I have a theory

  (Planet of the) Apes travel back in time from the far, far, faaaaar future to conquer pre-Apocalypse earth with their giant lizard cyaborg. We are saved by the real giant lizard and — ironically — Caesar, from whom the Ape founder took his name. Also explains the Apes’ desire to get control of the… Read more »

Multiple Santas

Posted by & filed under BLOG, Christmas!, Theirs.

Tis the season! That’s my 10th, 20th, 30th and 40th Century Santas. (10th also HERE ) They’re naturals for a teamup versus Copplestone’s Snowmen and Reaper’s Krampus. And let us not forget The Tick: [And, psst. I’m working on a 50th Century Santa. Time will tell.]

Damnation Van Die Drop!

  Feast on this triptych! What a setting! Twilight: 2000, Cyberpunk and High Colonies were among my favourite games of the ’80s and early ’90s. I never got around to layering them together in any formal way. But I sometimes — even now — fever dream about what could have been. Then I watch Outland.

A Dim View of ’19

Posted by & filed under BLOG, Film.

  That’s what the ’80s had. It was dystopias as far as the eye could see: Blade Runner (’82), The Running Man (’87) and Akira (’88) are all set in 2019. It seems the stress of the Cold War-ending Reagan era was a sweet-spot match with the (more or less) single generation distance of that… Read more »
