I won’t lie — while I’m certainly impressed with brentalfloss’s musical and writing talent, I didn’t love his second album, Bits of Me, as much as I’d hoped to. Whatever came after that was going to impress me, but I wasn’t expecting something on the level of his first album, What If This CD… Had Lyrics?. Flossophy delivers on almost every level: musically, lyrically, and humorously. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves video games, funny music, and, yes, the occasional fart joke.
The concept of a world that’s opposite to our own isn’t a new one. I mean, even John Norman did it with his Gor novels. And the concept of playing with gravity isn’t new either. But mix them together and you might just end up with a film like Upside Down.
Look, I’m not going to lie to you: I had no fucking clue what was going on for most of the first half of Upstream Color, the second feature film from director Shane Carruth.

I reviewed Europa Report for Escape Pod.

It’s been a long time since America has been to the moon. Hell, at this point even the Chinese have sent a lander there, if not actual taikonauts yet. The last moon mission was Apollo 17, back in 1972.

Or was it?

The found-footage film Apollo 18 aims to show why we haven’t been back. And if this film is to be believed, there’s a damn good reason.

I’ve always enjoyed superhero stories — I’ve written a superhero novel and a couple of short-stories, and I’ve seen a lot of superhero TV shows and films. I recently saw “Man of Steel”, and I have to say that I may actually have enjoyed “Chronicle” — the story of three friends who gain superpowers — more than that huge-budget film.
I just recently finished Affliction, the latest Anita Blake novel by Laurell K. Hamilton, and while it had a lot of really good action sequences, some of the problems that plague the other tales are just as evident in this one.
It was a good book. Just, hard to explain in one short teaser paragraph.
To tell the story of Superman, you need a big movie. And with Man of Steel, we certainly got that. It’s just… maybe there’s such a thing as too big.

I have reviewed Monsters University over at Escape Pod.

I reviewed “Pilgrim of Eternity”, the first episode of Star Trek Continues, over at Escape Pod.
