Dragon Skull Washes Up on British Shore (Game of Thrones Ad Rules Everything)

  Remember the badass Game of Thrones dragon shadow ad that appeared in the New York Times, on the side of buildings and busses, etc? Well, in a way (a big way) this almost trumps that.

Ok, get ready movie nerds (ahem). Scream Factory unveiled the Blu-Ray box cover art for their upcoming release of Night of the Comet, one of the greatest sci-fi b-movies EVER MADE.

A Quick Thought On the Madness of Writers

  One of the paragraphs in this NYtimes.com article about the writer Franz Kafka begins, “We all know how he ate his food: he “Fletcherized” it, chewing each bite a hundred times before swallowing. He was almost six feet tall, meticulously groomed and preternaturally self-absorbed.” That got me thinking on the topic of writers, and creatives
