Ask me... questions?
I always forget to pimp my monthly review digest here on Tumblr, but anyway - here is the March edition of POP CULTURE DESTRUCTION, where I basically talk about stuff that catches my fancy. This month: ROBOCOP, Jeff Vandermeer’s ANNHILATION, Nathan Edmonson and Alison Sampson’s GENESIS and the Warren Ellis MOON KNIGHT reboot, among others. Oh, and very early thoughts on the KILL LA KILL finale. Hell yeah!
I am writing this in an aluminium tube many miles above the ground that’s taking me all the way to Amsterdam. For work, not pleasure, natch. But anyway. Enjoy this reawakening of Schlock from the slumber that was hiatus – not that there’s any difference between hiatus and regular working hours at Schlock HQ, mind. Whenever I visit, all I see is the Hive Mind lounging around on lawn chairs, drinking gin-based cocktails* and plotting genteel way of murdering one another. Except for Teodor who, as recently revealed, is actually a Playmobil figure.
Been thinking I might as well pimp this dumb pop culture review I do over at Schlock Magazine on this here Tumblr, so that’s what I’m doing. Anyway, contained within are opinions on the likes of Pacific Rim (I liked it!) Bioshock Infinite (didn’t like it!) and Gatchaman CROWDS (surprisingly liked it), among others, as well as short news tidbits and other such nonsense. Go check it out, or don’t!
So the May Schlock Magazine Podcast will have discussion on Marvel’s Avengers Assemble (that is the official name over here no lie) and have a whiteboard at the current HQ so this nonsensical take on the Avengers got drawn/scribbled out.
I don’t know, I just like the idea of Iron Man with a bucket helmet and grumpy Team America Captain America?
Why yes it’s that time of the month - no, not that but THAT, when a new issue of Schlock Magazine is on the airwaves and I present my second column of a pop-cultural nature - POP CULTURE DESTRUCTION !
This issue, I take a look at John Carter, Mass Effect 3, A Game of Thrones (season 2) and even more!
It is all VERY EXCITING.
Just finished off the March Schlock podcast - I say that since I’m the one who actually gets to edit the damn thing… Anyway, this month’s edition is a pretty damn packed one, and we’re all quite proud of it (especially with the discussion and contributions on the subject of story and the telling thereof).
I also give a somewhat personal (and emotional) “tribute” to the late, great master, Moebius. Anyway, go listen!
