is the Blockbuster. I wonder if Blade Runner could be made these days. Aliens possibly. Alien , not so much. Today you get Prometheus . Thoughtful science fiction is relegated to smaller budgets and stories...which I have no problem with, as ...

We do, and some utterly brilliant work (along with a few clinkers).

But, as was noted on one of the news programs: the true loss are those magical things we were going to get from him in the future.

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

No such thing as insignificant. I am sorry your day was bad, Chuck. More of the same or a new level of insanity? (I'm assuming, somehow, this relates to the fired employee and the assumption you will do her job now, too?)

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Thanks Frank. Despite reluctance, I did call him. He's devastated, of course. But we had a good, if short, chat.

He appreciates that so many people are thinking about him.

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

I will Doug. I'm resisting the urge to call. I am sure they just want to grieve in private.

I am sick.

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Uh, oh. Looks like Hamas, those innocent and misunderstood kidders, really need to get a better PR firm. I mean, this treatment and massacre of fellow Gazans can't be what really happened. Must be the Western Media making things up again. http://www.inquisitr.com/1405339/hamas-executes-dozens-of-ter...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Fisk was right five years ago. Now that would be thoroughly ineffective. This isn't about food or conditions, it's about religious and ethnic cleansing. Genocide.

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Frank...staying out of Iraq is precisely how IS was able to conquer large swaths of it and Syria. We enabled the jihadists by not interfering with their progress. In a way, the blood of innocent victims of the genocide is on our hands as well as the jihadists. These are truly, truly evil people. And...
