Up in the Air Deciding; Down on the Floor Laughing

Another busy week. I was all up in the air today almost about everything. I was so undecisive of what I was going to do on this Saturday. I asked myself, "Am I going to go join friends to see Star Wars: The Phantom Menace 3D and then write a review of it or am I going to go to a video gaming tournament instead so I can write a review on that? And if I decide to see Star Wars, at what theatre and what time will I go see it?" In asking these questions I factored in the financial situation. Well it all lead to backing out on both those plans (though I'll still consider Phantom Menace 3D for another time) but maybe for all unforeseen reasons as opposed to just financial ones: I discovered while searching for a story for my Social Networking column at the most hilarious, eccentric geeky show that I've ever seen. It's a web series called "Smosh". Not even "Big Bang Theory" could make me laugh anywhere near as this series can. I strongly advise you to check it out. Though it does get a little obscene or maybe much depending on who you are. But I laughed to almost losing my stomach. You can read about it in my review of it first if you want. (In which I hope you want to!)

Until next week. . .

4 Online Sci Fi and Fantasy Conventions for a Shelter-In-Place

Credit: I know, it’s the third Saturday of the month and that we are supposed to have our Book-To-Movie this evening. It was supposed to be a review of “The Invisible Man” and its movie adaptations, including the new one that released at the end of last month . However, I wanted to refresh myself on the 1930s original and had to request my nearest library to order it on loan. But when it came I wasn’t able to pick it up because the library closed to take precaution against the Coronavirus. So I’m postponing the Book-To-Movie until the library re-opens which is impossible to say when that will be. I may, however, do a Book-To-Movie for another book in the next week or two, so keep tuning in here. Well, a book and movie review isn’t the only thing that’s being cancelled due to today’s version of the black plague. Because so many cities, ones here in the Sacramento region included, are going on shelter-in-place, sci fi and fantasy conventions are getting cancelled e

Book-To-Movie: Stephen King’s 'The Raft'

Credit: It's the third Saturday of the month and so that means it's time for another Book-To-Movie ! In a Book-To-Movie we review a book and its movie adaptation. One of the reasons I as a horror fan don’t read a lot of Stephen King’s work is because most of it consists of novels that go more than 400 pages. I have a short attention span when it comes to reading, ironically since I consider myself an avid reader, and so I normally won’t read a work that is much more than the equivalent to a 350-page mass market paperback. The other reason why I don’t read a lot of King’s work is that, as literary scholars will tell you, a lot of his writing is poor. However, he does have some good writing in his works, especially his earlier stuff, including his short horror tales. So if I read anything by Stephen King it’s usually his short stories or novellas. One of his collections I’ve read is Skeleton Crew which includes some of his good, or at least bette
