For +Jack Norris:

Lord Carter, master of chords lost and found, you have come to us in Barsoom's hour of greatest need. Without the ninth ray, our ships do not fly, our lights do not strobe in the righteous way of our ancestors, there is no happ'nin'. And without the ninth metal, there is no ninth ray. But kids these days, they do not wrap their drums in apt hide, not when dimensional traders ply them with chlen hide. No youngster will play the sacred 10-string axe with a plectrum of sorapus or even forandus, and when challenged, they say that only unobtanium makes a plectrum truly bitchin'. They will not growl in the manner of the northern forests nor shriek as though all the devils of the Kaolin Forests pursued, but instead they rely on the degenerate Ow-Toh Thun. I will not even speak of their fascination with ancient pan-flashers as retrograde as the lesser moon.

Truly, Lord Carter, without your help, Barsoom may cease to rock at all. Crank that mother.

What doesn't show in these pics is that both were at time of shooting sound asleep. :)

I learned this weekend that Steve Ditko is busily and successfully using Kickstarter. He and his business partner put out an issue at a time, mostly but not exclusively reprints, asking $2-2.5K and often getting $K or more. Their supporters seem happy, and they seem happy. I'm...peculiarly happy to know that even someone as extreme as he is can connect with an audience and make a go of it. They've done this 13 times now, with another underway.

And now, you know too.

Quick movie notes.

#1. *Evidence*, recommended by +Topher Gerkey. If it had been me on my own, I'd have bailed out 20-30 minutes in with a bad case of the "I don't care about any of these people" blues. But Topher and others said it paid off well, and they were right. That's darned ingenious! Well worthwhile in filling some late-night hours.

#2. *In Memorium*. That rarest of things, a found-footage film with no shaky-cam. The main characters are a guy with an unexpected terminal case of bone cancer already spread out of control and his girlfriend. He's set up their home with good-quality cameras fixed in sensible positions and with good-quality microphones, and proper computer controls for the whole operation, to get a useful account of his final weeks/months. Turns out the cancer's not the only problem, to put it mildly. Very nicely done.

#3. *The Abandoned*. The main character's a woman with an evoked rather than delineated history of mental illness who's taken a probably-crummy job as part of what's likely her last hope for retaining custody of her daughter. She's been hired on as one of two night-shift security people at a super-luxury residence building, abandoned mostly done thanks to boom times becoming bust times. Her co-worker's a jerk, the revealed cut corners piled up, and then the whole sealed-off wing with unseen whisperers turns up...yeah, it's one of those jobs. I enjoyed it all the way through, and then greatly enjoyed the part at the end that filled in all the gaps. Genuinely well-done.

Gretchen: Of course. (I also recommend science shows and other stuff. :) )

Topher: Right, particularly the "oh, look, here's a documentary right on tap", which ended up fitting so well.

Jerry: I love to share.

Gabriel: Thanks!
