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

I wonder if the McKennas watched this one.

"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

Space.  It seems to go on and on forever.

Space.  It seems to go on and on forever.

But then you get to the end and a gorilla starts throwing barrels at you.

"How The Wachowskis Became George Lucas"

"How The Wachowskis Became George Lucas"

Nice essay over on Entertainment Weekly by Darren Franich about how the Wachowskis' post-Matrix career eerily parallels that of George Lucas after Return of the Jedi.

How the Wachowskis became George Lucas

In 1999, 16 years after Return of the Jedi, George Lucas released The Phantom Menace. It hit…

The Atlantic Monthly on The Last Unicorn

The Atlantic Monthly on <i>The Last Unicorn</i>

Hey O’Deckers: If you’ve got nothing else better to do on this pre-Thanksgiving Sunday, read this fantastic Atlantic Monthly essay by Yosef Lindell on Peter S. Beagle’s magisterial fantasy classic The Last Unicorn, now fifty years old. It’s a perceptive take on Beagle’s novel, observing that it’s a type of fantasy that gets by almost entirely without worldbuilding, relying instead on allusion...
