ORIGINAL FICTION: "The Taking Tree" by Kevin Long (2013)

Kevin Long's picture

The captain sat on a bench in a grassy clearing, looking at a huge tree, roughly a kilometer tall. He, and the grass, and the ridiculously large plant were inside an even more ridiculously huge geodesic dome a bit over nine kilometers across, and perhaps half that tall at its apex. There were smaller trees, plants, and flying animals, and bugs and rodents and bushes and walkways in there, as well as several of what appeared to be snack bars, though it was hard to be sure as they were buried under centuries of accumulated bird crap.

RETROSPECULATIVE TV: The Six Million Dollar Man: “Wine, Women and War” (Second Pilot Movie)

I recently learned that the word “Godawful” is actually very rude. It’s actually Victorian slang for “God damn awful.” I’ve been saying a horrible thing without realizing it since I was a little kid. I’ll have to stop using that word, or be very judicious with it from here on out.

With that in mind: This is a Godawful movie.

EPISODE REVIEW: The Legend of Korra: “A Breath of Fresh Air,” “Changes,” and “The Earth Queen” (Season 3, Episodes 1-3)

I’m probably not going to be reviewing this series because, honestly, I just kind of don’t like reviewing TV shows anymore. I don’t know why. Just the same, SOMEBODY should be reviewing this. It’s the best cartoon on TV, and at this point the Avatar franchise has provided five years of great entertainment. Four of them very solid, the fifth kinda’ ‘eh’ and very uneven, but still not bad.

Babylon 5 appears in a Samsung Commercial! (And Trek, too. And The Jetsons...)

Yowza!

Samsung's "Galaxy Gear" watch came out last year. It's basically a cellphone you wear on your wrist. This is basically a daydream people have had since Dick Tracy's Two-Way Wrist Radio, and it's always been the stuff of Science Fiction.

Samsung knows this (Or at least their advertising firm does) and so they put together a commercial that's nothing but clips of people talking into their wrists from a dozen SF shows and movies.

Babylon 5 turns up! Twice!
