Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

Maybe I Can Catch ‘Fast Times’ on HBO, Instead

All right, that’s better. I was afraid you folks were getting bored with the whole Punchline Fever thing, after the meager turnout the past couple of weeks. Today was quite encouraging, and I thank you.

(On the other hand, perhaps it means that the last couple of premises were just dreadfully stupid. Still, I can live with that. I’ll take ‘transiently asinine’ over ‘terminally dull’ any day. Now let’s just keep our fingers crossed on the ‘transient‘ thing, shall we?)

Anyway, in other news, I see that one of the cable channels is playing Swordfish this month, which seems kind of odd. From everything I’ve ever heard about that movie, I always assumed it was just an hour and a half of Halle Berry hanging out with her booblets front and center.

Or, more accurately, ‘front and a little bit to the left’ and ‘front and a few inches to the right’. But you know what I’m saying — it just seems like they’ll have to cut out an awful lot of material. Either that, or I’ve been grossly misinformed about the contents of this film. In any case, I see no reason to tune in. I’m not gonna risk sitting through a John Travolta monologue, if nobody’s gettin’ topless. I’ve been burned before. Can you say Battlefield: Earth?

All right. That’s enough for now. I just wanted to say ‘thanks’. And, you know, talk about boobies, just a little. But it’s been a long damned week, and I’ve got more work to get done this weekend, so I think I’m gonna call it a night and get some sleep. I’ll catch you loco gringos on the Saturday tip. I’m out.

    Heyyyyy, my favourite subject! Actually, the movie isnt worth sitting through Travolta for. And you get about 5 seconds of Berry boobage for your money.

    Battlefield Earth made me seriously think that Hollywood had finally tipped over the precipice of “how shit can we make a movie and still charge money for it?”

    Of course, sci-fi fans, like me, are kinda like battered wives. We go to a scifi movie, get slapped, and still go to the next one thinking “maybe this one will be good!”.

    I lost interest over sci-fi movies after all the disappointments after Star Wars movies. Nothing could compare to those in my book!
