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.

Mori Kim Marr’s personal force-field of drugs and drink has worn thin: she’s a burned-out teenager in a burned-out world, an Earth wracked by wars and rumors of wars, plagues and disasters, the hopelessness of every human heart. Mori couldn’t care less; just bring her the next fix, please. But when an artificial woman from the 19th Century and a boy with psionic powers wander into the smoke and squalor of Mori’s favorite watering hole, gore-drenched violence and city-wide destruction erupts, catapulting Mori and her new-found “friends” into the thick of a battle that began long ago, a war that has raged since before the dawn of civilization, a blood-feud fought and overseen by the sole-survivor of an ancient, pre-human race: Trista Ska Shearn, last of the Cantarans. Trista has been waiting 65,000 thousand years for this, the final battle; she has waited millennia for this glum, sallow teenager, Mori Kim Marr. For Mori is… the Exit Vector.

Space Battleship Yamato 2202’s Sequel “2205: The New Voyage” Hits Theaters in Fall 2020

a6faef73936860dfbddc9cc95d52dac11567404415_full

Well I’ll be damned; looks like they’re going all the way with remaking the entire series! I’m intensely curious, as I was less than 100% thrilled w/ 2202, even if they did accomplish the mind-numbing feat of combining both endings of Saraba Yamato and Yamato 2. We all know the original New Voyage served largely as a  prelude to Be Forever, so we’re looking at Yamato material for years to come… assuming we’re here to see it, that is…

From Crunchyroll:

Following the teaser announcement six months ago, the official website for the Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love anime series confirmed today that its sequel titled Space Battleship Yamato 2205: Aratanaru Tabidachi/The New Voyage is scheduled to be screened in Japanese theaters in the fall of 2020. As the title suggests, its story is set three years after 2202, and is expected to be produced as a remake of the 1979 TV special Space Battle Ship Yamato: Aratanaru Tabidachi/The New Voyage.

Shoji Nishizaki, an adapted son of the Yamato anime franchise’s original producer Yoshinobu Nishizaki, will serve as executive producer again. And Harutoshi Fukui, who worked on 2202 as series composition writer in place of the first series 2199’s director Yutaka Idebuchi, is confirmed to stay in the same position. Other staff members will be announced at a later date.

TREMENDOUS NEWS! S. Elizabeth publishes a book!

ART OF OCCULT

So proud of my ghoulfriend!

The Art of the Occult is a visual feast of eclectic artwork informed and inspired by spiritual beliefs, magical techniques, mythology and otherworldly experiences. 

Mystic and occult practices date back centuries, but why, after so much scientific progress, do we still chase the esoteric? Over the past two centuries, artists have been drawn to these unknown spheres and have created curious artworks that transcend time and place. From theosophy and kabbalah, to the zodiac and alchemy; spiritualism and ceremonial magic, to the elements and sacred geometryThe Art of the Occult will explore:

  • the symbolic and mythical images of the Pre-Raphaelites;
  • the automatic drawing of Hilma af Klint and Madge Gill;
  • Leonora Carrington‘s surrealist interpretation of myth, alchemy and kabbalah;
  • the theosophical practices of Mondrian and Kandinsky;
  • and contemporary tattoo artists inspired by sacred geometry.

Featuring prominent, marginalised and little-known artists, The Art of the Occultcrosses mystical spheres in a bid to inspire and delight. Divided into thematic chapters (The Cosmos, Higher Beings, Practitioners), the book acts as a light introduction to the art of mysticism – with short chapter introductions examining each practice, followed by a series of carefully curated artworks, supported by explanatory captions.The art of the occult has always existed in the margins but inspired the masses, and this book will spark curiosity in all fans of magic, mysticism and the mysterious.

Molly Big Witch Energy Hi (resized)

Ye Gods! So proud of Drax Childe Prime! Now if I could just convince her to change her major. Social work. Jesus. But I am hardly in a position to complain! I am rightly chuffed by my precious witch-powered charge. Onward!

Button, Button (We Went a Little Crazy With The Button) and Other Entries…

What button, you ask? Why, this button, right there on the amazon KDP control panel.

EMy-SseXYAAJG2f

“Create paperback.” So innocent. We’ll get to The Button soon enough. But first…

IMG-2005

Entry! It’s not only the last day of the year but the last day of the decade. Many folks on the web are creating best-of lists, as well as lists of accomplishments and lands visited, books published and goals attained. (I see nary a list of BIGGEST REGRETS or WORST MISTAKES, etc. Just sayin’.) Anyway, I’m not going for any of that. I’m just offering a few snaps of December 31 2019, like The Sun, above, and my current bureau shelf, below.

My kids are glorious, yes. But boy, the extant hardcopy Drax library is woefully thin, even when spiced up with the Barsoom Design business card (like, big deal). Which brings us to the…

Entry! Button, Button. Oh that damn button.

Create_pprback_button

No, it’s not black and red on the Kindle Direct Publishing control panel but that damn button sure burned a fiery red mark in my brain for the last week and a half, during which I prepped files for paperback editions of no less than three of my books, second time around for DESCENT and first-ever for DOOMTROOPERS and the poems, ALWAYS APOCALYPSE.

3_up_BOOKSHOT

The reason? Well, pure vanity, obviously. But also the simple desire to produce physical copies of works that still matter to me, physical copies that I can give to my kids, maybe kind and indulgent friends. I simply miss making books. And evil amazon’s print on demand service is stick-stone-stupid; clumsy, but easy to use and each copy costs only pennies to produce. Besides, as much as it might seem I’m looking backwards, I really am inspired to move forward…

HEXEXS_Final_Type.jpg

… and complete unfinished major works…

…so, Entry! Here’s to the 2020s, here’s to The Future.

So mote it be.
