The God Damn Space Hippies Episode

The God Damn Space Hippies Episode

On H&I tonight. The late great Charles Napier as “Adam.”

Purple-haired dude has an eggplant emoji on his forehead.

I wonder if the McKennas watched this one.

Don’t be a Herbert. One is the beginning. We reach.

"Don't Dare Stare At The Illustrated Man."

"Don't Dare Stare At The Illustrated Man."

“There are fearful pictures on his skin, but the most fearful thing is tattooed on his soul.” Radio spot for The Illustrated Man (1969), starring Rod Steiger. At the showing of Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood, it was the moment I laughed the loudest. I was the only person in the theater laughing at this.

A real shit movie, but a fantastic makeup job.

Looks like Jagger on...

"You know about the repressed transmission, of course."

"You know about the repressed transmission, of course."

“This is the 20th anniversary of the moon walk, you know. And way back when they’re giving us that ‘One giant step for mankind’ bit, another astronaut’s in the background yelling his fool head off, saying, “Oh, my God! What’s that over in the crater? What the hell is that?

“Well, NASA cuts him off just like that.”

Austin in 1989. All of the cool places they walk by are some bullshit...

"High Summer" (1999)

"High Summer" (1999)

And they shut him out of Paradise
Called him Lucifer and frowned
She took pride in what God made him
Even before the angels shot him down to the ground

He’s a light out of the darkness
And he wears a starry crown
If you see him nothing’ll shake him
‘Cos high summer’s got him low down

Viewpoints on the Moon: Heinlein, Clarke, Spongmonkeys

I’m sure they would all agree that the Moon is very useful everyone.

The Human Factor covers Conspiracy '87 (Brighton Worldcon)

<i>The Human Factor </i>covers Conspiracy '87 (Brighton Worldcon)

With commentary by Brian Aldiss. It’s remarkable to note how much has changed in thirty-odd years, and how much has stayed the same.

For a little context, here’s a rundown of the convention, including the winners.

Supercut of '80s Genre TV Intros Is A Dimension of Synth-Driven Cheese

Supercut of '80s Genre TV Intros Is A Dimension of Synth-Driven Cheese

A few quick observations:

1) I saw at least one episode of almost every one of these shows back in the day. Yes, even Powers of Matthew Star.

2) Man, title sequences used to be incredibly long-ass affairs.

3) WHERE THE HELL IS OTHERWORLD?

BONUS CONTENT/PALATE CLEANSER: The not at all cheesy, thoroughly awesome title sequence to the 1985 reboot of The Twilight Zone, with...

"Private Number" (1968)

The best love song ever? Yeah, pretty much. Heavily sampled over the years.

"I Paid The Price" (1973)

"I Paid The Price" (1973)

Delusions of grandeur. Dire straits. I ain’t walkin’ through your plastic Golden Gates.

Divorce song, jazz and country and R&B mixed together in an indelible aural trail mix for the soul. Then it gets all weird and Swedenborgian metaphysical at the end. One of many tracks that VM played in concerts during the ‘70s that never found a home on an LP, though I’d put even money on there...

The 1987 American Movie Awards (Spitting Image)

<i>The 1987 American Movie Awards</i> (<i>Spitting Image</i>)

“You call that a science fiction movie?”

Referenced in a Star Trek discussion earlier today by simon-on-the-river3: Spitting Image, the popular 1980s British comedy show featuring grotesque puppet caricatures of public figures and celebrities.

Most Americans’ exposure to the show was limited to the video for Genesis’s “World of Confusion,” which was in heavy circulation on MTV in...

Criterion Gets Ambersons Back

Criterion Gets Ambersons Back

Questions:

1) Does this mean Kane (the first Criterion release ever, on LaserDisc from 1984) is far behind?

2) Does it have the original fucking ending?

"Dues" (1975)

"Dues" (1975)

Maybe the most beautiful moment in American movies. It was kinda hot and wet.

Happy Valentine's Day Weekend ODdeck!!!

Happy Valentine's Day Weekend ODdeck!!!

Also Friday the 13th.

"That was 'The Monster Mash' for this beautiful Valentine's Day!"

"Why did you pick that song, anyway?"

"Well you know, it's a bunch of monsters, getting together, having a good time, keeping their evil in check!"

"You put in the wrong tape, didn't you?"

"Why are you doing this to me."
