Been a little under the weather, and part of that has been reading various Kindle samples of alien romance. You know, light, fluffy, something to amuse a tired brain… So I thought I might reprise this post in case we have any amused fanfic cover artists out there.
In – ahem – honor of Amazon constantly putting an advertisement for their latest paranormal alien romance at the bottom of my “recommended” emails, I propose people consider how said alien paranormal romances might be written in-universe, in the Stargate setting. Continue reading
I dunno who needs the bemused facepalms, but this is so well done….
Jurassic Park but with a Cat
I’m giving Your Highness a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars, despite the horrendous quality of the available English subtitles and a bit too much bathroom humor for my preference.

If you recall America’s Dumbest Criminals, you may have seen the bit I’m thinking of. Guy running from the cops at night, around buildings and through back alleyways, losing them time after time, yet they always found him again the next time he started moving….

I’d say The Pirates (2014) is a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars. It is Korean and draws heavily on a certain period in RL history for the setting, so it helps if you’ve got a passing familiarity with, for example, Yona of the Dawn Continue reading
…Oh man, that was fun. *G*
Ahem. I’m giving this movie a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars, Continue reading
