Happy #AlienDay! I wrote a piece for FANGORIA.com on the way in which Scott’s Alien trilogy hearkens back to Frankenstein and the claustrophobic castles found in classic Gothic horror tales.

“It Can Be Done.” An Earth Day Message

 

In summer 2018, ESA joined with the musician Vangelis and the family of scientist Prof. Stephen Hawking to beam a message marking his passing to the nearest black hole. On 22 April 2020, Earth Day, we’re transmitting this poignant message to all of planet Earth – as a message of hope, to say that, by working together, we can overcome this crisis and others facing humankind.

The message reads: “I am very aware of the preciousness of time. Seize the moment. Act now.

“I have spent my life travelling across the Universe inside my mind. Through theoretical physics I have sought to answer some of the great questions but there are other challenges, other big questions which must be answered, and these will also need a new generation who are interested, engaged and with an understanding of science.

“How will we feed an ever-growing population, provide clean water, generate renewable energy, prevent and cure disease and slow down global climate change?

“I hope that science and technology will provide the answers to these questions, but it will take people, human beings with knowledge and understanding to implement the solution.

“One of the great revelations of the space age has been a perspective that has given humanity on ourselves. When we see the Earth from space we see ourselves as a whole; we see the unity and not the divisions. It is such a simple image, with a compelling message: one planet, one human race.

“We are here together, and we need to live together with tolerance and respect. We must become global citizens. “I have been enormously privileged through my work to be able to contribute to our understanding of the Universe. But it would be an empty Universe indeed, if it were not for the people I love and who love me.

“We are all time travellers journeying together into the future. But let us work together to make that future a place we want to visit. Be brave, be determined, overcome the odds. It can be done.”

Thank Satan for MAD MEN

1489785524-mad-men-style

Audience plays an episode of MAD MEN daily at three convenient time periods: 10am, 3pm, 7pm, all EST. It’s great. One episode a day is the anti-binge, and it helps to form order and structure when one has a ridiculous amount of free time.

FICTION: What I WON’T Be Working On During The Pandemic

HEAVY cover

No way, True Believer. I opened up Gravity to kick it around the other day, read through it, and basically groaned. No thanks. The book’s about a rock band coming within inches of getting signed to a major label against the backdrop of a global crisis. I just said No Way. Uh uh. Not now. It’s both a question of “too close to home” and the dismaying sense that so much of my portrait of how society would behave during said global crisis was simply wrong. I’m focusing on works set far, far away from pandemic and lockdown, Dark August and MaxVonSydX3.

That is all. Carry on.

POST-PUNK ICONS REIMAGINED AS MARVEL HEROES

A.V. Club reports:

Brazilian Artist Butcher Billy has reimagined a number of post-punk and new-wave icons as Marvel superheroes (he did DC earlier), and the results, a few of which are below, are perfect. Siouxsie Sioux turns into the Scarlet Witch, Mark Mothersbaugh becomes Iron Man, and John Lydon (a.k.a. Johnny Rotten) turns into a scowling, bird flipping Wolverine. While it’s interesting to think about how these icons’ personalities would mesh with each superhero, it’s also interesting to think about how much better or worse each of these musicians would be at being superheroes than their fictional counterparts. Would Billy Idol-Thor even be worthy of carrying Mjolnir? Does Spider-Ian Curtis have the wherewithal to keep dealing with the Green Goblin day in, day out? Is Hulk-Morrisey somehow more mopey than Bruce Banner? Knowing how insane comic book…
