I PROMISE I won't mention Gene Wolfe, an author who seems criminally undermentioned, who seems to be one of those 'author's authors' who influence everyone, but never reach mainstream success because their works are a bit difficult. Really, I won't even bring him up. » 3/26/14 1:28pm 3/26/14 1:28pm

My nine year old son has just started bringing home a few of these at a time from his school library. I was so excited to see them, as I'd completely forgotten about them, even though I was addicted to them as a kid. Strangely, I don't remember this one. I have a feeling I have intentionally compartmentalized the… » 3/26/14 12:54pm 3/26/14 12:54pm

I can't find the article right now, but there was observational evidence to support this idea in the form of a 'bruise' picked up in the cosmic microwave background radiation, which was something predicted might be present if there were other universes. Basically a 'bruise' of our universe coming in contact with… » 3/25/14 4:50pm 3/25/14 4:50pm

Thanks to io9 for hosting that, it was great fun. I loved that film. Jodorowsky is infectious in his enthusiasm and passion, and the ambition and passion he clearly inspired in those around him was inspiring. I really hope someone takes him up on that last somewhat tossed off suggestion of taking what is essentially an … » 3/21/14 3:59pm 3/21/14 3:59pm

Well, having been so obsessed with this show for a while, to the point of starting a blog about the crazy theories my friend and I hatched out, I can't help but be a little disappointed by the pat ending they gave us. That said, it was a great hour of television, and a great ending to the story they set out to tell… » 3/10/14 3:48pm 3/10/14 3:48pm

Nice review, although I think the show still has a few surprises for us. Regarding the 'supernatural', while I think your take on the focus on old and degenerate family histories is right, Lovecraftian horror is filled with references to people in the Bayou worshiping gods older than the ones we know. So while Faulkner … » 3/03/14 4:14pm 3/03/14 4:14pm

The thrust of this article is no doubt correct. And I think people have been barking up a lot of the wrong trees. HOWEVER, the art direction team in this show, along with the director and writer, have certainly been using thematic symbols throughout as indicators of major themes, like around the Hart household.… » 3/03/14 12:08pm 3/03/14 12:08pm

That's a great link! There has definitely been some strange language bandied about. My friend and I have been finding some interesting things, and wrote up a blog about it our observations. Some stuff I don't know that others have found. » 3/02/14 3:40pm 3/02/14 3:40pm
