Drive-By:Doxacon 2014

We've talked a lot about Christian groups who just don't 'get' S-F/Fantasy and try to hammer the genres into what they consider 'lawful'...So imagine my surprise to learn about Doxacon.

No... Doxacon is not a purgative.hmmm.  Well, maybe it is...The central idea behind Doxacon seems to be centered in this quote by St. Basil


Movie Review--Guardians of the Galaxy: I was Wr-Wr-Wr-Wrong

Well, after much goading and assertions that "the trailers don't do it justice, go see this film, you'll love it," and after several false starts due to car trouble and sceduling conflicts, The Husband and I finally got to go see "Guardians of the Galaxy" at a matinee showing in a nearly deserted ampitheatre-style cinema here in San Antonio.  In other words, we had the place to ourselves, so we felt kinda priviledged.


R2'sDay: A new book from Doctor Starr!

Doctor Charlie Starr, friend and contributor to the 'bot for many years, has a new (old) book out...  (Personally, I think that his name is a pretty spiffy S.F. name by itself).

Falling Skies: "Till Death Do We Part" (Season 4, Episode 9)


Not bad. This one was a little ridiculous in places, but had enough action, special effects and movement to make for a nicely watchable hour of television. Shakespeare it ain’t, but it held its narrative balance better than the more recent episodes. This is the best this show has been since the ghetto escape.
